    For the second time since 2007, we failed to qualify for knock out stage of an ICC Tournament , last year in Misbah's caotaincy and now this Worldcup.

    Hafeez started his tenure very nicely but made some big blunders in this tournament and was quite defensive and Misbah has always been a defensive caotain.

    Do you guys really think we have any chance in next world cup with these two as our captain/vice captain or is it too late to make a change now ?

    Should we take a risk and appoint young guy as our captain for next worldcup or just accept the fate that we won't do well and anything more than Quarter final will be considered as a success ?

    Yes. Change the T20 (and maybe even ODIs) captain before our next assignment. Hafeez knows he won't be dropped because he's the captain.

    Give the new captain some time to learn with Misbah and replace Misbah before or just after WC 2015.

    Its too late now. Don't expect anything from this team in the coming WC.

    Stats Query: What is the average age of players when different cricket boards appoint them as captain?

    Then why not try a new captain ?

    Iam slightly inclined towards Younis as captain.. Though he is a rubbish batsman in this format but might might raise his game for WC and he is a very good captain as well... Other option can be Ahmed Shahzad.

    Younis can play as 6th bowler .. Slow medium pace and bat at number 6.. If we want to avail his services as captain.

    itz better to loose with giving a good fight rather than one sided big loses
    so change the captain that's the solution

    Ahmed Shahzad no way. He is a very good batsman but he can't handle the pressure at all. Younis Khan will not be a bad option but for this to happen we need to kick out Hafeez from ODI squad first. Younis will be a perfect batsman for No. 3 followed by Umar at 4 Misbah at 5 and Fawad at 6.

    Even Misbah needs to go!!!

    Let Fawad(even though I don't think much of him but we need a left hand batsman in middle order) bat at 5, Find someone like Shakib to bat at 6 follow by all-rounders & bowlers.

    That would be perfect but i know will not happen. Only one of Younis or Misbah should be in ODI team and we know who is the better captain out of the two.

    no chance for a youngster getting captaincy for the WC, it will be Misbah. Although I would like Afridi to captain for the final time - go out with a bang.

    you first need the better player in 11 and then pick a captain. Younis doesn't make it to the ODI team unfortunately.

    We need a better Captain desperately and Younis is not a hack with the bat either.

    I wish he could play, likeable guy but he's had lots of odi chances and he just doesn't have the game for it unfortunately.

    I'd like to see a fast bowling captain but we just don't have anyone like that.

    take a risk, build for the future, pick a new young captain
    of the current bunch Ahmed Shehzad most closely fits the bill
    personally after the T20 performance I would take that risk now but with no cricket until October that leaves very little time for the new captain to settle in before the WC so most likely it will be done after

    Who should be the captain in Test/ODI/T20?
    In my opinion Misbah should stay Test and ODI captain and Afridi should be appointed as T20 captain.

    No, Pakistani awam is full of negativity.

    If Hafeez resigns as a captain they would say look he cant even continue after a poor effort in the WC.

    If he doesnt, they'll say look he cant captain why arent you resigning.

    Like calm your self people, its not his fault. He tried to fit in but the luck wasnt their.

    He was looking good against Aus.

    No!

    That very un-cruel toward Misbah who have led the team.

    I don't know, if there is a captaincy it's going to be Afridi guaranteed as captain.

    It's a difficult situation, if you're going to make a change make it now. Still a year to go and time to work on it. Any later and it could catastrophic

    Looking further ahead, after the 2015WC, I'd make Fawad captain and Ahmed his deputy. Ideal combo for me.
