Pakistan Test captain Misbahul Haq scored a century off just 34 balls in an exhibition match in Oslo, Norway while playing against former teammates.

After leading the national side to a remarkable 2-2 series draw against England on their home soil recently, the experienced middle-order batsman is on a short break before his national duty resumes with team Pakistan when West Indies will tour Unite Arab Emirates in October.

Taking part in a charity game at the Bislett Stadium in Oslo, the 42-year-old smashed 12 towering sixes on the way to an exceptional hundred in the exhibition match which was a part of the ‘Play for Peace’ festival.

Pakistan’s most successful Test captain’s knock also included three huge sixes off former pacer Mohammad Asif, who was banned for spot-fixing scandal during Pakistan’s 2010 tour of England, and a streak of five consecutive maximums off the bowling of a local player.

Asif’s side also featured the likes of Abdul Razzaq and Mohammad Yousuf, but they were powerless to stop a rampant Misbah on the matting wicket.

    And yet you complain about his batting speed. Misbah is the best thing that happened to Pakistan cricket. Recommend
