Jailbreak iOS 11.3 With Cydia

Min Zheng, a Chinese hacker and security researcher, has successfully the ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3 by installing Cydia.

Zheng had previously demonstrated an ability to get root shell access on the platform, but a recent tweet from the security research demonstrates that he was able to achieve read and write access in order to jailbreak iOS 11.3 and install Cydia.

Unfortunately for those in the community looking to jailbreak iOS 11.3, Zheng is fully cooperating with Apple when it comes to patching out the problems. As a security researcher for Alibaba, his interest is more in testing and increasing security rather than blowing operating systems wide open and allowing people to jailbreak iOS 11.3 at will.

However, one thing to keep in mind is that it’s now confirmed possible to install Cydia – it’s just a matter of the jailbreaking community reaching the solution on their own rather than with the assistance of Zheng. Any fixes from Apple will come in a patch, and if they choose not to install that patch they can work on the ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3.

The tweet, included below, comes with the words “This time. It’s a real JB now,” confirming that Zheng was able to bypass some of the problems the community was having previously and actually install Cydia on the device. As you can see in the tweet, two screenshots show Cydia running on the iPhone home screen as well as a picture with root shell access showing the existence of Cydia.app in the /Applications folder.

It’s exciting to see that the ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3 is there, but it’s important to keep expectations in check. Min Zheng is a security professional that was able to install Cydia using complex methods that used a lot of work in the command line – a process that isn’t exactly feasible for the average device owner.

While jailbreak developers may be able to streamline the process moving forward, the fact that Zheng is cooperating with Apple rather than with the jailbreaking community is certainly going to make the process take longer and it will make it more difficult moving forward into new builds of the operating system.

There’s a possibility that Zheng will eventually make his work public, but given his previous statements and his current cooperation with Apple it’s extremely unlikely that his specific command line work will ever come to light. The ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3 will have to come from the community themselves.

As far as the next public jailbreak goes, we expect to see one for iOS 11.2.6 before people are able to jailbreak iOS 11.3. The iOS 11.3 fix should follow shortly thereafter, but only if Ian Beer’s exploit is able to be turned into a usable jailbreak.

Unfortunately, Apple has already closed the iOS 11.3 signing window, meaning that it will be basically impossible for people to downgrade moving forward. If you haven’t yet upgraded and are looking to jailbreak iOS 11.3, make sure you don’t accidentally move to the latest operating system. As Zheng cooperates with Apple, it may be more difficult to move forward than we think.

Voges new WA coach in ‘natural progression’ from Langer

1:07 AM ET

Western Australia’s new coach Adam Voges will seek to preserve the culture fostered by his predecessor Justin Langer while also aiming to improve on the state’s recent Sheffield Shield results, which have faded after consecutive final appearances in 2014 and 2015.

Voges was formally unveiled on Thursday as the coach of WA and also the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League, having previously served as state and Scorchers captain in a long and effective partnership with Langer since late 2012. The other candidates for the job had been Langer’s assistant Kade Harvey and another former WA batsman in Simon Katich.

Since the end of his Test career in late 2016, Voges served out his contracts with Middlesex and the Scorchers while also dabbling in broadcasting. A lack of coaching experience was not seen as a barrier to Voges succeeding Langer, given the experienced support network of Harvey, Geoff Marsh, Wayne Andrews and David Fitzgerald will remain.

“I’m thrilled about leading this group of exciting young players. We already have strong foundations in WA and I’m looking forward to building on them, the values, the structures and the people are all excellent,” Voges said. “The high performance staff are some of the best in the country, even in the world. I’ve worked with them as a player and captain for a long time and know I couldn’t do this role as well without their support.

“The next step to take WA forward is to grow our program and build depth in young local cricketers. We’ve had some terrific success in white-ball cricket over the past few seasons and we’ve seen some great inclusions into the Australian team, but to keep our program strong we need to build depth in the next wave of WA cricketers. The focus for this year is very much improving our red-ball cricket and making sure we’re right up there in the Sheffield Shield.”

WA’s success under Langer has led to the challenge of finding more players capable of representing the state and also the Scorchers, something underlined by the fact that no fewer than six Warriors – Ashton Agar, Shan Marsh, Jhye Richardson, D’Arcy Short, Marcus Stoinis and Andrew Tye – were included in the 15-man squad to play in England in June, with Mitchell Marsh only missing due to injury. New South Wales, by contrast, had only one player included – Nathan Lyon.

