It is good to see the local cricket scene in Karachi abuzz with activity. First, a local millionaire held a league tournament with former Test cricketer Rashid Latif acting as organizer and (former) City Nazim Mustafa Kamal helping out. Then, the National Twenty-Twenty Championship was held here under supervision of the PCB. The future of cricket might look shaky in Pakistan right now but such domestic events would help us change the game for the better. Karachi being the most populous city of Pakistan, it is awfully difficult to manage such events here, especially in view of the constant terrorist threat. It goes to the credit of the Karachi City government and Rashid Latif that they have managed these events with success. I would like to ask the various city governments and former Test cricketers of Rawalpindi, Lahore, Quetta and Peshawar to learn a lesson from City government Karachi and Rashid Latif and do something about organizing local cricket events in these cities. There is not much we can do about lack of international cricket for Pakistan but something can still be done to make the spectators at home enjoy cricket of the other kind. -ZAHID RASHID, Rawalpindi, March 1.
