Pakistan’s Mohammad Hafeez has stepped down as the team’s Twenty20 captain after their early exit from the World T20 tournament in Bangladesh.

All rounder Hafeez announced he was stepping down as the Twenty20 captain and also as vice-captain of the test and one-day sides in Lahore on Thursday after a meeting with Pakistan Cricket Board chairman, Najam Sethi.

Speaking of his decision, Mohammad Hafeez said,

[quote]I take responsibility for Pakistan team performance. I think we played good cricket and we played bad cricket. I take the responsibility for every good and bad. We had a thorough discussion with Pakistan Cricket Board chief Najam Sethi and I have decided to step down as captain. I will be available as a player for Pakistan Cricket Board and Pakistan team. I will accept the role for all formats.[/quote]

Asked if he had also contemplated stepping down as head coach, former test captain Moin Khan said his contract with the board was for two tournaments and it was over now.
