New Zealand security concerns were genuine - Pakistan beat them by 5 Wickets

Recently New Zealand cricket team was in Pakistan after carrying out an elaborate security check. Yet just one hour before their first match they abandoned the tour on security concerns. That was a bad thing to do - yet they were right for Pakistan "beat them by 5 wickets" in their first match at Sharjah last night as part of the ongoing T20 World Cup Cricket tournament.

New Zealand batted first and was demolished for paltry 134 runs in 20 overs. Haris Rauf was the most successful bowler who sent for batters back to Pavilion. Coming to bat, Pakistan did have some hiccups, but attained the target in 18.4 overs and won the match by five wickets. It was Asif Ali (27* off 12 balls) and Shoaib Malik (26* off 20) who really clinched the victory from hands of New Zealanders. 






Following New Zealand's abandonment of Pakistan tour, England also followed suit and cancelled their tour to Pakistan, something for which they were much criticized by world class cricketers. Now in next part of the tournament, it leaves to be seen how the two would meet each other.

Pakistan asks world to be "Realistic" about Taliban


Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mahmud Qureshi has asked the global community to be realistic about the Afghan Taliban and show patience and give time to them to settle down to take stock of the war torn country.

He was of the opinion that the world is rather too impatient to expect much more in just two over a month since withdrawal of NATO forces, leaving behind a shattered and tattered economy and basic infrastructure..





In an interview with the Associated Press, Qureshi asked the world to "Be realistic. Show patience. Engage. And above all, do not isolate. Those are the pillars of an approach emerging in Pakistan to deal with a fledgling Taliban government that is once again running Afghanistan next door.".

Misconceptions about Afghan Crisis by the West

The seemingly endless war by NATO to beat Talibans  has ended  with hurried withdrawal of US and allied troops from Afghanistan. The Taliban now control almost the entire Afghanistan and have even announced their interim government. But despite the victory of Taliban, the West has unleashed a massive media campaign about future of Afghanistan and casting doubts over Taliban's ability to handle the affairs. 

Ahmad M Siddiqi of Al Jazeerah has highlighted four misconceptions of the West about Taliban. All of these seemingly look rather premature and a move to downplay the Taliban who contested the NATO troops for tow decades and finally made them run.





Here are the four misconceptions that West is seemingly worried about as per Siddiqi:
  • Al Qadea coming back?
  • Taliban are fragmented
  • The Taliban triumphed due to foreign support
  • The US withdrawal too soon.
Please read the full report for details of these misconceptions
