PCB Disciplines Seven Cricket Players

My write-up on Cricket Blogger of Pakistan regarding the recent decision by PCB on Younis Khan, Mohd Yousuf, Shahid Afridi, Rana Navid, Kamran Akmal and Umar Akmal – Personally I applaud this decision and fully support the PCB for making a stand against indiscipline. What only concerns me is that it is the very same cricket board that tip-toed around Mohd Asif’s Dubai drug arrest, he should have been let to rot in prison in the UAE as he had utterly disgraced the nation – yet he was released from Dubai and allowed to play in the team, then how can we forget the favoritism for Shoaib Akhtar. Both also need to be ushered out of cricket along with these seven disciplined players. Indiscipline is a very worrisome issue for any sporting team and it must be dealt firmly from the very start to prevent future reoccurrances, we all are aware that these issue of indiscipline has more or left been left unchecked which has turned the Pakistan team into a roving team of lunatics. It finally time to hunt for new talent and time to make way for new young and motivated team of cricketers who might concentrate on cricket and cricket alone. Till then sadly we shall be found to rot at the bottom of the ICC rankings table

Heres to hoping Pakistan does win the World Cup

Pakistan Women’s Cricket Team beats Sri Lanka by 57-runs in World Cup

pakistan womens-cricket-teamPakistan Women Cricket team has just trumped a 57-run win over Sri Lanka at the Women’s World Cup in Sydney.

Pakistan totalled 161-7 from their 50 overs and then bowled out Sri Lanka for just 104, with medium-pacer Qanita Jalil taking 3-33 from eight overs.

Sri Lanka never recovered from losing their first three wickets with only 28 on the board and although captain Shashikala Siriwardene made 58 from 11 balls, she lacked the support necessary to steer them towards their target. She was eventually run out by Javeria Khan and the game ended when Sana Mir, who had contributed an unbeaten 22 earlier in the game, had Sripali Weerakkody caught to finish with figures of 2-18.

Haider Ali one of Pakistan four athletes who were participating in the Beijing Paralympic Games this year. Haider Ali has been featured earlier where he was a gold medalist in Kuala Lumpur Asian Paralympic Games and this time around he bagged a bronze medal in the Long Jump when he tied the World Record with Tunisian Farhat Chida at 6.44 meters, the only reason he ended with a bronze was the fact that the net aggregate [PDF Result] placed him in second place as one of his preliminary jumps was declared void

Haider participated in three other events of which he missed out on medal rankings for the Discuss Throw when he came forth [PDF Result]

This achievement actually took place a week back on the 9th but it seems the people have quickly forgotten this achievement due to the hovering gloomy political clouds upon us. Let us all take a step back and lend this young man a standing ovation for a great achievement, may his achievement inspire other sportsmen and women to make our country proud

[A special request to Pakistani bloggers is to honor this unsung hero]
