What if ... ?

I have always wondered what If India-Pakistan never split? The political problems would have reduced et. al, but considering the fact that I am a cricket freak, I never thought about it that way . If India and Pakistan never split, undoubtedly, we would have been the undisputable champions in the field of cricket. Let’s see what would have the team, say around 10-12 years been back. 
1) Sachin Tendulkar
2) Sourav Ganguly
3) Rahul Dravid
4) Yousuf Youhana ( 10 yrs back , he was not Md. Yousuf )
5) Inzamam ul Haq
6) Abdul Razzaq
7) Moin Khan
8) Wasim Akram
9) Anil Kumble
10) Waqar Younis
11) Javagal Srinath

Let’s Imagine the present team
1) Virender Sehwag
2) Sachin Tendulkar
3) Gautam Gambhir
4) Md.Yousuf
5) Yuvraj Singh
6) M.S.Dhoni
7) Shahid Afridi
8) Zaheer Khan
9) Umar Gul
10) Naved ul Hasan Rana ( though he is under rated , he is quite a useful all rounder)
11) Mohammed Asif
PS. Leave the injuries, controversies etc etc. This is just my imagination. It can be a good team to some, worse to some.
Now also look at the things which wouldn’t have happened if India and Pakistan hadn’t split
1) We wouldn’t have seen the great “Venkatesh Prasad –Aamir Sohail” fight during the 96 world cup. I am sure, this incident remains fresh in the hearts of every Indian who follows cricket.
2) Virender Sehwag would have scored his first test century against South Africa.
3) Javed Miandad wouldn’t have hit Chetan Sharma for a 6 of the last ball.
4 ) I m sure Gavaskar wouldn’t like this idea, because he wouldn’t have got his only Internation wicket of Zaheer Abbas .
5)Misbah wouldn’t have played that horrible shot to lose the T20 world cup.
6)Saeed Anwar woudn’t have held the world record for his 194.

Many many more ….


  1. nice one Mock.. Altho' like u said the teams are not my choice.. Anwar and Sachin could open and Kumble/Saqi/Mushi.. Md. Yusuf in present team is just carrying towels along with u.. prefer having Mallik, and did u pick MSD? wow!! i'll remember this one. no specialist spinner? Afridi is a pacer right.. Ajmal is a load of talent.. Asif is not!
    Cheers - Steam

  2. That is not possible. India only select midgets. So those guys will never get picked. Also bowlers will get indian disease in that they bowl well first few test and start slacking and get injured and eat ton of dal (even indian muslims) and never hit the gym.

  3. How bout some steamy gossip for the gay fan base of the Wah brothers ???>>>>>>>>>>!!!!!!!!

  4. @Alex - Watever!
