  1. Pakistan's Sarfraz Ahmed and teammates celebrate winning the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy Final against India at The Oval, Kennington, London, Britain, June 18, 2017. Action Images via Reuters/Paul Childs Livepic/Files Pakistan is set to play 121 internationals during a four-year period starting May 2019, as per a new scheduling document discussed at a workshop in Singapore early December. The new Future Tours Programme (FTP) has an additional two Tests, five ODIs, and 10 T20Is for Pakistan, taking the matches tally to 121 and putting the team on a more even footing with countries such as Australia (123), Bangladesh (124), South Africa (122) and New Zealand (119), ESPNcricinfo reported. Last week, the publication discussed a version of the FTP that was included in the workshop held on December 7 and 8. As of the end of that meeting, the updated FTP produced by the members had "minor adjustments". "The earlier FTP showed 104 internationals scheduled for Pakistan between May 2019 and May 2023," the website stated. "The updated version has them playing 121 internationals ? they have two Tests, five ODIs, and 10 T20Is more than in the earlier FTP." It remains unclear as to who these additional commitments are arranged against. The FTP's final version will be put forward to the International Cricket Council's (ICC) Board in February next year. After that, the plan would require a vote at the body's annual general meeting (AGM) in June. According to the website, "the PCB has been eager to emphasise that its engagements in the new FTP will be about [the] quality of contest rather than quantity." "Opponents have been classified on the basis of the value they provide to a broadcast deal ? by the PCB's working, 46% of their total home games in the next FTP will be against high-value opponents (Australia, South Africa, England and Bangladesh), 30% against mid-value opponents such as New Zealand and West Indies, and the remaining against low-value teams such as Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Ireland, and Afghanistan." "The four-year FTP is built around two cycles of a two-year Test league, with nine teams in it." It is noteworthy that the Test league is scheduled to start with the new FTP in May 2019, while the ODI league begins in 2020.

  5. Muhammad Yousuf LAHORE: Former Pakistan captain Muhammad Yousuf has hailed the upcoming visit of Sri Lankan team to play a T20I game in Lahore a ?defining moment in Pakistan cricket?. "It is a history making moment in Pakistan cricket as the Sri Lankan team will be visiting Pakistan after a gap of almost nine years and it is going to have a very positive impact on our national cricket," he told APP. Sri Lanka will be playing their third and last match of the ongoing T20I series on October 29 at Gaddafi Stadium. "It does not matter that the Lankan team is playing a lone T20 game in Pakistan, what is important is that the visiting team is playing in Pakistan after 2009 unfortunate incident when their bus was attacked by the terrorists," said Yousuf. The former cricketer termed the Pak-Sri Lanka match a very important cricket activity "which will see international cricket taking place in Pakistan". "The successful tour of the World XI paved the way for the return of international cricket to Pakistan and now the Lankan team playing a T20 game is another step forward to have international cricket [back here]," he said. Yousuf acknowledged the hard work and continuous efforts of the Pakistan Cricket Board for bringing international cricket back to Pakistan. "PCB stood firm on its stance of having cricket in Pakistan and it pleaded the country?s case at all the international forums in a very professional manner and finally the International Cricket Council also lent its support for the resumption of international cricket in the country by sending its World XI to Pakistan last month," he said. Sri Lanka?s attack survivors bring top-level cricket back to Pakistan Thousands of security personnel will guard routes to the stadium, and air surveillance and intelligence monitoring is also in place as Pakistan hosts Sri Lanka on Sunday The former Pakistan captain was of the view that the return of international cricket will especially motivate the youth, as the young generation will get inspired by seeing foreign teams playing in Pakistan. "I appreciate the Sri Lankan side for visiting Pakistan and I value their gesture to support the cause of bringing back international cricket to Pakistan," Yousuf said. He said PCB chairman Najam Sethi deserves praise for ensuring cricket?s homecoming. "He (Sethi) launched Pakistan Super League and made it a success, then its final and the tour of the World XI were successfully organised in Lahore and all these efforts served as trust-building measures which helped in convincing the ICC and other cricket-playing countries to send their teams to Pakistan," said the former batsman. He said after Sri Lankan team visit, West Indies will be touring Pakistan next month to play a three-match T20I series and these visits will be inspiration and motivation for other teams to consider touring the country in due course of time.
