Misbah is definitely a stableheaded person and has probably the right kind of temperament for the leadership, but in my opinion doesnot deserve to be a part of ODI and T20 squad. So both Ramiz and Saad are on the mark as far as Misbah's place in the shorter formats is concerned.

since to starting of 2011 and almost towards its mid, Afridi was the captain. so Misbah's captaincy should not be credited for "stability" since 2011

Shafqat Rana actually dismissed Saeed Ajmal's talent about ten years back when Ajmal was introduced by one of the cricketers from Faisalabad and given an opportunity in the nets.
