Kolkata: Roped in to train upcoming pacers from West Bengal, Pakistani legend Waqar Younis said Saturday it's the attitude rather than the pitch that makes a fast bowler.

"In this part of the world you don't get fast tracks but we, especially Pakistan, have been producing some great pacers over the years. So it's not about the pitch, rather the attitude that makes a pacer," said Waqar during the unveiling of a coaching initiative by the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB).

"It's the attitude, the mindset which is the key and nothing else. Besides that, you also need the hunger to excel, to develop and to go ahead."
