PAKISTAN FORMER CRICKET TEAM CAPTAIN RAMIZ RAJA HAS SATURDAY THAT IT WAS TIME FOR MISBAH TO MOVE ON,
HE FURTHER SAID, ACCORDING TO HIM, MISBAH TIME IS UP .
he told AFP. “Every sportsman goes through this phase and captain Misbah has offered enough so it’s time to move on.
“I think a captain can only give his best for five years — a period where he gives his maximum — and then his flow chart goes down.
“After that opponents know about his strategies and Misbah has spent that in a glorious way. He has played his innings well to become Pakistan’s most successful skipper,” he added.
Raja, a former CEO of the Pakistan Cricket Board, added that Misbah’s captaincy had taken a sharp turn for the worse in the series, with bizarre field placements and a failure to inspire his charges.
“I think Misbah was let down by his bowling and his field placings were not accurate either,” he said.
