IPL 2011: Chennai Super Kings vs Delhi Daredevils- CSK win by 18 runs

first_imgSkipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Subramaniam Badrinath scored half-centuries in Chennai’s 18-run win over Delhi during an IPL match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chepauk, Chennai, on Thursday. Score | PhotosChasing 177, Delhi could only manage to score 158/6 against a superior Chennai side in this 56th IPL match.Keeping in mind the massive 177-run target Delhi openers Naman Ojha and David Warner got off to a quick start. But, the quick start came to an abrupt halt in the third over when Ojha took the aerial route off Chennai paceman Albie Morkel. The ball took a long loop only to land in the safe hands of Shadab Jakati at mid-off when the team total was 30. Ojha scored 25.Soon new man Colin Ingram too was back in the dugout after a superlative catch by Dwayne Bravo off R Ashwin saw him get out on 7. And Delhi were down to 54/2 on the first ball of the 8th over.Bravo not just showed his prowess in the field but also performed with the ball. He got rid of Delhi opener David Warner. Warner tried to pull Bravo, but Murali Vijay cut short his stroke by taking a neat catch in the deep. Warner departed on 21 and Delhi lost their third wicket on 64 in the 10th over.On the first ball of the 16th over, a turner off R Ashwin uprooted Venugopal Rao’s off stump and he fell for 30 and Delhi were down to 107/4.Bravo struck again in the 18th over and got rid of captain James Hopes, leading the side in the absence of captain Virender Sehwag, cheaply even as Delhi were reduced to 127/5 and were looking down the barrel.advertisementIn the last over Delhi Andrew McDonald fell to Doug Bollinger and Delhi were 150/6 with four balls remaining in their innings.Chennai inningsSkipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Subramaniam Badrinath scored half-centuries as Chennai posted a commanding 176/4 against Delhi.Earlier, Chennai captain M.S. Dhoni won the toss and elected to bat in the 56th IPL match of the season. But Chennai failed to bag an early advantage as Delhi paceman Irfan Pathan got rid of opener Michael Hussey in the sixth ball of the innings trapping him leg-before when Chennai were batting 6.Post that setback, Chennai opener Murali Vijay and left-hand batsman Suresh Raina tried to get the innings back on track, but in the sixth over Delhi paceman Varun Aaron, touted as the fastest bowler in the country, scalped Raina on 14 with Pathan performing the final rites at long on. Chennai lost their second wicket on 41.Later Murali Vijay and S Badrinath got going against the Delhi attack, but their partnership too did not last long as Delhi medium-pacer Ajit Agarkar despatched Vijay in the 11th over as Chennai lost their third wicket on 68. Vijay scored 35 off 33 balls.Then Chennai skipper M.S. Dhoni hit a couple of good shots towards the fence to raise his team’s tempo.Soon Dhoni and S Badrinath got going against Delhi bowlers, thwarting their attack, stealing the runs and putting those odd ones past the boundary. Gradually and steadily the Chennai run rate started to increase.Finally, S Badrinath was run out on 55 in a bid to increase the run rate in the last over off Irfan Pathan. But, the damage had already been done as Badrinath and skipper M.S Dhoni scored 96 runs for the fourth wicket.Post Badrinath’s dismissal, Dhoni hit two over the fence shots even as the last over fetched 17 runs and Chennai ended their innings on 176/4. Dhoni remained unbeaten on 63.last_img read more

Heading for Indian Grand Prix? Avoid Greater Noida and Yamuna Expressway

first_imgTraffic officials have asked those not heading for the Indian Grand Prix to avoid the Greater Noida Expressway and the Yamuna Expressway on Sunday.The officials have predicted rise in the volume of traffic plying on these two major roads thanks to the annual premier racing event taking place at the Buddh International Circuit (BIC).Though the actual event would take place between 3 and 4.30 pm, events on the sidelines lined up before the main race are expected to fetch heavy rush, amounting to the increased flow of traffic from 11.30 am onwards.The heaviest volume of traffic on the Noida-Greater Noida Expressway and Yamuna Expressway (from Zero Point to BIC) is anticipated to occur between 1 pm and 3pm and between five and seven in the evening.The district traffic police said they have tried to cause less inconvenience to commuters by making the least number of diversions, unlike last year, when traffic was diverted most major stretches.last_img read more

