Bangladeshi will be supporting Srilankans in this T20 World cup final played in Bangladesh.
Reason is simple:
2009 venue England
2010 winner England
2010 venue West Indies
2012 winner West Indies
2012 venue Srilanka
2014 winner _____________
I think Bengalis will be loving this sequence as it could generate there number. The next T20 world cup will going to happen in India in 2016 so just want to say them Keep Dreaming may be you get it because t20 is the mother of unpredictability.
Pakistan team knock out in the group stage day before yesterday so as WI today who lost the semi final against Srilanka by D/L method.
But what is going on all the way. Australia also came with the best team and not qualify for the Semi finals. English players were expected to go earlier and were not in top four but they played more worst by losing against Netherlands.
Not a single word utter by the media for so bad performance by Aussie and English players. And in Pakistan it is an opposite story. Yes Pakistanis are much passionate for Cricket than the other two but the working methodology for the betterment of cricket is not in the right direction as they have. Muhammad Hafeez dropped as a captain. I was very happy to see him doing captaincy for the second time. in T20 WC, because of a consistent decision and hoping to see him as a captain after 2015 when Misbah will retire.
I know many of you have their own likes and dis likes but Cricket is not all about this. If Cricket work in this way then after 2010 WC Kevin Pietersen become the captain of English Team, Mike Hussey of Australia’s, Gayle of West Indies and Shakib ul Hasan of Bangladesh. Then how Pakistan team is going like this once again a reverse gear of looking Shahid Afridi as the captain of Pakistan team. I know we play different cricket than allover the world but that doesn’t mean we should not follow the basics.
Players and Management should not accept his decision of step down from captaincy and not support him. I know his batting is not in form and was feeling the pressure. No body in Pakistan team is as spotless. Even Indian team has Virat Kholi who is the best batsman now on earth but see what is his role. Pakistan team should go for Hafeez, If this happen with Hafeez next will be Afridi then some one else and a cycle will go like this. Pakistan team must avoid this sort of attitude and must stick to the decision they stick else Cricket of Pakistan will suffer badly.
The IPL 2014 is about to start in few months( not know if it will be in India or in South Africa). The players sold out last month. Here is the list of The five most expensive player in IPL 2014 auction.
His average is about 50 in the first class cricket but it was unnoticeable by chief selectors. The time he grew a big moustache he was caught by selectors and was given the chance. Lolzz… the last part is of course wrong yeah he grew his moustache and it is a good trend in Cricket now.
THE MOUSTACHE EFFECT:
But why a player who scores a 100 in his début didn’t played consistently. If he had played for Pakistan since 2009 consistently I am sure he had score at least 12 or more hundreds up till now as the way Pakistani top order has been crumbled in the recent past against many sides. He was the part of T-20 world cup 2009 and he impressed with his splendid fielding but since it was the time of Muhammad Aamir, Boom Boom Shahid Afridi that’s why he was not caught by the media. But now when he got the chance to play in the final against the team whom he scored a hundred in test he grabbed it and played a responsible inning.
He is the fifth Pakistani batsman to scored a ton in playing at number five. Others were Imran Khan, Basit Ali, Ijaz Ahmed & Yousuf made twice.
He has an unorthodox way to bat a bit like Chanderpaul. He has the ability of taking frequent single and doubles which you normally don’t find in Pakistan team batters. His temperament of batting is better than Umer Akmal; even when he was batting a commentator said if Umer Akmal was there instead of Fawad Alam he would have played a stupid shot and was out.
I hope he play more and more for Pakistan and play great winning knocks which he can do. Because he has proved that he is not only the best batsman in domestic but also of PAK XI after scoring in a pressure.
Asia Cup was ended last night by an impressive win of Srilankans against Pakistan. The tournament was very important for all the teams in different perspective. But the team who has got the thinnest chance of winning-Afghanistan, yeah they don’t win it also has shown a great team effort and a great performance in the tournament. They beat home team Bangladesh which was surely there one of the target to do. Apart of that they played well against Pakistan but were not so great against Indians and Srilankans.
There matches in Bangladesh pitches can help them of showing great effort of and better performances in upcoming T-20 world cup. Afghanistan team will be dangerous in upcoming T-20 world cup. They have a fine bowling attack and they could restrict teams like Bangladesh, Zimbawe, Hong Kong Nepal in upcoming T-20 world cup. But their problem is there batting they are unable to chase or put a good total on board and they are heavily depend on their wicket keeper batsman Shehzad. But what’s the good thing about T-20 format is it suits their batsman and they played a nail-biting t-20 match against Pakistan couple of months ago.
Shaproon Zadran is one of the bowler who has impressed a lot. Let us see how Afghanis show them self in T-20 world cup.
I was just surprised and thinking for the past few months that why #LALA #BOOMBOOM #Shahid Afridi is not in Q-mobile ads. Q-mobile is one of the leading mobile phones in Pakistan. They took Fawaad Khan who is one of the most popular guy from Pakistan media industry, Humayun Saeed and then they fly to Bolly wood and signed Kareena Kapoor known as Bebo. There is also news that Q-mobile is negotiating Angelina Jolie in their next ad which will be the biggest victory for Q-mobile and a great chance to enter in International market.
Also best of luck to Lala’s Smart phone Haier which looks to me appealing and similar to my favourite brand- Samsung. Best of Luck to Javed Afridi. My best wishes are with him!!!
