  4. Back in February 2017, the Indian cricket team were showered with many accolades after winning the T20 Blind World Cup. In a spirited performance, the Indian team defeated their arch-rivals Pakistan by nine wickets to clinch the world title in Bangalore. But, just 10 months later, the heroics of the Indian team seemingly faded away as they were reportedly asked to pay for securing a place in the state side for the national cricket tournament, last year. However, if one has followed their journey in the recent past, they'd know that it's nothing new. The Indian cricket team for the blind has been one of the most successful sides in the international circuit. They have also won numerous competitions on the back of a brilliant showing in the past. Yet, they continue to suffer at the hands of red-tapism and politics amongst state bodies across the country. On the 20th of January, the rampant Indian team, once again, made the country proud after beating Pakistan in the summit clash to win their second consecutive Blind World Cup in Sharjah. Chasing a mammoth target of 308 runs in 40 overs, Sunil Ramesh led from the front with a pivotal knock of 93 runs to help India secure an emphatic win in the penultimate over of the game. © Twitter India started off their chase in a cracking manner racing to 111/1 after 15 overs but soon lost two quick wickets in the form of run-outs to be at 116/3 after 16th over. However, a brilliant partnership between Sunil and Captain Ajay Kumar Reddy (62) brought Indian back into the game. Sunil, who fell short by just seven runs in what could have been a brilliant hundred, was cleaned up by Amir Ishfaq in the later stages of the game. While India looked comfortable in their chase, they did stutter towards the closing stages of the game. After losing their skipper Ajay, India suffered two more hasty dismissals, but in the end, they managed to steady their nerves to win the coveted final. If their hard-fought win wasn't enough to draw plaudits, Indian captain Ajay won more praise after his touching gesture during the presentation ceremony. The Indian cricketer dedicated their win and the trophy to the soldiers who gave up their lives for the country. #BlindCricketWorldCup: Captain of the Indian team Ajay Kumar Reddy dedicates the trophy to the soldiers who devote their lives for the nation pic.twitter.com/1WMKapjdMm — Doordarshan News (@DDNewsLive) January 21, 2018 There was no surprise that the bigwigs of the country lined up to praise and laud the heroics of the Indian team on the social media. But, that's it. There was no fanfare for them at the airport. No one has announced any sort of a reward for the team. And, in a few days, we'll even forget that they won the World Cup. They are brilliant exponents of India's beloved game, a sport that routinely produces millionaire superstars. But, none of the cricketers from India's World Cup winning team are going to get rich from the sport any time soon. That is because they are all blind. Congratulations to our cricket team for winning the 2018 Blind Cricket World Cup! They make the nation proud and inspire every Indian with their game as well as phenomenal attitude. True champions! — Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) January 20, 2018 Unlike their sighted counterparts, who are wildly popular and grandly feted, these exponents of the country's favourite game remain largely unknown. They still have day jobs. No one mobs them in the street. That day may still be some time away, but it hasn't deterred these Indian players from giving their best as their hardwork continues to bore fruit. After a string of international victories, blind cricket in India is increasingly coming into its own. In the past five years, India has won two One-Day International (ODI) and Twenty20 (T20) World Cups despite not having a professional structure. It's needless to say that if Virat Kohli's team had achieved such a feat they'd be weighed in gold. #BREAKING: India wins Blind Cricket World Cup 2018 by defeating Pakistan in the final at Sharjah (UAE). Sweetest victory lap by the Indian team to celebrate the moment. Bharat Mata Ki Jai slogans reverberate. Captain Ajay Kumar Reddy dedicates the World Cup to the Indian Army. pic.twitter.com/rxbD2Ddk6H — Aditya Raj Kaul (@AdityaRajKaul) January 20, 2018 Last year, when India won the T20 World Cup at home, the government disbursed cash rewards of Rs 7 lakh to each member, while the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) gave out Rs 3 lakh. However, in a stunning revelation, the blind cricketers were asked to part with 30% of their prize money for a place in the state side for the national cricket tournament for the blind last year. Despite the accolades, enthusiasm and improved opportunities compared to two decades ago, the Indian blind cricket team continues to suffer from the lack of funding for travel and respective tournaments. Unlike Pakistan, the Indian team do not receive salaries as per a pay grade system. And, with no formal support from the BCCI, these cricketers have bare minimum access to adequate facilities which often robs them of greater opportunities. So, this time, when the Indian cricket team for the blind have won their second consecutive World Cup title, let's hope that they get their due - for once the cash-heavy BCCI can help the Cricket Association for the Blind in India (CABI) to right a few wrongs.
