An Insult, with love from India - thanks to some of our own heads

Yesterday, Tuesday 19th of January 2010, was a cashing day for all Pakistani news TV channels, as it was the breaking news all around the circuit that none of the Pakistani players, who and their head i.e. Mr. Ejaz Butt (the Butt head ofcourse) who worked so hard to get part into the third leg of the T20 tournament namely IPL, the IPL franchises drew water on their hopes by not selecting either of the top notch T20 players of the Pakistani T20 side.

It was almost predicted by some of the Cricket Analysts that it seems difficult that Pakistani T20 team players might induct into the IPL3 but thanks to our Cricket Board's chairman, Mr. Butt, we were trying to make hole in the building's beam pillar with the help of a hammer and screw =P, end result- nada.

Why can't we think of the consequences when we apply international assignments? Like for the last international tour in Pakistan, i.e. Sri Lanka's test tour of Pakistan, security didn't seemed to be fool proof either, even in the Karachi test, where Younus Khan scored 300 runs, during that memorable test match, I didn't see that much tight security as much as I expected as I used to go through Hassan Square to the Jail Road via University Rd. their wasn't that much strict security, keeping in mind, ICC had clearly mentioned that this tour is a testing one as in failing, the governing organization might not be able to convince the foreign teams to visit the entangled in war country and to play here, even knowing that, we didn't do our homework, we even went down, to as low as Sri Lanka's management, keeping in mind, managerial wise in South Asia, India is on top, after that Bangladesh than Sri Lanka and than thanks to 3rd March fiasco, Pakistan lie on the fourth and the last position, else during 1999 - 2003 it was rated between 2nd and 3rd in the same rating.

Whatever did happen yesterday, it was a direct slap on the face of Pakistan Cricket Board, a.k.a. PCB and indirect on Pakistani Cricket and on Pakistan itself. Keeping in mind, our team is the only team in T20 cricket till now, which didn't loose a single T20 match since winning the T20 world cup in England last year, still these players weren't bid for this years IPL, how shame!

And more shameful on the Cricket Board of Pakistan, that they aren't shameful on what they did! Loose management, lost contacts from neighboring Cricket Boards, not airing of Pakistani U19 world cup matches on the TV - complaining that time doesn't match, even we don't have that much warmly greeted relations with the South East Asian Cricket Boards like India and Sri Lanka are having.

We want some live wires in the management, unlike those rotten wires which are being re-used again while stripping into the new. God knows after such things people might take their child away from cricket, the last of the sport which is played with so much zeal all over Pakistan.

Some analysts say, Pakistan ka Khuda hi Hafiz hai (God is the only savior for Pakistan), we should also say that Pakistani Cricket ka bhi Khuda hi Hafiz hai (God is also the savior for Pakistan Cricket)

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…
