Northants re-sign Pakistan’s Faheem Ashraf for 2020

Pakistan allrounder Faheem Ashraf will return to Northamptonshire in 2020 after signing a deal for the first half of the season. He will be available to play in all formats ahead of Pakistan’s tour of England later in the summer.

Faheem, 25, played for Northants during this year’s Vitality Blast, taking 11 wickets in 11 matches with an economy of 8.11. The club hope he can play a role in their return to Division One of the County Championship next season, with head coach David Ripley describing Faheem as a “genuine threat” on flatter pitches.

“He’s a little bit different bowling wise to what we currently have, he’s got a little bit more pace, he’s a swing bowler and he’s got a batting average of 30 [in first-class cricket],” Ripley said. “I think the key element for Faheem is although we signed him for white-ball cricket this year it was pretty clear to see he could bat properly. He’s played Test match cricket for Pakistan so he’s a genuine three-formats cricketer.”

Although he missed out on Pakistan’s World Cup squad, Faheem has been a regular in the international set-up over the last couple of years. In all, he has played four Tests, 23 ODIs and 26 T20Is for his country.

“The fact he’s got the extra pace is key, we’ve got a very fine group of seam bowlers that got us into Division One and that’s not going to change,” Ripley said. “But when it’s a bit flatter and it’s the last two days of the game and that little bit of nip has gone out of the wicket, someone with a bit of pace and swing and bowling yorkers, then I can see him being a genuine threat when the wickets are flatter.

“What the seam bowlers in Pakistan tend to have to do is find a way to get people out when those wickets are very flat and pretty slow. That’s with swing, that’s with yorkers and bouncers, that’s with reverse swing.”

On U.S. delisting threat, China says ‘decoupling’ would harm both sides

BEIJING (Reuters) – China warned on Monday of instability in international markets from any “decoupling” of China and the United States, after sources said the Trump administration was considering delisting Chinese companies from U.S. stock exchanges.

U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration is considering the move, three sources briefed on the matter said on Friday, in what would be a radical escalation of U.S.-China trade tensions.

It would be part of a broader effort to limit U.S. investment in Chinese companies, two of the sources said. One said it was motivated by the Trump administration’s growing security concerns about the companies’ activities.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said he had noted the reports on delisting and the response from the U.S. Treasury, which said there were no plans to block Chinese listings “at this time”.

China-U.S. trade and financial cooperation is mutually beneficial, Geng told a daily news briefing.

“Exerting maximum pressure and even seeking the forced decoupling of China-U.S. relations will harm the interests of Chinese and American companies and people, create turmoil in financial markets, and endanger global trade and economic growth,” he added.

“This does not accord with the interests of the international community.”

Geng said he hoped the United States would work with China to deepen economic and financial cooperation, and that the United States would take a “constructive attitude” toward resolving differences.

The United States and China have been locked in an escalating trade war for over a year. They have levied punitive duties on hundreds of billions of dollars of each other’s goods, roiling financial markets and threatening global growth.

In June, U.S. lawmakers from both parties introduced a bill to force Chinese companies listed on American stock exchanges to submit to regulatory oversight, including providing access to audits, or face delisting.

Chinese authorities have long been reluctant to let overseas regulators inspect local accounting firms – including member firms of the Big Four international accounting networks – citing national security concerns.

China and the United States are due to resume high-level talks next week in Washington on their increasingly bitter trade war.

China hopes Beijing and Washington will resolve their trade dispute “with a calm and rational attitude”, Vice Commerce Minister Wang Shouwen, who has been part of China’s negotiating team, said on Sunday.

‘Checkm8’ used to jailbreak iPhone X running iOS 13.1.1

The security researcher who developed the “Checkm8” exploit has continued working, and has demonstrated an iPhone X booting in verbose mode with the aid of the exploit that was revealed on Friday.


According to “axi0mX.” the jailbreak took only seconds on an iPhone X running iOS 13.1.1. As the exploit is in the boot ROM, the operating system version isn’t really relevant to the exploit, as the security chain is broken before the device gets to the patchable iOS part.

