Pakistani public is crazy about cricket and they all know that victory and defeats have a significant impact on everyone in Pakistan. Pakistan is out of the World Cup 2015 and two of our great players, Misbahul Haq and Shahid Afridi will be saying good bye to ODI cricket. This should not have happened as we had lot of victories under their leadership. If we were defeated by Australia, in the semi-final, it doesn’t mean we should abandon cricket but that we should work harder on improving our game. Our cricket selection board needs to select the team without politics. This is the dilemma of our cricket. Misbah and Shahid Afridi should not leave ODI, until we get better substitutes of their statures.