The WACA chief executive Christina Matthews described the choice of Voges as a natural progression from Langer. “We’re thrilled to have Adam heading up our WA men’s program, it was the natural progression to appoint Adam after Justin left,” she said. “As captain, Adam played a huge role in helping to develop the culture that has delivered us considerable success over the past few years.

“Adam has an understanding of all the players and we know he works well with the current staff. Adam has a playing group that believe in his brand of leadership, players who have followed him for many years and look up to him as a trusted mentor and friend.

“Keeping both the Scorchers and Warriors under the same head coach was a big win, it’s worked well for us in the past and Adam can provide that consistency. The WACA Board and management have complete confidence in Adam and we look forward to watching him succeed in his new role.”

India’s growth likely topped 7 percent again in January-March quarter

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India likely retained the position of world’s fastest growing major economy in the January-March quarter, surpassing China’s growth of 6.8 percent, driven by gains in manufacturing and consumer spending.

The median in a Reuters poll on the latest quarter’s annual growth INGDPQ=ECI was 7.3 percent, the best pace since July-September 2016, the quarter before the government unexpectedly scrapped high-value currency notes.

Forecasts for January-March ranged from 6.9 to 7.7 percent.

The government will release GDP data on Thursday around 1200 GMT. On Monday, Economic Affairs Secretary Subhash Chandra Garg said growth in Asia’s third largest economy was expected to grow 7.3-7.5 percent.

The data, combined with April’s higher annual inflation pace of 4.58 percent, could put pressure on the Reserve Bank of India to raise interest rates next week after keeping them on hold for a fourth straight meeting last month.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is expected to seek a second term in 2019 general elections, has launched a nation-wide goods and services tax and allowed foreign investment in defence and e-commerce businesses to boost economic growth.

However, a botched implementation of the GST nearly scuttled India’s growth prospects in the near term.

Economists said a rise in capital investment growth to near 9 percent in the last quarter of the 2017/18 fiscal year compared with 2.4 percent a year earlier indicated a pick-up in the private investments.

Yet banking credit, a main source for corporate borrowing, remained weak following a surge in bad loans, as banks have been reluctant to extend new loans. The 21 state lenders hold two-thirds of banking assets, and accounted for the bulk of the record $150 billion of soured loans in the banking sector in 2017.

Consumption, which accounts for nearly 70 percent of the $2.5 trillion economy likely remained firm, supporting economic growth as reflected in the higher sales of consumer durables and vehicles.

“Corporate sector results and the industrial production readings have been better than expected. Hence, the industrial sector could pull the GDP growth number up,” said Tushar Arora, senior economist with HDFC Bank.

Growth is likely to get a boost from monsoon rains, which hit the southern state of Kerala a few days earlier than normal, potentially brightening the outlook for agricultural output.

RISING OIL PRICES

The biggest risk India faces is rising crude oil prices LCOc1, which this month hit $80 a barrel, their highest since 2014.

India meets 80 percent of its oil needs from imports.

Prices of diesel and petrol surged to a record high last week, stoking opposition criticism of Modi’s administration.

Higher oil prices have already pressured the rupee INR=, near a record low last week and Asia’s worst performer.

“Rising oil prices can weigh on the consumer demand and lead to higher borrowing costs for the government,” Arora of HDFC Bank said.

The government’s Economic Survey, issued in January, estimated that every $10 per barrel rise in global oil prices cuts growth by 0.2-0.3 percentage points.

Still, some analysts expect India’s economy to grow more than 7 percent in 2018/19, helped by a normal monsoon and a pick-up in private investment.

The International Monetary Fund expects economic growth could reach 7.4 percent in 2018/19.

An Indian Finance Ministry official told CNBC on Monday that estimated growth in the last fiscal year, which ended on March 31, was 6.7 percent, below 2016/17’s pace of 7.1 percent.

Khawaja on spin trial for Australia A tour of India

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Khawaja on spin trial for Australia A tour of India

2:36 AM ET

Usman Khawaja‘s long-running battle to improve his methods against spin bowling may well reach a crucible on the Australia A tour of India in August and September, where he will be the most experienced member of a touring party chosen with an eye on the Test series against Pakistan in the UAE that follows.

