Mohammad Amir Credits Senior Teammate Shoaib Malik to help him in Tough Times

The young and fiery left-arm pacer Mohammad Amir has been in tremendous form after making a comeback to the Pakistan team serving a ban for five years. Notably, Amir was involved in a spot-fixing case in a match against England in 2010 along with his teammate Salman Butt and Mohammad Asif. However, Amir credited his senior teammate Shoaib Malik for helping him during the tough times.

Amir has been instrumental in Pakistan’s Champions Trophy victory by beating the defending champions India in the finals earlier this year. Amir removed the top order in the form of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli, who has been scoring the bulk of runs for India in that tournament in quick succession. Recently, Amir revealed he had a specific plan for Virat Kohli and the importance that wicket holds.

After Amir made his comeback, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) appointed the senior pro, Malik to guide the troubled pacer. Talking about the relationship he shared with his mentor and teammate, the 25-year-old Amir remarked:

“You already know if there’s one man within the current Pakistan groups that I wish to take a look at and comply with, it’s Shoaib Bhai. I take a look at him and his character. He’s well-groomed, well-spoken now. He is aware of how you can communicate to juniors and seniors. He’s the one man who you can take a look at and wish to go on that path.”

The left-arm quickie further stated the comradeship that the current players in the Pakistan squad enjoy. He mentioned that the likes of Imad Wasim, Umar Amin, Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz and Amir himself have been playing together since the u-19 days.

“To be trustworthy, it has been superb and a really relaxed ambiance. We’re all fairly younger within the aspect and we’ve performed with one another at age ranges,” Amir signed off.

The fifth edition of Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) re-starts its journey on November 17, Friday. The tournament will kick off with the home team Sylhet Sixers engaging themselves in a high voltage encounter against the defending Champions, Dhaka Dynamites.

Pakistani heavyweight Shoaib Malik will don the jersey of the Comilla Victorians in the T20 fiesta and is already heading towards Bangladesh. The elegant stroke player took to micro-blogging site Twitter to express his happiness on the same. The right-handed batsman seemed to be thrilled before the opening day and mentioned that he is looking forward to representing his country and make them proud in the land of the Tigers.

His tweet read “Off to our neighbour’s to represent my nation #PakistanZindabad“.

Malik will join forces with some of the big names from all around the globe in the Comilla Victorians camp. The West Indian duo of Marlon Samuels and Darren Bravo will work as a boost for the team keeping in mind the exceptional capabilities of the Caribbeans when it comes to the 20-over format. Bangladeshi opener Tamim Iqbal has been in exquisite form in the past one year, and we saw a glimpse of the same in the ICC Champions Trophy earlier this year. Apart from Iqbal, the hard-hitting talent of Englishman Jos Buttler is something the Victorians will count on.

As far as the bowling line up is concerned, the Afghanistan duo of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi will be a lethal force for the team. The bowling pair gave us a hint of their magical talents in the lucrative Indian premier League which completed its iconic 10th edition this year. Last but not the least the presence of Hasan Ali in the Comilla team is just the icing on the cake.

Shoaib Malik Sends Birthday Wish To Sania Mirza On Twitter

Indian tennis star Sania Mirza has been one of the household names in the country for all the things she achieved for the country over the past decade.

The Hyderabadi girl has turned 31 on Wednesday and wishes have poured for her from all the Indian celebrities. However, her husband Shoaib Malik was one of the first persons to wish her on social media.

The Pakistani cricketer has taken his Twitter account to wish his spouse on her auspicious day. His tweet read: “Here’s to wishing my beautiful wife a magical birthday. Missing you

Sania is enduring a tough year in her career. Having reached world No.1 ranking in doubles last season, she has found it hard to keep going this season, majorly due to the injuries to herself and her partners.

The 31-year old is set to finish the year as No.9 in WTA doubles rankings. She is currently taking rest to recover from the knee injury she suffered and has expressed her delight to finish in Top 10 despite missing the action in recent times. She will take a call on whether to take a surgery or not on her knee in the coming days.

“It was tough year with partners getting injured, but I have a bit of a knee injury now. I have been off for about a month. I have couple of weeks to rest, just trying to get used to, I have to see if I need to have a surgery or not. (I have) a little bit of problem,” Sania said on the sidelines of the Indian Sports Honours.

