The Pakistan Cricket Board is confident that Younus Khan will take back his resignation as the decision was made in the heat of the moment.

Younus on Tuesday left captaincy after being called to explain match fixing allegations on him.

"I think right now Younus is very upset and he has taken his decision because he is hurt. But I am confident that after a few days he will reconsider his decision," Wasim Bari, PCB chief operating officer, said.

"I am confident that we will be able to convince him to take back his resignation. Younus is a very emotional person as we have seen in the past. But he will be convinced to take back his resignation," Bari added.

The former Test captain also made it clear that the Chairman of the Board Ejaz Butt had not accepted Younus' resignation as yet.

This is not the first time that Younus has resigned to protest against something.

In 2006 just before the Champions Trophy in India, he had resigned to protest the behavior of former PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan but was later convinced by new Chairman Nasim Ashraf to take back his resignation.
