Cricket News PSL Twenty20 Tournament To Be Played Entirely In Pakistan, Lahore To Host 14 Games And Final

first_imgNew Delhi: The Pakistan Super League Twenty20 tournament is all set to enter new ground in 2020 after the Cricket Board announced that the entire edition of the tournament will be played in Pakistan. Four cities, Lahore, Karachi, Rawalpindi and Multan will host the 34 games in the tournament. Out of the 34 games, Lahore will host 12 matches including the marquee final. Nine matches will be organized in Karachi, including the opener between Quetta Gladiators and Islamabad United. Rawalpindi, which hosted its first Test last month since 2004, has eight games and Multan has three. The entire first edition of the PSL in 2016 was staged in the United Arab Emirates before the PCB held the 2017 final at Lahore. In 2018, four matches were organized at Lahore and Karachi – with the rest in the UAE – while last year Karachi hosted eight matches.”After bringing test cricket back to Pakistan, hosting of the entire Pakistan Super League is our other major achievement. I never had any doubts it was Pakistan’s league and should be played in front of home crowds,” Ehsan Mani, the Pakistan Cricket Board chairman.A total of 36 foreign players will play this year for six local franchises – Quetta Gladiators, Islamabad United, Multan Sultans, Karachi Kings, Lahore Qalandars and Peshawar Zalmi. Those players include batsman Jason Roy of England, South African pacer Dale Steyn and West Indies batsman Lendl Simmons. Pakistan has been trying to win back the confidence of foreign countries ever since the doors of international cricket were shut on the country following an attack on the Sri Lanka cricket team’s bus at Lahore in 2009. The ambush left eight people dead and several Sri Lanka players and team officials injured.Also Read | Watch: Former Pakistani Cricketer Shahid Afridi Says He Smashed TV After Daughter Imitated AartiOver the years Pakistan has hosted Zimbabwe, West Indies, a World XI and Sri Lanka in limited-overs matches before successfully organising two Tests against Sri Lanka at Rawalpindi and Karachi last month.

Last year, Quetta Gladiators got the better of Peshawar Zalmi to win their maiden title.

Otherwise, they really are not “alternative” in any sense of the word. Either that or we should have a serious discussion with owners / players about this subject.I feel this is a conversation that probably people think is too stupid or unimportant to be having, but I think it’s worth thinking about…Traditionalists and fans maybe 25 /30 + now may believe that you wear white at home and grays on the road. And maybe some variation thrown in there. I’m in that crowd both age- and sentimentality-wise, and that’s what I would prefer. A lot of younger fans, non-traditionalists HATE the idea of white vs. gray every game. I can see that. But there are also owners who would fit into that category. Maybe it’s time to let teams go wild. Make no restrictions (if they do, in fact, exist) about uniform colors).Why do I say this? In MLB’s mind, teams have a white and a gray. Think of how the AS game works. Somewhere along the line, that became a “uniform” practice to have a white and a gray. However, if you ask the Rockies or the White Sox or the Astros, they don’t consider their white or their gray to be representative. When the teams can go buck wild in the exhibition games, we see navy smock vs. black smock vs. red smock constantly. Teams, I suppose, choose what they feel best sells/ represents them for ST games. Maybe it’s time to say that “uniformity” must die, and simply let the White Sox have 1 uniform (the black), and let the Astros kill their road grays as well for the brick uni. It seems like teams would go that way if they had their druthers. I wouldn’t like it, but it’s odd that MLB obviously PREFERS certain uniforms when you’re on THEIR turf for the AS game (they don’t allow you to come wearing whatever you want). I realize that it might be odd to see some people in reds and blacks instead of grays, but I’m sure there were times when teams didn’t sport a white or a gray. It must have happened. The A’s, for instance. Did they go yellow at home and green on the road? Did they have white / gray ? They must have stuck out at the AS game.Do you see any point in what I’m saying (probably not). But it’s like there’s a conversation that needs to happen in baseball because I’d say the game is traditional-minded, and some teams (‘specially those with limited histories) say “History — be damned.” For some reason, I’m saying this conversation just isn’t happening probably for a few reasons : It’s awkward to do, you might be “infringing” on someone’s ability to raise capital and most of all, most people don’t think uniforms / logos / sports aesthetics matter. It’s an “accessory” to the situation. I certainly can see that argument, too, but I think it would be a good talk to have. 18,003 1 Share on other sites Followers 6 NYYNYR Location:Dzekoburgh Yes, there was a time when teams didn’t always have white and grey jerseys. It wasn’t a particularly good time. There was Astroturf, concrete donuts, low attendance, cocaine, just kind of an all-around slump. Classic white and grey look good on everyone.Oh, also, regarding Houston altogether dropping grey, Oakland could get away with not having white or grey because it was so audacious to wear kelly green uniforms at the time that nobody else had even thought of doing it. The A’s don’t even do it now. The Astros can’t exclusively wear red on the road because so many other teams like to wear red at home, and baseball has finally cracked down on that.They have? You see color vs. color all the time. They didn’t raise a finger when we had black vs. dark navy (Twins and Chi Sox). Why would you believe baseball is cracking down on this at all?This entire ST has been an abomination — at least aesthetically. You see tons of navy vs. navy games. Red vs. red, too. It’s a free-for-all. I don’t see anything that stops this practice. And maybe it’s not a big deal. I’m trying to figure out:1. Is there any limit on how many times you can wear your alts ? Doesn’t appear to be the case…2. If there is something about not having two teams with similar uniform colors, why is it not enforced???3. Are you obliged to have a white / grey set in your collection of unis?4. If you are, why do you simply have to manufacture them, not actually wear them ?5. If you can basically wear what you want, why even have rules about anything related to the uniform… except that it must be tucked in to pants, etc. ??? I think we as fans usually know less about situations than those intimately involved; however, i don’t think anyone has a clue about this subject. I think we’re all just making it up as we go along, and there may be some vague rules that exist somewhere but by which no one abides…I do miss astroturf and the solid donuts…ah, memories. I also miss (i was born not far from the stadium, so cut me some slack) Shea in a weird way. And those light-up baseball players that would adorn the outer perimeter. Maybe it’s something about my childhood.You know what does suck though for real? Some stadiums either don’t have Carvel (egads !!!) or at the very least don’t have those helmet cups. Screw the uniforms. I take it all back. TEAMS MUST BE REQUIRED TO SELL CARVEL IF ONLY FOR THE HELMET CUPS !!! They have ’em at Citi / YS, but it’s not a given at all parks. Should be, I say. My g/f and I are going around making a helmet-cup collection as part of our documentation of going to different stadiums… Share this post Members Sign in to follow this   piratesfan16 Share on other sites Members Members Posted March 21, 2011 195 By marlinfan, March 14, 2011 in Sports Logo News Followers 6 Sports Logo News 0 0 Link to post Posted March 14, 2011 Share this post 395 posts Link to post simpsontide Link to post I thought about putting it in the other thread but decided it would not be line with what the thread starter had in mind when he made his first post.I heard that they’re going to release annoyingly-cryptic teaser images for months in advance, and then get contracted just before they can unveil the uniforms.

