Yousuf appointed batting coach for High Performance Centre in Lahore

KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday appointed former skipper Mohammad Yousuf as the batting coach of its National High Performance Centre (NHPC) in Lahore. Yousuf, who has scored 7,530 Test and 9,720 ODI runs in a career spanning from 1998 to 2010, will head the list of coaches, which already boasts of Mushtaq Ahmed as the spin bowling consultant.
“My ambitions in making a career in coaching is an open secret but it was all about the timing and a proper roadmap for our future cricket in which I could contribute effectively,” Yousuf said in a statement issued by the PCB.
“I believe this is the right time for me to start my second innings as I can sense the intent and optimism in the approach.
“I am delighted to have been offered this opportunity and I firmly believe I can help young cricketers by transferring my knowledge and experience, which I have acquired after being part of one of the brightest and formidable eras of Pakistan cricket,” he added.
Following changes of first XI head coaches, there has been a reshuffle in the men’s national selection committee.
Razzaq, Basit, Faisal and Shahid Anwar will now join Abdur Rehman and Mohammad Wasim in head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq’s men’s national selection panel.
