Pakistan should never Accept the offer to play cricket series in India

Pakistan should never Accept the offer to play cricket series in India

ISLAMABAD (Championspk) Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has on Monday said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play cricket series in India. He said that it is impossible for Pakistan to keep singing the ballads of friendship despite continuous hate-mongering from the Indian side,

Talking informally to media at Punjab House in Islamabad, Chaudhry Nisar said that India’s treatment was unfair with former Foreign Minister Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Shehryar Khan, PCB Chief Executive Najam Sethi and revered singer Ghulam Ali. “Why was there no action against anyone for such behaviour with Pakistanis in India?” questioned Nisar.

Pakistani Interior Minister said that Indian government was behind everything that happened to the Pakistani citizens in India. He said that Pakistan should never accept the offer to play the cricket series in India. “It is Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s prerogative whether he wants to send the team to India or not but I will keep opposing such an act”, he added.

“It is impossible for us to keep singing the ballads of friendship while Indians continue war-mongering”, he said. Nisar added that Pakistan will raise the issue of declaring Shiv Sena as a terrorist organization on international level

IOC Executive Board takes action following WADA Independent Commission – provisionally suspends Mr. Lamine Diack

IOC Executive Board takes action following WADA Independent Commission – provisionally suspends Mr. Lamine Diack

Norway(Championspk)The International Olympic Committee (IOC) is closely monitoring the situation after the Independent Commission of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) released its report on 9 November. The IOC expects the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) and WADA to consider all necessary action to be taken to protect the clean athletes and rebuild trust.

Even if it has not been directly addressed in the report, the IOC has already decided to take the following steps itself:

The IOC’s Executive Board decided this afternoon to confirm the proposal of the IOC Ethics Commission to provisionally suspend Mr. Lamine Diack, the former President of IAAF, from his honorary membership of the IOC.

As far as the Olympic Games may be concerned the IOC Executive Board decided:

The IOC has asked the IAAF to initiate disciplinary procedures against all athletes, coaches and officials who have participated in the Olympic Games and are accused of doping in the report of the Independent Commission. With its zero-tolerance policy against doping, following the conclusion of this procedure, the IOC will take all the necessary measures and sanctions with regard to the withdrawal and reallocation of medals and as the case may be exclusion of coaches and officials from future Olympic Games;

The IOC studied the functioning of the WADA accredited laboratory in Sochi during the Olympic Winter Games 2014 following the doubts expressed during the Independent Commission’s press conference. In this context the IOC relies on the then report of the WADA independent observer group which makes no mention of any such irregularity. Nor was any such irregularity reported by the international experts involved, nor found by the IOC itself. Therefore, the IOC has no reason to question the credibility of the results of the anti-doping tests carried out at the Olympic Winter Games 2014. However, the IOC retaining all the doping samples for ten years, will retest samples in an appropriate way should substantial doubts arise. In any case, the IOC may retest samples once new scientific techniques become available

Ajmal was given land inside the university campus in 2012 to build and run his academy by the syndicate committee of the university. But few months back the syndicate issued a notice sent to the Pakistan spinner informing him that due to security reasons they had cancelled the permission given to him to run the academy. The off spinner said he had removed all apprehensions of the university while the DCO had agreed to ensure top security for the academy. “Everything is settled now and I am allowed to continue running the academy. I told them I have no financial or commercial motives and just want to produce top class players from the talent in Faisalabad,” Ajmal said.

Although he has modified his bowling action and will be going for the Bangladesh Premier League this month, the in PCB Pakistani cricket borad some officials is PCB Mafia and selectors have ignored him since always.

Xi appeals for Sino-British football boost

Xi appeals for Sino-British football boost

Manchester( Championspk)President Xi Jinping called on Friday for China and Britain to strengthen co-operation on football as he ended his four-day state visit to the United Kingdom.

As the birthplace of modern football and boasting strong teams, Britain is the country China should learn from, Xi said.

