Pakistani skipper Misbah-ul-Haq refuses to quit ODIs

Pressurized Pakistani skipper Misbah-ul-Haq has refused calls to quit ODI cricket, insisting from now on he’d be batting with a much more positive intent in the fifty-over format after receiving the stick for batting slowly in limited over cricket.

Misbah-ul-Haq said he’s talked about this with all his players and they all agreed that overall they all needed to be better while batting and put aside concerns of losing our wicket. Misbah added they’ve all pushed him to play more shots and be more effective, adding he’s no plans of returning to play T20s for Pakistan and he has changed his batting style because he feels he can continue to play ODIs which he doesn’t need to quit now.

Misbah-ul-Haq, who’s been Pakistan’s test skipper since 2010 and ODI skipper since 2011, has come in for criticism in Pakistan for his batting and captaincy after his team were swamped 3-0 in the test series against South Africa and lost the ODI series 3-2.
