Abid Ali Aims To Resume Training As Soon As Possible After Undergoing Successful Angioplasty In December 2021

Abid Ali, the Pakistan cricketer who underwent angioplasty in December last year, has started his rehabilitation at Lahore’s National High-Performance Centre (NHPC). The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) medical team is assessing the batter’s progress.

In a video shared by the PCB on their social media handles, Abid Ali revealed how he felt uneasy while batting in a Quaid-e-Azam fixture. The 34-year old stated that he had to leave the ground as the pain intensified.

Abid Ali Felt Uneasy During A Quaid E Azam Trophy Match And Underwent Successful Angioplasty In December 2021

The 34-year-old was diagnosed with a case of Acute Coronary Syndrome after he complained of chest pain while batting for Central Punjab against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the last round of Quaid-e-Azam Trophy. He underwent a successful angioplasty in December 2021.

The 34-year-old Abid faced an unusual health condition on December 21 when he felt chest pain while playing a Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match in Karachi. The right-handed batter immediately after the chest pain, was rushed along with the team doctor to a local hospital in Karachi where he underwent angioplasty.

Abid Ali said: “I started to feel uneasiness during my innings in a Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match. I got a bit worried, and then I felt pain. When the pain intensified, I did some running and spoke to my partner, Azhar Ali, whether I should speak to the umpires. Then I spoke to the umpires and they allowed me to leave the ground.”

Abid Ali was later admitted to a hospital, where his ECG report suggested that a valve of his heart was blocked.

“While walking off the ground, I felt more uneasiness as I reached the rope and started to vomit and feel dizzy. The team physio and doctor Asad ran towards me. They took off my pads and rushed me in an emergency to a hospital. I thought this is just normal gas or muscular pain. The doctors conducted ECG, which did not come out fine. Doctors told me that a valve of my heart was blocked and they will have to put two stents,” Abid Ali added.

Abid Ali revealed that doctors were in shock as his heart was working at only 30 percent, whereas the heart of a normal person generally works at 55 percent.

“The doctors were stunned by how I was able to even walk as my heart was operating at 30 percent. The heart of a normal person or athlete operates at 55 percent,” Ali said.

Brad Hogg Picks Ravichandran Ashwin As His Best Bowler For The Year 2021

Former Australia spinner Brad Hogg has picked Ravichandran Ashwin as his best bowler in 2021. Ashwin picked 54 wickets in 9 Tests last year with an average of 16.64 which included three fifers.

Speaking on his Youtube Channel, Brad Hogg reviewed the year 2021 as he picked Joe Root as his no-brainer choice for best batter for the year 2021. Root scored 1708 runs with an average of 61 which included 6 hundreds. But as far as bowling is concerned, Brad Hogg stated that India’s off-spinner was head and shoulders above the rest.

Ravichandran Ashwin picked 54 wickets in 9 Tests in 2021:

“Spin to win, he’s the number 1,” Brad Hogg said.

“Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali, 47 and 41 wickets for them (respectively). They have been carrying Pakistan in the bowling department, so you can’t beat those 2,” he added.

Notable that Ravichandran Ashwin also made a comeback for T20Is after 4 long years and he returned with figures of 9 wickets in 5 games as he played in T20 World Cup and a home series against New Zealand.

Shaheen Shah Afridi picked 47 wickets in 9 Test matches as he picked a fifer against West Indies, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh. On the other side his fellow pacer Hasan Ali also returned with exceptional figures as he picked 41 wickets in 8 Test matches with an average of 16.07 as the 27-yeat old returned with 5 fifers- 2 each against South Africa and Zimbabwe while one was against Bangladesh last month.

The duo also had exceptional figures in T20Is as well. Shaheen Shah Afridi picked 23 wickets in 21 games with an economy of 7.86 which included his famous 3/31 against arch-rivals India which scripted Pakistan’s first-ever win against India in a World Cup game. While Hasan Ali got 25 wickets in 18 T20Is with an economy of 8.07.

Other noteworthy mentions for the best Test bowler would be Jimmy Anderson as the 39-year old picked 39 wickets last year with an exceptional average of 21 which included two fifers as well.

