Lahore, Aug.13 (ANI): Accepting responsibility for humiliating defeats both in the Test and One-Day series in Sri Lanka, Pakistan captain Younis Khan has said he would not succumb to pressure to resign.
"I accept the responsibility of defeat, but will not apologise to anyone nor will I resign as captain because it's part of the game to lose and win," Khan said.
Khan, 31, lambasted critics and former Pakistani cricketers who have launched a relentless attack on him for team's dismal performance during the Lanka series.
"I am trying my level best to lead the team and achieve the best results but some people want me to relinquish the captaincy, which I won't. Am I not a good captain, or do I lack leadership qualities?" he said.
He blamed the inconsistent performance by the top batting order for the failure.
Rejecting match-fixing allegations, Khan said there were no differences between the players in the team.
He said such 'baseless' allegation were affecting the team's performance.
"Baseless allegations are affecting the team's performances. No one should doubt my integrity. I can never resort to any wrongdoing," The Daily Times quoted Khan, as saying. (ANI)
