biggest crowd in years. The tracks infield and campi Antworten

PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan underwent a heart surgery in England last week after medical reports confirmed he had blockages in his arteries. Shaharyar had a valve replaced successfully at Royal Brompton Hospital and was expected to return to his London residence later this month.Family sources confirmed Shaharyar had been shifted from the intensive-care unit to a ward and his recovery process was well on track. He is likely to be discharged from hospital in the next ten days but may take longer to return to a normal routine.Shaharyar has had diabetes for the last 20 years and while the condition was controlled through diet, it affected his heart. He recently complained of breathing trouble after a trip to Sri Lanka where he took over as president of the Asian Cricket Council.Shaharyar, 82, had recently received the backing of Pakistans Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is also the chief patron of the PCB, to continue as chairman until the end of his three-year term in August 2017. ESPNcricinfo understood, however, that Shaharyar may step down if doctors advised him three months rest and intensive care as part of his rehabilitation. He has been fulfilling his duties related to the PCB remotely, through phone calls and emails, during his time in London.According to the PCB constitution, in case of a chairmans absence from duty, the board of governors may elect an acting chairman from among the members. The acting chairman will have limited powers and will oversee the management of the board on a day-to-day basis. If the office of chairman was vacated for any reason, the PCBs constitution stated the Prime Minister of Pakistan can request the election commissioner to hold a fresh election. A source in the Prime Ministers office confirmed Shaharyar was given a go-ahead by Sharif in June but there could be a change in the coming months, subject to the political situation.The power struggle between Shaharyar and former chairman Najam Sethi, who leads the three-member executive committee, has been prominent in the PCB. The executive committees power has been limited to making recommendations but Sethi has exerted considerable influence over major decisions within the board, thus creating a rift with Shaharyar. It was understood that Shaharyars decision to step down could have paved the way for Sethi to once again take over the position of the PCB chairman. However, an official in the Prime Ministers office indicated that the tenures of both Shaharyar and Sethi might come to an end in the not-too-distant future, because both were direct nominees of the PCBs governing board.Vapormax Plus Baratas .

The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out.

After slipping from the summit during the week, the Gunners overcame struggling Crystal Palace 2-0 on Sunday thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlains second-half brace.LONG POND, Pa. -- Pocono CEO Brandon Igdalsky took refuge from the rain inside a garage stall that was being used as the site of the drivers meeting.His message Sunday morning to Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart and the rest of the field: I love you guys. But I dont want to see you tomorrow.Well, tough luck.Call it, Pocono Rainway.Rain washed out the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono Raceway and the 400-mile race will now run at 11 a.m. Monday. Martin Truex Jr. is on the pole and Kurt Busch tries to sweep Pocono in the tracks second Monday race of the season.The June Pocono race also was delayed a day. NASCAR said this was the first time a track had two rain-postponed races in the same season.This was NASCARs 10th postponed race since 2011. The 2012 rain-shortened race at Pocono was marred by lightning strikes that killed one fan and injured nine others.Mondays forecast seems cloudier than Kasey Kahnes chances to make the Chase. But NASCAR set the time an hour earlier than the green flag start on that June Monday to try to beat some of the rain and reach at least the halfway point for an official race.I feel bad for the fans more than anybody, Igdalsky said. We were going to have an unbelievable crowd here today.The track-drying Air Titans provided the only action at Pocono and, after morning rain had passed, there were clear skies at the scheduled 1:30 p.m. start. But about 90 minutes later, it started pouring at the track and the race was quickly called off.Kahne went on TV and bemoaned that he would have to delay a vacation to the Bahamas.Pocono had more pressing problems.While NASCAR tracks dont release attendance numbers, Igdalsky said Pocono was on pace for its biggest crowd in years. The tracks infield and camping areas were sold out, along with some of the higher-priced suites. And Monday races are a burden for everyone involved in NASCAR.A lot of our staff are volunteers and theyve got jobs tomorrow theyve got to get back to, he said. Theyve taken off Friday already. It definitely hits you in the purse sttrings.dddddddddddd. The possibility of two in one season, thats painful.Igdalsky said there was a Jeff Gordon bump in ticket sales when the retired four-time champion came back to drive for the injured Dale Earnhardt Jr. Igdalsky said it was hard to put an exact number on the number of additional tickets sold because of Gordons return because it coincided with the tracks usual final-weeks ticket sales push.For us, it was the perfect storm, Igdalsky said.Unfortunately for the track, the wrong kind hit Sunday.Kevin Harvicks 4-year-old son, Keelan, splashed around in a puddle. Some drivers took their dogs for a walk. Crew members stretched out on pit road and gazed at darkened clouds that hinted of the rain ahead.Even more Monday races rain loom at a track without lights such as Pocono in 2017 and beyond. NASCAR bumped start times at most tracks from the 1:30 p.m. window to around 3 p.m. or later next season, meaning one rain delay could lose a track for the day.Igdalsky lobbied NASCAR to keep his traditional and more fan-friendly start time.For us, 1 is a better time, he said. I understand the thought process behind it and Im going to support it.There are six races left until the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship driver field is set. Led by four-time winners Kyle Busch and Brad Keselowski, there are 11 slots seemingly set for race winners. Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon, Ryan Newman, Jamie McMurray and Kyle Larson are the four winless drivers perilously holding on to the final five spots.Game notesSunday would have been Justin Wilsons 38th birthday. The IndyCar driver was killed last August from injuries suffered in the race at Pocono. Igdalsky said the track was working with IndyCar for an appropriate tribute to the driver when the series returns on Aug. 21.IndyCar is back for the fourth straight season and Igdalsky refused to say if the series would return in 2017.Maybe, he said, laughing.
