Indian growth rate drops behind China to lowest in more than four years

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – India’s economy grew at its slowest pace in more than four years in the January-March period, falling behind China’s pace for the first time in nearly two years and raising the prospect of fiscal stimulus and a rate cut.

Asia’s third largest economy grew at a much slower-than-expected 5.8% in the last quarter, compared with 6.4% in China, government data showed on Friday. The figures were released as Prime Minister Narendra Modi started his second term.

A Reuters poll of economists had forecast a growth rate of 6.3 percent for the March quarter, compared with a 6.6% rise in the October-December period in 2018.

Devendra Kumar Pant, chief economist at India Ratings Research in New Delhi, said there were signs of a further slowdown in the economy.

“The government has a very limited fiscal space. However, current economic conditions call for some stimulus,” he said.

India’s Finance Secretary, Subhash Chandra Garg, said the economy could grow “relatively slower” this quarter but would start turning around from the July-September quarter with favourable interest rates and an improvement in liquidity.

He said the last quarter was hurt by weak consumption demand and tepid private investment. Finance ministry sources say Nirmala Sitharaman, the country’s new finance minister, could cut taxes in her first full-year budget on July 5 to boost demand.

The Reserve Bank of India is also expected to reduce interest rates at its June 4-6 policy meeting.

On Friday, the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation cut its growth estimate for the fiscal year that ended on March 31 to 6.8%, the lowest in five years, from a previously projected 7%.

Separate data released the same day showed India’s unemployment rate rose to 6.1% in the 2017/18 fiscal year, matching data earlier leaked to a newspaper that said it was the highest level in at least 45 years.

WEAKENING DEMAND

Several indicators – automobile sales, rail freight, petroleum product consumption, domestic air traffic and imports – indicate a slowdown in domestic consumption.

Private investment in India grew 7.2% in the March quarter, down from 8.4 percent in the previous quarter. Capital investment growth slowed to 3.6 percent from 10.6%, government data showed.

Government spending, however, rose 13.1% in the March quarter from 6.5% ahead of the April-May elections, widening the fiscal deficit in the last financial year.

The farm sector contracted 0.1% in the March quarter compared with 2.7% growth in the previous quarter, while manufacturing grew 3.1%, slower than 6.7% in the previous quarter.

Corporate earnings grew at a six-quarter low of 10.7% during January-March period on weakening consumer sentiment and softening commodity prices, ICRA, the Indian arm of the ratings agency Moody’s, said on Tuesday, citing a sample of more than 300 companies.

Nevertheless, many economists and officials expect the government to push long-pending reforms starting in the next parliamentary session beginning on June 17, after its landslide election victory.

“Big-bang” economic programmes in the first 100 days of Modi’s second term could focus on privatisation of state assets and relaxation of labour and land rules for businesses, a top official at the government’s main think-tank told Reuters.

Devi 2 Story: A doting wife goes through a hard time trying to save her husband who is possessed by two spirits

Devi 2 Review: Many films in the recent past which were billed as ‘horror-comedy’ were devoid of both the elements – Vijay’s Devi 2 is the latest to join the bandwagon. The first part which had Tamannaah and Prabhu Deva in good form is wasted here, thanks to mediocre writing. Contrary to the prequel, Devi 2 has Krishna (Prabhu Deva) possessed by two spirits, while his wife Devi (Tamannaah) has a tough time dealing with it with the help of a friend (Kovai Sarala). How Devi resorts to various ways to save her husband and their family life is narrated in a dull manner. The story, this time, is set in the backdrop of Mauritius for an unconvincing reason and many scenes appear staged and unreal.

The parallel tracks involving Nandita and Dimple do not leave any impact and the mash-up of scenes from other films in a crucial scene shows dearth of originality. Sonu Sood and RJ Balaji make brief and ineffective appearances, and Kovai Sarala does what she does in most of the films. The songs do not add any value to the film, and the conflicts and antagonists are poorly written. A half-baked story with a decent star cast with good potential is let down due to lack of interest which is evident throughout. Overall, Devi 2 joins the long list of unimpressive sequels in Kollywood.

iPhone, iPad Jailbreak Updates: Latest Unc0ver, Chimera Versions Fail To Unlock iOS 12.2

In recent days, two active jailbreak teams have issued welcome updates on their respective iPhone and iPad unlocking tools. The solutions, however, remain limited in scope and specifically will not work on Apple-made devices running on iOS versions 12.2 and 12.3. At least for the last two, a fully working jailbreak is still up in the air.

