Misbah will lead Pakistan in the Tests, the first of which starts in Jamaica on April 21, the second in Barbados on April 30 and the third in Dominica on May 10.
Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq on Thursday announced that the upcoming Test series against the West Indies will be his last, ending months of speculation about his future. In one such instance, Ahmed played alongside Abdul Qadir against the West Indies in 1990 in Karachi and Pakistan won the test match by eight wickets.
"I was under no pressure from anyone", he added.
The 18-year-old made his global debut in last week's Twenty20 series against the West Indies and could hardly have been more impressive, capturing 10 wickets against the world champions to be named player of the series. In 2015, Shadab was part of the Pakistan Under-17 team which played against England in the United Arab Emirates.
The series win over the World champions on Sunday lifted Pakistan from No. 6 in the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20I team rankings to No. 4, and sent the Caribbean side down to the sixth position.
Misbah backed Sarfraz to also lead Pakistan in test matches after he quits.
The 42-year-old, named as one of Widen's Five Cricketers of the Year for 2016 on Wednesday, has been contemplating retirement since last summer.

The company also rewarded shareholders by distributing $3.5 billion, counting the first supplemental dividend of $1 billion. The auto manufacturer reported $0.30 earnings per share for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.31 by $0.01.

Misbah regretted that he couldn't lead Pakistan against India during his test career and also Pakistan couldn't do well in the 50-over World Cups in 2011 and 2015.
Between 2003 and 2007 he didn't play a single Test, and only received a central contract from the Pakistan Board after Inzamam retired in 2007.
West Indies vs Pakistan ODI Series schedule (all matches in Guyana): 1st ODI (April 7), 2nd ODI (April 9), 3rd ODI (April 11). Misbah was handed the captaincy in the wake of the spot-fixing scandal in 2010. "So overall, I am satisfied with my performance". "I think Shadab was very good in this [T20] series and I just see him getting better and better". "I will continue to play cricket at the domestic level".
"I am announcing my retirement from worldwide cricket. You don't get everything you ask for".
This will also be the final series before the annual update is carried out on May 1 to ensure the table continues to reflect teams' recent form with older results being discarded. "I just hope the players now learn their lesson".
He said Misbah should be given a proper send-off as his services for Pakistan cricket are laudable.
