    Pakistan's secret weapon----a HINDU !!!


    The Rediff Special/ Jyoti Shukla

    Pakistan's secret weapon

    Danish Kaneria... When you hear the name, you are not sure what to make
    of it.

    So when you add the word 'cricket' to it, it becomes even more
    confusing. I mean, you've never heard of him -- he has never played in
    the Ranji, Duleep, Wills or Irani Trophy matches, has he?

    Well, of course, he hasn't. After all, he is a full-fledged member of
    the current Pakistani Test team!

    It's true he has an Urdu first name -- Danish means intelligence in Urdu
    -- but he is a true-blue Hindu. He also happens to be Anil Dalpat's --
    remember the guy who, in his short career in 1983-84, kept wickets for
    Pakistan? -- cousin!

    Anil had created a record of sorts by being the first Hindu to be
    selected for Pakistan's cricket team.

    Barely two per cent of Pakistan comprises Hindus and most of them, like
    Danish, come from the Sindh province.

    Danish, who is a leg spinner, plays for Karachi. It was his superlative
    performance in national league cricket that earned the 19-year-old a
    place in a team that boasts of experienced spinners like Mushtaq Ahmad
    and Saqlain Mushtaq.

    In the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy (equivalent to India's Ranji Trophy), Danish
    -- who was playing for Karachi Whites against Gujranwala -- took seven
    wickets for just 39 runs. Then, when he was given the opportunity to be
    part of the Test team against England, he put in a commendable
    performance (two wickets and nine maidens for 87 runs in 34 overs in
    first innings and 30 runs in seven overs in the second; the match was a
    draw).

    His great advantage is his height, which helps him lend pace and spin to
    his bowling. He can turn the ball even on wickets that are not
    spinner-friendly. And, of course, one cannot discount his ability to
    work hard.

    Like a friend of mine, who lives in Lahore, said: "There are so many
    Muslims in India that making it to the Test team is not a big deal for
    them. But the Hindu population in Pakistan is so small that they could
    be kept in a museum. To earn the Test cap in such circumstances is a
    miraculous feat indeed."

              Azhar attends Owaisi's Iftar in Hyderabad


              Syed Amin Jafri in Hyderabad


              Former Indian cricket skipper Mohammed Azharuddin made a surprise
              appearance at an Iftar party hosted by Member of Parliament and
              Majlis-e-Ittehaadul Muslimeen leader Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi in
              Hyderabad on Wednesday evening.

              Among other VIPs who turned up at the Iftar included Chief Minister N
              Chandrababu Naidu, Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee president M
              Satyanarayana Rao, Director General of Police H J Dora and a host of
              senior Indian Administrative Service and Indian Police Service officials
              besides a cross-section of the city's elite and Muslim intelligentsia.

              Azharuddin, who arrived just before the breaking of roza (fast) at the
              sprawling Darussalam grounds, was literally mobbed by television crews,
              press photographers and media persons.

              However, he refused to say a word. He went up to a separate enclosure
              where the chief minister and APCC chief were seated. He greeted
              Chandrababu Naidu and walked away.

              The former skipper, who is in the eye of the storm over match-fixing
              allegations and the life ban imposed on him by the Board of Control for
              Cricket in India, looked somewhat haggard. He said that he has been
              observing the roza.

              But he was seen in a relaxed mood. He exchanged pleasantries with the
              other dignitaries and posed for photographs for the media.

              He said he would love to play cricket 'when the ban goes'.

              This is Azharuddin's second public appearance in the city in the last
              one week. On December 14, he had attended a reception hosted at Hotel
              Taj Banjara to welcome Miss Asia Pacific Diya Mirza, who is a resident
              of Hyderabad.

              "It was really wonderful occasion as I was one of the judges for the
              Femina Miss India contest and three queens in one year is quite a sweep.
              Her (Diya Mirza) being a Hyderabadi makes it that much more wonderful
              and there is this bond. I wish her all the best," Azharuddin was quoted
              as saying at the party for Diya Mirza.

                    if he deserves to be on the team he deserves to be on the team, no matter what his religion.
                    34 wickets @ 16.79 in the Grade 1 Quaid e Azam trophy is pretty good...haan?
