NAPIER---Pakistan great Waqar Younis says
modern One-Day cricket is "unfair" to faster
bowlers and he s glad he s not playing under cur-
Waqar, who is now coach of the Pakistan team,
says flat wickets, fielding restrictions and bigger
bats have tipped the balance of the game too far
in favour of batsmen.
In his playing days, Waqar was a master of the
fast yorker which made him one of the most effec-
tive death bowlers in the history of the game. He
still believes the yorker is the most effective ball
to bowl in the late overs but says bowlers have a
tough job under any circumstances.
Waqar told reporters after Pakistan s 129-run
win over Afghanistan yesterday: "It is a little unfair
to faster bowlers I would say or to any bowlers,
especially when the field is (up). You don t really
know which way to bowl."
"Yes, with death bowling, still I feel the yorker
is the best ball," he said. "They have different the-
ories from different coaches coming down and
asking for balls, short balls using those square
fielders. But I still feel the good yorker is the best
Waqar said trends in modern cricket have been
shaped by the desire to appeal to fans.
"It s an entertaining world, I guess," he said.
"People want to see big sixes and all that and
that s why the rules and laws have been changed
in the recent past.
"The wickets have become really flatter and the
batsmen are a lot fitter and the bats are thicker.
So there are a lot of things going in batters favour.
I guess it s a crowd-pull thing. But for me, I believe
it should be an even contest."
