back to the start. A cricket fan gave it a proper reflection of Pakistan’s cricket situation. As one of the most powerful members of the Brotherhood of Cricket, Pakistan’s efforts to host large international teams took a hit after the bombing of the Sri Lankan team as a terrorist target in 2009.
For the newly appointed Pakistan Cricket Committee Chairman Ramiz Raja, this is a baptism of fire. When the New Zealand team suddenly decided to withdraw for safety reasons, he looked forward to receiving the New Zealand team. The New Zealand government took action on the advice of the security forces. It weakens Pakistan’s chances of hosting top teams for a long time.
“I am very sorry for the fans and our players. It is very frustrating to withdraw from the tour by taking a unilateral approach to security threats. Especially when it is not shared. In which world does New Zealand live? New Zealand will hear from the ICC Our voice,” an angry Raja wrote on Twitter. Since New Zealand withdrew from the tour a few hours before the start of the first game, it has suffered even more damage. Pakistan’s dilemma is not over yet, because England has also decided to withdraw from the short-distance tour.
“Disappointed in England, gave up their promises, and failed their cricket brotherhood members when they were most needed. It was a wake-up call for Pakistan to become the best team in the world, and other teams can do nothing. Line up for no reason,” Raja’s response spoke of his mentality.
To illustrate: In the eyes of Salman Bart in the previous opener, Pakistan should take a hard line. “It has been a difficult time for more than ten years, and this has added a little bit. But Pakistan should take a firm stand and not play their home series on a neutral ground. Pakistan does not have the same security issues as before. Ours The security agency has done a good job.” -AFP
The former Pakistan opener Salman Batt was measured in his reaction. “Obviously, this will affect the game. A high-quality team can bring top competition, thereby improving the skill level of the players. PCB financial returns are also affected. Cricket tourists also bring business. In short, a lot It’s all about the team touring any country,” he told athletic star.
In Bart’s view, Pakistan should take a hard line. “It has been a difficult time for more than ten years, and this has added a little bit. But Pakistan should take a firm stand and not play their home series on a neutral ground. Pakistan does not have the same security issues as before. Ours The security agency has done a good job.”
For veteran sports reporter Abdul Majid Bhatti (Abdul Majid Bhatti), the sport is not developing well. “Since New Zealand withdrew from the tour a few hours before the first game, this has been a shock for Pakistan cricket. PCB’s position has been appreciated and supported by countries all over the world. New Zealand’s actions are illogical. For The security they provide is unprecedented.”
Bhatti’s views were endorsed by senior cricket writer Shahid Hashmi. “I am worried that New Zealand will have taken the trip to Pakistan from the larger team for at least two to three years. Even if things do not happen in New Zealand, Australia will not tour, because they always treat the situation in Afghanistan as a Question. This is a difficult time for Pakistani cricket because we feel that we are being used like tissues and thrown into the trash. But the world should know that Pakistan is the most colorful team. When they play, There are no dull moments, which is why you cannot keep Pakistan away from the mainstream. With enthusiasm and enthusiasm, Pakistan will overcome this stage.”
Batty observes, “The International Criminal Court will have to intervene, otherwise there may be disagreements between the world’s top three cricket players (India, Australia, and England) and the rest of the world. In fact, it’s great to see India’s various platforms fighting against each other. Pakistan’s support. But the International Chamber of Commerce must review this issue. If the team does not go to Pakistan, how will it help the game develop? I think Pakistan has good reasons. Hard times, but PCB will find a way out.”
Even though Hashmi feels it is necessary to maintain the interest of Pakistani junior cricketers, Bart said, “Cricket is an innate passion for young people. If we can manage them well and create opportunities and Occupation, then Pakistan’s interest in cricket will always be there.”
Pakistan observers believe that this attitude of New Zealand and England will greatly help create a spirit in the Pakistan team. In 1992, Pakistan had almost no support, only Sunil Gavaskar (Sunil Gavaskar) had confidence in Imran Khan’s team. Imran’s team shocked the world. This is a turning point for Pakistan cricket, and it has also grown into a strong testing force.
Unfortunately: After the New Zealand cricket team withdrew from the Pakistan Cricket Tour for safety reasons, a member of the police elite stood guard at the Rawalpindi Cricket Ground. “Since New Zealand withdrew from the tour a few hours before the first game, this has been a shock for Pakistan cricket. PCB’s position has been appreciated and supported by countries all over the world. New Zealand’s actions are illogical. For The scale of security they provide is unprecedented,” said Majid Bhatti, a veteran sports journalist. -Reuters
Although the players participated in the National T20 Cup, the lack of international exposure may be a problem for the Pakistan team. The two series against New Zealand and England will allow the team management to understand the individual’s personal style.
The last time Pakistan participated in an international match was in August in the two test series against the West Indies. The team’s last time to participate in the T20 international match was also against the Caribbean on August 3.
Players are under pressure to adapt quickly to the challenges of the court. Pakistan will play two warm-up matches with the West Indies and South Africa before facing India in the championship opener.
The team is keen to surprise the cricket world. As Batty said, “There is nothing to lose. I hope they can go all out and play a role to improve their reputation.”
Raja firmly believes that this may once again become a turning point for Pakistan’s cricket. He hopes the team will remember this humiliation and create a situation where the team hopes to go to Pakistan. This makes Pakistan a team in the upcoming ICC World T20 Cup in the United Arab Emirates.
