Series of Dilemmas

How much further time they'll
take to leave Pakistan Cricket?
Right now when I am writing this thing, that too after hell of a days because of my mid-terms and finals during the period when Pakistan was playing its Cricket World Cup 2011 quarter-final game in Bangladesh, therefore had to take a break from this thing as after 4 weeks after that quarter-final match and 2 weeks after the final were my finals, anyways we were at change.

Everyone in Pakistan is wobbling of a change, the walls of Karachi are coloured with slogans of change this and that, like we say in Urdu "Inqilab", meaning the same as former, but they (politicians) should take lessons and motivation from our beloved Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board, who has been a brand ambassador of change himself in Pakistan's most favourite and loved sport.

Instead of changing the state of domestic utilized cricket grounds, upgrading National Stadium for Cricket in Karachi and other international grounds in Pakistan, concentrating on grass-root level, he has been concentrating more on changing the skippers to satisfy his own league of bureaucratic friends, its upto them who they want to keep and who's not. It means that they only want those in their league who're "yes boss" sort of nature, those who defy this rule are being spanked out, like they did with recently knocked out Pakistani ODI skipper Shahid Afridi, just on the basis of argument on team selection with team coach Waqar Younis, if reports are to believed true, the things were under intense coating since the conclusion of South African tour to the Emirates ODI series.

Mr. Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board has not been able to produce a long-term or a five-year plan which he believes can apply into the Pakistan Cricket, the only thing which he applied was the legacy of changing the team and its skippers on the regular interval, making it difficult for the players to get-set, which is a basic requirement, else if the people on head do not change their ways of applying things and making not-so-difficult things into catastrophe, than I fear we as Pakistanis should say our prayers and should not foresee such situation where our cricketers like players of other sports in Pakistan making their voices heard that if not than they're willing to play for some other country, this is already starting of a catastrophe and if people on head do not act on it, than that time is very near where we'd be seeing Pakistani origins playing for teams in Jungle Green, Navy Blue, Golden Yellow, or even in Burnt Blue colours kits and our own national team deprived of them. Irony....

Peace... No offence... Truth always hard to digested...

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…

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 v Pakistan 2017 - T20I series

Tomorrow marks the start for Pakistan's first foreign trip after PSL 2017, according to Pakistan time, it'd start at 9.30 pm Pakistan Time. After seeing the Caribbean Boys at this years PSL, I was expecting something extra but than I remembered that the current Windies outfit and the boys played at PSL were two different outfits. But most importantly both teams are equally poised as both are both are in their bleak, means it'd be anyone's game whatsoever, as both teams are mercurial and on their day both can have havoc on their opposite's camp.T20I squad for Pakistan
