The former Pakistani player, Younis Khan has narrated memory of the Pakistan vs India ODI match in 2000 in Sharjah. Younis now holds the big post in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as he is the batting consultant of the national team until the T20 World Cup 2022. The team batting-order has been improving slightly under his training.
Reviving the past, he uttered that he was scolded by Moin Khan, who holds a massive place in Pakistan’s domestic cricket. The matches between India and Pakistan hold a huge fan base who watch the game intensely. There is no room for space for errors from either of the end as both teams struggle to win being the arch-rivals.
Younis reveals that he lost his wicket on a duck and had to go back to the pavilion which led to disappointment from the skipper’s end. The men in green played then under the commandment of Moin, a wicketkeeping batter. He added gratefully that despite being scolded during his bad phase, Moin has played a crucial part in polishing his cricketing skills.
Moin Khan scolded me, reveals Younis Khan
“I remember I started my international cricket under Moin Khan. He has scolded me as well. I got out in a match against India for a duck and Moin bhai was at the other end and he wasn’t happy at all. But, thanks to him, I learned from my mistakes and he has had a big role to play in my success in international cricket.”
Undoubtedly, Younis is one of the finest world-class batsmen. On the ICC list of most Test runs, the Pakistani player ranks 13 with 10009 runs in 118 fixtures. Along with it, he is the only Pakistani to surpass 10,000 test runs. He gathers 7,249 ODI runs in 265 innings. The PCB will be keen to search for a talent like him, however, is considerable to prepare alike talent under his coaching.