As before, the exploit still requires a tether, meaning a connection to a computer. Additionally, a reboot will prevent any system modifications like keyloggers installed during the jailbreak from loading, and restores the Secure bootchain.

As the developer of the exploit said on Saturday, the demonstration is the next logical step in developing a new and full jailbreak. Because of the limitations involved in a boot ROM exploit and the Secure Enclave engineering in the iPhone 5s and later, it still doesn’t imply anything further in regards to device security.

The exploit works on any iPhone up to and including the iPhone X. User data and passcode security is maintained with any device that includes a Secure Enclave, including the iPad Air and newer, iPod touch seventh generation, and the iPhone 5s and newer.

Chamari Atapattu onslaught will lead to rethink for Australia

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Chamari Atapattu onslaught will lead to rethink for Australia

7:39 AM ET

It is not quite back to the drawing board for Australia, but they will be forced to rethink their plans to Chamari Atapattu after Sri Lanka’s T20I captain struck a magnificent century at North Sydney Oval to put their attack under a type of onslaught they have not felt for a while.

Defending a score of 4 for 217 – based around Beth Mooney‘s own outstanding hundred – there was never the spectre of defeat looming over Australia, even as Atapattu regularly deposited balls into the stands, but the celebration from Megan Schutt when she finally got a yorker through in the closing stages suggested Australia were feeling the pressure after a West Indies tour where they were rarely tested.

A quick turnaround in the series, with the second match following on Monday evening under lights, doesn’t give much time to assess plans but Atapattu will be a clear focus in the debrief.

“She’s a clean striker of the ball and can take the game away from the opposition, which she has done pretty often in the past and has done against us before,” Mooney said. “So we’ll have to have a sit down and rethink our plans against her, but she was very impressive.”

“Atapattu had a day out… but in terms of what we are trying to do in terms of getting better and being the greatest team ever, it’s making sure we win games like that now rather than losing them”

Beth Mooney

Though Australia continue to raise the bar in the women’s game, with the T20 World Cup five months away it may serve them well to be put in situations where their resolve is tested although Mooney said the response to Atapattu’s innings showed what they have learned over the last couple of years.

“It’s been well documented that it’s happened to us a few times, Atapattu has done it to us, Harmanpreet Kaur did it to us the semi-final at the World Cup, and we sat down and had a rethink about what we were trying to do,” Mooney said. “Credit where credit is due, Atapattu had a day out. Unfortunately, she couldn’t get her team over the line but in terms of what we are trying to do in terms of getting better and being the greatest team ever, it’s making sure we win games like that now rather than losing them. We pegged her back pretty nicely and got her wicket at a crucial stage. In the past we haven’t been able to do that so I think it was a pretty good effort in the end.”

While the context around Atapattu’s hundred – the first by a Sri Lanka player in women’s T20Is and coming against the best team in the world – grabbed the attention in the second half of the game, Mooney’s hundred was a masterclass of T20 batting as well, coming off 54 balls.

Her career-best 117 against England in 2017 came in a defeat as Danni Wyatt also reached three-figures, and Mooney joked that she had been reminded that she wasn’t allowed to score hundreds on her own, but after missing out a couple of times against West Indies recently she was thrilled to make it count.

“The coaches joked with me when I walked off about how I felt and I said, ‘yeah, some good, some bad’ that’s my general response, but you’d take a hundred at the start of the day. I’m pretty happy with how I’ve been hitting the ball, it probably just hasn’t come off as I would have liked in the previous few games but nice to be scoring runs again.”

Hong Kong leader to leave town despite sending invites for National Day party

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong police fired tear gas to break up pro-democracy protests on Sunday as the government announced that the city’s leader Carrie Lam will be out of town for China’s Oct. 1 National Day, despite her sending out invitations for celebrations at home.

The clashes in the Causeway Bay shopping district followed another night of violent showdowns with police after weeks of pro-democracy unrest in the Chinese-ruled city.

