Mustafizur’s much awaited Sussex campaign halted again

Sussex county who had to wait long to avail the services of the Bangaldeshi youngster. He came to Hove and played in two games picking 4 wickets on his debut and returning empty handed in the next. But injured himself making him unavailable. The shoulder injury has again ruled him out of the remainder of Sussex’s group phase matches in the ongoing Royal London One-Day Cup and NatWest T20 Blast. But it is yet to be known if he will go back to Dhaka. Mustafizur’s much awaited Sussex campaign halted again!

The 20 yr old has been in the International circuit for just 1 yr but has already made name for himself as one of the best fast bowlers in Cricket currently atleast in the shorter formats with his canny variations and slower balls. Although he has never been out of form since debut, injuries have been part of his journey.

The Fizz could not take part in the inaugural Pakistan Super League earlier this year due to a shoulder injury he suffered during a Twenty 20 International encounter against Zimbabwe. He then had to sit out mid-way through the 2016 Asia Cup in February with a side strain, followed by injuries to his right hamstring and ankle, the rehabilitation of which nearly kept him out of the Sussex stint. It was said that during his debut season with SRH in IPL he felt he needs some rest.

“The 20-year-old is suffering from a shoulder injury, and, under the direction of the Bangladesh Cricket Board, is due to have a scan this week to ascertain whether or not he will be fit enough to play in any knockout matches should Sussex qualify for the latter stages of either competition,” Sussex County Cricket club said in a statement on Wednesday (July 27).

“The ICC Cricket Hall of Fame recognises some of the truly great players from cricket’s long and illustrious history, and this year’s inductees thoroughly deserve to be in this highly prestigious group,” said David Richardson, the ICC chief executive. “Muralitharan has been one of the greats of the modern era. His guile and consistency over the years helped Sri Lanka develop as a very competitive side in both Tests and ODI cricket.

Muttiah Muralitharan has played 133 Test matches picking up 800 wickets in the longest format is also the highest wicket taker in Cricket. His bowling average of 22.72 was bettered by only few players in the Test cricket. Murali also had 534 ODI wicket’s to his name.

Umar Akmal ends Sammy show at Darren Sammy Stadium

Two time World Cup winning Captain of the Caribbean Darren Sammy has been honored by naming the stadium in  St Lucia Zouks as the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet. And since the start of the home leg of CPL T20, Sammy captaining the Zouks team has been on song by leading from the front to hand his team 3 consecutive wins. Fans were expecting one more win to make 4 in a row but it finally came to a halt after Umar Akmal on Tuesday (July 26), hammered an unbeaten 35-ball 73. He has not had a great run in the first seven matches for Trinbago Knight Riders but helped his team to chase  down 168 with three wickets in hand and an over to spare. With this win, Knight Riders jumped to the third spot from fifth just ahead of the hosts. Umar Akmal ends Sammy show at Darren Sammy Stadium!

Zouks captain Darren Sammy did played good hand in this match too striking the ball twice the rate for his 37* but no other batsman score more than that as the team finished on 167 after the 20 overs.  At once Dwayne Bravo’s decision to bowl first seemed to have backfired when Johnson Charles (27) and Andre Fletcher (25) flayed the bowlers to score 60 runs in the 7.2 overs. However, West Indian star all rounder took the ball in his hand to control the game. Although most of their batsman got starts none of them went on to score big. The Zouks captain slammed an unbeaten 18-ball 37 to take the team past the 160-run mark.

The Trinbago Knight Riders did not had a great start to the chase as their Star opener B McCullum continued to misfire as he was dismissed for mere 2 runs. The other Kiwi star C Munro who has been the batting stay for his team started in a positive note but was cut down by a direct hit by Sammay.

From 30 for 1, Knight Riders had seen down fall to reach 41 for 4 and were starring at defeat. Loss in this match could have ditched their chances of making the next round. But the Pakistani batsman had other plans as Akmal started the resurrection act with Anton Devcich first and added 51 runs for the sixth wicket. In the end it was Sunil Narine’s little cameo of 17 off 12 balls that kept the visitors in the hunt before Akmal finished it off with a dash of panache.

Brief scores: St Lucia Zouks 167/6 (Darren Sammy 37*) lost to Trinbago Knight Riders 168/7 (Umar Akmal 73*; Delorn Johnson 3-22) by three wickets.

Senior Cricketers should promote Test Cricket: Steve Waugh

Senior Cricketers should promote Test Cricket: Steve Waugh

Australian Legendary Cricketer and former captain Steve Waugh, said senior cricketers should promote Test cricket in their respective countries as the lure of shortest format Twenty 20 is having great impact on the longest format. Senior Cricketers should promote Test Cricket: Steve Waugh

The Australian great who played 168 test matches with over 10 thousand runs and 50+ average feels this generation Cricketers are not leaving good motivation for the next generation cricketers to dream about playing the longest format of the game. Which every Cricketer should dream about playing for his/her country.

Steve cited the decline of Test Cricket in West Indies who once used to reign the whole Cricketing fraternity as an example.  West Indies are yet to win a test match against the top 4 nations playing the 5 day games but they are the World Champions in the T20 format.

He believes “The incentive to become great Test match cricketers is not as great as it is in Australia,We have to hope senior cricketers in each country keep promoting Test cricket.”

“Australian players still always talk about the baggy green cap and playing for their country and the responsibility rests with senior players in every country (to do the same.)”Waugh told News Ltd on Tuesday (July 26).

Senior Cricketers should promote Test Cricket: Steve Waugh         Although the whole blame can not put on the Players in the Caribbean as the WICB is found to be having disputes with the players for sometime now. The board stated that only players who make themselves available for the domestic four-day competition can play in Test cricket for the national side. But their domestic season clashes with the several T20 tournaments around the world, players are forced to make a choice, rendering them ineligible if they pick the latter.

This generation greats of the Caribbean like Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo opted to take part in the T20 tournaments around the globe than the 5 day game cause of the lucrative offers and the disputes with the board which can be detrimental for the future generations that idolise them growing up, who might eventually prefer following the footsteps of their heroes.

“There is a danger there because obviously the Windies are fantastic at T20 and young kids see that. They see they can make a lot of money. The West Indies got into a bit of trouble when Chris Gayle, who was a great Test player, said his priority was T20, then other senior players say the same thing, young kids hear it and all of a sudden the focus is on T20” Waugh said.
