Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis revealed that a contract extension was not on his priority list, but upcoming assignments of Pakistan were. With the T20 Asia Cup and the ICC World T20 just around the corner, Pakistan are under tremendous pressure as their recent results in limited overs have been simply dismal. England whitewashed Pakistan 3-0 in the T20I series in UAE, and that was followed by a 2-1 series loss to New Zealand.

Younis, in his recent media interaction said that his priority was to ensure that Pakistan did well in the tournaments to come in the near future. “I have still three to four months of my contract left and right now I haven’t given a thought to the future,” Waqar said.  “Coaching of any team is always a tough job. It doesn’t matter whether you do well or disappoint. It is a tough job and I knew about this when I accepted this challenge. I enjoy taking up tough challenges,” he said.

Younis also hinted that Pakistan could potentially alter their squad for the World Cup depending upon the team’s outcome in the Asia Cup. “Yes, changes could be there but right now we have to see how the team performs in the Asia Cup. The selectors have done their job and we will have to see how the new players perform,” he said.

He also had something to say about flamboyant opener Ahmad Shehzad, who was recently axed from the T20 squad. “It is not a question of likes or dislikes or egos. He has not been consistent and he now has to go back to domestic cricket and get back into form. He is a talented player and can definitely make a comeback to the Pakistan team.”
