Controversially Yours: An Autobiography

But no one had the patience for Shoaib If you ask me, Pakistan has everything but qadar, the ability to value what we have. Allah has given us both a gift and a curse and the curse is that we will never be valued by our own, whether in politics or sports. Benazir Bhutto was shot dead-whoever wants to work for the good of the nation is bound to be finished Younis Khan won us the T20 World Cup in and was repaid by being forced to face inquiries Even Imran Khan He was beaten up by politically motivated rogue elements in Punjab University in Can you imagine something like that happening just across our border, a mere minute drive from where he was so heartlessly treated?

Can anyone imagine this happening to Tendulkar in India?

Is it possible that Tendulkar or Dravid have not made mistakes? They are protected because they are national treasures in a country that has invested pride in them. Shah Rukh Khan "It was not the board alone that ruined Pakistani cricket, it was the team too". I nzamam, at one point, did manage to keep the team united. He and I didn't get along but that didn't affect the team-we did well under him for a while.

However, a strange thing happened in the dressing room just about then. It is my opinion that the namaz is the duty of every Muslim. Every Muslim knows this, and he also knows that if he doesn't do the namaz, he will be held responsible in the court of the ultimate judge, Allah. To force grown-ups, as though they were children, to do the namaz or zikr seems a bit strange to me.

The problem begins when someone feels that now he has got on to the right path, he must make everybody else do what he does. I think that's missing the point; it's also a form of arrogance. If you can find the right path and correct yourself, so can the other man. If you impose your will, Allah's benevolence and kindness are ignored. But some people thought that this was the way to take the team forward. Roza, namaz, tabliq were to be compulsory team events. Guys were taken to task if they wished to pray in the solitude of their room.

Threats were used; if you don't pray with the team, you will be thrown out. I can guarantee that ten of those praying with the team were doing so because they were scared of being thrown out. I mean, to go around telling all of us that if you recite the namaz with the group, you will be selected and will be in our good books is the strangest thing.

Namaz sadda zameer hai-namaz is our conscience-but Islam has also given us instructions on when and how to pray. Islam da adda hissa pakeezgi hai. When the whole team got together for namaz, the bathroom floor would become wet and filthy, with tissues strewn all over-it was disgusting. Islam is all about purity, cleanliness We began praying on airplanes, if you please, although it is absolutely clear that if you are travelling, you can be excused for namaz. And the toilets-oh my God!

Once, the team made the water flow out into the aisle and there were complaints all around; they stopped us from praying on that flight. It wasn't safe either. I was happy when Younis Khan became captain because he is a great team player, but he wasn't aggressive enough with the management. At long last we had a good man, a great teammate and a good cricketer at the helm and we won the T20 World Cup.

Look what happened to him. The chairman didn't like him and he got dropped, faced inquiries and struggled to find a place in the team. Later in , we won the series against Australia so they said we won, we don't need him. How sad is that? Talent and experience were made to sit outside and he had to apologise for nothing, just to appease the egos of the board members, before he was allowed to play again.

Unfortunately, our seniors were the most corrupt people I have known in my whole life. Barring a few like Rashid Latif and Moin Kahn, the rest indulged in activities that certainly did not help the game, yet most of them were let off with fines.

The fact is I can't point to any one player and say, this man steadied our team-issne Pakistan cricket ko sambhala. Pakistan cricket ki jo tabahi hai, voh Pakistan team ne khud ki. Always leaking our disagreements to the media, devising devious schemes to throw this one or that one out, infighting, not allowing young talent to grow and thrive So it was not the board alone that ruined Pakistani cricket, it was the team itself. Players often took their issues to the press.

Some, mind you, did it to sell a story and make some money As a consequence, relationships within the dressing room broke down. Moin Khan stepped down from vice-captaincy.

Book Review: Controversially Yours

He was banned from entering the dressing room and even the ground. I left for India again for the negotiations and was invited to Shah Rukh's house for discussions. During our meeting, I got the feeling that it was Sourav Ganguly and not Shah Rukh who wanted me on the team. Shah Rukh wasn't sure about me, but Ganguly knew the kind of bowler I was. Then I met Lalit Modi, who had actively pursued me to join the ipl; he promised the heaven and earth if I did.

But when the bidding took place, I was disappointed. Subhash Chandra and Himanshu Mody, who used to be a part of the icl meetings, rang me to say that I should let them know my terms; they were very keen that I join them. I was trying to be practical and think about my future for a change, and I knew I needed to make the right decision. I thought I might have to bow out of playing for my country, so I asked the ICL for an amount that would compensate for that and a bit more, and they were ready to give me what I wanted.

Our seniors set the example of going out, having a good time-girls were always coming and going out of their rooms. This was the prevailing culture in the Pakistan team. This is what we saw and learned. But when one of the seniors became our coach, he preached what he never practised in his own time. I know people who were drunk and came out to play.

This is a fact. And now they call me undisciplined-it's unbelievable. I wish now that I had never listened to Javed Miandad. I should have gone back home, trained, and then gone to England for the county season My grouse is with my own board. If a batsman gets out of form, he is given some time to regain it. If a bowler bowls poorly, he too is given a chance to find his rhythm.

After all, no one can play brilliantly all the time. But no one had the patience for Shoaib If you ask me, Pakistan has everything but qadar, the ability to value what we have. Allah has given us both a gift and a curse and the curse is that we will never be valued by our own, whether in politics or sports.
