T20 World Cup: Pakistan Register 3-Wicket Consolation Win Over Ireland

Former champions Pakistan restored a semblance of pride with a toiling three-wicket win over Ireland in their inconsequential final game of the T20 World Cup on Sunday. The 2009 champions, who were eliminated following their loss to India and the USA in the earlier group matches, restricted Ireland to 106 for 9 after opting to bowl with Shaheen Shah Afridi (3/22) leading the show. Despite chasing a not-so-daunting target, Pakistan's fragile batting was once again exposed as they slumped to 62 for six in 11 overs, raising the vision of another collapse. But skipper Babar Azam (32 not out) and Abbas Afridi (17) shared a 33-run stand to take them home at 111 for 7 in 18.5 overs. Shaheen Afridi hit the winning runs with two mighty sixes in his 5-ball 13 not out. Pacers Barry McCarthy (3/15), C...

Ukraine Summit Sees Hard Road To Peace As Way Forward Uncertain

Western powers and their allies at a summit in Switzerland denounced Russia's invasion of Ukraine on Sunday, but they failed to persuade major non-aligned states to join their final statement, and no country came forward to host a sequel. Over 90 countries attended the two-day talks at a Swiss Alpine resort at the behest of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, billed as a "peace summit" even though Moscow was not invited.

As Pakistan quickly went about decimating Ireland with their pacers meaning business, it felt more like sombre violin music playing in the background even as the Titanic sank. Like the giant ship that plummeted into the Atlantic, Pakistan have hit such depths at this T20 World Cup that things could only go up.But midway through their chase of 107 on Sunday, at 62/6, new lows were in sight before captain Babar Azam, who kept getting castigated for his slow approach, played a characteristic knock, dropping anchor to oversee a stormy period and take the team home. The three-wicket win at Lauderhill, Florida, in this inconsequential fixture, said everything about Pakistan in the shortest format. They arrived at the World Cup counting on their core players’ experience of playing in the Carib...

T20 World Cup 2024 | India takes flight to the Caribbean after a stellar show in the Land of Opportunity

Rallying his troops: Rohit knows that India’s real test lies ahead. | Photo Credit: DEEPAK KR India did exceptionally well to successfully navigate a tricky Group-A campaign in the United States of America.The opener against Ireland went along expected lines. The big one against Pakistan saw India use clever tact — promoting Axar Patel up the order, bringing Jasprit Bumrah back into the attack when Pakistan started to get comfortable — to negate the disadvantage of batting first on a dicey New York pitch. Rohit Sharma’s men had to dig their heels in to overcome a gritty USA. A wash out in the last match here, however, left the side unhappy. The Central Broward Park & Broward County Stadium here should have witnessed at least a shortened game between India and Canada on Saturday. Th...

Uttarakhand Officials Bat For “Hill Endorsement” Licences Amid Accidents

A day after 15 tourists died in a road accident in Uttarakhand's Rudraprayag, officials said there is a need for greater focus on the "hill endorsement" in drivers' licences accompanied by a physical test. Joint Transport Commissioner Sanat Singh said this check was required for all tourist vehicles, including those that are a part of the Char Dham Yatra and the Hemkund Sahib Yatra, to reduce road accidents in the hilly regions. Many tourist vehicles come to Uttarakhand, but due to the greater volume of cars of Char Dham Yatra, checking of other vehicles is ignored, Mr Singh said. "Now we will need to focus on tourism apart from Chardham Yatra. We will now focus on hill endorsement of driving license," the official said. 'Hill endorsement' of a driver's license is necessary for driving on ...