However, jailbreak fans are appreciative of what the various dev groups currently offer. This is especially true in the case of unc0ver team, which has provided the latest tool to liberate iPhones and iPads on iOS versions 11.0 up to 12.1.2. It might be that the release stopped short of prying open version 12.2, but as the team had advertised: “This update significantly improves the stability and the performance of the entire system, fixes issues in the jailbreak app makes it more user-friendly.”

Furthermore, the hacking group reminded that when compared to version 3.0.1, unc0ver 3.1 can be better relied upon, having improved stability in terms of overall performance. “It adds support for switching from other iOS 12 jailbreaks without losing data,” the devs, led by @Pwn20wnd, was reported as saying.

Not to be outdone, the Electra Team unleashed a step up from Chimera 1.0.6 to version 1.0.7. The solution is sure to jailbreak iOS 12.0 to version 12.1.2 and was designed primarily to speed up the jailbreaking process.

According to the test conducted by iDownloadBlog.com, the time to achieve jailbreak has been cut down from 12 seconds to just four seconds with Chimera 1.0.7 in use. But it should be noted that the demonstrated jailbreak speed will not apply on all iPhones and iPads.

The process will be considerably slower when applied in older iOS devices, the report stated, adding that jumping to the latest Chimera build is not necessary for everyone since the latest offering does not include important bugs fixes.

Now it is obvious that any of the two jailbreaking tools do not go beyond iOS 12.1.2 though unc0ver has a bit of an advantage for covering iOS 11.0. This indicates of limited jailbreaking space at the moment but the situation is likely to improve soon.

If security researcher Dany Lisiansky is to be believed, iOS 12 in all releases always contain vulnerabilities that independent developers can take advantage of.  Lisiansky has identified exploits in iOS 12.2 that Apple eventually patched but are certain openings that could pave the way in the creation of jailbreak solutions.

The researcher maintained what while the release of iOS 12.3 resolved these vulnerabilities, the mobile OS will still have the weak spots that devs can dig into in search of possible jailbreak backdoors. In effect, Lisiansky is suggesting that the door remains ajar for a jailbreak, and if not for iOS 12.2 then likely for version 12.3 or the upcoming iOS releases from Apple.

‘England was better than us in all three facets of the game’

5:42 PM ET

It wasn’t quite the chronicle of a defeat foretold but South Africa talked this game down so much in the run-up, it did feel, long before the actual end, inevitable. One of the messages that kept coming out through to game day was that the format of this tournament affords them an early loss or two. The opening game was important, but far from decisive.

If it is at least out of the way now, there is slightly less margin for error than before. And this World Cup moves – less than a week from today they’ll be playing their third game, against India who will be playing their first.

“Yeah, this is where it’s important for us to make sure that you look at the World Cup for what it is,” Faf du Plessis said after a 104-run defeat.

“You know, you’re going to play games. You’re going to come up against quality opposition. Today England was better than us in all three facets of the game. They show why they are such a good cricket team, and now we have to look at the league. It’s a league competition.

“As disappointed as we are with our performances today, you have to make sure you learn from it quickly and put every single dart to bed because there is a next game and you have to make sure you play good cricket again.”

In many ways the result revealed more about England’s credentials for the challenge ahead rather than South Africa’s. It was England who had to overcome a slow pitch and show that there is another side to their game.

Given England’s batting, South Africa could have considered restricting them to 311 a job well done, especially with an attack built on three specialists and a couple of allrounders and part-timers. In particular, conceding just 76 in the last 10 was a mini-triumph, more so for Lungi Ngidi who overcame a nervy start to pick up three cheap wickets at the death.

“Yeah, I thought after the first half, that we did a good job with the ball,” du Plessis said. “You know, as I said before this game, England more so than any other team in this World Cup, bat longer than anyone else. So if you can stop them with the long batting line-up you have, then you’re doing a great job with the ball.

“For them to score as little runs as they did the last 15 overs and us picking up as many wickets as we did, was a great achievement by our both units. But yeah, as I said, 310 is still a big score, so what you need to do you is need to start well, and we didn’t have that luxury today.”

