Default The world's laughing-stock

I know Pakistan Cricket is passing through a very hard time yet I could not resist myself to post this epic piece from Osman Samiuddin

Here are few paragraphs

I was tempted to write one now, before I realized that I had written one for a local magazine when Pakistan were knocked out of the last World Cup. I was wrong then and am wrong now for Pakistan cricket is not dead. Death would be a blessing, a final blow that we could eventually get over. No, we're in a far worse situation: doomed to exist in a state of perpetual, cyclical near-death, resurrected after every World Cup, only to slowly develop the same cancers, quickly rot, come close to death and then revamp all over again.
On the field, the same ills plague us. We might as well not play openers and better fielders have been spotted in morgues. The same morgues probably have fitter bowlers in them. A touch of green on any surface still produces a whole host of yellow in our batsmen.
All of which means the case for sacking each and every one of them can be made rationally, rather than just emotionally. If we're getting emotional then we should call for the entire team and board to be sacked, maybe to be replaced by the Under-19 team. Or the team from my neighbourhood.

Great stuff. I love Osman's articles. That morgue line made my day. Sucks for the Pakistan fans though

Unfortunately, more crisis for Pakistan as the coach has tragically died and Inzamam has opted to retire from ODI.

The world's laughing stock - paikkas..

could not be more happier...
the drug cheat hyprocrites do not deserve to be in the world cup in the first place...
hope they loose their match against Zims as well...
