Remember the summer of 2013? India travelled to England for the Champions Trophy under an IPL spot-fixing cloud. The team wasn't expected to compete but Shikhar Dhawan had other ideas. He smacked a fluent 114 against South Africa and then followed it up with 102* against West Indies. That was followed by 48 against Pakistan and 68 versus Sri Lanka. Dhawan ended the tournament with 363 runs from five matches at an average of 90.75. India won the title and Dhawan was named Man of the Tournament. It looked like India had found a swashbuckling, free-hitting opener who could set-up and win games in foreign conditions. That now seems like a lifetime ago. Statistically, Dhawan's figures still look good. Over his last ten ODI innings, he has one hundred and four fifties and averages 57.55 - higher than his career-average of 43.59. But read beneath the top-layer of these figures and you will find a story dictated by conditions. In six innings at home, Dhawan has scored 387 runs at 64.50, with a hundred and three f ...

Abdul Razzaq, spent most of his career playing it safe, digging in at No. 7, and breaking partnerships with his late inswingers. But every now and then he exploded: he became the youngest man to take a Test hat-trick against Sri Lanka in Galle in 1999-2000, and he creamed an amazing 40-ball 75 in the first one-dayer against England in Karachi in 2000-01. After stints in the ICL, he returned to the official fold in 2009, and immediately made an impact by helping Pakistan to the World Twenty20 crown. in 2010, his nerveless unbeaten century gave Pakistan a thrilling one-wicket win off the penultimate ball against South Africa in Abu Dhabi . Happy birthday Abdul Razzaq
Ebola: FG flays 22 countries for stigmatising Nigerians: The Federal Government has flayed the stigmatisation of Nigerians by South Africa and 21 other countries over the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus disease that was eradicated recently. The Federal Government said the eradication of the virus prompted the World Health Organisation to give Nigeria a clean bill of health over the disease. It named the countries that stigmatised Nigerians as Bahrain, Côte d'Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Cuba, Gabon, China, Egypt and Hong Kong. Others are Kuwait, Qatar, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Zambia, Mauritania, São Tomé & Principle, United Arab Emirates, Ukraine, Namibia, Seychelles and South Sudan. The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Amb. Aminu Wali, who protested the incident at a meeting with members of the Diplomatic Corps on Friday in Abuja, cautioned Heads of Mission for making what he called inflammatory and reckless statements against the Federal Government on matters bordering on domestic policies.

Dr. Subramanian Swamy International Day of Yoga . Soon. - "Yoga is an invaluable gift of our ancient tradition. Yoga embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfillment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and the nature," - PM Narendra Modi. As many as 50 countries - US, Canada and China most recently — have signed up for co-sponsorship of a draft resolution which India's UN mission is preparing for declaring June 21 as international Yoga day. The resolution will be submitted soon to the UN secretariat with the government looking to aggressively push for its adoption before the end of this year. The list of co-sponsors includes China, Japan, Indonesia and South Korea and also South Africa and Nigeria. Neighbours such as Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal and Sri Lanka were amongst the earliest to sign on. Latin American giants Brazil and Argentina too have c ...
// Groundbreaking exhibition of Father Browne’s Greatest Photographs comes to Farmleigh Gallery on 23 October // Frank Browne took his first photographs during a European tour in 1897, just before joining the Jesuits. These pictures convey something of the remarkable talent of a man who was to emerge as the most significant Irish photographer in the first half of the twentieth century. In 1912 his Titanic photographs brought international fame and by 1916 he was a WW1 chaplain to the Irish Guards. In 1921 took his final vows and still suffering from war wounds he went to Australia to recuperate and made a superb series of photographs of life in that country. On his return to Ireland he continued to record aspects of Irish ways of life both personal and corporate which, when added to his pictures in South Africa, Sri Lanka, Egypt, Spain and England constitute a fascinating interpretation of a rapidly evolving world. He was active in the photo-exhibition world and wrote articles for “The Kodak Magazine ...

By 1973, an economic and military alliance between Israel and South Africa was in the ascendancy. The military leadership of both countries was convinced that both nations faced a fundamentally similar predicament, fighting for their survival against the common terrorist enemy of the PLO and the ANC.[11] In 1975, the Israel–South Africa Agreement was signed, and increasing economic co-operation between Israel and South Africa was reported, including the construction of a major new railway in Israel, and the building of a desalination plant in South Africa.[19] In April 1976 South African Prime Minister John Vorster was invited to make a state visit, meeting Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.[16][20] Later in 1976, the 5th Conference of Non-Aligned Nations in Colombo, Sri Lanka, adopted a resolution calling for an oil embargo against France and Israel because of their arms sales to South Africa.[19] In 1977, South African Foreign Minister Pik Botha visited Israel to discuss South African issues with I ...
Sri Lanka v South Africa, 2nd Test, SSC, 4th day A captain's sacrifice for the SL family Andrew Fidel Fernando at the SSC July 27, 2014 "We are like a family" Sri Lanka's captain Angelo Mathews likes to say this when asked about the mood in his camp. Sometimes, you can almost hear the room cringe in unison. The camaraderie in the dressing room is obvious, but you wonder what makes Mathews use the word "family". Do they accidentally use each other's toothbrushes on tour? Does Rangana Herath borrow Mathews' car without permission and return it with the petrol gauge on empty? Do Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene stumble back to the hotel late at night, throw up on the floor, and blame it on Dilruwan Perera? Sri Lankan cricket is almost a throwback to the amateur era, with its bare bones backroom staff, resplendently outdated domestic system, and the genuine warmth and approachability of its top players. Nowhere was this more apparent than on the recent tour of England. But even so, it is still a hard-e ...

Sri Lanka news Chris Adams to work with Sri Lanka : Former Surrey coach Chris Adams has been appointed as a consultant for Sri Lanka for their upcoming tour of England. SLC had conducted a search for a coach with English experience since losing Paul Farbrace's services last week, and have settled on Adams, who played 331 first-class matches, scoring 48 hundreds, in addition to his five Tests and five ODIs. The appointment was made on the recommendation of a three-man panel comprising chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya, head of coaching Jerome Jayaratne and chairman of the cricket committee Ranjit Fernando - the same trio that had also recommended Marvan Atapattu be appointed interim coach. Both the consultant and interim coach appointments were rubber-stamped by the SLC executive committee on Monday, an official release said. Ruwan Kalpage's interim role as assistant coach was also confirmed until the end of South Africa's July tour of Sri Lanka. Adams had become Surrey coach in 2008, but a poor start to th ...
South African lesson to Sri Lanka: Truth Commission or Poverty Alleviation South Africa, while listening to the 'counsel' of the West, failed to undertake a broad and massive economic restructuring of the nation that would have clearly benefited the majority Black population which was under the bottom of the poverty scale during the long White apartheid rule. In these columns, Asian Tribune carried, under the caption "Apartheid Did Not Die in South Africa: Twenty Years by Another Name" and carried an article by a renowned international journalist and documentary maker John Pilger who presented the plight of the Black population twenty years after the end of the White apartheid rule. The West was satisfied that South Africa appointed a Truth and Reconciliation Commission, but the task of bringing the plight of the Black into the open fell into the lap of investigative journalists like John Pilger.
This is my new "look" which I have just posted. As we were in the middle of the Indian Ocean during the initial search for the Airliner internet uploads were impossible. My head was shaved in Manila then we traveled on to Hong Kong, Singapore, Sri Lanka, many islands, then Durban and Cape Town, South Africa. We were gone six weeks. It was a fantastic trip.
LOPSY'S OPERATION A SUCCESS South Africa have confirmed that fast bowler Lonwabo Tsotsobe's ankle operation was a success. The recovery period will be between two to three months, making it unlikely that Tsotsobe will be available for the Proteas' tour to Sri Lanka in July.
Allan Donald is extremely confident South Africa have a world-class test bowling unit who will be able to defend their proud away-record in tests with superb performances when they tour Sri Lanka in July.
Lonwabo Tsotsobe, the South Africa left-arm seamer, has been ruled out of the tour to Sri Lanka in July to facilitate his recovery from ankle surgery scheduled on April 16. He will be sidelined for up to three months. (Rmra)

Herath fifer takes Sri Lanka into semis March 31, 2014 10:08 pm A remarkable spell of bowling by left arm spinner Rangana Herath (3.3-2-3-5) saw Sri Lanka pull off a remarkable 59-run victory against New Zealand to book their berth in the semifinals of the ICC World Twenty20 tournament. Playing his first match of the tournament proper, the spinner remarkably claimed five wickets for three runs as New Zealand managed only 60 in 15.3 overs. With the victory, Sri Lanka joined South Africa in the last four from Group One. New Zealand began their chase one batsman short after all-rounder Corey Anderson dislocated a finger trying to take a catch. Herath took four wickets in his first three overs to leave the Kiwis reeling at 29 for five in the eighth over. Kane Williams (42), the only Kiwi batsman to manage double digits, tried his best to offer some resistance but could not stop New Zealand from folding for their lowest total in 20-over cricket.

