In this regard, Waqar Younis had requested the team management.

He sought leave so that he can spend additional time with his immediate family.

The family in Lahore also wait for him.

However, Waqar would return to Sydney, Australia, on January 17.

Moreover, Waqar will rejoin the side in time for the series against South Africa.

That will start with the first Test in Karachi on January 26.

Meanwhile, Pakistan manager Mansoor Rana said on Tuesday that they took pragmatic view of the request.

Specially, they consider Waqar has not seen his family since June.

Furthermore, they also took into account that our home series against South Africa, which follows the series against New Zealand, doesn’t finish until February 14.

Because of these fact, they have allowed him to return home early so that he can spend additional time with his wife and children.

“If he had returned to Lahore with the side after the second Test, he would have only got a week to spend with them.

For all of us, families always come first and we have in the past made similar exemptions so that our team members are able to achieve the correct work-life balance.”
