MI Emirates Sign Four UAE Domestic Players As Sides Reveal Local Picks For The ILT20

New Delhi, Dec 9, MI Emirates on Friday announced the signing of four local UAE players in its squad for the inaugural season of the International League T20 (ILT20) in January (2023). The new players who have been signed up by the franchise are Muhammad Waseem, Basil Hameed, Vriitya Aravind, and Zahoor Khan. Waseem, 28, represents the UAE side in ODIs and T20Is. He is listed as the 14th-best batsman on the ICC men's T20 batting ratings. Hameed is an off-spin all-rounder, while Zahoor is a right-arm medium fast-bowler who debuted for the UAE in 2017. Aravind, the 20-year-old is a top-order batsman with more than 500 runs in T20I, is also the vice-captain of the UAE team. MI Emirates, led by Kieron Pollard will be based in Abu Dhabi and feature star T20 players like Dwyane Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Imran Tahir and Trent Boult.

In the ILT20, six teams are eligible to pick four UAE players each and have to get two local players in the starting XI of each side in every match of the tournament. Today is an extremely rewarding day. We continue to reiterate that at its heart the league is built on a foundation of development for UAE Cricket and the UAE players. To be in the position to now share with the cricketing world that we have delivered on this mandate, with the support of and commitment from our franchises, that 24 of the best available UAE talent has been secured (by the franchises) is an incredible day for Emirates Cricket and the Board. We are delighted that alongside a number of capped players the performance and development teams identified a number of budding uncapped players from an exceptionally deep pool on offer, said Mubashshir Usmani, General Secretary Emirates Cricket. Making its debut in January (2023), the inaugural ILT20 has received multi-year ICC approval. It will be played across the UAE's world-class cricket facilities in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

South Africa Batter Mignon Du Preez Announces Retirement From International Cricket

South Africa women's batter Mignon du Preez on Friday announced her retirement from all forms of international cricket, including T20Is after a career spanning almost 16 years in the green and gold jersey. Mignon, South Africa's most-capped female cricketer, made her last international appearance at the inaugural Women's Cricket T20 tournament at the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in August. She previously retired from Tests and ODIs earlier in the year after taking part in the 2022 ODI World Cup in New Zealand. Fifteen years of international cricket, WOW, what a blessing it has beenIt's never an easy decision to step away from something you love as much as I love cricket, but I know in my heart that the time is right for me to announce my retirement from all forms of international cricket. However, I will continue to play the shorter format of the game in the global leagues until such a time that I am blessed to become a mom and start a family of my own. Now for all the thank yous... said Mignon in her retirement speech, where she expressed gratitude to the Almighty and her husband Tony. She broke into the T20I setup in August 2007, seven months after making her South Africa debut as a 17-year-old in ODIs. At the time of retirement, Mignon, 33, has played in 114 T20Is, scoring 1,805 runs at an average of 20.98, including seven half-centuries and a high score of 69 against Ireland at Solihull in 2014. A special thank you has to go to my dad for being my very first Mini-Cricket coach and for being the one who made me fall in love with this beautiful game. I am truly blessed with the best parents anyone could ever ask for. Thank you, mom and dad, for being such amazing role models and for always encouraging me to use my God-given talent. A special thank you has to go to Peter Harold and Curtly Diesel that invested hours into taking my game to the next level in the last couple of years. To Northerns Cricket Union, thank you for being my 'home base' since I was 10 years old and for naming a Gate in my honour at SuperSport Park, she added. In that period, Mignon has also represented South Africa in a staggering seven ICC Women's T20 World Cups since the inaugural edition in 2009. After being appointed the full-time national captain in 2011, the experienced batter donned captaincy duties on 50 occasions -- a record for South African women's cricket. To the fans, thank you for your ongoing support through the highs, but especially during the lows. You guys drive us to be better cricketers and to put on a show every time we step onto the field. To CSA, thank you for your continuous support, allowing me the opportunity to captain my country and for finally making women's cricket a viable career option in SA. To my teammates, thank you for all the memories that I can treasure for a lifetime. It was an honour to share the changing room and field with each one of you. I will miss you all tremendously but can't wait to follow your journeys to success and I will definitely be rooting for you from the sidelines in the future. I will definitely miss the change room chats, the off-field friendships from all around the globe, travelling and learning about different cultures. However, I am extremely excited about the next phase of my life together with the ones that I love dearly and that have taken a back seat during the last 15 years of my career, she elaborated. Mignon enjoyed her best season, statistically, in 2014 where she helped South Africa qualify for their first-ever T20 World Cup semifinal in Bangladesh. She ended that year with 369 runs from 20 matches, scoring at 24.60 with a strike rate of 91.56. She was also a member of the Proteas squad that secured a second T20 World Cup semifinal appearance in Australia in 2020 where they went down to the eventual champions via the Duckworth-Lewis and Stern (DLS) method. Mignon would lead South Africa into the 2022 ODI World Cup semifinal with a last-ball victory over India in the final league match before South Africa lost to future runners-up England in the semi-final. This is a bittersweet moment for South African cricket and the world at large as we bid farewell to one of the game's favourite characters on the international stage. Over the last 16 years, du Preez's professionalism and commitment shown towards her country have been exemplary, not only to those who follow in her footsteps but also to her teammates and peers in the game. Mignon would lead South Africa into the 2022 ODI World Cup semifinal with a last-ball victory over India in the final league match before South Africa lost to future runners-up England in the semi-final.

