Pakistan’s Obsession With Cricket:
Even though there are multiple reasons for this nation’s obsession with cricket. Many of them are cultural factors connected through history. According to a well-known author Osman Samiuddin, Pakistan became obsessed with the sport because they beat England in 1954. He said, “To beat England in 1954 was the triggering moment for cricket evolution in Pakistan. Beating a country that ruled you for such a long time and in the game they invented (and in their own backyard) was actually the beginning of cricket following in Pakistan.”
While Dr. Murad Musa Khan believes it’s just another passion, calling it “madness of a positive kind”. However, both can be true. It will take quite some time to go back and look at the roots of Pakistani cricket.
