Nabi becomes number one surpassing Shakib

Nabi becomes number one surpassing Shakib

Shakib Al Hasan was at the top of all rounder rankings in international T20. However, the Bangladesh captain did not play against the United Arab Emirates in the recent series. In that gap, Shakib is surpassed by Mohammad Nabi. The Afghanistan captain took the top spot in the all-rounder ranking.

Nabi scored 246 rating points on his way to top Shakib. On the other hand, Shakib’s current position is number two with 243 rating points. However, despite not playing for the national team, Shakib is spending good time with the bat and ball for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

However, despite the dispute over superiority between Shakib and Nabi, the remaining three places among the top five all-rounders remain unchanged. As usual, England’s spinning all-rounder Moeen Ali is in third place. Besides Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga at number four and India’s Hardik Pandya at number five.

Meanwhile, there has been a change in the ranking of batsmen in the latest update of ICC. India’s Suryakumar Yadav has climbed to number two ahead of Pakistan captain Babar Azam and South Africa’s Aiden Markram. Suryakumar has been in incredible rhythm with the bat recently and has a rating of 801 points. As usual, Pakistani opener Mohammad Rizwan has retained the top spot.

Naseem Shah admitted to hospital 

Naseem Shah

Naseem Shah made his debut in international T20 with a match against India in this year’s Asia Cup. This young pacer has been performing impressively since that match. Pakistan, who was almost losing against Afghanistan, won thanks to his two sixes in a row. He has also got a chance in the team for the upcoming T20 World Cup to be held in Australia. But he got bad news before that.

Naseem had to go to the hospital bed due to physical illness. According to Pakistani media reports, this pacer has been admitted to the hospital mainly due to virus infection. Meanwhile, Babar Azam’s team is currently fighting a seven-match T20 series against England.

Due to illness, Pakistan didn’t get Naseem in the fifth match of the series. This was confirmed by a spokesperson of the team. He said, ”Naseem has been admitted to the hospital due to the deterioration of his health. But the situation is improving now. Whether he can play in the last two matches of the series depends on the medical report.”

Naseem was also rested in the three matches of the series against England. Due to being in the hospital, he will not enter the field even in the fifth match. If Naseem doesn’t become available in the last two matches of the series, it will be a loss for the Pakistan team. Because, in this series, two teams are fighting equally. Naseem can be important there.

Meanwhile, when the news of Naseem’s illness spread, many posted wishing him. Naseem Shah can lead Pakistan’s pace attack in the upcoming T20 World Cup alongside Shaheen Afridi. Many also consider him to be Pakistan’s trump card in the upcoming T20 World Cup.

Gayle returning to cricket again by pairing with Sehwag

Gayle returning to cricket again by pairing with Sehwag

He is called the peddler of entertainment on the cricket field. Chris Gayle is responsible for keeping the visitors on or off the field. However, this star batsman of the West Indies has not been seen in twenty-two yards of the area for a long time.

But the good news for cricket fans. Gayle is returning to the field again. On Indian soil, he will start with team India’s former explosive batsman Virender Sehwag. The comeback episode is going to start.

But this time, not in the main competition, Gayle will play in the Legends Cricket League organized in India with former cricketers. Where he is supposed to play for Gujarat Giants. As a result, if everything goes well, the devastating Caribbean Gayle will pair up with former Indian attacking batsman Virender Sehwag.

Gayle has already reached Cuttack, India, to participate in the league. Cricket lovers are now waiting to see Gayle’s batting frenzy again. T20 cricket means four-sixes in the bat of the ‘universe boss’. Also, when the pair is with Sehwag, there is nothing to say. And if two bats laugh together, it will be more than reasonable.

While Gayle’s addition will add to the beauty of League of Legends, it is also an added worry for opponents. On his day, no bowler can stand before Gayle.

It should be noted that Gayle has scored 14,562 runs in 463 matches in recognized T20 so far. He hit 1056 sixes. Gayle’s fans are waiting to enjoy his batting once again.

IND vs SA

IND vs SA (1st T20I) – Highlights

India has maintained a great form in T20Is. After winning the series against Australia at home, Rohit Sharma’s team also got a huge win in the first match against South Africa. In the first T20I in Thiruvananthapuram, the hosts crushed the Proteas. They took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series with 8 wickets and 20 balls in hand.