India vs Australia, 1st T20I IND-W vs AUS-W Cricket Match Preview, Prediction, Where To Watch, Probable XI And Fantasy XI Tips

Commonwealth Games silver medallist team India are all set to host T20 World Champions Australia women's team for a 5-match T20I series at home. IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I: Match Preview: Team India are on a good roll in T20Is this year, with 13 wins in 20 games. This included an Asia Cup title and a silver medal at Commonwealth Games. Indian Women's team would look to finish the year off on a high with a win against World Champions Australia. However, the Alyssa Healy-led side is a much tougher competition as compared to teams who participated in the Asia Cup. Australia has a strong lineup and have an impressive record against India (6-1). It will also be a challenge for Hrishikesh Kanitkar, who recently took over as the batting coach while Ramesh Powar was shifted to NCA to work with the Men's team. Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues and Shafali Verma have been shouldering the batting for team India this year and are the top three run-getters this year for the team. The batting will revolve around these three along with captain Harmanpreet Kaur. However, apart from Harmanpreet and Jemimah, all the other batters have struggled against the Australian team. In bowling, Renuka Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Deepti Sharma have picked up 17 wickets combined against Australia since 2021 and will head the bowling department against World Champions. Richa Ghosh and Shafali Verma would also look to kick off their U19 T20 World Cup preparations, which is scheduled to be played next month. While Australia's regular captain Meg Lanning has taken an indefinite break from cricket, Alyssa Healy will be leading the Australian side in the 5-match T20I series against India. Tahlia McGrath (289 runs) and Beth Mooney (244 runs) have been the top scorers for Australia this year in T20Is and would shoulder the batting along with Ellyse Perry and Healy. Healy had an off-season in the T20Is recently with only 78 runs in 9 innings, but her good run in WBBL would give provide her with some confidence. Alana King has been the lead wicket-taker for Australia this year and is expected to enjoy bowling in the Indian conditions and should favour her leg-spinning attribute. Jess Jonassen, Tahlia McGrath and Megan Schutt would be the key bowlers for the Australian team against India women's team. IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I: Match Details Date Friday, December 9, 2022 Time 07:00 PM IST Venue Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Mumbai Match Prediction: Today's Match Prediction? IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I The 1st match between two competitive teams is expected to go down the wire with no clear favourites between India and Australia women's team. IND-W vs AUS-W Head-to-Head: Total 25 India Women 6 Australia Women 18 No Result 1 IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I: Where to Watch? The ODI series between India and Bangladesh will be broadcasted by Star Sports network while it will be broadcasted digitally on the OTT platform Hotstar app. IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I Team News: India Women Pooja Vastrakar wasn't available for selection in this series and the selectors have left Sneh Rana, Kiran Navgire and Dayalan Hemalatha out of the squad. Harleen Deol and Yastika Bhatia make their return after being dropped for England series and Asia Cup. Uncapped Anjali Sarvani and Devika Vaidya, who played her last T20I in November 2014, have been included in the team. Australia Women Phoebe Litchfield and Kim Garth previously represented Ireland in Women's Cricket and now are on their maiden tour for the Australian team. Heather Graham represented Australia in ODI back in October 2019 and has also been included in the squad. IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I Probable Playing XI: India Women Yastika Bhatia, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Sabbhineni Meghana, Harleen Deol, Harmanpreet Kaur(C), Deepti Sharma, Renuka Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Radha Yadav Australia Women Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Tahlia McGrath, Kim Garth, Alana King, Nicola Carey, Alyssa Healy(C), Annabel Sutherland, Jess Jonassen, Megan Schutt Also Read: Roston Chase Picks Up His All-Time XI, Includes 3 Indians IND vs BAN 3rd ODI Fantasy XI: Wicket-keeper Alyssa Healy Batters Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues (vc), Beth Mooney (c), Ellyse Perry All-rounders Deepti Sharma, Ashleigh Gardner, Tahlia McGrath Bowlers Renuka Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Jess Jonassen

Colombo, Dec 8, Sri Lankan all-rounder Chamika Karunaratne will be available for selection for the rest of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) despite undergoing an emergency dental surgery following a fielding mishap during the game between Kandy Falcons and Galle Gladiators The incident took place in the fourth over of the match, when Karunaratne ran back from cover to take an over-the-shoulder catch off Carlos Brathwaite's bowling. While Karunaratne held on to the chance, it was not before the ball landed flush on his face, dislodging several teeth. The 26-year old was rushed to the hospital immediately after the accident, where he underwent surgery. Karunaratne is understood to have lost four teeth in his lower frontal jaw, while also sustaining lacerations on his lower lip and gums. However, the cricketer is stable and out of danger.

Ahead of the game against Gladiators, the all-rounder had spoken to the host broadcaster about his ambitions and using his time with Falcons as a platform to return to the national side. For the last two years I had just one bad month, that was not my 100 percent. New month, new LPL. Last year I did really well, so this year I also want to do well. I was just in Abu Dhabi (for the T10 league) and had a good tournament, so now I just want to get back into my rhythm and get back into the national team, said Karunaratne. Falcons' next match is against Jaffna Kings, a top-of-the-table clash on Saturday when the action moves to Pallekele. For the last two years I had just one bad month, that was not my 100 percent.

Selection Depends On Performances, Those Who Have Done Well Are In The Side: Harmanpreet Kaur

