Posted by Admin in NewsComments Off on Eastern Province CEO Chellan to helm Associate cricket in Africa
Associate cricket in Africa will have a new office and a new man at the helm. Jesse Chellan, former Dolphins and current Eastern Province CEO, has been appointed as the ICC’s regional director for cricket in Africa and will take up the post, based at CSA’s offices in Johannesburg, in September.
Chellan effectively takes over from Cassim Sulieman who was the CEO of the Africa Cricket Association, an organisation which had offices at Benoni’s Willowmoore Park but has not been brought under the ICC’s operations. That means development on the continent will be co-ordinated by the ICC, with Chellan overseeing all activities.
A pharmaceutical graduate, Chellan has a wealth of experience in cricket, having headed up the Dolphins since 2009. He was in charge there for five years, during which they won their only standalone cup in the 20-over tournament, before moving to Port Elizabeth in late 2014.
He has spent 17 months at the Eastern Province union, which was steeped in financial trouble on his arrival. During his tenure at Eastern Province, Chellan ushered the union onto stable ground and secured sponsors. They were named CSA’s most improved affiliate in South Africa in 2016, which earned them financial reward. He has also overseen several upgrades to St George’s Park, particularly in the corporate suites. Eastern Province will begin the process to recruit a new CEO next week.
They are not the only South African outfit in search of new leadership. Kwa-Zulu Natal are also on the hunt after Pete de Wet took up an offer from Central Districts in New Zealand and is relocating next month.

Zestia is an easy to install alternative that iOS jailbreaks fans shoudl consider, safer and something that will not place iPhones or iPads in compromised situations.
It should be noted that Zestia is not a full jailbreak. Rather, it is seen as the best alternative for stock iOS. It was previously known as X-Cydia and does come with certain limitations.
The fact that iOS jailbreaks may not be coming soon could make Zestia as the best alternative for iOS users. The best part of it all is that users don’t even have to worry about issues like security and voiding warranties.
With nothing much to lose, iPhone or iPad owners who have been waiting for a jailbreak may as well give it a shot. It may not carry the full perks previous iOS jailbreaks have but at least Zestia offers something close to that.
Installing Zestia is not that complicated. All users have to do is head on over to zestia.lmdinteractive.com and install the software according to this Phone Radar.
Once Zestia has been downloaded, users need to open the setup page and click on install found at the upper right corner. After installation, navigate to the home screen and look for the Zestia icon.
From here, users can select from the apps they can download to their phone. Assuming that an app has been downloaded, users need to do some more tweaks via the phone settings.
Head on over to the GeneralProfile and locate the app that was downloaded. Look for the Trust option and tap trust again in the box that would appear via the modal box.
Once you follow those steps, you can now launch the app you just downloaded using Zestia. You may notice that a lot of the apps you may find are the ones which may not even make it to the App Store. Some may interest you and others not.
Compared to what an iOS jailbreak brings there are limitations. If these features are not enough, looking or waiting for a full jailbreak is probably best according to another Value Walk.
Right now, there is no breakthrough from Pangu or TaiG when it comes to a reliable jailbreak. In a previosu post, it was reported that Pangu will be hosting an event on July 1 and many are hoping it would be a potential iOS 9.3.2 or iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak. That should be known soon.
The video below provides a visual step-by-step guide on how to install Zestia on your iOS device.

Irrfan on ‘Kabali’ poster comment: It was a joke
Commenting on Muharram, the actor said that Muslims have made a mockery of Muharram and while it is meant for mourning, people celebrate it like a festival.
Irrfan also criticised Muslim leaders for not speaking up on the issue of terrorism and also asked the general public to question politicians over this issue.
His comments got a rebuttal from the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) member Zafaryab Gilabi, who condemned the actor by saying that he is not a religious leader and his advice is not needed. Maulana Khatri, secretary of Jamaat-e-Ulema-e-Hind also responded to the actors comment by saying that Irrfan Khan must concentrate on his career and should not make random statements.

Posted by Admin in NewsComments Off on Monsoon rains 1 percent above average in past week
NEW DELHI Monsoon rains in India were 1 percent above average in the week ending June 29, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Thursday.
The June-September monsoon has remained 12 percent lower than average so far, but rains have covered almost the entire country, and helped quicken the planting process of summer crops such as rice, soybeans, cotton and pulses.
Though the monsoon arrived in India on June 8, a week later than usual, IMD expects rains to pick up pace in July.
