    I always thought the words "class" and "Afridi" were mutually exclusive. In fact they still are for me. Afridi is a certified habitual cheat, no amount of graciousness in defeat will ever overcome the fact that he is a dishonest person.

    Indeed, has done a very good job captaining Pakistan at this tournament, but a calling him a class act is taking it a bit far.

    You love to paint me out as one eyed, but here you have made a complete fool of yourself, considering Shane Warne is one of my most disliked cricketers of all time, and I consider him quite unscrupulous.

    All the time you come in and play the poster without actually having a valid argument against what I say. When did I criticise Afridi's speech? I simply counter argued the thread title which hails Afridi as a class act, when imo, and many others, he quite clearly isn't.

    Please try and troll harder.
    So why did you bring up Afridi's past when the OP was in context of today's or may be the WC context . No one said that he did not do whatever he did in the past, the OP had nothing to do with that. And also please do not consider yourself that important, if that post was made by Tendulkar himself, I would have still made that post.

    Why ? What has Afridi's ball biting and other cheating incidents in the past have got to do with how he has performed/led/behaved in this world cup ?

    That is a ridiculous suggestion. And I don't know what has his personal habit of drinking got to do with this topic.

    Alcoholism is a serious issue Sanz, can't believe you're taking it so slightly. I for one would never want a team I supported captained by a drunk.

    Weezy, Left Arm Fast, strong dislike for Afridi. I figured it out.
    CW's a fair bit better than PC most of the time. You'll enjoy baiting them here more.
