Time to stop crying over Misbah and Younis, says Waqar Younis

Former Pakistan Test captain and coach Waqar Younis has said that it is time for Pakistan cricket to stop ‘crying’ over the retirement of star batsmen Misbah ul Haq and Younis Khan and to fix first class cricket.

In a tweet sent out in the wake of Pakistan’s recent 3-0 whitewash against South Africa in South Africa, the former coach said that it was time to “fix and respect first class cricket.

“What is more important in cricket Heart or Mind ??? The answer of why Pakistan lost to South Africa in the Test series is in this question ..” he said in the tweet.

Pakistan, which has slipped to number 7 in the ICC Test ranking behind Sri Lanka after their recent loss in South Africa, has been facing a serious test slump since the exit of former Captains Mibsah and Younis who were considered the backbone of the team’s batting line-up. Since their retirement, subsequent batsmen have failed to live up to their mark.

Waqar Younis is not the only one to come forward with demands to improve the first class system in Pakistan in recent times.
