Subject : Cricket legends heap praise on Misbah, Younis
Former cricketing greats hailed the retiring duo of Misbah ul Haq and Younis Khan as great ambassadors of the game and wished them all the best ahead of their new innings of post-retirement life. Test cricketers Ramiz Raja, Saqlain Mushtaq, Rashid Latif, Mohammad Wasim and Shahid Afridi piled praise on the duo for leading Pakistan to countless victories at home and away and making Pakistan a top team. “I congratulate Misbah ul Haq and Younis khan for leaving a great legacy behind them and retiring at their own terms,” Ramiz Raja told Geo.tv from Dominica where he was commentating in the Pakistan vs West Indies series, which the visitors won 2-1. “Younis remains a great sportsman, a great batsman and a great ambassador of the game. He was a selfless superstar,” Ramiz said while commenting on the career of Pakistan’s most successful batsman, who retired with 10,099 runs to his name – the most by any Pakistani. Ramiz added that Misbah deserves credit for giving a cricket compass to Pakistan team and bringing the team out of darkness.

He also praised the family of both the players. “Your family also deserves credit for your success because they sacrificed a lot, hope that the duo will be able to spend quality family time after retirement,” he added. Former captain Rashid Latif said that Pakistan will always remember the services of Misbah and Younis and it won’t be easy for the team to fill the vacuum left after their retirement. “Both have done great services for Pakistan cricket. Pakistan will miss them and the vacuum won’t be easily filled, I will personally miss the presence of Younis and Misbah in Pakistan team. Pakistan will always remember their services,” Rashid said in an exclusive video message. Rashid, one of only four Pakistani captains to win the last match of their career, added that the duo of Misbah and Younis have done great wonders for Pakistan and won several matches for the team. Magician spinner and inventor of 'doosra' Saqlain Mushtaq said that entire nation is proud of the duo. “We are proud of them, they’re legends of Pakistan cricket and have led Pakistan to so many victories,” Saqlain said in an exclusive video message.

“All my prayers and wishes for them, they have done a lot of good for Pakistan cricket. I pray for them and wish them all the best,” he added. Former batsman Mohammad Wasim said that Younis is a great name in Pakistan cricket and his stats are reflection of his greatness. “Younis Khan's stats are a reflection of his career. He has not only won for Pakistan but also helped his co-players, he is a true team man,” Wasim said. Former captain and all-rounder Shahid Afridi also paid tribute to both the players and urged PCB to utilise the outgoing duo for improvement of domestic cricket. “We always talk about improving domestic cricket, these two have been playing domestic cricket regularly and know inside-out the problems faced by our domestic cricketers,” Afridi said. “PCB should leverage their experience for improving the domestic cricket structure,” Afridi added. The legendary duo also received praise from cricketers from around the world. Quetta Gladiators' and former England batsman Kevin Pietersen paid tribute to Misbah and Younis in a video message.
