Started from humble beginnings. I used to buy some cds during early 2000's here in Pakistan when ever i saved from my pocket money. Lahore and Karachi were the main markets. Pakistan sports was the largest shop that shipped wide variety of sports footage all across the country and abroad. With the advent of live streaming and sites like youtube their business saw a decline. Since people prefer watching online instead of buying it saw a great dip in buying cds and dvds. Pakistan Sports got shut down in 2005 . Its sister setup cd bank operated till 2012.Now only one shop remains in Lahore but they have limited collection as I have almost all the stuff they had.

Some videos were added when i mailed numerous people of different nationalities on different cricket forums like this one to get the footage.I Have exchanged /traded/ swapped rare games which are added to my ever growing collection.

India Pakistan are biggest markets but sadly no one saw this coming. Now old matches are hard to find. They exist only in people hard drives now. Cdstore.com.pk was an online store who provided matches in vhs and dvds from early 2000 to 2012 started but it also got shut down due to some issues like privacy, youtube etc. A few like cricketvideos.com still exist though but they are pretty much nothing compared to the stuff Pakistan Sports boasted off.

I feel he could be a great asset to the tour of South Africa. He just took another 5 and 11 in total during the match. He can hit on the good length consistently and on a South African wickets thats all you need. Like Vernon Philander he can be lethal even with 125-135 kmph pace. Chameera is fit and taking wickets now so my three pacers will be Chameera, Pradeep and Rajitha. Shanka as a bowling alrounder.

Related to my above comment on changes, Dasun Shanaka might replace Lahiru Kumara if selectors eye on extra batting cussion and he can swing the ball in South African conditions.

If we are going to change captains it must be for a younger player with the future in mind and not Herath. Nothing against Ranga, its a move to nowhere.

Yeah. Mathews is a poor captain but there is no need to give the captaincy to 38 year old.

I feel this might be the squad with at most one or two changes. But I personally would like to see Sandakan over Dilruwan or I 'll take Vandersay.
