Shadab Khan Can Potentially Be Pakistan’s Next Captain – Michael Vaughan

Former England captain Michael Vaughan has observed captaincy traits in young Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan. Vaughan feels Shadab is a wonderful cricketer and he has the skills to be potentially the next captain of the team. Meanwhile, recently Pakistan Cricket Board had removed former Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed from the captaincy role.

Subsequently, the PCB decided to give the limited-overs captaincy to Babar Azam whereas Azhar Ali took over the Test captaincy. On the other hand, Shadab Khan has impressed with his skills and he is a livewire on the field.

The 21-year old also has the experience of leading Islamabad United in the fifth season of the Pakistan Super League. Shadab Khan has led Islamabad United in 12 matches in which the team has won five whereas they have lost seven matches and thus he has a win percentage of 41.66.

Shadab Khan has shown the right skills

The leg-spinner was dropped from the second Test match final XI against England at Ageas Bowl, Southampton to make way for Fawad Alam who received his chance after a gap of 11 years. Shadab Khan had bowled only 11.3 overs in the first Test and had scalped two wickets. The right-hander had also played a crucial knock of 45 runs in the first essay to post an imperative alliance with opener Shan Masood.

Meanwhile, Michael Vaughan is not impressed by the change Pakistan made to their playing XI in the second Test. Wasim Akram, former Pakistan captain, had suggested that Fawad Alam should be included in the place of Shadab Khan.

“For me, Shadab Khan is a wonderful cricketer. I think Shadab Khan can potentially be the next captain of Pakistan,” he told Cricbuzz. “When you have got a batsman like Shadab Khan, who has actually scored decent runs in England. He can bowl leg-spinners, he is a brilliant fielder, great in the team bubble, and a cricket thinker.

“With Shadab Khan, I can pretty much guarantee that he will potentially get more runs than Fawad (Alam), bowl leg-spin, take a catch or two, create a run-out, and be a great team player. I’m a bit confused about that selection.”

Fawad Alam replaced Shadab Khan

Shadab Khan has played six Test matches in which he has scored 300 runs at an average of 33.33. Furthermore, the leg-spinner has taken 14 wickets in his young Test match career. There is no doubt that Khan will learn more with experience.

Pakistan is on the back foot in the second Test as they are tottering at 126-5 after England bowlers dominated the opening day.

England vs Pakistan 2020: Mushtaq Ahmed Reckons Yasir Shah And Shadab Khan Will Be Lethal

Pakistan’s spin bowling consultant Mushtaq Ahmed is confident that the spinners Yasir Shah and Shadab Khan would play a key role for Pakistan in the ongoing Test series against England. He heaped praise on the duo after they demolished England’s attack in the first inning of the opening Test match.

Cricket pundits had doubted Pakistan’s success with two spinners in the playing XI but Yasir and Shadab had silenced all the critics.

The former bowled an impressive spell, picking the prized wicket of England captain Joe Root. He returned with the figure of four for 66 from 18 overs on Friday. His spinning partner Shadab Khan demolished the lower-order, picking the wicket of Jofra Archer and James Anderson. He also amassed crucial 45 runs in the first innings.

Pakistan had given the target of 277 runs to England which is not easy to chase at the Old Trafford pitch. And with the visitor’s bowling attack, the host would have further fewer chances to get across the line.

Mushtaq Ahmed believes that Yasir and Shadab, who haven’t played for five-six months, have got back the momentum. He added that the duo has better understood the pitch would surely guide the team to get the lead.

“Yasir and Shadab have hardly played much cricket for the last five or six months, but the way they bowled in the first innings I think they’ve got the momentum now. They understand the pitch and what pace you need to bowl on it, what fields you need to have to different batsmen.

“I think they are feeling confident in their bowling now. Yasir especially, I think he started a bit nervously but we can understand that and I think he then bowled well and now if we set a good target, they can be lethal out there,” added Mushtaq, who previously held a similar position in England’s backroom staff.

