The Pakistan Cricket Board s Interim Management
Committee, led by Najam Sethi, has sought the help
of the Pakistan government in an attempt to revive
international cricket in the country.
The board will soon meet Pakistan s prime minister
Nawaz Sharif soon, Sethi said, adding that the support
of the government could help get a chance to host
"I really wish to begin a campaign and use all diplo-
matic channels for the return of international cricket
to our country," Sethi said at a press conference on
Sunday. "We want to host international matches and
want our stadiums to be fully filled and fans cheering
for the teams.
"We have requested the prime minister to help us
in this regard and we are going to meet him very soon.
He called us for a meeting a few days ago but it was
canceled due to Chuck Hagel s (US Secretary of Defense)
visit. But the meeting will be held soon. I think it will
help. An adjournment motion has also been put in
the assembly and I think that will also help."
Recently, the Pakistan People s Party, a leading polit-
ical outfit, submitted an adjournment motion in Pak-
istan s National Assembly suggesting that the issue
of the revival of international cricket in the country
be discussed in the House. The motion said that it
was unfortunate Pakistan did not host too many inter-
national games as the sport, apart from providing
entertainment for cricket fans, was a major source of
Pakistan has not hosted an international game since
March 2009, when masked terrorists attacked the
team bus carrying Sri Lanka s cricketers in Lahore.
Cheteshwar Pujara didn t have to think too hard
when asked who the fastest bowler he has ever faced
is. Morne Morkel.
The answer may come as a surprise, especially since
Pujara has recently played against the likes of Dale
Steyn and Tino Best. But Pujara was adamant. Morkel
was the quickest.
South Africa s management team would be pleased.
For months, they have been saying the same thing.
Morkel has got the speed gun more excited than Steyn,
and has softened batsmen up more than Vernon Phi-
lander but just hasn t recorded the same results. Luckily
for them, Morkel is completely comfortable playing
a supporting role.
"My partnership with Dale is long gone. Vernon
and Dale are the new guys and I ve made peace with
that. I am not going to wear the yellow jersey anymore,"
Morkel said, referring to what a cyclist dons when he
is the stage leader in a race. "Those guys have been
unbelievable for the team."
Between them, Steyn and Philander have taken 69
wickets in Tests this year. Steyn s 41 have come at an
average of 14.36 while Philander s 28 average 16.35.
Contrastingly, Morkel has managed only 13 wickets
at 30.69, but he has played as important a role as the
Morkel s job is a balance between pressing home
any advantage Steyn and Philander give South Africa,
while buttering batsmen up for a fresh assault from
the opening pair. With the bounce he generates, he
has to ensure the batsmen can never settle and has
also been tasked with keeping run-scoring to a min-
imum, as he did in the Abu Dhabi Test against Pak-
When neither Steyn nor Philander could break
through, Morkel simply held his end. He was South
Africa s most economical bowler, costing them only
1.52 runs an over, and even though they lost that
match, Morkel s ability to contain was a positive.
Traditionally, Morkel does not so much frustrate as
cause fear. He applies the basting---short of length
balls which keep batsmen on the back foot and bouncers
directed at the body---so someone else can do the
roasting. Despite the Wanderers surface likely to offer
more for Morkel than some of the other bowlers, he
sees himself playing a similar role.
"When I come to the Wanderers, I bowl for one
dismissal---for the caught behind because I get so
much bounce," he said. Morkel has taken 15 of his 177
wickets at the ground, with a best of four for 59 against
England three years ago, which may be why he doesn t
see it as his favourite hunting ground. "The most
important thing for me is to stick to my strengths.
It s always been bouncy and quick here and the margins
are a little bit smaller. It will be crucial that we do not
get carried away."
While conditions will suit the seamers more than
in other places, Morkel is still well aware that batsmen
have also enjoyed playing at the Wanderers. The ball
comes onto the bat quicker, aiding stroke-making,
while altitude and a fast outfield allow the ball to travel
faster once hit.
For Morkel, that means there s a distinct possibility
of a high-scoring game, especially because of the
mindset of the Indian players, which he described as
"very attacking." He identified Rohit Sharma, Virat
Kohli and R Ashwin as batsmen who would take the
fight to SAfrica and wants his team-mates to start
well to blunt the line-up s intent. (ESPNcricinfo)
