During the hearing, the Tribunal heard evidence that Ansari approached Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed during the Pakistan series with Sri Lanka in the UAE in October 2017 with a view to engaging him in corrupt conduct by soliciting information from him.

Sarfraz reported the approach immediately and an ICC ACU investigation ensued which resulted in these charges and decision.

According to sources Sarfraz, who was shopping with his family at a mall in Dubai when he was approached by a bookie ahead of the second ODI against Sri Lanka. The bookie came up to the captain, who first thought he was a fan requesting for a selfie.

The man, however, made a spot-fixing bid to Sarfraz who turned it down on the spot and reported the approach to PCB’s security officials staying with the team.

Ansari is bound by the code as a result of his affiliation to the Pakistan cricket team and also as a result of being a coach to two teams that participate in domestic matches in the UAE.

He was found guilty of the following three offences under the Code:

Article 2.3.3 – directly soliciting, inducing, enticing or encouraging a participant to breach the Code Article 2.3.2 by disclosing inside information.

Article 2.4.6 – failure or refusal to cooperate with the ACU’s investigation by failing to provide accurately and completely the information and/or documentation requested by the ACU in October 2017. This included a request by the ICC ACU to take possession of and/or copy or download information from his mobile devices.

Article 2.4.6 – failure or refusal to cooperate with the ACU’s investigation by failing to provide accurately and completely the information and/or documentation requested by the ACU in February 2018.

Again this included a request by the ICC ACU to take possession of and/or copy or download information from his mobile devices.

Alex Marshall, ICC General Manager – ACU said: “I’d like to place on record my thanks to Sarfaraz Ahmed who showed true leadership and professionalism from the moment he reported this approach.

He recognised it for what it was, rejected it and reported it. He then supported our investigation and subsequent tribunal.

“This is the first time we have prosecuted for failure to cooperate with an investigation since the new rules enabling us to demand the participants hand over their phone for examination and the sanction reflects the seriousness of the offence. It is an important tool to aid our investigations and continue in our efforts to rid the sport of these corrupters.”

Match 8: Multan Sultans vs Quetta Gladiators – Playing XI, Team News, Timing, Pitch Report, Changes https://www.greenteam92.com/match-8-multan-sultans-vs-quetta-gladiators-playing-xi-team-news-timing-pitch-report-changes/ https://www.greenteam92.com/match-8-multan-sultans-vs-quetta-gladiators-playing-xi-team-news-timing-pitch-report-changes/#respond Tue, 19 Feb 2019 21:54:08 +0000 https://www.greenteam92.com/?p=13593 The fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has reached Sharjah and the second phase of the tournament will begin at the historical stadium on Wednesday (tomorrow).

A night match between Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators is ushering in the second phase on Wednesday and the match will start at 09:00 PM (PST).
Quetta is riding high — having won both their matches while Multan had lost to Karachi Kings in the opening match but won against defending champions Islamabad United.

Multan’s match-winner against Islamabad was the evergreen Shahid Afridi, who produced a splendid all-round show. Sharjah fans, who considers Afridi as their hero and throngs the stands just to watch him, will be delighted to see him in the very first match of the PSL here.

This game promises to be a cracker of a contest and a good crowd turn up is expected considering it’s a Saturday afternoon encounter to go with some legendary names in action like Shoaib Malik, Shahid Afridi and Andre Russell.

Match Details:

Date: Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Timing: 09:00 PM PKT

Venue: Sharjah

Weather: Weather is expected to be clear with a few clouds into the afternoon.

Conditions / Pitch Report: The Sharjah surface should suit the spin bowlers but there is enough in the balanced pitch for the batsmen and seamers too. The pitch has been decent enough for batting, especially in the second half of a game.

Head to Head:

Overall:

Matches:| Quetta Gladiators: 1 | Multan Sultans: 1 | NR: 0

Last Encounters:

  •  Quetta Gladiators beat Multan Sultans by 2 wickets

Form Guide:

Quetta Gladiators: W W L L L (completed matches, most recent first)

Multan Sultans: W L L L L

Team News:

1. Quetta Gladiators

Quetta will be captained by Sarfraz Ahmed who will also keep wickets and bat down the order. Watson should open the batting. Not sure how much bowling he will do.

