YouTube video of the day: Musharraf cheers on the team

Musharraf makes a comeback with a message for the cricket team as World Cup 2011 begins.

Cashing in on the patriotic spirit that has gripped the country at the beginning of the ICC World Cup 2011, former president Pervez Musharraf has made an appearance once again with a good luck message for the Pakistan cricket team.

Having been an avid fan and supporter of cricket during his years in the presidency, such a message was expected.

The video shows Musharraf sitting in front of the logo of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), his newly launched political party. The former president begins by telling team green that he will be keenly following their matches and goes on to advise the players to have confidence in themselves and their abilities and to maintain discipline.

"I have firm belief that you can be the best in the world if you work as a team," said Musharraf encouraging the Pakistani team.

Although the speech may lack the enthusiasm that keeps one hooked till the end, it is a good effort at encouraging the team at the beginning of the World Cup.

Shahzad Anwar | 11 years ago | Reply with Firm Believe, I Appreciate & Admire all of his efforts to let Pakistan survive elegantly in last decade, now doubt he is one of the best leaders Pakistan has ever had. I wish he could be able to come back, but it doesn't seems possible in current circumstances. Regards Shaz
