Karachi:

Neither retired nor planning to take up coaching once that happens, but that has not stopped Pakistan's senior batsman Younis Khan from completing a level two coaching course at the National Cricket Academy. Before this course, Younis has also completed a level one coaching course conducted by the PCB.

"I think playing cricket and coaching are two very different things and require different skills. It is not necessary if you are a successful cricketer you can also do coaching easily," he told reporters.

Younis also pointed out that playing and learning cricket were two different things.

"I am today what I am because I played good cricket but I always felt that learning about the sport is also very important and helps you grow as a player," he said.

Younis said he was keen on attending coaching courses as it helped him remain updated about changes in cricket laws and learn man management.

"But I want to make it clear I have no intentions of becoming a coach after retiring from the game," he stated. Younis, who stepped down as captain in November 2009 after leading Pakistan to the Twenty20 World Cup title in England that same year, said he gained a lot after completing a coaching course in 2009.