This deal was signed after their world championship in 2002, and after Moreno bought the team and turned them into a team that was going to perennially have a $100 mil payroll and be in contention.

This topic is now closed to further replies. 4 Even though it’s early, here’s what I hope for in uniform changes:AL West:Mariners – Teal Bill on their home cap. Angels – ‘Anaheim’ on their road jersey.Athletics – Perfect set. Maybe just tweak their new gold alternates by putting the piping down the pants.Rangers – Get rid of the black drop shadow. It makes it too cluttered and IMO it the jersey would look cleaner and brighter without it.AL Central:White Sox – Bring back the sleeveless alternate. They are practically made for the White Sox. Also, put the WHITE sox LOGO back on the sleeve of the road jersey. Scripts don’t look right on the sleeves IMO.Royals – Home jerseys looks like Dodgers. Incorporate more gold into their uniforms. New font for the uniforms.Indians – Blue caps with red block ‘C’ for the cream alternate. Replace the block ‘C’ on the road with the Indian head. It gives a throwback look a more modern flare. Get rid of cursive ‘I’ for good. Twins – Get rid of the sleeveless for good. Tigers – Perfect. NL East:Mets – Get rid of the black alt, the black caps, the black bills, the black drop shadow, and the black socks. Add a blue alternate jersey. Phillies – Put ‘Philadelphia’ on the road jersey.Marlins – Add an aqua alternate. Make the pinstripes at home aqua. Get rid of the black alternate. Put Miami on the road.Nationals – Put the Nationals script on the home jersey. Braves – Perfect set.AL East:Yankees – Add a black alternate. Just kidding, perfect set.Rays – Get rid of the powder blue alternate. Orioles – Change home to black script with orange outline. Get rid of the orioles script on the road jersey’s sleeve.Red Sox – Add navy piping on red alternate. Blue Jays – Add blue alternate and incorporate more blue into their home and away jerseys.NL Central:Pirates – Add a gold alternate jersey for home. Go back to vests for home and away.Cubs – Change font on away jersey.Astros – Make home jersey clean with no pinstripes. Cardinals – No alternates. Perfect set.Brewers – Change the navy blue to royal blue. Change the vegas gold to athletic gold. That will make the jerseys look a little brighter and less drab.Reds – Get rid of the black bill on the red alternate. The Reds jerseys are classic as themselves.NL West:Rockies – Add a purple alternate. Get rid of the silver. It draps the uniforms out. They can be very bright and sharp if they use primary colors.Padres – Change color scheme to brown, orange, yellow, gold, or a combination of two of them. They might look better if they use more distinctive colors. Keep the interlocking ‘SD’ and make the SD white for home caps and orange for road caps. Diamondbacks – IMO, they should go back to the copper, black, purple, and teal color scheme. Red, black, and sedona just isn’t good looking IMO.Dodgers – Perfect set.Giants – Perfect set.

Sleepless nights and chess for hours: how Joshua experienced the heavy…

first_img© Reuters World boxing champion Anthony Joshua did not respond to reports and was imprisoned for hours after the only loss of his career. The Briton took a large group with him to New York for the first game against Andy Ruiz, but instead of celebrating, for a week his time was filled with chess games and rare walks in Central Park.“Then you know who your people are. When I lose, you have time to think. But none of the boys come out. People love you when you win. But you realize they love you for who you are and what you are,” Joshua said in an interview. for Sky Sports for the support he received.Exactly a year ago, Ruiz made a sensation after knocking out Joshua in the seventh round and winning the titles of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), the World Boxing Association (WBA) and the World Boxing Organization (WBO). Then the American of Mexican origin amazed the world and inflicted the first loss of the British to the professionals. Joshua then took revenge and regained the titles after a skillful match in 12 rounds.The manager of the British Eddie Hearn said that in the beginning it was difficult for him to realize what had happened. “Suddenly it was hard for me to get out of bed. It was a difficult time,” Hearn said.According to him, there is a reason why Joshua did not show the maximum of his abilities then.“He will never tell you and he would hate me if I told you. He doesn’t want excuses like we saw with Diontay Wilder.When I looked back, knowing what was wrong, I could look him in the face and tell him, “You knew you weren’t 100% right, did you? But he was fine all week and smiling. At no point did anyone said it didn’t look good, “Hearn added.In his next match, Joshua will face Kubat Pulev. The Bulgarian is a contender for the title of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), as the match was postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic.Joshua believes he has the experience to deal with the difficulties ahead: “Being a boxer has taught me how to deal with success and failure. The champion’s thinking is above all belts.”last_img read more

Haiti Elections to take place Sunday

first_imgInternational Teams to Witness Haiti’s Elections in Hurricane-Devastated Southern DepartmentsMembers of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti (IJDH), National Human Rights Network (Reseau National des Droits Humains or RNDDH), and National Lawyers Guild will be observing the upcoming presidential and legislative elections in Haiti on Sunday, November 20. The delegation is likely to include some of the only international presence to witness events in the southern departments on election day, despite the challenges to voting that southern residents are facing in the wake of Hurricane Matthew. Official international observation missions are not expected to travel to the southern departments.The coalition will observe polling places throughout country, with a focus on the South and Grand’Anse Departments, which were devastated by Hurricane Matthew on October 3-4. Over 280 polling stations and several access roads were destroyed by the hurricane, calling into question whether voters in these regions will be able to exercise their right to vote as protected by Haitian and international law.Haiti’s electoral process began in 2015, but was repeatedly delayed after the first two rounds were marred by fraud, irregularities and violence. An interim government was established in March 2016 to restore confidence in the electoral process and hold new elections. IJDH and CEPR have produced a series of election primers profiling the major candidates, key events, and the role of the international community. Press Releaselast_img read more

PREMIERSHIP TITLE CELEBRATION: Akinfenwa Fined for Wearing a Liverpool Shirt…

That was a really nice moment.“I was never sure it would happen, but I never doubted it. It’s incredible. We were good four years ago, really good three years ago, unbelievable last season, and this season is absolutely exceptional – second to none.“I still want to live for 30 or 40 years, I’m not interested in a statue. You don’t have to compare me with these iconic figures.“The last 13 months were pretty special for us. It is an incredible time in my life, to be honest. I couldn’t be more thankful to be part of it. And we will not stop.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram *Jurgen Klopp insists he doesn’t want a statue in his honour at AnfieldNigeria-born Adebayo Akinfenwa who wore a Liverpool shirt to his Wycombe club training ground on Friday after his beloved Reds were crowned Premier League champions has admitted to accept the fine in good faith.Jurgen Klopp’s side were confirmed as title winners for the first time in 30 years after Manchester City lost 1-2 to Chelsea on Thursday night at Stamford Bridge.last_img read more