Some shops closed ahead of expected demonstrations, while the MTR metro service shut stations, a move that has made it a target of violence in the past.

Protesters shouted anti-China slogans and called for their “five demands, not one less” of the government, including universal suffrage and the dropping of all charges against their arrested colleagues.

They later moved on to the Wan Chai entertainment district, where they daubed paint on the windows of shops seen as pro-Beijing, and were continuing west towards the Admiralty area of government offices.

About 200 China supporters dressed in red T-shirts gathered on top of Victoria Peak, overlooking the harbour, at around midday. They sang the Chinese national anthem and chanted “I love China”.

Angela, a housewife in her 40s, a Chinese flag sticker plastered on her cheek, said the pro-democracy protesters were “thugs”.

“If the government takes violent action I don’t object,” she said. “We have tolerated enough. I think I have emotional problems because of the riots. Because it’s not safe to go out.”

Lam, the focus of weeks of anti-government unrest, will leave for Beijing on Monday to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic the following day.

Lam, who was trapped in an indoor stadium by street protests for hours this week after an “open dialogue” with the people, will return to Hong Kong on Tuesday night overland, minimising the chances of a clash at the airport, a popular target of anti-government protests.

She had sent out invitations “requesting the pleasure of your company” at a flag-raising ceremony and National Day reception at the Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai on Tuesday.

It was not immediately clear why she had the change of heart but the government said Chief Secretary for Administration Matthew Cheung Kin-chung would stand in for her.

Arthur, 40, wearing glasses and a mask covering the lower half of his face, said Lam’s trip was expected.

“In these three months, Carrie Lam has not really cared about the protesters. She only cares about the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) or what we might call ‘her boss’,” he said.

“I think Hong Kong is somehow at this moment the frontline between Western democracy and the dictatorship in China…. Hong Kong looks more and more like a police state.”

One woman, who described herself as a “real Hong Konger”, said she saw a conspiracy.

“So whatever happens if the police really fire with real bullets, she can avoid all the responsibility. So she can say maybe whoever is in charge made a silly mistake.”

Police fired tear gas and water cannon on Saturday night to disperse protesters who threw petrol bombs and rocks, broke government office windows and blocked a key road near the local headquarters of China’s People’s Liberation Army.

Anti-government protesters have attacked the legislature, Beijing’s main Liaison Office, occupied the airport, thrown petrol bombs at police, vandalised metro stations and set street fires in the former British colony.

Police have responded with tear gas, water cannon, rubber bullets and occasional live rounds fired into the air.

The protesters are angry about what they see as creeping Chinese interference in Hong Kong, which returned to China in 1997 under a “one country, two systems” formula guaranteeing freedoms that are not enjoyed on the mainland.

China dismisses the accusation and has accused foreign governments, including the United States and Britain, of fanning anti-China sentiment.

Protests were sparked in June by planned legislation, since withdrawn, that would have allowed the extradition of suspected criminals to mainland China. But they have since expanded into a broader pro-democracy movement.

Rallies in support of the anti-government protesters were held in Australia’s largest cities, with the biggest in Sydney.

Many wore face masks to hide their identity and crowds yelled “stand with Hong Kong” and “fight for freedom”, while placards depicted Chinese President Xi Jinping with a cross marked across his face.

Apple Jailbreak Tool checkm8 Can Permanently Jailbreak iPhone 4S To iPhone X

Jailbreaking activities have become increasingly popular these days, giving rise to the popularity of jailbreakers online. Over the years, the Cupertino-based tech titan has been finding ways to make sure that this kind of activity is stopped. In August, Apple made an error that allows modern iPhone models to be jailbroken.

The company was quick to seed a patch to fix it quickly. Earlier today, a security researcher revealed that a permanent unpatchable bootroom exploit might lead to permanent jailbreak of Apple iPhone 4S to iPhone X. On Twitter, axi0nX, a security researcher, shared its Apple iOS jailbreak tool called checkm8. Many call the latest Apple OS jailbreak tool as an epic jailbreak.