U Akmal, Smith and Shehzad will also contribute with the willow. Fawad Ahmed is going to be the lead spinner along with M Nawaz. Shane Watson and Umar Akmal were decent in the last match. On the seam front, A Ali and Tanvir are almost certain to lead the attack.

Quetta captain Sarfraz Ahmad wants his bowlers to restrict opponents to a small score like they did against Islamabad, who were restricted to 157 for eight thanks to a four-wicket spell from Sohail Tanvir.

Akmal, who is top form and had scored an unbeaten 74 and 44 in the first two matches, is expected to enthral fans with his big hitting.

Quetta Gladiator’s Probable XI:

1. Sarfraz Ahmed, 2. Shane Watson, 3. DR Smith, 4. Rilee Rossouw, 5. Umar Akmal, 6. Ahmed Shehzad, 7. Anwar Ali, 8. Mohammad Nawaz, 9. Sohail Tanvir, 10. Fawad Ahmed, 11. Mohammad Asghar

2. Multan Sultans

Multan Sultans were able to bounce back from defeat in their opening game against Karachi Kings as they claimed their first win in this year’s PSL by beating Islamabad United by five wickets.

Shahid Afridi put in a typical all-action display as he contributed with both bat and ball whilst captain Shoaib Malik produced a controlled 31 not out to guide his side to victory alongside Afridi who hit a quick-fire 16 from just eight balls.

The Sultans are still without some of their key batsmen and despite their win over Islamabad, they could face trouble if their bowlers don’t perform as well as they did in that match.

The experience of Junaid Khan and Mohammad Irfan makes their bowling attack looks pretty solid. To add to that, they have all-rounders like Shahid Afridi and Andre Russell, who can win games single-handedly for the side. Chris Green and Mohammad Ilyas are the options for skipper Malik.

Multan Sultan’s Probable XI:

1. Shan Masood, 2. Johnson Charles (wk), 3. LJ Evans, 4. Shoaib Malik (c), 5. Andre Russell, 6. Hammad Azam, 7. Shahid Afridi, 8. Chris Green, 10. Junaid Khan, 11. Mohammad Abbas, 12. Mohammad Irfan

Players to watch:

1. Andre Russel – All-Rounder, Multan Sultans

Andre Russel is always a dangerous player when it comes to the shortest format of the game. One of the most powerful hitters of the ball, Russel doesn’t need any time to adjust and can switch gears in an instant.

2. Shane Watson – All-Rounder, Quetta Gladiators

What Andre Russel is to Multan Sultans, Shane Watson is to Quetta Gladiators. Watson is a natural when it comes to big knocks and could be a lethal player for the Quetta Gladiators. A player of his quality is always a danger for opposition bowlers as he often tends to take the game away with his maximums.

3. Umar Akmal – Batsman, Quetta Gladiators

Umar Akmal is also a dangerous player when it comes to the shortest format of the game. A player of his quality is always a danger for opposition. Akmal is in top form and had scored an unbeaten 74 and 44 in the first two matches.

4. Shahid Afridi – All-rounder, Multan Sultans

Multan needed someone to play an innings according to the stipulations. Shahid Afridi is one of the best hitter of the ball in the world and can dismantle any bowling attack on his day.

5. Shoaib Malik – All-rounder, Multan Sultans

Multan Sultan’s skipper Shoaib Malik is a utility player. While there may be someone who steals the spotlight, Malik will be very consistent for Sultans. Malik reads the game very well and tunes his batting accordingly.

Stats:

Highest Total: 156/8 by QG v MS in 2018

Highest Score: 65* by Shoaib Malik in 2018

Best Bowling: Umar Gul 4-0-24-6 v QG in 2018

ICC responds on India’s statement of not playing with Pakistan in World Cup https://www.greenteam92.com/icc-responds-on-indias-statement-of-not-playing-with-pakistan-in-world-cup/ https://www.greenteam92.com/icc-responds-on-indias-statement-of-not-playing-with-pakistan-in-world-cup/#respond Tue, 19 Feb 2019 19:42:23 +0000 https://www.greenteam92.com/?p=13583 Indian cricket fans, angered by an attack on Indian forces in Kashmir, have urged India to boycott a World Cup match against Pakistan this summer.

