Younis Khan is now accompanying the Pakistan Cricket team in England as they gear up for the Test series that is scheduled to kick off on August 5 at Manchester.
Latif recalled that Younis had acknowledged Azharuddin (not Flower) after smashing a double century at the Oval in 2016.
Archer has come up the ranks since he made his debut a year ago.
Ali, on his YouTube channel, lauded Younis for his contribution to Pakistan cricket and said that Flower should think twice before dishing out such a statement.
The incident happened during Pakistan's tour of Australia in 2016.
Younis is Pakistan's leading run-scorer in Test cricket with 10,099 runs from 118 matches.
Younis Khan along with the 20-man squad and other support staff left for England on Sunday morning.
Pakistan saved the Mohali Test in 2005, which helped them eventually to draw the 2005 Test series between Pakistan and India.
Mushtaq Ahmed has been appointed as spin bowling coach.
The 42-year-old retired from international cricket in 2017 after playing for Pakistan for 17 long years.
