Afridi or Misbah---------A real fight & grouping begans again

After todays defeat with Newzealand a question mark against Afridi's captaincy created whether he will be captain or not in World cup.PCB has not announced captain for World cup 2011 yet.There was a lot of pressure upon Afridi in this ODI series.Afridi face shows pressure in the match and he got out on a cut shot.While Misbah was looking cool and definitely he has no pressure regarding anything because he had won Test series after many years and his named comes as a Captain in World cup.So he was playing sensibly but Afridi is in huge pressure and is now got a lot after losing match.

Ex-cricketers are continuously criticizing PCB for not announcing captain for World cup yet.They said that Afridi should be captain in World cup 2011 but what Ijaz Butt wants no one knows.

Afridi improves very much after becoming captain he was continuously scoring runs and in his captaincy team shows in a unit which was lacking for a long period.While Misbah was not in form in last many ODI'S and test matches but when he got captaincy he took his form back which creates many questions for cricket world.
Do Misbah was involving in grouping against Younis Khan captaincy?
Afridi didn't win a series of ODI yet but team shows effort under his captaincy by fighting till the last game of ODI series against England and South Africa in a tough situations when Pakistan was in big criticism for match fixing allegations

Comes on todays match.Afridi wins the toss and elected bat first but his openers didn't did anything and out immediately. In middle order Younis & Misbah makes partnership but after sometimes Younis also dismiss.Asad Shafique was given out wrong.Afridi came but he was looking in pressure by his face.And out after scoring only 16 runs.Misbah stood at pitch till last wicket and after scoring his 50 he was bowled in a funny style that his trademark like 2007 final dismiss.And he shows his wicked smile to public.What was the message behind the smile no one knows.

What is the guarantee that in Misbah's captaincy team will score 300+ or makes some reasonable runs for opponent or will chase the target if Misbah is only scoring runs.Misbah scores 50 in the match but in vain.
On other side when Afridi , A.Razzak ,Younis scores 50 Pakistan wins the match everytime.

Misbah has only saved Pakistan from many shameful defeats many times but not from defeat.When Pakistan was losing t20 final in 2007 he made hope of winning but out after playing a funny shot.

A.Razzak has saved Pakistan and got to win manytimes.If a captain are those who scores runs than A.Razzak and M.Yousuf ,Younis Khan is good choice.I think A.Razzak is good choice if PCB do not wants Afridi as captain in World cup.

Their is also criticism on Afridi that he took wrong decision of batting first but no one knows that the decision of batting first or bowling first is suggested by team management,coach and Vice Captain to Captain.

There is a grouping in the team who does not want Afridi as captain in World cup.If PCB announced the captain with squad than there was no grouping created and Team shows his unity in the match because they knew that their captain is Afridi till world cup but now players got power to show their strength against captain.

It is same situation like in 2003 when board announced WAQAR YOUNIS as captain intead of Wasim Akram and we didn't reach for super sixes.After which many senior players resigns and we went to rebuild our team. Which results in again not qualifying in super 8 in 2007.If PCB didn't took lesson from their past and make a new captain for mega event than its may be cause big disaster for our Team again and may be we will not qualifies for next round again in World cup 2011.
I think PCB should make a wise decision and should announced AFRIDI as captain whether his performance good or not to end conspiracies from the team and they should not allowed to do experiment as a new captain in world cup and new captain failes again in the world cup.
