    Waqar is definately working hard as a captain too, he mite not be making errors but he seems to be determined, and the team should stick to him for more time, that is how he is also going to learn!

    He mite not be in his peaks, his pace is not the same as beofre due to the injusry, but he keeps on taking wickets for sure, runs bhi parte hain, lekin he definately has the burden and the good thing is he has dropped down from opening the bowling!!!

    Insha Allah he will work hard n will become successful in this world cup and for coming cricketr series.

    below is my version of the updated profile of our captain the living legend waqar younis

    Born: 16 November 1971, Vehari, Punjab

    Major Teams: Multan Division Cricket Association; Multan, United Bank Limited, Surrey, Glamorgan, Karachi Cricket Association, Rawalpindi Cricket Association, Redco Pakistan Ltd, Lahore Cricket Association, National Bank of Pakistan, Pakistan.

    Known As: Waqar Younis Maitla (full name)

    Pronounced: Waqar Younis

    Batting Style: Right Hand Bat

    Bowling Style: Right Arm Fast

    Wisden Cricketer of the Year 1992

    Best First-Class Bowling: 8-17, Glamorgan v Sussex (Swansea) 1997

    Named "Burewala Express" after his hometown in central Punjab, Waqar Younis brought back the danger, the fear, and the devastation into fast bowling that was associated with greats like Malcolm Marshall, Michael Holding, Imran Khan, and Dennis Lillie at the peak of their careers. After an innocuous performance in his debut against India at home in 1989, Waqar stormed into the international scene in 1990, with his amazing feats at the listless Sharjah wicket and has since then been possibly the most feared bowler in recent history.

    Waqar's career has been interrupted by a recurring back problem, which caused him to miss the 1992 World Cup and most of the 1995 cricketing year. Despite these lapses in his career, Waqar holds the record for reaching 200 wickets in the least number of Tests jointly with Dennis Lillie. Waqar specializes in moving the old ball a long way both into and away from the batsmen. His in-swinging yorkers have been referred to as "toe-crushers," the validity of which many batsmen can testify.

    The peak of Waqar's illustrious career started with the 1990 tour of New Zealand to Pakistan and reached its climax in the tour of England in 1992, where he combined with Wasim Akram to form one of the deadliest duo of fast bowlers in the history of Test cricket. Waqar has played county cricket for Surrey and Glamorgan, where his performances have not been less then outstanding. In Pakistan's domestic circuit, he has played for the United Bank limited and Redco Pakistan Limited along with the city teams of Rawalpindi, Lahore, Karachi, and Multan.

    The year 2000 has not been fruitful for this Pakistani pace man. In the 10 Test matches played during this period, he has claimed 34 wickets at an average of 25.91, his best figures being four for 40 against Sri Lanka at Galle.