Axar Patel also created havoc in his debut year as a Test cricketer as he picked 36 wickets in 5 games with an average of 11.86 which included 5 fifers.

Shaheen Shah Afridi Had An Exceptional 2021 Across All Formats

Shaheen Shah Afridi had a stellar 2021 across all formats. In nine Tests, he took 47 wickets and backed up with eight wickets in six ODIs and 23 wickets in 21 T20Is. His three for 31 against India in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 has made him one of the four candidates for the Impactful Performance of the Year award.

Run-machine Mohammad Rizwan(most runs in T20Is in 2021) and fast bowler Hasan Ali also had a year to celebrate, which is now reflected in their nominations.

Inzamam-ul-Haq Hints That Problems Between BCCI, Ravi Shastri And Virat Kohli Led To India’s Early Exit From T20I World Cup

Inzamam-ul-Haq, the former Pakistan captain, feels that the relations between Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri may have turned frosty ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021, which resulted in India’s early exit from the ICC tournament.

The legendary former Pakistan batter reckons the announcement of Virat Kohli stepping down as India’s T20 captain after the World Cup was something the BCCI and the team could have done without.

Inzamam-ul-Haq: Virat Kohli’s Statement Of Leaving Captaincy After T20I WC Not Good And All Knew Ravi Shastri Was To Be Replaced By Rahul Dravid

Inzamam-ul-Haq has made a bold statement about the Indian cricket team and their performance against Pakistan at the T20 World Cup 2021, which saw the Men in Blue lose to their arch-rivals for the first time ever in World Cups. The former Pakistan captain commented about India’s performance against Pakistan at the T20 World Cup 2021.

“I said this even before the match, that this statement of leaving captaincy after the tournament… it is not good. You have to play a big event and this shows that there is pressure on you and you are not comfortable. They all knew that after this tournament, Shastri was to get replaced by Dravid,” Inzamam-ul-Haq said.

Inzamam-ul-Haq weighed in further on the matter, pointing out that the news of Ravi Shastri’s impending departure and Virat Kohli stepping down as the team’s T20I captain indicated that not all was right within the Indian camp, including relations between the captain-coach duo and the BCCI.

“This should not happen before a big event. Your authority gets challenged. And this means that relations between Kohli, Shastri, and the board were not great. If India were to win the T20 World Cup, would they have removed the captain and coach? There was some problem between them,” said the former Pakistan batter Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Pakistan hammered India by 10 wickets as the opening pair of Babar Azam, and Mohammad Rizwan chased down 152 to break the team’s almost three-decade-long jinx in World Cups.

Inzamam-ul-Haq: Pakistan Always Have A Good Pace Attack And Every Team Is A Little Apprehensive Facing Pakistan

Inzamam-ul-Haq spoke about Shaheen Shah Afridi’s destructive spell against India, which saw him return 3/31, including the wickets of openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma and later captain Virat Kohli. Lauding Pakistan’s pace battery comprising of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Hasan Ali, and Haris Rauf in T20I WC 2021, Inzamam-ul-Haq said the country’s pacers are of the quality that they can dismantle any batting unit in the world.

“Our fast bowlers always stamp their authority on India. We have always had a good pace battery. Every team is a little apprehensive about facing Pakistan’s bowling,” said Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Shaheen Shah Afridi ran through Team India’s top-order after he got rid of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul in his opening spell. Then he came back to dismiss Virat Kohli, who scored a half-century. He finished with 3-31 after dismissing India’s top scorer, skipper Virat Kohli for 57 in a total of 151-7 in 20 overs.

But in the end, the target of 152 was not enough as Pakistan openers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam scored 79*, and 68*, respectively, to win the match for their team by 10 wickets with 13 balls to spare.

In the next match, India managed only 110 for seven batting first against New Zealand. They lost the game by eight wickets, which pretty much sealed their fate in the T20 World Cup 2021.

Inzamam-ul-Haq Slams Bangladesh For Its Unsuccessful Overseas Record

Inzamam-ul-Haq, the former Pakistani skipper, has come down hard on the Bangladesh cricket team over their unsuccessful results away from home.

