Sports Reporter, The Daily Star News

Four Bangladesh cricketers will represent Rest of the Asia against Pakistan in two limited-overs exhibition matches to be held in Jeddah.

Chief Bangladesh selector Faruque Ahmed informed that they have selected Shahriar Nafees as the organisers requested them to send an opener for the matches.

"Now Shahriar Nafees, Mohammad Rafique, Aftab Ahmed and Shahadat Hossain will represent Rest of the Asia," said Faruque yesterday.

Meanwhile, the matches, scheduled for May 18 and 19, have been deferred to May 25 and 26.

VVS Laxman, Anil Kumble, Gautam Gambhir and Ajay Jadeja have been included from India along with Sanath Jayasuriya, Romesh Kaluwitharana and Kumar Dharmasena from Sri Lanka.

Inzamamul Haq will lead a full-strength Pakistan team.

Considering current forms, Bashar should have been given the chance instead of Aftab.

Wondering who will be Rajib's opening partner, Jadeja? Aftab?

The two one-day international matches to be played between Pakistan XI and Asia XI in Jaddah, Saudi Arabia are just a money-making practice and nothing more. It has been learnt that neither Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) nor Saudi Arabia authorities are involved in the organisation of the matches.

Last year former captain Rashid Latif persuaded the Pakistan cricketers to play in Saudi Arabia, but when the national cricketers reached there the sponsors did not turn up and the matches were not held causing embarrassment for all those involved. “This time around some unknown persons are again planning a similar activity with no guarantee of organisation of the matches. And they are generating money from different quarters but holding of the matches is not yet confirmed,” sources said. PCB director cricket operations Salim Altaf has confirmed that Pakistan team will play matches in Saudi Arabia on May 18 and 19. “But the board has nothing to do with the games. The matches are unofficial,” maintained Salim. “Last year when Pakistan team went to Saudi Arabia, the public there had to bear one and a half million loss because the sponsors did not turn up. The authorities should take action to avoid embarrassment,” sources said.

4 openers: Gambhir, Jayasuriya, SN and Kallu
1 onedown batsman: Laxman
2 middle orders: Aftab, Jadeja
3 spinners: Rafique, Kumble, Dharmasena
and a single paceman: Rajiv

From the grapevine I have heard Kumble and Rafique to open our bowling attack. The out field is full of dust as well (just imagine what the wicket looks like). With Rajib and Jadeja closing it. Also there are always less chances with 10 asians heads quarreling than 11 (dumb-heads). The more heads you bring in the worse it gets. The Pakis may sit Allur dom on the side because the heat in the dessert would get pretty high in the middle of day.

Today's Janakantha gave the following teams-

Asian XI: Shahadat, Rafique, SN, Aftab (BD), Laxman, Gambhir, Kumble, Jadeja, Jaffer, Venkatapathy Raju (Ind), Jaya, Kallu, Dharmasena, and Fernando (SL).

Pak XI: Inzy, Yousuf, Younus, Akmal, Kaneria, Sami, Arshad, Umar Gul, Farhat, Butt, Nayem Ahmed, and Abdur Rahman.

This is not really full strength Pakistan as they are missing Rana Naved, Asif, Afridi (county commitments), Razzaq, Shoaib Malik, and Akter (injuries).

From CI (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/pakistan/content/story/248145.html)

The matches will be played at the Al-Ahli stadium in Jeddah on artificial turf, and officials expect both to be fully sold out. Supported by the Saudi Cricket Centre, formed by expatriates from Pakistan and India, it is hoped that the event will convince the government and locals that interest in the sport is growing in the region.

Pakistan XI: Inzamam-ul Haq (capt), Imran Farhat, Salman Butt, Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf, Abdul Razzaq, Kamran Akmal (wk), Arshad Khan, Mohammad Sami, Umar Gul, Danish Kaneria

Asian XI: VVS Laxman (capt), Gautum Gambhir, Ajay Jadeja, Shahadat Hossain, Venkatapathy Raju, Wasim Jaffer, Shahriar Nafees, Roshan Mahanama, Romesh Kaluwitharana (wk), Kumar Dharmasena, Dilhara Fernando, Mohammad Rafique, Aftab Ahmed

My Comments: Roshan Mahanama !!! What's wrong with Duleep Mendis ?

Also, what happened to Kumble ?

