Inzamam urges PCB to appoint Waqar Younis as Pak coach for second time
Former Pakistani captain Inzamam ul-Haq has urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to give another chance to fast bowling great Waqar Younis as the country's national cricket coach.
Pakistan is looking for a permanent coach after former Australian batsman Dav Whatmore's two-year tenure ended in February as the PCB did not extend the tenure of former Test wicketkeeper Moin Khan, who was appointed interim coach, due to a poor showing at the World Twenty20 last month.
According to Sport24, Waqar, who served as coach in 2010 and 2011, is the favourite to take over and Inzamam said that his former teammate is the best choice for the job as he had proved his credentials in the past and is familiar with the players and the team culture.
Inzamam, who played 120 Tests and 378 ODIs during an illustrious career, also called for a change in Pakistan's attitude of changing captains and coaches after a defeat, saying that the team needs to correct the wrongs and change is not the solution.
Inzamam backed Test and ODI captain Misbah-ul Haq to lead their 2015 World Cup campaign in Australia and New Zealand as he feels there is not enough time to groom a new captain.
