If one goes overs Misbah’s profile, you will often come across his bowling stats in international cricket. 24 balls 30 runs, those are his bowling stats. You always wonder when did Pakistan’s most successful captain ever bowl? 
It takes a couple of searches on YouTube or Google to find a very grainy video in which a “young” Misbah bowling against Zimbabwe.

The video starts with the ball going towards long on, and Misbah receiving it back to bowl another. Misbah comes in running in a typical Punjabi Pehlwan fashion, with his heavy upper body, even his bowling run up and action has a very sedated outlook.

Nevertheless, he does get an edge on the ball, but due to his bad luck the keeper is Kamran Akmal

This is the not only occasion where he bowled. In a recent Norway premier league (NPL), Misbah was thrown to ball. In a much-cleared video, we see a bearded Misbah run in as a Punjabi pehlwan while throwing in his leg spin but with a much pacey version as his fastest test century
