Pakistan should focus on domestic cricket

Al Jazeera has an insightful article on how lack of international cricket can change the social fabric of Pakistan.

"If Pakistan cricket is finished, Pakistan grounds will be finished, Pakistan players will be finished," the boy said.

"There'll be no cricket left. So youngsters instead of playing could fall into criminal behaviour."

Leaving aside this doomsday prognosis, the article also illustrates how South Africa kept its cricket alive during the apartheid sanctions by strengthening their domestic game circuit.

Given that Pakistan has always had a weak domestic cricket system and legends such as Imran had disdain for it, I wonder whether PCB can come out of its limitations and make it strong.

Do you believe that focus on their domestic cricket will revive international cricket in Pakistan?

if only morons sitting at pcb comes out of denial mode...and start doing something rather than issuing statement which makes them and pak cricket butt of joke...pak cricket can still go places...

i dont think strenghthening domestic cricket will do anything for Pakistan's international cricket - that can only be helped by ridding the land of those extremists.
