Watch highlights from Canada vs Pakistan – the Group A game from the 2011 World Cup played on March 3, 2011
Scoreline: Pakistan 184 all out (43) – Umar Akmal 48 (68), Misbah 37 (68) | Harvir Baidwan 8-1-35-3, Cheema Balaji and Hansra 2 each
Canada 138 all out – Jimmy Hansra 43 (75) | Shahid Afridi 10-23-5
Extras: Ramesh Powar’s Canadian cousin Balaji Rao involved in a sledging duel with Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Gul (Canada Bat 4 – kind of starts at 3:10 as he walks in. But the main bits begin from 5:00 onwards). Stump mics turned on, and from what I could hear, sounds like Little Balu’s asking Shehzad a pertinent question – what did you hit, ______
Afridi’s tactical captaincy might be questionable, but sometimes captaincy is about passion and believing you can win. At this point it seems like Pakistan’s progress this World Cup will be mostly because of this aspect of his captaincy.