Oppo A3s vs Realme 1: Which Oppo phone is worth buying at Rs 10,990

first_imgOppo recently launched the A3s budget smartphone in India which is priced at Rs 10,990. One of the biggest highlights of this phone is that it is the cheapest in the market right now with a display notch. This means you’re getting a near bezel-less display that is usually found in more expensive phones. It is also the second notched phone from Oppo following the Oppo F7 for the Indian market.The Oppo A3s will of course go up against phones from Xiaomi, Nokia and even Asus, among others. But we’re not looking at any of these phones today. Interestingly, the A3s also goes up against another phone that’s part of Oppo. We’re talking about the Reame 1 which is the first phone from Oppo’s sub-brand Realme and was launched in India a couple of months ago. The Realme 1 starts under Rs 10,000 and goes up to Rs 13,999. Notably, there’s a middle variant that costs Rs 10,990, which is the same price as the Oppo A3s. This is bound to cause some confusion among potential Oppo fans on which phone makes more sense for the price.– The Oppo A3s brings a notched display which allows for a bigger screen in a compact form factor. It sports a 6.2-inch super full-screen HD+ display, which is one of the tallest screens you’ll find in this segment. That being said, this is a 720p display when compared to the Realme 1 which offers a slightly smaller 6-inch screen but with a full-HD+ display. Unlike the Oppo A3s, the Realme 1 does not come with a notch and offers symmetrical bezels and an 18:9 display.advertisement– Both the Oppo A3s and Realme 1 offer glossy rear panels, making them look almost similar in that they both try to look premium from a distance. The A3s is offered in Red and Dark Purple colours while the Realme 1 comes in Silver, Solar Red and Diamond Black colours. — The Oppo A3s comes with some underwhelming hardware compared to what the Realme 1 offers for its price. The former gets a Snapdragon 450 chipset coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, while the Realme 1 gets a more powerful Helio P60 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage for the exact same price. This a pretty one-sided battle here as the Realme 1 offers a chipset that is seen inside the more expensive Oppo F7.– The two areas where the Oppo A3s may have an edge over the Realme 1 is with regards to the rear camera and battery. The A3s gets a dual rear camera setup with a 13MP + 2MP configuration which means better support for bokeh shots. The Realme 1 gets a single 13-megapixel sensor on the back. On the front, both the phones offer an 8-megapixel selfie camera.– The Oppo A3s also houses a larger 4230mAh battery, which will make sure your device doesn’t run out of juice too soon. The Realme 1 on the other hand comes with a 3,410mAh battery, which will offer around a day’s worth of charge on an average.– Both the Realme 1 and Oppo A3s run Android 8.1 Oreo with Oppo’s custom ColorOS out-of-the-box so as far as software goes, you’re going to get a similar experience. That being said, you’re likely to see some difference in performance with the Realme 1 expected to be a lot smoother thanks to the amount of memory you’re getting. Both the phones also miss out on a fingerprint sensor and offer only face unlock for biometric login.– While the Oppo A3s brings a bigger battery and a dual camera setup, but as an overall package the phone seems to wane in front of the Realme 1, which offers a lot more at the same price. Not only does the Realme 1 bring a full-HD+ resolution, but it also packs a more capable and powerful processor along with more memory and storage.last_img read more

