Unhappy over Shoaib Malik's unceremonious sacking and disagreement as regards his contract, Javed Miandad resigned as Director-General of the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Miandad said that he no longer wanted to be mere symbolic director general and he was not able to discharge his duties as per his job responsibilities - Sources in the PCB have confirmed that Miandad has resigned but it was not clear if his resignation has been accepted by the Board as PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt is in Perth to attend ICC's Executive Board Meeting.

Miandad's resignation comes less than 24 hours after emergency meetings with PCB officials and former and current players resulted in Younis Khan taking over the Pakistan captaincy from Malik.

Malik's ouster came after Pakistan's recent ODI series defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka. Miandad, who served as Pakistan coach thrice in the past, took over the position of PCB Director-General in November last year.

What would you say on this important development – would his resignation have any adverse effect on Pakistani cricket? And are there any grey areas in the affairs of PCB which need to be addressed so that the future of Pakistan cricket be saved?
