Swedish women squad ready to show power in Beijing Winter Olympics 2022
Andrew Podnieks It has been a tough three years for the Swedish women. They finished 9th at the 2019 IIHF Ice Hockey Women’s World Championship and were demoted to Division I-A for 2020. That tournament was cancelled because of coronavirus, and in 2021 Division I-A was again victim of cancellation. The top division was played in August, and because of the situation no teams were demoted or promoted, so the 2022 Women’s Worlds will once again be played without Sweden next summer, which can’t hope to return to the top level until 2023 now. Fortunately, amid the problems, the national team managed to secure a spot in the Olympics thanks to victory in the qualification tournament held in Lulea, Sweden last November. The Swedes finished in first place with a perfect 3-0 record, including a key 3-2 win over second-place France. That team was coached by Ulf Lundberg, who took over from Ylva Martinsen after the disappointing demotion in 2019, the first time the Swedish women – or any Swedish national team – were sent out of the top division. But there is a feeling of optimism as well leading into Beijing, one that perhaps hearkens back to 2002, when the team almost didn’t go to Salt Lake because so little was expected of it – and then ended up winning a bronze medal. There is only one roster change between the successful qualification team and the Olympic roster that has just been announced. Defender Linnea Andersson is out and veteran Emmy Alasalmi, who missed the Final Olympic Qualification due to injury, is in. But despite the shared experience from last year, this is a young team, and only nine players in Beijing have previous Olympic participation. In all, 14 players on the roster are 1998-born or later. One of the more experienced players is goalie Sara Grahn. The 33-year-old has played at every tournament for her country since 2007, and she is tied with Switzerland’s Florence Schelling for the most Women’s Worlds tournaments played (ten). Grahn gives Damkronorna a chance to win every time she settles into the blue ice, and she will clearly be the number-one goalie in China. Backing her up with be two young players with only WW18 experience – 24-year-old Emma Soderberg and 18-year-old Ida Boman. Although she is only 21, Maja Nylen-Persson has tons of IIHF experience and will be counted on among the defence. She played in PyeongChang and has also skated in three WW18 and two senior Women’s Worlds events. Johanna Fallman is the senior member of the blue-line corps. The 31-year-old has been a fixture on the team since 2011, and the late-blooming Anna Kjellbin, a teammate with Fallman in Lulea, will also be in Beijing. The aforementioned Alasalmi has played more big games than Linnea Andersson, including at the 2018 Olympics and bronze-medal games at the 2010 and 2012 WW18. Linnea Hedin is another veteran from that team, while Mina Waxin, at 20, is the youngest member of the blueliners and a teammate with Nylen-Persson with Brynas. Up front, there is a wealth of young talent that has every capability of making a big splash. Captain Emma Nordin played her first event with Sweden at the 2008 WW18, and she will be playing in her fourth Olympic Winter Games, putting her in rare company indeed. She can score and make plays, skate tenaciously, and inspire those around her. Sara Hjalmarsson is another holdover from 2018, but at 24 she is still very much in the early stages of her career. She is one of only two women on the team playing NCAA hockey right now. Goalie Emma Soderberg is at the prestigious University of Minnesota-Duluth while Hjalmarsson is at Providence College, one of only two Europeans on the Friars’ roster. But perhaps the one player to watch for in terms of star power is Hanna Olsson. The 23-year-old played in a record-tying four WW18 tournaments as well as four Women’s Worlds and the 2018 Olympics. She can skate, score, pressure her opponents, do it all, really. Michelle Lowenhielm, three years older, has pretty much the same resume, except her Olympic experience came in 2014. After a career at UMD, Lowenhielm became the first Swede to play in the NWHL and has worked her way back into the national team lineup after an absence of nearly five years. She also will be counted on to create offence. At 19, Linnea Johansson is the youngest player on the team after Boman. She played at the 2018 and 2020 WW18 and is now competing in her first senior tournament. Josefin Bouveng, who also played on that historic 2018 WW18 team that won silver, will further add to the team’s depth of skill up front. In the two-tiered Olympic women’s ice hockey tournament Sweden will be playing in Group B along with Japan, Czechia, Denmark, and China, and with some fortuitous performances it might find a way to qualify for the quarter-finals against one of the top teams and possibly go even further. The talent is there.