Brooks England celebrates 150 years with exclusive bicycle releases

first_img Yes, You Can Wear Boots to the Office: Here are the Best Pairs Editors’ Recommendations Affordable Watch Hunting: 10 Best Timex Watches For Men To help celebrate its 150 year anniversary, bicycle saddle manufacturer Brooks England has teamed up with the likes of Brompton and Condor Cycles to release an exclusive new product line called Dashing Bikes. In theory, the company intends to partner with some of cycling’s most popular brands to create a limited run, yet commemorative, Brooks Bicycle to be sold worldwide.Related: SpeedX uses Kickstarter to launch the Leopard smart bikeThroughout the rest of 2016, Brooks England’s various collaborations plan to be installed in a rotating monthly display at its flagship Covent Garden store in London. If you at all consider yourself a bike enthusiast then hop on the collection quick, these won’t stick around for long.Though the collection itself will carry with it a moniker of Brooks England’s 150th anniversary, the company also decided to adorn each release with one unifying theme: copper. To Brooks, copper signifies a versatile and elegant material that’s not only shown up in company products in the past, but has played an integral role in many of its releases.Take the Brooks England saddle, for example. The attached copper rivet native to the saddle is one of the releases most noticeable features and designs. While the partnering companies figure out a way to incorporate this theme, Brooks is also hard at work designing complimentary saddles and accessories to expertly mesh with the releases.“To be able to enlist the support of such eminent builders and brands is a testament to the brand’s appeal throughout the cycling world and a fascinating insight into the way Brooks is perceived worldwide,” reads the collection’s press release.Be it the more traditionally designed bicycle from the Sweden-based Skeppshult or the high-seated, folding bicycle design from Brompton, the line has no shortage of diversity. In addition to these collaborations, Brooks also pulled in help from Japan’s toykobike, Finland’s Pelago, and Salsa from the United States. Though Brooks is based primarily in England, the company always intended to look outside the United Kingdom to commemorate 150 years in an effort to take the celebration worldwide. Considering its impressive lineup of releases planned for 2016, it’s clear the party won’t be coming to an end anytime soon.

Patrick Brown enters Ontario Tory leadership race

first_imgTORONTO – Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives plunged deeper into turmoil Friday as former leader Patrick Brown, who stepped down amid sexual misconduct allegations weeks ago, vowed to reclaim his old job bolstered by what he called a groundswell of support from the party grassroots.The 39-year-old Barrie, Ont., politician officially joined the race to lead the Tories shortly before a registration deadline, making him the fifth candidate to vie for the top post and stirring more controversy at a time when the party is trying to get back on course.Brown, who has been waging a campaign to redeem himself in the public eye in recent days, said he found the strength to make his resurgence after hearing from the party faithful and believes he is the best placed to take on the Liberals in the spring election.“I think my name has been cleared and now it’s about getting Ontario back on track,” he said at the party’s Toronto headquarters.“This isn’t about me, this isn’t about the PC party, this is about making sure that on June 7, the Progressive Conservative party is successful,” he said.“The support we’ve been getting across the province has just been so encouraging…frankly, it changed my opinion. This is not what I was thinking about but the support of the party membership has really inspired me.”Support for Brown is far from unanimous, however. Just hours before joining the leadership race, Brown was kicked out of the Tory caucus, a decision that means he will sit as an independent when the legislature resumes on Tuesday.Experts said his candidacy could exacerbate tensions within the party and expose the Tories — who had been leading in the polls — to attacks from their political rivals as the province heads to the polls.“It certainly throws the party into even more turmoil and it’s already in a lot of turmoil,” said Jonathan Malloy, a political science professor at Carleton University in Ottawa.“I can’t see that he’s going to win the race but he can certainly do a lot to mix things up. But I’m not sure it’s going to help him or the party in the long run,” he said. “It’s becoming more about clearing Patrick Brown’s name than what’s best for the Ontario PC party.”Brown’s ouster from caucus suggests not everyone in the party is behind him, said Nelson Wiseman, a political expert at the University of Toronto.His candidacy could also give ammunition to the Liberals, who may question why the party is considering handing over the reins to a man accused of sexual misconduct, he said.Brown fought to clear his name over the last week, alleging two women who spoke out against him in late January were lying and possibly manipulated by his political enemies inside and outside the party. He has also vowed to sue CTV News, which broadcast the allegations. CTV has said it stands by its reporting.Brown’s run for the party leadership has already proved polarizing, however, with some of his competitors saying it would pull attention away from what should be the party’s real objectives — defeating the Liberals.“Patrick Brown made the right decision to step down. A leadership election is not the place for him to clear his name,” Toronto lawyer and businesswoman Caroline Mulroney said on Twitter. “Our focus should remain on beating (Premier) Kathleen Wynne in less than 100 days. This is a distraction from that and I am disappointed.”Former Toronto city councillor Doug Ford said in a statement that the party is stronger without Brown, citing a boost in fundraising and memberships since the former leader resigned.“The Ontario PC Party needs to focus on defeating the (Kathleen) Wynne Liberals in June,” he said.Former Tory legislator Christine Elliott, who came in second to Brown in the last leadership race, also stressed the importance of unity ahead of the spring election.“With fewer than 100 days, now is a time for unity. I am the leader that can unite the party and beat Kathleen Wynne,” she said in a statement.Social conservative advocate Tanya Granic Allen, who is also running, did not issue a statement, but during Thursday’s leadership debate she accused Brown and corruption and said he “left the party in tatters.”In the days following Brown’s departure, interim Tory leader Vic Fedeli vowed to “root out the rot” within the party ranks. An internal audit ordered by Fedeli found a significant discrepancy in the party’s membership numbers, indicating the Tories had roughly 67,000 fewer members than the 200,000 claimed by Brown.The party also decided to hold new nomination contests in two ridings after reviewing races plagued by allegations of voting irregularities under Brown’s tenure.The party’s president, Jag Badwal, said Brown’s application will follow the same due process as the other four candidates.The Liberals, meanwhile, said it doesn’t matter who leads the Tories because the party plans to roll back a planned increase to the minimum wage regardless of who takes over for Brown.Ontario’s New Democrats said the Progressive Conservatives are not in a position to govern themselves, much less the province.last_img read more

