Misbah becomes most capped Test captain of Pakistan

Misbah-ul-Haq has became the most-capped Test captain for Pakistan beating the recording of Imran Khan.

This was the 49th time in a Test match with Misbah as the captain as it faced the West Indies in Sharjah.

Imran Khan had captained Pakistan in 48 Test matches between 1982 and 1992 winning 14 and losing 8, while 26 matches were drawn.

Javed Mianded captained the country in 34 matches of which Pakistan won 14, lost 6 and draw 14 matches.

The 42-year-old Misbah was appointed captain in 2010. He is also the most successful Test captain as under him Pakistan have won 24 matches, lost 13 and drawn 11 matches.

Pakistan was ranked sixth when he received the captaincy but managed to reach the top of the ranking earlier this year until they lost the position to India.

The most-capped captain in the world is former South African cricketer Graeme Smith who led in 109 matches from 2003 to 2014.
