Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Roma could give Mert Cetin his first start as they host Napoli at the Stadio Olimpico, while doubts remain on the visiting front pair. It kicks off at 14.00 GMT, click here for a match preview. There is only one point separating the two sides going into the weekend, with Napoli drawing 2-2 in the controversial game against Atalanta and Roma putting four past Udinese. Federico Fazio is suspended due to his red card in Udine, he joins the lengthy list of absentees from the squad, which include the injured Lorenzo Pellegrini, Bryan Cristante, Amadou Diawara, Nikola Kalinic, Henrik Mkhitaryan and Davide Zappacosta. It means Mert Cetin could be in with a chance of making his full debut for the Giallorossi at the centre of defence. Gianluca Mancini will continue to deputise in central midfield. Edin Dzeko will lead the line, with Justin Kluivert, Javier Pastore and Nicolo Zaniolo expected to be playing just behind the Bosnian. Napoli meanwhile will be without coach Carlo Ancelotti, who was sent off in the draw against La Dea on Wednesday.  Right-back Kevin Malcuit is out for six months following knee surgery, midfielder Allan is also out for four weeks with a sprained knee. The good news is that former defender Kostas Manolas has returned to face his former club, whilst Mario Rui is also expected to return. Elseid Hysaj is struggling with a fratured sternum. Piotr Zielinski is expected to replace Allan in midfield, with Polish striker Arkadiusz Milik and Dries Mertens set to play up front, with Lorenzo Insigne and Jose Callejon on the wings. Mertens has a great record against Roma, scoring five goals from his last five games. However, there are mixed reports on who will lead the line this afternoon, as Hirving Lozano is also in with a shout. Roma: Pau Lopez; Spinazzola, Cetin, Smalling, Kolarov; Veretout, Mancini; Kluivert, Pastore, Zaniolo; Dzeko Napoli: Meret; Di Lorenzo, Manolas, Koulibaly, Mario Rui; Callejon, Zielinski, Fabian Ruiz, Insigne; Milik, Mertens Ref: Rocchilast_img read more

England tour is on: Pak team manager Saeed

first_imgTainted trio: Everyday new revelations upset the world cricket.Pakistan team manager Yawar Saeed on Sunday said there was no threat to their remaining England tour despite more revelations on match-fixing by British tabloid News of the World.Saeed refused to react on Yasir Hameed’s interview to the tabloid in which he claimed to have said that almost all the Pakistan matches were fixed.Pakistan, who lost the Test series 1-3, are to play Twenty20 and One-day series in their remaining tour.”As far as I know the series is on and we have just been told to focus on the matches,” he said in a brief conversation.The International Cricket Council has provisionally suspended Test captain Salman Butt and pace bowlers Mohammed Asif and Muhammad Aamir for their alleged involvement in spot- fixing and betting during the Lord’s Test against England.Meanwhile, former captain Imran Khan appealed for calm saying until the allegations were proven, the media and others should refrain from creating panic.But he admitted that the Pakistan Cricket Board had faulted by not being pro-active enough in the issue.”I think the PCB should have acted first and suspended the players and made them sit out until these allegations were cleared. If I was in the PCB I would make every effort to carry out a full scale investigations into these allegations and try to prove their innocence,” he said.last_img read more

Children of the soil try to save the earth

first_imgTwo decades ago, Rishi Miranhshah – a student from Chandigarh – read The One Straw Revolution, an internationally acclaimed book by Japanese author Masanobu Fukuoka. The literary masterpiece on the alternative food movement influenced him so much that he gave up an established career in Canada and returned to India six years ago with his wife Radhika Malhotra Miranhshah for exploring the possibilities of enriching the earth.The young couple has now taken the initiative to spread agroecological knowledge in developing sustainable farming through books.Earlier, Rishi – a professional translator – did several odd jobs in India and abroad to sustain himself and his wife. But a deep ambition to spend the rest of his life working with the earth continued to haunt him.After completing his education, he practiced law at the Punjab and Haryana High Court in Chandigarh. But, he did not like the profession and started learning French in the city. He met Radhika there and they got married. Soon, he switched over to teaching French at Punjabi University in Patiala which he later quit to shift to Vancouver in Canada. He established himself as a professional translator and worked primarily for the ministry of health, British Columbia.But The One Straw Revolution – which he had read in 1992 – prodded him to understand natural farming. The book has been translated from Japanese into many languages, including English.It highlights the fact that man’s improved techniques appear necessary because they have upset the natural balance. The land has now become a slave to these techniques.advertisementThe couple realised that farmers in Punjab – who have been practicing modern agricultural