Struggles against spin bowling have caused the national selectors to drop Khawaja in the recent past, most notably when he was not picked for any of the four Tests in India in 2017 and then dropped again after one match in Bangladesh where he was twice dismissed cheaply. In between times, Khawaja has been an outstanding No. 3 batsman for Australia on home soil.

While other Test batting candidates such as Glenn Maxwell and Joe Burns are believed to have been left out of the Australia A squad because the selectors did not think they needed to learn anymore about them in Asian conditions, Khawaja’s inclusion strongly suggests the panel – now featuring the new coach Justin Langer – are seeking signs of progress and improvement before they commit to playing him against Pakistan.

“We’re really pleased with the squads we have assembled for this tour,” the selection chairman Trevor Hohns said. “We’ve got a couple of really experienced international cricketers, a large group who have had a taste of playing for Australia already, and some emerging players who have performed strongly and we believe have the potential to one day play for their country.

“It’s an extremely important tour, as we look for players who can adapt and find ways to excel in sub-continent conditions. With Australia’s series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates fast approaching, it’s a chance for some players to push for selection for that series, and for all players to gain experience in subcontinent conditions.”

Another notable choice for the tour is that of the indigenous fast bowler Brendan Doggett, who has turned plenty of heads with his sheer pace and wicket-taking capacity for Queensland. Given the current injuries to Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins, the selectors are eager to broaden their stable of super fast bowlers, with Doggett and Billy Stanlake the leading names. Another Bull, Marnus Labuschagne, has gained his first representative call-up after strong recent displays in the domestic limited-overs competition.

“Marnus and Brendan both came through the National Performance Squad program last year, and performed strongly for Queensland last summer,” Hohns said. “Brendan is an exciting fast bowler with genuine pace, who has impressed with his wicket-taking ability in the Sheffield Shield. Marnus has put together some really good performances with the bat over the past 12 months, particularly at one-day level.”

Given the bans being served by Steven Smith and David Warner, the next generation of leaders in Australian cricket is also starting to emerge. South Australia’s captain Travis Head leads the limited overs squad, while Western Australia’s skipper Mitchell Marsh is in charge of the long-form team. The wicketkeeper and former Greater Western Sydney football club captain Alex Carey serves as deputy in both formats.

“We’re looking for leaders for future Australian teams, and Travis, Mitch and Alex are all very impressive young men,” Hohns said. “Travis and Mitch both have captaincy experience at state level, and this is an exciting opportunity for them to lead a new group of players in different conditions. Alex, as our Twenty20 vice-captain in the UK and Zimbabwe, is also someone we rate very highly as a leader, and this is another opportunity for him to develop those skills.”

No Warning: Witnesses describe how police shot and killed smelter protesters in Thoothukudi

THOOTHUKUDI, India (Reuters) – Police in the port city of Thoothukudi in Tamil Nadu gave no warning last Tuesday before firing with live ammunition on protesters seeking the closure of a copper smelter owned by London-listed Vedanta Resources Plc, according to 16 witnesses interviewed by Reuters.

The police also appear to have ignored Indian police rules on the use of force to quell protests by, in some cases, firing at the heads of protesters rather than their legs. Friends and relatives of two people who died said they had been shot in the face.

Warning protesters before firing is stipulated in the current federal manual for crowd control, and it is also outlined in Section 129 of India’s criminal procedure code, according to a home ministry official in New Delhi, who declined to be identified. “It is mandatory,” the official stressed.

Vappala Balachandran, a former deputy police commissioner in Mumbai, added that the manual gives detailed instructions about how force should be used. “First baton charge, then tear gas and when everything fails, firing. The constables have to squat on the ground placing one knee on the floor, take aim on the legs to incapacitate the rioters and fire,” he said.

Ten people were killed on the day of the shootings, and a further three have died since, making this one of the most deadly environmental protests in India since at least 14 were killed by the police in Nandigram in West Bengal in 2007 in a demonstration against plans for a chemicals hub.

Several state and district officials declined to comment on what happened that day, citing a pending investigation. Sandeep Nanduri, who was installed as the new district chief for Thoothukudi after the protest, told Reuters the sequence of events leading up to the firing has not yet been established.

