Given the role by head coach Misbah ul Haq, Younis will work as a batting coach for Pakistan tour of England from August to September. The tour comprises of three T20I matches and three Test matches.
Younis said: “For me, there has never been a bigger honor and a better feeling than to represent my country and I feel privileged to have been again offered the opportunity to serve it for a challenging but exciting tour of England.
“The Pakistan side includes some immensely talented cricketers who have the potential to achieve greater heights. Together with Misbah-ul-Haq, Mushtaq Ahmed, and [fast-bowling coach] Waqar Younis, we will try to make them better and prepare them as best as we can with on and off-field coaching and guidance.
“We all know English conditions demand not only precise technique but patience and discipline, and if you can master these, then you will not only excel in England but anywhere in the world. With the quality we have in the team, I think we have a good chance to produce good results if we prepare properly, get our processes right, and hit the ground running as soon as we land.”
It is to be noted that Mushtaq Ahmed has been appointed as the spin bowling coach along with Younis’ granted role.
