Unhappy about Shoaib Malik's sacking as captain, Javed Miandad resigned as Director-General of the Pakistan Cricket Board on Wednesday.
Sources in the PCB confirmed that Miandad resigned but it was not clear if his resignation was accepted by the Board, as PCB chairman Ejaz Butt left for Perth on Wednesday morning to attend ICC's Executive Board meeting, starting Saturday.
Miandad's resignation comes less than 24 hours after emergency meetings between PCB officials and former and current players resulted in Younis Khan taking over captaincy of the Pakistan team from Malik.
Malik was axed following Pakistan's recent ODI series defeat against Sri Lanka.
Miandad, who served as Pakistan coach thrice earlier, took over as PCB Director-General in November.
