  1. Pakistani teenager Raza conducts coin toss in Brazil-Costa Rica game Pakistani teenager Ahmed Raza on Friday conducted the coin toss for the game between Brazil and Costa Rica. This marks the first time a Pakistani was present on the pitch of a FIFA World Cup match in an official capacity. https://tribune.com.pk/story/1740006/7-pakistani-teenager-raza-conducts-coin-toss-brazil-costa-rica-game/
  2. On This Day a year ago... Pakistan won #CT17! #cricket #pakistan #champions#championstrophy #2017 #lovecricket Can we share ideas about what do you think from where India went wrong on that day?
  3. Pakistan target series win Quotes "It was very clear where we needed to improve from last week. We've had some good preparation, the guys have really worked hard and now it's just doing it, going out and proving a point, putting a really strong performance in as a group and showing some pride in the badge.'" Joe Root expects a response from his team after their humiliation at Lord's "We have to forget Lord's and move on to this now. If we want to move ahead as a team we have to forget our wins. We did well, we enjoyed it for two days, but now we're here." Sarfraz Ahmed on keep focus Big Picture On an overcast Tuesday afternoon just over two weeks ago in Malahide, Pakistan found themselves three wickets down for 14, still needing 146 more to prevent Ireland becoming the first team since 1877 to win their maiden Test match. With a worrying recent history of fourth-innings implosions, Pakistan looked set for a defeat so ignoble it would define their time on British shores this tour, and highlight the malaise of their Test team since, indeed, the last time they were in the UK just under two years ago. Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam carried them through that ordeal, and since then, the post-mortems of sharp declines in Test fortunes are suddenly the opposition's problems. The series against England began with two Test teams that had, with varying degrees of rapidity, gone from being the best in the world to distinctly mediocre. Pakistan's - as you would expect - was a more expeditious, less explicable downturn, albeit one hastened by the retirement of two of their greatest batsmen, Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq, while England's arguably has reasons stretching back for a decade: from cricket no longer being on free-to-air TV, to the marginalisation of the County Championship, to their well-documented struggles in replacing Andrew Strauss and Graeme Swann, not to mention Kevin Pietersen and Andy Flower. But the manner of England's decimation at Lord's - their fifth defeat in 12 Tests at that holiest of grounds, where previously they had not lost since 2005 - may be the jolt the home side need to assess how far they've fallen. In last week's Test, England were out-thought by a team that isn't exactly renowned for its meticulous planning, out-fielded by an outfit that has never been a torch-bearer in that regard, and out-batted by a group whose susceptibility to the moving ball is well-documented. After all that, it was hardly a surprise that Pakistan out-bowled them, too. The dismissiveness, almost derisive, with which Sarfraz Ahmed's young team put England away seems to have set alarm bells ringing at the ECB, with an urgency that wasn't in evidence even in the wake of a 4-0 drubbing in the Ashes earlier this year. As a result, Pakistan find themselves in the unfamiliar position of being the steady clinical team from which no drama is expected, while England have faced all manner of uncertainty over the past few days. The only blot on a perfect Test at Lord's for Pakistan was the loss of Babar to a wrist fracture, while Joe Root's men have been left to contend with changes in strategy and personnel if they are to avoid a first home series loss to Pakistan in 22 years. Form guide England LDLLD Pakistan WWLLW Team news As if England didn't have plenty to ponder already, Ben Stokes is a serious doubt with a hamstring injury, with a late decision expected before the toss. Teenage prodigy Sam Curran has been brought in as cover. Chris Woakes's chances of starting in Stokes' absence look good, particularly given his all-round credentials, and though Dom Bess had an indifferent debut, it is unlikely that England will risk starting the Test without a specialist spinner. As for the batting department, Stoneman has been left out, with Jennings returning to partner Alastair Cook at the top of the order. England (probable) 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Keaton Jennings, 3 Joe Root (capt), 4 Dawid Malan, 5 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 6 Ben Stokes/Chris Woakes, 7 Jos Buttler, 8 Mark Wood, 9 Dom Bess, 10 Stuart Broad, 11 James Anderson It is much more straightforward for Pakistan. With Babar Azam out of the side, Usman Salahuddin is set to make his debut at Leeds tomorrow. No other changes are expected. Pakistan 1 Azhar Ali, 2 Imam-ul-Haq, 3 Haris Sohail, 4 Asad Shafiq, 5 Usman Salahuddin, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Shadab Khan, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Hasan Ali, 11 Mohammad Abbas http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/18025/preview/1119536/england-vs-pakistan-2nd-test-pakistan-tour-of-ireland-2018/
