For in a cricket crazy region such as India and Pakistan there are few higher profiles than the Captain of one of these Nations. And in Afridi their are few as idolized, not only in Pakistan, but around the World.

Sport is indeed about the action within the games,but just as integral is the emotion attachedto it.That indeed can not only move people to think,but also to act and exert pressure onGovernments for change. We have seen this many times in history with probably the mostcompelling being the Black Power Salute by both Tommie Smith and John Carlos in the 1968Olympics.That was in protest of the appalling treatment of African American's at the time and duly madepeople sit up and take notice.Thus in it's wake Governments were forced to put the wheels of change in motion.

Though sadly this is theoverwhelming desire of people,but Governments and the Media have different agendas.ForGovernments make cash through conflict and then the Media duly profit from sensationalisingabout it. This again in full bloom in the Cricket World Cup and the hysteria surrounding the epicSemi Final between India and Pakistan.In the lead up the Media did everything and anything to embellish,so as the sell their rags.Thenin the aftermath they were at it again with Pakistan's Captain Shahid Afridi. Though this iswhere it stopped and Afridi shook the World with his comments when the Media tried to make
the Interview about hysteria about India. I don’t know why we
are against India so much. I
don’t understand the mindset of people here, why are we so opposed to India? ….
