Boom Boom did it!

It must have looked well if this mistake of
having two stars on a single crescent could
had been avoided by using the impression
of crescent with PCB's star.
On a personal note, I've a so so rating with this current cricket team's kit for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. Liked the innovative style of this kitting specially when for the first time, Pakistan also went for polling on and BoomBoom Cricket (the official kit supplier for Pakistan Cricket), just like the way Indians and other cricket boards do, and one must acknowledge that fact Boom Boom is really doing its best to have some innovation, and promotion strategies, else when Slazenger or other kit manufacturers had the contract for manufacturing rights of kits for Pakistan, they didn't promote it for Pakistan team's fan whether it was 2007 ICC World T20 Kit, or 2009 ICC World T20 kit, they were not as promoted as this current kit is on sales in departmental stores atleast in Karachi. As a matter of fact right now when I am writing all this, I am wearing the practice kit which was on sale at a departmental store at N. Nazimabad, which has been a change else the approach previously was way too obscured.

But the reason I am writing all this is not to overshadow the creative work by Boom Boom but to criticize the PCB authority who're thought to be the observing body for cricket control in Pakistan, made such a lag in selecting the design of current Pakistani kit, they should had selected this one, no doubt the colour combination they used is best and its representing the ideological colours of Pakistan with its star and crescent but my very first impression while watching that kit on Boom Boom Cricket website, I felt that they should had placed crescent in a manner that it should be placed in contact with the star of Pakistan Cricket Board, instead of creating another star to complete it. Every cricket board of the world tries to put their flag's symbol or national identity's impression on their national cricket team's clothing because its a nation's pride on which a nation is proud of.

Australia usually places their 6 pointed stars' impression on their gears, India has their cricket board's "gol chakra" impression in their sides, under the sleeves. Sri Lanka has their Lion's impression usually in their front, so it ridiculous to even think how PCB allowed this design without having some slight modification to this gear.
It must have looked well if instead of showing the whole crescent, they should have had used the impression of crescent along with the star of Pakistan Cricket Board to complete the crescent + star emblem. It must have looked much better than this one...

Anyways it'd be rude of me if I not acknowledge Boom Boom's hard work for working day and night for manufacture of this brilliant kit, with respect to the input they got from Pakistan Cricket Board, as the gear manufacturer takes pride in manufacturing the official gear with the input from the home cricket board.

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…

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…
