I remember Wasim saying, when Waqar was appointed as coach, that Waqar was a great guy to have a coach. A person with the right attitude, will, and determination. Which is saying a lot given that they do have a bit of history between them.Waqar's ideas when he was commentating for the Pak-NZ series a while back seem to have come to fruition. Take from that what you will.
Dhoni under pressure of what ? Dhoni is under no pressure as captain, that much should be clear to all fans. Not saying it will be an advantage to have Pakistan captain under more pressure, because Pakistan under pressure is advantage Pak (at least in games against India).Not really as much as India. If we lose Afridi will just say that it wasn't his fault because after all he is only 16. On the other hand if India loses Dhoni is under huge pressure.
What is so romantic about Pakistan's unpredictably ?I hope Pakistan never becomes an analytical side like SAF, one of the beauty of Pakistan is raw talent, flair and its inconsistency ofcourse some off the off field issues over the last 2-3 years were too much to take and I hope things don't go as bad as it went 6-8 months back but there is something romantic about Pakistan's unpredictability.
It's just the way a country plays,and there is a certain attachment to it.We might pull off our hair off at the stuff that goes on in Pakistan cricket,but the same players can be world beaters too.It's a part of Pakistan cricket.I'm all for the analytical thing,as you do need to move on with time,but the unpredictability of Pakistan Cricket will always be there because it's down to the personality of the nation as a whole,not just a Cricket Team.
I do get where Xuhaib is coming from.After you've seen something for so long,a drastic change,even if it's for the better,would be a little hard to digest.
For example,imagine if SA won a knockout match at the WC....We must never let that happen,NEVER!
