LAHORE - Pakistan cricket teams coach Waqar Younis denied interfering in former captain Shahid Afridis job on Thursday and expressed his surprise on his statement. As a coach, I have my own domain and I know my job description. Neither had I interfered in Afridis job nor in selection affairs, he told media men after a meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Ijaz Butt here at Gadaffi Stadium. He said that Afridis statement that coach intervened in his job came as a surprise and he failed to understand why the ex captain said so. I always try to concentrate on my job and also try my best to be fully indulged in my own job only in future as long as I am the coach of the team. Talking about his meeting with PCB Chief Ijaz Butt, Waqar said that he had a positive and productive meeting in which he submitted the tour report of West Indies and now it was up to the chairman whether he might take any action or not. He said as a coach he was also under heavy load of responsibilities as if the team performed good he would have get the credit and in case of the teams failure, he was blamed for that. Waqar further said that the players were playing abroad for consecutively for the last seven or eight months and in such a situation, there could be minor differences among them but they should not make it a big issue. Afridi was a good captain and I was satisfied with his captaincy, he said when asked about Afridis captaincy. Waqar termed teams recent tour of West Indies a success and said it made a come back after suffering defeat in the first Test before doing too good in the ODI series. He said Misbah perfumed his responsibility very well as a captain in West Indies and in Ireland as well. The team official appreciated young players Junaid Khan and Azhar Ali saying that they were the future of Pakistan cricket. He supported the idea of having a batting coach with the team adding it was a responsibility of the PCB to look into that matter. Even without a batting coach, our batting put up a fine show in the recent tours. Waqar rejected a questioner that Pakistan team was playing against weaker opposition. I do not agree with the sayings that we are playing against the low ranking teams but all these assignments are part of our tour programme and gave the young players experience and international exposure. He said the coming assignments of the team were a mixture of strong and weak teams as Pakistan will be playing England, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe. As a coach, my responsibility is to lift the level of the team in every event and I am up to that specific task, Waqar concluded.
