ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shehryar Khan on Thursday complimented Test Captain Misbah-ul-Haq calling him a greater captain than Imran Khan.
Appearing before the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Inter-Provincial Coordination, the PCB chairman said that Misbah was better captain than World Cup winning captain Imran Khan.
“I am not saying with any political inclinations, but on performance. I do not have any political affiliations,” he said but was quick to admit the Imran was a greater political personality.
“Misbah is a much better captain than Imran Khan, although Imran is a bigger political personality.”
He said that the statistics prove that Misbah was a greater captain, though necessarily a better player than him.
“I respect Misbah as a person and am impressed by what he has achieved as a captain, and his statistics and wins are testament to his achievements.”
Shahryar Khan refused to answer over Javed Miandad calling him a ‘great player’ but that he would not say much about him.
Misbah is currently playing his farewell Test series against the West Indies in the Caribbean. He took over the captaincy in 2010 and led in a total of 55 Test matches, winning 25, losing 18, and drawing 11 matches.
