Pakistan Test captain Misbahul Haq on Friday hinted he is set to retire from the longest format of the game after his team suffered an embarrassing defeat against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
The 42-year-old, who is the most successful captain in the country’s Test history, has been severely criticised for his tactics after the team lost their fifth consecutive match on Australian soil.

Addressing the media after the match, Misbah said he will make a decision regarding retirement in the coming days. “I will decide about retirement within the next two to three days,” he said.
“Since I am not performing with the bat recently, I know I don’t deserve a place in the team right now,” he added.

The middle-order batsman has been in terrible form in the ongoing series. Misbah scored just 20 runs in four innings with the average of five runs per innings.
