Checkra1n jailbreak has gathered a lot of attraction over the past few months as it became the first jailbreak to support iOS 13. Apart from this, it is the first jailbreak based on the un-patchable bootrom exploit since the limera1n era. However, Checkra1n jailbreak only works on macOS for now and the team has been working hard to bring it to other platforms. Now, we’re hearing that Checkra1n jailbreak for Linux is nearing completion and will be released soon. Let’s dive in to see some more details on the subject.

Checkra1n Jailbreak for Linux Will be Released Soon Potentially Ahead of Nullcon in March

Checkra1n co-developer Nikias Bassen or @pimskeks shared on Twitter the exciting news that the Linux version of the exploit is nearing completion and will be released soon rather than later. Henceforth, the jailbreak community now has something to look forward to. In addition, if you’re looking to use the Checkra1n jailbreak for Linux, you will have to wait sometime before Nullcon in March.

Checkra1n Jailbreak for iOS 13.2.3 Released for iPhone and iPad – Download

Checkra1n for Windows is still running into complexities and might be far off from a potential release. However, Checkra1n jailbreak for Linux could provide the jailbreak community with options other than macOS. Take note that the Linux version has been quite problematic considering USB controllers and other dependencies. Nonetheless, the team is closing in on a potential release.

Bassen has not shared any exact dates as of when Checkra1n jailbreak for Linux will be available but the follow-up tweet suggested that it will be sometime sooner than Nullcon in March, as we have previously mentioned. It seems the Checkra1n team will present the exploit and the difficulties it ran through to achieve the final results.

Windows users might not be too excited about the news but it is still a better option since Linux is free and it is easy to dual-boot on a partitioned Windows PC. If you’re unfamiliar with the technique, you can check out our detailed step by step tutorial on how to jailbreak with Checkra1n.

Downgrade iOS 13.2.3 to iOS 13.2.2 for Checkra1n Jailbreak on iPhone, iPad

There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details on the subject. We will keep you guys updated on the latest as soon as it is discovered.

Laura Wolvaardt, Lizelle Lee give South Africa women 1-0 lead

South Africa women 260 for 3 (Lee 99, Wolvaardt 91, Jensen 1-36) beat New Zealand women 259 for 9 (Perkins 78, Bates 53, Klaas 3-37, Khaka 3-43) by seven wickets

Openers Lizelle Lee (99) and Laura Wolvaardt (91*) helped South Africa women pull off a chase of 260 – their second highest in ODI cricket – in the series opener against New Zealand women in Auckland. While Lee was dismissed for a run-a-ball 99, Wolvaardt made a more sedate 91 not out off 124 balls and sealed victory along with Mignon du Preez.

It was Lee who made the early running in the chase, and she brought up her half-century off 51 balls in the 16th over. By then, South Africa were 83 for 0. Lee and Wolvaardt stretched their opening stand to 163 before Lee fell to medium-pacer Hayley Jensen in the 32nd over. Three overs later, Suzie Bates had Luus caught behind for 15 and when Dane van Niekerk departed for 37 in the 47th over, South Africa were all but home. Wolvaardt and du Preez completed the formalities with seven wickets and nine balls to spare.

Lee had struck 13 fours while Wolvaardt hit nine. In all, the entire New Zealand side managed only 20 fours and a six. Fresh off winning the Super Smash title with Wellington Blaze, Sophie Devine had a good start – hitting 27 off 31 balls – but couldn’t convert it into a substantial score. It was Katie Perkins who had top-scored for the hosts, with 78 off 83 balls, including six fours. No.3 Suzie Bates produced the next best score for New Zealand, making 53 off 75 balls.

At 146 for 3 in the 34th over, New Zealand seemed to have the upper hand, but Bates’ dismissal triggered a meltdown as they lost their last six wickets for 113 runs. After Masabata Klaas had taken down the first two wickets, Ayabonga Khaka picked up three wickets in the middle to peg New Zealand back.

