Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Mr. Najam Sethi has congratulated former Pakistan captain Waqar Younis on his induction in the International Cricket Council’s Hall of Fame as its first 2013-14 nominee.
Waqar will join the exclusive club during the first Twenty20 International between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai, while two days later former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist will receive a similar honour during the third Ashes Test match at Perth.
“I am delighted at Waqar Younis’ induction into the ICC’s Hall of Fame, and congratulate him on joining this most exclusive of clubs.
“This is a signal honour for any cricketer, with Waqar being only the 70th to have been bestowed it thus far. The PCB rejoices at Waqar’s recognition and honour,” said Najam Sethi.
