Look at India, which conducts more than a million tests a day.
My state with a population of 30 million alone conducts 65k tests a day on average. Meanwhile, Pakistan conducts 45k tests a day and is talking about how cases in "Endia" are high.
whatever you do, none of our concern and kindly stop spreading the virus in south asia.

Don't know why my fellow members bring India into it. This has nothing to with India or the number of tests for Covid-19 carried out in one day. Why do we have a tendency to sidestep the real issue and indulge in needless mudslinging?

It was clearly the responsibility of Pakistani authorities to ensure that all members of the cricket squad are Covid-19 free before the team was allowed to board the plane. It is a highly embarrassing situation for Pakistan and could have been easily avoided through due diligence.

This is a case of total 'INCOMPETENCY & NEGLIGENCE' on the part of someone at the Pakistani Cricket board. But as usual, no one will be punished for this misconduct.

You once again miss the point. An indian searches on google looking for something that portrays Pakistan in poor light and starts a thread. Can’t you see this gentleman does this on a regular basis and Pakistan patriots like you you miss the fact it fascinates and eeks him enough to start this thread and ignore any of the 10 threads concerning anything to do with India. Why would he find it newsworthy and posting on here? Hence he gets a response from members expressing “ it ain’t any better in your back yard”.
Of course the PCB are an embarrassment especially the individual players - strict action to avoid embarrassing escapades like this.
Also please respectfully don’t sit their naively not putting 2 and 2 together.

A famous poet called Sheikh Saadi had said 700 years ago " Chira kare kunad aaqil kay baad ayad pasheemani". Meaning a wise man does not do things that would cause him embarrassment later.

You would agree that had Pakistan Cricket Board been more diligent, this would not have happened and the Indians and the Indian media would not be gloating at our expense. I am not being naive, I am simply pointing out why to do things that cause us embarrassment?

"don't you know who I am? I will have you fired. I will have you demoted."
a line usually thrown at a low ranking person at a check post, at a counter or at a desk in Pakistan.

disregarding instructions, due care, SOPs is hard wired in our national attitude. we boast on how we broke traffic signals, broke laws and broke the queue rules to get our way.
its a shock for people when they join army that they cant do this anymore just because who their father is or or rich or influential tribe they belong to.

our players who are representing our country did exactly what we do every day life as a habit. they will look puzzled at you if you yell at them for not listening to instructions or burst out laughing.