India won the toss and sent South Africa to bat first at the Greenfield International Stadium. Coming down to bat, the Proteas were at a loss due to the great spells of the host bowlers. Captain Temba Bavuma (0) was bowled off the last ball of Deepak Chahar’s first over.

Pacer Arshdeep Singh came to bowl the next over. This time the wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw, and David Miller returned to the dressing room one by one. When Tristan Stubbs returned with a catch in the hands of Arshdeep off Chahar in the third over, South Africa lost half of their batters.

South Africa had just 9 runs for the loss of 5 wickets then. They have never lost 5 wickets for so few runs in their history. However, the Proteas lost 8 wickets in 20 overs and collected 106 runs mainly thanks to Keshav Maharaj’s innings of 41 runs from 35 balls. Maharaj hit 2 sixes along with 5 fours in his innings.

Two Protea batsmen reached double figures before Maharaj, Aiden Markram scored 25 runs off 24 balls and Wayne Parnell scored 24 runs off 37 balls. Markram put on a 33-run partnership with Parnell before returning to the pavilion for the 6th wicket. Then Keshav Maharaj made two pairs of 26 and 33 runs with Parnell on the 7th wicket and Kagiso Rabada on the 8th wicket respectively.

As a result, the visitors were able to score 106 runs after losing 8 wickets in the allotted 20 overs. Arshdeep Singh took the highest number of 3 wickets with 32 runs in 4 overs for the hosts. Besides, Deepak Chahar and Harshal Patel took 2 wickets each. Axar Patel took 1 wicket conceding just 16 runs in 4 overs. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was wicketless but gave only 8 runs in 4 overs.

Batting on this wicket was not very easy for the teams. Because India lost the wicket of Rohit Sharma (0) to score only 17 runs in 6 overs chasing the easy target. Rohit lost his wicket to Kagiso Rabada. Virat Kohli (3 runs from 9 balls) was caught behind by Anrich Nortje in the seventh over. 2 wickets went down for 17 runs, which raised chances of excitement in the match.

The excitement followed, of course, but it was essentially Suryakumar Yadav’s batting. This batsman in dream form has once again batted on a different rhythm than his teammates. His partnership with KL Rahul was unbroken for 93 runs for the third wicket.

Rahul played 56 balls to make his fifty, and Suryakumar took only 33 balls. Suryakumar hit 5 fours and 3 sixes in the innings. Rahul’s innings had 2 fours and 4 sixes. India’s victory was assured with 20 balls to spare. In the end, Rahul left the field unbeaten on 51 runs and Suryakumar unbeaten on 50 runs.

The two teams will meet in the 2nd match of the series next Sunday (October 2) at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati.

Cricket Highlights, 28 Sept: PAK vs ENG (5th T20I)

ক্রিকেট হাইলাইটস, ২৮ সেপ্টেম্বর: পাকিস্তান বনাম ইংল্যান্ড (৫ম টি২০)

PAK vs ENG (5th T20I) – Highlights

In the fifth match of the seven-match T20I series, hosts Pakistan defeated visiting England by 6 runs to take a 3-2 lead in the series on Wednesday (September 28). Along with this, wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan was selected as the player of the match for his consistent performance.

After losing the toss at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Pakistan could not make much of an advantage by batting first. Mark Wood, David Willey, and Sam Curran’s bowling rampage ended Pakistan’s innings at 145 runs in 19 overs. Mohammad Rizwan scored the highest 63 runs off 46 balls for the team. Where there were 2 fours and 3 sixes.

Apart from Rizwan, only two other batsmen have reached double figures. In which, Iftikhar Ahmed scored 15 runs off 14 balls and the anointed Aamer Jamal scored 10 runs off 7 balls. Mark Wood took the highest number of three wickets for England. Apart from this, David Willey and Sam Curran took two wickets each, and Chris Woakes took one wicket.

In response, the English were in danger at the beginning when they came down to bat. Mohammad Nawaz picked up the wicket of opener Alex Hales (1) in the first over. Then Philip Salt (3) and Ben Duckett (10) were sent back by two pacers Haris Rauf and Mohammad Wasim Jr. England fell under pressure after losing three top-order batters within 31 runs.

In that situation, the two spinners Shadab Khan and Iftikhar Ahmed cornered the visitors. Both of them bowled eight overs, they conceded 41 runs and took 2 wickets. England’s pressure to score runs per over increases with the slow pace of scoring runs. As a result, the visitors lost their sixth wicket for the team’s 85 runs.

