Amla, Tahir star in South Africa’s comfortable win

Directed by four iron to Imran Tahir, South Africa brought things in style to ensure Sri Lanka to a shameful defeat of 96 shots during the opening of the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 at the Kennington Oval London on Saturday, June 3, Defender 299, South Africa’s lively bowling effort, well supported by a tight champagne, canceled the start of Sri Lanka by 203 to wrap and squeeze their campaign on a high.

All this does not seem possible in the binding effect of the Sri Lankan game. South Africa had put their hopes on sensation Kagiso Rabada for an early breakthrough, but the boxing player had an early apology for his time. After leaving a goalie on the Upul Tharanga patrol when he was about to score 2 in the second round, Rabada again has the chance to succeed, this time offering Niroshan’s aggressive life Dickwella at 21. Adding an insult to injury, goalkeeper-batter Continued to take his chances and sacked Rabada 15 discount, which included a wide and a non-ball, which was enough for AB de Villiers to eliminate the youngsters from the immediate attack.

The change of bowling, however, brought the possibility that South Africa had lost hope because Morne Morkel, not even secured a spot in the eleven at the start of the tournament, affirmed the faith of management in making him Dickwella simply with Tighten the second ball. The Sri Lankan working class seminar, but the rest had fun in the middle of an abrupt end when they abused a great success trying to find Wayne Parnell to the third man. His sparkling 33 balls with a value of 41, however, took pressure early in Sri Lanka, which sailed at 8.5 times.

Tharanga has nurtured this confidence and beat four Parnell limits two scales. Kusal Mendis, who came from bottom to top, also gained back from the boundaries of this Morkel to regain control. But Chris Morris, who also opened his account on the first flight, discovered that the city of Morris had discovered a glass with two hands to reduce Sri Lanka to 95 for 2. From there everything was downhill. Like South Africa, imploded to leave the advantage.

Directed by Dinesh Chandimal early in the day Villiers returned the favor with a knife to end the stay of 21 balls of Sri Lanka. Two balls later, the wrong person Tahir pushed Chamara Kapugedera who pocketed a golden duck to drop his side to 117 for 4. The loss of three partners at the other end has slowed down Tharanga, who was left to team. And the pressure began to appear soon after. The captain lifted his half-century of 59 deliveries, but has lost David Miller in the three deepest afterwards.

There was a slight ray of hope given that Sri Lanka and Asela Gunaratne did especially in the warming, but Tahir assured that it was not repeated. Kusal Perera led a solitary battle, but it was not enough to revise the target. His 36-shot stand with Seekkuge Prasanna briefly raised hopes, but this effort has reached a low rate of 4.5 care and has only delayed the inevitable. Prasanna was trapped by Morris for his second game wicket, the roulette examined, but without success.

Rabada was back after the Sri Lankan lower order was exposed, but has only managed a porthole in row number 39. Tahir has met the requirements with Nuwan Pradeep’s desk at 42 minutes for a more comfortable victory at the end.

Earlier in the day, if it were not for a record ODI hundred by Amla Hashim and his second porthole stand out worth 145 with Faf du Plessis, South Africa might not be enough to test Sri Lanka’s fragile strikes. Batting, South Africa rides saw a fairly familiar pattern of a century and a late collapse, but Amla 25 was enough to overcome a fairly quiet start and also offset the poor performance by the middle order as they accumulated 299 For 6 your assigned quota.

