Waqar Younis has replaced Intikhab Alam as the new coach of the Pakistan cricket team.

 

Waqar's first assignment will be to defend the T20 crown in the ICC T20 World Cup at the Carribean.

 

"I've signed on and agreed to the contract," Waqar told a leading cricket website. "I'll be arriving in Lahore next week to begin my work."

 

PCB was considering a number of options for the top job but Waqar Younis emerged as the favorite among them.

 

"I'm absolutely honoured to take on the role and it is a very exciting challenge," Waqar said. "Hopefully I can deliver on the role. Cricket has given me a lot over the years and I want to give something back to cricket and country now. I've always played my cricket with passion and aggression and I want the team to play like that."

 

Waqar has worked twice as the bowling coach of Pakistan but has never been the head coach of any side till date.
