T20 league chaos hits Pakistan revival efforts KARACHI: The resignation of the head of Pakistan's proposed new Twenty20 league has plunged the much-hyped tournament into further chaos, complicating efforts to bring international cricket back to the country.   No international matches have been played in Pakistan since March 2009, when militants attacked the Sri Lankans during a Test match in the eastern city of Lahore, killing eight Pakistanis and wounding seven visiting players.   The Pakistan Super League (PSL), originally due to start on March 26, ...
South Africa win toss, chose to field in 2nd test  CAPE TOWN: South Africa skipper Graeme Smith, captaining his country in a test for the 100th time, won the toss and elected to bowl first in the second test against Pakistan at Newlands on Thursday.   The Proteas are unchanged from the first test at the Wanderers, which they won by 211 runs, sticking with Robin Peterson as their spinning choice over Imran Tahir.    The wicket is expected to be lively for the seamers on the first two ...
