Outgoing Pakistan skipper Misbah offered ICC role


Retiring Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has been offered the chance to continue his career the sport as an International Cricket Council match referee.

A 42-year-old veteran of 74 Tests, Misbah batted his final innings on day four of the third match against West Indies in Dominica on Saturday, scoring just two runs.

However, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shahryar Khan hopes the outgoing skipper will continue representing the country with a different international post.

"In the past, not many players from Pakistan represented at ICC as referee but many cricketers from other countries during the past few years have come forward," said Khan.

"I would be happy if Misbah accepts the offer."

Misbah, widely regarded as Pakistan's greatest captain, and team-mate Younis Khan look set to sign off with a win as the Windies require 297 for victory on Sunday.
