A completed iOS 10 jailbreaks from Team Pangu is reportedly on the way as rumors surfaced that one Chinese developer is helping out the hacking team from China in completing the next JB tool. However, the exact release date for the next jailbreak is yet to be revealed.

A security engineer from China’s giant online firm is said to be collaborating for the next jailbreak release. The developer, known for now through his Twitter handle @SparkZheng, is credited to jailbreak iOS 9.3.4 but that version was not open for public.

Specifically for the iOS 10 jailbreak that will unlock the iPhone 7, @SparkZheng is supposedly working on an open source feature designed for Apple’s latest flagship smartphone. That would mean an iPhone 7 running on Pangu’s next jailbreak will be open for further modifications.

 The report was clear on the main reason why Pangu is taking too long in releasing the latest jailbreak. “The release of the iOS 10 jailbreak has been drastically delayed due to the very time-consuming and meticulous process it takes to hack the system,” the report said, stated by MacRomurs.

The latest information of the indicators so far that Team Pangu is hard at word to provide the next jailbreak. While the group has been discreet in the last few months, the jailbreak community remains positively headed that they will be the source of a fully working and untethered iOS 10 jailbreak as Pangu has a proof that Apple’s mobile OS10 can be hacked. The developers have successfully installed Cydia on iOS 10.

Luca Todesco recently illustrated an iPhone 7 working just fine with a jail broken version of iOS 10.1.1, which the developers claimed is a tool that is a reverse compatible with version 10.1.



“His probe in the jailbreaking circle led him to the conclusion that only the Chinese hackers have a credible and progressing work that will lead to the public release of an iOS 10 jailbreaks.”- Recently stated by Saurik; the creator of Cydia, a hack that is compatible with iOS10.

As Sujoy Ghosh‘s much-awaited thriller ‘Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh‘ is set to release this week, the ace-director takes some time out from his busy schedule for a tete-a-tete exclusively with Bombay Times.

Is Vidya Balan a mother or a murderess in ‘Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh’?

Vidya Balan’s performance in Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘Kahaani’ was undoubtedly one of her best and with the sequel things have gone up a notch. However, there was a time when the actor-director duo had a fallout. Speaking about the same exclusively to Bombay Times, Sujoy admits, “In any relationship, the problem arises when people set unrealistic expectations. The same happened with Vidya Balan and me and we stopped talking to each other. It was childish, and we ended up wasting a lot of time.”

Read the full interview of Sujoy on 29th of November only on Bombay Times.

Rural economy hit hard as informal lending breaks down

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Rural economy hit hard as informal lending breaks down
Nov

MUMBAI Life was good for Mitharam Patil, a wealthy money lender from a small village in the Indian state of Maharashtra.

Small-time financiers like Patil would typically lend cash to farmers and traders every day, providing a vital source of funding for a rural economy largely shut out of the banking sector, albeit at interest rates of about 24 percent.

All that came crashing down on Nov. 8, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi banned 500 and 1,000 rupee ($7.30-$14.60) banknotes, which accounted for 86 percent of currency in circulation.

The action was intended to target wealthy tax evaders and end India’s “shadow economy”, but it has also exposed the dependency of poor farmers and small businesses on informal credit systems in a country where half the population has no access to formal banking.

Patil was stuck with 700,000 rupees ($10,144) of worthless cash. He can also only withdraw up to 24,000 rupees from his account every week, barely enough for his own personal needs given he also works as a farmer.

That is bad news for farmers and traders who had come to depend on Patil, despite his high interest rates, given that bank branches are located far from the village, while the process to obtain loans is long and cumbersome.

It may also hurt India’s economy, as the informal sector accounts for 20 percent of gross domestic product and 80 percent of employment. The country is due to report July-September GDP on Wednesday.

“Sowing of winter crops has been started and farmers badly need money. But I couldn’t lend (to) them due to restrictions on withdrawal,” Patil said.

BORROWERS CAN’T PAY MONEY BACK

Some farmers and small businesses say India’s informal credit system has ground to a virtual halt, despite government measures to steer more funds to them, including 230 billion rupees in crop loans.

Not only are money lenders struggling to lend, they are also struggling to get paid.

Saumya Roy, CEO of Vandana Foundation, a micro finance firm, said it has encountered difficulties in collecting payments from borrowers, which will have a knock-on effect on how much they can lend to others.

