Are you holding a bat?


What is a better way to celebrate 75th anniversary of Pakistan Resolution day?

Though Pakistan holds their Republic Day after seven years (click here for more details) of chaos and mishaps; I was more fantasised with Wahab v Watson article on Cricinfo. A 29-year old Lahori, Wahab Riaz, made his name in history of ODI cricket and made us remember the legend, Wasim Akram. It’s not only Wahab’s performance that made me excited but it’s the comments from all around the world, from different countries, from different ages … how they praised Wahab Riaz.

“Are you holding a bat?” – a simple question from Watson to Wahab gave him the push he needed. I wish Watson should have said something similar to everyone in Pakistani team; but whatever.

Though Pakistan got knocked out from World Cup 2015, but Wahab Riaz kept our words in front of our non-Pakistani colleagues. He showed that Pakistan has the best bowling attack; and if we had good support in batting and fielding, we would have been the strongest team.

Now we have a long way ahead. I wish Pakistan Cricket Board arrange couple of series with other countries in coming months, so that we can see some more action form our action figures. 🙂
