London: Sep 9, 2012

 

Former Pakistan skipper Ramiz Raja believes the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and national selectors should continue with Misbah-ul-Haq as the One-Day International skipper.

 

“I would stick with Misbah-ul-Haq for the foreseeable future as captain of the one day team. I think Misbah has done a wonderful job, and Pakistan cricket does not need such jolts, as would occur if he was removed from captaining the one day team,” Raja said.

 

“Misbah brought the team together after a very difficult phase for Pakistan cricket and he brings to the fore a lot of calmness. Also, I think, looking at the batting talent available to Pakistan, Misbah still fits into the team. Pakistan has not found anybody who is very talented in the middle order that can replace Misbah-ul-Haq,” he added.

 

“You can query some of Misbah’s tactics as captain, but I think, overall, he has done a good job, and I would not change him as captain of the one day team at this point in time,” Raja was quoted as saying by Pak.Passion.net.

 

Howvere, Raja was apprehensive about whether Misbah would captain Pakistan in the 2015 World Cup.

 

“It all depends on Misbah’s form and how Pakistan reacts under his captaincy. At this moment in time though I would like to see Misbah-ul-Haq hang around and hang in to the role of captain in the fifty over format,” Raja concluded.
