Pakistan‘s Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq‘s popularity has gone to the next level in the recent days. Not because he took his team to the top spot in ICC Test ranking, infact, there is no such big reason behind it but it was just a random one. He is surely among the most popular sportsperson in Asia and was recently mentioned in a television series ‘Newsroom’of United States of America. Misbah’s name was mentioned in a scene, where Jerry Dantana, producer of Atlantis Cable News (ACN), was reading translated tweets and finds the name of Misbah-ul-Haq. Jerry asked for details from his colleague and came to know that he is a well known cricketer.

It’s the same series in which Indian actor Dev Patel is also a part of it, who was the lead actor in Oscar wining movie Slumdog Millionaire. The series in which Misbah’s name got mentioned is an American television political drama series created and written by Aaron Sorkin. Well, this surely speaks about the popularity of Misbah and where it has reached now. The series includes the cast of Jeff Daniels as anchor Will McAvoy, who, together with his staff set out to put on a news show in the face of corporate and commercial obstacles and their own personal entanglements .

Since Misbah has decided not to retire soon and will play few more years, his popularity graph will surely keep rising.
