I will retire after India series- Misbah-ul-Haq

LAHORE: Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq has revealed he will retire after taking on traditional rivals India for one last time.

The 41-year-old Misbah, who retired from ODIs after the 2015 World Cup, remained optimistic about a possible showdown against India after officials from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) held talks for a potential series later this year.

“I know very well that there is not much cricket left in me. Yes, I want to play a few more Test matches as I look forward to life beyond cricket,” Misbah told PTI in an interview.

 “If the series against India happens, I want to play that series and probably retire from international cricket. So the India series can be my last one,” he added.

Misbah’s comments come just days after he expressed the desire to play a Test in Pakistan before bringing down the curtains on his career.
