Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq was dismissed on 96 runs as he missed out on his career’s 11th Test century in the second Test match against West Indies which is being played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

He was dismissed by West Indian pacer Shannon Gabriel who had bowled a full on middle and leg stump delivery which Misbah tried to shuffle and flick. But the Pakistani skipper mistimed his flick and the ball hit him on his pads. He did go for the review, but the reply showed the same thing as the ball would have gone to hit the leg stump.

This is the third instance that Misbah has been dismissed in the nervous 90′s. The first instance was against New Zealand in Wellington when he was dismissed for the score of 99 of 207 deliveries by Chris Martin has the bowler trapped him in his pads. The second instance came against Sri Lanka at Dubai International Cricket Stadium when the Pakistani skipper was clean bowled by Rangana Herath when he was on 97 from 248 balls.
