Former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Ejaz Butt doesn't appear to have forgotten his three-year-old dispute with flamboyant allrounder Shahid Afridi as he said that the former captain didn't deserve to be in the national team.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) sought to end the controversy surrounding the captaincy of the national team when it released a statement on behalf of all-rounder Shahid Afridi, in which he pledged full support to Misbah-ul-Haq declaring him best man to lead in World Cup.
Pakistan`s cricket board (PCB) have backed struggling test and one-day skipper Misbah-ul-Haq to lead the team at next year`s World Cup but have considered potential replacements should he decide to stand down from his role as captain.
The trouble-prone Pakistan cricket team dressing room was once again witness to some drama and it took PCB Chairman Shaharyar Khan's intervention to diffuse the controversy generated by Misbah-ul-Haq's decision to rest from the third ODI against Australia.
Pakistan's head coach, Waqar Younis said he has moved on from the 2011 World Cup semi-final defeat to India and was hopeful that his team will go all the way in the upcoming World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
The national selectors who are under fire for not showing up for the ongoing National T20 Championship matches here, want Test and ODI captain Misbah-ul-Haq to bat at number three position in the 50-over format.
