  4. What Afridi means to Pakistan?
    Posted on February 27, 2011 on 10:07 pm by Tim Holt

    As the great Pakistani win passed yesterday so was an individual milestone. That of 300 wickets for Shahid Afridi in Limited Overs Cricket. This to go with his 6600 runs all scored with the speed of light and with the crowd standing on their feet engrossed at his every move.

    Reuters

    By Amlan Chakraborty

    NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has been fined 20 percent of his match fee and his team mates will lose 10 percent for their slow over rate in Saturday’s 11-run win against Sri Lanka, the ICC said on Sunday.

    Match referee Chris Broad imposed the fine after Pakistan were one over short of their target at the end of the match in Colombo when time allowances were taken into consideration, the International Cricket Council said in a statement.

    COLOMBO: Maverick paceman Shoaib Akhtar on Monday said Pakistan were hurting from the cricket corruption scandal, but his rejuvenated team will take their frustrations out on their World Cup rivals.

    Test captain Salman Butt and seamers Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were banned for corruption barely two weeks before the World Cup which depleted Pakistan’s bowling options.

  9. well….Pakistan lost to India by 29 runs in the semi-finals…

    Like Inzamamul-Haq, I’ve got to say, “larkay acha khalay” – (translation – the boys played well), (considering the loads of politics, power-plays, lack of team spirit and confidence, discrimination in team selection etc), they don’t lack talent and they could become a strong team provided they fix their fielding and acquire a bit of confidence in their abilities…they can give all the so-called best cricket teams the run for their money. They just need to get their act together….failing to take out Sachin Tendulaker for about 7 times was a bit much…lost catches, not running after the ball, diving in the wrong direction in the end cost them…loads of missed opportunities…

    Better luck next time….they did put on a good show and they did get to the semi-finals! 🙂
