Multan Sultans, the PSL (Pakistan Super League), s latest franchise, is set to unite one of the most feared bowling duo in Pakistani cricket, The legends Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram. Younis will be the franchise's mentor and head coach, while Akram will take the role of cricket operations director after deciding to leave Islamabad United. Akram had spent two distinct seasons with Islamabad United while Younis had been basically ignored for the first two seasons of the PSL and had appeared on various TV networks as a commentator.

This will be Waqar's first time in the PSL, having formerly been the head coach of the national side.

Wasim, in partnership with Waqar, intimidated worldwide batsmen in the 90s. In the 61 Tests that the two played together, they took 559 wickets between them.

The Sultans are owned by The Schon Group, a well-established real estate business based in Dubai.

The country continues to push for a return of visits from global teams, and their hopes for such an outcome were boosted this week when it was reported that former Zimbabwe captain Andy Flower would coach and select a World XV squad to play a three-match T20 series in Pakistan against the national side later this year.

Akram, who has been an active voice in the game since retiring from global cricket added, "It's been 70 years since the creation of Pakistan, yet we still don't have a proper structure in domestic and first-class cricket".
