    What a good photo. Afridi is criticised a lot but among all that, he played some gems which deserve recognition.

    He comes of once in a while. But that is also rare these days. Pakistan batting is not that good to carry two ffez such inconsistent players.

    The team sheet is such a joy to see. Despite Wasim and Waqar not being there, there is quality from top to bottom. Even a second 11 of Pak wud have destroyed the current first 11

    Wish he was forced to retire some years back..

    Man is too political, creates a disastrous environment in the team..

    and can go to any lengths to get captaincy again, like his recent media attention grabbing tactics..

    An Indian team without SRT ? He only played the 5th/last match, which also went to Pakistan (grabbed that Kannadian series 4-1 without the double Ws )

    One of the gems of Afridi as his centuries were rare, very rare.

    Kannadian ?? A similar phrase is used to describe an Indian state's people/language, Kannadiga/Kannad. (Karnatka, whose capital is Bangalore)

    BTW, SRT was sent to the CWG games and India sent it's other team to Sahara cup.

    Yes he came off one in a while back in those days Pakistan could afford such a player but not towards the end of his career. His only utility was his bowling which he improved towards the second half of his career.

    Canada didn't really develop as an international venue which is surprising really.

    Potential was there.

    I remember this series quite clearly. I was about 8 years old. It feels like it happened yesterday.

    Pakistan won the series 3-2 or 4-1 (if I remember correctly).

    what was the logic of wearing whites in some ODIs in those days?

    Like it had been 6 years since colored clothing and you would think in a venue like in Canada you would want color clothing even more to attract youngsters and make it seem exciting

    In those days, ODIs were played in both white clothes and colored clothes. I think they stopped using white clothes for ODI from 2001.