  6. Last month was the 10 year anniversary of this website, and I did **** all to celebrate it. Which is really the right way to celebrate a site like this. I was going to do an infographic making fun of myself, and I didn’t even do that. But I am doing something else that has something, slightly, to do with this site, I’m starting my own sports writing course. I never passed highschool, university, and also never worked at a newspaper. When I started this site I was a car park attendant, so you know, I’ve learnt a few things along the way. This scrappy little cesspool was the place I learnt how to write good like. So if you want to learn from the guy who taught himself by writing about a Kallis orgasm, you can. There are two SE London all day Saturday classes available: The 21st of October that has just had two cancellations, and thusly has a shittone of space for an intimate course where you can feel my spittle on my face as I talk. The 4th of November class is almost booked out. So you’d want to get in fast for that. There will be a course in Melbourne for late January. And more courses in the UK next year. For those who that doesn’t cover, there will also be an online course hopefully active by late November. You can register your interest for it here. The course is essentially me reverse engineering my writing, so it’s a pretty horrible look inside my brain that will hopefully explain how to be a better writer on sport. Or a sociopath. The rest of the course is from spending the last ten years talking to other aspiring writers. Answering their questions, doing reddit AMAs, dealing with the odd work experience kid, and helping out my friends. I think there are important, easy and practical things you can learn in eight hours that can help you become better. This is really the course I wish I’d taken back in the day, instead of pissing about here making fun of cricketers all the time. Anyway, do the course, don’t do the course, whatevs, I’ll be off half arsing that infographic that I’ll never finish. View the full article
  7. LAHORE: South Africa?s Faf du Plessis, the captain of the World XI, said the historic tour to Pakistan presents a rare opportunity for the players to be a part of something bigger than just cricket. He was addressing a press conference in Lahore with World XI coach Andy Flower, following the team?s arrival in the country earlier today for a three-match T20 Independence Cup beginning from Tuesday. ?When I sit down with my family some day and we talk about this.. it?s something I would be glad to have been a part of,? said du Plessis, as he expressed his excitement for participating in the historic series. ?I am proud to be captain of the World XI, to be bringing international cricket back to Pakistan,? he said, and thanked the Pakistani people for welcoming and hosting the team. Andy Flower said he was happy and proud to be coach of the World XI team. ?We are celebrating the return of international cricket to Pakistan. This brave nation had to suffer absence of international cricket for a very long time,? Flower said. The former Zimbabwean cricketer pointed out that Pakistan team had achieved a lot of significant milestones in the eight years that it had suffered isolation in the cricket world. ?Pakistan helped Zimbabwean cricket a lot in the 1990s,? he said. The coach expressed hope the world will get to see some great cricket action this week.