From there, captain Moeen took England close to victory in the last over. He put on a 46-run partnership for the seventh wicket with Chris Woakes. They needed 15 runs to win in the last over, but England could take 9 runs only. England picked up 7 runs in the first three balls. Where Moeen hit a six also.

As a result, the English needed 8 runs from the last three balls of Pakistani pacer Aamer Jamal, who came down to play his debut match. Moeen Ali was in the strike, who hit 2 fours and 4 sixes. But the England captain couldn’t make it in the end.

The fourth ball was a yorker, and so was the fifth ball. However, Moeen somehow managed to get a single. David Willey could only take one run off the last ball. As a result, Pakistan won by 6 runs even with a capital of only 145 runs. Along with that, Moeen left the field with a defeat after playing an unbeaten inning of 51 runs from 37 balls.

All the bowlers took wickets for Pakistan in this match. Haris Rauf took the highest number of 2 wickets. Apart from this, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Shabad Khan, Aamer Jamal, and Mohammad Wasim Jr picked up one wicket each.

England won the first match of the series, and Pakistan won the next match to level the series. England won the third match and went ahead in the series again. However, after winning the next two matches, the hosts are leading the series by 3-2. Tomorrow Friday (September 30) these two teams will meet in the 6th match of the series at the same time and at the same venue.

Former Pakistani pacer Asif is in trouble for commenting on ‘Mankading’

'মানকাডিং' নিয়ে মন্তব্য করায় বিপাকে পাকিস্তানের সাবেক পেসার আসিফ

India beat England in the final match of the ODI series between India and England women cricketers at Lord’s. But Deepti’s ‘mankading’ in that match comes into discussion. This time, former Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Asif got into trouble for commenting on this ‘mankading’.

India scored 169 runs in the last match of the series. England started batting with a target of 170 runs. England had reached the threshold of victory. They needed 17 runs in the last 7 overs to win. But just then the non-striker Shirley Dean came out of the crease before Deepti left the ball.

Realizing the opportunity, Deepti hit the wicket with the ball. Dean got out. And after that the discussion-criticism started. Although now this out has been included as a run out by the law-making body of cricket.

And after this ‘mankading’, there was a storm of discussion and criticism. Former Pakistani pacer Asif also joined this list. He tweeted calling Deepti a cheater. Asif wrote, “ We can see it clearly there is no intention of bowling the ball, she is looking towards non striker batter to cheat him. This is very unfair & terrible act worst spirit.”

The former Pak pacer is now in trouble after tweeting this. Asif had to go to jail for fixing in 2010. Responding to the chastened pacer’s tweet, many Indians wrote, “Fixer speaks for consciousness. There is a limit to fun.” Another wrote, “The cricketer who cheated his country for a few bucks is talking like a gentleman. Bro are you okay?”

Discussion and criticism about this controversial out do not stop. Even England’s test captain Ben Stokes has opened up about this out. Earlier, India’s star spinner Ashwin also faced criticism for dismissing in this way.

Tim Paine, involved in sex scandal, returning to Australian cricket?

যৌন কেলেংকারীতে জড়ানো টিম পেইন আবার ফিরছেন অস্ট্রেলিয়ার ক্রিকেটে?

Tim Paine is the former Test captain of the Australian cricket team. He last played in Australian jersey in 2021. Paine was not seen in field cricket after April of the same year. But now it is known that he is going to return to first class cricket. Paine is likely to play for Tasmania in the Sheffield Shield.

Regarding Paine’s return, team coach Jeff Vaughan said, ‘We didn’t think that Payne would be available all of a sudden. He came and spoke to the CEO and myself one day and said he’d like to come back and he’s certainly going to play cricket for University. So he’s been training with us most sessions the last five or six weeks. So he’s up for selection.’

During the 2017 Ashes series, Paine sent a pornographic image of himself to a female staff member. The former Aussie captain did not stop with just sending pictures, he also sent offensive messages. Paine also offered to have sex with the woman.

The woman brought that incident to light in 2018. At that time, he filed a sexual harassment complaint against Paine with the Australian Cricket Board and the country’s Human Rights Commission. Based on that complaint, the board started an investigation. However, after admitting his guilt, Pain himself left the leadership of the national team. He also apologized to the family.

This cricketer has played 35 Tests, 35 ODIs and 12 Twenty20s so far in Australia’s jersey. If he does well in first-class cricket, he may get a chance to play for Team Australia. Let’s see, whether this former Aussie captain can represent the country again.
