Karachi: Lahore Qalandars have appointed pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi as the vice-captain for the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season six.
The 20-year-old Shaheen has been with the Qalandars since the third edition of the PSL and has emerged as the core member of the franchise.
Aaqib Javed, LQ’s director of Cricket said that Shaheen Shah Afridi is face of Lahore Qalandars. His dedication towards Qalandars’ mindset is remarkable.

Chennai: India captain Virat Kohli said Tuesday his side showed more “grit” and “determination” to thrash England in the second Test, playing down complaints about the difficult pitch.
With local hero Ravichandran Ashwin claiming eight wickets in the match and scoring 106 in the second innings, India completed a 317-run victory inside four days in Chennai.
Left-arm spinner Axar Patel claimed a five-wicket haul on his Test debut as England were out for 164 while chasing an unlikely 482 on day four.
Some said the Chennai pitch, which crumbled from nearly the first day, was not fit for a Test.
But England made no public complaint and Kohli rejected the criticism and said his side played a “perfect game”.
“I think our application with the bat was outstanding,” said the India captain.
“The conditions were challenging for both sides but we showed more application and grit and determination to battle it out.
“We didn’t panic out there looking at the hard turn and bounce on that pitch.”
Kohli highlighted that India scored 600 runs over two innings despite the conditions, and winning the toss made no difference.
“So if you put up that kind of batting performance and you string in those important batting partnerships then we know that our bowlers are going to do the job.”
England captain Joe Root conceded that his side were “outplayed in all three departments this week” and had to learn quickly before the third Test in Ahmedabad.
But he added: “I would say it was a challenging wicket. I do think that it was an important toss to win.”
England, he said, now have to be “honest” and learn quickly to adapt to conditions in India.
England, struggling since the opening day, kept losing wickets after resuming on 53-3 on day four.
Root departed for 33 soon after lunch, falling to Patel.
Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav joined in to finish off the innings, taking Moeen Ali after he smashed 43 off 18 balls.
The last wicket partnership of 38 between Ali and Stuart Broad, unbeaten on five, was England’s highest of the match.
England, who have been resting and rotating players, said Ali would be returning home after the Test.
Ali had coronavirus in Sri Lanka but recovered to take a total of eight wickets in the second Test against India.
Ashwin’s five wickets to help bowl out England for 134 in the first innings in response to India’s 329 set the tone for the host’s dominance.
England conceded a lead of 195 and then struggled on a pitch that offered turn from day one.
“This wicket was very different to the one we played on in the first game,” Ashwin conceded, but he added that the wickets had not fallen from the balls he expected.
“It was the mind of the batsmen that got us wickets.”
Opener Rohit Sharma hit an attacking 161 to set up India’s big innings after they won the toss and elected to bat first.
Sharma’s seventh Test century and his first against England raised the pitch of the returning Indian crowd — present in a stadium for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic.
Kohli made 62 in the second innings, putting on a key 96-run seventh-wicket partnership with Ashwin on day three.
Both sides need to win the series to take the second place in the World Test Championship final against New Zealand later this year.
The third Test — a day-night match — will begin in Ahmedabad on February 24.
Authorities have not said if fans will be allowed into the world’s biggest cricket stadium — with a 100,000-plus capacity — for the game.

Karachi: Pakistan captain Babar Azam, who represents Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), is fully confident of regaining his form in the upcoming season.
The 26-year-old Babar has been out of his groove after recovering from thumb injury which he sustained on the tour of New Zealand.
“We wait for the PSL every year and the tournament provides local to perform,” Babar said in a podcast released by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
“I am looking forward to recycle my bad form by identifying mistakes and not repeat them during the PSL,” he added.
Babar stressed that if local players will perform, it will help them to keep an eye for the future selection.
“PSL is a good opportunity for youngsters to prove themselves. When I started playing PSL, it helped me to interact with foreign players on how they think about the game and go through the bad phase,” he maintained.
“If they will do the same, it will help them to progress in their career,” he added.
Meanwhile, Babar revealed his appreciation for the PSL 6 anthem and said that it sounds good at a high volume.
Note, Babar was a player of the tournament in Karachi Kings’ winning run last year. He finished as the leading run-getter of the competition. In 11 innings, he accumulated 473 runs at an average of 59.12.

Karachi: Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Mohammad Rizwan grabbed a career-best 42nd place in the ICC Men’s T20I Batsmen Rankings.
The 28-year-old Rizwan led the batting charts in Pakistan South Africa T20I series at Gaddafi Stadium as he scored 197 runs with knocks of 104 not out, 51 and 42.

“The cricket committee will review the national team’s performance in the series against South Africa.

Meanwhile, Wasim announced the teams that will come to Pakistan and play Test cricket as part of ICC World Test Championship 2021-23.
“We have three away and three home series. Away tours included tours of West Indies, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh while England, New Zealand and Australia will play on Pakistan soil,” he added.
Wasim stressed the importance of winning ODI matches this year as they hold importance to secure automatic qualification for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.
“We are due to play nine ODI matches and they all in ICC World Cup Super League. Winning maximum matches would be the key,” he added.

Lahore: South Africa’s head coach Mark Boucher praised as ‘a fantastic place to play cricket’ after the three-match T20I series concluded here at Gaddafi Stadium.
It was South Africa’s first tour since 2007 and former wicketkeeper great was also part of that touring side.
“I think what we can learn is this is a fantastic place to play cricket. You see the history around the grounds and some of the fantastic talents that have come out of Pakistan,” Boucher said in a virtual presser.
Boucher also hailed Pakistan’s pitches and termed them as better conditions to play cricket compared to other sub-continent nations.
“The spin isn’t as bad as it is in India and Sri Lanka, there’s not as much turn, but there’s a special technique that you still have to apply, especially when you’re batting,” he added.
Boucher thinks that South Africa’s bowling department was standout for him. “I’m really proud of the way the guys bowled; the bowling was a standout for me. I think the guys have done well in this particular situation and it can only help them going back to South Africa,” he maintained.
