It is hard to find words to explain Ross Taylor’s over kill of Pakistan bowling attack last night. Ross Taylor is a good hard hitting batsman, the best from New Zealand. I am not being harsh on Taylor but to be frank he has a lot to thank Pakistan bowling attach for giving him great Birthday gifts ++.

In last five overs Pakistan bowling attack was acting on a pre-written script. Over all it was a satisfactory performance but There was some bad acting by Shoaib Akhtar. Anyone who has slight interest in cricket would know the strength of Ross Taylor is mid-wicket and he plays same short too often. I don’t even like to say anything about Abdul Razzaq, who would play a little cameo once after thirty or forty games, mostly when he suspect he is about to be kicked out of the team. In his current situation he is not even worth playing for a club cricket let alone an international team.

How do I drop this sitter!!

If I were a betting person I would be a rich man after yesterdays game, the script of the game was very evident from early signals by Shoaib Akhtar and then the stamp of approval was given by our all time great wicket keeper, Kamran Akmal. My observations are purely based on Kamran’s body language. I am not implying that Kamran Deliberately dropped those two chances of Ross Taylor. I have never had any doubts of his wicket keeping abilities, my pet dog does a better job behind the stumps than him.

Clouds of match fixing scandals have surrounded Pakistan Cricket Team for several years. During years many main players have been in and out of the team for different reasons and duration. There is one Kamran, who has done blunders and mega blunders but his position was not really threatened. He has been out of the team for little while just as a precautionary measure to make fun of us forgetful people. It is not only  him that is impossible to get rid off, his younger brother Umar Akmal. During the Pakistan’s Australian tour Umar Akmal, who had only a debutant, refused to play a test match if his brother will not be included in the team. Umar Akmal,  supposedly, who was deemed a next Sachin Tendulkar by some air heads just after his first century in his first innings.

Pakistan Cricket Board has been treating this family as ‘rarest breed’. Are they really that good? Or, it is a simple case, as most other simple things happen in my country on one simple principle, “might is right”. Someone real power mafia has the support for this family. Zulqarnain Haider incident is another indicator of the might of this mafia behind this family.

After getting rid of Zulqarnain Haider, youngest Akmal got his brother’s position while he was being protect from match fixing saga. Now we have forgotten all what happened in past and the eldest Akmal is back. I have to agree that he is doing his job very well and making some people very rich.

I have written about match fixing in Pakistan cricket before and I still think that PCB is not serious about solving this issue at all.


Mount Afridi

January 29, 2011

Explosive Afridi has erupted after several quiet months. Shahid Afridi is like a volcano which goes to quiet mode for weeks and sometimes years and then there is a magnificient eruption for crowd to cheer which follows a long quiet duration. Pakistan recent win against weak New Zealand team is a good comeback and it is good step for worldcup preparation. Is it? I am not really sure.

What about us?

Pakistan beat New Zealand with a margin of an innings, keeping the tradition alive for Pakistan as world’s most unexpected cricket team. This comprehensive defeat was not good enough for ESPN’s to be published on their main page for few hours.