The Cricket Club of India (CCI), among the country’s oldest clubs, and India star  also joined calls for the national team to stay away from the June 16 match in Britain, as Indians accused Pakistan of not doing enough to stop militants from operating on its soil.

With the World Cup starting in exactly 100 days, there have been scattered voices that want India to boycott the group match against Pakistan but ICC on Tuesday has given a shit up call to all those. 

Pakistan and India World Cup 2019 match will go ahead despite the tensions between two countries in the wake of Pulwama attack, International Cricket Council (ICC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) David Richardso said.

David Richardson told ESPNcricinfo that that ‘no indications’ have been sent from either board about the World Cup clash not taking place. “We haven’t written to the boards as yet.”

ICC Chief Executive David Richardson addresses the media. Photo: ICC

India vs Pakistan is a high-profile World Cup match at Manchester on June 16. It promises to be the mother of all battles within the war to win cricket’s ultimate glory. Pakistan and India World Cup clash is scheduled on June 16 in Manchester.

Richardson added ICC is monitoring the situation with its members including Pakistan Cricket Board and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

“Certainly there are no indications any of the matches, including the Pakistan-India match, will not be played as planned at the World Cup. But as I say we will continue to monitor the situation.”

There are just 100 days until the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 gets underway.

World Cup tournament director, Steve Elworthy, is convinced that the match will be the biggest attraction of the tournament.

“It is probably one of the biggest sporting events in the world,” Elworthy, the former South Africa fast bowler, said. “You think of that match and you think of the passion, the support, the audience, the [number of] people who applied for tickets.”

The World Cup starts in 100 days and in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack, there have been voices calling for India to snap all cricketing ties with Pakistan. However, neither Richardson nor Elworthy are too concerned about the match being called off.

Earlier, Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh called for India to boycott their World Cup game against Pakistan in June in protest at Pulwama attack.

Singh said: “There is no need for any relations with Pakistan, let alone cricket.

“Don´t play the World Cup match with Pakistan on June 16 — country comes first for all of us and we are all standing with our forces,” he added.

The boycott call has also been taken up by the secretary of the prestigious Cricket Club of India.

“CCI is a sporting association but nation comes first,” said Suresh Bafna as he condemned the attack in which a suicide bomber rammed an explosives-laden car into a military convoy in Indian Occupied Kashmir last Thursday.

He is the only player from the ICC’s associate teams participating in PSL 2019. Even though Lamichhane’s T20 journey started only 10 months ago, his demand is franchise cricket is equivalent to a seasoned player. Lamichhane will be playing for the first time in PSL and it’s his sixth T20 team. 

Former Pakistani cricketer Ramiz Raja is eager to watch Nepal’s spinning sensation play on Pakistani ground.

“If you have not heard Lamichhane’s name till now, you will not only hear him but see him” said Raja.

Corey Anderson who is a professional New Zealand cricketer and plays as an all-rounder will be playing for the Lahore Qalanders in the PSL.

South African all-rounder David Wiese has also joined Lahore Qalandars squad in Sharjah.

Trial date set for Pakistani cricketer spot-fixing case https://www.greenteam92.com/trial-date-set-for-pakistani-cricketer-spot-fixing-case/ https://www.greenteam92.com/trial-date-set-for-pakistani-cricketer-spot-fixing-case/#respond Tue, 19 Feb 2019 10:44:34 +0000 https://www.greenteam92.com/?p=13569 LONDON: Former Pakistan opener Nasir Jamshed and two other men have been given a trial date after they were accused of conspiring to offer bribes to professional cricket players.

Jamshed, 32, Yousef Anwar, 35, and Mohammed Ijaz, 33, were arrested last February.

The arrests were part of an investigation by the National Crime Agency into alleged spot-fixing in tournaments organised by national cricket boards from Bangladesh and Pakistan.

Jamshed, a former Pakistan Test player, Anwar and Ijaz are accused of conspiring to offer financial advantages to players in the Pakistan Super League with the intention of inducing them to perform improperly by failing to play competitively in good faith.

