The legend of Pakistan Test Cricket, Misbah-ul-Haq made his debut at the magnificent ground of Lord’s today at the age of 42. It could not have been better. Quaid Misbah scored a century and not only that, he finished it with the greatest possible celebration one could expect from a 42-year-oldd.
The best celebration ever
Misbah did not one, two or three but ten push ups after he scored a century in his first game at Lord’s.

You cannot just deny this
Not just at Lord’s. This is possibly the best celebration anywhere in the world for a 42 year old. 10 PUSH UPS AT THIS AGE, RIGHT AFTER YOU SCORE A HUNDRED IS NO JOKE.
Best 100 celebration I've ever seen at Lords :')

And King Misbah left us emotional
We are not crying. There is something in our eyes.
SCREW YOU I'M NOT CRYING YOU'RE CRYING

One thing wrong about this country is that even a guy like Misbah has haters. But he answers them every single time with his bat.

Age doesn’t even matter to this legend
The oldest captain to score a test hundred. Achieving something even our youngsters cannot.
At the age of 42y, 47d, Misbah ul Haq also becomes oldest captain to score a Test century, surpassing Bob Simpson who made 100 aged 41y 359d

OH WHO ARE WE KIDDING LETS SEE THE CELEBRATIONS AGAIN
And Harsha Bhogle speaks the truth
What are we going to do without you, Misbah?
When the next gen of Shahzads and Akmals come by, Misbah will still be not out at the other end…….

Don’t forget the push ups
Don’t you just love how Misbah answers his haters like this in the best possible way?
Doubters; "Misbah is 42 & past it" – "Misbah doesn't have the reflexes to play in Eng".
Misbah; Scores a 100 in his first test inn in ENG

Not just Misbah, we all have contributed more than that guy
Misbah has contributed more to Pakistan than President of Pakistan.

Misbah is someone to whom we owe a great part of our lives. The guy gives this country so much at times no one else does. Stood alone like a wall while others came and went but he was there still going strong. If it wasn’t for him, our whole team would last as long as Shahid Afridi on the crease!
