پاکستان کرکٹ میں جگہ نہ ملنے پر سپاٹ فکسنگ میں سزا یافتہ پاکستان فاسٹ بولر محمد آصف کس ملک میں راہیں تلاش شروع کر دیں

Mohammad Asif the Pakistani fast bowler has moved to United States of America. The pace bowler is there for playing league cricket. There was a time when cricket was an alien sports in the US but not anymore. The ICC has done some remarkable work there as well. The ICC head Dave Richardson made several visits to US and then ICC started cricket infrastructure there as well. There was a lot of work done there just to make sure the Americans look into this sports as well. There was a start studded t20 series played in the US some years back in which there were a lot of retired cricketers who showed their presence. The idea behind this series was to educate the American people about the game cricket. Wasim Akram, Shoaib Akhtar, Waqar Younis, Sachin Tendulkar, Rickey Ponting and many other big names of the game were present in that series.

Asif and other major names of the games should travel more and more to US for cricket. This will help cricket establish more and more in this part of the world. Cricket at this moment is still not that much of a renowned game in the US. People like other sports. Americans go for football, rugby, baseball and basketball. They are the games which have a huge fan following in the US and hence for cricket you have to work a lot in the US to make sure this game builds an audience there as well. Asif in his interview said that he has seen cricket in California and other parts of the US. This is very encouraging. The Pakistani community is present here in a good number and they have a love for this game. Asif said that the leagues played here will benefit the game for sure.

Asif himself feels that there should be more cricket here. The potential is there and only one has to unearth this by making sure that more and more cricket is played in this part of the world and people tend to get the idea of this game and become the fans. Asif also spoke a few words about the Pakistan England series. He said that Pakistan should know that in England the conditions and pitches will not suit them at all. They have to adjust to the moving ball which has been a major problem for the Asian side in England. This is a crucial time for Pakistan because May suits the English team a lot and hence they will be the favorites for the series. Pakistan will be facing challenges there and he hoped that Pakistan makes a strong performance in the England series.
