This year’s new IPL franchisee, Sunrisers Hyderabad have captured the services of the “sultan of reverse swing”, Waqar Younis. With tournament still a little under a month away, the Sunrisers have zeroed in on the bowling coach for the 6th edition of the tournament starting April 3, a highly placed source in the Sunriseres said.

The 41-year-old former Pakistan national team coach will be on a contract for one season. The Sunrisers start their journey against Pune Warriors at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium at Uppal.

“We have zeroed in on Waqar (Younis) as our bowling coach… We presume that his vast experience will help us in the IPL. We are yet to finish the formalities and once that is done we will make a formal announcement”.

Confirming the news Waqar told to TOI: “Yes, I have decided to join the Sunrisers Hyderabad. I am very happy to join the IPL and I hope my experience will help them”.
