Is cricket still a gentleman’s game?

Read Full BBC article (Gentleman is an Italian+French word meaning a man from a noble and good family)

Few years back when i saw young girls cheering outside boundary for the 6s and 4s i could sense this is not right. There has to be some difference between A GAME and

an entertainment PACKAGE. Incidentally there was a post about mineral water on KMB where i had to post the same link as comment about commercialism and the capitalist approach and this image clearly shows what i mean by that. Instead of making concrete efforts to promote the game and create INTEREST by tough competitions and high standard professionalism few people in CRICKET are making it a adult entertainment product now. If this is applied to local level we may soon seen hijra’s and the known lot in cricket stadiums to provide energy to the tamashaai’s just like they have done with the theater. Living with modern times never means bring in girls with exposed outlook.

Following comment by Arshad on BBC website is the bottom line of my point basically :

ARB on Science and education in Pakistan

Got this SMS today early morning. Didnt want to share but dint have any option too . . .

” Pakistan ke 45% SCIENCE schools/colleges mai . . . LABs hee nahi hain. Atta ur Rahman bar*** ka bacha 8 years se apni ma **** karvata raha”

I didnt even know what to reply to ARB on this. Pure frustration on the state of science and education in our country, especially from a guy who has seen things closely.
