Whatmore says no security problems in Pakistan

Pakistan's cricket coach Dav Whatmore Monday voiced disappointment at Bangladesh postponing their tour, saying he had felt no security concerns during his two months in the country.

Last week Bangladesh agreed to visit Pakistan for an ODI Series and a Twenty20 international but the tour was delayed on Thursday by a Dhaka high court ruling over security fears.

Pakistan had hoped the short tour would help restore international cricket in the country, suspended in the wake of deadly terror attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore in March 2009.

"Like everyone else in Pakistan, I am also disappointed" Whatmore said. "We were close to choosing the team but now Bangladesh not coming everything is finished which is a bit disappointing."

"From my personal view, having born in Sri Lanka and lived through the civil war there, and now staying in Lahore I have faced no security problems," he said.

"I have not seen very many areas in Lahore and if I know some other areas I would like to go there, but I have faced no problems here," he said.

Whatmore, 57, played 7 Tests for Australia and as coach guided Sri Lanka to their famous victory in the 1996 World Cup.

He also coached Bangladesh to the Super Six Stages of the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies.

Under Whatmore, Pakistan last month won the Asia Cup, also involving world champions India.

"I am thankful to god that I got back my life. Everybody faces such issues. I am very happy and thankful to everyone that I am out of it," said the flamboyant left-hander, who admitted to that there were times when he broke down.

Asked when it would be possible for him to return to action, a smiling Yuvraj said not before a couple of months at least.

"All my fans want me to come back soon, I am sure you people will understand that my body will take time. I will have to take care of my health. I will try to return as soon as possible, in the last two months. I have been through a very tough time," he said.

Sehwag-Dhoni rift settled: Sourav Ganguly

Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday said that current captain MS Dhoni and V Sehwag have settled their difference of opinion.

Talking to reporters at a programme here, Ganguly said he recently had a talk with Sehwag who told him that everything has been settled between him and Dhoni.

Reports of a rift between Dhoni and Sehwag had surfaced after the team management introduced a rotational policy for the three openers - Sachin Tendulkar, Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir - during the tri-series in Australia last month.

To a question on the perception that Dhoni does not give a chance to many players and likes to play with a fixed team, Ganguly said, "Every skipper is different and no captain is perfect. May be Dhoni believes that this team can win because no skipper wants to lose."

On whether he would have played Manoj Tiwary and Ashok Dinda if he were the captain of India, Ganguly said, "I probably would have given a chance to them but I hope Dhoni will also give a chance to these players."

"We have three good players in Bengal team - Manoj Tiwary, Ashok Dinda and Wriddhiman (Saha). They are of international standard. So it's a good sign for Bengal. Apart from them there is also Shami Ahmed who is also a good player."

Asked about the in-form Bengal all-rounder Laxmi Ratan Shukla's chances of playing for the national side, he said, "Laxmi is probably playing his best cricket now. He is an all-rounder which a team needs. If he plays some more good series then I am sure he will get in."

Ben Hilfenhaus will replace injured paceman Brett Lee for the one-day international against Sri Lanka.

"The NSP has named Ben Hilfenhaus in the squad for the game against Sri Lanka in Perth on Friday," Inverarity said. "Ben will replace the injured Brett Lee and the bowling attack for Perth is likely to be the same as the one that did so well in Melbourne and Ben will be in Perth to provide cover."

Dilshan steps down as SL captain

Sri Lankan skipper Tillakaratne Dilshan has has decided to resign from his post as the skipper of the Sri Lankan team. The announcement was made through a press release by Sri Lanka Cricket.

"Dilshan sent his resignation from the captaincy of the national team to Sri Lanka Cricket a short while ago," SLC said in a text message alert to its subscribers.

Dilshan was made the captain after the World Cup 2011, during which Kumar Sangakkara led the team. Dilshan's last series in charge was the tour to South Africa where his team lost the Test series 2-1 and the ODI series 3-2. Dilshan also led SL to England and in a home series against Australia but failed to win those too.

Captaincy saw the dashing right-hander's form dip by a large margin and there were numerous calls to remove him from the post. One of the high points was surely leading Sri Lanka to their first Test win since the retirement of spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan and their first ever Test win in South Africa.

Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage confirmed that middle order stalwart, Mahela Jayawardene will be the new captain while Angelo Mathews will be his deputy.

Mahela Jayawardene, who led Sri Lanka to the 2007 World Cup runners-up spot, will be the captain for all three formats of the game.

The selectors also announced the squad for the tri-nation series in Australia also involving India. Farvez Maharoof has made a comeback into the squad along with left arm pacer Chanaka Walegedara. They replace the out of sorts Dilhara Fernando and Kosala Kulasekara. Maharoof last featured in the Sri lankan line-up against India in August, 2010.

Team: Mahela Jayawardene (captain), Angelo Mathews, Upul Tharanga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara, Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne, Thisara Perera, Farveez Maharoof, Rangana Herath, Sachithra Senanayake, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Kulasekera, Chanaka Welegedera, Dhammika Prasad.
