Netanyahu says Israel, UAE to cooperate in fight against coronavirus – Times of India

JERUSALEM: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday that Israel and the United Arab Emirates would cooperate in the fight against the coronavirus - a possible boost to Israeli efforts to normalise relations with Gulf Arab countries.

Last week, the UAE's minister for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, said it could work with Isra...

Pravin Tambe applies for CPL draft but has to retire first for BCCI NOC | Cricket News – Times of India

(TOI Photo)MUMBAI: Veteran Mumbai leg spinner Pravin Tambe has put his name for the Caribbean Premier League players' draft but BCCI is unlikely to give him permission unless the 48-year-old announces retirement from Indian domestic cricket.

That was exactly what Yuvraj Singh did before he went to play in the Global T20 league in Canada. "Tambe has to retire in order to play foreign leagues. In any case, the ...
