    I agree with WR on this. One is paid to play cricket, the other is paid to speak English on live TV. :shrug

    Nobody cares about how bad Waqar's (the player) english is, but people are within their rights to criticize Waqar, the commentator. Having said that, Waqar is still better than a lot of the Sri Lankan commentators.

    He's not doing that well as coach so might just have him back as a commentator.

    No he doesn't. He only knows adulation and that's what he does best

    In the recent tour of England. He was given the third man role few times and not once he came up with anything useful. What he came up was how Sarfraz is always active fpalm
    Others were bringing in some good points but adulation champion was being the adulation champion he is

    He's already come up with a gem this series lol.

    When Pollard took that catch off Babar Azam, Waqar's reaction was "What a reflection" :rofl :rofl

    Pretty sure he meant reflex action lool.

    I don't get why you peeps are loling over this. English isn't his native language. He didn't grew up in burger land like most of you burgers

    So ?

    Don't most living overseas do that. It's human nature to adopt to its surroundings

    He's signed a professional contract to provide match commentary in ENGLISH whilst clearly being under qualified for the job, like most commentators from Pakistan are, sadly.
