    I think Muhammad Asif is also a good choice for Pakistan cricket.

    And they had some really good batsmen for street cricket. I think they took us very lightly, lol.

    Street, it's quite opened compared to a typical street cricket field where you usually only have a mid on and a mid off. We are lucky to have Mid wicket and covers open, nothing behind fine leg or point.
    We usually don't have 10 overs, 8 is most of the times maximum we would have. I think the average score in say 5 overs is 60 to 70. I have a 100 plus score being made in 6 overs.

    Glad you created a thread for cricket but these days, weather changed from winters to hot summer. I don't think many of us even watching latest Pak WD series. I am not watching it :)

    There are number of other sports but don't know why we from childhood to a young man, always likes cricket.

    I'm deliberately trying to avoid getting into that debate brother.
    read some comments and found it terrible the way several posters are responding to whole situation.
    My point of view on whole matter right now is that there is a legal procedure laid down and let that be followed.
    I'm sure the person in question will be given a fair chance to appeal against the verdict and Indian government will spare no efforts in ensuring good legal assistance. The diplomatic pressure too has a role to play and i'm waiting to see how things pan out.
    that said i still feel sorry the way some comments are coming, in media as well as here on forum.

    i thought so!

    btw, is there a national level academy supported by PCB for above work.
    i mean corporate sponsorship and scholarships are always welcome, but on under 14/15 and under 17/19 levels, you require proper training, coaching and medical fitness experts and that job on a massive scale (given huge number of aspiring players), should always be in purview of national board.

    Back in those days of uncovered pitches and no helmets protection even against bowlers like Lillie, Thomson, Imran, Sir Vivian's aggression to take on hostile fast bowling is a feat, that shall remain unmatched.
    Happy Birthday!

    The key was fearless, which we don't see today even with batsmen with helmets. Short ball scares them.
