What a shit show. Cancellations are based on proof, not mere concerns. What ECB And NZ-CB don't realise these actions based upon rumours and misguidance will only anger people, therefore, in return degrade the said countries image throughout the nation.

This act seems mischievous and quite irresponsible, Childish.
Problem is there is no recourse and no avenue to air our grievances which will be heard. Basically, there ain't anything you can do about it.

ICC is basically being controlled by BCCI which contributes 80% to it's revenue if not more, over 90% of cricketing audience in the world is in India.

India's economy is 7/8 times bigger than Pakistan and it's hellbent on destroying Pakistan and cricket is one way to deny Pakistan revenue and exposure in the world.

For Pakistan to continue to play cricket under ICC is to continue to battle an enemy while being outnumbered, outgunned and outwitted, the odds of winning are akin to Grenada's while facing the might of US military in 80's.

There is unofficial apartheid in place against Pakistan and all cricketing nations, especially the big three have colluded to enforce this apartheid, replace Pakistani with Blacks and imagine the cricket world would have reacted if BCCI had chosen to exclude Blacks from playing IPL and that too under the auspices of ICC since ICC provides the annual window for BCCI to hold IPL?

To continue down this ignominious path of cricket would be to torture ourselves with repeated humiliations. No amount of indignity and feeling of utterly wronged is going to change the behavior of powers that be and we have no options.

Please end the misery and find something more dignified to pursue.

This is a wake-up call to those corrupt baffoons at the helm of the Pakistan sports administrative division.

Maybe they can slap themselves in shame for not doing decent to this nation's athletes and its image. men and women. If they have an iota of self-respect things can be turned around for the better. invest into our sportsmen and women rather than into one's pockets.

Show the world what we are made of. We do not take mockery of our beloved nation lightly.

IF you take "Panga" with GORAS and embarrass them they will surely gang-up on you brown skin people and show you who runs the affairs in this world from Politics to Sports ... the question is HOW Pakistan will respond... that is in a manner suited to the most pivotal power in the South East Asia...

BTW ... someone just reminded me how Ramiz Raja might be feeling these days ... like "Manhoos Baho" who as soon as step into the susraal create havoc ... I feel for Mr. Ramiz Raja...

You mentioned "India." There is a way to outcompete India economically if we use our brains. Focus on the Textiles and agriculture industries.
Textile industry is a low profit margin industry. It is very hard to compete with Bangladesh in this niche. Pakistan (or any English speaking developing for that matter) should look to bolster software services. The industry requires low infrastructure requirements and is not typically susceptible to bureaucratic hurdles. :tup:

It's not about giving up on one's passions just because certain circumstances are not in favour. We need to fight and fight hard. The biggest adversary of Pakistan is Pakistanis themselves especially the corrupt ones sitting at the helm of likened institutes to PCB.

We win such battles through determination and the will of corrupt-free marbles. In pursuit of the greater good for our people. Let's forget our enemies and focus on ourselves.

Bowing down is not the way forward my friend.

The western world needs to understand countries like Pakistan are also part of this globe and are not to be treated inadequately.

Where there is a will there is a way.

Honestly Pakistan can do both...
Cotton grows in Pakistan and already a decent tech environment which can boom

I want pakistan to dominate textiles for jobs, IT for money while pharma, electronics, minerals can also bring in decent money

Textiles for jobs, other stuff to bring money

It sure as hell is and we can see why the Anglo Saxons are acting the way they are. Zero fvck was given.

Time to move on and boycott the nations the same way that backstabbed Pakistan at the last minute.

As for their compensation, they can shove it where the sun doesn't shine.
What Pakistan should do immediately in short term is some how promote cricket in China on a mass scale and also central Asian republic nations and Turkey would be a good idea, once there is a strong interest then its time to shove the ICC whose loyalty and interest lies with big three, but having said that any team that refuses to play Pakistan on home soil, Pakistan should do the vice versa.

Man, we can do many things unimaginable to the world. But first, we need to start thinking collectively for the betterment of our society. Pakistanis have a way of being lone warriors. Not giving a toss as long as our tummies are satisfied, so to speak. It's our way of life, unfortunately, passed on maybe for centuries. This has to change.

Learn to write, then read some books. Then come back and write something coherent.
You taking digs at people does not portray a very well mannered human being. It just exhibits your character for the people to observe.

A human's true worth is in his mastery of words and tongue for the greater good, not the degradation of others.

This is exactly what Pakistan should do for cultural exchange.
