Tahir-ul-Qadri asks Queen to intervene

After grueling days in Supreme Court of Pakistan, Canadian National, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has appealed to Canadian Queen Elizabeth II for intervention and stopping his continuous disgrace, and off course Reconstitution of the Election Commission of Pakistan.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri failed to establish that he had the right to knock at the doors of the Supreme Court and seek reconstitution of the Election Commission of Pakistan. And in rather brusque manner, the Supreme Court threw out Dr Qadri’s Petition.

However, as a last resort Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has now appealed to British Queen Elizabeth II for intervention and stopping his continuous disgrace at the hands of Higher Courts in Pakistan.

Dr Qadri further asked the Queen to help in reconstituting the Election Commission of Pakistan.

Tehzeeb Ali takes Six-For against South Africa

Pakistani Pace Bowler, Tehzeeb Ali took Six-For in only his Second Test against South Africa at Centurion.

Tehzeeb (Rahat) Ali didn't had the best of debuts at Johannesburg, and now playing in only his Second Test, his inexperience showed and his bowling deteriorated. It was almost an injustice as he grabbed Six Wickets for 127 runs, conceding Six No-Balls and Six Wides. Furthermore, his shelling of an absolute sitter off AB de Villiers at Fine-Leg made him a laughing stock, but he silenced the doubters with a Six-For that ended South Africa's First Innings at 409. With debutant Ehsan Adil struggling with a leg injury, Saeed Ajmal understandably not at his most dangerous this early in the Test, and Mohammad Irfan tiring towards the end of the innings, Tehzeeb was the most successful in an inexperienced Pakistan Attack.

Proposed & Postponed Super League

The Proposed Super League, Pakistan's franchise-based Twenty20 Tournament, has been Indefinitely Postponed for the organizers to sort out Logistical Issues.

The PSL, which is run by the Pakistan Cricket Board, was supposed to be held between 26th March 26 and 7th April in Pakistan but a PCB statement said the delay was to give investors more time to submit bids and also to avoid scheduling conflicts with other cricket tournaments.

"The decision to move away from the planned dates of the PSL is an extremely difficult one but for the benefit of all stakeholders and the League" PSL Managing Director Salman Sarwar Butt said. "The PCB management has decided to reschedule the event and move it to a period where there are fewer scheduling conflicts, and the stakeholders get enough time to develop their Business Plans".

"Over fifteen (15) Potential Franchise Buyers, around ten (10) Top Broadcasters and various Potential Sponsors from large business houses have collected the bid documents and shown extremely keen interest in acquiring respective rights" Butt said. "However, there are several other investors who would like us to give them more time for our various rights".

For security reasons, there were suggestions to stage the PSL outside Pakistan but the PCB decided to keep it in the country, in line with the league's stated objective of "Improving the image of the country and revival of International Cricket".

Let's hope the Postponement of Proposed Super League ends soon.