Kieswetter played the last of his 25 T20 internationals in September 2012, but turned out for Brisbane Heats in Australia's domestic Big Bash T20 competition earlier this year. England have already lost Joe Root and Ben Stokes due to injury, while skipper Stuart Broad is nursing a troublesome knee. England are drawn with Sri Lanka, New Zealand, South Africa and the Netherlands in Group One of the Super-10 round, with the top two advancing to the semifinals. © Sapa - AFP
The World Twenty20 steps up a gear Friday as cricket's top eight sides enter the fray, with Pakistan seeking a historic win against India in the second round's standout clash. Minnows of international cricket have been slogging it out in the expanded 16-nation tournament so far with two qualifying spots and a chance to join the big boys up for grabs from round one. In the Super-10 stage, Asian giants Pakistan and India will be joined in Group Two by the West Indies, Australia and one of the successful qualifiers. The other qualifier will join South Africa, Sri Lanka, England and New Zealand in Group One with two sides from each group advancing to the semi-finals. The identity of the two qualifiers from round one will be known just hours before Pakistan bid to defeat arch rivals India for the first time at the World Twenty20. "We beat India in the Asia Cup this month and this team looks good to make history," a confident Pakistani coach Moin Khan said ahead of the round-two opener in Dhaka. "But they must ...
In just 4 years of captaincy, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has emerged as one of India's most successful captain this cricket crazy country has seen. The captain cool has led the team to many first under his captaincy. Dhoni led Team India to No. 1 in the ICC Test Rankings for the first time in December 2009 and also closed the gap with Australia in one-dayers after winning the coveted 2011 Cricket World Cup. Dhoni started his captaincy career with the shortest format of the game and immediately led an inexperienced India Twenty20 squad to the inaugural ICC World Twenty20 victory in South Africa in September 2007. Soon after returning victorious in the World Twenty20, he was made the India's one-day international captain for the seven- match ODI series against Australia in September 2007. After serving the team as vice-captain for a while, Dhoni was made full-time Test captain of India during the fourth Test against Australia at Nagpur in November 2008 replacing Anil Kumble, who announced his retirement after the ...
Asia is rising gradually in cricket. First there was ONLY India and Sri Lanka , then came Pakistan, and then Bangladesh. Now there is UAE, Afghanistan, Nepal and Hong Kong. For the last 50 years there was only the names of UK, Australia, West Indies, India, New Zealand ar South Africa. Ora etake kukkhigoto kore rekhechhilo. jeto na.

With the announcement of the IPL dates and venues, the rumours - doing rounds for a month now - about the hosting of the seventh edition of the cash-rich event have come to a halt. Many stories were floating in the media, some rumour mongers even suggested that Pakistan might be asked to host the annual event, while some favoured Sri Lanka and Bangladesh to host the IPL extravaganza. Now it is clear that the event's first leg will be held in the UAE ( United Arab Emirates) at three different stadiums in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. The UAE will host the first 16 matches from April 16 to April 30, following which the tournament will come back to India or may be shifted to Bangladesh from May 1 to May 12, if India's home ministry does not allow the event to take place here due to security reasons. The big question of the day is why South Africa missed the bus this time around, despite successfully hosting the event in 2009, the second year after the inception of the IPL T20? The world's richest cricket boa ...

Feb 28 2014 Human Rights VIOLATIONS OF TAMILS FAIL TO ATTRACT THE ATTENTION OF OUR GOVERNMENT The violation of the Human Rights of the Tamil people in Sri Lanka appears to have failed to attract the attention of the powers that be in South Africa. This despite the findings of various international organisations, including the UN Human Rights Commissioner, Navi Pillay, that gross Human Rights violations had taken place during the final stages of the civil war in Sri Lanka. Between 70 thousand 100 thousand Tamils were slaughtered by Sri Lankan soldiers. There are also continuing reports of the oppression of the Tamil people by Sri Lankan soldiers. Tamil homelands in the North and East of the country are being colonised and occupied by Sri Lankan soldiers, attacks and rapes of Tamil women are continuing and Tamils are being made to feel foreigners in the land of their birth. Tamils in fact are the original inhabitants of the island. The Singalese are descendants of people who had migrated from the north of I ...

Irfan to miss Asia Cup, World Twenty20 due to injury Rawalpindi (pakistan), February 14 Lanky Pakistan paceman Mohammad Irfan was left out of Pakistan's 15-man squads for this month's Asia Cup and next month's World Twenty20 after a recurrence of a hip injury, selectors said Friday. Irfan -- the tallest ever man to play international cricket at 7 feet one inch -- fractured his hip in Pakistan's Twenty20 series against South Africa in United Arab Emirates in November last year. However, his recovery proved short lived when the injury recurred in a domestic tournament this week, prompting chief selector Azhar Khan to say Irfan had to be left out of the squads. "Irfan was left out as he fell injured again and he needs some time for recovery," Khan told reporters while announcing the squads. The Asia Cup will be held in Dhaka, from February 25 to March 8. Besides Pakistan - the defending champions - India, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan and hosts Bangladesh will also take part in the event. The fifth edition of the W ...

Muhammad Talha and Hafeez back in to the test arena for Pakistan Pakistan have picked fast bowler Mohammad Talha for the Tests against Sri Lanka more than four years after he played his only match, in March 2009. They have also recalled fast bowler Umar Gul, who is fit again, and allrounder Mohammad Hafeez, who who scored three hundreds in the first four ODIs against Sri Lanka in the UAE. The players missing from the squad that played the Tests against South Africa in the UAE were: the injured fast bowler Mohammad Irfan, batsman Umar Amin and spinner Zulfiqar Babar. Test squad: Misbah-ul-Haq, Mohammad Hafeez, Ahmed Shehzad, Khurram Manzoor, Shan Masood, Azhar Ali, Asad Shafiq, Younis Khan, Adnan Akmal, Junaid Khan, Saeed Ajmal, Abdur Rehman, Umar Gul, Rahat ali, Mohammad Talha.
New Delhi, Feb 7: The defending champions of the Under-19 World Cup, India, have won all four series they have played since the 2012 tournament in Australia, making them one of the most successful junior teams in the world. The coach and captain, Bharat Arun and Vijay Zol respectively, have said that they will draw confidence from those victories ahead of the 2014 World Cup set to begin next week in the UAE. The present squad came together in July last year for the Top End Series in Darwin, beating the hosts, Australia, comprehensively in the final. That was followed by a short bilateral one-day series in Sri Lanka which India won 2-0. India then hosted a quadrangular tournament in Vizag, with South Africa, Australia and Zimbabwe the other participating teams. India trounced South Africa in the final before heading to the UAE for the U-19 Asia Cup. They maintained their reputation ...