“We can’t go on lending and suffer losses,” she said.

“How can we force people to pay back when they don’t have money to buy food. How will they pay us?”

The paralysis exposes the slow progress India has made in extending banking to wider segments of the population, a key initiative under Modi.

The government has taken steps, including announcing zero balance accounts for poor people, but growth of bank branches have been low as margins are slender for most lenders.

In 2001, India had 5.3 bank branches per 100,000 people in rural areas. Today that stands at only 7.8 branches, according to Reserve Bank of India data.

Even if farmers or small businesses are willing to go through the process of obtaining a bank loan, which includes filling out forms and several visits to the branch, bank officials say they are too focused now on getting cash out to devote time to small loans.

“We can’t allocate manpower to scrutinize farm loan documents,” said a manager in a rural branch of State Bank of India (SBI.NS).

For some analysts, the breakdown in the informal credit sector points to a government that has failed to grasp how the cash economy impacts ordinary Indians.

“It is this lack of understanding and not appreciating the importance of the cash economy in India on the part of the government that has landed the country in such an unwarranted situation today,” said Sunil Kumar Sinha, an economist and director of public finance at India Ratings.

Disappointed Karthik hopes to return to wicket-keeping duties

Dinesh Karthik last played a Test in 2010 © BCCI

Dinesh Karthik, currently playing for Tamil Nadu as a specialist batsman, is disappointed that a hairline fracture to his little finger on his right hand coincided with India’s hunt for a wicketkeeper to replace the injured Wriddhiman Saha in Mohali.

While it is understood that the selectors would have anyway preferred Parthiv Patel, because of his improved wicketkeeping and experience, Karthik still rued the timing of his injury.

“When there is an opportunity to play for the Indian team and you get injured at that time, it is definitely disappointing,” he told ESPNcricinfo. “I got hit in the first [Ranji Trophy] match against Mumbai. I kept in two matches after that, but it caused quite a bit of pain. Then, my doctor and physio told me that if I continued to keep wickets it could lead to a stress fracture and jeopardise my season. So, I had to rest.

“I padded my little finger heavily and thought I will push myself for another game, but after the third game it was impossible; it was hurting too much. Even during the Dharamsala game against Uttar Pradesh, I couldn’t keep in the second innings because I had kept for nearly 160 overs in the first innings.”

Karthik hasn’t kept for four matches, but hopes to return to his preferred position ahead of Tamil Nadu’s last league game against Gujarat in two weeks. “It is healing and getting better with time,” he said. “After two-three weeks of rest, I should be better.”

This isn’t the first time Karthik has been overlooked for a wicket-keeping berth even in a stop-gap position. Naman Ojha was chosen as Saha’s replacement for the third Test in Sri Lanka last year. This season, however, Karthik may have slipped down the pecking order despite being Tamil Nadu’s top scorer because of his injury. But he still hopes the improvements he’s made as a keeper would be recognised.

“I am very concerned about my contributions as a keeper,” he said. “I have been working with Sameer Dighe for the last three-four years whenever I have got the opportunity. It’s just been one-on-one two or three-day camps a lot of times. That’s really helped my keeping. Even this season, before the Duleep Trophy, I went and had a few sessions with Sameer in Mumbai.

“Keepers are judged a lot like umpires; you are only remembered for your bad ones. Sometimes if you have taken five catches you could have still had a bad day, wherein if you haven’t taken any catch you could have still had a good day, by getting into the line of the ball correctly and taking those difficult ones. The chairman of selectors MSK Prasad knows what keeping is about. I think he will do a very fair job for the keepers.”

Karthik last played a Test over six years ago. His last international was over two years ago. While he’s aware of the competition around him, he said he wasn’t bogged down by it. “It’s important to be competitive and trying to keep getting better at the sport,”That’s something I have always focused on – trying to improve myself in an all-round perspective. I must say that’s one of the reasons why I am able to contribute still for Tamil Nadu.”

Reform architect Manmohan Singh trashes Narendra Modi’s cash crackdown

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Reform architect Manmohan Singh trashes Narendra Modi’s cash crackdown
Nov
25


NEW DELHI Former Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday tore into his successor Narendra Modi’s clampdown on the cash economy, calling it an “organized loot and legalized plunder” of the country.

