London, July 2 (TNS): Former Pakistan player, Waqar Younis had to backtrack the controversial tweets he made about reducing the number of overs in ICC Women’s World Cup after finding himself in a soup.
The former Pakistan coach and skipper had tweeted, “@ICC What abt having 30 overs Cricket World Cup 4 Women???Like Tennis 3 sets rather then 5 #Suggestion I feel 50 overs r few 2many #WWCUP17”
The tweet took social media by storm and Waqar was widely criticized.
The argument did not sit well with Twitter and cricket journalists covering the ongoing World Cup. Twitterati did not take that lightly and found it discriminates against women.
