A happening day in Pakistan cricket

Today was indeed a cashing day for Cricketing Media Personnel as Pakistan, once again was put into the headline news, thanks to the dismal performance. The first one was the white-wash of Australia on Pakistan, the second in the history of Pakistan Cricket, after 1988 in Imran Khan's captaincy. 

The second one was resignation of chief selector Mr. Iqbal Qasim who didn't compromised on his dignity and after today's white-wash, he resigned, I second him because literally some "senior players" tried showing their powers on him by pressurizing him to send their favourite players to New Zealand and than in Australia the skippers comments about the Selection committee that he wanted a particular player but the selection committee didn't listened! Hats off to you Mr. Qasim, although you had a short tenure but unlike some of the other officials, you took the responsibility on your shoulders by resigning and not glued to the selection committee seat.

The third one was rather more similar and close to Pakistan cricket, that is ball tempering, which in the past it were accused and similarly tonight, Afridi was caught on the cameras scrubbing the ball, and he was penalized for 2 T20 matches, which means the T20 match on February 5, 2010 and later in Abu Dhabi against the English, but the captaincy changed had shown some difference in the field. At one stage Pakistan were 0 for 2 wickets and 17 for 3 and after that they managed to touch the 200 mark. Plus later, they were able to take 8 Aussie wickets, even though they were chasing a small target. Thats what an aggressive captain can do! but for now on for these coming T20 matches, I think Shoaib Malik or Kamran Akmal would be assigned as the T20 Captain for temporary basis as MoYo is not in T20 format, Younus Khan is retired from T20. Lets hope for the best.

The fourth one was rather violent and amusing both. Just when the Aussies won the match, an expectator rushed into the ground and tackled Khalid Latif violently after breaching the security cordon. Although Khalid Latif wasn't that much hurt but action is likely to be taken against the spectator and Pakistan's management will also look at the incident in further detail. Lets hope so. The later half of 2009 and start of 2010 wasn't a good one for Pakistan.

World T20 event 2014 and Pakistan!

Everyone is so hyped in Pakistan's win against Lanka in the penultimate test at Sharjah, that they have forgotten that Pakistan won A TEST MATCH, secondly everyday is a new day! 
So instead of letting critics point and raise fingers on Pakistan, lets admit it that Pakistan doesn't stand a chance with likes of Australia, South Africa, New Zealand (unpredictable in shorter format), West Indies, keeping in mind that the tournament is gonna be played on Bangladeshi soil which is wet, moist and soiled for most part of the year! 
My views might hamper many of the Pakistani fans but lets be honest, others are coming here for win as well! Ajmal also off-colour right now, Lankans played him off pretty well! 
I personally feel! Either New Zealand, Australia or the West Indies possess chance to lift this year's World T20 trophy!

The day after the thrashing

Today i.e. 16th June 2013, the day when Pakistan is all out from the penultimate edition of the ICC Champions Trophy, a trophy which Pakistan couldn't stage on their closet. But the time when the team was announced for Pakistan, since than whenever someone was asking me about the same including some of my Indian colleagues, I was not optimistic since what I already had heard about England and its weather at the start of their and the European summer, is very windy, cloudy, overcast and chances may that there would
going to be rain intervals for sure, and therefore in our current team there were no players except Misbah himself who could able to play the ball late and could shift gears to back foot.

As far as our bowling was concerned, I was not satisfied in a sense that no doubt pace battery was awesome but on a broader perspective it was a monotone attack because all left handers, except Wahab Riaz none was able to generate late swing or taking advantage of the la…

West Indies tour to Pakistan 🇵🇰

It is something comes to a surprise but if that is case than it is very good thing as prior to that announcement, PCB has already been engaged with revamping NSK as enroute my office I have been seeing workers shattering the shades of National Stadium 🏟 in Karachi which has been the first time since Pakistan hosted Cricket World Cup in 1996.It is something really good for #Cricketcomeshome as prior to that, all Pakistan hosted games were staged at Lahore and for the first time, PCB had its نظر کرم on Karachi.The PSLIt is on the cards that the final of PSL 3 would definitely be hosted at Karachi as since 2009, 8 years ago things have changed dramatically can't comment on other cities but things changed for good at least in peace and law and order situations, great improvement in the city peace index.2017 on the whole for Pakistan Cricket 🏏Things started bleak for Pakistan. I myself wasn't willing to watch Pakistan play #CT17 as I recall my words again that the West Indies des…
