Action justified clearly

Pakistan Cricket Board should take strict but sensible decisions on management as-well

Some might say Intikhab Alam have been rough and rude to current Pakistani players, but I think it clearly justifies when you can't perform on the field and off the field aswell, everyone was looking in a hurry and wanted to show himself superior on the tour.

That's not only me saying but everyone who closely followed Pakistan's tour of Australia, even in a TV clip I heard Mohammad Yousuf saying that Ricky Ponting said to him that his troops are not marshaling along him. On the other hand, Shoaib Malik was heard saying that it was not because of him that Pakistan lost but it was because of the defensive approach MoYo adopted, which resulted in disastrous tour down-under. I just want to ask one question, that ok MoYo was defensive, and one must admit that, but that wasn't ONLY the reason behind such performance? Dropping of catches, mis-fielding, bowling not upto the mark, is skipper literally responsible for such individual acts of other players, I don't think so!

Although I am not a great fan of MoYo's captaincy capabilities but one must agree with it too that boys played their own parts in accomplishment of such results, and it would be unfair to singly point out MoYo for the result. We should also be ashamed that they used Holy Quran, just to take oath that they'll not allow Younus Khan to captain them along post ODI series in Dubai and Abu Dhabi against Kiwis, (after that tour we had to tour down-under to New Zealand).

I agree somewhat with what Aamir Sohail mentioned just at the time current PCB management were thinking of changing Shoaib Malik with Younus Khan, he clearly mentioned that if such exercise would be implemented it would send clear message to the players that do whatever you want, and it could have disastrous results in return, but this suggestion wasn't listen and now when Australia have 4 skippers replaced in 20 odd years, we had 3 skippers in span of 12 months. So like I was saying earlier that Intikhab Alam was right in his words, I think what I have drawn light on clearly justifies that although there was problem with players too, no one is denying this but this is also a fact that effective management was needed and the responsibility of effective manager is that of a preventer, (the person who prevents worst things to happen), players' problem I admit prevails in Pakistan cricket but it could have been prevented, instead of being now wobbling for.

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…
