Pakistan’s Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq looked forward to his team’s bigger challenges ahead after thumping England 2-0 in the three-match series in Sharjah on Thursday, saying wins on away tours matter. The series win lifted Pakistan to number two in the Test rankings but Misbah said it will be how they perform on away tours which will make his team greater.

“I think our biggest challenge is to play abroad so we have to get ready for that and prepare for that,” said Misbah of Pakistan’s tours to England in July next year followed by visits to New Zealand and Australia. Misbah said his team needed to prepare for the four Test tour of England as of now.

“We have achieved a big and satisfying win against England but we have to forget that and from now on really prepare for the tough challenges as we have to plan differently on tours,” said Misbah, who remains undecided over his own Test future. “There has been a lot of talk on that,” said Misbah who had hinted retiring from Test cricket after the England series.

“Obviously I have some time to think about that, at the moment not sure about that. “Let’s see, we have enough time for the next series and I can just rethink and plan what I am going to do in the next two three months,” said Misbah, who admitted it will be tough to motivate himself after only playing one format.
