Cricket is a dying sport we should focus on varied sports, like hockey, boxing, wrestling and so on. We have poured countless stacks into this crooked pastime, where the money could have been invested in activities that matter on the world athletic stage.

Heck, the last time I was seen holding a cricket bat was when I was inside nappies. That too probably for a photoshoot.

who cares? its just a game. If it gets cancelled you don't need to cry like babies.
1. Pakistanis have been waiting 18 years for intl cricket to return to the country
2. The manner in which the entire affair was handled was unethical
3. This has caused national embarrassment to the self-esteem and what many would perceive the prestige of the nation
4. this unilateral decision will mean other teams visiting Pakistan will now likely change their plans.

Who loses out? The people of Pakistan, Pakistani cricketers, the Pakistani economy.

Think before you type next time.

NZ burned many hearts today. Very disappointing.


Soccer takes a toll on the physical well-being of dedicated players; injuries may compound over time. Many have weak bone density and Vitamin D deficiency in Pakistan unfortunately. This is my observation at localized levels.

Another factor is that Pakistani Soccer team(s) are unable to qualify for Soccer World Cup in trial matches.
We have excellent talent ...sheedi tribe is master and can produce world class players. But, corruption sucked football. I have once seen there game long ago in Islamabad ... they were brilliant player but belong to very poor segment of society, same we great talent in Baluchistan. ...

Pakistan squeeze into Street Child World Cup 2018 final

Moscow - Pakistan have qualified for the final of the Street Child World Cup 2018 in Russia, making history as they beat Indonesia in a nail-biting semi-final on Monday.
The boys in green outclassed Indonesia 5-4 on penalties to secure their place in the final, where they will face Uzbekistan for the trophy. Team Pakistan, funded and supported by the Muslim Hands Foundation, looked in good form since the start of the semi-final, and didn’t let their Indonesian counterparts score. The match remained a goal-less draw when the final whistle blew. In penalty shoot-outs, both the teams managed to score four goals each. But in additional penalties, Indonesia missed the target after conceding a goal to Pakistan.
Captain Mohammad Abdullah is confident his players would put up a good show in the final as well. “We are happy that we have qualified for the final. Insha’Allah we will keep Pakistan’s flag high in the final as well,” Abdullah said from Moscow. “The boys are highly motivated,” he added.
Abdur Rasheed, head coach of Muslim Hands Pakistan Street Child team, said that the team would give its best to bring the gift of the trophy home. “I request everyone in Pakistan to pray for our success,” he said and added: “Insha’Allah, if the boys play according to their abilities then we will gift victory to the nation.”
Earlier in the tournament, Pakistan played a goal-less equaliser against Uzbekistan in the first match, then defeated Russia 3-1 and Tajikistan 2-0 on way to the semi-final. The Street Child World Cup is traditionally held in the host country of the World Cup a month before to highlight the global social issue of youth homelessness. Since its launch in South Africa in 2010, the tournament has travelled to Brazil and now to Russia, where there are some 55,000 registered orphans, according to official statistics. The tournament’s stars are orphans, who were either abandoned by their parents or come from extreme poverty. The participants are 230 boys and girls from 21 countries aged 14 to 17.

It is expected that Pakistan will win the final against Uzbekistan,” he hoped. The PFF chief said that not only the federation but also the entire nation is well-pleased with the results.
Muslim Hands head Zia-Ul-Noor and coach Abdul Rasheed have chosen a perfect squad for World Cup, players responded well with performance and they all deserve appreciation.
Faisal said that the Muslim Hands has highlighted the positive impact of Pakistan. “The PFF will keep supporting the organisation in promoting football and positive activities.

Cancellation of tour is far better than Indian supported terrorists succeeding in carrying out an attack during a match or even worse hurt some player. The later can cause another black out period for another decade. Cancellation is a lesser evil with no damage to reputation.

I never played this sport as from the very beginning it looked worthless.
