Appointment and Non-Appointment of Captains

Best Blog Tips

Pakistan have named a 15 member squad for the world cup. But no captain. Australia on the other hand have named their test captain, one-day captain, T20 captain, future test captain, and a future test captain who is willing to captain the current test captain when he becomes a player; who is different from the current future Test Captain.

Behind the scenes, a group of at least 6-8 Pakistani players met at Queensland, a resort town of New Zealand and pledged on the Quran, after signing their names in blood that if Shahid Afridi is not selected captain, then they will lead a player revolt. 

The remaining team did the same for Misbah-Ul-Haq at a house next door.

The team deeply divided over the non-appointment of a ODI captain, is expected to end New Zealand's winning streak at Queensland.

Meanwhile in Australia, administrators, players, coaches, selectors and sponsors, in a show of unity at a media event, have pledged their unconditional support for each other. They all commended each other for the wonderful job they have done over the summer. 

At the event, Greg Chappel said that leaving Shaun Marsh out of the squad sends an unprecedented and bold message to Australia's opponents. If a side can leave Shaun Marsh out, they will wonder how good the guys in the team would be. 

Andrew Hilditch added that Shaun Marsh does not have an excellent record in India; even counting the IPL matches. 

He was reading from a prepared statement.

Very funny.

Andrew Hilditch probably thinks they've left Mitchell Marsh out of the World Cup squad. That happy hooker can hardly tie his own shoelaces.