It is worth noting, however, that this particular exploit, with further work, could lead to a jailbreak. The Twitter user explained in his post that the checkm8 is not yet a full jailbreak with Cydia but just an exploit. He explains that developers and researches can use it to decrypt keybags with AES engine, dump SecureROM, and even demote the device to activate JTAG.

The latest Apple iOS jailbreak tool checkm8 is also capable of jailbreaking iPhone 3GS. But, it could not be remotely operated and has to be executed through the use of USB. Although Apple had already patched the vulnerability last month, the security researcher said that the vulnerability is not complicated to exploit on most devices.

The latest Apple iOS jailbreaking tool checkm8 was shared on GitHub and warned users that it could brick their devices. At present, the tool is in its beta stage, and if anything goes wrong, it can restore the device’s latest IPSW in iTunes, but the creator could not guarantee it. It can be recalled that the Cupertino-based tech titan has increased its bug bounty program and will start providing developers with pre-jailbroken devices in the early part of 2020.

Responsible KL Rahul ton sends another reminder of quality

Sep

Five years ago, few would have put money on KL Rahul being a white-ball destroyer. He grew up listening to the virtues of playing straight, leaving the ball, occupying the crease and blunting the new ball. And when he made his first-class debut in 2010-11, everyone, including Rahul Dravid, heaped praises on his old-school principles. Even then, there was little doubt he was a superb timer of the cricket ball.

Now, as he looks to resurrect a career that is at the crossroads, the T20 instincts many believe have trickled into his muscle memory, have made him vulnerable against the moving ball. As a direct consequence, his Test numbers have fallen – an average of 34.58 in 60 innings – and they do no justice to a player of his ability. He’s been told in no uncertain terms that ‘big runs’, perhaps of the kind his best friend Mayank Agarwal made two seasons ago, are needed. The early signs are promising, albeit in white-ball cricket. On Saturday, his List A best of 131 propelled Karnataka to their second consecutive win as they beat Kerala.

In a domestic one-day competition, as an experienced batsman, your first instinct is to attack. However, you could have forgiven him for being confused on Saturday. Does he play for the side? Does he play for his form? Does he play according to the conditions? Does he stick to his natural game? In his first outing against Jharkhand on Thursday, he wasted a start, out for 29 after doing all the hard work.

Against Kerala, conditions were ripe for fast bowling. Extravagant swing, extravagant seam. The curator would’ve bargained for a bit of both, but the wet weather over the past fortnight hasn’t allowed much preparation time. On an overcast morning where the ball kept swinging and the moisture didn’t dry out, Rahul was up against it the moment his former opening partner and Kerala captain, Robin Uthappa, who knows a thing or two about the Chinnaswamy deck, elected to bowl and subjected Karnataka to an examination.

“Once I got set, wanted to make sure I carry on longer because we were only playing five specialist batsmen and three allrounders,” Rahul said after the match. “My plan was to bat till 40-45 overs, and I wanted to stick to that. I just want to stay disciplined with my shot selection, get time in the middle and enjoy my batting again. I haven’t been in the middle for a while, so just wanted to enjoy spending that time.”

Rahul was edgy upfront, unmistakably. Sandeep Warrier, looking to build on a memorable 2018-19 season, kept hitting the seam with great frequency. His first spell read: 5-2-15-2, accounting for the wickets of Devdutt Padikkal and KV Siddharth. What made it even more challenging for Rahul was that Warrier got the ball to nip back in and also hold its line. He kept playing and missing, he was meeting the ball a little high on the bat, he was getting square on to full deliveries. He wasn’t leaning into the drives for an apparent fear of nicking behind. The first 30 minutes were a struggle.

At the other end, he had the nippy Basil Thampi and KM Asif, both capable of bowling 140kph to contend with. Where Warrier bowled length and slightly back-of-length, Thampi erred on the fuller side. And on the stumps. Rahul let his hand-eye coordination take over, flicking disdainfully.

