Azhar Ali says Pakistan attack can hurt England in first Test

first_img Support The Guardian Since you’re here… Share on Twitter Share on Messenger Sign up to the Spin – our weekly cricket round-up Share via Email That was the sum of Pakistan’s success before lunch but they appeared more focused after the break. Ashraf bowled a lively, aggressive and accurate spell, during which he hit Ateeq Javid on the helmet, and Rahat also improved, but it was Shadab who caught the eye. The smiling teenager once again demonstrated the considerable potential of his variations, having Lewis Hill caught at mid-off and Aadil Ali dropped at cover, as well as a handful of respectable leg-before shouts turned down, though Leicestershire’s batsmen later reported his googly can be picked, both from the hand and because it is bowled with a slightly quicker action.Even so, wickets continued to elude the visitors. Javid went on to a half-century before retiring, and the shadows of the floodlight pylons were extending a long way across the pitch before Abbas had Tom Wells caught in the gully. Even then Tom Taylor hit him for four fours in five balls before the players shook hands.“It’s a team game and everybody will have to play a part,” said Azhar. “As a senior player I need to make sure I do what I can to build a platform so we have enough runs on the board to help the bowlers. It’s never easy to play in England. It’s always challenging but we are prepared to do our best. It’s a big opportunity, especially for the younger players.” … we have a small favour to ask.

England v Pakistan 2018 With Pakistan getting ready for the first Test on Thursday Azhar Ali believes they can take 20 England wickets at Lord’s.The opener, who hit 73 on Saturday, said: “Good bowlers always take advantage of early-summer conditions and we have good bowlers.” He added: “That’s the way we’re thinking. We want to play attacking cricket, we want to take 20 wickets. That’s why we are going with five bowlers and hopefully this side will do well.”Their main strike bowler, Mohammad Amir, was unavailable here, protecting the recurring knee injury which forced him to leave the field in the Test against Ireland last week. But the fact that his fellow opening bowler Mohammad Abbas, who took nine wickets in the Test against Ireland, picked up a solitary victim deep into the evening session while his fellow seamers Rahat Ali and Faheem Ashraf both went wicketless, indicates that the pitch at Lord’s is going to have to have spice in it for there to be a serious possibility of Pakistan bowling England out twice.Accurate and economical they may have been but penetrative they were not and on a flattish track only the leg-spinner Shadab Khan looked able to make inroads.Ali also said Pakistan are likely to be unchanged from their Test victory near Dublin last week.As preparations for their two-Test series against England go, taking three wickets in the first 72 overs against what amounted to a county second XI is unlikely to fill Pakistan with confidence. Yet Ali said: “Overall we’re happy with the preparation we’ve had and hopefully that will transfer to the Tests against England. Amir is fine. He bowled very well against Ireland and in the last couple of days he’s been doing his rehab and also some bowling and he’s quite comfortable.”On a cloudless morning it took the visitors almost an hour and three-quarters to prise out Leicestershire’s young openers, who had brought up the 50 before Shadab had Sam Evans leg-before on the back foot for 22.Harry Dearden had ground his way to 19 off 77 balls when a loose drive at a wide delivery from Saad Ali gave Fakhar Zaman a low catch at backward point.

