Karachi: Former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf on Sunday advised Misbah-ul-Haq to promote himself to number three in the Test format in order to address the batting problems of the team.

"Look, he is our in-form batsman, and is scoring runs. I don't understand why he is reluctant to bat at number three. If he does that it means Pakistan has more chances of getting strong starts from the top and it will release pressure on the lower order batsmen," said Yousuf.

Pakistan lost to Sri Lanka by nine wickets in the second Test of the three-match series.
