LAHORE - Coach Waqar Younis said he does not harbour a grudge against Shahid Afridi and was sad over former ODI skippers retirement decision from the international cricket. Waqar Younis declined to comment on his reported dispute with former captain Shahid Afridi which has now snowballed into a major and embarrassing controversy. Waqar returned with the Pakistan team from Ireland early Thursday morning but made it clear he would not comment on the sensitive issue until he had spoken to the chairman of the board, Ijaz Butt. I really dont want to say anything right now because whatever he (Afridi) has said about me I have only seen in the media. I will meet with the board chairman and then will express my views after knowing the real issue, the former Test captain said. On Afridis decision to retire from all international cricket, Waqar said he was very disappointed to hear about and didnt know why the all-rounder had taken such a decision. It is his personal decision but a sad one. But the board appoints the captain it is their job and prerogative not mine, he stated. Waqar said as far as he was concerned he had no grudge against Afridi and had enjoyed working with him since last year. Afridi announced his retirement from international cricket this week after the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) removed him as captain from the one-day series against Ireland. The PCB was unhappy about Afridis comments concerning perceived interference in his role during the tour of West Indies, where a dispute with Waqar came to a head. I am sad that he decided to retire, Waqar told reporters here at the Allama Iqbal Airport after returning with the national team from Ireland. I dont know why he took such a decision. But I have no personal grudge with him. I have only seen all this stuff in the media and will meet with the board chairman to discuss the tour reports.But whatever has happened is not good for Pakistan cricket, which is progressing well despite us getting no international cricket at home, Waqar added. The Pakistan team returned home in two batches from Ireland to Karachi and Lahore with the PCB specially instructing Waqar to return with the team instead of going to Australia. Waqar who is now settled in Sydney, Australia was scheduled to go home as his wife is not keeping well but the board told him to first come to Pakistan. Meanwhile, Ijaz Butt was likely to meet with Waqar, manager Intikhab Alam and captain, Misbah-ul-Haq to discuss what transpired during the tour of West Indies and Ireland due to complaints by Afridi that the manager and coach were interfering in his work. Both the captain and coach expressed satisfaction over the teams performance on the twin-tour especially that of youngsters but admitted that they had squandered a good chance to beat West Indies in a Test series for the first time in their own backyard. Misbah on return also dismissed reports and rumours that he had told the board he no longer wanted to lead the team in Tests and ODIs. This is the first time I have heard about this. This is rubbish. I am willing to accept any responsibility given to me by the board, he added.
