FARMAN ALI | 9 years ago | Reply | Recommend I dont understand why Misbah is playing. on what basis is he there in the team.even the selectors are not capable of ther job as a selector. due to misbah we lost to world cups and lost it both to India. he should at least learn how to bat in situation and must learn from his sons like Rain and Kohli.......he is such a waist.
