WHY is Mr. Asif Zardari poking his nose in cricket? Just because he is the sleeping patron in chief of the cricket board in Pakistn does not give him the right to do so. In politics, he used ALL his resources to come into power and sneaked in through the backdoor. The PPP got sympathy votes because of BB’s demise and Zardari bulldozed himself into power. Ever since he came into power he is bulldozing the country, which is almost flattened by corruption, lawlessness and disasters.
Recently he went on a YATRA to INDIA and came back looking holier than the COW. He seems to be looking very inspired by Manmohan Singh and wants to follow his footprints. Also, talking too much about developing bilateral ties between the two countries.
I hope its not going to be a “Kawwa Challa Hans Ki Chaal…” or, follow the sheep or the PiedPipper story? You created IPL, I will create PPL and you roar, I fart. Why the HELLO Pakistan needs to follow the footsteps of The BCCI? They can do weird things, adapt strange policies, demand extreme measures but, the PCB cannot do the same. They are in no position to demand, they have everything to lose and nothing to gain i.e., if they further antagonize the ICC, they will be isolated. Is this what Mr. Zardari wants do do before he takes another permanent one way flight to Dubai?
Zardari himself is always in “Chay-Oss” (this is exactly how he reads Chaos – so now his speeches are written in phonetics.) and he sought advise on cricket from 5 ex-Chairmen of the PCB and one of them is the “Buffoon” Ijaz Butt. (By the way its not me but Malcolm Speed the former Chairman of the ICC called him “A Buffoon”). And, why is DNA not in this committee? That is because he is a sensible person and he is the one who gave the PCB a written constitution for the first time in 60 years?
I support this rule i.e., the ICC has set March 2013 deadline for all its affiliated members/boards to make their system more democratic and to ensure that no kind of interference is done in their affairs by their respective governments. The maximum punishment for not following the instructions could amount to disaffiliation of the PCB from the ICC.
Pakistan is already isolated from the rest of the world. Not even Bangladesh wants to come to Pakistan to play cricket in Pakistan. What a shame this happened during Zardari and Ijaz Butt’s time and neither of the two has extended their apologies to the Sri Lankan government, their cricket board, nor the players or, the people of Sri Lanka for that horrendous terrorist attack in Lahore.
Since then Pakistan is still playing International cricket outside their country and are at the mercy of the other board’s schedule and their moods. Right now they are at the mercy of SL and Australian cricket board and waiting for a reply from them i.e., to the SOS that Zaka has sent it to them saying, please, please, please accommodate us in your schedule and let us play a couple of matches with you in Sri Lanka.
Pakistan, if they remain adamant in their stupid approach will soon become an ORPHAN in the cricketing world. Paani may reh ker magar much say bair? Kimpossible. Neither Zardari nor Zaka or any of their cronies are able to see what they are doing? Zardari and Zaka will soon be gone it will be left for others may be Imran Khan to flung the Dung left by these Buffaloes and Cows.
Well, the PCB is a cash cow and that is why they are all hovering around like vultures and they have not wasted any opportunity in damaging the game of cricket in Pakistan. To make it to the British theater, you need to be White, middle-class, Oxbridge educated. And this is not just a single person’s opinion but, has been highlighted in the last 12 months by people all over in the UK.
Likewise in Pakistan if you want to make it to the national team and if you ant to be the captain of the Pakistan cricket team you have to be an elitist from the province of Punjab. You don’t need anyone to vouch for this bold statement, its known to everyone and everyone who is not from the Punjab is saying this. Well this blunt statement may hurt some of the people who are involved in it and they may say its not true but, history is there to prove it. Shall we start digging out the names or, shall we leave it here for the grave diggers to their job? Just for info: I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done! :-)
The best thing for Zardari is to become a janitor at the mazaar of his ex-wife.
