Wankhede was left in tatters after the India loss. What was interesting to notice was none of the Indian players were slammed after crashing out of the global tournament. Was it the love for West Indies team in India that saved ‘Men in Blue’ from the shame?

The Pakistan bureaucrat not only holds an MBA degree from the Institute of Business Administration (IBA) but also boasts a doctorate in political economy from John Hopkins University.
