Pakistanis share a bond with the national cricket team which probably no other country does. We love our national team, we hate our national team and we cannot live without our national team. However, in this tug-of-war of feelings during wins and loses, our feelings for one player always remain constant – Murshad-e-Pak, Misbah-ul-Haq.

We are not even over the feeling of being the top test cricket team in the world and now Captain Misbah becomes the first ever Pakistani player to win ICC Test Championship Mace.
To top it all off, Misbah was awarded the prestigious trophy in Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium by ICC Chief Executive, David Richardson.
“There can’t be a better location to receive the ICC Test Championship mace than this ground where we last played a home Test seven years ago,” said Misbah. “It is ironic for both the players as well as the fans that the journey to the number-one position has been outside Pakistan.
