ABU DHABI – Skipper Misbahul Haq becomes the most successful test captain in the history of Pakistan even leaving behind the legendary cricketers Javed Miandad and Imran Khan.
As Pakistan toiled the New Zealand’s batting line on the final day of first test on 231 runs, Misbahul Haq has bagged the most celebrated cricket record of his career.
Misbah is now the most successful test captain of Pakistan. He now holds the most Test wins by any Pakistani captain (15 test wins).
Misbah has captained Pakistan in only 31 Tests. While Miandad and Imran led in 34 and 48 matches respectively.
Speaking on this occasion Misbah ul Haq thanks everyone for believing in him. “I would like to thank everyone from in and out side the cricket line for giving me support. Specially the cricket board for providing me mental support.”
Replying to a question asked by presenter, Misbah said “Results do not popup quickly. One has to be consistent in hard work and finally it does pay. It was very difficult for me being unable to score much in past few series but I never give in the hard work. Eventually my bat is in line now. Everything is suddenly changed.”
