I feel little difference between the present rulers of Pakistan and our national cricket team currently touring Australia; both are in search of humiliation. I wonder why the team manager does not instruct his team to lick their fingers clean after having applied butter to their bread at breakfast? Their buttery fingers prevent them from holding catches in the field. Look at the double century scored by the Australian captain. If his catch had been held, he was out for a duck. I have no complaints to make about the batting quality of our batsmen, though. When you pray all night, how can you concentrate on the game next morning? Perhaps what they need even more than technique or practice is divine help. The PCB should send in some maulvis to Australia to pray for our team whenever our players go out to bat. -IMTIAZ AHMAD KARDAR, Sahiwal, January 16.
