I still maintain that Mr '' tuk tuk'' has no place in the one day squad.There is a inherent problem with Misbah and that is, he can't score fast. Even in the Test match he can at best help his team to draw the game rather than wining it. I have no personal grudge against the gentleman but time has come for him to say goodbye to cricket and make place for a younger player.
