LAHORE- Pakistan’s captain Misbah-ul-Haq today informed the Pakistan Cricket Board about his retirement from ODIs after the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

According to reports, Misbah conveyed to the board chairman that he would like to announce his retirement from ODIs through the board.

Unlike Shahid Afridi, Misbah wants to do it through the board. Also, Misbah wants to continue playing Test cricket but not ODIs.

“He is keen to lead Pakistan in the Test series against Sri Lanka, England and India this year,” an official from PCB said.

Misbah has been the ODI captain since mid-2011.
