Lime, Spot or Floodlite???

Although he might be right in his assessments but
still it might be a tactic to bring spotlight to an
entangled Pakistani side.

I was going through different cricketing blogs when Mahela Jayawerdena's article on his blog went through, where he said that Pakistan's also a contender for winning the Cricket World Cup.


But being a cynical in nature person, I'd say that it's just a tactic to being Pakistan into spotlight, so that others would read them. Although they're already rated as the dark horses but being dark horses and being in spotlight and contender for the trophy are two different things.


Why I am saying so?
I feel that Pakistani cricket team would be less under pressure when no one's expecting from them. Plus his own Sri Lankan team would like to transfer the pressure from them to Pakistanis, as they're playing at their home and apart from having home advantage there can also be pressure along with, Pakistan on the other hand suppose to play all their pool games in Lanka, would be less in pressure. So I'll take it as a tactic instead of praising dark horses.


Last but not the least
Although Pakistan have a good record against the Lankan Lions, can't say of a World Cup game played in Lanka but overall, but this time Lankan team is looking to change that legacy as on paper they look more stable side than Pakistan, having home advantage too...

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…
