Shoaib Malik's two year tenure as Pakistan captain expires on Wednesday, but in all probability the Pakistan Cricket Board is likely to retain the all-rounder for another year.

With no suitable replacement in sight and his fine performances with the national as well as domestic team in the last couple of matches this year, the Pakistan Cricket Board is expected to retain Malik as the skipper.

Malik took up the top job from Inzamam-ul Haq after Pakistan's disastrous outing in the 2007 World Cup with the PCB preferring to ignore senior players like Mohammad Yousuf, who defected to the rebel Indian Cricket League, Shahid Afridi and even Shoaib Akhtar while appointing him.

However, Malik faced severe criticism from all quarters since taking up the job and even Yousuf held the all-rounder responsible for his jump to the ICL.
