ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Cricket goes on in London attack’s shadow, but some fear fallout

Faraz had strict orders to his son when he learned of his visit to a mosque near the London Bridge on Saturday. “Put on the Peshawari suit I bought you, but avoid taqiyah (cap). Why draw unnecessary attention,” said his son security manager of Afghanistan at one of the Edgbaston gates. A day later, while the rest of England mourns the dead in the attack, Faraz is relieved that his son was safe.
While observing followers of India and Pakistan who go to the stadium with the horn, and dhols and various other objects, Faraz says that things are going to be much more difficult for British Asians in their land of adoption. It is said that it will be ready to be examined and treated differently, if not with a pinch of suspicion.
“I went to Afghanistan in Afghanistan for seven days, then I went to Pakistan for five days, and when I returned, I was detained and interrogated, despite my passport showing that I have lived here since 1992.” He said. The fact that he changed his plans at the last minute and returned two days later than expected does not help.
“There are certain areas in the country where, and that is why I mean Afghan and Pakistani people, we have a race for abuse, for them we are all” Pakis. “When there is a terrorist attack like -ci, If you are Indian, raise suspicions, “he adds.
Daughter of Faraz is a field investigator whose job is to collect forensic data and deal with murderers and thugs. But when he wanted to send money during his visit to Pakistan, he was asked not to. “His statements are scanned routinely because of his background and he was concerned that any transaction from South Asia could lead to an interrogation,” he said.
British asians constitute a large part of the population of England. And while Faraz paints a rather serious picture, not everyone with a subcontinent line accepts terrorist incidents such as the attack in London affect it that way.
“This is to think positively.If you think you will be seen in another way, you will be.I was born and raised here I am, and I will not say that people judge me by the color of my skin or where my ancestors come from “Said a fan from Pakistan.
Sitting next to him, there are some Indian fans who expect the national anthem at the beginning. They make fun of the idea of ​​being identified. “How do you care how we see each other. We want English like the rest of them,” one said.
It is not surprising that the security measures of the Champions Trophy eight teams have increased considerably. According to the Cricket International Council, following the London bombings, all three of the team’s hotel sites were blocked because the cricket’s governing body has promised to review its security “in line with threat levels.”

“After the incident last night, all team hotels have been blocked and teams, officials and staff have been approached swiftly. Greater security around the places implemented after the Manchester attack remains in place , Which includes a significant source and increased security for today’s meeting, “the ICC said. Therefore, in Edgbaston, all who enter the stadium were explored more closely. Even the acting secretary of the BCCI, Amitabh Choudhary, was detained outside and needed someone to talk to security officials to let him through.

Agent Evans, one of the many policemen stationed at the doors, insists he does not judge suspicious activity based on the appearance of a person. He then tells an earlier incident in the morning, when he had to follow a person who refused entry to the plant and was seen running. “He says he’s a doctor and he had a syringe in his bag.When we told him he would not be allowed, he started walking quickly.I followed him … I was stuck in the corner and it turned out he was a doctor.He was the man Suspicious that we find ourselves today, “he said, adding after a brief pause,” and he was white. “

Australia, Bangladesh face off in must-win affair

Australia, Bangladesh face off in must-win affair


Australia, Bangladesh face off in must-win affair

Events on and around the London Bridge on Saturday night did not affect the Champions Trophy, despite the fact that the oval is 4 km away. Australia and Bangladesh have formed both Sunday before their Group A meeting Monday 5 June, both teams claiming they are comfortable with the current safety devices. However, the incident should suspend the game.

In fact, it is a need agreement for both teams. While Australia has escaped their encounter with New Zealand with a point after the rain has resisted them, the defeat against Bangladesh leave their country in a precarious situation. And having lost their first game of England, Bangladesh need four points in their two matches. It was only the fifth day of the tournament, but there are no mistakes.

For all the improvements in Bangladesh in the last three years, Australia is the natural favorite for this game. And yet there could be two leveling factors.

First, the game will play in the same field that was used in South Africa’s victory over Sri Lanka on Saturday. It was not the sort of hype paradise in which Bangladesh pitchers fought against England, and after further drying, assistance should be provided to slower players and spinners. Australia is not known for its ability to calm down its instincts by attacking in such situations and was discovered more than once.

Second, rain must occur at night, which could make launching a key factor. If Bangladesh can take advantage of this situation and preferable conditions, they could close the gap between the two teams and create the kind of memorable victory as captain Mashrafe Mortaza was in Cardiff in 2005.

Before they can do it, they will find a better balance on their side – in the opening tournament on Thursday, their fifth-off injured while England left the game.

