WI vs PAK

Pakistan vs West Indies

2nd Match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

Pakistan and West Indies will be fighting their first battle against each other in the ICC mega event today on 31-May at Trent Bridge Nottingham. This will be the first outing for Men in Green and the Carabian team in this ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

WARM-UP MATCH RESULTS

If we talk about the Warm Up matches of both teams, Pakistan could only play one Warm-up match against the new Afghanistan team which came out rather as a shocker for the men in Green as they lost to Afghanistan team by 3 wickets. The second warm-up game against Bangladesh was washed away by rain.

West Indies, on the other hand, had an amazing warm-up game against the good looking team New Zealand where WI scored a massive total of 421. and to no surprise won the match comfortably at the end.

West Indies and Pakistan are the two teams which are tagged as the “unpredictable”. that’s what makes PAKvWI exciting to watch. You just never know what could come out of them. On their day they can blow away any side and they can also be very disappointing on a given day as well. Both teams have this surprise element attached to them which makes them exciting to watch. Pakistan and West Indies both have talented players who can jolt the opposition in any condition so this PAK vs WI has to be a close contest many suspects.

Lets take a closer look on what history brings to the table about the two sides.

If we look at the ODI stats of PAKvWI games, then there is not so much to choose from. West Indies may be leading by 10 matches but this total number does include the golden times when WI team was a nightmare for any opponent and they were at the top of their game in the ’70s and ’80s. Recently Pakistan had a better going against the Windies in the shorter format.

Everyone wants the win their first match of this big tournament and set the mood for them in the rest of the world cup thus we can surely expect one hell of a match tomorrow. let see it Pakistan has some answers to the unstoppable WI batsmen who are scoring big recently, and likewise, we will see if WI are able to play the surprising and very capable Pakistan bowling attack.

Chasing down 105 was never going to be difficult and once Chris Gayle got going the match was over. His 50 from 34 along with Pooran's 34 from 19 were the bright points in the innings and they gave the spectators plenty of things to cheer about.With such a big loss Pakistan will have to regroup and come out firing on Monday against England, who they just lost to 4-0.

SERIES OUTCOME: PAK vs ENG

PAKISTAN Team’s Performance and takeaways from the series:

THE BAD:

From Pakistan perspective, Pakistan doesn’t get the momentum they wanted before entering the world cup. This was the continuous 10th defeat of the Pakistan team which ultimately affect the team combination, the atmosphere of the dressing room and also the Psych of the players.

If we talk about practicing in the England conditions to be aware of the world cup conditions, it is well and good but if we talk about batting, bowling, and fielding, the Pakistan team was very down in all the departments of the cricket. They bowl very poorly, no early swing from the new ball, no reverse swing later with the old ball, no variations seen from Pakistani bowlers, Yorkers were also missing in the dead overs from Pakistani bowlers.
Pakistan raised its fielding standards in recent past but in this series, fielding was below the standard and fitness was also an issue in this series.

THE GOODS:

not so much good to account for from this series however, In batting there are few positive points for Pakistan team, openers are very much in form which is the good sign for Pakistan team, middle order works properly, but there was always a hard hitter missing in the lower order which could take up the momentum towards the end and help the team in setting up a huge and Asif Ali filled this spot for Pakistan also plunging his way into the World cup squad.

As a sum up, Pakistan team need a lot of hard work in all department of cricket to make a strong comeback in the world cup as a champion. They have full knowledge of their weaknesses now and they are well aware of the conditions and what they will be up against in WorldCup 2019.

ENGLAND Team’s Performance and takeaways from the series:

All Looking Good for England Team:

If we look at the series from the England perspective, the series was full of positivity and ultimately ending up the series on a positive note always helps the teams to get crucial momentum. As this series was the final series of England before the world cup, England got the full benefit of the series, test their new young boys, tested their batting line, bowling line and their fitness too. Entering into the world cup with whitewashed a team in something every team is dreaming off. If we talk about batting, it outclassed Pakistan bowling line up. Openers are in such a great form, the middle order is like a great wall and the most important thing is that lower order can bat too which is a bonus point for the England team. If we look at bowling, England tests too many young bowlers like Curran and Archer who did their job fantastic and brilliantly well in this entire series. These young guys add some pace in the England bowling lineup with great accuracy. Fielding and fitness of English players are always up to the mark.

CONCLUSION:

If we sum up the entire situation, England is on the top of the entire series as well as on the top of favorites for the world cup by different analysts and by different legends of the cricket. They are so perfect in each department either it is batting, bowling or fielding.

On 4th October 1996, Shahid Afridi came into the cricketing world with a bang, Stunning the world with his exceptional and clean hitting scoring Fastest century in cricket history (100 on 36 balls).

