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
Once, just once, i'd like to see Afridi deliver with the bat in situations like these.It's tailor made for him.
Won't happen obviously.

I know pakistan never "choke" but this, eh... "implosion" was just crazy.
A target of over 200 was always going to be difficult for a team like Pakistan.
Umar Akmal gets a start, and then blows it away.Just like every other innings in his career.Seriously,either kick him out and bring in someone who can bat down the order and finish innings, or if you're going to play him, play him UP the order.His current position doesn't help the team, nor does it help him.

Pak still needed about 40 off 4 overs when Steyn had his blitz

Misbah with yet another fifty. Surely he's got the most runs at the highest average without a 100 in ODIs now?
whatmore should go and hafeez should play as a specialist bowler and bat at 7

Where is Place of Shahid Afridi? The biggest dilemma in Pakistani Batting!
Thanks to his bowling performance, there is no doubt that he is an integral part of limited over versions of cricket.
Nawabzada Shahid Khan Afridi's place as a batsman is certainly something to reconsider seriously. Whether he is fit for Lower order, Middle order or Opening batsman, is something they need to brainstorm again.
Of course there must not be any dispute in keeping him out of Middle order batsmen list because he is not an inning builder player. He is just a destructor or constructor.
Now, is he fit as a Lower order batsman? is a question this post has been created for. This point needs to be understood as soon as possible. There is a huge imputed psychological impact of his position (as 7th batsman) on all upper level batsmen. Afridi is, never a doubt, the biggest hitter in the history of cricket and his being this has a lasting impact on upper level batsmen. When any of those batsmen thinks that Afridi is still there to come for batting, his own commitment is compromised, he comes in an unintentional relaxed mood and in doing so the chances of some mistake are increased and they do. Thus as far as Afridi is somewhere there in the lower order, there is no chance of a consistent performance in upper/middle order batsmen.
Last option remains as an Opening batsman. I shall add that if he plays as an opening batsman, the danger to Pakistani batting line up will be reduced.
Shahid Afridi is pathetic and needs to retire asap
How about this: Jamshed | Shehzad | Azhar Ali | Shafiq | Misbah | Akmal | Hafeez | Afridi | Ajmal | Irfan | Junaid |
I can't see a better side than this. Don't know much about Umar Amin. Anybody?
