    Should Shaheen Shah Afridi be made the captain of Lahore Qalandars?

    Sohail Akhtar is there only god and LQ management know why.

    Heís what you call a specialist captain.

    Making Shaheen captain can serve them in the long run, as heís young

    Heís a performer and a passionate bloke.

    Moreover itíll give a new potential captain for Pak team.

    Good idea. Might also groom him a bit besides giving him a sense of responsibility. Will help him see the bigger picture

    Totally. Hes the best choice they have and hes better in terms of talent, personality and attitude than the likes of Shadab (who seems like a two face type of character), Hassan, Faheem - the tapoori low class squad.

    Sohail Akhtar is a nobody and is not capable of leading from the front.

    If anything SSA should be groomed as future captain for Pakistan. Hes our number one bowler in all formats.

    Not a bad shout but i'd rather have either Mohammad Hafeez or Fakhar Zaman as captain and Shaheen as vice captain for now.

    Its should have been either Hafeez, Lynn or max Fakhar this season. In future he can be, at the moment he should just focus on his game.

    Hafeez imo.

    Shaheen is way too young and Fakhar was awful at captaining LQ last year.

    I'd rather he didn't take on the extra burden. The disaster that is LQ won't be any better either way

    No, fast bowlers & w-keepers should never be suggested for Captaincy if alternates are available. LQ has best Pakistani man for the job - Mo Hafeez. For Shaheen, itís even more applicable considering his overall workload and his intelligence......

    Keep changing captains and it hasn't really helped has it? Maybe its time to look at the team management and a "champion" in the dug out who is sitting there who knows it all

    You can say lack of it, if I go by the media report. Doesnít look to be the coolest guy and shouldnít be either - fast bowlers should made to burn blood for sweat, not brain cell for thinking. What little I have heard from him, donít think he speaks well either, something essential for a multiple language country.

    Instead of captaincy, he should spend that amount energy to improve his batting, can be an effective No. 8; captaincy is not for him.

    What media report? Though I agree he should concentrate on his batting seemed to have improved a bit, but needs to throw away the wild slog. Shouldn't be captaining now.

    Come on MMHS, you cannot question a person's intelligence over some comments. He might not be politically correct per say as he belongs to a backward area but his bowling and variations shows that he is intelligent.

    Captaincy is a bit different than bowling intelligence. Also, I was referring to his questionable antics on Facebook (or Dione such online forum). Doesnít look to be a good communicator either. Captaincy even at club level is also an investment- Babarís deputy should be Shadab (or Gohar, had he cemented his spot), but not Shaheen; that should be cascaded down to PSL as well.

    Captaincy isn't the issue to be fair. It was Shinwari who gave it away, lol. Rauf was expensive too.

    No he shouldn't. Next season Lahore should look to sign someone who can captain the side. They don't have someone who can do the job right now. Hafeez can't be trusted under pressure. I would not be surprised if he was offered the job and turned it down.

    If Brendon McCullum can't captain Lahore then no one can.

    Wouldn't be opposed to VC but captaincy is off-limits. Let him enjoy his age and continue developing.

    Good idea to mess up with the best player of the team. He is just 19 and a shy person, captaincy will be disastrous for him and the team.

    Wondering how some people come out with ideas like this .

    Hafeez should lead. Don't over burden him at the moment. He can be their VC though.

    Shaheens looking like he's over the awkward gangly stage and moving onto have more confidence in his instincts

    Too early in his career. The kid has only just started playing cricket.

    Hafeez should have been made skipper for Qalandars.

    I'm guessing they went for Sohail Akhtar as a bit of a yes-man for the coaching staff.