New Zealand, West Indies, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe have signed in favour of Big 3. Big 3 just one vote away from majority. They are trying their best to convince either Pakistan, Sri Lanka or South Africa to vote them. PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf said: BCCI k lalach mein nahi ayen ***
[Reports indicated that Zaka Ashraf got into heated arguments with the chairmen of the Indian and Aus] The Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Zaka Ashraf has called an emergency meeting of the governing board on February 3 to discuss the watered-down draft proposals put forward by India, Australia and England at the ICC meeting this week in Dubai. Ashraf, who returns from Dubai after attending the ICC meetings, is himself facing a battle for survival after the Islamabad High Court started hearing an appeal filed by the government against his (Ashraf's) reinstatement as Chairman by a IHC divisional bench earlier this month. Indications are that the government after today's hearing is thinking about issuing a notification, appointing an ad-hoc committee to run cricket affairs with a new Chairman. Pakistan with South Africa and Sri Lanka sought more time at the recent ICC executive board meeting to study and discuss the revised draft proposal of the Australian, Indian and English boards. A well-informed ...
FROM MY BOOKSHELF: THE WEEKLY BOOK REVIEW OVERSEAS INDIANS: THE GLOBAL FAMILY by SHUBHA SINGH, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad Institute of Asian Studies, 567 Diamond Harbour Road, Behala, Kolkata 700 054, India The rise of a prosperous, confident overseas Indian community since the late 1980s has changed the image of the ‘Pravasi’ (overseas) Indian community in India. Overseas Indians have become visible internationally as many of them have reached heights of success and found a place in the lists of international leaders in their areas of expertise. The Indian diaspora is formed of numerous layers and segments that correspond to the time of migration, the place of origin in India and the country of settlement. Overseas Indians are descendants of migrants who went to Malaysia, Sri Lanka and other South East Asian countries and as indentured workers travelled to Trinidad and Tobago, Mauritius, Suriname, East Africa, South Africa and Fiji. There are first generation migrants to Britain, Canada, America and oth ...
BRUNEII TIMES: History of Overseas Malays Rozan Yunos BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN Monday, May 30, 2011 MANY people have heard of the Chinese diaspora. But have anyone heard of the Malay diaspora?.The biggest group is known as the Cape Malays, Malays living in South Africa. The Cape Malays are said to number around 160,000 living in Cape Town and another 10,000 living in Johannesburg. Another group is the Malays of Sri Lanka or in Sinhalese known as Ja Minissu who numbered around 50,000 people. A third group are Malays in the Cocos Keeling Islands known as the Cocos Malays. Ironically, some of the Cocos Malays are now staying in Sabah. Their current population of around 4,000 is about eight times larger than the population in Cocos Islands. Another group is the more than 20,000 of the Suriname's population who are of Javanese descent.
Before we start screaming 'fashi chai' , remember that we sort of owe a lot to BCCI in the way of undue favours. Our test status for one , and even the T20 World Cup and Asia Cup remaining here since back in early January nobody in their right minds could predict that we would suddenly become peaceful again. Not that this new proposal is beneficial but when majority of the nations are probably going to comply, we only stand to lose more if we reject it. I can only hope nations like South Africa , Sri Lanka and West Indies will put up vetoes and bail our ***
boost for Titans January 21, 2014 at 9:23pm THE Unlimited Titans have been boosted by the arrival of Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal as they attempt to claw back the ground between themselves and the RAM SLAM T20 table-topping Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras at Sahara Park Newlands on Wednesday. Ajmal landed in South Africa on Tuesday morning, fresh from a memorable Test win over Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates, and will go straight into the Titans side for Wednesday. “He’s one of the best in the world at what he does, so it will be great to see him with a sky-blue top on,” said coach Rob Walter. The Titans will also have Marchant de Lange available after a long injury lay-off, but Walter suggested that the fast bowler may not gain selection at this stage. “Marchant is fit to play. The trick really is trying to find a place for him with the side that we do have. But his time will come at some point in the season so it’s just about being ready for that.” The Cobras go into the match with a seven-p ...

The first ODI was played on 5 January 1971 between Australia and England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. When the first three days of the third Test were washed out officials decided to abandon the match and, instead, play a one-off one day game consisting of 40 eight-ball overs per side. Australia won the game by 5 wickets. ODIs were played in white kits with a red ball. The ten Test-playing nations (which are also the ten full members of the ICC) have permanent ODI status. The nations are listed below with the date of each nation's ODI debut shown in brackets: 1)Australia (5 January 1971) 2)England (5 January 1971) 3)New Zealand (11 February 1973) 4)Pakistan (11 February 1973) 5)West Indies (5 September 1973) 6)India (13 July 1974) 7)Sri Lanka (13 February 1982) 8)South Africa (10 November 1991) 9)Zimbabwe (25 October 1992) 10)Bangladesh (10 October 1997)
THIS DAY 30TH DEC THAT YEAR 2011 Sri Lanka's First Test win in South Africa ended a spell of a year and a half without a victory in the format - since Muttiah Muralitharan retired. After losing by an innings in Centurion, Sri Lanka arrived in Durban, where they put up 338 in the first innings, in the face of an inspired performance by debutant fast bowler Marchant de Lange, who took seven wickets. South Africa collapsed in their reply, to the unlikely left-arm pace and spin pair of Chanaka Welegedara and Rangana Herath, Kumar Sangakkara scored his first hundred in the country, and South Africa then fell in a heap again (Jacques Kallis got his first pair in Tests), losing by 208 runs.
In test matches, Jacques Kallis - the South African allrounder, has won the most man of the match awards. Muthiah Muralitharan, the bowler who holds record of most wickets, comes second while Pakistani legend Wasim Akram and Aussie spin wizard Shane Warne follow as joint third. Here's a list of cricketers with more than a dozen man of the match awards in tests :- 23 = Jacques Kallis of South Africa, 145 tests. 19 = Muthiah Muralitharan of Sri Lanka, 133 tests. 17 = Shane Warne of Australia, 145 tests. 17 = Wasim Akram of Pakistan, 104 tests. 16 = Ricky Ponting of Australia, 152 tests. 15 = Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka, 113 tests. 14 = Sachin Tendulkar of India, 177 tests. 14 = Curtley Ambrose of West Indies, 98 tests. 14 = Steve Waugh of Australia, 168 tests. 12 = Ian Botham of England, 102 tests. 12 = Brian Lara of West Indies, 131 tests.

