Misbah-ul-Haq is now the oldest captain to score a Test Century


On 14th July 2016, Pakistan’s skipper Misbah-ul-Haq became the oldest player in Test cricket history to register a century. He achieved this feat against England, at the age of 42 years and 47 days surpassing former Australian cricketer Bob Simpson who was 41 years and 359 days old when he scored a hundred against India in 1978.

Misbah is also the oldest Test Centurion in 82 years after England’s Patsy Hendren who made a century against Australia aged 45 at Manchester’s Old Trafford in 1934.
