Plus their country keeps on antagonizing India with its terrorists activities. India undoubtedly is the sole cricket power-house as far as revenue and viewership is concerned. Nothing damaged Pakistan cricket more than the lack of bilateral cricket with India and nothing was damaged more by the 2008 Mumbai attack than Pakistani cricket.


Regards
Try saying that to the families of those who died in the attacks

Especially bowling superstars. The brilliant Asif and very promising Aamer would have been such an asset!!


Regards
Asif would have been a washed up hasbeen by now. Aamer probably would have been one of the best int he world.

Neither would have been an asset since they were cheating scumbags. Hopefully Aamer comes back reformed and doesn't get caught up in the wrong crowd.

SOBEIT, well done for not using a swear word or two!

I'm afraid this is what happens when you use computers to manage the team! Probably using them right now analyzing where we went wrong today. It drives me bonkers!

Best we keep our heads down for the Ashes, could be a massacre.....
And that is in my opinion the problem with global sport. Too clinical. Ok it wins games but much of the flair is gone. Playing the odds is the dominant strategy.

Not forgetting political issues with team selection.

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

Ohh don't get me started.....

Unfortunately we have a long and rich history when it comes to team selection. No doubt about it we are lurching back into our old habits of picking the old favourites again. During our little stint as a decent side players were being picked on merit, not so now again! I'm a little biased but cannot believe Chris Jordan is not playing for example, a little raw but totally committed and loads of talent!

However a day at Lord's on the sauce or a Friday night at Hove watching a 20/20 with a post match curry comes pretty close to heaven in my world.....

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

gloomy days for England Cricket team when Bangladesh mighty up 275 batting first and England struggling on 150/5 in 33 overs. I'd want to believe Bangladesh is playing some really good cricket.

Re: Cricket World Cup 2015

Rubel HOSSAIN is the name that will haunt English players for the next 4 years. Now that was a short vacation for the England team.
