Let me Bleed

First Blog post of the year… something i wrote in 2015 🙂

Let me Bleed

Let me bleed
Lie to me
Twist the words, make them timeless
When the sun goes down and stars shimmer…
that soft silver glint in the eye
Pray
Pray that the clouds unleash
Sky paints a black coat to its soul
Move the shade away
Let the storm petrify
Warmth still lurks on the hammer’s head
Step away
Don’t tend to my wounds
Because sometimes
You bleed just to know you’re alive

Who rules the world

cricket worldcup 2015So the Cricket worldcup 2015 is upon us, the pinnacle of our obsessive cricketing fascinations, the once in a lifetime (if you are Australian you can add it twice or thrice… or if you are that old fourice) sporting accomplishment where if your team wins your heart goes merry go round for four years.

Which brings us to my team Pakistan, The Green shirts, the cornered tigers, the most un-predictable side in any tournament. One which on its day can pulverize the strongest sides like Walter White on Red Bull and when its having a bad day can make Bangladesh team look like Tiger Woods of cricket. Winners of 1992, the magic of Imran and that team which nourished an entire generation of cricketing enthusiasts across the nation.

The Joys of Street Cricket

street cricketFor cricket The 90’s is described as the decade in which the reign of West Indies as the cricket power house ended. Among the teams that emerged as strong performers Australia and Pakistan come at top of the list. But if we look closely at the overall performance and swagger the decade can truly be called as the decade of Pakistan. This was the decade that brought Pakistan its first world cup win, established Pakistan as a Fast bowling powerhouse and saw some of the most remarkable innings played by its batsmen. As a kid growing up in the 90’s nothing gave me more pleasure then seeing Wasim Akram’s unplayable deliveries making the batsmen dance Waqar Younis’s in swinging Yorkers rattling the stumps or Shoaib Akhtar terrorizing the batsmen with his devilish speed. And all those great fast ballers credited street cricket in developing them at the early age especially in the creation of the art of reverse swing. (more…)
