The on-field verbal spat between Shahid Afridi, Naveen-ul-Haq and Mohammad Amir seems far from over with the conversation moving off-field.

It all started when Galle Gladiators captain Shahid Afridi was not amused with Kandy Tuskers’ Naveen-ul-Haq after the rookie pacer had a heated exchange with left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir during the sixth match of the inaugural edition of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) on Monday.

Naveen allegedly hurled Amir during Gladiators’ innings, which didn’t go down well with the Pakistani pacer. The duo had to be separated by their team member as they kept on arguing after Tuskers won the match by 25 runs.

Munaf Patel along with others on the field, the players tried to show their sportsmanship stopping him to indulge in the incident but nothing worked out in front of the aggressive Afghani lad.

After the match when players were exchanging handshakes, Afridi was seen smiling until he saw Naveen and confronted the Afghan pacer over his behaviour with Amir.

Afridi erupts in anger on Afghanistan pacer who had a heated exchange with Mohammad Amir.

In the video going viral on social media, Afridi can be seen starring at him and asking something to him angrily.

Former Pakistan cricket captain and Galle Gladiators skipper Shahid Afridi on Tuesday disclosed what advice he gave 21-year-old Afghanistan cricketer Naveen-ul Haq. 

Responding to Afridi’s advice, Afghani Lad replied that he’s “Always ready to take advice and give respect.”

“Always ready to take advice and give respect, Cricket is a gentleman’s game but if someone says you all are under our feet and will stay their then he is not only talking about me but also talking abt my ppl,” Naveen replied under Afridi’s tweet.

Now Mohammad Amir has hit back at Naveen-ul-Haq by calling him a liar.

Mohammad Amir has declared Naveen-ul-Haq a liar and also revealed that he never made any negative remarks about Naveen or Afghanistan.

“Naveen-ul-Haq is a liar. I never made any negative remark about him or Afghanistan. He was constantly ‘ABUSlNG’ me, calling me a ”TRAlTOR’ and saying I should have gone to jail for 5 years,” Amir said according to Saj Sadiq.

Earlier in an interview given to Cricingif, Mohammad Amir revealed that the latter “kept arguing” even after the match had ended.

“The situation was such, and I was also aggressive,” Amir said during an interview with Cricingif, adding that Haq kept on arguing.

Amir said that a player’s heart rate also hits 170-200 during the match, so a person is not able to think straight. “However, this should be discouraged.”

“[Naveen] is a youngster, and he will learn with time,” Amir said, adding: “It’s a part of cricket.”

Amir revealed that when he had joined the game, even he would sledge the basement. “It happens in the heat of the moment, and no one gets personal.”

The pacer said that bowlers need to focus on their bowling, and their aim should be to send the batsman back to the pavillion.

Speaking about what former Pakistani skipper Shahid Afridi told Haq, he said: “Shahid bhai told him that it was not the way to behave with seniors. It’s just a game, anything can happen.”

England Cricket Team under ‘fire’ for using ‘coded signals system’ https://www.greenteam92.com/international-news/england/england-cricket-team-under-fire-for-using-coded-signals-system/ https://www.greenteam92.com/international-news/england/england-cricket-team-under-fire-for-using-coded-signals-system/#respond Thu, 03 Dec 2020 22:01:29 +0000 https://www.greenteam92.com/?p=20661 England Cricket Team is under fire over its attempts to send coded messages to captain Eoin Morgan from the dressing-room while the team is fielding.

England Cricket Team is under fire over its attempts to send coded messages to captain Eoin Morgan from the dressing-room while the team is fielding.

During the most recent T20 international against South Africa this week, England’s analyst Nathan Leamon was picked up by television cameras holding up large cards on clipboards on the team balcony. The strategy was cleared in advance by match referee Andy Pycroft.

Cards showing messages reading ‘4E’ and ‘2C’ were held up in what was thought to be an attempt to give Morgan more information about possible match-ups between batsmen and bowlers.

It is understood that the signals referred to a suggestion as to who should bowl the next over and a possible field setting. For example, in the signal ‘2C’, the ‘2’ might have been a suggestion that Chris Jordan should bowl, with the ‘C’ referring to a field set for wide yorkers.

It’s not the first time that Leamon has used such methods to pass information from the boundary’s edge. After teaming up with Andy Flower at Multan Sultans for this year’s PSL, he set up a similar system with the on-field captain, Shan Masood.

ECB defended use of coded signals:

The ECB said the signaling system was being trialed and was “intended as a live informational resource that the captain may choose to use or ignore as he wishes”. It added: “They are not commands or instructions and all decision-making takes place on the field.”

Eoin Morgan said: New signal system within spirit of the game:

“It is 100 percent within the spirit of the game,” he told a news conference on Thursday.

“There is nothing untoward about it. It’s about maximizing information we are taking in and measuring it against things, like the coach’s recommendation or the data,” Morgan said.

