Former captain Younis Khan resigned as Pakistan’s batting coach on Tuesday, a surprise decision that the cricket board said was reached “reluctantly but amicably” despite no reasons being given.

The Pakistan team is due to start a tour of the UK from June 25 to July 20 for three ODIs and three T20Is. The team will next go to the West Indies from July 21 to August 24 to feature in five T20Is and two Tests.

“The Pakistan men’s national cricket team will travel to the United Kingdom without batting coach, while the decision to replace Younis Khan for the West Indies tour will be made in due course,” the Pakistan Cricket Board said in statement two days before the team’s departure.

Following the announcement, rumours circulated that Younis had decided to resign because he was unhappy with his role and wanted more say in hiring decisions. 
He was dissatisfied with the way the national team was being prepared for the future, according to source.