The 51-year old has opined that Bangladesh’s away performances are still similar to what they used to be 15 years ago. Inzamam-ul-Haq feels Bangladesh has harmed its own chances of competing abroad by making slow pitches in its own turf in Bangladesh.

Inzamam-ul-Haq: Bangladesh’s Away Performances Are Like 15 Years Back

Following Pakistan’s win against Bangladesh in the first T20I, he posted a video on his official YouTube channel, ‘Inzamam-ul-Haq The Match Winner’.  In his video, Inzamam-ul-Haq slammed Bangladesh and lamented that they haven’t learned much from their poor T20 World Cup 2021 campaign. He feels that apart from winning an odd ODI away from home, the Bangladeshi team has not done well on foreign turf.

“I thought Bangladesh would’ve learnt something from their poor World Cup performances. That maybe they will make better pitches or play better cricket. They’ve been playing cricket for the last 15-20 years and their away performances are just like it used to be 15 years back. It’s like winning an odd ODI once in a blue moon and nothing else,” said Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Bangladesh shocked the cricketing world by defeating Australia 4-1 and New Zealand 3-2 prior to the 2021 T20I World Cup, but it came on their own turf, but overseas, they have only beaten minnows Zimbabwe, Ireland, and inconsistent West Indies in the T20I bilateral series.

The Tigers were one of the poorest teams during the recent T20 World Cup in the UAE, losing all their matches in the Super 12s. Low bounce and sluggish surfaces have become synonymous with Bangladeshi pitches. Teams like Australia and New Zealand have found it extremely difficult to survive on these kinds of surfaces.

Inzamam-ul-Haq: As Soon As Bangladesh Plays Outside They Seem Desolated

In his review, the former Pakistani cricketer pointed out that they seem’ desolated’ whenever Bangladesh plays outside their country. He added that by making ‘pathetic pitches’, they are preventing the development of their own cricketers.

Inzamam-ul-Haq said: “It was a typical match (1st T20I between Bangladesh and Pakistan) in Bangladeshi conditions. We’ve seen this over the years. Teams like Australia and other found it extremely difficult to win in Bangladesh. But as soon as Bangladesh plays outside of their country, they seem desolated.”

“They were nowhere to be seen in the recent World Cup. And this is because they make absolutely pathetic pitches in their country. They don’t even give their players a chance to groom and feel satisfied just by winning matches in Bangladesh. I’m extremely disappointed to see this,” Inzamam concluded.

After winning the first T20I by four wickets, Pakistan will look to clinch the series when the two teams meet in Dhaka for the second T20I later today (November 20).

Bangladesh will have a lot to ponder about after the loss in the first game but do not have too much time as they face Pakistan less than 24 hours after the first game. With several new faces in the squad after the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Bangladesh put up a tremendous fight but will be ruing the missed opportunity, having had Pakistan’s backs against the walls at 24/4 chasing 128.

Afif Hossain, Nurul Hasan, and Mahedi Hasan were the only three batters to reach double figures, with the latter two providing some late impetus to put a target of 128 for Pakistan to chase down. Hasan Ali put the disappointing World Cup semi-final showing behind him and returned with figures of 3/22 in four overs.

Like Bangladesh, Pakistan too faltered early, losing four wickets in the fielding restrictions. However, Fakhar Zaman and Khushdil Shah, who scored 34 each, strung together a game-changing 56-run partnership before Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz put on a show for the crowd in Dhaka with an unbeaten 36-run stand in just 15 balls to take Pakistan home and give them a 1-0 series lead.

Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah Riyad once again chose to bat first after winning the toss against Pakistan, in the second T20I in Dhaka. The home side didn’t make any changes, while Pakistan’s Shaheen Shah Afridi replaced Hasan Ali.

Mushfiqur Rahim’s Axe From Pakistan T20Is Is Entirely Team Management’s Decision: Mahmudullah Riyad

Mahmudullah Riyad, Bangladesh captain, recently addressed questions about Mushfiqur Rahum’s exclusion from the home T20 series against Pakistan. Mahmudullah Riyad revealed he did not influence Mushfiqur Rahim’s omission from the squad and that Bangladesh would miss him.

