The 57-year-old advised the former batsman to understand demands of his new role and adjust himself accordingly
Former cricketer Ramiz Raja has warned the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) against Younis Khan’s mood swings and temperament issues, after the latter was appointed batting coach of the national team for their tour to England.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, the famous commentator advised Younis to understand demands of his new role and adjust himself accordingly.
“Since Younis is a no-nonsense kind of a character, so he can also have temperament issues at times. He often has mood swings and there is always a danger of him getting upset and leaving his job,” said Raja.
“Coaching is all about man-management skills and you need to have patience. If you don’t control your temperament, then you can’t become a successful coach. Younis can only have control over things to a certain extent, but even if he doesn’t get all the things he wants, he will need to adjust in this new role,” he added.
The 57-year-old believes Khan’s presence in the coaching setup will be a great opportunity for youngsters to learn and improve in different aspects of the game.
“Younis will create a cricketing environment for youngsters. Batsmen will learn the art of playing spin and how to run quick between the wickets. He can also help players in the fielding department as well. Overall, it is a great chance for players to learn as much as they can,” he concluded.
Pakistan is scheduled to take on England in three Tests and three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), which will be played in August-September.
