West Indies Test series to be Misbah-ul-Haq's swansong: Shaharyar Khan

The Pakistan cricket team announced its Test squad against West Indies on Wednesday according to which Misbah-ul-Haq will lead the side with Sarfraz Ahmed as his subordinate.

The spin attack would consist of Yasir Shah and the uncapped left-arm spinner Mohammad Asghar, who toured Australia as back-up for Yasir.

The Barbadian, who presided over the Windies 3-1 defeat in the four-match T20 series against Pakistan which ended Sunday, will now turn his attention to his commitments to Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League starting later this week.

Shah, meanwhile, has been Pakistan's key bowler since making his Test debut in 2014.

Shaharyar Khan that PCB is looking for a neutral venue which may be Sri Lanka as hosting matches in United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a costly venture. He has 124 wickets to his name in only 23 Test matches, although he has struggled in conditions outside the sub-continent. The two other matches will be played on April 30 and May 10.

With the ODI series bearing a lot of importance to West Indies' hopes of gaining automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup, Law admitted that his side have to be a lot more consistent than they were in the Twenty20 series.

Misbah, 42, has been under pressure since Pakistan were whitewashed in the Test series in New Zealand and Australia late a year ago to step down after a long and successful Test career as captain since late 2010.

"The series will be crucial and as I said it's very important that we play good cricket".

West Indies are scheduled to play Pakistan in an ODI series followed by Tests, which coincides with the IPL.

The series could have huge ramifications on automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup - Pakistan are now eighth in the rankings, five points and a place above West Indies, who would be facing the prospect of having to come through a qualifier if their position does not improve ahead of the September cut-off.
