A British Newspaper named Misbah Ul Haque the most honourable cricketer of the modern era. According to the newspaper, Michael Clark might have turned Australian team around with bat and captaincy, Shivnarine Chanderpaul might have proven backbone for West Indian cricket team for years through bad times but Misbah Ul Haque as a captain faced the worst times of Pakistan Cricket.

Even a great person like Imran Khan would have felt it hard to lead the team in such times. Misbah led the team when the administration of the Pakistan cricket board was in total chaos, attack on Sri Lankan team and then denial of International Cricket being played in Pakistan while selection of the players in the team and grouping in the National team were all surrounding Pakistan Cricket.

Spot fixing of 2010 was very demoralizing and it took away two best bowlers Muhammad Amir and Muhammad Asif in addition to Salman Butt.

He sailed the team with himself through all those troubled times and with a great victory over Sri Lanka a few days ago has put him in the class of legends.

He has scored the most runs in ODI in the year 2013 and as a Captain his average in test matches is 61.4 as compared to his before captaincy average i.e. 33.6.

Misbah has now more test victories as captain than Imran Khan. Misbah Ul Haque has earned his MBA from highly regarded University LUMS.

In the very famous victory against Sri Lanka, Misbah played a captain’s innings with 68 not out and also helped the young Azhar Ali to a century with 109 runs partnership. He also made 63 runs in the first innings and also had a partnership with first innings centurion Ahmad Shahzad.
