Misbah to call it a day

Misbah to call it a day”

"What can one say?"

ACB said the Afghan team is for the first time facing the Champions of the T20 Internationals, expressing hopes that the Afghan team would put on display a good performance during the One Day Internationals against the host.

Tensions between India and Pakistan have also kept the great rivals apart in the five-day game since 2007, leaving Misbah feeling somewhat unfulfilled.

The 42-year-old Misbah has been Pakistan's most successful test captain but pressure mounted on him after Pakistan lost their past six matches, including a 3-0 defeat in Australia and a 2-0 rout in New Zealand.

Misbah, howevber said that he will continue to play cricket at domestic level and will continue his cricket activities for a while.

Shadab Khan, who took 10 wickets in last week's T20 series, added to 16-man squad.

Excellent seam bowling by Pakistan limited the West Indies to 124 for eight batting first and set the stage for the batsmen's romp to victory to complete a 3-1 series triumph and claim a potentially significant psychological advantage ahead of the three-match one-day worldwide series in Guyana starting on Friday. "Instead of criticising personalities, it's better if we start talking positively about Pakistan cricket. I have been thinking about it for a while now", he said.

Seven of the players that made the trip to Australia over the Christmas/New Year's period have been side-lined for one reason or the other, earning familiar face Ahmed Shehzad a recall, along with fellow batsman Shan Masood. In August a year ago, Pakistan rose to the No. 1 Test ranking for the first time after drawing the series against England, and Misbah rated this as his best moment.

Following Misbah's last outing with Pakistan, opening batsman Azhar Ali is expected to take over as new Test skipper. Law also confirmed that the selectors had allowed Brathwaite to play in the IPL, which he personally believed was "a good thing".

"Sarfraz is already doing captaincy in two formats and we should support him", Misbah said.

"I've seen many ups and downs during my career", he said.

"[My] favourite moment was winning the Lord's and Oval Tests, including the hundred I made at Lord's".

Misbah, who retired from ODIs and T20Is after the 2015 World Cup, has played 72 Test matches so far, scoring 4951 runs and is now seventh on the list of Pakistan's highest Test run-getters. He never scored a century in ODIs.

"He has given a lot to Pakistan cricket", Khan said, echoing a flood of accolades on social media, where #MISBAH was trending.

Misbah has led Pakistan with a steely determination and unflappable temperament since 2010 when he was appointed in the wake of the 2010 spot-fixing scandal. We're delighted he has agreed to come and work with our players.
