KARACHI (Agencies) - In a public poll conducted by a leading media group in Pakistan, national team's one-day captain Shahid Afridi has got overwhelming support from the people to lead the side in the 2011 World Cup, starting from February 19. The poll in which they asked people who they thought should lead Pakistan in the World Cup - Afridi or Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq, reported The Times of India on Monday. The results published today showed that an overwhelming majority of 94 per cent feel that Afridi is the best choice to lead Pakistan in the mega-event, while Misbah, who recently led Pakistan to their first Test series win in four years, got just six per cent votes. "The results show that majority want the flamboyant all-rounder to be retained as captain in the World Cup and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should now understand this clear message," former Test captain Moin Khan said. Interestingly, there are already indications from the board that after the initial decision of not announcing the captain for the World Cup earlier this month, the PCB has also now decided to go with Afridi. PCB chairman Ijaz Butt on Monday said from New Zealand that the World Cup captain would be named on February 4. Butt, who was due to return home from New Zealand on February 7, has cut short his visit and will now return to Lahore.