Mumbai, Dec 8, In their five T20Is against Australia starting from Friday at the DY Patil Stadium, India have left out off-spin all-rounders Sneh Rana and Dayalan Hemalatha as well as big-hitting batter Kiran Navgire, who was seen as a finisher in the side. Instead, they have brought in left-arm fast-bowler Anjali Sarvani, who topped the bowling charts in the Senior Women's T20 Trophy (with 17 scalps) and Senior Women's Inter-Zonal T20 Trophy (10 wickets). Alongside her, leg-spin allrounder Devika Vaidya also marks a return to the T20I setup after eight years. On the eve of the series opener, captain Harmanpreet Kaur said the door to the India T20I team was not closed on Sneh, Dayalan, and Kiran, but that consistent domestic performers like Anjali and Devika have been rewarded with call-ups to the national team. The members of the team have performed well, especially the new girls who have done really well in the domestic circuit. If you talk about Anjali, she took the highest wickets and then others have done well too and won matches for their respective teams. Selection depends on your performances and those who have done well are in the side. For Sneh Rana and all are good players; in the upcoming tournaments whenever they'll do well, they'll definitely come back. We are always having an eye on them. It's not like if today they are not on the side, we are ignoring them. Definitely they are part of the system and when they perform, they will come back, she said in the pre-match press conference. ] When India will play against Australia in the T20I series opener on Friday, the equal pay policy, which was announced in October, will come into effect. As per the policy, India women's players will get INR 15 lakh per Test match, INR 6 lakh per ODI, and INR 3 lakh for a T20I game. Harmanpreet believes that equal pay policy will bring more responsibility on women cricketers. It's an outstanding decision taken by the BCCI. As a sportsperson, we always want to get that recognition, and equal pay is something which will bring a lot of motivation for the current players and the upcoming stars. The motivation given by the BCCI that gives us a lot of responsibility now because whenever we go out to play now, we know many people are watching us and want to give our 100 per cent. We have played really well, and the last three months have been very special for the way we played. We are looking very positive and with Hrishi sir (Hrishikesh Kanitkar as batting coach) in, he also brings in a lot of positivity. Harmanpreet also thinks that pay parity will bring a change towards how women's cricket is viewed in the country and that it should extend to domestic competitions in future. This was the first step, and I am sure, going forward, there will be a lot of good news for women's cricket. For that, we have to take a lot of responsibility as a team and play very good cricket. We have been reaching finals of the tournament but could not lift the major titles. But still, the way we are playing has changed a lot of things in the country. I am sure the BCCI must be thinking about (equal pay) in domestic cricket as well. Domestic cricket is very important. Now, the Women's IPL is coming, and all those things will be important for domestic cricketers. There is money involved, and with that we will get a lot of good domestic matches. Things are and will come to you. We just need to perform. Harmanpreet revealed that opener Shafali Verma and wicketkeeper-batter Richa Ghosh will not play all five T20Is against Australia due to the duo being a part of the India squad for the inaugural Under-19 Women's T20 World Cup in South Africa. With the tournament happening in January, they will also miss the tri-series featuring hosts' South Africa and West Indies due to the clash of dates. The tri-series marked an important preparation for the Indian team in the lead-up to the senior Women's T20 World Cup from February 10-26. The U-19 camp will start after a few days and for Richa and Shafali, this tournament (against Australia) is important. They are part of the U-19 World Cup, but before that if they get a chance to play against Australia, it will boost their confidence. Till the (India U19) camp is announced, they will definitely join the Under-19 camp as Shafali is leading. When we will play the tri-series in South Africa, they are definitely not available because they will be playing the Under-19 World Cup. For that, we have other players who will come in and join, she concluded. The U-19 camp will start after a few days and for Richa and Shafali, this tournament (against Australia) is important. They are part of the U-19 World Cup, but before that if they get a chance to play against Australia, it will boost their confidence.

All-rounder Ashmini Munisar To Lead West Indies In Inaugural ICC Women's U19 T20 World Cup

St John's (Antigua), Dec 8, Batting all-rounder Ashmini Munisar on Thursday was named as captain of the West Indies side for the inaugural edition of the ICC Women's U19 T20 World Cup, to be played from January 14 to 29 in South Africa next year. Ashmini had captained the West Indies team on their tours to the USA in August and last month in India, where they featured in a quadrangular series alongside Sri Lanka U19, India A and B U19 sides in Visakhapatnam. It is every cricketer's dream to play for their country let alone be able to captain their team, it is an immense honour that I get to do it at this historic inaugural ICC Women's U19 World Cup. We have been playing together for the past few months and all the players are gelling and progressing quite nicely and we're all excited to represent the West Indies, she said in an official statement. The inaugural edition of ICC Women's U19 T20 World Cup will feature 16 teams playing in 41 matches to be hosted in Benoni and Potchefstroom. The official warm-up matches will be held from January 9 to 11. The Under 19 girls T20 World Cup will be an historic event being the first of its kind in women's international cricket. In preparation for this the team embarked on tours of the USA and the recent Tri Series in India against the hosts and New Zealand. These series have identified some competent up and coming batters like Djenaba Joseph, Shunelle Sawh and Trishan Holder who are showing potential to transition to a higher level. We also had excellent performances from the two main spinners, captain Ashmini Munisar and Shalini Samaroo, said Ann Browne-John, Lead Selector. West Indies have been drawn in Group C alongside New Zealand, Ireland, and Indonesia. They will open their campaign against Ireland on January 15, followed by matches against Indonesia (January 17) and New Zealand (January 19). Top three teams from each group will progress to the Super Six round, where teams will be pooled into two groups of six. We've held training camps over the past few months and the preparation will culminate with a final camp to be held in Antigua this month. This international exposure would no doubt be extremely beneficial, not only to this group of players, but also serve as an investment and feeder group into the senior West Indies Women's set up, added Ann. The top two teams from each group in the Super Six stage will then progress to the semi-finals, which will be played on January 27 at JB Marks Oval in Potchefstroom. The final will take place at the same venue on January 29. West Indies squad: Ashmini Munisar (captain), Asabi Callendar, Jahzara Claxton, Naijanni Cumberbatch, Earnisha Fontaine, Jannillea Glasgow, Realanna Grimmond, Trishan Holder, Zaida James, Djenaba Joseph, K D Jazz Mitchell, Shalini Samaroo, Shunelle Sawh, Lena Scott, and Abini St Jean The top two teams from each group in the Super Six stage will then progress to the semi-finals, which will be played on January 27 at JB Marks Oval in Potchefstroom. The final will take place at the same venue on January 29.

