Waqar at odds with PCB officials

Written by Kashif Aziz on April 8th, 2006   (286 views)

Some officials of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and former Test captain Waqar Younis appear to be headed on a collision course.

The reason for the conflict has arisen because while some of the Board officials, including Director Cricket Operations, Saleem Altaf believe that Waqar, in his role as bowling coach, should be posted at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) instead of travelling with the team, the former Test pacer has other ideas.

Waqar appeared to be deeply involved in his bowling coach role in Sri Lanka spending considerable time working on the players and the efforts that he put in showed with the bowlers throughout the tour sharply reducing the number of wides and no-balls in the one-dayers and Tests, a problem that has persisted for sometime now with them.

The former captain also made it a point not to interfere with the duties of the coach Bob Woolmer and captain Inzamam-ul-Haq and mostly remained in the company of vice-captain Younis Khan and leg-spinner Danish Kaneria.

Sources say that the future of Waqar depends a lot on what feedback the captain gives about him to the Board and also what sort of agreement the former captain can reach with the Board over his posting at the NCA.
