Rohit Sharma is one of the top T20 batsmen after Virat Kohli: Robin Singh

Rohit Sharma is one of the top T20 batsmen after Virat Kohli: Robin Singh

first_imgMumbai Indians assistant coach Robin Singh heaped praise on skipper Rohit Sharma for his match-winning unbeaten 68 which guided the hosts to a comfortable six-wicket victory over Kolkata Knight Riders. (Points Table||Full Coverage)Batting first, KKR posted a competitive total of 174/5 in 20 overs, thanks to skipper Gautam Gambhir’s 45-ball 59. In reply, riding on skipper Rohit’s innings alongside Kieron Pollard’s quick-fire 17-ball 51 not out, the hosts chased down the target comfortably posting 178/4 in 20 overs.”No, he is been pretty successful in all formats, if you talk about Test cricket that is different ball game, but in the shorter formats he is one of the top batters after Virat Kohli,” Robin Singh said, lauding Rohit Sharma in the post-match press conference here on Thursday night. (Also read: Kieron Pollard lights up Wankhede in his 100th IPL game) “His (Rohit’s) game suits this format more than anybody else, he has got fantastic range of strokes, with our team there are lot of so he is able to play his game freely so they know…” Robin said. (Photos)The 52-year old also lauded Pollard’s power hitting at the end which helped the Mumbai Indians chase down the target with two overs to spare.”You saw what he meant today and in previous games. What is really important is that when you have someone like Pollard coming in at the backend and you have Jos Buttler coming in ahead of him, I think oppositions are never safe with any sort of score on the board… as you saw it’s just the question of one over, which changes the course of the game. People like Pollard actually you need to have in any team.”advertisement”He is with Barbados Trident. He plays in a similar fashion and his cricket has matured over the years. Last season he played similar knocks like this, right? Compared to initially when he came in, he has understood the responsibility as not somebody who can just strike the ball but actually somebody who is critical to the side. More importantly it is sending jitters to the opposition,” the former India all-rounder said.When asked if the toss was a factor, Robin said, “To be very frank, I don’t think dew was a factor today, I mean we checked the wicket and outfield when we went out for both the breaks and it was little dew and they had a pretty good start.””They (KKR) were 15 runs short where they should have been and 180 was a par score on this track — minimum 180. They ended up getting 170 despite dropping and we not fielding well, which we probably should have restricted them to 160.”last_img read more

