Cricket woes

After dismal performance in T20 World Cup, in spite of finding the reasons of fiasco, all the efforts are being utilized to find out a scapegoat for putting all the blame.

They way coach and captain of Pakistan Cricket Team were unable to mange the team, similarly Chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board is unable to manage affairs of Pakistan cricket. PCB is once again in the limelight for all the wrong reasons.

Yesterday while talking to media, coach of Pakistan cricket team said that he handed over his confidential team report to chairman PCB Shahryar Khan with the request to keep it secret. But report was made public by someone which annoyed Waqar. Latter he was found complaining that he was being insulted by management of PCB. Latter Chairman PCB while talking to media said that it was unfortunate that report of Waqar Younis became public and he would try finding the culprit. Interestingly he has formed another fact finding committee to probe that how report of Waqar Younis was leaked to media.

There is no doubt that performance of team was pathetic in Asia cup and World cup but this is not the way to handle players and coaches.  If coach believed that his report was needed to be kept confidential for betterment, it should have been that way. We were thinking PCB would seriously look into the ways to bring cricket back on right track but it is busy in ridiculous controversies. There is no dearth of talent in Pakistan. PCB just needs to channelise the potential positively by strengthening domestic cricket. It can do that by keeping itself away from unnecessary controversies.