BJP banks on sitting MP Rao Inderjit Singh for Gurugram

first_imgGurugram: BJP has once again relied on Rao Inderjit Singh for Gurugram Lok Sabha constituency seat. After the BJP announced his name on Saturday, Singh will be hoping to win from the Gurugram seat for the fifth time. Rao Inderjit is the son of Rao Birender Singh who has also won from the Gurugram seat a number of times.In 1998, Rao Inderjit Singh contested from Congress and won. His victory was shortlived as in 1999 he was defeated by Sudha Yadav from BJP who besides being a tall leader of the saffron party is also the widow of Sukhbir Singh Yadav, a martyr in Kargil war. In 2004, Rao Inderjit defeated Sudha Yadav and from thereon he has been winning the Gurugram Lok Sabha seat regularly from Congress and BJP seats. In 2014, Rao Inderjit for the first time fought on BJP ticket and won by more than one lakh votes. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderDespite being a prominent leader nationally, Rao Inderjit in the past has not shied away in expressing his displeasure on the workings of the state government. Recently, he disagreed with the state government policy of moving the substantial portion of Aravallis out of the Punjab land and preservation act (PLPA). He has also stated several times that it is the Central government that has played a much greater part in revamping the city’s infrastructure by improving roads and connectivity. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThough Rao Birender Singh and his son have had a formidable record in winning the Ahirwal belt maximum number of times, they have been defeated a few times. After the emergency, Rao Birender Singh of Congress was defeated by lawyer Manohar Lal Saini from Janata Party. Later in 1980 elections, Saini was defeated by Rao Birender Singh. The victorious reign of Rao Birender Singh carried on with huge wins in 1984 and 1989 elections. The tides for Rao Birender Singh changed in 1991 elections when he was defeated by Colonel Ram Singh, a retired Army soldier who had represented India in 1962 and 1965 war with China and Pakistan respectively. Colonel Singh was instrumental in ensuring BJP win for the first time in the belt when he defeated Rao Birender Singh in 1996 General elections. This is for the last time Rao Birender Singh contested in the General elections.last_img read more

Eerie Easter

first_imgNearly a decade after the 26-year long civil war in Sri Lanka came to a long-awaited close, the people of the island nation were crudely jolted with a series of coordinated attacks on churches and luxury hotels on Easter Sunday. Other nationals killed in the dastardly attack include Indians, Japanese and of USA. In solidarity with Sri Lanka, other nations and world leaders extended their condolences the grieving nation. On a day of worship and cheer, memories of the civil war were wrenched back in a flash. Faraz Shauketaly, a prominent journalist, spoke about the Sri Lanka Civil War and its connection to Sunday’s attack, reiterating that in Sri Lanka, the ethnic conflict began approximately 40 years ago and finished 10 years ago. The 3-decade long war was perpetrated by mainly a group of terrorists who claimed to want independence in the northern part of Sri Lanka, is a tiny island, about 240 miles long and 140 miles wide. May 18, 2019, will mark the 10-year anniversary of the end of the nation’s civil war fought between the Sri Lanka government and its Sinhala Buddhist majority and the Tamil Tigers minority ethnic group. Warning of more attacks in Sri Lanka, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo commented that the United States will keep fighting “radical Islamic terror” in the wake of the Sri Lanka attacks. This comment very easily labels the mishap with a colour and a community that is otherwise vulnerable on the global stage. These attacks come in line with notorious attacks on churches, the latest being the fire that ravaged Notre Dame. The leaders of Sri Lanka, however, showed remarkable grit and insisted that the national suffering must not become a political game.last_img read more

first_imgThe Manchester United long-standing tradition of bringing through young players has continued with the Portuguese managerEnglish Premier League giants Manchester United have always been seen as one of the best clubs for a young player to develop.And former Red Devils midfielder Michael Carrick believes one of the positive sides of Mourinho’s tenure at United is his development of young talent.“He does get the history,” said Carrick to Sky Sports.“For the manager to put him [Rashford] in and play him… and Scott [McTominay] last year… and give them games, big games as well.”Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“The manager has to take a lot of credit for that. That’s the constant challenge though, isn’t it? That’s what everyone wants to see, that next one,” he added.“They say it’s getting harder. But that’s a challenge for us as a club and for English football – you might not get tens and twenties, you might get five or six players – but it’s got to keep happening.”“At the end of the day, the academies are there to produce players and to give kids a chance of getting in first teams. Especially at United; you can’t ignore the history and traditions,” he continued.“When people ask me: ‘What’s my role now [at the club]?’ That’s a big part of the club. You can’t just neglect the history of the club and what it stands for. And bringing players through is a huge part of that. It’s always been that one, two, three, four – more players in some eras.”last_img read more
