    Nation also needs to support the game whether its a win or loss, a great time for Pakistan team or a bad time. If its the game they love, they should support it in any case.

    A very recent experience worth mentioning here:
    20/20 Canada this past weekend. The qualifying match Pak vs Srilanka. Pakistan chased a target of 138. Lost wickets is typical fashion until no 7, with 3 overs remaining and high 20s to score…
    Statistically, realistically and technically all was not lost… but some of Pakistanis left the stands & I just could shake my head. This is the level of patience and sports spirit that our nation has. If they leave the stands, why do they expect the team to stand on the ground?
    People did leave & to my happy surprise the team pulled a comeback in the 2nd last over and won the game.

    As far as cricket is concerned our nation wants just wins.

    Its true that our performance has deteriorated (due to a lot of factors) but this is when the team needs a nation’s support the most.

    Ali Dada

    Are you some sort of nut that you wish to bring a totaliatarian and isolationist dictatorship in Pakistan just to improve the standard of cricket?

    Why dont you just move to North Korea instead?

    I think its absolutely disgusting that Australia refuses to play in Pakistan but plays in India with so many bomb blasts happening there as well

    @Ali Dada,

    I had a rye smile when I read your “solutions”. Peoples like you ARE the problem with your inward thinking. Your solution of banning everything foreign is going to lead to ….more talibanisation…more islamisation …and ultimately to shariat…which I am not entirely against …after all Pak was split from India based on religion.

    But a for real solutions…. we need must encompass learning to live within the means that we have. This means looking at the land, water, economic resources that we have and projected to have.

    Immediately this will tell you that we cannot support the population of Pak.

    1) So the PRIMARY problem is to educate peoples to STOP (or severly slowdown) the “production” of babies. If necessary …pass a law that no more than 2 babies per new family from a specific date….help peoples by giving out condoms….support this by hukumat building new condom factories in every major city…and hand out free condoms per family…keep a register….stop the madness…we don’t need so many peoples…we cannot support them.

    Have a monetary fine if a third child is born with possible vivisection if a fourth is born.

    Peoples WILL learn this lesson if only in this way.

    2) If you want to educate the peoples in science & education …then you need to shut down the maddrassae.

    But as soon as this is mentioned the religious community will
    create havoc… you KNOW that a big change is required…but no one even wants to talk about this let alone implement.

    So you see your solutions are no solution at all…you don’t tackle the fundamentals….and without changing the roots….nothing CAN change.

    Fullness of time will show that I am right.
