Waqar Younis had made life difficult for batsmen around the world with his lethal bowling. His phenomenal record in cricket has made him one of the greats of the game. After his cricket career he had done coaching stints with Pakistan cricket team and also some commentary stints. Off the field, he was seen as a cricket pundit on TV channels in the country.

The photo looks like from a promotional event of the 2019 Cricket World Cup which will take place in England and Wales next year.
India and Pakistan have not hosted each other for a cricket series since 2012 due to tense political relations and only play in major ICC events. They will be once again scheduled to face each other in the World Cup. The two teams will be playing each other on June 14 in Birmingham.
