IPL 2019: RCB stun SRH to end unsuccessful campaign with a win

RCB were already eliminated from the playoff race but SRH will now have to depend on other results to learn their fate.Kings XI Punjab will host Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders will take on Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede on Sunday in the final 2 league matches of the season. If KKR win, they will be through to the playoffs with 14 points. SRH, who made it to the final in 2018, have 12 points from 14 matches.Chasing 176 to sign off another disappointing IPL campaign with a win, Royal Challengers Bangalore were jolted early. Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed Parthiv Patel and AB de Villiers while Khaleel Ahmed dismissed Virat Kohli to leave RCB in a huge spot of bother.Sunrisers Hyderabad have one of the best bowling attacks in the IPL. With Kohli and de Villiers gone, the onus was on Shimron Hetmyer who played only 5 matches this season. His partner at the other end, Gurkeerat Singh Mann had played just 2 matches in the 2019 IPL before Friday.But Shimron Hetmyer and Mann did not let lack of match time get in the way of a fabulous partnership. The two were undaunted by the early loss of wickets and kept RCB on course with some sensational strokeplay. Hetmyer was the more aggressive of the duo but Mann showed great resilience and patience against a top-quality bowling attack.advertisementRoyal Challengers Bangalore were reduced to 20 for 3 off 2.5 overs and Sunrisers Hyderabad had every reason to feel they had the game under control.

But the smile soon disappeared after Wriddhiman Saha and Martin Guptill got off to a rapid start.However, Navdeep Saini removed Saha in the 5th over of the SRH innings while Washington Sundar dismissed Martin Guptill to help RCB get some kind of control after a frenetic start by the visitors.Royal Challengers Bangalore were sloppy on the field to start with but they soon bounced back with regular wickets. Manish Pandey, SRH’s No.3 in recent matches, was in dangerous form. However, Washington saw him off 3 balls after packing off Guptill and Virat Kohli was a much happier captain.And when Vijay Shankar threatened to take the game away from RCB, Sundar struck again to send him off as SRH slipped to 106 for 4 in the 14th over.Yusuf Pathan, Mohammad Nabi and Rashid Khan fell cheaply and SRH were reduced to 139 for 7 off 17.3 overs. It was left to Kane Williamson, the Orange Cap winner in 2018, to bail his team out of choppy waters and he did exactly that.Kane Williamson played only 8 matches in the league stage because he was recovering from an injury he sustained before the IPL. He was not in great touch but on Saturday when his team needed him to stand up, Williamson played a classic. After hitting his first fifty of the season, Williamson targeted Umesh Yadav, who conceded 28 runs off the final over.Also Read | Another no-ball controversy and Virat Kohli is frustratedlast_img read more

BJP Cong get into poll mode Cong wants top leaders to contest

first_imgShimla: In the state, where there power equations swings between two national parties – BJP and the Congress, the battle for upcoming Lok Sabha polls is getting quite interesting this time.The BJP, which had won all the four seats in 2014 , wants to retain all sitting MPs, including party veteran Shanta Kumar, 84, for the contest but the Congress is looking at new choices to field its top seniors. At a meeting of the Congress’s election committee, held on Wednesday at Chandigarh, the party has shortlisted names for all the four Parliamentary constituencies even proposing to former Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh either to contest himself from Mandi Lok Sabha constituency or make sure that his son Vikramaditya Singh, a sitting MLA elected first-time from Shimla (rural) contests the seat. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!The BJP’s core committee in its two days meeting has also shortlisted the names for Shimla, Kangra, Mandi and Hamirpur Parliamentary constituencies. Initially, there was much suspense on party senior Shanta Kumar, who had won Kangra Parliamentary seat in 2014 but it looks Shanta Kumar is well settled to re-enter the poll fray. Admits Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur “as far as the decision on tickets is concerned, there is already consensus in the party not to change candidates. On Shanta Kumar’s candidature, the party’s national leadership will take a final call. But, we are clear on retaining the candidates.” Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedIn Hamirpur Parliamentary constituency, where three-time sitting MP Anurag Thakur, who was also BJP’s Chief whip, will be party’s candidate while two other incumbent MPs — Ram Swaroop Sharma (Mandi) and Virender Kashyap (Shimla) will be back in the contest. Beside Mandi, Parliamentary seats of Hamirpur, Shimla and Kangra have become quite high stake constituencies for the Congress, which the party has not won for several years. The name of Congress legislature Party (CLP) leader Mukesh Agnihotri was being prominently mentioned as ‘winning” candidate or one who can really give Anurag Thakur a tough fight. Given a chance Agnihotri – a Virbhadra Singh loyalist,w ill not risk his political career. Kangra Parliamentary seat is also a hot spot for the Congress. Former Minister G S Bali is Congress heavyweight in the area also keen to contest the Lok Sabha. Another former minister Sudhir Sharma could be considered for the contest. In Shimla, former MP Col (Rtd) Dhani Ram Shandil is also party’s choice to take on incumbent MP Virender Kashayp. But, being a sitting MLA, he may not also look forward to contesting. Vinod Sultanpuri son of former MP Late K D Sultanpuri is another contender for the ticket. In totality, the Congress is undoubtedly looking forward to put-up a good show in the poll. The party has a bigger struggle to make some of the leaders agree to contest the poll rather than building-up a campaign against the BJP.last_img read more

Facebook still hosting NZ shooting footage Report

first_imgSan Francisco: Despite Facebook’s claim that the livestreaming video of the March 15 Christchurch shooting that killed 50 people was removed from its platforms, sections of the raw footage are still available for users to watch, the media reported. According to a report in Motherboard on Friday, certain videos on Facebook and Instagram show sections of the raw attack footage. “The world’s biggest and most well-resourced social media network is still hosting copies of the violent attack video on its own platform as well as Instagram,” the report claimed. Some of the videos are slices of the original 17-minute clip — trimmed down to one minute or so — and are open to be viewed by anyone. In one instance, instead of removing the video, which shows the terrorist shooting and murdering innocent civilians from a first-person perspective, Facebook has simply marked the clip as potentially containing “violent or graphic content”. One of the clips shows the terrorist walking up to the first mosque he targeted, and opening fire. The video does not show the full attack, and stops at the 01:15 mark. A Facebook spokesperson, however, said “the video did violate our policies and has been removed”. The Facebook livestreaming of the New Zealand terror attack sparked global outrage. The video was viewed over 4,000 times before it was removed. The video was later shared in millions on other social media platforms, including Twitter and YouTube. Facing flak, the social media giant is now exploring restrictions on who can use its “Facebook Live” feature. Earlier this month, New Zealand’s privacy commissioner John Edwards labelled Facebook as “morally bankrupt pathological liars” after the social media platform’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg tried to play down the Facebook livestreaming of Christchurch shooting.last_img read more
