A bad hair day eh?



Mom: What is that thing?

aMmAr: That thing is Lasith Malinga. He plays for the Srilankan cricket team.

Mom: Ok-ay…but what is that thing on his head?

aMmAr: Well there is a very long story behind that hair duo, but people say that once upon a time he was making pop corns in his kitchen and the next thing you know he is this thing.

Mom: That’s why you should never allow kids near Michele Jackson and pop corn machines.

But jokes apart I am very contented on the Pakistani team win against the ‘Lankans. The Lady luck was on our side this time for a change. Damn we needed something to cheer about. Murders, accidents, terrorist attacks the whole country is mystified and down in the dumps. Maybe cricket will bring some contentment on the faces of the poor inhabitants of the country.

Cricket has always been the connecting factor for us. Pakistanis from unlike sect, political view point, classes join in and cheer for their national team. We are very critical of our team. We are forever ready to crucify our national heroes on their awful performances. But similarly we do identify the talent and position of a particular cricketer and give them their due place as well. We don’t over do it like the Indians, for example they still want Ganguly to lead the team. I mean come on its not 1997, give YUVA (younger) generation some chance. But then It’s not my team so I better keep my jaws shut😛

Coming back to the T20 World Cup it’s a very long way to go. Pakistan has to play against the Aussies and to defeat them is quite impracticable but hey you never know. Maybe the Ramadan charm might work this time as well.

But technically speaking we definitely need to change our batting order. Misbah should be brought up the order. Kamran should open and Afridi should be given the one down position. I know nobody in South Africa is reading this post but does that ever stopped any one in this region from giving his/her expert opinion? The answer is NO😛

But then It’s not my team so I better keep my jaws shut :P//. I loved the use of Yuva. Dhoni is the Captain now so we are changing🙂 You can comment on any team as a cricket lover.

    Naaaah, c’mon buddy…. I remember reading news, after a particular world cup defeat, of Pak cricketers being chased by mobs when seen in public🙂 But nice conversation between you and your mom. I am feeling home-sick now😦

    @ beeca


    They surely did, one hit and that cup would have been ours. But no worries Indians are our brothers🙂 and it was a very close fight.

    Thanks Ammar. We are indeed a family. You should be proud of your team. They really played well. Feel bad for Misbah, he nearly took the game away from us.
