KARACHI: Former Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis, who recently resigned from his post, has landed a new job as he is all set to commentate in the ninth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
According to the Express Tribune, the 44-year-old had signed a deal with Indian TV channel Sony to cover this year’s IPL season.
Waqar had stepped down from the post of the head coach after Pakistan’s humiliating exit from the World T20 at the group stage.
Declaring his resignation with a heavy heart, the 44-year-old said that Pakistan Cricket Board's failure to implement his recommendations after 2015 World Cup and leak of a confidential report after the team's World T20 exit played a major role behind his resignation three months before his contract expires.
The former bowler appeared in 87 Tests and 262 ODIs for Pakistan, where he claimed a total of 789 international wickets.
The IPL9 will kick start from tomorrow, when Mumbai Indians will take on new team Rising Pune in the opening match at the Wankhede Stadium.