The chase was on until the moment Hashim Amla went off, having been pinged by a Jofra Archer bouncer. That disrupted the start but it also reaffirmed perhaps how much South Africa’s batting will depend Quinton de Kock, Amla and du Plessis himself (though Rassie van der Dussen must feel like a welcome addition).

“When you are chasing a big score like 310 what you need is a good start,” du Plessis said. “You need to make sure that you settle the bats in the dressing room with a good partnership, whether it’s zero down or one down, but a good start is really important and obviously with him [Amla] coming off, and then a few overs later, Aiden got out and then one or two overs later, I got out. When you go three-down on a big score like that, you’re making it really tough for our batting unit to perform. And then the score just looks big. It looks too far.”

Russia calls U.S. nuclear accusation ‘smear’

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russia rebuffed as a baseless smear on Thursday a U.S. allegation that Moscow may be conducting low-level nuclear tests in violation of a moratorium.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Russia was in full compliance with the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), which Moscow ratified in 2000.

It called for the United States itself to ratify the treaty.

The head of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) said on Wednesday that Russia was probably not adhering to its nuclear testing moratorium in line with the “zero-yield” limit set by the CTBT.

“Such accusations are absolutely groundless and aimed at trying again to smear our country,” the ministry statement said.

Negotiated in the 1990s, the CTBT enjoys wide global support but must be ratified by eight more nuclear technology states – among them Israel, Iran, Egypt and the United States – to come into force.

“We again call on the United States to show a responsible approach and to ratify the CTBT, without which its entry into force is not possible,” Russia’s statement said.

England’s gung-ho v India’s pragmatism: A tale of two different batting approaches

2:37 PM ET

This is the first World Cup where people walking into the stadiums will have scorecards – in which you tick off runs scored – running up to 500. Teams have invested in batting depth to give their main batsmen the freedom to try to turn ODI innings into 50-over T20s. Fielding restrictions have never amounted to less. Middle overs have never been busier. Totals have never been more unsafe. Those looking for balance between bat and ball are dreading going to Taunton and Nottingham. There is one team, though, that is not getting carried away.

At least twice in the lead-up to this World Cup, India have publicly spoken about the importance of old-fashioned cricket with the bat. These are telling statements by India’s captain and batting coach.

Who will win the World Cup? Play Cricket Picks and win big

“What makes the Indian team unique is that it’s consistently playing risk-free cricket,” Sanjay Bangar told Mumbai Mirror before departing for the UK. “And that’s because we emphasise on the ones and the twos. As a batting group, we are not obsessed over the number of boundaries we’ve hit. But we discuss strike-rotation a great deal. Which is why we’re able to eschew risks.”

ALSO READ: ‘Not obsessed with the number of boundaries we hit’ – Bangar

Inherent to this batting ethos is appreciation that ODIs haven’t yet become longer T20s. They find backing for that in data. Since the last World Cup, 54.22% of the runs in T20s (internationals and the big leagues) have been scored in boundaries. In ODIs, the number drops down to 45.5%. What’s more the contribution of boundaries to a team total in ODIs has stayed pretty much similar for a while. Between the 2011 and 2015 world Cups, 46% of runs came through boundaries.

General wisdom suggests that sides scoring more runs through boundaries end up winning T20 matches. This is where you will see the value of boundaries rising, though. Since the last World Cup, 79.29% of T20 matches have been won by sides that have scored more runs in boundaries. The number in ODIs is marginally higher, at 79.62%. And it is a jump from the 74.5 mark it straddled for the last eight years.

India might not obsess about boundaries, but they do end up hitting them organically. In the period leading up to this World Cup, they have scored fewer boundary runs than their opposition in only 32 of the 86 matches they have played. The number for England is 29 in 88. They have won only 10 each of these matches. It is clear: whether you obsess over them or not, the role of boundaries is becoming increasingly important even in ODI cricket, especially in high-scoring venues in England.

If India and England score more boundary runs than their opposition, they win nine times out of 10. For Australia that number goes out to 7.5. It shows they are not able to complement the boundaries with other runs in the middle overs. India and England remain the two pre-eminent batting sides in the world, but their methods are completely different. England, on the other hand, are blessed with the coming together of wonderfully attacking batsmen who still score at a high average. Because there are so many of them – they have a possible five to eight of Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes – they can afford to keep going and start sooner than most.

