Creating unnecessary hype!

The Big Picture
After the three Tests come the five ODIs and a Twenty20 to complete Pakistan's tour. While the opening segment of the trip ended in a 3-0 victory for Australia, the limited-overs arrangements will be much more competitive.
Despite the result, Pakistan's squad became more united as the tour went on and they have received some key reinforcements, with Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi added to the unit. The tourists have also troubled Australia in their most recent engagements and their fast-bowling unit, which includes Mohammad Aamer, will worry the hosts at times. Australia won a tight series in the UAE 3-2 last year and the teams also ran into each other at the Champions Trophy, when Australia sneaked home by two wickets.
This series will be an important gauge of the popularity of the 50-over game. Twenty20 crowds have been huge for the domestic Big Bash and five-match head-to-head series against Pakistan and West Indies will test Australia's love affair with the format that began here in the 1970s.
I suppose this is an old tactic of winning the war before the war actually started. Creating that sorta pressure on the opposition team that they eventually end-up getting pressurized and later under-performance result.

I don't know why our media instead of being a copy cat, try to be realistic and do the job like the media of those country's doing for theirs, instead we're here enflaming the views and reviews and other useless things. We need to get matured as other countries have been.

Similar sorta hype was created at the start of the Melbourne and Sydney test, and because of that I suppose the team got under-pressured, which is their weakness, we should not blame others for it as other are for exploiting your weak-points. On the other hand we've a habit of exposing ourselves unnecessarily, whether it refers to our weak-points, strong-points, injury etc. everywhere we get exploited because of our own weakness of exposing unnecessarily.

The way Aussie media exploiting this weakness of Pakistani cricket team and media management, I don't think the end result of the ODI SERIES won't be different than that of the recently concluded TEST SERIES.

Peace!

West Indies v Pakistan

Today is the start of another away series for Pakistan, where both teams are even Stevens since both;
1. Wants a direct entry to 2019 CWC
2. Want to improve their records
3. Wants to carry on the momentum to up coming Champions TrophyOn paper, Pakistan's record looks much stable but like we all saw in recently concluded PSL where QG team combination just before the finals was disturbed, whereas PZ was with full strength, so my point was the team whose combination would be stable will win, and for that I'd rate Windies for it since they have been playing as a team and this is a second series with almost the same combination, whereas Pakistan team on the contrary is new, no doubt vibrant but like I always heard a term especially from the Indian Commentators, The Trust Factor where when a team plays with a particular combination, management team and other relatees start to trust a particular player, bowler etc, that thing isn't available for Pakistan, whereas Windies have tes…

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…
