Waqar Younis was my childhood hero and the reason why I became interested in cricket. He remains my favourite cricketer of all time. This page is not an attempt to mock him or insult him, but to share his funny commentary with visitors.

We hope you will enjoy reading Waqar’s gems……….

  1. #1 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:31 PM

    1) Waqar when praising Dhoni’s calm demeanour: “Dhoni has got a beautiful head on his shoulders…..”

    2) When praising Sehwag’s attacking batting: The Virender Sehwag is really on the rampage tonight.

    3) When praising some bowler for field placing: “Oh…..he is a smart bowler! He has got A Protection there.

    4) When Aamir Sohail praised Ishant Sharma saying, “Waqar, I think the reason that Ashant is getting all that extra bounce is that he is a big lanky lad”……….this is what Waqqa had to say………. “Another reason could be that he’s also very tall……………..”

    5) When praising Salman Butt, “All Salman did was just put bat on ball and timing was perfect. Beautiful play…….”

    6) “Trescothick makes a room outside off stump”

    7) “definately a nick there, i heard it in my ear”

    8. “Danish gave an extra air to the ball”

    9) Jayasuria likes to have a room, but Najaf not giving him a room

    10) “Thats 200 wickets for danish kaneria. Hez the 6th Pakistani fast bowler to acheive this”

    11) ‘What a catch…thats an absolutely catch’

    12) “Went on the backfoot and found a beautiful gap between cover and point”

    13) When the commentator Greg Blewett said, “That’s an ordinary effort by Razzaq” (when Razzaq misfielded) this is what Waqqa had to say, “…………..oo that’s worse than ordinary, that’s…………..ordinary effort

    14) ‘And a Pakistan is 181 for.. all out.

    15) “Beautifully Shot”

    A boy in the crowd with an “I love you” banner for Shahid Afridi:

    Dean Jones: “Now that´s bit gayish, isn´t it?”

    Waqar Younis: “Not really Deano, there are lot of them in Pakistan.”

  3. #3 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:37 PM

    “Thats a Shahid Afridi…Khan”

  4. #4 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:37 PM

    “Bathing used to be a must in our days after the match……. We used to stink like as if on a hell”

  5. #5 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:38 PM

    “Virender Taibu is….a…. good batsman.”

  6. #6 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:38 PM

    “I remember he is a very good all-rounder. He once he took five wickets and made two runs.”

  7. #7 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:40 PM

    “Test match cricket is a all about playing a lot of cricket !”

  8. #8 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:40 PM

    Waqar Younis on Saeed Ajmals doosra..

    “we haven’t really seen Umar Gul yet bowling the doosra”

  9. #9 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:41 PM

    (On Robin Uthappa)

    “This Robin, he is a good Batman“.

  10. #10 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:42 PM

    Waqar about why IPL is in India:

    “The idea is to have a cricket in India”

  11. #11 by khansahab on November 29, 2009 - 2:42 PM

    “That was a definitely Kamran Akmal down the wicket”

  12. #12 by JAVED A. KHAN on November 29, 2009 - 3:50 PM


    You are forgetting a few….. I can add a couple more here.

    1. Mohammad Jayasuriya
    2. This Dilshan, his bowling is not good and his batting is also not good. But, the only reason he is a KEEP in the team is because of his fielding.

  13. #13 by JAVED A. KHAN on November 29, 2009 - 3:59 PM

    LOL @ Murali bajana

    Muttaih is now feeling his age. He has announced that he may not even play the 2011 WC. I guess if he gets bashed by Sehwag a few more times he will immediately announce his retirement from ALL forms of game. He took 5 wickets for 396 runs which is so unlike the Javelin Thrower. 😀

    I want Mendis to get the same treatment from Sehwag and Yuvraj, the Sri Lankans have praised and protected Mendis so much that they want to make him another god. Whenever he gets bashed Sangakara and Jayawerdene takes him off. Also, in some of the round matches they don’t play Mendis by saying we don’t want to expose him (to the Sun, kaheen aur kala na ho jai) and wants to preserve him for big games!

  14. #14 by khansahab on December 3, 2009 - 8:18 PM

    Waqar was asked how his lunch was and this was his reply,

    “Yeah it was a brilliant“.

  15. #15 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 3, 2009 - 8:49 PM


    He loves to add “A” in front of everything 😉

    I dunno if you have noticed Ramiz Raja, he has a very peculiar way of pronouncing anything starting with “A” for e.g., if you ask him to say “Alice” he would say Aye-Liss.