India’s home ministry has asked the Tamil Nadu government to submit a report on the police firing, a ministry spokesman said. He said the ministry wouldn’t say anything else at this stage.

India’s government funded National Human Rights Commission said on Tuesday it will send a team of investigators to Thoothukudi to carry out its own probe.

Vedanta’s Sterlite Copper smelter is one of only two major copper smelters in India and it had announced plans to double its capacity. The Tamil Nadu state government ordered that the plant be shut permanently on environmental grounds on Monday, and officials physically sealed the smelter, saying it was listening to residents’ complaints.

Vedanta, in which Indian-born resources magnate Anil Agarwal has a controlling stake, has been accused by local residents and environmentalists of polluting the city’s air and ground water. The state pollution control board in April rejected the company’s request to renew its license to operate, saying it had not complied with environmental laws on five counts.

The company has denied it is in breach of any environmental laws. Agarwal in a video on Twitter last Thursday expressed sadness about the protesters’ deaths, saying “it was absolutely unfortunate” and his full sympathy is with the families of those killed. He said he is committed to the local community and the environment, and to abiding by the law.

In response to the state shuttering the plant, Vedanta said on Monday that it will study the order and decide on its next course of action.

STORMED GOVERNMENT OFFICES

On May 22, the protest quickly got unruly and out of police control as the demonstrators reached the district offices.

The protesters had been given permission to rally in a playground in the city but not to gather outside the district government offices, police said.

The playground could hold only 2,000 and the protesters said numbers swelled to at least 50,000 on the 100th day of their campaign against the smelter – a campaign that began when the company announced plans for the expansion.

Police and protesters threw stones at each other, seven witnesses said, and protesters stormed the offices and threatened to get into an apartment building where Vedanta employees live, police and a Vedanta official added.

Four police officials and two people working at the district headquarters said police fired only after protesters threw stones at the office building.

Most of the 16 witnesses said police moved straight from using tear gas and sticks to live ammunition to try to control protesters. Police and other officials haven’t challenged this.

Reuters was unable to determine what or who prompted the police to fire on protesters, why live ammunition and not rubber bullets was deployed, and why some people were shot in the head.

One police officer speaking on condition of anonymity said police had to act to restore order. “Do you expect us to take it lying down and die in a riot situation? Of course we will hit back,” he said.

Initially, local police and state officials defended the use of live ammunition. The state’s chief minister, Edappadi K. Palaniswami, told reporters on the day of the protest that the police had been forced to act after it turned violent. And on the same day, state Fisheries Minister D. Jayakumar said it had been “unavoidable” for police to fire on protesters.

In the past few days, though, Tamil Nadu state officials have declined to respond to detailed questions posed by Reuters about the police actions on that day, including deputy chief minister O. Paneerselvam during and after a news conference on Monday.

FIRED FROM TERRACE

Six of the witnesses – a mixture of protesters and bystanders – said in separate conversations that they saw gunmen shooting from behind trees. Two other witnesses said they saw a man shooting down on the crowd from the terrace of the district authority offices.

Some of the gunmen, who carried pistols and rifles, were in police uniform, while others were in plainclothes, the witnesses said.

One man, who said he lost a relative in the shootings, described seeing someone firing from the top of a van. “They were shooting from the top of a van, police were not even wearing uniforms and they gave no warning,” said the 43-year-old man who gave his name as Gopal but was afraid to give his full name, citing fear of the authorities.

Television channels have also shown a man, armed with an assault rifle, lying on the roof of a police bus in a marksman’s position.

“They started shooting at us without any warning. They came with an intent to kill as if we were terrorists,” said 47-year old K. Selvam, a labourer who joined the protest and was shot in the leg.

None of the witnesses said the police used loudspeakers or other methods to give directions to the protesters. Such warnings are typical when police engage in crowd control in India.

The public uproar that has resulted from the killings last Tuesday prompted the state government of Tamil Nadu to replace both Thoothukudi’s police superintendent and the district’s top administrative official. It provided no reason for the removals.

The officials who had been replaced did not answer repeated calls seeking comment.

The closure of the smelter means India will have to get more copper from overseas, said Goutam Chakraborty, a securities analyst with Indian broker Emkay Global, boosting its import bill. The metal is essential for a country developing rapidly as it is used in everything from housing to autos.

