    Waqar Younis

    I've heard a few rumours about Waqar, but what actually happened to him, and can anyone say whether he will be back again?

    There are no rumours circulating amount Younis that have surfaced as far as I am aware. The latest news concerning him is his naming as part of a five man panel to assist Shoaib Malik with his bowling action.

    Waqar on panel to remedy Shoaib's action

    October 20, 2004

    Waqar Younis has been named as part of a five-man panel that will help work with the Pakistan offspinner, Shoaib Malik, who was reported by the umpires Aleem Dar and Simon Taufel, and the match referee Jeff Crowe, for a suspect bowling action in the final of the recently concluded Paktel Cup.

    Abbas Zaidi, a spokesman for the Pakistan Cricket Board said: "We have formed a five-member committee which will work with Shoaib and submit a report [to the ICC]." Waqar, who was Pakistan's captain when Shoaib made his Test debut in 2001, is joined on the panel by Bob Woolmer, the national team coach; Khizar Hayat, a former international umpire, and Ijaz Faqih and Bruce Yardley, ex-Test players.

    The panel have six weeks in which to work with Shoaib, before reporting their findings to the ICC as stage one of the process for assessing bowlers with potentially flawed actions. Malik himself, who is currently playing in the first Test against Sri Lanka in Faisalabad, will undergo corrective measures on his action after the two-match series is concluded. If his action was reported again, he would have his case brought before the ICC's bowling action review committee.

    Hasn't he retired from all Cricket?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    I didn't think that what i said was that hard to understand but i'll try saying it diferently.

    I have no idea what happened to Waqar Younis and why he isn't still playing.
