Start of Pakistan's Journey in World T20

Today at 10.30 PM Pakistan Standard Time i.e. +5 GMT, Pakistan is going to start its journey in World T20 against Bangladeshis who have been gaining some form which have been seen in recently concluded series' against England and India at home, so this time it wont be that much easy winning against them. Although record show that their last win in WT20 was back in South Africa edition in 2007, and against Pakistan, Pakistan have the upper edge against them winning all 3 matches overall.

But like I mentioned earlier I am not a great fan of rating the teams on stats or past performance. Sign of improvement have been shown in Bangladeshi cricket team just like before the eve of 1996 Cricket World Cup in South Asia, Sri Lanka improved themselves to be a tough competitors in presence of Pakistan and India in the region, similarly the case I've been seeing with Bangladesh.

They already have beaten the best sides in ODIs like Australia, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka too, and Bangladeshi's have already beaten us in 1999 CWC in England in a league encounter, so one must say the Bengal tigers are starting to roar.

On the other hand, if I narrate what stats mention, Pakistan have the upper hand, although Bengal skipper mentioned they will exploit the turmoil which Pakistan cricket has faced since its concluded disaster tour of down-under earlier this year. So Pakistan should keep note of it, because I am sorry to say but they'll try to exploit no doubt about it, and we already have an example set by our elder when they took men from the land of Irish too much easy and they had shown what they were capable of, as we've been playing international cricket so its not a good idea to take them easy, because we must admit they are a good and better unit than us when fielding is concerned and where we lag alot.

Lets hope next morning when I wake up I'd have a Pakistan 2 - 0 Bangladesh scoreline.

Let the best team win!

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…
