  1. Forty contracted players of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have handed a letter to the board indicating that they do not wish to travel to Lahore for the last T20I against Pakistan scheduled for later this month. The letter signed by the entire current squad and contracted players back home doesn't directly say that they do not want to go to Pakistan, but has requested the board to consider a venue change. "SLC will have a quick chat to the players very soon. We don't intend to disturb them in middle of a series, but we are left with no option but to address the issue. The ICC also will meet the players on Saturday to brief them about the situation in Lahore," an SLC source told Cricbuzz. All-rounder Thisara Perera is believed to have not signed the letter as he was part of the World XI side that played three-T20I series in Lahore last month. International cricket was pulled out of Pakistan after the Sri Lankan team bus came under a terrorist attack in 2009, outisde Gadaffi Stadium in Lahore, injuring several players and support staff. There is still a possibility that the Lahore game could be played if SLC decides to send a second string team. "We are looking at all possibilities. Pakistan has been one our closest allies and we don't want to let them down," the source added. Source - cricbuz

  3. Sri Lanka's cricketers refuse to tour Pakistan

    Just In Upul Tharanga has pulled out of pak tour
  4. Bangladesh won the toss and are batting first 102/2 in 22.1 overs Pretty good start.
  5. Exactly and watch their fans explode on social media
  6. India vs New Zealand 2017

    In ODIs I think it's gonna be a clean sweep for us. NZ traditional always played poorly in Odis, in India. I think the last series was the closest they have ever competed with us. Im worried about t20s though, we have never beaten them, ever.
  7. Get Washington Sundar into Indian LOI team already

    But, can he clear the YoYo test
  8. IND ODI Sqaud for NZ series announced : Rahul Shami and Umesh out

    Then he will be treated like the other rahul... Rahul Sharma
  9. Combined Indo Pak All Time ODI Team

    I thought inzi made up with his batting more than he used to cost in the field. Also im a firm believer than Inzi wasn't as slow a runner as he was made out to be. He was more of a poor judge of runs which used to result in runouts

  12. SA cruising to victory here De kock
  13. Same place where you went to learn english.
  14. Ravindra Jadeja deserves a Top 6 slot

    Vinay Kumar has FC bowlin avg of 23.53, much better than mohammad shami, Does that make him a better bowler? FC stats are not everything, players like Pandya and others have dismal FC record yet they are performing better at Intnl stage.
  15. 195/3 in 38 overs MushPhukr on 75
  16. Good 50 run partnership between MushFkr and Shakib. 120/2 in 25.
  17. India A vs New Zealand A, 5th unofficial ODI

    Pantso far his List A performances have been listless. Battin avg in the low 20s. So disappointing.
  18. The cricketing structure is set to change with the International Cricket Council approving Test Championship and One-Day International League, David Richardson, the ICC chief executive, confirmed in Auckland on Friday (October 13) after the governing body's meeting. In the Test Championship, the top nine teams will play six series - three at home and three away - and it'll be put in place after the 2019 World Cup. The teams will be required to play at least two Tests while it can be expanded to five Tests in a series as well. The Test Championship, however, won't include Zimbabwe, Afghanistan and Ireland. In the ODI league, that's set to be put in place in 2020-21 cycle, will have 13 teams - the 12 Full Members and the winner of the ICC World Cricket League Championship. The teams will battle it out to earn direct qualifications for the World Cup. The first ODI league will first have a two-year cycle ahead of the 2023 World Cup. However, it'll be changed to a three-year cycle with teams battling out in eight series with a maximum of three ODIs in one series. Source- cricbuzz
  19. IND ODI Sqaud for NZ series announced : Rahul Shami and Umesh out

    Bhuvi n Bunrah became our first choice, 'cause Shami got injured in first place. A fully fit shami should walk in to this xi. Bumrah for all his death bowlin prowess is not that good while opening the bowling and Bhuvi has his good n bad days as far as wicket taking is concerned. Shami is the only bowler who has taken wickets consistently since he made his debut. Tell me how many bowlers we have or have ever had with a bowling avg of 25? I get that we need to conserve him for test matches but that doesn't mean he should be out of the ODI picture completely, after just 1 match. Ideally all 3 should be playing.
  20. IND ODI Sqaud for NZ series announced : Rahul Shami and Umesh out

    Such a shame, we complain about not having enough top class bowlers and then drop someone who has 90+ wickets in about 50 matches, after giving him just one ODI
