first_imgSEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief UPLB exempted from SEA Games class suspension The Yemenis proved dangerous on the counter-attack as they exploited the Azkals’ inability to recover defensively off set pieces.Defender Mudir Al Radaei gave Yemen a shock lead in the 27th minute with a diving header off a corner kick, stunning the crowd of close to 3,000 at Panaad.Phil leveled three minutes later with a trademark free kick, scoring from 30 yards out—a goal similar to his strike against Tajikistan last June and Indonesia last December in the Suzuki Cup.But Yemen always proved dangerous on the break and the visitors pulled ahead again in the 55th minute with a well worked counter-attack completed by Abdul Al-Matari.James forged another equalizer with a header off a Manny Ott delivery in the 71st minute.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES MOST READ It was a bittersweet result for the brothers in particular as they took delight in the goals they scored, yet felt a tinge of disappointment over their inability to pick up maximum points against a team that struggled to even reach this bustling city.“We’re a bit disappointed not to get three points, but the team fought hard until the end,” said Phil Younghusband who jacked up his tally to 47 international goals. “We can still take a lot of positives from this game.

IPL 2011: Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings- RCB win by 8 wkts

first_imgChris Gayle scored a quick-fire 75 not out helping Bangalore to an impressive eight-wicket win over Chennai during their last league game of the IPL at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Sunday. Score | PhotosThe victory helped them finish atop the IPL-4 points table with 19 points and earn a place in the ‘Qualifier 1’ on Tuesday.This has given them the luxury of having a second go at the finals if they lose on Tuesday as the loser of the ‘Qualifier 1’ will get to play the in the ‘Qualifier 2’ on Friday as well.Chasing 129, Bangalore reached the total with two overs to spare thanks to Chris Gayle’s batting blitzkrieg.Gayle carried his bat through scoring an unbeaten 75 of 50 balls hitting four fours and six sixes on the way.Earlier, Bangalore put in AB de Villiers alongside regular opener Chris Gayle, but the move didn’t work as Chennai offie R Ashwin got rid of De Villiers on the third ball of the innings. He was stumped by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni when Bangalore hadn’t even opened their account.Post that fall Gayle, who has been in purple patch this season, and Virat Kohli batted on to frustrate the opposition bowlers. The two put on a quick 80 runs for the second wicket before Kohli departed in the 10th over.Kohli flicked Albie Morkel straight to Ashwin at short fine leg and walked back after scoring 31. But that proved to be the last wicket to fall from the Bangalore camp as soon Chris Gayle with Saurabh Tiwary (13 n.o.) scored the home run for Bangalore on the last ball of the 18th over.advertisementChennai inningsCaptain Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored a gritty 70 not out helping Chennai to 128/8 against Bangalore.Dhoni came into bat when Chennai were tottering on 22/4 and salvaged the innings with Wriddhiman Saha helping him in his endeavour.Earlier, Bangalore captain Daniel Vettori won the toss and elected to field in the 69th and penultimate league game on IPL-4.Chennai lost their opener Michael Hussey early in the innings. Bangalore paceman Zaheer Khan got the better of Hussey on the first ball of the third over. He pitched the ball on the off at good length and an inside edge off the batsman crashed into his stumps. Chennai lost their opener when the team total was seven.The other opener Murali Vijay too could not stay for long and he fell to another left-arm seamer, S Aravind, in the fourth over when the team total was 16.But that wasn’t the end as Bangalore were keen on getting a wicket per over and the next over saw left-hand batsman Suresh Raina fall to a Zaheer Khan delivery and Chennai were reduced to 17/3 in 4.1 overs.Captain Daniel Vettori continued with the trend that had started in the third over. He got the better of Subramaniam Badrinath on the fourth ball of the sixth over to reduce Chennai to 22/4.Fortunately, for Chennai the ‘wicket per over’ trend came to an end in the seventh over of S Aravind that finished without a wicket falling in it.But the early assault had left Chennai, table toppers in the IPL-4, tottering on 36/4 in 10 overs.Then Wriddhiman Saha and captain MS Dhoni batted on for sometime trying to negate the effects of the early assault by Bangalore bowlers. The two put on 42 runs for the fifth wicket before Saha fell in the 14th over off Virat Kohli when batting on 22.But skipper Dhoni remained at the crease and tried to up the tempo.Chennai’s West Indian recruit Dwayne Bravo too departed cheaply and the onus of taking Chennai to a decent total now rested on Dhoni’s shoulders, who got busy playing the captain’s knock even as wickets kept falling at the other end.Dhoni went on to complete his half-century in the 19th over. He put on an unbeaten 70 off 40 balls punctuating his innings with three fours and six over the fence shots as Chennai scored 128/8 in their stipulated 20 overs.last_img read more