Mushfiqur Rahim was a notable miss from the squad for the three-match T20 series, which began on November 19. However, the selectors have justified their decision by revealing they have rested the veteran. Chief selector Minhajul Abedin said they decided to do so, considering the team’s busy schedule ahead.

Mahmudullah Riyad: Mushfiqur Rahim’s Axe From Pakistan T20Is Is Entirely Team Management’s Decision

When asked, Mahmudullah Riyad revealed he is unaware of the selectors’ decision behind Mushfiqur Rahim’s omission. Citing the decision solely of the management, the 35-year-old stated that it would be better if the team management is asked for their opinions.

“If you ask the team management, it will be better. I am not sure what Mushfiqur said and can only say something after seeing it. This decision (excluding Mushfiqur from T20) is entirely of the team management and I am not ready to say anything in this regard, but all I can say is that we will miss Mushfiqur in the series.”

Mushfiqur Rahim had a forgettable T20 World Cup campaign in the UAE, managing only 144 runs in eight matches at 20.57. However, Bangladesh’s winless Super 12 run in the tournament is said to have prompted the selectors to revamp the squad and name plenty of youngsters.

Bangladesh Cricket Board has served Mushfiqur Rahim a show-cause notice after the veteran wicketkeeper’s outburst following his omission from the Pakistan T20I series. The selectors had said that the Bogra-born cricketer was rested, considering the four Tests against Pakistan and New Zealand that are part of the 2021-23 World Test Championship cycle.

Mushfiqur Rahim didn’t have the best of campaigns in the T20 World Cup 2021, after which he was sidelined. The veteran had poor outings even in Bangladesh’s bilateral home series prior to the multi-nation mega event in Oman and the UAE. He will now have to attend a hearing where he might be asked to put forth an explanation behind his reaction. Mushfiqur Rahim averages a mere 19.8 in 99 T20Is, managing only 1465 runs since his debut in 2006.

Mahmudullah Riyad Will Continue As Bangladesh Skipper If Board Thinks He’s Good Enough For The Role; Pakistan Wins 1st T20I

Mahmudullah Riyad also opened up on his captaincy position, which has come under scrutiny following an underwhelming World Cup campaign.

He said: “It is totally the team management or board’s decision. I am not too worried about it. I will continue if they think I am good enough. If I have to say about my position (as the captain), then I will have to say a lot of things and I don’t want to say it here.”

The three-match T20 series against Pakistan starts on Friday, with all three contests set to be hosted by Dhaka. The two sides will also play a couple of Tests following the T20Is.

Pakistan recovered from early blows to beat Bangladesh by four wickets in the first T20 international at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka. After being reduced to 24/4, Khushdil Shah’s knock of 34 helped Pakistan rally from the early blows and pipped the hosts to victory. Earlier in the day, Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah Riyad won the toss and decided to bat first.

Hasan Ali, whose dropped catch cost Pakistan dearly in the T20 World Cup semi-final, was the pick of the bowlers as he took three wickets. Mohammad Wasim Jr picked up two wickets as the hosts could only manage to reach 127/7 in their allotted 20 overs. Afif Hossain top-scored with 36 runs.

Matthew Wade Played T20 World Cup Final Despite Picking Grade 2 Side Strain

Matthew Wade played a remarkable inning in the T20 World Cup 2021 semi-finals that will be remembered for ages. Batting at No. 7, the Australia wicketkeeper-batsman smoked three back-to-back sixes that knocked out knocked Pakistan out of the tournament.

He returned unbeaten on 41 off just 17 deliveries as the Aussies were through to the finals with a five-wicket win. However, days after Australia’s first-ever T20I World Cup triumph, Matthew Wade disclosed that he played the high-octane final against runners-up New Zealand on November 14 with a grade 2 side strain.

Matthew Wade Picked Up Grade 2 Side Strain At Training A Dey Before Final Of 2021 T20I World Cup

As reported, the 33-year-old picked up the injury at training a day before the final face-off in Dubai. He was taken for the scans, which revealed a grade two strain. Matthew Wade said that he was worried about getting ruled out that would have meant an international debut for Josh Inglis.