She added, “But all in all I still finished close to top 10, so I am happy with the year.”

The Indian ace star has managed to win only one title this year at Brisbane, a dull year compared to her high standards. She had finished runners-up in Miami Open, Sydney International and also reached finals in Australian Open mixed doubles.

Sania Mirza will hope to reach her previous best next season and will also be looking to get back to the No.1 position in WTA doubles rankings.

Sania Mirza Disappointed After Asking For A Bike Ride From Husband Shoaib Malik

Sania Mirza had quite a Sunday (October 29) to remember. With no tennis commitment, the multiple Grand Slam winner decided to spend her Sunday watching cricket, and she could not have asked for more.

Not only did she watch her country India putting up a brilliant performance to beat New Zealand in the third and final ODI in Kanpur, but she also enjoyed her husband Shoaib Malik’s stunning innings against Sri Lanka in the final T20 International in Lahore. And the tennis star made sure to make her presence felt on the social media as she posted series of tweets regarding the games.

She congratulated Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli for their stunning 200-plus run partnership and also praised Team India for the series-clinching win. However, the highlight of the day was her tweet for Shoaib Malik.

The right-handed batsman was adjudged both the Man of the Match and Match of the series for his brilliant performance in the three-match series, and as soon as he received the motorcycle as Man of the Series award, Sania jumped into action, asking her husband if she could ride pillion.

But before Malik could reply to her tweet, Sania saw another where the cricketer was riding the motorcycle with his teammate Shadab Khan sitting on the pillion.

Expressing her disappointment, she wrote: “Ok never mind.. I guess the seat is taken already ??‍♀️? @realshoaibmalik @76Shadabkhan ?.”

Meanwhile, Malik has expressed his desire of winning a World Cup after playing an integral role in the series victory over Sri Lanka. He scored 51 off just 24 balls as Pakistan thrashed the Islanders by 36 runs to seal the series 3-0.

PAK vs SL 3rd T20I: We Have Sent A Good Message Across The World: Shoaib Malik

After missing international cricket for almost a decade, the cricket-obsessed fans of Pakistan were served yet another masterclass by Sarfraz Ahmed & Co. in Lahore as Pakistan’s cricket team thrashed Sri Lanka by 36 runs to whitewash the Islanders in the three-match series.

Riding on veteran Shoaib Malik’s quickfire 51 off just 24 balls and another brilliant bowling display, Pakistan ensured that the fans return home with a smile on their pace as the country hosted a much-awaited international cricket fixture on home soil after being isolated by international teams since 2009 due to security risks. Batting first, the hosts put up a commanding 180 for 3 in the allotted 20 overs. In reply, the visitors could only manage 144 for 9.

The fans looked delighted and so were the players after playing in front of the home crowd. Speaking at the post-match press-conference, Malik, who even after having enough experience of playing in Pakistan, could not contain his excitement, as he said:

“When you play before [at] your own ground, when you enter the ground you feel too much happiness and you can’t describe that feeling.”

“I am blessed that my comeback also came here in Lahore. We have sent a good message across the world, the team which was attacked (came) and it’s a positive signal. The kind of hospitality they got was tremendous. Congratulations to the whole nation,” added Malik who was adjudged both the man of the match and man of the series.

The win, meanwhile, extended Pakistan’s impressive run in limited-overs cricket in the last few months. Following the historic triumph in the Champions Trophy, Pakistan defeated a World XI side in Lahore before blanking Sri Lanka in ODI’s as well as the recently-concluded T20I series.

Speaking about that, Malik said:

 “Consistency is the main thing. You select the right talent and then back them with consistent chances. The selection committee is giving consistent chances.

“Spots are not fixed in the eleven but the squad is more or less the same. This team has unity and the boys are doing well, they back each other and even lift the seniors as well,” he added.

The veteran batsman further insisted that he still has a lot of passion for donning the Pakistan jersey before expressing his desire to win a World Cup.

“That’s why I come to the ground every morning,” he said. “We don’t know about tomorrow but the goal is to win and a World Cup is missing from my honour. I don’t have words to show my desire but I request (you) to pray for me.”

