    [VIDEO] Younis Khan drops out of the Level 3 Coaching Course in Lahore

    https://www.brecorder.com/2018/04/16...-mistreatment/

    Pakistan’s greatest Test batsman Younis Khan, who had decided to pursue a career in coaching after participating in a Level 3 Coaching Course in Lahore, is now returning to Karachi after he was asked to stay in the room of a senior management official.

    The leading runs scorer for Pakistan tweeted a video of him, revealing the irresponsible act of the National Cricket Academy’s staff in Lahore.

    “I have arrived here in Lahore at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). As you all know I am here to take part on Level 3 course. But bad luck is that, when I reached here, there was no information about me,” Younis said in a video message.

    “I came here after receiving a mail from NCA, in which it was written that it will be an honour for us if you participate in this training pregame. This message motivated me and led me to here.”

    “When I arrived, I was asked to stay in this room for a night, which belongs to a senior management official. I can’t stay here without permission, so I have decided to travel back to Karachi.”

    “I can’t take part in the course, where I was asked to share other’s room. It is an embarrassment for Younis Khan,” he added.

    Younis, who retired from the Test cricket last year after becoming the country’s most successful Test cricketer with 10,099 runs, was asked to 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 matches.

    Isn't he there to participate in a Level 3 Coaching Course? Why is he making an issue on what room was he provided to stay in??

    Haha classic Younis. He says he doesn't want to cause any trouble or awkwardness for the manager who's room he's been given. At the same time, he's opening the guy's private cupboards live on a social media video

    Irresponsible from NCA management but a typical OTT reaction from younis khan.

    With this toxic attitude, I wonder if PCB should allow him near the kids who aspire to be cricketers. He takes things way too personally and kids can become casualties of his ego.

    Depends - my first instance was to think of this as the usual YK tantrum and it definitely is that. And yes it shows how poor he is at influencing people (which is why I have always advocated that he must never be part of any administrative structure related to Pakistan cricket)

    BUT.... despite all of the above, this is poor by the organizers and needs to be advertised far and wide. I am also perturbed that ppl associated with illegal betting are simply allowed to roll up to this place for a new career

    Bro see how India, Australia and other cricketing Nations treat their stars.
    You need to treat a guy like Younis in a much better way; honestly there shud have been a proper reception for him.

    Yes I wonder how they would have treated a player who blackmailed his way into a World Cup squad by threatening to retire from tests

    A player who decided to go fishing during tough forgein tours
    A player who dragged a fan into a room and beat him with a shoe

    I know for sure that if he was Australian, younis would have had a national team ban long ago

    Amazing player, but an absolutely egotistical nutcase

    Oh boo hoo, he didn't get the VVIP "star" treatment at the academy where he was signed up as a student for the coaching course. Is he there to study and get certified or get 'star' treatment?

    He didn't join academy; he was invited by the academy to join the camp saying it would be an honour for them.

    I'm sure he didn't pull any stunts demanding VVIP treatment when he went to get his training in England.

    Typical desi mentality. All good behavior and civilized when interacting with others, but in a 'home' environment, start throwing weight around.

    Please tell me one thing. Younis had to take a course in coaching, right? It is for his own coaching career. Why on earth is he not spending his own money on accomodation and other things? Ek to coaching bhi karwao aur nakhry bhi uthao sahab ke.

    He Really isnt the classy man he is often made out to be. The famous picture where 2 guys are holding back Inzi whilst he was running off laughing comes to mind.

    As soon as I saw the video and when he mentioned himself in the 3rd person, thats when I knew this guy really isnt correct in the head.

    Tendulkar, Ponting, Lara or even Shane warne wouldnt do something as egotistical as that. I think PCB should make a point by saying enough is enough. He is by far the biggest trouble maker out of all the guys that have served Pakistan for as long as he did.

    If this is exactly the fact stated (regarding accommodation), then I think the reaction is predictable and expected as well. YK has a bad reputation, therefore people are missing the big picture here.

