Boom Boom disgrace!!!

In an another embarrassing episode of Pakistan cricket Sahibzada Mohammad Shahid Khan Afridi, a veteran of 293 ODIs, was caught tampering the the ball in the last ODI against Australia on Sunday. This is the second time in his career that Afridi is charged with ball tampering, the first being in 2005. What’s even more astonishing is that Afridi seems to justify his horrendous act: “There is no team in the world that doesn’t tamper with the ball. My methods were wrong. I am embarrassed, I shouldn’t have done it. I just wanted to win us a game but this was the wrong way to do it,” he told Geo TV.

 Boom Boom disgrace!!!

 Imagine, what would happen if this guy is made captain of all 3 formats of the game? What kind of example are we setting for our youth? That it’s okay to cheat as long as you can win? The problem with Pakistan cricket is that similar to our politicians, we never held our cricketers accountable for their actions. We need to makes examples out of the Afridis and Akhtars of Pakistan who again and again tarnish the image of their country and then proudly make a comeback to the national side to become heroes once again.  

 I have had enough of these cheats and wish that for once, we can make the right call and shut all doors on them!

    It’s such a shame! We need drastic changes in this country’s cricket management structure including dismissal of so-called ‘senior’ players who take selection into team as their natural right. Bring the U-19 team into mainstream and dismiss all ‘star’ players of the senior one.

    Slightly diagree. We have made politicians accountable many times ( throwing in jails, exiles, getting their governments kicked out, confiscating property and yah hanging them). What we have never held accountable though are Army and Judiciary. A little accuracy will be appreciated.

    All is fair in love and war and sports.

    BTW ‘hum hain Pakastani hum to jeetain gay haan jeetain gay’

    But what is more hypocritical is the purported attempt at being a good deeni bacha with a beard. Why can’t these guys become the normal maulvis, eat halwa and bitch about others.
