Easy-to-cancel tours and the mindless narrowing of cricket’s horizons

It’s always been the case that some tours have been easier to cancel than others. Assorted pressures mean cancellations are coming thicker and faster at the minute. What are the implications of this? Earlier this month, we wrote that the threshold for binning the Old Trafford Test was lower than normal. In another year, that match would have been played, but Covid cases, bubble life and the impending resumption of the IPL meant there was simply insufficient appetite for it in 2021. Yo...

Feelings of a dejected fan of Pakistan Cricket

By Dua Moqeem Enraged, dejected, frustrated, betrayed, humiliated. Words alone cannot describe what I, along with 220 million Pakistanis, have been feeling over the span of these past few days. As I sit here today, I have only one question. Why always us, God? Why always us? Why is it always us against the world? I, now, pour my heart out to the world, hoping that they realise the callousness shown to my country by countless people. Friday, 17thSeptember 2021. “The Pindi boys and the P...

Key findings about the religious composition of India

Religious pluralism has long been a core value in India, which has a large majority of Hindus and smaller shares of Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains and other groups. In recent years, the size of these communities and their future growth have been topics of great interest to the Indian public.

Pakistan’s poor batters are going to have to listen to Matthew Hayden speak

Matthew Hayden will be working as a batting consultant for Pakistan at the T20 World Cup in the UAE next month. Matthew Hayden is a man we used to write about very often. Now, against our better judgement, we’re about to write about him again. Some time in 2006, we began writing about just how much we did not like Matthew Hayden. This gradually morphed into a compulsion to highlight all of the absolute bollocks he talked. “Day in, day out, this side just desperately wants to complete its...

Gulnar Cowasjee Serves Parsi Cuisine at your doorstep in Karachi

If you’re a food enthusiast and crave to try new delicacies, Ghar Se has something unique to offer. Ghar Se is a Karachi-based food service that serves Parsi cuisines at your doorstep. It was launched towards the end of 2020 by Gulnar Cowasjee, a former banker. “My journey began soon after resigning from a local bank,” Gulnar said speaking to Hasan Moosvi at SAMAA Digital. Gulnar wanted to be a beautician but she found her sifting through Parsi recipes after the pandemic turned everything upside...

The Taliban are not the only threat to Afghanistan. Aid cuts could undo 20 years of progress

The most vulnerable people will bear the cost of sanctions, as services and the economy collapseWatching Afghanistan’s unfolding trauma, I’ve thought a lot about Mumtaz Ahmed, a young teacher I met a few years ago. Her family fled Kabul during Taliban rule in the late 1990s.Raised as a refugee in Pakistan, Ahmed had defied the odds and made it to university. Now, she was back in Afghanistan teaching maths in a rural girls’ school. “I came back because I believe in education and I love my country...

Why I Went From Litigator To Law Firm Diversity Officer

Until recently, my professional identity was tied to my role as a litigation partner at Mintz Levin Cohn Ferris Glovsky and Popeo PC. I was one of a handful of women of color to have that title, and perhaps the only immigrant woman of color to do so. I enjoyed developing creative solutions to clients’ legal and business problems. In fact, the problem-solving aspect of litigation had always been the greatest draw for me. Article By Narges Kakalia | Mintz Law 360 Pulse As any litigator will att...

Pakistan's World T20 Squad is not all bad ...

Pakistan isn't playing any cricket at the moment, but the past two days have been quite happening for Pakistan cricket. It started with Chief Selector, Mohammad Wasim, announcing Pakistan's 15 man squad for the World T20.  Which was followed by the resignations of Pakistan's head coach, Misbah Ul Haq, and bowling coach, Waqar Younis.  These resignations have Rameez Raja written all over them. Rameez does not assume the PCB Chairman role till September 13; however he has been involved...

Dale Steyn was a trier

Calling someone a trier is usually seen as damning them with faint praise, so we’re going to have to expand on that headline a little bit to ensure the praise is significantly less faint. The early days Dale Steyn’s just retired from cricket. We remember his Test debut. For his first wicket, he arced a yorker into Marcus Trescothick‘s middle stump. It was a good start. Despite that, he only very rarely brushed up against the 90mph mark in that match and we sort of put him to the ba...

A report from the first day of the Hundred at the Oval

This is our second match report from the inaugural season of the Hundred. Here’s the first. King Cricket match reports focus on what it was like to be at the game – not the match itself. Miriam writes… The afternoon started off slightly stressfully because my husband had a meeting in the City, so I had to take the three children (including a baby in a pushchair) by myself on the train. When we got to the platform there was then an announcement asking people with pushchairs and wheelchair...

