Zaheer wants Misbah as ODI skipper

 Former Pakistan skipper and stylish batsman Zaheer Abbas is impressed with captaincy skill of newly-appointed test skipper of Pakistan cricket team Misbah-ul-Haq and has said that he should be given captaincy in one day internationals as well.

Pakistan cricket team have played well under the captaincy of Misbah in the last three test matches where two test matches ended in a draw against South Africa in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and they won the first test match against New Zealand on Sunday by 10 wickets.

Pakistan known to be the weaker team in test format of the cricket and to draw a series against current world number two team in the ICC test rankings is itself some achievement.

Misbah impressed everyone with his captaincy during the three test matches and also made important contributions with the bat in all the three test matches.

Asian Bradman Zaheer Abbas was also impressed with captaincy of Misbah and said, “The way Misbah is captaining the Pakistan team in test matches; Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should appoint him as captain for ODI series against New Zealand and also in ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.”

“His own performance with the bat is also very impressive which adds to the team confidence,” Zaheer added.

PCB is due to announce one day squad for six-match ODI series against Black Caps and final squad for World Cup and the way Misbah is performing, there are chances that PCB may appoint him as ODI skipper.
