Coach Waqar Younis hopes Pakistan can put a turbulent build-up to the ICC World Twenty20 behind them as they begin their campaign against Bangaldesh in Kolkata on Wednesday. Cody Whitehair Jersey . Pakistans participation in the competition was a doubt up until last week, when they were given clearance by their government to travel to India following security concerns.Their preparations were undermined further earlier this week when captain Shahid Afridi defended comments he made over the adulation he receives in India. Younis, though, was strictly focused on the task at hand and he will urge the same from his players before they take to the field at Eden Gardens.He said in a press conference broadcast on the Pakistan Cricket Boards official website: We had a bit of drama before coming here, we had a bit of controversy yesterday also. Shahid Afridis comments caused some controversy My message to the boys will be to leave everything behind because this is about playing for the nation, this is about playing some quality cricket and theyre all capable of playing good cricket.We are the kind of team that once we click, once we get the momentum going, we can surprise people.Of Afridis remarks, the former fast bowler added: I didnt find anything that controversial in it. This is something he felt, so I believe we should leave that rather than talk more about it. Pakistan won the competition on its second staging in England in 2009 but their recent form has been poor, with series defeats to England and New Zealand in the last six months and an early exit in the Asia Cup.Indeed in that tournament they suffered a surprise defeat to Bangladesh, who went on to reach the final on home turf, although Younis, while not underestimating the Tigers, believes conditions will be more neutral this time.He said: I have seen the wicket, definitely different conditions to Bangladesh. But when you play good cricket, conditions do not really matter that much. Bangladesh cricket captain Mashrafe Bin Mortaza I think Bangladesh are playing very good cricket so weve got to be really watchful and we have to come out really strong to beat them.Bangladesh reached the Super 10s stage, where they will also face Australia, India and New Zealand, after topping their first-round group with victories over Holland and Oman. Bangladesh are hoping Mustafizur Rahman will be fit Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza said in quotes on the Dhaka Tribune: There is nothing called impossible in Twenty20 cricket.We are here to play and play well. We want to play our best possible cricket. I am confident that the way we are performing at the moment, we have no thing much to worry about.Bangladesh will be hoping to call upon Mustafizur Rahman, the left-arm seamer who has exploded onto the scene in limited-overs cricket but has not played since last month because of a side strain.Sky Sports is the only place you can watch all 35 games in 27 days of the 2016 ICC World T20.

Charlottetown scored four times in the third period en route to a 5-2 win over the defending champion Halifax Mooseheads on Friday.

City has reached new heights under manager Manuel Pellegrini as they transition from big spending/immediate impact to perennial contender. Yaya Toures seeming discontent Tuesday may complicate that, as does the little issue of Financial Fair Play.LOS ANGELES - For the Raptors, Saturday mornings flight back to Toronto couldnt come soon enough. Its that time of the year. Players are tired, or hurting, or both. Some are looking ahead to the events theyll be participating in during All-Star Weekend, others are looking forward to their midseason vacation time. Its been nine days since the Raptors set out on a five-game West Coast trip and the fatigue was evident as they backed into a 2-3 record on the excursion. "We cant use that as an excuse," Dwane Casey said after his team suffered their third loss in the last four games, falling 118-105 to the Clippers in LA Friday. "We knew that coming in, that were getting ready for the all-star break, mental fatigue is setting in, everybody is preparing for the break but its not here yet, we have games to go and business to take care of." After taking care of business in two of their first three games on the trip, Caseys team lost themselves in a pair of losses to the Kings - a bottom dweller in the West - and the Clippers, one of the conferences elite. The Raptors fell behind early, giving up 67 points in the first half of each game, committing a total of 70 fouls and putting their opponent on the line 105 times over the course of three days. The commonality, according to Casey, was a lack of mental and physical toughness against the likes of DeMarcus Cousins Wednesday and the duo of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan two days later. "The guys are down because they know that we physically didnt take care of business," he said. "The physicality of the game is something we have to get ready for, especially if were thinking about the playoffs because its a physical game in the paint, setting screens, rebounding, going to the basket. All those things are there if youre serious about making the playoffs." Overall, a 2-3 record on the trip is hardly disappointing, its probably on par with what was expected of them going in, realistically. However, they should lose some sleep over the way they ended the road swing. No one expected them to win on Wednesday, not against a scorned Clipper team coming off a tough loss at home to the defending champion Heat. After coming out flat again, Casey was forced to get creative midway through the third quarter, opting to deploy the hack-a-Jordan strategy, a maneuver designed to extend the game by putting a poor free throw shooter - this case, DeAndre Jordan - on the line. Jordan, a 44 per cent free throw shooter, made just 10 of his 22 tries from the line, 14 of those attempts were gift wrapped and delivered to him from Casey. The move was not popular amongst the hometown crowd but for a coach on the verge of defeat, why not take a shot? Although it shaved just two points off the Clippers 20-point lead, directly, it slowed the game down and took the home team out of their rhythm. "We had to do something," Casey said. "Physically they were just manhandling us in the paintt. Cameron Meredith Jersey. I thought that changed the game a little bit." Toronto would cut its deficit to nine going into the fourth quarter. By that point the Raptors had run out of gas, understandably so. Less than a week before All-Star Weekend, the Raptors are a beat up team. Kyle Lowry is battling a knee injury while both DeMar DeRozan and the slumping Amir Johnson are playing on sprained ankles. DeRozan was the one Raptor who looked at home in LA, in actuality he was. The Compton-born guard scored 36 points, the most hes ever had in nine career games at Staples Center, knocking down a career-high 17 free throws. After averaging 10.0 points on 31 per cent shooting in his first five career games back home, DeRozan has scored 28.5 on 52 per cent over his last four contests in LA. Its yet another sign of DeRozans growth on and off the floor in his fifth season. "Its always good to come home and see the family, or whatever, but I dont put as much pressure on myself as I did my first year or even my second year," said the first-time all-star. "I dont try to come out here and prove a point that Im from here or whatever, I just come here and play." Johnson spent most of Friday night chasing down Blake Griffin, who scored 36 points on 13-of-18 shooting in 28 minutes. It was an impossible task for a player that has been slowed by the injury for a week and a half. The nine-year vet is used to playing through pain and plans to continue doing so but he couldnt hide his frustration after the loss. "That nagging pain is just bothering me," said Johnson, who had eight points in 24 minutes against the Clippers. "I want to but there are just some plays I really cant get to the ball or make a play because my ankle just holds me back." "I feel like I can do a lot better. Im trying to baby it but at the same time Im trying to go hard out there. Once the schedule turns and I can rest it a little bit, Ill definitely come through. Lucky for Johnson and the rest of the ailing Raptors, theyll be en route back to Toronto Saturday after spending one more night on the road. There, theyll host the Pelicans and the Hawks before going their separate ways for the weekend, NBA all-star festivities. The schedule eases up the rest of the way. The Raptors - who have played 28 games on the road, most in the East - only have 13 more to go away from the Air Canada Centre. Fridays contest against the Clippers marked their last road game against a winning Western Conference team. "We want to compete every time we walk out but the main thing is were building and were getting better in some areas and some areas were not," said Casey. "The physicality department, thats going to take some more time for guys to figure that out. My thing is competing, you go out and compete and fight physically and then you let the chips fall where they may and there were some situations where I didnt think we competed physically."
