Naseem Shah Humiliates Afghanistan Again Despite Mankad Controversy

Shadab Khan and Naseem Shah have guided Pakistan home in a thriller against Afghanistan, winning the series by 2-0 despite a Mankad attempt from Fazalhaq Farooqi at the crucial moment of the match. The win has propelled Pakistan to the top of ODI rankings as well.

In a nail-biting encounter against Afghanistan, Pakistan embarked on a challenging quest to chase down a formidable target of 300 runs. The initial stages of the chase witnessed a gradual start, with the required run rate steadily climbing. In the midst of this precarious situation, the star all-rounder Shadab Khan emerged as a star once again. His innings of 48 runs from 35 deliveries, with three fours and a six, played a pivotal role in resurrecting the innings and infusing momentum.

As the contest neared its climax and Shadab started to accelerate the innings, a dramatic turn of events unfolded. With a mere 11 runs needed from the final six balls, Shadab Khan, standing on the brink of steering Pakistan to a remarkable victory, was dismissed through a ‘Mankad’ maneuver by Fazalhaq Farooqi. This action triggered debate on social media platforms regarding the legitimacy of Farooqi’s decision. However, Shadab Khan’s gracious acceptance of the ruling showcased his sportsmanship, something that was clearly lacking in the Afghanis.

With only one wicket in hand and no established batter at the crease, the situation appeared bleak for Pakistan. Nevertheless, Naseem Shah, evoking memories of his previous heroics against Afghanistan, etched another memorable chapter in his cricketing journey. Naseem’s timely strikes, consisting of two crucial fours, culminated in a dramatic triumph for Pakistan, securing an unprecedented chase of 300 runs with one ball to spare. This marked the first-ever victory for Pakistan chasing a 300-run total with only one wicket in hand.

Shadab Khan’s exceptional all-round performance rightfully earned him the “Player of the Match” award with Naseem Shah’s contributions amidst adversity earning him the title of “Player of the Moment” from fans. The star players showed their mettle in the face of crisis once again, helping Pakistan win the series by 2-0. This thrilling encounter not only exemplified Pakistan’s historic chase but also underscored the resilience and fortitude exhibited by its players, embodying the true spirit of the sport.

Pakistan have cemented their spot in the finals of the World Blind Games cricket competition after defeating England by 6 wickets in the finishing round.

The Pakistan cricket team has secured its fourth consecutive victory in the World Blind Games cricket event. In a gripping encounter against England, Pakistan triumphed with a commanding 6-wicket win during the last round match. Opting to bat first, England managed to post a total of 103 runs. However, the outstanding performance by Shahzaib Haider, who claimed 4 crucial wickets, restricted England’s progress.

In response, Pakistan showcased their batting prowess, successfully chasing down the target within a mere 10 overs with 4 wickets to spare. Captain Nisar Ali’s impressive innings of 35 and Matiullah’s contribution of 22 runs further solidified Pakistan’s victory. This triumph secured Pakistan’s spot in the final of the World Blind Games cricket event, set to take place on 26th August at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground.

Pakistan’s journey to the final was marked by their earlier victory over India, Australia and now against England, establishing their prowess and determination in the tournament. As anticipation builds for the final, the cricket world eagerly awaits the second finalist team to be decided soon.

Around 20 local cigarette manufacturing companies have signed agreements with the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) for the implementation of the Track and Trace System at their manufacturing premises.

Highly placed officials told ProPakistani that the local units are ultimately ready to implement the system. The vacation of stay orders from the courts and deputation of Inland Revenue officials at the manufacturing premises of the local units has forced them to start implementation of the system at their factories.

In the absence of the stay orders, the FBR has aggressively pursued local units to implement the track and trace system. After the legal battle of 1-2 years with the local companies, the FBR has finally won and enforced the system at the premises of local companies.

The Track and Trace System is at different stages of implementation at the local cigarette manufacturing units. Almost all units have signed the agreements with the FBR and started implementation of the system. One company has fully implemented the system. Six local companies are engaged in the manual stamping process on cigarette packs. Some units have purchased applicators and others have started test runs at one production line of each unit.

However, all units within the jurisdiction of Azad Kashmir have obtained a stay order against the implementation of the said system, sources said.

The caretaker government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has reinstated the health card program. Spearheaded by Dr. Riyaz Anwar, the caretaker advisor to the Chief Minister (CM), the move follows productive negotiations with an insurance company, ultimately leading to the revival of the initiative.

Prompted by the CM’s directives, Dr. Anwar engaged with the insurance company to address the financial constraints plaguing the health card program. Successfully overcoming hurdles, these negotiations have now paved the way for the continuation of the health card. Within a week, the outstanding balance owed to the insurance company will be settled, as announced by Dr. Anwar.

Dr. Anwar emphasized that the restoration of the health card is a priority, ensuring free medical treatment for the residents of the province. He clarified that the suspension of the program was not due to the termination of services, but rather a temporary setback caused by financial challenges.

Acknowledging the need for enhancements, the supervising consultant mentioned ongoing efforts to refine the program’s procedures and streamline its operations. This renewed commitment to improving the health card aims to facilitate smoother healthcare access for the people of KP.

Echoing the positive outcome of the negotiations, the insurance company released an official statement affirming its dedication to reinstating the health card service. This move stands to benefit countless individuals in the province, underscoring the significance of accessible healthcare in the region.
