Shreyas Iyer, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar named in stand-by group Shreyas Iyer, who recently recovered from a shoulder injury after surgery, has not found a place in the top 15 but he is part of the 3 stand-by group. Deepak Chahar, who has been a constant member of the limited-overs squad, is also part of the stand-by group. Meanwhile, Shardul Thakur, who played a crucial all-round role in India's victory over England in the Oval Test, is also part of the stand-by group.

Pakistan national team coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis resigned from their positions with the national team on Monday due to citing bio-bubble fatigue The decision helps to raise the eyebrows, since there is only one month left for T20 World Cup. Misbah and Waqar had one year left on their contracts after being appointed in September 2019. Notably, on Monday Pakistan announced their squad for the T20 World Cup and home series against New Zealand and England. Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis reported their decisions to the PCB on Monday.Meanwhile, Pakistan has appointed former spinner Saqlain Mushtaq and former all-rounder Abdul Razzak as temporary coaches for New Zealand Series. The Black Caps team, currently in Bangladesh, will play 3 ODI and 5 T20I matches in September and October. The Pakistani team is scheduled to assemble for their training camp on September 8. The Pakistan Cricket Board has confirmed that the support staff for the T20 World Cup will be appointed in the near future.'Don't think I am in the right frame of mind for upcoming challenges'Misbah-ul-Haq, who had to be quarantined in the West Indies for an extended period after testing positive for Covid-19, admitted that the timing of his decision was not right but he had to take the call to spend time with his family. "The quarantine in Jamaica post the West Indies series provided me with an opportunity to reflect on the past 24 months as well as the schedule for international cricket ahead. Considering that I would have had to continue to spend considerable time away from my family and that too in a bio-secure environment, I have decided to step down from the role," Misbah said, as quoted by a PCB statement. "I understand that the timing may not be ideal, but I don't think I'm in the right frame of mind for the upcoming challenges and it makes sense for someone new to step in and take the side forward."Also Read- ICC T20 World Cup 2021 complete schedule: India to face Pakistan on October 24 Decided to step down together: Waqar YounisWaqar Younis said he decided to step down after Misbah communicated his decision to him. “After Misbah informed me of his decision and his future plans, it was easy for me to resign as we had walked into the roles together, we worked collectively as a pair and now also step down together. "Working with Pakistani bowlers, including young people, has been more satisfying because now they are started to show progress. Bio secure safe environments in the last 16 months have had their impact, something we have never seen during our playing days.".

How to reschedule T20 World Cup? ICC committee debates in BCCI's absence

MUMBAI: Now that the ICC T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia this year between October and November, the question to be asked in the rounds is how and where this edition is modified between 2021 and 2023.A day after TOI reported that the postponement of the 2020 edition is a certainty, and an official announcement on the doorstep, the International Criminal Court's Financial and Trade Affairs Committee (FMCA) met in a teleconference with ICC CEO Manu Sawhney presiding over it.Among other things on the agenda, the main debate has revolved around how and where this year's T20 World Cup is being modified, one that will be lost in the epidemic that has caused global cricket, like any other sport around the world. . .“It was proposed for the first time to postpone this year’s edition (World Cup T20) to February and March of next year. This is no longer possible. Then it was suggested the other day to allow Australia to host the 2021 version and informed sources of events told TOI that India should do so in February and March 2022.However, it is understood that certain members of the FMCA, a committee chaired by the President of the Pakistan Cricket Council, Ehsan Mani, opposed the proposal.The logic behind the objection?If the T20 World Cup is organized in October / November next year, how can the T20 World Cup be organized in February / March? "Do we say that the team that wins the 2021 tournament will remain a champion for only five or six months? What's the point of that?" sources added.First, the British Chamber of Commerce and Industry did not exchange its views on the matter. Second, given BCCI revenue at stake, as they host the 2021 version, their views on this issue have not been researched yet. "If all countries are concerned about the epidemic affecting income cycles, then it is so for India. The other side is that India is being hit, which means everyone will be affected by it. The views of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry are very necessary," industry officials say.The FMCA, led by Mani,  as its independent director ICC Independent Director Indra Nooyi,President of Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chris Nenzani, President of the European Central Bank Colin Graves, President of Cricket Australia Earl Eddings, and Vice President of the International Criminal Court  Imran Khawaja. The ICC President Shashank Manohar and CEO Sawhney are also on the commission by holding other important positions in the governing body."Two years ago it was adequately confirmed that India would not have a single representative on this committee. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has raised this as a matter of principle in the past, but thanks to the administrative deadlock that leaked due to court issues, India has not been able to follow this vigorously, " add those in the know.Why should the Indian Cricket Council agree to host the tournament in 2022 in February-March and give up hosting rights in 2021?"To suit Cricket Australia?BCCI is already making sure Cricket Australia is not losing by making sure India makes tours there this year for the test series. If the International Criminal Court and Cricket Australia want India to compel it in 2021 by agreeing to host in 2022, the Chamber of Commerce will be fair in claiming sufficient reasons and seeking a fair share of the obligation in return, "says follow-up developments. Also, why would the station agree? Star India coincides with ICC news anchor, as well as the Indian Premier League (IPL), which takes place annually in April and May. "Why would they agree to accept successive T20 events? It is not recommended to play in a window from October to November because it does not clash with other features in the same format," the sources added.Read More: India May Tour South Africa In August For Three-Match T20I SeriesArticle Source : Times of India

This means that the women's semi-finals are in SCG and that both rivers receive the same role, and are held in MCG. "How has Thailand progressed?Thailand is actually one of the shape teams.
