Jos Buttler Believes No International Cricket Should be Played During IPL

England's skipper Jos Buttler emphasized that international cricket fixtures should not overlap with the Indian Premier League (IPL). Despite asserting his commitment to playing for England, Buttler pointed out the challenges faced by players due to scheduling conflicts. Eight prominent English players, including Buttler himself, had to depart from the IPL before the play-offs to participate in a four-match series against Pakistan. This series is crucial preparation for the T20I World Cup in June. The players who had to leave IPL due to this schedule clash were Liam Livingstone, Sam Curran, Will Jacks, Reece Topley, Phil Salt, Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, and Buttler. Buttler's remarks highlighted the growing influence of the IPL on the international cricket calendar, 'It's my personal opinion that there shouldn't be any international cricket that clashes with the IPL.' 'I think that these games have been on the calendar for a long time. Of course, leading into a World Cup, your No.1 priority is playing fo r England and performing for England. I feel like this is the best preparation.' he concluded. The early exit of these key players from the IPL has sparked discussions about the need for a more synchronized international cricket calendar. The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) faces the challenge of balancing the players' participation in lucrative domestic leagues with their national team duties. The England captain's call for non-overlapping schedules aims to ensure that players can fulfill their commitments without compromising on preparation for critical international tournaments like the T20I World Cup. Butter also revealed that the ECB decided to call up all the players for the series against Pakistan so that they could get used to their specific rules in the team and by this decision, the IPL franchises lost a foreign player in equal proportion as no English player is playing the competition currently. England will face off Pakistan in the first match of the four-game T20I series at Headingley, Leeds today while their World Cup campaign will kickstart on June 4 against Scotland.

Pakistan Set to Appoint Australian Pitch Curator For ICC Champions Trophy

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to appoint Tony Hemming, an Australian curator with extensive experience in curating pitches for international events, as their new chief curator. The Australian curator, who has previously worked with FIFA and the Saudi Arabian Football Federation, brings a wealth of expertise in turf management and ground preparation. His notable contributions include the development of football grounds in Saudi Arabia. He will replace Agha Zahid who has been PCB's main curator since 2004 and has been part of the Chairman PCB Curators Committee for the last 20 years. Hemming's new role with the PCB will focus on preparing top-quality cricket pitches for three key venues such as National Bank Arena in Karachi, Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, and Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. These three venues are scheduled to host the ICC Champions Trophy in 2025, a mega-event that will see Pakistan welcome the world's best cricketing nations. Before this appointment, Hemming served as the Head Curator of the ICC Cricket Academy, where he honed his skills in creating and maintaining high-standard cricket pitches. The Australian curator's main job will be to train the local curators of Pakistan and ground staff according to the international standards of the game. His experience at the Academy, combined with his international portfolio, makes him a valuable asset for the PCB as they aim to deliver a successful tournament. The PCB's decision to bring in Hemming underscores their commitment to ensuring that the pitches for the Champions Trophy are of the highest quality, providing fair pitch conditions for all participating teams. As Pakistan gears up to host the ICC Champions Trophy for the first time since 2004, the inclusion of an expert like Hemming can prove to be the right move to showcase the country's capabilities in organizing major international cricket events. Pakistan will host the ninth edition of the ICC Champions Trophy in February-March next year with the tournament including eight-top ranked international men's national teams. Source: Pro Pakistani

Pacer Hasan Ali has been dropped from the Pakistan squad ahead of the first T20I against England in Leeds. The decision was made by the Pakistan team management to allow Hassan Ali to fulfill his commitments with Warwickshire County Cricket Club in England. Hasan Ali was initially included in the Pakistan squad as a cover for fast bowler Haris Rauf, who was recovering from a shoulder injury. However, with Rauf now declared fit, Hassan's presence in the squad was no longer necessary. Pakistani skipper, Babar Azam, confirmed Rauf's fitness status yesterday, providing reassurance about the fast bowler's availability for the upcoming series. He wrote, We've received clearance for Haris Rauf. He's available for this series. So, by the will of Almighty Allah, he will surely be seen in action in the series. Haris Rauf had missed the entire T20I series against Ireland due to his injury, whereas Hasan Ali had only one game. Pakistan emerged victorious in that series, winning 2-1 in the three-match T20I series aga inst Ireland, before heading to England for their next challenge. The four-match T20I series between Pakistan and England will start today at Leeds and will continue till May 30. The series is a crucial preparation for both teams ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Both teams, being the finalists of the previous T20 World Cup, will use this series to fine-tune their strategies and line-ups, as they are set to skip the warm-up matches for this year's mega event.