    It's not about YK's ego, rather lack of professionalism from PCB. YK had been in that academy many times, and finding a place in Lahore for a night isn't a big deal for him, BUT there is a standard protocol of everything. They invited one of countries best ever players for a coaching program, then he had to be accommodated in a last minute makeshift arrangement - it may fit Eritrean Cricket Board (no disrespect intended), but not for the 2nd largest Cricket Board in world.

    I give a real life example - Govt. officials often attend seminars & work-shop in different cities. Imagine a Govt. official at the rank of say Assistant Commissioner/ Astt. Secretary goes to another city for a seminar and finds accommodation outside protocol, say sharing at someone's booked room or at some official's home for a night ...... if it's a Secretary, someone will pay for it and if it's a minister - someone's whole family might pay for it. Say any of us in PP has booked a hotel room; then upon arrival, hotel management tells that, there is a change in plan; I doubt how many here will accept with a smile - personally, I'll simply change the hotel if I am not satisfied with the change, if alternatives are available. And, I'll definitely lodge a written complaint in any case.

    What YK did, many of us here would have done so, if he/she had the status of YK, and rightly so. What YK did wrong is that he put his own name in it - that's education or lack of it; a more polished person would have said the same in 3rd person.

    It's lack of professionalism by PCB, regardless of YK or a common trainee. He was invited, hence people are thinking it's a favor for YK - he should accept whatever ...; if it was a paid program, then everyone would have said exactly opposite, since he has paid for the service. Personally, if I were YK, I would have attended the courses, but would have stayed at my own arrangements for the whole period - to make a point, and I would have definitely made sure that public knows it.

    Forget about Sethi (nothing personal, it's PCB Chairman), if any of his ******* suffered same, it would have been a big issue. In fact, it won't ever happen to a PCB official - they are the custodian of PAK cricket, YK was simply a servant and he was well paid for his labor ......

    Very unprofessional and sick of NCA staff to treat their former test cricketer like this. If they had a problem in accomodation they could've got a hotel room for the invitee for a night till next day when the program was suppose to start. Most probably NCA did'nt want to spend money so they pushed a former test cricketer into senior mgmt. room. Doubt such pathetic things are done by other boards.
    Given the amount of budget is spent on these jokes in the NCA. These kinds of shenanigans are really shameful.

    I am surprised by the reaction here.

    Younis Khan did absolutely the right thing. The guy has scored countless runs for Pakistan team and to be treated in such a manner is ridiculous!

    And those who are calling him out for posting this online... what else is he meant to do? keep quiet and take the rubbish from NCA?

    Seriously, reading some of the comments here. Have you guys bothered to even read or heard as to what happened? What you are describing is completely contrary to the actual events.

    He turned up to NCA as advised in the letter and they had no idea he was coming. They are asking him to stay in the room of another official, without permission of the official. Sounds pretty terrible from NCA. I don't understand how Younis is at fault.

    We as a nation aren't known for being professional so it shouldn't be too much of a shock if the right accommodation wasn't arranged in time. At least he was offered a clean room of some senior level person and not the janitors room.

    He says he doesn't want to use someone else's room while showing the wardrobe of the uninformed person to the whole world.

    Making a public video of the issue is over the top reaction, he should have given his complaints in person and directly to those involved. Besides he did end up using the room since there was no other option available. So flying back the next day was really unnecessary,since he was only asked to spent one night in that room.

    Sad to witness grown men acting but-hurt and whining to public for sympathy points.

    It's not about YK's ego, rather lack of professionalism from PCB. YK had been in that academy many times, and finding a place in Lahore for a night isn't a big deal for him, BUT there is a standard protocol of everything. They invited one of countries best ever players for a coaching program, then he had to be accommodated in a last minute makeshift arrangement - it may fit Eritrean Cricket Board (no disrespect intended), but not for the 2nd largest Cricket Board in world.

