The present generation is largely unfocussed mate. That has been exposed second time running now.
Test team has stalwarts like Sachin, Dravid, Laxman who know the value of Indian cap. Let them go and we'll see a free fall as far as team's fortunes are concerned thanks to our selectors caught up in the glitter of so called rock stars.
Look at Yuvraj Singh, he has gained so much weight, is ungainly and has become a pain for any team that has him. He is good at only two things these days, party and sulk.
These are senior guys who ought to set standard for the youngsters. How can you expect them to be any different?
I have more respect for someone like Afridi in this regard. Yes, he is a cheat. He is an idiot. But nobody can blame for underperforming while playing for Pakistan.
I will be cheering for Pakistan in this tournament. Yes, I still believe they aren't one among the top 4 teams, but now that they've made it, they got to win it. That ought to shut up many critics including yours truly. :-)
