Thumbs down Otago Volts beat Faisalabad Wolves

CLT20, 1st Qualifier: Otago Volts beat Faisalabad Wolves by 8 wickets



Mohali: Skipper Brendon McCullum led from the front smashing an unbeaten 83 as Otago Volts from New Zealand comfortably beat Pakistan's Faisalabad Wolves by eight wickets in qualifying round match of the Champions League Twenty20 on Tuesday. Opting to bat, the Misbah-ul Haq led side could manage only 139 for eight in the wake of some controlled bowling from the Otago bowlers. Pacers Ian Butler (2 for 23), James McMillan (2 for 24) and James Neesham (2 for 26) all bowled well with only Misbah making a significant contribution with 46 off 34 balls.
Brendon McCullum receives the Man of the Match for his aggressive and match-winning knock. That's it from the first game of this year's Champions League T20. The second game is just a snack away. So get back for the clash between Hyderabad and Kandurata Maroons. It has been a pretty strong outing for Otago Volts, one must admit. They restricted Faisalabad Wolves to just 139 on a decent batting track and then chased the target down with 13 balls to spare. They lost one of their openers early but Rutherford slammed a quick-fire 25 and after his dismissal Brendon McCullum took over to score 83 out of 142 to take his side home.

Lightbulb Moin asks Misbah to change his approach to captaincy

Moin asks Misbah to change his approach to captaincy

Karachi: Insisting that stripping him of the captaincy won't do any good, Pakistan cricket team manager Moin Khan instead said the Test and one-day skipper Misbah-ul-Haq should change his approach. Former Test captain Moin met the caretaker chairman of the PCB, Najam Sethi in Lahore and submitted his report of Pakistan's recent tour to Zimbabwe. "I don't think making changes all the time is good for our cricket. What needs to be done is to change Misbah's approach," Moin said. Misbah and head coach Dav Whatmore came under fire after Pakistan lost the second Test to a lowly-ranked Zimbabwe to level the two-match series 1-1. Pakistan had also lost a game in the three-match ODI series earlier on the tour. Moin, however, indicated that there were no intentions of changing Misbah or Whatmore for the forthcoming series against South Africa despite the hue and cry raised after the national team's disastrous performance in Zimbabwe.
Moin said Misbah was ready to made amends. "I've spoken to Misbah and he is positive about bringing an improvement," Moin, who captained Pakistan in 13 Tests and 34 ODIs, said. Pakistan are scheduled to play three Tests, five ODIs and two T20 games against South Africa in October-November. Misbah has so far maintained silence on his future as captain and is scheduled to return home from India as his side Faisalabad Wolves failed to qualify for the main round of the Champions League T20 tournament. Misbah had flown straight to India from Harare after Pakistan had lost the second Test.

Thumbs up Faisalabad Wolves beat Kandurata Maroons

Misbah rescues Faisalabad yet again with aggressive 93


Misbah hit a quickfire 93 from 60 deliveries, to help his team finish off with a consolation victory. They had lost their first two matches in the qualifying round to be knocked out of the running for a place in the main round, while Sri Lankan side Maroons went home after three straight losses.

Sunrisers Hyderabad and Otago Volts have already made it to the main round from the qualifying group.

Misfiring Hafeez axed for South Africa Tests

LAHORE: As expected vice-captain Mohammad Hafeez was on Saturday axed from the 12-man squad to play a Test series against South Africa in the United Arab Emirates.

The series starts in Abu Dhabi on October 14, with the second Test in Dubai from October 23.

The 32-year-old Hafeez has scored just 102 in his last five Tests. He managed 43 in a 3-0 Test defeat in South Africa in February and scored only 59 in the two-Test series against Zimbabwe last month.

Misbah-ul Haq was last week retained as Test and one-day captain.

Three players will be added to the squad after a three-day practice match between Pakistan ‘A’ and South Africa in Sharjah starting from October 8.

Pakistan and South Africa will also play five one-day and two Twenty20 internationals, for which squads will be named later, the Pakistan Cricket Board said in a statement.

Pakistan, who are without a chief selector, left out batsmen Asad Shafiq, Umar Akmal, Ahmed Shahzad and Shan Masood, but they still have a chance of making the larger squad, which so far only has one opener in Khurram Manzoor.

