    Pakistan’s greatest Test batsman Younis Khan seems to have decided to now pursue a career in coaching, as he will be participating in a Level 3 Coaching Course on April 16 in Lahore.

    As per the local media reports, Younis, who retired from the Test cricket last year after becoming the country’s most successful Test cricketer with 10,099 runs, will participate in the course. It is being organized by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and will be conducted by Australians.

    Former Test-spinner Akram Raza is also participating in this course. Back in 2011, the PCB removed Raza, who was then an umpire in Pakistan’s domestic matches, from umpiring after he was arrested on charges of betting on Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.

    However, Raza was reinstated to the PCB umpiring panel in 2012 after he was cleared of the charges of illegal betting.

    Younis has earlier served as the mentor and batting coach of Pakistan Super League franchise Peshawar Zalmi, which ended this year’s tournament as the runners up.

    Once he completes all coaching courses he can be brought in as a batting coach for Pakistan. He will be much better than a Grant Flower

    Its about time that a qualified Pakistani coach comes into the set up. Most previous Pakistani coaches get into their role solely based on their playing qualities rather than coaching skills.

    I hope he does it as a box ticking exercise and not try to follow it to the letter of the law.

    Look at Aqib, has all the qualifications and all he has to show for it is changing actions and destroying every promising pak pacer that he’s worked with