  5. Photo: ICC Pakistan sealed their place in the ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup quarterfinals by beating Sri Lanka after a thrilling encounter at Whangarei on Friday. Pakistan restricted Sri Lanka to 188 after skipper Hassan Khan won the toss and opted to bowl. Opening bowlers Arshad Iqbal and Musa had Sri Lanka in trouble early on. Suleman Shafqat stood out with three wickets, while the previous fixture?s man-of-the-match Shaheen Shah Afridi claimed crucial two wickets. [embed_video1 url=http://stream.jeem.tv/vod/691c5cc8667f826c704c8ba169601503.mp4/playlist.m3u8?wmsAuthSign=c2VydmVyX3RpbWU9MS8xOS8yMDE4IDg6MTA6MTggQU0maGFzaF92YWx1ZT1nZVdiL1NOa0hDenMxcHdSUXBhb2J3PT0mdmFsaWRtaW51dGVzPTYwJmlkPTE= style=center] A sure-footed half-century from Ali Zaryab (59), and a 45-ball unbeaten 24 from Hassan Khan carried Pakistan across the line with three wickets in hand. The team chased down the target in 43.3 overs, ending at 190/7. Ali Zaryab was named man-of-the-match. Reigning U-19 Asia Cup champions Afghanistan have also secured the quarterfinal berth.

  7. DHAKA: The highly-awaited Super 4 face-off between arch-rivals Pakistan and India was delayed due to heavy rainfall on Saturday. The Hero Hockey Asia Cup match, which is being played at Dhaka?s Maulana Bhashani Hockey Stadium, has been delayed by 90 minutes. The game is crucial for Pakistan while India needs to draw to cement its position in the final. The top two teams at the end of the second round will reach the final while the teams finishing third and fourth will vie for the bronze medal. India is currently on the top of the table with four points from one win and a draw, followed by Malaysia which secured three points after their win against Pakistan. South Korea have two points, from their two draws, and Pakistan is at the bottom with one point from the draw against South Korea. In their last face-off, India won 3-1 against Pakistan. The goals were scored by India?s Harmanpreet Singh, Chinglensana Singh and Ramandeep Singh, while Ali Shan scored for Pakistan. Pakistan are three-time Asia Cup champions Pakistan while India have lifted the cup twice. It is interesting to note that Pakistan won all the first three editions of the cup in 1982, '85 and '89. While India's victories were achieved in more recent times, in 2003 and 2007 In all of Pakistan's three Asia Cup wins, India were the runners-up. In 1985 and '89, Pakistan defeated their neighbours in the final. The inaugural 1982 competition was played on a single league basis. There also the Green Shirts defeated India in the decisive last match. India's first win, in 2003, came at Pakistan's expense in the final and then again in both countries' last pool match in 2017. In total, the traditional rivals have met seven times in the tournament.
  8. After a comprehensive 7-0 win over the hosts Bangladesh in their opening fixture of the 10th Hockey Asia Cup, Pakistan next faces Japan on Friday at Dhaka's Maulana Bhashani Stadium. Japan were beaten 1-5 by India in their first match. Japan is yet to reach the podium at the Asia Cup though they have finished fourth no less than four times. This will be the fifth meeting between the two countries in Asia Cup. Pakistan outclass Bangladesh with incredible 7-0 win Abu Mahmood stars with a hattrick of goals in Pakistan's victory against hosts to go one up in the Hero Asia Cup 2017 Pakistan has won three and lost one. Japan's lone victory came at the 2007 Asia Cup in Chennai, India where they defeated the Green Shirts 3-1. That defeat meant Pakistan failed to reach the semifinals of a continental event (Asia Cup/Asian Games) for the first time. They eventually ended at the 6th spot.
