Skipper Misbah In Demand, Sign Contract with Rangpur to Play BPL
Pakistani Skipper Misbah-ul-Haq has recently signed a contract with Rangpur to play in the third edition of the Bangladesh Premier League which begins from November 22.
Though the 41 year old captain has not played international T20 cricket since he stepped down as Pakistan captain in 2012, but he has been a consistent feature in domestic T20s and foreign leagues.
"I have signed with BPL," Misbah told ESPNcricinfo. "I want to carry on and keep myself motivated and maintain my fitness. So whatever cricket comes in I want to play to avoid being complacent."
Misbah heard to be keen on to secure a contract with an English county.
"I love the game and want to play it," Misbah had said after the England Test series. "It's really difficult when you have not played any competitive cricket for six, seven, eight months and suddenly you come and play against top players. So this is a period you need to motivate yourself."
Misbah joins 16 other compatriots including the likes of Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi, Umer Akmal and Mohammed Amir who have already signed up with their respective BPL sides.
Misbah’s next Pakistan assignment would be a tour of England in July 2016.
