The man from Mianwali (aged 42 years, 46 days) became the oldest captain to ever score a Test ton by eclipsing Australia's Bob Simpson (aged 41 years, 359 days) who had managed the feat against India in Adelaide.

The oldest player to score a Test century for 82 years in his first Test at the 'home of cricket' Lord’s. Not since England's Patsy Hendren made a century against Australia aged 45 at Manchester's Old Trafford ground back in 1934 had an older player scored a Test hundred.

The right-hander became the sixth oldest centurion in Test cricket after Jack Hobbs, Patsy Hendren, Warren Bardsley, Dave Nourse and Frank Woolley.

Only one older visiting batsmen than Misbah to score more than fifty runs in Tests in England. Warren Bardsley had posted 193* at the same venue in 1926.

Four batsmen with over 1000 Test runs after turning 40. Misbah needs just 19 more runs to move past Tom Graveney into third place.

Seventh Pakistani batsmen who have scored a hundred at Lords. Apart from him, Javed Burki, Nasim-ul-Ghani, Hanif Mohammad, Mohsin Khan, Inzamam ul Haq, Mohammad Yousuf have also done the same.

With eight centuries, Misbah also goes past Inzamam for most Test hundreds by a Pakistan captain.

Fourth Pakistani captain to score fifty-plus runs during maiden Test innings in England. Misbah joined Hanif Mohammad, Javed Miandad and Inzamam ul Haq to achieve this feat.

77% of Misbah-ul-Haq's Test runs have come as captain i.e. 3450 runs in 4458 total runs.

Two number of fifth wicket partnerships at Lords for Pakistan greater than his 148-run stand with Asad Shafiq.

Seven century stands between Misbah and Shafiq for the fifth wicket in Test matches which was the most by any pair. The record had previously belonged to Ricky Ponting and Steve Waugh with six such partnerships.

Seven consecutive tosses won by Pakistan under him which was the most in their Test history.

69 total uninterrupted months for Misbah as skipper which was the longest unchanged stint in Pakistan’s Test history. Their inaugural captain Abdul Hafeez Kardar had 66 months at the helm.
