'Misbah to remain as captain for Asia Cup'

Islamabad, Sun, 26 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 26 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has no plans to strip Misbahul-Haq of the captaincy in any format of the sport in the near future, in the wake of the ODI series whitewash against England.


"Misbah is going to be retained as captain for the Asia Cup and there are no immediate plans to sack him as captain of the one-day or T20 squads," the Daily Times quoted a senior PCB official, as saying.


He also ruled out any major overhaul in the national selection committee before the Asia Cup.


"All this talk about Misbah being replaced as captain for limited overs cricket is not correct. So far he is captain for all three formats and this issue is not even on the agenda of the governing board meeting that is due to be held on March 1," the official added.


He said the governing board meeting would mostly deal with passing the audited budget report of last fiscal year, release of funds for under construction projects and the Woolfe report on the governance of the ICC.


"If any member wants to discuss the team performance or related issue that can be done but it is not on the agenda," the official said.


The PCB official also confirmed that the national selection committee would not be changed after the England series. (ANI)