Thailand Open: B Sai Praneeth Reaches Final; Saina Nehwal Loses In Semis

It was a mixed day for India at the Golden Grand Prix Thailand Open Tournament on Saturday. While the third destination Sai Praneeth B took only 36 minutes to dismantle the Pannawit Thongnuam challenge in the singles semifinals, Saina Nehwal’s second head missed the final stage of the women’s singles career to withdraw from the Bangkok tournament. She lost Thailand Busanan Ongbamrungphan in direct games.
Sai Praneeth seemed in a hurry to reach the final, as he had little time to win 21-11 21-15. While the first match was pocketed by the Indians, Thai came back strong in the second to maintain the difference of a point in the interval.
However, Thongnuam’s challenge was short-lived as Praneeth crashed big hits to take a big lead and before realizing it, he had won the second game and set the final match against Jonatan Christie, fourth seed from Indonesia. Christie beat Malaysia Joo Ven Soong 21-9 21-18 in their semifinal.
Sai Praneeth won the Singapore Open in April, his first Super Series win, beating compatriot Kidambi Srikanth.
It was a disappointing day for Saina because she had won a difficult quarter-final Friday. Ongbamrungphan against the former world number 1 lost 19-21 18-21 in a tie that lasted 53 minutes.
While Saina made unforced errors in the first game at crucial moments, she tried to defend herself in the second. However, the fourth round of Thailand refused to let the Indian enter the game as it has taken advantage of the bronze medal errors of the London Games to win the game in a draw.

India vs Pakistan: Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja justify selection with individual moments of brilliance

Every time we look at a show, it is in our human nature to expect something unexpected amazing and beautiful to happen. We are never satisfied with the quality of the show. We continue to wait for this moment unique shine that element of surprise and the emotion of the unknown that swayed our feet. It is these moments that make the show worth seeing and distinguishes it from other shows. Something similar happened in the clash between India and Pakistan in Birmingham on Sunday. Although the scene was illuminated by magnificent half-centuries in each of India’s four best hitters, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja have become the show with their individual brightness times.

Emotions and feelings have always been very important in terms of meetings in India and Pakistan. Each time the two parties met in a match, they have always witnessed something spectacular. The reason is the political history between the two countries which gives rise to a sense of rivalry between the fans and the players of both nations. What makes the contest more intriguing is the domination of India against Pakistan in the ICC tournaments. Although Pakistan has been looking for their “Mauka” to beat India in World Cups since its inception in 1975, they had something to boast about in the Champions Trophy when they were addressing their rivals 2-1 before Sunday’s game.

However, the Indian team snatched vandalism rights from their neighbors in this tournament as well, tallying their 2-2 record after a mammoth that won the victory over them. All thanks to a brilliant effort hit the first four Indians Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh, all in the direction of brilliant millennia. However, the game would not have been so interesting and fun without the crucial contributions Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja.

In general, one can not speak of anything else when Yuvraj emits a fast fire fifty or dark sleeves will come with something big. Because everything seems to be secondary to the games played by them. However, Pandya undefeated 20 since only six installments – which included three stunning years ultimately Imad Wasim, have eclipsed all of them to become the highlight of India’s rides.

The cameo Pandya was like an unexpected climax of a movie that would put the spectator in the fear of the moment. We think the movie is about to end, but suddenly something unexpected happens at the climax that leaves us spell this magic. Hitting three consecutive six is ​​certainly not a breeze. But this boy has done it again and again on the internal circuit of India. Playing capital later in the tickets is nothing new for this young talent who plays for Mumbai Indians. It had made some moment of the IPL that just concluded. And he took that form with him to England to show the world what he can do on the big stage.

The exploits with his willow do not seem enough for him. So he was ready with his right arm, to speed up the Pakistani middle order. It has been shot with a good pace to the length and fired just enough surface to prevent the movement of the batteries. He was unlikely to have a plate of constant lengths. For his aggression times added to his inconsistency. He often helped expensive spells in the past, since he ended up bowling a lot of short stuff. Pakistani battalions could have planned to attack because of their relative lack of experience in the international arena.

Champions League, Real Madrid vs Juventus: Preview, possible line-ups and team news ahead of Cardiff final

It is difficult to see the career as Real Madrid player Zinedine Zidane as something more than remarkable. Probably the best midfielder of his generation would be better in many XI of all time.

But the final of the Champions League on Saturday against their former club Juventus said that the French not quite in their way.

When Juventus signed Zidane from the French club of Bordeaux in 1996, only they had crowned champions of Europe. The midfielder was the man they hoped to help ensure greater success in the Champions League.

Italian rivals AC Milan had won the European title three times in a row and, at the time Serie A was the best European league, Juventus wanted, perhaps, the need to follow and dominate the continent.

But that never happened – Juve lost two finals in the Zidane era, and his solo success of the Champions League with Real came in 2002.

