    We fans always have habit of putting down players we don't like only to realize their true worth after they are gone.

    This guy is diamond. Calm, collected and Reliable. Mr Consistent needs to be supported properly by supporters.

    He takes all the abuse from Media to fans yet he performs all the time and hardly complains. He took over the team when we lost our 2 premier fast bowlers and yet he turned the team into one solid unit.

    Great batsman.. Bad captain. Needs to up his Sr a bit.. His constant tuk tuk is his and the team's downfall.

    He always comes in after early collapse then he knows there is hardly any batting after him hence the cautious approach. He can easily play at higher strike and hit biggies if he wishes to but he needs good batters with him and after him.

    Wonderful knock. I'd love to have him in the team if he bats like this. But please, release captaincy.

    Highest scorer at what SR? Obviously when you're going to come in and try to play some "anchor" role without keeping in mind the total, you're going to stick around. He owes us at least that much.

    I have no idea what there is to cherish or what there is to applause. He came in a time of crisis, did he job, and should've left a year ago. Not still be around when he's score consistently at 60 SR and not even being able to chase scores of 220.

    BS. Do you not remember the 3rd ODI, his beautiful 17 off 35 or something? When he got out like an idiot. My butt he can easily play at a higher SR.

    He premeditates all his shots.

    I don't know what happen, but he plays like this once every 10 games, just like Afridi hits 40+ every 10 games.

    quite over rated tbh especially in odi format..personal performance are meaningless when team isn't winning.

    most of his runs came at a very low strike rate and has hardly helped the team tbh.. his captaincy is also quite poor in odis and has no contingency plan.

    also it was not him who took over Pakistan during that spotfixing saga, it was Afridi till Westindies tour in 2011.. Misbah was captain in only 4 tests during that time, so Afridi is equally responsible for taking us out of that dark phase.


    his record this year has been very good but unfortunately team results and team tactics have been very poor and defensive.

    He needs to find the middle gears. Needs to at least look for the singles. We got lucky that the match was shortened today. Knowing Misbah the RRR would have gone up to 9 if this was a 50 over match.

    Hafeez most likely. He's done well as captain in T20s. I'd rather a youngster though, Jamshed or Umar Akmal.

    Misbah is 10 times the player and captain than Hafeez. Hafeez needs to be dumped ASAP

    No one can premeditates "all" shots.

    I don't care how many 50s he's scored. That stat LITERALLY means nothing to me. What does it prove? That Misbah performs well in wins? What does that prove?

    Please, you know very well that that is not the only inning that I need to recall. So let's not bother with that. It was merely an example.

    Misbah is not Pakistan;s all time greatest batsman. Far from it. Not even in the top 30.

    I agree, Misbah is a much better player, but it's most likely Hafeez'll be captain. Looking purely at captaincy, Hafeez seems a better choice, look at the T20 WC 2012, India T20s, SA T20s. We did well in all of those. Misbah does need to give up captaincy, especially before 2015 WC and the Test Championship.

    Misbah, Afridi, and Umar are the 3 most polarizing figures in our team. People either love them or hate them, no rational middle ground.

    You are right. I personally think Misbah is more suited to finishers role than UA.

    yup it did.. He helped build that partnership wioth afridi.. Had he been out, Afridi would had been left not out, as the taileders coulnd't had survived.. In the next game, he revived us after a bad start.. he had to do all the scoring as Haris SOhail his partner was on Debut

    No. Misbah could never be a finisher. Have seen him give it all away too many times at the end. He gets out just when it's time to capitalize.

    Fine, but before Afridi came in what was he doing? 9 off 30 or something ridiculous.

    Yes, he isn't as consistent as Dhoni or Bevan but he is the best finisher we have. Others don't have temperament to be the "finisher".

    It became an absolutely different game with the overs reduced. Misbah in the past sticks around long enough to push the RRR to 9 but then gets out when it's time to make those runs. This time he had no choice but to attack from the word go.

    I think he gets under pressure and gets in his shell knowing there isn't much batting left after him.

    If he bats like he did today, he can make this team into a real powerhouse.

    If you take some sort of combo between average and SR Umar Akmal is easily the best bat.

    As for who I want to replace him? I don't care - Hafeez, Afridi, Misbah all three of them need to go.

    SR doesn't tell the whole story.. I score 5 runs of 2-3 balls, i easily get a strike rate of above 100.. Does that make me a legend?
