Players like Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Jasprit Bumrah and Kagiso Rabada may hold the top spots in the ICC rankings in different formats of the game and may even be considered to be the face of modern cricket, but people who have put them on such a high pedestal are completely missing out on the bigger picture.
Those who call themselves “ardent fans of the game” and believe that teams like England, India and Australia are the spearheading forces of cricket in the 21st century are either biased against the brilliance of Pakistani cricket or are oblivious to it.
Hello! Horrible Performance by Pakistan Cricket team

Or maybe they simply lack the creativity to foresee what the game of cricket should look like in the next couple of decades. Earning shit loads of money, regardless of how good you are on the field, has to be the primary objective of any and every player that aspires to become a part of this game and that is all that players like Nasir Jamshed, Yousef Anwar and Mohammed Ijaz were trying to do when they indulged in bribery during the Pakistan Super League.
Why is the judiciary system even trying to interfere with the whole situation anyway? So what if the players decided to promote spot-fixing? They only wanted to earn more money and quench their greed. Now that they have confessed to these “crimes”, albeit forcefully, we can’t even say that they are dishonest.
I remember when I broke this story that Nasir Jamshed is main character of PSL Spot Fixing that time they were saying now Shoaib will be in deep trouble as they will sue him,,,,, after a week PCB disclosed his name and now Nasir Jamshed is admitting his sin pic.twitter.com/ykmUdcZuGp

Another Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) affair that the world just can’t seem to get over is this thing that they do with a few of their cricketers when they hide their real age. Unfortunately referred to an “age fraud”, PCB’s image is being unnecessarily tainted by their own like Rashid Latif who believe that the Board is “making a joke” of themselves.
پاکستان ٹیم کے کھلاڑی انڈر ۱۹ میں جا رہے ہیں انڈر ۱۹ والے انڈر ۱۶ میں انڈر ۱۶ (16) والے انڈر ۱۳ میں اور انڈر ۱۳ والے گود میں واپس جانے کی تیاری میں @TheRealPCB خُدا کا خوف کرو اور عمریں درست کروائیں اور دو نمبر ڈپلومہ ڈاکٹرز کیساتھ ملکر تباہ نا کریں، اور مزاق نا بنائیں 🙏🙏🙏🙏

“Pakistani Cricket Team’s players are going to U-19s. U-19s are going to U-16s, U-16s to U-13s & U-13s back to their mothers’ laps. For God’s sake PCB, correct the ages & don’t destroy (your reputation) by working with crooked diploma doctors, don’t make a joke of yourself,” the former Pakistan captain tweeted.
But it’s a simple solution for them to win a couple of tournaments: make over-aged people play in younger age-group tournaments, what’s wrong with that?
And if you are still not convinced of Pakistani cricket’s global dominance, take a look at their phenomenal performance on the field.
Two T20I defeats by at least nine wickets followed by back-to-back losses by an innings in the two Tests against the Australians should not make a difference in their international superiority for two reasons:
They are still the number one team in T20I

Despite all that, PCB is still wasting their time on talent-less amateurs like Babar Azam and Mohammad Amir and that just might be the only flaw to becoming a superpower in the world of cricket. Everything else is foolproof.
