Zimbabwe Cricket Star Hafeez Says His Squad Was Unfairly Left Out
Zimbabwe cricket star Hafeez says his squad was unfairly left out.
A New Zealand cricket team, many called ‘scurrilous’ were left out of the tour to Pakistan in October.
They have now been replaced by a Zimbabwe men’s cricket squad, and they’re already looking at an uncertain future.
Hafeez says his players were not treated fairly
“I’ve been through this in life where you are put out in the middle of nowhere on your own.” Hafeez’s comments came during a live video chat with the media on Monday. “I have the same problems… my family and everything,” he told reporters.
But he said the team was unfairly left out and said they should have been part of the first part of a tour that included Australia, India and Sri Lanka. But then came the backlash and a call for him to quit.
“I was sitting in my house, on my own, and they said, ‘Hafeez, let’s take him away from your family and say goodbye’. [This is the only person I have] so I came on the phone. They said, ‘Hafeez, this is a team, it’s not just a few players.’ I told them if I was in my house on my own and we had this situation, I don’t know who I would put in it.”
“They made me come here on Monday and they told me about the media and how I am a ‘scurrilous individual’ and this whole thing just made me very scared.”
He said he has been in touch with Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) and that he was “frustrated at the treatment”.
“We have got some players who I know are good people and I want to make sure I look after them. We have got some good players as well so I want them to be at the forefront of the team.
Earlier today (17th Nov 2009), the New Zealand Cricket Board announced that the upcoming tour of Pakistan by Afghanistan had been called off due to heavy rain and the team could not travel by road.
The New Zealand players, and more particularly the captain, had been planning to travel on the return flight yesterday and the board had called the players back to Lahore via Dubai the previous evening.
With a tour against Pakistan in the offing, this meant that Australia and New Zealand were unable to travel by road to Lahore from Sydney.
However, a few of Afghanistan’s senior players decided to postpone their return flight back to Afghanistan the following day in protest, and the tour was extended until Monday.
The decision to cancel the tour of Pakistan was made not only at the board’s request, but also because of the protest of Afghanistan’s players.
While the board had originally decided to cancel the tour to avoid further disruption to preparations for the ICC World Twenty20, the players also felt that by cancelling the tour in this way it would set a bad precedent, and that a tour to Pakistan could be postponed indefinitely.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is the governing body of cricket in Pakistan.
The Pakistan Cricket Board was formed on 5 August 1946, and is headquartered in Karachi, Pakistan.
The Pakistan Cricket Board is a federal body consisting of 12 members.
Pakistan is a republic with a federal structure.
General Secretary is the highest elected position.
Hafeez’s comments on security concerns in New Zealand
In my opinion there are some good reasons to go for the option to use the public IP address range and a private IP address (private addressing) for a VPN in the cloud. In my view the latter option is much more secure. The reason is that while VPNs are quite popular in the public IP address range for the cloud, there are very few public IP addresses available in the private addressing options.
As I have observed, the majority of VPN’s out there are provided by the company that provided the data center equipment. In this case, I don’t think there is much difference between public IP addresses and private IP addresses so in this case I think it’s much more secure to use the private IP addresses.
So I guess the main purpose for using VPNs to get the private IP addresses is to use them within the company.
I’ve personally been using the public IP addresses for the cloud for about 6 months and I have found it secure. Because of the way my company provides my data to the public it’s possible to get a lot of data from these IP addresses. I can use the VPN for a private set of addresses or use the public IP addresses for my cloud.
All the recent announcements about more IP addresses in the public IP address range have not changed my opinion. I haven’t yet seen a significant change in the number of public IP addresses available.
However, I would like to add that the use of VPN’s by a large number of people is not a good way to use the IP addresses.
It’s very interesting to compare the number of public IP addresses available to the number that are actually used by the VPN service providers.
For that purpose I conducted a survey with the purpose to test the reliability and accuracy of the results. The data set contained 548 respondents and a random sample was taken for the final analysis. The survey was conducted through two methods – a phone and a personal email.

BLACKCAPS Arrival in New Zealand
A brief overview of the Black Caps (Black Caps were a group of Maori who left New Zealand for England over 100 years ago) to the new arrival of a new migrant from the North Island of New Zealand.
The Black Caps are a group of ethnic Maori from New Zealand who fled to England where they established settlements. Later when they returned to New Zealand, they began to settle there permanently.
The Black Caps were part of a group who departed the early settlement in the early eighteenth century from an area on the south coast of the North Island. The Black Caps came to the New Plymouth area in the mid-1800s. They began to settle on both sides of the Tasman Sea in what is now the Tasman District.
The Black Caps began to settle on the east coast of the North Island in the mid-1800s. They were to be found along the north coast from Dunedin to Christchurch. They were to be found in parts of Auckland, Queenstown, and Rotorua.
Soon after the arrival of Black Caps migrants, the local Maori began to oppose them and many Maori settlers began to move south. Black Caps migrants did not like this. One of the main reasons they left New Zealand was because they were opposed by the Maori and were not welcomed because the Maori were opposed to Maori settlers settling in their area. They wanted to go to the south. There was no place to go to the south of New Zealand. The Black Caps did not want to go south.
Eventually the Black Caps migrated to the area around Lake Taupo around the same time of year where Maori from Auckland were also moving south. The Black Caps did not want to go to the south, so they went to the north. What happened is that the Maori turned to English and Maori people on the northern side of the lake were forced to leave Maori territory for some time and moved south.
Some of these Maori people migrated to the south. One of the main reasons they left New Zealand was because they were opposed by the Maori and were not welcomed because the Maori were opposed to Maori settlers settling in their area.
Tips of the Day in Network Security
A collection of tips from security experts for those interested in keeping their network safe.
Today’s tips contain information on things such as using antivirus software to check for malicious software on your system and keep a watchful eye for any suspicious activity you can identify. Use the following as a basis for your security and network defense.
First, always check the antivirus software you have installed on your computer. This is to make sure that it is not capable of detecting malware. Malware can be harmful, so always test before you install. If you use Windows 7 or later, you can also run the updated version of Microsoft’s Internet Security Toolkit.
If there are a lot of suspicious activity or even computer infections in your computer, try to get rid of them all at once. In that case, some people say to disable “Safe Mode” on a computer. When you turn your computer off in Safe Mode, you should be able to do a bit of cleaning.
