The all green team from the sub-continent is never new to controversy and this time former ODI skipper Misbah-ul-Haq and coach Waqar Younis want to install some discipline in to their volatile squad in the matches to come and are ready to take several harsh measures including dropping star players to ensure this.

In Pakistan cricket cirlces it is said that after the World Cup when the team headed back home, Umar Akmal along with Ahmed Shehzad showed bad attitude ad gave the impression that they are not ready to change their approach towards the game.

The captain Azhar Ali and the coach in unison have dropped both the above mentioned players along with the opener Nasir Jamshed on the same grounds from the team to tour Bangladesh which starts later this month. Shehzad however has been retained for the T20 match.

Apparently, it was Afridi the T20 skipper, who wanted Shehzad in his team and the decision to drop them from the Tests was a collective one.

Afridi’s decision to have Shehzad was due to the lack of experience in the squad to play the T20 World Cup in India early next year. And the reason for dropping the players was to make them realize the mistakes they made and the change they need to bring to don the national team colors again.

The Pakistan team who is to start practice in Bangladesh on Monday made it clear that the dropping of the players was not due to their form but so as to make them realize that they need to be more mature in their approach towards the game.
