Tribute to the Great Legend, The King of Pop "MICHAEL JACKSON"

Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American recording artist and entertainer. The seventh child of the Jackson family, he debuted on the professional music scene at the age of 11 as a member of The Jackson 5 and began a solo career in 1971 while still a member of the group. Referred to as the "King of Pop" in subsequent years, four of his solo studio albums are among the world's best-selling records: Off the Wall (1979), Bad (1987), Dangerous (1991) and HIStory (1995), while his 1982 Thriller is the world's best-selling record of all time.

The Jackson 5 signed a new contract with CBS Records in June 1975, joining the Philadelphia International Records division, later Epic Records. As a result of legal proceedings, the group was renamed The Jacksons. After the name change, the band continued to tour internationally, releasing six more albums between 1976 and 1984. From 1…

Pakistan lifts 2009 ICC World Twenty20 Cup

Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by eight wickets to win the World Twenty20 title in convincing fashion at Lord's on Sunday.

Sri Lanka were restricted to 138 for six wickets in their 20 overs, with Pakistan cruising to victory with eight balls to spare.

Man of the match Shahid Afridi followed up an excellent spell of bowling with an unbeaten 54 to steer Pakistan home.

He shared an unbroken stand of 76 with Shoaib Malik (24 not out) to spark wild scenes of celebration at the home of cricket.

Pakistan Team gave Pakistanis back home reason to cheer as the cricket-mad nation.

Thank you so Much Pakistan Team
Pakistan team dedicated this winning trophy to
Bob Woolmer (late) former Pakistan Cricket team Coach
Pakistan captain Younus Khan said, Bob Woolmer a great loss to Pakistan, I can never forget Bob, with his sincere and untiring efforts he could have lifted Pakistan cricket to top level

It will be a dream come true when the Winning team lifts the T20 World Cup

Pakistan had shocked the cricketing world by beating a champion-looking South African side and Sri Lanka easily overcame the West Indian challenge to enter the finals.

The Pakistanis will rely on the individual brilliance of Shahid Afridi, who has almost suddenly become their ‘go-to’ man in this tournament, but he will need support from the likes of Kamran Akmal, Younus Khan, Saeed Ajmal and Umar Gul to deliver the goods. Akmal has done well ever since he was promoted to the opening slot, while Younus Khan has been Pakistan’s best scorer. Umar Gul’s bowling at the death will test the best of the Sri Lankan batsmen, while Ajmal’s spin has almost been unplayable and it will be interesting to see how the Sri Lankans go about batting against him.

For Sri Lanka, their main worry will be the lack of form that most batsmen – save T.Dilshan – have exhibited over the time of this tournament. Sanath Jayasuriya has almost forgotten his big hits and has looked like a pale shadow of his own past, wh…

Pakistan Vs South Africa (1st Semi-Final) Preview

Proteas not to take Pakistan lightly

After 13 long days, we’re finally here at the business end of the competition. South Africa, favourites to win the title, and Pakistan, who’ve peaked at just the right time to make it to the last four, will take on each other in the first semi-final of the ICC World Twenty20 2009 at Trent Bridge later today.

On the basis of current form, Pakistan are no match to a formidable South African side. However, the tricky format that Twenty20 cricket is, coupled with the fact that Pakistan can lift their game to beat even the best in the business, today’s match promises to make for exciting viewing.

Historically, South Africa have known to choke in the big games. But under the able leadership of Graeme Smith, South Africa will be hoping to extend their 7-match winning streak. The Proteas have been termed the best ‘well rounded’ team of all the teams competing in the tournament; the top order – which will be boosted by the return of Jacques Kallis – has been i…
