    Cool bleak

    Hi,

    In the following title: Future bleak for Pakistan cricket.

    Shouldn't it be: "Bleak future for Pakistan cricket"?

    If you're talking about grammar, yes, there needs to be a verb.

    However, headlines, book titles, poetry, music all take some license!
    In other words, they don't follow the rules.

    And, it should be Headline English, or English Headlines.