If the T20s are an indication where Pakistan and Sri Lanka stand in limited-overs cricket, fans may be in for one of the more absorbing, unpredictable bilateral ties in the year. There was everything from top- order audacity, to spin-induced collapses, outstanding catching and a lower-order resurgence, all delivered with the spark that has defined matches between these sides in recent years. Already well-matched in Asian conditions, both teams also approach the ODIs in similar states of confidence. Pakistan had been the more match-ready side before the tour began, but Sri Lanka had their top three humming last Friday , and frontline bowlers Lasith Malinga and Sachithra Senanayake have also established form, with four wickets apiece. For Pakistan, Shahid Afridi has married sense to his savagery with the bat, Saeed Ajmal remained menacing, even as his team-mates fell to pieces in the second match. The top order need look only as far back as the South Africa series to discover good vibes of their own. How Sr ...
Match Preview I: Pakistan vs Srilanka 2nd Twenty20: Pakistan v Sri Lanka, 2nd T20, Dubai Match facts Friday, December 13, 2013 Start time 2000 local (1600 GMT) Pakistan's shot at No. 1 ranking Mohammad Hafeez had been confident his side would head into the tour with more momentum, and Pakistan's victory in the first Twenty20 proved him correct. Pakistan's senior bowlers were sharp, quick-witted and collected, and their batsmen unruffled, as they chased 146 with five balls to spare. Sri Lanka may be the top-ranked Twenty20 side for now, but Pakistan were clearly the better-drilled and more fluent outfit, after their tough series against South Africa. Pakistan will also take pleasure in the versatility of their XI from the first match. Left-arm seamer Usman Khan had debuted as a frontline bowler on Wednesday, but after a wayward first over, he was not required to bowl any more, as the spin-bowling allrounders delivered their quotas cheaply. Similarly, 22-year-old Bilawal Bhatti produced a crucial 10 runs fr ...
Letter to indian team Dear Men in Blue: I know the past few days have been terrible for you. The fans were circumspect about this tour even before you boarded the flight to South Africa; and when their fears came true, the nails and teeth have come out to rip you apart. If the defeats have hurt you badly, the mindless sarcasm has not done you any better. Of course, there is a reason to feel dejected. There is, however, no reason to feel demoralised. Over the years, the South African fast bowling unit has turned into a relentless, unstoppable behemoth that has been crushing every opposition, especially at home. Over the past two years they have managed to bowl out Sri Lanka for 43, New Zealand for 45, and Pakistan for 49 — all in the longest version of the sport. There is, thus, nothing to be ashamed of the result. There is nothing disgraceful in not being able to stand against Dale Steyn. Steyn is one of the greatest fast bowlers the world has seen in the last 25 years, and at times he becomes almost un ...
Sri Lanka and Pakistan will use their two-match series in Dubai starting on Wednesday to size each other up ahead of the World Twenty20 in three months' time. Pakistan, fourth in the Twenty20 rankings, are also aiming to topple Sri Lanka from the top of the standings by winning both matches, the second of which takes place on Friday. 'Sri Lanka are a top side so this is in itself a motivation to beat the number one side and if we win both it will lift us to the top of the world,' Pakistan captain Mohammad Hafeez said. If the series is a 1-1 draw the teams will maintain their current rankings while a 2-0 loss would push Hafeez's team down to fifth. Pakistan go into the matches well prepared after playing four Twenty20 games against South Africa last month. They also overcame tough resistance from minnows Afghanistan by six wickets in a last ball thriller in Sharjah on Sunday -- the first Twenty20 between the two countries. Pakistan will be at full strength and boosted by the return of magician off-spinner ...
Second Test Wrap-Up. 2013/14 Commonwealth Bank Series. Second Test Match: Australia v England December 5,6,7,8, 9 2013. Played at: Adelaide Oval, Adelaide. Toss: Australia (Bat) Team Changes: Australia: No Change England: IN: Ben Stokes, Monty Panesar. OUT: Chris Tremlett, Jonathan Trott. Australia 9/570 dec, & 3/132 dec. Defeated England 172 & 312. Australia won by 218 runs. Umpires: K Dharmasena (Sri Lanka) and M Erasmus (South Africa) The Australians have continued their strong start to the series, winning the second test in Adelaide. A fairly comprehensive performance once again, the Aussies needed only four days and just under an hour on Day 5 to dismantle the visitors. Another all-round performance sees them with a 2-0 series lead, which will be difficult to break, with the third test in Perth just four days away. Michael Clarke won the toss and after some fireworks from David Warner early, he was sent packing for 29, in an opening session that contained three brief rain delays. Chris Rogers was sol ...
Some Lessons From Nelson Mandela For Reconciliation In Sri Lanka By Laksiri Fernando - “Of all the people I have met, he was by far the greatest.” – Malcolm Brooke Fraser Nelson Mandela is no more, but his legacy would hopefully inspire people, particularly the young, for some generations to come all over the world, including Sri Lanka. Some years back, I was delighted to see the translation of his “A Long March to Freedom” into Sinhala and I am not sure who did that admirable task. I am also not sure whether it is also available in Tamil or not. Whatever the situation, the story of his life, his determination to struggle for justice, his vision for a reconciled society or nation, and most importantly, his exceptional human quality to be magnanimous and forgive are crucially important historical lessons for all communities in Sri Lanka in achieving a better future for their progeny. In a sense, South Africa’s conflict was much more complicated than Sri Lanka’s one. It was mainly a racial con ...
India bursts Lanka's IPL bubble Sri Lanka has not been considered as a venue for the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches next year as reports hint that India may consider playing in Malaysia or Singapore to avoid a clash with next year's general elections. Reports earlier suggested that at least seven matches of the cash-rich IPL may be played in Sri Lanka next year but the Sri Lankan officials denied reports saying that no formal request had been made. Sri Lanka has however kept it doors open and was willing to play host to the tournament. "There was no such official request but we have always told them (the Indian board) that we have facilities to host matches if needed," SLC Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said earlier. But reports that emerged yesterday suggested that Sri Lanka is no longer an option. Had Sri Lanka managed to host at least a few matches of the billion dollar tournament it would have injected some life to the cash-strapped Sri Lanka Cricket as the 2009 tournament in South Africa had inje ...
Islamabad: Pakistan fast bowler Bilawal Bhatti was waylaid in Dubai on Thursday after landing in the UAE with an expired visa. The Pakistan Cricket Board said in a statement it has made arrangements for Bhatti to stay at a hotel inside Dubai airport and has applied for a new visa. The board is hopeful the issue will be resolved within 24 hours and Bhatti can join the team. The board says Bhatti “inadvertently used his UAE visa to enter Dubai on his way back to Pakistan from South Africa” on Tuesday. Bhatti didn’t inform the PCB, and was caught out on the team’s return to Dubai. He made his Pakistan debut during the short limited-overs tour of South Africa last month, playing both Twenty20s and all three One Day Internationals, where Pakistan beat the Proteas in an ODI series for the first time. Pakistan play a Twenty20 against Afghanistan on Sunday in Sharjah before hosting Sri Lanka on a 10-match tour from next Wednesday.
Mandela's Legacy Now that Mandela is dead, many attribute him for liberating his people from a brutal system and treat him as a hero. Has he really achieved these or are they just empty words? South Africa is the wealthiest nation of Africa; with less than twice per capita GDP of Sri Lankans, the country sees their economy growing by meager 2.5% over the past year compared with 6.8% of ours. The country is riddled with many problems. The life expectancy at birth is 50 years for male while 48 years for female. This is over 72 years for Sri Lankan male while this is as high as 80 years for females. This shows that an average Sri Lankan lives 30 years more compared to an average South African.

Nearly three triples   Sehwag makes 293 against Sri Lanka   A bowler's worst nightmare: Sehwag scored 71% of his runs in boundaries 2009Virender Sehwag nearly became the first man to score three triple-centuries in Test cricket. The fans who had come to watch him set the record on day three of the Mumbai Test against Sri Lanka were in for a disappointment as he fell in the fourth over of the day, having added just nine to his overnight score: he finished on a manic 293 off 254 balls with 40 fours and seven sixes. Sehwag became the third fastest Indian to 6000 Test runs during the innings.   1995Mike Atherton's finest hour. Nobody gave England a prayer when they were set 479 to win or 165 overs to survive by South Africa in the second Test in Johannesburg. But Atherton was still there at the bitter end after 643 minutes and 492 balls of gallant resistance. He made 185 not out, his highest Test score, and got through the last two sessions with Jack Russell, who drove the South Africans to distraction wit ...

TRC Cannot Replace International Independent Investigations-By Visvanathan Category: Eelam The TRC had a number of high profile members: Archbishop Desmond Tutu (chairman), Dr. Alex Boraine (Deputy Chairman), Mary Burton, Advocate Chris de Jager, Bongani Finca, Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela, Sisi Khampepe, Richard Lyster, Wynand Malan, Reverend Khoza Mgojo, Hlengiwe Mkhize, Dumisa Ntsebeza (head of the Investigative Unit), Dr. Wendy Orr, Advocate Denzil Potgieter, Mapule Ramashala, Dr. Fazel Randera, Yasmin Sooka and Glenda Wildschut. They are all people of character and social standing. Yasmin Sooka was one of the three people chosen by the UN Secretary General to formulate the Penal of Experts (P of E) Report. This report virtually damned the Sri Lankan government for gross Human Rights violations. South Africa has now volunteered to play the role of a peace maker. The question is whether South Africa is fit country to play that role, after having supported Sri Lanka on the ethnic problem in international fo ...
US exempts India, China from Iranian sanctions Washington: US on Saturday exempted some countries, including India and China, from the tough Iranian sanctions act as they continue to reduce their dependence on Iranian oil. "I am pleased to announce that, based on additional significant reductions in the volume of their purchases of Iranian crude oil, China, India, the Republic of Korea, Turkey, and Taiwan have again qualified for an exception to sanctions...(under) the National Defence Authorisation Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012," Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement. These additional reductions were determined based on an analysis of these economies' purchasing activity over the previous six months, Kerry said. Additionally, Malaysia, South Africa, Singapore and Sri Lanka have also qualified again for the NDAA exception because they no longer purchase crude oil from Iran, he said. Kerry's exemption in this regard came soon after the determination made by US President Barack Obama that ther ...
I see there has been a bit of confusion pertaining next year ICC T20 World Cup - fair enough confusion is part of cricket these days. I will try to simplify it now, The men's World Cup (By the way they run concurently with the ladies'), So the men's World Cup consists of 16 teams, get that one right - 16 teams. Automatic qualification for the Test playing nations- West Indies, India, Bangladesh, Australia, England, South Africa, Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Then there is the 6 teams from the associates that played the qualifiers (The final which is on today) - Ireland, Afganistan, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Nepal and United Arab Emirates.

