Playing with the Big boys - Zulqarnain Haider claims asylum

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So Mr Haider has been threatened with his life, and so, in a brazen move to snub his own country and national cricket board, he's made noises (and has according to the BBC) about claiming Political Asylum in the UK. Not sure how the political bit can be achieved considering that the Pakistani Government don't (to my knowledge) persecute sportsmen for not taking a bung.

    However that aside, you've got to love the Pakistan Cricket Board's reaction to his claims . . .
    So what exactly is he trying to say? Is he saying that being threatened is par for the course in Pakistan? **** me, I know it's a shitty country but . . .

    BBC Sport - Cricket - Pakistan keeper Zulqarnain Haider claims asylum in UK
  2. Why the **** did he fly all the way over here and not seek asylum in Saffers!!! We all know because he will get well looked after here.
  3. so this has nothing to do with him:

    1. possibly being prosecuted at home for corruption
    2. kicked off the national team
    3. wants to play county cricket in England to make money

    f*ck him, put him back on the first plane home
  4. Pakistan were playing the Proteas in the UAE not South Africa.
  5. He's a bit dim really if you had pakistanis after you the UK would not be a good place to hide. Out of the frying pan into the fire springs to mind
