    PPCL Academy | PPCL 2020

    Welcome, folks. As part of our services to the young and aspiring talent of the country, senior players such as mysef, @Watsupdoc, Wasim Akram, Ijaz Ahmed, and Salman Butt will regularly be conducting lectures here. We will also be inviting esteemed guests from time to time, ranging from @Manager101 to @Square Drive, to give lectures.

    Our first scholarship cohort consists of @Manager102, @Batsman e Azam, and @Bhaag Viru Bhaag. The academy is also the official sponsor of the Lightning Hawks this season, as well as unofficial sponsor for all the other clubs. We are open to registrations now.

    Our educators including myself will do our best to consistently bring you high-quality, tailored content. @Watsupdoc perhaps you have a few words for the opening ceremony?

    Watsupdoc speaking to the media during the opening ceremony.

    "First of all it's an honor to be a part of this elite panel of lecturers. Would like to thank the academy for giving me this opportunity as well as for officially sponsoring our team Lightning Hawks."

    "To the budding youngsters, my message is to enjoy the journey here and learn from the best and most experienced if you want to have a successful career and a life full of glitz that you have always dreamed of."

    "It will certainly be hard work, but if you are committed to success than we can guarantee you that you will have all the support from us and you will have a life that others can only dream of."

    "I am sure @Thunderbolt14 can testify to what I am saying as he was the newbie last season and look at where he is now. His success is unparalleled at such a young stage of his career."

    "So thank you and look forward to learning all the tricks on how to be successful in PPCL and to live a life of glitz and luxury!"

    "Over to you mate @Thunderbolt14 - what do you have to say to these budding cricketer?"

    First of all, I would like to thank the person who deserves the biggest credit in bringing me where I am today and he is none other than the great, my idol Mazhar Majeed known best for his services in the Great War of 2010 against the English. His sidekick Salman Butt is our hero as well. I and this academy will forever be indebted to their services as a role model for all the boys like me who need a successful role model.

    PPCL teams if you need Mazhar Majeed, he can't be here sadly but I will not let you feel his absence.

    Also as a tribute to him I am attaching a historic image of Mard-e-Momin, Mard-e-Haq Misbah-ul-Haq paying tribute to the great Mazhar Majeed at Lord's.

    Here are a few tips from the first lecture of Mr. Salman Butt .

    1) Always accept gifts if you one-day want to be successful like Watsupdoc and @Thunderbolt14 and one day be surrounded by pretty faces at your own private Island

    2) Strictly follow the script and stick to the routine that will make you best in the business and you have perfect role models in @Manager101 and @Square Drive for that.

    3) This one is very important and especially for the bowlers. If you want to be successful and lead a life of glitz and glamour, always push your limits and go beyond!

    All of us at the academy are looking forward to you applying these basic tips during the upcoming season.

    Misbah United under the leadership of Sir Misbah-ul-Haq have strongly refused the media reports going around that PPCL Academy, created by some guys who are under investigation for their role in spot and match fixing in PPCL PSL, is the unofficial sponsor of the team. No player from is allowed to join or be part of this dubious Academy in any capacity. Misbah further said that Misbah Niazi Cricket Academy is the Academy partner of the club while Sir Misbah-ul-Haq Lodge is the main sponsor.

    In other news, ACU chief Sir Misbah-ul-Haq has confirmed to media that they are aware of the happenings wrt PPCL Academy, he also said players should refrain from this thing and report to him incase any offer is made re fixing, he also told reporters that he has given his personal number, so that players can report offers immediately. The ACU chief also confirmed that @Watsupdoc and @Thunderbolt14 and constantly being monitored and any mischievous move by them would cost them heavily, Misbah also expressed frustration at teams having convicted fixers in their team, he said that he will have a talk with the owners in this regard.

    To report any approach kindly feel free to call or WhatsApp Sir Misbah-ul-Haq on his personal number:

    @TrentDevil I think MisbahUnited should make an "offer" to Shoaib Akhtar, he'll deal with this lawyer

    We will have to waive the logo for him though, because he may not want to don the MisbahUnited emblem.

    I've received a notice from Tafazzul Rizvi which is based on lies & fabrications. I've engaged Mr Misbah-ul-Haq Niazi as my lawyer to send befitting legal reply on my behalf to said notice. I stand by my words and these guys @Thunderbolt14 and @Watsupdoc are in for a Tagra Phainta.