Meanwhile, as of now, Mohammad Abbas had got the wicket of Rory Burns on the fourth day before lunch break. Dom Sibley and Joe Root are at the crease as England have put 55 runs on board.

Eng Vs Pak 2020, 1st Test: Day 2 – England Top-Orders Struggle After Shan Masood’s Brilliant 156

Though the visitors Pakistan had a difficult start at the beginning of the second day of the ongoing opening game of the three-match Test series against the hosts England at Old Trafford (Manchester), opener Shan Masood’s incredible 150+ and Pakistan pacers’ brilliant start marked the day for the visitors.

Starting the day on the overnight score of 139/2, Pakistan were struggling on 187/5 at the lunch, but Shan Masood’s 156 runs off 319 balls (18 fours and 2 sixes) massively helped the Pakistan team to manage the first innings total of 326 runs. In reply, Pakistan ended the day two on 92/4, trailing by 234 runs.

Pakistan innings: Shan Masood and Shadab Khan put the sixth wicket partnership of 105 runs

On the sixth ball of the day, English pacer James Anderson sent Babar Azam (69) back to the pavilion without adding any run on the team’s scoreboard.

Then another overnight batsman, opener Shan Masood completed his half-century (156 balls) in the next over. Meanwhile, English pacers Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes dismissed Asad Shafiq (7) and wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan (9) cheaply in the first session of the day.

 

However, in the second session, Masood built up the crucial 105 runs partnership for the sixth wicket with Shadab Khan. During that partnership, Masood completed his third successive Test century in 251 balls and became the sixth Pakistan batsman (second Pakistan opener) to score three consecutive Test centuries.

On the other hand, Shadab scored 45 runs before losing his wicket as it was the only wicket in that innings for the English off-spinner Dom Bess.

Around half-an-hour later, Jofra Archer dismissed Yasir Shah (5) and Mohammad Abbas (0) on back-to-back deliveries.

Then Masood played some big shots to add the runs quickly on the board. At the tea break, Pakistan were batting on 312/8.

On the seventh delivery of the last session, Broad dismissed Masood (lbw). Though the Pakistan opener took the DRS, there was no different luck for him. In his next over, Broad finished the visitors’ batting line-up after dismissing Naseem Shah for a duck. Shaheen Shah Afridi remained not out for nine runs.

While Broad (3/54) and Archer (3/59) took three wickets in that innings, Woakes (2/43) got two wickets and Anderson (1/63) managed to pick the same number of wickets of Bess (1/74).

England innings: All the top four batsmen lost their wickets cheaply

In reply, England were struggling on 12/3 in the sixth over. While the opener Rory Burns (4) was the victim of Shaheen Shah Afridi on the fourth ball of that innings, his opening partner Dom Sibley (8) was dismissed by Mohammad Abbas. English Test vice-captain Ben Stokes was then bowled by Abbas for the seven-ball duck.

English Test captain Joe Root handled that early tensed situation with Ollie Pope, but the Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah dismissed Root (12) just after the 50 runs partnership for the fourth wicket with Pope. Pope (46*) and wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler (15*) remained not out at the stumps of the day while they have already set up the 30-run partnership for the unbroken fifth wicket.

Australia Vs Pakistan 2019/20: Second T20I – Match Preview, Stats Preview, Where To Watch

Australia will play the second T20I of the three-match home T20I series against the visiting team Pakistan on Tuesday (5th November) at Manuka Oval (Canberra). It will be a night contest.

They played the series opener on last Sunday (3rd November) at Sydney Cricket Ground (Sydney). The rain interruption forced that game to end without a result. After Pakistan scored 107/5 (15 overs), Australia got the revised target of 119 runs. Before the final rain interruption that washed out that game, Australia managed to score 41/0 in 3.1 overs.

Australian players weren’t happy after the rain denied their deserving victory. They haven’t lost a T20I this year as Australia have won their last five T20Is before the latest no result.