    I give a real life example - Govt. officials often attend seminars & work-shop in different cities. Imagine a Govt. official at the rank of say Assistant Commissioner/ Astt. Secretary goes to another city for a seminar and finds accommodation outside protocol, say sharing at someone's booked room or at some official's home for a night ...... if it's a Secretary, someone will pay for it and if it's a minister - someone's whole family might pay for it. Say any of us in PP has booked a hotel room; then upon arrival, hotel management tells that, there is a change in plan; I doubt how many here will accept with a smile - personally, I'll simply change the hotel if I am not satisfied with the change, if alternatives are available. And, I'll definitely lodge a written complaint in any case.

    What YK did, many of us here would have done so, if he/she had the status of YK, and rightly so. What YK did wrong is that he put his own name in it - that's education or lack of it; a more polished person would have said the same in 3rd person.

    It's lack of professionalism by PCB, regardless of YK or a common trainee. He was invited, hence people are thinking it's a favor for YK - he should accept whatever ...; if it was a paid program, then everyone would have said exactly opposite, since he has paid for the service. Personally, if I were YK, I would have attended the courses, but would have stayed at my own arrangements for the whole period - to make a point, and I would have definitely made sure that public knows it.

    Forget about Sethi (nothing personal, it's PCB Chairman), if any of his ******* suffered same, it would have been a big issue. In fact, it won't ever happen to a PCB official - they are the custodian of PAK cricket, YK was simply a servant and he was well paid for his labor ......
    After reading your post I do have more sympathy for Younis. However him flying back the next day does come across as a "too cool for school" kind of behavior.

    I can give you examples of Bollywood celebrities with countless years i.e. 20-30 years of services to the Indian film and entertainment industry and these guys who were well within their rights to ask for royal treatment accepted short term last minute make shift arrangements.

    That's the part I find the most disappointing. NCA isn't a holidays wellness resort. I am assuming he went their to improve his coaching abilities which in return would benefit the Pakistani youth. Leaving the whole program for one stupid room just shows he isn't serious about helping the kids.

    Complaints are welcome but there's a proper way to express them.

    Was privileged to be part of an event in Goa at the end of February where Gavaskar was the chief guest - and he was utterly humble, even making it a point to take down names of the folks who co-ordinated his stay, and gave them autographed bats afterward. He had also just flown back from South Africa via Mumbai, and even though he was being paid a lot of money for the appearance - it was still commendable of him for not only being so thoughtful, but also giving a rousing and topical speech on innovation in cricket when he was called up.

    Younis Khan and this video seems the polar opposite.

    I don't like the guy but here younis is right.
    Its like you invite a guest to stay with you in your house and when he/she arrived, you said "we don't have a room for you, why not you slerp in someone else's room". How would the guest feel about it.
    And younis wasn't just an ordinar guest in NCA. He is a former captain and a renowned player.

    While the NCA staff was unprofessional, I'm not sure it required such a reaction. YK is there for the Level 3 Coaching Course and that's the only thing he should keep in his mind.

    You won't make a good coach if you can't let things slide from time to time.

    He is celebrity. He can stay anywhere. If a bollywood hero does this than understandable at some extent but a sportperson have been worst place than this specially starting of his career. It reminds me DK. He is Sr since 2005 (?) and played with several big guns but he chose to go out of his comfort zone in mumbai with kunal and improved his big shots. I have read his interview somewhere how he retrained after drop in price from 11 crore to 2 crore.

    I see Younus' point, but it is a case of throwing a hissy fit at the end of the day. People saying he has no right to be annoyed are wrong though, he has a point, but I think this is over the top and publicly saying it like this is unprofessional and unnecessary.

