Pak name squad to face India in Abu Dhabi ties

Pakistan have included uncapped spin bowler Abdul Rahman in a 14-man squad for two one-day matches against India in Abu Dhabi later this month. Slow left-armer Rahman was also chosen for a recent series in Sri Lanka but is still waiting to make his debut.
The games on April 18 and 19 are the first in a plan to take cricket to countries with large expatriate populations. And money from the first will be donated to the Kashmir earthquake relief appeal fund. We will donate 75 per cent of the earnings of the first match for the Pakistani earthquake victims and 25 per cent will go to those affected by the quake in India, said the Pakistan Cricket Board official, Mr Asad Mustafa.

Asian rivals plan European series

India and Pakistan could play a series of one-day matches against each other throughout Europe in 2007.
English cricket chief David Collier told the BBC five matches are likely between the arch rivals, two in England and three at other European venues.
Lalit Modi, of the Board of Control for Cricket in India said Lord's had already agreed to host a match, pending ECB approval.
The India and Pakistan boards want to stage more games in countries where there are large expatriate populations.
And they have already arranged two games to be played in the new stadium in Abu Dhabi on 18 and 19 April.
Seventy-five per cent of the proceeds from the game in Abu Dhabi will go to the Pakistan earthquake relief fund, with the remaining 25% given to those affected by the disaster in Indian administered Kashmir.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India was in 2004 the driving force behind a three-team series in Amsterdam, also including Pakistan and Australia.
Collier also confirmed the ECB is bidding for Twenty20 World Championship events in 2009 and 2013 as well as the 2015 World Cup in the 50-over format.

Pakistan to play 3 Tests on India tour

Pakistan have agreed to play three Tests and seven One-day Internationals on their tour of India from first week of November next year.
The schedule has been incorporated in the new six-year future tours programme of the International Cricket Council (ICC), The News quoted Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Director of Operations Saleem Altaf as saying after returning from a meeting with ICC officials in Dubai.
''It was a good meeting from our point of view because all of our issues have been cleared now by the ICC as far as the FTP is concerned. Our programmes have been accordingly scheduled in the six-year cycle and have been circulated to the members,'' Altaf said.
In the new FTP, Pakistan will play host to South Africa from first week of September to late October and then tour India, from first week of November in 2007.
''In the new FTP, India will now tour Pakistan in 2009 and 2113.'' He also said Pakistan had made a bid for the 2008 Champions Trophy, but India had tabled a resolution, asking for the Champions Trophy tournament to be held after every four-years instead of its biannual cycle.
''The Indian resolution and the bids submitted for various ICC events including our bid would now all be decided at the executive board meeting of the ICC on March 21,'' he added.

India's World Cup Victory in 1983

The 1983 Prudential World Cup in England was a turning point in the history of cricket and for the Indian Subcontinent. The West Indies, India, Australia, and the newcomers Zimbabwe contested the B group, and it got off to a rousing start when India with only one World cup win to this point beat the favourites, the West Indies, by 34 runs. They along with their neighbours, Pakistan, reached the semi-finals for the first time, bringing the spirit of the subcontinent into the world arena for the first time. Though Pakistan lost to West Indies, India beat the then world champions in the final to bring the trophy to Asia for the first time. Binny with 18 (still a record for most wickets in a World Cup tournament), and Madan Lal with 17 wickets were their leading bowlers, and Kapil Dev topped the batting averages. Kapil's Kapil Dev 175* against Zimbabwe still remains one of the most astonishing comebacks in a cricket match. Finals: India won by 43 runs
Score: INDIA 183 all out in 54.4 overs [Srikkanth 38(57 b, 7-4s 1-6); Roberts 3-32] Beat W INDIES 140 all out in 52 overs [IVA Richards 33(42 b, 7-4s); Madan Lal 3-31 Amarnath 3-12] India Cricket Live

Pakistan's World Cup Victory in 1992

The 1987 World Cup in India and Pakistan was disastrous for both the countries as they lost in their semifinal matches held in their respective countries. Despite Australia's (the 1987 champions) failure to reach the final of the 1992 Benson & Hedges Cricket Championships, a record World Cup final crowd of more than 85,000 greeted Pakistan and England at the MCG. Before the finals, a supreme effort from Inzamam-ul-Haq (60 off only 37 balls) aginst New Zealand secured Pakistan's place in the 1992 World Cup final. Pakistan's greatest moment in World Cup history came in 1992 with victory in Australia. After a slow start they built as a team over the course of the competition, winning as other more fancied opponents slipped by the wayside. They beat a tired and beleaguered England in the final with ease. Finals: Pakistan won by 22 Runs
Score: PAKISTAN 249 for 6 Wickets in 50 overs [Imran Khan 72(110 b, 5-4s 1-6; Miandad 58(98 b, 4-4s); Derek Pringle 3-22] Beat ENGLAND 227 all out in 49.2 overs [Neil Fairbrother 62(70 b, 3-4s); Wasim Akram 3-49 Mushtaq Ahmed 3-41]
