I assume being a Pakistani fan is like being in a room with Delta Goodrem talking about her struggles, or watching as someone slowly drills out one of your eyeballs.
Today the only non-Akmal wicket keeper left in their country has retired.
Why? Well we can only take his word for it, but it looks like he’s left because he refused to match fix and had his life threatened.
It doesn’t make him very gangsta, but it might make him the Rosa Parks of the Pakistan cricket team.
This is part of what he said, “I would rather flee away than sell out the dignity and respect of my motherland.”
The ICC might fine him for not saying he wants to put the balls in the right area.
He arrived in the UK visa less and without return ticket, so he is probably locked up in a cage right now.
Now he is claiming asylum in the UK, and probably talking contracts with Derbyshire.
I suggest, if he is going to hide in the UK, there is no better place than Derbyshire, I’ve lived in the UK for a couple of years and have no idea where it is.
It is too early to really know what the hell is going on.
I am willing to trust Zully Q-dawg for now, I mean, he isn’t about to make a fortune on the chatshow circuit, so giving up an international career is a big call for someone so new to the game.
If he finds himself needing a meal in London, I’ll get him some chicken as we sit around my place slagging off the Akmals.
I think that would cheer him up, it always cheers me up.
