Afridi is not captaincy material though. Just does not know the art of captaincy. just doesn't put pressure on the opposition by restricting singles or bringing in slips etc. did n't grab the opportunities presented to him in this tournament. A better captain would have taken us into the semis with the same team.

RSA have struggled despite having some world class players in their team. India have been below par as well in this tournament; scraped to a one-run win against BD, lost to NZ by a bigger margin and were reeling at 20 odd for 3 against us. Yes the target was small but a better captain like Imran, Younis or even Misbah would have seized the opportunity at that stage or at least made life more difficult for India by stopping the singles and bringing in close-in fielders. Afridi on the other hand just seemed content with stopping the boundaries despite defending a small total. That was pathetic captaincy to say the least.

NZ and Windies have already qualified. England will likely be the second semi-finalists from the other group. Australia will start as favourites in the KO game on Sunday
