    So yousuf comes up and says that there was one player who spoiled team unity according to cricinfo. He also says that after the Chairman announcement all of a sudden six or seven captaincy candidates sprung up.

    Well... isn't this what we have been saying all along. And why didn't Yousuf tell the person to pack up his bag and leave... And well who were the others who supported the person who disunited the team.

    With Pakistan there's always at least one person who spoils the team unity, there's nothing new or revolutionary about that.

    Miandad had Imran and Wasim coveting his spot, Wasim had Waqar. Inzi had Akhtar.

    Malik had Younis, Yousuf and Afridi. Younis had Afridi and Malik.

    What's MoYo whining about? Isn't he the same guy who showed his support for the PCB's choice of captain by running off to the ICL?

    Looks like MoYo is learning what it's like when the shoe is on the other foot and that it's not a pleasant experience.

    Yousuf and Razzaq, these two are the biggest cry babies/back stabbers in Pakistan team. Malik and Kamran are the future crybabies. The moment u drop or point finger towards them they pull out the senior card or try to put the blame on someone else.

    Would rather prefer Afridi to captain us in all formats with random brain farts then this guy.

    Pakistan team and disorder are synonymous. Our history is spent not just in documenting our on field exploits but also with are off the field horns. Historical Pakistani teams before had far sinister people donning the green. With characters like Abdul Qadir, Zaheer, Majid, Miandad, Akram, Inti, Wasim Raja, and that kenyan dude, all more or less playing in the same era and yet Pakistan team was locking horns with the Windies for glory in that decade is a testimony to the greatness that prevails in the towering shadow that is Imran Khan, contrast that with a complete white wash that yusuf begged from a below par aussie unit and all that over one dude spilling rice in a paddy factory screams the dogma of pitifulness that is yusuf's captaincy / excuse.

    Yusuf is lucky in that he is captaining a young team who are all insecure about their place and their status in the team. It is within the domain of the captain to not just call the toss and adjust field placings but to man manage the situation as well as sell it to the press. Yusuf failed miserably as a bat, his field placing for a 10 year vet can be quantified as a research case for on field down syndrome and his man management is such that one dude is all it takes for him to scream uncle. and that is how they say the cookie crumbles.

    Apparently that person is Malik.. Yousuf says Afridi also knows about him and they dropped him from the tests.

    Future.... They are the current backstabbers. Remember how Akmal tried to use his younger brother as a card to ensure that he plays.

    It's no secret that when Malik was captain he was under siege from the seniors who all felt he'd usurped their position. For some reason Malik has become a handy scapegoat for everyone despite the fact that even if he is guilty he's just doing what guys like Afridi, Yousuf, Akhtar and Younis were doing to him when he was captain.

    They're all as bad as each other!

    Oye Hoye Oye Hoye, Malik pulled a YK 1.0 (ver dummy captain), refused to captain Pakistan in a T20 match. Have said he will expose Yousuf.

    The kabaddi match is about to begin, more and more masala news to follow!

    Well he kind of confirmed that he is the man being pointed out by Yousuf. Its strange that both Younis and Yousuf have pointed their fingers to this guy..

    Kind of strange for a person so limited in cricketing abilities.

    Between can Malik retire from all forms of cricket altogether. We will have one problem less to deal with.

    Not so sure about Younis, however even if it were true, that doesn't absolve Malik from what he has been doing of late. A disruptive influence. We need to get rid of him and of others belonging to the same category.

    If we wanted to get rid of ALL the disruptive influences then Afridi, Malik, Younis, Akhtar, Yousuf and (apparently) Umar Akmal would be gone leaving us not much of a team!

    Some points to consider:

    1. What is moyo doing saying all this in the media/ YK was classy enough not to come out with allegations. But moyo is just a clinger, who wants captaincy at all cost.

    2. YK was undermined by this same group of players. But at that time, moyo didnt back YK. He backed this group, argued with Ijaz Butt on TV, and got captaincy. And when the same problems are haunting him, he is complaining.

    Moyo has zero credibility. He is equally responsible for this mess.

    I have said it before, and I will say it again, YK was the only person who could have led this side. After him, there is too much instability.

    Moyo, malik, kami, misbah, and even umar akmal, should be kicked out of the team. And besides umer, none of them should ever play for pakistan again

    They all need a slap to be honest, they don’t seem to have a clue about the responsibilities they have being international cricketers. What a great example they are setting for the children back in Pakistan who idolize these guys.

    This is Pakistan cricket for you. Some other talented bloke will come and start scheming to protect his position in the team. I now wish Younis had more grit in him. His ODI performances did him no favours and the rebel elements got to work.

    If the Pakistan cricket team is to be saved from the current shenanigans, then we need to do a ruthless wholesale change at the cost of semi-rebuilding the side from scratch. The rogue elements need to kicked out.

    The only way the word class can be associated with MoYo is when you apply it to his silky batting. In every other way he lacks class or even basic common sense.

    YK was besieged as captain but he kept quiet, Malik was under attack by the seniors when he was captain but even he didn't get into a public slanging match.

    MoYo on the other hand was clearly out of his depth as a captain and Pakistan deserved to lose under his insipid captaincy. But he still cant take it on his chin and admit he failed, instead he whines about 'one man' (who didnt even play every game) undermining him.

    According to some accounts YK only had one man supporting him with the rest of the team against him yet he not only managed to keep the team together but he turned them into a fighting unit. I know we need MoYo's batting but maybe it's time to retire him so we can move on and out of the 'seniors' era.
