LAHORE: Former captain and fast bowler Waqar Younis has been named as the new head coach by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the board announced on Tuesday.
The appointment of Younis, who has been given a two-year contract, comes merely days after Sethi’s interview to a local newspaper in which he hinted that a deal between the two parties was all but done.
Waqar, who has coached Pakistan in 2010 and 2011, before resigning for ‘personal’ reasons during Ijaz Butt’s tenure at the helm of the cricket board, had again expressed his willingness for the post after his previous application was rejected in early February by a PCB coach-finding committee.
Moin Khan was named the chief selector-cum-team manager by Najam Sethi-led-Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), following which Waqar had emerged as the strongest contender for the post of head coach.
