    Are Afridi and Waqar really being analytical or are they making it all up as they go along and riding on luck so far?

    IIRC Waqar wasn't a very good captain (Wasim was the more intelligent one) and Afridi has never really been intelligent.

    Pakistan and analytical???? From what I read Waqar can barely shut down his computer
    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

    I think he meant more about strategy and planning rather than being an IT consultant.

    I am sure the new analytical Pakistan will learn a lot from their upcoming semi-final defeat.

    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.

    Lovely to see such support for the first captain to take Pakistan into the last 4 in 12 years.

    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.

    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.

    Seems like he wasn't too far off.

    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).

    Dhoni isn't under pressure of losing his job, but to say he's not under pressure is ridiculous.

    He is under pressure like any other Captain would be for a WC SF.

    Dhoni is under more pressure than Vettori. Much more.

    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.
