Pakistan Cricket News November 2008
Pakistan v West Indies ODI Series 2008-09
PAK v WI, 3rd ODI, Abu Dhabi: Pakistan sweeps three-match series against West Indies (PAK: 3-0)
Electing to bat first after winning the toss, Pakistan reached 273-6 in its 50 overs thanks mainly to a well-paced innings of 101 by Younis Khan and an unbeaten 79 by Misbah-ul-Haq.
Gayle hit 122 for his 18th one-day international hundred and second of the series following a 113 on Wednesday, but that could only take his team to 242 before it was bowled out in the 47th over.
Shoaib Malik, who was retained as Pakistan's captain for the upcoming visit of India early next year, was happy with the result.
PAK v WI, 3rd ODI, Abu Dhabi: Pakistan 273 for 6 (50.0 overs) beat West Indies 242 (46.3 overs) by 31 runs
PAK v WI, 2nd ODI, Abu Dhabi: Pakistan beat West Indies by 24 runs (PAK: 2-0)
Batting first after winning the toss, Pakistan were all out for 232 in 49 overs, almost 40 runs short of the target they were hoping to set.
Despite a century by Shivnarine Chanderpaul (107 not out), the capacity crowd at the 20,000-seat Zayed Stadium, comprising mostly of Pakistan supporters, were not disappointed as the West Indies were bowled out for 208.
In the first match Wednesday, Pakistan by four wickets. The final match of the series is on Sunday.
PAK v WI, 2nd ODI, Abu Dhabi: Pakistan 232 (49.0 overs) beat West Indies 208 (48.5 overs) by 24 runs
PAK v WI, 1st ODI, Abu Dhabi: Pakistan beat West Indies by 4 wickets (PAK: 1-0)
Chasing a daunting 295, Pakistan needed a tough 17 off the 50th over, but Akmal hit the second and third ball for sixes to give his team an unexpected win with a nine-ball 24 not out to overshadow Chris Gayle's brilliant century.
Gayle notched a 106-ball 113 to power his team to a challenging 294-9 in their 50 overs. Paceman Lionel Baker (3-47) nearly derailed Pakistan before Akmal and Fawad Alam (26 not out) changed the script.
Akmal walked in at the fall of Shoaib Malik's wicket whose enterprising 50-ball 66 nearly ended in vain but Akmal and Alam notched 33 needed off the last three overs to give Pakistan a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
The second match will be played on Friday.
PAK v WI, 1st ODI, Abu Dhabi: Pakistan 295-6 (49.5 overs) beat West Indies 294-9 (50.0 overs) by 4 wickets
Ejaz Ahmed likely to become Pakistan fielding coach
Sources said Ejaz, who was picked on the interim national selection committee last month by the new management of the Pakistan Cricket Board, had himself expressed interest in assuming the position of fielding coach and in all probability will be given a two-year tenure. "He is very keen to do this assignment and will probably be given a two-year contract after the One-Day series against the West Indies in Abu Dhabi later this month," one source said.
The PCB has already appointed former Test captain Intikhab Alam as the coach of the national side while former pacer Aaqib Javed has been named as his deputy for a two-year term. The PCB is also expected to name the support staff of the national team after the Abu Dhabi series when the governing body of the board meets later this month to take some important decisions and ratify those already taken by the new Chairman Ejaz Butt.
"Indications are that the PCB will also attach a batting coach, probably Shoaib Mohammad," the source said. An indication of the impending appointment of Ahmed has come after PCB directed the present fielding coach of the Pakistan, Mohtasham Rasheed to report back to his duties at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.
Ironically, the previous regime of the board had appointed Mohtasham as fielding coach of Pakistan last year, even though he holds the designation of a bowling coach at the NCA.
Pakistan Cricket Board bans Yousuf for joining ICL
''He is now contracted to the ICL and just like the other players who joined the league, our policy is clear he can't play for or in Pakistan,'' PCB Director of Cricket Operations Zakir Khan told media persons on Wednesday. The 34-year-old Yousuf, spread shock waves within the PCB after he abruptly left for India to play in the ongoing ICL Twenty20 tournament, just hours after he was named in a 15-man squad for the ODI series against West Indies in Abhu Dhabi, to be held later this month.
Meanwhile, in New Delhi, Yousuf confirmed that he would play in the ICL for Pakistan's Lahore Badshahs and said he was well aware that now he does not have a future in the national team.
''I want to play for my country but I know I won't be allowed to by the Board,'' Yousuf said, adding, ''My record proves that I can play in every form of the game.''