Wasim Akram Bashes English Players for Leaving Midway Through IPL

Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has criticized England players for opting out of the IPL playoffs to participate in a four-match T20 series against Pakistan ahead of the T20 World Cup in June. The former Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bowling coach's comments echo sentiments expressed by former Indian cricketers such as Irfan Pathan and Sunil Gavaskar, who have also condemned the move. While talking to an Indian media outlet, the Pakistani legend said, 'If you cut salaries, will it affect anything if your team doesn't win after reaching the playoffs? 'You've put in all the hard work and in the last hurdle, your boys leave because they have to play for the country. It's not fair.' Akram's criticism highlights the tight schedules between national commitments and lucrative franchise tournaments. The English player's decision to prioritize national duty over IPL commitments has sparked a debate within the cricket community. Jos Buttler and Michael Vaughan have defended the English players, arguing that nati onal duty should always be the priority for any international cricketer. Buttler emphasized the importance of preparing for the World Cup, while Vaughan suggested that the experience gained from the T20I series against Pakistan is invaluable for the players ahead of the showpiece event. However, Akram, Pathan, and Gavaskar argue that abandoning the IPL playoffs undermines the efforts of franchise teams and fans who have invested time plus resources throughout the tournament. They believe that once a commitment is made in the contract, it should be honored completely, especially at the crucial playoff stage. This controversy underscores the ongoing conflict between franchise leagues and international cricket, raising questions about the future of player commitments and the balancing act required by a cricketer to survive on the international stage. The first match of the four-game T20I series between England and Pakistan will take place at Headingley, Leeds, on May 22. The subsequent matches will take plac e in Birmingham on May 25, Cardiff on May 28, and 'The Oval' in London on May 30. Source: Pro Pakistani

