"No Pakistani player was as ridiculed coming in to the tournament as Misbah-ul-Haq, whose selection at the expense of Mohammed Yousuf, Pakistan's record-breaking run getter last year, drove the latter into the lap of the Indian Cricket League. He might return home as Pakistan's most celebrated cricketer from the Twenty20 World Cup. Pakistan have almost qualified for the semi-final, and it came on the back of a performance so controlled and clinical that it could have belonged to the team they beat," wrote Sambit Bal for Cricinfo describing Pakistan's victory over Australia at the 2007 World T20 group match.

Yup, he is absolutely the right person to remove from the side asap. This is his performance and yet Boom Boom is the utterly useless fast spin bowler Afridi. And kudos to Muhammad Hafeez for thinking that Afridi will play a key role for the side. Yes, he'll play a key role, but not for his own side.
