Misbah to sign off from worldwide cricket following Test series against Pakistan

Pakistan thrash WI to win T20I series

Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq is planning to quit worldwide cricket after the three-Test series in the West Indies beginning later this month, he announced on Thursday.

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.

"My cricket journey was very good", said Misbah.

West Indies has dropped Kraigg Brathwaite for their one-day global series against Pakistan, while his IPL-bound namesake Carlos is also absent. "The most important aspect though is that all the players really embraced the culture we are trying to create and worked extremely hard in pushing and challenging themselves to get better, skill wise as well as physically, and I think that showed in our general performance especially in the fielding department", Arthur added.

The 43-year-old, who has been captain of the Pakistan Test team since 2010, has said that the upcoming three-Test series against the West Indies will be his final assignment. In 2015, Shadab was part of the Pakistan Under-17 team which played against England in the United Arab Emirates.

He is also Pakistan's most successful test captain, having led the side to 24 wins in 53 matches.

"I had a dream of winning the World Cup for Pakistan, but then I also had a dream of captain the team in Pakistan".

Combined with the nose cone, that's about 84 percent in savings of the original costs of the launch (fuel costs notwithstanding). He added that his team were also working on recovering the second "booster" stage, which now burns up in the atmosphere.

Misbah 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 retired from limited overs cricket after the ICC ODI World Cup in 2015. However, there was a sigh of relief when he said that he was yet to hang his boots and will continue playing at domestic level. However, the curtains will be down after the three-Test series against West Indies in their own den, starting April 21.

He recalled that the best time of his career was when the Pakistan team became number one in the Test rankings. "You don't get everything you ask for".

"He knows whether he has the form, fitness and hunger for cricket to carry on or step down", Misbah said in a recent interview.

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.

Holder and his men, along with their Pakistani opponents, arrived in Guyana at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Monday afternoon ahead of their three matches to be played in Guyana.

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