World T20 for Pakistan

A day for mourning for Pakistan cricket

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 cricket requires a self exile since Pakistan do requires professionals as PCB is supposed to be a professional organization and therefore it should be run by the professionals. Empower domestic cricket by planning, how to prepare a product, because sorry to say Pakistan Cricket as a Marketing product is something I wished but sorry to say no sign of it. It'd take at least 5 years to generate a new breed,because since the retirement of Inzamam, Saeed Anwar etc we are deprived of finding new batsmen and fielder's.


Major thing since Pakistan cricket do requires planning because;

  1. Pakistan domestic cricket structure is not monotone, once it is A, next time it is B and afterwards it is C. Though my suggestion is just like ICC FTP I. E. The future tours program, it should follow a format which is equally applicable on every district teams of provinces, I say provinces because Provinces do require outsourcing services, because this is the way things are being operated today and therefore they'll be expanding their franchise on regular basis. 
  2. The prime of these provincial basis reforms will be selection into #PSL, District level will be a filter for overall prime tournament I. E. The Pakistan Super League aka PSL. If such kind of system is in progress, Pakistan Cricket Board aka The PCB would be generating funds on themselves, because city and district teams would mean evolution of School, College and University level Cricket, which will definitely earn some bucks for PCB alongside their domestic because franchises will be investing in marketing of their product so they'll be hiring media houses so a culture of inter district border games would be generated which is good for cricket and for the Pakistani team. 
  3. Since each and every district franchise would have their media power, therefore it'd create a competitiveness and a system, and since it'd be a franchised district based system, our infrastructure I. E. Cricket key grounds, accommodation, facilities etc would improve gradually Read English County and Australian circuit.
Postscript : a franchise based tertiary or district based system is now the need of the time since, every team has evolved themselves from 2009; those teams who had problems in facing spin are now competitive and slowly tilt of playing spin well is tilting towards NZ which was supposed to be our jewel. This thing is the requirement of the time and therefore for that at least we would be requiring a 5 years time to create a culture and similarly for earning bucks depending on our domestic circuit instead of international Ventures. Pakistan do requires an exile from international cricket for at least 5 years.
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…

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
