Cricket in Pakistan

Cricket is a widely played sport in Pakistan. Indeed hockey is stated as the national sport but the position acquired by cricket is not gained by this national sport.
The year 1996 is a benchmark in the cricketing history of Pakistan. In that year Pakistan hosted the mega event Cricket World cup.
With respect to this sport, a lot of development has been done. Numerous cricket academies for youngsters have been established as a result of this development. Even the Undergraduate colleges grant admissions on the basis of sports, and yet cricket has the largest proportion.
Due to an atrocity that took place in the year 2009, in Gaddafi Stadium Lahore, the cricket hosting was taken away from Pakistan. It's undeniable that the archrival of our country ploted that massacre.
Since then the cricketing authorities of the country had tried to regain the cricket hosting rights.
Military had taken strong steps to curb terrorism in the country. Zarb-e-Adab is one of the bright examples of neutralizing the enemies of the country. But still the dirty minds of the foes of Pakistan pave their way to plot evil.
Pakistanis are not frightened of the develish approach of their enemies. We are strong enough to crush them. But we are Muslim, the followers of Islam, the flag bearers of peace and the emblem of humanity. We'd let our enemies be our friends rather than bereaving their lives.
The final of the ongoing PSL (#HBLPSL) is planned to be played in Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. As soon as the plan was shared, the archrival of Pakistan plotted a series of terrorist attacks in the country. A number of innocent Pakistanis lost their lives in Lahore, a few more died in Sehwan Sharif, but this won't halt the progress of Pakistan.
The Final of PSL will be Inshallah played in Pakistan.

Syndrome of Fear

Last night I was roaming around a park, somewhere in Allama Iqbal Town, Lahore. There I met this ferocious fella, sitting in dark, wearing a black collar. I went and stood behind it, at some distance. When it saw me, it began to growl at me. When I went a bit closer, it started to bark at me. It wasn't the first time that a dog had barked at me but it was really the first time that a dog whom I was luring to play, barked. It could be some sort of a fear in it; someone might have kicked it, someone could have mistakenly hit it while riding a bike or something else. This fear is not just a part of animals, but it even incorporate the mankind.
Well, I tried to calm it down but I couldn't. So, I thought that I better leave.
