Waqar angry at confidential report leak

Pakistan’s head coach Waqar Younis blasted the officials of Pakistan Cricket Board for leaking his confidential report on team’s lackluster performance in the World Twenty20.

Some major parts of Waqar’s confidential report was floated on various news channels on Wednesday and part of the newspaper sites on Wednesday in which major part of the blame was put on Twenty20 skipper Shahid Afridi.

Waqar went to the PCB headquarters and met some of the officials. He raised the issue and showed his anger over the leak of the report.

Waqar’s report after the 2015 World Cup (50 overs) was also leaked in March last year.

Sources said Waqar has put major blamed of the failure on Twenty20 skipper Shahid Afridi, saying that he failed to control the team and was misfit as skipper, making blunders in decision making.

Waqar has also blamed opener Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal for not only their lack of performances but also for their “unacceptable”. Like his 2015 World Cup report, Waqar has once again suggested that the two unyielding players should be kept away from the team for some time.


Waqar has also taken a swipe at the selection committee, saying that he demanded for now-clear spot-fixing convict opener Salman Butt for the Asia Cup and World Twenty20.

“Selection committee did not give me what I wanted,” wrote Waqar. “Instead of a hungry and in-form Salman Butt they selected Khurram Manzoor for which I was not convinced.

Waqar also showed anger at the previous selection committee headed by Moin Khan, saying that the team for the World Cup 2015 was discussed and agreed upon but Moin changed the team after he left the meeting.

Moin refused to comment on Waqar’s report, saying he has the morality to keep silence.
