No hidden stories behind Waqar resignation: PCB


The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has shunned all the speculations that resignation of Waqar Younis, the coach of national team is due to some differences with PCB officials or selection committee.
PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmad said: “Waqar contacted the board a few days back and requested to be relieved from national duty on his personal reasons including the reasons pertaining to his health. Although it was a tough decision for the board to make yet but we understand his position. His services for Pakistan both as a player and as the coach is enormous. We wanted him to continue with the rebuilding of the team but then he had to leave. Everyone should respect his personal priorities. The PCB wished him all the best in his future endeavors.”
Waqar Younis said: “It is unfortunate that these stories appeared despite the fact that I presented myself to media and talked in detail on the reasons of my resignation. Working with Pakistan team is an honour and I enjoyed being part of it. “When you work as a team there can be a difference of opinion but that happens anywhere. I want to reiterate that my resignation is purely on my personal reasons and all other suggestions are totally unfounded. I thank the PCB for their support and understanding. I will be available again to serve Paksitan as soon as I settle my personal problems,” Waqar added.
