Mian Azmat Hussain was born on 22nd August 1947. He started his education at St. Paul School and Islamia College. Later on he qualified as a Chartered Accountant from UK. Mian Azmat has been a Vice President for KCCA on several occasions including treasurer. Mian Azmat promoted other games also like Judo, Karate, Tak Wando. Mian is very famous in all over Pakistan regarding his financial and technical support to organize cricket and run one of the most prestigious clubs “Mian Azmat Professional Cricket Club” and gave a lot of super starts to Pakistan Cricket. Mian Azmat Professionals invited players from all over Pakistan to play in the club. The another patron of his club was Ansar Javed Toor who was born on January 04, 1951 started his education in Govt. High School Punjab and B.Sc. from Karachi. He flew for American Air Force subsidiary Civil Air Petrol in USA. These two gentle man also with Naseer Pasha (Manager, Coordinator MAP), the main source for running the club introduced the legends of Cricket in International Arena without his innovations and enthusiasm MAP would have never achieved the greatness it did. We caught them at Karachi Gymkhana and discussed the lot of cricket and tribute his services for this country.



Mian Azmat Hussain said in 1981 we made one cricket club with the help of six founding members, Capt. Amjad Hussain Faizi, Ansar Javed Toor (Faizi),Mian Shoukat Hussain, Capt. Aijaz ul Haque, Ateed Riaz, called Thursday (Jumairati) Cricket Club. We booked KPI ground and started playing cricket. After that we started net practice in our office plot.Former Sports Minister Dr.Muhammad Ali Shah, Dr.Faiz Muhammad Khan, Qazi Shabbir and various other prominent people played in our team as well also supported MAP club. We started Mian Azmat Professional Club. When we didn’t pay any player at that time but we pormate talent for introducing a healthy competition for young cricketers to promote young talent which was provided by GREAT Ishaque Patel (Advisor MAP) with his keen eye and observation. Our only motive was to produce quality cricketers and we succeeded in that. The only way to improve cricket is to pick the right talent without being bias but self centered motivation is destroying Pakistan Cricket. Our selection criteria at all levels is very weak you can imagine that Leg and Offspinners are the backbone of Indo Pak Cricket. If there action was wrong how they come to International Cricket. Umpires skills from grassroots level till top are not satisfactory. The down fall comes to cricket because our legends want to work only for money which incidentally with respect and fame was given to them because of Pakistan . They don’t want to transfer their talent to groom the young generation. Closing of departments is destroying our Cricket Culture. Professional cricketers based on their salaries how can they survive without income. I personally suggest that Prime Minister should ask Cricket Authorities to revert back to Departmental Cricket and put more emphasis on schools, colleges,universities and club cricket. Mian Azmat and A.J. Toor said discrimination with minorities in Cricket is unbearable. Players motivation is only to play for his country. The darkest era of our cricket is that not a single minority player is selected in any region. There is a need of law to pick two talented minority cricketers in the squads of all regions. Stupid commercialism is dangerous for the game. PCB needs to give respect to former cricketers and invite them in all matches so more crowd will come, see and meet their heroes. Mian Azmat Professionals is the pioneer of Karachi Gymkhana Ramzan Tournament but we are not even invited in the prize distribution ceremony anymore. PSL is not a long time beneficial for Pakistan Cricket because we get only few players for this league and still they do not fulfill the expectations, as well as the good talent is being wasted. We need to establish cricket to bring in people like good Administrator Arif Ali Abbasi and good cricketers, Nadeem Yousuf, Sajid Abbasi and so many others. Wrong decision to removed Sarfraz Ahmed from all sorts of crickets at once he should have been removed if necessary slowly, another wrong decision taken by PCB is appointing Misbah Manager & Coach. Why? Don’t we have other professional cricketers in country to hold and accept the responsibilities without being bias.