“I was a little bit worried the night before the game, for sure,” Wade said.

“If I had woken up and I couldn’t swing the bat, I wouldn’t have played. I was worried that if we’d batted first and I had to go as hard as I could, and I tore it then, I wouldn’t be able to keep, and that would hurt the team a lot.”

“But in my mind, they would have had to strap me to the bed. I was always going to go out there and play. But I wouldn’t have played if there was a chance it was going to hurt the team. I went and hit some balls before the game and bluffed my way through that. Then they made me hit a few more, but I got through it and it felt pretty fine,” he added.

The report further quoted all-rounder Glenn Maxwell explaining how Matthew Wade tried to hide his injury during the training session.

“The way he was gingerly hitting underarms (in the warm-ups) … I said ‘what’s going on here? Hit the ball harder!’,” Maxwell said. “And he said, ‘I’ve got a side strain’. I didn’t even know.”

Matthew Wade (41 not out off 17) and Marcus Stoinis (40 off 31) shared an unbeaten 81-run stand for the sixth wicket to pull off a five-wicket win over Pakistan in the 2nd semi-final.

After his semi-final heroics, Matthew Wade, who turns 34 in December, said that he thought he might be playing his last international match for Australia. But he confirmed on Thursday that he would love to play in Australia’s title defence at home next year to finish off his international career.

Matthew Wade Will Focus On 2022 T20I World Cup After Missing Ashes Due To The Injury

Matthew Wade now has lost his spot in the upcoming Ashes Down Under owing to the injury and will focus on the next year’s T20 World Cup that will be held in Australia. As a result, Wicket-keeper-batsman Matthew Wade, whose heroic innings saw Australia win the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021, and the man of the match of the final, Mitchell Marsh, have not been included in the team for the Ashes 2021/22.

“That’ll be my next motivation – hopefully get to that World Cup, defend the title and then I can sail off into the sunset. I certainly won’t be playing (international cricket) beyond that point. That would be my goal from here,” Wade said.

After the dropped catch by Hasan Ali in the penultimate over, Keeper Matthew Wade subsequently smacked Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi for three consecutive sixes as Australia won with an over to spare. Marcus Stoinis (40*) and Matthew Wade (41*) took Australia over the line in a pulsating finish in Dubai against Pakistan.

Hasan Ali Issues Apology To Pakistan Fans After Dropping Catch And Returning With Figures Of 0/44 In 4 Overs Against Australia

Hasan Ali has apologized to fans after Pakistan’s heartbreaking loss in the semi-final of the ongoing ICC T20I World Cup against Australia. Pacer Hasan Ali was trolled by fans for dropping a crucial catch of Matthew Wade in the T20 World Cup semifinal between Pakistan and Australia.

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam had backed pacer Hasan Ali to deliver the goods for the Green Army at the T20 World Cup. However, the struggling pacer failed to repay the team’s faith in the second semi-final of the showpiece event against Aaron Finch’s Australia on Thursday. Hasan Ali’s costly mistake had paved the way for Matthew Wade to punish Pakistan as the Finch-led Australian side secure their berth in the T20 World Cup final.

Hasan Ali Apologized To Fans After Pakistan’s Heartbreaking Loss In Semi-Final

In the aftermath of Pakistan’s heart-breaking defeat to Australia, Hasan Ali was subjected to online abuse as the out-of-form speedster faced the wrath of Pakistani fans on social media. In what turned out to be the final over of the match, Hasan Ali dropped an easy catch of Australia batter Matthew Wade, who then smoked three sixes in three balls to win the match for his team.

On Saturday, the speed merchant of the Babar Azam-led side issued an apology to Pakistani fans after the national team’s exit from the 2021 edition of the ICC T20 World Cup.  Taking to Twitter, the pacer shared a lengthy note and vowed to serve the Pakistan cricket team at the highest level.

“I know you all are upset because my performance didn’t meet your expectations … but [you] are not more disappointed than me. Don’t change your expectations from me. I want to serve [the] Pakistan cricket at the highest level possible, so back to hard work. This patch will make stronger,” Ali wrote in his post on the microblogging site. 

