The International Cricket’s Hall of Fame Bradman Museum honoured Pakistan’s ex-captain and current bowling coach Waqar Younis for his services to cricketing fraternity.
Younis is the first Pakistani to receive the honouree bat which features the original signature of the late Sir Donald Bradman as well as his own along with two hand-painted portraits of the former cricketers.
The ‘Burewala Express’ was honoured at 13th annual Bradman Gala Dinner at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Taking to Twitter, Waqar shared a picture of him and his family at the ceremony to receive the honour.
The Bradman Honouree is a distinguished title which is given to two named personalities in the cricketing fraternity each year. The honourees are chosen on behalf of their services to the sport along with values, determination and humility as exemplified by the Test batting legend Sir Bradman.
In the past, Sachin Tendulkar, Mark Anthony and Adam Gilchrist have been bestowed with this coveted title.