Its been a great year for Indian badminton: Gopichand

Its been a great year for Indian badminton: Gopichand

first_imgMumbai, Dec 6 (PTI) National badminton coach, Pullela Gopichand, today expressed happiness at the performance this year of Indian shuttlers and termed Kidambi Srikanths feat of winning four Super Series titles as “phenomenal”.”Its been a great year. I think all the players have done well. At the beginning of the year if you had said this is what you would get this year, I would have taken it very happily,” said Gopichand here.”In the big events – World Championships or Super Series events, we have done well. Also varied people have done well. Last year was, may be, (P V) Sindhus year. This year mens singles has come off (well). Three of them winning Super Series titles, winning GP gold level – (HS) Prannoy and Sameer (Verma) winning. Overall it has been a good year. Now hoping for a good finish in Dubai (Super Series finals) to what has been a great year already,” he remarked.”We have a pretty cramped calendar in the world level. Considering that, what we have been able to manage has been good. Its a good stepping stone for the next year as well,” he noted.”To win four Super Series titles and becoming runner-up at one and, at the end of the year, reaching a ranking of world no. 2 is phenomenal. Not many players in world badminton (have achieved that). The only players who have achieved what he has achieved – we call them legends of the sport across time,” said Gopichand on Srikanths brilliant run this year.advertisementSrikanth had started his brilliant title-run by clinching the mens singles title in the Indonesian Super Series and followed it up by winning the singles Super Series crowns in Australia, Denmark and France.In between, the Hyderabad shuttler also finished runner-up to compatriot B Sai Praneeth in the Singapore SS and was a losing quarter finalist in the World Championships.”Hes 24 and has many more years to compete. (With) Lee Chong Wei at 34 and Lin Dan at 33 (still playing), we can expect that he has 8-10 years of badminton left in him. What he has achieved is phenomenal. What he can achieve, considering his potential, is unbelievable,” Gopichand gushed.On Sindhu, silver medal winner in womens singles at last years Rio Olympics, Gopichand said it was a fine display by the lanky shuttler to maintain such high levels the year after the sports spectacle in Brazil.”Sindhu has been good – Super Series wins in the India Open and Korea and finals of the Super Series in Hong Kong and the World Championship (silver) medal. To come back after an Olympic year and, in the next year, perform like that and finish off as world no. 2 is good.”She had problems with (Spains Olympic champion) Carolina (Marin), she beat her; with (Japans Akane), Yamaguchi, she beat her. She is improving as a player. I believe, the next year could be even better. She is just 22, young and has a lot of potential.”He also said that Saina Nehwal, bronze medallist in the 2012 London Games who has moved back to Hyderabad from Bengaluru after the World Championships, is showing what she is capable of after her injury last year during the Olympics.”We will have to work on a few aspects of her game. Its good that in the last few tournaments she had good performances – beating Carolina after a while and the match against Chen Yufei which she played. Overall she is showing that she is capable now. She needs to be fitter and also get back from her injury, as well as ensure she is physically stronger to win match after match,” said Gopichand.Looking ahead to next years Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia, and the Asian Games in Jakarta, Indonesia, Gopichand hoped that the shuttlerss display would be better than that at Glasgow, Scotland and Incheon, South Korea.”Every two years we have these big events – whether its Commonwealth Games, or Asian Games or the Olympics. We are hoping we will come out strongly. In 2014 there were good performances and hopefully we can better it.” PTI SSR NRB SDMlast_img read more

