Gul: I also wish to be a captain

Fast bowler Umar Gul has revealed a desire to captain Pakistan's Twenty20 International team.

Fast bowler Umar Gul has revealed a desire to captain Pakistan's Twenty20 International team.

Batsman Mohammad Hafeez quit the position after an unsuccessful World Twenty20 campaign in Bangladesh earlier this year.

"I also wish to be a captain so that when I retire I will be remembered as former captain," said Gul.

"But it depends on PCB what they think. I want to return to performing like I used to in the past, and if so then why not consider the captaincy.

"But I have no issue playing under any captain, either the senior or junior, and recently I have fully supported Hafeez as well."

The right-arm seamer recently returned to international cricket after recovering from a knee injury. While his position in the limited-overs unit has been reaffirmed, Gul has not played a Test match since February 2013.

"It's very difficult to come back after injury in international cricket but still I am lucky enough to survive," he added.

"Though things were a bit up and down I am feeling much better. I am trying to do hard training more than others, so that I could be as much fit as I was before operation."
