The ability to show in the series SA. Misbah said

KARACHI - Pakistan need to stand up and be count against South Africa pace attack in their series with the world top-ranked test country starting next month, captain Misbah-ul-Haq said on Friday.

This series is one of the biggest challenges of my captaincy term but I am confident that we can pose a serious threat to South Africa, Misbah told Reuters. The 16-member Pakistan squad leave on Sunday for a 2-month tour that begins with a 3-test match from February1.Pakistan are touring South Africa for the 1st time since 2007.

The coming series is very important for Pakistan cricket because we have mostly played our cricket in South Asia or the UAE since 2010, Misbah added. The last few years have been a big challenge for Pakistan players have come through well most of the time.

No test playing country has visited Pakistan since March, 2009 when militants attacked the Sri Lankan team in Lahore. Misbah said he was confident about the series because Pakistan, like South Africa, had a strong bowling attack.

Until now our spin bowlers have come through for us now it is the turn of the pace bowlers to deliver. I am confident that players like Umar Gul and Junaid Khan will be our strike bowlers and we have a good spin backup in Saeed Ajmal, he said.

Misbah said his largest concern was putting substantial runs on the board against an attack boasting Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Vernon Philander. South Africa has one of the best pace bowling attackers in the world so we have to stand up and be count.

Misbah said his team main strength had been their unity which had helped them whitewash England in early 2011 in a 3-test series in the UAE.No one gave us a serious chance of beating England but we did that because we have gelled well as a team. That will be our main strength in South Africa despite their formidable batting and bowling resources, he said.

South Africa completed a 2-0 series win over New Zealand on Monday after thumping the visitors by an innings and 13 runs, only their 2nd home test series win in 4 years.

The Proteas have risen to the top of the International Cricket Council test team rankings thanks to their wonderful away form during which they have won back-to-back series in Australia and England and remain unbeaten on their travels since 2006.

Dhoni in no feel to step down as captain

Rajkot-India skipper M. S. Dhoni on Thursday said stepping down from the ODI captaincy was great he has not thought about and gone it to the selectors to take the call.

On the eve of the first ODI match against England, when asked whether he had consideration about stepping down as captain from all of the versions, Dhoni said- Never...In team sport, it is main that everyone keeps believing in themselves and understands their responsibility.

We have to play out of our skins: Cook

Dhoni said it was for the selectors to choose his future as captain. We have to wait and watch but that's something that is not in my mind before the start of a main series. I can't think about that. It is very important to stay focused on this series, he said.

With star starter Virender Sehwag dropped from the ODI squad, there were calls for Dhoni removal as captain following the team's Test series defeat to England before Christmas and ODI series loss at the hands of Pakistan.

Dhoni, however, remains unfazed. He was India's best player in the Pakistan series, with scores of 113 not out, 54 not out and 36 in the 1-2 defeat.

We play the longer format, shorter format and T20match, they are different challenges in total, he said. But in India at the top level you are likely to stand up to these challenges. Dhoni also hinted that Sehwag replacement in the squad, Cheteshwar Pujara, was unlikely to play on Friday.