Shahid Khan Afridi has his name written for many records in cricket including Most sixes by batsmen and most number of “Man of the Match Awards” however he has also been in the headlines for non-cricketing reasons as well over his 20 years of career.

Shahid Afridi retired from International Cricket (ODI Format) right after ICC WORLD CUP 2015, Since then he has been mostly busy with his NGO “Hope Not Out”. Shahid has recently written a book which has caught all the media attention and Shahid has been in the spotlight once again due to some cheeky things he mentioned within his biography. Shahid Afridi’s Book is rightfully titled ” GAME CHANGER” just the way he was.

THE GAME CHANGER

Shahid Afridi’s book game changer has revealed many controversial things including Team politics, Board politics and some of the players. Shahid Afridi.

KEY POINTS OF SHAHID AFRIDI’s BOOK “GAME CHANGER”

SHAHID AFRIDI’s BOOK IMPORTANT POINTS and REVIEW

  • Shahid very bluntly told his “ACTUAL AGE” every one from his book saying that he was indeed not 16 years of age on his debut instead he was 19 years old.
  • Shahid Afridi has initially written about his humble beginnings and initial childhood days.
  • Shahid also told us that he scored his first 36 ball Fastest century of the world with Sachin Tendulkar’s BAT! yes, that’s right. Sachin gave his bat to Waqar Younis to make him a similar bat from Sialkot and Waqar let Shahid play with the bat when he was going in to bat before that world record innings. No Wonder SACHIN TENDULKAR had an indirect secret hand in making Shahid a star he is today.
  • Then he spoke about the legendary players from Pakistan like Javaid Miandad, Waqar Younis, and Wasim Akram. For Javed Miandad, he used the word “Weak Human” and told a story when Afridi scored his first test century Miandad asked Afridi to give his performance credit to Javed in front of everyone. Similarly, about Waqar Younis, he says that he was a terrible Captain and a poor Coach as well. He did praise Wasim Akram referring his as his mentor. There is a lot more in the book to read about such stories and instances form Shahid Afridi’s life.
  • Shahid Afridi also discussed the dirty politics inside Pakistan Cricket and between players.
  • He also explained how he was a pure bowler and always meant to be a bowler but people made him batsmen and always expected sixes from his making him live in a confusion for all his career.
  • Shahid also discussed his party life before marriage and a little about his affairs and some funny stories related to it like once when he was impressed by a girl over phone and her voice was so lovely but when Shahid wanted to meet her and invited her in his home. it was a 14-year-old young boy and he felt embarrassed and he and his family met that young boy and spent the day with him.
  • Shahid also wrote about his political views. Shahid Wrote about Imran Khan, Praising him as a cricketer however he is of the view that Imran Khan’s party members aren’t competent enough to deliver.
  • Similarly, Shahid Afridi also discussed Bilawal Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari and shared a story where Bilawal was used as a scapegoat by Zardari to force indulge Shahid into their political gatherings and rallies.
  • Shahid Afridi also expressed his views about Nawaz Shareef, He says that no matter what you think of Nawaz Shareef and he may well be involved in corruption and all but “HE KNOWS HOW TO DELIVER FOR PAKISTAN”. he compared cities and gave an example of developments in Lahore city of Punjab (Where Nawaz Shareef ruled) compared to Karachi and other cities.
  • He also expressed his views about Military establishment of Pakistan where he wrote that Military should stay away from the politics and why they keep interfering in the countries politics when there is no need of it and they should simply stick to their own job.

CONCLUSION

Overall its a fine book with some mistakes and some contradictions here and there, however, Shahid Afridi has exposed some hard realities of cricket and especially Pakistan Cricket which has taken the fans by storm and its a good read. Controversies like legendary players like Miandad, Waqar Younis, and others are there with the sad events of Spot Fixing and Afridi’s Role in It. Overall if you are a Shahid Afridi fan it’s a must-read for you.

Top bowlers always have some psychological impact on the batsmen, which ultimately benefit their teams. In recent history, we know how batsmen had to specially prepare to play wizard spinners like Saeed Ajmal and Muttaiya Murlidharan.

CONCLUSION

In Modern cricket, a Team just cannot win the match with a sharp batting lineup only, to be the best teams need a strong and consistent bowling lineup that can give the desired result consistently at the top level. The bowlers who are ranking at the top are not just the good bowlers they are the key players of their teams and certainly match winners, With ICC Worldcup 2019 coming to these top bowlers and their bowling forms have become far too important to ignore. These top 5 can demolish batting lineup and create troubles for the very finest batsmen. Team India, South Africa, and Newzeland certainly have an edge in the field with the top bowlers in their teams. however only time will tell if these top bowlers will convert their good form into a world cup winning one in next month however all we can do is just watch and hope for the best.

