Waqar criticises PCB in World T20 report
Pakistan coach Waqar Younis has written a damning report to the Pakistan Cricket Board following the team's exit from the World T20 at the Super 10 stage.
Waqar and his team have faced severe criticism from former players and the cricket mad country's fans following a dismal campaign in which they only beat Bangladesh but lost to rivals India, Australia and New Zealand.
The fast-bowling legend also criticised the board for not letting him have a bigger say in team selection.
Waqar's report, according to Cricinfo, stated: "My tenure has had mixed results with some good ones and others not so.
"My aim for this report is not to shift the blame to any personal individual but to identify where things did not go right, where we could have improved, hindrances and recommendations which I hope are implemented for the betterment of Pakistan and its future.
"I had made a lot of recommendations after the 2015 World Cup, including sending some boys back to first-class cricket for at least a season so they can regain their hunger for the game and rethink their approach and attitude to play for Pakistan but no recommendation was implemented.
"I had also recommended a certain selector who I believed had a vision for modernised cricket and changes in the domestic set-up but it was all overlooked.
"Haroon Rasheed was made chief selector after the World Cup and since then there have been so many changes on every tour, at times I feel they were stop-gap decisions, but to develop a team, you need to believe in your decisions and give them time."
