HEADLINE: WIPA boss hails Caribbean side?s role in Pakistan resurgence

KARACHI, Pakistan (CMC) – West Indies Players Association (WIPA) president, Wavell Hinds, says he is proud of the role West Indies cricket has played in returning international cricket to Pakistan.

The Caribbean side’s three-match Twenty20 International series which wrapped up here Tuesday was the first visit by a major Test-playing nation in nine years, following the terrorists attack on a Sri Lankan team in 2009.

Since then, Pakistan played their home series in United Arab Emirates.
“It feels good to be playing a role in bringing cricket back in Pakistan,” said Hinds, who along with director of cricket Jimmy Adams travelled for the historic series.

“The people of Pakistan deserve to see their national players, their stars playing in front of them and of course to see the stars of West Indies come over and play in Pakistan.
“For the game of cricket to grow and for the world cricket to take its rightful place in the world of sports then playing cricket in Pakistan is one step towards achieving that.”
The tour was hastily arranged and was without several of the leading T20 stars but the three matches saw capacity crowds pack the National Stadium.

Why don't Hinds address the reason why International cricket was not being played in Pakatan for the last 9 years

Does he know what happened to the Lankan cricket bus in Pakistan 9 years ago?

Does he believe other international sides will line up to now go to Pakistan after the hastily arranged and then farcical display in 3 match 3 day T20 series..

You just can't argue with success, to paraphrase Ronald Reagan on the occasion of Jessie Jackson's negotiated release of Lt. Robert Goodman from Middle East captivity.

In reply to Drapsey... success? Kindly elaborate.

West Indies Players Association (WIPA) president, Wavell Hinds, says he is proud of the role West Indies cricket has played in returning international cricket to Pakistan.

They got a cutarse of magnanimous proportion ... why does Hinds not address that as the head of the players' union? The last I checked this is a cricket team and not some ambassadorial representative of the United Nations.....

When poor, hungry, unemployed, people turn to various methods including begging and prostitution.
West Indies name and legacy was prostituted by a third string team rapidly put together by some highly motivated pimp like officials, with the attraction being money.
That's all there was to it.

Pakistan is desperate and like Afridi said, will do anything for the country to win.

WI was the packoo.

Not only was WI prostituted or pimped out, they got a good, sound public whipping worse than a step chile.

So, who were the 30,000 plus spectators reported for the the first match, Indians?

This. Seems quite out of place for Wavell of all people to praise what effectively was a sacrificial lamb.

 
Khaga 2018-04-05 14:42:22 

In reply to Tryangle

Wavell brings a wealth of sacrificial experience to the table..

 
natty_forever 2018-04-05 15:32:15 

In reply to Khaga... whey RomanT, is he reminding us of Wavell running away and leaving Black. Just like how he "run away" on the players.

 
Drapsey 2018-04-05 15:54:08 


You guys appear disappointed.

Disappointed that there was not a single reported incident.

For the record, I'm disappointed too, but only in the fact that we had to field a near 'C' team due to the unavailability of the chickens.

The thought that you expected to see a reported incident itself shows that this was just BS.. Why did Gayle and others opt out? Ask yourself and then you will know why this was a farce. lol

 
camos 2018-04-05 16:02:18 

was Hinds part of the tour because he has experience running away from trouble.
lol

Maybe they fall within the chicken categorization (from my previous post).

They should have sent your @$$ up there cool

I'd be fine.

Maybe they should've sent you.

The best players were preparing for the IPL and didn't want to risk being injured.

of course, you would be. razz and the very thought you have about what the lunatics could do with me suggests it is not safe.

I only said that because you appear to have an agenda. Peace!

Blame that on the chickens (including the rich ones), not on Wavell who actually showed up to be counted.

And I don't even like a bone in that Wavell character.

DID YOU EXPECT A DIFFERENT RESPONSE ?

I certainly did not . WIPA has become
an appendage of the Worst International Cricket Board in the
Commonwealth , aka the WICBC/CWI .

YOU ARE PROUD THAT PAKISTAN WHITEWASH THE WEST INDIES?!!! Have you no shame? Are you saying that the West Indies is now the tum tum of other cricket teams and their purpose is just to be useed as target pracice? What kind president are you? I've said it before, and I'm going to say it again, this whole organizattion called Windies/Windbag Cricket lacks intelligence from top to bottom. And this expression of pride at being so totally destroyed and humiliated by Pakistan is proof that what I've said is correct! West Indies cricket is done!

 
Brumar74 2018-04-05 21:57:11 

West Indies Cricket has now been reduced to our team being ambassadors.
We do not need to compete, or have a chance to show the ability of our best players?
We just need to assemble enough players who will accept $25k to go on a four day excursion to demonstrate to the cricket world that Pakistan is a safe place to play cricket?
This is farcical. What has been the value to West Indies Cricket?
Three matches, three slaughters ?
Have we no pride left?
Will our President explain the value , not $$$$$$$$$ to our young cricketers?
