Bio

Born on 16 November 1971, Waqar Younis went on to represent Pakistan in 87 Tests and 262 ODIs. Troubling the batsmen with pace and swing, Waqar Younis was considered the purveyor of reverse swing and the in-swinging yorker. In Tests, he accumulated 373 wickets at an average of 23.56. In ODIs, he picked up 416 wickets, with his best bowling figure being his 7 for 36 against England in Leeds in 2001. Together with Wasim Akram, he formed one of history's most formidable bowling attacks. Waqar became the 70th member to be inducted into the ICC Hall of Fame