Paceman Mohammad Irfan, at 7ft 1in the tallest cricketer to play at international level, earned a Test recall despite an unimpressive two-match stint in South Africa earlier this year when he took just one wicket.

Pakistan looked set to ploy a spin-dominated attack against South Africa with the inclusion of 34-year-old left-armer Zulfiqar Babar, Saeed Ajmal and Abdul Rehman.

Umar Amin, 24, was also recalled after failing to impress in four Tests in 2010. He will lead Pakistan ‘A’ in the practice match.

Hafeez was expected to miss out, given his poor form in Test cricket his year. He was particularly exposed against the moving ball by Dale Steyn on Pakistan’s tour to South Africa in February. Pakistan have not played top-level opposition in Test cricket since, but Hafeez’s struggles in the long format continued against Zimbabwe in September.

Pacer Wahab Riaz also misses out from the squad that played the Zimbabwe Tests. Pakistan had drawn that series 1-1, with Zimbabwe recording their first win against Pakistan in 15 years in the second Test. Against South Africa in February, Pakistan had lost the Tests 0-3.

The team management is mulling playing three spinners in the line-up, and so Babar could fit in alongside Saeed Ajmal and Abdur Rehman.

Fast bowler Umar Gul, who was targetting a comeback against South Africa after being sidelined by a knee injury since March, is yet to return.

Squad: Misbah-ul Haq (captain), Khurram Manzoor, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Umar Amin, Adnan Akmal, Saeed Ajmal, Zulfiqar Babar, Abdul Rehman, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan, Rahat Ali.

Default De Villiers’ ton gives South Africa big win

De Villiers’ ton gives South Africa big win

Captain AB de Villiers hit a robust century to lead South Africa to a thumping 117-run victory over Pakistan in the fifth and final one-day international and wrap up the series 4-1.

Pakistan’s batting woes continued in the series as it was bowled out for 151 in 35.3 overs after de Villiers 115 off 102 balls had powered the Proteas to a strong total of 268-7.”Having clinched the series already, it is always difficult to get going,” de Villiers said.

“But when you wear this shirt (South Africa) and are playing at this level, then you have to play your best with the same intensity. “Having already won the series, South Africa rested three of its frontline bowlers — Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Imran Tahir.

Replacement bowler Wayne Parnell took 3-36 while fast bowler Vernon Philander (2-23) polished off the top order as only Sohaib Maqsood showed some grit with the top score of 53 — his second successive half century. Philander perfectly filled in the shoes of Steyn when he clean bowled Mohammad Hafeez, had Ahmad Shehzad caught at fine leg and then made it 17-3 by having Umar Amin leg before wicket inside the first 10 overs.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq resisted for a while and added 39 runs before he mistimed a pull off Ryan McLaren. Umar Akmal (30) was twice dropped on 19 and 27 but could not cash in on as JP Duminy had him lbw in his first over before Shahid Afridi (9) skied a return catch to Parnell as Pakistan went on to lose four wickets in space of three runs. Sohail Tanvir and Junaid Khan added 20 runs for the last wicket before McLaren had Tanvir caught behind to end Pakistan woeful batting display with more than 14 overs to spare. “We had no answers ... they outplayed us,” Misbah said. “Its an old story now (batting collapses) ... we really have to think about that. “Earlier, De Villiers won his fourth toss of the series and made a splendid unbeaten century, hitting 10 fours and three sixes.
De Villiers upped the scoring tempo late in the innings when he added 83 runs off just 56 balls for the sixth wicket with McLaren (27) as the Proteas scored 114 in the last 10 overs against some wayward bowling.De Villiers also became the fastest South African batsman to complete 6,000 runs in 153 ODIs and surpassed Gary Kirsten and Graeme Smith, who both took 160 matches to achieve the feat.Pakistan did well through spinners Saeed Ajmal (3-45) and Afridi (1-37) in the middle of the innings despite Faf du Plessis (46) adding 62 off 96 balls with de Villiers.
Pakistan got a lucky breakthrough when Hashim Amla did not take a review after he was adjudged leg before wicket off tall fast bowler Mohammad Irfan as the television replays showed the ball had pitched outside the leg stump. Quinton de Kock (34) hit the giant Irfan for four successive boundaries before Ajmal had him lbw and Duminy (2) was caught well close to the wicket by Shehzad.Ajmal had David Miller caught off his own bowling in the powerplay to put South Africa on 150-5 before Pakistan lost the plot badly and surprisingly Hafeez (1-10) was not recalled after bowling three decent overs early in the innings.De Villiers raised his half century off 70 balls when he pulled Ajmals short delivery to midwicket for a six but needed just further 32 balls to score his remaining 65 runs with nine fours and two more sixes. “Dont know what happened in the last 10-15 overs, but it shows that if you hang in there in international sport, you can get through a bad patch, so really enjoyed it at the end,” de Villiers said.
After the two Twenty20s, both teams will meet in South Africa for two Twenty20s and three one-day internationals later this month

