PAKISTAN SPIN ATTACK THREAT THE ENGLAND CRICKET TEAM



England face the worrying prospect of overcoming Pakistan's new-look spin line-up as the Ashes winners attempt to reverse the Test whitewash they suffered last time around toward the dry pitches of the Uae.
At the time they met inside the UAE in 2012, Pakistan annihilated what was then a world number one Test team 3-0, thanks to spinners saeed ajmal (24 wickets) and Abdul Rehman (19 wickets).
As they simply begin a three-match Test series in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, Pakistan will rely on precisely the same weapon -- but in the hands of leg-spinners yasir shah and Zulfiqar Babar, who have taken over from Ajmal and Rehman.
England captain cook admits the magnitude of his team's task.
"I think they have played six or seven series and haven't lost a series. That shows what is before us. The great thing in Test cricket is attempting to succeed far from home. It's becoming more difficult and harder," said Cook, one of four survivors considering the 2012 series.
Ajmal, whose controversial bowling action was questioned around the time of 2012, was suspended a year ago. He was cleared after adopting a brand new style but seems to own lost his wicket-taking ability, leaving his career within the balance.
"I don't think (Ajmal's absence) weakens or strengthens them, anyway. It's always whenever you play Pakistan, India or Sri Lanka, spin plays a role," Cook said.
- Outstanding start -
Pakistan skipper misbah is confident Shah will fill the void, having led the nation to series wins over Australia in Abu Dhabi last year and in Sri Lanka three months period ago.
"The way Yasir is bowling he is a threat to any team," said Misbah, who can retire by the end of the series. "But it's not only about our spinners. It's also about our fast bowlers plus the way we bat against their spinners."
Cook admitted Shah poses various challenges.
"He has an excellent begin to his Test career," said Cook. "Sixty wickets in ten games is a great effort and obviously Saeed was a great bowler as well as."
Pakistan's batting will involve Younis Khan, Misbah and sarfraz, who have been in great form over the last twelve months.
Younis amassed 468 runs against Australia and hit a match-winning 171 not out in Pakistan's last Test in Sri Lanka, leaving him just 19 behind to overtake Pakistan's highest tally of 8,832 set by Javed Miandad.
Pakistan will certainly be without key batsman azhar ali who was excluded due to a foot infection, a physical injury which forced him to miss the third and final one-dayer against Zimbabwe last week.
His place is likely to go to malick, who has not played a Test for five years.
Pakistan have been forced to participate with the UAE from security fears back home though have never lost a sequence here, winning four and drawing three.
England's answer to Pakistan's spin challenge would probably be underwhelming. Leg-spinner Adil Rashid is set to make his Test debut, six years after playing his first one-day international.
Moeen Ali is favourite to play as opener in a makeshift arrangement, with additional duties of bowling off-spin, despite never having opened the innings even in a first-class match.
If that happens, Moeen will probably be Cook's seventh partner since strauss retired in 2012.
Joe Root and stokes -- England's leading performers in the bat -- will probably be tested against quality spin.
Dubai will host the second Test (October 22-26), with the final match in Sharjah (November 1-5).

duminy overlaps rohit's number



duminy's batting heroics secured South Africa a thrilling seven-wicket victory in the initial Twenty20 International despite Indian opener rohit burnishing his limited overs reputation with a blistering century on Friday.


Needing 10 runs from the last over chasing a 200-run victory target, Duminy's seventh six tied the contest before he took a single to seal victory with two balls available and place 1-0 up in the three-match series.
Duminy remained unbeaten on 68 off 34 balls, frustrating India who rode Sharma's century to post a commanding 199-5 at the most picturesque cricket stadiums on earth.
Like the only batsman with two ODI double centuries to his name, Sharma blasted 106 off 66 balls, highest score by an Indian within a Twenty20 International, as the hosts threatened beyond the 200-mark at one stage.
After opening partner dhawan perished in his half-hearted pursuit of a non-existent second run, Sharma coupled with kohli (43) to put the foundation for a big total.
The duo added 138 runs, an India record, in 12.2 overs and the elegant Sharma belted five sixes and 12 boundaries scintillating knock.
The Mumbai batsman stated his century clobbering Marchant de Lange for a six to get the next Indian, after team mate raina, to register one-hundred in every three formats along the game.
ab de villiers (51) and hashim amle (36) led South Africa's robust reply utilizing a breezy 77-run opening stand before falling in quick succession.
At 95-3, South Africa looked in trouble but Duminy and Farhaan Behardien (32 not out) refused to perform within the towel.
Duminy hit spinner Axar Patel for 3 successive sixes within the 16th over to turn the match on its head and stayed put up to the end to get the visitors house in a man-of-the-match winning performance.
Cuttack hosts the second Twenty20 International on Monday.