Rate the 50 highest run-getters in ODIs since the last World Cup by their strike rate in the first 20 balls they face, and India’s first representation is at No. 14: Shikhar Dhawan. Virat Kohli is at No. 20. Indian batsmen who are quick off the blocks – Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya – haven’t played enough matches to be able to make this list, but they will be there at the World Cup. Each of the top six in England’s first XI is in the top 20.

And yet the top two run-getters in ODIs since the last World Cup are Indians: Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Dhawan is at No. 9. These three bat long enough and accelerate enough to make up for their slow starts. Batting approach should only be judged when teams are batting first because when they are chasing they bat according to the target. It is in judging and then getting to a par score that these two sides are different.

England race off the blocks; India take time. England’s average 10-overs score batting first is 55 for 1, India’s 44 for 1. India then tend to make up ground in overs 10 to 30, but here is a number: at the 30-over mark, India have gone at better than a run a ball only once in 11 innings; England do that once every four digs. They again take lead in overs 30 to 40 while the finishing kick tends to be similar.

There is a flipside to so much intent. Batting first, since the last World Cup, England have been bowled out once every three efforts. India have been dismissed only once every six matches. This is where India want pragmatism. They don’t want to be over ambitious. With their uncertain middle and lower order and not much sting in their tail, they risk losing the game in the first 25 overs if they go too hard. Yet, within themselves they have started to change things up since the Champions Trophy where they lost to Sri Lanka despite score 300.

There has been a clear change in intent in the middle overs and especially between overs 30 and 40, just before the extra fielder is about to go out of the 30-yard ring. The last-10 overs numbers have come down, but they will hope the return of Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav will address that concern.

Most importantly, though, neither side is obsessed: neither India with individual centuries and hence slow starts nor England with bringing up the first 500. It is their assessment of what a par total is. India believe they have reason to not aim too high because of their bowling attack. England think they need to aim higher because they don’t have the out-and-out wicket-takers. In the middle overs, defending a total, India take a wicket every 37 balls against England’s 41, concede 5.39 an over to England’s 5.89, and have superior death bowlers to boot.

India tend to go with least premeditation about what a par score should be, and are thus able to adjust their game should the pitch not be a pancake. England risk getting bowled out on slightly different surfaces – although underestimate their Plan B at your own peril – but on flatter pitches they do tend to end up with a score that wins them the match.

It is a fascinating coming together of two different extremes of batting approaches; all other teams fall somewhere in between. India have already thrown in the added mind games. Sitting next to other captains in the pre-tournament press conference, Kohli didn’t want to leave any doubts as to whom he was talking about when he said: “They seem to be obsessed with getting to 500 before anyone else. They smash it from ball one and for the full 50 overs. It could be pretty high-scoring, but 260/270 is going to be as difficult to get as chasing 370, 380 in a World Cup.

“I don’t see too much high-scoring in the later half of the tournament. Some teams might get on a roll, but you’ll see 250 defended as well as because of the kind of pressure that comes with it. When you get closer to the knockout phases, that is going to bring greater pressure and no one is going to go gung-ho from ball one. Generally teams will find a way, but I see pressure playing a massive role.”

U.S. Special Counsel Mueller says charging Trump was ‘not an option’

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller said on Wednesday his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election was never going to end with criminal charges against President Donald Trump and that he would give no more information than was already published in his report.

In his first public comments since starting the investigation in May 2017, Mueller said Justice Department policy explicitly prevented him from bringing charges against a sitting president.

“Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider,” Mueller told reporters as he announced his resignation from the Justice Department.

A redacted version of Mueller’s report was published in April, concluding that Russia repeatedly interfered in the 2016 election and that Trump’s election campaign had multiple contacts with Russian officials but did not engage in a criminal conspiracy with Moscow to win the White House.

Mueller’s report also declined to make a judgment on whether Trump obstructed justice, although the report outlined 10 instances in which Trump tried to impede the investigation.

“If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime,” Mueller said.

He said the 448-page report spoke for itself.

“Beyond what I’ve said here today and what is contained in our written work, I do not believe it is appropriate for me to speak further,” Mueller said in a brief press appearance at the Justice Department’s headquarters.

He did not take questions.

Trump, who has repeatedly denounced Mueller’s probe as a witch hunt, said the matter was settled.

