Misbah considering retirement after England Test series

Karachi: Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq has admitted that he is considering calling time on his international career after the upcoming three-match series against England in the United Arab Emirates.

The 41-year-old veteran batsman said that the series against England could be his last, but added that he hasn’t made up his mind fully on taking retirement, the Express Tribune reported.

Misbah had earlier expressed that he wanted to retire at the end of this year after playing his last series against India. However, the escalating tension between the two nations along the border has put the proposed series in jeopardy.

He also insisted that he wanted to make his last innings a memorable one with an outstanding performance.

Commenting on the series against the Alastair Cook-led side, Misbah warned his teammates against getting over-confident and said that they would have to work very hard and play at their full potential to win series against a much-improved England side.

Pakistan will aim to maintain their winning streak this month in the UAE, where they had beaten England 3-0 in 2012.
