Live Cricket Streaming News - Waqar decides to resign as Pakistan Coach

Live Cricket Streaming

Waqar Younis was very well known for his quick bowling, especially the reverse swinging yorkers. We still can't forget his swinging yorker to Brian Lara which was completely unplayable and good enough to disturb the furniture. Waqar Younis has resigned as Pakistan coach due to some personal reasons. Pakistan's tour to Zimbabwe will be his last assignment with the team as a coach.

He took over the role of Pakistan's coach in March 2010. He saw a lot of crests and troughs in his tenure which includes the following;-

  • Pakistan made it to the semis of T20 World cup in West Indies
  • Spot fixing saga when Pakistan visited England
  • Pakistan bravely managed to draw the test series with South Africa
  • Pakistan won their first ever test series since 2006-07 by beating New Zealand 
  • Pakistan brought a full stop to the 34 matches winning streak of Australia and also reached semis of ICC World cup 2011
  • Pakistan defeated West India in ODI series

Overall Waqar observed a very mixed kind of success in his tenure. He will serve as a coach for his last assignment when Pakistan plays 3 ODIs, 2 T20s and 1 Test match in Zimbabwe.
