LAHORE - Pakistan coach Waqar Younis has received strong support from PCB chief Ijaz Butt for his efforts to rebuild the national team following loss of some key players to controversies and scandals. "I am very happy with what Waqar is doing. He has a plan to move forward and he has handled the team well despite the situation arising out of the spot-fixing controversies surrounding our players and other issues," Butt said. He said he had personally seen the good work done by Waqar. "The biggest plus is that Waqar understands our cricket culture and has no problems communicating with the players," Butt said. "He has kept the team united despite the off-the-field controversies we have had to face since last year," Butt said. Butt said having seen the work put in by Waqar, he was confident of a good showing form the team in the World Cup. Earlier, Waqar urged the team to put the spot-fixing controversy behind, move on and make a fresh start. "The World Cup provides us with a great opportunity to make a fresh start. It has been difficult for the players since the controversies broke out last year in England but they have handled it well," he said.
