Ex- Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq has backed the retention Misbah-ul-Haq as captain until the World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand. Inzamam-ul-Haq, who played 120 Tests and 378 ODIs, said that the combination of Misbah-ul-Haq and new head coach, Waqar Younis would work nicely for the national team.
“The PCB has done the right thing by bringing back Waqar and also making it clear that Misbah will be captain for the next World Cup. These are steps in the right direction,” Inzamam-ul-Haq who himself captained the country from 2003 to 2007 said. Pakistan cricket has a volatile history of rapidly changing captains and coaches as Waqar Younis also left his head coach spot in 2011 due to personal and health problems although it was well known he had issues with the PCB.
Misbah-ul-Haq, 40, has after Abdul Hafeez Kardar, Mushtaq Muhammad, Imran Khan and Inzamam-ul-Haq also led the country for the longest period of time having been hired Test skipper since late 2010.
