A similar kind of tweet was liked from Waqar's Twitter account two years ago, but the 48-year-old refrained from clarifying about it then.

Waqar Younis said that he has made a decision to distance himself from social media because his Twitter account was hacked and a porn clip was liked from it.

Stating that his account was hacked Waqar offered his apology and made a decision to quit social media as this was not the first time such an incident happened with him.

The move, which the bowling coach said was not the first time, greatly upset him and his family.

Waqar Younis said that the hacker will not stop from his activities so he has himself taken the decision of stopping the use of social media instead as his family members are very dear to him. The veteran said that he used to think social media as a medium for staying in touch with the fans.

On Thursday night, an image went viral where Waqar Younis liked an obscene video on Twitter.

'Today I have to say with great regret that when I woke up this morning, someone hacked my Twitter account and liked grossly inferior videos from my account. "It is an extremely shameful, saddening, and agonizing thing for me and as well as for my family", he said in his video message. You will not see me on social media after today. I'm sorry if anyone is hurt by this, ' Waqar concluded.

Waqar Younis, the former Pakistan fast bowler, was a disgusted lot recently. I do not think this man is going to stop, so I have chose to quit social media after today.
