Waqar Younus steps down as head coach of Pakistan team

LAHORE: Pakistan cricket team’s head coach Waqar Younus on Monday stepped down from his post expressing discontent with Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), ARY News reported.

Talking to media, Younus said he worked honestly worked for the country and urged the people not to ignore his services.

“The PCB did injustice to me by leaking out my report,” he lamented, maintaining that whatever he said in the past two week was all true.

Expressing discontent over present cricketing scenario, Waqar Younus said, “It is time to leave”.

Sources said that the head coach also gave up his three months’ salary and donated it to a charity.

Amid criticism over Pakistan’s disappointing performance in the Asia Cup and ICC World T20, the head coach had submitted his report to the PCB highlighting some factors behind terrible showing.

The report was leaked to media that caused a stir and fumed Younus.

Besides urging PM Nawaz Sharif, who happens to be the patron in-chief of the PCB, to take notice of the situation, he also approached Federal Minister Riaz Hussain Pirzada and apprised him of reasons for the side’s poor showing in the World T20 and loopholes in the cricket setup.

Waqar had also said that leaking of his report was a ‘big crime’ and those found responsible should be punished.

Disappointed with the state of affairs, the head coach eventually resigned after being given cold shoulder by the PCB.
