We have not accepted Younus Khan's resignation: Butt

PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt today said the Board has not accepted Younus Khan's resignation from the post of skipper and the matter will not be discussed in the governing council, rather he will discuss it personally with the 'hurt' player.

Butt told PTI that he would meet Younus in the next two or three days to have a detailed talk with him.
"Younus is a man of integrity and he is very hurt by the remarks credited to the NA body Chairman. But even today when he gave me his resignation I didn''t accept it and I told him thrice I am not accepting it because I see it as an emotional decision from him," he said.

Butt made it clear that it was a wrong impression that he had said that Younus' resignation would be discussed at the governing council meeting on October 19. "I am the supreme authority in the Board and I appoint the captain.

So I will sort out this issue myself. I will meet Younus and will hopefully we will convince him to take back his resignation," he said.

Butt also felt that the Jamshed Dasti, Chairman of the National Assembly standing committee on sport, adopted the wrong method to express concerns over match-fixing reports.

"This body is a representative body of the government and has every right to question us if they feel something is wrong in Pakistan cricket.

But I think the method they adopted to raise this issue was not right. It hurt players' integrity.
"He said the Chairman and members of the NA body had later clarified at the hearing that they had no intention of hurting anyone and had trust in Younus and the team.