Singh – the architect of economic reforms that led to years of rapid growth – dubbed Modi’s shock move to scrap 500 and 1,000 rupee banknotes a “monumental mismanagement” that could shave at least 2 percentage points off economic growth.

The so-called demonetization drive is part of a crackdown on corruption, tax evasion and militant financing, but the decision to suck out 86 percent of cash in circulation threatens to push Asia’s third-largest economy into a liquidity crisis.

Opposition parties led by Congress have stalled parliament, demanding a reply from Modi and compensation for the families of dozens of people reported to have died while queuing at banks to swap old money for new.

Belying his reticent image, Singh launched a broadside on the Indian leader, urging him to find pragmatic ways to ease the distress caused by the cash crunch.

“What has been done can erode our people’s confidence in the currency and banking system,” said Singh. “In fact, it’s a case of organized loot and legalized plunder.”

Modi, citing a survey he launched via a smartphone app, says that 90 percent of people expressed their support for the ban on old banknotes. The survey was not representative but drew half a million responses.

With a small stock of smaller notes available and people struggling to get hold of scarce new 500 and 2,000 rupee bills, consumers are holding back spending and businesses are suffering.

Delays in replacing canceled notes and restrictions on cash withdrawals “reflect very poorly” on Modi’s team, the finance ministry and the Reserve Bank of India, Singh said.

In the year to March 2017, the cash crunch is expected to pull down economic growth from last year’s 7.6 percent by as much as 4.1 percentage points, brokerage Ambit Capital reckons.

Moody’s Investors Service on Thursday warned the persistent cash crunch could worsen asset quality at Indian banks.

Evin Lewis battled cramps and struck three sixes after bringing up his century but West Indies fell short © AFP

The Queens Sports Club has witnessed a tie, and a one-run defeat, but still no cigar for West Indies. For the second time in two matches, they went into the final over of a chase with a chance to win. But yet again, they fell just short. Captain Jason Holder put their shortcoming against Sri Lanka on Wednesday down to the relative greenness of this squad.

“I think it’s inexperience,” Holder said. “There’s obviously situations that we’re not accustomed to being in. We’re still a relatively young side. Everybody’s trying to make their mark. And I think it boils down to inexperience, and having that know-how at the end to get us across the line. We had set up the game nicely, and Evin Lewis played an exceptional knock to put us in the situation that we were in.”

Lewis, playing in just his fourth ODI, brought up a maiden fifty in the 12th over, and then reached a 91-ball century, with 12 fours and a six, to leave West Indies well placed at 177 for 3. This was the first time he had opened on the tour, and it seemed to have paid off.

“He’s one of those guys that likes the ball coming on, so we just felt that with 330 on the board we needed to get off well in the Powerplay and make use of that first up,” Holder explained. “Him and Johnson Charles did a great job there and put the Sri Lankan bowlers under pressure, capitalising on every bad ball that was bowled.”

He wasn’t done there, opening up to smite three more sixes as wickets fell around him, and he reached 148 (second only to Chris Gayle’s 153 not out for the highest ODI score by a West Indian in Zimbabwe), battling cramps in the latter stages of his innings. “He was there out in the field for 50 overs fielding, and then came back to bat through most of the overs,” Holder said. “It was a bit of cramp, and I don’t think it was anything too serious.”

Lewis was eventually run-out after a horrible mix-up with his captain. It was the third run-out of the innings, and left West Indies needing 69 off 57. In the company of Carlos Brathwaite, Holder took the game into the last three overs with his side still within touching distance of the asking rate. With 10 needed from the final over, Holder could only manage a single off the first ball to put No. 10 Sulieman Benn on strike. Holder would not see the strike again until the final ball, when three were needed but a pinpoint, 144kph yorker from Nuwan Pradeep secured Sri Lanka’s win.

“I was just trying to get on strike, but credit must also be given to the Sri Lankan bowlers,” Holder said. “I thought they hit their yorkers really well, and the ball was also tailing in to the right-hander. Benn did a tremendous job to hit the six that he did, to bring the game back closer, but unfortunately he got out afterwards. The last ball was a very good ball.”

The defeat means West Indies face a must-win game against Zimbabwe on Friday if they are to reach the final. They may have to play that game without their opening bowler, after discomfort in his hamstring meant Shannon Gabriel could only bowl five overs today.

