It was a remarkable day for Pakistan to beat England in the heart of Lord's cricket ground by 75 runs. The victory came after a spell of 20 long years.

While performing brilliantly himself, Misbah scored a century at the age of 43 years in the first innings to go down in the history books being the oldest to score a ton. Not only him, another emerging bowler Yasir Shah took five wickets in the first innings and also broke a 20 years old record. Yasir was declared man of the match for bagging 10 wickets in both innings.





At the end of the match, the Pakistan team not only dedicated the victory to Abdul Sattar Edhi, the Pakistani philanthropist who died earlier this month, but also thanked Pakistan Army for arranging a rigorous pre-departure camp to keep the boys in super fit shape.

Misbah becomes oldest player in history to hit a century


Pakistan's disputed cricket team skipper Misbah, oft criticized for his age, has become the oldest man in the history of cricket to score a century at the age of 42 at Lords against England in the first test match being played between the two countries these days.

It may be a coincidence that this is Misbah's first ever century playing against England in England. He thus becomes the sixth oldest player in Test history to make a century. After scoring his 100, Misbah performed several press-ups, just as 73-year-old actor Jack Palance did when winning the Best Supporting Actor Oscar at the 1992 Academy awards.





It may be recalled that Misbah equaled West Indies' Vivian Richards´s then world record for the fastest-ever Test century in mere 56-ball hundred against Australia in Abu Dhabi in 2014 :a mark surpassed by Brendon McCullum´s 54-ball hundred for New Zealand against Australia at Christchurch in February.

However, due to increasing number of worshipers coming to the holy land, there are chances of one going missing or lost from his group or family in the rush of millions of people. Also last year's stampede that took a heavy toll of the worshipers made it difficult for the organizers to find and account for the missing.
