Please let this be the last time! At least this time he quit for the right reasons and not because someone stole his pacifier. He says he lost command over the team and there's no point in being a leader when your men won't listen to you.
Agreed. Good call. But the stress has apparently also hurt his batting. Blaming his team-mates for his atrocious performance is not very smart. It shows weak mentality more than anything else. But the interview gets better. Younis felt that Pakistani players played stupid shots at times to deliberately undermine his authority. What the fuck! They hate their captain so much that they are willing to lose the game? Isn't that a whole new level of malice? I knew Pakistani cricket was crazy but damn this beats Gossip Girl!
It could also be a case of Younis deciding that if he goes down, he will take the others with him. Which is just sad because I actually thought Younis was the good guy being bullied by the whole world. Or he is really trying to make it to prime time television. A reality show on an ex-captain and his haunting memories of the team showing him the finger as he goes out to bat. Now, that's never been done before.
Either way, Younis' cricket career might just be over. Don't know if new captain Mohammad Yunus is one of the players that hate him, but I suspect Younis as just a batsman in the team will be getting wedgies and wet willies every day.
Will Pakistan EVER go back to just focusing on their cricket?
