I received this email from a reader in Australia. Happy to note that we are allowed to post it. Readers are invited to comment and offer their views (Raza Rumi).
I’m a lover of cricket in all its forms. I played it, my son still plays it as do two of my grandchildren. I like to see tough contests, and unlike many other Australians I don’t mind if we lose if the opposition is clearly better (OK, may not quite so with England).
I was strongly looking forward to the current tour by Pakistan, but I’m almost breathless at the way the teams shoots itself in the foot, the toe, the mouth and whatever else they can find. I remember the Pakistani greats – Imran, Javed, Wasim, Waqar and so on, and they must feel really embarrassed by this tour.
Yousuf is fine batsman, but he’s no captain at this level. Trying to beat Australia in Australia with defensive tactics almost beggars belief. Political figures should step out of team matters and leave appointments to those who know them best.
Is anyone in Pakistan fed up? How do you feel about this matter?
Feel free to post my views on the Pak Tea House site because I’d like to see what response it gets
