Flintoff all praise for Pietersen

Ahmedabad: England captain Andrew Flintoff today attributed his side's thrilling three-wicket win over West Indies to a classy unbeaten knock from Kevin Pietersen and said that the success would help his side "develop" ahead of the coming battles including the Ashes.


"It was an important game for the team. West Indies were the in-form side. We wanted somebody to take the responsibility and win the game for us. And Kevin did it with class," Flintoff said at the post-match media meet here.


"Pietersen was fantastic. He steadied the ship after we had a bit of a wobble in the middle. He paced the innings well," Flintoff said after England won a consolation victory in the Champions Trophy after having gone out of reckoning following back-to-back losses in the first two games.


"He is a fine player. And if he continues to bat like this, the team will be stronger," he said.


Flintoff said that the draw also helped his team salvage some pride after their pathetic show in the earlier matches. "The team's pride was at stake today. We have done well to win".


West Indies captain Brian Lara traced the cause for his side's loss to his bowlers' inability to contain the English top order and his batsmen's failure to put up 10-15 runs more after a solid start.


"In the first 15 overs, we allowed England a lot of runs. We let them get too much free hits. And I feel that we fell probably 10-15 runs short of what we should have got," he said.

Younis Khan shies away in defeat

Saturday, October 28, 2006

Mohali: One thing that is quite un-sportsmanlike with Pakistan cricket captain Younis Khan is that he shies away in defeat. The two back-to-back defeats for his side showed just that during the ICC Champions Trophy.


It was a "no-show" from the Pakistan skipper in the post-match media briefings after both the defeats here. Coach Bob Woolmer was in the firing line for questions from journalists after Pakistan's humiliating defeat in both matches.


The South African put up a brave face - he had nothing else to do after the miserable show by the Pakistani side - and even tried to be humorous at times. But that reflected his frustration even more.


When asked where the Pakistan side would go from here - after being bowled out for 89 runs against South Africa in their crucial match Friday - Woolmer smiled and said: "To the hotel, of course."

Yuvraj injured, Sachin hurt; India's task gets tougher vs Australia

Sunday, October 29, 2006

Mohali: "Losing's not nice," murmured Rahul Dravid on Saturday, ahead of what will be India's biggest game in recent times.


Well, the world's not always a nice place and the Indian skipper, who seemed out of sorts (not surprisingly) while facing the media, will probably feel a lot worse on the morrow unless his players come up with something special.


And straight off, with the dramatic loss of Yuvraj Singh, last year's top run-getter in One-day cricket and a vital cog in any Indian plan, Dravid will be at a massive disadvantage.


For on Sunday, India meet Australia in a match that will see the winner move into the Champions Trophy semifinal, under conditions that will be more to the world champions' liking than their own.


The wicket they will play on is not the wickedly seaming one used in the Pakistan-South Africa game on Friday but, as Dravid said, the basic nature of a track cannot be changed.


The bounce and the carry will be there and if there is a fair bit of movement too on Sunday, then India, especially on form, will need at least one person to play an outstanding knock and a couple of others to back up in style to even think of a win.


It won't be easy unless Australia play out of character and collapse.


Otherwise, it never is while playing the world's most consistent team under any conditions. And then, as Ricky Ponting stated when the Oz juggernaut first landed in India, they want this crown quite badly.


The mini World Cup is the only trophy to have eluded Australia, who have otherwise swept all before them as they have marched across the world with a missionary zeal and some ruthless professionalism.


Incidentally, if India do not make it to the last four, then this will be the first time since the inaugural World Cup in 1975 that an Asian team has not made it to the semifinal of a major event. And ironically, it would be in the subcontinent.

Australia beats india

Australia cruised to an easy victory against India to book their place in the Champions Trophy semi-finals and knock the hosts out of the tournament.

Ricky Ponting's side won by six wickets after racing to their target of 250 with four overs to spare in Mohali.

India compiled a modest 249-8 with Virender Sehwag scoring 65 and Rahul Dravid adding 52 off 63 balls.

But Australia's batting was too strong as Ponting (58), Shane Watson (50) and Damien Martyn (73 not out) starred.

Australia will play New Zealand in Wednesday's semi-final in Mohali, while South Africa take on West Indies in Jaipur on Thursday.

The last time there was no presence from a sub-continental country in the last four of a major tournament was the 1975 World Cup.

606: DEBATE
Surely Australia have to be the favourites now

RD
606: Have your say

Australia's openers Adam Gilchrist and Watson launched the reply with a stand of 61 before wicket-keeper Gilchrist fell for 23 from 24 balls.

Watson and Ponting took Australia through the 100-mark in just 14 overs and added 50 before Watson, who needed Gilchrist as a runner after suffering from cramp,was trapped lbw by left-arm spinner Dinesh Mongia.

Ponting eventually fell to a Sachin Tendulkar catch in the slips off seamer Shanthakumaran Sreesanth but Martyn, Andrew Symonds (20) and Michael Clarke (2 not out), had the luxury of guiding the Australians home.


Sehwag laid the early foundations with 65 for India

India's total was modest given the state of the pitch, and though they batted carefully, they were unable to hit top gear, with Australia taking wickets at the right times.

