Kamran Akmal could lead Pakistan in the Twenty20 game against Australia
Pakistan chief of selectors Iqbal Qasim has resigned from his post following a disastrous tour of Australia.
The team lost all three Tests and the five one-day matches and had Shahid Afridi banned for biting the ball.
"After the clean sweep in the Test and one-day series, I don't think it is my moral duty to remain the chief selector," he said.
Whoever takes the chief of selectors role will be the fourth incumbent in the past 12 months.
Qasim, who played in 50 Tests between 1976 and 1988, added: "I am very disappointed, like millions of Pakistanis. As I am responsible for the selection of the team, I quit.
"The selection committee, which I headed, did its best to select the best possible teams, but they did not live up to the expectations of the fans who are badly hurt."
