Legendary cricketer, Waqar Younis was officially inducted into the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Hall of Fame on Wednesday.

PCB Chief Executive, Faisal Hasnain presented a commemorative cap and plaque to Waqar Younis during the third test match between Pakistan and Australia at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore.


Younis expressed his joy over sharing this achievement with his family and especially with his mother.

Yonis on the occasion said, “I feel honoured to have been inducted into the PCB Hall of Fame with my mother and wife standing alongside me. In fact, it was an honour to receive the beautiful plaque from my mother, who has been my inspiration throughout this highly rewarding and immensely satisfying cricketing journey. Without her blessings, I would not have been able to achieve this much as a professional.”

He further said, “Playing for Pakistan was a dream come true and I still cherish every single moment of wearing the Pakistan colour. And to be awarded by the Pakistan Cricket Board with this honour 19 years after I last represented my country is just the icing on the cake, for which I am grateful to them.”

During his career, he took 373 Tests and 416 ODI wickets.

Last Saturday, Javed Miandad was also inducted officially into PCB Fall of Fame. He has received a commemorative cap and plaque at his residence.