Australia vs Pakistan, Aus wins series 5-0

Pakistan WhiteWashed by Australia in the UAE. (PAK vs AUS)

Finch’s Australian team keeps on surprising with their jubilant performances against teams like India and now Pakistan on their Home Grounds. Australia wins the series in UAE and defeated Pakistan by 5-0.

Also read : THE NEXT SHOAIB AKHTAR IS HERE!

Looks like Pakistan Cricket team was totally clueless in this last crucial series just before the ICC World Cup 2019 and tried pretty much everything from regularly changing Playing XI to changing Captains however nothing seemed to work for them and a disappointing Whitewash was served by Australia to the Men in Green. One can say Pakistan tried a little too many newcomers during this series depicting their lack of seriousness to win the series. It obviously looked like they had no intentions of putting in their best Playing 11 or even put in their A game to win the series. Australia, on the other hand, were very clinical in their performances and players who performed in the previous series continued their good form in this series as well as they were already coming victorious and full of confidence from their Last successful tour of India, winning the series (INDIA vs AUSTRALIA) and beating India by 3-2.

Once again the Play was slow and old school from Pakistani Cricket team and the collapses were regular and frequent. Last Matches captain IMAD WASEEM also could not do anything about it and Pakistan eventually faced a sad end to the dead rubber series for them.

Next Shoaib Akhtar

The Next Shoaib Akhtar is here

The Speed star “Shoaib Akhtar” has been the quickest bowler in world cricket since a long time but now there is someone new in town who can be the next Shoaib Akhtar. He is certainly QUICK. Well, the quickest in Pakistan.

Pakistan Cricket has been producing some amazing cricketing talent over the years. especially in the bowling department, Pakistan has produced some of the finest bowlers such as Imran Khan, Kadir Khan, Sarfraz Nawaz, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Saqlain Mushtaq, Saeed Ajmal, Shoaib Akhtar, and many others. One special highlight of Pakistani bowlers is their unusual talents sometimes in the same of their bowling actions, sometimes they have an unusual “Dosra”, some invented “Reverse Swing” in death overs or some with an express bowling speed of (100mph) or 161.3kph. There is simply no denying that over the past 5 decades Pakistan has given some of the masters of a cricket ball to the world cricket. Whenever there will be a discussion on Pace bowling or speed of delivery one name will always pop up in your mind and that is the “Rawalpindi express” Shoaib Akhtar. He stunning the world with his super speed of delivering cricket ball and setting up a record of 162 kph which is yet to be broken. His career saw ups and downs featuring quite a few controversies as well but he surely had an impact on World cricket with his brutal fast pace bowling. Since Shoaib left the playing field in ICC World Cup 2011 under Shahid Afridi’s Captaincy.

Shoaib Akhtar’s Bowling stats.

While Akhtar was dubbed to be the coolest bad boy in Cricket he was also known for his fancy dressing and aggressive attitude just like his bowling. Some in the media also called him “DON OF CRICKET” due to his bad boy image which grew due to his style and the controversies he found him self in. Shoaib Akhtar will glow as a bright star in Pakistan cricket’s glorious history but he is part of the history now. so whats Next. Well recently during the PSL (Pakistan Super League), Pakistan’s own cricketing league featuring their raw cricketing talent. Quetta Gladiators played a special Player named Muhammad Hassnain. He came under spot light when he bowled some really fast stuff to the international players during his PSL matches.

SO WHO IS MOHAMMAD HUSNAIN?

Mohammad Husnain just 18 years of age played form Team “Quetta Gladiators” (QG) during PSL 2019 edition and stunned the cricket world by world at an express pace. He consistently bowls around 150 kph mark. With his express fast pace, he is able to trouble one of the finest batsmen in the circuit.

Husnain was bowling so quick in UAE that everyone was forced to think that if he could bowl so fast in such dry and dead conditions then how would he bowl in England conditions. Eyeing a future star in the form of Mohammad Husnain Pakistan Cricket Board decided picked him up for the next series against Australia and he was included into Pakistan’s ODI team straight away. With ICC Worldcup just around the corner, it is a good move on PCB behalf and may well be the defining moment of this youngster’s career. Though PSL and this Pakistan vs Australia Series is being played in UAE where pitches are not supportive of Pace bowling. Husnain has a tough castle to conquer in order to get himself included in WorldCup 2019 which is scheduled this year in England and Wales. It is always an added benefit of having someone in the dressing room who is capable of delivering bouncer at 150 clicks. Husnain is surely another positive Pakistan has taken out of their cricket League (PSL). Husnain has the pace needed but only time will tell what will he be able to create magic like the speed star Shoaib and match his persona and charisma on the field and off the field.

Is Virat kohli bad t20 captain?

