Misbah ‘most likely’ to face West Indies

first_imgMISBAH-ul-Haq has revealed that he is “most likely” to prolong his Pakistan career and play in the Test series against West Indies.The veteran Pakistan Test captain stated late in January that he plans to make a decision on his future within a month after he came in for criticism following a poor tour of Australia.Misbah was out of sorts with the bat against Steve Smith’s side, scoring just 76 runs across the three Tests.But Misbah said he would not make a call on whether to play on at international level before leading Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League [PSL].And the 42-year-old appears to have made his mind up ahead of a three-match Test series in the Caribbean – which gets under way on April 22.He told ESPNcricinfo: “It was tough on me recently with my form but now overall everything is going well so far [in the PSL],“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 [and play cricket] then I have to go with form and confidence otherwise there was no point of going.”last_img read more
