Sohail's fervent plea to Pak govt. to save 'people's sport' cricket from extinction

Former Pakistani batsman Aamir Sohail has made an appeal to the Pakistan government to check the deteriorating state of affairs of cricket in the country.


Lahore, Oct 11: Former Pakistani batsman Aamir Sohail has made an appeal to the Pakistan government to check the deteriorating state of affairs of cricket in the country.

"The government must realize it is not just a sport. In Pakistan, a country where there are so many religious, political and other divisions, a country where people are facing so many crises and problems, the government must realize that cricket has always served as a unifying factor," The Daily Times quoted Sohail, as saying.

He said that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) under Chairman Ijaz b*tt has failed, and stressed that cricket was being damaged beyond repair in the country.

"The chief patron must wake up to the reality and the seriousness of the crisis. Good governance is all about recognizing the potential of cricket to unify the people and bring happiness and joy in their lives," Sohail said.

"I am really surprised that a seasoned political party like the Pakistan People's Party has still not realized that things are not moving forward with this present set up and chairman," he added.
