Miandad resigns from PCB Director Generals postJanuary 28th, 2009 - 4:47 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Jan 28 (ANI): The Director General of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Javed Miandad, resigned with immediate effect on Wednesday.
Miandads resignation comes less than 24 hours after emergency meetings with officials, former and current players resulted in Younis Khan taking over the Pakistan captaincy from Shoaib Malik.
The PCB had pressed the panic button after Pakistans humiliating defeat in the last ODI against Sri Lanka and Miandads resignation is further indication of the tension simmering in the countrys cricket establishment.
Miandad was appointed in November 2008. At that time it was not a surprise as his name had been linked to several roles in the board, and he had also met Ijaz Butt, the chairman of the PCB. (ANI)
