ZIM vs PAK: Pakistan's batting 'Ali-Ali', double century partnership broke Zimbabwe's hopes

Ali relied on Pakistan in the second test against Zimbabwe. His batting in the first innings of the Test match was Azhar Ali-Abid Ali, who added a run on the scoreboard to break the hopes of the opponent ie Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe had dropped Pakistan's first wicket at just 12. Meaning Zimbabwe had a full chance to hold on to the match. But, Ali stood on both sides of the wicket as a wall and made the Zimbabwean team poor.

Pakistan's batting revolved around Jin Ali-Ali, one of them was Abid Ali and the other was Azhar Ali. Both batsmen took the lead as soon as the first wicket fell as opener Imran Butt. Instead of giving Zimbabwe a chance to hold on to the match, it kept them away from the match through their tremendous batting.

Azhar Ali-Abid Ali teamed up 236 runs

Both batsmen kept the Zimbabwean bowlers dwarfed. After falling the first wicket for 12 runs, Abid Ali and Azhar Ali together added 236 runs for the second wicket, facing 450 balls in the score board. In this partnership, both batsmen scored a century. When Azhar Ali scored his 17th Test century, Abid Ali's third Test century came off the bat. This partnership was broken when Azhar Ali was dismissed after scoring 126 runs from 240 balls. After the innings of 126 runs, Azhar Ali's batting average has been 50 in the last 10 Test innings. This is his second century in his last 10 Tests.

Abid Ali remained unbeaten on first day, 118 * runs

However, with the break-up of Abid Ali and Azhar Ali's partnership, Pakistan's wickets began to fall. Both Babar Azam and Fawad Alam returned to the pavilion for the next 20 runs. By the end of the first day's play, Pakistan scored 268 runs for 4 wickets in the first innings. The good thing is that Pakistan's second century Abid Ali remained unbeaten after scoring 118 runs off 246 balls. That means, the next day, his effort will be on turning his century into a double century.

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

The country lost its legendary sprinter Milkha Singh on Friday. Milkha Singh's life is an inspiration for anyone. He has set many records in his life and has set benchmarks for the people. Whatever he got from him, he used to learn something or the other. His inspirational words have the power to add to the broken courage of anyone. Something similar happened to Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, the goalkeeper of the Indian football team. Sandhu has told that the words of Milkha Singh, popularly known as Flying Sikh, inspire him even today.

Gurpreet recalled the words of Milkha Singh and told that this great sprinter told him that "You don't have to stop." Sandhu said that his advice helped him to fight the challenges during his European tenure. Veteran Milkha Singh passed away on Friday in Chandigarh due to complications related to Kovid-19. Thousands of countrymen, including players, paid tribute to him.

no substitute for hard work

Recalling the day he received the award from Milkha Singh at a function in Chandigarh in 2015, Gurpreet said, “He (Milkha) told me, “There is no substitute for hard work. I used to vomit blood several times during practice but you don't have to stop. At that time, I was playing club football in Norway with FC Stabeck, where every day was a struggle to prove myself and make it to the starting team. It was a big challenge while abroad, there were days when it was difficult to maintain my enthusiasm.

He said, "However, I myself used to remember the advice of 'Flying Sikh'. He was a great motivator and inspired me to give my all every day. The words he spoke to me are with me even today and will continue to be a great source of inspiration. His words and blessings will be with me whenever I fight for my country on the football field.

keeps the legacy alive

Gurpreet became the first Indian footballer to play in Europe's top division in 2014, representing Norway's FC Stabeck. He remained with the team until 2017 and during this time became the first Indian player to play in the Europa League (European football's second level club competition) in 2016.

Remembering Milkha Singh, who missed out on a bronze medal by a hundredth of a second at the Rome Olympics (1960), Gurpreet said, "The saga of great people and their legacy lives on forever. Milkha Singh ji and his life story have influenced billions of people in India and across the world. He may not be with us but he will continue to inspire generations to come. We all have grown up reading about him and will never forget to share the stage with him. That moment will always be close to my heart.
