Former cricketers Waqar Younis of Pakistan and Adam Gilchrist of Australia will be inducted into the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Hall of Fame next week.


Waqar and Gilchrist become the 70th and 71st male members of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame, reported PTI.


Waqar will join the exclusive club during the first Twenty20 International between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on December 11, while two days later in Perth, Gilchrist will be honoured during the tea interval of the third Ashes Test at the WACA.


They will become the first two inductees of 2013-14, while two more names will be announced later this month.
