While it remains unclear whether Younis has accepted the offer, Sethi's interview to a local newspaper has all but confirmed recent rumours that negotiations between the two parties were underway for the position of head coach of the national team.

"I put the matter before our managing committee and they chose the option led by Moin Khan which (Wasim) Akram had listed at number one. Not everyone was happy with the decision, but we let it go because there was no time to constitute a new committee and come up with different choices," Sethi said.
