KARACHI: With the cricket world cup due to start later this month, Pakistan’s cricket team has been under increasing scrutiny for their fairly unusual preparations.

They’ve consulted spiritual advisors for their kit numbers and sported the haircut of champions, but this latest antic may  just have topped them all. Two players – Shahid Afridi and Ahmed Shahzad – are arguably the worst offenders as the following pictures show.



Yep, best of luck… champs.

    These are last happy selfies they are going to have. Because by the look of things they are going to get a real thumping by every team. Just look at the player from 1 to 15, does anyone think we have 1 in a million chance?

    Hahahahahahaha….that video clip of Afridi monkeying around with Ahmed Shahzad is hilarious. One has to admire Afridi’s sense of humor, no matter how wretched of a cricketer he is.

    Oh come on!! These players are at THE world cup!! They’ve worked hard to get here, they’re definitely entitled to have some fun! Better the team enjoying themselves rather than being all worked up and nervous!

    I remember last season francesco totti also took a selfie after scoring a goal so does that make him immature too? Let them have fun in free time. Sooner people like you will say because they don’t dress like us hence they are immature. For lord’s sake, grow up.

    Worried are those who work hard for exam. Those who don’t touch their books entire year always have fun before exam.

    There is nothing wrong with taking selfies. They are young human beings, they are not breaking any law, ET or anyone has no right to judge them.
    We Pakistanis criticize everyone and everything, atleast they are doing something for our country, what are we all doing for Pakistan except sit in front of computer and whine?

    Way to go Afridi and Shahzad … :) don’t listen to these low life whiners.
