    PCB should have made this decision an year back. Anyway this late decision shown us the hypocrisy of some experienced great who never wanted to become a captain & all of sudden accept the captaincy in one night.

    It's not about the Captain - Sarfaraz is befitting to this team. It's about the Kingdom, which includes Captain & his players.

    Just stop moaning and spreading such negativity before a mega event. Just pray that our team bring the trophy home.
    I just noticed one thing that we'll never be happy. I am listening to this captaincy rubbish since i started watching cricket. When misbah was captain we just cursed that guy during his whole captaincy tenure. (Heck under him we became world no 1 in tests, became first asian team fo beat saf in saf and to rebuild the team after spot fixing saga was a huge ask for a guy who just made a comeback in a team). Then after misbah, azhar became captain and during his whole tenure we just wanted "sarfraz the saviour" to rescue us. When he became captain, we won an icc tournament with a young team when odds were against us. He helped pak t20 team to rise to no 1 position and then improved odi ranking from no 8 to 5. Heck after a long time i saw a pakistani team competing well overseas. But we still find a reason to complain.. then when we wanted malik to become captain and under him we just lost a t20 series after 3 years. With the same team sarf was winning. As obviously captaincy do matter. But we'll realise it late, and mark this post, even after 1,2 years, when there will be a new captain (i don't know who we'll overhype) , we wont be happy even with him.

    In initial days, as far as legends are concerned, Imran only had Miandad.
    The talent available today is average, average but not hopeless. Problem is not the result which sarfraz is achieving, but the way he's skipping the team.Pak OD team is very inexperienced, the skipper keeps yelling and shouting which doesn't help the younger players.

    Pak rose from 8 to 5 with hardly any world beaters in the team but yes the captain is bad.

    So how long do we have to rest on the defunct ICC trophy performance to continue proving that Sarfraz is indeed a great captain?

    Give me a ballpark figure.

    It's been 2 now.

    1 more year? 2? Perhaps 3 more?


    And I get so high.. And I just can't feel it....

    Where did I mention the trophy, and why are you ignoring the obvious improvement under him from 8 to 5 in ODI ranking ?
    We are talking about his suitability for world cup so I do not want debate the T20 and Test captaincy.

    Yes, but he didn't contribute with the bat and with our weak batting line up, can we play a specialist captain?

    Because the results after the trophy are not a pretty sight.

    But its okay, this World Cup should reveal much more, even to most ardent fans.

    Going from 8 to 5 is mostly playing against Ireland, Zimbabwe and winning the CT.

    No matter who the captain is, Pakistanís batting will cause a first round exit. Also, biwling hasnt been good too. Pakistan looks the weakest team, highly unbalanced. Pakistan would need luck to make it to semis.

    RIP all the "analysts" on PP.


    Sarf is still the best guy to lead the side at the moment.



    Also blaming the captain is the easy way out, not the captain's fault if the bowlers let the opposition off the hook after being 80/5 or the batsmen score 317. All the captain can do is keep rotating the bowlers and giving each ample opportunity to pick a wicket, which Sarf did. What can he do when Shadab keeps bowling long-hop hit-me bowls or Hasan is more concerned about his hairstyle or celebration rather than where to bowl the ball.

    lol we were knocked out by BDs and embarrassed by associate team. It was truly an embarrassing event for a team who considers UAE their strong hold. It was not captained by Malik or some other not so great captain by the great Sarfraz.

    How excited Sarfraz was in presentation with mani suggests he hardly bothers about the huge responsibility or he knew he has no place in the team if not retained as captain. Lol

    No surprise here and the usual suspects defending him.

    We won't win the WC with this current squad regardless who is the skipper. But it would be nice to have a captain who makes the team on merit, can lead through performance instead of promoting tail enders ahead of himself.

    If he doesn't get us to the semis and we are thrashed in games , he should be sacked after the World Cup.

    If it was upto you Kamran would be the captain and Umar Akmal his deputy whereas Adnan would the wicket keeper. Your bias is so obvious one does not have to to read your post and already know what you are going to say about Sarfaraz......

    Watched the whole 31 minute press conference yesterday in urdu.

    Its awful to see how much hate Sarfraz got (and Mani too got some hate) in recent times in this forum and elsewhere.

    Just pick one of his lines from his press conference, make titles and without noticing the context post it so that people can again have a go at him.

    Shameful by certain people going after someone1 who is already down even though he has apologized 3 or 4 times. I hope they dont face tough times in life.

    Mani said he knows Sarfaraz for 13 years now and was there (as ICC chairman) when we won u-19 wc final against Indian in Sarfraz's leadership and wrote a letter to then PCB chairman Sheheryar khan just after that about how good he was.