HORRIFIC INJURIES

Among those who died on Tuesday was a 17-year-old girl, J. Snowlin, who was shot in her face, according to her mother J. Vanitha. She died while trying to flee from the firing at the district offices, according to her mother and a school friend who was with her during the protest.

A 43-year old fisherman said his friend Tamilarasan was mowed down in what appeared to be “blind shooting” by the police.

“He was standing behind me, I heard a shot and I turned around, he had dropped to the ground. He had been shot in his face” the fisherman said. He requested anonymity, citing fear of retribution by the police. The state government confirmed to Reuters that a man called Tamilarasan, aged 42, died in Tuesday’s violence.

It is still unclear how many died from gunshot wounds, or where they died. Some people were beaten with sticks and iron rods and may have died as a result.

Officials said the cause of death for the 13 would be known only after autopsies were completed. Not everyone died around the district offices – there were reports of deaths in at least two other parts of the city. Doctors at the city’s main hospital, Thoothukudi Medical College, said they dealt with some horrific injuries that day.

There were people shot in the head, in the groin, and in the legs. People with broken spines, fractured arms and limbs and ribcage damage were also being treated in the hospital.

Altogether there at least 102 injured in addition to the dead, with 19 of them in critical condition, the state government said.

Phil Jaques commissioned to restore NSW

1:59 AM ET

Repair work on a damaging breakdown in the largest component of Australian cricket’s talent conveyor belt is now the responsibility of Phil Jaques, after the former Test opener was unveiled as the new coach of New South Wales on a three-year deal.

Jaques was left as the only candidate for the role after his former Australia team-mate Brad Haddin withdrew from the running late last week, with the imminent commencement of the national team’s limited-overs tour of England and Zimbabwe believed to be a contributing factor to his decision. Haddin is contracted with the national side as an assistant coach until the end of next year’s Ashes tour.

Having previously served as the head coach of Queensland, Jaques moved back to Sydney last year for family reasons and served as an assistant to Trent Johnston as the NSW Blues endured a season of underwhelming results. NSW, Australia’s most populous state, has not reached a Sheffield Shield final since 2014, compelling the state’s performance manager David Moore and chief executive Andrew Jones to part ways with Johnston at the end of the summer.

“As a former Blues player I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to coach NSW as part of a new era,” Jaques said. “We have a number of exceptional young cricketers, many of whom have recently represented the Australian Under-19s, and I look forward to working with them so they can reach their full potential.

“Equally we have a senior group of players, many with international experience, who can play a big part in not only our performances on the field but also moulding this squad for future success. Patience is required as young players develop, but this is an exciting time at Cricket NSW as we look to enhance the culture of improvement and learning, and continue to be the leading provider of talent for Australian cricket.”

There are major concerns across Australian cricket about the fact that the generation beyond Steven Smith, David Warner, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon and Pat Cummins have not progressed as desired. This problem is epitomised by the decision to discard the talented but wayward Nic Maddinson from the state-contract list, with the left-hander now seeking a fresh start in Victoria.

“2017-18 was a difficult year for the Blues and we have refreshed the list accordingly. We are very deliberately bringing through a younger group of players and are not looking for a quick fix,” chief executive Jones said. “Instead from Board level down we are looking to build a culture of growth and excellence, which will lead to sustained success. We want all our players to achieve their potential in the game, and if they do we will continue to win titles and produce players for Australia.”

Performance manager Moore pointed to Jaques’ playing record as evidence he would be the right man for the job. “We are delighted one of our own has been successful,” he said. “Anyone who scores three centuries and six half-centuries in 11 Tests and makes more than 16,000 first-class runs at an average of better than 48 is obviously a quality player of vast experience.

assistant coach of the Blues. He then gained head coaching experience in Queensland where he did an excellent job of developing and improving young players, and helped lay the platform for the Bulls’ Sheffield Shield success last season.

“After returning to the Blues in 2017-18, Phil is aware of where we need to improve and hungry to lead that change.”

Jaques was among the collection of state and national team coaches assembled at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane last week for a series of frank seminars and discussions about the direction of the game and the way players are being coached, whether it be in terms of their technique, mentality or fitness.

