PAKISTAN GET WIN OVER RIVAL WEST INDIES

June 3, 2017

Pakistan edged out victors in the game against West Indies at Kensington Oval. Both sides have a volatile history in the game and it predictably ended with Pakistan winning by just six wickets.


Eighteen-year old talented Pakistani legspinnerShadab Khan was a dominant force during the duel. He forced the opponents to slump 49 for 6 with his three wickets with the first eight balls in an international match. He had such a wonderful debutuntil the duo of Kieorn Pollard and Carlos Brathwaitecame into the picture. The heavy hitters managed to get some momentum for Indies but they barely reached three figures.

Kamran Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad – who have been absent – were not able to stop the attacks but the spirited display from West Indies never rose above six.

Shoaib Malik and Babar Azamwere consistent in their game, chasing with risk-free cricket. They did the hard work, so Pakistan needed just 18 runs off five overs to seal victory.

ARTHUR, PAKISTAN’S COACH PLOTS AUSTRALIA’S DOWNFALL

January 22, 2017

The coach of the Pakistan cricket team, Arthur was once the head coach of the Australia Cricket team.


However, he was sacked three years ago in a dismissal that was alleged to have been acrimonious and in which the South African laid a claim for a high profile severance from his employers.

Less than two years into his tenure as the coach, his post began t0 unravel especially during the 2013 tour of India where his team led by Michael Clarke were whitewashed 4-0.

And during the infamous ‘homework-gate’ scandal, four of their players were stood down for a test. The Champions Trophy tournament held in London a few months later, saw England’s Joe Root being punched by opening batsman, David Warner on a boozy night out at a bar.

With the discipline of the team appearing to be in complete disarray, Arthur was thus dismissed just three weeks before the Ashes and replaced with Darren Lehmann, who currently is the coach of the Australian Team.

England Cricket team was beaten by Pakistan in the third test match

November 30, 2015

The England Cricket team was beaten by Pakistan in the third test match at Sharjah earlier today and with that, the latter was able to win the series as well.

Needing 238 more runs to win the game and square the series up, the English batsmen couldn’t rise to the occasion and despite, the resilience shown by the captain Alastair Cook, they fell short by some distance.

For Pakistan, the spinners delivered the goods as they were expected to with Yasir Shah having another belter of a test match.

England would be pretty disappointed with this loss especially after where they were in the context of the match at the closure of the opening day.

They had been able to send Pakistan packing at not a big score on a surface which was decent for batting and thereafter, they had the opportunity to take a big first innings lead which they failed to do.

Mohammed Hafeez, who is in the Pakistani team only as a batsman these days after being banned from bowling by the International Cricket Council, then played one of the innings of his life in the third innings and took the game away from England almost on his own.

A few people were still backing England to hunt down 284 to win the test match, but, with the surface getting more and more abrasive and Ben Stokes being injured and not expected to contribute in his full capacity, it was a bit too many to score.
