Waqar Younas dispute stories with the Pakistani players are not new. Many of the cricketers are not happy with his behavior. Former cricketer Arshad Khan has also revealed that.
According to details, Waqar kept Mohammad Hafeez out of the team, when he knew that he could get fit in time for the remainder of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015.
According to the report of Express Tribune “The prime reason Hafeez was sent back was that Waqar didn’t take kindly to questions over his early morning training practice.”
Waqar Younis did not field Sarfaraz Ahmed in the first four games of the world cup and he also thrown Younis Khan out of the quarter final. Both decisions were highly criticized.
One of the team member said, “he wanted to stamp his authority on the players and also don’t want to listen whatever the senior players in the team are saying that’s the reason that creates a bad atmosphere in the dressing room.”
Waqar had clashes with Shahid Afridi in 2011 who was the captain then, which led to his removal as the Pakistan coach but he didn’t get a lesson. At first we thought Waqar may have learnt from his past mistakes, but we were proven wrong In fact he is now showing the same colors of 2011.
It is also being reported that Waqar who wanted Azhar Ali to be the one-day captain despite better choices available so that he can implement his own plans without interference.
Another player told, “Waqar has set his eyes on building a team around his favorite boys who agree to his each and every word. Despite mistakes and poor performances, he praised Nasir, Umar and few others. Pakistan Cricket Board needs to take this issue up with him when back from Australia.
