A quick series for the boys...they are being offered quite a bit to tour:

West Indies will announce a 13-man touring squad to tour Pakistan when the ongoing World Cup Qualifier concludes. CWI did not confirm or deny the amount but it is being suggested that the touring squad are being offered around US$25,000 each for the three matches in Karachi on April 1, 2 and 3.

Depending on the contract status of players, that means they will be getting anywhere between 70% more and double what they would ordinarily be paid. Under the new CWI contracts announced in January, many of non-contracted T20 specialists got a raise of US$1725 to US$5000 per game, along with double match fees for all three formats.

Marlon Samuels
Kemar Roach
Nikita Miller
Jason Holder
Jason Mohammed
Devendra Bishoo
Ashley Nurse
Carlos Brathwaite
Evin Lewis
Kesrick Williams
Shai Hope
Rovman Powell
Shimron Hetmyer

Windies squad announced:

Jason Mohammad (capt) , Samuel Badree, Rayad Emrit, Andre Fletcher, Andre McCarthy, Keemo Paul, Veerasammy Permaul, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Marlon Samuels, Odean Smith, Chadwick Walton, Kesrick Williams

Jason Mohammad as captain..hmm I dunno

Would have rather Ramdin captaining, but he is returning to the T20 squad since the World Cup victory in 2016. Almost two years ago.

Odean Smith will be one of the guys to look out for. Some serious pace.
Veerasammy Permaul is there as backup spinner to Badree.

Glad to see Keemo and Odean in the squad. Andre McCarthy is mostly a batting allrounder these days.

The coach, Mickey Arthur didn't want these two guys, but the selectors still went ahead with them...

Pakistan will line up without Imad Wasim or Rumman Raees, with both failing to recover from injuries in time. Mohammad Hafeez was axed for the home games, while Kamran Akmal, the second-highest runscorer in the PSL was overlooked. Arthur said neither player fulfilled the requirements of the team. "We laid down a marker. If we look at the squad we've got, the doors are not closed on Mohammad Hafeez at all and he knows it. I had a chat with him about it, and if he is bowling, he becomes a very good option for us. If he isn't bowling, it becomes a problem. Hafeez is still a quality cricketer.

"[About Kamran] we often said that we are not going to pick players who just do well in one discipline. We want players who are able to excel in all disciplines and fielding is a non-negotiable point. If you can't field, you can't play for Pakistan. It's as simple as that. Kamran is a very good batsman but he can't field and Sarfaraz Ahmed is our wicketkeeper. So I qualify this by saying that we gave him a go in the West Indies and he didn't perform as well as he could have. He tried hard, as he does in domestic cricket all the time, but unfortunately as I said earlier if you can't field, you can't play for Pakistan."

Yes. I would still like to see the official documents that say that PCB paid CWI to tour.

We are not in the underground business of passing money. There should be a money trail.

So far I have seen no evidence of PCB paying the CWI

Mad. Just amazes me.
Till this day how they see us.

I’ve never heard about any pay bonuses of going there if BD players go. But they’ll happily put it on the plate for SL, WI any others. They even played Windies SL in UAE many times. And their reason for not hosting BD is ‘financial’ and apparently sponsors wont come. Are they born mental ret.rds?
Are you telling me BD sponsors wont come to sponsor? BD companies sponsored SL tours away and many others recent years, cricket market is bigger in BD than SL and wi put together. Plus in UAE alot of BD brands are sold in shops, so those brands would want to have their name going on ads boards to show themselves more, and theres more Bangladeshis in Dubai/UAE than WI and SL put together, im sure there’ll be support coming.

But. Funny thing is, They really actually think we will go from any pressure from there? :lol:

Mohammad Amir to Emrit, 1 run, OUT, steered towards square third man, superb timing but what's the point? They've committed hara kiri. Emrit turned around for the second and got to the other end, except that Kesrick didn't move an inch. So Sarfraz collected the ball and then ran all the way down to the bowler's end and whipped the bails off.

Sarfraz is the Wicket Keeper who stands behind the stump!!!!!!! Uuuuuf!!!

FYI, Sarfaraz was in front of the stumps when he collected the ball from third man...


even third man would have ran with the ball and dislodged the bails at the non-striker's end. It's like the boys don't wanna bat.

He got fed enough short balls outside the off stump to settle in and then the freedom to play his strokes at the end.

Gayle, Lewis, Bravo, Pollard, Brathwaite, Sammy, Narine - all familiar names in World T20. And all this 7 players would perhaps easily walk into "WINDIES" T20 team.

How do you expect to win w/o any of them? And the fielding. Their fielding is below par even in 90's standard.

Why on Earth did the Windies even agree to play this series? No pre-series preparation. No acclimatization period. No time for players to gel as a team. Player selection not confirmed until days before the series. Players flown in on the eve of the series opener. Three games back to back with second and third string players against the No. 1 T20 side in the world in their home. Unless the WICB had committed to this series ages ago it makes no sense whatsoever.

There was jubilation at the ground by every single fan. Karachi is a good venue for this...

The young kids all got to dream big and emulate their cricketers. It's win win for Pakistan cricket, and plus they are the world's #1 T20 team.

So much to be proud about.
PSL brought some great young talents to the Pakistan team: Talat, Asif, Faheem, Nawaz, and Afridi.

Also, Micky Arthur has made a great move by pushing Babar to open the innings, taking a leaf from Haturasinghe, who sent Kusal Mendis up to open in Nihadas.

Also Sarfaraz is a good leader for his boys. He brings something special to the table.

Well done Pakistan :up:

The million dollar, or should I say $25,000, question is: Would other countries be travelling to Pakistan?