“We’re managing some niggles, and Shannon wasn’t able to finish his overs today, so we’re waiting to see if he’s good to go for the next game,” Holder said. “We’ll see in the next few days.”

Rail crash toll hits 146, survivor search called off

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Rail crash toll hits 146, survivor search called off
Nov
22


PUKHRAYAN, India/NEW DELHI Rescuers on Monday called off a search of the mangled carriages of a derailed train after pulling more bodies from the wreckage, taking to at least 146 the number of passengers killed in the disaster.

Sunday’s derailment in Uttar Pradesh was India’s deadliest train tragedy since 2010 and has renewed concern about poor safety on the state-run network. A lifeline for millions, the railways suffer from chronic underinvestment, which has left it with ageing tracks and outdated rolling stock.

Rescue teams worked through the night with cranes and cutters to disentangle the train before police halted the search of the 14 carriages that derailed in the early hours while most passengers slept.

“The rescue operations are over. We don’t expect to find any more bodies,” said Zaki Ahmed, the police inspector general in the city of Kanpur, about 65 km (40 miles) from Pukhrayan, the crash site.

All of the carriages, some crumpled beyond recognition, have since been removed from the tracks.

The crash came during India’s busy wedding season and media said blood-stained bags of saris and wedding cards carried by at least one wedding party on board were scattered beside the wreckage.

The derailment injured close to 200 people, scores of them seriously, officials said. After the tragedy, relatives thronged hospitals in a search for survivors.

A railways spokesman said the train carried 1,000 people travelling on reservations, but 700 more were estimated to have squeezed into the unreserved carriages.

AGEING BADLY

The largely colonial-era railway system, the world’s fourth largest, carries a saturation-level total of about 23 million people daily. Ageing badly, its average speeds top just 50 kph (30 mph) and train accidents are common.

The crash is a stark reminder of the obstacles facing Prime Minister Narendra Modi in delivering on his promise to turn the railways into a more efficient, safer network befitting India’s economic power.

Modi this year pledged record levels of investment and has announced a new high-speed line funded by Japan, but the main network has made little progress on upgrading tracks or signalling equipment.

He has also shied away from raising the highly subsidised fares that leave the railways with next to nothing for investment. By some analysts’ estimates, they need 20 trillion rupees ($293.34 billion) of investment by 2020.

Modi held a political rally on Sunday about 210 km (130 miles) from the crash site in Uttar Pradesh, which heads to the polls early next year in an election his Bharatiya Janata Party is vying to win.

Mayawati, the state’s former chief minister who uses only one name and is a Modi critic, said the government should have “invested in mending tracks instead of spending billions and trillions of rupees on bullet trains”, media reported.

Junior railway minister Manoj Sinha said a fractured track might have caused the train to roll off the rails on its journey between Indore and Patna. The government has ordered an inquiry to determine the precise cause.

Sunday’s crash is India’s worst rail tragedy since the collision of a passenger and a goods train in 2010, which the government blamed on sabotage by Maoist rebels.

In 2005, a train was crushed by a rock and another plunged into a river, each disaster killing more than 100 people. In what was probably India’s worst rail disaster, a train fell into a river in the eastern state of Bihar of 1981, killing an estimated 500 to 800 people.

Highlights – Mahmudullah, Shafiul star in Khulna’s win

Khulna Titans climbed to the top of the BPL points table after a 22-run win over Barisal Bulls. As was the case in their four previous wins, it was their bowlers who made their moderate total look very competitive.

Shafiul Islam led the five-man bowling attack to defend their 151 runs comfortably. The paceman took four wickets while Junaid Khan and Mosharraf Hossain took two each as Barisal capitulated for 129 in 19.3 overs.

Barisal’s chase was always going to be interesting as they had a batting line-up to compete with Khulna’s discipline. Jeevan Mendis, promoted to open the innings, struck four fours on his way to 21 before falling to Shafiul in the fourth over. His opening partner Fazle Mahmud was earlier trapped lbw for a duck in the second over.

After Shamsur Rahman was caught at long-on cheaply, Barisal’s main batsmen Shahriar Nafees and Mushfiqur Rahim added 43 runs for the fourth wicket. Nafees batted at a slower pace, hitting two fours in his 28 off 35 balls. Mushfiqur held the chase together till the 16th over before he top-edged a pull after making 35 off 23 balls with four fours. Thisara Perera’s failure with the bat made it harder for Barisal who folded in the last four overs of their chase.