In 1997, Juve lost 3-1 against Borussia Dortmund in the final, the Frenchman is largely ineffective, marked by the Scottish environment game Paul Lambert.

The following year, Juve was again in the final phase for the third consecutive season, only to lose 1-0 against Real, with the purpose of Predrag Mijatovic who was the first European title of the Spanish club in 32 years.

“Moments like these are difficult and sad, but they are an integral part of any race in football and you have to accept them.I’m happy to win the competition later with Real Madrid.All races that allow the entry of both good and bad Memories, “Zidane said recently.

The pain was quickly facilitated for Zidane, who won the World Cup race in his homeland with France, but his last three years at Juve were destroyed in terms of trophies.

Zidane was part of two title-winning teams in his first two years at the club, but his last three years have led to the dark UEFA Intertoto Cup.

When he recorded his world record of 75 millions real in 2001, the fans of the Juve were saddened, but there was no outrage.

In fact, the club’s transfer fee has helped bring in three players who require a period of domestic domination: goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, French defender Lilian Thuram of Parma and especially Czech midfielder Pavel Nedved Lazio.

Zidane, who lived peacefully in the country during his stay in Italy, is still beloved and respected among the faithful of Juve. But on Saturday, I hope the team of Massimo Allegri can offer the same trophy that the French could not ensure.

Zidane XI faces a headache over whether to go with Isco Calderon or Gareth Bale. Welsh is the ideal choice, since the end is on its ground, but the problem in the calf 27 years is a little worrisome for the manager. Isco fulfilled all the requirements and splendidly interpreted by Real Madrid, in the absence of Bale.

Raphael Varane should pair next to Sergio Ramos in defense as Pepe is excluded because of the broken ribs.

Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE cut diplomatic ties to Qatar; plan to shut land border with Arab country

Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE cut diplomatic ties to Qatar; plan to shut land border with Arab country

Dubai: Four Arab nations severed diplomatic ties in Qatar Monday in their dealings with Iran and support Islamist groups by isolating the small energy-rich country by reducing its land, sea and air communication channels with the outside world.

Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have begun withdrawing their diplomats from Qatar, while regional airlines have quickly announced that they will suspend service to their capital, Doha.

Qatar, which will host the 2022 World Cup and shelter 10,000 US soldiers at a US military base, has criticized the measure as a “violation of its sovereignty.” However, it immediately wreaked havoc on the Qatar Airways long-distance carrier that sent its stock market and raised questions about how a country dependent on food imports would be affected.

Saudi Arabia also said Qatari troops would withdraw from the ongoing war in Yemen. The Japanese government with the support of Yemen, which holds on its capital and large pieces, also cut off relations with Qatar.

All countries have ordered their citizens to Qatar and gave Qatari abroad 14 days to return to their peninsular countries. Countries also said they would expel Qatari diplomats in their territories.

The Qatari Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that “there is no legitimate justification” for the country’s decision, although it promised that its citizens would not be affected by this decision.

“The Qatari government will take all necessary steps to ensure this and thwart attempts to influence and affect the society and economy of Qatar,” he said.

All nations have also said they plan to reduce air and sea traffic. Saudi Arabia said it would close its land border with Qatar, effectively cutting the country from the rest of the Arabian Peninsula.

Qatar Airways, one of the main long distance carriers in the region that regularly navigates through Saudi airspace, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Some of his flights on Monday crossed Iranian airspace.

Etihad, the Abu Dhabi-based company said it would suspend flights to Qatar “until further notice.” Emirates, the Dubai-based airline, announced that it would also suspend flights to Qatar from Tuesday, as low-cost airline FlyDubai.

Before Monday, Qatar seemed indifferent to the growing tensions. On May 27, the Qatari emirate, Hamad bin Tamim Al Thani, called the Iranian president, Hasan Rouhani to congratulate him on his re-election.

The call was a clear and public refutation of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to force Qatar to fall in line against the Shiite nation, which the Sunni kingdom regards as its number one enemy and a threat to regional stability. Qatar shares a huge offshore gas field with the Islamic Republic.