techniques – needed Fukuoka’s wisdom for posterity.With an aim to offer their own humble contribution to the efforts towards healing and enriching the earth, the couple came back to India about six years ago.For the sake of convenience, Rishi began translating the Japanese master’s book into Punjabi a year ago and Radhika started exploring the means to ensure that the book reached the readers.She was concerned that though a lot of valuable books were published worldwide, only a few reached those who could read only Punjabi. The farmers in Punjab – and elsewhere too – paid a heavy price for their lack of knowledge of English.When they started exploring avenues for publishing the book, there were few takers. Several people in the publishing industry told them the book was not economically viable and they would not be able to publish it.Finally, Radhika took charge and decided to set up her own publishing hub, Worthwords Books, to bring out Kakh Ton Kranti – the translated version of the masterpiece. The book – also “the founding document of the alternative food movement” which rolled out in the native language – has recently started generating interest among the farmers in Punjab.Rishi and Radhika believe that a “civilisational” onslaught has been leading many forms of life towards extinction. People would not be able to understand it till they get this knowledge in their own words and language. The onslaught has been depriving people of natural resources.The couple has also taken a pledge to publish books only on ecology, farming, gardening and spirituality on a not- for- profit basis. These books would be in Indian languages with the primary thrust on translating important works from other languages into Punjabi.Rishi and Radhika have been witnessing that an idea which germinated about two decades ago is finally taking roots. They have Fukuoka holding their hand and leading their way through the vast green expanse – “the fields of joy, of laughter, of birdsong and of truth.”  ===’SAD’ story of brother vs brotherCM Parkash Singh Badal (right) with brother Gurdas.The upcoming assembly elections in Punjab may turn out to be interesting because of the succession struggle in the state’s first family. CM Parkash Singh Badal may well find his brother Gurdas Badal pitted against him.An Akali dissident and former finance minister, Manpreet Singh Badal – who recently launched the People’s Party of Punjab (PPP) – confirmed that his father Gurdas would contest the polls from Lambi – which is represented by Parkash.Manpreet said his father was a strong contender who could defeat his uncle on his home bastion in Muktsar district. He believes that elections are all about strategy. If the fight is with the incumbent CM, the contender should be experienced and strong. No one in the party except Gurdas fits the bill.advertisementThe differences between Parkash and Gurdas were never apparent. But political observers say Manpreet’s calculations could go awry. Since Parkash is an experienced politician, he might contest from Gidderbaha instead.Gidderbaha is the constituency represented by Manpreet himself. Prior to shifting base to Lambi, Parkash had contested five assembly elections from Gidderbaha.However, Manpreet remained unperturbed. He said he had won four assembly elections from Gidderbaha. “If that happens, I will defend my turf once again.”===Low-key celebrations make for a safer Diwali this year People have come to prefer less potent firecrackers.Though Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula – locally referred to as the Tri-City – witnessed more than 200 injuries related to firecrackers on Diwali, the festival passed off without any major incident. The majority of the people who were rushed to different hospitals suffered minor injuries.The doctors say this is a clear indication that it was indeed a safer Diwali this year.Chandigarh’s premier Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER) got 10 persons with firecracker-related injuries on Diwali night. Three of them had suffered perforating eye injuries which required surgical restoration.Other government hospitals received about 140 people with burn injuries. Most of them needed first-aid and were discharged soon.The doctors said a combination of factors – inflation, the idea of a safe Diwali and firecrackers with less potency – had probably led to fewer mishaps this year. ===POST Diwali, people tend to get busy with their routine work but journalists in Punjab have been discussing “gifts”. A section of journos in the state is upset as the government did not send them any gifts. The others are happy as they never desired any gifts because they believe that accepting freebees is unethical. The journalists did not receive any gift from government circles as the state’s first family did not celebrate the festival in the wake of the death of CM Parkash Singh Badal’s wife, Surinder Kaur. The worst was that while the people burst crackers on Diwali night, some journalists called up their peers to confirm and reconfirm that government officials actually did not send any gifts.