The first ever PSL Champions Islamabad United came into news when their former bowling coach and Mentor, Wasim Akram decided to leave the camp and start afresh with Multan from the 3rd Edition. Then there were rumors of the two W’s reuniting as It was speculated that Wasim Akram would be joined by his Bowling Partner back in the days, Waqar Younis in the management of Multan Sultans.
Although the People will not get to see the duo work together as a few days ago Waqar Younis has shaken hands with the owners of Islamabad United and signed up as a bowling coach and director of the team. However the Question that might come in many Islamabad United fans is will Waqar Younis be able to replace and be as effective as Wasim Akram was with the squad?
Waqar Younis is quite experienced in coaching as he previously had coached the national team and also had guided them to some big victories. Not only that but many bowlers have been groomed under the mentoring of Waqar so he knows how to use his bowlers in UAE or Pakistan which is a plus point for Islamabad.
The United have done a decent job by roping in another Bowling Legend like Wasim Akram as the skill level of both legends is equal. however we will have to wait for a while in order to see wether Waqar Younis justifies his selection as a bowling coach as well as a team director and help Islamabad do well in PSL 3 ormaybe even lead them to another title victory.
