Pak Bowling Coach Waqar Younis not unavailable for series against Zimbabwe

LAHORE:Pakistan Cricket teams Bowling Coach Waqar Younis will not be available for series against Zimbabwe due to his wife’s surgery in Australia.

The tour to Zimbabwe starts with the opening T20 International at Harare Sports Club on April 21.

The second game will be played on 23rd and the third on the 25th. The first of the two Tests will be played from April 29.
