    [REPORT] Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf being considered for Under-19 and coaching roles

    KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is planning to hire some former players as coaches and managers of the national age-group teams, taking inspiration from the success that India has achieved with Rahul Dravid in a similar role.

    There is speculation here that former captain Younis Khan is being considered for the role of Pakistan's under-19 coach and manager.

    Younis, who retired last year after becoming Pakistan's highest Test run-getter and the first to reach 10,000 runs in the format, has expressed interest in coaching junior players if the board gave him "full freedom" to implement his programme.

    "Australia utilised the services of their top players like Rodney Marsh, Allan Border and Ricky Pointing while India has also given Dravid the responsibility of manning their under-19 players and it has produced good results," PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani said.

    Dravid has been the coach of the Indian under-19 and A teams and has drawn a lot of credit for shaping up the youngsters. Under his tutelage, the under-19 team won the ICC World Cup last year.

    In Australia, Border has served as a selector and Ponting is currently part of the national team's coaching staff.

    The PCB, on the other hand, has constantly changed the coaches and managers of the under-19 squad, something that has been blamed for its below-par performances. It has also avoided appointing high-profile former players as coaches/managers of the youth teams.

    Mani, while speaking to the the media in Lahore, said that the board has finally decided to utilise the services of its former senior players to work with the youth.

    "We also need to have classes for our players as they go on to become ambassadors for the country. They will be given grooming and education at the National Cricket Academy," Mani said.

    "We should have attached our own coaches with foreign coaches just like India did so that they could have also learnt a lot more."

    The PCB is also considering appointing former Test captain Mohammad Yousuf as the batting coach at its National Cricket Academy in Lahore.

    Good initiative. I was a big fan of Yousuf and his style of play until I heard his analysis on tv. Doesn't come across as a smart cookie. Younis would be perfect for the role. He commands respect and carries himself well.

    What has this world come to, surely Younis is too inexperienced for coaching U19 level, you need a proper coach like Intikhab or Mushtaq Mohammad.

    Good idea. Lots of coaches spoke of how thorough YK was in his preparations and pre-match routines. He has a Level 2 coaching qualification so it's not like he hasn't any training.

    It's my opinion. He did a mistake, and everyone does. He's been punished. And, yes, he shouldn't be allowed to represent the country. But, you can utilise his services.

    Moreover, Amir is still being the golden boy, despite fixing.


    Regarding Waqar, I think he lives in Aus. He won't stay in Pak unless it's paid well. He can be paid well for being the coach of a national team, but not for being a u 19 coach.

    That's the reason I didn't include Azhar or Waqar as they won't reside in Pak for low salaries.

    Wasim is a commentator and also in some committee. So he wouldn't be available either.

    Asif could be really a good choice as bowling coach for our bowlers whom lack new ball bowling skills. He could be deployed in NCA under scrutiny if possible else in tour preparations+domestic coach could be the way to go. Itís like we need him not sure about vise versa. I think abbas played in the same team as asif before debut there was improvement in him in the past. He recognised issues related with Abbas well before england series and was telling on a tv show. And we have a coach who is payed as British resident and there is no improvement in bowling since he took over except that some excellent debuts on the basis of domestic and psl performances like Hassan abbas etc. We always feel helpless when a wicket is needed and part of it coachís planning goes on a holiday on the same day

    Dravid has managed to make under 19 coaching glamorous.

    Dravid was always a gentleman in his playing days on and off the field. Yousuf and younis behaved more like prima donas. Granted they have much to offer technically to these youngsters but certainly not a good role model for them.

    Younis is a big no.

    He'll only product his type of players, who are sitting ducks against pacers and hopping, struggling to face fast bowlers.


    MoYO yes, a very good choice! Keep Younis out!

    MoYo also has a negative side to him where he'll instill the 'first of all I want to thank...' mentality in the players.

    Good thought, but i would keep shoaib, asif and inzi out of the setup. Inzi as we have all seen. Asif could have been but is past history and travel ban issues effectively take him out. Shoaib hmm, would be interesting but the character isn't an ideal candidate for grooming young kids. The domestic setup needs someone who can undwrstand the technical deficit that our raw talents faces. Younis and mo yo are extremely competent. Wasim/Waqar would be gold for these young buds at the NCA.

    Younis was more than competent against pace at his peak. You cannot extrapolate what happened at the end of his career when he was well past 40 years of age.

    Even now he'd walk into this mediocre batting lineup.

    Mr genius you don't average 50 plus by bashing spinners all your career. you don't score double hundred in England by basing spinners. Mr genius he is going to be teaching them about batting not that he will be batting in their place. Plus i read recently he has a qualification. With that stupid logic of your means people who haven't even played international are awful coaches. Lets ask Shan that. Your batting has nothing to do with your coaching.

    Neither strike me as having the right temperament to be coaches for young players.
    Younus is too moody and emotional, Yousuf is too jaded and bitter. Both are great bats, but not sure if they should be coaching.

    50 average in Australia, 50 average in England, 43 average in NZ. Only place he did poorly is SA, with an average of 32 which is still respectable.

    I wouldn't mind Asif use as a bowling coach (or consultant) if he could do a good job. He made a mistake, and better he teach others how to maximise their skill and reaching their potential. Would redeem him in the eyes of many people, providing a service so that others can make their cricketing dreams come true. And I don't think he'd likely engage in fixing as a coach, all are unlikely to make the same mistake, and those who bribe cricketers to fix are unlikely to want to use them again as they're under watch now, better use those who haven't been caught or completely new people.

    Representing as a cricketer again is more selfish really, you get the glory, yet you've already betrayed the country before selling out for money. Behind the scenes involvement for the good of Pakistan, I don't mind.

    I don't think any of the trio should have really been allowed to play international cricket again. But to support Pakistan cricket as an advisory role I can accept.

    I hope it is not true. Even though both are brilliant players, what little I have seen them in media, they look like terrible role models for young players. For training these kids, it is not only important to be a good player, it is also important to be a good role model overall. Rahul Dravid struck that right balance for India. I don't know who in Pakistan is like that, but certainly not these two.
