Pakistan’s beleaguered captain Misbahul Haq found a much-needed vote of confidence from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shaharyar Khan during an hour-long meeting held at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore yesterday.
Shaharyar spoke with both Misbah and head coach Waqar Younis separately in a bid to dissect the poor results of the Sri Lanka tour.
The Misbah-led side lost the Test series 2-0 and the three-match ODI series 2-1.
A PCB official told the media that the chairman had backed Misbah as captain all the way up to the 2015 World Cup as there was hardly any time left before the mega event.
At the end of the Sri Lanka series, many former Test captains including Mohammad Yousuf and Rashid Latif had asked for Misbah to be replaced with all-rounder Shahid Afridi as captain.
