ISLAMABAD---Pakistan Test captain
Misbah-ul-Haq has confirmed his
retirement from limited-overs cricket
on returning from the World Cup,
where Pakistan lost in the quarterfi-
"I have played my innings, and I
should stay away from it (ODIs). It s a
challenge for the cricket board to find
a new (ODI) captain," the 41-year-old
Misbah said yesterday.
"My One-Day career is over, and now
it s the responsibility of youngsters how
they move Pakistan cricket forward."
Misbah informed the Pakistan Cricket
Board before the World Cup that he
would quit ODIs after the mega event
in Australia and New Zealand, but
remain available to play the longer for-
Pakistan is scheduled to play two
Tests, three ODIs, and a Twenty20 in
Bangladesh next month, when Misbah
is expected to lead only in the tests.
Pakistan also has planned Test series
against Sri Lanka and India this year,
and Misbah said he would decide on
his test future after playing in these
In 162 ODIs, Misbah scored 5,122 runs
at a healthy average of 43.40, with 42
half centuries but no centuries. His
defensive captaincy and strike rate of
73.75 was often criticised by Pakistan s
Misbah was the leading Pakistan scor-
er in the World Cup with 350 runs from
seven matches, but the rest of the mid-
dle order disappointed. Pakistan could
score only 300 runs once against a weak
United Arab Emirates in pool play, and
Sarfraz Ahmed was the lone century-
maker in the tournament.
"As a batting unit, we are not yet
matured and know how to play big
innings," Misbah said. "We have prob-
lems in our batting ... maybe if they
(batsmen) get more exposure of inter-
national cricket they get better."
Misbah was impressed by comments
from former players Sikander Bakht,
Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Yousuf,
who called into question his team strat-
"It hurts when senior players ... use
such words that the whole world gets
disappointed," Misbah said.
"It s (a poor performance) not because
of one man. I wasn t in the team in
2007 and 2003. Somebody should ask
them why the team made early exit in
those two World Cups. They should
give solutions (for Pakistan cricket), and
should think before speaking on tele-
Misbah advised the PCB that it should
give some authority to the coach and
captain when the team is finalised for

the selection committee has the final
authority," Misbah said.
"The captain gives his suggestion but
he doesn t have the authority. Captain

The agreement with the Sun-
risers will see Pietersen miss the
entire first phase of the IPL,
enabling him to play for an English
county side. The batsman will be
recalled if the Sunrisers reach the
knockout stages from May 19-24.
England ditched Pietersen after
last year s Ashes in Australia so
the team could build a new "ethos
and philosophy" without its most
talented and controversial batsman.
However, the new chief of English
cricket said recently that Pietersen
could be recalled if he performed
well in county cricket.
"My focus is now very much on
the upcoming season in England,
and I m absolutely determined to
score as many runs as possible,"
Pietersen said in a statement on
his official Web site.
Surrey deregistered Pietersen six
months ago after a summer in
which he played only T20 cricket,
but has been heavily linked with
re-signing England s top run-scor-
er in all formats.
The statement said Pietersen s
aim was to earn "a place in the
England squad for the upcoming
Ashes series" against Australia,
with the first of five Tests starting
England also plays two Tests
against New Zealand across May
and June. The first test is at Lord s
starting May 21, which clashes
with the IPL finals. (AP)