South Africa beat Pakistan in first Twenty20


DUBAI: South Africa beat Pakistan by nine wickets in the first Twenty20 international here on Wednesday, to go 1-0 up in the two-match series.

Paceman Dale Steyn took 3-15 as Pakistan were restricted to 98-9 — their lowest total in this form of cricket against the South Africans — in their 20 overs after they won the toss and decided to bat.

Umar Akmal top-scored with a 41-ball 49 but none of the other batsmen could give him proper support. Lonwabo Tsotsobe and Imran Tahir took two wickets. South Africa reached the target for the loss of one wicket in 14.3 overs with Quinton de Kock unbeaten on 48 and Faf du Plessis 37 not out..

South Africa beat Pakistan to take Twenty20 series 2-0

South Africa sparked another Pakistan batting collapse to win the second Twenty20 international by six runs in Dubai on Friday, taking the two-match series 2-0.
It was another batting failure for Pakistan, who, chasing 151, were cruising along nicely at 101-3 in the 14th over before being restricted to 144-9 in their 20 overs.
Paceman Wayne Parnell took 3-25 while leg-spinner Imran Tahir claimed 2-21 and spearhead Dale Steyn finished with 2-20 to rock Pakistan who lost seven wickets in the space of 43 runs.
Sohaib Maqsood top-scored with 37 while Shahid Afridi (14) tried valiantly but failed in the end.
Pakistan lost Ahmed Shehzad (21) and Mohammad Hafeez (nought) in quick succession but Maqsood carried on in style, hitting two boundaries and a six off 26 balls before Pakistan lost three wickets at 112.
Tahir bowled Shoaib Malik (15)and Abdul Razzaq (nought) off successive deliveries while Quinton de Kock held a smart catch off Parnell to dismiss Maqsood as Pakistan slump from 112-4 to 112-7.
South Africa won the first match by nine wickets on Wednesday.
South Africa skipper Faf du Plessis hailed his team's comeback.
"It's a great achievement by the team. We played really well under pressure and Pakistan were in a position to win but we pulled it back remarkably," said Du Plessis.
"We said we wanted to come here and win 2-0 and we did that. As a bowling unit we have certainly grown a lot over the last couple of months. Credit to them for the time and effort they have put into it. There is always room for improvement.
"Nice to be back in South Africa and looking forward to another series against Pakistan. We will try to beat them again 2-0," said Du Plessis of the coming two T20 and three one-day series in South Africa between November 20-30.
Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez bemoaned his team's inability to see out matches.
"I think this is the sequence of the (one-day) series," said Hafeez of Pakistan's 4-1 loss.
"Not finishing games very well. When we needed to play normal cricket, we didn't handle the pressure. Credit goes to South Africa for bowling in the right areas. Every time we thought we were there, we couldn't finish it."
South Africa rode on Du Plessis's 48-ball 58 not out and a sedate 41-ball 48 by Hashim Amla, who lifted the innings during their 78-run second wicket stand after they won the toss and batted.
De Kock chipped in with a quickfire 19-ball 30, studded with six boundaries to give his team a rapid start.
Off-spinner Saeed Ajmal pulled things back for Pakistan by dismissing De Kock and Amla.
Amla hit two sixes and three boundaries before he holed out on Ajmal.
Du Plessis held one end intact, hitting three sixes and one boundary to lift South Africa to their highest Twenty20 total against Pakistan, beating the 142-9 they made at Nottingham in 2009.

South Africa tied the two-Test series 1-1 on the tour.
