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...

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…
