ISLAMABAD---Pakistan captain Mis-
bah-ul-Haq said yesterday his players
performance in the Asia Cup had
raised his hopes for the team in the
upcoming World Twenty20.
Pakistan pulled off stunning run
chases against India and Bangladesh,
but lost the lopsided final to Sri Lanka.
Misbah said the run-scoring by the
likes of Ahmed Shehzad, Umar Akmal
and Shahid Afridi on Bangladesh wick-
ets indicated the team can perform well
when that country hosts the World
Twenty20 from March 16.
"There s a disappointment that we
couldn t win the final, but the morale
of the team is very good," Misbah said
after arriving home from Bangladesh.
"We have a very good chance (in
World Twenty20)...especially the bats-
men are in good form."
Pakistan is in a challenging group
for the World Twenty20; facing India,
Australia, defending champion West
Indies and a qualifier.
Afridi hit successive sixes in last over
for a one-wicket win against India and
then his robust fifty off 18 balls earned
Pakistan its biggest ever every chase of
327 against Bangladesh.
Pakistan is one of the most successful
teams in the shortest format of the
game, having qualified for the ianugural
World Twenty20 final in 2007 and then
two years later won the event in Eng-
While 39-year-old Misbah continues
to play in the domestic Twenty20, he
quit T20 internationals in 2012 and was
replaced by Mohammad Hafeez as the
Soon after the loss to Sri Lanka on
Saturday, former Pakistan cricketers---
Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Yousuf and
Sikander Bakht---called for change in
captaincy for country s one-day team
"We need aggressive captain in one-
day internationals and for that we
should once again make Afridi as cap-
tain," Yousuf and Bakht told private
However, Akhtar s choice was Saeed
Ajmal, who took 11 wickets and was
the joint leading wicket-taker in the
Asia Cup with Sri Lanka s pace ace
Pakistan sorely missed 7-foot-1
injured fast bowler Mohammad Irfan,
given that fit-again pace bowler Umar
Gul struggled on the slow wickets of
Bangladesh, taking just five wickets in
five matches with an expensive econ-
omy rate of 6.23. (AP)
Joe Root has, as expected, been ruled
out of the World T20 due to the broken
thumb which forced him to leave the
tour of West Indies last week. Ian Bell,
who has not played a Twenty20 match
since January 2011, has been approved
by ICC as his replacement.
Root was struck on the thumb on the
third ball of his innings during the final
ODI in Antigua and despite advice to
retire hurt, he continued to score his
maiden one-day hundred and help Eng-
land to a series win.
He still managed to open the bowling
before leaving the field for treatment,
and subsequent x-rays showed the extent
of the damage.
He returned to the UK to see a spe-
cialist and although he has not been
required to have the thumb pinned, the
timescale to the World T20 is too narrow
for him to make a return. England s first
group match is on March 22 against
On Twitter, Root posted: "Bitterly
disappointed I m unable to make the
World Cup! Want to wish the boys the
best of luck and have every confidence
in the whole squad."
Currently there is no precise date for
Root s return to action. Yorkshire s Coun-
ty Championship season starts on April
13 but that may yet prove too early for
Shane Watson has been
appointed captain of Rajasthan
Royals for the 2014 edition of the
Watson will take over from
Rahul Dravid, who retired from
all forms of cricket after leading
Royals to the Champions League
T20 final in October 2013.
Dravid formed one-third of the
core group that settled on the
decision, along with head coach
Paddy Upton and Royals CEO
Watson has been with Royals
from the inaugural edition of the
IPL in 2008, and was one of the
five players retained by the fran-
chise for this year s tournament.
He has represented them in 61
matches, the second-most after
Siddharth Trivedi. He has scored
1887 runs for his franchise at an
average of 38.51 and a strike-rate
of 143.82, and has also taken 54
wickets at an economy-rate of
7.27. Watson was instrumental in
Royals title win in 2008 and was
named Player of the Tournament
for his 472 runs and 17 wickets.
"I am honoured to lead the
Rajasthan Royals, an extraordinary
team which has always given me
amazing opportunities," Watson
"My aim will be to continue
playing our best cricket and main-
tain the winning momentum. We
all want to repeat the 2008 IPL
success and last season, we were
quite close...I am confident that
we can do it again." (AP)