The 1st round will have the 2 'strongest' Test playing nations (Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) and the 6 associate teams that played qualifiers. B ...
Ads Not by This Site List of Test cricket triple centuries From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Australian Donald Bradman is one of only four players in Test cricket to have scored 300 or more runs in a single inningson more than one occasion. The others areBrian Lara and Chris Gayle of the West Indies and Virender Sehwag of India. A triple century (an individual score of 300 or more) in Test cricket has been scored on 26 occasions by 22 different batsmen from seven of the ten Test-cricket playing nations.[1] No player from Bangladesh, New Zealand or Zimbabwe has scored 300, although Martin Crowe of New Zealand was dismissed for 299 in a match against Sri Lanka in 1991.[1] The First Test triple century was achieved by Andy Sandham of England against the West Indies in 1930 in the First Test series hosted in the West Indies.[2] The most recent Test triple century was made by Hashim Amla in the England vs. South Africa test match at the Oval from 19–23 July 2012.

Nairobi has been ranked among the top ten emerging global cities to watch by Chicago-based real estate management firm, Jones Lang Lasalle. The ranking, which is based on an aggregation of 150 global city indices, refers to Kenya’s capital as a “more stable business environment relative to Lagos, Cairo and Addis Ababa.” Austin in the US was ranked the top city to watch in the globe, Australia’s Brisbane emerged number two while Calgary in Canada was ranked third. Nairobi was placed number ten in a list that also featured Colombo (Sri Lanka), Nanjing (China), Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Santiago de Chile, ShenZhen (China) and Tel Aviv (Israel). “Nairobi is now one of Africa’s leading outsourcing centres, based particularly on its ability to attract human talent. An increasingly engaged national government has established a Ministry of Metropolitan Development to harness Nairobi’s regional potential as a liveable and resilient African metropolis,” notes the Jones Lang LaSalle report. The firm spe ...
Straight Talk – Our National Gulli – Danda Team.(The Nation, Sunday, 24th November,13) The performance of our so-called National Cricket Team during the recent cricket matches between Pakistan and South Africa in Dubai, shamed and humiliated the nation, with their dismal and shameful display of wild strokes and reckless batting. The world had laughed at the performance of our once, World Champion cricket team, which should now be renamed as our National Guli-Danda team and Mr. Boom-Boom should now be called Mr. Boo-Boo, resign and stick to tossing his hair for shampoo advertisements, instead of tossing away his wicket. And in the back-drop of this, the world paid glowing tributes to the legendary 40 year old iconic, but humble Indian batsman, Sachin Tendulkar, who has made India proud. The T20 Championships have become very popular in India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, but sadly, they have also become a money making racket, exposing players to greedy bookies and promoters, who entice players with promis ...
Tough times ahead for Sri Lanka in Geneva US secures second three-year term, joins UK, India November 22, 2013, 9:39 pm By Shamindra Ferdinando With the UK declaring its intention to move the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) against Sri Lanka at its next session in March, 2014, in the wake of the US being re-elected to the UN body, Sri Lanka was now facing an unprecedented broadside at the UN body, officials as well as diplomatic sources told The Island. The UK, too, won a place in the 47-member council. Altogether 14 countries secured seats in the council. They are Algeria, China, Cuba, Vietnam, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Macedonia, the Maldives, Mexico, Morocco, France, Namibia, South Africa and the UK. The US was re-elected for a second consecutive three-year term at the UNHRC on November 11 about a week before UK Prime Minister David Cameron warned Sri Lanka of dire consequences unless the government addressed accountability issues during the next four months. The warning was given on the sideli ...

“Look at our performance since 2011, we beat Sri Lanka, India in India, we won the Asia Cup, beat West Indies in West Indies. We have been poor only in this year. The reason for our downfall is that in previous years we were playing in conditions which suited us. But this year when our team went to South Africa, they were inexperienced and they were playing in alien conditions. There our batsmen struggled. Even in Champions Trophy, we were playing in England in alien conditions. Similarly in Zimbabwe, we were playing on seaming pitches. (Misbah)

Introduction Five hundred years ago in Northern India, Guru Nanak preached a beautiful universal message of faith, love and truthful living. His message was not meant for a particular religious or ethnic group. He addressed all humanity. Let us look at his teachings and life in the context of the current global environment and the challenges that face us, and see what kind of insights and prescriptions he offers to us in today’s flat, interconnected world. Long before jet travel and the World Wide Web, Guru Nanak set out to do the next best thing – he physically traveled much of the world on foot and by boat, for many years, making four epic journeys known as “Udasis”. He journeyed west through Mecca and Baghdad, north to Afghanistan and Tibet, East as far as Assam and South all the way to Sri Lanka. There have been no more than a handful of people besides Guru Nanak and Marco Polo who are known to have traveled through so much of the pre-Industrial Revolution world. Everywhere he went he “netwo ...
When the Imperial Cricket Conference (as it was originally called) was founded in 1909, only England, Australia and South Africa were members. India , West Indies and New Zealand became Test nations before the Second World War and Pakistan soon afterwards. The international game grew with several "affiliate nations" getting involved and, in the closing years of the 20th century, three of those became Test nations also: Sri Lanka , Zimbabwe and Bangladesh . Test cricket remained the sport's highest level of standard throughout the 20th century but it had its problems, notably in the infamous "Bodyline Series" of 1932–33 when Douglas Jardine's England used so- called "leg theory" to try and neutralise the run-scoring brilliance of Australia's Don Bradman. Suspension of South Africa (1970– 91) See also: International cricket in South Africa from 1971 to 1981 The greatest crisis to hit international cricket was brought about by apartheid , the South African policy of racial segregation.

"In the recently published report on "Ease of Doing Business", India has slipped from a rank of 131 in 2013 to a rank of 134. It ranks below Bangladesh (130), Pakistan(110), Nepal (105), Sri Lanka (85) i.e lowest among its immediate neighbours. It ranks pretty low among the BRICS nations too with Brazil(116), Russian Federation(92), China (96) , South Africa(41). India has slipped in the rankings since 2006 when it was ranked 116. In a globalised economy, India has to improve its perception among investors as a destination for doing business if it has to attract capital. India has also slipped from 64 to 66 in the ranking of the Global Innovation Index. India with its large pool of talented scientists and technocrats and its strength in ICT should be the hub of research and innovation. Unfortunately, the UPA has done precious little in the last 10 years to improve the situation. We need a leadership change in this country to steer India out of this rot."

South Africa v Pakistan, ODI series SA call on Kirsten to rejuvenate ODI batting Despite having talented batsmen in their ODI batting line-up, South Africa have failed to produce match-winning performances in recent times South Africa's roping in of their former coach Gary Kirsten to mentor their batsmen between the second and third ODIs against Pakistan might indicate there are some doubts within the team. From the outside, it would seem South Africa are in a state of some stress. Their coach Russell Domingo has only been in charge for three months and has already lost four ODIs and one Test. His Twenty20 series victory in Sri Lanka has almost faded from memory and questions have abounded on whether he feels he needs help. However, think back to when Kirsten chose not to renew his contract and Domingo was appointed his successor. "It would be foolish of me not to use Gary in some capacity," Domingo had said. This is not a cry for assistance. Domingo is making good on those words and using his predecessor ...

