Lahore: Pakistani T20 captain  Mohammad Hafeez has resigned from the captaincy, accepting responsibility for the dismal performance of the team in the World T20, Aaj News reported.

While talking to the media, Hafeez said, ‘After Pakistan failed to make the World T20 semi-finals with a heavy defeat to West Indies, I was asked pretty direct questions’. ‘Different questions were raised on my captaincy as well, that’s why I have reached to this decision of resignation’, he added.

It is pertinent to know that Hafeez was asked if he was considering resigning as T20 captain and if he was the No. 3 batsman the side needed. He was asked why Kamran Akmal and Shoaib Malik were persevered with. He was asked if the Pakistan team management was good enough. In reply, Hafeez apologized to the people of Pakistan for his team’s unsuccessful campaign and said that the entire team was collectively responsible.
