Pakistan World Cup Squad

Written by Fahd Mirza on February 14th, 2007   (1,409 views)

When couple of years back, Bob Woolmer came in to navigate Pakistan Cricket’s ship, he declared that his eyes were on World CUP 2007, But the populace saw that his eyes were constantly remained stuck to his laptop.

Prior to announcing the world cup squad, there was not even a shade of planning, organization, discipline, merit or professionalism. It seemed that the team was pre-decided and whatever hue and cry was raised was just an eyewash. Pakistan is perhaps the only team in world cricket, who hasn’t selected his player on merit. The team is merely consisted of unctuous Yes-Inzi bhai garbage, except couple of exceptions.

Inzamam was the one of best batsman, this country has ever produced. But at the same time, he is the worst captain, this country has ever endured. There are many characteristics of him which made him an utterly inappropriate captain. These include his illiteracy, passiveness, professionalism, aloofness, intriguing behavior and narrow-mindedness. This attitude of his has permanently tarnished his career. Its really time for him to announce his retirement after world cup to save his dignity(whatever left of it) and the Pakistan Cricket.

But honestly speaking, I don’t have much to complain because the choices were limited. There is virtually no influx of new talent in the team. We don’t see any new talented face of a bowler, batsman or all-rounder. What we see the merry-go-round of same failures each time. When you have so-called bowlers like “Two Rs” (Rao and Rana), wicket-keeper like Kamran Akmal, Opener like Hafeez, No. 3 like Younis khan and captain like Inzamam, then is there any ray of hope at the end of tunnell?