In the fast-paced realm of Twenty20 cricket, where the game's pulse races to the beat of every ball bowled, Pakistan stands as a formidable force, known for its flair, unpredictability, and sheer brilliance on the field. Within the electrifying arena of the T20 World Cup, Pakistan's journey has been nothing short of exhilarating, marked by moments of triumph, heartbreak, and unparalleled skill. As the cricketing world gears up for yet another edition of the T20 World Cup, starting on June 2nd in New York and the West Indies, it's an opportune moment to reflect on Pakistan's illustrious history in the tournament. Let's have a look at Pakistan's 5 best wins in T20 World Cup History. 1. Pakistan vs Sri Lanka - 2009 Final The final itself holds a prestigious place in everyone's hearts, especially when it's a World Cup final. At a time when the country was mourning due to the ban on cricket in Pakistan following the attack on the Sri Lankan team during their tour, the unity and triumph of the Pakistani team in winning the tournament brought joy to everyone's faces. Additionally, the Pakistani team performed exceptionally well throughout the tournament. Despite the burden of reaching the final in 2007 and coming close to victory but losing in the last over, the team managed to overcome this pressure. Shahid Afridi's remarkable performance was pivotal in reaching the final and eventually winning it, under the excellent leadership of Younis Khan. In the final match at Lord's, London, Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat first. Mohammad Amir bowled the first over, and Dilshan's mistimed scoop resulted in an early wicket. Abdul Razzaq's delivery saw Jehan Mubarak departing, leaving Sri Lanka struggling at 2 for 2. Despite Sanath Jayasuriya's brief stabilizing innings, wickets fell at regular intervals, with Shahid Afridi's crucial wicket of Isuru Udana being a highlight. Sangakkara and Chamara Silva added some runs, but Sri Lanka finished at 138/6 from their 20 overs. Pakistan's innings began strongly with Kamr an Akmal and Shahzaib Hasan contributing a solid opening partnership of 48 runs. Despite Akmal's dismissal, Pakistan comfortably chased down the target in 18.4 overs, with Shahid Afridi steering the team to victory. Afridi's match-winning performance earned him the Man of the Match award. Pakistan's victory, cheered on by enthusiastic fans from England's Pakistani communities, marked a significant milestone, their first world title since Imran Khan's triumphant 1992 World Cup campaign. 2. Pakistan vs India - 2021 Dubai The Pakistan vs India match is the marquee event of any ICC tournament. The two arch-rivals have a rich off-field history, which spices things up when it comes to cricket. Speaking of overall stats, Pakistan may have more wins over India, but in ICC tournaments, India holds the upper hand. Specifically, in World Cup matches, whether T20I or ODI, Pakistan has won only one match against India. And which match is that? Yes, you're right - it's the India vs Pakistan group-stage match in 2022 at the packed Dubai International Stadium. It was the last World Cup for Kohli as skipper and the first for Babar. Both captains came out for the toss, and Pakistan won, electing to field first. Shaheen Afridi bowled a fantastic first spell, getting the early wickets of India's experienced openers Rohit and KL Rahul. Hasan also chipped in by dismissing Surya Kumar Yadav. Kohli kept scoring, but then Shadab Khan came in and removed Pant. Wickets kept falling, and Pakistan restricted India to 151 runs. It was a challenging total, but Babar and Rizwan's unbeaten partnership led Pakistan to a historic victory by 10 wickets. Shaheen Afridi's stellar performance earned him the Player of the Match award. This match marked the 200th international cricket encounter between India and Pakistan and was the first time in 13 attempts that Pakistan had beaten India in either a Cricket World Cup or T20 World Cup match. Additionally, it was the first time that India had lost by 10 wickets in T20Is. 3. Australia vs Pakistan - 2007 Super 8s The third-best match, in my opinion, was the 2007 ICC World Twenty20 encounter between Australia and Pakistan. It took place on Tuesday, September 18, 2007, at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa. Pakistan secured a memorable victory over Australia by six wickets during the Super 8 stage of the tournament. Australia faced early setbacks, with Matthew Hayden getting caught for just one run in the first over. Adam Gilchrist contributed 24 runs before being dismissed in the fourth over. Despite a 48-run partnership between Andrew Symonds and Ricky Ponting, Shahid Afridi bowled Symonds for 29 runs, and Mohammad Hafeez bowled Ponting, who scored 27. Michael Hussey (37) and Brad Hodge (36) then built a partnership of 63 runs, helping Australia reach a total of 164-7. Sohail Tanvir played a key role for Pakistan, taking 3 wickets for 31 runs. In reply, Pakistan faced a challenging situation, losing four wickets for just 46 runs in the seventh over as Australia's bowlers made crucial breakthroughs. Stuart Clark claimed three wickets, dismissing Imran Nazir, Mohammad Hafeez, and Younis Khan cheaply, while Salman Butt fell lbw to Mitchell Johnson. However, Shoaib Malik (52 not out) and Misbah-ul-Haq (66 not out) led a remarkable comeback, guiding Pakistan to victory and securing a likely spot in the semi-finals. 4. Pakistan vs South Africa - 2022 SCG The fourth-best match, in my opinion, was Pakistan vs South Africa encounter, the 36th match of Group 2 at Sydney during the T20 World Cup on November 3, 2022. Pakistan was on the brink of elimination from the World Cup after suffering two early losses against India and Zimbabwe. They had only managed one win before this match, against the Netherlands, and desperately needed a victory to keep their tournament hopes alive. It's worth noting that this was the same tournament where Pakistan reached the final. In this crucial match, the world was introduced to a new talent named Mohammad Haris, who showed great intent at the top of the order. Contributions from Iftikhar and Shadab in the latter stages of the innings helped Pakistan post a promising total. However, rain intervened and reduced the match to 14 overs per side. Despite the weather interruption, Pakistan emerged victorious with a strong all-round performance, particularly from Shadab Khan. 5. Pakistan vs South Africa - 2010 The fifth best match, in my opinion, was when Pakistan faced South Africa at Beausejour Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia in 2010 T20 World Cup. Pakistan posted a total of 148/7 in their allotted 20 overs, with Umar Akmal being the standout performer, scoring 51 runs off 33 balls. Charl Langeveldt starred for South Africa with the ball, claiming 4 wickets for 19 runs in his 4 overs. In reply, South Africa managed to score 137/7 in their 20 overs, with AB de Villiers contributing 53 runs off 41 balls. Saeed Ajmal was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan, taking 4 wickets for 26 runs in his 4 overs. Pakistan emerged victorious by 11 runs. This match was crucial for P akistan as it marked the last match of the league stage. Pakistan had yet to secure a win in the tournament, and winning this match put them in contention to qualify for the semi-finals. Pakistan's victory, coupled with England's win over New Zealand in another match, ensured Pakistan's qualification for the semi-finals. However, despite reaching the semi-finals, the defending champions couldn't secure a spot in the finals. What do you think? What would be your 5 best Pakistan wins in T20 World Cup?
