David Warner was a notable absentee from Australia's practice session in Hyderabad on Thursday, struggling again with a bout of gastro – Cricket news from India v Australia.

Ten years ago, leg-spin was all the rage. Shane Warne was busy carving up whole batting line-ups while cultivating his image as a bona fide international celebrity before the IPL had even been dreamt up. Stuart MacGill was acknowledged as an excellent

The high-pitched noise over the, well, pitches is misguided in its tenor. I would go so far as to say that the 'home advantage' in terms of tailor-made pitches is what makes it a fair battle.

India have a few issues of their own to sort out before the second Test begins in Hyderabad on 2 March.

Major thrust for infrastructure sector in Budget

Infrastructure got a major thrust in Budget 2013-14 with Finance Minister P Chidambaram today announcing a slew of measures to boost the sector’s growth, like raising Rs. 50,000 crore through tax-free bonds, setting up of major ports and a road regulator.

“While every sector can absorb new investment, it is the infrastructure sector that needs large volumes of investment,” Chidambaram said emphasising on the need to create “new and innovative instruments to mobilise funds” for meeting infra investments targets of Rs 55,00,000 crore in 12th Plan.

The private sector will share 47 per cent of the investment, he said.

“The key to restart the growth engine is to attract more investment, both from domestic investors and foreign investors…. We will improve communication of our policies to remove any apprehension or distrust in the minds of investors,” the Minister said.

Debt funds for infrastructure would be encouraged and tax—free bonds up to Rs 50,000 crore will be allowed in 2013—14, Chidambaram said in his Budget speech.

Government would seek funds from multilateral agencies like World Bank and Asian Development Bank to build roads in North East, linking it to neighbouring Myanmar.

To give a big push to the highways sector, he said a road regulatory authority has been proposed that will address issues adversely impacting the sector like financial stress, enhanced construction risk and contract management.

The bottlenecks stalling road projects have been addressed and 3,000 kilometres of road projects in Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh will be awarded in the first six months of 2013—14, he said.

“The Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) project has made rapid progress. Plans for seven new cities at industrial corridors have been finalised and work on two new smart industrial cities at Dholera, Gujarat and Shendra Bidkin, Maharashtra will start during 2013—14,” he said.

To augment port sector, Chidambaram said “two new major ports will be established in Sagar, West Bengal and in Andhra Pradesh to add 100 million tonnes (MT) of capacity.” With this the number of major ports in the country will increase to 12.

In addition, a new outer harbour will be developed in the VOC port at Thoothukkudi, Tamil Nadu through PPP at an estimated cost of Rs 7,500 crore to add 42 MT of capacity.

These moves are aimed at catering to increased import of coal and oil and container volumes in the years to come.

Cargo traffic at ports during the six—month period ended September 2012 grew by just 1.8 per cent to 455.8 million tonnes due to decline in shipments handled at major ports.

On the waterways front, in addition to five inland waterways, he said: “I am happy to announce that the Minister of Water Resources will move a Bill in Parliament to declare the Lakhipur—Bhanga stretch of river Barak in Assam as the sixth national waterway.”

Why Salman Khan vs Ranbir Kapoor may be an epic box office battle

After missing the Eid deadline, Salman Khan is now looking at releasing his upcoming film Mental (directed by brother Sohail Khan) on October 2. The Gandhi Jayanti holiday is followed by the weekend which he feels will help the film.

By doing so, Salman will be taking on Abhinav Kashyap’s film with Ranbir Kapoor which also releases on the same date. To stir your memory Salman and his brother Arbaaz Khan had severe differences with Abhinav Kashyap when he dropped out of Dabangg 2. Moreover Ranbir is dating Salman’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif.

A source says, “This time around Salman’s film has gone on the floors without any fanfare. Even the cast is being kept under wraps. The shoot has just started in Dubai and although the entire trade expected the film to be wrapped up and released on Eid (July 8), the fact is that Salman is not eyeing Eid this time.

The source added, “Salman intends to kill two birds with one stone, as it is well known that Salman and Abhinav can’t see eye to eye after Abhinav decided to leave Dabangg 2 in spite of the success of Dabangg. Salman also wants to take on Ranbir now and is not bothered by the fact that his arch enemy Shah Rukh Khan’s Chennai Express might release on Eid.

The source further said, “In the past Salman’s God Tussi Great Ho clashed with Ranbir’s Bachna Ae Haseeno and Salman was down that time. He does not forget these things easily and now is his time to strike back.”

I believe the creation of the new HTC One is an achievement, not just because of its long list of features and specs, but because we worked together across the company to reinvent what a phone could be. And we delivered.

The HTC One has made a huge splash so far, but you have to wonder, will the HTC One begin the path to recovery and the start of a new era of popularity for HTC, or is the praise heading the phone's way going to be short-lived? This is a good question.

Though some are saying that HTC's recently announced HTC One flagship smartphone bears a lot of physical similarities to Apple's iPhone 5, there may be more in common between the two smartphone rivals under the hood. According to HTC, the HTC One

That certainly didn't take long! One week after being unveiled to the world, the HTC One has been named “Best Phone” and “Best in Show” in the inaugural TechRadar awards at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

HTC decided to invest in such a brand by launching the One series of smartphones last year, although the company was not able to impose its own product names to certain carriers. Then, just a few days ago, the company launched the HTC One, which is
