Unnecessary criticism

The Pakistani team is being subjected to unnecessary criticism and barbs, because it has exited the ongoing T20 World Cup. Attacks are being made on the team and even individual players, in the media. Past senior players are also making personal comments, which are not constructive.

How does it matter if some players take a holiday in the USA or the UK after the games, or buy an expensive car?

Cricket is a game. One side wins, another loses. It happens in every game, be it football, hockey or cricket. The skies do not fall. The media and Pakistani cricket commentators should stop criticising their team and battering it, in international forums and other websites. It is not good for the morale of the team. It is also in poor taste.
