World T20 ended for Pakistan

Thank god this mental torture of Pakistan's batting disorder ended in good, at least now we can have some relaxation, thank god Pakistan left for home after playing the second round of the WorldT20 event 2014. Pathetic gonna be small word for elaborating their (Pakistan's) performance in Bangladesh.

My findings on why this catastrophe occurred;


Muhammad Hafeez showed ups and down in his captaincy, the way he led the troops after losing the toss, required great mental toughness, like MSD at times shows. Lack of maturity in Hafeez clearly exposed in Hafeez. The #PAKvWI match if Pakistan lost, could had lost fighting like #AUSvPAK match, I agree pitch was turning (maybe cuz of underprepared pitches, I am sorry my Bangali colleagues), but still the trick was to stay on the pitch. Saqlain Mushtaq only incorporated this tactic that to involve Pakistanis into spin quads so that faster bowlers are not required to be bowled, and that's where Hafeez missed the trick.

That's why I love Misbah for it, cuz he plays the role of anchor in Pakistani team or like MSD and Virat for India.


Pakistan believed that their bowling can win them matches, keeping in mind, cricket is the game of batting bowling and fielding, batters do the scoring and bowlers do the maintaining the pressure, so when you don't score sufficiently than how can you believe you win matches? Agreed earlier they won us the matches, but teams make strategy all the time, they knew that Pakistan are depending on Ajmal heavily.

I HAVE to admit it, Indians played smartly over it, they prepared a team where everyone plays it's part, in some games, JADDU plays, in some Virat, in some etc. Whereas everyone in the cricketing world, can count whom we're relying on. Being a sports-lover, I have to admit this faact.


Pakistan should get rid of چلے ہوئے کارتوس and incorporate fresh blood and never than less, incorporate foreign staff at NCA, and increase the span of NCA across the country so that new talent can be breed and behind every player there should be 2 to 3 players, like we had in 80's and 90's. Like we had in Wills Cup those days when we got talents like Wasim Akram, Moin Khan Aqib Javaid, Inzamam-ul-Haq etc, so now why aren't we applying the same now? Sorry to say but this Faysal Bank series is just cosmetic, nothing fruitful, and induction of such series' is more of commercial than talent hunt. عقل اور ہوش کے ناخن لو عقل کے دشمنوں! 

India is supposed to be arch-rivals but we should also read them why they are successful.


Get rid of Shoaib Malik, Akmal brothers @ once. Umar Akmal may be a great talent but he is playing for Pakistan, that thing should be noted to him for sure instead of treating him like a untouchable star. apply two three backups behind playing subject, so that he HAS to perform to retain his position in the team.

Hope so, others agree with me on it!

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…

West Indies v Pakistan 2017 - T20I series

Tomorrow marks the start for Pakistan's first foreign trip after PSL 2017, according to Pakistan time, it'd start at 9.30 pm Pakistan Time. After seeing the Caribbean Boys at this years PSL, I was expecting something extra but than I remembered that the current Windies outfit and the boys played at PSL were two different outfits. But most importantly both teams are equally poised as both are both are in their bleak, means it'd be anyone's game whatsoever, as both teams are mercurial and on their day both can have havoc on their opposite's camp.T20I squad for Pakistan
