South African players Andrew Hudson, S Palframan & Fanie De Villiers in Faisalabad market (circa 1998)

A very sad photo :no: There were reports Netherland's is planning to tour Pakistan at the end of the year but I hope the tour doesn't go through. Conditions are far far from being even remotely close to safe.

Sethi and co. are busy licking their master's boots when they should rather focus their efforts towards improving Cricket at the grassroot level. Fielding, for instance, is atrocious at the domestic level.

Pakistan's temporary support for the ICC revamp hinges on the promise of six series against India, including a 'home' series in the Middle East as part of an upcoming, reworked eight-year FTP cycle. With India-Pakistan like to be held in 2015.

Just came to know the Indian Premier League (IPL) commences from today. First half of the tournament will be played in the UAE whereas the next will be held in India.

Anyone watching it? How're the crowds in Arab land?

It seems that Peter Moore will once again become the new Eng permanent Head coach, with Paul Farbrace his assistant.
Last time when peter moore was head coach of Eng team, he made Kevin Petersen the captain of Eng team, this time lets see what he actually does.

That pretty much seals any hopes of a Pietersen comeback. He was chiefly responsible for Moores ousting last time.

Pakistan All-Rounder Mohammad Hafeez, is utilizing the off season to help young cricketers learn the technical side of the game in his native city, Sargodha.
He has set up a five-day programme named ‘skills to shine’, for which 40 outstanding cricketers were selected after trials and are now being given tips from qualified coaches of the National Cricket Academy and Hafeez himself.

    Not to mention, monirors capable of 4k/120Hz over hdmi require an hdmi 2.1 port, which is relatively rare atm

    It's a good deal for the price. You aren't getting a 4k/120Hz display for a bit more

    don't think it will be possible at most you will get 10hz more out of it and it could cause some stability issues if the ports on the monitor are not rated for higher refresh rate
    yeah even factory supported over locks dont go higher than 20-30hz

    Even intel hd can push 144hz on Windows so there is no reason to bound yourself to a 60hz panel

    Hardware is always getting more powerful even the 3060 ti is supposed to be able to do 2k 144hz

    but again i'll probably need a lot more new hardware to utilize anything > 60hz, including a new PC which I don't see happening for a long while

    It's a native 60hz panel which is a dealbreaker at least choose one that in addition to 4k60 can go to 120hz on 2k so you can get high refresh rate gaming
    those naturally become a lot more expensive, just looking at it because of price point.
