A nation of hypocrites

It was the night of 21st June 2009.........I can bet.....90% of Pakistanis were glued to their idiot boxes (the rest didn't have any electricity)........it was the final of the 2009 T20 WorldCup final. And we won it. The next day, the whole media (print and TV), former pakistani cricket stars were all praising MYK for his captaincy and the teams effort.......
4 months down the road....the same 90% were again glued to the TV screens for the next big thing to happen.......but it wasnt to be so.....they were nearly the same playing eleven......but this time around they lost.....so did the followers back home.....the difference was that the team lost a couple of matches after giving in a reasonable fight and the people back home lost their minds.....stretching the formidable Australian side to the final ball is no mean feat in itself.........and so is reaching the semis.....but then it happens again.....the same media pulls out all its guns towards the team........allegations of match fixing surface again.....MYK is titled the worst choice for the teams captain........as the tournament progressed we witnessed a somewhat similiar response in Indian media on Team India's ouster from the run for the title....
Shame on us....we r a bunch of hypocrites......we did that with the legends of yesteryear and we are still doing that today...