Wicketkeeper Rachel Priest (21) and Jensen (20) made late cameos to help push the total beyond 250, but it was not enough on the day for New Zealand.

China virus death toll rises to 41, more than 1,300 infected worldwide

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on China virus death toll rises to 41, more than 1,300 infected worldwide

BEIJING (Reuters) – The official death toll from the coronavirus in China jumped on Saturday to 41 from 26 a day earlier, as local media reported a doctor on the frontline of the battle to contain the virus in Wuhan city had died.

More than 1,300 people have been infected globally, as health authorities around the world scramble to prevent a global pandemic.

Doctor Liang Wudong, 62, at Hubei Xinhua Hospital in Wuhan, the city where the virus first appeared and which is in virtual quarantine, died from the virus, China Global Television Network reported in a tweet.

It was unclear if his death was already counted in the official toll of 41, 39 of which were in the central Hubei province.

The total number of confirmed cases in China now stands at 1,287, the National Health Commission said in a statement on Saturday.

The virus has also been detected in Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Nepal, France, the United States and Australia.

Australia on Saturday announced its first case of coronavirus, a Chinese national in his 50s, who had been in Wuhan and arrived from China on Jan. 19 on a flight from Guangzhou. He is in a stable condition in a Melbourne hospital.

“Given the number of cases that have been found outside of China and the significant traffic from Wuhan city in the past to Australia, it was not unexpected that we would get some cases,” Australia’s Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy told a news conference.

“This is the first confirmed case. There are other cases being tested each day, many of them are negative, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we had further confirmed cases.”

French authorities reported Europe’s first confirmed cases on Friday evening.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Friday it had 63 patients under investigation, with two confirmed cases, both in people who had traveled to Wuhan. Human-to-human transmission has been observed in the virus, which health authorities believe originated in a market in Wuhan that traded illegally in wildlife.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the new coronavirus an “emergency in China” this week but stopped short of declaring it of international concern.

Wuhan, a city of 11 million, is in virtual lockdown. Nearly all flights at the airport have been canceled and checkpoints block the main roads leading out of town. Authorities have since imposed similar lockdowns on more than 10 cities near Wuhan as part of the ongoing containment effort.

As Wuhan slides into isolation, pharmacies have begun to run out of supplies and hospitals have been flooded with nervous residents. The city is rushing to build a 1,000-bed hospital by Monday, state media said.

Hubei’s health authority said on Saturday there were 658 patients affected by the virus in medical care, 57 of whom were critically ill.

The newly-identified coronavirus has created alarm because there are still many unknowns surrounding it, such as how dangerous it is and how easily it spreads between people. It can cause pneumonia, which has been deadly in some cases.

Symptoms include fever, difficulty breathing and coughing. Most of the fatalities have been in elderly patients, many with pre-existing conditions, the WHO said.

NEW YEAR DISRUPTIONS

Airports around the world have stepped up screening of passengers from China, though some health officials and experts have questioned the effectiveness of such screenings and of the lockdown.

Health officials fear the transmission rate could accelerate as hundreds of millions of Chinese travel at home and abroad during week-long holidays for the Lunar New Year, which began on Saturday.

As China scrambles to contain the outbreak some sections of the Great Wall near Beijing will be closed from Saturday.

Beijing’s Lama Temple, where people traditionally make offerings for the new year, has closed, as have some other temples and the Forbidden City, the capital’s most famous tourist attraction.

Shanghai Disneyland will close from Saturday. The theme park has a 100,000 daily capacity and sold out during last year’s Lunar New Year holiday.

Film premieres have been postponed and McDonald’s suspended business in five cities in Hubei province.

Shanghai has shut down all cinemas during the Lunar New Year holidays, which last until Jan. 30, the Liberation Daily said on its online channel on Saturday.

