The Difference Misbah Has Made

Before Misbah was captain:-
Pakistan lost 10 out of their last 15 tests
They had lost 6 out of their last 9 series with no series win

Since Misbah has been captain:-
Pakistan have only lost 1 in their last 15 tests
They have won 5 out of their last 7 series with none lost

In both sets of 15 tests Pakistan played against Sri Lanka, New Zealand & England away from home. This is the difference Misbah has made to the fate of Pakistan Cricket in the format which matters most for the pure cricket fans & always will matter the most.

Misbah is right up there with the likes of Michael Atherton, Mike Brearley, Michael Vaughan, Nasser Hussain, Andrew Strauss, Clive Lloyd, Kepler Wessels, Arjuna Ranatunga, Imran Khan, Allan Border, Steve Waugh etc as one of the most influential captains world cricket has ever seen on and off the field. Results are excellent but secondary in such a case, just look at the time & place he had to take over the thankless job & how far the team has come since. To say it is a remarkable journey is an understatement. It's simply out of this world....
