Rizwan thanks Misbah, Waqar for serving Pakistan with ‘sincerity’


Karachi: Wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan has thanked Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis for serving the Pakistan cricket team.

The duo resigned from their roles last week just after the announcement of Green Shirts’ squad for the T20 World Cup. Rizwan wishes prayers for the duo as they move on to the next chapter of their lives.

“As you move on to the next chapter of your lives, lots of prayers for Misbah and Waqar bhai,” he tweeted.

“Thank you for serving Pakistan cricket team. You two will be remembered for your sincerity, support, guidance and hard work,” he added.

It must be noted that former Test cricketers Abdul Razzaq and Saqlain Mushtaq are serving as interim coaches of the national team for home ODIs and T20Is against New Zealand.

On the other hand, Australia’s Matthew Hayden and South Africa’s Vernon Philander will join as consultant coaches for the T20 World Cup.
