Nervous times for Pakistan

Today is the all awaited encounter for Pakistani fans, its not a Pakistani team's match but its encounter between Bangladesh and Australia, this match will clear the dust from the points table of Group A which is still undecided whether who's going to be the leader of this group. Pakistan already have played its quota of two matches, one comprehensive win against Bangladeshis and one lost against Aussies against them, we lost miserably and the advantage we gained in win against Bangladeshis was all drained in next 24 hours when we lost against the Aussies in our second encounter and in return we lost the match and probably early exit in the tournament, because Pakistan's inclusion in the tournament is dependent on Australia Bangladesh's match.

If I were the skipper of this Pakistan side, like I said is one of reply's that this would have been my last option to depend on other team's result.

Even if we had lost the match but had reduced the defeat margin, and not bowled out completely than the scenario would be different and Australia had to play today's match with a pressure of surviving in this tournament, but we ourselves gave this advantage to Australia and now don't wanna be strict but Australia is playing today's match with its own terms and conditions, and we are dependent on them whether we can stay in this tournament or not!

Its just humiliating for me being a Pakistani to be so much dependent on others, for somewhat its ok but totally dependency is another thing and I discourage it being a Pakistani...

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
