Sue, sue, sue your board

About time. Hopefully, this will be the first of many lawsuits, directed at all and any boards that either a) behave like feudal landlords or goose-stepping storm-troopers or b) meekly obey the edicts of those who do. Enough is enough.

So what do you think the outcome will be? I feel (and hope) that Akhtar comes out the winner, atleast in terms of being able to play for Pakistan again. There is no real winner in this feud, though.

By the way, you have a nice blog here. If you are interested in link exchange then add my blog at www.cricketstatistics.in and leave a comment over at my blog so I can add yours as well! :)

Wiz: I'm not a huge fan of Akhtar, so it won't bother me if he doesn't come out a winner in his battle with the PCB Board, but I'd like to see Boards' powers curtailed. Especially the way the BCCI is handling the ICL.

Yeah ultimately everyone does agree that the Board uses their influence to act as aggressors when that is not really necessary.

By the way, I have added you to my blogroll :)

Akthar should have been banned long ago for that fake anglo-american accent he speaks in...

Wiz: Thanks very much. You've been linked to as well. Cheers.

PB: Is that what it is? I always had a hard time understanding him. I do remember Wasim Akram finding it absolutely hilarious once. I did too!

I think for the rest of his life, Shoaib would be seen more in the courtroom than anywhere else. Do have a look at my blog Doosra, which sports a Shoaib-obsessed look these days -- last 3 pieces being on him!

Do visit my blog and make a comment if you are interested in link exchange so that I can add you in my blogroll.
thanks

It would disappoint me if Ahktar ended up being the saviour of cricketers rights when he has abused them for so long.