The offences are said to have taken place between November 1 2016 and February 10 2017.

Anwar and Ijaz are also accused of conspiring together to bribe players taking part in the Bangladesh Premier League to perform improperly between November 1 2016 and December 6 2016.

On Monday, all three defendants entered not guilty pleas at Manchester Crown Court to the charges.

A trial, estimated to last up to three weeks, will take place at the same court on December 2.

Jamshed, of High Street, Walsall; Anwar, of Littlebrook Avenue, Slough, Berkshire; and Ijaz, of Chippingham Road, Sheffield, were all granted unconditional bail and told to attend a pre-trial review hearing on September 6.

Earlier, Cricketer Nasir Jamshed has been charged as part of an investigation by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA).

Jamshed, along with two other men, has been charged with bribery offences for their involvement in spot-fixing during tournaments organised by the Pakistan Cricket Board and Bangladesh Cricket Board.

The banned former Pakistan opener, has been charged with two counts of bribery by the UK’s National Crime Agency (NCA). He will be required to appear before Manchester Magistrates Court on January 15.

Jamshed was arrested in February 2017, amid investigations into spot-fixing in the Pakistan Super League. In August this year, he was given a 10-year ban by the PCB after being found guilty of five charges under its anti-corruption code.

The NCA, which has worked in conjunction with the PCB and ICC anti-corruption units, said on Wednesday that Jamshed, who lives in the UK, had been served with a written summons by the Crown Prosecution Service. Two British nationals, Yousaf Anwar and Mohammed Ijaz, have also been charged.

The punishment for bribery as a summary offence – tried at a Magistrates Court – can range from a fine to imprisonment for up to 12 months.

A statement from the NCA said: “Three men have been charged with bribery offences as part of a National Crime Agency (NCA) investigation into cricket match spot-fixing in tournaments organised by national cricket boards from Pakistan and Bangladesh.

Wahab Riaz revealed the reason behind his mysterious ‘sword’ celebration https://www.greenteam92.com/wahab-riaz-revealed-the-reason-behind-his-mysterious-sword-celebration/ https://www.greenteam92.com/wahab-riaz-revealed-the-reason-behind-his-mysterious-sword-celebration/#respond Mon, 18 Feb 2019 19:58:57 +0000 https://www.greenteam92.com/?p=13556 The unique wicket-taking celebration by a bowler has become a recent trend in the cricketing world. Different celebration styles by bowlers have been witnessed in cricket world.

Wahab Riaz is one of those cricketer who is known for his mysterious celebration. Last year in Pakistan Super League Wahab Riaz comes up with moustache celebration. Wahab used to tweak his moustache while celebrates a wicket.

That new mustache look of Wahab Riaz got a-lot of attention. The look was inspired by former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson. Wahab Riaz has also admitted that he is inspired by his bowling hero Mitchell Johnson.

The response from fans on his moustache celebration was negative and most of the people rated it boring and not impressed.

This year, Wahab Riaz is back with an all-new mysterious (and quite scary!) celebration in the ongoing season of the Pakistan Super League.

Wahab Riaz who is the most successful PSL bowler seems to be scrambling some invisible enemies this time around with an imaginary sword.

Wahab’s celebration, which was pretty similar to Undertaker, a WWE wrestler. He made a cross sign with his left hand and then made a gesture of finishing someone.

Here’s the video of his celebration:

According to Wahab Riaz, it’s him drawing an imaginary cross to indicate he’s crossed off yet another batsman from his list and added him to his wickets tally.

“My goal is to take a lot of wickets, and I’m crossing off each wicket [from my list],” the fast bowler told Geo.

“There should be entertainment. It’s a league, so I’m taking advantage of the opportunity. Every bowler should have a way or another to celebrate.”

Wahab pointed out that T20 cricket “is a bit harsh on the fast bowlers. So when a bowler gets someone out, they should celebrate to show their happiness.” “I’m not out to offend anyone,” he added.

Earlier, Shaheen Shah Afridi tried to simulate him in mock revenge during the Peshawar Zalmi vs Lahore Qalandars match on Sunday.

Who slayed it better? Shaheen Afridi or Wahab Riaz? You have to decide this!

