West Indies tour Misbha's last cricket assignment: Chairman PCB

IQBAL Qasim says there is lot at stake for Pakistan

Mushtaq said Pakistan has a more established Test team than the West Indies and conditions in the Caribbean will be more like the UAE, which will favour Pakistan bowlers. In the recently concluded ODI series against England, which the West Indies lost 3-0, Brathwaite scored 12, 23 and 7 while failing to take any wickets, conceding 148 runs in the 24 overs he bowled.

In contrast, if Pakistan, who have won 11 of 19 matches against the West Indies in the West Indies this decade, win all the three matches, then they will join Bangladesh on 92 points and will be ranked ahead of their Asian rival by a fraction of a point. In the last one, just making poor decisions in that middle order [let us down].

The ODIs will be crucial, since the top eight teams in the ICC ODI rankings at the end of September 2017 automatically advance to the 2019 Cricket World Cup in England. That tournament is now scheduled to be held in Bangladesh, although that may change if Bangladesh - now ranked seventh with 91 points - gain an automatic qualification.

The Afghanistan Cricket Board (ACB) said the conclusion of the agreement for West Indies series is a major achievement.

West Indies squad: Jason Holder (captain), Devendra Bishoo, Jonathan Carter, Miguel Cummins, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Jason Mohammed, Ashley Nurse, Kieran Powell, Rovman Powell, Chadwick Walton.

North Dakota House committee OKs medical marijuana rules
The committee spent most of last week going over the 82-page bill on how medical marijuana would be overseen in the state. Dispensers would pay $25,000 per location and renew it for $5,000 after a year.

"It's a good squad", Holder pointed out, adding that "there are a couple of changes and it will be a good test; we just need to play good cricket".

“You might say Saturday is a good performance, but only one man performed so therefore you are talking about one man performing in every seven or eight matches and happen to win a match.

"There is plenty to work with there, it is not a matter of throwing in the towel or going back to scratch and starting again but players have got to start performing consistently".

"We underachieved during the T20 series".