Among other roles, Adam Voges appears set to take up the post of Western Australia and Perth Scorchers coach, replacing Justin Langer after he was chosen to replace Darren Lehmann as the mentor national team. Voges was a key ally of Langer as captain of the Warriors from 2012 to 2016 and also the Scorchers until the end of last season, before dabbling in commentary work.

India says it only follows U.N. sanctions, not U.S. sanctions on Iran

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India said on Monday it abided by sanctions imposed by the United Nations but not those imposed by any other country, such as those announced by the United States against Iran.

U.S. President Donald Trump this month withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal and ordered the reimposition of U.S. sanctions suspended under the 2015 accord.

Indian foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said New Delhi’s position was independent of any other country.

“India follows only U.N. sanctions, and not unilateral sanctions by any country,” she said at a news conference.

India and Iran have long-standing political and economic ties, with Iran one of India’s top oil suppliers.

Swaraj on Monday met Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, in New Delhi to build support against the U.S. rejection of the nuclear accord.

“Zarif briefed about the discussions that Iran has undertaken with parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action following the U.S. decision to withdraw from the Agreement,” said an Indian government statement, without elaborating.

India continued trade with Iran during previous sanctions but had to cut oil imports as the sanctions choked off banking channels and insurance cover for tankers.

Alibaba Security Researcher Can Now Jailbreak iOS 11.3 With Cydia

Jailbreak iOS 11.3 With Cydia

Min Zheng, a Chinese hacker and security researcher, has successfully the ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3 by installing Cydia.

Zheng had previously demonstrated an ability to get root shell access on the platform, but a recent tweet from the security research demonstrates that he was able to achieve read and write access in order to jailbreak iOS 11.3 and install Cydia.

Unfortunately for those in the community looking to jailbreak iOS 11.3, Zheng is fully cooperating with Apple when it comes to patching out the problems. As a security researcher for Alibaba, his interest is more in testing and increasing security rather than blowing operating systems wide open and allowing people to jailbreak iOS 11.3 at will.

However, one thing to keep in mind is that it’s now confirmed possible to install Cydia – it’s just a matter of the jailbreaking community reaching the solution on their own rather than with the assistance of Zheng. Any fixes from Apple will come in a patch, and if they choose not to install that patch they can work on the ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3.

The tweet, included below, comes with the words “This time. It’s a real JB now,” confirming that Zheng was able to bypass some of the problems the community was having previously and actually install Cydia on the device. As you can see in the tweet, two screenshots show Cydia running on the iPhone home screen as well as a picture with root shell access showing the existence of Cydia.app in the /Applications folder.

It’s exciting to see that the ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3 is there, but it’s important to keep expectations in check. Min Zheng is a security professional that was able to install Cydia using complex methods that used a lot of work in the command line – a process that isn’t exactly feasible for the average device owner.

While jailbreak developers may be able to streamline the process moving forward, the fact that Zheng is cooperating with Apple rather than with the jailbreaking community is certainly going to make the process take longer and it will make it more difficult moving forward into new builds of the operating system.

There’s a possibility that Zheng will eventually make his work public, but given his previous statements and his current cooperation with Apple it’s extremely unlikely that his specific command line work will ever come to light. The ability to jailbreak iOS 11.3 will have to come from the community themselves.

As far as the next public jailbreak goes, we expect to see one for iOS 11.2.6 before people are able to jailbreak iOS 11.3. The iOS 11.3 fix should follow shortly thereafter, but only if Ian Beer’s exploit is able to be turned into a usable jailbreak.

Unfortunately, Apple has already closed the iOS 11.3 signing window, meaning that it will be basically impossible for people to downgrade moving forward. If you haven’t yet upgraded and are looking to jailbreak iOS 11.3, make sure you don’t accidentally move to the latest operating system. As Zheng cooperates with Apple, it may be more difficult to move forward than we think.

‘CSK handled moments of pressure better’

Sunrisers Hyderabad topped the league stage, but lost all four games against Chennai Super Kings this season. Captain Kane Williamson lauded the way CSK handled the most high-pressure match of the lot, the final, not giving Sunrisers any opportunities while chasing what he thought was a “competitive total”.

In pursuit of 179, CSK lost only two wickets and ensured Sunrisers’ most dangerous bowlers – Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Rashid Khan – went wicketless.