For someone who admittedly doesn’t sometimes give himself a chance to breathe, Rahul was full of intent, even while leaving deliveries once he saw off Warrier’s first spell – a slight change from his most recent avatar in the Caribbean where Shannon Gabriel kept troubling him with bounce and pace leading to him often playing indecisively at the ball. Here, he was clear about wanting to occupy the crease, even as Manish Pandey came in and waltzed to three boundaries in his first five balls. This helped Rahul quickly slip into the role of a second fiddle.

If the first 30 minutes were about finding his feet, the next hour was about ensuring he didn’t throw it away. Until he got to his half-century, he wasn’t predetermining shots. He was – as the old cliché goes – playing to the merit. There were flashes of frustration when he was beaten attempting cut shots to deliveries that weren’t all that short, but his picking of lengths got better as the innings progressed.

“Batting here in the first 10-15 overs in a day game is quite a challenge, it’s like playing out the first session with the red ball,” Rahul said. “I need to work on my game, so this [batting early on] is a good challenge. I have to stay a lot more disciplined and can’t get ahead of the game. I don’t think it’s just a cakewalk to come and get runs here, you still have to work hard.”

In between the struggle, he’d time and again play some of the most breathtaking shots, even if they wouldn’t give him boundaries. He slapped length deliveries from Asif over cover, used a full forward stride to drive against the turn against Vinoop Manoharan and even played the pull off Warrier in his second spell.

The first half-century came off 68 balls, and he took just 40 to bring up the next fifty runs. There were no nerves in the 90s either; he sailed through by crashing two boundaries on 91 and then jogging to bring up his sixth List-A century. As his team-mates applauded, Rahul simply lifted his right hand to acknowledge them. With 12 overs remaining, here was his chance to kick on and make a big hundred.

Now, the proper white-ball destroyer surfaced. He welcomed Warrier for his third spell with two disdainful hits for six. The first was an effortless loft to clear extra cover and the next – typical of a fast bowler snarling in after being hit for six – was a short ball that he clubbed over wide long-on. The let-off on 114, when Sachin Baby couldn’t hold on to a one-handed attempt at cover was the only reprieve in his innings. Eventually, he was out playing for the team’s cause, but not before he’d brought up his highest List A score, and not before reminding the selectors the quality that they all so often talk about is very much there. Now, for him to marry that with consistency to make a return to the Test squad.

Police impose restrictions in Indian Kashmir after Pakistan PM’s speech

SRINAGAR, India (Reuters) – Authorities in Indian Kashmir tightened restrictions on people’s movements on Saturday to prevent possible protests triggered by a speech by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Khan, in an address to the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, warned there would be a bloodbath once India lifts its restrictions in Kashmir which have been in force since it revoked the region’s decades-old autonomy in August and detained thousands of people.

Soon after the speech, hundreds of Kashmiris came out of their homes, shouting slogans in support of Khan late on Friday night and calling for the independence of Kashmir.

On Saturday, police vans fitted with speakers made public announcements in some parts of Srinagar about movement restrictions, while additional troops were deployed to prevent any protests, according to officials and two witnesses.

The troops also blocked access to the main business centre of Srinagar with razor wire.

“This was necessitated after protests across Srinagar city last night soon after Imran Khan’s speech,” said a police official, who declined to be identified.

Muslim-majority Kashmir has long been a flashpoint between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan, which have fought two of their three wars over the divided territory. Both countries rule parts of Kashmir while claiming it in full.

India’s crackdown as it revoked Kashmir’s special status was accompanied by severe restrictions on movement, as well as disconnection of telephone services. Though New Delhi has eased some of the movement curbs, no prominent detainees have been freed and mobile and internet connections remain suspended.

While warning of the consequences of lifting what he described as an “inhuman curfew,” Pakistani premier Khan demanded India do so and free all detainees.

In some areas in Kashmir — including the Soura region near Srinagar which has witnessed protests in the past against India’s decision — people clashed with security forces by pelting stones on Friday night, forcing police to use tear gas to disperse them, said the Indian official.