Qatar is also home to the large Al Udeid air base, which houses the headquarters before the US Army Central Command. It was unclear whether the decision would affect military operations. Officials of the Central Command and the Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Saudi Arabia said it made a decision to sever diplomatic ties because of Qatar’s adoption of several terrorist and sectarian groups to destabilize the region, including Muslim Brotherhoods, Al Qaeda, the state group and Islamist groups supported by Iran in defiance of Kingdom Eastern Province. The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has accused Qatar of taking a “confrontational stance” towards Egypt and said that “all attempts to stop supporting terrorist groups have failed.”

The small island nation of Bahrain has blamed the Qatar media, support for armed terrorism and related Iranian funding groups to carry out the sabotage and spread of chaos in Bahrain “by its decision. The United States, based in Bahrain, has not responded to a request for comment on whether the decision would affect its operations.

India vs Pakistan: Virat Kohli and Co's win underlines declining standard of cricket across the border

India vs Pakistan: Virat Kohli and Co’s win underlines declining standard of cricket across the border

A group of school children against assiduous attack force – which is how the confrontation between India and Pakistan was manifested last night. It is not difficult to guess which is which. The victory margin of India in 124 shots to use Edgbaston free track.

Despite the great drama, if you rely on them because of the rain breaks, the analysis of the party will not extend beyond a few sentences. In the face of tremendous hype equipment, Pakistan must fight well with its respectable bowling attack. Failure. India accumulated a whopping 319 in 48 overs, which has set the task beyond rival batters. History. The revised objective is a minor and ignorant distraction.

It was expected that unilateral competition, almost a decisive conclusion. Go through the names of the Pakistani eleven and you know why. Few batters carry a memory value or are familiar. The pitchers, the critical factor X in all Pakistan teams throughout their history, do not rise early out of breath, forget the fear. Ten years and beyond, the analysis of a party between India and Pakistan would have been much more complicated. The performance of the star on the Pakistani side or the lack of it would have consumed more space in the columns.

India Pakistan crushed by 124 races (D / L). AFPIndia crushed Pakistan by 124 shots on Sunday. AFP
As a team, Pakistan still lacked spark, series by series – as unpredictable and inconsistent rule. However, the individual players stood out and shone. When some players of this type have had their weight, the team proved really dangerous. Imagine the presence of Meran Khan, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Saqlain Mushtaq and Shoiab Akhtar in the list of players and Saeed Anwar, Javed Miandad, Inzamam-ul-Haq. We are not too far in time, but the power of the individual players ensured that no world cricket team has given a competition with Pakistan lightly.

The contrast is so obvious with this. Forget the occasional victories – which recently had a win in the series against a West Indies side also down – the Pakistan team can not even be called underperformance. The word means it has the potential, but it can still offer a sub-par. The potential is very invisible. His victories, can only be used shock results. Compare this with Indian performance in recent years. It has grown into a cricket superpower, producing incredible talent continuously. The great stars of yesteryear have been replaced by expert players.

There was a time when the world believed that Indian cricket flowed nadir after the Sunil Gavaskar era, Gundappa Vishwanath, Kapil Dev. The new generation, including Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Saurav Ganguly, made one. After three he hung up his boots, there was panic. But Virat Kohli and his demons fit him better. This also applies to bowlers. The generational change has been firm in Indian cricket as the end of a generation has caused a total cricket disruption in Pakistan.

Where are the stars now? Pakistan, known for throwing supremely talented players, especially bowlers, regularly loses the ability to produce them? Probably yes. The list of players makes the obvious. None of them does not seem to be made for greatness. It is possible that an unstable political environment took off. It is possible that the rest of the world has invested more in cricket and it is better to come. Perhaps it is related to the overall global decline of Pakistan as a country. Worse still, he lost the ability to produce leaders of the stature of Imran, who could lead the team through the force of personality.

However, declining Pakistan as a source of cricket is an interesting study. Is it just a passing phase? Cricket fans in the country would like to believe. Until this happens, the team will remain like a group of schoolchildren, treated like imbeciles.