George Worker’s 135 helps New Zealand A pull level

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on George Worker’s 135 helps New Zealand A pull level
Jan

New Zealand A 295 for 7 (Worker 135, McConchie 56, Neesham 33*, Porel 3-50, Siraj 2-73) beat India A 266 for 9 (Pandya 51, Kishan 44, Vijay 41, Neesham 2-24, Duffy 2-35, Jamieson 2-69) by 29 runs

George Worker‘s 144-ball 135 helped New Zealand A pull level in the three-match one-day series in Christchurch, as India A struggled to put on substantial partnerships in the chase of 296 to go down by 29 runs.

Worker didn’t get much company early on as the hosts were in trouble at 109 for 5 before the halfway mark, but support from Jimmy Neesham and Cole McConchie helped them put on a strong total. For India, the main contributions came from the middle order after they were reduced to 88 for 4, but those weren’t enough.

Put in to bat, New Zealand lost wickets quickly as Rachin Ravindra and Glenn Phillips edged to wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan and the scoreboard read 45 for 2 after 11 overs. Ishan Porel then struck twice in as many balls by nipping in sharp deliveries to knock over Tom Bruce’s off stump and trap Tom Blundell lbw for a duck. Mark Chapman chopped one on against Krunal Pandya and the hosts were struggling. Their troubles deepened further when Neesham retired hurt in the 31st over.

Worker, however, found an ally in McConchie, who struck a quick 56 off 54 balls, and he brought up his 13th List A hundred along the way. Worker struck all his six sixes on the off side in the cover and long-off region but the bulk of his 12 fours came on the leg side. The two of them powered the score past 250 and Worker eventually fell trying to ramp Porel fine but handed a catch to Mohammad Siraj at third man. Neesham returned at that point and stayed unbeaten on 33 off 31. Porel finished with an impressive 3 for 50 with two maidens in his ten overs and Axar Patel ended with miserly figures of 10-0-33-1.

Several India batsman got starts but failed to convert them after Prithvi Shaw fell early when he swung hard against Kyle Jamieson to lose his off stump. Ruturaj Gaikwad (17) handed a catch to cover with a leading edge off an innocuous delivery, Mayank Agarwal pulled a short ball to square leg and Suryakumar Yadav edged a short rising delivery to the wicketkeeper, leaving India on 88 for 4 in the 18th over.

Kishan (44) and Vijay Shankar (41) stitched a stand of 58 to revive the chase but their partnership was broken when Kishan tapped a delivery to mid-off to steal a single that didn’t exist and fell short. Vijay fell soon too and Pandya struck a fighting 51 off 48 balls, but India needed 56 from the last five overs and with only three wickets in hand, they fell short.

Democrats in impeachment trial say Trump abused his power for political gain

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Democrats in impeachment trial say Trump abused his power for political gain
Jan
24

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democrats worked methodically at U.S. President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial on Thursday to dismantle his long-standing allegation that Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden acted improperly toward Ukraine while vice president.

On the second day of their arguments for Trump’s removal from office, Democratic House of Representatives members argued that Biden did nothing wrong and was only carrying out official U.S. policy when he pressured Ukraine to fire its top prosecutor, Victor Shokin, because of corruption concerns.

Trump and his allies maintain that Biden wanted Shokin out in order to head off an investigation into a natural gas company, Burisma, where his son Hunter served as a director. Democrats said no evidence supported that allegation.

In more than eight hours of argument, House managers spent Thursday focusing on the charge that Trump abused his office by pressing Ukraine to investigate the Bidens purely for political gain.

They contended that Trump pushed for the probe because he was worried about facing the former vice president in November’s election. Biden is the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination.

“If we allow this gross abuse of power to continue, this president would have free rein – free rein – to abuse his control of U.S. foreign policy for personal interest, and so would any other future president,” U.S. Representative Sylvia Garcia said on the Senate floor. “And then this president, and all presidents, become above the law.”

Democrats contend senators should convict Trump on two charges brought by the Democratic-led House – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

But the Senate, which is controlled by Trump’s fellow Republicans, remains unlikely to do so. A two-thirds majority is needed to remove him from office.