  4. Pakistan face England at Lord’s Lord´s, London, May 23, 2018: England´s Joe Root and Pakistan´s Sarfraz Ahmed pose with England vs Pakistan Test series trophy. Photo: Action Images via Reuters Big Picture The teams were jostling for the No. 1 Test ranking. Now they are battling mid-table mediocrity. Alastair Cook and Misbah-ul-Haq were the captains. Now it's Joe Root and Sarfraz Ahmed. Younis Khan was jumping around the crease (and scoring a double century). Now Pakistan are trying to build a new middle order. It's been less than two years since England and Pakistan last met for a Test series and much has changed. The latest series, which starts at Lord's before continuing to Headingley, is a meeting of teams in various states of flux. England are still trying to find solutions to a number of familiar problem areas while Pakistan have lost three of their five series since taking the No. 1 spot shortly after the 2016 contest concluded with their series-levelling victory at The Oval. Pakistan are missing three men who were vital to that 2-2 scoreline - Misbah, Younis and the injured Yasir Shah - and another, Wahab Riaz, who could have added experience if not always direction with the ball. Their batting looks on the callow side and they almost came a cropper against Ireland, with much resting on Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq finding their touch quickly in a short series. With the ball, however, they will, as so often, remain a threat. Quite how much Test cricket Mohammad Amir will play remains to be seen but he bowled beautifully in Ireland and if his team-mates can catch he could run through a line-up. Mohammad Abbas will be a handful if there is any nibble on offer while Shadab Khan has immense promise and also the advantage of being new to England. For England there are subplots aplenty at the beginning of a second season in charge for Root. His own position (in the batting order, not the captaincy) is one talking point - can he settle at No. 3? - which is part of a larger reshuffle of the order. Will the punt on Jos Buttler at No. 7 pay dividends or just muddy the water more? Can Dom Bess take the most of an unexpected chance? Is Mark Stoneman facing his last chance? Can Alastair Cook go again as a Test batsman? Is there life beyond James Anderson and Stuart Broad? That's a lot of questions. Of late, England's Test side haven't provided a whole lot of new answers. This season needs to change that. Team news England's one decision is between Chris Woakes and Mark Wood for the final pace-bowling slot. Wood was recalled in Christchurch at the end of March and provides extra pace. Woakes provides more with the bat. There will be a debut for 20-year-old offspinner Dom Bess. Pakistan 1 Azhar Ali, 2 Imam-ul-Haq, 3 Haris Sohail, 4 Asad Shafiq, 5 Babar Azam, 6 Sarfraz Ahmed (capt & wk), 7 Shadab Khan, 8 Faheem Ashraf, 9 Mohammad Amir, 10 Rahat Ali/Hasan Ali, 11 Mohammad Abbas England 1 Alastair Cook, 2 Mark Stoneman, 3 Joe Root (capt), 4 Dawid Malan, 5 Jonny Bairstow (wk), 6 Ben Stokes, 7 Jos Buttler, 8 Mark Wood/Chris Woakes, 9 Dom Bess, 10 Stuart Broad, 11 James Anderson http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/23581673/england-pakistan-looking-forge-new-test-identity-mid-table-battle
  5. Pakistan remain No1 T20I team in world Our Staff Reporter May 03, 2018 LAHORE - Pakistan remained the No.1 team in the ICC T20I Men’s Team Rankings, continuing to hold a four-point lead over second-placed Australia, with India at No.3 after gaining two points in the latest update, said an ICC statement issued on Wednesday. There were, in fact, no changes in the top seven positions, but the big development was down at No8, where Afghanistan are the new entrants. Sri Lanka, earlier ranked eighth, have slipped to ninth after losing four points following the update, which took the 2014-15 season out of the equation and weighted results from 2015-16 and 2016-17 at 50 per cent. While Sri Lanka lost ground, Afghanistan gained a point to move up. Above them, there were no changes in points for Pakistan (130) and Australia (126), though India, England, South Africa and the Windies gained two, one, three and three points respectively. Bangladesh are in 10th place, followed by Scotland, Zimbabwe, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong, Oman and Ireland. Behind Ireland, who have 33 points, are Nepal, but they have played just four games and need to play one more before being ranked. Meanwhile, England, who last topped the ODI rankings in January 2013 have gained eight points and moved to 125 points. India, who were at the top before the update, have lost a solitary point and are in second place with a total of 122 points. South Africa, who were second, have dropped down to third place after losing four points, from 117 to 113, leaving them nine