Pakistan Test skipper Misbah-ul-Haq on Thursday called curtains on his global career, announcing that the upcoming three-match series against West Indies beginning April 22 in Barbados will be his last.

"I was under no pressure from anyone", he added. "There were many hardships in my career but for now I am focusing on the present situation", he said Thursday. He transformed the Pakistan test team into world-beaters, especially on slow wickets in the United Arab Emirates, which has been Pakistan's "home" venue since 2009.

Misbah-ul-Haq will lead Pakistan in the Tests, which follow the three-match one-day series starting in Guyana on Friday. "I also believe that there should be only one captain", the Pakistan Test skipper said.

Misbah announces retirement at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium. "I am really happy with how the [T20] series panned out for Pakistan and even more happy that the younger players did so well and won the games for us", the Dawn quoted Arthur as saying.

The 42-year-old has been leading the Test side since 2010, taking over the reins in the aftermath of the spot-fixing scandal in England.

Misbah, howevber said that he will continue to play cricket at domestic level and will continue his cricket activities for a while. You get disappointed a bit with your failures but you don't give up.

"I am satisfied", he said. "Overall maybe Pakistan doesn't get much support, but we all, including me, make sure we as a country are behind our team and support our players so that morally they should go and fight in global matches". "I wish Misbah scores 100 in every match of the series against West Indies", he said and hoped that Misbah retires on a high note.

"He is gold to Pakistan cricket", Arthur said of Shadab, who has also been named in both ODI and Test squad against West Indies.

Pakistan then secured a 2-2 draw against England and were crowned the new world number one in Tests.

With 10 centuries and 36 half-centuries under his belt, Misbah has overtaken current chairman of selectors Inzamam-ul-Haq's seven, as well as Imran Khan and Javed Miandad's records - each of whom have five apiece.

Hasan Ali and Rumman Raees, replacing fellow left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir from the previous match, displayed admirable accuracy and discipline, combining for three important wickets and also delivering three maiden overs. "Other cricket board have all sent us letters praising the team's behavior and his leadership", Khan said.
