Asia Cup 2018: Rashid Breaks Down After Loss, Malik Consoles Him Post Victory

Asia Cup 2018 Super Four: Pakistan beat Afghanistan in a last-over thriller in the Super Four game, but what followed next was what won hearts of both nations. Young Rashid Khan was in tears after the three-wicket loss, literally.

That is when Pakistan’s hero of the night came to him and put his hand around the youngster to calm him down. It was a heartbreak for Afghan fans as they came really close and gave Pakistan a run for their money in the ongoing Asia Cup.

Just a day ago, Rashid Khan turned 20 and in the match against Bangladesh, he bagged the Man of the Match, not for his bowling, but for his batting. He scored a quickfire 50+.

It was good to see Malik showing maturity and experience in walking up to the young lad and console him.

Earlier, it was experienced Shoaib Malik, who conjured up a crucial unbeaten 51 under pressure as Pakistan survived a scare from Afghanistan, winning their Super Four match of the Asia Cup by three wickets on Friday. Chasing a competitive 258 to win, Pakistan overhauled the target with just three balls to spare with former captain Malik playing the match-winning knock from 43 balls.

Pakistan required 10 runs from the last over and Malik dispatched pacer Aftab Alam for a six and four after playing a dot ball. Wickets kept falling for Pakistan with star Afghan spinner Rashid Khan yet again proving his utility with a three-wicket haul but Malik held his nerves to keep one end tight.

Twitter hails Manish Pandey For Astonishing Catch To Dismiss Sarfraz Ahmed

Manish Pandey took a spectacular catch at the long-on boundary to send Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed packing.

Manish Pandey took a superb catch to send back Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed in the match in Asia Cup 2018 on Wednesday. Pandey had come on the field after Hardik Pandya suffered a back injury.

Pakistan were desperate need of a long partnership after losing their third wicket. However, they didn’t have a good run rate.

Cricketers, experts and fans were in awe of Manish Pandey’s super catch.

 

The India vs Pakistan encounter proved to be anti-climax after all the hype created before the Asia Cup clash. India were just too good on the day and didn’t give Pakistan even a sniff.

Despite winning the toss and electing to bat, Pakistan were under the pump straightaway.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar struck in the second over to first remove Imam-ul-Haq and then again in the fifth over to end Fakhar Zaman’s stay as Pakistan fell to 3 for 2. Babar Azam and Shoaib Malik provided brief hope to the Pakistanis but Kuldeep Yadav quickly gave India back the advantage with a brilliant googly that sent Babar Azam packing.

Asia Cup 2018: India Are Better Side Even Without Virat Kohli, Says Sarfaraz Ahmed

Defending champions India will be up against arch-rivals Pakistan in their second match of the Asia Cup on September 19 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

Defending champions India will be up against arch-rivals Pakistan in their second match of the Asia Cup on September 19 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai. In the absence of regular captain Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma will be leading the side in the tournament. Virat Kohli has been rested for the competition to help his aching back after a gruelling tour of England. But Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed refused to accept Virat Kohli’s absence will make much difference.

“No doubt he (Kohli) is their captain and a world-class batsman but I think they (India) have a good team even without Kohli,” Sarfraz told media on Monday, a day after his team thumped qualifiers Hong Kong in their first match of the tournament.

“They have good players who have done well for India. So I don’t think it will make much difference to India. Their batting is very strong so I can say that it will be a good match,” the Pakistan captain said.

Sarfraz Ahmed, who led Pakistan in that memorable Champions Trophy triumph, denied that his team will have a psychological advantage.

“We will not take that Champions Trophy win in our minds,” Sarfraz said.

“That was a different atmosphere (in London) and conditions. It was a year ago so that’s history so we will enter the ground with a new strategy and passion,” he said.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly also predicted that the high-voltage Asia Cup clash between India and Pakistan would be an even contest.

“It will be a 50-50 contest between India and Pakistan,” Ganguly said on the sidelines of a promotional event.

Asked if regular captain Kohli’s absence would be a factor, Ganguly said, “Virat Kohli’s absence won’t be a factor, they are a better side.”

India are the most successful side in the Asia Cup, having won the title a total of six times, while Pakistan have won twice.

Recounting his journey of 22 years from a cricketer to a politician, Khan asserted that no military dictator nurtured him and he has reached this height with his own struggle and accord.

India, Pak Would Have United Today, If Nehru Had Not Been Self-Centered: Dalai Lama

India and Pakistan would have been remained united as a nation today, had India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru not been “self-centred”, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama said on Wednesday, adding that while Pandit
Nehru was gifted with experience, mistakes do occur.

Mahatma Gandhi wanted to give the prime ministership to (Mohammad Ali) Jinnah. But Nehru refused. He was self-centred. He said, I wanted to be Prime Minister. India and Pakistan would have been united (had Jinnah been
made Prime Minister at the time). Pandit Nehru is very experienced. But mistakes do happen, the Dalai Lama said in response to a question from a student during an interaction held at the Goa Institute of Managament in North Goa near Panaji.

The Dalai Lama gave the Nehru analogy, in response to a question from a student who sought to know from the Tibetan leader, about how one can be sure-footed about one decisions and how to avoid committing mistakes in life.

The Dalai Lama was a key note speaker on the subject. Today’s Relevance of India Ancient Knowledge organised as part of the celebrations hosted by the Goa Institute of Management, which is completing 25 years of its existence.

Preceding the interaction, the Dalai Lama spoke extensively on India’s ability to merge its rich traditional knowledge with modern facets of education.

India has a culture deeply rooted in tradition and knowledge. The land of ahimsa is a cauldron of traditional knowledge includes the art of meditation, compassion, secularism and more the Dalai Lama said.

While acknowledging that the British sowed the seeds of the modern style of education as we know it today, he remarked that India is probably the only country which can find the right balance between its traditional knowledge and modern education.
