An encroaching cricketing season ahead

They say ‘cricket is followed like a religion in subcontinent’. Nothing is more true when it comes to Lahore. I’ve had problems coping with a short 19 steps pitch here, where every ball rises up to your chin. This was little (considerably more than less) different than situation back in Islamabad where on a 21 steps pitch, not so many deliveries actually signal at knocking your head off. But I’m not going to talk about my personal failures and fiascos at the moment; this is more about exciting cricketing season ahead.

Locally, there was thand program for the whole season, but England is visiting us in October. Propspects of an exciting cricketing times ahead. They will touch down in Pakistan on 26th, I guess, but I’m already following the dates for matches in Lahore. And our coach is already hinting at bursting Englishmen’s Ashes bubble while others suggest difficult times for not-so-invincible English side.

I might be late for the selection bashing for so-called-super-duper-team going to compete against Aussies in Super Series. Tendulkar is having nightmares with his fitness; Inzamam might prove to be worthy replacement. Am I too optimistic against selectors’ bias? But finally, Inzamam made it to nominees for ICC Player of the Year 2004-2005.

And the celebrations has already begun. Our 20:20 champions Faisalabad Wolves ripped off Somerset in International 20:20 tournament today. And Pakistan A crushed Australia’s second-string to make it more grieve for Aussies.
