  • Hi, just to let you know that Adders, wiff and I have opened the donations page towards contributing to the Cricket Web banners that are being produced for Phil Hughes and Sean Abbott. We're leaving you a message as you mentioned that you may be interested in contributing. Please check out the original thread in Cricket Chat for details. Many thanks.
    You're right about how we are raised.It's got a lot to do with our educational systems.During our school years,the neighbor is always portrayed as the villain and our country is always portrayed as the hero.And then the kids grow up with dislike for the other country.I'm not sure if hate is the correct word though.I think the normal Indian and Pakistani get along just fine.You just mentioned how most of your friends are Pakistanis.The issue lies at the top with the politicians,which gives out a very negative vibe.I'm pretty sure our cricket players are more friendly with each other than with players from other teams because of the shared language,cuisine,culture etc.
    I agree.I've lived all my life in Pakistan.I've been abroad a few times,but i've never lived there for a prolonged period,this i've never interacted with Indians personally.I do however,know a fair amount of Indians on the internet through various football forums,and through my fiancée who has Indians friends in Canada.I've never felt any anti-Pakistan feelings from their side TBH.Not even during the buildup to the semifinal where emotions ran high.There was the good light hearted banter,but that's it.
    Lots of mistakes in the last post that might make you scratch your head

    I meant "there's the expectation from both sides of the border.It sucks to be on the wrong side when the match ends.I'm still proud of how Pakistan performed,and no how bitter i may be,India were the better team on the day.TBH i think you guys will beat Srilanka too.Don't see them have the same energy and bite that India do"
    Hey Thanks

    Yeah it does suck.Obviously the fact we lost to India in a WC semi makes it more painful.A loss against any other team would not have been so depressing.You're right about us having no control over it,but there's the expectation from both side of the border.It sucks to be on the wrong side when the match things.I'm still proud of how Pakistan performed,and no how bitter i may be,India were the better team on the day.TBH i think you guys will beat Srilanka too.Don't see them have the same energy and bite that India too.

    P.S.I always thought you were Australian.Maybe it's the Mcgrath avatar.
    Thanks bro :) today they started some shock treatment along with the medications. I will be on a 2 week leave. At least now I will enjoy the world cup ;)
    I hope for Australia's sake he does turn it around. I feel he has too much quality not to. Up till around 06 I thought of Tendulkar as better, then Ponting went on a crazy run and I would argue on the boards here that Ricky had then taken the lead. The irony is that the same arguments now to show that Tendulkar is ahead of Ponting (average, 100s, etc) were the same arguments I brought back then showing just how well Ponting was doing (he was averaging almost 60 FFS) and people STILL wouldn't give him the credit he deserves. The reality is that I doubt he will ever get a fair shake because a) there are too many interests involved in making Tendulkar look good and b) Australians have had too many great cricketers to fuss over about Ponting to give him the kind of attention that commands he be considered above Tendulkar (if he does get back to the top). People don't like to admit it, but the media do play a large part in swaying opinion - even amongst discerning fans.
    Hey mate,

    Was wondering if you could spare a few seconds to complete my survey. Would be much appreciated.
