Censured Misbah proves his mettle


ABU DHABI:(APS) Misbah-ul-Haq took over legends Imran Khan and Javed Miandad as Pakistan’s most successful Test captain on Thursday after his men outclassed the Kiwis by 248 runs in the first game of a three-match Test series being played at the Zayed International Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi.


Under Misbah’s captaincy, this is Pakistan’s 15th Test win whereas both Imran Khan and Javed Miandad had led the country to 14 Test wins each.


The victory comes as Pakistan produced a ruthless performance by setting a mammoth 566/3 in the first innings and dismissed the New Zealand batting lineup at 262, taking a massive lead of 304 runs.


Once again Misbah chose not to enforce the follow-on and the greenshirts continued their excellent batting form to declare its second innings at 175/2, leaving the Kiwis to chase a daunting target of 480.
