PCB, Younis Khan Part Ways

The Pakistan Cricket Board and batting coach Younis Khan have mutually agreed to part ways ahead of Pakistan's tours of England and West Indies. Khan began his role in November last year on a two-year contract that was scheduled to run till the T20 World Cup in 2022.

Khan was appointed ahead of Pakistan's tour of England last year to join head coach Misbah ul Haq, bowling coach Waqar Younis and spin-bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed in the team management. That was also his first appointment with the PCB since his retirement in 2017.

Pakistan had mixed results since he took over as batting coach. In five overseas tests in England and New Zealand, Pakistan drew two and lost three before beating South Africa across formats - both home and away - followed by a successful tour to Zimbabwe.