PAK vs SL 2017: Kamran Akmal Calls Babar Azam his Favourite Player

Babar Azam has been a prolific run-scorer for the Pakistan team in the recent times and has been their middle-order mainstay.

Azam scored two consecutive centuries in the series and had 303 runs in four innings to his name. He has been a perfect resolution to Pakistan’s top order batting miseries and has helped the side in the recent run chases. Pakistan moved one step closer to a series whitewash against Sri Lanka, as they defeated them in a low scoring match.

Pakistan leads Sri Lanka 4-0 in the five-match ODI series, thanks to a brilliant partnership between Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam in the fourth ODI.

Pakistan had restricted Sri Lanka to a low total of 173 courtesy a three-wicket a haul by world’s number one bowler, Hasan Ali. Pakistan lost three early wickets in the form of Fakhar Zaman, Imamul Haq and Mohammad Hafeez. But the innings was then stabilised by Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam who were both unbeaten at 69.

This innings earned Azam praises from wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal, as he feels Azam has become everyone’s favourite. He feels Azam’s approach towards batting is “smart”, as he came back strongly with a low score in the third innings to guide his team to victory in the fourth ODI.

“Babar has always performed for the team and has been playing match-winning innings for the team in this ODI series; he scored runs when the team was in need. After scoring two centuries in the first two ODIs, he has become everyone’s favourite player in the series. You can see how good and smart Babar is after he came back from a 30-run innings in the third ODI and helped Pakistan win the fourth match with a stronger approach and a resolute presence on the pitch, Babar’s shot selection shows how confident he is and he will become one of the best batsmen for Pakistan.”

Akmal also feels that credit should also be given to Shoaib Malik for the recent success that the Pakistani team is enjoying. Malik has been playing the role of a finisher for the Pakistani team and has been quite successful in doing so. 

“Malik has experience, and he knows how to pace his innings. He stayed on the crease with Babar and scored runs for the team to win their fourth consecutive ODI,”   

during the first One Day International match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka at Dubai International Stadium on October 13, 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

PAK vs SL 2017, 1st ODI: Sarfraz Ahmed Lauds Batsmen after Pakistan Thrash Sri Lanka

Carrying on their stupendous vein on form in ODI’s since their historic triumph in the ICC Champions Trophy, Pakistan simply decimated Sri Lanka in Dubai.

The opening ODI of the series saw an emphatic batting performance from the men in green, as the change in formats did Sarfraz Ahmed’s side a world of good. Not too long ago, Pakistan got whitewashed in the Test series, but today, they brought their A game to the fore. It was primarily due to the brilliance of Babaz Azam and the evergreen Shoaib Malik.

While Azam was a sitting duck in whites, having his coloured clothes on, brought out the best in him. After the hosts lost a couple of early wickets, it was Azam who steadied the ship with a rock solid knock. Along with Mohammad Hafeez, Azam gave the team a steady foundation, and it was the destruction of Shoaib Malik towards the end which turned out to be decisive.

Opener Fakhar Zaman looked fluent for his knock of 43 before Akila Dananjaya castled him. Azam, however, carried on and got to the 6th ton of his career, playing just his 32nd ODI. He has been a rock for the team ever since he has got a chance.

Towards the end, however, Malik went berserk, as his 61 ball knock of 81 got Pakistan to a healthy total of 292-6. Defending wise, there weren’t any issues for the Pakistanis as the ever-reliable bowling came to the fore. Pacers Rumman Raees and Hasan Ali shared three wickets apiece, as the Sri Lankans surrendered.

Post the win; captain Sarfraz Ahmed was delighted, as he lauded the batsmen for a fine performance.

“I think credit to our batsmen; they batted brilliantly. Bowlers too did their job. We’ve got good variations in our bowling department. If we have runs on the board, we are confident that this bowling attack can defend well. There is a lot of quality in this side, and we are looking forward to the next game,” Ahmed said.

Malik was named the Man of the Match for his knock, and he too was quite delighted.

“I guess, in the middle overs, they were bowling well. I kept rotating strike, and that was my plan. Credit to Babar – the way he batted and also Hafeez. Bowlers then finished it up. Being an experienced player, it’s your responsibility to bat through the innings. My goal was to keep rotating singles, and I upped the ante towards the end,” said Malik.