UN food agency plans 6month emergency operation in Bangladesh

29 November 2007The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced a $52 million, six-month plan to provide emergency aid to 2.2 million Bangladeshis affected by the recent cyclone. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) today announced a $52 million, six-month plan to provide emergency aid to 2.2 million Bangladeshis affected by the recent cyclone.The aim is to avoid a repeat of the surge in malnutrition rates that typically follows a cyclone in Bangladesh, the agency said. “This time, WFP will start longer-term distributions to families with hopes of preventing increases in malnutrition throughout the region,” said WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran. “While immediate food aid such as high energy biscuits continue to be rushed into the cyclone-hit areas, WFP is now ready to begin a longer-term, more comprehensive food assistance programme that will get nutritious foods directly to the children who need it the most,” said WFP Bangladesh Representative Douglas Broderick.The emergency operation will follow the work of a just-completed UN assessment which found that there are approximately 4.7 million people in the worst affected districts and 2.2 million people are in need of immediate food assistance.When the cyclone hit on 15 November, affecting more than 4 million Bangladeshis, WFP rushed in aid to thousands of the most vulnerable victims. The agency has delivered more than 300 metric tons of biscuits and more than 430 tons of rice to those in need.UN agency provides seeds and tools to over 110,000 farmers in southern AfricaAiming to secure the next harvest in three Southern African countries, the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has distributed over 1,000 tons of seeds, as well as fertilizer and tools, to over 110,000 poor farmers in the region.“The more we can support quality farm outputs and help diversify crops and strengthen capacities, the fewer people will need food aid and other handouts next season,” said Anne Bauer, Director of FAO’s Emergency Operations and Rehabilitation Division. The $7 million operation in in Lesotho, Mozambique and Swaziland should service an estimated 50,000 hectares of crops, the agency said.The relief was distributed using a voucher system pioneered the non-governmental organization Catholic Relief Services which allowed farmers attending mobile fairs to choose what to purchase among the seeds, fertilizer, tools and tillage services on offer.The aid comes to a region hit by a high death toll from AIDS which has left many rural households and orphans in the care of grandparents. Farmers there must also cope with crop failure caused by successive years of drought and inclement weather. read more

UN condemns massive vehicle bomb attack in Kabul that leaves scores dead

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, the Security Council and the UN in Afghanistan have strongly condemned Saturday’s massive vehicle bomb attack on a street near Government buildings in the Afghan capital, Kabul, which reportedly left 95 people dead and scores wounded.The Taliban have claimed responsibility for the deadly incident, in which the attackers reportedly used a vehicle painted to look like an ambulance, including bearing the distinctive medical emblem, what the UN Assistance Mission in the country, known as UNAMA, flagged as a “clear violation of international humanitarian law.” In a statement from his Spokesman, Mr. Guterres said that indiscriminate attacks against civilians are grave violations of human rights and international humanitarian law and can never be justified. “Those responsible for today’s attack must be brought to justice,” he added.The Secretary-General extended his deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wished a speedy recovery to those injured. He also expressed solidarity with the Government and people of Afghanistan.Separately, Tadamichi Yamamoto, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan and head of UNAMA, noted that the explosion occurred near a High Peace Council facility in a civilian-populated area of Kabul. “While the Taliban claim suggested the purpose of the attack was to target police, a massive vehicle bomb in a densely populated area could not reasonably be expected to leave civilians unharmed,” he emphasized. Calling the attacks “nothing short of an atrocity,” the UNAMA chief said those who organized and enabled it must be brought to justice and held to account.He reiterated that under no circumstances are such attacks justifiable, and he called on the Taliban to uphold their obligations under international humanitarian law, at all times.Issuing its own condemnation, the UN Security Council said the “heinous and cowardly terrorist attack” resulted in at least 95 people killed and 158 injured.The members of the Council underlined the need to hold perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism accountable and bring them to justice. read more

David George, a South African cyclist and former teammate of Lance Armstrong, admitted on Tuesday to using the blood-boosting drug Erythropoietin (EPO) after failing a doping test on Aug. 29.”His biological passport indicated suspicious activity and that triggered a targeted test for EPO,” SAIDS chief executive Khalid Galant said in announcing the positive test Tuesday. ”A subsequent urine test came back positive for the banned EPO drug.”George is now facing a two-year ban from Cycling of South Africa, but is provisionally suspended until a final decision is reached.He cycled with U.S. Postal Service team in 1999 and 2000, alongside recently banned Armstrong. George said he realizes that he will face a ban as well and is prepared for what the CSA decides.”I know the result will ultimately be the same. This decision will be communicated to Cycling South Africa (CSA) and Drug-Free Sport shortly and according to protocol,” George said in a statement: ”I fully understand the consequences of my admission and will bear the results of this.”In October, Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles and banned for life by the International Cycling Union for his use of steroids, EPO and blood transfusions. Multiple teammates testified against Armstrong in the report issued by the U.S. Anti-doping Agency.While George waits to hear from the CSA, he has already started to lose sponsors despite apologizing. Nedbank has withdrawn its sponsorship from his current 360Life team.”Nedbank has a zero tolerance towards the use of any banned substances or performance enhancing drugs and does not condone or support such use in any sport,” the South African bank said.This is one of George’s lowest moments as a cyclist after having a successful career. He won the silver medal in the road race at 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne and bronze in the time trials in the Kuala Lumpur Games in 1998. George also represented South Africa at the 1996 and 200 Olympics.”Cycling, as you know, has been a confusing space, and although it has given me incredible moments it has also given me experiences that no person or young athlete should have to go through,” George said.Now he must figure out how to get over this mountain in his life. read more

Watch Game 7 Of The World Series With FiveThirtyEight By Reading Our

In less than a week, you may have heard, there’s a midterm election in the United States of America. This is sort of a big deal for us at FiveThirtyEight. Such a big deal that our estimable tech team of Jeremy Weinrib and Paul Schreiber arranged a fancy live-blogging platform so you can snuggle up next to us for hours on election night. It’ll be cozy.We’ve known for weeks that we’d need to give the platform a test drive, and we decided that we’d do that Wednesday, on the second night of the NBA season. We’d get together our crew of basketball writers (the ones who wrote our NBA team previews), buy some pizzas and use an algorithm to project whether Giannis Antetokounmpo has finally stopped growing.But as the San Francisco Giants discovered last night, Jake Peavy has a habit of ruining the best-laid plans.About the time Game 6 of the World Series passed a 95 percent win probability, we made the call to scuttle the NBA live blog. Instead, you’ll get to hang with us as we watch Game 7. We’ll argue that Jeremy Guthrie shouldn’t pitch more than three innings, locate where the Giants dynasty of the past five seasons would rank compared to others and, Yost-willing, debate the merits of the sacrifice bunt.It’s going to be great. Or a total disaster. Come and find out which. 8 p.m. EDT Wednesday. Here on FiveThirtyEight. read more