Khan addressed the United Nations a day after the senior U.S. diplomat for South Asia called for a lowering of rhetoric between India and Pakistan, while saying that Washington hoped to see rapid action by India to lift restrictions it has imposed in Kashmir and the release of detainees there.

New ‘unpatchable’ iPhone exploit could allow for permanent jailbreaking

Sep

A newly announced iOS exploit could lead to a permanent, unblockable jailbreak on hundreds of millions of iPhones, according to researcher axi0mX who discovered it. Dubbed “checkm8,” the exploit is a bootrom vulnerability that could give hackers deep access to iOS devices on a level that Apple would be unable to block or patch out with a future software update. That would make it one of the biggest developments in the iPhone hacking community in years.

The exploit is specifically a bootrom exploit, meaning it’s taking advantage of a security vulnerability in the initial code that iOS devices load when they boot up. And since it’s ROM (read-only memory), it can’t be overwritten or patched by Apple through a software update, so it’s here to stay. It’s the first bootrom-level exploit publicly released for an iOS device since the iPhone 4, which was released almost a decade ago.

In a follow-up tweet, axi0mX explained that they released the exploit to the public because a “bootrom exploit for older devices makes iOS better for everyone. Jailbreakers and tweak developers will be able to jailbreak their phones on latest version, and they will not need to stay on older iOS versions waiting for a jailbreak. They will be safer.”

Hundreds of millions of iPhone devices are affected by the exploit: any device starting with an iPhone 4S (A5 chip) through the iPhone 8 and iPhone X (A11 chip) is vulnerable, although it appears that Apple patched the flaw in last year’s A12 processors, meaning that iPhone XS / XR and 11 / 11 Pro devices won’t be affected.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment.

It’s still very early days for the checkm8 exploit. There’s no actual jailbreak yet, meaning that you can’t simply download a tool, crack your device, and start downloading apps and modifications to iOS.

Crucially, the vulnerability is also what jailbreakers refer to as a “tethered” exploit for now, meaning that it can only be triggered over USB. It would also have to be enabled each time through a computer, which limits the usefulness for a practical jailbreak right now. It’s possible that the exploit will lead an “untethered” jailbreak.

That said, assuming developers are able to use checkm8 as a starting point into iOS (which is a very big “if” right now), the possibilities are nearly endless: permanently jailbroken devices that won’t be reverted back due to Apple software updates or revoked signatures, downgradable iOS devices that could be easily rolled back to previous versions of the software, dual-booting between multiple versions of iOS, and more.

There are also security concerns. Nefarious actors could use the vulnerability to circumvent Apple’s iCloud account locks, which are used to render stolen or lost devices useless, or to install poisoned versions of iOS that steal user information. While Apple can patch the bootrom for its newer devices, the hundreds of millions of iPhones already out there can’t be patched without replacing hardware.

The iPhone jailbreaking scene isn’t nearly as big of a place as it once was, however. Back in the early days of the iPhone, cracking Apple’s devices to install custom software was far more appealing. Back then, there was no way to install third-party apps, and basic features — like customizable wallpapers for the home screen, simple multitasking, or the ability to copy and paste text — were missing, leaving jailbreaking as the only way to get those features. As time went on, iOS got more feature complete, giving most users less of a reason to jailbreak, and Apple got better at quashing the security holes that would allow developers to jailbreak phones.

The value of iOS exploits has also risen greatly, with Apple’s bug bounty program paying for exploits and shadier groups looking to use them to hack iOS devices. That means there’s less incentive for developers who do find jailbreakable exploits to release them. (A recent “flood” of exploits has pushed the price down on iOS exploits to a mere $2 million, compared to $2.5 million on Android.)

There’s still an active community of users who insist on having total control over their phones and tablets, but a combination of less demand for the benefits of jailbreaking and lack of major exploits (especially for newer devices / versions of iOS) has led to some stagnation in the community. Plus, there are now new alternatives like AltStore, a recently launched workaround for installing unsanctioned apps on iOS devices without the hassle of jailbreaking at all.