West Indies cannot be eligible for 2017 Champions Trophy


The declining fortunes of West Indies cricket hit an important low on Wednesday when the Caribbean team failed to qualifying for the 2017 Champions Trophy in England.
Limited to the world's top eight-ranked sides, the West Indies missed upon the lucrative event after slumping to ninth place on Wednesday's cut-off date.
Their failure to qualify marks the first time the West Indies will surely be missing from any of cricket's three big limited-overs events -- the 50-overs World Cup, the Champions Trophy and the Twenty20 World Cup.
West Indies are among just three teams to acquire captured all three titles, winning the 50-over World Cup in 1975 and 1979, the Champions Trophy in 2004 and the Twenty20 World Cup in 2012, though have fallen on tough time.
When the most dominant force in world cricket, West Indies have struggled in the recent past, affected by chaotic mismanagement and rows over player contracts.
Last year, West Indies abandoned their planned tour of India and just 48 hours ago, they suspended coach Phil Simmons after he criticised the selection policy for next month's tour to Sri Lanka.
Their spot in the 2017 Champions Trophy was effectively taken by Bangladesh, whose last appearance at the tournament was in 2006, although they finished seventh within the rankings, just just before Pakistan.
Australia, India, South Africa, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and Pakistan also qualified, in addition to host-nation England, who were automatically granted a destination.
The 2017 Champions Trophy is going to take place from June 1-18, with the eight qualified teams separated into two pools of four, and of course the top two from each group advancing to the knock-out phase.

kohli may lose his t20 number one rank in th upcoming south africa - india series | Virat Kohli could lose his T20I no.1 rank in the upcoming India-South Africa series


 

India’s Virat Kohli will be defending his ICC Twenty20 international number-one batting position in the upcoming India versus South Africa three-match series. The top-order batsman had moved ahead of Australia’s Aaron Finch, who had slipped to second after missing his side’s T20I against England in Cardiff.
Finch is just seven points behind Kohli and if Kohli wants to retain the top spot, the Test captain of India will have to perform strongly in the series.
The South African T20 captain Faf du Plessis will also be targeting an improvement in his batting ranking. Du Plessis is currently in the fourth position and trails England’s Alex Hales by 47 points.
Other top-ranked batsmen to feature in the forthcoming series include Suresh Raina (11th), JP Duminy (16th), Quinton de Kock (22nd), Hashim Amla (24th), David Miller (31st), MS Dhoni (33rd) and AB de Villiers (39th).
India’s in-form off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin will be the highest-ranked bowler from either side. The 29-year-old from Chennai is ranked fourth and has Sri Lanka’s third-ranked Sachithra Senanayake firmly within his sights.
For South Africa, leggie Imran Tahir is the highest-ranked bowler in 12th position and will be looking to break into the top 10 for the first time in his career with some impressive performances in the series. He trails Sri Lanka’s 10th-ranked Nuwan Kulasekara by 19 points.
Other bowlers aiming to make progress include Bhuvneshwar Kumar (35th), Kyle Abbott (44th), Harbhajan Singh (49th) and Duminy (60th). Duminy (7th) and Kohli (14th) are their sides’ highest-ranked all-rounders with the list headed by Bangladesh’s Shakib Al Hasan.

AUSTRALIA AND BANGLADESH BOTH ARE HOPE THAT TOUR WILL HAPPEN | Cricket-Australia and Bangladesh hopeful cricket tour will proceed

