Younis Khan has been appointed as the coach of Pakistan’s Under-19 side. PCB chairman Ehsan Mani cited the example of Dravid who has done an outstanding job with young Indian cricketers. Younis will also manage the responsibility as the chief of the national junior selection committee.

“A decision has been taken in this regard within the PCB but the announcement will be made soon after completing a few formalities,” the source said.

“Younis will be given full powers as head coach and also chief selector of the national junior selection committee and he will be assisted by another former Test player, Nadeem Khan who is in line to be appointed as manager,” the source said.

“In the past there has been a tendency to change coaches and managers of the junior team after one or two series and this has hurt the progress and development of the junior players,” the source said.
