Captaincy can be a hard job for any player, especially if you have to assume the leadership of teams like India and Pakistan. The fans are especially demanding and always expect the team to do well in all conditions. Therefore, it is no surprise that Pakistan have had 34 Test captains in their 75-year history.
Amongst these 34 players, the likes of Imran Khan, Misbah-ul-Haq and Javed Miandad have had the opportunity to lead the team for a good number of years with success. On the other hand, great players like Zaheer Abbas and Hanif Mohammad have wilted under the pressure, emphasising the fact that great players do not always make great leaders.
In this video, we look at the most successful Pakistan Test captains based on the number of Test victories they’ve achieved.