Under-19 CWC 2022: India maintain winning start and Australia bounce back
Sports Bulletin ISLAMABAD:-India made it two wins from two at the ICC Under 19 Men’s Cricket World Cup thanks to a brilliant batting performance against Ireland. The four-time champions made 307 for five from their 50 overs on the way to a 174-run win that puts them top of Group B. Meanwhile, three-time champions Australia were pushed by an impressive Scotland team but managed to seal a win that marks the perfect response after their defeat to Sri Lanka on Monday. India show class to defeat Ireland India followed up Saturday’s 45-run win over South Africa with a comprehensive victory against Ireland at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad and Tobago. Opener Harnoor Singh set the tone for his team, back to his best form after only scoring a solitary run in the win over South Africa on Saturday. This time he made 88 before Matthew Humphreys trapped him lbw. However, by that point India were already closing in on 200, helped by Angkrish Raghuvanshi’s 79. They then set a daunting target of 308 for Tim Tector’s team, who started the tournament with a 39-run over Uganda, to hunt down. The powerplay proved tricky for Ireland to get a foothold in the match and keep up with the required run rate. And when spinner Rajvardhan Hangargekar struck in only the third over to send Jack Dickson back to the dressing room, they were left reeling. Any hopes of a fightback finally went when Joshua Cox’s thick edge was caught at the second attempt by wicketkeeper Dinesh Bana as he headed back to the pavilion for 28. Ireland were eventually bowled out for 133, Aneeshwar Gautam perhaps the pick of the Men in Blue attack with figures of two for 11 at an economy of 2.75. India next face Uganda, where a win would see them secure top spot in Group B, while Ireland face South Africa. Australia’s batters see them through tricky Scotland test Wednesday’s opening game saw two teams with a point to prove go head-to-head. Australia sent Scotland in to bat first at the Conaree Cricket Centre, a decision that looked like it might backfire when Scotland’s openers made a positive start. Charlie Tear and Oliver Davidson took their team beyond 80 before Davidson (33) was run-out. Wicketkeeper Tear, hit nine boundaries on the way to a half-century, before falling to an Issac Higgins delivery just three overs after his fellow opener departed. However, Thomas Mackintosh kept up Scotland’s momentum after surviving a close lbw appeal facing his second delivery. Joined at the crease by Samuel Elstone, Mackintosh found his touch and the pair put on an impressive 71 partnership, before an outside edge from Elstone found Cooper Connolly. Although some good fielding from William Salzmann saw skipper Charlie Peet run out on his very first delivery, Scotland ended on a respectable 236 for eight. But their opponents’ response started well, with run-machine Teague Wyllie and Campbell Kellaway attacking the powerplay. The pair stuck 100 on the scoreboard without loss, before Kellaway (47) departed just shy of a half-century. That couldn’t stop an impressive Australia chase, with his replacement at the crease Aidan Cahill smashing 72 from 45 balls. Wyllie (101 not out) reached his century to help complete the job as Australia reached their target with seven wickets remaining. Despite a third straight loss in the tournament, Scotland will enter the Plate quarter-finals with their confidence boosted after producing their best all-round performance in their final Group D game.