===It’s ‘Chak De’once again! SRK decides to bat for kabaddi nowShah Rukh KhanPeople in Punjab have been looking forward to their date with Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan who is supposed to perform at the inauguration of the second Kabaddi World Cup at Bathinda. The tournament is scheduled to commence on November 1.Also, the buzz that Katrina Kaif might perform at the closing ceremony has further increased their enthusiasm.The 20-day event would give an impetus to Punjab’s traditional sport at the international level, deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal said. He also holds the sports portfolio.Sukhbir said about 18 countries were likely to participate in the event. He said the matches would be organised at Bathinda, Faridkot, Gurdaspur, Dhudike in Moga, Roopnagar, Sangrur, Chohla Sahib in Tarntaran, Patiala, Kapurthala, Doda in Mukatsar, Amritsar, Ferozepur, Hoshiarpur, Mansa, Jalandhar, Bathinda and Ludhiana. The government would give away prizes worth Rs 5.25 crore.advertisementlast_img read more

Consumer revolution in India: Which are the must-have products? A guide

first_imgIn this age of runaway consumerism, easy EMIs, hyperbranding and the Indian markets flooded with the latest products from all over the world, it is hardly surprising that gizmos and gadgets, brands and bling have become an all-important accessory to your lifestyle and a definitive personal statement.What you wear on,In this age of runaway consumerism, easy EMIs, hyperbranding and the Indian markets flooded with the latest products from all over the world, it is hardly surprising that gizmos and gadgets, brands and bling have become an all-important accessory to your lifestyle and a definitive personal statement.What you wear on your wrist, your feet, the bag dangling from your shoulder, the phone in your hand, the music player you go jogging with, the perfume you spray, the gadgets that surround you, the car you drive, are all extensions of yourself and the way you would like the world to see you.The growing affluence of Indian society has merged seamlessly, and conveniently, with the arrival of a range of prestigious global brands that add to your personal signature, from cars to pens, watches to clothes, mobile phones to gaming devices, sporting accessories and apparel to portable music and the latest laptops. The great Indian bazaar is buzzing with recognised international brands and international products are now launched here almost simultaneously with global markets.Cutting edge products like the Blackberry and iPods and devices like Sony’s Playstation Portable have changed the way we communicate, conduct business on the move or entertain ourselves. Smaller, sleeker and faster, today’s gadgets are changing our lives for the better like never before.Most users wonder how we ever did without them. Despite the amazing products out there, a recent international technology forum suggests that we are just entering an era when software and hardware currently being developed will have even more profound changes on our lives. Today’s tech-savvy teenagers already comprise a generation that is more privileged, connected and aware than any other before it.advertisementIn fact, the new buzzword is Triple Play, which is a convergence of entertainment, telecommunication and the Internet. With high-speed Internet, television (video on demand) and streaming data over a single broadband connection, Triple Play is already being talked about as the killer application of the future. Technology is changing every aspect of our lives, even the way we jog or run. In this feature, we have a running shoe from Adidas which has a microprocessor embedded in the heel capable of making five million calculations per second.Software written specifically for the shoe compares the compression messages received from the sensor-located in the heel-to preset values and automatically gauges if the shoe and cushioning are too soft or too firm and adjusts them accordingly.Technology may be changing our lives but there are other products that are unique for other reasons. These are the ones that have acquired iconic stature, either because of the brand itself or because of the features on offer or the established quality and reputation of the brand. These are the products that define what’s hot or cool in today’s brand-conscious age.Here’s INDIA TODAY’s definitive guide to the hottest products officially available in the Indian market.Sony Playstation PortableSony playstation portableMOVIE ON THE MOVESony reinforces its image as a maker of cutting edge design combined with innovative technology. The Playstation Portable, or PSP, is the best handheld gaming device you can get your hands on, literally. Matchless performance, a wide screen, sexy design, and its own movie format (UMD), plus movie and photo transfer capability, MP3 playback and great sound make it clear why this has been a bestseller since its launch. There’s free content on www.yourpsp.com to download movies, etc. As an all-in-one portable device, the Sony PSP is king. PRICE: Rs 19,990 with value pack Adidas 1Addidas 1A GIANT LEAPRunning shoes are getting intelligent enough to adapt to the wearer. With “1”, Adidas takes a giant leap. A microprocessor under the arch monitors heel impact forces while you walk or run. It analyses the data and sends instructions to the