Pakistan turn to the Windies

Yes, it got that bad.

After India, Sri Lanka and wussey Oceanic nations said no, Pakistan finally turned to the fat kid, and said, “West Indies, I pick you.” And then added “I suppose.”

No one is sure whether even the ugly, fat kid will get involved in Pakistan’s increasingly pooey team.

The WICB website doesn’t seem to have registered the proposal. Its last news item is dated in July. Apparently, nothing has happened to the entire region during the summer.

The proposition is an interesting test of sociological convention: which is more dangerous, downtown Islamabad or uptown Kingston?

It’s a tricky one, but hopefully, armed with bat-like clubs and full body protection, the Windies are tooled up to hit the streets and get involved in some serious action.

I say that excitedly, although the only action that the West Indies busy themselves with is of the “rear guard” kind. And rarely with much commitment then.

You rather feel that Pakistan has been buoyed by the BCCI’s bolshiness, and attempted similarly bullying of the world. The world, though, realising that Pakistan is a dodgy backwater, simply say, “farty pants.” And all goes tits up.

Talking of tits us, seen Herr Warne’s recent comments? HA!

If the Windies turn them down, surely they'll have to choice but to turn to Bermuda and the mighty Sluggo!

Pakistan has an option of turning to ICL'ed team of Bangladesh to play whatever format of the game they want to play and with guaranteeed success :)

its not funny at all seeing one major test playing nation getting reduced to this...

they have not played tests since ages and it looks will be pressed hard to see some ODIs action too...

PCB seems to have loose plot big time...by this they will loose their talent rapidly to rivals like ICL...if not already...

its high time now to introduce neutral avenues to the countries where touring seems bit iffy...