  9. Back in 2007, then FIFA president Sepp Blatter had called India the 'sleeping giant' during his visit to the country. In 2012, the FIFA supremo claimed that India is slowly waking up and promised that he won't leave football's governing body until the game is established in the country. Three years later, Blatter's bid to extend his term as president suffered a crucial blow with charges of corruption bringing an end to his 17-year reign as FIFA's top boss. While Blatter - serving a six-year ban - watched events unfold from the sidelines, India continued its efforts to rise through the ranks as a footballing nation. Fast-forward to the historic 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup and the so-called 'sleeping giant' - that apparently needed "several alarm clocks" to wake up, as claimed by Blatter earlier - is now seen truly awake and kicking. In the coming days, when cricket-crazy India takes stock of their first-ever FIFA World Cup campaign, a rare moment will stand out. Never before had the country played in a FIFA even, let alone scoring a goal. But, now, they can claim to have done both. If nothing else, the 48,354 individuals who turned up at the Jawaharlal Nehru stadium on 9 October will surely take that home. Indian football fans making a lot of noise inside the JLN Stadium #BackTheBlue #FIFAU17WC #INDvCOL pic.twitter.com/fwzYuNzoc5 — Indian Football Team (@IndianFootball) October 9, 2017 An unstoppable header that shocked Colombia got a billion home fans on their feet and saw a 16-year-old etch his name in the history books for a rare feat that will echo in the memories for generations to come. After a 3-0 loss to USA and a 0-1 deficit in their second game, the frustrations were rising for the Indian colts as the match entered the 82nd minute. But, as many feared the best chances had arrived and left, there it was - a corner that was going to set the Nehru stadium on fire. Jeakson Singh, who was brought into the side to help India gain a greater presence in the central areas, didn't have much say in the game earlier, but Sanjeev Stalin's dipping ball from the corner found him among a cluster of players. The ball was destined for him as he rose to meet it with his head, directed to move by a quick jerk of the neck. The ball deflected past the Colombian goalkeeper and crashed into the top corner. Cue hysteria. First ever goal by Jeakson Singh for @IndianFootball in the #U17WorldCup #INDvCOL #IndianFootball@Minerva_AFC pic.twitter.com/4DFJQxV3CL — GoalBold (@goalbold) October 9, 2017 But, India's joy was short-lived. While the hosts were still overcoming their emotions, striker Juan Penaloza caught the Indian defence napping and claimed his second strike of the night to put Colombia ahead and eventually sealed the game 2-1. It was heart-break of the greatest magnitude for the home side. The joy quickly turned into sadness and the hopes of a billion fans evaporated as quickly as the morning dew in sunlight. A game that saw a much-improved version of the Indian side, should have ideally led to a better result for the hosts, but it still had its moments of brilliance with Jeakson's goal standing tall. It was a moment every Indian fan, player and even their coach had been patiently waiting for: A header that gave hope to a nation taking the initial steps in what appears to be a promising future for Indian football. While Jeakson's goal eventually couldn't save his side from their second-consecutive loss, his unique feat - achieved on the back of hard work and resilience - comes as no surprise. Braving Financial Adversities © BCCL Born in the Haokha Mamang Leikai village of Manipur's Thoubal district, Jeakson lacked many of the luxuries of childhood. He was only 6 when he first kicked a football in the backyard of his house. And, soon fell in love with the game, with little knowledge of the struggles coming his way. His father Konthoujam Deben Singh suffered a stroke in 2015 and was forced to leave his job with the Manipur police. While it was surely an emotional challenge for the youngster, the situation quickly turned into a financial crisis for his family. With no other source of income, Jeakson's family is now dependent on the meagre income brought by his mother from selling vegetables at the Khwairamband Bazar in Imphal. Along with his maternal grandmother, Jeakson's mother travels 25 kms from their home to sell vegetables everyday in a bid to procure the basic necessities for the family. Jeakson's elder brother Jonichand Singh is also a contributor to the family income as he is currently playing for Peerless club in Kolkata Premier League. But, even that has not made much of a difference to their family's financial condition back home. National Team Snub © BCCL Despite his impoverished childhood, Jeakson's family (especially his mother) never allowed their financial crisis affect their son's aspirations to become a professional footballer. And, he also found an adequate partner in his cousin Amarjit Singh - the captain of the current U-17 Indian side. They also played together in school. With holes in his pocket and a dream of playing for the national team, Jeakson knew he had to raise his game when he left his home to travel to Chandigarh to hone his skills at a tender age of 11. But, while things fell into place for his cousin Amarjit, Jeakson was in for some early heartbreak. In 2015, when the national team selectors