    Was he disrespected? If not, what is his problem? Anyways, it's his choice. But does give us a fair idea of his ego.

    There must be something wrong in the food that is prepared or the water that is offered at the PCB headquarters

    Whoever goes through the PCB facilities (whether player, coach or administration) just loses their minds. I have never seen anyone go through our cricket system and emerge a better person or professional. Totally normal and sedate people end up getting in all sorts of trouble and performing mindless acts after being affiliated with Pakistan cricket.

    Honestly where else in the world is there such a choice collection of 'superstars'?

    I mean just look at it. Guys like Wasim Akram, Moin Khan, Rashid Latif, Aamir Sohail, perhaps Shoaib Malik etc are considered among the 'sane' voices. And ALL of them have had incidents and stories which would be a death knell in most other countries.

    It really is baffling and something I have never figured out.

    During the tournament him and Mohsin Khan revealed their disgust of the appointment of Mickey Arthur since he's a non-Pakistani and they went on to say even in the middle of the tournament he should be sacked.

    Our ex cricketers are incredible. Most other retired athletes around the world look for ways to stay involved and give back to their teams and their countries. Our retired cricketers want statues built in their honor and entire country to grovel at their feet. Useless

    Couldn't agree more. I believe there was bitterness too associated with this current crop winning a "global" trophy (not exactly the WC but comes close) which takes the limelight of ex-cricketers and their achievements, or lack of.

    Looks like pak cricket is only about the former players, pcb management and media. Current players who actually play the game are in less light than the management and former players... these former players did nothing I mean absolutely nothing while in management and bagged hefty salaries while in pcb and now wants a red carpet welcome.

    ^^ The answer is in your question.

    The folks were never great people or exhibited professionalism in the first place. They were just good cricketers who could win matches for their country and hence had employment with the PCB.

    Imran Khan might be an exception due to his education and political career but even he he has said some stupid stuff over the years i.e. foreign PSL players being pateechar

    I don't understand this argument either. Wasim, Waqar, Moin, Miandad, IK, Aamer Sohail etc. were all part of the 1992 WC winning team whilst YK, Razzaq, Kammy etc. won the 2009 World T20.

    What do they have to complain about? Everyone knows their accomplishments and identifies them as legends yet they still complain and remain bitter.

    The only person who I can understand (but not agree with) being bitter is MoYo due to him being a scapegoat for Sydney 2010 and being sacked from the team unceremoniously in 2010. He deserved better although he made some made bad choices himself e.g. conspiring against Malik, joining ICL etc.

    He is one of those former cricketers always moaning about something. Seems he, Mohsin Khan, Amir Sohail and Mo yousaf amongst others want the PCB to beg them all the time. After their Cricketing career is over these guy's have no plan B. They don't know what to do with their lives afterwards other then pick fights with the PCB or each other.
