Wasim Akram is set to rejoin the Pakistan side at the Asia Cup in Sharjah after initially opting out of the team following a row with the Pakistan Cricket Board. The controversy between the former Pakistani captain and the board erupted after he was not allowed to stay with his wife at the team's hotel. Pakistan play their first match against India tomorrow.

Bangladesh cricket authorities have approached their country's foreign office to help sign Sir Richard Hadlee as coach. Bangladesh sacked Mohinder Amarnath as coach last year after the team failed to qualify for the 1996 World Cup.