    Sri Lanka’s new commentator and ex-cricketer Russel Arnold says “Defi – Neat – ly”

  16. #16 by khansahab on December 9, 2009 - 10:36 PM

    1) “Danish Vettori”

    2) “I tell you………you seen a mud bowls of Sharjah few years ago…..buttaaaa……….this pitch has a grass on it!!!”

    3) “I lived in UAE for 2 years but I never seen a rain………..”

  17. #17 by khansahab on December 12, 2009 - 7:06 PM

    Commentator asks Waqar if Waqar had fish for lunch and how he liked it, this is Waqar’s reply:

    “Yeah it was beautiful, literally beautiful……………”

  18. #18 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 12, 2009 - 7:08 PM


    he must have been telling about the fish before it was cooked. 😀


    Since you are here, and I am sure you must have read Shoaib’s request, so please do the honours of writing a thread on Sehwag. Who is in the making of a LEGEND. 😉

  19. #19 by Maza786 on December 13, 2009 - 12:08 PM

    Waqar Younis is destroying his cricketing reputation by commentating. He was a great bowler, one of the finest of all time but now his pathetic commentary and regular “slip of tongue” is embarrassing. Get him of the mike and just let him be bowling coach. Even Maulvi Mushy is better then him in terms of fluency although he has some regular obsession with “body language”.

  20. #20 by Maza786 on December 13, 2009 - 12:12 PM

    “The lunch was vey yummy and a Umar Akmal play a very yummy shot”

  21. #21 by khansahab on December 13, 2009 - 3:17 PM


    I am disagree with Maulvi Mushy being a better commentator than Waqar. You obviously don’t know what you are talking about. Will you be any better in the commentary box if you were in Waqar’s position?

    You really think so?

  22. #22 by Maza786 on December 13, 2009 - 6:12 PM

    What makes u think I am comparing myself to Waqar? Waqar is a professional in the field of broadcasting and therefore has no right to comment in the stupid manner he does. He should be sacked. I’m surprised it hasn’t come yet.

  23. #23 by Maza786 on December 13, 2009 - 6:47 PM

    “I think what Pakistan is trying to do is injure Ian O Brien finger because they would love him not to bowl in the second innings. WTF is he blabbing about ?”

  24. #24 by khansahab on December 14, 2009 - 9:18 PM

    Mohammed Yousuf has played an ankle role here

  25. #25 by khansahab on December 14, 2009 - 9:19 PM

    A danish is geetting A quite alot of A spin

  26. #26 by khansahab on December 14, 2009 - 9:21 PM

    botham: so waqar u think the fine leg should be placed here do you?

    waqar: : that is a true

  27. #27 by khansahab on December 14, 2009 - 9:23 PM


    The batsman drives the ball, it goes PAST the bowler.

    Waqar: “Yah…that went a THROUGH THE BOWLER’S LEGS!!”

  28. #28 by JAVED A. KHAN on December 14, 2009 - 11:50 PM

    A Waqar is a good commentator and we will miss a commentary when his is a bowling coach and a fielding coach.

  29. #29 by Shoaib on December 19, 2009 - 1:24 AM

    very funny comments, great collection, such frequent use of ‘a’ reminds me of President Zia ul Haq’s ”and-aaaaaaaAAaa” 😀

  30. #30 by khansahab on February 20, 2010 - 2:56 PM

    Pieterson hits a 50 and Waqar says

    “This is not the first time he has taken THE England out of trouble”.

  31. #31 by Talha on April 11, 2010 - 5:22 AM

    On the NZ tour when a fielder produced a direct hit and run out a batsmet. Waqar said: “He had one aim to stump at”

  32. #32 by Talha on April 11, 2010 - 5:23 AM

    Did I just say Batsmet :S Im even worse than Waqar

  33. #33 by khansahab on April 11, 2010 - 6:59 AM


    Welcome to LS. LOL I remember reading about that “one aim to stump at”.

    Waqar has made so many bloopers, I should have recorded all of them since he started saying them. I find “Jayasuria wants a room” and “”I never seen a rain” the funniest.

  34. #34 by Talha on April 12, 2010 - 5:47 AM

    Thanks for welcoming me. 🙂
    BTW you come off as a 70 year old guy to me because of your Avatar 😛 are you really 70?
    Now Waqar is the coach and we may not see him commentating for a long time now. Sad :(.
    Most fun commentator ever?

  35. #35 by JAVED A. KHAN on April 12, 2010 - 10:36 AM


    khansahab’s age is like Elephant’s teeth. “Haathi kay daant, khaanay kay aur, dikhaway kay aur.” Don’t go by his looks, he is aging fast 😉 His physical age is measured in dog years and his mental age can be measured in crow years.

