LAHORE - Discarded middle order batsman Misbahul Haq hammered patient double century in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match to remind the national selection committee that he still has cricket left in him. Misbah, who was playing at 153, and Usman Arshad 115, resumed the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited innings from an overnight total of 385 to lead the total 609 for six declared in 118.2 overs against Lahore Shalimar here at the Lahore City Cricket Association Ground on day two of the four-day group A match. Misbah said that with fitness and scoring runs he would dispel the impression that his increasing age is a bearer in the way of his career. He said that he has already gone through shocks of axing from the team but he would make his comeback by showing better form. In reply, Lahore were having hard times when five of its top batsmen were back in the dressing room with 158 runs on board and they are still a long way to go to avoid follow on. Asad Ali and Rizwan Akbar ripped throught the Lahore upper order taking three and two wickets respectively.
