Khaleel Ahmed Credits Zaheer Khan For Becoming “A Better Bowler”

Khaleel Ahmed made his India debut in the Asia Cup 2018 and wants to continue his good performance as the 2019 World Cup nears. Khaleel was named in the 14-man India squad for the first two One-day Internationals (ODIs) against the Windies, starting October 21 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. Ahead of first ODI against the tourists, Khaleel credited former India pacer Zaheer Khan for helping him become a better bowler.

“I think I became a better bowler with his (Zaheer’s) advice,” the 20-year-old bowler said.

“I have spent a lot of time with Zaheer bhai during my two-year stint at the Delhi Daredevils. We played in different conditions during IPL and he always kept discussing on how to bowl on different surfaces,” he added.

Khaleel feels that a good performance against the Windies will serve him well with the 2019 World Cup looming large.

“It’s a good preparation for me for the World Cup. I want to take as many wickets as I can in the ODIs leading up to the World Cup. It will also boost my confidence and I will be under less pressure if I am picked for the World Cup,” Khaleel said.

In his second series with the senior team, Khaleel recalled how nervous he was before his debut against Hong Kong, in which he recorded impressive figures of 3 for 48.

“I was very nervous (for my debut) as my first tournament happened to be a big tournament like the Asia Cup. There was pressure. But after doing well on debut, I felt I could go further,” Khaleel recalled.

Even though it’s his second series, Khaleel said that the seniors have never made him feel like a newcomer.

“I never have felt that I’m a junior in the side. Seniors support me well. Everyone keeps talking to me and boost my confidence,” Khaleel said.

Imran Khan To Attend Saudi Investment Conference After Saudi Journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s Disappearance

Imran Khan’s visit comes as Pakistan continues to court “friendly” nations for funds. (File)

Islamabad, Pakistan: 

Pakistan’s foreign ministry announced Friday that Prime Minister Imran Khan will attend a Saudi Arabian investment conference, despite a string of cancellations from leading policy-makers and corporate chiefs over the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The decision comes a day after US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and senior ministers from Europe announced plans to skip the conference. 

The move by the White House intensified the kingdom’s mounting isolation amid an uproar over the mysterious disappearance of Khashoggi after he entered a Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this month.

Khan’s visit comes as Pakistan continues to court “friendly” nations in search of billions of dollars to shore up its deteriorating finances as it faces a balance of payment crisis and upcoming talks with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) over a potential bailout.

Khan’s participation in the conference “signifies our solidarity with the kingdom in its efforts to become an emerging hub of international business and investment,” the foreign ministry said in the statement.

“The conference provides an opportunity to interact with important business leaders who are interested in investing in Pakistan.”

The conference is being touted as a high-powered showcase for the economic reforms of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — who has been widely accused of having links to Khashoggi’s disappearance.

Pakistan briefly weighed in on the incident earlier this month, calling on Turkey and Saudi Arabia “to jointly address the matter”. 

Khan made his maiden foreign visit as premier to Saudi Arabia in September as Islamabad explored alternative avenues to financing before approaching the IMF.

Since taking power in August Khan has sought loans from allies such as China and Saudi Arabia, promised to recover funds stolen by corrupt officials, and embarked on a series of high-profile populist austerity measures.

But help has been in short supply and economists’ warnings have grown increasingly urgent.

The visit also comes as Pakistan’s central bank warned this week that inflation would likely double in the coming year — hitting 7.5 percent — while the country’s growth target rate of 6.2 percent would likely be missed.

Rajya Sabha member Amar Singh on Wednesday filed a police complaint against Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan for allegedly threatening his daughters with acid attack, following which a first information report was registered against him.

The FIR was registered at the Gomti Nagar police station, the police said.

“I gave an application at Gomti Nagar police station to lodge an FIR against Azam Khan for threatening my daughters with acid attack,” Mr Singh told reporters.

Mr Singh claimed that the Samajwadi Party leader had threatened him and his twin 17-year-old daughters during an interview to a television channel.

The Rajya Sabha lawmaker had gone to Rampur on August 30 and asked Mr Khan to “sacrifice” him and spare his daughters.

The police confirmed the registration of FIR against the former Uttar Pradesh minister.

On Mr Singh’s application, an FIR was registered against Mr Khan under various sections of IPC, including 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion), 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religions) and 506 (criminal intimidation), the police said.

Mr Singh also attacked UP DGP OP Singh over the recent killing of Apple executive Vivek Tiwari and sought the police official’s resignation.

“The UP DGP should resign if he cannot handle the state’s law and order situation,” he said.

Mr Singh, who was expelled from the Samajwadi Party last year, however, praised Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, terming him an “honest” person.

Imran Khan Party Wins 15 Seats, Maintains Slim Majority After Pak Bypolls

The by-elections come after a national vote on July 25 propelled Imran Khan to power.


Pakistan’s ruling party under new Prime Minister Imran Khan has maintained its slim majority in parliament after key by-elections, the final results showed on Monday.

Mr Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) won 15 seats of the total 36 on offer in polls held across the country on Sunday, according to the Election Commission of Pakistan.

Its ally the Pakistan Muslim League, one of several parties with which it has formed a coalition government, won an additional two seats, bringing the coalition’s total in the national assembly — the lower house of parliament — to 177 out of 342.

The main opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) increased its seat count to 85.

The by-elections come after a national vote on July 25 propelled former World Cup cricketer Khan to power, an outcome that was rejected by the main opposition parties.

Most of the national assembly seats had been open as Pakistan allows candidates to run in multiple constituencies, but keep only one seat.

The general election — dubbed “Pakistan’s dirtiest” — had been criticised by the United States, the European Union and other observers after widespread claims that the powerful military was trying to fix the playing field in Mr Khan’s favour.
