I was wrong to bat down the order: Afridi

LAHORE – The semifinal loss to India in the World Cup continues to rankle Pakistan’s ODI captain Shahid Afridi who said it was a mistake to position himself in the lower-half of the batting order in the high-voltage game.
“I am not a born captain and I also make mistakes. I made mistakes in the World Cup particularly in the semi-final at Mohali. I should have gone up the order like Mahendra Singh Dhoni did against Sri Lanka in the final at Mumbai,” Afridi said on a TV programme.

At the wrong end of a goal feast

Barcelona, Real Madrid, Schalke and United. These are the four teams to have come out on top after the first legs of the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals last week. A total of 18 goals were scored across the four encounters as all the teams went at each other hammer and tongs.

Waqar wrong to criticise Akhtar publicly

The Pakistan team, its manager and coach should keep the team gelled and should not be talking about the players weaknesses and fitness openly. Instead they should be encouraging all the members of the team. I believe Waqar Younis questioning the fitness of pacer Shoaib Akhtar in front of the media will create problems in the team in the ongoing World Cup. I am surprised that what Waqar said about Shoaib that he is still half-fit and working hard to gain match-fitness. What does he
