After his very first series again Australia, i thought he was just another player who would come and go, and to tell the truth i was really against him being in the T20 squad ahead of Yousuf.

BUT NOW

I absolutely love Misbah, he's one of my favourite players. He always gives 110% for Pakistan and a really hop he can Insh'Allah continue to play at least until the next world cup. HUGE fan of Misbah, keep it up:19:

Just one thing though, i would advise him to work on his batting against fast bowlers:)

Misbah basically gave a big eff you to the majority of PP (including myself). Everyone was livid that Yousuf was dropped by the PCB because they wanted to inject youth by adding a player over 30. Boy did he shut us all up.

stats page: http://content-uk.cricinfo.com/pakistan/content/player/41378.html

Summary: An orthodox batsman with reasonable technique, Misbah-ul-Haq caught the eye with his unflappable temperament in the tri-nation one-day tournament in Nairobi in 2002, scoring two fifties in three innings, including one in the final against Australia. But before Pakistan could hail him as a possible middle-order mainstay, Misbah's form slumped - he didn't manage a single 20-plus score in three Tests against Australia and was duly dumped. Pakistan's abysmal World Cup campaign - and the wholesale changes to the team in its aftermath - gave Misbah another chance to redeem himself, but he did little of note in the limited opportunities he got.

Even though Misbah had not represented Pakistan for about three years, a run-filled domestic season, followed by club cricket in England, and Inzamam's retirement from ODIs prompted the board to award Misbah a central contract in July 2007. A month later, he was surprisingly picked, ahead of Mohammad Yousuf, for the 15-man squad for the Twenty20 World Championship in South Africa. He repaid the selectors' faith by finishing the tournament as Pakistan's best player and nearly taking them to victory in the final. He was duly named in the team for the Test and ODI series that followed against South Africa.

After an unremarkable series against South Africa, Misbah was by far Pakistan's best batsman through the Tests against India, amassing 464 runs in three matches, including two centuries. He was ice-cool in crisis, rescuing Pakistan on several occasions with spirited rearguard efforts. His remarkable rise continued as a mere six months after being picked for the ICC World Twenty20, he was made vice-captain and handed a top-category contract in January 2008.

There's something about Misbah that always wants to make you watch cricket. Whether its trying to play the little dab shot for singles, his enthusiastic running between the wickets, the wry smile after he misses the ball, the one knee six over the on side, the backing away and trying to carve the ball through the covers, holding his bat high and looking around with those hawkish eyes trying to lineup the ball. The man is entertaining as anybody when he's batting.
