Hit me hard!

Yesterday after listening to Younis Khan's allegations that he was banned without giving him a chance to clarify his position on his indefinite ban imposed by the PCB claiming he was one of the responsible person for creating anarchy in the team during the disastrous tour of down-under 2009-2010.

I am curious to know that after the ODI leg of concluded test series in New Zealand, which was played in Dubai, Younis Khan had resigned as the leader of the team and in place of him, Muhammad Yousuf was made the skipper of the side for New Zealand and Australia tour, and he (Younis Khan) was only available for the 5 ODI series against the Aussies, so how can he be responsible when things were starting to topsy turvy just at the eve of test series played in New Zealand where he was not available neither as captain nor as a player.

It was the responsibility of team management to prevent this situation as soon as possible, and because it was the failure of management more than the players, PCB instead of punishing and fining heavily to the players (they should have punished the players) they should have emphasized more on managerial disturbance during the tour.

But Irony of Fate, the manager of that team who created all this controversy was one of the seated members of the inquiry committee headed by Wasim Bari, C.O.O. of Pakistan Cricket Board a.k.a. Paindoo Cricket Board.

Younis Khan also mentioned that Shoaib Malik created all the drama, as Malik thought that Khan created such results to dump him (Malik) as a captain, and that's where differences emerged, and he tried to convey the message to PCB but in return he was gifted with an indefinite ban.

In the end our parliamentarians should have acted sensibly and people like Jamshed Dasti who have been criticizing Khan of match fixing allegations, I personally ask him, is he saying all these crap on the basis of solid reasons, proves or justifications or these allegations are also like his fake BA degree in Islamic Studies? It has literally ruined Younis Khan's crystal clear career. Although Khan would be having attitude problem but it doesn't matter the most when he plays for the team and scores for the team, at the end of the day this is what really matters.

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…

West Indies v Pakistan 2017 - T20I series

Tomorrow marks the start for Pakistan's first foreign trip after PSL 2017, according to Pakistan time, it'd start at 9.30 pm Pakistan Time. After seeing the Caribbean Boys at this years PSL, I was expecting something extra but than I remembered that the current Windies outfit and the boys played at PSL were two different outfits. But most importantly both teams are equally poised as both are both are in their bleak, means it'd be anyone's game whatsoever, as both teams are mercurial and on their day both can have havoc on their opposite's camp.T20I squad for Pakistan
