Islamabad - The Pakistan Cricket Board has given cricket great Waqar Younis a second shot as coach of the national team.

Younis was the coach for 18 months until after leading the team to the 2011 World Cup semifinals. He resigned for personal reasons.

Last month, the PCB began advertising coaching jobs for the national team, and a three-man committee including chief selector Moin Khan recommended Younis on Tuesday.

The PCB says in a statement that he was endorsed by chairman Najam Sethi.

Younis will join the team after his commitments in the Indian Premier League.
