Karachi: After criticising Misbah-ul-Haq severely in the recent past, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar yesterday took a U-turn, saying the captain was the person who was keeping the team alive and he needs support from other batsmen.

Akhtar had called Misbah a selfish and coward captain but after Pakistan's first win in the World Cup over Zimbabwe, a mellowed down Akhtar dramatically changed his tune about the team, PCB and Misbah.

"Misbah needs the support of other players he can't carry the burden all the time," said Akhtar.