travelled to scout players from the Chandigarh Football Academy, then chief coach Nicolai Adam felt, at nearly 6 feet at 14 years, Jeakson was 'unnaturally tall' for his age. The defensive midfielder was overlooked for a spot in the side, leaving him devastated, but hopeless. Turning The Tide © BCCL Rejection from the national side is capable of affecting the professional footballers, but Jeakson - despite his young age and inexperience - was not the one to back down. Continuous hard work and passion for the game, eventually, saw the budding footballer secure a place in Punjab's decorated Minerva Academy, but the U-17 World Cup still looked a world away from him. But, that didn't deter Jeakson from doing what he does best - braving all odds in the face of adversity. Another window of opportunity opened up when Minerva FC were invited to play a friendly match with India's U-17 team in Goa last April. With India's best bunch of players and U-17 World Cup prospects at display, Minerva - on the back of a brilliant goal by Jeakson - put their best foot forward and emerged victorious 1-0. Luis Norton de Matos, Adam's successor, was clearly impressed as he wasted no time in drafting Jeakson into the squad along with three other Minerva players - Nongdamba Naorem, Mohammad Shahjahan and Anwar Ali. And since then, there has been no turning back for Jeakson. A Rare Piece Of History © BCCL Against Colombia, in front of a jam-packed Nehru stadium, Jeakson showed he's got nerves of steel. Playing one of the best matches of his career, Jeakson dictated play from the midfield alongside his first cousin and captain Amarjit. While his teammate Komal Thatal wowed fans with his dazzling footwork in India's first game, Jeakson's outing was an embodiment of a calm and composed professional in the sport. He was not doing anything flashy, just picking up loose balls and distributing them well to the Indian forwards. His strong presence in the midfield ensured India were not overpowered by the physically-superior Colombian players. But, the biggest moment - not only for Jeakson, but also for Indian football - came in the last quarter of the game when he head home Stalin's inswinging delivery from a corner. Not sure if I've been happier watching a goal scored by an Indian team. So much to be proud about and so much to learn. #INDvCOL — Sunil Chhetri (@chetrisunil11) October 9, 2017 While India celebrated their first-ever goal in a FIFA World Cup, Jeakson - whose family was elated in the stands - etched his name in the history books as the country's maiden goal-scorer in the biggest spectacle of the sport. “I felt on cloud nine when I scored the goal but it would have been sweeter had we won the match. We deserved a result, and we tried our best to get it but in the process we learnt a huge lesson about what international football is all about,” he said after the game. Cynics may dismiss India's outing as a tournament of children and may even deride the team if they don't manage to make it through the group stages, which seems likely, and deeming Jeakson's goal as mere irrelevant now. But, as much as the exposure on the big stage against the best in the world is crucial for players to dream big, Jeakson's historic header - which is bound to make both Bhaichung Bhutia and Sunil Chettri feel jealous - is critical for the growth of football in the country. For a youngster who fought off financial adversities and rejection from the national side before turning the tide in his favour with hard work and perseverance, it's only fair that Jeakson ended up scoring the historic goal for India, for his was a tryst with destiny that eventually saw him stake claim to a rare piece of history.
  10. After suffering a 1-3 loss in the first-leg of the Spanish Super Cup final, Lionel Messi and Barcelona were in for more despair as the Catalans failed to cut down the deficit in the second-leg, losing the match 0-2 and the title 1-5 (on aggregate). Barcelona were swept aside by a rampant Real Madrid side with goals from Marco Asensio and Karim Benzema, securing Zinedine Zidane's seventh major trophy as manager. If humiliating their arch-rivals with a resounding 5-1 aggregate victory wasn't enough, Real captain Sergio Ramos decided to wind up Barcelona talisman Messi for good measure. With time ticking away in the match, Messi was eager to make every single second count when he attempted to get the ball off Ramos in a bid to take a quick free-kick. With Ramos offering the ball to Messi, the Argentine's hopes of a quick free-kick almost came true until the Real defender chucked it in the air to the sheer displeasure of the Barca forward. Made to look like a complete fool, the usually mild-mannered Messi reacted by calling Ramos a "mother f*****". If Sergio Ramos holds the ball out to you and you expect him to actually hand it you then you're a fucking moron & deserve to look stupid. — Macca (@The_Paris_Angel) August 16, 2017 While the Barcelona fans were clearly unimpressed by the antics of Ramos, the Real fans and majority of the other club supporters couldn't help but have a good laugh at Messi's expense. Cristiano Ronaldo's celebration against Barcelona tonight. ð pic.twitter.com/hoXULZTDlu — InfoCristiano (@InfoCristiano) August 13, 2017 Earlier in the first-leg, Cristiano Ronaldo had also mocked Messi by re-enacting his infamous shirtless celebration after scoring the second goal for Real.

