Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar believes players like Mohammad Yousuf, Mohammad Wasim, Saeed Anwar and Younis Khan are all capable of being brilliant coaches.

However, Akhtar noted that they will be best suited to coaching at a lower level.

Akhtar’s comments come after there has been a lot of speculation about Mickey Arthur’s future as his contract as Pakistan’s head coach expired after the World Cup.

Reports indicate that he will be sacked, but the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will conduct a comprehensive review before making a decision.

“We have Mohammad Yousuf, Mohammad Wasim and Saeed Anwar who have played modern day cricket. Players like Younis Khan are there. He should be allowed to coach at a lower level. Yousuf should also coach at a lower level,” Akhtar was quoted as saying by cricketpakistan.com.pk.
