Misbah-ul-Haq mulls retirement after England series

Lahore: Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq said yesterday he was mulling retirement after the upcoming Pakistan-England series, saying he hoped to leave the game on a high. The 41-year-old said the series against England “could be my last”. “I haven’t taken a final decision,” Misbah told media on the sidelines of a training camp here, adding that he was considering his options. Misbah retired from Twenty20 in 2012 and left the ODI game after Pakistan’s quarter-final finish in the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in March.

He said he wanted to leave Test cricket with good memories. “People remember your final performance,” he said. The unassuming middle-order batsman will be remembered for his leadership in the aftermath of the 2010 spot fixing scandal which resulted in five-year bans for Salman Butt, Mohd Asif and Mohd Amir.

Last month Misbah had announced he will retire after an upcoming series against India, but the December-January contest is in serious doubt.
