Two years ago, a young fan from New Zealand Felix Anderson wanted a little help with his batting. So he wrote a letter to one of his heroes – Younis Khan.
After recalling his favorite Younis innings – the treble against Sri Lanka and the 2016 double against England – Felix asked for advice on how to play the cover drive and the cut shot.
Younis has retired from international cricket since but the letter finally found its way to him. And in response, he made a personal coaching video just for Felix, now 12 years old.
As promised, here is the coaching tip manual on the cover drive and cut shot for the 12 year old Felix from New Zealand who wrote a letter to me. I hope you enjoy this, practice it & improve your game. All the best Felix. Hope to see you playing for your country one day pic.twitter.com/lnzP2yz9gT

A coaching career awaits Younis, as well as a tutorial for his fans on the shot he played arguably better than anyone else: the sweep.
