Cricket revival in Pakistan in doubt

Ireland cricket board was in negotiation with Pakistan cricket board for a tour but after recent terrorist attack on Karachi airport, Ireland has decided to hold back on its tour. Ireland had been willing to tour Pakistan after Bangladesh decided to withdraw from series in Pakistan last year. 
Barry Chambers said “Cricket Ireland and the PCB were in advanced discussions to play three ODIs in Pakistan in September.” He also added, "Cricket Ireland is obviously very keen to secure as many fixtures as possible against Full Members, and these proposed games would have been very beneficial ahead of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup." These discussions has also involved contact with ICC, government and security advisers. However, after recent attack at Karachi airport, hopes of cricket revival in Pakistan has started fading away once again.

Paul Marsh joined AFLPA

Paul Marsh had been fulfilling his duties as Australian Cricketers Association chief executive and decided its time for him to move ahead and taking role as head of AFL player association. Footy is most popular sports in Australia and cricket has lost heaps of grounds and some good Aussie administrative figures. Its a big blow to cricket and yet an other window of progress to AFL. Australian cricket team coach Darren Lehman said, "Paul has left an indelible mark on both the players and the game." He also added, "From a personal point of view Paul has provided an enormous amount of support. I've really valued his leadership, advice, integrity and mateship. There's no doubt he'll be sorely missed but he's left both domestic and Australian cricketers - as well as the game generally - in a really strong position."

NZ defeated WI in first Test

New Zealand beat West Indies in the first test match at Kingston by 186 runs. Debutant Mark Craig stars in massive victory by NZ. He took 4 wickets for 91 runs in first innings and 4 wickets for 97 runs in second innings. It is New Zealand second Test win in Caribbean and team should be happy with over all performance. Chris Gayle became 8th West Indian player to score over 7000 runs in Test but he couldn't click with bat in his second innings. 403 was a big target to win and West Indies struggled to bat through 4th day. New Zealand had the benefit of scoring 508 runs in first innings (2 centuries by 2 class batsmen), however they struggled with bat in their second innings. This match would have definitely boost confidence of kiwis and they would be looking forward to win Test series.