He said both countries should bolster co-operation and exchanges in the sport to promote friendship between their two peoples.

Football is the sport that most people play in the world and it has an extensive influence and is welcomed deeply by people globally, the president said.

Xi, who is a football fan, made his appeal as he toured the City Football Academy in Manchester where he was presented with a football shirt by Manchester City players.

Accompanied by British Prime Minister David Cameron, he visited the state-of-the-art training facility that includes a 7,000-capacity stadium and 16 football fields. The academy is home to Manchester City Football Club and is the headquarters of its global football organisation.

The president and Cameron posed for a selfie with Sergio Aguero, City’s star Argentine striker. The photo went viral on the Internet.

Xi and Cameron were hosted by Manchester City Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak. They watched a training session and met players who helped build the city’s football tradition, including former Manchester United captain Gary Neville and ex-City stars Patrick Vieira and Mike Summerbee.

Xi and Cameron also toured the National Football Museum, which houses artifacts including a ball used in the final of the inaugural 1930 World Cup.

The museum presented a copy of the first competition rules for modern world football to Xi as a gift. In return, he presented a cooper statue featuring cuju, an ancient Chinese football game, to the museum and a cooper statue of a cuju doll to Manchester City.

Another highlight of the visit was the induction into the National Football Museum’s Hall of Fame of Chinese player Sun Jihai, who played 130 times for Manchester City between 2002 and 2008.

Sun, the first Chinese player to score in the English Premier League, was named City’s Ambassador to China last month.

“Xi’s visit to the City Football Academy is a great encouragement for the development of Chinese football,” Sun said, adding that training for young players is the most important task now in China.

With the ongoing football reforms in the country, Sun said he hopes the Chinese national team can make good progress.

Al Mubarak, the City chairman, said,” It was a wonderful moment for all concerned to see Sun Jihai’s contribution to both Manchester and English football recognised by the National Football Museum.

“Today is testament to the club’s strong existing links with China and to our ambitions for them to deepen and grow.”

Xi is scheduled to arrive in Beijing on Saturday.

The Blue Jackets top five trade candidates as the spiral continues

The Blue Jackets top five trade candidates as the spiral continues

Canada( ByJared Clinton)Thursday night the Columbus Blue Jackets dropped their eighth straight game in what was John Tortorella’s first game back behind an NHL bench. The hope was that Tortorella, who took over from the fired Todd Richards, would be the spark the Blue Jackets needed to immediately be jumpstarted to their first victory — or point, at the very least — of the season. Instead, a late redirect by Minnesota Wild winger Tomas Vanek ripped a potential overtime point from Columbus’ hands, and now the questions begin about what changes could be coming next.

Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen has made no secret of the fact that he has been exploring the trade market in search of a top-pairing defenseman and finding a deal isn’t going to be easy this early in the season. It’s clear, too, that Kekalainen doesn’t want to make any deals that mortgage his club’s future. That said, here are five players Kekalainen could part with who could fetch his Blue Jackets a good return: KERBY RYCHEL The most obvious choice to be moved out of Columbus is the 21-year-old Rychel. Drafted by the Blue Jackets in the first round of the 2013 draft, Rychel has spent much of the past two seasons in the AHL. In 51 games with the Springfield Falcons in 2014-15, he scored 12 goals and 33 points, and got a five-game audition with the Blue Jackets last season. Throughout the off-season and into the beginning of this season, Rychel’s name has been the center of trade speculation out of Columbus. At 6-foot-1, 205 pounds, he has the perfect frame to be a young power forward, a position that the Blue Jackets filled when they acquired Brandon Saad from the Chicago Blackhawks this off-season. With Rychel’s upside, he could fetch a significant return should Columbus be willing to pull the trigger on dealing him away. BOONE JENNER Jenner is entering his third full season with the Blue Jackets and coming off of a season in which he missed more than 50 games due to injury. In 31 games, though, Jenner managed nine goals and 17 points. He has the ability to be a very effective depth winger and his game is only looking like it will get better. Like Rychel, Jenner’s size is maybe his best asset. He stands 6-foot-2, 208 pounds and he’s got decent wheels for his frame. He was an extremely prolific scorer in the OHL, notching 45 goals and 82 points in 58 games in his final campaign with the Oshawa Generals. Jenner wouldn’t likely get Kekalainen a massive return — it’d be shocking to see Jenner be dealt one-for-one for an impact player — but if he is packaged with the right mix of picks and low-level prospects, he could be an interesting depth piece for whichever team lands him. Jenner is in the final year of his entry-level deal, so if a team were to deal for him, they wouldn’t have to worry about him going anywhere anytime soon. BRANDON DUBINSKY From a pure points-per-game perspective, Dubinsky is coming off of the best season of his career. He missed nearly half the 2014-15 campaign due to injury but Dubinsky scored 13 goals and 36 points in 47 outings for Columbus. In eight games, he’s also the third-highest scorer on the Blue Jackets with two goals and four points. Dubinsky is a consistent threat for 40 points per season and he’s scored 20 goals twice in his career. That said, he hasn’t reached that mark since the 2010-11 season with the New York Rangers. The Blue Jackets are getting younger and they need help on defense. Dubinsky, 29, is one of the more elder statesmen in Columbus and teams looking for a veteran pivot to play in a second-line role could do much worse than Dubinsky. The biggest difficulty in moving Dubinsky is his contract, which kicked in this season, has a no-movement clause and modified no-trade clause and sees him earn $5.85 million for each of the next six seasons. That’s going to make it tough for Kekalainen to trade Dubinsky, but he could get a solid second-pairing blueliner in a one-for-one deal. If it’s a package deal, maybe the Blue Jackets can get even more. MATT CALVERT Calvert’s name doesn’t jump off the page, but the 26-year-old signed a three-year, $2.2-million deal this off-season which is good value for the winger. He’s not going to wow with his offensive ability, but Calvert is a solid two-way forward. He can play on both a second power play unit and is more than capable of manning a top penalty kill. It’s the versatility of Calvert that makes him intriguing. If he could stay healthy, he could be a 20-goal scorer. In his WHL days, Calvert showed the type of offensive punch that would interest some GMs around the league, as he notched 47 goals and 99 points in his final season with the Brandon Wheat Kings. He’s entering his prime now, too, so the prospect of a couple career years might help Kekalainen move Calvert. Trading Calvert would almost certainly mean packaging him with something, though, because the winger isn’t the kind of difference-maker that would garner a top-two or three defenseman coming back in any one-for-one trade. More than likely, Calvert could be an addition to sweeten the pot for the team Kekalainen is dealing with. RYAN JOHANSEN This is a stretch and would be the boldest move of all for Kekalainen, but this team is in desperate need of a top-pairing blueliner and Johansen would absolutely be able to fetch that. Johansen’s coming off of a career year with 26 goals and 71 points, can be an all-situations player if need be and is the top-line center on the Blue Jackets. That said, with Columbus needing a goal to tie Thursday’s game against the Wild, Johansen was stapled to the bench. He didn’t budge from his spot for the final six minutes of the contest and skated a season low 13:57 even though he wasn’t on for a single goal against. From a financial perspective, it also might be worth it to move Johansen. He’s making $4 million per season for the next two years and will be up for a new deal in July 2017. Contract talks with the Blue Jackets have already been contentious once and there’s no reason to believe they wouldn’t be again, because with the way Johansen performed in the first year of his new deal, he’s going to be needing a significant raise. It’s doubtful — extremely doubtful, really — that Kekalainen has grown desperate enough for a solution in Columbus that he would entertain offers for Johansen quite yet. But if the Blue Jackets lose a ninth, tenth or even eleventh in a row, anything could happen.
