Stop Pakistan Phobia in the neighbourhood

Pakistan's league ain't for shadowing IPL, mind you!!!
Atlast, a sting operation on Indian domestic players. I was watching a video, where the same TV channel which had sting operation on Indian domestic players, currently being played in the fifth edition of IPL, admitting that they were taking amounts for spot-fixing, means those players which were categorized for 35lacs, were taking amounts for 1Crores.

When such things are gonna happen with a PREMIER LEAGUE, thank god we as Pakistanis weren't comparing our Faysal Bank T20 tournament with them. Our former players were saying that this IPL is a fuss. No quality cricket whatsoever (sorry if it hurts my Indian colleagues, but like the way that video uploader said, talk on logics).

First of ALL

1. Tournaments are sponsored

One must have a clear knowledge about the format of MODERN DAY CRICKET that today, cricket is being sponsored by MNC's, whether it comes to sponsoring domestic tournaments, why should I go so far, in Pakistan our domestic tournaments are being sponsored by Faysal Bank which itself has its roots from Abu Dhabi group, than Emirates Airline, than Zong which is a China Mobile concern, than there's Nokia which is sponsoring Karachi Dolphins. So bragging that how the economy of Pakistan could bear the expense, its the responsibility of organizers and sponsors. Economy can only facilitate, and mind you, there is a Multi-National Cellular Company in India which has its regional hub in Islamabad Pakistan, than we have Mobilink Pakistan which is an Orascom Telecommunication concern, which doesn't require any introduction.


2. Failure State????

Who have given Indians right to call Pakistan as a failure state? Have they forgot their times when their Hindi Language was at shudders, they used to label Pakistani products as Indians, have they forgot that? Plus due to slump in Global Economy crunch, things are worsened I admit but atleast still in Pakistan we do not see such scenes that people sleeping outside when they were killed citing car drove over them, if we're a failure state, we do not possess such things that people sleeping outside in such manner like we see in Bangalore, Mumbai etc.


3. Retired Players...

Another thing which they are bragging is that retired/rejected players from the IPL are being inducted into PPL, first of all PPL is not confirmed name since PCB chief already confirmed this, second we are emphasizing more on redemption of International Cricket in Pakistan. Yes, security not good, but that too at the border touching to Afghanistan, where there is US army so its their failure, not ours. The motive of Pakistani tournament is to resume cricket in Pakistan, not to generate a money machine, Indians are real good in it.

4. Media Coordination

All of this fuss about redemption of cricket in Pakistan was interpreted as copying Indians in Indian Premier League. Ahem Ahem! Wait, Pakistanis copying Indians? کیا گنگا الٹی بہہ رہی ہے؟؟؟؟ seriously that's a joke of the millennium, no doubt Indians are creative and innovative but mind you, Pakistanis also not far behind. Its just that we are behind them in Media War.


We were the ones who bought Sri Lanka into world cricket and helped them developing the infrastructure them, though being a Pakistani I'm ashamed that we were not able to host them properly in their last tour to my country, but we were the ones, who bought variation into modern day cricket by introducing sweep, reverse swing etc. Indians are much better in capitalizing on the already aided advantage. Though being a sensible Pakistani, I must say, Pakistan's league shouldn't be inaugurated this year, but on the contrary this tournament is not to shadow IPL. Indians should be happy for it. We as Pakistani cricket fans want cricket to be played in Gaddafi Stadium Lahore, National Stadium Karachi, Niaz Stadium Hyderabad Sindh, Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium Pindi. Try to differentiate, Indians...

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…

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…
