Shoaib Akhtar Says Pakistan Has a Better Batting Coach Than Younis Khan

Rawalpindi Express, Shoaib Akhtar, believes that the batting coach role does not suit Younis Khan, adding that he should have been given the responsibility of grooming players at the National Cricket Academy.

Suggesting his alternate, Akhtar said that Mohammad Yousaf was a better choice to be the team’s batting coach. In an interview with a local TV channel, the legendary fast bowler said that PCB made the wrong call in appointing Younis as the batting coach.
