    Former Pakistan captain Younis Khan declined rejected the offer to coach Pakistan U-19 team after PCB didn't consider his demand of simultaneously being appointed the chief selector of the colts set-up.

    PCB wanted to follow BCCI's successful model of Rahul Dravid coaching the India U-19 and A team, which acts as a feeder for the national squad.

    "The idea was to have a high-profile cricketer work with the junior players on long-term basis instead of the old practice of having lesser known names attached to the Pakistan under-19 side," a PCB official said.

    It is learnt that PCB turned down Younis' demand as dual role of chief selector and head coach would have led to Conflict of Interest.


    "At the moment, it appears that Younis will not be working for the PCB as he has made it clear he wants total independence to work and get results with the junior team," he added.

    Younis, who retired from all cricket in 2017 after becoming the first Pakistani batsmen to reach 10,000 Test runs, is known to be a tough customer and very straight forward.

    In the past, he has made no bones of the fact that he was not happy with the workings of the PCB and some of its officials.

    The Pakistan under-19 team recently had its tour to Sri Lanka postponed indefinitely due to the bomb blasts in Colombo and surrounding areas while it is due to tour South Africa in June as it prepares for the junior World Cup.

    All respect for his achievements and experience as a player but that was an unrealistic demand for someone who doesn't have any significant coaching experience on his resume.

    He should have accepted the job only as a coach for now and slowly should have taken everyone into confidence to be entrusted with the selector's role as well... but even then that's not an ideal scenario for one guy to keep 2 important jobs in a shoddy setup as that of PCB

    He has always been arrogant. At the end of the day it’s his decision his life. We can only wish for him to coach

    Neveemind, they couldn't reach an agreement. Pretty pathetic tbh... PCB for not giving him full control and Younus for his damn ego and not just taking the opportunity.

    *sigh*

    Pakistan cricket loses.

    Should of just told Younis to do whatever he likes, even if you don't mean it that's how you need to deal with Younis.

    Younis has always been a control freak. There's a reason most jobs are separated and it's so proper time and attention can be given to each role.

    Is he going to be scouting u15-u19 tournaments as a chief selector or is he going to be working with and coaching a select group of players into stars of the future.

    It just shows he wants the prestige of multiple titles but isn't interested in the graft of the actual work.

    Loses what? When he was captain he dealt with junior players by publicly shouting at them on the field in front of millions watching on TV like he did with Amir.

    That's not going to improve the one thing our players lack and that's self-confidence and the ability and belief that they can do things by and for themselves.

    Younis Khan was a legend, do you know our U-16s just lost a series against Bangladesh? Twice in three back to back Asia cups our U-19 Team could not even make the final Our team went 69 all out against India in the semi final before that it was 70 all out and 50 all out against Afghanistan U-19 in the Asia cup for U-19s. We won't play cricket if this keeps happening. Look at England almost all their players were in an U-16 tour apart from two.

    Our cricket is hijacked by Mafia.

    If someone credible doesn't take over these kids will not progress. Younis will pick on merit based then help them. He may have had problems with team mates but younger kids would respect him. Look how Dravid is with the Indian U-19 lads, the way Dravid has helped them is showing affect. Younis would be like a father figure for them. Right now they have some randomer who probably hasn't played cricket so the bond is not the same I've also heard selection process is corrupt. No way can I believe that Younis would bully a kid, he's not like that.

    PCB - Younis Khan fail to reach deal

    *ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) has failed to reach an agreement with Pakistan’s former batting great Younis Khan to get him into the under-19 coaching set-up.*

    According to *ESPNcricinfo*, the reason for the fallout were that both parties couldn’t agree on his salary demands, while the other pertained to the job profile, as the PCB had proposed Younis only be a mentor and a coach but he wanted a say in selection as well.

    Younis, who retired from international cricket some two years ago, is the country’s most successful Test batsman amassing over 10,000 runs in this format. It was further learnt that the idea to bring Younis into Under-19 set-up was initiated by current PCB chairman Ehsan Mani.

    PCB’s managing director Wasim Khan eventually held a number of meetings with Younis, but financial issues always led to failure.
