PAKISTAN FLAG in a CRICKET STADIUM
Ace Pakistani International Cricketer Mohammad Yousuf today has said that he is not happy with the amount of International exposure given to the Pakistan cricket national side. Importantly, after Australia has terminated their tour to Pakistan, Pakistan will end up this year by playing not even a single test.
Yousuf, who has represented Pakistan in 269 ODIs and in 79 Tests, has expressed his concern over the current situation with the Pakistan cricket. He is not only disappointed, but feels that such situation has never had with any international cricket side.
The last blow to the cricket loving country was of course when the ICC decided to pull out the Champions Trophy from Pakistan that was scheduled to play here from 12th September 2008.
Yousuf also expressed his concern over the fact that lack of Test Cricket will actually decrease the ability to play strong and skillful cricket among the current Pakistan players. In this craze of T20 cricket, the real test is of course the Test Cricket and even that stops then it will be really a blow to the Pakistan Cricket.
