    The first captaincy change - Shoaib Malik is Pakistan's skipper

    The Pakistan Cricket Board has announced that Shoaib Malik is the new Pakistan captain until the end of the year.

    Other captains expected to be cast aside in the near future, as a result of their teams' performances in the World Cup, are Brian Lara (possibly both tests and ODIs) and Michael Vaughan (ODIs).

    I do expect Stephen Fleming to quit as captain, possibly handing over to Daniel Vettori.

    The one captain on thin ground would possibly be Rahul Dravid while no-one knows what would happen to Prosper Utseya.

    Malik as captain seems like a decision to please everybody in their country; Otherwise Youhana deserves to be captain.

    Lets see how team fares with so many ex-vice-captains and captainship aspirants.
    Younis Khan
    Youhana (I like to call him Youhana)
    Inzy (if he gets a place during test-series)
    Asif (his name was in reckonin for Malik's VC)
