Doomed Cricket

After the shameful defeat of Pakistan by the hands of Sri Lanka, many heads are about to roll. As the high powered Sports Ministry committee meets in Lahore on Sunday (today) to finalise the recommendations on the proposed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) constitution, a reduced Executive Council consisting of provincial and departmental representatives is likely to replace the existing system.

Nobody is believing Shoiab Malik’s lame excuses after the defeat. Shoaib said chasing over 300 runs is always a tough and challenging task and the Pakistan team could not chase the target after losing successive wickets in the start besides failing to restrict the opponents at a low total. “But it is cricket and things some times do not happen the way you plan and today was not our day as we could not perform upto a certain level in most departments of the game,” he mentioned.

The embarrassing 234-run loss against Sri Lanka — Pakistan’s heaviest defeat in One-day Internationals — in the series finale in Lahore on Saturday makes it evident that Pakistan Cricket is doomed and immediate measures are needed to rectify the situation pretty much fast.

Almost two years after kicking off a so-called rebuilding campaign following a humiliating first-round exit from the 2007 World Cup, Pakistan seem to have covered little ground.
