It is a Green morning, that is what I was thinking this morning while I was looking out of my window when the colours of spring were all over the trees across the road. They were green and dancing with the air, so I was not alone to enjoy and celebrate Pakistan Day today. Yes, its 23rd March and the biggest feature of the day, for many people, is the quarter final of ICC Cricket World Cup where Pakistan is playing against West Indies, former 2 time world champions and known as black windstorm. It is an important match and all the best wishes for the men in Green. However, there is a significance of this day in our history. 71 years ago, our elders decided what their goal is and how they will gain it, it was given the name Pakistan Resolution out of sarcasm but it was accepted with open arms by the Muslims of this region.
Initially I decided to write about the team announced for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. Name it my laziness or any other thing I never been able to write about it, anyhow many other blogger fellows have done this job already, but there was one thing that was disturbing for me and with every single passing day it started to get more and more crucial? I guess it has been for the first time in Pakistani cricket that the team for the biggest event of the game has been announced and the leader of the team yet to be announced. Lobbying, grouping, double-crossing, has become part of the game for last two decades almost. After match-fixing, the course of grouping has destroyed cricket in Pakistan the most. We can see the same thing now. In an interview ex captain, Inzmam-ul-Haq said that team is divided in two parts and they are not going to play world cup they will show that who is in what group.