Earlier, Wahab Riaz has said that he is eyeing a place in the Pakistan World Cup squad through his performance in the fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

“PSL is a good opportunity before the World Cup. I have been bowling well in the leagues and I hope through my performance in the tournament I can become a part of the national squad,’ said Wahab Riaz.

Fiery pacemen Haris Rauf took four wickets and Shaheen Shah Afridi grabbed two wickets to change Lahore Qalanadars’ fortunes as they downed Karachi Kings.

The rivalry didn’t end there and after the match, an exchange of inappropriate gestures occurred between Lahore Qalandars and Karachi Kings resulting in an official complaint filed against both teams.

It all started when ’ players and authorities witnessed some indecent gestures coming from the enclosure of Qalandars’ owners and management.

According to source, Kings captain Imad Waseem, president Wasim Akram, and fast bowler Mohammed Aamir were all a subject of obscene language coming from the same source.

After the incident Karachi Kings authorities including Wasim Akram, complained directly to the alleged officials and also contacted the Dubai stadium’s management, which took quick action and the person in question was called out.

Following the incident, Lahore Qalandars’ authorities have filed a complaint against Kings’ captain Imad Wasim, pacer Mohammad Amir and president Wasim Akram for showing indecent gestures and using foul language with their guests’ sitting in their enclosure while Karachi Kings has filed a complaint against Lahore’s management.

According to reports, Karachi have accused one member sitting in the VIP box of Lahore Qalandars at the Dubai stadium of using foul language while the Qalandars have apparently accused Karachi’s team senior management of inappropriate behaviour.

In lieu of the spat, Imad Wasim and Mohammad Amir have been alleged of exhibiting inappropriate gestures and using offensive language towards women. The matter was later taken up to match referee Roshan Mahanama in a formal, written complaint put forth by Lahore Qalandars.

In the wake of the incident, Mohammad Amir and Imad Wasim have been severely accused of misbehaving with women, some of which belong to the players’ family.

Meanwhile, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has ordered further investigations to be done after the decision of match referee.

Lahore Qalandars’ team manager Mr. Sameen Rana has confirmed that the team management had officially lodged a complaint, reported Behtareen.pk

“We have lodged a complaint with PCB and they are investigating the matter,” informed Rana. “Now it is the duty of the board to investigate and decide whether three of them were involved in the indecent activity or not,” he added.

Rana showed disappointment on Wasim Akram, Muhammad Amir and Imad Wasim for using indecent gestures towards Qalandars’ guests.

“There were families sitting at our enclosure, including Muhammad Hafeez’s family as well,” he told.

He was also not very happy with PCB for ‘mishandling’ the matter at first. “Yesterday, when it all happened, the board mishandled it at first. The ground security pointed someone in the crowd and made him responsible,” he told.

While at other side Karachi Kings owner Salman Iqbal has denied all the charges on behalf of his team.

“It was very disappointing to witness foul language from Lahore Qalandars stand towards legend like Wasim Akram,” said Salman Iqbal.

“We have formally lodged a complaint with match referee and chairman PCB, Mr. Ehsan Mani,” he added. “It is not Pakistan versus India but Pakistan Super League and we all need to show decency,” told Iqbal.

According to sources, Karachi Kings’ haven’t received any formal complaint either from Lahore Qalandars or PCB.

According to BBC Urdu report, the ground security investigated senior journalist Owais Tauheed and Qalandars’ official Rana Jawad on complaint of Wasim Akram and also took their accreditation cards.

The bus was on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in Lethpora town, about 30 km from Srinagar when the attack took place. The entire nation is in a state of shock as well as furious following the gruesome attack.

Earlier, With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resolve to avenge “each drop of tear shed” in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, Indian Sports channel and cricket website pulls the plug on Pakistan Super League.

Indian sports channel DSport and Cricket website Cricbuzz has stopped the PSL broadcasting and coverage as a protest against the Pulwama attack.

In the wake of the Pulwama terrorist attack on CRPF personnel, DSport has snapped its ties with the Pakistan Super League.  The Indian television channel, which was launched by Discovery Networks Asia Pacific in 2017, was slated to broadcast all the games of the ongoing Pakistan Super League in India.