Even so, Democrat Adam Schiff, the lead House manager, ended the evening by commending the senators who had endured a long day of arguments.

“I just want to thank you keeping an open mind about all of the issues that we are presenting,” Schiff said. “That’s all that we can ask for.”

The U.S. Constitution sets out the impeachment process for removing a president who commits “high crimes and misdemeanors.” Trump’s legal team has argued that the House charges were invalid because impeachable offenses must represent a specific violation of criminal law.

Trump condemned the proceedings as “unfair corrupt” in a Twitter post on Thursday.

The charges against Trump arise from his request in a July 25 phone call last year that Ukraine investigate Biden on unsubstantiated corruption allegations and the president’s actions to impede a House inquiry into the matter.

Trump also asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy to investigate a discredited theory beneficial to Russia that Ukraine worked with Democrats to hurt Trump in the 2016 U.S. election. Trump temporarily withheld $391 million in U.S. military aid to Ukraine, which Democrats say was leverage for his demands.

‘OPENED THE DOOR’

Trump’s lawyers quickly argued that by bringing up the Bidens, Democrats had made their conduct a relevant subject for the rest of the trial.

“They opened the door. They opened the door and it’s now relevant,” Jay Sekulow, a personal lawyer for the president and a member of his defense team, told reporters at the Capitol. “So we will address the appropriate issues as defense lawyers would.”

Added Republican Senator Ted Cruz: “Hunter Biden is not only relevant, he is now critical.”

But Sekulow said Trump’s team was not yet focused on whether new witnesses will be called, a matter the Senate will take up after senators have a chance to submit questions to both sides next week.

Trump’s lawyers are likely to begin their defense of the president on Saturday, after House Democrats finish their opening arguments.

Schiff said House managers on Friday would focus on the charge that Trump unlawfully obstructed Congress by keeping key administration officials from testifying and by refusing requests for documents.

As the arguments again went deep into the evening, Republican senators continued to complain the House presentation had become repetitive and that they were looking forward to the president’s defense.

Democrats countered by saying Republicans had blocked their attempts to bring new evidence to light through additional witnesses and documents.

Signs emerged on the second day of arguments that the Democratic case was losing some of the public’s attention. Throughout the session, there were empty seats in the gallery overlooking the Senate floor.

Television ratings were down. About 8.9 million viewers watched the first day of arguments on Wednesday, falling short of the roughly 11 million who watched on Tuesday, according to Nielsen ratings data.

Senators also showed increasing signs of restlessness, with many wandering to the rear of the chamber where they could make phone calls and check their smartphones.

At one point late on Thursday, Republican Senator Thom Tillis wandered into the gallery overhead – and stayed there for a spell, watching the proceedings below.

[Workaround inside] Sileo for checkra1n jailbreak (iOS 13) released, but Cydia sacrificed

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on [Workaround inside] Sileo for checkra1n jailbreak (iOS 13) released, but Cydia sacrificed

It’s true, jailbreaking is a complex procedure! You have to find a compatible tool (because there’s no universal one), go through a series of geeky steps, and if something goes wrong, you will never have warranty claims to make it right.

Speaking of jailbreak tools, checkra1n has risen to popularity ever since its release as the only option for iOS 13 right now. However, A12/A13 support is yet to come to the platform and we did share another glimmer of hope earlier.

checkra1n vulnerability

checkra1n

Once you jailbreak your iDevice, you need a package manager to install the tweaks. In layman’s terms, it works as your app store, using which you can enhance the usability and features. The most popular in this regard is Cydia.

But there’re Zebra, Sileo, Installer, etc. too. A couple of days ago, developers announced Sileo’s arrival to iOS 13 devices. Although they hinted the release of a possible standalone installer, it did come out as a checkra1n bundle.

checkra1n sileo release

Oops! Yeah, if you want to keep Sileo as a backup option with Cydia as your primary package manager, you can’t do that on iOS 13 right now. As the official tweet indicates above, during the installation, you will have to sacrifice Cydia.

