Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq and flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi's ODI careers came to an end on Friday following their World Cup quarterfinal defeat against Australia but the two players will continue to play Test and Twenty cricket respectively.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq on Friday failed to capitalise on a lucky escape against Australia in their 2015 ICC World Cup quarter-final match in Adelaide. Pacer Josh Hazlewood seemed to have bowled him, when Pakistan was stuttering at 24 for two, but the bail didn't fall despite the delivery hitting the stumps.
After criticising Misbah-ul-haq severely in the recent past, former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar on Sunday took a U-turn, saying the captain was the person who was keeping the team alive and he needs support from other batsmen.
Pakistan's Test and one-day captain Misbah-ul-Haq realizes just how important it is for the national team to do well in the 2015 World Cup and for this he wants to take some tips from cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan.
Gearing up for the marquee clash against India, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq wants his batsmen to learn quickly from the mistakes they made against minnows Afghanistan in their Asia Cup preliminary clash here.