The top-order batsmen David Warner, Aaron Finch and Steven Smith are in great form. In the last four T20I innings, Warner didn’t lose his wicket.

Meanwhile, the Australian bowlers are also in very good form. In overall, this Australian team is a very balanced side, despite Glenn Maxwell is not in this squad.

Pakistan players are not justifying the top-most position in T20I cricket

The no.1-ranked T20I side Pakistan are currently struggling in this format. Before the lucky no result in Sydney T20I, Pakistan suffered four consecutive defeats, including three against inexperienced Sri Lanka at home in last month.

The Pakistan players are not in the good form at present. Meanwhile, it is the first series as a captain for the no.1-ranked T20I batsman Babar Azam.

Though the Pakistan bowling line-up is full of talent, most of the bowlers are currently not consistent in international cricket. Moreover, the Pakistan batting is far away from dependable. Pakistan is also missing some good experienced T20I players in this series.

Stats Preview:

Australia

i) Australian captain Aaron Finch (925 runs) is 75 runs away to complete his 1,000 T20I runs as a captain. He will be first Australian captain and fifth overall captain to score 1,000 T20I runs.

ii) Leg-spinner Adam Zampa (14 wickets) needs to pick up three more T20I wickets at home to become the most T20I wicket-taker at home as an Australian bowler. While Zampa has taken the equal number of wickets of the pacer Andrew Tye (14 T20I wickets at home), only the left-arm pacer James Faulkner is ahead of them in this list.

iii) Left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc has taken 37 T20I wickets. At present, Starc is the joint third most T20I wicket-taker for Australia as the right-arm pacer Andrew Tye also scalped 37 T20I wickets. Starc is two wickets away to become the second most T20I wicket-taker for Australia. By taking two T20I wickets, Starc will surpass the present second most T20I wicket-taker for Australia – Mitchell Johnson (38 T20I wickets). However, Shane Watson is on the top of this list with 48 T20I wickets.

Watch: Shadab Khan’s Funny Answer To The Journalist When Asked Whether He Is Missing His Friend Hasan Ali

Pakistan is ready to fight with Sri Lanka in their home ground. After 2009, Sri Lanka is playing a full bilateral series in Pakistan soil. This is the special series for both the teams. Before the second ODI, Shadab Khan addressed the press conference where he gave the hilarious reply to the journalist.

A special series for Pakistan because they are playing the bilateral series after many years. It is also a significant series as this is the first assignment for the newly appointed Pakistan Head Coach. Misbah ul Haq, the head coach and chief selector, with bowling coach Waqar Younis are assuring that Pakistan dominates the series. It will be interesting to see the team’s performance.

While addressing media before the match, Shadab Khan gave a funny answer when he was asked if he was missing Hasan Ali. The pacer Hasan Ali is suffering from back spasm and has been given rest for the series. Shadab with the witty reply also remarked that the whole team is missing the pacer.

“How are you feeling without your friend Hassan Ali? Are you missing him?” a reporter asked.

“We are friends but you are making it sound like we are husband and wife,” Shadab Khan gave a hilarious reply leaving the entire room in splits.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka team, with the ODI captain Lahiru Thirimanne and T20I captain Dasun Shanaka, is ready to give a tough fight to the host. Because of the security issue, several Sri Lankan cricketers have not participated in this tour. The visitors are also scheduled with the three-match T20I series from 5th October.

Watch: Chris Gayle Smashes 32 Runs In Shadab Khan’s One Over

On last Friday (2nd August), Chris Gayle played a heroic match-winning innings in the Global T20 Canada 2019. In one over, Gayle smashed 32 runs to the Pakistan leg-spinner, Shadab Khan.

It was the match between the defending champions Vancouver Knights and Edmonton Royals. Chasing down the 166 runs target, the in-form Knights captain Chris Gayle played a smashing knock of 94 runs off 44 balls to secure a comfortable victory. Gayle was on the verge of back-to-back two T20 centuries but just failed to claim that.

