No tears for Shoaib Malik


           A sacking long overdue.


Eighteen months into his captaincy, to everyone's relief, Shoaib Malik has been dethroned.


He has been at the receiving end from all most all quarters from the day he accepted the Captaincy and it is wonder that he lasted so long despite internal mechanizations.


You can almost say the recent humiliating loss to Sri Lanka was the final straw and the PCB after a show of calling for reports sacked him and appointed Younis Khan as the Captain.


However, Younis Khan as is his wont has not confirmed his acceptance presumably to do some behind the scenes negotiating.

Malik was there becoz nobody wants this job. Younis will come on his own terms.
