Misbah-ul-Haq's determined fight in Pak-India Test match in Calcutta

While Kamran Akmal finally stood up to be counted as a contributor for Pakistan in Calcutta, the person that continues to impress me with his great skill and temperament is Misbah-ul-Haq. In addition to his cool demeanor, the other key attribute that sets Misbah apart from his team-mates is his level of formal education. I have heard that he has two Masters degrees and worked and played for Khan Research Labs. Like another well-educated and successful Pakistani cricketer Imran Khan, Misbah is also a Niazi from Mianwali. Cricket is a game of skill and mind. It seems to me that it does help to succeed in cricket if you have had a good education. Let's hope we get better educated players selected to play for Pakistan. While it shouldn't be the only criterion for selection, education should be give significant consideration.

    “With all my privilege and profile, I often wonder if this is going to be the year they round us up, if this is the year they’re going to put Trump’s Muslim registry into action, if this is going to be the year they ship us all off,” Riz Ahmad said back in 2019 at Creative Artists Agency's Amplify Conference. “The representation of Muslims on screen — that feeds the policies that get enacted, the people that get killed, the countries that get invaded.”…