The last time South Africa lost a Test series abroad was in Sri Lanka in 2006. Since then, they have become the No. 1 ranked Test team and they will stay there, but their lead will be cut by four points by virtue of the drawn series. Pakistan have risen to No. 4, thanks to their victory in Abu Dhabi, but were unable to protect fortress UAE, losing in their adopted home for the first time since moving here in 2010.

DRAWN SERIES RESULTS YIELDS NO JOY FOR New Zealand Every Test counts as teams eye place in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship 2017, where 4 top ranking teams will qualify. A 0-0 drawn series with host Bangladesh has resulted in New Zealand dropping four ratings points, but it has retained its eighth rank on the Reliance ICC Test Team Rankings table. 8th-ranked New Zealand entered the series with 79 ratings points, leading Bangladesh by 69 ratings points. As such, because the rankings are weighted to reflect this difference, Black Caps would have gained just 1 ratings point if it had won both the Tests. Host Bangladesh, ranked 10th, had entered the series with 10 ratings points. The 0-0 series result meant that it gained eight ratings points to end at 18 and thereby reduced the gap with ninth-ranked Zimbabwe to 16.

October 20 down the years See ball, hit ball Birth of a batsman who knows no fear 1978 A swashbuckling batsman is born. Virender Sehwag drew comparisons with Sachin Tendulkar when he burst onto the international stage with a debut century against South Africa in 2001-02. An irresistible sight when on song, Sehwag changed the way India perceived openers. He will always be associated with India's first triple-century - in Multan in 2003-04. His one-day batting has often been patchy, prompting the selectors to drop him in 2007, but he made a comeback to the Test and one-day sides halfway through the Australian tour of 2007-08. Then against South Africa in Chennai, he smashed the quickest triple-century in Test cricket, off just 278 balls. He eventually made 319 - the highest score by an Indian - and in the process became only the third batsman, after Don Bradman and Brian Lara, to pass 300 twice in Tests. A tough tour of Sri Lanka followed, but Sehwag illuminated Galle with 251 runs in another famous oversea ...
Symbolism of Gandhiji’s Hind Swaraj is both intense and far reaching. In this write-up one gets the preview of the nature of ugly events to come. The Council for Social Development and the India International Centre (IIC), both of New Delhi, jointly sponsored an international seminar on “Social Development and the Human Civilisation in the 21st Century” from 12-14 February at the IIC on the occasion of the centenary of Hind Swaraj. Other collaborating organisations were three well known universities of Delhi and some other universities of Brazil, Peru, the USA and South Africa. It was reported that a couple of delegates from the Latin America were members of armed Marxist partisan groups for some time. But later on they sought the other path as armed insurrection movements did not yield appropriate results. There were large number of foreign delegates along with the participants from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal. Participants included known Gandhians, academics, Marxist ideologue ...

I (Matthew Waites) had an excellent discussion last night on a panel with UK Minister in the Department for International Development, Lynne Featherstone MP - at the Liberal Democrat conference, fringe meeting organised by LGBT+ Liberal Democrats and Liberal Youth. Lynne Featherstone is definitely a true and passionate friend of LGBT people, having for example produced a groundbreaking report 'Advancing transgender equality' when she was previously Minister for Equalities at the Home Office. Her responsibility for LGBT issues at DFID presents key opportunities for the transnational *** politics. I suggested - as the book argues - that in the Commonwealth (in the run up to the forthcoming Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Sri Lanka) a good strategy to disrupt perceptions of LGBT issues as a Northern concern may be to encourage Southern state leadership, which has worked at the UN with resolutions led by South Africa and Colombia on SOGI issues at the Human Rights Council. Given that the Bah ...

Bangladesh finalised as Asia Cup hosts Chennai, September 14 Top members of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) today discussed the modalities of the 2014 Asia Cup tournament, which is to be hosted by Bangladesh for a second straight time, in February-March next year. The tournament, to be held from February 24 to March 8, has gone to Bangladesh after India, who had earlier agreed to host it, backed out citing a packed international schedule. Bangladesh had hosted the last edition of the tournament in 2012. The tournament host was announced during ACC's meeting in April and the details were discussed in today's meeting here, according to ACC sources. In the meeting, the BCCI also explored the possibility of hosting an ODI tri-series involving Pakistan and Sri Lanka later this year as back-up plan for India's trouble-hit tour of South Africa in November and December. A more clearer picture on this will emerge after Monday's meeting between BCCI's secretary Sanjay Patel and South Africa Cricket chief Haroon Lor ...
1998 - Bangladesh Winners: South Africa Runners-up: West Indies No. Countries: 9 The first edition of the ICC Champions Trophy, then known as the ICC Knockout Trophy, was staged in Bangladesh. All matches were played at the Bangabandhu Stadium in Dhaka, but the slow and low pitches produced some poor cricket. Severe flooding threatened to cause the whole show to be moved to India, and it only got the go-ahead at the 11th hour. As it was, Dhaka was the third choice after Disneyworld (Florida) and Sharjah. The knock-out format, with eight matches compressed into nine days, fuelled the locals' excitement. Nine teams took part in the event with only eight making it to the quarter-finals. New Zealand played Zimbabwe for the eighth spot and defeated them by five wickets to make it to the last eight. South Africa, Sri Lanka, India and West Indies progressed to the semi-finals. In a rain-affected first semi-final, South Africa defeated Sri Lanka by 92 runs on D/L method. Put into bat, man-of-the-match Jacques Kal ...
Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are likely to host all the matches of IPL 7, if not all but some matches, according to the report in “The Indian Express” yesterday on Tuesday. IPL was held in South Africa because of general elections in 2009. That was the second edition of the high voltage Twenty20 premier league. Deccan Chargers became the champion of PL 2. ‘A clear picture will emerge after the dates of the Lok Sabha elections will be announced. Until then, we will considering whether to arrange a few games in India and then move to abroad, or vice versa. Both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are the short journeys, so logically, it will not be much of the problem,’ a BCCI official said to the newspaper. ‘The decision to arrange IPL at South Africa in 2009 has been taken at the very last moment, and nobody expected then that there would be a big issue regarding security. But now we know that such situation could arise again, and we will be getting prepare for it,’ the official said. Indian Premier League i ...

The player draft of the second Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) season is scheduled for July 14 in Colombo and is expected to contain several international players, including a strong South African contingent, according to the league's chief executive officer, Ajith Jayasekara. The league is scheduled between August 10 and September 7. "We have the entire South African squad with the exception of Dale Steyn and Jacques Kallis lined up to take part," Jayasekara said. "Pakistan has also shown their intention to send their present lot of cricketers but the participation of most of their key players depends on whether their tour to Zimbabwe takes place." South Africa are due to tour Sri Lanka from July 20 to August 6 for five ODIs and three T20s and there is a possibility that members of the visiting team will stay back to participate in the league. "With the exception of England and India, players from all the other Test-playing nations have shown interest in participating in the league," Jayasekara said. "Ev ...
West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo has been suspended from his team's encounter with Sri Lanka in the fifth match of the Tri-Nation Series at the Queen's Park Oval on Sunday. In a decision handed down by the International Cricket Council match referee Jeff Crowe and released on Saturday, it was explained that the all-rounder faces the sanction due to his team's second minor over-rate offence in a 12-month period. The West Indies were determined to be one over short of the required over-rate during the fourth match of the series against India on Friday. It follows on a similar infraction less than a month earlier during the final group match of the Champions Trophy against South Africa at Cardiff on June 14. Bravo pleaded guilty to the offence and as the West Indies team did not contest the charge, there was no need for a formal hearing on the matter. Coming *** the heels of a 102-run loss to the Indians in that rain-affected fixture, Bravo's suspension represents a further setback to a home side that is ...
Star South African fast bowler Dale Steyn was excluded from two national squads Thursday for an 18-day tour of Sri Lanka. The Proteas play five one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches between July 20 and August 6 in capital city Colombo, Kandy and Hambantota. "We are resting Steyn as we have a very important and crowded Test season ahead," Cricket South Africa selection convener Andrew Hudson told reporters in Johannesburg. "We want to be absolutely certain that Dale, as the leader of our attack, is properly rested and fit. "Graeme Smith could not be considered because of his long-term recovery process following surgery." Steyn helped South Africa reach the ICC Champions Trophy semi-finals in England last month, while a recurring ankle injury sidelined star batsman Smith. The tour marks the debut of new Proteas coach Russell Domingo and he will be in charge of 16-strong ODI and T20 squads with 12 cricketers included in both. Hashim Amla, Colin Ingram, Alviro Petersen and Robin Peterson play only ...

