Another twist To The Shoaib Episode!!!

Yesterday as all of you people read the post titled "Never Ending Shoaib Akthar Episode " was written taking into account the achievements of the great Pakistan thrower-Shoaib Akthar.The man was offered a ban of 5 years owing to misconduct by him to the PCB as well as his team mates.Well the post was written taking into account his great escapes which have been his achievements.If the post is to be believed to be serious,it meant that Shoaib deserved to be treated like that.

But,when I switched on the TV and turned my channel to some sports freak,I was just amazed to hear that the man was even banned to play in the multi million dollar Indian Premier League.Isn't that completely ridiculous?Well,I guess the abbreviation-IPL has been mistaken to be International Premier League rather than Indian Premier League.

When all these private cricket bodies make a mess of it whenever a contracted player fails to keep up his commitments with the board concerned,I wonder who gave the IPL chief excecutive Lalit Modi the right to play with someone's feelings as it has done with that of Shoaib Akthar.

With new twists and turns in Shoaib's episode making the news regularly,I feel the next blow to Shoaib might be to deny him even the right to live.So,lets wait and watch.Hope to see you tomorrow-PCB.Bye for now!!!

Shoaib could have been the history-maker but alas, he preferred to stay history-sheeter. Anyway, nice piece.

Do visit my blog Doosra ( , which sports a Shoaib-obsessed look these days with 3 successive pieces on the Rawalpindi Express. There is also a light-hearted take on how India could have saved the Motera Test.

And if link exchange interests you, plz make a comment there and we can be in each other's blogroll. Howzzat!
