Whats Wrong With Quetta

Written by F Mirza on July 11th, 2007   (335 views)

Pakistani players only like to play in comfort and luxury, huh? After spending some cool time in a recent camp in the hill station Abbotabad, and a leisure trip to Scotland, they are resisting the decision of Pakistan cricket Board to establish a camp in the Quetta, which is the provincial capital of Balochistan.

Quetta is one of the most beautiful cities of Pakistan and its citizens are famous for their hospitality and warm receptions. In the recent parts, the law and order situation of Quetta hasnt remained that much fantastic, but then where in the country it could be called satisfactory? If Quetta hasnt got the luxurious hotels, and other “recreational” activities, which the players of our team will miss, then it shouldnt be the reason, that the young players and citizens of Quetta be deprived of this camp.

Cricket is fast becoming the game of Power. Ricky Ponting, the captain of Australia has himself acknowledged that due to new format of the game, the future cricket is all about power and aggression. It would be hard for the players who are not tall and muscular and strong. Balochistan is the treasure of power and aggression. Balochs are naturally tall, strong and brave. The talent in the Balochistan is still hidden and un-checked.

For the bright future of cricket in Pakistan, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) needs to encourage cricket in Balochistan as much as possible. Some of the senior players are saying to PCB that its not wise to establish a camp in Quetta in these times, when there is a flood and such and such, and team has completed the camp in Abbotabad and tour of Scotland.

How foolish and timid these statements are from the players. What exactly they did in the cool weather of Abbotabad without a coach? What effort they exerted in Scotland? Nill. And in these troubled times of flood and rain in Balochistan, it would be very healing and refreshing for the people of Quetta to have thier national stars among them. It would bring a sense of attachment and happiness in the otherwise tasteless Quetta environment.