Hasan Ali’s latest tweet has come after several members of the cricket fraternity extended their support to the Pakistani cricketer following Pakistan’s T20 World Cup exit in the hands of Australia. Keeper Matthew Wade after the dropped catch subsequently smacked Pakistan pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi for three sixes as Australia won with an over to spare.

Hasan Ali, who scripted Pakistan’s memorable win over Team India in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final, had a forgetful show with the ball against Australia on Thursday. The Pakistani pacer went wicket-less and leaked 44 runs from the four overs he bowled in the high-scoring thriller against Australia. He also dropped the crucial catch of an on-song Matthew Wade in the 19th and penultimate over which propelled Australia to a thrilling win over Pakistan.

Hasan Ali, who had a poor World Cup, was expensive in the knockout clash as well. He went for 44 in his four overs and did not claim a wicket. More significantly, he dropped Matthew Wade during a crucial stage in the match. Hasan Ali, 27, has played 15 Tests, 57 ODIs, and 47 T20Is, where he picked 63, 89, and 57 wickets, respectively. In addition, he has picked 5 scalps in T20I WC, averaging a high 41.4 at an economy rate of 9, playing 6 games.

Aakash Chopra: If David Warner Doesn’t Play, Australia Becomes Half

While reflecting on Australia’s chase in a video shared on his YouTube channel, former opener turned commentator Aakash Chopra put David Warner on a high pedestal.

He elaborated: “If the Australian T20 team is a body, David Warner is its soul. If he doesn’t play, the team becomes half. But when he plays, we say form is temporary, David Warner is permanent and he is class when we talk about this format.”

While lauding David Warner’s knock, the former India cricketer was slightly critical of the six the Aussie opener hit off Mohammad Hafeez’s bowling.

Aakash Chopra observed: “He has been very very good. He played an amazing counter-attacking knock. He was just keeping Australia in the game. There was one moment though which broke my heart. The ball slipped out of Hafeez’s hands, who hits like that, I have never seen anyone do that even in Ranji Trophy but he hit a six.”

David Warner smashed a six into the stands off a Mohammed Hafeez delivery that bounced twice after it slipped out of the Pakistan off-spinner hand.

Aakash Chopra: Hasan Ali Dropped ‘Trophy’ As His Dropped Catch Cost The Match  Which Was In The Balance Till Then

Aakash Chopra pointed out that Shadab Khan had almost sealed the match in Pakistan’s favour with a four-wicket haul.  Shadab Khan managed to dismiss the dangerous David Warner, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, and Mitchell Marsh. From his four overs, the “electric leggie” managed to finish with figures of 4/26.

“After that Shadab took four wickets – it was game, set, match and all of that, in which Maxwell, Smith and Warner also got out. What else do you want? But after that Wade was there with Stoinis.”

The reputed commentator concluded by stating that a couple of indifferent overs by the Pakistan pacers Hasan Ali and Haris Rauf and Matthew Wade being let off by Hasan Ali cost the Babar Azam-led side a spot in the final.

Aakash Chopra explained: “The game was in the balance there as well because Wade was going at run-a-ball, Stoinis was hitting but Wade was keeping Pakistan in the game. And that is when the Hasan Ali over which also had a no-ball. After that, a Haris Rauf over and then there was a catch dropped by Hasan Ali, the heart was broken, it was not a white-colored ball but probably the trophy. Then three sixes, it was incredible hitting.”

Matthew Wade was dropped by Hasan Ali at deep midwicket on the third ball of the 19th over bowled by Shaheen Shah Afridi. The Australian wicketkeeper-batter hit the next three deliveries for sixes to knock Pakistan out of the tournament. Marcus Stoinis, along with Matthew Wade, put on 81 runs for the 6th wicket in just 6.3 overs to take their side over the line.

Marcus Stoinis smashed 40 not-out, while Matthew Wade hit 41* off 17 balls. 22 runs were needed in the last 12 balls, and Matthew Wade took Australia home with 6 balls to spare. Shaheen Shah Afridi got hammered for three sixes in a row in the penultimate over.