While Gayle was totally in an aggressive mood, he expressed the cruelty in the 13th over when Shadab Khan came to bowl. Gayle hit boundaries in every delivery of that over as the left-handed batsman smashed 6-6-4-4-6-6. The clueless Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab Khan conceded 32 runs in that over.

Before that over, Vancouver Knights needed to score 59 runs in last eight overs to win that match. Due to that blasting over, Knights quickly chased down that target in 16.3 overs after losing four wickets.

However, Gayle just failed to complete his century as he was caught out at deep square-leg in the 14th over. In that 94-run innings, the left-handed batsman hit six fours and nine sixes. Undoubtedly, Gayle won the Player of the Match award for his brilliant batting performance.

Meanwhile, in that match, Shadab Khan had the bowling figures of 4-0-66-0.

Chris Gayle scored 122* in the previous match

In the previous game, the Knights captain Gayle hit a century against Montreal Tigers. After they were sent to bat first, Knights managed a giant total of 276/3 (20 overs). Gayle batted outstandingly and scored an unbeaten 122-run off 54 balls with seven fours and 12 sixes. Unfortunately, that match had no result as rain-interruption completely denied Tigers’ innings.

Gayle is currently the leading run-scorer in the Global T20 Canada 2019 where he has scored 279 runs in four innings with an average of 91.00. He has scored 12, 45, 122* and 94 runs in this tournament.

Global T20 Canada: Yuvraj Singh Stuns Pakistan’s Shadab Khan With A Flat Six, Indian Fans Enjoys In The Stands

Perhaps, Yuvraj Singh hitting those clean sixes would be one of the most pleasing sights for the cricket fanatics across the world. He got the knack of smashing the balls pretty cleanly all over the park with his beautiful postures. Yuvraj Singh displayed similar thing in the Global T20 Canda, where he smashes Pakistan’s Shadab Khan to one of the flattest sixes in the universe.

It was in the 9th over of the game when Yuvraj Singh smashed Shadab Khan to a flat-six. Khan bowled a gentle full toss outside the off-stump. The southpaw is quick in getting underneath it and in a trademark style of his own, just flicked it between the long-on and mid-wicket area to collect six runs.

Yuvraj Singh scored 35 runs off 21 balls:

Shadab Khan was surprised to see the ball crossing the boundary. Meanwhile, the Indian fans in the stands went crazy, as it was a treat to watch Yuvraj Singh when he is in full flow. That was the second six of Shadab Khan, as he already smashed him for a straight six in the previous over of his spell.

Earlier in the day, Faf du Plessis led Edmonton Royals in the absence of Kane Williamson. The South Africa skipper hit a quickfire 28 and the likes of Ben Cutting (43 from 24), James Neesham (20 from 12) and Shadab Khan (36 from 17) chipped in to help the Royals post 191 for 6 in 19 overs.

In reply, Yuvraj Singh came up with much-improved effort in Toronto Nationals’ second match at Brampton. The left-handed batsman smashed 3 sixes and as many boundaries in his 21-ball 35 that helped the Nationals successfully complete a 192-run chase in the T20 game at the CAA Center.

Fast bowler Manpreet Gony emerged as the unlikely hero for Toronto Nationals as he hit 33 from just 12 deliveries to help them win a thriller. Tail-enders Mark Montfort and Salman Nazar chipped in with handy contributions as the duo remained unbeaten as Toronto Nationals won with 13 balls to spare.

Players’ stats

India

i) Virat Kohli (10,943 runs) needs to score 57 more runs to complete his 11,000 ODI runs. He will be the third Indian batsman, after Sachin Tendulkar (18,426 runs) and Sourav Ganguly (11,363 runs), to score 11,000 ODI runs. While eight batsmen have scored 11,000 ODI runs, Kohli has a great chance to become the fastest cricketer to score 11,000 ODI runs. Sachin Tendulkar is currently holding the record of fastest 11,000 ODI runs as he achieved this feat in 276 ODI innings. Meanwhile, Kohli has played only 221 ODI innings.
