New Delhi: During England's tour of UAE for a Test series against Pakistan in 2015, Misbah-ul-Haq produced a hilarious fake shot which sent both the English wicket keeper and slip fielder the wrong way.

Misbah was batting against England spinner Adil Rashid at 28 when the Pakistani skipper showed a glimpse of his presence of mind.

As the ball began to arrive at Misbah, he showed as if he is going to play a sweep shot. Seeing the batsman pre-determined to hit a specefic shot, James Anderson standing at slip quickly moved towards leg slip, with wicket keeper Jos Buttler also moving leg side in a flash in anticipation.

Misbah, however, quickly changed his mind after sensing the movement and instead produced a late cut with the ball racing towards the boundary through the slip area before being picked up by the fielder just before touching the ropes.