China sends troops to open first overseas military base in Djibouti

China sends troops to open first overseas military base in Djibouti

Ships carrying personnel to the first Chinese military base abroad, Djibouti in the Horn of Africa, were set up to begin installation of facilities, while China’s military modernizing rapidly expanding its global reach.

Djibouti’s position in the extreme northwest of the Indian Ocean has fueled anxiety in India that was to become another “pearl necklace” of active military coalitions and in India, such as Bangladesh, Myanmar and Sri Lanka.

China began construction of a logistics base in Djibouti last year. It will be used to replenish Navy vessels engaged in peacekeeping and humanitarian peace missions off the coast of Yemen and Somalia in particular.

This is the first overseas naval base in China, although Beijing has officially explained as a logistics center.

The state-owned Xinhua news agency said on Tuesday that boats had stopped from Zhanjiang in southern China to “establish a base of support in Djibouti.”

Navy commander Shen Jinlong “read an order on the construction of the base in Djibouti,” but the news agency did not say when the base would begin operations.

Xinhua said the establishment of the base was a decision made by the two countries after “friendly negotiations and corresponding to the common interests of people on both sides.”

“The base will provide a performance mission in China, such as escort, peacekeeping and humanitarian aid in Africa and Western Asia,” he said.

“The base will also serve for overseas tasks, including military cooperation, joint exercises, evacuation and protection of Chinese rescue teams and emergency, as well as maintaining public safety international strategic airways,” Xinhua said.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily press conference that the base would allow China to “contribute new and greater form” to peace in Africa and the world and would benefit the economic development of Djibouti.

Djibouti, about the size of Wales, is located at the southern entrance of the Red Sea on the way to the Suez Canal. The small barren nation between Ethiopia, Eritrea and Somalia also hosts US, Japanese and French bases.

Said the People’s Liberation Army daily in a commentary on the front page that the facility was a milestone that would increase China’s ability to secure world peace, especially because it had so many peacekeepers in Africa and was so involved in anti-piracy patrols.

China does not seek military expansionism or participate in the arms race, no matter what happened, according to the newspaper.

“These promises will not change due to the construction of the logistics base abroad,” he said.

The Global Times, published by the State, said in an editorial that there could be no mistake, was, in fact, a military base.

“Without a doubt, this is the first base on the outside of the People’s Liberation Army and we are going to base the troops there. This is not a commercial order point.

It is logical that there is no attention on the part of foreign public opinion, “according to the newspaper, which is published by the daily People’s Daily.

China’s military development to protect its own security, he said.

“It’s not trying to control the world.”

There has been persistent speculation in diplomatic circles that China could build more bases, for example, in Pakistan, but the government refused.

Era of ‘Biological Annihilation’ Is Underway, Scientists Warn

Era of ‘Biological Annihilation’ Is Underway, Scientists Warn

From the common swallow of the exotic giraffe, thousands of animal species are in decline, an irreversible sign that the era of mass extinction is underway, according to new research.

The study, released Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, calls the current decline in animal populations a “global epidemic” and part of the “massive extinction sixth” largely caused by the destruction of habitats Human animals. The five previous extinctions were caused by natural phenomena.

Gerardo Ceballos, a researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City, acknowledged that the study is written in an exceptionally alarming tone for an academic research paper.

“It would not be ethical now not to speak in this strong language to draw attention to the seriousness of the problem,” he said.

Dr. Ceballos said he and his coauthors, Paul R. Ehrlich and Rodolfo Dirzo, both professors at Stanford University, are not alarmists, but use scientific data to support their claims that a significant decline in Population and the possible mass extinction of species around the world may be imminent, and that both have been underestimated by many other scientists.

The study authors examined reductions in the range of a species – as a result of factors such as habitat degradation, pollution and climate change, among others – and the number of populations being lost or extrapolated are declining, a method Which they use is used by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature.

They found that about 30 percent of all terrestrial vertebrates – mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians – fell due to population and local losses. In most parts of the world, mammalian populations lose 70% of their members due to habitat loss.

In particular, the cheetahs are cited, which were denied to about 7,000 members; Orangutans of Borneo and Sumatra outons, less than 5000 remain; African lion populations, which declined by 43 per cent since 1993; Pangolines, who have been “decimated”; And giraffes, whose four species currently have less than 100 000 members.

