Young cricketers welcome to challenge seniors Waqar Younis
Bowling coach Pakistan cricket team Waqar Younis says it is welcome for young cricketers to challenge seniors.
In an exclusive interview with Geo News, Waqar Younis said that youngsters are slowly being given a chance and they are becoming part of the teams but the reality is that now we need to find players for Test cricket. With domestic cricket starting, I hope it will be looked at by all selectors and coaches and players will be found. We have to work harder in Test cricket than in white ball.
Waqar Younis said that many bowlers have come forward in white ball cricket, there are also batsmen, Haider Ali got a chance, similarly there is competition among bowlers, they are also being given a chance, any bowler including Shaheen Afridi can be over. Not loaded.
He says that Shaheen is playing all three formats but recently he has not played much cricket, I think our players have played less cricket, they need to play more cricket, when it will be difficult and on them As the load increases, they will become stronger and with the same strength, their fitness will improve.
The former fast bowler of the national team said that at present our bowlers have come from the under-19s and have less experience, they are playing less cricket so they are a little behind in fitness, they have to work on fitness and strengthen themselves. I think Harris Rauf can play Test cricket too, all he has to do is improve his fitness.
Waqar Younis said, “I would like players to play domestic cricket before going to New Zealand and get used to long-form cricket so that it is easy for them in New Zealand.”
The bowling coach of the national team said that it is welcome for young cricketers to challenge seniors, challenging young cricketers has also improved the performance of seniors, and experienced players played well in the T20 match against England.
He said that Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir are an asset for us, it is not only to feed the youth, it is also necessary to keep the experienced seniors together, they also have to be given a chance, the combination of juniors and seniors has to be maintained.
Waqar Younis said that there is still one year in T20 World Cup, hopefully they will succeed in making the combination.
