Waqar Younis opens up on his conflict with Amir

Waqar Younis opens up on his conflict with Amir

Waqar Younis, the ex-bowling coach of the Pakistan Cricket Team has opened up on his conflict with Mohammad Amir. He says the fast bowler should have specified what the tortures were.

Notably, the bowler made himself unavailable for the national selection last year following his woes with the board’s management under Misbah ul Haq and Waqar. Amir opted that until the duo has holed over the system, he would not like to play amidst the mental tortures and ill-treatment.

Soon after the PCB announced the squad for the T20 World Cup, Amir made himself once again available for national selection. According to the rule, when a player is away from the game for over a year, he shall first be obliged for domestic cricket rather than his direct involvement in the national squad.

Amir’s case was different as he directly wanted to be in the limited-overs squads. The board, despite whatever happened, granted him the domestic contract 2020-21 that he immediately turned down. He talked dual-faced saying the contract should be rendered to the youngster to earn his bread and butter. Moreover, he said the board knows he is away from cricket and should not consider a ‘domestic’ arena. He specified that he is enjoying his league career.

Ask Amir what was the mental torture, says Waqar Younis:

Waqar, in an interview with reliable sources, upon being queried on the synopsis, said that the question should not be asked to him but to the one who talked about these tortures.

“You are asking the question from the wrong person. Did he answer what is mental torture? I don’t know anything about mental torture, maybe he should elaborate on what is mental torture,”
