Pakistan cricket’s barbershop

“There are three things that Black people need to tell the truth about. Number one: Rodney King should’ve gotten his ass beat for being drunk in a Honda a white part of Los Angeles. Number two: O.J. did it! And number three: Rosa Parks didn’t do nuthin’ but sit her Black ass down!”

That is what Eddie says in Barbershop.

In real life, the whole Pakistani cricket set up seems to be a bit like Eddie.

Unable to see that the dude left because some one said Ima gunna kill you and yours.

I have no idea whether I would have run like Haider did, but I certainly wouldn’t have told Ijazz Butt. And what is the point of taking it to the players.

Sure, he could have told the ICC, but getting the fuck out of there also did the job, you can always contact the ICC when you are well away from some dude trying to kill you.

Perhaps some ex and current players believe his mistake was not just taking the cash and doing what they wanted.

Eddie probably would have thought that.

Abdul Razzaq said, “I don’t think he did the right thing. He made a big mistake. If he had any issues he should have told the senior players or the management.”

The Pakistan’s sports minister, Ijaz Hussain Jakhrani, took time out from ignoring how bad a job Butt is doing to say; “If he is such a weak and scared person he should not have played cricket in the first place, particularly not for the national team.”

Afridi had a bit of, “I just don’t understand what he (Haider) is trying to do. He has behaved very childishly. He has behaved just like Yasir Hameed had done in England. What is he trying to achieve?”

It worries me when Hameed and Haider are the stupid ones.

Surely the bigger problem is that when players talk up, the Pakistani cricket community takes the piss out of them. Why bother saying anything at all?

So if Eddie from barbershop was a Pakistani cricket fan, I think he’d say this;

“There are three things Pakistani cricket fans need to understand. Number one: Salim Malik had to take the blame so our team wouldn’t lose its best players. Number two: Spot fixing aint shit. Number Three: Haider didn’t do a goddamn thing other than fucken leavin’.”
