Younus Khan and 'The Pakistan Cup'

As far as the only thing going on in Pakistan cricket, is 'The Pakistan Cup' itself, and like in the preceding article, I wasn't hopeful with it, because it was being organized as a formality, not with interest or passion, which if required for the organization of a tournament which was supposed to be a World Cup sorta tournament for Pakistan cricket, but staging it only in Faisalabad is what I am skeptical, because a tournament representing Pakistan, should be organized in different cities of Pakistan on Home and Away basis, where we could had utilized underutilized vicinity like Hyderabad, Sheikhupura, etc. but because this tournament is being staged as a FORMALITY only, therefore such opportunities doesn't matter at all for these buffoons.

As far as the title is concerned, Younus Khan aka YK has left 'TPC' citing misbehavior of umpire, which also exposes the incompetent umpires in our SO CALLED domestic cricket.

Peace.

The Pakistan Cup

So called PCB management now initiated 'Pakistan Cup', on the screen it looks like a good one but in longer run it wont be beneficial because of many things. Reason Involvement of peopleMarketing of this event was done in hurry, as if one night they got a dream the same day, they started the program.There is no criteria for watching the game on the stadium, because the main purpose for events like that should be first to bring the crowd to the stadium, secondly grooming the youngsters. We don't want an All Stars IX. Lack of media Ok, many media houses are sponsoring them, but what about social media? Why isn't a hash tag or something more of that was defined? Here we have to present this as a product, which could be used as a yardstick for future programs. Future domestic program  There should be a future domestic program drafted for Pakistan cricket so that we as fans of Pakistan cricket should also be involved like after office hours going to the stadium for watchi…

World T20 for Pakistan

Today marks the anniversary for Pakistan winning Cricket World Cup 1992, in Australia. Similarly a memorandum for Pakistan AGAIN not making a spot in next round for two successive world T20 event. It is a shame whatsoever, because it WAS supposed to be a team which was powerful enough to Topsy Turvy any side,but now the way team is slowing down on crucial moments and not accelerating on the right time is something hurting us as Pakistani cricket fans; that too on the anniversary of 1992 cricket world cup triumph. What to do? Initially, (it's my personal opinion) have mercy on Pakistan cricket and stop 'commercial'ism for the time being and invest on domestic cricket which means the new breed, because monopoly in every aspect hurts, and obviously post 2012, this decay algorithm has been deteriorated and similarly we are, as Wasim Akram said 10 years behind to even Bangladesh, India two times ahead of even Bangladesh and we lie behind Bangladesh. Self exile Pakistan cric…

World T20 2016 Pakistan v India clash

Today, I was talking with a colleague of mine at the office, like me he was also a skeptic and was not expecting much of positive result for Pakistan, not because Mauka Mauka but the fact was fragile batting. I agreed with him that no doubt we batted pretty well against Bangladesh, but still if we also go through the recent history of Indian cricket when they have been down, they have returned with flying Colours.Many of sentimental colleagues of mine were saying Pakistan will thrash them out for sure, being a Pakistani I myself wants the same but Hazaro KhuwahishainAisi, because whatever happened to India against the untested Spin Trio of New Zealand has gone, and off late I have seen India going away off such or similar situation on regular. So useless to say, India on paper and on ground the best team to take the game. Because given the situation, India will go for the kill, and like Saurav Ganguly said, the conditions and the pitch will suit India more than Pakistan. The only thin…

Get rid of Najam Sethi

He might be king of 'chidya', hijacker of original PSL idea, but still instead of bringing goods, he has brought more of a manace to Pakistan cricket. We started losing to Bangladesh in 2015 but I was seeing their gradual improvement from 2010 T20 world event, were they sleeping all these times? If the cycle of WT20 goes as it is going since 2010, when 2009 hosts win 2010, 2010 hosts win 2012, 2012 hosts win 2014, God forbid now Bangladesh. Even if they improved, so this is on your part that why didn't you improve from the time being. There's management for everything, and this is lame excuse that we didn't get home conditions. India didn't had lanky quick bowlers but because of their management, they have earned it. Where were your skills? The only skills I saw were of sycophancy. I'll never forgive you how you supported the Big 3. And I am curious why isn't an inquiry being set on you why you supported them. You came as a mafia, hijacked and tamed. Co…

Salman Butt

People call me skeptical and rightly so because I do not trust people that much easily and therefore I am a tough person to tackle with. Similarly, now the news about incorporation of a Crook named Salman Butt, who had sold his motherland for personal gains, wearing Pakistan Jersey, is being justified for playing for Pakistan. Because these buffoons say not much of a talent in batting. Had I being the chairman of PCB, I would had suspended international cricket Ventures, letting them (all Pakistani team) play domestic and league games, groom and accordingly I'd had upgraded the facilities stationed,and than launching a revamped side would had benefitted. Why a چلا ہوا کارتوس being used again and again? Are the morons out of their minds? But sorry to say, we as a nation out of the mind as well because when I was saying that I don't have grudge with Amir but I am humiliated because a talented Amir is being used to bring a corrupt Salman Butt and Muhammad Asif, but sorry to say p…

Pakistan Super League - over ambitious stuff

Yesterday, i.e. the 4th of February, 2016 - the hyped and over-whelming event for Pakistan cricket the PSL was launched. From a marketing perspective, it might prove to be a beneficial event but sorry to say when it comes to talent hunting, won't help a dime sorry for being sarcastic because the approach is not appropriate.

They were ambitious for the event but not for the revival of cricket in Pakistan, had there been an Indian in their place, he/she might had dropped that query to cash-in the prospect of coming to a country where in general foreign players won't want to play. Plus like we say in Urdu, کرنے والے تو بنو،  I'd look into the Australian model, they revamped their domestic tournament into a T20 league, I used that term revamped on purpose, because they were already working on the model and therefore they didn't need to delete an event/domestic tournament to make way for a new tournament. Secondly their motive was to promote their cricket instead of bring …
