Pakistan’s other outgoing champion, Misbah looked a shadow of himself against Australia last summer but still exits with 870 runs at a tick under 40 in his final season. At the age of 43, that’s an extraordinary achievement.
He started the voting period with a century against England at Lord’s, but didn’t reach three figures again. However he did notch 99s in consecutive Tests against the West Indies — allowing him to leave the game with a record three scores off 99. Never been done before. That’s a legacy, right?
