  Shoaib Malik's bowling action comes under scrutiny

Karachi: Pakistan's experienced allrounder and former captain, Shoaib Malik has come under scrutiny for his bowling action in the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy first class tournament.

Although still to be officially reported to the Pakistan Cricket Board by the match officials, a well informed source said that Malik's bowling action had been viewed after the match on video by the match officials.

"They have doubts over the legality of some of the deliveries sent down by Malik on the first day of the four-day game for ZTBL against Karachi Dolphins at the national stadium on Friday," the source told PTI.

Malik, out of favour with the selectors for now, has bagged plenty of wickets since the start of the first class season for the ZTBL team he is captaining in the event.

On Friday also he picked up five wickets in the Karachi innings but some of his deliveries came under scrutiny of the umpires and match referee.

"The umpires and match referee have viewed his bowling later on the clips captured by the video analyst," the source said.

Malik, 32, last played for Pakistan in the World T20 Cup in Bangladesh this year but his last Test appearance was in August, 2010 and his last ODI appearance in the Champions Trophy last year in England.

The former captain has been in terrific form with bat and ball in recent months not only in the foreign T20 leagues but also after he joined ZTBL from PIA.

The PCB has issued strict instructions to the umpires and match referees deputed in the domestic season to keep a close watch on the bowlers with suspect bowling actions.

Malik, who was reported for his action at the international level in the past, had been giving a lot of stress on his bowling in recent matches.

Pakistan's other off-spinning allrounder, Muhammad Hafeez, presently playing in the first Test against Australia in Dubai, has already been reported for his action in the Champions League in India last month.

  Cuttack gets first SL ODI, Ranchi last
Posted by: nairrk - Today 02:12 PM - No Replies

Cuttack will host the first ODI between India and Sri Lanka on November 2 while Ranchi will host the fifth and final game on November 16, according to the schedule released by Sri Lanka Cricket.

Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Kolkata will host the second, third and fourth ODIs on November 6, 9 and 13. The Sri Lanka team will begin the tour in Mumbai on October 30 with a practice game against India A at Brabourne Stadium. They will be back in Colombo on November 18.

SLC had agreed to step in when West Indies pulled out of their India tour after the fourth ODI in Dharamsala. In return, the BCCI agreed to tour Sri Lanka in July-August 2015. Sri Lanka were scheduled to tour India for Tests next year, but the BCCI accepted SLC's proposal of swapping countries for that trip.

Cuttack was scheduled to host the only T20 international against West Indies while Kolkata had been allotted the fifth ODI to celebrate 150 years of Eden Gardens. Hyderabad, Bangalore and Ahmedabad were to host the three Tests against West Indies. While two of those Test venues were accommodated with an ODI each against Sri Lanka, Ranchi was preferred over Bangalore for the remaining slot. The BCCI follows separate rotation systems for ODIs and Tests.

  Three-ton Warner feels lucky to match Bradman
Posted by: nairrk - Today 09:20 AM - No Replies

Australian opener David Warner believes luck played a part in his matching illustrious countryman Don Bradman's three consecutive Test hundreds, he said Friday.

The 27-year-old left-hander smashed 133 for his ninth Test century, his third in as many innings following his 135 and 145 against South Africa in Cape Town in March this year.

That makes him the seventh Australian to score three in three innings, the last two of them the great Bradman (1948) and Adam Gilchrist (2005).

Warner said he was lucky to be equal Bradman's feat.

"It comes with a lot of luck. I've had a couple of chances dropped in South Africa and here, if I was reviewed, I was out as well," said Warner of the leg-before appeal off spinner Mohammad Hafeez on 83.

"That's the game. Sometimes it's in your favour. Sometimes you nick the first few in your next couple of innings. You have to keep riding that roller-coaster of being in form.

"It's how you play. You're going to have some luck."

But despite his hundred, Australia fell for 303 in their first innings, conceding an invaluable 151-run lead to Pakistan's first outing of 454.

By close on the third day, Pakistan had stretched their lead to 189, scoring 38 without loss in the second innings, a position which dismayed Warner.

"The way we batted is disappointing. Conditions are quite tough but we look at the run out (Alex Doolan). You shouldn't be giving run out chances in Test match cricket," said Warner of Doolan's run out for five.

"We pride ourselves on our running and unfortunately Alex gets out. That happens in cricket and then we have an hour break and lose a couple of quick wickets but that's what can happen in this game."

Warner hoped Australia make runs hard to come by for Pakistan on Saturday.

"There's a bit of turn there but it is turn that is outside the areas.

"The bowlers are going to have to pitch it out wide and it will be easy to sweep as a batsman rather than being defensive," said Warner.

"It can go two ways, chasing a lot or get them out cheaply tomorrow. Cricket's a fickle game and sometimes you get a good ball."
