Basit Ali reacts to Flower’s ‘knife to the throat’ claims against Khan

Karachi: Pakistan’s former Test cricketer Basit Ali doubted Grant Flower’s caliber for suggesting batting tips to one of the country’s greatest Test batsmen Younis Khan. 

In answer to former Pakistan batting coach’s claims against Khan, Basit said that it is unethical to make such claims regarding a legendary batsman.

“There is a statement that has come out from Grant Flower about Younis Khan. I feel he has given this statement very quickly. I feel he should think which person, which player he is talking about, who has scored 10000 runs for Pakistan,” said Basit on his Youtube channel.

“Pakistan cricket is not that bad that coaches like Grant Flower give suggestions to Younis Khan. It was his [Younis] greatness that he used to listen to him [Flower] and even used to credit him in press conferences,” he added.

The cricketer-turned-analyst urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to take action against their former employee. “Statements like this are not good for our nation’s cricket and PCB should take action. Because Younis Khan is one of our greatest cricketers and I felt very sad,” he concluded.

It must be noted here that Flower claimed that Khan held a knife to his throat after he tried to share some batting tips with him during the Pakistan tour to Australia in 2016.
