    Former Pakistan cricketer Waqar Younis pointing out the snags that led to Pakistan’s failure in the ICC World Cup 2019, held senior players responsible.

    Speaking to Daily Jang, the 47-year-old former captain of the Green Shirts revealed that senior players try to haul their careers forward when they should be asked to quit instead.

    "Till the last moment, our World Cup squad was not final and clear. There is a big problem that senior players try to linger on in their careers and there is no one to tell them it is time for them to retire gracefully," he said.

    He went on to mention that the forms and fitness of the players should not be compromised: “The way we struggled to win against Afghanistan in the final over it should not be like that. Our biggest problem is we make compromises in selection on fitness issues, seniority, and other matters.”

    Moreover, he said that every four years when the World Cup arrives, Pakistan puts forth the same squad with only minor changes of one or two players.

    I don't think Hafeez will understand this.
    His brain will interpret it as, it's for Amir since Amir is a pace bowler and Waqar was also a pace bowler - so it's between a bowler to bowler.

    Hafeez is still eyeing the captaincy.

    Amir is only 27, this is not the age to take retirement.

    1000% certain Waqar is talking about Hackfeez.

    Why are former players so dumb? He says the same squad plays every 4 years barring one or two changes. Has he seen Pakistan's 2015 WC squad?