Now, Cricket Club of India (CCI) secretary Suresh Bafna has asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India to not play against Pakistan in the upcoming ICC World Cup.

India vs Pakistan is a high-profile World Cup match at Manchester on June 16. It promises to be the mother of all battles within the war to win cricket’s ultimate glory.

Cricket Club of India (CCI) secretary Suresh Bafna feels Indian cricket should also follow suit and avoid playing against Pakistan in the upcoming World Cup.

“We condemn the terror activities carried out against our army and CRPF personnel. Though CCI is a sporting association but nation comes first even before sports,” he told ANI.

He further said that if Pakistan truly believes they had no part to play in the incident, their Prime Minister should come out in the open and issue a statement on the matter.

“He (Imran Khan) should respond. He is the Prime Minister and if he believes that Pakistan has no role to play in the attack then why is he not coming out openly. He should come out openly. People should know the truth. He is not coming out openly which means that there are Stains in their folds,” said Suresh Bafna.

Earlier, the CCI also decided to cover the portrait of Imran Khan which is present in their Brabourne Stadium headquarters of Mumbai.

The current Pakistan Prime Minister’s portrait was placed in the All rounder restaurant in the club. A photograph of Imran Khan with his national teammates, which was on one of the walls of the club, has also been removed.

A decision to this effect was taken by the club’s managing committee following the Pulwama terror attack which claimed the life of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

According to details, Indian media falsely reported that Abdul Rashid Ghazi was the mastermind behind the attack in Pulwama which killed at least 44 Indian paramilitary personnel.

Reports by Indian media also claimed that Abdul Rashid Ghazi has been traced, while the truth is Ghazi was killed by Pakistani security forces in 2007 in an operation.

On Thursday (14 February), a suicide bomber attacked a CRPF convoy with an explosive-laden vehicle, jamming the SUV into the  CRPF bus in Pulwama district (Jammu and Kashmir). More than 40 soldiers have lost their lives, and many are critically injured.

With Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resolve to avenge “each drop of tear shed” in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack, Indian Sports channel and cricket website pulls the plug on Pakistan Super League.

Indian sports channel DSport and Cricket website Cricbuzz has stopped the PSL broadcasting and coverage as a protest against the Pulwama attack.

In the wake of the Pulwama terrorist attack on CRPF personnel, DSport has snapped its ties with the Pakistan Super League.  The Indian television channel, which was launched by Discovery Networks Asia Pacific in 2017, was slated to broadcast all the games of the ongoing Pakistan Super League in India.

In February 2017, the Discovery Networks Asia Pacific launched their sports channel DSport in India. It has regularly broadcasted various live sports. This Indian channel also broadcasts the cricket tournaments.

Apart from a few international cricket assignments, this channel also now televises Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), Afghanistan Premier League (APL), PSL etc.

India had no broadcasters during the first two PSL editions. Later, the new Indian sports channel DSport has started to broadcast the PSL from the third season (PSL 2018).

The ongoing PSL 2019 has just started on 14 February, and it will run till 17 March. DSport has already telecasted the PSL 2019 opening ceremony and the first three games.

While at other side, Former Pakistan captain Imran Khan’s portrait has been removed from the Cricket Club of India in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack.

The current Pakistan Prime Minister’s portrait was placed in the All rounder restaurant in the club. A photograph of Imran Khan with his national teammates, which was on one of the walls of the club, has also been removed.

A decision to this effect was taken by the club’s managing committee following the Pulwama terror attack which claimed the life of 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel.

The bilateral tension between the two neighbours, nonetheless, is bound to increase after the latest attack. Consequently, any hopes of seeing the two countries resuming their rivalry on the cricket field also looks bleak now.

India have not played a full bilateral Test series against Pakistan since 2007 when the latter visited India for three Tests and five One-Day Internationals. They played a short series of three ODIs and two T20s in India in December 2012, but otherwise, both have faced each other only in the ICC organised events or the Asia Cup.

The BCCI has also not kept Pakistan in its Future Tour Programmed for 2019-2023 cycles, snubbing the neighbouring country amongst its six proposed opponents for the World Test Championship beginning in 2019.