Indian Team In Right Hands; Hrishikesh Sir Brings In A Lot Of Experience, Says Skipper Harmanpreet Kaur

Mumbai, Dec 8, India captain Harmanpreet Kaur quashed claims that former head coach Ramesh Powar was moved to the NCA due to differences with players and added that the side is in the right hands with Hrishikesh Kanitkar now joining in as batting coach. On Tuesday, Kanitkar was made the women's team batting coach with Powar appointed as the spin bowling coach at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Kanitkar, who coached India U19 to the World Cup title early this year in West Indies, had been with the women's team during their white-ball tour of Sri Lanka in June-July and was also the batting coach of men's team on the tour of New Zealand in November. Well, nothing of that kind. I have always enjoyed working with Ramesh sir whenever I have had the opportunity. As a team, we have improved a lot (under him). We have learned a lot from him. It's a BCCI decision that he has moved to the NCA now, where he will work as the spin coach. Whenever we will be at the NCA, sir is always available. Hrishi (Hrishikesh Kanitkar) sir is here with us. We had a very good experience with him when we were in Sri Lanka. Whenever we were at the NCA, he was always available. Hrishi sir brings in a lot of experience for the team and we're only looking forward to how to take this team ahead. I think we are in the right hands. Whatever decision the BCCI is taking, we're fully okay with that, said Harmanpreet on the eve of the first T20I against Australia at D.Y. Patil Stadium. Harmanpreet remarked that Kanitkar brought a sense of calmness to the team, especially in crunch situations, during their tour of Sri Lanka. He's very calm and we needed someone who can give us that calmness on the field because in the past, during crucial situations, you must have seen that the girls needed support and guide with calmness to tell what to do and how to do and there should be clear thoughts. In Sri Lanka, we experienced that side of Hrishi sir. When we heard that he will be the coach for the Australia series and even beyond that, there was positivity in the team. We really liked the way he worked with us in Sri Lanka. Harmanpreet also explained how Kanitkar helped them in taking the side out of tough circumstances, citing the third ODI against Sri Lanka at Pallekele in July, where she and Pooja Vastrakar had made the fifties and shared a 97-run stand for the seventh wicket to carry India to 255/9 and eventually, a 39-run victory. I remember there was a partnership between me and Pooja (Vastrakar, out of Australia series due to injury), that partnership was so crucial and because of it, we could post a decent total. The things which we discussed with him, and executing them within one or two games, those things matter a lot. All the girls had worked alongside him and everyone was happy, impressed by the way he was presenting things to us. He helped us in terms of how to execute plans and which players would take the responsibility in which and what situations. There were times during ODI matches on that tour when we lost early wickets, but we bounced back and scored big totals like 250. He helped us in understanding how to bat in those circumstances. With the Women's T20 World Cup in South Africa less than two months away, the timing of moving Powar to NCA came as a surprise, even though it wasn't the first instance of such happening in the Indian women's side. In 2017, just a few months before the ODI World Cup in England, Purnima Rau was sacked and Tushar Arothe was brought in as the head coach. Even though the team went on to be the runners-up and got limelight, the timing of changing head coaches did bring in some criticism. Now, with the position of head coach vacant, Harmanpreet didn't put much attention to it and believes the team won't have difficulty in adjusting to Kanitkar's clarity and style of coaching due to his previous familiarity with the side. When we were there with Hrishi sir in Sri Lanka, we got to clear a lot of things as a batting unit, because we had some targets. We discussed with him how to achieve our targets and we spoke about setting those small targets, where he also brought out his experiences of achieving those targets. Now, with the position of head coach vacant, Harmanpreet didn't put much attention to it and believes the team won't have difficulty in adjusting to Kanitkar's clarity and style of coaching due to his previous familiarity with the side.

PAK vs ENG: 'Pull the truck...,' Shoaib Akhtar's suggestion to England's stormy bowler!

The England team is on a tour of Pakistan these days. The second Test will be played between the two teams from 9 December. Before this match, former Pakistani fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar suggested increasing the speed of England fast bowler Mark Wood. Shoaib has said that if he wants to reach 100 mph then start pulling trucks. In the 2003 World Cup match against England, Akhtar bowled one of the fastest deliveries in cricket history. He holds the record for 161.3 km/h ball. He loses his follow-through Wood's speed was measured at 96 mph in the recent T20 World Cup in Australia. Akhtar said- Mark Wood is a great-looking guy and a lovely person with beautiful action. That's what I love to see! I have seen some things. He loses his follow-through. Thank god they cut their run-up short. He lands on the left foot and you often see him fall down the pitch because he can't control the follow-through. If he is thinking that he cannot bowl more than 155, then he is absolutely wrong! Have to start pulling trucks Shoaib said- If he wants to bowl at 100 mph, he will have to start pulling trucks. I made pitches of about 26 yards. I made a ball about four times heavier than normal. I trained with a lot of weights and rode my bike with weights. I noticed that I developed muscles that I had never been able to touch before. Anyone who can bowl at 150 kmph has 10 km in reserve with the right preparation and right recovery. Mark Wood has been prone to injuries several times in his international career. The second Test will start on December 9 and the last Test will be played in Karachi on December 17.

England Ponder With Options To Find Best Way To Clinch Test Series Victory In Pakistan

England are pondering over various options in a selection dilemma as Ben Stokes & Co attempt to find their best combination to clinch a Test series victory in Pakistan through the second game in Multan, starting on Friday. Despite doubts over the first Test in Rawalpindi starting on time as a virus bug swept through the visitors' camp, England were fit enough to field a playing eleven as per the original schedule of the tour and thoroughly dominated the match on the flattest of pitches to register a famous 74-run victory over Pakistan. Tearaway fast bowler Mark Wood and first-choice wicketkeeper Ben Foakes missed the epic victory in Rawalpindi due to injury and illness respectively. But the duo appear to be fit again for the Multan Test, which could be under the cloud of winter fog apart from unhealthy air. With all-rounder Liam Livingstone missing the series due to the knee injury he picked up on the second day of the Rawalpindi Test, Will Jacks, despite picking 6/161 on debut, could become the unlucky player to make way if Foakes is fit to take the keeping duties from stand-in keeper Ollie Pope. We'll have to consider all our different options. I think there are a few different options we are going to lay out in front of each other, and try and understand what is the best option to try and win this Test match. Because we have got a few other factors that we have to contend with. That's the great thing about where we're at the moment. We found ourselves in that situation (illness prior to the first Test) and we still managed to pick a team that was strong enough to win a game. As I said, we are going to have a conversation at some point about what we feel is the best route to go, said Stokes ahead of the Multan Test. Wood had returned England colours on the seven-match T20I tour of Pakistan and went on to play a huge role in England's T20 World Cup victory in Australia, though a hip injury ruled him out of the semi-final and final clashes, followed by the Test side's preparatory camp in Abu Dhabi. Stokes feels that Wood's return will give England an extra edge in their bowling attack, mainly to execute a short-ball strategy, which was used well b' the visitors' in Rawalpindi. I mean it is definitely an added bonus. It's a lot better having someone bowling 150kph bouncers rather than me, Robbo (Ollie Robinson) and Jimmy (Anderson) at 80mph trying to do it. I think wherever you go in the world, conditions, whatever it is, having someone at Woody's pace is an absolute bonus. Whether he's bowling short or full, at that pace it's always going to be difficult to face. It's great to have him fit and recovering from his injuries and he's definitely put his name into the hat for selection.

