Misbah-ul-Haq record of Fastest 50 in test
Misbah-ul-Haq is a former Pakistani cricketer and captain, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen in the history of Pakistani cricket. Misbah’s 50 runs came in a record-breaking 21 balls, breaking the previous record for the fastest fifty in Test cricket. Jacques Kallis held the previous record, having scored 50 runs in just 24 balls against Zimbabwe in Cape Town in 2005.
When Misbah arrived at the crease, Pakistan was leading by 461 runs and Azhar Ali was already on 66 runs after the fall of Younis Khan’s wicket. Misbah made Australia’s life difficult by scoring 22 runs off an over by Steven Smith, which ultimately helped him reach his fifty in 21 balls, breaking the previous record held by Jacques Kallis. He went on to score his hundred in just 56 deliveries. His and Azhar’s centuries helped Pakistan set a daunting target of 603 runs for Australia to chase in Abu Dhabi.
“I rate him highly as a batsman and I give him the credit for our performances because since he has started playing at No. 3, the kind of partnerships he gives makes it easier for us to go and play,” Misbah said.