points. England have overtaken India to seize the top spot in the ICC ODI Team Rankings following the annual update while Nepal have rejoined the T20I ratings but will need to play one more match before they are ranked on the ICC T20I Rankings. England’s rise up the table is largely because of a forgettable 2014-15 season which saw them winning only seven out of 25 ODIs against other Full Members. The 2014-15 season has been dropped from the latest calculations while those from the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons are weighted at 50 per cent. England, who last topped the ODI rankings in January 2013 have gained eight points and moved to 125 points. India, who were at the top before the update, have lost a solitary point and are in second place with a total of 122 points. South Africa, who were second, have dropped down to third place after losing four points, from 117 to 113, leaving them nine points adrift of India and only one point ahead of fourth- placed New Zealand. The remaining places remain unchanged, meaning that the current top 10 ranked sides are the ones who will be playing in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. However, there have been some significant changes in points. World champions Australia have lost eight points to go down to 104 in fifth position and are only two points ahead of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 winners Pakistan, who have gained six points. In other changes, Bangladesh (93 points) have gained three points, Sri Lanka (77) have lost seven points, the Windies (69) have lost five points, Afghanistan (63) have gained five points, Zimbabwe (55) have gained four points and 12th-placed Ireland (38) have lost three points. ICC T20I Team Rankings Rank Team Points 1 Pakistan 130 2 Australia 126 3 India 123 4 New Zealand 116 5 England 115 6 South Africa 114 7 Windies 114 8 Afghanistan 87 9 Sri Lanka 85 10 Bangladesh 75 11 Scotland 66 12 Zimbabwe 58 https://nation.com.pk/03-May-2018/pakistan-remain-no1-t20i-team-in-world?show=previe?version=amp
  6. source A 21-year-old journalist is making headlines in Pakistan by becoming the country's first transgender news anchor. Pakistan's social networks were abuzz following Marvia Malik's first on-air appearance on the March 23 and in the days since she's gone viral across Facebook and Twitter, with many lauding the move as progress for transgender rights in Pakistan. Malik, a trainee anchor at Lahore-based channel Kohenoor News, is pleased with the attention that she's received but insists more needs to be done when it comes to improving the lives of Pakistan's transgender community. A graduate of journalism from Punjab University, Malik told CNN she applied for the position since she wanted to prove that people from the transgender community "are capable of any job, and can do anything they want." "I want to show the country that we are more than objects of ridicule ... that we are also human," she said. Props to the Pakistani channel for being progressive...hopefully jihadis don't get to her

    Combined Indo Pak All Time ODI Team

    Just for fun, since the group is dull today! So, here's my dream Indo-Pak combined ODI team... Mind you, I am going without stats right now. And I am considering players who I have seen. Here's my list - Sachin Viru Kohli Saeed Anwar Yuvraj Dhoni Wasim Akram Kumble Saqlain Mushtaq Waqar Shoaib 12th and 13th players- Kapil Ddev Imran Khan The reason why Kapil and Imran dont make it to the team is because the batting and bowling is so strong, we dont need outdated players. More importantly, Imran was too slow as a batsman to be accomodated in the present ODI scenario, Kapil has a strong chance of replacing Yuvi or Saeed. I do believe this has to be almost the best combined team ever for ODI. Please share your teams and your thoughts!

  16. Dear Indians, I visited your country this winter with my family. I enjoyed New Delhi very much; in fact, I felt there like home. I felt something very common, but It's hard to explain. Maybe what I enjoyed the most, especially in other smaller cities, is the conservation of traditional values. And I'm know what I'm talking about because in our country we struggle to keep our values safe because they get erazed from the face of the Earth by the power of globalization. It's an phenomenon that kill sa nation's history and spirit. I read and I hear much critics about traditionalism in India: much "specialists" think that it draws the country back. But in my opinion, the Indian spirit is still powerful to show that tradition is a strong and a wise way to build a great country. The most common point between India and Russia now, is the struggle for the national spirit. This video shows how our government tries to rebuild all the lost traditions with powerful Putin's speeches (it's translated, and you might be interested): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cp6AmfjdVHI&t=4s Here is my question: What are the main drawbacks of tradionalism in India and am I wrong thinking that Indian values should be defended?