sensor which makes physical changes to the shoe as you run, making sure you have the right cushioning, whatever the runner’s weight, surface and pace. A small replaceable battery, which lasts for 100 hours of running, provides the power. Adidas also anticipates your potential lethargy and so, to save the battery, the processor will switch off automatically after 10 minutes of inactivity. If Adidas 1 does not make you want to hit the road, nothing will. PRICE: Rs 12,500Samsung M Series LCD TelevisionSamsung M series LCD TVSLIM AND SEXYYou have been salivating over the super slim television sets that are crowding electronics shops, happy that LCD and plasma sets are improving their quality and dropping their prices. Maybe the time has come to take the plunge. If you need a television of 40 inches or less, then LCD is the way to go. And among the best models for this technology and size is Samsung’s M series. Our pick: the 40-inch LA40M51B, which is handsome to look at and beautiful to watch. It comes with 6.4 billion colours, PIP and surround-sound as key features. There are cheaper sets but this is our choice for best in class. If you can wait, Samsung is planning to launch LCD TVs with over 12 billion colours, which translates into mind-blowing clarity. PRICE: Rs 1,99,900advertisementNokia N-SeriesNokia N seriesNEXT GENERATIONWhen Nokia launched the N-series phones in 2005 with the theme “The Next Generation”, the reference to Star Trek was more than coincidental. With N-series, Nokia readied itself to seek new frontiers in mobile telephony and boldly go where no mobile-maker had gone before. The first in the series, the N70, was a candy-bar phone with a 2-megapixel camera and video capture. Then came the N90, which is actually a phone-ina-camera. Its killer feature was the 2-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens. It actually took pictures that were worth printing. If the camera is a hot feature, high quality digital music is another demand driver. And if the N90 fulfilled the need for quality pictures, the N91 is expected to do the same for quality music. To be launched shortly, the N91 is actually a top-quality MP3 player that’s also a phone. We could have easily mistaken the N91 audio quality with the iPod’s if the source of music were hidden. It also has a 2-megapixel camera. To store all those quality pictures and loads of music, it comes with 4GB memory-the highest among all phones. The downer: it’s a bit heavy, at 160 grams. Along with music and a camera, if you also want television in your phone, wait for the N92 which is capable of digital video broadcasting. But it may not debut in 2006. PRICE: For the N91, Rs 25,000 plusApple iPod with VideoApple iPodTHE TRUE ICONThe digital media player that revolutionised music and revitalised Apple is a legend. Now comes its fifth generation version-the iPod with video or vPod. The first thing that strikes you is the sleek look. The 30GB version is 30 per cent thinner than the previous 20GB iPod, but its length and width are the same to make room for a 2.5-inch backlit LCD screen. The viewing experience was remarkably comfortable for TV shows, animation movies and podcasts. Brighter shots looked clear and crisp, though there were occasional blocks and banding in dark areas. Watching subtitled content and sports could take getting used to. The battery lasts for about 12 hours of continuous audio and over two hours of video playback. Actually the video is a good addition to an already excellent music player, and explains why Apple has 74 per cent of the global digital music player market. Although the iPod is the emperor in the world of portable music, that hasn’t stopped an army of MP3 players from attacking Apple’s fortress. Samsung’s YPD1 and Creative’s Zen Vision M lead the pack, armed with more features than the vPod. Both good players if you are of that rare breed that does not like the iPod. PRICE: For the vPod, Rs 19,800advertisementMotorola V3iMotorola V3iTHE RAZOR’S EDGEEven if you are one among the 25 million smitten by Razr V3, the phone that’s universally known to have the best combination of form and function, you can be pardoned for thinking that the model is getting a little passe. No worries. Motorola has just launched the V3i to lift our spirits. The enhancements over the classic V3 include a 1.23-megapixel camera, a memory card slot in the same 13.9 mm sleek and sexy body, an iTunes interface for music, a 256MB free memory card and a special spun metal silver finish for the Indian market. Other colours will also be introduced but the one to wait for is the Dolce & Gabbana designed liquid gold and black finish. If the V3i has the looks to die for, the gold and black model has the looks to kill for. PRICE: Rs 12,500Blackberry 8700gBlackberry 8700gMOBILE OFFICEAs much of an executive accessory, sorry necessity, as a suit and tie, the Blackberry’s popularity among India Inc. is on the rise. The new 8700g version will stoke the interest further. Its killer application is wireless access to up to 10 corporate and personal email accounts, all with push functionality- a technology that forwards email to your Blackberry as soon as it lands in your computer inbox. The 8700g has a document viewer that displays