Pakistan’s most successful Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq Wednesday received a wonderful welcome at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport on his return from West Indies after the historic series victory.

Misbah arrived in Lahore along with his family, and Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) officials including Director Cricket Operations Haroon Rashid and his fans welcomed him at the airport.

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’. Misbah-ul-Haq and his wife also seemed happy by witnessing the wonderful welcome.

Misbah also talked to media and expressed his happiness and satisfaction over the last match of his international career. He said he will never forget the historic victory that ultimately won Pakistan the series, and thanked the Almighty Allah. He also praised the efforts of whole team in achieving this feat.

It is worth mentioning here that Misbah-ul-Haq became the first ever captain of Pakistan to win a Test series against the West Indies on their home soil by defeating them in the third match of the series. Pakistan brushed aside the Windies 2-1 in three-match series.
