A matter of stats: Will Misbah’s men make history at Lord’s?
“Ghar ki murghi daal barabar”
This is a very common saying in Pakistan. In the literal sense it means “chicken made at home is equivalent to lentils” ─ and I don’t need to get into what it implies.
What I will get into is that the same term of ‘endearment’ can also be applied to Pakistan’s Test team.
Ranked No. 3 in the world, Pakistan is unbeaten in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and boasts the second best win-loss ratio among all Test playing nations since October 2010, the second best win-loss ratio at home since October 2010, and the second best win-loss ratio away from home since October 2010.
Misbah’s men have achieved all of this without playing a single Test in their own country.