    Yeah, “I am agree” that, Waqar is the most funniest commentator ever. For me, the best one is when he commented about Dilshan a few years ago i.e., when Dilshan was not an opening batsman and he used to play as number 6, or 7. Waqar said: “This man, Dilshan is not a good bowler nor a good batman, the only reason he is a keep in the team is because of his fielding.” And, of course on Robin Uthappa, he said:

    “This Robin is a good Batman.”

    Btw, you may comment on the current thread too.

  36. #36 by khansahab on July 25, 2010 - 4:09 PM

    LOL I’ve just read somewhere, a few years ago Danish Kaneria almost got a hat trick against England, this is what Waqar said:

    “Thats out!!…………..that’s hattrick……I tell you…..!””

    LOL, it’s really funny if you imagine him saying that in his accent.

  37. #37 by Zahid Haseeb on September 24, 2011 - 4:47 AM

    Waqar jaisay log Pakistan k cricket hero rahay hain. Aisee batian ker k unhain zaleel mut karain. English main haer phaer say koi faraq nahi perta. Iss duniya k 90 feesad ssay zayda mumalik main english theek boni naha atti. Lakin koi b hamarai tarah kum maegy or chhoti zahneeat balkay ghulamana zahneat ka izhar nahi kerta. Waqar ko b paisa kamanay do or mut zaleel kero apnay he logon ko. English aani chaheeay lakin itni b nahi ka hum iss ko izato zilat ka mayar bana lain. I really feel sorry for everyone. We always intend to demoralize our own people. I simply do not like this attitude of ours. Stop doing the nonsense.

  38. #38 by Pyaasi Aatma on September 24, 2011 - 9:58 AM

    My brother Zahid

    Waqar has been a hero for Pakistan cricket and no one is trying to insult him. If we wanted to insult people who speak poor English we could have created a page on Inzamam’s, or Afridi’s, or Wasim Akram’s English. But, this is all light hearted because of the meaning that Waqar ends up conveying.

    So, please don’t consider this as an insult to Waqar. He remains one of the favourite cricketers of many members of this blog, although his drugs scandal, ball tampering , match fixing, and recent indulgence in team politics has tainted his greatness to some extent.

  39. #39 by Pyaasi Aatma on September 24, 2011 - 10:00 AM

    Shoaib Akhtar was a problem and remains a problem, says Wasim Akram

    MUMBAI: Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram today ridiculed Shoaib Akhtar and his controversial autobiography, which has made several tall claims, saying that the pacer was a “problem” when he was an active player and remains just that even in retirement.
    Akram pooh-poohed Shoaib’s claims of making Sachin Tendulkar uncomfortable with his pace in the Faisalabad Test in 2006 and also rejected some of the other allegations he has made in the book titled ‘Controversially Yours’.

    “I remember one of Sachin’s knocks in the Sialkot Test. It was the fourth Test and the wicket had lot of grass, I was 22 and Waqar was 19 and we were very fast,” Akram recalled.

    “Waqar hit him on his chin and he came back after taking treatment and scored a 50. If a 16-year-old can’t be scared, I don’t think any batsman can be scared. It hardly matters what Shoaib says,” Akram told reporters here.

    Akram said Shoaib, who was a controversial figure all through his playing career, was just trying to sell his book with tall claims and also rejected allegations that he tried to destroy the tearaway pacer’s career.

    “Whatever the Pakistan Cricket Board says, I am with them. He was a problem when he was in the team and he is a problem when he is out of the team,” Akram said.

    He knows, I know and the world knows that he was himself responsible for destroying his career. There is a lot to talk but I don’t want to humiliate him. There is an unwritten code among players that some facts should not be revealed before the media,” he warned.

    “You guys (media) will ensure that his book is a bestseller,” he said.

  40. #40 by JAVED A. KHAN on September 24, 2011 - 10:15 AM

    Mr. Zahid Haseeb — What do you mean by nonsense? If you say something it is sense? When others express their views it is nonsense?

    If you don’t like the so-called attitude of the blog, simply don’t visit, don’t read. No one is forcing you to do so. But, you cannot control the whole world, can you?

    Yahan, Urdu aur Angrezi key baat nahee ho rehi hai. Yahan pehlay Waqar ki integrity ki baat ho rehi thee….. Waqar along with Wasim, Mushtaq, Ata ur Rahman, Saleem Malik and Ijaz Ahmad were banned for playing cricket for Pakistan and not just that, they were not allowed take up any official position in any government or semi-government organization. But, the Butt regime and the previous one did not show any respect for the law of the country.