  8. Fans entering Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore for the Pakistan Super League final in March 2017. Photo: AFP Pakistan takes a huge step towards reviving international cricket at home after years of isolation when they host a three-match Twenty20 series amid tight security against a star-studded World XI, starting Tuesday. The series will be the most high-profile in the cricket-crazy country since a 2009 militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore left eight dead and drove away international cricket and most other sports. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have high hopes that the series will close that dark chapter for good ? and allow a new generation of players to experience the thrill of playing before a home crowd for the first time. Just five members of the current squad have done that before ? skipper Sarfraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Sohail Khan and Ahmed Shehzad. Looking forward to entertaining fans in Pakistan: Darren Sammy 'Pakistan is trying to bring cricket back safely and we are happy to be part of that,' Sammy said "I can assure all Pakistan cricket fans that we have missed playing in front of them," Ahmed said. "But I am confident that through this tour more cricket will come our way and we will (do) our best to win for home fans." Bigger issues "Everybody involved in the series will realise there are bigger issues at stake than winning at cricket," said World XI coach and former Zimbabwe batsman Andy Flower. "However, I think when these excellent players get together as a team, their competitive juices will undoubtedly flow and they will come together and be doing everything in their power to win those games. "I'm pretty certain about that," added the former England coach. Independence Cup tickets still up for grabs online, at BoP branches Rs2,500, Rs4,000 and Rs6,000 tickets made available online again Security has dramatically improved in Pakistan in recent years, but militant groups retain the ability to carry out spectacular attacks and officials are taking no chances. Some 8,000 police and paramilitary forces will guard teams as they travel back and forth from Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium. Roads and shops will be closed around the 27,000-capacity venue, while spectators will have to pass through multiple security checkpoints. Long wait While some vendors around the stadium have complained about the security, fans seemed unfazed. "I had to stand in a queue for seven hours before getting my ticket," said local college student Mohammad Farooq proudly. Match referee Richie Richardson reaches Lahore for Independence Cup Sir Richie Richardson has been appointed match referee by the ICC for the series Since the 2009 attack Pakistan have been forced to play most of their "home" games in the United Arab Emirates ? with the PCB complaining they have incurred losses of around $120 million as a result. On the field, Pakistan will start favourites in their first outing since their shock victory at the 50-over Champions Trophy in England in June. The World XI are led by South Africa's Faf du Plessis and feature his countrymen Hashim Amla and David Miller, plus Bangladesh's Tamim Iqbal and Australia's George Bailey in a strong batting line-up. ICC recognition They have also tempted out of retirement at the age of 41 the captain of England's 2010 World T20-winning side, Paul Collingwood. A potent bowling attack comprises South Africa's Morne Morkel and Imran Tahir, with Australian Ben Cutting and West Indies' Samuel Badree and Darren Sammy. "I am positive that this series will serve to open the doors of international cricket in Pakistan," said PCB chairman Najam Sethi. Support from the International Cricket Council (ICC) has been crucial. The ICC have accorded international status on the matches, which will be played on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and have sent former West Indian great Richie Richardson as referee. "The ICC wants to see regular international cricket being played safely in all its member countries and the World XI playing in Lahore is a step towards that for the PCB," said ICC chief executive David Richardson. Sri Lanka to play T20 in Lahore, announces PCB Tournament will start with a Test on September 28 in the United Arab Emirates "We are optimistic that this will be the next step in a steady and safe return of international cricket to Pakistan." Whatever the result, if it passes without incident it will pave the way for a further, hugely symbolic step: the return of Sri Lanka next month. On Saturday, Pakistan announced the itinerary for a full Twenty20 series against Sri Lanka ? mainly in neutral venues but, if the World XI passes without incident, the finale is planned for Gaddafi Stadium. If it comes to pass, it will be eight and a half years since the deadly attack on Sri Lanka's team bus outside the same Lahore venue, which left six police and two civilians dead and six players wounded.

  12. KARACHI: Experts have opined that Pakistani batsmen were playing old-fashioned cricket and domestic cricket needs to be streamlined to yield better results in future. Speaking in Geo News special transmission on Sunday, former Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar regretted, "Pakistan has shown such immaturity in run chase against India that it appeared as if we had raised our hands." He said that scoring 300 runs in modern-day cricket has become an easy task but Pakistani batsmen were still playing a "conventional, old-fashioned" brand of the game. Muhammad Yousuf criticised the decision to not induct Junaid Khan in playing 11, saying, "It was an injustice to him". He added that Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur should be questioned about his "planning", which could not be witnessed during the match. Former cricketer Sikandar Bakht said domestic cricket in the country needs to be restructured in view of getting better results. He lamented that the domestic tournaments are being held without planning. Former Pakistan skipper Imran Khan said though winning or losing is part of the game, it was painful to see Pakistan lose against India without competing. He said that it was necessary to restructure Pakistan cricket to come out of the dire situation. "As long as, our cricket structure is not streamlined, the vacuum between India and Pakistan cricket will continue to increase." Khan further said streamlining cricket was not possible without the appointment of Pakistan Cricket Board chief on merit. "We will continue to face disappointment resulting from defeats like today's," he added.
