I feel they have taken a right decision in the end. Afridi commands respect of the team members. I doubt if the same can be said about misbah. Misbah's has always been a in & out of form player who has struggled to keep a permanent place in the team. He can be brilliant on one day & totally cueless on other days. At least Afridi will bowl his quota of 10 overs. He has also done a pretty decent job as skipper so far.

You are right srijshm, Afridi looks to be better choice over Misbah. Afridi has got a steady carrier and performs either with his bat or ball. When in full form with his bat no baller can stop him. Misbah at times looks a great player and sometimes just ordinary.
