Pakistan Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq is planning to quit worldwide cricket after the three-Test series in the West Indies beginning later this month, he announced on Thursday.

"The upcoming series against West Indies will be my last", Misbah told reporters at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

"One regret is that I never captained the Test team in Pakistan and also not captaining against India", said Misbah before stating that he will continue to play domestic cricket for "as long as I'm enjoying it". Pakistan, for the first time, also occupied top test rankings previous year under his captaincy.

The final Test begins on May 10 in Dominica. "I believe that if I put in more hard work, I will definitely get more rewards in global cricket", Shadab said.

Holder and his men, along with their Pakistani opponents, arrived in Guyana at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Monday afternoon ahead of their three matches to be played in Guyana.

Expressing his concern over recent Test defeats faced by Pakistan, Misbah said the slump does not accurately represent the true potential of the team.

Last year, he became the oldest Test centurion in 82 years to reach three figures at the "home of cricket" - the Lord's Cricket Ground - during a four-Test series against England. "I really work hard on leg-spin and flippers too and will try to be the best in all three varieties". "Conditions in the West Indies will be challenging but we have a good chance to come back on winning track". You get disappointed a bit with your failures but you don't give up.

"I think the ODI series is going to be a real challenge for us and one that we are really looking forward to given the importance it holds for both teams. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can provide in the top order", Law said.

Under Misbah-ul-Haq's leadership, Pakistan climbed to No.1 in the Test rankings for a couple of months.

Misbah performs iconic push-ups to celebrate achievement when Pakistan secured number-one Test ranking.

"Sarfraz is leading Pakistan in limited-over formats, it would be good if everyone supports him", Misbah said.

Speculation regarding Misbah's retirement had been sparked by Pakistan's disastrous tours of Australia and New Zealand.

He said Misbah should be given a proper send-off as his services for Pakistan cricket are laudable.