formatted Word docs, Excel spreadsheets with charts and Powerpoint slides with graphics, though you can’t edit them. You can also store and view images, but you can’t take them- the phone doesn’t have a camera. The Blackberry’s new Intel processor makes switching between tasks a breeze and the QWERTY keyboard is better than in the 7100 version. Another big improvement is the bright, high-resolution LCD screen that adjusts automatically to changes in the lighting environment. The bottomline: the 8700g is more of a dedicated, intelligent, on-the-go email device, which is also a mobile phone. PRICE: Rs 29,900Bang and Olufsen Beosound 9000Bang and Olufsen BeosoundSTYLE & SOUNDIf you think a music system is just a source of sound to be tucked away on some shelf, consider letting Bang and Olufsen’s revolutionary BeoSound 9000 redefine things for you. Whether you lay it flat or hang it on your wall, the six-CD changer is extreme eye candy. It’s a modern jukebox-cum-movable piece of art. The BeoSound 9000 works so fast-in fact, if allowed to maintain its momentum, it travels faster than a Ferrari from a stop position-and so quietly that the changeover between CDs seems no longer than the interval between tracks. Then there is its innovative mechanism. Instead of transporting the CD to the laser pick-up as other systems do, here the laser finds its way to the disc- providing a new way of using CDs. In addition, the FM/AM radio has enough memory for up to 60 stations, which can be identified by their names.Nippon SatGuideNippon Sat GuideROAD WARRIORImagine having three satellites guiding you on the road for every turn you take, every crossing you pass, sometimes even the lane you should be in. That’s what India’s first vehicle navigation device, Nippon Satguide, offers. Loaded onto a pocket PC, the global positioning system (GPS)-based Satguide provides both voice and visual directions. As your car moves, so does the vehicle indicator on the touch-screen map; the map scrolls as you drive. For over a week that INDIA TODAY tested the device on Delhi roads, the navigator guided us fairly accurately. It allows full function of PC-Word, Excel, music player, email access and PDA features. The limitations: right now only six cities are covered. PRICE: Rs 37,990Plustek OpticSlim M Series ScannerPlustek OpticSlim M Series ScannerSCAN ON THE RUNLaptops for mobile computing. Cellphones for mobile communications. What’s for mobile scanning? If the pen scanner is your answer, then it’s no good. Scanning word-by-word or line-by-line text from lengthy documents can be a pain. Enter Plustek’s OpticSlim M series scanners. Not much bigger than a pen, these scanners scan A4 pages, pictures and cards at a speed of three pages a minute. Just about an inch in thickness and 330gm in weight, making them the smallest among flatbed scanners, they fit nicely in any laptop bag and connect to the computer through a USB cable. The scanning resolution of 600 dpi is good for colour prints, too. A handy tool for executives on the move. PRICE: Rs 4,500Apple Mac MiniCUBE CLASSA desktop smaller than a laptop. With some exaggeration, you could say that for the new Mac Mini Duo Core computer. Upgraded and up to four times faster than the original Mac Mini, the recently introduced model retains the two core strengths-sleek looks and small size. Its main features are a new Intel Duo Core processor, an 80GB hard drive, a DVD reader-writer, built-in wireless and Bluetooth and wireless remote and some really good multimedia software. All this packed in the size of a lunch box. The catch: monitor, keyboard and mouse must be bought separately. It does allow you to make your own digital music and video, plus photo library and calendars, and put up a cool website, blog. PRICE: Rs 46,300MacBook ProMacBook ProLAPTOP RULESApple’s computer launches make waves. Credit Apple’s leading edge in innovation. The MacBook Pro laptop testifies to this. A backlit keypad for typing in the dark, a power cord that attaches to the laptop magnetically and a remote control to operate the machine are some of the product’s wow features. Its slim remote control allows optimal use of the laptop’s bountiful multimedia features-slide shows of pictures, music or movies-from anywhere in the room. Of course, the key strength of the MacBook Pro is the Intel Duo Core processor, which makes it up to five times faster than the Power Book. The Mac Book’s 15-inch screen is twice as bright as the brightest of other laptops. Dazzling to look at, the laptop is loaded with other advanced features like Wi-Fi networking, Bluetooth and DVD-burning. PRICE: Rs 1,17,000Dior CrystalDior CrystalROCK STARThis is a classic, designed for Christian Dior by the legendary John Galliano who says that if the watch were a person, it would be a rock star. He designed it as a mix of masculine edge and soft, seductive woman on the inside. As Galliano says, “It’s got attitude.” The watch showcases 44 coloured diamonds and 21 sapphire crystal inserts. This one comes at a price but it is, after all, meant for those who want to stand out from the crowd. PRICE: Rs 1,15,000  Hugo BossHugo BossWELL SUITEDIf you don’t have a Hugo Boss suit in your closet, you don’t deserve to be, well, the boss.

