Let start the world cup dear... It was not world cup match... If you are happy, better ask you team to pack their things and enjoy vacation at Candy beach.

Pakistani team plays well when its just warm up match and when its world cup then it let other teams to win. I wish it was opposite but fact is fact.

Extremely unreliable team which can do wonders and can give in like a bubble. One can't predict how they could play. They are capable of making highest and lowest records simultaneously.

Pakistan should try to build up a strong team all rounders on merit. Shahid Afridi has lost his batting. Present performance counts. Pakistan can do well in the matches if recommendations and influances do not play in selection.
