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

ICC surely took some tough decisions in thisconference held at Hong Kong, some were meaningfulothers were meaningless, like allotting unequalnumber of games among the playing nationsAtlast 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…

Sri Lankan Premier League and BCCI... What's next?

I personally can't understand objections by BCCI on not sending its players to SLPL I gotta say, we South Asians are pretty good in creating a drama, of whatever the reason. At one end we have BCCI who have been acting like a GodFather of cricketing world, on the contrary, there's a buffoon as chairman of the slot, who is only busy in giving job opportunities to retired personnel of whatever the field, they just have to have some sort of hello hi with him. On the contrary, I must say, that Sri Lanka has been a victim, as during the recently concluded Cricket World Cup 2011, it was the only full fledged team, as a host who was deprived of playing its full quota of home games at HOME (remember, their last game against the Kiwis was at Wankhede, Mumbai, although it was a home game for Sri Lanka), secondly it didn't got its match fees and broadcast money from BCCI, as we all know today most of the construction wo…

Are heroes treated like that?

Not only Afridi but there are many playerswho were disgraced in current cricketboard'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 cl…
