Proud of Pakistan – First Virus invention by Pakistanis was appreciated in positive manner on international level

Being a Pakistani IT professional, I was always afraid of talking about the invention of Virus which I knew was from Pakistan but the recent interview forwarded to me made me feel proud of those individuals who did the same. I would like to share this video with my readers and followers who can understand that making virus was an achievement not sin as their invention just opened a new dimension in IT field.

The interview was well taken and need extra ordinary appreciation for the respect and honor given to these professionals. I am really proud of Pakistan and can confidently say that we are the ones who invented PC virus but not for the wrong reasons.

Kamran Akmal – a wicket keeper with a big question mark

Kamran Akmal was selected in the Pakistani team as a specialist wicket keeper. The ICC world cup being a prime competition demands extra ordinary readiness and concentration which lacked in Kamran Akmal. This seems that he is not putting in efforts required for such an important occasion. God knows that whether these drops were deliberate or mistake.

Being the sole choice among available lot is something hearting Kamran Akmal. The poor Zulqarnain, for some weird reasons left the wicket keeping slot opened for his not so competitive competitor. I must say that Zulqarnain had made a bad mistake of losing his position as a best alternative to Kamran Akmal. If he can come back and satisfy PCB, he should be given another chance to take gloves. After all those controversies surrounding Kamral Akmal, at least Zulqarnain was not involved in corruption related investigation and should be pardoned after imposing some penalties.

Replacing Kamran behind the wickets is not feasible, but he should be well aware of the reaction he could face if he continues with such performances in this mega event. Pakistan if loses its place in quarter finals will divert attention towards his miserable performance so he should compensate the same immediately in next matches with gloves and bat.

Ignoring Anwar Ali after such a splendid performance raise doubts on PCB’s selection criteria

After hearing news of inclusion of Junaid Khan into world cup squad I wonder why this lad was ignored for good five years after consistent performance in domestic circuit. I must say that we are not giving fair opportunities to our great talent and sticking to bad performers hoping for miracles from them. We should now seriously support talent in Pakistan.

World Cup Winner Pakistan – Cricket Talent ignored in Pakistan due to absense of rotation policy

This is unfortunately true that cricket talent is at its best in Pakistan but due to absense of rotation policy, deserving players are unable to make it to the final 11. By watching this video one can realize that after full 5 years we have not seen many of these top performers making to senior side although they proved their worth in domestic. We stick to old guns and not give ample opportunities to budding talent due to lobby system and pathetic selection board.

I must say that a formula should be derived to give automatic entry of top performers in national team. Since there are lot of minnows now, we should regularly arrange series with countries like Ireland, Kenya, Canada and Afghanistan to give chances to new lot and groom them for international arena. I hope my words will be noticed by aimless PCB.

Following is the video of impressive performance of Pakistan Under 19 world cup win against India in 2006. Our seniors should get strength from this galant display.
