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 Khuwahishain Aisi, 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 thing slightly favoring Pakistan is from the heavens, it has been raining ☔ since I came home from office around 2 pm Pakistan time. But another what if; India wins the toss and elected to bowl first? Something like Asia Cup opener on cards for Pakistan? I wish not but the ground realities confirms something else. Let the best team wins and I hope and wish Pakistan team wins.

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…
