‘Most vicious delivery he’s bowled since that yorker to Lara’: Waqar reverses it in to Sethi
Former Pakistan pacer Waqar Younus has gone all guns blazing at ex-Pakistan Cricket Board chief Najam Sethi. Younus took to Twitter and commented on Sethi’s recent interview with Samaa in which the former chief talked about lobbying in cricket and said Waqar did not perform up to the mark as Pakistan’s coach.
“Safaarshii tola ??? Look who’s talking.. kamal karta ho aap be @najamsethi sb.. kuch be bolta rahta ho #Dabang of PCB. Your days in cricket are well over dear.. stick to your dirty politics” is what the former pacer said.

What Najam Sethi said
The former PCB chief was talking to Samaa in an interview, a clip of which was quote tweeted by Younus. In the video, Sethi revealed that lobbying existed in cricket. Groups were made on basis of cities or interests. “It is an unfortunate reality and we can not deny it”.
Sethi also said that former cricketer Mohsin Hasan Khan approached him when he became the chief and requested him to make Khan the national selector or coach. “I talked to people regarding Mohsin Khan, and almost everyone said it was not a good idea.” Terming both Waqar and Mohsin as ‘Sifarshi Tola’, Sethi said Waqar was given a chance but his performance was not something to be proud of.
“I was the one who brought Waqar, but instead he turned against me and I still don’t know why,” Sethi said.
Sethi’s statements have not impressed Waqar Younas, but Younas’ tweet has brought about a wave of criticism too for his choice of words. Others have took the ex-pacer’s tweet on a lighter note.

Here’s a user endorsing Sethi’s statements. Not nice to read if you are Waqar Younus
Waqar Younis was a legandary bowler, but probably the worst coach that Pakistani team had, Najam Sethi is correct here.

Pretty much the same as above
Despite all the conflicts we have with @najamsethi he is the one who has improved Pakistan cricket even the critics will admit that but as far u r concerned @waqyounis99 at the time when u were the coach Pak cricket was it's worst, u were the one responsible for that mess..

Frankly Waqar u didn’t do much in ur coaching career and What Najam did was way much more than any of his predecessors !! So even though his career in PCb is over but he will be remembered while you will only be remembered for your bowling career only which i believe is over too

‘Choorain Waqar bhai’
Choray Waqar Bhai; don't need to stoop to his level. You're a legend of the game and will be an eternal fav for us true cricket fans. Daffa karay Sethi jessay logo ko… keep your dignity intact instead of getting involved in a mud slinging game with the Sethis

And here is standard operating procedure of Pakistan cricket defined
Pakistani ex-cricketers's standard operating procedure:
