Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis has said would be ready to put in his papers if he doesn’t deliver results with the national team.

Waqar, who has a three-year contract with the Pakistan Cricket Board, said he would review his own performance as bowling coach after a year. “I will be reviewing myself after a year and let me make it clear, if I feel I am not good enough for the job and I am not doing justice to it I will resign and leave myself,” he told a YouTube channel CricketBaaz.

“It is not as if because I have a three-year contract I will hang around. I have some set targets in mind and I want to help and groom the young fast bowlers. The way I look at it my plan is prepare a settled bowling attack for Test cricket and keep a rotation policy for the white-ball formats. Where we adopt a horses-for-courses policy, pick those who are in form for us.”

He said so far he was satisfied after having taken over as bowling coach in October, 2019.

“We have got some exciting young fast bowlers like Shaheen Shah, Naseem Shah, Muhammad Hasnain and we are looking at more talent. That does not mean I will ignore those who had done well in domestic cricket.”
