Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has revealed that he will make a decision on his future after the upcoming series against England in the United Arab Emirates.
Ul-Haq, who retired from ODIs after the 2015 World Cup, earlier said that he would like to end his international career after the planned series against India in December.
However, with the series against India currently in jeopardy, the 41-year-old may decide to hang up his boots after the England series concludes.
“I have made no plans at this time, but I will review my future and what I should do after the series against England,” he said.
Ul-Haq also made it clear that Pakistan cannot afford to take England lightly even though they are playing on home soil. Pakistan whitewashed England 3-0 when they last met in the United Arab Emirates in early 2012, but ul-Haq pointed out that England are coming into the series on a high as they recently beat Australia 3-2 to regain the Ashes.
“The series against England will be a challenging one even though we play on pitches to which we are used too playing,” he said. “But I don’t think the results of 2012 will matter now as England have new players and have recently won the Ashes as well.”
