Misbah-ul-Haq, a captain in exile
Misbah-ul-Haq, in an exclusive interview with Nadeem F Paracha for the Dawn, opens up about his record as captain, his relationship with his team-mates, playing away from home, the past controversies which have rocked the team, and constantly being in the media spotlight which has affected his family.
I asked Misbah that isn't it strange that some former players, who understood the pressures of captaining a team like Pakistan, have continued to criticise him, considering the circumstances he was given the captaincy in? "I always welcome criticism. I'm not afraid of being criticised. But sometimes when it becomes criticism for the sake of criticism, I begin to ignore it," he explained.