After they had decided to bowl, Barisal were given early breakthroughs by Taijul Islam who struck twice in the fifth over to remove the Khulna openers Hasanuzzaman and Andre Fletcher. Both batsmen holed out to Abu Hider at long-on.

Mahmudullah ensured that they recovered from an ordinary Powerplay, adding 53 for the third wicket with Riki Wessels. He slammed three sixes through long-on and two fours in his 26-ball 44, before becoming Taijul’s third victim, caught at point. Next ball, Shuvagata Hom was run-out after a mix-up with Wessels with both batsmen ending at the non-striker’s end.

Wessels, who had contributed just five runs to the third-wicket stand, found a higher gear as he struck four fours and a six over long-on in his 29-ball 40. Like Mahmudullah, Wessels’ wicket also hurt Khulna, who added 39 runs in the last five overs.

  • Iphone 7 Is Presented in Madrid
  • (Photo : Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno / Getty Images) Persistent individuals found some way to break into iPhone 7’s heavy program which disallows hackers from breaking in.

A week after Apple’s release of their latest model, iPhone 7, users who are used to downloading Apple apps through jailbreaking waited for Pangu’s iOS 10 10.1.1 software release. However, this time, Pangu seemed to be unsuccessful on its mission.

Despite this, persistent individuals found some way to break into iPhone 7’s heavy program which disallows hackers from breaking in. WCCF Tech showed some sources from YouTube who demonstrated how to crack iOS 10 10.1.1. However, the entry clearly said that the software is not made for public use. Which means, only the hacker can do the jailbreaking, unless he or she shares it to somebody else.

The reason behind why this hacker does not allow the jailbreaking software for iOS 10 10.1.1 to become open for public use is that the software itself is still not stable enough. The hackers said they need to observe how the software works in iPhone 7 even more, however, they also did not promise to make it public. Another reason is that if they release the software, Apple will immediately find a solution that will overhaul the jailbreak software.

There’s another software that can be downloaded by iPhone 7 users but reports warn that this might only disappoint users, according to Morning News USA. While the software promises a lot of good things for iOS 10 10.1.1, it might also contain a lot of malwares since most of its apps need a lot of clicking and redirecting.

For now, it is still a big question whether anyone is ready to release a very reliable jailbreak software for iOS 10 and 10.1.1 or not at all. The report speculates that Pangu’s silence may mean two things: they are cooking a software that is very powerful or they are not doing anything at all.

India acts to help farmers hit by black money crackdown

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on India acts to help farmers hit by black money crackdown
Nov

NEW DELHI India’s government on Thursday announced immediate steps to ease a cash crunch for farmers amid widespread criticism of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s shock decision to withdraw high-value bills in the middle of the sowing and wedding season.

Farmers have been left stranded as traders have no cash to pay for their produce, while millions of Indians lined up outside banks and post offices for the ninth day to exchange old banknotes or withdraw rationed money from their accounts.

Modi dropped a bombshell on Nov. 8 by abolishing 500 and 1,000 rupee notes that accounted for 86 percent of cash in circulation. The move was aimed at cracking down on the shadow economy but has brought India’s cash economy to a virtual standstill.

In the latest in a series of ad hoc steps, Modi allowed farmers to withdraw up to 25,000 rupees ($368) a week against their crop loans to ensure that sowing of winter crops “takes place properly”, a senior finance ministry official said.

Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das also said a time limit for farmers to pay crop insurance premiums has been extended by 15 days.

Many of India’s 260 million farmers have no bank accounts and depend on local money lenders to fund sowing, which means those that have to borrow to sow winter crops like wheat or rapeseed could face debt trouble without a good harvest.

The government also slashed the amount of old money people can exchange for new notes to 2,000 rupees – or just under $30 – from a limit of 4,500 rupees.

The move sought to deter huge numbers of people queuing to swap cash repeatedly, some of whom are suspected to be acting on behalf of racketeers trying to launder “black cash” before a Dec. 30 deadline for depositing or swapping old notes.

Kent have accepted an invitation to play in the 2017 Regional Super50, the West Indies domestic one-day competition – the first time they will have competed in a recognised overseas tournament.