Lanka Premier League, Like The IPL, Is Giving The Domestic Players A Chance, Feels Mickey Arthur

Colombo, Dec 7, The former head coach of the Sri Lankan team, Mickey Arthur credited the Lanka Premier League (LPL) for playing an impressive role in the growth of young cricketers here. Arthur guided the Island nation brilliantly in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021, wherein the entire team and especially the likes of Charith Asalanka, Lahiru Kumara and Wanindu Hasaranga impressed the world with their performances. I think the Lanka Premier League is such a good tournament, particularly for the younger players, because it gives them an opportunity to play under pressure. There's a crowd and there's a good TV audience. You can go and play in the nets a million times, but you can't replicate this atmosphere at the ground. The Lanka Premier League has given an opportunity to young Sri Lankan players to showcase their skills and talent at a global stage, said the former Sri Lanka head coach. LPL, like the IPL, PSL and the Big Bash League, is giving the domestic players a chance to experience the heart that goes into international cricket before they get into international cricket, he added. On IPG's partnership with LPL, Micky said, IPG is incredibly important for these competitions as they can't survive without the role of big institutions like IPG. It has been a tough time after the pandemic, etc. but IPG has been there all the time. Hopefully, it produces some players for Sri Lanka, and it exposes some young players to international cricket and all in all makes Sri Lanka cricket far better in the coming time. Speaking about the domestic players playing with the likes of international players like Wahab Riaz, Shoaib Malik, he said, It helps the young players a lot. Shoaib Malik along with numerous players will help young players to come through with whatever the players will ask for and that makes the competition good as professional players lift the standards and above all it allows young Sri Lankan players to rub shoulders with these guys and become better players. Commenting on the Lanka Premier League taking place after a political turmoil in the island nation, the South African said, The LPL will bring smiles to the people here. This is like my second home. I have spent a lot of time here and have a wonderful affiliation with Sri Lanka cricket. I know people have been through tough times, but I am 100 per cent sure that the LPL will bring back smiles on their faces because there is one thing that unifies everybody in this country, and that is cricket. Micky is now the chief coach for Dambulla Aura. Speaking about the team and the area he will be focusing on, he said, I spoke with some of the young players. We have some fine international players, but I want to make sure, when we leave, with or without the trophy, we have transformed those young players into better players and that's my role as the coach of this franchise. Commenting on the Lanka Premier League taking place after a political turmoil in the island nation, the South African said, The LPL will bring smiles to the people here. This is like my second home.

Who among Dhoni or Nehra can become the next T20 coach of Team India if Rahul Dravid leaves?

After the defeat of the Indian team in the T20 World Cup 2022 held in Australia, now there is a constant demand to change the way Team India plays cricket. It is believed that BCCI is thinking of taking big action on this format. In such a situation, BCCI can appoint different captains and different coaches in the T20 format. There can be some other planning as well. Recently there was news that Rahul Dravid will be given the responsibility of Test and ODI format. If this happens, then in the history of the Indian team, 2 coaches will be officially appointed at the same time. Let us now tell you about the possible coach or mentor of the Indian team in the T20 format. He can be a T20 coach after Rahul Dravid Mahendra Singh Dhoni Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the only captain who has won all three ICC trophies for the Indian team. Most of the current players have played with him or under him. In such a situation, Mahendra Singh Dhoni understands all the players of the current Indian team very well, while Mahendra Singh Dhoni also has good experience in T20 tournaments, it is believed that Mahendra Singh Dhoni can be added to the team for the T20 format. Ashish Nehra Hardik Pandya has been in excellent form ever since he came back after the break. In such a situation, demand is being raised to hand over the captaincy of the T20 team to Hardik Pandya. Please tell that Hardik Pandya won the IPL title to Gujarat Titans in his very first IPL season as captain. In such a situation, his partner Ashish Nehra is considered a strong contender for this post. The pair of Ashish Nehra and Hardik Pandya can do wonders in the T20 format as well. For information, please tell that Ashish Nehra is also the head coach of Gujra Titans. VVS Laxman NCA director VVS Laxman has also played the role of coach of the Indian team in the absence of Rahul Dravid, so BCCI can give him the responsibility of the T20 format. VVS Laxman has also worked with Hardik Pandya on tours of New Zealand and Ireland. At the same time, VVS Laxman has also worked with Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL. Gautam Gambhir Gautam Gambhir contributed significantly to winning the T20 World Cup 2007. First Gautam Gambhir has taken the team forward with Kolkata Knight Riders as captain and later with Lucknow Supergiants as a mentor, in such a situation, Gautam Gambhir can also take the Indian team to heights in T20 format. Mahila Jayawardene If the option of a foreign coach is to be seen then former Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene can be a good option for the Indian team. Mahila Jayawardene has worked with many players in the IPL, so her record as a mentor is also impressive.

