No Pakistani Player should ever go to Bangladesh. They are ungrateful and backstabbing lot. If Pakistan did not help them, there would have been no international cricket in countries like Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Ireland. Pakistan gave them games and experience when no one else did. All this family excuses are a load of rubbish. You are a sportsman, not a soldier fighting a war. Before you choose to play cricket, you should know that travelling to other member nations is a national duty. Boards these days hide their hypocrisy behind players. Throw him a PSL contract and then watch, not only will he come to Pakistan, he will do whatever we want him to do.
We wouldn’t miss you, enjoy your vacation. For all that matters, people are losing interest in sports anyways, these are modern times, age of coque huawei y6 pro 2017 naya Internet, even if Bangladesh does not visit us, most of us will not care more than we would care for a single samsosa for snacks. So dont come, we dont care, its not like Bangladesh is a cricket powerhouse, its fun seeing u coque iphone 5 funny guys making mistakes during fielding, but still its no quality cricket, truth be told Bangladesh is just stepping stone for coque iphone 6 vache pakistan, pak needs teams to visit, and the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and bangladesh, may my rudeness coque iphone 6s pirates des caraibes be forgiven, u r that second 3rd step, we dont care about u, our journey is 1000 miles, u r the first few minuscule steps. So mr rahim, come, dont come, we do not photo pour coque iphone 6 care, even Bangladesh, come, dont come, we dont care. It does not matter to us.
Brother it is your decision and we have no issue with it but just one correction, for PSL, the player first show the interest whether he would like to be part of the league and only after the player agreement, other club owners bid for coque marvel huawei p20 mate pro that player. Also, the PCB has maintained coque iphone 4s angleterre since last year that the next PSL will be held in Pakistan so you cannot say that you were not aware of that (so you either backed out later on if coque iphone 4s portugal that is the case). Anyhow all the best and I hope that you will visit Pakistan in future…
