Pakistan won the Asia Cup Final .. by mistake!

No where in the game till the last bowl did Pakistan look like a winning combination by any means possible. There seemed to be no real dedication in the players and the whole outlook of the team was simply lazy. Just like Misbah ul Haq the current Captain of the team.

Leaders are so important in any field of life and the whole Pakistani Cricket Board is filled with uneducated and incapable people who don't know anything about management and discipline.

I don't know who thinks Pakistan has a very good playing unit. There are so many players in the team that are not fit for cricket at all or at least for one day cricket. I always thought Misbah isn't a good option for one day cricket. Same goes for Younis Khan. I don't know why they keep him around in the team anyway?

Younis Khan has only managed to score 6 fifties in 2011 out of 24 innings. He hasn't scored a hundred. Which shows that all of his knocks were pretty ordinary. He comes in to chip in for some balls. Mostly wastes diliveries. If he is not getting enough runs on the board at least he should be scoring them at a faster rate. His overall strike rate is only 75.81.

With that sort of a track record I wouldn't want somebody coming at number 3 or middle down the order. He's not a match winner by far when it comes to One Day Cricket.

I don't even understand how Misbah ul Haq is even considererd as a candidate for being in the team, let alone the Captain of the team!

Misbah hasn't scored a century in One Day Cricket out of his 86 innings to date. He only has 19 Fifties! We're getting the same kind of pattern here. Someone who blocks deliveries, uses time and does not take the team to finish. His strike rate is 75.22.

Are these the kind of players you select for your anchor role? We really should have players that can control and dominate the game rather than block and stop the ball and call it another day type of cricketers who don't even understand the game.

But besides all the drama, here are the happy winning moments. :)

Why is Sachin Tendulkar not the best batsman in the world?

Purpose of his article is to clear the illusion from a lot of people's minds that Sachin Tendulkar is the best batsman in the world on the basis that he has got more centuries than anybody else.

Coming straight to the facts,

Sachin has played 177 test matches to date. Generally a batsman gets 2 innings in a test match. Sachin mostly played in upper order so there's a good chance he has played most of the second innings as well. He has played 453 ODIs.

Total innings to date Sachin played are 290 + 453 = 743. That's a huge number for any batsman by today's standards.

So if he's played 743 innings and total centuries are 98, then

98 / 743 * 100 = 13.19%.

So his total conversion rate for centuries is 13.19% per game to get a century. For a batsman who has opened 330 ODI innings for his country.

I'll wait for that day

I know you think of me sometimes even if it is for a fraction of a second. In the while you try to forget about me again. Although there is a portion of your heart that holds the thoughts and memories about me. You have hidden them so deep that you don't even realize they are there.

You don't want me around, even though you would like my company sometimes. You think about those magical days, when we used to be together. It wasn't something special, but it wasn't something ordinary either. I won't come back in your life. I know it's not to be. But I would still remember you, never forget, just like I promised.

That is the way I am, not caring, but still caring enough. You might be with someone else now, I know. But that deep nook in your heart is still empty. It loathes for my company. You know there's a space that needs to be filled. No matter how much you ignore, how much you tempt yourself with the trivialities of life, it won't be filled. It will mak…
