Pakistan’s head coach Waqar Younis resigned on Monday weeks after his team’s humiliating exit from the World Twenty20 in the group stages.
“I am resigning from my post today with a heavy heart,” a dejected Waqar said while addressing reporters outside the Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
The former captain said the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) 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 cricket board’s failure to work on my recommendations after the 2015 World Cup is the major reason for my disappointment.”
The 44-year-old took on the job for the second time in 2014, having previously held the post in 2010-11.
