LAHORE: Pakistan head coach Waqar Younis has resigned from the position three month before his contract due. The decision came a day after Shahid Khan Afridi stepped down from Pakistan team captaincy.
After meeting with the Pakistan Cricket Board(PCB) officials, Younis announced his resignation with a heavy heart while talking to the media outside Gaddafi Stadium.
He said that he will not stop fighting for the betterment of Pakistan cricket. PCB needs to make eminent amendments to bring modern cricket to Pakistan.
“It’s time to go,” Waqar said. “With disappointment and pain I would like to inform that I decide to resign as the Pakistan coach. In last 19 months of my job I was completely honest and didn’t leave any stone unturned to help the team achieve the best but unfortunately we couldn’t get the results.
“It was slightly unfair by the board the way the whole case had been handled as my report was leaked and none of the board officials tried to talk about all this. But in all this, I do not want all of you, including ex-cricketers, to forget my services to Pakistan cricket.”
