Yesterday, my cousin and his friends including Amin ur Rehman and Agha Sabir (both r first class cricketers) wer here at our house....we wer talking about cricket and I got to know some facts about our PAKISTAN TEAM,the previous selectors and the PCB!!!! And I can't tell u how shocked n disappointed I am!!
I got to know so many things n this just makes me hate Pak cricket!!
I wish I cud tell u everything but I cant!
Hey nimra!!! Ur scaring me now ..tell me what did they tell u that made u so upset.. Please tell us.. we won't tell anyone..... i wanna know whats going on as well ..please nimra tell na yaar
I can't tell u everything..coz bhaiyya (my cousin) and his friends will kill me for that!!!
They all know that I write (about cricket) here and on another site that is the biggest n the no. 1 site about Pakistan Cricket....They asked me strictly not to disclose these things!
Still...I'll tell some of the things...But I'm sorry I can't tell u the specific names of the players!!
- There's a senior player(A) in our team..and an extremely talented junior player(B) who hasn't had enough chances to prove himself on the international arena.that junior player is quite popular here in Pak..ppl like him alot. Ppl say that that junior player(B) owes his popularity to player A as player (A) has quite often promoted the junior one (B). And wat I got to know was that Player A (senior one) takes a certain percentage of money from the monthly income that player BBB (junior one) gets from the PCB. This means that the senior Player (A) charges a certain amount of money to promote player (B)!!!
-Second thing is that most of the players(not all) who wer in our team before Malik got the captaincy wer there becoz of a source in PCB. To make it simple: "Most of the players in our team wer in the team becoz they wer benefitting someone or the other in the PCB!"
-Thirdly, there used to b this kind of conversations in the dressing room: 'pachis ka tees hogaya hai...' other used to reply things liek: 'idhar bhi tees ka paintess hogaya hai' (I can't write it in easy words...u hav to guess wat this refers to)
-Fourth is quite disgusting!! During the period of the previous selection committee, only those players wer selected to play who brought a 'certain thing' for the selectors wenever the team toured another country!
I can't name that 'thing'..This one major reason y we didnt see any new faces in the Pak team during their tym! The new players who didn't really get any chances during that time wer mostly from Karachi, there wer some more too...from Punjab side and other places (Misbah) but mostly, wer from Karachi.They refused to bring that 'thing' for the selectors and the result: They didn't get selected eventhough Inzy used to command the selection matters.Inzy didn't want to try new players while the selectors didn't select new players coz they refused to bring them that 'thing'.
I tried to tell u these things in a way that (i hope) is understandable..I can't write in clear wordings...I'm strictly asked not to.
I'll giv u a one liner summary: 'The best ppl and the purest from all these bad things in cricket are the new selection committee, Younus Khan, Mohamed Yousuf and Shoaib Akhter( some ppl wud b quite surprised at his name here.But this is true! his own lifestyle is another story, but he's not doing anything disgusting in cricket behind the scenes..probably, this is a reason that the PCB(corrupt) often gets at Shoaib on small things and highlights them too much.It is becoz he doesn't get involved wid them in their corruption and he often threatens to disclose all these things in the media..!This is y PCB has done its best to create a bad image of Shoaib in the media so that even if he reveals something, ppl wont believe it!)
but the bright part is that things hav started changing since these new selectors hav come.I hope all the bad things will b eradicated...but I doubt this wud happen coz the whole PCB from the top is involved in this!
The selectors can do only wat is in their hands...they can't change PCB from top to bottom.