Kent Spitfires will face the West Indies’ Under-19 world champions as well as senior sides from Trinidad and Tobago, Windward Islands and Leeward Islands in the group stages of the tournament which takes place in Antigua from January 24 to February 18.

Kent’s chief executive Jamie Clifford said: “It is a huge honour for Kent Cricket to be invited by West Indies Cricket Board to join their domestic 50-over competition in early 2017. It will be the perfect opportunity to play competitive off-season cricket and good overseas experience for the players.”

England are also scheduled to be in the Caribbean in March for a three-match ODI series.

Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt in a still from 'Dear Zindagi'Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt in a still from ‘Dear Zindagi’

Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt‘s coming-of-age film ‘Dear Zindagi’ has been given the go-ahead by the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC), without a single cut. According to reports, the film directed by Gauri Shinde has been granted a ‘UA’ certificate as it gears up for its release on November 25.

At a time when the Censor Board has been criticised for its stringent rules and regulations pertaining to certain scenes in films, this SRK-Alia starrer has sailed through without a single verbal or visual cut. If reports are to be believed, then the Board members felt that it ‘would be a crime’ to cut even a single scene in the film. They also regard Shah Rukh as an A-list star, with the least censorial intervention required in his films.

‘Dear Zindagi’ also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Kunal Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Angad Bedi.

India announces new measures to increase supply of cash

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on India announces new measures to increase supply of cash
Nov

NEW DELHI India announced new measures on Monday to ease the cash crunch faced by millions after the government’s decision last week to abolish large denomination notes to try and uncover billions of dollars in undeclared wealth.

The government will install new micro cash machines across the country and has asked banks to waive off transaction charges on debit and credit cards, Economic Affairs Secretary Shaktikanta Das told reporters.

Das said the government would also raise the cash withdrawal limit of at least three-month old current accounts to 50,000 rupees ($739) per week and said recalibrated cash machines would start dispensing new 2,000 rupee notes within two days.

Large crowds of Indians have gathered outside banks in recent days but struggled to withdraw money or swap the old 500 and 1,000 rupee notes that were banned last week.

Highlights – Khulna Titans defend 144

Khulna Titans moved to the top of the points table with a 13-run win over Comilla Victorians, who have now lost their first three matches in the Bangladesh Premier League. It took another collective performance from Khulna’s bowlers to get over a batting collapse that gave them a modest total.

Comilla, on the other hand, would feel that they let go of a great chance having fought back to restrict Khulna to 144 for 9 in 20 overs. Their chase never found rhythm, especially after Marlon Samuels fell in the 14th over. Rashid Khan and Sohail Tanvir – who had taken 3 for 19 earlier – tried to resurrect the chase in the death overs, but weren’t quite up to it.

Samuels, who made 30 off 34 balls with two fours and a six, held the ace in Comilla’s chase but he was undone by a Shafiul Islam delivery that kept low and got through his defense. They were reduced to 86 for five, after Liton Das, Imrul Kayes, Nazmul Hossain Shanto and Ashar Zaidi had thrown away their wickets by needlessly playing across the line.

Earlier, Khulna had racked up 92 for 1 at end of the tenth over, but couldn’t make best use of the start. Comilla’s bowlers held them back, conceding just 29 runs in the last five overs.

Andre Fletcher and Hasanuzzaman, Khulna’s third opening pair in four matches, gave them their highest first-wicket partnership. They found boundaries regularly as they put on 45 in 4.4 overs, before Fletcher skied Mashrafe Mortaza after making 23 with three fours and a six.

Hasanuzaman, in the meantime, struck fours through square-leg, covers, over point and even one over the keeper via a top-edge. He was Mashrafe’s third victim of the evening, being flummoxed by a slower ball after top-scoring with 37 off 30 balls.

Nazmul Hossain Shanto, then got the wicket of Mahmudullah with his part-time offspin, after the Titans captain played a reverse sweep early in his innings and ended up getting caught at point. Shanto then got Alok Kapali, reducing Khulna to 117 for 5 in the 16th over. Comilla had dried up the boundaries in the last five overs at that point, until Kevon Cooper, sent in – curiously – at No. 8, struck a four and six. He hardly got strike in the last over, as he was dismissed for 11 off the last ball of the innings.

