ISLAMABAD – Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf has been tipped to be Pakistan team’s next batting coach ahead of 45-day Australian tour.

Yousuf will replace Zimbabwean Grant Flower. The agreement would be formally signed between Mohammad Yousuf and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) management soon, according to Geo News.

Mohammad Yousuf was rejected as head coach by Afghan cricket board. Lal Chand Rajput of India has been selected to coach Afghan team.
