Former Pakistan player and coach Waqar Younis has stepped down as team’s coach three months before his contract ended.
Afridi had also announced his retirement during the World T20 Event, but decided to reconsider it and just step down as captain for now.
Younis on the other hand took his decision to step down after a meeting with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials on April 3, 2016.
Further, on both the occasions the team failed to make it past the first round and have not won a series in any format since October 2015.
On the positive side, Pakistan is currently ranked a respectable fourth in ICC Tests ranking, but are on the eighth and seventh spot in ICC ODI and T20 rankings.
Recently, the report that Younis written about the team’s performance in the World T20 Championship had leaked.
Soon after Younis made his announcement, PCB sent out an statement announcing that among several other measures, the board would soon start looking for a new coach and that they would be assisted by a panel comprising of Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja.