Trust Factor In Our Team Is Our Biggest Strength, Says India Captain Harmanpreet Kaur

Mumbai, Dec 7, Ahead of their five-match T20I series against Australia starting from December 9 in Mumbai, India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur feels that the trust factor within the current women's team is their biggest strength as a unit. The series against Australia at home, to be played at DY Patil Stadium (first two matches) and Brabourne Stadium (next three matches), will re-start Harmanpreet & Co's road to preparation for the ICC Women's T20 World Cup, to be held in South Africa from February 10-26. The most positive thing I feel is that they are opening up in front of me because if they don't open up, then even I won't be able to help them. They are trusting me, my plans and my powers and all these things are very important. I feel the support we are receiving from the other team members and the efforts the team is putting in is the reason for getting these positive results because if you have that trust on your team, you cannot lag anywhere on the field. So, it's the trust factor that we have within the team, is the strength we have right now. The reason we are improving as a team and are able to give results every tournament is the trust factor that is helping us. Australia, the current T20 World Cup champions, had come to India last time in 2018, where they won ODI series 3-0 and went on to win the tri-series which had England as the third team. Harmanpreet believes that giving feedback to all players on their performances and them sharing their viewpoints has also helped her in becoming a better leader on-field. For me, it is very important keeping all the players together because according to me, everyone should be able to share their views and be treated with equal importance. I know there are a few team performers who can go out and do well for the team, but you still need your other players who are with the team that need to be treated equally too because sometimes, some players need higher support.

This inaugural event comes with a lot of responsibility for us as coaches and players. As custodians of the game, custodians of our country, we ought to be patriotic and know that we can make the country proud. I hope we stick to our performance benchmarks and the brand of cricket we want to play. We understand fear can be nerve-wrecking and we want to channel it into an opportunity to drive us to our performances, said head coach Dinesha Devnarain. India and South Africa U19 teams will also play in the opening U19 Women's T20 World Cup match at Willowmoore Park, Benoni, on January 14. Both teams are in Group D alongside UAE and Scotland. In the 16-team tournament divided into four groups and set to host 41 matches in Benoni and Potchefstroom, top three teams from each group will progress to the Super Six round, where teams will be pooled into two groups of six. Our aim is to do our best in the competition and take this as far as we possibly can; that's any coaches' dream. I want these young women to play the brand of cricket that we've developed and worked hard on, to go and go and showcase their skills and take as many learnings from the experience, added Dinesha. The top two teams from each group will then progress to the semi-finals, which will be played on January 27 at JB Marks Oval in Potchefstroom. The final will take place at the same venue on January 29. This is the first time that ICC will be hosting an U19 Women's World Cup, so naturally, there's loads of excitement within the women's camp, especially now that we are hosting the prestigious event. The SA U19 Coach, Dinesha Devnarain, has been preparing the squad for the past year, and I have no doubt that they will be up for the challenge of this exciting event, said Vincent Barnes, CSA High-Performance Manager. South Africa Squad: Elandri Janse Van Rensburg, Simone Lourens, Anica Swart, Karabo Meso, Madison Landsman (vice-captain), Oluhle Siyo (captain), Kayla Reyneke, Jenna Evans, Miane Smit, Ayanda Hlubi, Seshnie Naidu, Refilwe Moncho, Mona Lisa Legodi, Nthabiseng Nini, and Jemma Botha. The SA U19 Coach, Dinesha Devnarain, has been preparing the squad for the past year, and I have no doubt that they will be up for the challenge of this exciting event, said Vincent Barnes, CSA High-Performance Manager.

Aussie Great Damien Fleming Provides Solution For Bringing Crowds Back To Cricket Stadiums

Former Australian pace bowler Damien Fleming believes playing less of T20 Internationals (T20Is) and allowing the domestic T20 league competitions to continue could be the fix needed to overcome the dwindling crowds at cricket stadiums. Australia have seen record low crowds of late with the stadiums, including the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), seeing a massive dip in numbers even during the ICC T20 World Cup held recently. Several experts have blamed the poor spectator turnout to the saturated cricket schedule and Fleming feels all three formats of the game need to be given clear space and times. Play less international T20s and let the domestic T20 competitions just go about it. You've got to give (all three formats) clear space and times, Fleming said on SEN 1170 Breakfast on Wednesday. Since the T20 World Cup began on October 16, there have been 46 T20 matches, three ODIs and the first of five Test matches against the West Indies and South Africa, said the report. However, Fleming is not in favour of completely doing away with a format but the cricket boards across the world should discuss on how to juggle limited-overs cricket. Test cricket is a bit like vinyl which is trendy these days. 50-over cricket is a bit like the CD which has its own particular taste. T20s are like streaming services which are there to get the quick fix. We have a sport that can still facilitate three formats. We've got a 50-over World Cup in India next year and once that's completed, just play less of it. Give that next two years clear space, opined Fleming. According to the report, 41,918 fans attended the first Test between West Indies and Australia at Perth across five days and just 42,819 collectively attended the three ODIs against England in mid-November. Fleming said not much should be read into crowd behaviour given the number of fixtures and had a positive outlook for the rest of the summer. They started the Test match (against West Indies) on a Wednesday and that's not friendly for people who are at work or kids who are at school. It's not in school holidays and it's against an opposition that, let's be honest, not a lot of the public knew before that Test match. Fleming said not much should be read into crowd behaviour given the number of fixtures and had a positive outlook for the rest of the summer.

