Waqar Younis as Bowling Coach

it's a nice thing Waqar is one of a long line of Pakistanis (starting with Sarfraz Nawaz) who have been effective at using the art of reverse swing. In partnership with Wasim Akram, Younis spearheaded the Pakistan bowling attack in the early to mid 90's. Following their 1992 series versus England, the English media, were suspicious of the then 'mysterious' art of reverse swing. This led to cries of foul play and allegations of "ball-tampering" from some quarters. Waqar Younis's bowling against South Africa in Sheikhupura, Pakistan, is remembered for his effective use of the short-pitched delivery. Waqar Younis is oft-cited amongst the finest fast bowlers. Other famous fast bowlers of 1990s include Allan Donald, Glenn McGrath, Courtney Walsh, Wasim Akram and Curtly Ambrose.

Indeed it was great to have Waqar Younis as Pakistan Cricket Team bowling coach. He along wasim akram won pakistan many matches. His experience would have been a boost for pakistan team, Pakistani team improved in bowling department under his coaching. Young bowlers like rana, umar, asif all admitted on air. But sadly, like before, Pakistan management sacked waqar. I guess I am already too late to respond to this topic. Just thought to bring life to this topic, Happy discussions.