  11. Manchester United were battling injury concerns, while Real Madrid, themselves, didn't really have a great pre-season. But when the ball was kicked for the first time in UEFA Super Cup final, none of it mattered. Dominating the proceedings for the better part of the match, the Los Blancos retained the title following a 2-1 win over Manchester United. Brazilian midfielder Casemiro opened the scoring with a left-foot strike midway through the first half, while Spanish star Isco, consolidated Madrid's advantage with a slick piece of skill and finish in the 52nd minute. © Reuters For Man Utd, their newly-signed 75-million-euro striker Romelu Lukaku scored his first competitive goal for his new club to reduce the deficit in the 62nd minute after spurning a chance earlier. But, in the end, the Red Devils fell short in an overall patchy show. While the Jose Mourinho side surely missed out on an opportunity to secure the Super Cup trophy, the team still had something to smile about - thanks to social media trolls. © Reuters Marouane Fellaini needs no introduction to the near-constant dose of over-the-top criticism. For a man who is considered a perennial joke for the social media trolls and football fans, it wasn't really surprising to see Fellaini getting trolled after the game. Despite a good performance in the game, Fellaini just couldn't escape the wit of social media trolls who got creative with one particular photo of the Belgian from the clash. The photograph showed Fellaini attempting a header, but the timing of the snap made the Man Utd star look like a melting candle. Showing no mercy and doing what they do best, the trolls came up with hilarious memes after using Fellaini's photo.

  12. At the age of 34, Mithali Raj has probably achieved everything there is in international cricket. She has shattered numerous records, won multiple laurels and has gone on to become one of the biggest names in the sport. And, over the years, she has established herself as one of India's most capable batswoman in the game. But, she isn't done just yet. The past few months, and especially the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup, saw Mithali scale new heights in the game. She slammed seven consecutive fifties in the ODIs and then followed it up by breaking the 6,000-run barrier to become the first-ever woman to achieve the feat. And, just when you thought it couldn't get any better for Mithali, it somehow did. Going from strength to strength, the Indian captain continued her fine run with yet another gem of an innings that saw her reach a personal milestone - this time against the Kiwis. Perfect response from the team after 2 losses to win against New Zealand and seal the semis spot against the Aussies. ???????? pic.twitter.com/BCndsARL92 — Mithali Raj (@M_Raj03) July 15, 2017 During India's crucial tie against New Zealand, Mithali led from the front and slammed her sixth ODI hundred to guide India to an imposing total of 265 runs. Leading from the front, she stitched a 132-run partnership with her deputy Harmanpreet Kaur (60) for the third wicket. Reuters However, Harmanpreet's dismissal in the 36th over eventually saw India losing two quick wickets in a space of seven deliveries. With the Kiwis sensing an opportunity to tighten the noose, India desperately needed a partnership and once again it was Mithali who stitched a partnership of 108 runs for the fifth wicket with adequate support from her teammate Veda Krishnamurthy (70). Riding on the heroics of Mithali, while India managed to showcase their batting might, New Zealand, on the other hand, failed miserably. Reuters Chasing 266 runs, the Kiwis suffered early setbacks with both their openers Suzie Bates (1) and Rachel Priest (5) returning to the pavilion within the first three overs. Soon, the Black Caps found themselves reeling at 27-3 in 11 overs. While New Zealand was in desperate need of a partnership to steady their innings, the worst was yet to come. Amy Satterthwaite (26) and Sophie Devine (7) had stitched a budding, yet promising, 24-run partnership for the fourth wicket when Rajeshwari Gayakwad dismissed the former to rattle their chase. Satterthwaite's dismissal triggered a massive batting collapse for her side that lost its next six wickets for a mere 28 runs. Reuters On a day when the Kiwis needed their batswoman to deliver, only three players managed to score in double digits with Satterthwaite's 26 being the highest for a team that was eventually bowled out for just 79 runs. For India, left-arm spinner Gayakwad spun a web around the Kiwis to register her maiden five-wicket haul in ODIs. Gayakwad finished her spell with impressive figures of 5/15 - her best in an ODI innings. Apart from Gayakwad, Deepti Sharma (2/26), Jhulan Goswami (1/14), Shikha Pandey (1/12) and Poonam Yadav (1/12) were also amongst the wicket-takers for India. After crushing losses to South Africa and Australia earlier, India desperately needed to beat the Kiwis to make the cut for the last-four stage. And, with Mithali and Gayakwad leading the way, the Indian women's cricket team stormed into the semi-finals where they'll now lock horns with the mighty Aussies on 20 July.

