LAHORE Pakistan team manager Yawar Saeed has resigned from his post after a series of controversies during his assignment with the team. It was in his managerial stint that disharmony developed among the cricketers. Younus Khan resigned midway through the Pakistan and New Zealand series in the UAE, then reports of infighting came during the teams tour of Australia and that followed the spot-fixing fiasco in England. The teams controversial tour of England, as the reports suggested, prompted the Pakistan Cricket Board to ask him to step down. But Yawar claimed that he himself had asked the chairman to be relieved of his duties. Yawar met on Monday morning with the PCB chief who has accepted his request. The board will announce a new manager in due course, PCB media manager Nadeem Sarwar told reporters. Yawar, 75, has come in for severe criticism for his handling of team affairs on the tour of England which was marred by spot-fixing allegations.
