Misbah-ul-Haq to retire from internationals after West Indies tour

Pakistan thrash WI to win T20I series

West Indies and Pakistan play three Tests during the upcoming series including the opening match, the 50th to be staged at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica, along with contests at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados and Windsor Park in Roseau, Dominica.

Speaking at a press conference, Misbah said that the series against West Indies will be his last and that he would continue to play domestic cricket.

Also back in action is the exciting young wicketkeeper/batsman Shai Hope, who has been in the runs since November a year ago when the West Indies toured Zimbabwe.

"There were many hardships in my career but for now I am focusing on the present".

"The last six Tests do not show our capabilities, Pakistan have a good opportunity to come back on the winning track in the series against West Indies", the skipper stressed.

After Pakistan slipped to a 3-0 series defeat in Australia, there were speculations that Misbah would hang up his boots, but the 42-year-old chose to play the three-match Test rubber against West Indies.

Misbah has the record of being Pakistan's skipper in most Test matches.

The top order batsman also played 162 One-day internationals and 39 Twenty20 internationals before retiring from the limited-over formats after the 2015 ODI World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

West Indies vs Pakistan ODI Series schedule (all matches in Guyana): 1st ODI (April 7), 2nd ODI (April 9), 3rd ODI (April 11).

He took over the captaincy in 2010, reshaping the country's reputation and squad after the spot fixing scandal in England that threatened to tear Pakistan cricket apart. He added that he will take a decision on when to quit playing cricket at the domestic level.

"I think Misbah's time is up", former captain turned commentator Ramiz Raja told APP at the time.

"I felt disappointed with some bad performances recently, but we shouldn't giving up hope and efforts towards the good".

"I am announcing my retirement from global cricket. You don't get everything you ask for", he said.

Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq said that the squad has been selected after consulting head coach Mickey Arthur and captain Misbah ul Haq.

This will also be the final series before the annual update is carried out on May 1 to ensure the table continues to reflect teams' recent form with older results being discarded.

"Shadab could learn, too, by staying with Yasir, like I learnt from Qadir bhai (brother) and then Danish (Kaneria) learnt from me when I was his senior". "Other cricket board have all sent us letters praising the team's behavior and his leadership", Khan said.
