PCB may rope in Misbah for directorial role post retirement, hints Shaharyar

Sports Round Up

Pakistan Test captain Misbahul Haq on Thursday announced his retirement from the worldwide cricket.

While talking to the media in Lahore, the 82-year-old said the board will give proper farewell to Misbah for his achievements after the West Indies tour. "There were many hardships in my career but for now I am focusing on the present situation", he said Thursday.

Ahmed said non-sub-continental teams do struggle against leg-spinners and Pakistan should take advantage of it in the upcoming one-day and test series against the West Indies.

The ICC statement said the 42-year-old was adjudged the victor for inspiring Pakistani players to play the game in its true spirit, at the same time lifting the Pakistan cricket team from number-four to number-one on the ICC Test Team Rankings. "I also believe that there should be only one captain", the Pakistan Test skipper said.

The 42-year-old batsman, who was named one of Wisden's five Cricketers of the Year on Wednesday, has led his side in 53 Tests since taking over in 2010.

Since his 2001 test debut in New Zealand, Misbah has gone on to make 4951 runs from 72 matches at a 45-plus average.

He also announced his retirement from the limited overs format following Pakistan's exit in the 2015 World Cup.

Thompson hit with four-shot penalty in final round
She incurred a two-shot penalty for the breach and another two-shot penalty for returning an incorrect scorecard. Thompson was visibly shaken when the ruling dropped her from 16 under to 12 under and one shot off the lead.

He baffled the Windies batsmen with his guile and spin in the T20 series, having caught the eye of the senior national selectors when he played in the Pakistan Super League for defending champions Islamabad United.

West Indies vs Pakistan ODI Series schedule (all matches in Guyana): 1st ODI (April 7), 2nd ODI (April 9), 3rd ODI (April 11). "So overall, I am satisfied with my performance", he added.

The former West Indies batsman says West Indies T20 captain Carlos Brathwaite and Jason Holder are not global bowlers, saying Holder had promise earlier in his career but when he was given the job as ODI and Test captain it affected his development.

Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said the 16-member squad was selected "keeping in mind the conditions in the West Indies and the recent performances of players" in the domestic and global season. "You don't get everything you ask for".

"I think I performed a lot better in this series than I have in the recent past but it doesn't mean that all of a sudden I am a world beater", he stressed.

He registered 10 test series wins as a captain, which is the most by an Asian skipper. "I just hope the players now learn their lesson".