Beware the melatonin coursing through England’s veins

There is a very good chance this article about England’s day five capitulation is not biologically sound. We’re pretty sure it’s cricketally accurate however. The second Test was won and lost at some point during a morning of pointlessly bouncing Jasprit Bumrah. It’s a hard moment to pin down precisely, but doing so is way less important than the fact that we all just intrinsically understand that it’s true. Bumrah bounced James Anderson, you see – including with a series of no-balls. En...

Why Liam Livingstone’s huge six v Pakistan was just about the most satisfying shot ever played and also why it was not

In a world where every shot that drops just over the rope is MASSIVE and the ones that get caught by spectators sitting in the first row are OUT OF THE GROUND, it becomes quite hard to properly acknowledge the shot played by Liam Livingstone off Pakistan’s Haris Rauf at Headingley. But let’s try. England were 154-5 off 15 overs and Rauf put one in what is widely considered to be “the slot”. Not one to turn his nose up at a slot delivery, Livingstone gave it the full heave and caught it e...

Did you see… James Vince’s silky, casual departure?

If there’s one thing we can all take from the weekend’s sporting events, it’s that England are an unstoppable winning machine. The various members of England’s one-day squad are currently sitting around their houses doing really not very much at all. And England are still winning. They just can’t stop. On Saturday, the B-team won the second one-day international against Pakistan and therefore the series. This is in large part thanks to Saqib Mahmood, who presumably won’t be in a second-...

England’s squad for the Pakistan ODIs doesn’t look *that* weird

England have binned an entire one-day international squad and picked a different one. You’d think that might have resulted in some barrel-scraping. But it hasn’t really. Cannon Fodder was the first videogame we can remember that featured near-constant character turnover. It was right there in the name. Jools would get shot and he’d be replaced by RJ. Jops would get picked off and in would come Chas. RJ and Chas would buy it and you’d have to bring in CJ and Tadger. ...

It’s the England Second XI captain we feel sorry for (and also Chris ‘Dante Hicks’ Silverwood)

You may have heard that England have had to magic-up a whole new one-day squad for the Pakistan series after the first-choice one was sidelined by a bunch of coronavirus cases. Well done everyone – but that’s the easy bit. “We’re in unprecedented territory, in terms of replacing an entire squad and management team, and I’m very proud of how everyone has come together in order to get it done – both those within the ECB and from the county game,” said the managing director of England Cricket,...

A 100 years of Zoroastrian celebration and tradition. Khorshid Jobani has seen a lot of changes within the Zoroastrian culture. She was born on July 12th, 1921 in Quetta when it was still under British rule and later saw the independence of Pakistan. She had one older brother and one older sister. She lost her parents at a very young age but was taught the many traditions of our culture such as prayers, respect and the ceremony of a Navjote.

Khurshedben Naoroji: The singer who preached nonviolence to bandits

In most countries, the life of an elite, sophisticated woman renouncing her career as a classical soprano to preach nonviolence to bandits and kidnappers would merit significant study and attention. Yet in India, the woman in question, Khurshedben Naoroji, is largely unknown. Historian Dinyar Patel recounts her forgotten story. The writer Ramachandra Guha once described the world of Indian biography as “a bare cupboard”. Curiously, most scholars of India eschew writing life stories. A new book, ...

All we ask of James Anderson in the match he becomes England’s most capped Test player is that he loses his temper at some point

We’ve written about James Anderson a lot over the years. He has a lot of qualities, but one of his finest – to our mind – is his irritability. We named James Anderson in an England XI that comprised the players we have invested in the most and we also crowned him Lord Megachief of Gold 2017. If you want to read about how much he means to us or how great he is at cricket, those are the pieces you should read. Today we want to talk about his tetchiness. Because Jimmy’s tetchiness is a wond...

Three great bowlers’ run-ups – but do you have a favourite?

Can we talk about bowlers’ run-ups? We’ve picked out three great ones. They’re not necessarily our favourites, but we feel like each one says something in particular about how bowlers get to the crease and what we as viewers feel as they’re doing so. But before that, please can we talk about Jurassic Park for a bit, because that’s the best way of explaining why run-ups are important. There is a reason why the first Jurassic Park is good and why all the rest of the Jurassic Park films are no...
