Pakistan's flamboyant allrounder Shahid Afridi was omitted from Pakistan's ODI squad against India. Given his poor record with bat and ball this year, this was a right move, and could signal the beginning of the end of his career, writes Osman Samiuddin in the The National.
In being dropped from the one-day international (ODI) squad for the series against India later this month and retained, narrowly it turns out, in the Twenty20 squad, if the end has not come definitively, its beginning has.
Afridi's overall form in 2012 has been very poor, by numbers and by deed. It cannot be said that he has been unlucky, that he is bowling well but the wickets have not been coming. He is not bowling well at all.
