Rodgers fined for Mason comments

first_img Press Association Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been fined £8,000 and given a warning about his conduct for his criticism of referee Lee Mason. Rodgers admitted an FA misconduct charge after he said following the 2-1 defeat by Manchester City that the match should not have been refereed by an official from Greater Manchester – Mason is from Bolton. An FA independent regulatory commission imposed the sanction and warned Rodgers as to his future conduct. center_img Rodgers said after the City match: “Hopefully we don’t have a Greater Manchester referee again for the Liverpool v Manchester City game. I’m sure we won’t get somebody from the Wirral.” last_img read more

Veteran Misbah-ul-Haq to lead Pakistan in Caribbean

first_imgLAHORE, Pakistan (CMC) – Under-fire Test captain Misbah-ul-Haq will lead Pakistan on their three-match tour of the Caribbean starting in April, after rejecting calls for his ouster and making himself available.Calls for the veteran player to step down had intensified in recent months following Pakistan’s poor form which saw them lose all five of their last Tests to New Zealand and Australia.But the 42-year-old – he turns 43 in May – said it was important that he stay on to help Pakistan end their losing skid.“I am committed to the Pakistan Test team and that’s why I’ve made myself available,” Misbah said.“We as a team will do our best to lift ourselves from the slump which we’ve had by losing six Tests on the trot.”Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Shaharyar Khan confirmed he had been informed by Misbah of his decision and that had been conveyed to the selection panel.A PCB statement subsequently indicated that Misbah would be at the helm for the West Indies series.“Accordingly the chairman has approved his appointment as captain of the Pakistan Test team for the upcoming Test series in West Indies,” the statement said.“The chairman has also approved the appointment of Sarfaraz Ahmad as vice-captain of the Pakistan Test side.”Misbah has led Pakistan in 53 of his 72 Tests, winning 24, losing 18 and drawing 11. Last October, he steered the hosts to a convincing 2-1 victory over the Windies in a three-match series in the United Arab Emirates.Since then, however, he presided over a 2-0 loss to the Black Caps and a 3-0 defeat to the Aussies away from home.Pakistan face West Indies in the opening Test at Sabina Park in Jamaica from April 22 to 26, in the second Test at Kensington Oval in Barbados from April 30 to May 4 before clashing in the final game at Windsor Park in Dominica from May 10 to 14.last_img read more
