Pakistan cricket is facing problems in 2010. what are the details?




  1. Zulqarnain Haider's decision to retire from international cricket after claiming he received death threats is only the latest of a number of problems to trouble Pakistan cricket in 2010. Pakistan's tour of Australia last winter, which began in December 2009, was a disaster for the tourists. After drawing their warm-up game with Tasmania, they lost every single competitive game during their stay down under. Pakistan's Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi, never a stranger to controversy, was then handed a suspension by the International Cricket Council for an unusual offence. After battling back well to win the second Test against Australia and level the series at 1-1, Pakistan then faced England in four Tests. Fielding an inexperienced batting line-up, the tourists were cruelly exposed. Dismissed for 182 and 80 at Trent Bridge as England won the first Test by 354 runs, they were then rolled over for 72 in the first innings of the second Test at Edgbaston as England romped to a nine-wicket victory. As Saturday night turned into Sunday morning, reports then surfaced that would rock the world of cricket, with the News of the World alleging that three Pakistan players had been involved in spot-fixing during the Test.
