Pakistan chief selector Iqbal Qasim has resigned a day after choosing the national team for the tour of West Indies.

Pakistan Cricket Board acting chairman Najam Sethi says in a statement on Thursday that Qasim asked to be relieved after his extended contract expired on Wednesday.

Qasim, a former test left-arm spinner, wanted to dedicate more time to "domestic issues."

Qasim's selected teams won for Pakistan the Asia Cup, a one-day series against India, and Twenty20 series against Australia and South Africa.

The list of losses includes test series defeats against Sri Lanka and South Africa; defeats in ODI series against Sri Lanka, Australia and South Africa; defeat in the semifinals of the World Twenty20 and all three group matches in the Champions Trophy last month.
