Pakistan's Defeat in Sri Lanka Sparks World Cup Fears, Afridi should be Captain says cricket greats.
Former cricket greats said yesterday, that they fear Pakistan's one-day defeat in Sri Lanka will hurt preparations for the World Cup just five months away.
Ramiz Raja, who took the catch that won Pakistan the 1992 World Cup, criticised preparations for next year's tournament.
Former captain Rashid Latif said the one-day defeat would hurt World Cup preparations.
Latif said maybe Shahid Afridi will replace Misbah Ul Hak as one-day captain for their next series, before the world cup.
Another former captain, Mohammad Yousuf, also criticised Misbah's captaincy.
He said that he thinks it is imperative they have Afridi as captain who is aggressive and can lead in a better way.