If courts say to extradite Huawei exec justice minister will have to

If courts say to extradite Huawei exec justice minister will have to

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s justice minister will have the final say on whether to send a Chinese business executive to face fraud charges in the United States, she said Wednesday.That could make Canada’s spot between two economic superpowers even more difficult.U.S. President Donald Trump’s musing about interfering in the case of Huawei’s chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou is fuelling Beijing conspiracy theories about Canada’s true intent behind detaining the company’s top executive.Canada has maintained that the rule of law is separate from politics, that the case against Meng will be judged fairly and independently. But if a court says someone should be extradited to faces charges in another country, the ultimate decision is up to a politician.Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said Wednesday that she takes her “extradition responsibilities and obligations very seriously,” and if Canada’s courts approve Meng’s extradition, “then as the minister of justice, I will ultimately have to decide on the issue of surrender of the person sought for extradition.”Therefore, Wilson-Raybould said in a statement, she wouldn’t say any more because that “would risk undermining both the independence of the court proceedings and the proper functioning of Canada’s extradition process.”“In order to safeguard due process and to respect the independence of the courts, it is essential that the Crown’s position in this matter, as in all court proceedings, be presented in the courtroom where it can be properly considered,” she said.But Trump complicated that position — one his own ambassador to Canada also advocated on Tuesday morning — when he told Reuters Tuesday evening he would “certainly intervene if I thought it was necessary” in Meng’s case, if it would help him forge a trade deal with China.China’s state-run media was already ridiculing Canada’s assertion that Meng would be dealt with fairly and transparently by an independent judiciary, the same view U.S. Ambassador Kelly Craft put forward.“I think we’re lonelier than we’ve been in a long, long time,” said David Mulroney, who served former Conservative prime minister Stephen Harper as his first foreign-policy adviser and later as ambassador to China. “(Trump) gave credibility to an outrageous Chinese accusation — that the RCMP basically works as an extension of the U.S. government to capture a hostage who can be used in their trade negotiations.”Roland Paris, who was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s first foreign-policy adviser, said Canada has for decades enjoyed the luxury of operating in “a very comfortable international context” but not any more.“Now, a lot of the assumptions that have guided our foreign policy are in question, including whether the United States has our back,” said Paris, a University of Ottawa international-affairs professor.Mulroney and Paris agree Canada has only one choice: stay true to its adherence to the rule of law and hope that Trump’s involvement can somehow be treated as one more impromptu comment by an unpredictable president.Both point to the fact that just hours before Trump sounded off, Craft was extolling the same separation of the law and politics as the Trudeau government.“Trump’s statements are as disconnected from the workings of the U.S. government as they are from reality,” said Mulroney. “We’re dealing with highly professional U.S. officials who are as committed to the rule of law as we are.”But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared to double down on Trump’s line on Wednesday in a televised interview with Fox and Friends.“We always have to balance American interests. Any time there’s a law enforcement engagement, we need to make sure we take foreign-policy … considerations into effect,” said Pompeo. “It’s totally appropriate to do so. The president’s mission is very clear. It’s America First, right?”Paul Evans, a China expert at the University of British Columbia, says the Chinese are listening and taking note.“From a realist Chinese perspective, the Trump comment and the followup from Pompeo signal that law and politics are not separable, something they know in their bones,” said Evans. “Here in Canada, abiding by the rule of law is a way of detaching the government from taking a position on a US-China conflict that they desperately want to duck. In this case we are neither hypocritical nor naive.”Trudeau reaffirmed Canada’s commitment to the rule of law again on Wednesday, “regardless of what goes on in other countries.”The prime minister simply has no alternative, despite the current hard realities, said Mulroney. “The alternative is we’re completely at the mercy of larger powers, who basically enforce our own laws on our territory.”Canada simply can’t abandon its reliance on the rules-based international order, no matter how hard that becomes because of rising authoritarianism, and the fact “the U.S. is a less reliable partner,” said Paris.“Canada has limited leverage in this emerging great-power struggle,” he said. “But we also have an interest in co-operation in maintaining co-operation with China where it’s mutually beneficial. Striking that balance will be increasingly difficult if the United States adopts a with-us-or-against-us attitude on China.”Mike Blanchfield, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN agency Italian energy company partner to combat hunger and climate change

7 December 2011The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the Italian energy company Enel announced today a new partnership to combat hunger and malnutrition while also reducing carbon emissions through the use of ‘green’ stoves and solar panels. The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the Italian energy company Enel announced today a new partnership to combat hunger and malnutrition while also reducing carbon emissions through the use of ‘green’ stoves and solar panels.The €8 million agreement was unveiled at the UN Climate Change Conference in Durban, South Africa, where Enel pledged its commitment to support WFP’s humanitarian and environmental protection programmes such as the Safe Access to Firewood and Alternative Energy in Humanitarian Settings (SAFE), which provides schools, community centres and poor households with high-efficiency cooking stoves to cook food rations distributed by WFP.SAFE also protects women against violence during firewood collection and helps combat deforestation and carbon emissions by using less fuel.WFP has already distributed 140,000 stoves in Sudan, Uganda, Sri Lanka and Haiti. Through the new partnership, Enel and WFP will develop a business model to generate carbon emission reduction credits by analyzing the use of ‘green’ stoves.Enel will also install solar panels to cut greenhouse gas emissions at UN humanitarian response sites used to store and handle emergency supplies in Italy, Panama, the United Arab Emirates and Ghana. In addition, Enel Cuore, an independent, non-profit organization within the Enel Group, will support WFP’s activities in Latin America where the group is present.The partnership is the result of a framework agreement for cooperation was signed in June 2011 by WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran and Enel chief executive officer Fulvio Conti. read more

UNICEF report on nutrition shows progress in combating childhood stunting

UNICEF report on nutrition shows progress in combating childhood stunting

A United Nations nutrition report released today shows that progress has been made in recent years in addressing stunting in children, and calls for increased efforts to accelerate a response to a condition that affects some 165 million children across the world.“Stunting can kill opportunities in life for a child and kill opportunities for development of a nation,” said the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Anthony Lake. “Our evidence of the progress that is being achieved shows that now is the time to accelerate it.” One in four of all children less than five years of age is stunted because of chronic under-nutrition in crucial periods of growth. The damage done to a child’s body and brain by stunting is irreversible. It drags down performance at school and later at work, and puts children at a higher risk of dying from infectious diseases.The UNICEF report, ‘Improving Child Nutrition: The achievable imperative for global progress’ notes that a key to success against stunting is focusing attention on pregnancy and the first two years of a child’s life.An estimated 80 per cent of the world’s stunted children live in just 14 countries. The report highlights successes in scaling up nutrition and improving policies in 11 countries: Ethiopia, Haiti, India, Nepal, Peru, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sri Lanka, Kyrgyzstan, the United Republic of Tanzania and Viet Nam.Stunting is reduced through a series of simple and proven steps such as improving women’s nutrition, early and exclusive breastfeeding, providing additional vitamins and minerals as well as appropriate food – especially in pregnancy and the first two years of a child’s life.In the Maharashtra state in India, the percentage of stunted children dropped from 39 per cent in 2005 to 23 per cent in 2012 largely because of support to frontline workers who focus on improving child nutrition.In Peru, stunting fell by a third between 2006 and 2011 following an initiative that lobbied political candidates to sign a commitment to reduce stunting in children under five by five per cent over the span of five years and to lessen inequities between urban and rural areas. Ethiopia cut stunting from 57 per cent to 44 per cent between 2000 and 2011 by implementing a national nutrition programme, providing a safety net in the poorest areas and boosting nutrition assistance through communities.The report says that existing solutions and the work of new partnerships represent an unprecedented opportunity to address child under-nutrition through countries accelerating progress through national projects coordinated with donor support and measurable targets. read more

Bitter sweet victory for Richard Ashcroft as Rolling Stones stars hand over

Bitter sweet victory for Richard Ashcroft as Rolling Stones stars hand over

The late Allen Klein, of ABKCO Records which owned the Rolling Stones catalogue up to 1970 including the sample in question, moved to protect his copyright in a legal negotiation which left Ashcroft signing over rights to the song and its lyrics.More than 20 years later, after his management approached Jagger and Richards directly to appeal for the return of the song, the Rolling Stones members agreed.Speaking at The Ivors 2019 after winning an award for his outstanding contribution to British music, Ashcroft said: “We’ve been working over the last few months, years, 20 years.”As of last month Mick Jagger and Keith Richards signed over all their publishing for Bitter Sweet Symphony.“Which is a truly kind and magnanimous thing to do, they didn’t need to do it.”As of last month, thank you so much Keith Richards and Mick Jagger, for acknowledging me as the writer of a f—— masterpiece – it’ll live forever.” Mick Jagger and Keith RichardsCredit: Mark Allan Mick Jagger and Keith Richards It centres on a sample of a four second sample of an Andrew Loog Oldham orchestral recording of The Last Time, used as a loop in the backing track.While permission for the use of the recording was obtained, that did not extend to permission for the use of the song with copies of The Verve’s album Urban Hymns already created and distributed around the world ready to be released before the error was noticed. Richard Ashcroft has regained rights to his song Bitter Sweet Symphony after more than two decades, after Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards agreed to hand over their legal entitlement to royalties.The Verve singer lost the rights to his most recognisable song in 1997 thanks to a four-second orchestral sample of Rolling Stones song The Last Time used as a backing track.On Thursday, Ashcroft disclosed that Jagger and Richards had returned them to him as a “truly kind and magnanimous thing to do”, after his management approached them directly to appeal.All future royalties that would have gone to the pair for Bitter Sweet Symphony will now go to Ashcroft, and they have removed their names from the credits for the track.The case had gone down in music folklore as a landmark copyright dispute, held up as a cautionary tale by some and an injustice by others.
