Did you see Shoaib Malik flat-bat his own stumps like an absolute gimboid?

Shoaib Malik out hit wicket (via Sky Sports) You’d have to say that England chasing down 341 at Trent Bridge is no longer newsworthy. (We swear they’re better at chasing 350 than 200 by this point). That leaves us with this: Shoaib Malik flat-batting his own stumps like an absolute gimboid. As dismissals go, it was sub-village. If we had to place it on the hierarchy, we’d have it down as a pissed-up-beach-cricket way to get out. All the same, we’re surprised it doesn’t hap...

England are a good one-day bowling side and if you think otherwise, you’re living in the past

Skyer (via ECB YouTube) England and Pakistan are warming up for the World Cup. In the third match of the series, Pakistan batted first. They started off scoring at a run a ball, then picked it up to almost seven an over through the middle phase of their innings, then lifted that again to 9.4 an over for the final ten overs. “What a beautifully-paced innings,” said someone who still doesn’t get it. “Well that was a massively inefficient way of going about things,” said E...

Toxy Cowasjee Steps Down as Editor of Hamazor After 17 years

Earlier this year Toxy Cowasjee, the editor of the Hamazor magazine reached out to me asking if I would cover a local NYC event for her to go in the next issue of Hamazor. I, of course said yes. You can’t say no to Toxy. Little did I realize that this article would be in the very last issue of Hamazor that Toxy was going to be putting out as editor. It is with sadness that I read in her editorial of the 1st issue of 2019 that she will be stepping down as the editor of Hamazor. For as long as I ...

Two decades from now, Pakistan will have no Parsis

Just before sunset, five elderly men leave their homes in the Cyrus Minwalla Colony, the oldest settlement of Karachi’s Parsis, and sit themselves down on cement benches placed alongside a pavement. None of them get into a conversation: two of them read the day’s newspapers, two others seem lost in thought, and the fifth stares at the structure on the opposite side of the boulevard, at the Tower of Silence, where Zoroastrians keep their dead for decomposition. Article by  Arshad Yousafzai | The ...

Who will you pick in Pakistan's 15 for the ICC World Cup 2019?

The deadline for submitting World Cup squads is 30th April 2019 and Pakistan is done with all its international assignments till then. Pakistan's 5-match ODI series against England will start on 8th May, so it is only logical that Pakistan's World Cup squad plays that series.Considering Pakistan is planning to send the team to England by 24th April for acclimatization and practice matches against county sides, the selectors have 20 odd days to make up their mind about the 15 that will play the I...

Settling the Case of Imam Ul Haq and Usman Khan Shinwari

Imam Ul Haq has faced it since the day he made his debut for Pakistan, while Usman Khan Shinwari has lately got some stick as well.It is not only the largely emotional fans but even well read ones and experts who have questioned the inclusion of Usman Khan in Pakistan's ODI team with comments like "he has off days when he is slaughtered by the batsmen".Well I don't remember any such day in Usman's short ODI career.In 14 ODIs, he has picked up 24 wickets at a remarkable average of 20.5, a strike ...

Rati Framroze Cooper: In Memorarium

On Friday March 8, 2019 Rati Framroze Cooper passed away in Lahore, Pakistan. It may be coincidence or not, that one of the most amazing women educators of the Indian sub-continent, passed away on International Women’s Day. I had the opportunity to meet Rati Aunty only for a few days on my trip to Lahore in January 2016. I was introduced to her and her sister Perin Aunty, through several contacts and I first met up with them in the lobby of the Avari Lahore. Rati Aunty has to have been the most...

Women take to the streets of Pakistan to rewrite their place in society

Campaigners will march on International Women’s Day to protest against harassment, child marriage and ‘honour killings’During Jalwat Ali’s school days in Lahore, there were limited spaces to gather with other women, never mind flood the streets with punchy placards.Public spaces often feel constricted in Pakistan, as though under critical male scrutiny. But over the past few days, Ali has been recruiting dozens of women, from garment workers to domestic helpers who barely get a day off. “To solv...

