The Game of Nobles

The cricket world is going to lose a thrill, sensation and many shining stars in its glamorous skies. There are many reasons behind this loss. Some are imaginary and some are somewhat real. Those which can be said as real are also not due to the inefficiency of the teams or players but due to the cricket and political administration. The imaginary threats of terrorist activities are the major cause of this eclipse.
There are many evidences that certain nations clamored terrorism to gain some political advantage or as a psychological trick to subdue the opposite teams. Afterwards many other cricket teams made it a lame excuse and in this way a new trend came into vogue. The team that did not want to visit a certain country due to some other more lucrative engagements recorded his apprehensions about terrorist attacks and tried to evade the matches.
This has become a catchy slogan for the western teams. They often refuse to play in Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka. If ICC decides to send them to the more rewarding places as far as monetary benefits are concerned they would become ready to play in Iraq or Israel. The dichotomy of the cricketing world about this syndrome of terrorism is worth mentioning. The most powerful nations of the world are not devoid of terrorism then why the states of Pakistan Srilanka and India are made the target of this heinous phenomenon? The political situation in the all the cricketing countries is not the same.
Tamil issue in Srilanka and host of issues in India are disturbing the whole fabric of society but there is no threat of any terrorism! Australia and New Zealand are the two states that are situated on the brink of the world but they cannot guarantee that there is no terrorism in these states. Surely not, terrorism is a global threat and the most powerful nations of the world are not exceptions. Those who do not want to play cricket in Asia are just trying to subdue the Asian cricket as well as Asian nations.
They have their own vested interests. When their ICC plans visit of any western nation of the Asian countries the different teams behave differently over this decision. If it is India Sri Lanka or Bangladesh they are never fearful of ant threat due to politics in spite of the fact that this territory is too a prey to the same threat of terrorism.
Only the Pakistani territory is not acceptable to any of the western nations. There is always politics involved in this decline. If the ICC wants to revive cricket and if it wants to enhance supporting activities it should become impartial and decide on the merit as well as the situation on the ground. Otherwise the international body only would be responsible for the downfall of this million dollars game and a great fun.

I have watched many games of cricket in my home town in the U.K. The slow handclap, the long walk back to the pavillion, bring fond memories. Your page gives me an awareness of the far reaching penalties of this game. Thank you. A very interesting page.

Nice article to share, but now a days I don't watch cricket, as it becomes more business than sports....
