“It’s Ridiculous”: Waqar Younis Tears Into Pakistan’s Tactics On Day 1 Of 2nd Test Against Australia

[ad_1]

Former Pakistan skipper Waqar Younis slammed the team for their “tactics” against Australia on Day 1 of the ongoing second Test at the National Stadium in Karachi. This comes after the first Test had ended in a tame draw as batters dominated their counterparts. There was a lot criticism off the pitch used in Rawalpindi, and the Pakistan team had also received a demerit point under ICC Pitch and Outfield Monitoring Process. With the Australia batters being largely untroubled on Day 1, Waqar termed Pakistan’s tactics as “ridiculous”, saying that the game is already heading towards another stalemate ahead of the final Test in Lahore.

“The tactics I’m seeing at the moment is like we’re looking for a draw on the first day. It’s ridiculous,” Waqar was quoted as saying on-air by cricket.com.au.

Riding on Usman Khawaja’s unbeaten century, Australia managed to reach a total of 251 for three at stumps on Day 1.

For Pakistan, Hasan Ali and Faheem Ashraf had dismissed David Warner (36) and Steve Smith (72), respectively, while Marnus Labuschagne was run out for a duck.

Meanwhile, Australia had crossed the 300-run mark after resuming play on Day 2.

Nathan Lyon, who had come in as a nightwatchman ahead of stumps on Day 1, scored a fine 38 before Ashraf castled him in the first session on Day 2.

Promoted

The third and final Test will be played at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore from March 21-25.

The Test series will be followed by three ODIs, and a one-off T20I. All four white-ball games will be played in Rawalpindi.

PAK vs AUS, 2nd Test, Day 2 Live Updates: Usman Khawaja continued his rich run of form on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test against Pakistan at the National Stadium in Karachi.

Khawaja will look to take Australia to a big total but would need a helping hand. Earlier, David Warner (36) and Marnus Labuschagne (0) had got out on quick succession. For Pakistan, Hasan Ali and Faheem Ashraf have taken a wicket each. Pakistan will hope to roll over Australia as early as possible on Day 2. Initially, Australia had won the toss and elected to bat.

[ad_1]

Women’s WC: Australia thrash New Zealand by 141 runs in Wellington on Sunday.© AFP

Australia on Sunday registered a commanding 141-run victory over arch-rival New Zealand at the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in Wellington. It was a clinical performance from the six-time World Cup champions as they successfully defended 269/8 by bowling their opponents out for just 128 in the 31st over at Basin Reserve.

There were strong contributions from nearly every member of Meg Lanning’s powerful side, with Ellyse Perry (68) and Tahlia McGrath (57) scoring valuable half-centuries and the returning Ashleigh Gardner (48* from just 18 balls) adding the finishing touches on a late Australian flurry with the bat.

But it was with the ball that the Australians really shone, as teenager Darcie Brown (3/22) ripped through the New Zealand top-order and Amanda-Jade Wellington (2/34) and Gardner (2/15) put the polish on an impressive team performance.

The result sees Australia regain their place at the top of tournament standings with three wins from as many matches, while New Zealand drops to fourth and remains in a battle to reach the semi-finals.

Promoted

Brief Scores: Australia 269/8 (Ellyse Perry 68, Tahlia McGrath 57; Lea Tahuhu 3-53) vs New Zealand 128/10 (Amy Satterthwaite 44, Lea Tahuhu 23; Darcie Brown 3-22).

Pakistan Batting Great Zaheer Abbas Inducted In PCB’s Hall of Fame. See Pics

[ad_1]

Zaheer Abbas, Pakistan’s batting great from yesteryears was on Saturday inducted in Pakistan Cricket Board’s Hall Of Fame. 74-year-old Abbas made his Test debut in 1969 and played his first one-day international in 1974. The right-handed middle-order batter scored 5062 runs in 78 Test matches at an average of nearly 45. He also scored 2572 runs in 62 ODIs at an average of 47.62. Abbas was part of the Pakistan team that reached the semi-final of the 1979 World Cup.

Abbas has the distinction of being the only Asian batter to have scored more than 100 centuries in first-class cricket, which includes 12 Test tons.

Abbas is the third Pakistan cricketer to be inducted in PCB’s Hall Of Fame after Fazal Mahmood and Wasim Akram. There are five more inductions to take place in due course.

The induction took place on day 1 of Pakistan’s second Test match against Australia at the National Stadium in Karachi.

“I feel humbled to have been recognised in such a respectful and honourable manner by my parent organisation at my home ground, during play of my favourite format of the game and in front of passionate cricket fans, who have also played an integral part throughout my cricketing career.

“It has been a privilege to have represented Pakistan for nearly two decades and contribute in the national side’s growth in terms of stature and reputation. It was a delight to play with and against some of the all-time greats in an era when cricket regulations and playing conditions were not as stringent as today. Of course, the opportunities were also limited as compared to today, but the rewards, appreciation and acknowledgement was always extremely high and satisfying,” Abbas was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

“Cricket has moved on from my playing days but it still remains a gentleman’s game. It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction to see that this beautiful sport remains in the safe and capable hands of modern day elite cricketers who, day in day out, give their very best in striving to continue to enhance the standard of this sport and in doing so, attract, inspire and motivate younger generation of cricketers.

Promoted

“I am pleased to see a full-strength Australia side play at the National Stadium after 24 long years. I have been part of some great Tests against Australia and I hope that with this tour, the rivalry between two proud nations will revive which, in turn, will only help cricket become stronger.

“I want to thank the PCB, my family, friends and all my contemporaries who supported me in this memorable journey and helped me perform for this great country as well as my national, domestic and England teams,” the batting great added.

India vs Sri Lanka: Ravindra Jadeja Eyes Huge Milestone During Day-Night Test In Bengaluru

[ad_1]

India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja could achieve a huge personal milestone when India face Sri Lanka in the second Test (D/N), starting at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on Saturday. Jadeja, who will be playing his 59th Test for India, is just nine wickets away from completing 250 wickets in the longest format of the game. If Jadeja manages to take nine or more wickets against Sri Lanka in the day-night Test, he will become the 3rd quickest Indian to reach this landmark after Ravichandran Ashwin and Anil Kumble.

Jadeja starred with an all-round performance last week as India defeated Sri Lanka to take a 1-0 lead in the series.

After smashing an unbeaten 175 in the first innings, Jadeja returned figures’ of 5/41 and 4/46, respectively.

As a result, Jadeja occupied the top spot in the ICC Test all-rounder rankings, ahead of West Indies’ Jason Holder.

Meanwhile, Axar Patel, who replaced Kuldeep Yadav in India’s squad for the second Test, is also six wickets away from completing 100 scalps in international cricket (36 Tests, 45 ODIs and 13 T20Is).

Axar could replace Jayant Yadav in the Indian team, having impressed massively in his previous Test appearances.

The Rohit Sharma-led side will look to seal the two-match series, having won the first Test by an innings and 222 runs in Mohali last week.

Promoted

India have never lost a home Test against Sri Lanka, and will look to maintain that record and pull off a clean sweep.

The hosts also enjoy a 100 per cent record in home day-night Tests, having won both of their previous pink-ball Tests, against Bangladesh and England, respectively.
