Shoaib Akhtar : Good Riddance

Written by Fahd Mirza on January 21st, 2008   (71 views)

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) does take good, lasting, and difficult decisions once in a while, which perhaps show their pale will to do something for the benefit of the game in the country.

PCB has dropped Shoaib Akhtar for the upcoming Zimbabwe One Day International Series. They have dropped from the five matches series because of many factors, but on the surface PCB spokesman has said that Shoaib has been dropped because he has been largely remained unfit, and needs to proof his fitness in the domestic games before he could play at the international level.

Other and more strong factors which have led to the ouster of Shoaib Akhtar from the team are his maverick attitude towards the board officials, and his arrogance towards the co-players, and his unhidden desire to become captain, and his recent alleged signing of bollywood movie.

Shoaib Akhtar has been a very thorny problem over the years for Pakistan, and he has achieved very little for the country. He promises a lot, but delivers very little. He either remains entangled in injuries or in scandals. From South Africa to India to Pakistan to England, Cricket tours are littered with his scandalized marks.

If PCB only finds some new talent in the fields of bowling, batting, wicket keeping and spin bowling, it would free itself from many worries.
