Yesterday news… The team divides into 2-3 camps and the country looses the series in all formats of the game of cricket. India has had good captains and senior players like Sachin and Dravid for long to avoid this kind of issues.
Pakistan were whitewashed in all three formats of the game in Australia and the PCB had set up an inquiry committee headed by Wasim Bari to probe the reasons for the debacle. As recommended by the committee, former captain Shoaib Malik and Rana Naved-ul-Hasan were handed one-year bans. The inquiry committee had recommended that Yousuf and Younis should no longer be part of the national team in any format because of their bad influence on the team and that Malik and Rana be banned for 12 months and fined 2 million rupees each. The Akmal brothers – Kamran and Umar – and Afridi have been put on probation for six months besides being fined between Rs 2-3 million for indiscipine on the tour, the PCB statement said.
