LAHORE - Former Pakistan batting maestro Javed Miandad resigned as director general of the PCB on Wednesday complaining he was being restricted to just domestic cricket affairs. Talking to journalists here at the Gaddafi Stadium after informing the board officials, Miandad said that he cannot accept undue interference in his matters while discharging his duties nor can he take any dictation in this regard. "I have played cricket since I was a child and I know it well enough," he said. He said: "I was asked to look after all cricketing matters of the board but I felt that I was being restricted to domestic cricket only." Miandad further said that he wanted to serve the country but unfortunately he is not being given the opportunity. However, he said that President Asif Ali Zardari placed him in the governing board of the PCB and he would continue to work as its member. The PCB especially created the post of director general to take advantage of the experience the legendary batsman. This was Miandad's fourth tenure with the board and his earlier three stints were as coach of the team but this time round he was director general for about two months. "I was not clear of my working role and wanted to serve the game in whole," he said. "I unveiled a plan for improvement of domestic cricket and hopefully it will play wonders with Pakistan cricket. If domestic structure is not strong then cricket cant not flourish," he added. Miandad was also unhappy over the change of captaincy but said that appointing Younis Khan in place of Shoaib Malik did not irk him. However, his resignation came a day after Younis replaced Malik. The PCB chairman, who has been in Perth to attend the ICC meeting has been informed about the resignation. But he (the chairman) reported to have said that he heard from television reports. Though Wasim Bari, the director of HR and administration, refused to comment, another board official said that Miandad wasn't happy with the contract and neither its financial rewards. "He didn't like what he had been offered," the official was quoted by a website. "The scope of the role was that he look after domestic cricket, infrastructure growth and work with the games director at the National Cricket Academy and be based in Karachi. He wanted more. Monetarily he also felt he deserved more given his stature as a Test cricketer."