SA20 Will Create 'domestic Heroes', Feels Eoin Morgan

Former England captain Eoin Morgan, who has played multiple leagues over the years, feels that the upcoming SA20 will create 'domestic heroes'. Morg'n's footprint will forever be imprinted in England cricket's history. The Dublin-born left-hander brought 'cricket home' when he became the first England captain to raise the ICC M'n's World Cup trophy on an unforgettable balmy Sunday at Lo'd's in 2019. But his legacy goes far beyond delivering the Holy Grail. He revolutionised England's approach to white-ball cricket and provided the support, motivation and encouragement that has unleashed a whole new generation of young English cricketers who play the game without any fear. And although the 36-year-old retired from international cricket midway through this year after 363 white-ball matches for England, it was his playbook that provided the platform for Jos Buttler's team to annex the T20 World Cup in Australia last month. Morgan and Buttler, along with fellow 2019 World Cup winner Jason Roy, will be reunited at the Paarl Royals next month for the inaugural SA20 season' and it's this vast championship-winning experience that coach JP Duminy can rely on at Boland Park.' I can't wait. It's unbelievably exciting coming back to a country that I love playing in, and have played quite a bit in for the last six/seven years,'' Morgan said in a release. ''To be teaming up with my very good friends, Jos Buttler and Jason Roy, is something I am looking forward to. But not only that, the tournament and the time of year, it allows us all to bring our families and share the experience of not only touring a beautiful country but also playing cricket's most popular format,'' he added. The 36-year-old ranks high on the list of global T20 franchise pioneers, having early on committed to improving his craft by playing in virtually every league in the world, and often in its debut seasons. He has witnessed the exponential growth of franchise cricket and particularly the impact it has had on domestic players outside of the various national teams. He believes SA20 can unearth similar home-grown heroes. ''Some of the most exciting tournaments that I have played in, I have played in their inaugural year, things are very raw, things are very exciting, and one of the biggest attributes that a strong domestic tournament brings is an opportunity for domestic players to pit themselves against the very best and biggest names in the world,'' Morgan said. I envisage this tournament laying on that platform and what it creates actually is something that cannot be replicated 'n countries that don't have high-profile tournaments. It creates domestic heroes. In countries that have strong T20 tournaments, or Hundred tournaments, you have players that don't necessarily get opportunities in international cricket but they become household names over the first couple of years, he added. And despite not being on the same team, and the 'horrible' prospect of possibly having to face his fellow World Cup-winning teammate when the Royals meet MI Cape Town in the SA20 tournament opener at Newlands on January 10, Morgan is excited that fast bowler Jofra Archer is back on the park again after a long-term injury. Bowlers have it tough. They have the hardest job by a long way. And given the number of hours, the majority of fast bowlers spend out of their career with injury, I think Jofra has been dealt a really bad hand. He has been through some unbelievably tough times, the former England skipper said. But tough times don't determine the outcome of somebody's career, and tough people do, and Jofra Archer is one of those tough people that show character and resilience to come out on the other side even stronger. And on a bigger picture, it's going to be unbelievable to watch, and horrible to play against, he added. Bowlers have it tough. They have the hardest job by a long way. And given the number of hours, the majority of fast bowlers spend out of their career with injury, I think Jofra has been dealt a really bad hand. He has been through some unbelievably tough times, the former England skipper said.

Hrishikesh Kanitkar Appointed Batting Coach Of Indian Women's Team, Powar To Join NCA

Mumbai, Dec 6, The BCCI on Tuesday appointed former player Hrishikesh Kanitkar as the new batting coach of the India women's team and he will join the side from the upcoming five-match T20I series against Australia starting December 9, with former head coach Ramesh Powar switching to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) as spin bowling coach. Kanitkar, who played two Tests and 34 ODIs for India between 1997 and 2000 and has over 10,000 first-class runs under his belt, was part of the coaching staff under VVS Laxman on India Men's tour of New Zealand last month, with Rahul Dravid and his team opting to take a break post the T20 World Cup. The 48-year-old brings significant experience to the job, having coached at various levels over the last seven years. He coached Goa in the Ranji Trophy and then had a productive three-year run with Tamil Nadu. He was also the coach of India's U19 team, which won the ICC Under-19 Men's Cricket World Cup this year. It is an honour to be appointed as the new batting coach of the Senior Women's team, Kanitkar said in a BCCI release. I see tremendous prospects in this team and we have a good mix of youth and experience. I believe this team is ready for the challenge ahead. We have a few marquee events coming up and it is going to be exciting for the team and myself as batting coach, he added. On the other hand, Powar moves over to men's cricket as a part of the restructured model of the BCCI. I have had an enriching experience in my stint as head coach of the senior women's team. Over the years I have worked closely with some of the stalwarts of the game and upcoming talents of the country, Powar said. With my new role at the NCA, I will be looking to take forward my experience over the years to help build talent for the future. I look forward to working in tandem with Mr. VVS Laxman for the further development of the game and bench strength, he added. The 44-year-old will work alongside Laxman, who is the current head of cricket at the NCA after Rahul Dravid vacated the post to become India men's team's head coach. With Powar coming on board as a spin bowling coach, we are sure he will bring his expertise and experience to the National Cricket Academy, Laxman said. The 44-year-old will work alongside Laxman, who is the current head of cricket at the NCA after Rahul Dravid vacated the post to become India men's team's head coach.

Buttler, Adil Rashid, Shaheen Among Nominees For ICC Player Of The Month Award For November

