Srinagar, Sep 16: Pakistan batting legend and batting coach on recent England tour Younis Khan has claimed that England wicketkeeper batsman Jos Buttler spent time with him during England to learn batting techniques from Khan.
Speaking to a Pakistan local news channel, Younis Khan revealed that Buttler came to him to conduct a 15 minutes session with him and his teammates.
“‘Younis Bhai, I want to talk to you, and can you come with us and conduct 15 minutes session’?” Buttler asked Khan.
Khan said he replied: “Yeah, why not. Will do a session soon.”
Adding on, Khan said after winning the first Test and performing up to the mark, still Buttler came to him and ask for some of his time.
“He once again came to me after they won the first Test and he performed really well. I looked at him and ask “What else do you want now after such an outstanding performance but he said ‘Younis Bhai I want to learn a few things from you related to sweep shot and technique’,” Khan was quoted saying.
Buttler scored match-winning 75 runs against Pakistan in the first Test to push England to victory by three wickets. He along with Chris Woakes scored 139 runs together. The rest of the two Tests ended in a draw due to bad weather and Pakistan lost the Test series 1-0. Pakistan leveled T20I series 1-1.