However, he came good with the ball and conceded only 16 off his four overs. He was one of the three Khulna bowlers who collectively conceded only 16 in the last three overs of the Victorians’ chase.

Japan to supply India with nuclear power equipment, technology

TOKYO Japan and India signed a civilian nuclear accord on Friday, opening the door for Tokyo to supply New Delhi with fuel, equipment and technology for nuclear power production, as India looks to atomic energy to sustain its rapid economic growth.

It was the first time Japan, the only country to have suffered a nuclear attack, had concluded such a pact with a country that is not a signatory to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT).

“Today’s signing … marks a historic step in our engagement to build a clean energy partnership,” Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi told a joint news conference with his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe.

The accord stipulates that the nuclear fuel and equipment provided can only be used for peaceful purposes, and a separate document signed in parallel has a clause allowing Japan to terminate the pact if India conducts a nuclear test.

“As a sole nation to have been nuclear-bombed, we bear the responsibility for leading the international community towards the realisation of a world without nuclear weapons,” Abe told the same news conference.

“The agreement is a legal framework to ensure that India will act responsibly for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. It will also lead us to having India participate practically in the international non-proliferation regime.”

India says the NPT is discriminatory and that it has concerns about its two nuclear-armed neighbours, China and Pakistan.

India is already in advanced negotiations to have U.S.-based Westinghouse Electric, owned by Japan’s Toshiba Corp, build six nuclear reactors in southern India, part of New Delhi’s plan to ramp up nuclear capacity more than 10 times by 2032.

Japanese nuclear plant makers such as Toshiba and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd are desperate to expand their business overseas as the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster chilled domestic demand for new nuclear plants.

The agreement with Japan follows a similar one with the United States in 2008, which gave India access to nuclear technology after decades of isolation.

That step was seen as the first big move to build India into a regional counterweight to China.

On India’s infrastructure development, Abe said that construction of a high-speed railway connecting Mumbai and Ahmedabad, which will be based on Japan’s “Shinkansen” bullet train technology, was scheduled to start in 2018, with commercial operation slated for 2023.

“In Japan, the era of high economic growth began when Shinkansen started its service in 1964. I hope the advent of high-speed railway will trigger fresh economic growth in India as well,” Abe said.

Modi earlier on Friday praised the “growing convergence” of views between his nation and Japan, saying strong ties would enable them to play a stabilising role in Asia and the world.

Watch – Highlights of Khulna’s dramatic collapse

Shahid Afridi and Arafat Sunny took 7 for 12 between them as Rangpur Riders demolished Khulna Titians for 44, before breezing to the target in eight overs, with nine wickets in hand. In their second dominating performance in as many days, Rangpur swept to the biggest win in BPL in terms of balls remaining.

Khulna’s score of 44 surpassed Barisal Bulls’ 58 as the lowest team total in BPL history. They also became the ninth team in T20 history to be bowled out for below 50. Afridi took his fifth four-wicket haul while Sunny, bowling his left-arm spin with a revamped action, had dream bowling figures of 3 for 0 in 2.4 overs.

Rangpur took just two balls to seize the initiative. Nicholas Pooran was bowled behind his legs for the second game in a row, this time to Sohag Gazi. Gazi then threw down the stumps at the non-striker’s end, where Abdul Mazid was lazily short of his ground, to make it 10 for 2..

Mahmudullah fell leg before to Richard Gleeson in the next over before Afridi and Sunny waded into the Khulna innings.

With his first ball, Afridi bowled Rikki Wessels with one that kept low before trapping Alok Kapali leg before with the second ball. Shuvagata Hom struck two fours at the other end but, in Afridi’s next over, made the mistake of going back to his full ball, to be bowled for 12, the only Khulna batsman with a double-figure score.

There were two more fours in the Khulna innings before Arafat Sunny tore up the tail with three wickets in his 2.4 overs. Ariful Haque was trapped leg before before Junaid Khan was caught at midwicket in the same over. Afridi then took his fourth wicket – Nur Alam – and Sunny added his third, bowling out Khulna in just 10.4 overs.

As if to show that the pitch had no demons, Mohammad Shahzad came out to slam three fours off Junaid Khan. However, he chipped one back at the same bowler in the third over to depart for 13. Soumya Sarkar and Mohammad Mithun closed out the chase to complete a thrashing that took less than 19 overs, all told.
