Badminton Federation bans Murad for two years
ABDUL JABBAR FAISAL ISLAMABAD (July 6, 2021)-Pakistan Badminton Federation (PBF) on Tuesday banned top national player Murad Ali for two years, as he had leveled the allegations against the federation in different media statements. The decision of two-year ban was taken in a meeting of the Executive Committee of PBF that was taken place today (Tuesday) at Pakistan Olympic House Lahore. On this occasion, the House congratulated Mahoor Shahzad for becoming the first Pakistani female athlete to participate in the Badminton at Olympic Games. The members applauded the hard work of Mahoor and her parents and expressed their gratitude for the support provided by the Pakistan Olympic Association and World Badminton and Badminton Asia. The members reiterating the decisions of PBF in supporting Mahoor Shahzad as the most talented female badminton player of Pakistan cited as a progress in the right direction. The members also congratulated Nisar Shahwani and Wajid Ali Chaudhry for taking all the necessary measures. The members considered the statements of Palwasha Bashir and Murad Ali in regarding the inclusion of Mahoor’s Olympic slot. The house noting the ranking lists found that both Palwasha and Murad Ali have faked their titles, misrepresented, leveled baseless allegations and attempted to degrade the efforts of athletes and the PBF through national and social media. The members reiterated that while PBF is ready to extend all support to the athletes, any campaign maligning the Federation, athletes and officials is unacceptable. The Executive Committee reviewing the previous proceedings and undertakings of Murad Ali decided to impose a ban on Murad Ali from participating in any badminton event for two years concluding on 06th July, 2023. He may opt to file an appeal against the decision before the General Council of Pakistan Badminton Federation. The Executive Committee decided to refer the case of Palwasha to the Disciplinary Committee that shall initiate an inquiry against her and submit its report within a month and by inviting Palwasha to represent and clarify her position.

Women Cricket: Pakistan South Africa T20I series starts on Friday
SPORTS REPORT DURBAN (January 28, 2021):-Pakistan women’s national cricket team will face South Africa in a three-match T20I series, which will be played at Durban’s Kingsmead Cricket Stadium from Friday. This will be the national side’s first international T20I format assignment since the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia last year. Pakistan have played eight T20Is in South Africa to date and faced South Africa in six of them. The tourists have won two - all in the last tour in 2019 – and lost four. Nida Dar was the leading run-getter (192 runs) and highest wicket-taker (five wickets) when Pakistan toured South Africa in 2019. In the recently concluded three-match ODI series, the 34-year-old scored back-to-back half-centuries in the first two matches and finished as the third best batter with 124 runs. Aliya Riaz topped the batting charts as she scored 136 runs – which included her career-best 81 in the second ODI. The all-rounder enjoys a healthy 71.50 batting average against South Africa in T20Is – the third best for the batters, who have scored more than 100 runs in the format against them. Pakistan captain Javeria Khan says her side is well equipped to challenge the hosts in their conditions. “It is a new series and presents us an opportunity to bounce back on the tour,” she told PCB Digital. “We have some exciting cricketers in our ranks, who can leave a mark and they are eager to make the most of this series. “All-rounders Nida Dar and Aliya Riaz have been in good form and their ability to hit the ball hard and contribute with the ball in the crucial middle overs provide good balance to the side. Diana Baig, who is on her first tour of South Africa, turned out to be the most successful bowler in the ODI series, which is a good sign for us and the presence of Aiman Anwar provides depth to our pace bowling department. “We have impressive spinners in Anam Amin, Nashra Sandhu and Sadia Iqbal and I have no doubts that these players will raise their hands when the situation demands from them.” In the recently concluded ODI series, Pakistan lost to the hosts by the margins of three runs, 13 runs and 32 runs and Javeria is hopeful that her side will learn from the mistakes. “We played good cricket in chunks but squandered opportunities to grab the game. We needed our batters to provide us solid starts, which was not the case, and we unfortunately also let go of crucial chances while fielding. “Batting in South Africa can be difficult. That our batters have been exposed to these conditions and have played three matches at the venue where we will be playing the T20I series, I am hopeful they will respond to the demands of the matches in T20I series accordingly.” Pakistan squad: Javeria Khan (c), Aimen Anwar, Aliya Riaz, Anam Amin, Ayesha Naseem, Ayesha Zafar, Diana Baig, Fatima Sana, Kainat Imtiaz, Muneeba Ali Siddiqui, Nahida Khan, Nashra Sandhu, Nida Dar, Omaima Sohail, Sadia Iqbal, Sidra Nawaz (wk) and Syeda Aroob Shah
