Waqar Younis Responds to Rumors of His Return as Pakistan’s Bowling Coach

Former Pakistani pacer, Waqar Younis, has responded to the speculations about his appointment as the bowling coach for the Pakistan cricket team.

Taking to his Twitter account, Waqar wrote that he has not approached the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) for the said position and has no plans to do so.

The debate started when a cricket fan stated that the PCB management has contacted Waqar Younis for the bowling coach role, calling it ‘the most terrible news.’

The tweet did not sit well with the former captain, who responded that it makes no difference that PCB contacted him, but the words he chose were not suitable.

It is pertinent to mention here that the coaching department and selection committee for the national team have become a headache for PCB management.

Earlier, it was reported that the management contacted former Pakistani cricketers, Shoaib Akhtar and Kamran Akmal to check their availability for the Chief Selector position.

The newly appointed PCB management committee has also failed to convince former Zimbabwe captain, Andy Flower, for the role of the national team’s head coach.

The management committee has been in talks with Mickey Arthur, Andy Flower, and Tom Moody since taking charge, but has received no positive response.
