The most volatile teams of the cricket world are the “royal” teams of pakistan and India.It is a strange coincidence that both the teams belong to asia.
The above mentioned teams have become so unpredictable that bookies have abjured their gambling practices over these teams.Quite in the second match after winning the world title the teams will be defaeated by the same team that was destroyed in the title event.
Some times it so happens that there seems no chance of qualifying the first roun of the tournament but the “royal teams”not only reach the final but also win it.These are the winner of the world cup with miraclous retun back.At other times these are being defeated by the inexperienced and novices of Ireland and Bangladesh.If it had happened one or two times we could have concluded that it is a chance and cricket is by chance.
But when it started happening every time that our royal teams showed the same results in all events we were obliged to name them THE ROYAL AND UNPREDICTABLE TEAMS OF THE WORLD.
Why is this always happenning?
What are the reasons behind this fluctuating performance?
Are the cricket boards responsible for this dilemma,?
Are the coaches the cause of this fall?
Or the cricketers themselves are to blame?
Let us try to understand the psychology of these royal teams.
India was a member of the cricket club before partition aftarwards Pakistan entered the arena.
Pakistan got test match status at Lord,s Cricket Ground on July 28,1952 and played its first game at Dehli In october 1952. Indian and Pakistani teams are measured as a strong but capricious teams.These are always impulsive and unpredictable.Although their players are legends and big guns in the field of cricket yet the teams are not always in the same line.
They have always great players like legends of sarkar shastri miandad,imran khan wasim waqar,bedi,manindar,etc etc.

The 1986 victory at Sharja, a last-ball victory for Pakistan against India, with Javed Miandad,s memorial sixer. 1992 World Cup victory is remembered for the comeback of this royal team .
The biggest upsets in World Cup2007 history were also from Pakistan when it was knocked out of the competition by Ireland , who were playing in their first tournament
On the other hand indian team could not qualify for the second round of T20 world cup 2009.
These are mere examples otherwise the history of these teams is replete with this kind of abnormal performance.
WHAT IS ON THE BACK OF THIS DILEMMA?
Adhocism is the main reason behind the scence.There are no permanent policies as well officials who could run the affairs.THE FOREGN COACHES ARE THERE TO GRAB MONEY.the locals arte not relied and so there is no permanent structure in real sense.it is one of the biggest problems of our teams.
2=BOARDS OF CRICKET
The governing bodies of cricket are the main cause of this behaviour.Often the chair of the head of the board is awarded as a bribe to the person who is totally unaware of the alphabet of the cricket.
A high ranking civil officer or a politician is made the head of the boards. It is more true as far as pakstan is concerned.The heads of the boards have only remuneration in mind and they grab it with both hands.
Our players are themselves a cause of this dilemma.They make lobbies of their own to survive in the team or get captaincy.The talented players fail to get the favour of the boards.
The authority is often by passed by the powerful players. are either ousted or dumpped to the background.
4=Gambling AND MATCH FIXING
There are a lot of players of repute who have been involved in the gamling .Many players of high talent have been doing this kind of job and have been dropped from the national squad.
5=No planning and proper management
Planning is the key to success but unfortunately our board does not do so.It works like a postman.Its planning ends on declaring the names and schedule of the cricket.
6-No talent hunting
Our local cricket assications are not patronised by the PCB and are devoid of proper councel and guidence along with resources.
7=ATTITUDE OF THE INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS
Player who get some fame are perverted by the popularity.They often involve themselves in merry making .Shoaib A khtar and many others are seen in the dance clubs cat walk shows and casinos .They do not follow the code of ethics .They spend nights at such places and can not give good performance the next day .
8=ADDITION TO PROHIBITED DRUGS
A lot of players are used to the prohibited drugs and fasil in the dope test. They have to face a ban and in this way bring disfame to the team country and cricket.
The PCB tries to hide its inefficiency by hiring the foreign coaches and this proves fatal to the pakistani cricket.
Ball tempring is a permanent blame on the Pakistani team.A lot of controversies have been created through this act.
Only talent does not make difference
Talented players are a great asset of a team but only talent is not enough to become a star.discipline is the driving force of talent and this is wanting in pakistani cricket . Inadequate discipline had made them a team which could not play exciting and inspirational cricket .They performs like giants one day and then play like pigmies on the other day.Only talent is not enough.A permanent cricketing behaviour is needed to touch the hieghts of glory of fame and fortune.
