Waqar Younis gets academy pace bowling role

October 15, 2008 at 12:07 pm 3 comments

Pakistan fast bowling legend Waqar Younis has been given the role of coaching England’s academy side on the tour to India. The former Pakistani fast bowler is famous for his lightning fast deliveries and his ability to generate reverse swing. His experience in the subcontinent is also a large part in the decision to appoint Younis. He is now likely to join Mushtaq Ahmed who has been offered the chance to coach the spinners. 

“They asked me if I could accompany the academy team on tour and work with the young bowlers. They felt that with my experience of subcontinent pitches and having played in India, I would be able to play a part in developing them.”
– A Delighted Waqar Younis

Waqar Younis will be working with Tim Bresnan, Mark Davies, Robbie Joseph, Amjad Khan, Sajid Mahmood and Liam Plunkett, over the winter. It is likely that Younis will not be offered a role with the senior team because that role is currently being occupied by Ottis Gibson.
