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

Ajmal was given land inside the university campus in 2012 to build and run his academy by the syndicate committee of the university.

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.

Adam Scott Moves to Conventional Putter at Presidents Cup

Adam Scott Moves to Conventional Putter at Presidents Cup

INCHEON, South Korea (Championspk) Adam Scott only has three months left before the method used for his long putter is banned.

He saw no need to wait.

Scott used a conventional putter for a practice round Monday at the Presidents Cup, and the 35-year-old Australian said this time he won’t be going back. Scott spent the last five weeks practicing with the new putter and a cross-handed grip that feels as comfortable as the long putter he had used the last four years.

”I think it was a good time to make a change and spend some time working on it,” Scott said. ”It’s a similar amount of time, actually, when I switched to the long putter, that gap of five weeks between events. It took shape quickly, and I feel the same will happen with this. It’s kind of refreshing to have to make a forced change because my putting stats are not that impressive this year.”

Scott’s putting has never been a strength, though this season his No. 158 ranking in the key putting statistic was his worst since he last used a conventional putter in 2010.

Golf’s ruling bodies adopted a new rule effective Jan. 1 that bans the anchored stroke used for longer putters. Scott switched to a long putter in 2011 and won the Masters two years later.

He showed up at Doral at the start of this year using a conventional putter and tied for fourth. But he missed the cut the following week at the Valspar Championship, finished 13 shots out of the lead at Bay Hill and went back to the long putter.

”I didn’t take any time going into that,” he said. ”I just did it with no thought and open mind to see how it went. It went well, really, but maybe I got a little jumpy as I neared the Masters without a little practice and went back. But this is a more permanent move. I think I’ve got to stick with it now and get good at it.”

Other players who won majors with an anchored putting stroke – Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley and Ernie Els – already made the switch. Scott got more attention than the others because his performance in the majors improved shortly after going to a long putter, even though he was ranked out of the top 100 in putting all but one year.

”There was a bit of a letdown and some frustration,” Scott said. ”I didn’t putt well knowing I had to make the change in the back of my mind, and now there’s a clear path going forward.”

Scott has gone 14 consecutive years winning somewhere in the world, a streak that now is in jeopardy going into his final six tournaments of the year. He has had only two top 10s since March – a tie for fourth in the U.S. Open and a tie for 10th in the British Open – and didn’t make it beyond the opening event of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

Turns out that extra month off proved useful.

Scott said he always felt as though a cross-handed grip would be the best style. He worked with his coach and the Scotty Cameron putting studio to find the right putter, and he showed up at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea feeling good about the rest of the year.

”I’m more confident putting it into play this week,” he said. ”Playing with it early in the year I didn’t know what to expect. This week … there has to be a week where I start, and it might as well be here. I’m confident I can make myself one of the best putters on tour with a short putter.”

Along with a conventional putter, the other difference with Scott was the tape on his right middle finger. He said he damaged it earlier in the year – he’s not sure when or even how – and it began to aggravate him around the PGA Championship. He discovered a torn ligament from the repetitive stress of hitting golf balls, but the time off helped and Scott said it has healed enough for him to play.
