The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked long-serving Test captain, Misbah-ul-Haq to lead the national team till the tour of Australia after which it would look into appointing his successor.
According to a reliable source in the board, Misbah was asked to continue as captain until the series in Australia when he met with PCB Chairman, Shaharyar Khan before the team left for England in June.
"The meeting took place before the team left for England and in it the future of Misbah was discussed and it was agreed he should remain in charge until Australia series," the source said.
Misbah, 43, has indicated in recent times that he was contemplating a retirement from all international cricket. The 43-year old has already retired from ODIs after last year's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
