    Some sort of turmoil in Pakistan due to match-fixing.

    Big news!

    Seriously this is a small-scale scandal by recent standards.

    It'll be interesting to see who takes over the Test captaincy. I think Misbah is VC but his place isn't really secure at the moment so I somehow doubt it'll be him. Afridi's Twenty20 captain but he isn't in the Test frame at all at the moment so you'd imagine he'd be even more unliekly.

    It looked a lot less fishy by the time the Aussies finished batting, because they nearly completely ****ed up the chase. It looked like Pakistan could have set a higher target if they'd wanted to, however.

    They have never had a captain resign in protest like this.

    No, but they've had captains resign in protest at all sorts of other things, and in disgust\sulk at all sorts of other things. It's really not a massive deal, for mine.

    So ridiculous yet so predictable. Feel so sorry for YK and his team. They exceeded the expectations and still.

    First, the match fixing allegations are ridiculous. Not only have Australian players disputed the allegations, but the ICC has dismissed it as well. The whole thing got started with some tabloid journalism style reporting in India and Pakistan. It then picked up steam because of the outrageous comments from the Sports minister in Pakistanís National Assembly. I wish there were strong libel statues in Pakistan so that idiot could be sued. He had no proof whatsoever about the allegations, just the tabloid reports. It is disgusting that he represents the people of Pakistan.

    Having said all that, Iím a little tired of Younisí act as well. If you are going be the captain of Pakistan, you have to have a thick skin. He has to realize that one win makes you a saint, and one loss makes you the devil in Pakistan. Thatís just the way it is. For him to quit every time something controversial happens, however justified his anger and hurt feelings, is ridiculous. His resignation has not been officially accepted. I would guess that he will remain captain. I will also venture a guess that sometime in the near future another loss will stir up some ridiculous allegations, and weíll be going through this all over again.

    If he doesn't like it, he can quit. And he's quitting. Sounds fair to me.

    I don't believe that Younis ever wanted the captaincy.

    Nah, neither do I TBH. I don't think there are very many who do want the Pakistan captaincy.

    In my view most people would have to be a) out of their senses or b) a big-headed pratt like Javed Miandad or Shahid Afridi to genuinely want the captaincy of Pakistan. Those who've made a success of it - Imran and Inzamam - are in such a tiny minority. For most it's the very epitome of poisoned chalice.
