AFG vs PAK T20Is: Mohammad Yousuf, the Pakistan men’s team’s interim batting coach, has withdrawn from the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan in Sharjah due to personal reasons. As a result, Abdur Rehman, the interim head coach, has taken up the role of batting coach. Yousuf was named interim head coach on March 13, but that was quickly overturned after Najam Sethi, the PCB chairperson, posted a list of support personnel that differed from the previous group. Pakistan has also rested key players including Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaheen Afridi, with Shadab Khan taking over as captain. Follow AFG vs PAK LIVE updates with InsideSport.IN

The PCB explained that the announcement regarding Yousuf was incorrect and that he will continue to serve as batting coach. Yousuf, however, backed out just hours before the team’s departure for the UAE on Wednesday afternoon. Since Saqlain Mushtaq’s contract expired, Pakistan has been without an official head coach. The PCB created temporary provisions by bringing in coaches from the domestic set-up, and Rehman was elevated to the major role. Umar Gul took over as bowling coach, while Yousuf and Abdul Majeed remained as batting and fielding coaches.
“I understand the coaching staff was named after the squad because it’s a temporary job. Had there been a permanent staff, this question should have been more relevant, but since I have been given an interim job, my role is just to try and win the series,” Rehman said.
“I am doing this job for the last 15 years. It’s not like I will be dictating terms to them. In fact, having them with me gives me confidence. It’s a privilege to work with them; we have to work together and I have to take advantage of their experience,” he stated.
Pakistan: Shadab Khan (c), Abdullah Shafique, Azam Khan, Faheem Ashraf, Iftikhar Ahmed, Ihsanullah, Imad Wasim, Mohammad Haris, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Naseem Shah, Zaman Khan, Tayyab Tahir, Shan Masood, Saim Ayub