Mittal, chairman of ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steelmakerGroup Market Cap Rs 1,62,000 crAditya Mittal’s claim to fame is in having led Mittal Steel’s successful bid for steel giant Arcelor in 2006 to create the first 100 million tonne-plus steel company.As chief financial officer, he was also instrumental in cutting the company’s debt to 30 per cent following the mega merger. “It was the biggest IPO (initial public offering) in the steel industry.

IPL auction: No buyers for VVS Laxman

first_imgAll-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was the biggest draw for the franchises with Chennai Super Kings buying him for a whopping Rs 9.72 crore but struggling veteran VVS Laxman found no takers in the players’ auction for the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League. Live blog The 23-year-old, whose base price was $100,000, went to Chennai after the tie-breaker clause was invoked when two teams – CSK and Deccan Chargers – bid the maximum ($2million) for the Saurashtra player.Both the franchises were asked to bid a secret amount in the tie-breaker and it was Chennai which managed to outbid Deccan in the final round.But the cricketer himself will be paid $950,000 as per the contract he had signed with the now-disbanded Kochi Tuskers Kerala last year and even the secret amount that was bid on him by Chennai would go into the BCCI coffers.Laxman, in contrast, expectedly remained unsold after a string of poor performances on the tours of England and Australia.Laxman started his IPL stint as Deccan Chargers captain in 2008 but at 37 right now, age and reputation of being a Test specialist could also have been factors for the franchises’ snub.Former Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene, incidentally the KTK captain last season, was also a big draw going to Delhi Daredevils for $1.4 million (approx Rs 6.8 crore).Jayawardene will, however, get $1.5 million as per his contract last year.Some surprise beneficiaries at the auction were West Indian spinner Sunil Narine, who was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders for $700,000 (Rs 3.40 crore) and Indian paceman Vinay Kumar, taken by Royal Challengers Bangalore for $one million (Rs 4.86 crore). Narine had a modest base price of $50,000.advertisementA total of 146 players went under the hammer with a purse of $16.94 million between the eight teams after Pune Warriors did not turn up following Sahara’s decision to give up on the franchise’s ownership.Each team had a maximum cap of $2 million, which Chennai exhausted by spending on Jadeja.Other big gainers at the auction were New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Brendon McCullum was bought for $900,000 by Kolkata Knight Riders. McCullum’s base price was $400,000.Indian stumper Parthiv Patel went for $650,000 to Deccan Chargers, which was quite high from his base price of $200,000.Among others who went unsold in the auction were England’s James Anderson, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara and Matt Prior, West Indies’ Ramnaresh Sarwan, Adrian Barath and Darren Bravo and South Africa’s Mark Boucher.Sri Lankan spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan, who was with Chennai Super Kings and Kochi in the previous editions, was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for $220,000 (approx. Rs 1.06 crore).South Africa’s veteran opening batsman Herschelle Gibbs, who was released by Deccan Chargers, fetched $50,000 (approx. Rs 24 lakh) from Mumbai Indians, while Australian batsman Brad Hodge was taken by Rajasthan Royals for $475,000 (approx Rs 2.3 crore).Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson went to Mumbai Indians at his base price of $300,000 (approx Rs 1.4 crore). West Indies Andre Russell fetched $450,000 from the Delhi Daredevils, a substantial hike from his base price of $50,000.Sri Lankan wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Chandimal was turned out to be a bargain buy for Rajasthan Royals, who bought him at his base price of $50,000.Jadeja was supposed to be the highlight of the auction on Saturday and so it turned out to be with almost all franchises placing their bids on the all-rounder.Ironically, just two years ago, Jadeja was banned for a year after trying to negotiate a deal with Mumbai Indians while still on contract with Rajasthan Royals.Dubbed the “rockstar” by Australian spin legend and Rajasthan captain-cum-coach Shane Warne, Jadeja was bought by Kochi for $950,000, and he did well by making 283 runs at a strike rate of 124.12, and taking eight wickets at an economy rate of 7.26.Another big gainer in the auction was Karnataka pacer R