    Many a time I have found some cricket related info on twitter/facebook. I never felt like creating a thread for it as it wasn't that big. So for smaller topics we can use this thread to inform stuff. I'll start of...


    Rocket fell in front of Umer Gul's house in a canal; No casualities. Umer Gul's brother confirms the news #Cricket via Mansoor Ali Khan

    @shahzadtirmizi: Sri Lanka have named five uncapped players in their provisional 30-man squad for the ICC #Champions trophy. #CT2013 #Cricket

    @shahzadtirmizi: South Africa's Wayne #Parnell surrenders in Mumbai court in drug case, gets bail. He was one of the accused in last year's Juhu rave party.

    Keep this thread updated even with the smallest of cricket news

    @criclens: Asia Cup to be played from February 24 to March 7. However, no decision on host yet. Our news story: http://t.co/1pKn4h70VM

    This is in 2014 with India most likely the host. PCB have sent a request to host it though

    Junaid should be category A now, and since YK and Afridi don't play all formats they should be B.

    According to unonfirmed reports Junaid will be in "A" but I disagree. He should be given "B" atleast one more year.

    Mohsin and Waqar had a chance, and what coaching has Zaheer Abbas done since he retired that he should suddenly be made Pak coach? Also what has Hafeez done wrong in T20's? It's test matches where he's being questioned... Butt really was a clown. Turns out he still is.

    Umar Akmal fined again

    Pakistan batsman Umar Akmal, who is playing the ongoing President’s Cup for Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL), has been fined full match fess for showing dissent at umpire’s decision.

    In the match played today at Gaddafi Stadium Lahore between SNGPL and Port Qasim Authority (PQA), Umar Akmal stood ground and showed dissent to the umpire Zameer Haider who adjudged him LBW off Mohammad Talha’s bowling. The match referee Khalid Niazi fined him 7000 Rupees, his full match fees.

    Akmal didn’t only stand ground to the on-field decision, he went back angrily and stopped short of throwing bat in the dressing room. The most surprising thing was he, with the pads on, entered in match referee’s room to complaint against the on field decision by Zameer Haider.

    It is second instance this season that he has been fined for disciplinary reasons. He was also fined 50% of his match fees during the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy and since it was his second offence the referee fined him full match fees.

    The SNGPL coach Basit Ali decided to appeal against the fine but Akmal hadn’t left any room for he had already pleaded guilty and accepted the charge.

    Akmal was promoted up the order at number 4 and scored a sluggish 18 off 36 balls. SNGPL scored 238 which PQA easily chased in 44th over, handing SNGPL first loss in the tournament.
