Gill moved by Pak players’ gesture

Durban: Pakistan cricket team’s desire to visit their former coach Bob Woolmer’s residence has been warmly appreciated by his wife Gill. According to the Pakistan team manager, Talat Ali, the entire team — which is in Cape Town for their ICC World Twenty20 campaign — were keen to call on Bob Woolmer’s wife and offer their condolences personally at her residence.

However, Ali later learnt that Mrs Woolmer had gone abroad. “I called on her residence and spoke to Bob’s sons — Russell and Dale — who informed me that their mother was out of the country. I then spoke to Gill on phone… She really appreciated Pakistan team’s gesture to meet her,” Ali said.

6 Pakistanis game for IPL

Karachi: Six Pakistan cricket team members want to play in the officially sanctioned Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 competition, a top cricket board official said on Thursday.

The official said that six players had informed the PCB they were keen to play in the IPL, which was launched earlier this month in New Delhi by the BCCI.

“Six of our players are keen to play and we will be informing the Indian board and the other stakeholders about their availability,” the official said.

McGrath’s mission

Melbourne: Having joined the Indian Premier League (IPL) post-retirement, former Australian pacer Glenn McGrath now wants to explore other business opportunities there.

Like fellow Aussie Brett Lee, McGrath realises India is the biggest market for cricketer. The pacer has no qualms in admitting that IPL would give him the opportunity to look at those options. “I’m keen to be involved in it and whether that’s playing or whatever, we’ll see what happens,” he was quoted as saying.
