Lahore:

Pakistan coach Waqar Younis will end his month long vacation in Australia to join a PCB-organised 'fast track' camp for pace bowlers.

A Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official confirmed that Waqar will reach on Thursday to supervise the camp that began this week under team manager Intikhab Alam.

The PCB is also holding a fast track camp for batsmen until July 20 followed by camps for all-rounders and spinners.

"Waqar will now be in Pakistan until the team leaves for Zimbabwe in August and will be back to prepare for the series against Sri Lanka in the UAE later this year," a PCB official said.

The PCB has also hired former Test pacer Sarfaraz Nawaz, leg-spinner Abdul Qadir to assist in the camp while chief selector Mohsin Khan is assisting the batsmen.

Waqar, a former Test captain, had left for Australia on a short vacation to be with his family after returning to Pakistan with the national team from Ireland in early June.

He was told to come to Pakistan from Ireland instead of flying directly to Australia as the Chairman of the board wanted to meet with him and discuss tour reports.

Waqar met with PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt and discussed his problems with now former captain Shahid Afridi on the West Indies tour.

Sources say the board had no intention of terminating his contract early despite his problems with Afridi in the West Indies.
