Australia former openers Mathew Hayden and Justin Langer were honoured in last year’s Gala dinner
The Bradman Museum will honour the former Pakistan pacer Waqar Younis at the 13th annual Bradman Gala Dinner, which will be held on November 13, 2019 at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).
According to the website bradman.com.au, the dinner will celebrate the glorious cricket career of the pace bowling legend.
“This year we are honouring Mr Waqar Younis, one of Pakistan’s greatest ever fast bowlers. As always, many past and current Test players should be in attendance,” stated the website.
Australia former openers Mathew Hayden and Justin Langer were inducted as the Honourees in the last year’s Gala dinner.
Waqar was also inducted in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket Hall of Fame in 2013 before the start of the first Twenty20 International (T20I) between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai Sports City.
The pace-bowling legend, also called the ‘Burewala Express’, claimed 373 wickets from 87 Tests and 416 scalps from 262 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) while representing Pakistan.
