‘Walking wounded’ Sammy the heroin Peshawar Zalmi’s thrilling victory The West Indian had busted his knee while bowling but turned the match around with a brilliant cameo Darren Sammy can now be called a ‘Khan.’ The jovial West Indian, a walking wounded after having busted his right knee while bowling, showed Pathan-like qualities to nick a thriller against the Quetta Gladiators and infuse life into Peshawar Zalmi’s title defence of the HBL Pakistan Super League. Hobbling in at No.7 and with the game heading down the wire, the two-time T20 World Cup-winning captain smoked two sixes and a boundary from four deliveries to sneak Peshawar Zalmi home, with five wickets and two balls to spare, just before midnight, on Thursday. Until then, Zalmi’s innings had almost mirrored that of the Quetta Gladiators at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium as they were in it and, sometimes, not in it. Until, Sammy arrived. Peshawar Zalmi had arrived in Sharjah, well rested and recovered after their exertions in Dubai, while the Quetta Gladiators were playing for the second consecutive night. Quetta Gladiators made one change to their line-up, bringing in Rilee Rossouw for Mahmudullah, while leg spinner Ibtisam Sheikh made way for fellow 19-year-old […]

Sridevi, husband Boney Kapoor and her younger daughter Khushi were in Dubai to attend a family wedding.

We only wish it was one of those nasty rumours doing the rounds. Our condolences to the bereaved family. Our heart goes out especially to her kids Janhvi and Khushi and husband Boney Kapoor.

Confident Karachi brace for “clash of the Titans” with Lahore DUBAI: Boost up by back to back successes a confident Karachi Kings brace for wounded Lahore Qalandars, hoping another win could bring them closer to the play-off of the Pakistan Super League in the only match at Dubai stadium on Monday. Karachi Kings improved their record against last year’s finalists Quetta Gladiators and Peshawar Zalmi with 19-run and five-wicket victories to get a kick-start to the PSL 3, raising hopes of a better finish than their fourth in the inaugural edition and third last year. Skipper Imad Wasim warned the league was still in early stages. “We are not getting carried away as this is an early stage of the league,” said Imad after his team made a heavy weather of a modest 132-run target on Sunday night. “We should have won two three overs before so that’s an area where we have to be cautious.” Karachi Kings will also be cautious of their opponents Lahore who will be looking for a strong performance after two back to back defeats, by 43 runs against Multan Sultans and by nine wickets against Quetta.

A guide to Ramadan in Dubai Celebrate spirituality, humility and patience What is Ramadan? The Islamic calendar’s most important month, Ramadan, is a time of reflection and piety, marking the lunar period in which the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received his first revelations. Ramadan is one of the five pillars of Islam, the other four are Faith (Shahadah), Prayer (Salah), Charitable Giving (Zakah), and the Pilgrimage to Makkah (Haj). For observers, this period is respected by increasing time spent in prayer and with loved ones. Read This: What makes Dubai the #1 city for doing business? When is Ramadan held? As it is based on the Islamic lunar calendar, the dates of Ramadan vary from year to year, but it is estimated to fall around 26 May – 24 June in 2017. The exact day is officially announced when the crescent moon of the ninth month (of the traditional Islamic calendar) rises. Ramadan lasts for approximately 30 days, until the next new crescent moon has been sighted – before closing with Eid al-Fitr to break the fast in festive style. How do Muslims observe Ramadan? The beat of the city slows down, and time is taken to reflect, refresh and grow. While different countries […]
First of all, it is very hard to believe that Anubhav Sinha whose earlier credits include fluff stuff like Tum Bin and Ra. One has actually created this modern political masterpiece which attempts very successfully to humanize a community that has been demonized by some negative elements. And yet Mulk doesn’t take sides, doesn’t make the Indian Muslim community a portrait of injured innocence. What it does do, and full-marks to Anubhav Sinha for writing a script that doesn’t bend backward to humanize the community under siege is to lay bare the layers of deception that mars a truly fruitful dialogue between sane rational elements in both the Hindu and Muslim community. When the son (Prateik Babbar) from a Muslim family in the dense bylanes of Varanasi decides to become a so-called militant, the ramifications on his family are deep and wounding. It is in portraying the family’s anguish that Anubhav emerges with cinema that’s masterly and timely. There comes a time in the taut narrative when the patriarch of the family is asked to choose between home and safety. Rishi Kapoor making that resolute choice reminded me of Balraj Sahni in Garam Hawa. Kapoor has shaped up into that rare actor […]

DUBAI: An all-around performance led Karachi Kings to a 19-run victory over Quetta Gladiators in their first match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) here at the Dubai International Stadium, ARY News reported. Defending a modest 150-run target Karachi Kings needed wickets to pull off a winning start to the third edition and they did exactly what the analysts had summed up. Skipper Imad Wasim (2-19) chipped in with key wickets of Asad Shafiq and Rilee Rossouw to push Quetta on the back foot at 45-4. Then, much to the joy of the crowd, Afridi came into action and dismissed Quetta skipper for seven and then sent a dangerous Umar Amin (31) back with a stunning catch. Amin had hoisted pacer Mohammad Irfan to long-on where Afridi jumped high and took a right-handed catch, realizing that he could go out of the ground he threw the ball up and completed the catch by re-entering the ground. The catch made the crowd as well as the Karachi Kings entourage in the royal box ecstatic. But Karachi Kings still had to fight hard to finish the game as Mohammad Nawaz (30 off 20 balls with three fours and a six) and Hasan […]
Islamabad United vs Peshawar Zalmi: Which of the former two champions will emerge victorious today? Islamabad United and Peshawar Zalmi, champions of Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2016 and 2017 respectively, will lock horns today in the fourth match of the latest instalment of the tournament in Dubai. This year, United had to rebuild their entire top-order after they lost Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif to five-year bans — and most would agree that the team managers did a brilliant job. They have struck the right combination — a good mixture of experienced international players with young domestic talent — in every facet of the game. Their opening options include Luke Ronchi and Sahibzada Farhan, both of whom have been in top form in limited-overs cricket, with Alex Hales available on the bench as a supplementary player. United — one of the only two franchises to have retained the same captain (Misbah-ul-Haq) since the start of the PSL (the other being the Sarfraz Ahmed-led Quetta Gladiators) — appointed left-arm medium-pacer Raees as their vice-captain for this season. Also Read: Having lost their director of cricket, Wasim Akram, to the Multan Sultans, United swiftly moved to replace one W with another, bringing […]
