Starved Pakistan fans finally get live cricket back
The relief isn’t even just about getting live cricket back. It also has to do with the annoying habits cultivated over the past five months that can now take a back seat, or better yet, disappear completely.
No more of the greatest this eleven or the best that eleven we’d have to see. Those arbitrary collections of best-evers seemed fun at first but content creators kept at it for far too long than was necessary. The result of these xyz lists is that every publication and every cricketer and every mouth now has a whole list of such XIs under their belt. Sadly, a cool once-a-year feature was overdone to death.
Another prominent trend, if we can call it that, witnessed in Pakistani cricket circles was the mudslinging. Plenty of tainted characters from the past used the cricket inactivity to lobby their agendas, dig up their cases and turned hostile when their efforts did not bear fruit.
