West Indies focused on World Cup qualification- Holder…believes positive cricket will help team win ODI series
Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq announced his retirement from worldwide cricket and he will be playing his last series against West Indies in the upcoming three-match Test series to be held from 21 April, 2017.
April 6, 2017- Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq has announced he will retire from worldwide cricket after the forthcoming series against West Indies.
Khan told the media in Lahore that the Test series in West Indies will be the last for Misbah.
"There were many hardships in my career but for now I am focusing on the present".
FORMER West Indies batsman Bryan Davis said a lack of consistency continues to hinder the West Indies performances, following a 3-1 series loss to Pakistan in the T20 series which concluded on Sunday. The tally includes 63 wickets in 10 test matches in the United Arab Emirates, which has been Pakistan's "home" venue after foreign teams refused to tour Pakistan because of security reasons since the 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team bus.
He also briefly led his team to world number one Test rankings a year ago, despite playing no matches at home due to the prevailing insecurity in the country.
Misbah has played 72 Test matches so far, scoring 4951 runs and is now seventh on the list of Pakistan's highest Test run-getters. "He has always been good with players and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)", he said.
West Indies vs Pakistan ODI Series schedule (all matches in Guyana): 1st ODI (April 7), 2nd ODI (April 9), 3rd ODI (April 11).

In 2014, Misbah smashed a century in both innings as he led Pakistan to their first series win against Australia in 20 years.
"The best moment was when the test mace came to Pakistan after we won the series against England", Misbah said.
"I will continue to play cricket at the domestic level", he said. "You don't get everything you ask for".
Under Misbah's leadership, Pakistan also achieved the number-one Test ranking for the first time since the current rankings system was introduced in 2003.
But, Misbah's form and the team's fortunes dipped in the series against New Zealand and Australia. I enjoyed it a lot and I am very satisfied with whatever I did.
"Sarfraz is leading Pakistan in limited-over formats, it would be good if everyone supports him", Misbah said.
