Taliban’s (aka Taliblonde) chief, Dron-ul-Islam, in a statement from an undisclosed mountain, vowed to carry out attacks on the unjustified and unholy removal of Pakistan’s One Day International skipper Shahid Afridi.The Taliban chief hinted that he had credible evidence that the decision by the Pakistan CricketBoard (PCB) authorities was taken after long and hectic consultations with the Central IntelligenceAgency (CIA). Talking to this scribe, the Taliban boss said, “The removal of Afridi is unjustified, he is a true Muslim and a true Pakistani, we will carry out peroxide attacks on PCB”.Meanwhile, the sacked skipper has also gained support from Taliban supreme leader Mullah Bush, who has also promised to attack all anti-Afridi forces including, Mohammad Ilyas (not Kashmiri) and Misbah-ul-Haq.Bush, who is a known fan of Afridi, is believed to be going through a period of depression ever since the news of Afridi’s retirement reached his hideout somewhere deep in Texas.According to the CIA, its spy satellites have taken pictures, indicating a massive cricket ground being built in Wana (not the WACA). It is believed that the Taliban are preparing to launch a cricket league of their own, which is expected to attract more fans than the Infidel Premier League (IPL).Insiders within the terrorist group acknowledged the CIA findings and insisted that they had already booked Afridi along with other international players to play in their league. While Taliban sources refused to disclose the name of their league, our scribe has learned that the league will be known as the Invisible Cricketers and Soldiers of Islam (ICSI).Meanwhile, the Chairman PCB, Ijaz Butt, has rubbished the latest Taliban threat and insisted he will continue to have halal food on his desk. He challenged, Bush to penetrate the defences of the cricket facilities in the country with peroxide attacks.Pakistan’s Interior Monkey, Rehman Malik, has warned the Taliban not to carry out attacks and has assured the angered leaders that he will use his influence to convince Ijaz Butt to eat bananas and reinstate Afridi.On the other hand, Rehman has requested the US to constantly monitor all cricket stadiums in Pakistan with drones. The Interior Monkey feels that cricket players and fans will feel safe knowing drones are flying overhead.Meanwhile, the Afridi tribe has also given the PCB an ultimatum of ten days to reinstate Afridi, or, else they will have no other option but to join the Taliban in their fight against this unlawful act by the unlawful cricket governing body of Pakistan.“We feel it is a disgrace to our tribe, we will not rest until Shahid is handed his captaincy back”, said an elderly tribesman.However, there are some reports suggesting that Butt is ready to fight fire with fire for which he has asked the Prime Monkey, Yousaf Raza Gilani, to divert a chunk of USAID to a pro-Ijaz terror outfit in Lahore, which is believed to have fighters capable enough to take on the pro-Afridi Taliban.The founder ofhis small but effective terror outfit, Mohammad Ilyas (not Kashmiri) in a statement insisted that he will not rest until Afridi publically apologizes, or, then becomes Shaheed Shahid Khan Afridi.Afridi and Waqar Younis while playing golf together in Lahore refused to give any statements regarding the recent developments.Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction.

New Delhi: Shahid Afridi, Pakistan's captain at the 2011 World Cup, is reported by Geo TV in Pakistan to have announced his 'conditional' retirement from the international game.
"When I took over, the Pakistan team was in the middle of the spot-fixing crisis," Afridi was quoted as saying by the channel and by the Jang newspaper. "Then the Zulqarnain Haider case happened, but my side fought both against England and South Africa in the ODI series. Then we beat New Zealand in New Zealand, and we got to the semi-final of the World Cup, and beat the West Indies there as well. But the way I've been treated ... the future doesn't look too good. I can't play under a board that doesn't respect its players. Because of this, under protest, this is a conditional retirement."
Afridi, 31, had quit Test cricket last year after the first Test of Pakistan's tour of England, but remained an integral part of the limited-overs sides, which he continued to lead until the recent tour of the West Indies. He was, however, axed as captain despite Pakistan's 3-2 success in the ODI series, and replaced by Misbah-ul-Haq who has been in charge of the Test side as well. Though the board did not give official reasons for the removal, it was believed to be the result of growing differences Afridi had with coach Waqar Younis, in particular over matters of selection.
"We had very solid reasons to remove Afridi and I will reveal them when the time is right," PCB chairman Ijaz Butt had said. "We haven't taken this action without any reasons.
On his return from the Caribbean, Afridi referred to the situation with Waqar, saying, "Although the differences in team management are not such which could not be solved, I feel everyone should do his job and need not interfere in other's work". That led to the board issuing him a showcause notice to explain his remarks, and presumably formed part of the reasons for his removal. Subsequently Afridi decided to pull out of the two ODIs against Ireland; speculation was that he was unhappy over his ouster, though he said he had decided to miss the series due to his father's ill-health.
Afridi is not new to retirements. He first announced a temporary sabbatical from Test cricket in April 2006, in a bid to concentrate only on ODIs in the lead-up to the 2007 World Cup. But he then said that he would reconsider his 'retirement' after the World Cup. He later returned to the side, and even led Pakistan's Test side at the start of their tumultuous tour of England last summer. He, however, once again retired from the longest format, as soon as Pakistan lost the first Test against Australia at Lord's. Afridi was one of the culprits in Pakistan's spineless second-innings effort, holing out against part-timer Marcus North who ran through the line-up.
"With my temperament I can't play Test cricket," Afridi said then. "I wasn't interested in playing Test cricket but the board asked me to go and take a look as they didn't have a choice. But I wasn't really enjoying Test cricket but I tried. I wasn't good enough. A captain should lead by example which I did not."
Afridi was replaced by the then vice-captain Salman Butt, who held the reins until he was ousted following the spot-fixing scandal, at which stage Misbah took charge of the Test side. Afridi remained at the helm in the shorter versions, and led from the front as Pakistan outperformed in the lead-up to, and during, the 2011 World Cup.
PARIS: Indian Davis Cupper Rohan Bopanna and his Pakistani partner Aisam-ul-haq Qureshi advanced to the French Open men's doubles quarterfinals with a straight-set win over Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan and Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan.
French Open 2011
The fifth seed Indo-Pak pair recorded a 6-3, 7-5 win over their unseeded rivals in the third round in one hour and nine minutes.
It will be the third quarterfinal appearance in the last four Grand Slams for Bopanna and Qureshi.
They will now clash with top seeded American twins Mike and Bob Bryan, who defeated Russia's Teymuraz Gabashvili and Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan 7-6 (6), 7-5 in their pre-quarterfinal round.
Bopanna and Qureshi had lost to Bryan brothers in the US Open final last year.
Bopanna is the only Indian surviving in the men's doubles as Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi made a shock second round exit.
Later in the day, seventh seeds Sania Mirza and Russian Elena Vesnina will take on top seeds Gisela Dulko of Argentina and Flavia Pennetta of Italy in the women's doubles quarterfinals.
Another contest of Indian interest would be the mixed doubles quarterfinal between Indo-Czech pair of Paes and Iveta Benesova and the top seeded combination of Slovakian Katarina Srebotnik and Serbian Nenad Zimonjic.
