Hashim Amla named CSA 'Cricketer of the Year’

Middle-order batsman Hashim Amla was the star of Cricket South Africa's Annual Awards night, clinching the 'Cricket of the Year' honor along with four other trophies, including a special one for a knock against India.

Amla was also named 'Test Cricketer of the Year' and lauded by both his peers and fans, who ensured that he won the 'South African Players', ‘Player of the Year' and 'CSA Fans' Cricketer of the Year' awards.

Amla's 5th trophy was the 'So Good Award' sponsored by popular chicken fast food franchise KFC in gratitude of his match-winning knock of 253 not out in the 1st Test against India in Nagpur in 2009.

AB de Villiers was named 'ODI Cricketer of the Year' and Charl Langeveldt received the 'International Pro20 Cricketer of the Year' award. The 'Newcomer of the Year Award' went to Ryan McLaren.

In his best year since joining the national squad, Amla scored four Test centuries, including his 1st career double and also joined the ranks of those who scored centuries in both innings of a Test match. During the year he played in nine Test matches, with 923 runs at an average of 65.9.

He also established himself as one of South Africa's leading limited overs batsmen, setting a national record when he scored more than 400 runs in the five-match series in the West Indies.

England took the three-match series 2-1

Bangladesh won the toss and elected to field first. England captain Andrew Strauss getting career-best 152 in 140 balls

And Trott then seized his chance with 94 at Bristol before making a maiden ODI century on his Warwickshire home ground.

Ravi Bopara blazed his way to 45 not out off 16 balls with four sixes on Monday and then took four wickets with his medium-pacers. Finally England getting amazing total for 347/7 in 50 over.

Bangladesh, chasing an imposing 348 to win, never looked like getting remotely close and were bowled out for 203 as England took the three-match series 2-1.

It was just the sort of emphatic victory England needed after the embarrassment of their five-run defeat - their first against Bangladesh in any format - in the second one-dayer at Bristol on Saturday.

"We are going to need a squad of players at the World Cup 2011," said Strauss

"Things have clouded over a little because these guys have come in and done so well," said Strauss, both the man-of-the-match and the series.

Bangladesh skipper Mashrafe Mortaza, who led by example with three wickets for 31 runs on Monday, was at a loss to explain his side's dip in form.

"It was (disappointing). We played poorly as a team."

But the seamer promised Bangladesh would bounce back in their remaining tour games against Scotland and Ireland.

"We have to play well and win those matches," Mortaza said. "I am confident we will be back and confident we will be better than before."

India-Pakistan cricket not possible as of now: Pawar

New ICC President Sharad Pawar says direct resumption of cricket ties between India and Pakistan is not possible.

"Immediate ties between both countries is not possible. It is not in the hands of the Cricket Boards. It is a political issue. This is a decision taken by the Indian government," said Pawar.

Asked about demands for the introduction of day-night Tests to save the longer format of the game, Pawar said the "issue has not reached his ear".

"We are only administrators. If needed, I will let the experts take a call," Pawar said.

To a query whether the ICC was thinking to shift its headquarters back to England, Pawar said, "In England, there are 40 per cent taxes while there are no taxes in Dubai. The moment England thinks also about cricket we will consider it."

Pawar said he was confident about BCCI President Shashank Manohar's honest to handle the controversial Lalit Modi issue.

Strauss says England can manage without KP

England Skipper Andrew Strauss insists he has no doubts about leading a side without Kevin Pietersen.

The star batsman will miss the 3 ODI against Bangladesh, starting at Trent Bridge here on Thursday, with a thigh injury - although England selection Chief Geoff Miller said the South Africa-born batsman would have been rested in any event.

Kevin Pietersen has gone 16 ODI innings without a fifty and while his place, when fit, is not yet under risk. However, the loss of debatably their most talented player means England are set to give either Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott a chance to fill the place.

"He is a loss because he's a world-class player but he's being replaced by people with proven track records in international cricket," said Strauss.

"It's not as if we're blooding a youngster on the back of losing our biggest player. I'm entirely confident we've got the reserves in place to cope with that loss," Strauss added.

Ian Bell, has played 79 one-dayers for England but hasn't featured in one since facing India in Bangalore back in November 2008.

ICC to encourage Ind-Pak series: Sharad Pawar

Hardly hours after taking over as the new ICC president, Sharad Pawar today said the game's tip body would try to encourage the resumption of Ind-Pak two-sided series if there is government clearance from both sides.

"Recent Foreign and Home Minister's visit to Pakistan is a welcome sign. If India and Pakistan start playing, it may also power the bilateral relations of the two countries. If both the governments permit, we will be happy to encourage the resumption of cricketing relations," Sharad Pawar said.

Former BCCI President Sharad Pawar, who is also a helping union minister in the Indian government, begins a two-year term as ICC President after taking over from David Morgan today.

Sharad Pawar hoped the process to get better the relations between the two neighboring countries will help to foster cricketing ties too.

"ICC wants India and Pakistan to continue their bilateral series. But ICC had not taken the initiative to stop that. It was because of some unforeseen circumstances that both the countries had decided to stop it. But now that the process to improve relations between the countries is on, it will give some dividends to cricket too," Pawar told CNN-IBN.

The cricketing ties between India and Pakistan were stopped after the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack in 2008.
