actions speak louder then words – miandad

Javed Miandad, former player of Pakistan (1975-1996) and director-general of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recommended the cricket team of Pakistan to stop blowing their own trumpet in front of the media. They should avoid swanking about their performances and skills. The team should concentrate on the game instead of individual performances. Team work and team unity is very important for any sport and especially a game like cricket which requires full devotion and concentration.
Miandad also criticized and discouraged Shahid Afridi for his not so good performance in leading the team. He suggested the captain should be more responsible and active in leading the team towards success and glory. He condemned Afridi’s current style of playing. It should be improved and rectified.
The former cricketer gave the example of Imran Khan and explained his sportsmanship. He advised the team and the captain to follow Khan’s footsteps, in order to gain success and victory on the pitch. Javed Miandad compelled Shahid Afridi to follow Imran’s way of leading the team. According to Miandad, Imran Khan is one of the most admirable and inspirational captains, a team can ever have. Miandad assured that Afridi has a lot of potential for being the captain of the team. He showed his talent and capability during the World T20 Championship but he just has look up for better methods of playing. He is a superb player, but he goes astray at times.
Javed Miandad felt disappointed at the performance of Pakistan cricket team in the ongoing one day series against New Zealand. According to him the players are not concentrating on the game that is why they lost the first match in Wellington. The attitude of the players needs to improve for International cricket.
He accepted that, there is a lot of potential in some of the players, but they should be directed to make full and right use of their talent. The captain should make such rules for the team that can clearly expose their on-field performance. The poor performance of the team while playing against the kiwis will affect their preparations for the mega event, the ICC World Cup 2011.
The former captain and coach of the Pakistan cricket team, advised the current cricket players to look forward to the Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar for source of encouragement and motivation. He is a man who believes in performing instead of speaking about his achievements.
Tendulkar has had a shining and glorious cricket career, but he never showed off his talent on media. Tendulkar is one of the greatest batsmen in the history of cricket, he is a tremendous and an extravagant in his field. He scored century after century and became one of the highest run-scorers in Tests and One Day Internationals. He is the only one to score Double century in the history of One Day Internationals.
Pakistan cricket players need to take a leaf out of Tendulkar’s book and reinstate the proverb “Actions speak louder than words”.a
