Former Pakistan skipper Waqar Younis is all set to hang his cricketing boots next week. The 32-year-old fast bowler will retire from international cricket soon after the ongoing second Test between India and Pakistan. Waqar has been out of the Pakistani squad for over an year and reports suggest that his decision to call it a day could be based on the fact that PCB is considering him for the team's bowling coach. Waqar made his debut in 1989 against India and is among the most successful bowlers in the world. He has 373 wickets from 87 Tests and 416 wickets from 262 one-day internationals to his name. (PTI)
