Media is pushing a strange narrative around the holding of Pakistan Super League (PSL) Final match in Lahore. Listening to news updates and talking heads on media it appears as if there was no international cricket in Pakistan ever, and that Pakistan would change when international teams would start coming to Pakistan.
Can we recall pre-2000 era when all international cricket teams used to come to Pakistan? Did it help changing Pakistan to a peaceful country? Shall peace come with the theatrics of PSL? Shall Pakistan transform into a progressive, peaceful and prosperous country? Shall the problems of the poor be resolved and addressed automatically? Shall the corruption end? Shall India and Pakistan come to peace? Shall the Military go back to the barracks?
And many other questions. ———–Nothing shall change. These are all cosmetics. Useless theatrics.
