Karachi: Pakistan great Javed Miandad has come out in strong support of under pressure national captain Misbah-ul-Haq, who decided to "rest" from the third ODI against Australia.

"No one realises that it is because Misbah is not scoring runs is the main reason for the team’s recent poor performances in Sri Lanka and Australia. Now his critics and these experts need to realise his value to the team as a leader on the field and as a batsman," Miandad told PTI on Monday.

Miandad, who has been chief coach of the national team thrice, said those trying to give the impression that Misbah was the problem in the team were doing no service to the team.
