Pakistan vs Ireland Cricket – 2011 Series
Pakistan vs Ireland One Day International:
Pakistan will be traveling to face Ireland in the 2 One Day International matches to be played towards the end of this month. Pakistan cricket has always been in the news either for the good reason or the wrong. In the World Cup 2011 they way their young team performed they won the hearts of not only their home nation but also other cricket nations around the world, but immediately after the World Cup the series against West Indies was won by them in not convincing matter with the the margin of 3-2 although Pakistan won first three matches of the series but they crumbled in the last two matches.
Captain Shahid Afridi’s statement after the 5th match that everybody should stick to their job and not interfere in the other matters had taken everybody by surprise and the reason behind that was the inclusion of some players in the playing 11 without his concent. There were rumours that Afridi will be stripped off his Captaincy from the ODI’s but that was not the case as PCB has offered their backking to Afridi.