Mohammad Abbas

Karachi(Cliff News)Fast bowler Mohammad Abbas took three wickets to guide Multan Sultans to a convincing seven-wicket win over Lahore Qalandars in the HBL PSL in Karachi on Monday.Abbas finished with 3-22 keeping Lahore down to 140-8 in their 20 overs before opener Shan Masood struck 25-ball 48 with eight boundaries and a six to steer Multan to the target in just 12.3 overs.The win gave Multan fifth position in the points table with six points in ten matches, a finish they also achieved last year while Lahore’s fate could not change as they finished fifth and last in the first two editions and sixth and last both this and the preceding year.Lahore managed just six points in ten matches and had an inferior net run-rate than Multan.Masood added 50 for the second-wicket with Johnson Charles (25-ball 41 not out with five boundaries and two sixes) to steady the chase after Multan lost Umar Siddiq for 13 at the total of 20.When Masood got out, Multan needed 18 more which they scored without any hiccup with some 45 balls to spare.Abbas said he stuck to the basics which brought him success in Tests.”I was injured and after my rehab I got my chance,” said Abbas. “I did my wholehearted effort and stuck to my basics and that gave me success.”Multan skipper Shoaib Malik said his team did not do justice with their talent.”Overall we played good cricket but luck was not on our side,” said Malik. “We lacked that winning ratio in the tournament and did not grab the crunch positions.”Lahore skipper Fakhar Zaman admitted it was a tough tournament for his team.”Yes, it was tough and especially when you lose so many matches,” said Fakhar. “We did learn and got some good bowlers but the end wasn’t ideal.”Lahore were led by opener Fakhar’s 36-ball 53 which had eight boundaries and a six but Lahore kept losing wickets and could never get the impetus for a fighting total.Off-spinner Chris Green, who took 1-25 in his four overs, provided Multan with the breakthrough when he dismissed Rikki Wessels for four before Abbas took over.Abbas celebrated his inclusion in the Pakistan team for the ODI series against Australia starting next week by dismissing Sohail Akhtar (five), David Wiese (30) and Saad Ali (eight) in an incisive spell of fast bowling.Crowd favourite Shahid Afridi marked his first-ever presence in a HBL PSL match staged in Pakistan with a spell of two for 18 off his four overs.Wiese tried his best to lift the innings during his 22-ball knock which included two sixes and as many boundaries. Recently arrived Asela Gunaratne also chipped in with a brisk 12 but lost his wicket when Lahore needed him.Quetta Gladiators topped the table with 14 points while Peshawar Zalmi — who face Karachi Kings in the last league match later Monday — are second with 12 points. Islamabad United are third with ten in ten and Karachi are fourth, also with ten points in nine matches.Multan Sultans beat Lahore Qalandars by seven wickets in HBL PSL

Peshawar Zalmi thumped Karachi Kings by 61 runs in ending phase of PSL


Karachi(Cliff News)Kamran Akmal smashed a robust half-century while the pace quartet led by Hasan Ali shared nine wickets as Peshawar Zalmi thumped Karachi Kings by 61 runs at the National Stadium, Karachi on Monday, ending the league phase with number one position in the HBL Pakistan Super League 2019 edition.Kamran scored a fiery 48-ball 86 studded with five well timed sixes and ten boundaries and took a leading part in the team’s record opening stand in HBL PSL history of 137 with Imam-ul-Haq (40-ball 59) to steer the team to 203-7 in 20 overs.Karachi Kings, who had already qualified for the play-offs but had an outside chance of finishing in the top two, were lifted by a 37-ball 71 (seven fours and four sixes) by Colin Ingram before they folded for 142 in 16.2 overs.Hasan led the Zalmi pace attack with 3-15 while Wahab  (2-19), Tymal Mills (2-25) and Sameen Gul (2-49) shared the spoils.The win lifted Peshawar to 14 points from their ten matches and with a superior net run-rate they finished top of the six-team table, followed by Quetta Gladiators with 14 in ten games, Zalmi also topped the round stage in both 2016 and 2017 HBL PSL editions.Karachi Kings finished with ten points and at fourth spot while Islamabad United are third with ten points in ten matches.Earlier, Multan Sultans beat Lahore Qalanadars by seven wickets to finish fifth while Lahore were consigned to sixth and last.Peshawar hit Karachi hard through their fast bowlers right from the outset.Karachi lost Colin Munro (nought), Babar Azam(13) and Liam Livingstone (six) by the fourth over as the pace attack once again proved potent.Munro was trapped leg-before by Hasan for his second duck of the HBL PSL season and has a measly 63 runs in seven innings. Babar fell to a miscued drive off Sameen Gul while Livingstone fell to Tymal Mills.Ingram added 43 for the fourth-wicket with Ben Dunk (six) but the target was too big for him to handle without any support. Ingram holed out off Mills in the 14th over. Only Imad Wasim offered any resistance with a 30-run contribution.With three wickets added to his tournament tally, Hasan leads the bowling chart of HBL PSL with 21 in ten matches.Man-of-the-match Kamran Akmal said his aim was to be positive.”It was a big total and that was because we were positive,” said Kamran. “We knew that we want to bat long and then credit to the bowlers who defended well because it wasn’t easy defending on this pitch.”Peshawar skipper Darren Sammy said Kamran is his match winner.”The way Kamran batted it was great,” said Sammy. “He is our match winner and once he took us to 200 it was up to the bowlers and Hasan and Wahab are bowling so well together that it paved our win.”Karachi captain Imad praised Kamran.”The way Kamran batted, he took away the match,” said Imad. “He timed the ball so sweetly and it became tough for us to stop him.”Peshawar, put into bat by Karachi Kings, maintained a ten run average throughout their innings as Kamran cut loose right from the start. He smashed three boundaries in the second over by Usman Shinwari to hint what was coming from him.Imam matched his illustrious partner with three hits to the fence off Sohail Khan in the third over while Kamran knocked a four and six each off Imad Wasim and Umer Khan before hitting two sixes and as many fours off Umar as Peshawar raced to 125 by 12 overs.It was part timer Munro who finally gave Karachi a breakthrough with the wicket of Kamran, caught in the deep. Pollard hit two sixes in the same over before failing to Munro.Imam, who hit seven boundaries and a six, became one of Mohammad Amir’s three wickets who finished with figures of 3-24 amidst a run feast by Peshawar.The league has a day’s rest on Tuesday, with Peshawar taking on Quetta Gladiators in the first qualifier on Wednesday.
