Create 2 teams full of keepers.But the keepers should be playing at present?
1. Brad Haddin
2. Mark Boucher
3. AB de Villiers
4. Andrew Hall
5. Thami Tsolikele
6. Brendon McCullum
7. Lou Vincent
8. Gareth Hopkins
9. Chris Nevin (who remembers him?)
11. Carlton Baugh
12th Man: Patrick Browne
1. James Foster
2. Geraint Jones
3. Matt Prior
4. Phil Mustard
5. Tim Ambrose
6. Chris Read
7. Paul Nixon (see, almost a team full of English keepers)
8. Dinesh Karthik
9. Mahendra Singh Dhoni
11. Kamran Akmal
12th Man: Safraz Ahmed
Team 3: (we can have a triangular series)
1. Kumar Sangakkara
2. Prasanna Jayawardene
3. Adam Parore (he's returned for the IPL)
4. Matthew Sinclair (occasional keeper)
5. Marcus Trescothick (same as above)
6. Khaled Mashud (still active, selectors don't care)
7. Mushfiqur Rahim
8. Dhiman Ghosh (new kid on the block)
9. Tatenda Taibu
11. Kennedy Otieno
12 th Man: David Obuya/Niall O'Brien
In a Test match between Team 1 and any of the others, Team 1 would win (too many English in team 2, too many part-timers in team 3). Between Team 2 and 3, I fancy team 2 on the back of the performances of MS Dhoni and Kamran Akmal.
Rashid Latif Launches Karachi Champions League ,Your Comments?
i find it most encouraging that this league will grow organically relying on already very historical cricket teams from the karachi area. The money and exposure available may improve grass root level cricket standard in pakistan which could be a good thing, if not for batting or bowling much (since its t20), fielding should improve.
The idea of this league extending to further parts of the country is great too as Lahore has many historic clubs as well.
It will also give a huge number of Karachi based cricketers national exposure. As long as it is run efficiently and is competitive i think this could be a huge success.
Rashid does a lot for Pakistani cricket, and it would be nice if his venture could give him some material returns too.
Pakistan drop ICL players from World Twenty20 list?
It's a sensible if spineless and decision.
The first Question is Why did they pick them in the 1st place?. Did they forget these players turned there back on Cricket for money? Did they forget that the BCCI and the ICC would strongly be against the inclusion of these players?
The second Question is Why did the PCB take the players out? What was the point in picking them in the 1st place? If the PCB felt strongly enough to pick them in the original squad then they should stand with there decision instead of quickly abandoning it.
Yes Pakistan can't afford to make more enemies and dropping the players saves them from that!
And the ICL players don't deserve to play! they turned there back on Cricket for money!