“Nothing changes from the Mueller Report,” he said on Twitter. “There was insufficient evidence and therefore, in our Country, a person is innocent. The case is closed! Thank you.”

Since the report’s release, Democrats have debated whether to bring impeachment charges against Trump or simply continue their multiple investigations into his administration and his private business.

“Given that Special Counsel Mueller was unable to pursue criminal charges against the President, it falls to Congress to respond to the crimes, lies and other wrongdoing of President Trump – and we will do so,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler.

Representative Justin Amash, the only Republican to have said publicly that Trump has committed impeachable offenses, tweeted: “The ball is in our court, Congress.”

The investigation ensnared dozens of people, including several top Trump advisers and a series of Russian nationals and companies.

Among them are his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who is serving 7 1/2 years in prison for financial crimes and lobbying violations, and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who recently began a three-year sentence for campaign-finance violations and lying to Congress.

Since the report’s release, Democratic lawmakers have tried without success to get the full report and underlying evidence. The House Judiciary Committee also is negotiating for Mueller to testify at a hearing.

Trump has said Mueller should not testify before Congress but that the final decision was up to Attorney General William Barr. Democrats have denounced Barr, saying he misrepresented the special counsel’s findings.

Mueller appeared to have misgivings at one point as well, complaining to Barr in March that he had initially disclosed his main findings in an incomplete way that caused public confusion. In congressional testimony in April, Barr dismissed Mueller’s concerns as “a bit snitty.”

Barr now is leading a review of the origins of the Russia investigation in what is the third known inquiry into the FBI’s handling of the matter. Trump harbors suspicions that the Democratic administration of President Barack Obama started the investigation in 2016 to undermine his presidency.

In effect, Lisiansky is suggesting that the door remains ajar for a jailbreak, and if not for iOS 12.2 then likely for version 12.3 or the upcoming iOS releases from Apple.

Tom Helm, Dawid Malan fire to put Middlesex on top

Middlesex 221 and 195 for 2 (Malan 107*, Gubbins 72*) lead Worcestershire 156 (Ferguson 37, Helm 5-32) by 260 runs

Middlesex paceman Tom Helm returned career best figures before skipper Dawid Malan‘s 23rd first-class hundred established a position of strength for his side in the Specsavers County Championship encounter with Worcestershire at Blackfinch New Road.

Helm finished with 5 for 36 from 19 overs to earn Middlesex a first-innings lead of 65 as Worcestershire were dismissed for 156 in 63.5 overs shortly before tea. It surpassed the 25-year-old’s previous best of 5 for 59 against Warwickshire at Edgbaston two years ago, as he exploited a pitch of uneven bounce and received excellent support from veteran Tim Murtagh (17-9-25-2).

Then skipper Malan and Nick Gubbins cashed in during a marathon final session of 51 overs with an unbroken third-wicket partnership of 175.

Malan leg glanced Ed Barnard for four to reach three figures off 121 balls with 14 fours and he accelerated to such an extent that his second 50 came from just 44 deliveries. He ended the day unbeaten on 107 with Gubbins 72 not out as Middlesex closed on 195 for 2, an overall advantage of 260.

Conditions appeared to ease for batting during the second half of the day although Worcestershire, with the exception of skipper Joe Leach, were guilty of some undistinguished bowling.

In a rain shortened morning session Helm followed up his two wickets on Monday with another double breakthrough in the half hour’s play possible after Worcestershire had resumed on 64 for 3 in reply to Middlesex’s 221.

Opener Tom Fell had defied the visitors attack for 27 overs on the opening day but added only one to his overnight 18 before he pushed forward to Helm and was bowled. Helm dismissed nightwatchman Josh Tongue who fended off a delivery which bounced on him and Nathan Sowter held on to a low chance at second slip.

The players were driven off by a heavy shower and an early lunch was taken at 12.30pm with the total on 85 for 5.

When the action resumed Worcestershire lost two further wickets without any addition to the total. Riki Wessels pushed forward to Murtagh and was bowled and then Helm completed his five wicket haul when Ross Whiteley edged to Steve Eskinazi at second slip.

Ben Cox top edged James Harris for six to fine leg and Ed Barnard drove Murtagh for four. But the veteran Middlesex paceman’s next delivery jagged back and accounted for Barnard lbw and Cox was dismissed in the same fashion by Harris.

