Pakistan's flamboyant allrounder Shahid Afridi has said that the captaincy issue of the national one-day team for the World Cup should be laid to rest as Misbah-ul-haq was the best choice to lead the side in the mega event.
Former PCB chairman and Pakistan's nominee for the post of International Cricket Council (ICC) President, Najam Sethi has disclosed how he had to take a firm stand to prevent Misbah-ul-Haq from being removed as captain this year.
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.
Pakistan`s Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi said Monday the team`s senior cricketers should be given dignified farewells, after veteran batsman Younis Khan was unceremoniously axed from the one-day squad.
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.
