After Younis Khan’s resignation as batting coach of the Pakistan side, few days back, it has now been learned that his relationship with the players in the team was far from ideal.

According to sources, Younis was involved in a heated exchange with pacer Hasan Ali after the Twenty20 International (T20I) match against South Africa in Centurion.

Younis had approached Hasan over a matter outside his domain, in the dressing room after the match, but the latter hit back with a strong response which left the former batting coach unhappy. Younis also remained quiet and reserved during the rest of the tour, after the incident.

PCB declined to comment on the matter, when contacted, while Younis was also unavailable to shed some light on the incident.

PCB and Younis, on June 22, mutually agreed to part ways. A dental treatment and strained relationship between Younis Khan and the top PCB officials was the reason behind the former’s resignation as the batting coach of the Men in Green.

Younis was also accused of leaking team lineups to his friends in media before matches.

Younis was appointed last year in November on a two-year contract until the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022.
