    Over the past few weeks, Pakistan's most famous sporstmen, the cricketers, have tarnished the sport and themselves to a whole new level. After allegations surfaced in the tabloids, on the eve of the 4th day's play at Lords, they literally poured excrement on the hallowed turf when they walked out that morning, the cloud of match-fixing over their heads and the lack of shame on the balcony.
    Giles Clarke - the man who had given Pakistan a cricketing lifeline - totally snubbed the teenage, who was, the sensation in World Cricket, during a shambolic awards ceremony within Lords, and not on the famous baize.


    A few weeks later, across the atlantic pond, and one of Pakistan's lesser known sport star, Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi the tennis player - a rare commodity in the country itself - made the headlines for Pakistan, and for all the better, as He reached both the mixed doubles and men's doubles final - where he partners Indian Rohit Bopanna, in another move that could break the ice between the two's ever so brittle relationship-, falling short with a Bryan - the twins are the most formidable duo ever, after the Woodies - on the opposite end at both time.

    Despite having lost, He still did enough to propel Pakistan into the limelight again and in better circumstances, not to mention the Pakistan flag that appeared on Arthur Ashe, not quite the home, but very much of the sacred grounds of it, and the troubles of the past few weeks seemed distant.

    The ultimate moment came however, when during His speech, He pleaded for the perceptions of Pakistanis to be changed, but more potently, His condoning of the plans for the media-dubbed '9/11 Mosque -building of the conquerors' that His ultimate appraisal has been won. In the post-match speech, Qureshi said when asked of the proposed Mosque, that was the freedom which made the country great, and in one of the biggest events on the USA calendar, with the world watching, its not just Pakistanis that have been made proud, but Muslims all over. Having previously courted controversy for teaming up with an israeli, he's sure one of my favourite sportsmen nowadays, and I'm sure many Pakistanis.

    Respect to this guy. I watched both his finals and both the time it was clear he was giving more than his 100% while playing ans was better than both his partners. Would have been terrific if he would have won and honestly a win here would have made the game far more popular in the country than it is currently but nevertheless he has made people to see this game which is a big achievement. Whats surprising is that he is very humble and speech at the end was absolutely brilliant and timely and was recieved with a lot of clapping from the crowd which i wasnt expecting! Now this is how an ambassodor of pakistan should be like.

    And this from a guy who has made it on his own with help from his parents, he has been continuously snubbed by the sports authorities in Pakistan but time in time again he has made Pakistan proud on the other hand we have beghairat cricketers who despite all the support and laurels they get from this country go out and sell their country.
