Misbah decides to end his PSL career
Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who retired from International cricket last year has now decided to end his career in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) too.
Misbah played for Islamabad United in all three seasons and he also led the side in the first season where they ended up becoming the champions of the tournament.
Islamabad United released a statement on Wednesday announcing that Misbah has decided to call it a time on his PSL career.
“Islamabad United has always greatly valued Misbah as a player, leader and a superb team player. As he transitions into his non-playing phase, we believe he can add a lot of value to Islamabad United as well as to Pakistan. The franchise continues to discuss with him avenues which could provide him a platform to pursue his next phase. These discussions continue and deserve the confidentiality which a senior player like him deserves.”
The most successful Test captain of Pakistan now wants to shift focus on developing the cricket of Pakistan as he has been named in PCB’s new cricket committee.
Meanwhile, Islamabad have also appointed Saeed Ajmal as the assistant coach after Tauseef Ahmed resigned from that position.
