Misbah likely to stay ODI captain

Karachi: Misbah-ul Haq does not seem to be in danger of losing the captaincy of the one-day team before the 2015 World Cup despite speculations about experienced allrounder, Shahid Afridi, being a strong contender for this job.

According to sources in the Pakistan Cricket Board, all rumours pertaining to the one-day team captaincy were unfounded. “There is no plan to change Misbah as captain of the Test or ODI side as he has led the players well in both formats and is now an experienced campaigner.

“And importantly, his own individual performances have been exemplary and consistent,” one source said.

The source added that PCB chairman Najam Sethi had a good understanding with former captain Moin Khan and would take his feedback on who should be the new T20 captain.        (PTI)