    This is the way he gets his way, you can't be a nice guy like Fawad Alam and keep accepting slap after slap from these PCB buffoons, the only way you can get your way is showing how they treat their players in such an unprofessional manner. Fawad needs to take trick from Younis' playbook and learn to create a fuss about things, otherwise he should move to Canada... these PCB bullies will treat you like the **** of their toes whenever they get a chance

    What you say is true, but at the same time he has performed well for Pak too.

    10,000 + test runs, 34 centuries, + his efforts in the slips, won his team many test matches.

    At least he is not like Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal who have egos without even achieving anything.

    YK is not even in the same league.


    I heard a story of AB (Bachhan). For a shooting at Chennai, he was in his full costume & make - up; just when there was a power outage. Studio people couldnít arrange generator instantly and AB was sweating. His co actors started to complain and asked for canceling the schedule. Anupam Kher (whoís telling the story later at Stardust) went to AB (who was reading something), and asked him to raise voice so that either they cancel the schedule or fix the issue quickly. AB politely asked him to relax & have patience, because this is out of control for the studio/organizer. If anyone makes their life difficult, thingsíll get only worse.

    Coming to this topic, what I have read from OP, I donít think itís an issue of make shift arrangement - YK has hundreds of places in Lahore to stay for a night. I am sure most of his long term team mates are Lahore based and they are not in tours now. The issue is how you treat your celebrity - some of the top NCA people are YKs seniors; I do think if Mushi or Mudassar briefed YK regarding the inconvenience in person, things would have been different.

    Here my point is, I am sure no one here has bothered or cared for that YK is invited and he needs an accommodation. How much does it cost for a 5 Star accommodation for one night, may be $200 max - how difficult was it for PCB (someone from) to give him a prior call and inform that, there is a makeshift arrangement - YK can either stay at a hotel (@ PCBís expense), or they can accommodate him to a Sr. officials place instead of a surprise ? I am sure, it wonít have ended like this.

    But yes, his reaction reflects his personality & education; he could have responded in a better manner. No way, he should have missed the course for sure. I am not sure if I have read every bit of the story, but based on OP, one canít blame YK alone.

    One truth is, PCB doesnít treat itís players accordingly, therefore the relationship is often bitter - both side is waiting to catch other off guard. I give an example - 2014 PAK Cup (equivalent) was arranged at Multan (?), and that was last audition before WC team selection. Couple of games were rescheduled because players couldnít come for a railway delay (or something like that).

    Bottom line is, some of PAKís national players for such an important tournament were travelling by train, when the host city has an international airport and PCB spends lavishly for itís office bearers. Now, if some of those players end up as PAK great, 10 years later donít get surprised for a counter reaction.

    I try to see events from both ends - YK isnít saint for sure, but I feel most people are shooting him at first sight for his past reputation.

    Doesn't apply here. Gavaskar showed his gratitude because he was treated well. I've heard of Pak players being magnanimous too. I think Younis went public because his complaints probably went to deaf years.

    To be really frank but these things cant be good over all for Pakistan cricket. Somethings need to probably be sorted out behind closed doors. I don't think he has achieved much with this video to be honest. He might be called back with better reception and arrangements in the future but does that fix the problem?

    Why should he get special treatment just cause he's a former cricket "star"? This is a coaching program, it's up to him if he want's to join it to advance his career in coaching. He should've arrange his own accommodation, staying at a board officials room rent free is a privilege he should be grateful for. I'm pretty sure he's a millionaire so booking his own 5 star hotel room shouldn't be a big deal for him.

    Younus Khan has always had an attitude/ego issue and it's better if he stays away from the national cricket scene.

    YK has always had a big ego as seen here which is why I was never in favour of him being a captain in any format for Pakistan. Nevertheless, PCB has once again managed to get bad rep because of silly things like this. Adequate preperation should have been made no matter who the guest was.

    YK has always come across as a drama queen. Always feeling entitled to everything and then playing victim when small matters like those could easily be sorted with some professionalism. Yes he is a Pakistani legend but his behavior is damaging his reputation.