Is Virat Kohli a bad T20 Captain? Rohit vs Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli is the name of the game when it comes to batting. He is simply a “Master” and has proven his class many times to the cricketing world. He has single handedly won some major games for Team India and his performance stats speaks for himself. Since MS Dhoni stepped down as a Captain he was the obvious choice for the Captain’s seat in the Indian cricket team. Over the years he has excelled in the art of Captaincy as well and has widely impressed with his captaining skills as well. His ODI captaincy has been positive but has delivered fairly good results. However, these days he and his captaincy issues is the talk of the town. Why? lets check it out.

Virat Kohli as a Batsmen:

Virat Kohli Stats:

Virat Kohli as a T20 Captain.

The graphic above says it all. Virat Kholi has the worst stats as a T20 captain. Virat Kholi has captained 22 matches and won only 12 with a Win Percentage of 57.14%. that is probably one of the reasons that India with such a formidable side is still behind Pakistan (relatively a young side) in ICC T20 Team Rankings. If you see the Wiki of Virat Kholi there will be a huge list of Records as a captain but one thing you will notice there is that there is no such record in T20 format, all those records are in ODI or Test Cricket.

VIRAT KOHLI as Captain in IPL (Indian premier League)

Is Virat Kohli the worst ever captain in IPL?

Virat Kohli captains Royal Challengers Banglore (RCB). So far it hasn’t been a good run for RCB with Virat Kohli as the Captain. In 2018 edition RCB was ranked as second last in the points table with just 4 points in the winning column. That is perhaps the darkest dip RCB saw. In this season of 2019, The start is yet again not so bright for the Men in Red as they already have lost their two matches and the matches were fairly one-sided as well. Take a look at the captaincy of Kohli if we widen the number of matches played. Virat has a win percentage of only 47% that is slightly above Ajinkya Rahane who has captained a few matches only.

There has been recent controversy regarding Gautam Gambhir’s Comments on Virat Kohli’s Captaincy when he said.

“Virat Kohli is extremely Lucky that Royal Challengers Banglore (RCB) still stuck with him as Captain.”

Gautam Gambhir on Virat as RCB Captain

On Another Occasion he said

“I don’t feel that he is a Sharp captain. I don’t see him as a captain with sharp tactics. And he hasn’t won the IPL yet. So I think, if the record is good the captain is good,”


Gambhir had said.

Is ROHIT SHARMA Better than VIRAT KOHLI?

Is Rohit Sharma a better captain than Virat Kohli, Well this is a million dollar question but if you dig deep and analyze with neutrality then you will come to know that Both have Captained Team India in T20s and Both have Won 12 Matches each BUT! Rohit has won 12 in only 15 Matches and lost only 3 whereas Virat has won 12 in 22 Matches with a poor average of 57% (in comparison). Rohit Sharma with his calm and cool head in a pressure situation is perhaps more suitable and has a calming effect on the nerves of a team than the expressive Virat who is more vibrant and emotionally involved in the game. Besides everything simply the Stats are enough to determine that Rohit Sharma is better in captaincy, He has won IPL title Three Times, MS Dhoni has also won it 3 Times and then there is Virat Kohli’s RCB not in the top 5. Eventually the change of Captaincy is inevitable in T20s for India, Only time will tell if India is going to persist with 57% Win Percentage and retain Kholi and also RCB retains Virat Kohli or things are going to shift and the HITMAN will be given the charge to shine as the new captain of Team INDIA.

Ashwin Mankads buttler but WHY?

THE BIG CONTROVERSY! Ravichandran Ashwin “Mankad” Buttler but WHY?

Jos Buttler was “Mankad” during yesterdays IPL Match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab. R Ashwin stopped during his runup seeing Buttler advancing from the non-striker’s crease. He stopped and took the bails appealing to the umpires and was later given OUT!

Also Read Article: Punjab Kings XI destroyed Rajasthan Royals in death overs


The decision was referred to the third umpires and at the end of it, Buttler was given out as per the Game Rules. Certainly, Jos Buttler was not so happy about it when he was given out in such fashion. this also sparked controversy amongst the fans and game Gurus on the legitimacy of the appeal and the ethical side of this whole event. many think that it was against the spirit of the game and Ravi Ashwin had no intention of delivering the ball and hence the ball should be dead. Many former Cricket Players came out and expressed their views on this crazy controversy. Most of the international Cricket stars criticized Ravichandran Ashwin his actions and role in the proceedings. Share Warne has expressed that He is “Disappointed in R Ashwin as a Captain & as a Person”
Eion Morgan Also expressed similar thoughts that it was probably not the right thing to do on Ashwin’s end. None the less what’s done is done but one thing is for sure it didn’t set a good example to the youngsters getting to know the spirit of the game. There is a reason why Cricket is called “Gentlemen’s Game”. However, it is entirely up to the fans to decide. express your views in the comments and tell us if it was the right thing to do.
