first_imgHowever, there was one major positive for Pakistan against Australia. Mohammad Amir picked up his first five-wicket haul and was key in Australia losing eight wickets for 84 runs. It was Amir who produced his brilliance during the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy final when he took Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan’s wickets to help Pakistan beat India and win the tournament for the first time. Sarfaraz said Amir was a big positive for the side.“If you take a positive from this match it is how Mohammad is bowling for us that is a big thing to take into our next matches. He’s a world-class bowler. When he’s swinging it, it’s very difficult to try to get on top of him. Then when it’s seaming and swinging, it’s even harder,” Sarfaraz said.Pakistan will take on India in the high-voltage clash in Manchester on June 16 while Australia will take on Sri Lanka at The Oval on June 15. Pakistan lost for the sixth time in 10 World Cup clashes against Australia.Australia will take on Sri Lanka in their next encounter.Pakistan will take on India on June 16 in Manchester. New Delhi: Pakistan had a torrid time in the field against Australia in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Asif Ali dropped Aaron Finch and the Australian skipper made Pakistan pay by blasting his 23rd fifty. The same fielder also dropped David Warner when he was on 104 but that did not prove costly as the left-hander perished for 107. Pakistan’s fielding lapses proved to be costly and despite Mohammad Amir’s 5/30 which restricted Australia to 307, Pakistan was undone by better fielding from Australia and they lost by 41 runs. For Pakistan, their fielding woes against Australia was a sense of deja-vu. In the 2015 quarterfinal in Adelaide, Rahat Ali dropped Shane Watson off Wahab Riaz and Pakistan squandered their chance of reaching the semi-final.Speaking in the post-match press conference, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed said the team has to improve fielding if they are to match India in their upcoming high-voltage clash against India in Manchester on June 16. “We made too many mistakes in all departments. I’m very disappointed with our fielding, it is not up to the mark or standard expected. We will have to work hard to improve on this before we play India, there can be no excuse,” Sarfaraz said.

first_imgDear Editor,I would be grateful if you can permit me a small space in your newspaper to highlight an issue that I find extremely worrying.Over the years, it seems our banking sector is doing everything possible to lose customers and stress out the general public. From requesting mountains of documents and implementing unfriendly procedures, this has resulted in long lines at most banks.A close colleague of mine just returned from the bank and confided in me a tale that sounds like our banks have gone crazy. At the New Building Society Limited, he was attempting to deposit a dividend cheque value $3000 that was received from Republic Bank Guyana Limited. The proceeds being dividends from shares held at RBL. He was unsuccessful in completing this seemingly uncomplicated transaction.I now provide you the details as to why he was unable to complete the deposit. The cheque is written in the names of A and B (A being my friend and B being his father). He was attempting to deposit the cheque at NBS to and account in the names B & C (B being his father whose is one of the payee of the cheque and C being his mother). The cheque was endorsed by both A and B (the payees) and both identifications were presented along with the cheque and the book for the account to facilitate the deposit.Now bear in mind similar transactions have been completed in the past at the same NBS with little to no hassle, since dividend cheques have been similarly received from RBL over several years.The teller after referring the transaction to his superior indicated that the procedures have changed and the transaction could not be processed unless both persons whose names were on the cheque along with the other party on the account were present at the bank with there identifications. Then the payees on the cheque will have to endorse the cheque and also indicate pay to the order of the parties on the bank account and then the parties on the account will also have to endorse the cheque accepting the deposit to their account.Am I the only one who thinks this is absolutely madness? Where else in the world exist such a procedure for conducting a simple deposit of a cheque for $3000 drawn on, dear I say, a reputable bank in Guyana.Editor, I thank your for your time in reviewing the above letter and considering publishing it in your newspaper as I believe that these issues must be publicly highlighted so that common sense changes could be made.With best regards,Marcus Perrylast_img read more
