The International Cricket Council (ICC) will present the ICC Test Championship mace to Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq. Pakistan team climbed to the number spot last month after the recently concluded Test series against England. The Test series between Pakistan and England ended in a draw and Pakistan team climbed to the top spot after winning the fourth and last Test match.
This is probably the first time when ICC will award mace twice in a year as the Australian team, on July 25, received the Test champion mace in Pallekelle bu virtue of being on the top spot at cut off date i.e. 31 April. Along with that, they were also presented US$1million.
The event will take place at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore on 21 September, Wednesday at 10:30 PST.
ICC chief executive David Richardson will award the winning captain Misbah-ul-Haq with the mace. It is expected that the full Pakistan squad, selectors, coaches and PCB President Shahryar Khan will also present at the event.
