Waqar Younis resigned as Head Coach of Pakistan Cricket team

Apr 5, 2016 13:00 IST

Waqar Younis on 4 April 2016 resigned from the position of head coach of Pakistan Cricket team. He resigned one week after his team's exit from the 2016 World Twenty20 in the group stages.

Pakistan won only three of the eight games they played at the World Twenty20 and the Asia Cup.

The former captain said that the Pakistan Cricket Board's failure to implement his recommendations after the 2015 World Cup and the leak of his confidential report after the team's disastrous run at the World T20 played a big role in him walking away from his post three months before his contract expires.

The 44-year old took on the job for the second time in 2014, having previously held the post in 2010-11.
Earlier on 3 April 2016, Shahid Afridi stepped down as captain of Pakistan's T20 team. The 36 year old all rounder, however, said that he will be available for the One day Internationals.
