Lahore: Pakistan’s under-fire skipper Misbah-ul Haq has no intention to retire from one-day Internationals or step down from the captaincy post despite his side’s ODI series loss to Australia in the UAE.
“No doubt we struggled with our batting and failed to take command on the field… But we tried to give the best in the matches,” Misbah told reporters after returning home from Dubai.
“I enjoy the honour of leading Pakistan in ODIs and Tests and take pride in my performances. It is disappointing we lost to Australia but we need to move on and learn from mistakes. Definitely, we need improvements in different areas as we keep repeating same mistakes,” he said.
Soon after Pakistan lost the final match and the series, several former players and critics have called for Misbah to retire from ODIs.
Under the 38-year old Misbah, Pakistan suffered their second successive series loss after the Asia Cup.