Resistance came from the last wicket Worcestershire pair of Leach and Charlie Morris. They added 40 in 16 overs before spinner Sowter trapped Morris lbw.

Leach took the new ball and made two quickfire breakthroughs as Max Holden and Sam Robson fell lbw in successive overs to leave Middlesex on 20 for 2. But Malan, in his first senior game since recovering from a groin injury suffered on England duty, and Gubbins ensured there were no further alarms for the visitors.

They scored at around four an over and were seldom troubled with Malan first to his half century off 77 balls with six fours. Gubbins reached his fifty shortly afterwards from 99 deliveries with seven boundaries.

Amazon, Walmart’s Flipkart unlikely to respond to key queries in India antitrust study: sources

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc and Walmart Inc’s Flipkart are unlikely to fully participate in an Indian antitrust body’s study of the e-commerce sector for fear of revealing trade secrets, two people with direct knowledge of the matter said.

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) is engaged in what it describes as a “fact-finding exercise” aimed at better understanding the e-commerce sector, showed a document distributed to several e-commerce firms and reviewed by Reuters.

The CCI document features 88 questions over 12 pages requesting recipients volunteer pricing strategies, product information and the identities of their biggest-selling vendors.

Amazon and Flipkart are among India’s largest e-commerce companies so their participation in any such survey could carry significant weight. Yet the pair are unlikely to answer questions in full as doing so would involve disclosing commercially sensitive information, the two people told Reuters.

“This survey is very detailed,” said one of the people, who declined to be identified as they were not authorised to speak publicly on the matter. “Companies are worried because these are competitive, confidential things which are business critical.”

Amazon, Flipkart and the CCI did not respond to Reuters requests for comment.

CCI’s study comes about four months after the government implemented new rules regulating foreign investment in e-commerce, including barring the sale of products on their platforms from vendors in which they have an equity interest.

The rules saw scores of products vanish from Amazon’s Indian website overnight, and shocked Walmart which just months earlier had bought the majority of Flipkart for $16 billion in the U.S. retailer’s biggest-ever acquisition.

U.S. officials and e-commerce companies have protested the rules, which were widely seen as aimed at winning the support of small traders ahead of a general election. The incumbent government won the election this month by a landslide.

To better understand the e-commerce sector, the CCI in its document asks companies basic details such as the number of employees, but asks online marketplace operators more sensitive questions such as how they charge vendors on their platforms.

It also asks questions regarding contractual agreements struck between e-commerce companies and vendors.

There is no indication of compulsory participation in the survey, with the CCI in the document saying it “does not form a part of any investigation and/or inquiry in any of the proceedings pending” before the watchdog.

Chimera 1.0.7 Update Out Now, Jailbreaking Down To 4 Seconds

The Electra Team recently roll out the latest update to its popular jailbreak software Chimera. The new update called Chimera 1.0.7 has an enhanced speed compared to its previous version. The team assures users that the latest update comes with several features that will ensure a much faster jailbreaking process. Meanwhile, Apple also released the iOS 12.3 update. One of the features of this latest update is that it prohibits those who upgraded their iOS to 12.3 to revert or downgrade to iOS 12.2.

The new Chimera 1.0.7 version, that comes with several updates, recently rolled out by the Electra Team, promises to make the process of re-jailbreaking essentially faster. According to the jailbreaking experts at Electra, the standard 12 seconds jailbreaking speed is now down to 4 seconds. The latest update is otherwise similar to the previous Chimera 1.0.6 update that does not require to update until the device is rebooted. The new update can be used to jailbreak tvOS and iOS.

Recently, the Cupertino-based tech titan, Apple, released the iOS 12.3 but it brings bad news to those who would like to try the latest update on their devices but would later want to revert to the old software version. For those who do not wish to update their devices to iOS 12.3, make sure that the automatic update setting in your devices is turned off. To do this, open your mobile device and go to settings, then, open the general settings and look for the software update section. Tap the automatic update settings and switch it off. This option will prevent your device from automatically updating to iOS 12.3 on its own.

