Islamabad: Mohammad Hafeez has quit as captain of Pakistan's Twenty20 team after it failed to qualify for the semifinals of the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh.

Hafeez met with the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board on Thursday and says he accepted the responsibility of the team's poor performance.

 

Reigning champion West Indies eliminated Pakistan with an 84-run victory in the last group match on Tuesday as the 2007 champions were bowled out for just 82 while chasing 167.

Hafeez says he is also stepping down as vice captain of Pakistan's one-day and test teams but will continue to represent the national team in all the three formats under any captain.
