Pakistan call up teenage leg-spinner Shahdab Khan for Windies tests

Misbah will lead Pakistan for the last time against the West Indies, the first Test match starts in Jamaica on April 21, the second in Barbados on April 30 and the third in Dominica on May 10.

Speaking to media at a press conference in Lahore, Misbah spoke of a regret at not having captained Pakistan in cricket, his entire tenure serving during their worldwide exile.

Since that drawn series with England, his side have beaten West Indies but lost a two-Test series in New Zealand and been whitewashed 3-0 by Australia.

"I believe that if I put in more hard work, I will definitely get more rewards in global cricket, " Shadab said.

The 18-year-old made his worldwide debut in last week's Twenty20 series against the West Indies and could hardly have been more impressive, capturing 10 wickets against the world champions to be named player of the series. He transformed the Pakistan test team into world-beaters, especially on slow wickets in the United Arab Emirates, which has been Pakistan's "home" venue since 2009.

He was appointed Test captain in October 2010, having played only 19 Tests at the time, and went on to become the side's most successful captain, with 24 wins in 53 matches.

Pakistan bowler Mohamed Amir and team captain Misbah-ul-Haq plot their tactics.

The urgency to have more kids comes in the wake of the life-changing armed robbery that shook the mogul to her core last October. In an episode of KUWTK that aired in November 2016, Kardashain talked to a fertility doctor about surrogacy .

He also announced his retirement from the limited overs format following Pakistan's exit in the 2015 World Cup. "Regarding when I will leave domestic cricket, I will decide it later".

Misbah also bested a 49-year-old Pakistan record at Lord's by improving upon the 76 made by Asif Iqbal in his maiden Test knock at the venue while batting at No 9 in 1967. "You don't get everything you ask for".

Misbah-ul-Haq has announced his retirement from Test cricket.

Now, Misbah has confirmed the tour of the West Indies will be his last, just hours after Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shahryar Khan let the cat out of the bag to press.

"I think Misbah's time is up", former captain turned commentator Ramiz Raja told APP at the time. "So overall, I am satisfied with my performance", he added. As captain, Misbah's batting average is now 50.55, compared to his career average of 45.84, and eight of his ten Test centuries have come as captain.

Not only did he have a remarkable 2011 when he could do nothing wrong with his bat, but he eventually ended up leading Pakistan to a remarkable 3-0 victory over No.1 ranked England in early 2012. However, Misbah's form and the team's fortunes took a beating in the series against New Zealand and Australia. "He has a wealth of knowledge on the game and we know he will make a great contribution", said Jimmy Adams, the WICB Director of Cricket.
