I would have had Misbah-ul-Haq as captain in ICC World Twenty20: Imran Khan

New Delhi: Former Pakistani skipper Imran Khan is of the opinion that Pakitan should have one captain for all three formats.

Speaking to PTI, Imran, who led Pakistan to their only World Cup crown in 1992, made it clear that he was in favour of having one skipper for all formats and given a choice, Misbah should have led Pakistani team in ICC World Twenty20, according to him.

"If I had been there I would have had Misbah-ul-Haq as captain in the recent World T20," he added.

Asked if he was saying he would not have had Shahid Afridi as the national T20 captain, Imran said for the sake of continuity, team building and planning there should be one captain.

Imran also took potshots at Najam Sethi and blamed him for damaging the state of cricket affairs in the country.

"Pakistan cricket was damaged because a person who did election fixing was rewarded with a position in the Pakistan cricket board," he said referring to the presence of former caretaker chief minister of Punjab - Sethi - in the board.

"One of the negatives of his decision making is that now we have three captains for the three formats and I look at it as a joke because how can you have continuity in your team like this," Imran said.

Pakistan will now be seen playing a Test series against England on their home soil after a forgettable show in limited-overs cricket since the beginning of this year.
