Summary

  • It appears that there is a new controversy brewing in Pakistan cricket with Umar Akmal’s allegations of abusive language used by Pakistan Head Coach Mickey Arthur.
  • If you compare Pakistan to other countries in the world, talented players are given attention and work done with them not only on cricketing aspects but also on matters related to off the field as well.
  • When scheduling such a tournament, the PCB should have taken into account that there is a certain time in the year when Pakistani players go away to take part in these overseas tournaments as those dates are driven by the duration of the local cricket seasons.
  • In addition, if PCB makes such abrupt decisions then the foreign leagues from next year will start to shy away from picking Pakistan players and will not prefer them over other players as that disrupts their plans and affects ability to win tournaments.
  • By providing such high levels of security as we saw in the PSL, we are defeating the purpose of the World XI’s visit which should be to send out a positive message and show that Pakistan is as safe as any other country, and normal life continues without fear.