When: June 5, 2017 at 1:30 pm local time; 18:00 IST

Where: The Oval, London

What to expect: in South Africa’s victory Sri Lanka in the advanced tests Saturday were appeared within the opening 10 of the game and the general consensus was that 280 was probably a perfect score. The same step will be used for this game, so it should be even drier and slower. Both teams would do well to learn from the way South Africa has evaluated conditions and adapted. Meanwhile, time is a big concern – It is expected that afternoon showers and seem to affect the second half of the game.

News of the teams:

Australia: Steven Smith side probably should find a way to follow Adam Zampa on the side, with places John Hastings and Pat Cummins on the under pressure side. Otherwise, it is unlikely that there will be changes, hoping Smith will improve the performance of an opening game in which he admitted that they were “rusty.”

Probably XI: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Steven Smith (c), Moises Henriques, Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, Matthew Wade (without), Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood

Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza has given considerable attention to the composition of his side after the decision to exclude a special player for a hitter against England in the back. It seems likely that they see and present the additional spin-out expenses of Imrul Kayes and Sabbir Rahman Mehedi Hasan.

Probably XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Imrul Kayes / Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (without), Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mosaddek Hossain, Mehedi Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman

Statistics and facts:

– Australia and Bangladesh did not play in an ODI since April 2011. The World Cup match in 2015 was eliminated without a bullet being launched.

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: India's comfortable win a result of an archaic, insipid Pakistan show

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: India’s comfortable win a result of an archaic, insipid Pakistan show

They say the truth, there was little enthusiasm in the preparation of this game. According to the ICC presentation of the OIC, India ranked 3rd, while Pakistan lied to the eighth. On paper, too, the men in blue had the air superior to their rivals in all facets of the game. He was not the best threshing team against the best attack of the bowling confrontation. Instead, it was a meeting between the two parties at different ages. One was an evolved modern day that aimed to keep improving with more innovative ideas and the other was an aspect that was attacking its weaknesses and its response.
India was largely aided by a stray Pakistan in Edgbaston on Sunday. AFPIndia was largely aided by a stray Pakistan in Edgbaston on Sunday. AFP
Let me stress.

It was 40 of the first episodes of the second ODI between Pakistan and the West Indies in Guyana. Pakistan languished in 188/5. Babar Azam, perhaps the most reliable battery beat ODI Pakistan beat 76 bales of 102 balls. His role was to anchor the innings and, of course, was no more than a criminal success rates in modern cricket. Babar was accompanied by Imad Wasim. The Windies were all made earlier and ensured that the enforcement rate of the opposition was only 4.7. It was a perfect demonstration of Pakistan’s current situation in 50-over cricket.

However, the next 10 years have been surprisingly unusual according to their standards. The duo of Babar and Imad shifted gears and launched a successful attack on West Indies players. He scored 94 runs on 60 balls without losing a legitimate 282 win over the window. It was a total that drove the entire Pakistan team out of the locker and lead to their captain felt overwhelmed Sarfraz Ahmed who cheered enthusiastically. They were celebrating a goal of finishing the sleeves they had to solve before the game. But the problem is that teams like Australia, South Africa, India face and correct these problems in recent years.

At the same time, India increased the bar with each passing game. In Pune against England, they found themselves in a difficult 63/4 position and chased a total of 356 mammoths with 11 balls to spare. They repeated the same in the next game, being 25/3, they managed to reach 381 against the “most nested” of the 2015 Cricket World Cup.

However, an exaggerated game like India and Pakistan will be great at some point. The jokes on social networks, expert TVs or the same ones that have circulated have continued to pause and ultimately combine, the high rate finally interested me. But it lasted for all but one.

Mohammad Amir started general. He tilted fewer deliveries out of Rohit Sharma before bringing a couple back. She was a quality young lady and maybe the only time in Pakistan limits India in the game. Rohit was beaten three times, forced to abandon two solo bullets, while his willow bound the bullet once by an inner edge of the pads.

In the pre-match press conference, Pakistan captain Sarfraz mentioned that they had expected something out of reach against India. His captain after the first was a perpetual race to decode the new opportunities he was about to vomit.

Imad was awarded the second new ball and assigned a defensive role to keep the race under control against two late-growing hitters. It was a negative maneuver, there were no deliveries that Imad Curled (in his opening spell) were the assumption of the window, which instantly took the pressure on the Indian openers and allowed them to build a solid platform without risk. Even the odd edges induced Pakistan pitchers fell into safety due to poor classification of fields and sudden changes in lengths.