My team would be-

Jaffer
Gambhir
Laxman
Shahriar
Aftab
Jadeja
Kallu

Shahadat

THE pitch is getting final shape at the Al-Ahli Stadium where Pakistan XI and Asia XI will be locking horns in the first-ever international cricket match in the Kingdom.
The star-studded Pakistan team, led by Inzamamul Haq, is scheduled to arrive in Jeddah Tuesday night. Asia XI which has five players from India, four each from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh are scheduled to arrive on Wednesday morning. VVS Laxman from India will lead the Asia XI. Preparations are going in full swing past midnight everyday at the venue. The special astro-turf wicket, which was imported from England, will be laid on the specially prepared cement slabs.
The foundation work of the pitch is completed and the sight-screens are fixed in place.
“We are putting all our efforts in converting the whole football ground into a cricket ground. Since it is a football ground we have certain limitations regarding the specifications to convert it into a full-fledged cricket ground,” said the overall stadium in charge Engr. Mohammad Wajid Ishaq, elder brother of India’s famous Test player Arshad Ayub.
However, with adding the area of the athletic track around the football ground to the main football pitch, it could be about 95 percentage of a cricket ground.
“Since the players know the importance of popularizing the game in Saudi Arabia they won’t mind that,” hopes Ishaq. He feels whatever the limitations they face it is great thing that international cricketers play in Saudi Arabia for the first time.
The organizers have been trying to get permission to set up a family enclosure in the stadium but still they could not manage it. The preparation of the pitch is supervised by astro-turf specialist K. John Manoj, who was brought in here by Saudi Cricket Center, which is organizing this two-day day and night matches.
“For me it is quite good to see Saudi and Asian community members working hard to promote cultural and sport activities in the Kingdom,” said Manoj who is a Committee Member of Hyderabad Cricket Association in India. The matches will be played on Thursday and Friday from 3.00 P.M. – Additional inputs from Sabahat Siddiqui.

JEDDAH
EXCITEMENT is mounting in the expatriate community as only one more day remains until the one-day cricket matches at Al Ahli Stadium, organized by Saudi Cricket Center (SCC). And while watching the cricket live is a dream for expatriates in Saudi Arabia, this time, Saudis are also taking an interest in the game.
Of late, Gulf countries have been taking keen interest in this so-called gentleman’s game. Sharjah has become a popular venue for international matches. The UAE recently had its national team play first-class matches. A few months back, Abu Dhabi inaugurated its mammoth stadium with an India-Pakistan cricket encounter. For the first time in the Kingdom, Asia XI and Pakistan XI are playing matches Thursday and Friday as part of an effort to promote cricket in Saudi Arabia.
Nadim Nadwi, a development manager with SCC, told The Saudi Gazette that the main goal of the matches is to bring “all communities in Jeddah together” to watch lively but friendly matches between team members from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Cricket originated in England sometime after the Norman Invasion of 1066. However, as early as the 8th century, bat and ball games, such as polo, were played in southern Asia. And South Asian countries are very much involved in cricket as the game continues to enthrall millions all over the world.
“Watching cricket live is one of the dreams our teenagers have here in the Kingdom. I believe this match will be the dream that would come true,” said Indian Imran Salahuddin, Marketing Manager from Mubarko.
Living in the Kingdom for the last 15 years, Salahuddin said this is the first time his two sons will be able to closely look at batsmen and fielders on a cricket pitch.
Zaheer Yusuf, a Pakistani national who works at Al-Jazira Bank, said, “Being a sports lover, I will watch the whole match very closely, as cricket is very beneficial for bringing communities together.”
Yusuf said it is “wonderful” to see famous Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Sri Lankan cricketers in Jeddah.
For Yasir Ahmed, an Indian who works at Rowdah Book Supplies, these matches will not only help bring expatriate communities together, they will also introduce the Saudi community to tough and talented players of the game from South East Asia.
And match organizers are thinking deeply about how to promote the game among Saudis and make the Kingdom a regular venue for international cricket.
“This initiative would be a big event and I do believe that in future, Saudi Arabia will be a regular high-profile international cricket venue,” said Pakistani businessman Abid Masood, who added that the thrill at seeing live cricket in Jeddah is almost as much as seeing the World Cup.
“Previously, I didn’t even know what this game was, but now I watch the cricket matches that are played in Dubai, especially the Indian and Pakistani matches,” said Saleh Bahimeshan, a Saudi sports enthusiast.
“I hope that one day, Saudi Arabia would also become a regular cricket venue like the UAE,” he added. “I hope, this summer, the Kingdom would be entertained more with such activities by inviting cricket and football players.”
Since women are not permitted in the stadium, many female cricket fans are trying to get as much information as possible from their spouses or male relatives who will be watching live.
“Wherever the sport is, I believe that a healthy interaction and cultural exchange begins on the same time. What better than cricket itself!” said Shahida Jamal, a lecturer at a private women’s college.