  13. Sana Mir being congratulated for playing her 100th ODI. Photo: Cricket World Cup official Twitter Pakistan won the toss and elected to bat against New Zealand in Taunton on Saturday, as they search for their first victory in the ICC Women?s World Cup 2017. The match holds historical significance for Pakistan skipper Sana Mir, who has become the first female cricketer from the country to play in 100 ODIs. Although not mathematically eliminated, Pakistan?s chances of progressing are slim, but Sana Mir feels the team has learned a lot so far, and needs to build on that experience. ?What?s very important is that we are able to bat out the 50 overs like we did against Australia. We need the young girls who are playing in the future to get an opportunity to face the best bowlers in the world. This is a learning curve for the newcomers. ?I think we have started very well with the ball against all the big teams so we?re not afraid of them [New Zealand]. ?I think with the kind of attitude and consistency we?re showing with our bowling, particularly early on, we can hurt New Zealand,? she said. For New Zealand, a win today could be crucial to their chances of progression in the World Cup. ?This whole tournament we?ve understood that every game was going to be a big match, and having the rain-affected match has made that even more important,? said New Zealand captain Suzie Bates. ?Every game is almost a knock-out game so we have to bring our A game and play as well as we can against any opposition.? Playing XI:
  14. Sana Mir top scored for Pakistan with 45 against Australia on July 5, 2017/ICC ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Women?s cricket captain Sana Mir believes her team has learned a lot from the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup but needs to build on that experience. Although not mathematically eliminated, Pakistan's chances of progressing are slim in the World Cup, but Sana feels the team has learned a lot so far, said a press release issued here. ?We may not have had the best tournament so far but we need to enjoy it,? she said. "We only qualified for the tournament a few months ago so just being here is an achievement in itself and I think we are better than we have shown so far. "What is very important is that we are able to bat out the 50 overs like we did against Australia. ?We need the young girls who are playing in the future to get an opportunity to face the best bowlers in the world. This is a learning curve for the newcomers. New Zealand captain Suzie Bates in action, July 6, 2017/ICC/Getty Images ?We started very well with the ball against all the big teams so we are not afraid of playing New Zealand in Saturday's clash. I think with the kind of attitude and consistency we're showing with our bowling, particularly early on, we can hurt New Zealand," she said. A big win over the West Indies pushed New Zealand back into the top four after four games at the Women's World Cup, but captain Suzie Bates knows that every game is crucial. The White Ferns responded to the defeat against Australia in the best possible fashion, hammering West Indies by eight wickets and chasing down the target of 151 in less than 20 overs. That was enough to leapfrog South Africa in the points table, and with the game between the sides having been washed out earlier in the tournament, their battle for a place in the last four could come down to net run-rate. While New Zealand cannot focus solely on run-rate, Bates admitted it could yet be crucial to her side's chances of progression.