Bangladesh, Scotland win on second day of ICC Commonwealth Games Qualifier 2022
Sports Bulletin ISLAMABAD:-Bangladesh and Scotland registered wins against Kenya and Malaysia respectively on day two of the CWG2022 Qualifier. Bangladesh romped to an 80-run win over Kenya before Scotland overcame Malaysia by 31 runs on the second day of the ICC Commonwealth Games Qualifier 2022 at the Kinrara Oval in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday. Bangladesh beat Kenya by 80 runs An unbeaten partnership of 75 for the seventh wicket between Salma Khatun (33 off 32 balls) and Ritu Moni (39 of 34) propelled Bangladesh to 125 before Player of the Match Nahida Akter broke the back of the Kenyan run chase with impressive figures of five for 12. Kenya won the toss and elected to bowl in their first match of the five-team tournament, being played to decide one remaining slot at the Commonwealth Games 2022 in Birmingham. Australia, Barbados, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa have already qualified. Lavendah Idambo delivered a nervous first over, leaking 16 runs, including two boundaries and three wide deliveries. However, she hit back with the wicket of opener Shamima Sultana before Mercyline Ochieng trapped Nigar Sultana in front and dismissed Rumana Ahmed first ball. Murshida Khatun struck a few boundaries to the off side fence before getting a leading edge to Queentor Abel who made no mistake, taking the catch off her own bowling. In her very next over, Abel picked up the scalps of both Sobhana Mostary and Fargana Hoque to leave Bangladesh reeling at 50 for six at the end of nine overs. A period of consolidation followed as Ritu Moni and Salma Khatun opted to rotate the strike and play out Abel’s remaining overs. After getting their eye in, they accelerated the run rate with Ritu Moni lofting Sarah Bhakita into mid-wicket for a boundary. They picked up 30 runs in the final three overs to lift Bangladesh to a respectable 125. In reply, Kenya’s innings never got going. Veronica Abuga edged Salma Khatun through to keeper Shamima Sultana in the first over. Bowling the second over, Suraya Azmim trapped Queentor Abel in front for nine. A brilliant direct hit from Murshida Khatun caught Sylvia Kinyua short of her crease before Kenyan skipper Margarte Ngoche was trapped in front by a Nahida Akter arm ball. Akter was able to extract turn from the wicket squaring up Venasa Ooko with a delivery that spun in before straightening to clip her off stump. Amidst the chaos, Sharon Juma’s 24 off 20 balls was the only resistance of note from Kenya’s batting line-up as they fell 80 runs short of Bangladesh’s total. Bangladesh captain Nigar Sultana was all praise for the partnership between Salma Khatun and Ritu Moni. “How they batted in that situation, controlling the pressure. It was absolutely wonderful to watch,” she said. Kenya Skipper Margaret Ngoche was frank in her assessment of Kenya’s batting. “The main areas that we really need to improve on is patience, we were really in a hurry to get runs, even when wickets were falling we did not give ourselves time to recover,” she said. Player of the Match Nahida Akter kept things simple and executed her plans. “From the beginning my plan was to bowl to my strength as much as I can,” she said. Scotland beat Malaysia by 31 runs Kathryn Bryce’s unbeaten 62 helped Scotland post 148 before Katherine Fraser took four for 19 to deliver a 31-run win over Malaysia. After winning the toss and electing to bat, Scotland enjoyed a productive Powerplay. Sarah Bryce clipped a couple of boundaries off her toes with fellow opener Abbi Aitken-Drummond joining in the party. However, left-arm spinner Arianna Natasya dismissed Sarah in her very first over to put a lid on the scoring. Scotland skipper Kathryn Bryce then walked in at three, putting on a 63-run partnership with Aitken-Drummond. Just as it looked like Scotland was pushing a total in the region of 160, they lost four quick wickets. Nik Atiela had both Aitken-Drummond and the aggressive Katie McGill stumped before Mas Elysa chipped in with a pair of wickets for herself. Kathryn Bryce, however, held strong, and continued to pepper the leg side boundary. Her seventh delivery came off the final delivery