A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.[1][2] Various forms of pyramid schemes are illegal in many countries including Albania, Australia,[3][4] Austria,[5] Brazil, Canada, China,[6] Colombia,[7] Denmark, the Dominican Republic,[8] Estonia,[9] France, Germany, Hong Kong,[10] Hungary, Iceland, Iran,[11] Italy,[12] Japan,[13] Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, the Netherlands,[14] New Zealand,[15] Norway,[16] the Philippines,[17] Poland, Portugal, Romania,[18] Russian Federation, South Africa,[19] Spain, Sri Lanka,[20] Sweden,[21] Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand,[22] Turkey,[23] the United Kingdom, and the United States.[24] These types of schemes have existed for at least a century, some with variations to hide their true nature, and because of this, many people believe that all multilevel marketing plans ar ...

Tony Greig's ECB memorial was held a few days ago. He may have been born in South Africa and the captain of England as well as an integral part of Australian cricket commentary, but towards the end of his rich life he added another string to his bow of nations. I'm proud that for the last three or four years of his life Tony Greig called Sri Lanka home. R.I.P champion. You will be remembered not only on our beautiful island, but all over the world.

Ind v SL, Champions Trophy, 2nd semi-final, Cardiff | India enter final with crushing win | On a Cardiff surface with a lot of moisture, the ball seamed, bounced steeply and turned appreciably, and the Indian bowlers were all over Sri Lanka after winning the toss. In the afternoon, the Indian Openers continued their run of impressive stands, adding 77 through some luck and some attractive shots, and India cruised home with 15 overs to spare. It would have reminded India of their first day of international cricket in South Africa on the 2010-11 tour, when they were inserted on a pitch that had absorbed a lot of rain and were bowled out for 136. Watching the first innings of this match, it seemed Sri Lanka had done well to not be rolled over for 136 themselves. The conditions were so juicy India's three frontline quicks bowled the first 22 overs - even MS Dhoni had a bowl later - and India either beat the bat or hit edge on 68 occasions. The Sri Lankan batsmen couldn't be blamed much, except for probably Ku ...
I'm feeling good that the Sri Lankan are heading to the Champions Trophy Finals by beating the Indian Cricket team... Go Lions! Go Sri Lanka!

Hosts England sauntered into the Champions Trophy final after South Africa 'choked' in yet another semi-final when they were bowled out for 175 in fairly benign conditions at The Oval on Wednesday. England, who came into cricket's second 50-over tournament having lost a home one-day series to New Zealand, scored 179 for three to knock off the required runs in 37.3 overs and win by seven wickets with Jonathan Trott notching 82 not out. David Miller top scored for pre-tournament favourites South Africa with 56 not out as the Proteas lasted only 38.4 overs. The second semi-final between World Champions India and Sri Lanka takes place on Thursday in Cardiff with England awaiting the winners at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday.
Which of the two semi-finalists do you want to see in the ICC Champions Trophy final? • India • Sri Lanka • England • South Africa
Amla memories make Cook sweat Match Facts Wednesday, June 19 Start time 1030 (0930 GMT) The Big Picture South Africa at The Oval, with Hashim Amla in the line up: it's a thought to make even Alastair Cook sweat. Go back further and the ground played host to a one-sided thrashing during the 1999 World Cup, the defeat so damaging in terms of net run rate that it went a long way to seeing England knocked out of the competition they were hosting. But England have won their last two encounters in global 50-over tournaments - in Centurion and Chennai - and will take comfort from South Africa's return to The Oval for an ODI last summer. Amla made 268 runs fewer than the 311 he amassed in the First Test, and was removed by no less a bowler than Jade Dernbach, before Jonathan Trott's patient half-century was followed a brisker one from Eoin Morgan in a four-wicket win. Sounds like a good formula, doesn't it? That the series finished 2-2 suggests these teams are reasonably well matched. Both have experienced a few ...

Sri Lanka knocks out Australia from ICC Champions Trophy, qualifies for semi Sri Lanka eliminated Australia from the ICC Champions Trophy today in the Group A match at The Oval. After winning the toss Australia set Sri Lanka to bat and Australia claimed the wicket of Kumar Sangakkara early on. But Mahela Jayawardena stepping into the plate with a maiden 84 raised Sri Lanka's total to 253 for 8. In reply Australia scored 233 for all out in 42.3 overs setting themselves for the exit. With the win against Australia Sri Lanka also knocked out New Zealand from the semifinal. Sri Lanka and England will advance to the Semi-final from Group A while India and South Africa will advance from Group B.
17 June: Australia vs Sri Lanka.with so many options of which teams can still make the semi-final: Aussie, Sri Lanka and even mom's beloved Black Caps. So, an important match indeed - mom loves Sri Lanka to bits but her love for the South Pacific countries are stronger.so with a heavy heart we supported Aussie (knowing that Sri Lanka IS the stronger team). I turned out to be a tight affair in the end.boring as Aussie had lots of balls to get the runs but no wickets.so, they tried to get to the total by singles. But in the end, Sri Lanka won and well deserved. Now they are up against the mighty Hindustan in the semi's and guess what semi WE are doing.England vs South Africa.could there have been a worse game for mom to work on? Anyway, we had to say goodbye to Uncle Ramiz Raja, uncle Wasim Akram and uncle Russel Arnold.and mom always gets kisses from uncle Ramiz and uncle Wasim :-( Uncle Simon Doull is also doing the India semi.so now we are stuck with Warne and Pommie! He he he. Mom has had a splitting he ...

Sri Lanka seals semifinal berth Sri Lanka will play India in the Champion Trophy semifinals after ousting defending champion Australia by 20 runs and overtaking New Zealand in the group standings on Monday. Sri Lanka posted 253-8 on a turning pitch at The Oval due to Mahela Jayawardene’s 84 from 81 deliveries and Lahiru Thirimanne’s 57. That meant Australia needed to eclipse the target in 29.1 overs to advance, a prospect that always seemed unlikely and proved increasingly so when it lost four wickets inside the opening nine overs. While the Sri Lankans missed a chance to edge England to win Group A, the victory delivered a double knockout in eliminating both finalists from the previous Champions Trophy in 2009, Australia and New Zealand. The Kiwis would have advanced with a Sri Lanka loss. Instead, Sri Lanka plays on Thursday in the second semifinal in Cardiff. England meets South Africa a day earlier at The Oval. The run rate for Australia initially wasn’t a problem through big-hitting Glenn Maxwe ...
There are few better experts on captaincy in Sri Lanka than Mahela Jayawardene, who was so well-respected in the role that the selectors effectively forced a second stint upon him. In his first four years in the job, Sri Lanka enjoyed a period defined as much by the allure of their cricket as their success in Tests and ODIs. Test series victories over India, England and South Africa (the 2006 loss remains their last defeat away from home), an Asia Cup title and an impressive 2007 World Cup campaign were among his achievements as a leader, and Sri Lanka rose to No. 2 in the world rankings across all formats soon after his initial resignation. Late last year, Jayawardene announced he would not captain Sri Lanka beyond the year-end tour of Australia, because it was time for Sri Lanka to produce a young leader while he and the other seniors remained in the team to provide guidance. Angelo Mathews has long been the heir for Sri Lanka, and he took over the ODI and Test captaincy in February. Mathews has the unr ...