Veteran seamer Glenn McGrath was the pick of the Australian attack with 2-34 off 10, while fellow paceman Brett Lee, expensive in his first spell, fought back superbly for 2-54 and Nathan Bracken finished with 2-56.

India won the toss and Tendulkar and Sehwag began promisingly with a stand of 46 before Tendulkar, who took 13 balls to get off the mark, edged McGrath behind to Gilchrist for 10.

Mongia and Sehwag built on the good work but were foiled after a stand of 43 when Mongia edged Watson to Michael Hussey at slip for 18.

India's run rate slowed as Australia shuffled their bowlers, changing the angle of attack, but Sehwag crafted 37 with Dravid before he was trapped lbw by Mitchell Johnson in the 29th over.

Dravid kept the scoreboard ticking in a stand of 60 with Mohammad Kaif (30) before holing out to Clarke at mid-wicket off Lee.

And two overs later, Lee, who was back on song after conceding 43 runs in his first six-over spell, ripped through Kaif's middle stump.

India tried to hit the accelerator but Suresh Raina was caught in the deep by Watson off Nathan Bracken for 13 after adding 27 runs with Mahendra Dhoni.

McGrath struck again late on to remove Irfan Pathan (10), caught by Martyn, and Dhoni was out lbw to Bracken with the last ball for 28.

Waiting on for shoiab and asif

Asif and Shoaib are facing the prospect of a lengthy ban
Pakistan pace bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif must wait a few more days to find out whether they will be banned for failing a drugs test.
A Pakistan Cricket Board tribunal was due to announce a decision on Saturday.

But the three-man panel have extended the inquiry until Wednesday to obtain statements from coach Bob Woolmer and two members of his backroom team.

Shoaib and Asif were sent home from the Champions Trophy in India after testing positive for a banned steroid.

They have both accepted results which showed traces of nandrolone and have waived their right to have tests carried out on their "B" samples.

If found guilty, the pair could face a two-year ban, the minimum for a first offence under International Cricket Council doping rules, which would rule them out of the World Cup which takes place next March and April.

We don't know if they took it inadvertently or intentionally

PCB chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf

However, the Pakistan Cricket Board has said it will take its own decision because the tests were conducted internally.

Both bowlers were questioned for more than two hours on Saturday, having already recorded formal statements the previous day.

Woolmer, trainer Murray Stevenson and physio Darren Lifesun are likely to be the final witnesses called before the tribunal.

Former Pakistani president dies


Khan maintained political silence since he resigned in 1993
Former president of Pakistan, Ghulam Ishaq Khan, has died after a long illness at the age of 91.
Khan died in the northern city of Peshawar on Friday morning. His family said he was suffering from pneumonia.

He became the president after former military ruler, Zia ul-Haq, was killed in a plane crash in 1988.

Khan resigned in 1993, when his controversial dismissal of the Nawaz Sharif government, and its restoration by the courts, created a crisis.

In a message of condolence, Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf described Khan as "an honest, upright person", while Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz said his contributions to Pakistan would be long remembered.

Controversial dismissals

Khan was born in the village of Ismailkhel in Bannu district in North-West Frontier Province in 1915, and graduated in chemistry before joining the Indian provincial civil service.

He served in various secretarial positions in India and Pakistan before and after partition.

During the regime of Gen Zia in the 1980s, Khan diversified into politics, becoming a federal minister and later chairman of the Senate.

But he is better known for his role as president when he dismissed two consecutive elected governments of Benazir Bhutto and Nawaz Sharif in 1990 and 1993.

Though both dismissals were controversial, the latter cost him his job when the military intervened and forced both Khan and Nawaz Sharif to resign.

Since then, Khan lived a quiet life in his Peshawar residence, making no public appearances and granting no interviews to the media.

Ash-Abhi Marriage Rumor a Publicity Stunt?
Faridoon Shahryar, IndiaGlitz [Saturday, October 28, 2006]



The rumor that has been done to death is doing the rounds once again. If a Kannada newspaper 'Vijaya Karnataka' is to be believed then Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan will be tying the knot in February next year and Ash may well be making a formal announcement on November 1st which happens to be her birthday.

Chandrakant Swamiji, a well known astrologer who it is being said is also the family astrologer of Bachchans told the paper that he had asked the couple not to marry in the current year as 2006 adds up to 2+6= 8 which is unlucky for Aishwarya while 2007 is a lucky number for Rai.

The rumors of the impending marriage and the blossoming romance had surfaced when the duo had been shooting for JP Dutta's 'Umrao Jaan'. And now suddenly these rumors have resurfaced once again and that too right before the release of the same film 'Umrao Jaan'. So, is there heart in this romance or all this glib talk is nothing but a publicity stunt to add spice in a film that's hardly creating any curiosity. I have a gut feeling no announcement will take place on Ash's birthday and the conjectures will head towards another date for announcement. And the media circus will continue unabated.

Is it a case of media intruding in celebrity life or is the fodder coming from celebrities themselves to further their film careers (Aishwarya hasn't had a hit in ages)….The debate is open for discussion…Do let us know your thoughts…
