Could Afghan Tour Signal the Return of International Cricket to Pak?

“Tuesday started as just another day in Lahore: a morning report to the fitness trainer to check our hydration levels, a quick breakfast and cup of coffee and an 8.30am departure to the ground. We were all looking forward to the third day’s play and trying to win the series………..From the front I heard the screams to “get down, get down” and we all hit the deck. Within seconds we

Mind-boggling “Cricket World Records” by Pakistan

Pakistan Cricket have suffered some major “lows” in last 6 years due to their certain acts but they are like a vagabond who irritates the street with his loud and notorious acts yet, once he is not around, a part of you always miss him. They truly have been a soul of this game. In every aspect of this game there are Pakistanis who keep the blood running in heart of Cricket.

Shaping the Future of Snooker in Pakistan

Pool halls scattered around the big cities in Pakistan are considered by many a nuisance where the youth waste their precious time.  This assertion is true to some extent, but there is another side to these joints.  The pool/snooker parlors are also acting as nurseries for budding players of a sport that is on the rise in Pakistan and has brought home two amateur world championships and several other top

I am Legend – Jahangir Khan

In a country where news channels have a section for sports and then one on cricket and where people sometimes unwittingly say that cricket is the national game, it’s easy to understand how squash in the country went from producing a great like Jahangir Khan to being an obsolete sport. I swear! I don’t understand why squash hasn’t been given its due attention like cricket, and to some extent hockey.

Should Afridi Give Test Cricket Another Chance?

“I don’t have any plans to make a return to test cricket…… I think I’m not the best choice for this format,” said Shahid Afridi recently. Could he be more explicit?  However, this hasn’t stopped the fans from cajoling their favorite cricket hero to give test cricket another shot.  During the past five years, since July 2006, when he first announced retirement from test cricket, the question of his return

Pakistan’s Best Chance to Win a Series in the Caribbean

Yup! You read that correctly. This is Pakistan’s golden chance to win a Test series in the Caribbean. They’ve never won there before! Seriously, I was shocked when I heard it too, but our team manager only recently blurted out this little known fact. “Now the expectations are even higher for this tour, because we have never won a series out here before” he said. I was like “WHAT?!!” 1957/58,

The Batting Side of Pakistan Cricket

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and children of all ages…Welcome to the Pakistan cricket pessimists zone! Today, my rant will focus on our brilliant batting side. More like the team’s backside, if you know what I mean. By now you may have gathered that I’m a bit upset about our batting. Seriously, I was sooooo looking forward to having Javed Miandad back as a batting coach for our team.

Zero Wickets, No Runs – Yet International Awards and a Hat Trick in the Making!

They are calling him Mr. 100%! No no…. come on people, please grow up. Not every Pakistan-related article with a percentage sign has to be about a certain well-known politician who will remain nameless! I’m talking about our star of the cricket world cup. Wrong again! Not Kamran Akmal. In fact I’m talking about….*drum roll*….. Aleem Dar! The serene, calm and calculating umpire is a two time ICC ‘Umpire of

Much Ado about Cricket – How We All Love to Add Masala to a Pak vs. India Match

The world cup is over and India has lifted the trophy. It’s the first time in history that a host nation has won the world cup. Anyways we wanted to do an article on how we add “Masala” to India Pakistan matches. It is the second last ball of the last over. This match between India and Pakistan at Mohali has been nerve wrecking throughout. Shahid Afridi is facing in

India Beats Pakistan in Cricket World Cup Semifinals

India’s 260 for nine beat Pakistan’s 231 by 29 runs in the semifinal in Mohali. India’s batting was lackluster, but enough to defeat Pak. On-field performance by India was much more impressive. The field demonstration lived-up to the pre-match hype that called this the “Match of the Decade.” Not all fans agree. Spectator TRAM commented, “Fielding needs to be good (for both teams) to make a high quality cricket. Today,
