Pakistan Cricket has seen great success under Misbah ul Haq's test captaincy. He is acknowledged as the most successful Pakistan test team captain in the Pakistan Cricket history. The player is a blend of cool mentality and as well as aggressive approach. He can stay long in the crease without scoring a run whenever needed and he can play aggressively as to when it is needed. He is the second fastest century scorer in the test format. Recently Brendum McCulum broken his fastest test hundred record.
Pakistan Cricket Board requested Misbah ul Haq to stay long as much as he can for the betterment of Pakistan cricket. He is turning 42 years of age now and he is planning to still stay as a player and as a captain till late this year. He has to lead the side in the foreign tours to England and Australia. These would definitely be tough tours as the conditions in subcontinent and England or Australia are different. Earlier Pakistani batsmen struggled a lot in such tours. So, it is best for Pakistan cricket team that Misbah ul Haq could lead the side in such tough situations.
