Irfan got special praise from the skipper. "Irfan is a kind of bowler, if somebody has not faced him before he might find him difficult to play in such conditions."
The 40-year-old added batting was not easy as it was a two-paced wicket and he had difficulties in timing the ball. "Pitch wasn't easy. It was holding up, it was a bit two-paced. When I went there I found it really difficult to rotate the strike," Misbah said. "I was thinking if we could get to 250-260 it would be really challenging, because we had five regular bowlers but it wasn't to be. But thankfully the bowlers pulled it off."
