Waqar: Two heads not good for Pakistan


Former national coach Waqar Younis says Pakistan cricket is being driven in two different directions by board chairman Shaharyar Khan and committee chairman Najam Sethi.

Pakistan crashed out of the World T20 in the group stages which has led Waqar to resign as coach and Shahid Afridi to quit the captaincy.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has been through a lot already and there have always been accusations of favouritism and things not being done right and Waqar said they did not support him as the coach.

Speaking about about his time in charge, Waqar told Cricinfo in an interview: "The biggest issue was having two heads of a family, [it] did not help the cause.  

"Not only for the coach but cricket overall also suffered because, inside the PCB, there are two heads and two different directions. That needs to be looked into. That is very important.

"I have said previously that people in a cricket board should be coming towards the team, towards the coaching staff.

"They should be coming towards us, to improve things, because they are for the cricket team, for the game. The cricket team is not for them."
