India vs England: Want to score most hundreds for England, says Jonny Bairstow | Cricket News – Times of India

PUNE: England opener Jonny Bairstow, who smashed a match-winning 124 in the second ODI, on Friday said he aims to score the most number of hundreds for his country. Bairstow along with Ben Stokes (99) made a mockery of India's 337-run target to canter home in 43.3 overs. In sensational form, Bairstow followed up his 94 in the first ODI to hit his 11th century and he has only Joe Root (16), skipper Eoin Morgan (13) and Marcus Trescothick (12) ahead of him in the list of most hundreds for England. "Naturally, I would like to have most ODI hundreds for England. Yes I'm happy with those figures, but those figures mean nothing if you don't win. I'm really enjoying my game," Bairstow said after guiding England to their highest successful chase against India. In pursuit of 318 in the first ODI...

Court should issue directives to state govt: Devendra Fadnavis on fire

Opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis on Friday said the court should take suo motu cognizance of the Bhandup Sunrise Hospital fire incident and issue stern directives to the state government and BMC. “After the Bhandara hospital fire incident, the state government had promised to conduct a fire audit in all medical facilities and hospitals. Today’s shocking incident is once again an example of lackadaisical functioning of the government. How many more deaths is it waiting for before swinging into action?” the former CM said. The BJP wants a thorough enquiry into the fire, Fadnavis said, adding that the role of the BMC should be looked into. “Were all permissions given after proper monitoring? Where all guidelines adhered to? If not, who is responsible? The state governmen...

India vs England: It was challenging wicket for bowlers, margin of error was very less, says Prasidh Krishna | Cricket News – Times of India

PUNE: Speedster Prasidh Krishan on Friday said there was very little margin of error for the bowlers on a challenging wicket as India's attack crumbled in the face of an England onslaught in the second ODI here. Chasing a challenging target of 337, Jonny Bairstow (124 off 112) and Ben Stokes (99 off 52) butchered the Indian bowlers, adding 175 runs off 117 balls as England gunned down the total in just 43.3 overs for a six-wicket win. "It was a very good wicket to bat on, no doubt. We scored 330-plus and they chased it down in the 44th over. It says it all," Prasidh, who returned with figures of 2/58, said during the post-match press conference. "It was a flat wicket, challenging wicket for bowlers where the margin of error was very, very less... It was an onslaught, we got hit quite ba...

BMC team traces rescued patients through calls, visits

BMC officials from the S-Ward worked the phones through Friday while trying to trace patients who were admitted into Sunrise Hospital, as the hospital’s entire patient records were stored in a computer and could not be accessed due to the fire. In the absence of these records, the BMC had no other way to find how many people were admitted into, evacuated from, and still trapped inside the hospital. Health department employees dug up details of patients from their war room data to get the phone numbers of all patients admitted in the hospital in the last few days and began calling them to get an update on their location. “We had a team of 10-12 health officials. They began calling on the number of each Covid patient admitted into the hospital recently,” said assistant commi...

India vs England, 2nd ODI: England totally blew us away, says Virat Kohli | Cricket News – Times of India

PUNE: India skipper Virat Kohli had no qualms in admitting that his team was blown away by some "amazing batting" from Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes as England chased down 337 with consummate ease to level the three-match ODI series. Put in to bat, India posted 336 for six but Bairstow and Stokes butchered the Indian bowlers, adding 175 runs off 117 balls, as England gunned down the target in just 43.3 overs. "I think we set quite a decent total on the board. It was going to be challenging if we stayed in the game for long periods. I think we started off really well with the new ball but still England found a way to get a 100 run partnership," Kohli said. "We didn't execute too well but I thought they batted brilliantly tonight. It was some of the most amazing batting you'll see when ch...

For the first time since 2000, no Indian army shooter at Olympics | More sports News – Times of India

PUNE: Indian shooting and Indian army have been sort of synonymous when it comes to the Olympics. Not any more. The sport came into prominence in the country after the silver-winning show by army marksman Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore in a double trap in 2004. However, at Tokyo, India will not see any army shooter. No shooter from the Army Marksmanship Unit in Mhow (AMU) came even closer to winning the Tokyo quota, especially when India booked a record 15 berths for the Games. On Friday, the continuity broke when armyman Gurpreet Singh finished 6th in the men’s 25m rapid fire pistol event at the ISSF World Cup in Delhi. The World Cup offers ranking points, and the gold medallist stood a chance to win a Tokyo quota. However, Gurpreet failed to grab the last opportunity to qualify for the Ga...

PNB case: After Nirav Modi, government now seeks brother Nehal’s extradition from US

After its success before a British court in seeking the extradition of fugitive businessman Nirav Modi in the Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case, the Indian government has initiated the process to extradite his brother Nehal Modi, also an accused in the case, from the US.

CBI officials they suspected that he was in the US, which was confirmed after a court in that county charged him with an alleged fraud case there. Following this information, an official said, t...

Tribunal ruling is overturned, SC backs Tata decision to sack Cyrus Mistry

The Supreme Court Friday put its stamp of approval on the decision by Tata Sons Ltd to remove Cyrus Pallonji Mistry as its Executive Chairman and Director in 2016 and also overturned the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) order that quashed the conversion of Tata Sons into a private company from a public company. The judgment brings the curtains down on one of the ugliest publicly-fought boardroom wars in the history of corporate India. Reacting to the apex court decision, Ratan N Tata said, “It is not an issue of winning or losing. After relentless attacks on my integrity and the ethical conduct of the group, the judgement upholding all the appeals of Tata Sons is a validation of the values and ethics that have always been the guiding principles of the group.”...

Injured at NDA in 2012, a push for new wheelchair highlights Defence dilemma

In 2012, Shubham Gupta’s dream of becoming an Army officer came to an abrupt end. He suffered serious injuries at the National Defence Academy (NDA) that April, and was given a motorised wheelchair upon discharge from the Military Hospital in Kirkee, near Pune, two years later. But seven months ago, with the wheelchair’s life running out, the hospital informed the 29-year-old Bathinda resident in a letter that they cannot issue a new one because he does not fall under the category of ex-serviceman and is not a member of Ex-Servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS). On March 19, that letter was posted on Twitter by Ankur Chaturvedi, another ex-cadet who was medically boarded out of NDA. He highlighted the plight of Gupta, a quadriplegic who was left with 100 per cent disa...

Invoking the history of Bangladesh, the brutal repression by the Pakistani Army and India’s role in its liberation 50 years ago, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Friday unveiled his roadmap for a shared future that he said was “just waiting for countless…moments full of goodwill, and of mutual trust”. In what is seen here as his assurance to resolve differences, the Prime Minister said that both sides are very much aware of the “sensitivity” of the task ahead and the need to make “meaningful efforts” towards resolution. “We have demonstrated that with mutual trust and cooperation, solutions can be found for all issues,” he said. Echoing and reciprocating this was Bangladesh PM Sheikh Hasina. India, being the largest country in the region, she said, needs to play a pioneering r...
