*Just to clarify guys NO captain has been announced for the World Cup when the 15 man squad was announced today. Afridi has been given the message that he has to perform now in the forthcoming series and lead well, otherwise he will be sacked. For now let's get behind him, however if the worst comes to the worst we always have a highly suitable alternative option. Let's see how our beloved Lala responds under pressure. Desperate times require desperate measures.*

*Guys IF Afridi gets an injury before the World Cup, there is a high chance it will be deliberately faked in order to try and save his reputation. I hope even if he is not captain for the mega event, he realises the value and importance of himself in the team and plays in the starting line up nonetheless. For now though he still has the captaincy in his hands for the forthcoming ODI series which commences on Saturday. Waqar Younis has strong disputes and rifts about him as a leader and to a large extent, so do I. At the end of the day we want what is best for Pakistan Cricket in the short and long term vision.*


  1. A good squad picked by the selectors. It would be nice if we could discuss the strengths and weakness of the 15 players picked in another post later on.

  2. Sure AA
    Agreed too about "good" squad

    By the way out of the preliminary 30 the following guys unfortunately did not get picked. They will naturally be disappointed at missing out, but am sure many of them are part of the future plans and will get their opportunities to represent their beloved nation in due course.