ALL roads lead to Al-Ahli Club Stadium where Pakistan XI is meeting Asia XI in first of the two exhibition matches Thursday.

The glamorous Pakistan team, led by Inzamamul Haq, and four players each from Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have arrived here to make the long-cherished dream of cricket fans in Saudi Arabia come true. The players were accorded a warm reception by avid cricket fans and Saudi Cricket Center (SCC) officials at King Abdul Aziz International Airport on Tuesday evening.

Besides the scoring machine Inzamam the players who have arrived in Jeddah are Younis Khan, Mohammed Yusuf, Salman Butt, Imran Farhat, Kamran Akmal, Abdul Razzak, Danish Kaneria, Mohammed Sami, Arshad Khan, Umar Gul and Naeem Ahmed.

The eight players, who made the trip for Asia XI, are Roshan Mahanama, Romesh Kaluwitharana, Kumara Dharmasena and Dilhara Fernando from Sri Lanka and Mohammed Rafiq, Shahadat Hossain, Aftab Ahmed and Shahariar Nafees from Bangladesh.

The players from India, including skipper VVS Laxman and Wasim Jafer, who are selected to the India Test side against West Indies, are expected to arrive early Thursday.

While some players from Pakistan squad and Bangladesh opted for performing Umrah first Sri Lankan players and Pakistan's spin wizard Danish Kaneria had a brief work out at the venue.

Mohammed Riyad Al-Taki, special envoy of Prince Dr. Faisal Bin Muhammad Bin Saud Bin Abdul Aziz, Deputy Governor of Al-Baha, who has been in Jeddah to run the event smoothly, was thrilled and said: "The Prince is very particular to see these matches through so that the game spreads and takes its roots in the Kingdom."

The soft-spoken Hasan Kabir, Chief Executive Officer of SCC, thanked for the whole-hearted support from all quarters. "I really thank the Al-Ahli authorities who made our work easy and of course the well-wishers and cricket fans."

The matches will be officiated by Pakistani umpire Shakeel Khan and Waseeq Ahmed and Khaleel Kazi of SCC.

While Pakistan XI had no change from the squad which was announced much in advance the Asia XI missed Indian players VVS Laxman and Wasim Jaffer who were selected to the India's Test team, and Indian opener Gautam Gambhir.

Pakistan skipper Inzamamul Haq and Asia XI skipper Ajay Jadeja were led to the center for the toss and Imzamam called it right when Match Referee Absar Khan, one of the seniormost cricketers in the Kingdom, spun the coin. Pakistan elected to bat.

The crowd roared in frenzy when Dilhara Fernando started his run-up to deliver the first ball, a Kookabura turf ball, which was incidently called a wide.

Teams:
Pakistan XI: Inzamamul Haq (captain), Mohammed Yusuf, Younis Khan, Salman Butt, Imran Farhat, Kamran Akmal, Abdul Razzak, Danish Kaneria, Mohammed Sami, Arshad Khan, Umar Gul, Naeem Ahmed.

Asia XI: Ajay Jadeja (captain), Venkatapathi Raju (both India), Roshan Mahanama, Romesh Kaluwitharana, Kumara Dharmasena, Dilhara Fernando (all Sri Lanka), Mohammed Rafiq, Shahadat Hossain, Aftab Ahmed, Shahariar Nafees (all Bangladesh) and Nadeem Saad (Saudi).

At last some news about Bangladeshi boys, courtesy Daily Star (http://www.thedailystar.net/2006/05/28/d60528040430.htm)

Pakistan beat the Rest of Asia XI by four wickets in the second exhibition match, to clinch the series 2-0 at the Al-Ahli Stadium in Jeddah on Friday.


Set to score a modest target of 197 runs, Pakistan won in the 31st over losing six wickets.

Bangladesh middle-order batsman Aftab Ahmed scored 34 while opener Shahriar Nafees added 17 for the Asia XI.

Ace left-arm spinner Mohammad Rafique took two wickets.

Earlier in the first match on Thursday, Pakistan scored 215 runs after losing nine wickets, and then wrapped up the Asian XI for 205.
Shahriar Nafees made 29 while Rafique picked up two wickets. Four Bangladeshi players represented Rest of Asia XI, with paceman Shahadat Hossain remaining anonymous in the matches.

What does DS mean by that? Did he not play or played but did not get any wicket. If the later is true, was he expensive? In an 1-dayer being miserly is just as good as bieng deadly.:confused:
