Agen Sabung Ayam

NEW DELHI: Conceding that time is running out for the proposed Indo-Pak bilateral cricket series to take place, BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur today said the Board is still waiting for the government approval before taking any decision.

India are set to leave for their Australia tour on January 5, which leaves little time for the high-profile series to take place.

“Media were hoping that Sushma Swaraj’s visit will decide the fate of the cricket series. But when it comes to relations between countries a lot is at stake and many things are taken into consideration before coming to a definite conclusion”, Thakur said.

“Whenever the Indian government will take a decision on this we will let you know,” Thakur told reporters at the sidelines of the signing of an MoU between the Afghanistan Cricket Board and the Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority.

“It is their (PCB) call what is a comfortable time to host the series. We leave for Australia on the 5th of January and after a long series with South Africa it is every important to give the players 4-5 days rest. So Ideally if you have to fly on 5th you be free by 30th (of December),” he added.

According to an MoU signed between the two nations, the PCB was supposed to host India in December for a bilateral series, but a series of flip flops from the two boards has

resulted in confusion. Thakur, though, insisted that BCCI has been clear on givernment approval from the very start.

“I must set the record straight for everyone’s benefit that in April 2014 BCCI’s ex-boss had signed an agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board while bringing a few changes to the constitution of ICC. According to which if resolutions take place in the ICC constitution then India will play against Pakistan in this period for the next eight years.

“And according to that agreement, the PCB was supposed to host India on a neutral venue in the month of December. PCB chairman and BCCI President met in Dubai and decided that we will play a series in Sri Lanka and both the Cricket Board’s will seek permission from their respective government’s for political clearance.

“BCCI wrote a letter to the Indian government, because Indo-Pak relations are always like this and this is not the first time that the series is on hold like this. If you look at the last 30 years then many a time an Indo-Pak series has happened and stopped. And a lot has depended on the relations between the two countries,” he said.

After a series of requests and meetings for the proposed series to take place, PCB Chariman Shaharyar Khan yesterday admitted that time is running out for the rubber to take place. But Thakur insists that there has been no official communication from the PCB.

“We haven’t heard anything officially from the PCB chairman. Until we get something in writing or anything is communicated to BCCI, I won’t be in a position to make any comment on that,” Thakur said.

“Look PCB will be playing host and in how much time they will be able to make it happen will depend on them. But the BCCI has made it’s position pretty clear that because of the 2014 agreement that came into being before my term as Secretary, we had to write to them and ask for permission from the government. And till the government does not give its nod, BCCI will not take any step.”

“The security of national players is top priority and government’s decision is also top on agenda. And one has to look at many other things when it comes to taking decisions regarding Pakistan,” he added.

Meanwhile IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla also insisted that the ball is in government’s court as far as Indo-Pak cricket is concerned.

“About the Indo-Pak series I can only say that we are still awaiting the govenrment’s response. The Honorary Secratary BCCI had written to the Ministry of External Affairs and so far they haven’t responded. The moment we get a response, I will let you know.

“In any case there is a paucity of time as far as holding the series is concerned, these concerns have been addressed by the PCB as well. So we can’t say anything unless the government responds,” he said.

Agen Sabung Ayam

NEW DELHI: Indian bowlers led by Ravichandran Ashwin confirmed exceptional perseverance to end South Africa’s dogged resistance and sign up a extensive 337 run victory in the closing cricket Check, profitable the four-match series by a historic 3- margin.

Needing a mammoth 481 to acquire, South Africa depended on their extremely-defensive strategy just before becoming bowled out for 143 in 143.one overs, the previous 5 wickets slipping for a mere 7 runs in a dramatic collapse.

The three- collection get also enabled India to climb upto No 2 in the ICC Examination rankings.

Fittingly Ashwin (five/sixty one in forty nine.1 overs) acquired the last wicket with an angular delivery that Morne Morkel still left and was bowled, triggering scenes of celebration in the Indian dressing area and among the gamers on the floor.