of the innings as Malaysia were set a target of 149. In reply, Malaysia came storming out of the blocks. Three cover drives from Winifred Duraisingam set the tone for the innings with Wan Julia joining in the fun, walloping left-armer Rachel Slater for four down the ground. However, the tide turned when off-spinner Katherine Fraser was introduced into the attack. Wan Julia chipped a catch to Aitken-Drummond before Duraisingam played inside one to lose her off stump in the very same over. Soon after, Yusrina Yakoop was trapped in front before Mas Elysa lobbed a catch to Kathryn Bryce for Abtaha Maqsood’s first wicket. Leg-spinner Maqsood grabbed her second wicket when she trapped Nur Ilya in front for a duck. When Ainna Hamizah was dismissed by Hannah Rainey, Malaysia were reeling at 69 for seven. However, Intan Jaafar and Nur Zulaika would put on a 45-run partnership with every one of their scoring shots cheered by a vociferous Malysia dugout. The hosts ended on 117 for eight. Malaysia skipper Duraisingam was especially impressed with Malaysia’s ability to keep Scotland’s batters in check through the second half of the first innings. “Yes, Scotland did get off to a good start, but I’m happy that we restricted them,” she said. Scottish captain Kathryn Bryce was pleased with the eventual result but felt that Scotland let Malaysia’s batters stretch the game out on the back of Katherine Fraser’s impressive four-wicket haul. “We didn't execute with the ball at the top of the innings and let them get away, but Katherine Fraser bowled very well again to get us back on top,” she said. Skipper Bryce was also awarded the Player of the Match award, admitting she enjoyed the conditions for batting. “The surface was really good again today with a fast outfield. The ball has been keeping slightly low, but you get rewarded for playing strong shots,” she said. Brief Scores: Bangladesh beat Kenya by 80 runs. Bangladesh 125/6 in 20 Overs; Kenya 45 All Out in 12.4 Overs. Player of the Match: Nahida Akter Scotland beat Malaysia by 31 runs. Scotland 148/5 in 20 Overs; Malaysia 117/8 in 20 Overs.

Rizwan v Sarfaraz: face-off of two best wicketkeepers in HBL PSL 7
Sports Report LAHORE:-Pakistan boast a rich cricketing history and over decades the country has produced top-class wicketkeepers. Their athleticism and outstanding glovework has left an indelible mark on the game and earned them recognition wherever the game is played. This HBL Pakistan Super League will once again see two of the best contemporary wicketkeeper-batters from Pakistan lead their sides as Sultans of Multan will march behind Mohammad Rizwan and Gladiators of Quetta behind Sarfaraz Ahmed. Rizwan has had a superlative 2021. He rewrote the history books by becoming the only batter in the history of the game to score over a thousand T20I runs in a calendar year, smashing 1,326 runs at a staggering average of 73.66 and a strike rate of 134.89. He spanked 119 fours and 42 maximums – both the most for any international batter that year – and scored his maiden century and 12 half-centuries. His extraordinary run earned him PCB’s Most Valuable Cricket and T20I Cricketer of the Year awards for 2021. He joined the Sultans’ camp in the 2021 edition and was quick to make a mark by leading them to their maiden title. Sarfaraz has been at the forefront of Pakistan’s T20 revolution, leading the side to record series wins and guiding them to the no.1 spot in the ICC T20I Team Rankings in the process. It is because of his outstanding record at the helm for both Pakistan and Quetta Gladiators that he remains the only player to be leading his franchise since the outset of the league. He has the seventh most runs (1,189 at 31.28 at a strike rate of 128.26) in the tournament. Multan Sultans made their entry in the HBL PSL festival in 2018. After struggling to leave a mark in their first two seasons, Sultans emerged as a force in 2020 – the first time an entire edition of the tournament was played in Pakistan – when they finished the group stage as the best side with six wins, the most for any side, from eight completed matches. In the last edition, with Rizwan at the helm, Sultans made history by bagging their maiden HBL PSL title with a fascinating win over Peshawar