Misbah made his ODI debut in 2002 and had an illustrious career representing Pakistan in 162 ODIs, 75 Test matches, and 39 T20Is. His Test debut came in 2001.

He became the captain of the Pakistan cricket team in all formats and led the side in 87 ODIs, 56 Tests, and 15 T20Is. Under his captaincy, Pakistan achieved some notable victories.