Dubai, Dec 6, Two stars of England's T20 World Cup winning campaign -- Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid and star Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi along with women cricketers -- Gaby Lewis, Natthakan Chantham and veteran Sidra Ameen -- have been nominated for the ICC Player of the Month Award for November 2022. The ICC Player of the Month nominees produced outstanding performances across international cricket in November 2022. Nominees for Men's Player of the Month: Jos Buttler (ENG) At the top of England's batting order, Buttler showcased his full repertoire of strokes in a series of glittering displays as his side went on to claim the ICC Men's T20 World Cup. The England captain dominantly started the month with a Player of the Match performance against New Zealand, registering 73 from 47 balls as his side won by 20 runs in Brisbane. He then bettered this feat in the remarkable semifinal performance against India, where his brutal 80 from 49 balls alongside Alex Hales saw them chase down the target of 169 without loss. Alongside his crucial score of 26 in a tense final, Buttler also provided leadership on the field, ending up lifting the Trophy at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Adil Rashid (ENG) Rashid has proven himself time and again as a world-class bowler in the shortest format and November cemented his credentials as one of the standout performers in England's armoury. Despite having taken just four wickets across the four T20Is he played in during the month, his expert economy rate of 5.70 was pivotal to restricting opposition scores in high-pressure matches. He claimed the Player of the Match award with figures of one for 16 in the final group game against Sri Lanka at the Sydney Cricket Ground, before excelling in the Final, where the outstanding consistency he demonstrated in his figures of one for 22 was rewarded with the T20 World Cup trophy. Shaheen Shah Afridi (PAK) Spearheading Pakistan's bowling attack in their surge to the Men's T20 World Cup final, Afridi once again proved a constant threat to opposing batters. Taking ten wickets during the month at a superb average of 7.30, his stand-out figures came in the must-win battle against Bangladesh at Adelaide, where his four for 22 secured his side's passage through to the knockout stages. Although he was withdrawn mid-way through the final due to injury, he was key to keeping England within reach during the showpiece finale. Nominees for Women's Player of the Month: Sidra Ameen (PAK) Pakistan opener Ameen enjoyed a hugely successful ODI series against Ireland last month and will be hoping to celebrate her first ICC Player of the Month Award after scoring 277 runs across the three-match series in Lahore and only being dismissed once. She was in imperious form with the bat, recording her highest score of 176 not out in the first ODI, followed up with an unbeaten 91 from 93 balls as Pakistan claimed the whitewash victory 3-0 over the tourists in Lahore, and she walked away with the Player of the Series prize. Natthakan Chantham (THA) Chantham has been a key player for Thailand as they continue their rise in international cricket, and her first ODI appearances for her country underlined her abilities as a top-class batter. She is named on the shortlist after guiding Thailand to a 4-0 series win over the touring Netherlands in Chiangmai. Scoring 267 runs across the four matches, the Thailand opener registered her first century in this format in the first game (102 from 135 balls), and followed this up with two further half-centuries in the successful series. Gaby Lewis (IRE) Ireland's Gaby Lewis is no stranger to the ICC Player of the Month Awards and sees her name shortlisted for the fourth time. Despite losing the ODI series to Pakistan, Ireland bounced back strongly in the three T20Is which followed. Winning the first match thanks in large part to Lewis' unbeaten 69 from 54 balls, they then secured the historic series victory in the final game with Lewis once again starring as an opening batter. Her stylish 71 from 46 sealed the triumph and a Player of the Series award to cap off the memorable month. Ireland's Gaby Lewis is no stranger to the ICC Player of the Month Awards and sees her name shortlisted for the fourth time. Despite losing the ODI series to Pakistan, Ireland bounced back strongly in the three T20Is which followed.

After Successful Season 6 In Abu Dhabi, T10 Eyes Global Expansion With Olympics As Final Destination

Abu Dhabi, Dec 6, After the successful completion of the sixth season of Abu Dhabi T10, the fastest format in the game of cricket is looking to grow and leave its imprint globally, with continents like Asia and Africa earmarked as the next pit stops in what is set to be a storied journey. The very exciting T10 which is the brainchild of T10 Global Sports' chairman Shaji Ul Mulk is taking serious steps in terms of expansion and have already announced a tournament in Sri Lanka while another in Zimbabwe, which hopes to bring together more than 30 nations from the continent, is also locked in and ready for roll out. This is a very unique time for African nations, and when we think of how we are going to be part of this, to grow the game, we are very excited. For us in Africa, the franchises coming here would open up the doorway for all of us to grow much better. In a few years, with the help of this partnership, we should be able to compete with the big guys. The most important thing is to give the youngsters a chance to play at the highest levels, with their icons, said Kwame Asare, chairman of the African Cricket Association. This is a new brand of cricket that is coming to the continent of Africa and the country of Zimbabwe. All the sportspersons and stakeholders, men and women have embraced this format and we want this movement to grow from here. And on the other side, qualification for the T20 World Cup after a while was a big thing for us too, it has captured the mood of the nation and the fans, especially after the win against Pakistan. The addition of T10 has just brought more excitement among the fans and the cricket family, said Dr Tevengwa Mukuhlani, chairman of Zimbabwe Cricket. The giant that is the T10 hopes to proactively attract various nations around the globe so as to further grow the cricketing family, and inspire youngsters to take up the sport. While bringing more cricketers into the sport is one aspect of the movement, the T10 bandwagon is also keen on attracting more fans to the sport, especially the newer generation. In Africa, the high-octane brand of cricket that is the T10 is not going to be restricted to only the men's game but also in the works are plans for the women's tournament. Over the last few years, franchise cricket and leagues in T20 and T10 have taken the world by storm, with cricketers and fans taking to it like a fish does to water. Speaking about the rapid growth and expansion, Shaji Ul Mulk, Chairman of the TTen Global Sports, said, I think league and bilateral cricket are both very different and hold their own place in the hearts of the fans. Our objective, with the T10, is to draw a new crowd, attract more of the youth and also there are a lot of countries that don't follow cricket as closely. With a 90-minute format, we hope to develop the sport in these countries. The first ever edition of this dynamic tournament was held in 2017 with the International Cricket Council officially giving their nod for the Abu Dhabi T10. The league has seen significant year-on-year growth in viewership and economic value, with the 2021-2022 edition of the tournament having reached 342 million viewers through television and digital streaming compared to roughly 37 million viewers in the 2017 edition. Furthermore, such has been the T10's popularity that the sixth season of the tournament in Abu Dhabi was graced by two new franchises from the USA in the New York Strikers and the Morrisville SAMP Army, who finished second and third, respectively. The T10 is hoping to make its presence felt in at least five continents. While the Middle-East, Asia and Africa are already locked in, we also want to bring under our umbrella the Americas and Europe, Shaji Ul Mulk added. The T10 movement aims not only at bringing on board more countries who aren't traditionally nations that play cricket but also has one eye on the Summer Olympics, the very pinnacle of sporting excellence. For cricket to be part of the Olympic family, it will only be a good thing. The whole thing is time-bound as the ICC can't be there beyond a certain number of days. So, I believe, it is inevitable that, T10 is going to be the answer to this due to its shorter duration, especially because it is a 90-minute overall game, said Cassim Suliman, CEO of the African Cricket Association. The T10 movement aims not only at bringing on board more countries who aren't traditionally nations that play cricket but also has one eye on the Summer Olympics, the very pinnacle of sporting excellence.
