Legendary fast bowler Waqar Younis and his wife Faryal Waqar met on Twitter to congratulate each other on their 21st anniversary.
It all started with an emotional and touching note by Faryal on the couple’s relationship over the years.
He shared two photos of himself and Waqar, the title of which describes their journey together.
Faryal wrote, “We spend a lot of time because we always seem to be second to none in your work. I still hang on because you make me proud of what you do and who you are. ”
He said he had “no other choice”.
Waqar responded with a wish for his birthday. He thanked his wife for all the sacrifices.
Waqar Younis announced his retirement at a crowded press conference in Islamabad on Monday, which was attended by journalists covering the memorable series between Pakistan and India. On this occasion, Waqar Younis first read out the written statement and then answered the questions.
Waqar Younis was the captain of the Pakistan cricket team in the 2003 World Cup in which she could not advance beyond the first stage. After the World Cup, despite his desire to play, he could not be selected in the team again. Before Waqar Younis, Saeed Anwar and Wasim Akram, who were in the World Cup squad, have said goodbye to international cricket.
Announcing his retirement, Waqar Yunus also mentioned the World Cup and said that he trusted the wrong people but he did not want to go into details on this occasion but he will cover his entire career in biography.
Waqar Younis regrets that the World Cup was not made for him. He was at his peak in 1992 but could not be a part of Pakistan’s glorious victory. In 1996, Pakistan lost to India in the quarterfinals. In 1999, he could only play a match against Bangladesh and in 2003, under his leadership, the performance of the Pakistan team was disappointing.
Waqar Yunus says that the competition with Wasim Akram has been beneficial for the Pakistan cricket team and both of them have achieved many important successes with their excellent bowling.
Waqar Younis, popularly known as Burewala Express, who has taken 373 wickets in Test cricket and 416 in ODIs, says that cricket has given him everything and he certainly wants to return his experience to Pakistan cricket.
Waqar Yunus complains that the art that the world now calls reverse swing was called ball tampering when he did it. He had learned this art in his college days which brought him to maturity with Imran Khan and Wasim Akram.
Waqar Younis says he will always remember Headingley’s bowling against South Africa in Durban and England. He was certainly a dangerous spell.
