Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq is yet to announce if the tour to the West Indies will be his final one for Pakistan but the Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan today made it clear that the series will bring the curtains down on the veteran batsman's worldwide career. "In one-day cricket if we have leg-spinners who could take wickets in the middle overs, it will be a huge advantage for us".

Brathwaite recently captained the West Indies in the four-match Twenty20 series against Pakistan, which the men from the Caribbean lost 3-1.

Shah has been Pakistan's leading Test wicket-taker since late 2014.

Shaharyar Khan that PCB is looking for a neutral venue which may be Sri Lanka as hosting matches in United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a costly venture.

However, Ahmed blamed conditions in Australia for Shah's below-par performance and said the 30-year-old bowler remains Pakistan's first choice spinner in the longer format. Unlike Yasir Shah, the 18-year-old bowls a flawless googly and, more importantly, is a thinking bowler. "He has been left out for those reasons and it's just coincided that the IPL is there and we have no cricket after this ODI series, and he hasn't been part of the last Test series".

Law put down the omission of the other Brathwaite in the West Indies set-up - Kraigg - to a desire to see a more positive approach in the first Powerplay during an ODI.

The West Indies have dropped opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite for this month's ODI series against Pakistan. "He knows whether he has the form, fitness and hunger for cricket to carry on or step down", Misbah said in a recent interview.

Misbah-ul-Haq will continue to lead the side, which includes seven changes to the 17-member squad that toured Australia in December-January. "Pakistan has not won a test series in the West Indies and I am sure it will be his target and also finish his career on a high".
