Pak vs Eng: Ben Stokes to donate match fee for entire Test series to flood victims

Dawn.com
November 28, 2022

England Test captain Ben Stokes announced on Monday that he will donate his entire match fee for the upcoming series against Pakistan to the victims of flood and rebuilding the affected areas.

Earlier this year, rain-induced floods had inflicted an estimated loss of $3 billion on the country, caused over 1,700 deaths and displaced eight million people.

Stokes, in a tweet on Monday, announced to donate his match fees for the floods cause, adding that the game had given him a lot in his life and he feels its only right to give something back that goes far beyond cricket.

“Hopefully this donation can go towards the rebuilding of areas of Pakistan most affected by the flooding,” Stokes said. “It was sad to see how floods had devastated Pakistan earlier this year that had significant impact on the country and the people.”

Commenting on the upcoming matches against Pakistan, he said it was great to be in the country for the first time to play the historic series.

“To be back here after 17 years as a Test side is very exciting,” Stokes said. “There is a sense of responsibility amongst the playing and support group and to be here is special.”

In August, the Pakistan cricket team donated win bonuses worth Rs4,625,000 ($54,400) to the floods relief effort in the country.

The Pakistan Cricket Board had said in a statement that all players and officials had agreed to pledge half of their personal bonuses from the victory over England in the third Test last week.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif appreciated Stokes’ gesture of donating his fees.

The premier, in a tweet, said that the cricketer’s gesture “epitomises the great British tradition of philanthropy” and that the “empathy for suffering humanity is the greatest of all virtues.”

Shaheen a ‘big loss’ for Pakistan, says England coach McCullum

The absence through injury of fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi is a “big loss” to Pakistan in the three-match Test series starting this week, England head coach Brendon McCullum said Monday.
The lanky left-arm pacer — Pakistan’s main wicket-taker in all three formats — was left out of the series following a knee injury sustained during the Twenty20 World Cup final in Australia earlier this month.

The 22-year-old also had his appendix removed earlier this month.

England practiced for the first time at Rawalpindi stadium on Monday, a day after arriving in Pakistan on their first Test tour since 2005.

The first Test starts on Thursday.

McCullum said Shaheen had made huge progress since he played with and then coached the fast bowler during the first two editions of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) in 2016 and 2017.

“I know him pretty well. He’s a wonderful bowler and he’s turned into a fine leader for Pakistani cricket,” McCullum told a press conference. “Shaheen’s obviously a big loss.”

In his absence, Pakistan will rely on young Naseem Shah as well as Mohammad Wasim Junior and Haris Rauf — who haven’t played at the Test level.

But McCullum praised Pakistan’s fast-bowling talent.

“You look at their team sheet and you see talent… you see some that might not be developed talent, but it’s talent.

“You need to respect that, and you need to find a way to be able to be well-researched and well-planned about what’s going to come at you,” he added.

England were due to visit Pakistan last year but pulled out a week after New Zealand abandoned their limited-over series on security grounds minutes before the first match.

They then re-scheduled the tour in two phases, having visited Pakistan for a Twenty20 series two months ago.

McCullum, who took over as England coach last year, admitted Pakistan would be strong at home.

“It’s a very good Pakistan squad, it’s well-rounded,” said McCullum, under who England have won six out of seven Tests.

“It’s got some experience and some youth — with both batting and bowling — and they’ll be a tough challenge. “We know we’ll have to play well if we’re going to be successful.”

The second Test is in Multan (December 9-13) and the third in Karachi (December 17-21).

Muhammad Ali & Abrar Ahmed have got to be in the playing 11. Muhammad Ali because he is the only fast bowler in this squad who can bowl long spells & give you 16 to 18 over a day. Haris & Naseem just can’t do that.
Abrar is just on fire at the moment & I don’t see England batters figuring him out before this series is over.
