Fans accord warm welcome to victorious Misbah at Lahore airport

Misbah was warmly welcome here at the Allama Iqbal International Airport on Wednesday morning.

Misbah was welcomed by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials, including Director Cricket Operations Haroon Rashid, and his fans.

Flower petals were showered on Misbah-ul-Haq by the fans, garlands were put in his neck, and bouquet was presented to him to let him know that "cricket will miss you".

Younis' career batting average of 52.05 is also the best by any Pakistani batsman and the third best by any batsman from Asia.

Analysts Expect Chico's FAS, Inc
Peregrine Capital Management LLC purchased a new stake in shares of Chico's FAS during the third quarter worth about $14,307,000. Following the completion of the transaction, the insider now owns 153,260 shares of the company's stock, valued at $2,191,618.


Speaking on the occasion, Misbah said: "It is an unforgettable feeling and it will always remind me of calling it a day in a memorable way and I will always cherish these memories". He is also the first Asian captain to win three Test matches in West Indies.

Misbah returned from West Indies after leading Pakistan to maiden test series victory against the Caribbean side.

"The credit for this accomplishment goes to the Pakistan Cricket Board, the players' families, and the whole team", he added.

To a query, he said indeed it was an outstanding performance on part of the team to first time beat the West Indies in their own country.

Miss Hirst said Omar is mischievous and is capable of opening doors, kitchen cupboards, shower screens and wardrobes. But being Instagram-famous, or even world-famous, doesn't seem to be high on Omar's list of priorities.


Politicians and fans took to twitter to pay their tributes to the national team after the historic win, posting messages of love and praise for Misbah.

"I am thankful for myself, the team and all supporters of Pakistan cricket that we were able to pull it off", Misbah said.

Pondering over his recent milestone, Misbah said, "We have accomplished a feat many teams across the world only dream of".

He also expressed gratitude to the entire nation for their prayers and support.

In the third Test that burst to life only over the last two days, Pakistan left it until late as Man-of-the-Series leg-spinner Yasir Shah removed number 11 Shannon Gabriel with the final delivery of the penultimate over of the match, to break the hosts' stubborn resistance.
