Why was Brathwaite left out of West Indies' ODI squad?

Pakistan and West Indies will aim to consolidate their positions on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team Rankings in their bid to qualify directly for the 2019 World Cup when they feature in a three-match ODI series starting in Guyana on Friday (April 7).

Asghar and Shadab are yet to play Test cricket for Pakistan, although the latter has made an impressive global debut in the just-concluded T20 series, grabbing 10 wickets in the four-match series that Pakistan won 3-1.

Earlier in the day, former Pakistan legspinner Mushtaq Ahmed, who is now serving as Pakistan National Cricket Academy's head coach, said that Shadab Khan should be included in the national Test squad, and play alongside Yasir Shah.

Former Test spinner Mushtaq Ahmed believes young spin sensation Shadab Khan and Yasir Shah could form a lethal leg-spin duo for Pakistan. Pakistan won the match by seven wickets and the series 3-1.

Mushtaq, who is the current head coach at the National Cricket Academy, is helping the 18-year-old Shadab refine his skills and working on improving Shah's art of bowling googlies.

"Two leg-spinners against a western team will have a positive impact", Ahmed said.

"Shadab has good variations, but 50 overs and five-day formats are totally different. He [Shadab] could learn from Yasir like I learnt from Qadir bhai and then Danish learnt from me when I was his senior".

Misbah, 42, has been under pressure since Pakistan were whitewashed in the Test series in New Zealand and Australia late past year to step down after a long and successful Test career as captain since late 2010.

On both occasions, he bamboozled the West Indies batsmen to good effect, while putting his name firmly in the selectors' minds for the upcoming Test series.

Khan, however, underlined that he had not spoken to Misbah about his retirement plan, but added that it was an obvious understanding that WI series was going to be the last for the captain.

The West Indies lead Pakistan 15-13 on a head-to-head at home and have a chance to move ahead of the visiting side.
