I couldn't quite get what you intended samir. I understand that the charmingly erratic view of pakistan should go. But what needs to be done?i didn't quite get it.

Siva: Thanks for your comment. I'm not sure myself. But roughly: hold Pakistani cricket to a higher standard of behavior - but this can't be done till the ICC structure changes. Secondly, be more critical of Pakistani dysfunction, and not indulge its constant paranoia. Again, this needs a lot of working out and frankly, the discussion will not stay purely cricketing then.

Hi Samir,

Been a while since I posted a comment here.

A piece of conversation on Twitter took me to this article you wrote on Different Strokes.

Let me congratulate you on an hinest, clean piece sans the smudging grime of PCness.

I think you mean well for Pakistan cricket with greater sincerity than those you mentioned.

What needs to be done is another question and I don't think that was what you were trying to cover in your article.

Good article Sir, and very clearly well understood by lay persons like yours truly.

What is to be done to truly change instead of cosmetic games is Pakistan's lookout...what we can do is quit those things you suggested we quit doing.

SB: Thanks for your comments. The point to be made in there was a little difficult to express clearly and I'm not sure I did a great job. But it's nice to know you've cottoned on to it.

Yes, I support the ban on others, but Yousaf, & Younas Ban for life is a bit too harsh. Instead, Malik, Rana, & Kamran Akmal should have been banned for life!

WHY I AM SAYING THIS? READ THIS POST AND DECIDE:
