  • Windies batting fails in loss to India

    first_imgKOLKATA, India, CMC:West Indies’ batting failed miserably as they slumped to a 45-run defeat to hosts India in their opening official warm-up match of the Twenty20 World Cup at Eden Gardens here yesterday.Chasing a challenging 186 for victory, only opener Chris Gayle was good enough to reach the 20s as the Caribbean side were bundled out for 140 in the final over.The left-handed Gayle got exactly 20 from 11 balls, and fellow Jamaican AndrÈ Russell was the next best scorer with 19 from 13 deliveries.West Indies’ run chase was ruined by left-arm spinners Pawan Negi (2-15) and Ravindra Jadeja (2-26), along with seamers Hardik Pandya (2-25) and Mohammed Shami (2-30), all of whom took two wickets each.India had earlier tallied 185 for six from their 20 overs, with opener Rohit Sharma narrowly missing out on three figures with an unbeaten 98.Left-hander Yuvraj Singh chipped in with 31, while opener Shikhar Dhawan got 21.Fast bowler Jerome Taylor (2-26) and left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn (2-30) were the best bowlers on show for West Indies.Rohit put on 32 off 29 balls for the first wicket with Dhawan and posted a further 24 for the second wicket with Ajinkya Rahane, who made seven.However, Benn bowled the left-handed Dhawan in the fifth over and had Rahane stumped in the ninth, to leave India on 56 for two.Rohit then dominated the innings in an 89-run, third-wicket stand with Yuvraj, facing 57 deliveries and counting nine fours and seven sixes.In reply, Gayle and Johnson Charles (18) gave West Indies a robust start, gathering 26 from the first two overs. They had put on 36 off just 21 deliveries when Gayle was bowled by Jasprit Bumrah after striking three fours and a six.Charles, who counted two fours off 13 balls, followed in the next over to a catch at the wicket off Mohammed Shami and Denesh Ramdin, promoted to number four, perished for six at 59 for three at the end of the eighth over.Marlon Samuels, who made 17, and Dwayne Bravo, 13, then carried West Indies to 72 without further loss and seemed to be guiding the side out of trouble.But Samuels was bowled by Jadeja at the start of the 12th over, and with just six runs added in the next over, Bravo also followed as West Indies lost their last seven wickets in quick time for 68 runs.last_img read more

Following a visit to New Orleans in November 2005, U2’s The Edge announced the unveiling of Music Rising, a campaign to raise funds to replace the lost instruments and accessories of the musicians affected by the hurricanes that devastated the Gulf Coast region.

Lead partner Gibson Guitars spearheaded the initial effort by collaborating on the design, manufacture and sale of an exclusive Gibson guitar with all proceeds going directly to the Music Rising program. The instrument captures the essence of the Gulf Coast’s musical tradition. All proceeds benefited Music Rising.

The Gibson Music Rising guitar features hand-painted designs using the colors of Mardi Gras. Each guitar is individually painted and handmade so no two are alike. All of the usual plastic parts (back plate, pick guard, toggle cover, truss rod cover) have been replaced by woods from the States affected by the hurricanes and the Music Rising logo, exclusive to this guitar, is etched into the pick guard.To find out more about the auction and make a bid, click here.

  • EC completely biased against Oppn Rahul

    first_imgNew Delhi: In a scathing criticism of the Election Commission (EC), Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said when it comes to matters related to the opposition, the poll watchdog is “completely biased”.His remarks come in the wake of clean chits given by the EC to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Amit Shah on various complaints of Model Code of Conduct violations. Asked about questions being raised over the EC’s impartiality, Gandhi, at a press conference here, said, “When it comes to issues of the BJP, the EC is absolutely on the straight line, when it comes to the opposition’s issues, it is completely biased.” Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghThe working style of Modi, the ruling BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is to put pressure on institutions, he alleged. “This is evident everywhere — SC, EC, Planning Commission, RBI. That is their approach. We do not expect that the EC will not be affected by that pressure,” Gandhi said. However, he asserted that the EC has to commit to its responsibility and carry it out. “All this institutional capture that is taking place and all the negative effects of it will have consequences in the future. We are not going to allow Indian institutions to be disturbed, controlled, crushed and anybody who colludes, anybody who falls to this pressure, is committing a crime,” the Congress chief said. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThe EC concluded on Friday that Modi did not violate the model code or its advisory on the armed forces in his campaign speech in Varanasi. The poll panel also found nothing wrong in the prime minister’s comments made in Maharashtra’s Nanded, where he reportedly dubbed the Congress as a “sinking Titanic”. With this, the EC has decided on five complaints against Modi and gave him a clean chit in all the matters. The poll watchdog has also given a clean chit to Shah over his speeches at Maharashtra’s Nagpur and West Bengal’s Nadia. Citing his speech at Shahdol, Madhya Pradesh on April 23, the commission had, on May 1, issued a show-cause notice to Gandhi highlighting a provision of the Model Code of Conduct that barred “unverified” allegations against political opponents. Earlier, the EC had held that Gandhi had not violated the Model Code of Conduct during another campaign speech in Madhya Pradesh.last_img read more
