The ICC Conference 2011 in Hong Kong and Pakistan...

ICC surely took some tough decisions in this
conference held at Hong Kong, some were meaningful
others were meaningless, like allotting unequal
number of games among the playing nations
Atlast India have won this frontier and many congrats on it as they made Pakistan Cricket on the backfoot. But no blame game as whatever happened, is because of our own mistakes.

Why I am saying this? Its because of just 88 test matches, in which some of the India-Pakistan matches schedules are yet to be decided due to political differences between the two boards, officially it says 88 but I say not more than 78 79 test matches after Pakistan tour to Windies to the end of 2020 where this current FTP is limited to.

In it we're unsure of many tournaments which Pakistan is going to play according to FTP, but while reviewing the FTP I find out that there Pakistan has been deprived of its share of games allotted as compared to India, Australia and England, who have been playing a 5 match test series, Pakistan is only given maximum 4 match series, else its flooded with 3 match, maximum 4 match per series even against the opposition like South Africa, England, Australia, New Zealand etc.

Not counting the ODI and T20 as compared to the above mentioned ones, they are also playing the major share of ODI's as well, where Pakistan has been the third last behind Windies, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh in its quota of games to be played between the period.

I am not saying it did injustice and did and that, but the matter of fact is that there are mistakes from our end, which made us pay the price to that extend, they just capitalized the advantage they got because of us. Else Boards like BCB and SLC were/are under threat from ICC on losing its membership, PCB could had taken them in the club and tried convincing the ICC to give more share of games under its belt in this current FTP.

As far as the rules and regulation that ICC gave a press release about cricket boards without political influence, means Pakistan Cricket Board, Bangladesh Cricket Board and Sri Lanka Cricket are under direct assault and they have 24 months to bring that much change into their whole system. Although Pakistan solitary retaliated and foolishly said that political influence is required for setting up security matters for foreign and national tours etc, but I agree with the ICC on it that cricket boards are required to be elected not selected. It means that Pakistan will experience many changes in its system, influence of governing council, board of governance, which were a tale of old times will revive again.

Hoping for the best for Pakistan cricket.

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…
