Kirstenís travel company

Cricket Digest

Mumbai: Former South Africa batsman Gary Kirsten has commenced a new innings by floating a travel and tours company, following the demand for coaching at his cricket academy in Cape Town and Durban.

“The idea was conceived to start a Travel and Tours division to offer individuals and teams a complete travel package,” Kirsten said.

PSL future

Karachi: The PCB has said that time constraint was one of the main reasons for cancelling the process to award wholesale rights of its planned Pakistan Super League (PSL). A senior official said that the bidding process would resume in two to three months and the plan was to now launch the T20 franchise-based event sometime in December, 2015.

Ajmal case

Karachi: Pakistani cricket authorities are prepared for the worst possible scenario in the Saeed Ajmal bowling action case. “The worst we are expecting is that Saeed may be stopped from playing and be told to remodel his bowling action. If that happens, we anticipate it will take around 45 to 60 days for him to complete this process of remodelling his action and get it approved by the ICC,” a Board source said.

BCB plan

Dhaka: The BCB is planning to host the third edition of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) early next year, according a cricinfo.com report. It is trying to slot it in between the World Cup and the IPL.

“The board thought that it won’t be wise to hold a T20 tournament in December this year as it will be right ahead of the one-day World Cup. So we have decided April is the best option,” BCB president Nazmul Hassan said.

Sammy upbeat

Basseterre: West Indies captain Darren Sammy is promising his team will be firing on all cylinders when they face Bangladesh in the one-off T20 International on Thursday. “The side is powerful, and once we fire on all cylinders, we're always going to be a destructive force,” Sammy said on the eve of the match. West Indies will tour India after this series in October.
