But that was all done under the watch full eye of PCB so can't blame anyone else for that,

So basically they are awarding them selves for not getting involved in fixing or not getting caught :jf

Well deserved, truly worthy of attaining thus honour.

Btw, why on earth did Afridi win ?
 
Is Saeed Anwar or Saeed Ahmed?

It's Saeed Ahmad one of the best number 3 batsman for Pakistan who played in 60s and also captained Pakistan. His brother Younis Ahmed also played for Pakistan.

Haters gonna' hate :D
 
Well done Misbah truly deserve. Afridi and Younus also received this award 4 years ago.
 
W65L35 having a heart attack.

But on the topic, if there is one guy that deserves it, it's Misbah.

And glad to see his services being recognized by real people and not pubescent teens.

Not really, he has a made a DVD copy of the event in 2010 when Afridi got the award.
 
Misbah-ul-Haq to be conferred with Pakistan Civil award

Teenage rights activist Malala Yousafzai and national cricket captain Misbah-ul-Haq, along with 103 others, would be conferred with Pakistan’s Civil Awards in recognition of services rendered to the nation.

President Mamnoon Hussain had approved 105 Civil Awards on August 14 last year and 10 more were approved as special cases.

He would confer the National Civil Awards on 39 individuals, including five foreigners, at the investiture ceremony to be held at Aiwan-e-Sadr, an official statement said.

Malala and slain Pakistani student Aitezaz Hassan will be awarded the Sitara-i-Shuja’at for gallantry.

The 16-year-old human rights crusader, who now lives in Britain following extensive medical treatment, was shot by a Taliban gunman in 2012 over her outspoken views on children’s education in her home region in northwest Pakistan.

Malala would be conferred the award in London by the Pakistan mission there. Pakistan cricket captain Misbah-ul-Haq will be recognised with the President’s Award for Pride of Performance for his services to sports.

Young television reporter Wali Khan Babar, who was shot dead in 2011, will be posthumously awarded the Pride of Performance award. The day began with a 31-gun salute in the federal capital and 21-gun salute in provincial capitals on occasion of Pakistan Day.

Pakistan Day is being celebrated all across the country to mark the passage of the Lahore Resolution that led to the creation of Pakistan.

The national flag was hoisted on important public and private buildings across the country and all Pakistani missions abroad. Incidentally, Jammat-ud-Dawah, also organised rallies across the country.

Well done to a faithful and humble servant of the nation
 
Deserves it. Legendary batsman, humble personality and a true gentleman.
 
He's looking pretty rough there, must have been out all night celebrating
 
Well deserved Misbah.

Becoming the first Asian captain to win a ODI series in SA is worthy of this alone.
 
Re: Misbah to receive Pride of Performance award

Finally, some recognition.
 
Damn Misbah looks like he's been through the stress of a war zone...

Which I suppose is the equivalent of two Akmal careers.
 
Absolute rubbish posts deleted. Post quality for some posters needs to improve very soon.
 
BTW. Is this pride of Pakistan award also called nishan-e-pakistan? Pls can someone clarify?

No, they are different awards but do you see that haggard, weary, thousand yard blank stare on Misbah's face when you look at the photo Major posted?

That is also known as "Nishaan-e-Pakistani Captaincy" :misbah2
 
Man even when he does tuk-tuk I have a certain love for this guy. Congrats to him! Hope he does well in WC 2015.

ROFL. Cracked me up!
 
He's a very strong character - I honestly don't think anyone else in our team handles pressure the way he does, on and off field.

Captaincy, in Pakistan, is as thankless a job as can be. You will always be undermined in favour of flashier players. You barely get the credit where its due. And you'll have to listen to people who once worked with you, bash you right, left and centre, continuously. Whilst being insecure of your position/staff because our board is a joke.

IMO Shoaib/Moyo as pundits have exacerbated things - everyone knows cricket (like all sports) is a zero-sum game. Your loss is my gain. Unfortunately, these so-called pundits have taken things at a personal level, and are doing the game/team much more harm than they think.

He will be sorely missed when he retires. And I pray, completely against the odds, we win the WC2015 just to see this guy being rewarded for his endless patience!

We need more people like him (personality-wise) not just in the team, but in our country as well. King Misbah, indeed :14:
 
He is a class act. Well deserved award and recognition for his services to Pakistan.
 
Oh wow, congratulations Misbah! You're amazing. :D Ajmal should get one too though.

Misbah looks like he just got out of jail with the stubble. :p Or is that just me?
 
Happy for Misbah. Despite being the shining light during Pak's lows in last couple of years, he is the one that copes all the flak.

This should shut his haters for a while.

King Misbah
 
He is in Rahul Dravid and Tendu's category when it comes to respecting the sport and the opposition. Well deserved :14:
 
Huge honor and richly deserved :14:

Look above shaz brah...how many quality posters aren't around anymore ^


On topic Misbah the captain in tests will be missed dearly once he retires. He is no doubt an awful tactician who has a weird obsession with oldies but as a man manager, he's probably rivalling the great Khan himself. It's testimony to the fact that his lack of controversy and go about it approach was teh reason Pak reached the #1 rank. I wouldn't be surprised if test cricket becomes a controversial circus once again for Pakistan...
