But what being happening right now with Pakistani cricket can be called as the job done by insider and outsider both. Creating an anarchy situation in the team is disturbing the team’s moral, resulting in worst results produced recently. ICC’s website says so, if you flashback to previous years’ rankings of Pakistani Cricket Team, there have been a certain decline in the team performance because early 2006 Pakistani team was ranked 3rd but after the disastrous 50 over CWC in the Caribbean, being the last Cricket World Cup for both Inzamam-ul-Haq and Great Late Bob Woolmer, died just after unexpected Irish win against Pakistan (May almighty rest his soul in peace, always), after that Pakistani team had (so called) over-hauling and Shoaib Malik was made the skipper of the National Cricket side, and since a turmoil sorta situation was deliberately created, Malik was made the skipper of the side keeping in mind the same reason which South Africa took while making Graeme Smith the skipper of their national side, overshadowing the nature of Pakistani people who can’t bear a junior over them leading the way (we must admit that).
On the other hand, Mr. Shoaib Malik was himself involved with certain other scandals at that time in India, like when searching for a Deccan girl he was hit with an auntie named Ayesha Siddiqui whom he had Phone Engagement/Nikah. How ridiculous! Than having foggy scandal with Indian new-come girl Syali Bhagat. All these things affected Pakistan team’s performance and reputation both, than there comes a government change and similarly transition of Pakistani Cricket Board’s chief from Naseem Ashraf to Ejaz Butt (the BUTT HEAD), and on the first complete tour in their tenure that was Sri Lanka’s tour to Pakistan in two parts, first one-day series than Sri Lanka would return to their own country to play against India, as Sri Lanka was compensating the canceled tour of India’s tour to Pakistan post 26/11. but must admit that Pakistani Cricket Board wasn’t able to safeguard their visitors during the test tour and were busy with competing with Salim Altaf and Javed Miandad on which who brought the greater profits in Lahore and Karachi matches (both ODI and tests) respectively.
After the disastrous ODI series where Sri Lanka won the Series 2-1, Younis Khan was appointed the skipper of the team, and under his captaincy, team played well in Karachi and were looking under some plans, include Younis Khan’s 300+ score too, but in Lahore everything got topsy turvy when at the time of elections in Punjab, PCB was idiot enough to stage a test match in Lahore when all security agencies including FC, Police and Rangers were involve with the security of political personnel in Punjab and later whatever happened blame must goto the PCB management as tour planning and scheduling is home board’s responsibility and it should have been under plan that under the situation, would it be safe enough to stage a test match in Lahore when Police or Rangers support wouldn’t be guaranteed? Had it been staged in Karachi (we had an example when South Africa’s previous tour to Pakistan, Karachi ODI was shifted to Lahore due to security situation, during the tour) we could had mentioned that security is not as bad as it is, but who tell these butt heads, we also saw India shifted its IPL 2 to South Africa as they were also engaged with elections and were not able to secure foreign players during that time, although one must admit, security conditions in India not ideal aswell, but they show the world that they are capable to handling so.
Just because of these Butt Heads, cricket diverted from Pakistan and we had to stage our home-series’ off-shores, cricket world cup 2011 in which Pakistan was SUPPOSED to be the fourth partner, that privilege was also taken and now we’re gonna play in the world cup as a visitor team in Sri Lanka. Irony of fate, the skipper who took everything on himself during the world T20 2009 just to safeguard his team from hostile British and Indian media and later who led the team to a fantastic win, controversies were created thanks to board’s internal people like manager, who made the players unite against Younis Khan, had closed door individual meetings with each player, taking oath on Holy Quran, and in all these things, Shoaib Malik was the main culprit, as he was responsible for disunity in the team by being one person on one side and something else on the other side, later this thing lead to change of moods of players during New Zealand tour when some players showed fake injury after seeing a green top. Can’t they think that how much have been invested on them? Can’t they think of the emblem stitched on their expensive kits they wear and the green flag wave on the cricket ground where they play cricket? The way some players played specially the
