Hanif Mohammad hails Misbah and Yasir after historic win

Shukriya Pakistan

Karachi: Former Test captain Hanif Muhammad said “Pakistan’s historic victory against England at the Lord’s Test is mainly due to Yasir Shah’s wonderful bowling and Misbah ul Haq’s excellent leadership.”

Hanif Muhammad in an interview at the end of Lord’s Test said “It’s a great honor for Pakistan to win against England by 75 runs at the Lord’s historical ground. Both the teams played very well in the first match of the series but Pakistan dominated against their rivals from the very beginning. Victory remained dependent on captain Misbah ul Haq’s correct decisions. His decision to bat first after winning the toss remained effective as he wanted to utilize Yasir’s capabilities.”

He further said, our other bowlers also played their role very well but the batsmen should have shown greater responsibility. Replying to a question Hanif Muhammad said “From the very beginning of the match I had predicted that Yasir will be the ‘match-winning bowler’ and he did prove his worth by getting 10 wickets in the match.”