The new exploit isn’t the only recent development in the jailbreaking space. Over the summer, Apple accidentally unpatched a vulnerability in iOS, opening up modern devices for jailbreaks for the first time in years. And while the hole was quickly patched, it sparked a surge in jailbreaking iPhones.

It’s too early to say whether the checkm8 will lead to a new golden age for hackable iPhones, although many members of the jailbreak subreddit are extremely optimistic. One user proclaimed that is is “literally the biggest thing to ever happen in Jailbreaking” due to the scope of the exploit. Either way, given the nature of the exploit and the extent of the devices it impacts, it’ll be something to monitor going forward.

Mohammad Azharuddin elected Hyderabad Cricket Association president

Mohammad Azharuddin has been elected president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association. The former India captain took 147 of the 223 votes cast, with his nearest opponent Prakash Jain polling 73 votes and a third contestant, Dilip Kumar, just three.

R Vijayanand will be the new HCA secretary. He won 137 votes, more than twice as many as the favourite S Venkateshwaran, who polled 62 votes.

The development adds another chapter to the life of Azharuddin, who has never been far from the news since scoring hundreds in his first three Test matches back in 1984-85. Azharuddin played 99 Tests and 334 ODIs before his career was brought to an abrupt end in 2000 with the BCCI banning him for life after the Central Bureau of Investigation found him guilty of match-fixing.

In its report, the CBI said: “The evidence against Azharuddin … clearly establishes the fact that he took money from bookies/punters to fix cricket matches and also the fact that the ‘underworld’ had approached him to fix matches for them.”

Azharuddin, in his statement to the CBI, had admitted to receiving money from the bookie Mukesh Gupta to fix some matches, but has stated that he “did” only two matches for him – an admission the CBI called “a dilution of the actual facts”.

Yet Azharuddin, who led India in 47 Tests and 174 ODIs, never stopped pleading his innocence until the Andhra Pradesh High Court finally struck down the life ban in 2012, declaring it illegal.

Along the way, Azharuddin has enjoyed a gradual reintegration with Indian cricket and public life, but the ride hasn’t always been smooth.

In 2009, he joined the Congress party, and served as a Member of Parliament from 2009 to 2014. In 2011, he had to endure the untimely death of one of his two sons, Ayazuddin, who succumbed to injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in his hometown Hyderabad.

This is the second time Azharuddin has put his hat in the HCA ring. In January 2017, Azharuddin made his first bid to contest the elections, but his nomination for the president’s post was rejected due to uncertainty over whether or not the BCCI had lifted his life ban.

Last year, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), helmed by Sourav Ganguly – who took over India’s captaincy soon after the 2000 fixing scandal – invited Azharuddin to ring the ceremonial bell at Eden Gardens at the start of a T20I between India and West Indies. The CAB’s decision drew flak from numerous voices including former India batsmen Gautam Gambhir – who called it “shocking” – and Sanjay Manjrekar – who responded by tweeting a link to the CBI report from its match-fixing investigation.

Azharuddin didn’t give up his desire to enter cricket administration, however, and re-entered the fray for the top post at the HCA. The elections took place at the HCA headquarters in Hyderabad on Friday, supervised by electoral officer VS Sampath, a former election commissioner of India.

The elections marked the first time that former international cricketers participated in the voting process. This was one of the key recommendations of the RAM Lodha Committee that led to the structural overhaul of cricket administration at the BCCI and its state associations. Eleven international players from Hyderabad cast their votes, including Azharuddin, VVS Laxman and Venkatapathy Raju.

Two Rohingya killed in gun battle with Bangladesh border guards

Cox’s Bazar, BANGLADESH (Reuters) – Two Rohingya refugees were killed in a gun battle with Bangladeshi border guards as they tried to cross into Bangladesh from Myanmar on Friday, officials said.

