Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shahryar Khan on Monday said that the replacement for Test skipper Misbahul Haq has not been decided yet.

“We haven't decided who will lead the Test side once Misbah steps down,” said the PCB chairman in an exclusive interview with a local newspaper.

Misbah is expected to step down from the helm after the New Zealand and Australia tours.

“If the upcoming tours in Australia and New Zealand go well then we can even ask Misbah to continue leading the side for a while.

“Misbah and Younus Khan have been performing well for Pakistan and are in contention to remain in the side. However, they are nearing their retirements and for the future of the team we must make preparations from now.”

Speaking about Mohammad Hafeez, Shahryar said Hafeez's illegal bowling action led him to be stripped off the status of an all-rounder and he will play as a batsman if he ever got picked for the national side.

“Hafeez has requested to be tested in Loughborough, Cardiff and we obliged because he is a senior player of the team. However, if he fails to clear his test once again, it will be extremely difficult for the selection committee to include him in the national side,” said the PCB chief.
