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 people

  • Marketing 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 watching the game etc. Nothing like that was ever seen from the PCB themselves. Money no doubt is important but Corporate Social Norms are also something to be taken not for granted.

Empty stadiums

What about the youngsters, playing in empty stadiums? We needed to market it properly so that we could see future stars today.

I don't know what PCB is doing

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…

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.