More than 730,000 Rohingya refugees live in Bangladesh, having fled persecution in neighbouring Myanmar where security forces are accused of carrying out killings, gang rape and arson in a crackdown after attacks on police posts by Rohingya insurgents in August 2017.

Bangladesh is hosting refugees in cramped conditions in camps in the border district of Cox’s Bazar, but wants to move them to a remote island in the Bay of Bengal, citing monsoons and an increasingly deteriorating law and order situation fueled by drug smuggling.

Mohammad Faisal Hasan Khan, the commanding officer of the Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) in the Teknaf sub-district of Cox’s Bazar, said that in early hours on Friday a group of Rohingya were crossing a river on the border by boat when border guards challenged them and asked them to surrender.

“But instead of surrendering they responded with fire arms,” Hasan said.

“When attack and counter attack stopped the BGB members went to the spot and found two Rohingya laid down on the ground with bullet (wounds),” he told Reuters.

They were pronounced dead on arrival at a local hospital. The BGB said it recovered 70,000 methamphetamine tablets, known locally as Yaba, along with a rifle and bullets, from the bodies.

Iqbal Hossain, additional police superintendent in the Cox’s Bazar district, said that 44 Rohingya have been killed in gunfights with law enforcement agencies from January to date.

“All of them were engaged with drug peddling, robbery, human trafficking and arms trade,” Hossain told Reuters.

“In recent months a section of Rohingya are getting involved in crimes and out of them some were killed in gunfights with law enforcement agencies.”

Prodeep Kumar Das, officer in charge of Teknaf police station, told Reuters that several police officers have been injured in gun battles with refugees.

Rohingya rights groups say they want the killings investigated.

“We don’t support any criminal activities, but we cannot accept such killing. We demand thorough investigations of all such killings,” said Syed Ullah, general secretary of Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights of Kutupalong camp in Teknaf.

“Rohingyas can not do it without the support and help from local people.”

AltStore is an iOS App Store alternative that doesn’t require a jailbreak, here’s how to use it

Apple has some strict rules about what can be published on its App Store. iPhone and iPad users can’t install apps like console emulators, Torrent clients, and more. Some workarounds eventually appear on the web, but they usually require a jailbroken device. This not the case with AltStore. Developer Riley Testut announced today this alternative solution to the iOS App Store that will not requires jailbreak tools, making it available even for users on iOS 13.

According to an article on Testut’s personal blog, AltStore uses the feature that Apple gives to developers for testing their apps on real devices, rather than enterprise certificates which can be easily cracked down on by Apple. The tool basically tricks the device into thinking it’s installing apps made by yourself. This way, Apple simply can’t shut down AltStore unless they change something deeper on iOS system with a future update.

Since these apps should theoretically be installed from Xcode, AltStore simulates that process with a companion app made for Mac and Windows. Users can explore and install apps directly from iPhone and iPad, but it requires the desktop version running in background on the same network to work.

We have tested AltStore and it works as promised, but there’s only one app available at the time — Delta NES emulator — so keep that in mind. If you want to try it, proceed on your own risk.

How to use AltStore

First, you have to download and install AltServer on your computer. Just open the app, connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer with an USB cable and select it from the “Install AltStore” menu.

The app will ask your Apple ID credentials so it can create a free Apple Developer Certificate. If you’re not sure about sharing your personal account, you can create an alternate Apple ID just for this.

After that, the AltStore icon will show up on your iPhone or iPad Home screen. You might have to authorize it in Settings before opening it for the first time.

AltStore is very similar to Apple’s App Store. The first tab features new apps, Browse lets you explore the entire catalog and My Apps shows what you have installed on your device.

Before installing any apps, tap on the Settings tab and enter your Apple ID credentials — the same you have used before to set up AltServer on your computer.

With everything set up, just choose the app you want and install it, just like on the App Store. You can access AltStore installed apps from the iOS Home screen.

Testut said more apps will be available over AltStore after the official launch scheduled to September 28. He also notes that AltStore is an open source project, so other developers can take a look at everything on GitHub. More technical informations can be read here.