Apparently, users are not happy with this move. On top of that, we could spot many (1, 2) complaining about the bugs Sileo for iOS 13 brought up. Have a look at one we found under the official tweet.

sileo for checkra1n ios 13 bug

It’s clear that no one will remove Cydia for another buggy package manager. In case you want to try Sileo to know whether or not it’s working on your device without taking the removal route, you can have a look at a possible workaround given below.

sileo cydia ios 13

Source

What if you just want to eliminate the bugging Sileo forever and bring Cydia back? For that, you will have to follow a few steps that involves downloading a file as well.

1. Download Filza manger if you don’t had one.
2. Go to this link
3. Open Filza manager
4. Then go back to document
5.Click removesileo.sh
6.Let it running and give it about 3 min or less
7. After Cydia shows with Sileo gone, open Cydia
8. If you encounter an error, go to /etc/apt/sources.list.d remove the – sileo source
9.After that you should be good to go. No problem
10.lastly you need remove sileo prep to get apt.bingner to get work.
(Source)

So yeah, using Cydia and Sileo together isn’t officially possible right now. And, we don’t think it’s going to change soon. You will have to either rely on the workarounds or overlook Sileo altogether.

Mackenzie Harvey’s 63 helps Australia prevail over England

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Mackenzie Harvey’s 63 helps Australia prevail over England
Jan

Australia continued to enjoy the edge over England at the Under-19 World Cup. Two years after Lloyd Pope’s astonishing 8 for 35 in Queenstown bowled Australia into the semi-final, Mackenzie Harvey struck a vital half-century in a chase of 253 to win a thriller by two wickets. This meant Australia and West Indies, the table toppers, are through to the quarter-finals from Group B.

Ben Charlesworth top scored with 82 for England, but found little support from the other batsmen. England were handily placed at 141 for 2 going into the last 20 overs, but managed to add just 112 more. That they eventually scraped past the 250-mark was due to Dan Mousely’s unbeaten 51.

In reply, Australia stuttered too after Harvey’s dismissal for 65. From 153 for 2, as they were reduced to 163 for 5 in 33 overs. The asking rate had touched six an over, with left-arm spinner Lewis Goldsworthy picking up vital wickets in the middle. Tanvir Sangha, the legspinner, chipped in with 21 to eat into the target, before Connor Sully and Todd Murphy‘s unbeaten 47-run stand for the ninth wicket carried Australia home.

Elsewhere, first-timers Nigeria were no match to 2016 champions West Indies. They were first run ragged on the field as West Indies scored 303 for 8, fuelled by half-centuries from Kimani Melius, the captain, (65) and Matthew Patrick (68). But it still needed a lower-order revival for West Indies to push forward from 199 for 6. Joshua James’ cameo of 43 off 30 provided the final kick.

Nigeria’s batsmen stuttered against the pace of Jayden Searles, who picked up four wickets to set them back. It was a blow they couldn’t recover from. Having struck a half- century, Patrick picked up two wickets to walk away with the top honours as Nigeria were bowled out for 57, losing by 246 runs.

Exclusive: HDFC Bank to tap Egon Zehnder to identify Aditya Puri’s successor

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Exclusive: HDFC Bank to tap Egon Zehnder to identify Aditya Puri’s successor
Jan
23

MUMBAI (Reuters) – India’s HDFC Bank (HDBK.NS) will retain global executive search firm Egon Zehnder to find a successor to managing director Aditya Puri, four sources familiar with the matter said, as its board seeks to end an impasse and zero in on a candidate.

The board’s decision to recruit a global head-hunting firm comes as a six-member internal search committee, appointed in November last year, has not been able to reach a consensus on selecting a successor to Puri, who has been at the helm of the country’s largest private lender since its inception in 1994.

