Pakistan test captain Misbah Ul Haq is leading the Federal side in the Pakistan cup and at this moment, his team is not doing so much well in the tournament. They have lost two games out of three and in order to make it to the finals they will have ton the rest of their games. In the last game which they lost to Sindh, Misbah at the presentation ceremony said that it was a tough game. Sindh openers took the game away from them after scoring a massive opening partnership. Misbah said that Khurram Manzoor is in a good batting form and as a result he is getting a lot of runs in this tournament so far and once the openers give a team a good start then there is always a chance that they will end up well after their 50 overs.
He said that his top order is failing to repeat such performances. In all the game Federal has played so far there if no 50 runs stands between the openers. The likes of Kamran Akmal, Sharjeel Khan and Nasir Jamshed at number three have yet to prove their mark.
Misbah when asked about his role he said that the only advantage that you get when wickets fell at the top is that you have plenty of overs to play. But from the team’s point of view, it is not something one can like a lot. There is always pressure and hence, one has to play a long innings from the middle order. Misbah is right here, every time he has to walk into the crease we see the team struggling with 3 to 4 wickets down
