Leading the national side

There has been a lot of confusion around for who should lead the national side? It's the 5th or 6th time in current administration's tenure people are talking about captaincy change. PCB thinks Misbah-ul-Haq is the best choice, fans like Shahid Afridi and team coach Waqar Younis wants to groom young captain. Waqar believes that he [Misbah] is very fit and has done very well as captain but age usually catches up, so we need to groom a young captain. “Every cricketer who leaves is missed, like Imran Khan, Wasim Akram and then myself were missed and, of course, Afridi will also be missed,” Waqar said. “But there are other youngsters who will take their place.”

First of all, let's talk about Shahid Afridi, who was the captain of one-day until recently, refused to play under the administration of chairman Ijaz Butt. He is fan's favourite only. Nothing else ! I also talked about his callowness in the past. The former skipper has got nothing, but fans' backing. Shahid Afridi has played 325 ODIs scoring 6695 runs at an average of 23.49. For fans, he is a spellbinder due to his ‘combative’ style against every bowler of World Cricket and sometimes in captaincy as well. And latter is the reason why I hate him.

Misbah-ul-Haq took over that captaincy of Test after the dramatic exits of Shahid Afridi, who retired in Australia Test, and Salman Butt, who was involved in spot-fixing scandal in England tour in 2010. With Afridi refusing to play under the current administration headed by chariman Ijaz Butt, Misbah-ul-Haq is set to lead the national side in all three forms of the game from now on. Misbah-ul-Haq has appeared in 78 ODIs scoring 2225 with highest of 93* at an average of 42.78; much better than braggart Shahid Afridi. I agree Misbah-ul-Haq played too much slowly in World Cup semi, but what Shahid Afridi did there? Fans like the idea of one captain for all formats of the game, and Afridi can't be the captain of all the formats. Whereas Misbah-ul-Haq has the ability to lead the national side in all  formats of the game. So, Pakistan must continue with a mature captain and he is one and only, in the current national squad, Misbah-ul-Haq.

Geoff Lawson, Pakistan former coach, believes that Misbah-ul-Haq is the only one who has the superlative capability to lead the national side. “He has a statesman-like demeanour which so many Pakistan captains have lacked and he handles adversity analytically not emotionally. He knows how to get the best out of players and he is a winner, note his outstanding domestic record as a leader.” Geoff Lawson on Misbah-ul-Haq, October 2010

Misbah leads from the front, and to do so for a feeble team, it is admirable. Pakistan former captain, Wasim Akram, has also acknowledged Misbah-ul-Haq's ability to lead the national side saying "Though Misbah has just a year or a half left in his career, but he is better choice for the captaincy".

I don't know why people hate such a wonderful guy? It's not Misbah's fault of what happened to Shahid Afridi or how Afridi behaved in the crunch moments. Misbah is a man with such wide ranging qualities (also holds a MBA in business management) that he could easily take up the coaching role or a board position once he retires form playing. There is no reason to hate your own player, and a player with matchless capabilities should be backed up to the hilt.

Wahab, Asad break social silence

Fast bowler Wahab Riaz and batsman Asad Shafiq break the social silence by using their Twitter accounts. For a moment, they might have thought that Twitter wasn't a social site :), but It'd be a bitter pill to swallow for both as Twitter is also a social website with more than 58 million monthly visits.

The new contract include a clause for 'no use of social websites while on tour'. "There was no fine or anything, they were just told to not tweet anything. There is a ban on social networking tools under the revised player code of conduct on tours so both were breaking it in a sense. But as they weren't tweeting cricket-related stuff it wasn't a big issue," a board official told ESPNcricinfo, cricket website.

PCB actually barred the players in the aftermath of Zulqarnain Haider controversy. Haider fled to UK to seek an asylum, though largely untraceable, kept the public informed through this status at one of the social networking site, Facebook.

Wahab Riaz even uploaded his photo from the team bus, but It was later removed from his twitter account. Under the new central contract, PCB has strictly prohibited the players from using social websites (Facebook, Twitter, Orkut e.t.c)

"Since it was their first offence they were reprimanded but if they do it again they will face heavy fines and may be suspension from some matches," the source said. Riaz and Shafiq have been the leading performers for Pakistan so far in the series.
