Former Pakistan captain Waqar was inducted into ICC Hall of Fame in 2013. Born in Vehari, he led his country in 17 Tests and 62 ODIs.
“It is a huge honour and privilege to be in the same category as icons like Hanif Mohammad, Imran Khan and Javed Miandad. I grew up hearing about their exploits and then ended up playing with the latter two, as well as with Wasim Akram," Waqar had said after the announcement.
“To be in the august company of some of the greatest players the game has ever seen is personally quite exciting for me. A big, heartfelt thanks from me to all the living members of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame and those from the voting academy, who thought me worthy of this.”