Those with the latest Apple devices like the Apple iPhone XS Max, who hopes to jailbreak their devices by holding on to iOS 12.2 could be disappointed. The advances in the jailbreaking world have been very slow so far, and the best that they could get is a semi-tethered jailbreak. It is by far, okay and acceptable but not the best.

iOS 12.3 is a nice update from the Cupertino-based tech giant. It rolled out numerous fixes of under the hood bugs. The latest update also patches several issues related to security. More importantly, it rolls out new additions to the features of your devices. Get the iOS 12.3 now if you want to ensure the security of your device and if you want to experience new features

Usman Khawaja stakes claim despite injury scare in World Cup warm-up

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Usman Khawaja stakes claim despite injury scare in World Cup warm-up

Usman Khawaja staked a late claim to one of Australia’s top-order batting slots despite an injury scare during their five-wicket victory in their World Cup warm-up match against Sri Lanka in Hampshire.

Khawaja hobbled off the field after a ball struck him flush on the left kneecap. He was fielding at mid-off when he dived to his left to stop a ball that had been driven firmly by Jeevan Mendis off the bowling of Steven Smith. Khawaja limped off the field after receiving treatment from the medical staff but was cleared to bat in Australia’s innings.

“It’s fine, embarrassing more than anything,” said Khawaja, after the match. “It just hit the side of my knee and I couldn’t put any weight on it. I’d try to get up, Gaz [Nathan Lyon] was telling me to just lie down, but I was saying I’m not going to lie down, I’m going to get up, but I’d try to get up and I couldn’t. My knee collapsed underneath me because of where it hit, I went off, iced it and after about 25 minutes I felt all right, it’s a bit sore now but nothing structurally wrong.

“When I walked off I was laughing, I was in pain but I knew there was nothing serious about it. It was the same knee I had a reco on, so we were a bit careful about going back on the field just because it was collapsing a little bit but I was alright when I went back out there.”

Opening the batting with Aaron Finch, Khawaja went on to comfortably steer Australia towards Sri Lanka’s total of 239 for 8 in the 45th over with an innings of 89 off 105 balls.

Coach Justin Langer has rotated Khawaja, David Warner and Shaun Marsh in their World Cup warm-up matches, as they attempt to settle on their best batting line-up. Warner was left out of the team against Sri Lanka, amid reports he had complained of tightness or soreness to his upper leg, giving Khawaja one last chance to impress selectors before the World Cup kicks off.

Warner’s absence during the year-long ban for his involvement in the Newland’s ball-tampering scandal allowed Khawaja to cement his place at the top of the order, forming a formidable opening partnership with captain Finch.

But after six warm-up matches played since Warner’s return, the final makeup of Australia’s batting order is still very much open to interpretation. Khawaja has opened four times and Warner on three occasions, although Warner may have had another opportunity at the top in Hampshire if he hadn’t been forced to sit out the match. Khawaja has batted at No.3 once and Warner twice while Marsh – who made 34 off 46 balls before holing out in the deep – has floated between batting at No.3, 4 and 5.

“I do love opening, absolutely,” said Khawaja. “That’s where I’ve batted my whole life in one-day cricket. But at the end of the day it is about winning games and doing the best for your team.

“I’d much rather get a duck and win then me get 100 and lose. It doesn’t matter what happens, where I play, if I play, if I don’t play, if I’m running the drinks, I’m going to try and contribute to the squad.

“I know what the changeroom feels like when you’re winning and what it feels like when you’re losing and the winning one I’ll take any day of the week.”

Australia have now won their past fourteen matches, a streak that began during their tour of India in March and continued through their series against Pakistan in the UAE, and then in their warm-up games against New Zealand in Brisbane and the West Indies, England and now Sri Lanka in England. While Pakistan were not at full strength and the following matches were not official ODIs, such a run will give them welcome confidence as they head to Bristol for their opening World Cup game against Afghanistan on Saturday.

“I thought the Indian series in Australia was, from what I saw from the outside coming into that series – obviously we’d lost a lot of one-dayers before that, was a turning point for us because we probably should’ve won that series and we didn’t,” Khawaja said. “But they’re one of the best sides in the world and we gave them a real run for their money.

“Then we went over to India and lost the first two games and won the series. We all had that confidence even though we lost the first two games that we could compete and actually beat these guys.

“Once we started doing it we got that winning feeling back. Winning is a habit, we say that a lot amongst the team, hence why we try to win all the (warm-up) games we’re playing in, just to keep that habit going. We might’ve lost that habit before but hopefully we’ve found it again leading into the World Cup.”