Puri, whose term comes to an end in October this year, is also an advisor to the search committee tasked with identifying a suitable candidate.

“The latest decision to hire a global advisory firm has been taken after the search committee members realized that they have been struggling to come to a consensus on the final name,” said a source familiar with the internal deliberations among members of the committee.

“The deadline for Puri’s successor is nearing … the bank will have to appoint someone who can continue to push for growth despite an economic slowdown,” he added.

As per regulations, the bank will need to get approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), before any new appointment can be confirmed. HDFC Bank is one of three domestic lenders that the central bank has designated as “too big to fail”.

“We do not comment on our work for client confidentiality reasons,” said Pallavi Kathuria, a senior Egon Zehnder official in response to a Reuters query. The firm in 2018 had helped Axis Bank (AXBK.NS), another private lender, to find its chief executive officer.

A second source at HDFC said the differences between the top leadership over the succession has been the crucial reason for the delay in identifying a new managing director.

The sources said Puri and Deepak Parekh who is the chairman of India’s largest housing finance company HDFC (HDFC.NS), which owns a minority stake in the bank, have been at loggerheads over the succession plan, with both advocating their preferred candidates to secure the job.

Puri’s preferred choices include HDFC’s executive directors Bhavesh Zaveri, Sashidhar Jagdishan and Kaizad Bharucha, said three of the sources.

Two of those sources also said Parekh has been rooting to reinstate Paresh Sukhtankar, who resigned as Puri’s deputy in 2018.

Sukhtankar who joined the bank alongside Puri in 1994 was widely expected to be Puri’s successor. Reasons behind his departure remain unclear.

HDFC Bank did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Puri and Parekh also did not immediately respond to emails sent on Thursday.

Sources said the search committee in a bid to defuse the tension had also contacted top banking executives working overseas to find a candidate acceptable to Puri and Parekh.

The board members held preliminary discussions with Indian-origin bankers Piyush Gupta, CEO of DBS Group (DBSM.SI), and Ajay Banga, CEO of Mastercard Inc (MA.N), about the job, two of the sources said.

The outcome of these discussions was unclear.

Gupta and Banga were not immediately reachable for comment.

Analysts tracking the financial health of the bank said Puri has run the bank with an iron hand, preventing it from accruing a high level of bad loans at a time when most of its peers were struggling.

“The new successor needs to have a vision to be able to spot opportunities and constantly stay ahead of the curve which is what Puri has been doing,” said Suresh Ganapathy, head of financial services research at Macquarie.

Puri, the highest paid banker in India with remuneration of 136.7 million rupees ($1.92 million) excluding stock options, had been seeking for another term, two of the sources said.

However, the central bank has been firm that the chief executives of private banks must retire at the age of 70.

It’s true, jailbreaking is a complex procedure! You have to find a compatible tool (because there’s no universal one), go through a series of geeky steps, and if something goes wrong, you will never have warranty claims to make it right.

Speaking of jailbreak tools, checkra1n has risen to popularity ever since its release as the only option for iOS 13 right now. However, A12/A13 support is yet to come to the platform and we did share another glimmer of hope earlier.

Once you jailbreak your iDevice, you need a package manager to install the tweaks. In layman’s terms, it works as your app store, using which you can enhance the usability and features. The most popular in this regard is Cydia.

But there’re Zebra, Sileo, Installer, etc. too. A couple of days ago, developers announced Sileo’s arrival to iOS 13 devices. Although they hinted the release of a possible standalone installer, it did come out as a checkra1n bundle.

Oops! Yeah, if you want to keep Sileo as a backup option with Cydia as your primary package manager, you can’t do that on iOS 13 right now. As the official tweet indicates above, during the installation, you will have to sacrifice Cydia.

Apparently, users are not happy with this move. On top of that, we could spot many (1, 2) complaining about the bugs Sileo for iOS 13 brought up. Have a look at one we found under the official tweet.

