Play fearless cricket in WC, says Misbah
“My message to all my players is not to think about defeat and just go out and play fearless cricket in the World Cup,” said Misbah, who has announced his decision to retire from ODIs after the World Cup.

“Obviously I would love to end my ODI career on a high and nothing could be greater than winning the World Cup. But right now my ambition is to do well in the tournament and also inspire and motivate other players with my performances,” he said.

The veteran batsman also made it clear he had announced his decision to retire from ODI under no duress. “There is no pressure on me nor was I bothered by the criticism I have faced. I took the decision to retire from ODIs with a very open and positive mind. I will go out without any regrets,” he told a news conference on Tuesday.

Misbah said Pakistan’s World Cup-bound team has some exciting talents and there was ample time for them to go and adjust to the conditions in Australia and New Zealand. The Pakistan captain also made it clear that the secret to his success as captain was his team. “I am successful because of the way these players have performed over the years. They gave me and the team 100 per cent,” Misbah said.
