What Can You Say About This Guy?

When your team gets knocked over by a part-time bowler like Marcus North (though the Australian wicket-keeper could've thrown his gloves off and taken all those wickets too) there's only one thing you can do:

To sum it up (go to 6:42):

Reporter: When exactly did you decide to retire?
Afridi: When I got out.

I thought long and hard about putting this into words. All I could come up with was a sigh, a smile and Pakistan cricket's best friend: de ja vu.


  1. Pathans make bad kaptaans!! Bad joke but true story..

  2. Not exactly. The two captains who won world titles for Pakistan were Pathan (Imran and Younis Khan).

    I do think though that Younis and Afridi share two things, which are very Pakhtun: honor and honesty. That is reflected in how and why they gave up captaincy.

  3. I have been visiting various blogs for my term papers writing research. I have found your blog to be quite useful. Keep updating your blog with valuable information... Regards

  4. Despite the bulk of information online we often fail to get the specific information which is needed this post is good & contains relevant information that I was in quest of .I appreciate your efforts in preparing this post.