    Some excerpts from Square Drive's lecture:

    When it comes to batting, it's quite simple - make sure to hit the first couple balls of every oher straight to point, scoring no runs off of them. Try to make them full-blooded cut shots so you have people defending you for it

    Apart from that, ensure that you call for a bat change or a change of gloves against the run of play on at least a couple of occasions. The innings should revolve around these bat changes

    When you feel it's "time" to get out, make sure to call for some water and your designated waterboy (typically in the form of @Manager101, @Manager102, or one of his Manager accounts) will come running out and will go over the required mode of dismissal with you

    Oh yeah, don't forget to score some runs in between all of this

    Fantastic lecture!

    Chapter 3: Lollywood and Bollywood

    How does one develop a brand? This is a perpetual question that players have pondered for decades now, from the original brand of Don Bradman to the modern day Kohli.

    As cricket has evolved in the modern era, player brands have evolved too. It is no longer a gentleman’s game. We’re talking about the Afridis, Akhtars, and Akrams who have scaled the Bollywood social scene to develop relationships with the likes of Shahrukh, and the Azharuddins and Kohlis whose love lives catapulted them from cricket superstars to pop culture celebrities.

    That is what we are here to teach you at PPCL Academy. Our focus is on creating a brand, a player lobby, social connections with contacts in the Cricket Board, media lobbies to support you when you are dropped from your team, relationships with tabloids whose reporters you can tip off to defame your competitors, and of course, the ability for you to find your very own Anushka Sharma.

    Be sure to accept any and all invitations to post-match “get togethers”. Do not be worried of the consequences of coming home late, whether it is from your coach or if you need to go in to bat the fourth innings of a Test Match the following morning. Lack of performance can always be compensated, however, a player’s reputation is irreplaceable.

    Look for pairings where you can be matched with a rising star actress. It is very important to tease the tabloids without explicit confirmation or denial. Some ways of doing this are visiting public occurrences together, donating to the same charity, and appearing in the same Head and Shoulders commercials.

    Leak pictures to the press regularly, in addition to spicy information that may make the headlines. Soon, you will develop from star player to star icon. We have covered in our other lectures the great need to purchase your very own private island. You will find this helpful here.

    Finally, do not lose hope. You will know it is working when you receive a call from the PCB chairman. If you get sued at any point, PPCL Academy would like to clarify that the contents of this lecture are purely advisory and will not take responsibility for any decisions made.

    Do not hesitate to reach out to @Mueez sir for expert advice.

    Great lecture.

    Below are some tips for the youngsters:

    - Remember always respect others and especially women

    - You want to become a brand - make an Instagram account and post pictures of yourself like Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf.

    - Give interviews to paparazzi magazines and come in the “limelight”.

    - Perform in your first couple of series and them relax.

    If you follow all these steps I guarantee you will be as famous as IK in his playing days

    Thank you for inviting me for the lecture, TBH I am looking forward more to @Watsupdoc and @Moh@n lectures after an epic tied game, let us give them some time to digest that the match has tied , then it would be wonderful to listen to what they have to say about the tied game, this is definitely a big highlight of PPCL history

    The academy is the best thing that happened to me. My advice to all the youngsters is to join this institution and take advantage of its resources.

    Tied games would normally lead to heart breaks but the academy shows you the bright side to this by giving you bonuses and luxurious getaway.

    You need the academy it doesn’t need you. Think hard about that.

    @Batman to @Thunderbolt14, OUT, 62.54kph, @Batman tosses this one up to @Thunderbolt14. That spun a long way away from the batsman after pitching. Quick work by @Manager101 who appeals for a stumping. He's given him! Stumped
    You’d think a stumping on the last wicket with scores tied and just a single needed would be suspicious

    This is how it’s done, kids. Pay attention.

    After the successful first half, academy has decided to expand the operating field and will now encompass White Ball Cricket also.

    Sources have told Reutrres the move is stimulated by possibility of youngsters playing regularly in ODIs and t20s. For some reasons youngsters couldn't get much game time during Red Ball Cricket and as such are considered potential assets for academy.

    A couple of points I would like The Academy to note:

    1) I would like to start a petition for the Tigers to be renamed as the Tie-gers @Thunderbolt14 @Mueez

    2) I would like to have my name changed to Jibran Drive in the sim for enhanced performance

    3) Salman Butt deserves extra perks for his vital knock against Misbah United

    Hope you get my requests processed @Watsupdoc
