Former Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis on Friday supported the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) decision to appoint Inzamamul Haq as chief selector for the national team.
In a series of tweets, the 44-year-old praised PCB for implementing his suggestions which he gave post 2015 World Cup.
Hearing Inzamam coming as chief selector. V good news. Glad PCB now listening to my 2015 recommendations. #BetterLateThanNever— Waqar Younis (@waqyounis99) April 15, 2016
PCB to appoint national team coach in May
Former chief selector Haroon Rasheed was sacked on April 4 after PCB chairman accepted the recommendation of a special committee with regards to a change in the selection committee. Rasheed also faced criticism in Waqar Younis’ post-World T20 report.
However, the former head coach still lamented the board’s other decision to employ an interim coach for the national side.
Bad decision to consider interim coach. Still have plenty of time b4 Eng Tour. Need vision for future planning #PlanAhead— Waqar Younis (@waqyounis99) April 15, 2016
We may hire interim coach, says Shaharyar
Waqar stepped down from his post as the head coach on April 4, after a meeting with the PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan.
“I am resigning as the head coach of Pakistan cricket team,” Waqar had said while addressing the media outside PCB headquarters. “I am stepping away with a heavy heart. I want to thank everyone with whom I have worked honestly for the last 19 months. I tried my best to help all the players become better versions of themselves.”
Earlier, the name of Test cricketer Iqbal Qasim also surfaced in news for the post of chief selector.
