Waqar wants Pakistan to shed defensive mindset

LAHORE, (SANA): Waqar Younis has said that he’s returning for his second stint as Pakistan’s cricket coach with a positive frame of mind and wants to bring more aggressiveness to the squad ahead of next year’s World Cup.

Waqar Younis led the team to the semifinals of the 2010 World Twenty20 and 2011 World Cup before resigning in August 2011 for personal reasons, though differences with the players also reportedly played a role in his departure.

He acknowledged that there were a few problems during his last tenure as coach, “but a good coach is the one who negates all those problems and keeps all the players together.“

Waqar Younis was also hopeful that new batting coach, Zimbabwe’s Grant Flower, would help in arresting the decline in the team’s batting fortunes.

“I have heard a lot about his work ethic and I’m sure he will be able to sort things out. “

Pakistan will be competing against Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand ahead of 2015 World Cup, which Waqar Younis said should give it enough preparation for the big event.
