    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    What a great day 29th January is for Pakistan

    3rd Test: Pakistan v India at Karachi, Jan 29-Feb 1, 2006 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    One of my most favourite test matches

    "Of course. If Inzi had come at one or two down, he would have been a different player. He would have had over 10,000 Test runs to his name. Unfortunately, he was always on the back foot, because he didnít believe in himself, which was his biggest problem." - Wasim Akram

    If only Imran managed to drill that into Inzy's head back in the 90s.

    Inzy didn't get to play too much with Imran. Only a year or so

    I know.. and that's why he didn't end up with 10000 test runs. If there is one thing the great man was good at, it was making players believe in themselves.

    Some new developments:

    Aqib Javed has quit his job as the Pakistan bowling coach and the PCB Chairman is thinking of making Afridi the ODI captain again.

    Hopefully the PCB will select Akram as the bowling coach. We desperately need him.

    Never in a million years would I have thought Brumby to admit this!!!!!!

    Wait what? Where are you hearing this? That would be a terrible idea if Misbah is still in the team (which I presume he will be). You can't have the Captain of the Test team playing second fiddle to the Captain of the ODI team. TERRIBLE IDEA.

    Wait. Pakistan are about to get whitewashed in the England ODIs. England is about whitewash Pakistan now right after. Speaks for itself that does.

    Pakistan need pace bowlers. Spinners are always bailing the team out.

    Afridi as ODI captain sounds ok to me.

    Misbah moves out of the ODI team and captaincy

    Afridi will become captain of the ODI side.Misbah will probabyl wave goodbye to ODIs altogether.Zaka Ashraf has hinted at building a team for 2015 and even though no one mentioned Misbah and Younis specifically,but both of are not going to be part of the ODI side till 2015.The fact that Asad and Azhar have done well on this tour will only reaffirm that.

    Afridi's homecoming marred by altercation. (Video contains NSFW language in Urdu).

    Afridi interview after the altercation

    The interview is in Urdu. To summarize, Afridi claims that there was inadequate security upon his arrival at the airport. He and his family were mobbed by fans and his daughter was apparently either stepped on or shoved by an overzealous fan trying to reach him. At this point he lost his temper and hit the fan. He apologized for losing his cool like that.

    I sympathize with him if thatís what really happened, but it does not look good for the potential future Captain of the ODI side to be getting into fan altercations.

    Edit: The fan who got beat up apparently understands Afridi's reaction and still loves him

    Any father would lose his cool in such a situation.I don't blame him.He has to deal with this himself on a daily basis.His family getting this has to be the last straw.Fans in Pakistan are rowdy,and sure they do it out of love for the players,but the player himself can only tolerate stuff like this to an extent.And Afridi isn't someone who has a history of fan altercation.I think there was one such issue previously,but i don't remember whether it was Afridi or someone else.He's generally very cordial with fans.

    Either way,the bottom line is that he is the most famous cricketer in the country right now,and gets mobbed everytime he steps out in the public.Yes he has the responsibility of being a superstar on his shoulders,but he's human.Tons of other celebrities lose their cool in public at times.It's not pretty,but it's natural.Anyman would lose his cool if your daughter gets shoved around.This is just a one off incident and i won't read too much into it.

    But thank our mentally deranged media for multiplying every issue 10 times,and then sensationalizing it.****tards.

    That's just horrible. Why can't these idiots just control themselves. Thank God that his daughter is OK and that nothing worse happened.
