Shadab Khan, Pakistan's Debutant Who Finished Man of the Series

West Indies without both Brathwaites for Pakistan ODIs

Pakistan Test captain Misbahul Haq on Thursday announced his retirement from the global cricket.

Misbah said politics had put a stop to Indo-Pak bilateral ties since 2007 but after he became captain in late 2010 he remained optimistic he would get a chance to captain in a test series against the arch-rivals.

Speaking at a press conference at the Gaddafi Stadium, Misbah said he would continue to play domestic cricket.

West Indies head coach Stuart Law says the regional side will have to raise their game and play "smarter" cricket if they are to get the better of Pakistan in the three-match one-day series starting Friday.

Then, Misbah had led Pakistan to world number one in the ICC Test Rankings for the first time in their history with a drawn series in England.

Misbah said receiving the Test mace when Pakistan became the number one Test team in the world a year ago remains among the best memories of his career.

The final Test begins on May 10 in Dominica.

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

Pakistan are presently on a six-Test losing streak but are expected to be too strong for West Indies once the Test series commences on April 22.

While Misbah played only one Test on the New Zealand tour, scoring 44, in Australia he managed 76 in three Tests at an average of 12.66. "I used to bowl wide of the crease and later I was taught by Dean Jones which has benefited me a lot", he said.

Pakistan bounced back from a defeat in the third Twenty20 worldwide to complete a seven-wicket win over the West Indies in the fourth game to take the series 3-1.

"I hope to end my career on a good note", wishes the 42-year-old skipper.

"We will do several other things as Misbah's contributions for Pakistan cricket are tremendous". "You don't get everything you ask for".

In 2014, Misbah smashed a century in both innings as he led Pakistan to their first series win against Australia in 20 years.

Pakistan continued to surge in Tests and in 2016, they secured a 2-2 draw against England and they were crowned the new World No.1 in Tests.

"Sarfraz is leading Pakistan in limited-over formats, it would be good if everyone supports him", Misbah said.

Ahmed Shehzad made a welcome return to form in guiding Pakistan to a series-clinching seven-wicket victory over the West Indies in the fourth and final match of their T20 worldwide series at the Queen's Park Oval on Sunday.
