Cricket won’t improve until domestic structure is fixed: Waqar
ISLAMABAD—Former Head Coach Waqar Younis feels that Pakistan cricket would not improve unless and until stern steps are taken to fix the domestic cricket.
Waqar, who had resigned as Pakistan’s coach three months before his contract was going to end on June 30, said the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) needs to improve domestic cricket first.
“I will have been pleased if progress was made on my recommendations,” he said while talking to a private news channel.
Waqar, who was appointed in May 2014 for a two-year contract, said the PCB was talking about changes but real changes were not being done.
“There seems to be lot of talk but the PCB is yet to announce formation of cricket committee. PCB has real work to do in trying to get real cricketers into the proposed cricket committee,” he said.
Speaking about the newly appointed head coach Mickey Arthur, Waqar said Mickey’s emphasis should be on discipline and it will benefit the national team.
Arthur was appointed Pakistan’s coach last week, filling the position vacated by Waqar in April..—APP
