Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan in his casual talk with Pakistan media stated the 42-year-old Misbah-Ul-Haq is expected to retire after the three-match Test series against West Indies which is scheduled from April 21 at Sabina Park.

According to the Express Tribune, it has been understood Shaharyar hinted Misbah will retire after Caribbean series as it would be his last series as a skipper and a player.

Earlier, Misbah was widely criticised by former cricketers and fans after losing the Test series in New Zealand and Australia.

During the second edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), under pressure, Misbah stated he would decide on his future after the completion of the tournament.

However, it becomes pertinent that he is focusing on the upcoming series against the West Indies to end his career on a high note.

On the other side, Pakistan’s prominent all-rounder Imad Wasim has jumped to number second position in the ICC’s rankings for Twenty20 bowlers with 780 points.

Wasim had a terrific season with the white-ball. He bagged 23 scalps in 19 games at an economy of 5.83 which is seen as the best for the shortest format of the International cricket.

The number one position is maintained by South African veteran bowler Imran Tahir with 790 points as Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is placed at number three in the T20 ranking following his decent record in the format with 764 points.

However, the 28-year-old left-arm orthodox bowler Wasim was managed to pick only two wickets in the recently concluded four-match series against West Indies.

Since making his debut in 2015, Wasim has played 19 T20Is and 18 ODIs in which he has claimed 23 wickets each for Pakistan.

Interestingly, there’s no Pakistan batsman in the top 10 list of T20 rankings. Young batting sensation Babar Azam is placed at 27th number followed by Umar Akmal at 28th position and opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad is featured at 29th place in the rankings.

Moreover, after splendid innings in the 50-over format saw Azam featured at number nine in the ODI rankings.
