Waqar Younis apologies to nation over flop show in WT20
LAHORE: Head coach of Pakistan Cricket team Waqar Younis on Tuesday apologized to nation over team’s poor performance in ongoing mega event International Cricket Council (ICC) World Twenty20.
Talking to newsmen in Lahore, Waqar Younis said that change can only be brought by improving system, not by suspending few people.
He said the authorities need to first identify the mistakes and then provide the solution.
“I have submitted my report to Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) fact finding committee, can’t talk about the report in public because I want to solve in house problems internally”, he added.
He said that cosmetic changes won’t help or save PCB as it need to face some facts and make some deep changes and corrections.
“Better domestic cricket can lead to the stunning performance at international level”, he expressed.
Head coach said leveling allegations against one person is injustice. He stated he has always worked honestly and will continue to do so.
“We need to separate politics from game”, he requested.
Earlier, Waqar Younis lashed out at T20 captain Shahid Afridi by terming his behavior as frivolous during the tournament.
The coach said Afridi was lacking judgmental power while the selection committee had also shown irresponsible attitude while picking up the players.
Pakistan finished their campaign with three defeats from four outings, including a loss at the hands of arch foes India in Kolkata.
