People who do not respect their country are never successful. I saw the start of the India and Pakistan cricket match on Sep 30; when they played the Indian national anthem the Indian team was singing along with the tune. Unfortunately, no one from our team was paying attention when our national anthem was being played; they were either chewing gum or mum. Only Hafeez and Akmal appeared to be singing the national anthem. It is a shame how we behave in public and we keep heaping disgrace on our heads. These players who represent Pakistan do not understand that the world judges us by their actions. I hope that our ‘National Team’ will be more patriotic in future.
