Shahid Afridi had yesterday quit T20 team's captaincy due to their poor performance at the World Twenty20, where they managed just one win at the Group stage. They lost to top teams including arch-rivals India, New Zealand and Australia while managed just one win against Bangladesh.

"I am resigning from my post today with a heavy heart. I have done it because of the failure of the cricket board to take my recommendations seriously after the 2015 World Cup," Waqar told reporters.

Incidentally, a day earlier, Waqar had said that he does not want to go as a 'villain'. Waqar said he had decided to resign although three months of his contract remained.

"I have done it very disappointed because the team has not moved forward since the last World Cup," he lamented.

Waqar has been engaged in a war of words since the team returned from India. The former fast bowler blasted the cricket authorities for leaking his confidential report, submitted to the PCB Chairman on the team’s performance.

Time's up for Shahid Afridi!
