Pakistan Announced Squad For ICC World Cup 2019

Pakistan’s top picks have left Mohammad Amir on top of the preliminary 15-man World Cup squad to be held next month in England.

But the fast thrower on the left arm, who missed the 2011 and 2015 World Cups due to a ban on attending a five-year-old match imposed in 2010. The head of team selection, Inzamam-ul-Haq, said that Amir’s form was worrying.

“Amir did not give the expected results,” said Inzamam, who was part of Pakistan’s 1992 World Cup winning team.

Amir is included in the 17-man squad for the five-match series against England from May 5 to May 19 and can return to his Cricket World Cup spot if he behaves well.

“We have included Amir for the English series with the hope that he will regain his pace and wicket-taking ability in the series,” said Inzamam.

Multi-purpose player Mohammad Hafeez was included in the Cricket World Cup team subject to a full recovery from a fractured thumb injury he suffered in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in February of this year.

“Hasnain is exciting and can be a surprise of Cricket World Cup package,” said Inzamam. Who played 3 ODI matches against Australia last month and got 2 wickets.

Another left-arm trainer, Junaid Khan was preferred to Amir. Opener Abid Ali was also called after scoring a first hundred goals against Australia.

The group is largely composed of young players, with only a handful of veterans – Sarfraz and Haris Sohail, who played in 2015. As well as Shoaib Malik, who played in 2007, and Mohammad Hafeez who took part at the 2007 and 2011 tournaments.

Pakistan Squad for Cricket World Cup 2019:

Sarfraz Ahmed (captain), Abid Ali, Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, Fahad Al-Ashraf, Haris Sohail, Hasan Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Imad Wasim, Jahid Khan, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Hafeez , Shoaib Malik, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Shah Afridi.

Ma`a Nonu Could Be On The Road to a 4TH Rugby World Cup 2019

Ma’a Nonu, recently back in the south of France, returned to New Zealand this year to meet former teammates Leon Macdonald and Tana Umaga, who are now coaches for the country’s most underperforming rugby team.

The first game of the season of Come Nonu, against the Crusaders in Christchurch, attracted fans of the country to know if the bulldozer dreadlock would revive his youth or ridicule. Now you can book your Rugby World Cup Tickets to support your players and favorite team.

Ma`a Nonu Could Be On The Road to a 4TH Rugby World Cup 2019

Before leaving the country in 2015, Nonu was well known as the cannonball of the midfielder All Blacks. If the team was a little ahead or just needed patience before they could launch a more creative attack, Nonu was the author of the opposition defense.

2019 Nonu seems to be a totally different type of player. In this first game against the Crusaders, it’s not his hard shots in attack and defense that caught the eye, it’s his precise pass.

Against the Crusaders, there were times when the ex-All Black looked a little behind giving up the weird tackle and getting caught on his outer shoulder once or twice. However, his skills seemed to have developed more since he left New Zealand almost 4 years ago.

Perhaps even more important than all the other qualities that Nonu possesses is his experience. Two World Cup medals, the Wellington and Hurricane Finals, and more than 100 Test and Super Rugby selections paint a portrait of a man who has had all the ups and downs rugby has to offer.

With the embarrassment of the wealth of Steve Hansen and his teammates in the midfield All Blacks, it is perhaps a little too optimistic to hope for a national reminder for Ma’a Nonu at the moment. Given the diversity of skills he has and his undeniable experience, perhaps now is the time to create a fairy tale.

Saifudin not emphasizing over World Cup selection as he nurses elbow injury

Mohammad Saifuddin doesn’t want to get ahead of himself before Bangladesh’s ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 squad is announced, but should he make the cut, he admits that it will be a dream come true.

Saifuddin, the 22-year-old, has played just 10 one-day internationals so far but is seen as one of the bright prospects for Bangladesh cricket. As a fast-bowling all-rounder, he can add balance to a side.

“To be truthful, I am not thinking of such things,” Saifuddin told reporters in Mirpur, about making the final 15 for the World Cup. “At the moment, I am only focused on the DPL [Dhaka Premier League, Bangladesh’s domestic List A tournament] matches as I will only think about the World Cup when I get the final ticket for the event.

“Like every cricketer, I have a dream of playing in the World Cup. If I get a chance to play in the World Cup, it will be a dream comes true. It is a big platform for me to prove myself in England conditions, especially for those of us who are junior players in the team. If we do well, more good opportunities will then come.”

The youngster, who has one half-century and seven wickets in his ODI career so far, insisted that a call-up wouldn’t come with expectations.

“There is no cause to feel burden,” he said. “Mashrafe [Bin Mortaza, the ODI skipper] bhaialways says that the more confident you are, the better it is for you. We may not be capable to bowl 150 kph like Kagiso Rabada, but if we are able to bowl in the right areas at 130 kph, then certainly we will do well.”

The big concern for Saifuddin now, other than making the squad, is a troublesome elbow. According to media reports, he was supposed to take an injection after the tour of New Zealand to aid his recovery, but since it would’ve kept him out of the game for a while, he and his team chose instead to manage the issue and play in the DPL, where his team Abahani Limited is the defending champions.

Saifuddin’s team suggested that his injury was not as bad as initially thought. “Earlier, we used to tape that area, but now he does not need that,” Enamul Haque, the physio, told Cricbuzz. “The only thing is that he is having a problem with his throwing and, as a result, we have decided to keep him inside the 30-yard circle.”

We are going to give a chance to [Lutho] Sipamla. We had seen him while playing in series against Pakistan; he looks a really good touch.

Rassie van der Dussen looked comfortable in South Africa Squad middle order, where he scored up a fifty and finished off effective chases. In all, South Africa trained eight new players across the two limited-overs formats this season.

We’ve seen Rassie now for a while. We would have liked some more performances from other players. The likes of Reeza, I’m, sure would have liked to have made some more runs.

“One of the things that we’ve always looked at when we’re putting together a bowling unit is guys who can get wickets in the middle overs. Him bowling first change with his pace in those middle overs, he is surely a wicket-taker.”

The coach of South African coded that would be the mindset with which they approach Hashim Amla’s selection when he becomes available next. Hashim Amla hasn’t played international cricket in nearly a month now and has selected out of the T20Is to be with his ailing father.

“First and foremost, you want to pick on form,” Gibson said. “

De Villiers distinct India, the hosts England, the shielding champions Australia and Pakistan as the favourites’ to win the tournament, but refrain from naming his former team as one. Those who do not want to miss the entertainment have already bought their Cricket World Cup Tickets.

South Africa made the semi-final in 2015 but lost to New Zealand in a competition that went to the last over. They also made the semi-final in 2007 and 1999 but never made it to a final.

“The World Cup is a hard tournament. I have played in three of them and it’s in no way easy. You always feel like you’ve got a good team, but once the competition starts you very quickly realize that there are a lot of teams that are there to win it and have the skill to do so,” de Villiers.

“I do believe South Africa have a chance, as we did at any other World Cup because we are a world-class team with an abundance of match-winners. The Proteas are surely in the in a row, but I won’t say they are the, to be honest with you.

“India and England are looking strong, Australia has won five World Cups in the past and Pakistan have won the Champions Trophy in the UK two years ago. Those four teams are possibly the favourites.”

With India one of the tough contestant to win the title, keeping their captain Virat Kohli in test could be an annoyance for most teams and de Villiers believes that Kohli’s performances of recent times, which have motivated him to No.1 in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Rankings for batsmen, aren’t going to stop any time soon.
