Cricket News Misbah-ul-Haq Named Coach And Chief Selector Of Pakistan Cricket Team

first_imgNew Delhi: Former captain Misbah-ul-Haq has been named the new head coach as well as chief selector of the Pakistan cricket team. Misbah will have unprecedented powers as Chairman of Selectors and head coach of the team with head coaches of the six first-class Cricket Association sides as his fellow selectors. Misbah will be Pakistan’s 30th head coach – but it is the first time that the head coach will also be the chief selector, along the lines of the system in New Zealand.According to reports, Misbah was a unanimous choice of a five-member panel that comprised Intikhab Alam (former captain and the longest-serving Pakistan team manager and coach), Bazid Khan (former international cricketer and one of the most respected commentators), Asad Ali Khan (member, Board of Governors), Wasim Khan (Chief Executive, PCB) and Zakir Khan (Director – International Cricket, PCB).Misbah will reunite with Waqar Younis who has been named bowling coach of the national side on a three-year contract. Pakistan failed to reach the semi-finals of the 2019 World Cup in July, prompting the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) not to renew head coach Mickey Arthur’s tenure. Bowling coach Azhar Mahmood and batting coach Grant Flower were also shown the door. The PCB said Misbah will be head coach for three years.”Former captain Misbah is confirmed as Pakistan men’s national team head coach in all three formats on a three-year contract,” said a statement.”In line with the PCB’s commitment to ensure transparency, accountability and role clarity at all levels, Misbah was also named as the chairman of selectors with head coaches of the six first-class cricket association sides as his fellow selectors.”Misbah and Younis will start with a three one-day internationals and three Twenty20s at home against Sri Lanka from September 27 to October 9. Pakistan travel to Australia in November for Tests in Brisbane and Adelaide.Misbah is Pakistan’s most successful Test captain with 26 wins in 56 Tests and 11 draws. He played 75 Tests, 162 ODIs and 39 T20Is matches for Pakistan in a career which ended in 2017. Misbah described the role as challenging.”I know expectations are high, but I am absolutely ready and up for the task otherwise I would not have thrown my name in the hat for one of the most challenging and coveted roles in Pakistan cricket,” he said in a press release.”We have some of the most talented and exciting cricketers, and I will like to help them train and prepare in such a way that they can play intelligently, smartly and fearlessly. “I am aware this will require a change in the dressing room culture but if we have to compete consistently at the highest level, we have to embrace these modern day requirements.” Pakistan are seventh in Test rankings, sixth in ODIs but are top ranked in Twenty20s.

Edo FA Boss Salutes Obaseki over Bendel Insurance Promotion to NPFL

first_imgChairman of Edo State Football Association, Frank Ilaboya has given a pat on the back to the state governor, Godwin Obaseki and his deputy Rt. Hon Philip Shaibu over the promotion of Bendel Insurance to the elite class of the nation’s domestic league.An excited Ilaboya who spoke after Insurance beat arch rivals 3SC to confirm their NPFL qualification in the Aba Super 8 play off said the return of Insurance was clearly a fall out of the massive support the club enjoyed from Gov Obaseki.“The support for Insurance from the state government was total. The players got all that they needed to perform from the governor. Gov Obaseki rebranded the club and I m so excited that after over a decade Insurance are back to where they rightly belong. Bendel Insurance “The Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon. Philip Shaibu has equally been wonderful. He not only motivated the players but even stepped unto the pitch to play making history as the first sitting deputy governor to lace boots in the Nigerian league. As FA chairman, I m happy this is happening in our time,” Ilaboya said.Ilaboya who is Owan West Local G,overnment chairman said soccer fans should watch out for Insurance this season as they would make their return in grand style insisting that the target of the club would be to do well and possibly pick a continental ticket.“As we speak, the government is working on the Ogbe Stadium which would be used to host the Edo 2020 National Sports Festival. We would also want the arena to host continental football and with the kind of wonderful attention sports is receiving in the state, Insurance would go continental,” Ilaboya said.He further disclosed that the state’s female team, Edo Queens would also get the same kind of treatment Insurance are getting.“Gov Obaseki is also planning big for Edo Queens. The female team would soon be rebranded and just like Insurance we want to see Edo Queens climb to the top of female football in the country.“On the whole, the state government has total package for sports. It is not just the Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium that is being reconstructed. The government is building 20 mini stadiums in all the local government areas across the state. Sports in this state has never had it so good,” Ilaboya concluded.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

And while Pannell exploded in the game’s opening moments, he was silenced for the final 54 minutes. Meanwhile, Marasco dodged and dished all over the Big Red defense. Cornell couldn’t contain the Orange’s top midfield line, led by Marasco, and with SU’s No. 22 paving the way, No. 7 Syracuse came back from 4-0 down to upset the Big Red.“JoJo Marasco’s a heck of a player,” CU head coach Ben DeLuca said.After the Big Red held Syracuse scoreless for the first six minutes of the game, Marasco streaked onto the field down the right wing. It was one of his first chances to stretch his legs all game.“We believe in our defense, though,” Marasco said of the scoreless opening. “They get us the ball a lot and it shows when we get the ball. We’ve been taking such good shots this year we were normally scoring with every possession.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMarasco settled the Orange into just its second set offense of the game, dodging from the point down the right hash marks where he hit Loy in stride to set up SU’s first goal of the game with 8:20 left in the first quarter.

After the game, the midfield orchestrator was the butt of celebratory joking from his teammates.“So nice of you to join us,” Megill said to Marasco as the midfielder rushed into the postgame press conference. Marasco pointed to the chair he was trying to sit in, sandwiched tightly between Megill and coach Desko.“Take your time, take your time,” goalie Dominic Lamolinara piled on.It was just what he did all game, and it gave his teammates a reason to joke afterward, pleased with their monumental victory.

Chicharito fires dramatic winner as Real beat Atletico

first_imgHolders Real Madrid kept alive their dream of a record-extending 11th European crown when Javier Hernandez’s late strike against 10-man Atletico Madrid secured a 1-0 win and a Champions League semifinal place on Wednesday.After last week’s quarterfinal first leg at the Calderon ended 0-0, a tense return at the Bernabeu appeared to be heading for extra time until James Rodriguez slipped a pass through to Cristiano Ronaldo in the 88th minute.The Portugal forward unselfishly squared for Hernandez and the Mexican striker stroked the ball past Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak to secure a 1-0 aggregate victory, Real’s first win over Atletico in eight matches this season.It was a bitter blow for Atletico, who went toe to toe with the team that beat them in last year’s final until their Turkey playmaker Arda Turan was dismissed for a second booking 14 minutes from time and Hernandez applied the killer blow.Real coach Carlo Ancelotti, missing injured regulars Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Luka Modric, started with Hernandez up front with Ronaldo and centre back Sergio Ramos pushed forward into a defensive midfield role.Seeking to become the first team to retain the trophy in the Champions League era, Real had the upper hand in terms of possession and chances in a cagey first half. Ronaldo forced a good save from Oblak with a 32nd-minute free kick before racing through with a clear site of goal a minute before halftime.Oblak was again equal to the challenge, racing out to block Ronaldo’s fierce shot and deflect the ball away for a corner.Real threatened immediately at the start of the second period when Isco threaded a pass through for Hernandez but he scuffed his shot wide of the far post.Atletico hopes suffered a massive blow when Arda picked up a second yellow for a foot-up challenge on Ramos and he was distraught as he trudged off to a cacophony of whistles.The draw for the semifinals is on Friday, with Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus joining Real in the pot. –Follow Gary on Twitter: @garyalsmithlast_img read more
