Got kicked out of the Pakistani test team in 2017 and complained in the media about the PCB forcing him out. Now IU told him very politely to give up being a player and take on a mentor role behind the scenes and he throws a sissy fit and decides to put himself in the draft instead.

    And he is still hogging a spot in domestic cricket ahead of a more deserving younger player. The selfishness of this man knows no bounds.
    Do you blame him? The guy practically got his run in cricket at the age of 33. It’s like a man going through a late adolescence. His time to have fun and play Was spent in the wilderness of the domestic scene, when he got his chance to shine he wants to saturate it to the maximum. Unfortunately age is just a number for him but he really looks past it now.


    Can still be a decent player at Premier league standard in club cricket

    He has had ample time to maximize his earnings in Cricket and has probably made way than other domestic cricketers. Besides he has enough experience and reputation to earn more as a commentator, pundit, coach, manager, mentor. No excuse for him to desperately hog a position in domestic cricket anymore.

    A kamikaze team like LQ could use a survivor like Misbah. Not only for his calmness he brings but also so that they do not self destruct in the middle overs.

    Shouldn't bat higher than 6/7 otherwise he will waste a lot deliveries.

    Whatever team grabs him will have a great chance of winning the tournament.

    Guy's the best PSL strategist, will do better than the likes of Afridi.

    If LQ grab him, their black days are finally gonna be over. They'll see and taste what victory feels like!

    Finally.

    And the haters like @Savak will continue to burn, like they have been since 2012.

    Which would be a shame because he brings nothing to the table as a player alone. Those who are saying he is a strategist should know that he could have done the same in the role of a coach / mentor /management member. As a batsman, he brings nothing but unending misery.

    Perhaps he thinks that he didnt fail properly last time because of his injury and wants to fail adequately this time around to call it a day.

    He must have made a deal with some franchises behind the scenes. Bold decision by IU too to categorically mention that they won't pick him in the draft. Misbah was never selfless as his cheerleaders always claimed him to be, he was the opposite.

    I'm one of Misbah's biggest fan and any team which gets him will definitely be richer for the good. I might be wrong on this but I believe Misbah has taken the decision because he wants to raise money for his hospital and other social endeavors. Being a player will get him more money than being a mentor.

    That is the most likeliest reason.

    I suspect he will play a few games and then mentor the rest of the tourney from the dressing room

    Probably one of the factors.

    If it is LQ indeed, then the biggest factor would be that LQ wants a victory.

    They've never won any PSL edition so far.

    Misbah is the right man to have them taste their first win. Will do well as a player and on field support to any captain.


    LQ supporters, be happy.

    The PSL is yours!

    Bad decision. If he's up as a player then he must have plans with a team. (I hope it's not Lahore). If he dosen't get picked it will be a shame for him.

    Why on earth would you recommend a team to buy a 45 year old who finished PSL 2018 with a marvellous SR of 75.

    In addition it sets such a bad precedent for the future like we've already seen Abdul Razzaq making a return and we'll see the same with the likes of Hafeez, Shoaib Malik and etc. The current crop of players will then follow suit.

    It's a disgrace and then people wonder why our cricket is in such turmoil...

    His absence will make no difference to the fortunes of IU going forward - after all he wasn't needed once he was injured which actually was a blessing in disguise since he couldn't even manage close to a run a ball from the matches he played.

    If he was able to maintain an average SR of 110-115 at least fair enough but batting at a SR of 75 is the opposite of steady, cool and calm. In fact it is just as destructive as getting out for a duck first ball.

    im surprised by IU.

    They ended up picking up Ian Bell and yet dropped Misbah.

    As a captain Misbah would had been more effective at IU because there he was getting his team.

    Yes, for Zalmi getting this guy was a really smart move, but if Misbah had some say in the selections it could had been better.

    In zalmi Misbah wont have his say in team selection like he did in IU

    So United dropped Misbah for Ian Bell? Although Misbah does nothing with the bat but tactically he understands his opponents very well, especially in the PSL. Suicidal move by IU, Misbah did not deserve to be dropped if he was going to be replaced by Ian Bell.

    If Misbah felt aggrieved at their decision, he was more than welcome to join the draft and prove IU wrong. The fact he didn't speaks volumes.
    Looks like Misbah read my post and PZ fell for it

    Really? I have a lot of respect for Misbah but it actually made me sad watching him bat last year (especially against pace). Did not look like a fair fight and even Tymal Mills looked embarrassed at times.

    Stongly disagree with Saj.

    Misbah is 45 freaking years old, and is a slow player on top of that.

    Misbah to be honest was needed by LQ, not PZ.

    I think Hafeez and Harris were excellent signings and can go a few seasons. Misbah is finished I’m afraid

    Misbah had shambolic form for the previous two seasons.I don't understand why any team in the right mind will select him... he's declined at a rate of knots in the shortest format

    Lol Misbah will jump from Franchise to Franchise, might even up as a supplementary pick before he goes unpicked in the draft

    This is the same league that supports nepotism, of course they're going to have some brain dead signings here and there as well.

    A 46 year old member of cricket board committee manged to get himself selected in Zalmi at the cost of a youngster, nothing new about this man who always kept himself ahead of Pakistan cricket but no wonder Pakistan cricket is heading to wrong direction, shameful.
