Warm-up Game: Umesh leads good bowling display as India bowl out County XI for 220 despite Hameed ton | Cricket News – Times of India

DURHAM: Young opener Haseeb Hameed celebrated his Test recall with a gritty hundred even as Umesh Yadav bowled a few incisive spells and was largely responsible in India bowling County Select XI out for 220 on the second day of the warm-up first-class game. Coming back into the England squad after nearly five years, right-handed opener Hameed lived up to his reputation of being called "Baby Boycs" for his dogged defensive game like former great Geoffrey Boycott with knock of 112 off 246 balls. His innings had 13 boundaries. For India, Umesh was the stand-out bowler as he bowled in short spells and worked up a fair bit of pace with figures of 3/22 in 15 overs. Mohamed Siraj (2/32 in 13 overs) certainly bowled the best delivery of the day, hurrying compatriot Washington Sundar (2), repres...

UNESCO removes Liverpool from world heritage list – Times of India

LIVERPOOL: The UN's cultural agency UNESCO on Wednesday voted narrowly to remove Liverpool's waterfront from its list of world heritage sites, citing concerns about overdevelopment including plans for a new football stadium. At committee talks chaired by China, 13 delegates voted in favour of the proposal and five against- just one more than the two-thirds majority required to delete a site from the global list. "It means that the site of Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City is deleted from the World Heritage List," Tian Xuejun, chairman of UNESCO's World Heritage Committee, declared. It is only the third such removal, after previous decisions affecting Oman and Germany, and followed two days of committee discussions that exposed tensions about how cities around the world can preserve the...

Tokyo Olympics: Deepika banking on experience to earn India’s first medal in archery | Tokyo Olympics News – Times of India

Starting as a kid targeting ripened mangoes with stones and makeshift bamboo arrows at orchards near home to satiate hunger in her childhood, the girl from Ratu Chatti village, around 15km away from Jharkhand’s capital Ranchi, is on the threshold of making history by opening India’s account in Olympic archery. And Deepika Kumari has enough fire in belly for that Olympic glory. But for that to happen, the current women’s world No. 1 will have to control her emotions and heartbeat, handle pressure of playing at the biggest stage much better than her previous two Games outings and negotiate wind at Yumenoshima Park, the venue for Tokyo 2020 archery events. Having resumed competition following Covid-enforced lockdowns in 2020, Deepika has been in the peak of form going into the Olympics but...

While lawmakers wrangle over the details of that proposal on Capitol Hill, Biden was expected to use the town hall, in par...

Tokyo Olympics: Wrong entries in the health status App raise COVID-19 alarm in Indian camp | Tokyo Olympics News – Times of India

TOKYO: Wrong entries in the health status application caused a COVID-19 scare in the Indian camp at the Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday. The deputy chef de mission Prem Verma clarified that no one has shown symptoms for the virus and there was no positive case. IOA president Narinder Batra asked for a clear picture from deputy chef de mission Verma after the Health Report App (OCHA) showed three Indian officials with symptoms but the other app did not have any such detail. Verma replied that "no one showed symptoms and there were inadvertently wrong entries by first time users". "Wrong entries in health record updating. No positive cases. If you make wrong entries in updation of your health record, then it leads to rasing of the alarm by software and the CLO gets a mail to resolve it. "For ...

Can exorbitant escort charges for prisoners on parole be waived, HC asks Maharashtra govt

Noting that paying an amount of “nearly Rs 1 lakh per day” was not possible for 95% of the prison population, the Bombay High Court has asked the Maharashtra government to inform it of any provision that permitted exemption of escort charges in the event parole was granted to convicts. A division bench of Justice S S Shinde and Justice N J Jamadar was on Tuesday hearing a plea by two convicts in 2006 Mumbai serial train blasts case — Mohammed Ali Alam Shaikh and Muzammil Attaur Rehman Shaikh — who challenged the 2018 amendment to the prison rules, which makes it mandatory for convicts to pay “exorbitant” police escort charges for release on parole following a blood relative’s death. Mohammed, who was sentenced to life imprisonment and is lodged in Nagpur Central Prison, had...

Why no oxygen deaths on record? Delhi blames Centre, experts point to absence of records, gaps in protocol

THAT a severe shortage of oxygen exacerbated the Covid crisis in the second wave and contributed to mortality is beyond doubt. But lack of a definition of an “oxygen-shortage death,” no classification of Covid casualties as such as per established protocol and hospitals wary of linking death with oxygen supply — given the many variables in mortality — are behind the fact that zero deaths were officially attributed to the lack of oxygen. Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia Wednesday sought to lay the blame squarely on the Centre, saying that the Delhi government has no records of such deaths because the Centre did not allow it to form a committee to look into claims by patients’ families and doctors. His response came a day after the Union Minister of State for Heal...
