Currently Sachin Tendular (13 Fifties in 32 innings in 2007) jointly held the most fifties record in a calendar year with Gary Kristen (13 Fifties in 36 innings in 2000).
Misbah-ul-Haq is one fifty away to break the record but he already has good average score rate (53.17) as compare to Tendulker (47.5) and Kristen (44.45).
Though, Misbah criticized during last series against South Africa in UAE but the most remarkable aspect about Misbah-ul-Haq is his unflappable temperament.
It shows in his batting, which reached unprecedented levels of consistency in 2011, and in his captaincy, which helped lift Pakistan from the depths of the spot-fixing saga in England in 2010.
Taking over as leader immediately after that episode at the age of 36, Misbah’s calm approach was exactly what Pakistan cricket needed after the tumultuous period it had gone through.
Degree holder in business management, 39 year Misbah is right-handed middle order batesman.
