Afridi said his style of captaincy is very different from Misbah's.

Karachi: Pakistan's flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Afridi has said that the captaincy issue of the national one-day team for the World Cup should be laid to rest as Misbah-ul-haq was the best choice to lead the side in the mega event.

Afridi told reporters in Islamabad on Friday that Misbah had so far done a good job as the Pakistan Test and one-day captain and was the best person to lead the team in the World Cup.

"I think this issue should be laid to rest once and for all now because the World Cup is round the corner and Misbah is the best man for the job," he said.
