    The problems with pakistan's cricket?

    Can any one higlight the problems with pakistani cricket? i know there are many, but highlight some 4, 5 main problems

    I believe pakistans team is one of the most talented in the world, but some thing is wrong. Thats why we dont win to many matches these days.

    Too much political involvement with the board. Coaches aren't allowed to as they want, and players are out of control. Not a solid, professonal domestic structure that can consistently produce finished products. All problems in India too, but seems amplifed in Pakistan.

    Yet another team that's got a lot of talent, but near-zero research and planning.

    I think the inadequacies of the PCB have been discussed ad infinitum. I can't possibly recall every complaint I've heard about them - in fact I've heard so many it's hard to pick any out TBH. As with the WICB - a good cricket team with a seriously woeful board is very difficult. Not impossible, because sometimes talent will out, but very difficult indeed.

    Trouble is, I don't think anyone seriously expects any great improvement or sees one anywhere on or beyond the horizon.

    Post was very much in jest TBH. He hasn't been in the Test team for years and he *almost* justifies his selection in ODIs on bowling alone anyway these days.

    The stigma surrounding him typifies a lot of their problems but I was in no way suggesting that Afridi actually was the root of all evil.

    Undoubtedly, though, had he taken-up lawn bowls and found himself excellence at that hence never picking-up cricket bat or ball, Pakistan cricket would have been better-off in the last, say, 6-7 years or so.

    one of the problems is that the players complain a lot .... we saw how Butt was complaining in IPL that he is being made to sit in the bench so you can imagine what would be in the Pak squad

    we have ppl complaining abt Akthar and Asif not bowling together but teams like India were without its key batsman and some key bowlers too in the Asia Cup

    we have the coach complaining abt the press, the board member complaining abt the team, Akthar complaining abt the ban, Afridi complaining about YK and not listening to him, when TK took captaincy for a brief while in one of the tours to WI. may be the one where Afridi sent out flying kisses to one of the WI bowlers

    there is too much complaining, be it players, fans, board officials, coach, etc

    the big problem is that may be they look at a half filled glass and say 'it's half empty'

    just my 2 cents

    It all comes down to attitude, and quite frankly that of most Pakistani players is poor. Not to mention the administration is a complete and utter shambles, very incompetent.