“There’s always been constant communication, verbal or physical, from the change room to the field to help improve my decisions as captain, to try and correlate the feeling of the flow of the game and what we feel are the right decisions against the data that we’ve already researched coming into the game and, as the game progresses, how that might change.

“It’s something that we’re experimenting with during the game to see if we can improve our performance on the field.”

Michael Vaughan said it was “nonsense”:

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan not happy with the idea, tweeting: “Signals sent from an analyst on a balcony to the captain on the pitch!!!! The world has officially gone nu8s!!!”

“If I were the England captain and the analyst suggested sending messages to me through signals from the dugout he would get short shrift,” he wrote.

“Absolutely no chance would I let that happen. I love innovation and always encourage new ideas and thinking but there is very little an analyst can tell you from the sidelines that you do not already know. I would be a bit worried that Eoin Morgan, a World Cup-winning captain, and Jos Buttler behind the stumps, cannot react instinctively to what is happening on the field.”

The signs showed lottery numbers, Jos Buttler joked:

England vice-captain Jos Buttler joked the signs showed lottery numbers before comparing them to the tactical time-out used in the Indian Premier League.

Buttler told Sky Sports jokingly: “[Leamon] was calling out the EuroMillions numbers – the lads were checking their tickets!

“Seriously, analysis has become such a huge part of the game. I don’t think Eoin needs too much help when he is out there, he is a fantastic captain, but he works closely with Nathan to come up with suggestions and certain match-ups. It was an offering of help. It’s just a little bit of an experiment.

England fast bowler Mark Wood, typically, saw the funny side:

“We’re always looking for ways to improve so maybe this is it – the analyst gets a scorecard like Craig Revel Horwood and we have a new game show,” Wood said.

“I thought they were shoe sizes at one point. Until this morning, I honestly didn’t even know about it. That’s how much notice I took.

The preparations for the draft of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season six are underway. According to sources, it is not decided that the process will be completed at the National Stadium Karachi or it could also be moved online, bypassing the physical staging altogether.

The possibility of holding the event in an open-air setting is being discussed because of the spread of the COVID-19.

The draft for Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 6 will be held in the first week of January with the matches starting from February 20. This was revealed by PCB’s Chief Executive Officer Wasim Khan to a group of journalists on Wednesday.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering holding the player draft for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021 in the first week of January.

The publication reported that the board is yet to decide on the involvement of players in the draft. It also said that the draft may be held virtually due to the rising COVID-19 cases.

The PCB is moving ahead with its preparations despite its continued differences with the franchises over the league’s pay structure. The move is an indication that the Board expects the differences to be resolved soon.

To a question about the unsettled financial matters between the PCB and PSL teams, the PCB CEO said that both parties were engaged in talks and hoped that issues will be resolved ahead of the draft.

“All dues till 2020 have been cleared while matters regarding the annual fee will be settled soon,” assured Wasim Khan.

Two of the four provinces will once again see no action of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) next year as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has confirmed that Peshawar’s Arbab Niaz Stadium and Quetta’s Bugti Stadium won’t be ready in time to host matches for the 2021 tournament.

The PCB, a few months ago, was confident that it would make Peshawar the fifth centre to host PSL matches next year but a board delegation visited the Arbab Niaz Stadium recently.

The delegation found that renovation work at the stadium was far behind schedule and, in turn, decided that it won’t be fit to host major matches by February.

Quetta’s Bugti Stadium, too, does not have what it takes to host matches of a certain standards, putting it out of the running as well.

Another Pakistan cricket team member in New Zealand has tested positive for Covid-19, taking the tally of infected individuals to seven.

Six members of the squad tested positive on Tuesday when the team landed in New Zealand from Pakistan and began its mandatory 14-day stay in managed isolation. The seventh member returned positive result when players and officials again were tested on the third day of their isolation period.

Pakistan squad was tested negative four times before leaving Lahore.

The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) decision to send Shaheens squad to New Zealand in an economy class flight rather than business could be the reason why the national contingent is hit by Covid-19 despite them clearing multiple tests in Pakistan, Daily Express reported on Saturday.

Seven members of the touring party have so far tested positive in the opening round of tests conducted in New Zealand. That coupled with their Covid-19 protocol violations have invited intense criticism from New Zealand authorities and become a source of embarrassment back home.

The Urdu publication, citing its sources, stated that the Pakistan Cricket Board and New Zealand authorities have been trying to solve the mystery of quite how the players were found infected when they were dispatched from Pakistan virus-free.

The most viable theory is that the PCB had split up the seniors and Shaheens squads into two: sending the former on the far more expensive business class and the latter in self-explanatory economy class – possibly in a bid to save up money.

The paper’s theory further states that while the plane’s business class was reserved for cricketers only, the Shaheens travelled with general public. Hence, they could have caught the virus there, before transmitting the same to the members of the seniors squad when reunited at airport lounge.

