Sick man's old dream... No doubt

Before working properly on this proposal of
staging a home-game in Pakistan, should remain
realistic of the ground realities.
By the time I am writing this, Pakistan have won their first ODI against the Irish. Too bad the game was not telecast on television but still there was not that much hype created for this match as well.

But the real test gonna start for Pakistan in late October when its gonna host Sri Lankans, the current ICC CWC 2011 finalists. It'll be great test for Pakistan on the whole, not only for Pakistani Cricket Team, and (Pathetic performing) Pakistan Cricket Board but also Pakistani Government and Authority, as rumours which prevails in Pakistan that talks have been under going with Lankan authorities for staging Pakistan's home games against Lankans in Pakistan. I personally feel its a sick man's old dream (I am not working on Indian mentality but we should admit reality, the kind of incompetent government sadly we possess I have to admit, we are not in a position to stage an international game against a major opponent in Pakistan.

Winning confidence of the foreign teams is another thing but possessing self-competence is another. When our Eastern and Western borders are not safe enough from intruders so how in the world can we say that we are in a position to stage our home-games in Pakistan? First we should clear-up our own collars with the mess created by our own and than try to look into their eyes, else we'll be laughing matter internationally like we're these days.

Until we do not clear up the mess (this is a time wasting exercise, whoever created it), we should not risk calling teams to play in Pakistan, although its expensive staging games abroad but that's the only option we're left with because of our own in-competency. If I were at the place of Butt, I'd had ceased all international cricketing activities, and would had worked on the grass-root level level upgrade of cricket grounds, infrastructure, facilities, working on B and C teams, just like Proteas authorities did and when they returned, they returned with a bang in 1992, they have their share of weaknesses but their weaknesses are camouflaged by their strong points. Why can't we learn from them? Lets hope and keep our fingers crossed, and hope so in future we can expect something better...

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…
