Are heroes treated like that?

Not only Afridi but there are many players
who were disgraced in current cricket
board's tenure.
After a week long gap, I'm again in a mood to write one, as dust from Afridi-PCB controversy starting to settle as Afridi withdraw his petition against the PCB and made himself available for the hearing at PCB HQ. On the other hand PCB gifted him with hefty fines and with that gave him a PCB NOC which means he can now play his remaining stint with UK County Hampshire and the SLPL.

Since 8th of October 2008, when this Azaab-e-Ilahi (God's Curse), imposed on us in the shape of PCB chairman, following the support with some of the in-power political parties and parties in the opposition, has ruined and deteriorated Pakistan's and Pakistan Cricket's image once and for all, It'll take sometime to get these wounds healed.

We lost players like MoYo and Younis just because they came in against of the Butt's dictatorship. They claim that we got rid of dictatorship but I say a new sort of idiotic dictatorship has been imposed on us where no one's accountable on the top but the sub-ordinates do.

I am too young to have a memory of PCB's history but whatever I heard and searched about PCB from my elders and from the internet, I never found a clue that so many players went in against of the administrator of the PCB to the court in a same tenure. Players had to have a visit to Provincial High Courts in order to gain some justice against the PCB. I don't know why and what in the world making them so complacent to take action against this buffoon in human shape. Neither he has provided with a future plan for Pakistan cricket, nor invested in PCB property like Grounds, infrastructures etc, but in order to get positive gestures from the people in power, he has created an International Cricket Ground in Garhi Khuda Bukhsh. I do not object on this construction of ground but what guarantee do they give it'd be well maintained, unlike National Stadium in Karachi, which is under shattered, although they've worked so much on the outfield but what about the outlook of the ground? Similarly with a domestically used PCB held cricket ground recently constructed at Mirpurkhas, Sindh, which outer walls were on ground when last year torrential rains after Cyclone Phet hit Thatta and adjourning areas.

Talking about players, this is not the first time that a senior has retaliated against the current administration of the PCB, Younis Khan who won us the 2009 WT20 stint in the UK also came under fire, than MoYo and so on and so forth. I just thank Almighty Inzamam-ul-Haq retired on the right time, else the kinda respect and response he got from everyone wasn't even thinkable. Already we're famous in the World for not respecting our seniors when they retired, they came up with a boom and die with a spark like a star whose life's diminished with just a spark of light and than its a history. I don't think after great Imran Khan and Javed Miandad, I don't remember we gave a standing ovation to an outgoing sports personality, whether it comes to two great W's. Saqlain Mushtaq, who innovated the Doosra Ball, Shoaib Akhtar, even those who're in and are in hot waters although because of their own, the PCB should have had supported them whatsoever, we should not forget many of our current cricket team players' hail from humble background, so when PCB is spending so much in creating their own housing societies and etc, they should invest in their own players because of them, the PCB is able to generate money but instead of investing them into their players, they're using them in themselves, and let players to play for foreign leagues, to earn, instead of doing something like that on their own ground. I was hearing about PPL or PCL whatsoever since Pakistan played that famous Karachi test against the Indians in 2006-07 season, had they started it on war-approach, if they had started PPL or PCL back than, eventhough attack on Sri Lankan team would had happened, atleast we'd had some source of earning and similarly up-to-date upgrade of our grounds, or at Dubai, Sharjah and/or Abu Dhabi. It could had been a profitable venture in whatever the circumstances.

Look what India have gained from their domestic multimillion tournament, they've up-to-date ground facilities, they are able to have back-benches populated so that there's backup to every single player, on the contrary I need not to mention what's the situation in Pakistan, even those who do not watch cricket know what's and where's wrong! Instead of spending time in investing and creating new ways of generating incomes, they are wasting their energies in court visits and Uncle Butt's foreign trips with the team. May Allah bless us all, Ameen.

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…
