KABUL – Legendary Pakistan batsman and former captain Younus Khan, reportedly has agreed to take the opportunity, as per Afghan board claims.
Younus, who is playing his last Test for Pakistan against West Indies, accepted the batting coach job with Afghanistan cricket team, claimed the chairman of the minnow’s board Atif Mashal on Thursday.
In an interview with BBC Urdu, Mashal said that the contract is being finalised and they are considering the demands made by the 39-year-old, as reported Tribune.
“We haven’t reached an agreement but we want to hire the services of the best players for our team,” said Mashal, adding that Younus has said yes to the proposal.
“We are looking at our possibilities and his demands,” said Mashal about the agreement.
Amid recent border tensions between Pakistan and Afghanistan, Mashal thinks cricket can play a big role in serving as the ice-breaker between the countries.
