Shahid Afridi and Waqar Younis had no say in the selection of the long list of probables for the Asia Cup and the tour of England
“We should have three to four new players along with the seniors so that we can strike the right balance in the one-day side. I think the time is right to start grooming and giving exposure to some of our young lot because we also have to keep the 2011 World Cup in mind,” Afridi said.
Afridi was reacting to a query over the omission of 19-year old allrounder Hammad Azam from the 35-member long list of probables for the Asia Cup and the tour of England. He said that neither he nor team coach Waqar Younis had a say in the selection of the probables.
“The selectors had picked that squad but as a matter of policy myself and the coach want to give exposure to young players so that they can provide stable support and back up to the seniors in future,” he said.
Afridi refused to comment on the controversial inclusion of Shoaib Malik in the list, following the reversal of his ban after being accused of causing unrest within the side. “It is something that concerns the board. As far as I am concerned whoever is eligible for selection is an important player for me,” Afridi said.
Yawar Saeed, the manager of the squad, was confident that the team would not face any problems over Malik’s return. Saeed was not with the team during the tours of Australia and New Zealand, after which Malik came in for harsh criticism from Afridi, former captain Mohammad Yousuf, former coach Intikhab Alam and tour manager Abdul Raquib, for his attitude.
“All these players have played before when I was manager and I faced no problems at all from them. They know each other well so I don’t think it is a big thing if Malik or even Younis Khan is selected in the side,” said Saeed, who was a member of the PCB inquiry committee over the side’s performance in Australia.
“There is no personality clash involved anymore and the New Zealand and Australian tours are past. The code of conduct on tour is the same for any player. I am confident no player will give me or PCB any cause for complain.”

Today 2nd April 2011 India is in finals of World Cup 2011 and ICC so called International Cricket Council is more like Indian Cricket Council.
Yes, this is the bitter truth which we have to realize more money is coming from India to ICC and ICC don’t want to disappoint Indians for this . Regardless of caring the sentiments of other nations fighting hard for playing entertaining cricket.
In a TV show on ARY News , when Basit Ali (Former Test Player Pakistan) was asked who will win this Final encounter he said “IPL”. He also hinted this is a signal for wise that IPL will take this cup. Sri Lankans might be given huge amounts so they could also come to IPL after this world cup. , otherwise stage is banned for Sri Lankans.

Australia were hoping India in the Finals
Pakistan were the last team to overcome Australia at a World Cup and brought Ricky Ponting’s 34-match unbeaten run to an end with a four-wicket victory in Colombo to secure top spot in Group A. An impressive display in the field laid the foundations as the reigning champions were bundled out for 176 on a difficult surface, their lowest total in a World Cup since 1992, and despite a mighty effort from Brett Lee they were guided home by Umar Akmal and Abdul Razzaq.
However , Aussies are always to be a great team to comeback. And , this come back will might effect India in quarter finals.
“The adrenaline will certainly be flowing and playing in front of their home crowd in Ahmedabad will be exciting and a challenge for us,” Nielsen Australian Coach said. “We’ve got no fear now; we know we’re in the knockout stage.
“It’s exciting … a mini-grand final in itself. If you came here and thought, ‘What would be the best result? It would be great to make the final against India’. Well, we’ve got our final against India in the next few days. I’m sure if we’re on our game, they won’t necessarily be looking forward to playing against us. That’s something in our favour.”
