Be ready to be COOKed at Lord's!

Returned after a long gap because I was busy with my university's flood relieve activities!

Atlast Pakistan did win in this series, that too with comprehensive performances from our bowlers and similarly equal unsatisfying performance with bats in hand! Apart from some +vs, one negative aspect to be have great note of is that Alastair Cook, the English opener has shown some sort of form in the second innings of the test played at the Brit Oval, and so the next test starting in 2 days time from the time I am writing this thing, it would be a great test for Pakistani batters to bat on and score heavily to get English into some sorta trouble!

Again even though MoYo have been included but still batting looks bleak and the whole burden is on Moyo. Even if England won the toss and elected to bat first, there's sniff of a chance that Pakistan might replay the same performance they had in England's first inning, and if Pakistan bat first, I personally don't think Pakistan can't post a score more than 250. So lets see how the situation and conditions end up in London that day!


  1. INSHALLAH we will win Lords test and draw the series... just hope for the best. Bowlers are really performing well... we can just pray for our batting line and fielding!
    Pakistan should not bat first...I think they wont give a better total.
    I do agree with you...Undoubtedly, M.Yousuf has made his presence felt..but we can't depend on just Yousuf. we need a team performance to win this test.
    I must appreciate Aamer.. what a talent.Wish he isn't wasted as many cricketers have been in Pakistan..

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…
