ISLAMABAD - Bowling Coach Waqar Younis unveils new talent hunt in Pakistan. Waqar Younis has said Pakistan would need to unearth new fast bowlers, adding that he is already looking into emerging talent.

“We should not stick to certain names, of course we need bowlers like Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Amir,” he said. Speaking about Amir and Wahab’s decision to retire from Test cricket, Waqar said that the duo has clearly stated that they just not want to play Test cricket, Business Recorder has reported.
Giving his view on the ongoing National T20 Cup, the former captain of Pakistan said that enough opportunity was not given to youngsters in this tournament. “I think in such tournaments, two Under-19 players should be compulsory included in the Playing XI, so that we could assess their talent,” he said.
