Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that it has not decided the player who will replace the test-skipper Misbah-ul-Haq as his retirement is approaching.
Pakistani Test captain, Misbah-ul-Haq is expected to say good-bye to the cricket as his retirement is nearing. After the series with New-Zealand and Australia, Misbah is likely to retire, but PCB has not decided yet his successor.
Chairman PCB Shehreyar Khan has said, “We have not decided who will lead the Test side, once Misbah steps down”. There are chances that Misbah would continue to lead the team on the international level if he meets the condition of good performance.
“If the upcoming tours in Australia and New Zealand go well then we can even ask Misbah to continue leading the side for a while,” said the Shehrayar Khan.
Even if senior players like Misbah and Younis continue to play for the team, then need for preparing the young players for future remains still there and one has to look for the replacement in anticipation.
Shehreyar Khan also told that Muhammad Hafeez couldn’t represent Pakistan in International Cricket due to his illegal bowling action. Still, the board had decided to give him a chance on his request to test his action in Loughborough, Cardiff, by considering his seniority and experience.
While exclusively talking to a local newspaper, Shehreyar Khan also informed that PSL (Pakistan Super League) would become a separate entity and free to govern itself but it would have to follow the rules made by PCB. The board itself decided to give freedom to PSL.