“That is the nature of that – sometimes you do have to applaud very good cricket and that was CSK in terms of their batting today,” Williamson said. “It was outstanding, they didn’t give us opportunities, they hit it over the fence rather than to our man. Look, it is such a fine line, I know out there on the park it’s an eight-wicket win but we all saw that there were moments of pressure where the game can change very quickly, and if you’re able to pounce on those then that’s when you take your opportunity. And today, you do credit the way CSK handled those moments of pressure and carried on with their batting performance.”

Apart from Shane Watson‘s unbeaten 117, Williamson had words of praise for his bowlers too. After Bhuvneshwar started with a maiden over against Watson, Sunrisers restricted CSK to only 35 for 1 in the Powerplay before they took on Siddarth Kaul and Sandeep Sharma.

“At the halfway stage on the surface, we thought we had a very competitive total,” Williamson said. “It wasn’t perhaps your usual surface at the Wankhede and it held a little bit and was responsive to the slower ball. So we thought that 180-mark was a really good target and you saw that from our first overs, it wasn’t very easy to get away. I think from that point onwards, that innings of Shane Watson… anyone who turns out with an innings of 100-plus in the final, it was obviously a significant effort and great contribution to their side and very difficult to stop, so a fantastic knock.

“I believe after the first few overs, the [required] run rate was climbing, there were risks required and if we were able to pick up a couple of wickets, which we have been doing throughout the season, then all of a sudden it takes a very different shape. Credit to the way CSK played, they showed their experience and got through that period and took the game away from us.”

When asked if the bowling of their domestic quicks, apart from Bhuvneshwar, cost them the game, Williamson said: “I’d rather look at the likes of Watson in terms of his innings. He did put us under pressure. You come into a final and that is one of the things you do need to deal with the best you can – pressure. Everybody’s feeling it a little bit and he responded to it beautifully and put us under more pressure. Once again, the way we started with the ball was outstanding, gave us an opportunity. There was a balancing point there which they ran away with.

“We look at a variety of surfaces that we played on [early in the season] and I think that was huge in how our bowlers operated, and then we came on to some other surfaces, perhaps a little bit better [for batting], and we were trying to adjust as best as we could.

“That’s the nature of T20 cricket, it’s very aggressive, you play looking to get on top of bowlers and at times that can happen to anyone, it’s just one of those things. But he [Kaul] has been a fantastic asset for our side throughout this whole campaign. His death bowling is of the highest quality and he’s got a fantastic slower ball as well. The likes of him and the other boys that were in our attack were brilliant throughout the whole campaign.”

Williamson can indeed be proud of his bowling attack, from which two bowlers – Rashid and Kaul, with 21 wickets each – finished behind the tournament’s top wicket-taker Andrew Tye (24). Sandeep and Bhuvneshwar didn’t play all their matches but were frugal, finishing the tournament with economy rates of 7.56 and 7.66 respectively.

PM Modi opens two expressways around Delhi to reduce pollution

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday he expected around a 30 percent drop in the number of vehicles entering Delhi, as he opened two new expressways around the capital aimed at decongesting its streets and reducing deadly pollution.

A damning report by the World Health Organisation this month said India was home to the world’s 14 most polluted cities, with Delhi ranked sixth most polluted. Air quality has worsened over recent winters, prompting Modi’s office to directly monitor measures to clean up the capital’s air.

“The expressways will greatly benefit the people of Delhi National Capital Region (NCR) by reducing pollution and will bring down traffic jams,” Modi said.

The NCR is a rapidly urbanising and polluted area around New Delhi that is one-third the size of New York state, but houses 2.5 times more people.

Illegal crop burning in farm states surrounding New Delhi, vehicle exhausts and swirling construction dust have contributed to what has become an annual crisis.

The 135-kilometre (84-mile), six-lane Eastern Peripheral Expressway was built in 17 months at a total cost of around 110 billion rupees ($1.62 billion), the government said.

More than 50,000 vehicles that transit the capital city on their way to other destinations would no longer need to enter New Delhi, Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari told reporters on Saturday.

It offers signal-free connectivity and is the first green highway fully lit by solar power, has drip pumps for watering plants alongside the highway and has rain water harvesting.

Modi also opened an initial stretch of an 82 km Delhi-Meerut highway, which is India’s first 14-lane.

Modi’s administration is marking its fourth year in office this weekend and has vowed to speed up infrastructure development as it heads into a national election in 2019.