J Dey murder case: Mumbai Police question oil mafia kingpin

first_imgThe police, probing the killing of senior crime reporter J Dey, on Thursday questioned an alleged oil mafia kingpin after interrogating and letting off three suspects apparently finding no evidence against them. Police questioned alleged oil kingpin Mohammed Ali in connection with the murder case at a hospital where he was taken from Arthur Road jail. Ali was interrogated by police after the MCOCA court’s permission. Ali and his four aides had been arrested from here while two sharp-shooters from Mughalsarai railway station in Uttar Pradesh in connection with the murder of Sayyed Chand Madar (56), owner of a private firm in south Mumbai, in September last year. Ali and Madar were rivals as both were allegedly involved in smuggling diesel from the high seas. Earlier, the police let off three persons, believed to be associated with Chhota Shakeel, a key aide of underworld don Dawood Ibrahim, who were detained on Wednesday in connection with the killing of the scribe. “The suspects, whom we questioned, appeared to have played no role in the crime, as of now,” Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy said. Three suspects Anwar, Mateen Iqbal Hatela and Shaikh were picked up for questioning on Wednesday to ascertain their possible role in Dey’s killing. However, they were let off late on Wednesday night after no evidence was found against them, police said.  The police said that during interrogation Mateen had said that Dey might have been killed as he could be working on a story which would have caused trouble to some people. They also told us several other things but that is not matching with the fact after verification. “We questioned Anwar and Mateen to ascertain as to why they were telling us those stories and whether they were trying to mislead us in the probe and if so, why they were doing this,” a police officer said adding that they did not appear to have played any role in the murder and were allowed to go. 56-year-old Jyotirmoy Dey, Editor (Special Investigation), with Mid-Day, who extensively covered the underworld and crime for over two decades, was shot dead by four assailants last Saturday. Meanwhile, police have found three more witnesses in the case and are trying to figure out the sequence of events that led to the killing.advertisement- With PTI inputs For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Ind vs Eng: Centurion Dravid saves the day for India

first_imgSachin Tendulkar may have disappointed by not scoring his 100th ton, but Rahul Dravid did not. Score | PhotosThe Wall stood tall scoring his 33rd Test, also his first at Lord’s, to help India put on 286 in reply to England’s first innings total of 474/8 declared, during the third day of the first Test at Lord’s in London on Saturday.In the process Dravid saved India from following on. But England still enjoyed the edge as their openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook came down to bat and put on five runs. At stumps on Day 3 England were leading by 193 runs with 10 wickets in hand.However, all eyes were on Sachin Tendulkar, who came out into the hallowed greens of Lord’s, looked skywards and then gradually and steadily his numbers on the scoreboard started increasing, but Stuart Broad had other plans. He dismissed the Master Blaster on 34 putting an end to his hopes of a 100th ton.This was after Stuart Broad scalped openers Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund with his swingers in the first session.An overnight score of 17/0 was as good as a speck of dust in front of Kevin Pietersen’s double ton propelled 474. And India openers Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund had their task cut out – to stay in the middle for as long as possible.But that didn’t happen as Gambhir ended up losing his wicket cheaply. A swinging ball from Stuart Board crashed into his off stump and the southpaw was walking back on 15 when the team total was 63.advertisementMukund, on the other hand, seemed to be playing well against the England bolwers. He was effectively countering James Anderson and Stuart Broad’s swing and Chris Tremlett’s rising balls. Keeping the bat as straight as possible is key against such bowlers and that’s what he was doing.Later Mukund was joined by another batsman, who enjoys keeping the bat straight, it was Rahul Dravid. But their partnership too didn’t last long as once again it was Broad who broke their stand.And the delivery too was a similar to the one that took away Gambhir’s wicket. The ball kept low and came in swinging to crash into Mukund’s wicket when he was just one run away from his half-century. India lost their second wicket on 77.Then the moment arrived that that every cricket aficionado was waiting for. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar stepped in and took guard, even as the world waited for him to complete his 100th international century.Tendulkar was batting 10 and Dravid on 15 and India score was 102/2 when lunch was called in.In the second session Tendulkar could be seen batting seamlessly even the England pacers were trying options for the Master Blaster. But his innings came to an abrupt end when he edged Stuart Broad towards the second slip where Graeme Swann made no mistake and Sachin Tendulkar was walked back on 34 and India were down to 158/3.Broad, who had taken India’s top three batsmen, could have scalped VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid in his next over, but skipper Andrew Strauss and later Graeme Swann dropped sitters in the slips cordon.Soon Dravid went on to score a half-century. But no sooner had he reached there that his partner Laxman hooled out to Jonathan Trott in the deep off Chris Tremlett’s ball and India were down to 182/4.New man Suresh Raina, walked back as soon as he came in with Graeme Swann trapping him leg-before on a duck and India were down to 183/5.At tea, India were 193/5 with Rahul Dravid and skipper MS Dhoni in the middle.Dravid and Dhoni put on 57 runs for the sixth wicket before Tremlett stuck again to send the India skipper back and then a ball later he got rid of Turbanator Harbhajn Singh to reduce the visitors to 241/7.Dravid scored a ton as India were bowled out for 286.last_img read more
