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!

Whether you agree or not, much to learn than celebrating

More cons than pros, when we talk about the outcome of this seriesAtlast the end of Pakistan-England series about to, when Pakistan would be facing the English at Abu Dhabi tomorrow for the final and the decider T20 match, where according to the points table, both teams are equally poised but in my personal opinion, Pakistan's batting woes were exposed in this series. On the longer version, they were able to hide their weakness but in One Day and T20 series, it were exposed and not only exposed but exposed miserably. In such circumstances, even IF Pakistan able to clinch the series, still I won't be rating it as a big achievement due to genetic flaw in our batting and than fielding. Earlier it were said that out fielding and than batting were headache, I slightly differ the equation in putting batting first and than fielding, because although Pakistan DID had an exceptional 2011 but they won it on bowling basis, secondly Pakistan is going through the same phase, l…

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…
