Pathetic cricket

03 Dec 2019


HONESTLY, I am not at all a cricket fan. However, when I was watching the second Test match between Australia and Pakistan, I was shocked at the miserable way in which the Pakistani cricket team performed. Is this the best that our national cricket team can do? On the other hand, the Australian side shone in all departments.

I urge the government to stop their lucrative pay cheques immediately or at least reduce it by half as it is the taxpayers’ money that is being spent on them.

As for head coach Misbahul Haq he should forgo 75 per cent of his remuneration.