PM join us at your own pace

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Australia is an immigrant country and multiculturalism is at the heart of the Australian story, said Prime Minister Tony Abbott this week, while addressing an ethnic media conference in Melbourne. “I want people to join the team, but there is no Australian test, and the whole point of multiculturalism is to allow people to join the team in their own way and at their own pace,” said the prime minister, who went on to describe his position on multiculturalism as a “very small l liberal, if you like”.“Except for the indigenous people every single Australian is a migrant, or the descendant of migrants. We should always remember that, particularly when questions are raised about integration and attachments. While those who were born here never had to consciously opt for Australia, every single person who comes here has deliberately, consciously, willingly opted for Australia, he or she has voted with his or her feet for Australia,” said Mr Abbott. In a wide ranging interview the Prime Minister of Australia amongst others referred to the back down of his government in relation to section 18C of the Race Discrimination Act and the name issue of Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, (FYROM). He also committed his support for an expanded export oriented education system, talked about the guiding principles of his foreign policy, clarified certain issues of his new proposed tougher standing on terrorism and indicated that migrants should be prepared to bear the costs of bringing to Australia their elderly parents.“This is a government which is committed to multicultural Australia and one of the reasons why we decided to drop the proposed changes to section 18C of the Race Discrimination Act was because we don’t want to be needlessly divided.I made the call in the interest of community harmony, in the interest of trying to ensure that as far as it is humanly possible Australians are pulling in the same direction. It’s not often governments and Prime Ministers say we didn’t get it right and I’m prepared to accept that on that particular issue we didn’t get it right,” said the Prime Minister.According to Mr Abbott the three guiding foreign policy principles of his Coalition government are: “We advance our interests, we protect our citizens and we uphold our values.”Asked about why Australia does not recognise FYROM with its own self proclaimed constitutional name, as other countries do, Tony Abbott said: “It’s a long time since I turned my attention to FYROM as we used to call it in those days. Our natural predisposition is to call countries what they wish to be called, in some instances, for reasons of international diplomacy, we don’t follow the general rule. I’m going to pass on that question. I’ll come back to you”, said the Prime Minister, to the journalist who asked the question.Speaking about International Education, he described it as a very important Australian export industry and that he would like to see it expanded. Education Minister Christopher Pyne and Immigration and Border Protection Minister Scott Morrison are talking with the sector in order to ensure this can happen he said, whilst emphasising that he would like to see a much greater student exchange program between Australia and other regional countries. Addressing the issue of possible threats of terrorist acts inside Australia he said that some of the announced extra 630 million dollars that will be allocated will be used to boost biometric screenings in airports, the presence of ASIS abroad and the ability of ASIO to monitor more people in Australia, once they come back from possible trouble spots abroad.“It is in the interest of every single Australian that we are protected against potential internal terrorist threats. It’s particularly in the interest of our migrant communities that we are protected against potential domestic terrorism, because there are few things that will strain our social fabric as much as a major terrorist event here in Australia. It will strain our social fabric. As Prime Minister my first duty as far as it is humanly possible, is to maintain the safety and the unity of our country,” he said.“I think it is very important that as far as it is possible, when you come to the new world you are focused to your new home. Naturally, you will cherish what you bring from your old home, but it is the new home and the future rather than the old home and the past which should be our fundamental focus,” he stressed.Pressed by a relevant Neos Kosmos question, Prime Minister Tony Abbott qualified his words by stating in his concluding remarks that he is not referring to entire communities when he talks about national security, but to individual people “Who have left this country to engage in terrorism abroad” and then come back home. The Prime Minister was accompanied in his news conference by the Minister for Social Services Kevin Andrews who justified the inclusion of the portfolio of multiculturalism and citizenship in his own Department as a deliberate government policy aiming at providing integrated settlement services to all migrants.last_img read more
