CWI announce their 13-man squad for the second Test against South Africa

Cricket West Indies (CWI) announced their 13-man squad for the second Test against South Africa at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground starting from June 18.

The Kraigg Brathwaite-led side suffered a humiliating defeat by an inning and 63 runs at the hands of the South Africans in the first encounter and would be looking to emerge victorious in the final Test to level the two-match red-ball series.

Windies opener Darren Bravo and pacer Shannon Gabriel have been roped in to provide solidarity to their batting and bowling departments, respectively.

Talking about the additions, CWI chief selector Roger Harper pointed out that Gabriel had spearheaded his side’s bowling attack before missing out on the first Test due to an injury, whereas Bravo gave them a ‘quality batting option’.

“Shannon Gabriel has been declared fully fit and as someone who was the spearhead of the attack before, he has returned to the 13-man squad. With Bravo, we have someone who is an experienced batsman and gives us a quality batting option,” Harper stated in an official CWI release on Thursday.

The 58-year-old admitted that the Caribbean side would have to improve in the upcoming game and prove their mettle.

“The team now has to play to the standard we know we’re capable of. We didn’t bat anywhere near to our potential in the first Betway Test, and we have to improve with the bat in this upcoming match,” the former West Indies’ cricketer added.

Kieran Powell remained in the list after getting an opportunity to field in the opening Test’s second innings as a concussion substitute when Nkrumah Bonner was ruled out due to an injury.

The Windies’ will again clash with the Proteas during a five-match T20I series from June 26 after the second Test gets over on June 22.

West Indies squad: Kraigg Brathwaite (c), Jermaine Blackwood (vc), Darren Bravo, Roston Chase, Rahkeem Cornwall, Joshua Da Silva, Shannon Gabriel, Jason Holder, Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales

Azhar Mahmood’s wife Ebba Qureshi asks fitness tips for her husband from Bobby Deol; the former player reacts

Cricket and cinema are the two areas of interest that unite India and Pakistan. Bollywood actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan enjoy a huge following in the neighbouring country, whereas Pakistani actors like Fawad Khan and Mahira Khan have made their mark in the hearts of Indians.

One such banter of the sport stars and movie celebrities happened when Indian actor Bobby Deol uploaded a shirtless video from when he was shooting for the Salman Khan starrer ‘Race 3.’

Bobby was seen flaunting his chiselled and muscular body. Notably, the Soldier-fame actor had undergone a heavy transformation for his role in ‘Race 3.’

The 52-year-old had posted the video on Twitter on the occasion of the third anniversary of the film.

“This is where it all began again! The journey has been incredible, especially 2020! Cannot wait to show you all everything coming up next. #3yearsofRace3 #Gratitude,” Bobby captioned the video.

The snippet soon gained over 2,000 likes and was shared multiple times by followers as it panned eyes around the world. One such fan was former Pakistan cricketer Azhar Mahmood’s wife, Ebba Qureshi.

Ebba took no time in applauding Bobby for his youthful look and complimented him by stating that he is reversing in age. Mahmood’s wife also quizzed Bobby for some beneficial tips for her life partner.

“Omg Bobby! You reversing in age!!! Tips please for @AzharMahmood11,” Ebba commented on the tweet.

However, Mahmood looked defiant to his wife’s fitness plans for him as he remarked that Bobby had put him in a tight spot.

“Bobby yaar marwaditta na… ( Bobby, you got me killed),” Mahmood quipped.

Mahmood was one of the leading Pakistan all-rounders during his era. The veteran cricketer used to swing the ball both ways and had many stock deliveries to trick the opposition batters. With the bat, too, he was very destructive as he used to come lower down the order and play big hits.

Mahmood scalped 162 wickets and scored 2,421 runs in 164 international games.
