Pak appoint Waqar

LAHORE: Waqar Younis has signed on as the new coach of the Pakistan side, in the process becoming the fourth coach of the team in three years. The former fast bowler has been in negotiations with the PCB over the last few days, but confirmed that he will now replace Intikhab Alam on a tenure that sees him through to December 2011. Waqar, who is in Sydney, will arrive in Lahore next week to begin work, the first assignment to prepare Pakistan's defence of the World Twenty20 crown in April-May.
