Some of the guys on this forum are younger than Afridi's menatal age.

I wondered what the smell was on PP today... must be nappy changing time for those posters.
 
Argh . . So afridi should pack his bags and catch the next flight home ... I think he'll be better appriciated at home . .
 
where is DM today... i think he must be sleeping cuz he has done so much manhossat for him that now he is sitting on the bench.
Well done..
I think we should start DM appreciation thread for making afridi fail in IPL
 
Afridi to be honest deserved the boot given the way he has gotten out, basically he has just not taken responsibility at all and he has let his team down big time. Hope this becomes a lesson to his ego.

Mate Afridi is a brilliant bowler mainly these days, runs are just a bonus...easily Deccan's best bowler, so why did he "deserve the boot"?

well thats how he goes about his busness cant realy blame him.. If he were to change his game and learn to take responsibility he had 10 years to do that ...i dont think he even thinks of taking responsibility .. And as i said he wont change but no matter how he plays even his 1- ball duck is an entertainment...
 
I wonder why Deccan feel the need to play Silva or Vaas, neither has made much contribution to date.

:)) Silva gets a duck! I bet gilly wishes he picked Afridi now. Atleast with Afridi its 6 & out.

ask deccan. :))
 
I dont think anyone in the world rate him as a cricketer let alone a bowler or batsman other than some of his immature fans. Rightly so.The argument that he would not be playing international cricket if he had been in any other country is valid. Wonder if Afridi started a fight with Gilly. :)) over this

Even though he has dismissed Tendu on countless occasions? Or do you guys agree that the midget is overrated, after all? :D :D
 
Good to see Deccans getting murdered.

They still haven't learned the lesson that Afridi is one of their best players.
 
Afridi not the team...

Who cares when all he was gonna do was score a mindless 8-10 and then get caught from a flyer?
 
Good to see Mr. Test player Dravid FINALLY give Misbi a decent chance. Mark my words, he'll make a big score today now that he actually has TIME to do so.

What about his bowling? Afridi is a bowler first and there aren't many better ones than him in one-day/t20 cricket. Definitely no one as good as him in Deccan Chargers
 
Exactly cars

Also Monsee - his batting is the most exciting in the world, that's why I want him in the team.

For how many balls...?

You must be having a constant high after watching his Most Exciting Batting in the World for a Grand Total of of 2-10 balls, every time! :p
 
Poor DC.

They have the best T20 batsman and the best T20 bowler and yet they are in the dumps. :D

im guessing the best t20 batsmen in the team is rohit sharma

Don't you know. Afridi is a bowler who gets paid for his batting or the lack of it.

Tendulkar has been dismissed by lot of unknown first class players you are going to use that as a scale to judge a cricketer? What a lousy argument it is :p

Misbah just got out by an unknown bowler. So whats ur point?
 
Damn it! Misbah was playing so well, but I guess the pressure that he felt with "Mr Test batsman" Dravid moving at a snail's pace forced the dismissal :(

You, my friend, said that nobody rates Afridi as a cricketer. So I pointed out that Mr. Legend, Mr. Icon, Mr. "Greatest Batsman of Universe" has been dismissed lots and lots of times by Afridi. Now don't change the debate.

What an excuse.. you always want moon, stars everyone in line for Misbha to click.. :)) .

Tendulkar has dismissed Inzamam 6 times lol so he becomes a specialist bowler. That is why it is a crap argument.

No, I just want him to be given a proper chance playing alongside T20 batsmen, not Test players. Misbah is pretty much the best T20 batsman in the world, so if he's not scoring big runs it is obvious that something else is to blame. If Misbah was playing under someone like Dravid in the T20 World Cup, he wouldn't have been the best player there. Dravid's slow batting sucks off the energy from the best players in the team.

May be misbha is not good enough to carry his team all the way through?

Have you actually seen any of Misbah's innings? He is the last person you should say "cannot carry his team". Who was the one who single-handedly drew the tests with India last year?

:20:

Then again, I understand you won't dare say what a rubbish, pathetic T20 player and captain Dravid is. Only person you'll blame is Misbah

Afridi is not batting well because

he is not opening.
he is not a batsman. He is a bowler and batting is a bonus.
he can not take pressure.
he is here to entertain not to worry about team situation.


Misbah is not batting well because

he is not given a enough chances
he is not playing along side T20 batsman.

Any other excuses?
 
Anyone who can't admit Afridi is worth his place in the team, in any form of the game, as a bowler alone is talking out of his/her backside.

so, unfortunately Misbah cannot play in Pakistan team. I don't see any other T20 batsman in Pakistan team :) so, he better retire from cricket. :))) :))) :)))
 
cars112 nobody cares about bangalore team. But you keep coming up with excuses for why misbah is failing, afridi is failing. like "he should have batted opening", " he should have bowled 7th over " "he should have been sent down the order"... all kind of things i am hearing. Being a subcontinent player and known as T20 specialist his contribution is less than average.
 
It is hard to understand people blaming Dravid for just about everything. Bowler is bowling a rank long hop that should have been sent out of Hyderabad. He miscues it. "Okay let us blame dravid"

Dravid scored 31 at a SR of 155. Not exactly test cricket. It is him that has taken the team close to winning. Fact is, Misbah has failed to live up to your expectations and you want to blame someone for this :p
 
Great performance by Asad Rauf :19:

Match referee Talat Ali (Pakistan) is he Pakistan team manager or ex-manager???