Skipper Virat Kohli and Male of the Match Ajinkya Rahane picked the memento stumps as gamers engaged in hearty celebrations and also thanked the spectators who gave them a standing ovation.

The Proteas, courtesy AB de Villiers’ forty three off 297 balls, looked like pulling off an unbelievable draw from the jaws of defeat ahead of the Indian bowling arrived to life in the final session courtesy pacer Umesh Yadav’s fiery spell and Ravichandran Ashwin ending the stodgy De Villiers’ near six- hour battle.

Ashwin produced a magical delivery – a sharp bouncing off-crack that de Villiers played awkwardly and the resultant catch was taken by Jadeja at leg-slip.

The emphatic Check series victory far more than produced up for the losses in the ODIs and Twenty20s performed before.

Credit score must also be given to Umesh Yadav (3/nine in 21 overs) for beginning the slide in the last session by rattling Dane Vilas and Kyle Abbott’s stumps. Dane Piedt was gone when Wriddhiman Saha took a stunner.

The visions of victory have been elevated in the post-lunch session, Faf Du Plessis’ (10, 97 balls) resistance ended when Ravindra Jadeja bowled an armer which the proper-hander intended to engage in for the turn. It strike plumb in-entrance considerably to the delight of Jadeja. India’s most effective bowler in the sequence,

Ravichandran Ashwin got his 30th target when JP Duminy () was caught plumb on the backfoot possessing played a dozen of deliveries.

Having got a few of wickets, the drooping shoulders of the Indian fielders all of a sudden had some daily life in them.

The Proteas, who ongoing with their ‘Blockathon’ added only 21 operates in the 1st session of the last day consuming yet another 35 overs although the post lunch session created forty two operates in 31 overs.

With a session still left, it looked as if South Africa have been inching toward one particular of their most creditable draws in Examination background.

Nevertheless, the Indian bowlers ensured that the hosts wrapped up the collection in type.

Although the pitch manufactured it simpler for the South Africans but no credit can be snatched absent from at present the world’s best batsman, De Villiers, who showed that a course player can change and adapt his sport according to adverse situations.

De Villiers was in that zone where he did have only one particular point in brain. Protect dourly and ruin the opposition’s self confidence.

It was not destructive T20 batting for which he is so revered but slow disintegration of a group that has been on top on 10 out of the 12 times of Test cricket that has occurred in the course of the sequence.

There have been instances when the odd boundary was hit and the players carried out the formality of choosing the ball from the boundary and throwing it back again to the bowler.

In the early morning session, Jadeja ended Hashim Amla’s dogged vigil with a lovely shipping and delivery but de Villiers annoyed the Indian bowlers no stop.

Amla faced 244 balls for his ‘epic’ twenty five just before Jadeja bowled him with 1 that drifted in and then straightened knock the off-stump.

If Amla was not enough, in arrived Du Plessis, who surpassed his skipper’s South African record, established yesterday, of playing 46 dot balls ahead of opening his account.

Du Plessis played fifty two dots ahead of having a one of the 53rd delivery. He in fact also surpassed Grant Flower (fifty one balls vs New Zealand in 2000) to grow to be the third slowest player of all time to open up his account

Make no mistake, Du Plessis has completed this sort of defending previously in Adelaide (2012) when he batted shut to 8 several hours (7 several hours and 46 minutes) to score one hundred ten and denied the Aussies what appeared like an unavoidable win.

And his spouse in criminal offense was none other than de Villiers, who had performed 220 balls for his 33 in that distinct match.

Amla’s strike-fee of 10.44 may have place everybody to rest but his was a ideal example of how to preserve a Take a look at match from a miraculously hopeless place.

Amla’s innings may possibly set potential templates on how to preserve a match as the artwork of drawing a Check match has become almost extinct.

Naturally the drab Kotla wicket which grew to become actually lifeless on the closing morning did help but it is never simple to help save a Check match by batting out a lot more than 160 overs but South Africa nearly did the unthinkable.
