Saqlain revealed that the coaches at the NHPC are unaware of the reasons behind Younis Khan’s resignation as they are currently busy with the NHPC camp.

Former batting coach, Younis Khan, was appointed for the role in November 2020 on a two-year contract. However, just a few months after his appointment, he and the Pakistan Cricket Board mutually decided to part ways.

According to the rumor mill, Younis resigned due to an altercation with the fast bowler, Hasan Ali, and because of a  poor relationship with top PCB officials.
