Cricket News Pakistan Playing Matches In UAE Not An Option Anymore: Cricket Board CEO

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: The Pakistan Cricket Team have endured a torrid decade ever since the terror attack on the Sri Lanka team in March 2009 stopped international tours to the country. Many international teams have refused to tour the country and Pakistan were forced to play their ‘home’ series in the United Arab Emirates. However, in the interim, some teams did tour the country. Zimbabwe ended Pakistan’s international isolation when they toured for three ODIs in 2015 and this was followed by tours by the ICC World XI, the West Indies team, Sri Lanka in 2017. Now, the Sri Lankan cricket team will play three ODIs and three T20Is after much deliberation over the security of the country. Looking at the situation, Pakistan Cricket Board CEO Wasim Khan has said playing matches in the UAE is’not an option’ anymore as they look to cut down on costs and capitalise on the improving security situation at home. “It costs us a lot of money hosting there. Frankly speaking the security situation has improved in Pakistan and security experts have also assessed that we are in a position to manage security risks while hosting teams in the country,” PCB CEO Wasim Khan said, adding that Pakistan had not paid any money to the Sri Lankan team to tour the country. Also Read | Kamran Akmal, Pakistan Wicketkeeper Is Better Than Adam Gilchrist – Here Is Statistical ProofPakistan has expressed interest to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to play Test matches in the World Test Championship against them at home and not in a neutral venue. However, in the case of India, the PCB CEO wanted the resumption of bilateral ties and also proposed that matches between India and Pakistan can take place in a neutral venue. Also Read | Misbah-ul-Haq Highlights Key Factors Behind Pakistan Team Selection For Sri Lanka Series”If they also express the desire to play against us we would be willing to even play at a neutral venue as it is important that India and Pakistan play cricket. Cricket is a great way of bringing people together and cricket should remain cricket. We will play with India. I will be happy to explore possibilities of playing them,” Wasim Khan said. The first match of the series against Sri Lanka will begin on September 27 and it will three ODIs at the National Stadium in Karachi. The ODI series will be followed by an three-match Twenty20 International series which will take place in Lahore. last_img read more

Ice Bucket mania inflicts Sumner County… don’t forget to donate to ALS

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — If you are on social media, you can’t help but see it. People are taking the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. It’s a quite simple game. You issue a challenge to three people on video that within 24 hours they must pour a bucket of ice water over their heads.  All to help donate or provide awareness for ALS. To learn how to donate click here. It started as a lark.. then celebrities got into the act… then people on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. started pouring cold ice water over their head as a challenge.Now, people in Sumner County especially in Wellington are getting into the act. Yours truly counted 24 different postings Monday night of people doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.While the rules say with the ALS ice bucket challenge is to either donate money OR get a bucket of ice water dumped on your head, others are saying people should donate AND get a bucket of ice water dumped on your head. Others can simply donate to the cause without getting water dumped on their head.How you play the game is your business, but Sumner Newscow likes the option of charitable giving.Here are a few things about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and how it got started:•The earliest known version of this challenge was known as the “Cold Water Challenge.” It was started by the Sheaves For Christ division in New Zealand with a video dated April 26, 2014 challenging others to donate $100 to the mission’s fundraiser.•The challenge was popularized in the United States on June 30, 2014 when the Golf Channel Morning Show televised the social media phenomena and performed a live on-air ice bucket challenge. Soon after, on July 15, 2014 golfer Chris Kennedy did the ice-bucket challenge and challenged his cousin whose husband had ALS for 11 years. A day later she did it in front of her house and the movement began in earnest.•The ice bucket challenge has taken up speed. One can say the ice bucket challenge hit Sumner County in full force last week and by Tuesday it has become a local phenomenon.•The ALS Association announced that it had received $15.6 million in donations compared to $1.8 million during the same time period July 29 to August 18 in the prior year. These donations came from both existing donors and 307,598 new donors to the Association. So what is ALS?ALS is an acronym for Amotrophic lateral sclerosis. A lot of people call it the Lou Gehrig’s Disease – a famous New York Yankee baseball player in the 1920s and 30s who died of the disease in 1941.The disorder causes muscle weakness and atrophy throughout the body due to the degeneration of the upper and lower motor neurons. Individuals affected by the disorder may ultimately lose the ability to initiate and control all voluntary movement.People inflicted with ALS will notice awkwardness when walking or running or notice they are tripping and stumbling. Some may experience slurred speech and have trouble swallowing.Overtime, patients experience more difficult moving, swallowing and speaking or forming words. Pneumonia can develop and maintaining a healthy weight. Eventually people with ALS die of respiratory failure or pneumonia.If you have a ice bucket challenge you would like to share with the public on Sumner Newscow, we will gladly promote it providing you make a donation to ALS.

Adrian Durham: Why Wayne Rooney deserves a fond farewell at Wembley

first_imgDo you take enough time to smell the roses? I mean really get your nose in there, and inhale the soothing scent, the fresh fragrance of natural beauty of a flower. Try it with freesias and you’ll understand what I mean.Do you take time out to cherish, enjoy and indulge in the things in life that you love? I am a voracious reader. The education and enrichment from all kinds of books fill me with joy. Maybe music does it for you, or films, or walking. But whatever it is, do you spend enough time doing it?Life is too short, and we literally can’t have everything we want – that’s a harsh reality. But we should immerse ourselves, when work and commitments allow – in the things that bring us joy whenever possible. It can’t all be work, work, work. It can’t be all about being in places you don’t want to be, speaking with people you don’t want to speak with, eating things you don’t want to eat, wasting your life doing things you don’t want to do. Deep, eh?It’s all leading up to me explaining why I will be taking time to go to Wembley for an England friendly against the USA this week. revealed Gerrard launches furious touchline outburst as horror tackle on Barisic sparks chaos I’ve always been an admirer of Wayne Rooney, in the face of the sometimes OTT and inexplicable negativity surrounding him, I’ve stood firm in my support of Wayne. He’s England’s record goalscorer, he’s England’s record outfield appearance maker, and I think a small part of England’s World Cup semi-final appearance is down to Wayne. Not because he set up a goal in England’s qualifying win over Scotland, but more because he was captain at a time of great turmoil. After the disaster against Iceland came the turbulence of Big Sam coming and going, before Gareth Southgate stumbled into the job.The work goes unnoticed, but Wayne, as captain, held the players together during that time, and then showed no bitterness in public after Gareth Southgate decided his England days were over. It was a small contribution to England’s road to Russia, but Wayne helped at a crucial time. No medals or plaudits required, but a tiny nod of acknowledgement.I was there at Stoke when Rooney smashed in a wonderful free kick to break the Manchester United scoring record. I was there at Wembley when Rooney broke the England scoring record and it clearly meant so very much to him – both records did. RANKED Most Read In Football The biggest cheers at Wembley from the authentic England fanbase have always been for Wayne, as they were for David Beckham before him. Tournament-only fans probably don’t realise this. It means that us authentic England fans really want to give Wayne a fond farewell.Sure Wayne had his bad moments, in 119 games they will happen of course. But England fans have been so starved of success, and endured so much pain, I love the idea of using the USA friendly to take a moment to respect a record holder, and celebrate his England career.
