ISLAMABAD - Former Test cricketer Abdul Qadir expressed confidence that Pakistan would not only win the upcoming third Test for a 2-0 series victory but would also clinch the subsequent ODI series, saying Yasir Shah is the trump card for Pakistan against England.

"Yasir will play a vital role for Pakistan in winning the third Test," he told APP, adding conditions in the UAE do not support the English team.

"English team is not used to the hot weather and previously also Pakistan had whitewashed England in the test series there in 2012.Therefore, the pressure is all on the visitors," he said.

Speaking about the skipper Misbah-ul-Haq who has hinted about his retirement after the final Test against England, Qadir said PCB Chairman Shahryar Khan has asked Misbah to extend his Test career, which the skipper could easily do as he is "fit like any young player'.

"I admire Shahryar Khan's decision asking Misbah to continue playing. Misbah shouldn't have also retired from one-dayers as he was fit to play in the team and dependable in both versions of the game," he said.

Qadir, however, criticised PCB for some of its other decisions, saying an "accountability" of the board is the need of the hour.

Qadir claimed there is no check and balance on the PCB and therefore the game of cricket is suffering. "Former cricketers should be inducted in the board who know where and why the game is lagging behind," he said.

Qadir took exception to Subhan Ahmed serving as the PCB Chief Operating Officer (COO) "when he has no knowledge of the game.” “Does the PCB take stock of his performance in so many years of his tenure?" he said. Qadir said an audit should also be conducted of the past 10 years seeing where the money has been spent and whether it was needed or not.
