    Waqar younis was a great fast bowler, undoubtedly the best i've seen in my life n truly adore him for his bowling but, his commentary is just "out of this world" n this thread is a tribute to his legendary comments.

    After retiring from cricket, waqar found a career in commentary *scratches head* first he got a contract with channel 9 but since they realized their mistake, tensports has been the guilty party!!

    We all make grammatical mistakes n maybe more than what waqar makes but then we're not the ones who get paid thousands of dollars every series!! so its okay having a laugh on his commentary's expense.

    btw, its not only his grammar, the way he tries pronouncing every word in aussie accent makes it just too much!! he'd even pronounce urdu words like 'akmal' as 'akmul' *facepalm* 'five' as 'foive' *facepalm* 'nine' as 'noine' 'fine' as 'foine', so on n so forth. twisting his tongue for the sake of sounding aussie, isn't that some kind of wannabe-ism??

    however, his grip over technical aspects of game is pretty good, just needs to sort his accent n grammar out a little.

    one of waqar's famous quotes:

    Waqar is actually a good analyst despite his strange Angraizi which personally I enjoy. He does get the point across even if it's in a weird way, he's my favourite Pakistani comm

    Today was awesome, Waqar was in form with his commentry but the one that stood out for me and i noted in the Match thread was when Sri Lanka bowling when Pakistan were 34/3 he said "If Pakistan were here they would win, because they have the sources !"

    I was just laughing at that one, classic! :rofl :good

    When South Africa toured Pakistan i think, it was the morning of the game and Waqar and Robin Jackman (AKA Jackers) were on commentary.

    Jackman did the traditional, morning everyone blah blah blah...

    Jackman: ...Morning Waqar
    Waqar: (Obviously saying 'Jackers') ...Morning Jackass

    "He wants a room, but he isn't giving him a room [!]".

    waqar's gems from 2nd t20:

    number 1)

    in pre-match discussion on pakistan's prospects:

    "pakistan's bowling is doing great but their bowling errr.... boating errrr... batting has been letting them down.

    gotta admire the way he mixed batting n bowling to form a new word aka "boating"!!

    number 2)

    talking about ajmal's doosra which got lokuarachi stumped:

    "batsman was way down the track, before he (doosra) was even bowled"

    never knew ball was a male, again waqar letting us now the unknown!! waqar u legend!!

    Well, I actually just made it and added as an image. To actually use it in your posts, you'd have to save the image and therefore use the "upload file" button. It's not actually put as a smiley, if you get me?

    Yes the com box will not be the same without Waqar. Can't make up my mind, because I really want him to excel in the job to enhance the reputation of Pakistan on foreign soil.
