    Waqar Younis appointed coach of Pakistan (and for 21 months!!!)

    Waqar Younis has been appointed as pakistan’s latest cricket coach. Why latest? Because he became the fourth person in the last three years to assume the mantle, clearly showing the lack of direction within the Pakistani ranks.

    Younis has replaced Intikhab Alam as the coach. No problems with that, given that Alam looked to be going nowhere with his strategy and was more of a father-figure to the side, than a shrewd tactician or master motivator. Else, the team wouldn’t have gone down so tamely in australia; 9-0.

    The funny bit is that the joke by the name of the Waqar Younis contract runs till the end of December 2011. That is a good 21 month long sign-up! In a country where coaches have fell by the wayside after every bad series or two, the 21- month long contract is almost eternity.

    How many months does Waqar last is a question that would be on everyone’s l i p s, but when you have countrymen like Javed Miandad who were very candid in saying that Younis is the wrong choice as the coach of the side! Not that Miandad has too many fond memories of any foreign coach either, which makes it possible that he was gunning for the position himself!

    On the NZ tour Pakistan Waqar was very realistic about their problems and I reckon he could potentially be just what they need. Hope he lasts the 21.

    Who wrote that post for you ??? Just kidding.

    There were so many errors in your earlier posts that I wondered if it was because you were too young or what? Then you come and post this. I presume you were just careless before.

    waqar is the best option they have right now, atleast he is a intelligent cricketer unlike the villagers we had before running the team.

    I am counting on Waqar. Thats all i can say ATM.

    Hope Mohsin and Waqar have a good understanding to do proper selection on merit and not bring in provincial bias or nepotism.

    Yep, that's him. Wasn't spamming until about this post, his first few ones had nothing in it.
