Misbah likely to play West Indies series

Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan Test skipper, has said he is “in all likelihood” to be on the visit to West Indies in March with the PCB open to his playing another arrangement before accepting an approach his retirement.

Misbah has been under monstrous examination having driven the group to six progressive thrashings in Test cricket, in spite of the fact that it was under him that Pakistan were positioned No. 1 in the arrangement a year ago.

A slump in his batting form and his ever-increasing age added to the show that achieved its crest after the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne a year ago when Misbah confessed to being uncertain about his future as a cricketer. He has since had room schedule-wise to reassess and is in a superior mood.

The PCB along with chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq are setting up arrangements for a smooth move by which Pakistan can proceed onward from the senior players like Misbah and Younis Khan. Late gatherings between the load up and the choice board have shown their inclination for having one skipper for all configurations however Shaharyar Khan, who has the established all right boss to select the chief, is glad to leave the call with Misbah himself.

“It was tough on me recently with my form but now overall everything is going well so far. I am spending time in middle, hitting the ball pretty well. Played practice matches before the PSL started and had sessions of range hitting so getting confidence with every passing game.

I am also enjoying the game so it’s most likely that I am going to the West Indies. I always believed if had to go then I have to go with form and confidence otherwise there was no point of going.”
