"My advice to the team is being blamed for the defeat [against India], bemused Khan told media.

Team manager Intikhab Alam in a report, parts of which were leaked, said that Khan s advice was not helpful as he was not "familiar with the demands and tactics employed in this condensed, post-modern format of the game."

Reacting to the reports, Khan took a swipe at Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan and another senior official Najam Sethi, demanding their resignation.
