Shahid Afridi, Pakistan - World Cup player to watch

We were going to go for Mohammad Asif, but he's injured. Then we thought about it for a minute and thought: 'Hang on. If Shahid Afridi isn't one to watch, who in this solar system actually is?'.

Because while there's no guarantee of success, you can be 100% certain that you'll see SOMETHING. It might be the fastest ever one-day international hundred; it might be a single ludicrous six and then missing a straight one; it might be dancing on the pitch in his spikes while there's a bomb scare elsewhere in the ground; or it might just be skying his first delivery with an undignified heave. It's sure to be something though.

For his continuing battle against reason and common sense, we salute Shahid Afridi.

Do we detect a theme, Sampath? Rest assured, each of the Test nations (no Zimbabwe) is being represented.

We won't say which Sri Lankan's appearing yet though.

We should really jack this in with omissions as glaring as Ryan Ten Doeschate's.

Well, he's got a ODI career average of 55 with the bat and 22 with the ball. You can't argue with figures, right? Oh.
