Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis has slammed T20I captain Shahid Afridi’s ‘non-serious’ attitude during the Asia Cup and World T20 campaigns in his report submitted to PCB’s Fact-Finding committee, reported Express News.

Explaining his side to the Fact-Finding Committee after Pakistan’s dismal performance in the World T20 tournament, Waqar claimed former team manager Moin Khan favoured Umar Akmal. “Moin helped Umar escape practice on a number of occasions,” he said.

“I apologise to the nation for such a poor performance in the mega event but sacking people won’t improve anything. If sacking me improves the state of Pakistan cricket, then do it today, why wait for tomorrow?” said Waqar.
