PCB owes me 4-6 crore: Younis Khan
Younis Khan, Pakistan’s all-time leading run-scorer in Test cricket, has claimed that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) owes him a substantial amount of money.
Having said that, Khan also showed his interest to join forces with them and work towards the betterment of the sport in the country.
He also clarified that he never asked the money from the board as “it has never been an issue”.
“In terms of money, PCB owes me 4-6 crore rupees if you look back. But I have never demanded money, money is never an issue,” Khan said. “Its destiny from Allah, you get what is destined for you so you should never run after money, I never ran after money.”
“I have always been willing to work with PCB. I was one of the few players who retired and left, players rarely do that. I have 17-18 years of services for Pakistan and PCB.
“What happens that we can’t come on board together, I don’t even know. I played cricket so I want to help in the field of cricket. Why we don’t come on board, perhaps PCB doesn’t change or Younis Khan doesn’t change.”
Khan has apparently been at loggerheads with the PCB after he did not get the cost of the Pakistan U-19 crew following his refusal to work with Nationwide Cricket Academy.
The former Pakistan captain got invitation for the second Take a look at between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, however the former batsman duly refused the invitation.
Meanwhile Khan is of the opinion that Pakistan cricket is coming back on track. “Whenever we change things especially in a country like Pakistan we find it awkward. I hope the results of the changes are good. Pakistan team is coming back on track, give Misbah-ul-Haq, PCB & Imran Khan some time & many things will change for the better.”
He was also quite appreciative of how Pakistan handed over the T20 reigns to Babar Azam, “Good decision to have a young captain for T20 format who is also a stay player. He has a chance to take his performances even higher and change Pakistan cricket.”