Second Test notes: Root Maths - The Head of the Snake; Holder's Ban

The parsing of a player's stats in order to sustain a particular argument about their game has a name of quite longstanding: Root Maths. It generally fails because it assumes that stats are somehow infallible as well as immutable, when the truth is that they are as open to interpretation as a Jonny Bairstow straight drive.But after the Antigua Test, when Joe Root's batting average as captain - 1,954 runs at 42.47 - fell more than ten runs behind his average when he's not - 4,594 at 52.80 - the u...

Let’s take a quick look at the opening innings of some recent England Test tours and also the warm-up matches that preceded them

Via Sky Sports “There was never a stage where the dressing room didn’t feel we could win,” said Ben Foakes after England lost the first Test by a quite enormous margin. At no point? Not even when you were 393 runs behind in your second innings with just one wicket left? The truth is that England went from in the game to out of it extremely quickly and spent only a very brief period circling the plughole of defeat. At lunch on day two, they were 30-1; by the drinks break, the...

Imam Ul Haq - a Young but Promising Career ...

For as long as Inzamam Ul Haq remains PCB's Chief Selector, poor Imam Ul Haq will have to bear the brunt of judgement calls and nepotism remarks. Such is our nation, that no matter how good someone performs, they will for some reason always feel he is in the team because of his legendary uncle who is the Chief Selector. I really never understood why so many people feel this way. Inzamam was appointed Chief Selector in April 2016. That was probably the most ideal time to select Imam Ul Ha...

Why Sarfaraz Ahmed’s Racist Slur Strikes Beyond Cricket

The Pakistani cricket team, that has been dogged with many off-field problems in the past decades, is now facing an issue that many outside the Indian subcontinent find perplexing—charges of racism, after Sarfaraz Ahmed, the team captain was caught on mic calling a South African player a “kala” (literal translation black). Some are wondering how racism could even be an issue in a team which has all shades of brown, from very fair to very dark. In fact, racism in the subcontinent is dirty...

Pakistan have now played 4 ODIs at Port Elizabeth and haven't lost even one!That is quite a record for them in a place like South Africa.No one really expected Pakistan to win the first ODI. I mean our ODI team is worse than our test team, and with the way the test team was wiped out, it was really difficult to expect the ODI team to win anything.If you took a look at the best betting exchanges, no one would have placed their money on Pakistan.For starters, I felt Pakistan played the wrong XI.I ...

Are India brilliant? Are Australia shit?

Cheteshwar Pujara (via BT Sport) Looking back on a 2-1 home series defeat to India, Australia captain Tim Paine said that his team “couldn’t quite get through” the big moments. Paine was a little vague about what those big moments were. We can exclusively reveal that 1,251 of them were deliveries bowled to Cheteshwar Pujara that didn’t result in his dismissal. But while Pujara was a very big part of India’s success, wearing Australia’s four-man attack down to a little nub ov...

Azhar Ali & Asad Shafiq have been Epic Failures

When Pakistan's greatest test batsman, Younis Khan, and most capped test captain, Misbah Ul Haq, retired in May 2017, we all thought; rather we all knew that Azhar Ali and Asad Shafiq were ready to take over the role of Pakistan's leading test batsmen.Till that time, Azhar and Asad had played all their test cricket in a batting line up that was built around the backbone of Younis and Misbah.Azhar made the number 3 position his own and even excelled as an opener; while Asad always provided solid ...

Jason Holder (via Windies Cricket YouTube) Our annual Lord Megachief of Gold award is the highest honour in cricket. The title is recognition of performance over the previous calendar year. Here are all the winners. There was some half-decent batting in 2018 – Virat Kohli played a couple of blinding innings, while Henry Nicholls averaged 73 – but it was the bowlers who stood out, and the pace bowlers in particular. Full respect to Kagiso Rabada, the top wicket-taker with 5...
