The Pakistan Cricket Board should start looking for talented players rather than digging from underneath those tried and tested in the years gone by.

Australia and England are in the best shape as they are trying out those who come up to their standard to rule cricket as in the past.

If PTI win elections, maybe we will have a different approach in how we nurture talent, be fair in selection and maintain a good discipline in all sports. We need to change our sports culture and attitudes first.
