Definitely neither Sami nor Jarrod follow Tweeter of Pak players. They do not sound happy about missing on playing BPL in their tweets. Expect more conformance to reality while giving criticism as top reporters of cricket.

I don't understand why he mentioned BPL in this video and brang up things like GDP because the country has nothing to do with BPL. Need to stop mixing Politics with Cricket and correct yourself. This year payments in BPL have been much more realistic with the top player Shakib earning over $300,000. Yes last year prices were insane for players like Afridi and Gayle were way over the top but that's because BPL as well all know was rushed but both of them didn't play the whole duration of BPL last season and therefore didn't receive even half that fee. We know a lot of you guys are jealous that a minnow teams have their own franchise based T20 league with a proper format and big Cricket teams like England and Pakistan cannot so its good to see :P

Its you guys who are giving BPL publicity and thanks for popularizing it and doing the job for us we already have reached a 100,000 fans on facebook in just 1 year after IPL the second highest :)

Osman, Please talk slowly, single space b/w two words and double space b/w sentences. It will make a big difference. Sincerely.

Enjoyed hearing a Paksistani voice representing Pakistan on CricInfo. I am not surprised that it is with Jarrod -paying attention to the other podcasts where Jarrod has apperared, he has spoken about Pakistan all the time and I appreciate it. Welll done CricInfo, well done Jarrod, well done Osman
