Just got news that Afridi will be leading Pak.
Good move imo. Afridi was by far the best choice from the current squad.
Be VERY AFRIDI!!
Just why arent Pakistan favs this time around??
I dont get it, they have reached finals twice, won once and posses the best t20 record going around. The balance in that side is incredible.
Obviously they are severely lacking in the test department and also the odi to a certain extent.
But consider this, pretty much the exact same world cup winning team from last year will be going into the tournament with the addition of Umar Akmal and Mohammad Asif this time around. They actually looked unbeatable against tremendously in form teams in the later stages of the tournament.
You never felt South Africa or Sri Lanka had a chance with the way Pakistan was playing in the later stages.

RIP Craigos. Owe you a beer.:(
Pakistan in batting order.
P.S. I would take Sami over Gul considering his current T20 form.

With Steve Smith doing some bowling, and you have Brett Lee to come back in. Bollinger would be competing with him as well as McKay and Harris to get a game. And there seems to be a general reluctance to play Hauritz in this format, and especially if the grounds in the WI are to be small. Ponting didn't even use Hauritz for his full allotment of overs in a lot of the ODI games in NZ with concerns over the size of grounds, let alone T20 cricket.
Taking Tait instead of Bollinger is like quitting a full time corporate job to take up gambling as a profession.
Looking at the IPL India should take Manish Pandey and Uthappa or at least Pandey. Raina needs to do more.
Saurabh Tiwary too.
With Yuvraj it is a big gamble at the moment.
Channels clamouring for Tendulkar to play T20 WC.
I don't see Sachin playing the WC. But will be happy wth this line up
Yuvraj (Think we should give him some time, he has just come back from injury)
A overdose of spin for the slow tracks of WI.
