Misbah-ul-Haq scored a century in the 1st inns of the ongoing Test between Pakistan & England at Lord's. While doing so he entered a very elite club of cricketers who are the oldest centurions in Test cricket.

Any idea who is the oldest cricketer to score a Test century & where does Misbah stand in the all time list? Answers to these and much more in this video...

Have a look!

There must be some English

There must be some English players on this list as they used to play into late 30s and upto early 40s.
Pure guess at a few English openers...Boycott, Gooch, Hobbs, Sutchcliffe? No confidence all guesses here

During Packer World Series Time, I know Bob Simpson was asked to come out of retirement and captain Australia. He was over 40 and I thought he made at least 1 century and is Australia's oldest centurion. That would be my other guess.
