    Weird stat. Kieron Pollard with the ball has 39 one-day wickets at 37.4 on the international level. Overall in List games, Pollard has 69 wickets at 27.3. Now the interesting bit is that in his non-international one-day games, Pollard's 30 wickets have come at 14.1 apiece. Suddenly he turns into Sydney Barnes on the WI circuit

    Afridi was quite defensive as captain too.

    Only Younis was attacking.

    Talking about captaincy only.

    If Misbah starts to play aggresively, but still does the same faults with setting defensive fields + negative tactics will mean that he is a defensive captain regardless of what he does individually.

    Thats why Afridi was also a defensive captain.

    Afridi is beyond stats, he's an enigma who wins you game. That's why he'll always be a notch higher than mortals like Tendulkar and Bradman
