We are still waiting for the “Drop Scene” of the 0-9 trashing of our beloved national cricket team in Aussies land as there is lot of happenings as expected proceeding that tour. But for me that “Drop Scene” is already occurred/picturised(?) as Mr. President Asif Ali Zardari has patted Butt’s butt and told him to carry on dear, but just do it a little better if you can. Don’t worry you and your family plus extended family aka PCB staff will have a vacation in Sri Lanka in 2011 with World Cup team for free.
Hello! What? Aussies might probably have a good laugh at it but what a man he is. This is wonderful I am just stunned the way he said all this. First reaction was like oh thats our dear Gayle not good with words and statements he is open but little too open.
Take# 1 22-Jan-2010 :
Punter: Hey MoYo, let see how well you can do this, its your turn first.
MoYo: oh, ahan, hmm ok We will, yeah let’s do it.
Here is now the preview of Pakistan team and squad at the eve of 5 ODI series against Australia which is already become significant due to:
Sydney to Hobart a journey with baby sitting and brotherhood soap opera, yes thats what it is actually like a soap opera from Sydney defeat to final squad selection for Hobart is all like soap opera and here is its characters, script, plot and story:
Pakistan put Aussies on way too back foot at first day of Sydney test and started what was going to be a long long nightmare for them.
They continued playing good for 3 solid days, people started to wonder what the hell is going on?
On 4th day, they said wohoooo we are back and did what they only can do best in world.
Kamran Akmal dropped 4 catches to start soap opera’s next episode, ok ok and a missed run out too.
As expected voices started to raise as usual from Pakistan and all around the world.
Yousuf got the initial blame and said some good things mixed in some blind shooters.
After not getting enough hot things from Yousuf media turned to poor Kami Bhai (Kamran Akmal).
PCB without waisting time send a new wicket keeper to Australia which they initially pulled out after New Zealand.
Yousuf and Kamran himself said Kamran will play as wicket keeper with all his butter gloves.
Some genious thought Kamran may have done some baby sitting that night otherwise how can he drop those and all other idiots clapped on that.
Umar had sore back one day and didn’t practiced so some other idiot oh Kami may be pushing him not play in protest, hows that for a headline, Aussies press said ah love it.
I seriously don’t know how they made Pointing on that but he was also enjoying the brotherhood, I think he reading too much newspaper and blogs in last week.
Will Kami play? Will Kami not play? this pendulum keep vibrating for a good week and everybody had a fair share out of it.
Finally heard the news that Kamran bhai will not play and younger bhai is better after some painkillers and ready to roll. Kamran get some moral support from people too for his relief.
Oh talking about support, Geof Lawson obviously had a good time with Pakistan team couple of years ago so he had some hot sexual conversations with those knucklehead journalists spreading all the shit. Surprised! Well foreign coaches have always like Pakistan team and developed some relations more than coaching like Bob Wolmer and Lawson.
Probably all settled, much-needed changes done but with not so good replacement. Malik for Misbah their names are even not so different. Khurram for Faisal well leave it. Aamer for Sami arguable and probably good one. Srafraz for Kami don’t ask again?
So here we are in Hobart 14th Jan 2010.
Oh man can Yousuf win a single toss at least? Punter won it again and decided to bat first with that ugly sheepish smile.
Ready to rock n roll. But here is some thing for you to think or guess:
Which of the Pakistan team will turn in Hobart:
- Desperate to do better.
- Inspirational to complete what they left in Sydney.
- Face saving.
- Take it easy its over.
- Worse than ever.
- Who the hell can even think about Pakistan team predictions.
Should I make a poll of above?
I think a whitewash 3 – 0 is most probable here with some chances of 2-0 for the Aussies.
Thanks to all those being optimistic about Pakistan, and to others please being optimistic within a close circle of reality doesn’t hurt guys!.
Are you effected by the overall negativity surrounding Pakistan?
Pakistan’s first inning looks like effected by that negativity but again we got rid of it in second inning somewhat, so I will stay optimistic and positive about Pakistan and Pakistan cricket as far as a drop of belief or blood stays in me.
For those who are afraid of being optimistic, you might see something special on last cricketing day of 2000s, a Pakistan victory (although highly unlikely) but then don’t give me this and that and early declaring shit, it is the willingness to fight which bring Pakistan this far.
For me, I already have seen a glimpse of what I want to see from this Pakistan side, so whatever the result is on 30th December 2009 I am fine with it as far as I am seeing the fight they put up in second inning so far.
Many people at some places thrashed me and many like me who were little optimistic about Pakistan’s tour to Australia. They argued with statistics, history and current state of the team that Pakistan will again produce same result as before 0-3 against Aussies in Australia. As the first test progressed from the word go or even from toss and team selection their point of view was getting stronger and stronger till first inning of both teams concluded.
In second inning we saw fear making his way out and natural instincts getting out of them with some determination to get back into this. They did get back into the skin of Aussies in their second inning and then Pakistan started their second inning batting in contrast to first, we saw positive intent, willing to put runs on board, willing to put bad balls away and occasionally risky silly shots. Still they keep tumbling when there was a hint of a partnership even the last pair of the day Yousaf and young Umar had some luck with them and came back un-beaten unlike first inning’s second day’s stumps.
After all this they put themselves in a position where they could sense an outside chance of pulling off a historical run chase and victory from a position where they were looking to lose it by an inning or so and this is what I am being optimistic of. This happened twice or thrice in last 4 test matches they came back from behind and nearly catch up. If Pakistan can keep this habit soon they will start and learn to dominate provided no spectacular disaster from no where and non-cricketing issues.
Well back to reality, Yousuf is looking good and Umar is in his usual self, Yousuf has a big role to play not only to stay there as long as possible but also to calm down his ever aggressive partner time to time. But Pakistan had an immense task ahead of them and all this could happen tomorrow.
- Pakistan survives first session without any loss of wicket with +100 runs and all set to chase 150+ runs in last two sessions with 7 wickets in hand. Can’t predict beyond this, its crazy.
- Australia gets couple of wickets in first session specially if these two and are on there heels to get others in last two.
- Pakistan collapse as unexpectedly as they do.
- Pardon me I am not playing at MCG, wait for the day dude.
Australia still has an edge and could rap this up tomorrow without any trouble but if Pakistan in determined and willing to pull up something astonishing they have a difficult chance.