    The irony is first Mushtaq was made bowling coach of Pakistan team, then Waqar and then Ijaz was made fielding coach and finally Waqar was made the main coach. On what grounds? The team wasn’t doing good except for the fact that Afridi gelled the team as a captain and made them into a winning team. For losing the WC in India, Afridi is made responsible whereas Waqar and Intikhab are hailed as heroes.(Misbah de Pyjamay da koi Zikr Nai aye) Why? What have they done? Inti was waiting to tell the world that when he was the manager in 1992, the team won and when he is the manager the team won again. In 1992 MY FOOT that the team won because of Intikhab, Imran Khan never talked to that guy on any matters except for telling to take care of the flying schedule and hotel arrangements.

    Even during the recent West Indies tour, the first three matches were won by Afridi’s team and then Waqar and Inti changed the team and forced a team that the captain did not like it and they lost the 2 matches (one on D/L method with a very narrow margin and the other because the team was pissed off by the selection). And, they blame Afridi for it? What kinda people are they that they take the credit and pass on the criticism when the team loses.

    The BUTT regime has taken so much powers that it is not just a handful of people but, the whole world is talking about and that MF is going to get an extension of another 6 months to screw up the future of the team further. For BUTT it is BIG matter of EGO which is obvious from his BUTT and his ugly mouth that he keeps blabbering filth all the time.

    You say about 90% of the people in the world cannot speak English properly?
    I am not sure from where you’ve arrived at that figure, even in China which is world’s largest populated country and Russia ( a new country now ) they speak English these days, Indians (the second largest population in the world) and Sri Lankans speak a hundred times better than Pakistanis, then the whole of America, Canada, England, Scotland, Bangladesh and bunch of other countries have English as their official language.

    It is not a matter of accent, but the grammatical blasphemies and the bloopers they (Wasim and Waqar) make, we laugh at them. That is the least we can do. Its a shame that when you reach to that level you don’t bother about the country’s image anymore and on top of that you think that your English is AAA …….. Ignorance is bliss……. some of their admirers say, “Wasim …tay…. Waqaar Wadi Changi Engrezi Bolday Ain.” Theek hai jee tusi khush reho maoj kero. “Bambooed” kero logan noo (that is what they both said on TV as commentators) instead of Bamboozled they both said, Bambooed…And the Australian commentators were laughing their heads off and one of the said,. Seems like they have been Bambooed all their life.

    One of our friends here on the blog said something very apt……… If you create a “C” outta yourselves, you ought to get F’d.”

  44. #44 by Aatma-hathya on October 22, 2011 - 9:08 PM


    If you read the main thread comments you will see we have continued discussion on Waqar’s commentary 😀

    I haven’t heard Bakht much, but from memory he seemed to speak ok.

  45. #45 by Aatma-hathya on November 15, 2011 - 10:38 PM

    Umar Akmal Cover drives Fernando for 4 !!…

    Waqar: “Well hes in a rush now… Look at that… Crispy!! That was a serious Crisp!!”

  46. #46 by Aatma-hathya on November 15, 2011 - 10:42 PM

    “I thought Dilshan will probably look to bring Malinga back in the last few overs. He is bowling now however” – Russel Arnold.

    “Yeah, he has been a very effective death bowler…… Mainly because of his blowing…….. blowjob of the tailenders” – Waqar Younis.

  47. #47 by Aatma-hathya on November 16, 2011 - 4:10 PM

    Waqar on Imran Farhat:

    “Imran Farhat should not play ODI cricket….. He is more of a limited overs cricket batsman…. By that I mean Test cricket….”

  48. #48 by JAVED A. KHAN on February 23, 2012 - 8:19 AM

    Recently in one of the matches the TV camera zoomed into the crowd and a woman had a baby in her arms and then she covered him in her Dupatta to breast feed him. Waqar spotted that and said: “I think its a MILK, Oya, its definitely a milk.”

  49. #49 by JAVED ALI KHAN (@badnoc) on March 16, 2012 - 9:44 AM

    We have collected a few more of Waqar’s gems in his commentary during the Asia Cup 2012

    1. If you take off Umar Gul’s short you will find muscles everywhere.
    2. On Saeed Ajmal, he bowled well today but, SOMETIMES he NEVER listens to me
    3. On Misbah getting out, you see there is “no feets movement” I think its due to his spike got stuck in the pitch.
    4. Athar Ali Khan the Bangladeshi commentator concured, “Yeah there is no FEETAL movement there.”


  50. #50 by Jawad Masood on March 27, 2012 - 8:41 AM

    hahaha…..good one…just cant stop laughing
