Pakistan team knock out in the group stage day before yesterday so as WI today who lost the semi final against Srilanka by D/L method.
But what is going on all the way. Australia also came with the best team and not qualify for the Semi finals. English players were expected to go earlier and were not in top four but they played more worst by losing against Netherlands.
Not a single word utter by the media for so bad performance by Aussie and English players. And in Pakistan it is an opposite story. Yes Pakistanis are much passionate for Cricket than the other two but the working methodology for the betterment of cricket is not in the right direction as they have. Muhammad Hafeez dropped as a captain. I was very happy to see him doing captaincy for the second time. in T20 WC, because of a consistent decision and hoping to see him as a captain after 2015 when Misbah will retire.
I know many of you have their own likes and dis likes but Cricket is not all about this. If Cricket work in this way then after 2010 WC Kevin Pietersen become the captain of English Team, Mike Hussey of Australia’s, Gayle of West Indies and Shakib ul Hasan of Bangladesh. Then how Pakistan team is going like this once again a reverse gear of looking Shahid Afridi as the captain of Pakistan team. I know we play different cricket than allover the world but that doesn’t mean we should not follow the basics.
Players and Management should not accept his decision of step down from captaincy and not support him. I know his batting is not in form and was feeling the pressure. No body in Pakistan team is as spotless. Even Indian team has Virat Kholi who is the best batsman now on earth but see what is his role. Pakistan team should go for Hafeez, If this happen with Hafeez next will be Afridi then some one else and a cycle will go like this. Pakistan team must avoid this sort of attitude and must stick to the decision they stick else Cricket of Pakistan will suffer badly.