Vinay Kumar who was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for a whopping $1 million against a base price of $100,000.Pacers RP Singh and S Sreesanth, who were part of India team not so long ago, were bought by Mumbai Indians for $600,000 and by Rajasthan Royals for $400,000 respectively. Their base prices were $200,000 and $400,000.RP Singh was bought by now defunct Kochi Tuskers Kerala for $500,000 in the IPL auction last year while Sreesanth had fetched $900,000.Off-spinner Ramesh Powar was bought by Kings XI Punjab for $160,000 against a base price of $100,000 while Australian Brad Hogg was sold to Rajasthan Royals for $180,000 against a base price of $100,000.Laxman apart, those who went unsold in the auction include India’s VRV Singh, Englishmen Luke Wright, Owais Shah and Graeme Swann, Bangladeshi Tamim Iqbal, Australian pacer Peter Siddle, South Africans Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Justin Kemp and Vernon Philander, Sri Lankan Upul Tharanga, West Indians Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Smith, Fidel Edwards and Ravi Rampaul, New Zealander Tim Southee and big hitting Irishman Kevin O’Brien.advertisementlast_img read more

Hot and happening: Lalu and Nitish make heat wave a political issue

first_imgPolitics in Bihar is getting hotter with Lalu Prasad launching an agitation against the state government after his return from a prolonged stay in Delhi.The Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president fired the first salvo by announcing his resolve to hold meetings across the state in the evenings because of the prevailing heat wave. But Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has launched a counter-attack by chalking out a fresh itinerary to travel to the districts and meet people during daytime, regardless of the soaring mercury.Nitish is leaving for a three-day tour to Bhagalpur on Thursday as part of his ongoing Seva Yatra, his statewide tour to get the people’s feedback on public welfare schemes launched by his government. He will subsequently stay in Kishanganj from June 3-5 and visit Bhojpur between June 7 and 9. At all these places, the chief minister will hold public meetings and meet local people during daytime to listen to their grievances.Bihar has been reeling under an intense heat wave with temperatures hovering around 44 degree Celsius these days. The weather condition had prompted Lalu to avoid daytime rallies in the districts he is scheduled to visit over the next few days to revitalise his party and drum up people’s support against the Nitish government.But his announcement gave his political rivals an opportunity to hit out at him. Deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi said that Lalu had grown old and could not go out to hold meetings under the sun.”Laluji has announced that he will hold meetings only in the evenings,” he said. “On the contrary, the chief minister has been visiting different villages to get the feedback of the people even in 45 degree Celsius temperature.”advertisementLalu, however, dismissed Modi’s criticism. He said that he had decided to hold the meetings in the evening to spare the poor people from the scorching sun. “Nitish travels in the air-conditioned cars but the public remains under the sun all the time,” Lalu said. “He is not bothered about the poor people in the state.”Lalu said that Nitish was being apathetic to the plight of the people, highlighting that there was acute power crisis everywhere in the state, except the VVIP areas of the state capital. “I will have to light up the lanterns in the evenings to hold my meetings,” he added.Lalu said his decision to go out to the districts as part of his party’s agitation against the state government had unnerved the leaders from the ruling coalition. “There is a sense of palpable unease over my return to Patna,” he said. “They are keeping a watch on each and every movement of mine with trepidation.”At the RJD’s national executive committee meeting in Patna earlier this week, Lalu had announced the launch of a statewide agitation against the Nitish government on the issues of crime, corruption and power crisis. He had also called for all the opposition parties to unite against the NDA to prevent split of their votes. But neither have the Congress nor the Left responded favourably to his appeal so far.Nitish has also made light of Lalu’s call for agitation. “I do not want to say anything about him,” he said. “I am afraid he will go back to Delhi, sulking, if I say something. I want him to stay in Patna now.”Lalu had been staying mostly in Delhi since his party’s rout in the 2010 state assembly elections.last_img read more
