Country forcefully making youths with other dreams become cricketers
Best Cricket Board (BCB) has been accused of forcing young men, who never dreamed of playing cricket, to play the sport internationally.
Investigations by social media detectives found that Tiktokers, TV models, saints and gym instructors topped the list of those who were sent to different countries to play cricket against their will. Some were even deceived by the suggestion that they weren't being sent to play cricket, but instead to do what they actually wanted in life.
One of the enforced cricketers vented his frustration on social media anonymously. "Since my childhood, I wanted to be a TikToker. I used to make TikTok videos with a bat in hand pretending to be a batter. One day, BCB texted me and told me that they were sending the country's best TikTokers to foreign countries for better training so that our country would get a TikToker like Khaby Lame.
"I agreed, but they sent me on 22 yards of a cricket pitch to face bowlers. How do they expect a TikToker like me to hit the ball delivered by professional cricketers over the boundary?" the fake cricketer fumed.
A probe by Satireday found the above TikToker was not the only one who fell victim to this deception. "I wanted to become a renowned model. They asked me to be ready with my baggage and sent me to a foreign country, saying that I would be in some photoshoots. But, instead of photographers, I found only bats and balls. Who will let them know that I just wanted to be a model, not a cricketer?" he asked, claiming to be previously deceived by an e-commerce scammer.
A gym instructor, who was also forcibly sent to a foreign country to play cricket, said, "They found me physically strong and fit and assumed I would be a good hitter of cricket balls. They asked me to be a cricketer and when I refused, they threatened me. The next day, I found myself on a field where a Pakistani bowler was rushing towards me and then threw a hard ball at me. I tried to defend myself with the bat in my hands, but somehow, it hit the stumps.
"I really didn't know what actually happened and later, I was speechless when I found that people were bashing me for not being a good batter. How will I convince them that I have never wanted to be a cricketer?" he said with tears in his eyes.
When asked about these allegations, BCB emperor said, "Thank you for your question. We will win the next world cup. Thank you all and bye."
