However, according to the statement release by PCB this morning, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Younis Khan, mutually agreed to path ways.

CEO of PCB, Wasim Khan, stated that the decision was made by Younis and the PCB after a several meetings.

Mr Wasim commented, “It is sad to lose an expert of the stature and experience of Younis Khan. Following a series of discussions, we both have reluctantly but mutually and amicably agreed that it was time to move in different directions.”  

Aftermath: The national team is to be featured in five T20Is and two Tests in the West Indies tour will be from July 21 to August 24. While, the team will tour the United Kingdom from June 25 to July 20 for three ODIs and three T20Is. The decision of replacement for the West Indies tour will be made in due course. However, the national cricket team will travel to the United Kingdom without a batting coach.
