An early ouster: Pakistan team’s poor performance unveil internal rifts

Hasan

 

Pakistan was defeated by Australia in the all-important World Cup encounter by 21 runs and sent Pakistan packing home. Pakistan had to win this game in order to keep theri hopes in this tournament alive but was defeated by the Kangaroos and will now be going home as their campaign is already over. Australia has just one game to go in this tournament now; against India. It is a must-win game for Australia while India might get through even if they lose by a close margin. As for Pakistan, their campaign is over; while their captain Shahid Afridi is most probably going to retire too. In the post-match ceremony, Shahid Afridi said that he would decide about his retirement only after going back to Pakistan. He added that his captaincy wasn t good enough but he might continue serving Pakistan as a batsman. The Pakistani cricket machinery – top to bottom – can no longer be forgiven for finally running the sport into the ground. According to news reports, Afridi has finally realised his presence no longer does him, the team, or the fans any good. And others, including some old-timers, as well as the selector and coach, have been informed of their impending unceremonious departure upon arrival back home. But all this has happened before. So often the national outfit has gone for an important outing – usually the longer format World Cup – and returned, after a drubbing, to a shake-up up-and-down the team order. Waqar knows this better than most people; he was captain in the disastrous ’03 World Cup in South Africa, after all, after which he never played for Pakistan; nor did Wasim Akram or Saeed Anwar for that matter. A similar overhaul took place after the next Cup, after the loss to Ireland forced us out early. And not much has changed since then. Not much is likely to, either, unless necessary action is taken where the rot is centred – the PCB. Shaharyar Khan and Najam Sethi see it fit to chuck out non-performers but refuse to apply the same logic to themselves. Time and again the improper nature of their appointments has been exposed, to the disadvantage of the team and the country, yet they continue to enjoy their ‘prestigious’ assignments. Since these positions come with more than a fair share of perks, not just the financial kind, they must also be held accountable according to strict standards. Unless the Board is cleansed of this incompetence and disintegration, not much is going to change.