  15. Pakistan captain Sana Mir (L), Australia captain Meg Lanning (R) Pakistan, still seeking their first win of the ICC Women?s World Cup 2017, face an unbeaten Australia at Grace Road, Leicester on Wednesday. Six-time champion Australia have won all of their first three matches in the tournament so far. Pakistan, however, are looking to end the losing streak after falling short against South Africa, England and India. The Sana Mir-led team impressed in the bowling department against India, with Nashra Sandhu taking an impressive four for 26 and Diana Baig earning praise for her swing bowling. But the batting crumbled with Sana Mir (29) and Bibi Nahida (23) the only players to reach double figures, as Pakistan were bowled out for just 74. Diana Baig though is looking at the positives ahead of the crunch game with Australia. Diana Baig celebrates after dismissing Indian opener/ICC ?We?re trying to prepare for the next matches and we?re positive for the Australia match that we will do something. It?s an amazing feeling to play against Australia, but it?s just a team. I want to play against the next team. ?Our fielding and bowling we were 100 per cent but we didn?t click in our batting (against India) but we will bounce back in our next match,? she vowed. Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry, who smashed 71 runs in the match against New Zealand, said her team won?t take Pakistan lightly. ?Every match is a bit of a challenge. We?ve seen teams knock one another off with it being a bit unexpected.. For us, we would just like to keep building and hopefully improving with each match. That?s really the key. Ellyse Perry smashed 71 runs against NZ/ICC ?If those things go well then towards the end of the tournament you should be in a really good place but there?s a bit of cricket to play before then,? she said. Squads Pakistan: Sana Mir (captain), Asmavia Iqbal, Ayesha Zafar, Diana Baig, Ghulam Fatima, Iram Javed, Javeria Wadood, Kainat Imtiaz, Marina Iqbal, Bibi Nahida, Nain Abidi, Nashra Sundhu, Sadia Yousaf, Sidra Nawaz and Waheeda Akhter Australia: Meg Lanning (captain), Sarah Aley, Kristen Beams, Nicole Bolton, Alex Blackwell, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy, Jess Jonassen, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Belinda Vakarewa, Elyse Villani and Amanda-Jade Wellington Umpires: Sue Redfern and Anil Chaudhary Match referee: David Jukes
  16. Nahida Khan - Source: BBC News Nahida Khan, a Pakistani woman cricketer who was the highest run-scorer in Women`s World Cup match against South Africa, has given the credit of her success to her father. "My father backed me despite all the opposition from my family and tribe," she said while speaking in an interview to BBC. "He would say to people that Nahida is my daughter, I'm proud of her passion. He appreciated my struggle and that gave me all the confidence I needed as a budding cricketer." The 30-year-old international cricketer hails from Balochistan province. "My strategy going into bat is always quite simple: score maximum runs and attack the opposition." Pakistan team captain Sana Mir appreciates the presence of Nahida in team. "Nahida is a true fighter and she showed that on the field. It would have been a one-sided affair without her contribution with bat and ball," she opined on the match against South Africa - which Pakistan lost in a thriller. Pakistan's first female international cricket team was founded in 1997. Women cricket in Pakistan faced court cases and even death threats and the government banned them from playing in public for religious reasons. The Quetta-born player made her international cricket debut in 2009 in a match against Sri Lanka at Bogra, Bangladesh. She was also a member of the team who took part in the 2010 Asian Games and won a gold medal. Khan in her interview lamented that despite notable positive developments women cricketers still today face massive issues. "Even today, women cricketers have to practice in the same grounds as men due to a lack of facilities," she said. "In a society where any intermingling of the sexes is frowned upon, you can imagine the stigma that follows." She shared obstacles she faced before reaching in the national squad. "Once on my way back from practice, the rickshaw driver asked if I played cricket because he knew of a girl named Nahida - of questionable morals - who also played cricket with boys," she said. "I lied but every day I am more conscious of the fact that my success would not have been possible without my father's support. "He would shut everyone up who tried to warn him of some impending moral disaster or trouble in finding a marriage partner because I played cricket." However, according to Nahida, her other family members were not as supportive as her father. "My family used to say no one is going to marry me because I wear boys' clothes and play cricket," she adds."No one wants a girl like that in their family."
  17. LEICESTER, England: South Africa defeated Pakistan by three wickets in the Women World Cup match played in Leicester on Sunday. Pakistan scored 206 runs for eight in the first innings. The South African side achieved required target in 49 overs at a loss of seven wickets. Laura Wolvaardt scored 52 runs, while Lizelle Lee hit 60 to steer South Africa to victory. Pakistan's Sadia Yousuf took two wickets.
