Pakistan v Zimbabwe - at last

Thank you Zimbabwe cricket for bringing the smiles on
the faces of Pakistani people
At last, Pakistani grounds are going to be used for staging Pakistani home games, after eternity. Thank you Zimbabwe Cricket for the support. The (Zimbabweans) do require our support in those regards, which is quite logical, like having a return trip to their country in return.


Other than Zimbabwe, Ireland also expect to be traveling to Pakistan for a complete tour, which I am expecting they (The PCB authority) might be staging some games in Karachi as well, for which we Karachiites are also deprived of.

Zimbabwe tour to Pakistan

Zimbabwe's tour to Pakistan - 2015, cricket in Pakistan after 2009. Initially being played at Lahore amid security conditions, initially it was swapped thanks to Karachi incident, but still since cricket must go on, Zim did come to Pakistan so that they can also have some competitive cricket in a test playing country. Though Zimbabwe did lose both their T20I, still it is the first drop of the rain.

What is for Pakistan?
Pakistan can use this tour
to attract other teams to tour
troubled country

Pakistan can use this tour to;
  1. Gain confidence of other countries,
  2. Grooming youngsters,
  3. Bring crowd to grounds,
  4. Improve ODI ratings,
These are the factors which Pakistan is heavily relying on, because a home series at home is more beneficial than playing the same abroad. We faced this fiasco because of our so called 'buffoon' Chairman Mr. Ijaz Butt, had he had some logical intelligence, cricket might still been played in Pakistan, shame that a cricket starved team's several players are first time playing an international game in Pakistan. Not blaming others but reality is, we gave them chance to exploit us.

Nevertheless

Hope that Ireland tour must go on, initially I must say, they should play the said series on a smaller scale, so that things do not get out of control.

Peace...

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…
