Just found this video while looking for some cricket highlights. This guy is the coolest batsman, I have ever seen. Enjoy, if you have 15 minutes to kill..

Miss tuk ul Haq

February 29, 2012

I might not be wrong by saying that, Misbah ul Haq is Anti Imran Khan. I am not talking about politics, this argument is purely based on Captaining abilities. Imran Khan had a great role in Pakistani cricket history for setting up a role model of captaining the cricketing side. His motto was, ” Offense is the best form of defense”.

Misbah ul Haq defends, “Defense is the best form of defense”. Which, somehow have worked for Pakistani team in test form of cricket. I am not a impressed by his captaining abilities, sometimes extremely negative approach of play the game. But, on the other hand, I have to say the he is the best in what squad we have at the moment.

 

Gracious in Defeat..England!

February 9, 2012

This shouldn’t be a ‘news of the world’ anymore that they are not gracious winners or even losers for that sake. Even, writing about it is bit of a cliche’, I would rather like to quote dictionary.

Sore Loser

1-            “A sore loser is someone who loses in a fair competition but whines about it on a constant basis, blaming  everyone around them for their loss except themselves. Fun to taunt, but no fun to play with.”

  • “Stop throwing chess pieces at me, ya damn sore loser!
  • “Stop blaming the swing, ya damn sore losers!”

2-           Someone who can’t simply be honorable, by accepting defeat and/or trying again. On the contrary, said individual or group engages in childish pissing and moaning; bitching about how it’s not fair and the other side cheated, etc.

  • “What about Saeed Ajmal? Ya damn sore losers!”

 

 

 

*Reference – Urban Dictionary.

An unbiased person would at least give this to one team, for whatever reason the conclusion seems very obvious. In last ten years we have seen best of the records broken in test and one day forms of the game. Certain teams been compared to the eighties West Indian cricket side.

You hate it or love it, when it comes to bringing the game ‘Cricket’ exciting, no other team has came close to Pakistani cricket team.

 

Pakistan Vs No 1 Team

January 28, 2012

A disappointing day for Indian cricket team turned out to be very exciting day for Pakistan. Stunning win over England can prove to be a turning point for Pakistan cricket, which has been under a lot of pressure for last couple of years.

Keeping it short today, I would require some time to digest this win, it’s been a long time coming.

 

Indians in Australia 2012

January 15, 2012

Today, in Perth Indian team was humiliated again in the third test against Australia, in as many games. It was dubbed as the India’s best chance to win a test series in Australia in last four decades but it has turned out to be a sheer disappointed.

As the match's results were obvious: I'd rather put pics of beutiful Perth City here.

Perth City from Swan River

Indian nightmare in Australia is continuing with another huge defeat in Sydney. India has their best chance to equal the series 1-1, as Sydney Cricket Ground was relatively favorable to their batting lineup. From the day one Sydney pitch favored the batsmen but Indians couldn’t take advantage of winning the toss.

MS Dhoni has a cool head as a captain, but his captaincy decisions are being questioned in the series and they will be scrutinized as the series will progress. India has been avoiding the issue of their ageing middle order for a while but this is the time for some senior’s players to think for the country and give way for younger batsmen, likes of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. VVS Laxman has not been performing for a few series now and ‘The Wall’ seems to have holes in it. Rahul Dravid ‘The Wall’, who is known for his text book technique has some astounding figures of getting out bowled. He stands no 2 on hall of shame now; 52 times his wood has been rattled. He might lead the list by the end of this series.

Hole in 'The Wall'

Rahul Dravid

Along the perforated wall Sachin Tendulkar is the only beacon holder for the old group. Sachin seems to be haunted by that illusive hundred that he has been chasing for a while now. Australia, on the other hand, has emerged, once again as the dominant force that they used to be.  They have been finding some good pace bowlers but those bowlers, but some of them were made to look mediocre during last Ashes.

Alike India, Australian team has a section ready to be admitted to retirement village but pedestrian Indian bowling attack has added few more years to their working life. Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussy, who owes a big thanks to Pakistanis (Team & bookmakers) for giving them second cricketing life in 2010. Pakistan’s defeat can be associated with greed and PCB’s financial troubles (with a laugh). India’s no 1 position (rolling eyes) is on stake, let’s see what excuse do they have for loosing in Sydney.

Pup has grown up, so we can rightly call him a ‘Dog’, maybe. Michael Clark’s 329 were amazing to watch. And what about his gallant decision to retire on this score? I personally wanted him to get pass 334, just because he deserved to beat Mark Taylor.
