Afridi backs new Deccan Chargers captain,Gilchrist
KARACHI: Flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi is backing Adam Gilchrist as the new captain of his Indian Premier League team, Deccan Chargers.
Gilchrist replaced Indian batsman, VVS Laxman after Afridi raised questions about Laxman's captaincy skills and credentials for twenty20 cricket.
Gilchrist was made captain after VVS Laxman got the sack as did coach Robin Singh by the new management of the Deccan Chargers team.
D. Chargers finished last in the first IPL season. The sackings came days after Afridi was involved in a war of words with Laxman.
Afridi had set the ball rolling by describing Laxman as a weak captain and not ideal for twenty20 cricket. Afridi told Geo News he backed Gilchrist.