Group 'A' Champions Trophy: England win toss, opts to field against Lanka Jun 13 In the Group 'A' ICC Champions Trophy cricket match at the Oval in London, England were 91 for One in 21 overs against Sri Lanka, a short while ago. Earlier, Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to field. England are looking for a semi-final slot, but for Sri Lanka it is a battle for survival. In their opening matches, while England beat Australia by 48 runs, Sri Lanka lost by a wicket to New Zealand. Tomorrow, South Africa will take on the West Indies at Cardiff in a Group 'B' fixture.
Sri Lanka spinner Muttiah Muralitharan, true to form, holds the greatest economy rate in a single match (qualifier: 30 deliveries). His 10 miserly overs churned out against the West Indies in Nairobi in 200 conceded a mere nine runs - for an entirely cheap aggregate of 0.90. Six years later, the Windies were bogged down by another Sri Lankan in seamer Chaminda Vaas - and his six-over economy rate of just 1.00. West Indian Chris Gayle, South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs and India's Sourav Ganguly boast the most centuries, with three each. Gibbs has the better ratio, scoring his tons in three games less than Ganguly and four fewer than Gayle. Australia's Shane Watson, meanwhile, will have the opportunity to draw level - and perhaps go one better - on the back of 2009's twin tons. Watson, however, has also accrued the unwelcome record of most tournament ducks. His four will remain unrivalled, unless captain Dwayne Bravo bags a couple during the West Indies' Group B campaign in the United Kingdom. Former Sri Lan ...
ICC Champions Trophy Preview: Buoyant New Zealand gear up for Sri Lanka's spin trial. Cardiff: New Zealand are preparing to face a spin barrage from Sri Lanka when the two sides meet in the Champions Trophy in Cardiff on Sunday. New Zealand go into the tournament after a morale-boosting 2-1 one-day series win over hosts England, but Brendon McCullum's side know Sri Lanka will throw up new challenges. "We could conceivably be facing 30-35 overs of spin," Black Caps coach Mike Hesson said ahead of the group A game. "We need to be proactive against it." Sri Lanka's spin attack includes four capable tweakers in Sachitra Senanayake, Jeevan Mendis, Rangana Herath and Tillakaratne Dilshan. Unorthodox slow bowler Ajantha Mendis was not picked for the tournament. With sling-arm fast bowler Lasith Malinga and steady seamer Nuwan Kulasekara also in the ranks, Sri Lanka have their options covered for what are expected to be good batting conditions in Cardiff. India and South Africa played a high-scoring match at the ...
ENGLAND V AUSTRALIA - ICC Champions Trophy England open their ICC Champions Trophy campaign at Edgbaston, against old foes Australia. The two teams are in Group A, with New Zealand and Sri Lanka for company. This will be the first match from this group; South Africa, India, West Indies and Pakistan have already played one round of matches each from Group B. England beat New Zealand by 34 runs in their last One Day International (ODI). The match was the third of a three-match series; Alastair Cook's men's win did nothing to change the outcome of that series for the Kiwis had already won the first two. Cook was dismissed for a duck but Ian Bell, Jonathan Trott, Joe Root and Eoin Morgan managed reasonable scores with the bat. A whirlwind 47 off 16 balls by Jos Buttler pushed England to 287 in their innings. The visitors made England sweat for their win. Ross Taylor top scored with 71 but the star of the first two ODIs - Martin Guptill - was the big wicket. The New Zealand opener followed his unbeaten 103 at ...
ICC World Test Championship- The Format. According to an announcement made by the ICC at their headquarters in Dubai, the format will comprise an inaugural league stage, played over a period of four years, with all current 10 test cricket nations of the ICC (Australia, India, England, South Africa, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, NewZealand, West Indies, Zimbabwe, and Bangladesh) participating. They will compete in a league stage spread over four years, and then the top four teams will take part in the playoffs with the final determining the Test cricket champions. No decision has been made concerning how to decide the outcome of drawn matches in the knock-out stages.
Are you Satisfied With Pakistan's Preparations for the Champions Trophy? At the conclusion of Pakistan's victory over South Africa, let's recap the steps that the team has taken to prepare for the Champions Trophy. 1) 10-Day Bowling Camp with Wasim Akram in Karachi 2) 6-Day Conditioning Camp in Abbottabad 3) 2 ODIs v Scotland 4) 2 ODIs v Ireland 5) 2 Warm-Up Matches (1 v Sri Lanka, 1 v South Africa) We've seen the fast bowlers praise the camp while the rest of the team also had kind words for the conditioning camp. Pakistan probably would have liked to dominate Scotland and Ireland instead of letting them run the matches so close, but getting suited to the conditions and even experiencing some clutch situations will help them going forward I believe. The warm-up victory over South Africa is a great confidence boost ahead of the group matches. Out of the 6 ODIs scheduled: 3 Wins 1 Tie 2 No Result Are you satisfied With Pakistan's preparations for the Champions Trophy? If not, what would you have planned di ...

Three cities will host the tournament's matches: London (at The Oval), Birmingham (at Edgbaston) and Cardiff (at the SWALEC Stadium, known as Cardiff Wales Stadium for the tournament).

John Mccain, bless his heart, wants the USA to start bombing in Syria. He wants to send more weapons and money to the Al Qaeda based rebels, (AKA terrorist). John Mccains reason is people are dying. Where do we draw the line on a legal government in a foreign country? Do we bomb every country that citizens are dying in? If so, lets start with the Congo, Yemen, China, Equatorial Guinea, Chad, Central African Republic, Libya, Kenya, Haiti, Colombia, Guinea Bissau, Iran, Uzbekistan, India, Kosovo, Cote D'ivoire, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Rwanda, Burundi, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Angola, Mali, Sri Lanka, Russia, Tunisia and don't forget Mexico. Maybe we should bomb ourselves since Obama admits to targeting Americans. Perhaps we should be that shining city on a hill.
Arnold predicts Lanka as 'threat' to opponents in ICC Champions Trophy: Former cricketer Russell Arnold has predicted that Sri Lanka will be a major threat to opposing ICC Champions Trophy teams, though England and South Africa are being touted as favourites to win the tournament.
Australian captain Michael Clarke has responded to claims from new West Indian ODI captain Dwayne Bravo - who believes the team from the Caribbean has been drawn in the 'group of death.' "I think both groups are very hard, only four teams can go through (to the semi-finals)," Clarke said at a press conference in Cardiff. "To me, it's about making sure come that first game you're as ready as you can be. I don't think there's enough time in this tournament to build momentum like you might be able to do in a World Cup." Australia is in 'Group A' with England, Sri Lanka and New Zealand, while 'Group B' contains India, South Africa, Pakistan and the West Indies. NH

Rest in peace Lee Rigby, the soldier from Woolwich and all those massacred everyday around the world. My thoughts and prayers are with Lee Rigby's family and the families of those suffering and dying in atrocities around the world. Horrific indeed, any such perpetrators are clearly devoid of an ounce of humanity or faith. It is a reflection of the current state of the world sadly. Only we can we can make changes and stop the inhumane, murderous, genocidal acts of terror around the world such as those being committed right now against the Palestinians, Syrians, Afghans, Rohingya, Bangladeshis, Libyans, Iranians, Iraqis and the people of Darfur, Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Togo, Rwanda, Nigeria, Botswana, Guinea Bissau, South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Columbia, Brazil, Cuba, North Korea, Nepal, Burma (Myanmar), Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Gujrat, Kashmir, Russia-Chechnya, Laos, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Philipines and China. Because we are the human race.
The major religion of the Indian Subcontinent is Hinduism. The word derives from an ancient Sanskrit term meaning "dwellers by the Indus River," a reference to the location of India's earliest known civilization in what is now Pakistan (see Indus Valley Civilization). Apart from animism, from which it may have partly derived, Hinduism is the oldest of the world's religions . It dates back more than 3,000 years, though its present forms are of more recent origin.       Today more than 90 percent of the world's Hindus live in India. Significant minorities may be found in Pakistan and Sri Lanka, and smaller numbers live in Myanmar, South Africa, Trinidad, Europe, and the United States.       Hinduism is so unlike any other religion that it is difficult to define with any precision. It has no founder. Its origins are lost in a very distant past. It does not have one holy book but several. There is no single body of doctrine. Instead there is a great diversity of belief and practice. Many doctrines would ...