It is pertinent to mention that the PCB has sent to New Zealand a giant 34-man playing squad, which comprises the seniors and Shaheens but their players would remain interchangeable for each other.

The authorities in New Zealand have started to ease some restrictions on the Pakistan Cricket squad that is currently in a managed isolation facility in Christchurch.

A team source confirmed that following a discussion between board officials and two negative tests of 47 members of the squad, some exemptions were granted to the players and officials.

“Those who have returned with two negative COVID-19 test results since arrival in New Zealand are now allowed to have a walk in an adjacent ground during the allocated time to their group,” the source said.

Andre Russell hammered a 14-ball fifty as Colombo Kings smashed a record 96 runs from five overs in a staggering rain-shortened Lanka Premier League clash against Galle Gladiators.

The Jamaican hit 13 of the 19 balls he faced to the boundary – nine fours and four sixes – en route to an unbeaten 65 in a Colombo innings in which Surrey’s Laurie Evans contributed 21 not out from 10 balls after Russell’s fellow opener Thikshila de Silva had been removed for a golden duck.

Russell managed three more runs on his own than Galle did as a team with Gladiators scoring 62 in the chase to lose by 34 runs in Hambantota.

Kings, who had been put into bat by Galle captain Shahid Afridi, powered the highest score in any reduced five-over-a-side match, with Russell taking the Gladiators’ attack apart.

The 32-year-old nailed three fours and two sixes in Mohammad Amir’s first over and followed that with a six and three fours off Asitha Fernando in the second.

Russell was on 44 from 11 balls and a six away from matching the fastest T20 half-century in history but could only take one from the 12th delivery he faced and had to wait two more balls to hit the milestone.

He reached it with a four behind point off Amir, whose two overs went for a combined 46 runs with Evans also smashing the Pakistan quick for consecutive sixes.

Russell then struck a four and a six in Shahid Afridi’s 13-run final over as Kings fell just four runs short of three figures in a quite startling innings.

Speaking at the post-match presentation, Russell said that his spectacular innings came despite his timing being a little off – but credited his bat speed as the reason he is able to hit the ball such a long way.

“You just have to back yourself – see ball, hit ball. It’s all about the bat speed, I swing real hard and that’s why most times I get the ball good on the bat it tends to go a long way.

“I have been struggling to hit the ball for the last two months as clean as I would want to – even today I didn’t quite middle it as I wanted to but I appreciate the edges and luck that goes my way.

“I didn’t quite time most of those balls but it goes to show that when you swing hard the ball will still go over the ropes.”

Here’s the HIGHLIGHTS of Russel’s Inning:

Some prominent voices in the New Zealand community are calling for Pakistan cricketers to be punished for breaching the SOPs in place due to the COVID-19.

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) confirmed on Thursday that six members of the Pakistan team, currently in managed isolation in Christchurch, have tested positive for Covid-19.

New Zealand broadcaster, Chris Lynch, in his column for New Zealand Herald, was critical of the Pakistan team for breaking the strict isolation rules at a Christchurch hotel and said ‘Pakistan cricketers should be punished’.

“It is a privilege, not a right to be granted access to New Zealand. There are plenty of Kiwis unable to return home because managed isolation facilities are fully booked. Pakistan shouldn’t be granted any special exemptions in the first place, either they’re in managed isolation or they’re not,” Lynch wrote.

“I feel grateful to live in a country where Covid-19 has not taken a foothold. If others are unclear about their responsibilities, the threat of a plane ticket home should help ease any confusion,” he added.

D’Arcy Waldegrave, a radio broadcaster in New Zealand, termed the Pakistan team ‘astonishingly arrogant’ and wants the New Zealand government to set an example out of the Men in Green.

“Let’s make example of anyone playing fast and loose with our border generosity,” Waldegrave said.

Nick Wilson, a professor from the Department of Public Health at the University of Otago, said the issue with the Pakistan team indicates that New Zealand’s border control system was not effective.

“We really need a major re-look at the system,” Wilson told Radio New Zealand on Friday.

“What we probably need is a traffic light system, so that things are much more stringent for people coming from high-risk red zone countries like Pakistan, the US, and the UK.”

In Reply, Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar, lashed out at New Zealand Cricket (NZC) for their comments to send the Men in Green home.

“New Zealand’s comment that if Pakistan’s team’s SOP (standard operating procedures) is not in place then we will cancel the tour is below the belt,” Akhtar said.

“I want to give a message to New Zealand board (NZC) that this is not a club team, it’s Pakistan national cricket team. We don’t need you. Our cricket has not finished. You will get the broadcasting rights money. So, you should be indebted to us that we decided to tour your country in such difficult times.”

“You are talking about Pakistan – the greatest country on the planet – so behave yourself and stop giving such statement. Be careful next time. Pakistan team now needs to smash them in T20 series,” he added.