MELBOURNE, Sept 27 (Reuters) - Cricket Australia (CA) is sending its own security expert to Bangladesh to determine whether or not it is safe for the Australian team to proceed with its planned tour.
The Australian team has delayed its departure to Bangladesh after being warned by its government that there was a potential security risk from militants.
Australia and Bangladesh cricket officials are both hopeful the tour will still go ahead and are in talks about safety arrangements.
"Our position is that we want the tour to go ahead as planned," CA Chief Executive James Sutherland told a news conference on Sunday.
"This has obviously come very suddenly and we needed to make this response.
"Our preferred position is to continue the tour but the safety and security of our players and staff is the absolute priority."
Sutherland said CA's head of security Sean Carroll was on his way to Bangladesh and would report back after meeting with local officials and assessing the risk.
"The response at this stage is very much to get our head of security on the ground," Sutherland said.
"Meetings will commence on Monday. We'll have a much better understanding there. It's just one step at a time at the moment."
The Australians delayed their planned departure after Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) issued a warning on Friday that militants in Bangladesh could be planning an attack on tourists.
Bangladesh Cricket Board Chief Executive Nizam Uddin Chowdhury released a statement saying he understood Australia's concern but was sure the team would be safe and the tour would go ahead.
"There is no alarm regarding security as far as we are concerned and we have taken the opinion of all relevant agencies because safety of the Australian team is our priority, as it is with all visiting teams to Bangladesh," he said.
"The CA has stated its commitment to the series already in a media release and we are confident that the tour will commence with minimum delay."
Australia has not played a test match in Bangladesh for a decade but were scheduled to play back-to-back tests in Chittagong and Dhaka in October. (Reporting by Julian Linden; editing by Sudipto Ganguly)

ICC CONTINUED BAN ON KAUSHAL FOR DOSRA

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday announced that Sri Lanka off-spinner Tharindu Kaushal has been banned from bowling the Doosra delivery in international cricket due to an illegal action.

He is, however, permitted to bowl his stock delivery (off-break) following an independent assessment of his action held at the Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai earlier this month.

"The results showed that the level of elbow extension measured for all deliveries bowled was well within the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under the ICC regulations,' an ICC statement said.

"However, the assessment also revealed that Kaushal's Doosra was found to exceed the 15-degree level of tolerance and it should no longer be bowled in international cricket."

Kaushal will be sanctioned against if he bowls Doosra again in an international match, the ICC statement added.

He has featured in 24 Tests, taking 24 wickets, and an ODI for his country.

TOP 5 BOWLERS TO WATCHOUT IN ASHES 2015 AUS VS ENG

TOP 5 BOWLERS TO WATCHOUT IN ASHES 2015 AUS VS ENG

 

Mitchell Johnson

 
bowler to watch in ashes 2015

He was the tormentor-in-chief for England last year, a series which triggered the downfall of the English team. His intimidating pace was too hot to handle for the Poms and his accurate line and length made him an even more lethal weapon. While the Aussies would be expecting an encore from their champion speedster, it is yet to be seen whether Johnson can repeat his performance from the last Ashes series, a tournament where he scalped 37 wickets 

James Anderson

james anderson bowler to watch in ashes 2015
 Despite being rated as one of the premier bowlers in modern day cricket, Anderson has failed to live upto the expectations as a result of inconsistency. When in full rhythm, Anderson is a treat to watch and England will have massive expectations from their speedster. The 32-year-old went past 400 Test wickets in May this year and the team management would want him to add plenty of more wickets to his kitty. How England will perform against Australia will depend a lot on the way Anderson will bowl.

Mitchell Starc

fast bowler to watch in ashes 2015 aus vs eng
 He wasn't as deadly as Mitchell Johnson in the previous Ashes, but without a doublt, Strarc has been the most improved pacer in the last one year. Such has been his form that his senior compatriot Johnson was forced to take a back seat as he continued to take wickets. If England have to win back some pride for the fans, they will have to play Starc really really well.

Mark Wood

fresher to watchout in ashes 2015 aus vs eng
Despite having played just two Tests so far, Wood is being hailed as one of the dangerous bowlers to watch out for in the series. Ever since he made his debut against the Kiwis earlier this year, he has won praises from the stalwarts with his ability to reverse swing the ball by pitching it up. He picked nine wickets in the two-match Test series against New Zealand and it's a golden opportunity for the youngster to become England's hero by helping them regain the Ashes.

Josh Hazlewood

looking good for ashes 2015 aus vs eng
 He might be new into the world class Australian set up, but Hazlewood is a bowler who makes life miserable for the best of the batsmen with his impeccable line and length. He already has 24 wickets to his name from 5 Tests, but considering the fact that he is being compared with the legendary Glenn McGrath, the 24-year-old will have to earn a name for himself by shining in an Ashes series.
