Pakistani Test Captain, Misbah-ul-Haq has bagged another record by becoming first ever Pakistani cricketer to captain his team for 50 test matches. The well-composed captain of Pakistan team also has a score of records on his name since he started to lead the Pakistan’s test team in 2011.
Misbah made this record while he entered the Hagley Oval ground in Christchurch on the second day of Pakistan’s match against Newzealand.
It was under the captaincy of this brave and courageous man that Pakistan managed to rank itself as the top test cricket team in the world for the first time after the new ranking system was introduced in 2003.
The 42 years old skipper is the only cricketer beyond 40 to score the most centuries. He also earns the credit of becoming the oldest test Centurian at Lord (The cricket ground in England also known as the home of cricket) in last 82 years. Misbah-ul-Haq is deemed as the successful captain of Pakistan cricket team and often compared with the world cup winning captain Imran Khan.
As the Misbah-ul-Haq’s retirement is approaching, PCB has not decided yet any replacement of the captain. In case Misbah manages to give good performance in this match, there are chances that cricket board would further ask the captain to offer his services by leading the team in future too.
