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...

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…

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…
