Former Pakistani skipper and one of the all-time fast bowling greats, Waqar Younis is all set to become the new bowling coach of Pakistan cricket team after Mohammad Akram pulled out of the race right before his scheduled interview with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) panel.

Pakistani pacer Junaid Khan has made an interesting revelation regarding the former head coach as he said that Waqar was quite a brilliant mentor for the bowlers during his previous tenure, but he was not much liked by the batsmen.
“If you were to ask Pakistani bowlers about having Waqar Younis as a bowling coach then you will definitely find a lot of excitement and favorable opinions on this matter. The reason for that is during his previous tenure, he helped the bowlers a lot and gave them very good advice as well for bowling in Tests and so on as he was a legendary bowler himself. But, let me also say that there are some batsmen and others who are not in his favor as he failed to inspire them,” said Junaid.