Zalmi in the final at Abu Dhabi. Quetta Gladiators have been one of the most consistent sides. They are one of the three sides to have won more than 50 per cent matches in the tournament’s history. They played the finals of the first two editions; before bagging the title in 2019. Their returns in the last two editions have not done justice to the expectations of theirs and league’s fans, and the Sarfaraz-led unit will be eager to overturn their fortunes when the seventh HBL PSL kicks off in Karachi on 27 January. Multan Sultans and Quetta Gladiators have faced-off seven times with the latter coming out victorious four times. They will meet on 31 January and 18 February. Quetta Gladiators’ captain Sarfaraz Ahmed: “The HBL PSL has proved to be an exceptional platform in unveiling the national talent and Quetta Gladiators have been blessed to have extraordinary youngsters. It has been a delightful experience to lead Quetta Gladiators for the last six years. There have been ups and downs, but the team has stuck together in tough times and every player has backed each other. “Multan Sultans have been on a roll in the last two seasons, but I am sure we will be able to stop them in HBL PSL 7. They emerged as an attacking and modern-day cricketing unit under Rizwan, who continues to score runs and do wonders for whoever he plays. He is a great addition to Pakistan cricket and his stratospheric 2021 has made each and every Pakistani proud. Multan Sultans’ captain Mohammad Rizwan: “I joined the Sultans’ camp last year and it has been a great experience to work with such an exciting bunch of cricketers. It is certainly a huge responsibility to lead a side like Multan Sultans, but the effort that everyone, from the players to support staff, put in make my job easy. I am eager to do well in this season and stretch my last year’s form. “Quetta Gladiators are a tough side and they can defeat any team. We have immense respect for them and are looking forward to play them. Squads (in alphabetical order): Multan Sultans - Mohammad Rizwan (c), Abbas Afridi, Amir Azmat, Anwar Ali, Asif Afridi, Blessing Muzarabani, David Willey, Ihsanullah, Imran Khan Snr, Imran Tahir, Khushdil Shah, Odean Smith/Johnson Charles, Rilee Rossouw, Rizwan Hussain, Rovman Powell/Dominic Drakes, Rumman Raees, Shahnawaz Dahani, Shan Masood, Sohaib Maqsood and Tim David Quetta Gladiators – Sarfaraz Ahmed (c), Abdul Wahid Bangalzai, Ahsan Ali, Ben Duckett, Dan Lawrence, Ghulam Mudassar, Iftikhar Ahmed, James Faulkner, James Vince/Will Smeed, Jason Roy/Shimron Hetmyer, Khurram Shehzad, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohammad Nawaz, Muhammad Ashar Qureshi, Naseem Shah, Naveen ul Haq/Luke Wood, Noor Ahmad/Ali Imran, Shahid Afridi, Sohail Tanvir and Umar Akmal

In other major movements, Zimbabwe’s Sean Williams has advanced eight places to 40th after scores of 100 and 40 and Sri Lanka batter Kariyawasa Asalanka’s knocks of 71 and 23 have helped him move up 16 places to 52nd.
Victory is more satisfying than disappointment of missing a century, says Rory Ervine
Bipin Dani The father of Zimbabwe's captain Craig Ervine has been following the ongoing ODI series against Sri Lanka on the internet as there is no live telecast of these matches in his country.  Rory Ervine was disappointed when Craig could not complete the century in the second ODI. "Missing a century is always disappointing but winning the game is rather more important", he said over the telephone from Harare.   He was bowled in Nervous Nineties. "Out is out, whether bowled or caught. It is the same. It was unfortunate. I think the batter has to keep playing the best he can for the sake of the team", he added. Incidentally, Craig is born in a sports loving family. Father played First Class matches, two brothers-Sean and Ryan and uncle Neil also played cricket. "Having family members to play cricket helped Craig to hone his skills", the dad added.         Craig almost had a hand amputated in his early teens following a freak accident where he slipped and fell on broken glass in his family's living room. His mum Judy, who is still a nurse, immediately helped his son from excessive bleeding. The injury required a three-hour reconstructive operation to his right hand.
