He too, did it...

Many people will disagree with me but I
feel don't blame PCB as they're pathetic
but I didn't expect such a childish act
from him
As right now when I am writing all this, Pakistan white washed Ireland 2-0, in Belfast yesterday (Monday, 30th May 2011), but again Pakistan Cricket was under spotlight later that night, when I was about to sleep at night when news broke that former Pakistani ODI Skipper Shahid Afridi has retired from International Cricket under condition that he'll return when current cricket board will be dissolved.

Being a Shahid Afridi fan, I said to myself mate you did just right, as whatever was happening with you recently means that such an action was on cards. But later on when I thoroughly went through all this fiasco, I felt that PCB was on fault but Afridi on the other hand was not right in going for an emotional tactic.

Why I am saying so?
Because in an corporate organization (don't wanna say PCB though), one must has to follow the rules and regulations of an organization whether you like it or not, its obligatory. If Afridi had some sort of problems with management, he should have created some lobbying so that he may get some favour against the PCB which could had made his case a lot stronger than right now, as right now when I am writing this, PCB has terminated his central contract and thinking of sending another show-cause notice to him! That's what I feel decisions made on emotions backfire, this is the prove of it.

Reasons to prove:
1. If PCB was so hostile than weren't there any other options other than exposing your aces?

2. If he felt he was not treated the way he should have been, than there were other ways to expose them instead of exposing them in front of Pakistani media, which has been without a sense of patriotism and will publish any report without confirming that whether it'll help the country or not!

3. If he was having problems with management, than he should had gone for a step-by-step revelation, instead of direct revelation, consequences he's already facing. I feel the current PCB will put him under such restrictions that he'll find it difficult to return from that exile, even though if PCB changes.

4. There are ways like putting your case in front of the board of directors of PCB. I know those people are also sold out but still there was some moral gap than that yeah I put my case over there that's why I am taking such drastic steps, than PCB won't had any chance for explanation.

5. He could had taken a diplomatic step that he complained of having players respecting problems, he could had made a league of his own comprises of former skippers in this tenure and than he could had put pressure on the PCB, that could had worked.

The reason I am writing all this, there were alternatives but taking a drastic step to show he was innocent and others were doing wrongly to him, is a childish act, because already retirements from a Pakistani player has been a joke as they retire and they come back. What I feel the definition of retire is to end, finish and not to continue, what sort of retirement is this? Like some English communication errors, we're using redundant and ambiguous terminologies like partial retirement etc. Already Pakistani Cricket has suffered alot because of this "partial retirement sort of blackmailing", this should be stopped by any means. Respectable nations don't do such pathetic acts to deteriorate their country's impression and let their country's flag to go down, when our players will learn it? Time will tell

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…