The study defines people as the number of individuals of a given species in a 10,000 square kilometer habitat unit, called quadrant.

Jonathan Losos, a professor of biology at Harvard University, said he was unaware of other documents that have used this method, but that it was “a reasonable first step” to estimate the magnitude of species decline and loss of population.

Dr. Losos also pointed out that to give accurate estimates of wildlife populations was difficult, in part because scientists do not always agree on what defines a people, making the matter inherently subjective.

Sign up for our in depth journalism on climate change around the world.

Despite these problems, Dr. Losos said: “I think this is a very important and worrying document documenting the problems we have with biodiversity are much more important than those commonly thought.”

The authors of the paper suggest that previous estimates of global extinction rates were too low, in part because scientists were too focused on the complete extinction of a species.

Two other estimated vertebrate species disappear each year, the authors wrote, “do not arouse enough interest for the public” and gives the impression that many species are in serious danger or mass extinction is a remote disaster.

In a conservative way, scientists estimate that 200 species have become extinct in the last 100 years. The “normal” extinction rate in the last two million years has been that two species disappear every 100 years due to evolutionary factors and other factors .

Instead of extinctions, we examine how people are: the disappearance of entire populations and decrease the number of individuals in a population.

Importantly, we found that this phenomenon occurs worldwide, but the tropical regions that have the highest biodiversity, experiencing the largest loss of numbers and temperate regions are highest proportions of population loss.

Dr. Ehrlich, who rose in 1960 after writing “The Population Bomb,” a book that predicted the imminent collapse of humanity because of overcrowding, said he had seen a similar phenomenon

Faraz had strict orders to his son when he learned of his visit to a mosque near the London Bridge on Saturday. “Put on the Peshawari suit I bought you, but avoid taqiyah (cap). Why draw unnecessary attention,” said his son security manager of Afghanistan at one of the Edgbaston gates. A day later, while the rest of England mourns the dead in the attack, Faraz is relieved that his son was safe.
While observing followers of India and Pakistan who go to the stadium with the horn, and dhols and various other objects, Faraz says that things are going to be much more difficult for British Asians in their land of adoption. It is said that it will be ready to be examined and treated differently, if not with a pinch of suspicion.
“I went to Afghanistan in Afghanistan for seven days, then I went to Pakistan for five days, and when I returned, I was detained and interrogated, despite my passport showing that I have lived here since 1992.” He said. The fact that he changed his plans at the last minute and returned two days later than expected does not help.
“There are certain areas in the country where, and that is why I mean Afghan and Pakistani people, we have a race for abuse, for them we are all” Pakis. “When there is a terrorist attack like -ci, If you are Indian, raise suspicions, “he adds.
Daughter of Faraz is a field investigator whose job is to collect forensic data and deal with murderers and thugs. But when he wanted to send money during his visit to Pakistan, he was asked not to. “His statements are scanned routinely because of his background and he was concerned that any transaction from South Asia could lead to an interrogation,” he said.
British asians constitute a large part of the population of England. And while Faraz paints a rather serious picture, not everyone with a subcontinent line accepts terrorist incidents such as the attack in London affect it that way.
“This is to think positively.If you think you will be seen in another way, you will be.I was born and raised here I am, and I will not say that people judge me by the color of my skin or where my ancestors come from “Said a fan from Pakistan.
Sitting next to him, there are some Indian fans who expect the national anthem at the beginning. They make fun of the idea of ​​being identified. “How do you care how we see each other. We want English like the rest of them,” one said.
It is not surprising that the security measures of the Champions Trophy eight teams have increased considerably. According to the Cricket International Council, following the London bombings, all three of the team’s hotel sites were blocked because the cricket’s governing body has promised to review its security “in line with threat levels.”

“After the incident last night, all team hotels have been blocked and teams, officials and staff have been approached swiftly. Greater security around the places implemented after the Manchester attack remains in place , Which includes a significant source and increased security for today’s meeting, “the ICC said. Therefore, in Edgbaston, all who enter the stadium were explored more closely.
