Sunrisers pace spearhead Dale Steyn wants to pick the brain of former Pakistan skipper Waqar Younis, who is a bowling consultant with the Hyderabad franchise.

The top-rated fast bowler said Waqar’s presence is a big boon for Sunrisers and the youngsters will benefit a lot from the Pakistani. Waqar, known for his reverse swing and toe crushers, has 789 international wickets during an international career that spanned over 14 years.

“He (Waqar) is a fantastic bowler. I am looking forward to actually spending a bit of time with him. He hasn’t been with us for the last couple of days but certainly throughout the IPL I will pick his brain and see what I can get off from him.

I know that the youngsters in the side will definitely benefit from him and so will I,” Steyn was quoted as saying by www.iplt20.com.
