“People always speculated that I had a role in deciding who plays and who doesn’t. I am not in a position, at the moment, to criticize anyone. Shoaib Malik is the fittest athlete in Pakistan cricket at the moment while Azam Khan has a lot of talent.”

He even mentioned that he has nothing to do with the team selection either, which sounds a bit shocking. Waqar Younis has joined the Pakistan Cricket Board since 2006, where he contributed his skills in different roles and taught young players like Shaheen Afridi and others.

Waqar mentioned, “Talent comes from the first-class and domestic cricket. We were the ones who mentored Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain, and Naseem Shah over the past two years.”

And not once, but twice he was appointed as the head coach of the national team. There’s no denying, that under Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis Pakistan team had suffered a lot. They took some decisions, which created a wrong impact on the pitch and they were part of the board for not involving the skipper in the selection too.

Under their supervision, Sarfaraz Ahmed got sacked by them who led the national team to the champions trophy and made the nation proud.

Not only that who kept the T20 record held too, but these two coaches didn’t see that and took the wrong decision.