  18. While the men's team failed to lift the ICC Champions Trophy, the Indian women's cricket team kick-started their 2017 World Cup campaign with an astounding win over England at County Ground in Derby. While India secured a comprehensive 35-run victory, it was skipper Mithali Raj who eteched her name in the history books with yet another personal feat. Put in to bat, the Indian team got off to a brilliant start with both the openers Punam Raut (86) and Smriti Mandhana (90) providing a 144-run stand to their side. Their partnership was eventually broken by Heather Knight who got Mandhana out caught by Danielle Hazell in the 27th over. While England would've fancied a comeback after Mandhana's dismissal, they were soon left bearing the brunt of Mithali's blazing willow. The Indian captain slammed a 73-ball 71 including eight boundaries to keep the scoreboard ticking for her side. A seventh consecutive fifty for the @BCCIWomen skipper, Mithali Raj! 🇮🇳 ➡️ https://t.co/zAcLPQA9Tu #ENGvIND #WWC17 pic.twitter.com/vqD4BAA8t1 — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 24, 2017 It was Mithali's seventh consecutive half-century, bettering the likes of Lindsay Reeler (Australia), Ellyse Perry (Australia) and Charlotte Edwards (England), all of whom slammed six back-to-back fifties each in the past. In her last seven ODIs including this one against England, Mithali has scored - 71 vs England, 62* vs South Africa, 54 vs South Africa, 51* vs South Africa, 73* vs Bangladesh, 64 vs South Africa and 70* vs Sri Lanka. Also, this is Mithali's 47 ODI fifty, which is also the highest in women's cricket history. Meanwhile, the India skipper is also just 148 runs away from becoming the first women's cricketer ever to slam 6000 ODI runs. Superb batting performance by the @BCCIWomen's team! Keep it up @SmritiMandhana, Poonam Raut and @RajMithali — sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) June 24, 2017 Thanks to her blitz alongside the fifties from Mandhana and Raut, India managed to post a competitve total of 281 runs at the loss of just three wickets in 50 overs. In reply, England fell short by 35 runs before being bowled out in 47.3 overs. Fran Wilson (81) and Heather Knight (46) tried to get England's chase on track, but both of them got run-out thanks to some brlliance in the field by India. With figures of 3-47, off-spinner Deepti Sharma turned out to be the most effective bowler for India. Seamer Shikha Pandey, too, impressed with her tally of two wickets at the expense of 35 runs.

  20. In what was touted to be an epic showdown, the FA Cup quarterfinal between Manchester United and Chelsea was marred by bad tempers and 'excessive kicking', as claimed by the Blues. N'Golo Kante scored the only goal in an ill-tempered quarter final at Stamford Bridge to secure a semi-final slot against London rivals Tottenham Hotspurs, at Wembley next month. The much-awaited clash saw Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera sent off for two yellow card offences in the first half, while Marcos Rojo appeared to stomp on Eden Hazard off the ball. © Twitter Rojo's antics were not spotted by the officials and if it is not included in referee Michael Oliver's report, the Football Association is expected to refer the matter to an independent disciplinary panel. © Reuters If that wasn't enough, a touchline clash between Man United manager Jose Mourinho and Chelsea coach Antonio Conte clearly got the fans going. In a match where the hosts enjoyed 73 per cent of possession, Man United committed 27 fouls including one yellow and a red card. And clearly, the Chelsea boss wasn't impressed by Mourinho's tactics. Left infuriated by what he perceived as United's overly-aggressive tactics, Conte came out all guns blazing in his post-match interview. "My point of view is this: they've got to play football, and my players want to play football. For 20 or 25 minutes, it was impossible for Eden Hazard to play football. I see only that he got a lot of kicks," he said. 6 - No player has been fouled as often in a game against Manchester United in 2016-17 than @hazardeden10 was last night (6). Sore. pic.twitter.com/yE4zC356Az — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) March 14, 2017 "But I don't think I'm crazy and I see only him in this situation. Hazard, for 25 minutes, it was impossible for him to play football. Only kicking. He (Hazard) started the game receiving kicks, and he finished receiving kicks. No one person can say this did not happen. Was that United's tactic? I don't know. But this tactic, to play by going to kick the opponent, does not exist. It's not football for me," Conte added. Echoing similar sentiments, Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois was also critical of Mourinho, whose tactics were to blame for the game turning ugly. “They tried to get in our mind maybe by fouling and kicking to destabilise us. © Reuters “These are the mind games they try to play - they get it from their manager - but we didn’t fall into that trap. They obviously came with a plan, to put Phil Jones and Darmian on Eden and Willian. It was hard to find the space but, after we did, they made a lot of fouls," he said. “They were very hard. It was the style of Mourinho - and Herrera paid the price for his team-mates because Jones just before had made the fifth foul on Eden. Then 10 seconds later, you make another foul and the ref has to give another yellow card. Unfortunately for Herrera he’d already had a yellow. © Reuters “We played our game, we did it our way, like we have for the last six months or so, and we did it well," Courtois added further. Pogba and @ManUtd need to forget about his fee and get back to basics. Like Ronaldo in his early days, too much showboating, head in clouds. — Mack The Knife (@IdMjones) March 14, 2017 The Red Devils, who were knocked out of the FA Cup, were playing without their star-striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic through suspension alongside the injuries of Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial. While the absence of their prominent players was dearly missed, a red card to Herrera pretty much summed up the night for the visitors.
