Barbados Tridents have announced Pakistan Test captain, Misbah-ul-Haq, as the replacement for Shoaib Malik in the ongoing Caribbean Premier League, after the latter was called up to the Pakistan One-Day squad to face Sri Lanka.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq has stated that his side’s win over South Africa during the league stage has given the Asian side confidence ahead of their World Cup quarter-final against Australia in Adelaide on Friday.
Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq, whose side is set to face Australia in the quarter-final of the 2015 World Cup, stated that the pressure would be squarely on the tournament co-hosts when the two sides clash on Friday at the Adelaide Oval.
First-class cricketer Jibran Khan Niazi pays tribute to Misbah-ul-Haq following Pakistan's recent Test series win over Australia and argues that he now deserves to play an even bigger role in Pakistan cricket.
Misbah-ul-Haq has scored the quickest half-century in Test cricket and followed that up by equalling Sir Viv Richards' record of a 56-ball century on day four of the second Test against Australia in Abu Dhabi.
