Pakistan's head coach Waqar Younis resigned on Monday following his team's humiliating exit from the World Twenty20 tournament at the group stage.

The 2009 champions had been widely blasted by fans following a lacklustre performance with just one victory against low-ranked Bangladesh and big losses to India, New Zealand and Australia.

"I am resigning from my post today with a heavy heart," he told reporters in Lahore.