It’s clear that no one will remove Cydia for another buggy package manager. In case you want to try Sileo to know whether or not it’s working on your device without taking the removal route, you can have a look at a possible workaround given below.

What if you just want to eliminate the bugging Sileo forever and bring Cydia back? For that, you will have to follow a few steps that involves downloading a file as well.

1. Download Filza manger if you don’t had one.
2. Go to this link
3. Open Filza manager
4. Then go back to document
5.Click removesileo.sh
6.Let it running and give it about 3 min or less
7. After Cydia shows with Sileo gone, open Cydia
8. If you encounter an error, go to /etc/apt/sources.list.d remove the – sileo source
9.After that you should be good to go. No problem
10.lastly you need remove sileo prep to get apt.bingner to get work.

So yeah, using Cydia and Sileo together isn’t officially possible right now. And, we don’t think it’s going to change soon. You will have to either rely on the workarounds or overlook Sileo altogether.

‘Poster-boy’ Kagiso Rabada is over-burdened as attack leader

Kagiso Rabada‘s aggressive wicket-taking celebrations could be a result of being overburdened, according to Graeme Smith, South Africa’s acting director of cricket.

Rabada, who has 43 Test caps to his name at the age of 24, accumulated a fourth active demerit point when he entered Joe Root’s personal space and screamed at the ground where Root was standing, after dismissing him at St George’s Park. As a result, Rabada will miss a must-win Test for South Africa at the Wanderers. While being careful not to excuse Rabada’s behaviour, Smith called on other players to step up and share the load.

“It can’t happen anymore. He is disappointed,” Smith said. “There is an element of consistency from the ICC we need to get and understand but we cannot have our gun bowler missing games for these type of things anymore.

“He is a poster boy and we need to develop more poster boys. Too much has been put on his shoulders as well. He is on every ad, playing every game, he is carrying the can. If he doesn’t perform well, we are in trouble. I think it’s a good thing he is being rested in this series, we need to see some other people step up and start filling that void and taking some pressure off him. Maybe that will help as well.”

This is not the first time Rabada has been sanctioned for breaching the ICC’s code of conduct. In July 2017, he missed the second Test against England at Trent Bridge after again racking up demerit points which culminated in a send-off for Ben Stokes at Lord’s. South Africa won the match despite Rabada’s absence.

Rabada was also in danger of being suspended from the Cape Town Test against Australia in 2018 after he violated the code of conduct twice in Port Elizabeth, first when he yelled into David Warner’s face and then when he had a shoulder brush with Steve Smith. The second offence was initially deemed a Level 2 sanction but on appeal, Rabada was successful in downgrading it to a Level 1 offence and he escaped a ban.

On that occasion, Rabada admitted he was letting the team down. Now, two years later, he has said almost exactly the same thing, leading to questions about why he has not learnt from his mistakes. Smith believes it could be the expectation that falls on Rabada as leader of the attack, particularly when South Africa are not performing.

At St George’s Park, Vernon Philander and Dane Paterson were ineffective with the new ball, leaving it to Rabada to make the breakthrough with Root’s wicket. While dismissing the opposition captain was something to celebrate, Smith believes Rabada needs to learn how to direct his excitement elsewhere.

“It’s learning how to channel that emotion in the moment, when your adrenaline is pumping and you have put in the hard work,” Smith said. “How does he channel that better? How does he become a charismatic man for the environment and the crowd without transgressing? These are things that hopefully we will be able to guide him but also in those moments on the field, with that instinct, how he responds is important.

“Sometimes you do get hot-headed, we have all been there, on the field, when your emotions are running high, you’re in the moment, it’s a battle between you and the top batter, and vice-versa, and that’s got to come now. He is experienced enough to know how to channel that and that’s what we’ve got to get out of him.”

That Rabada has been able to become so experienced in such a short period of time is also the result of South Africa’s transformation targets, which require the national team to field a minimum of six players of colour including two black Africans on average over the course of a season. And while there have been several black African players in the mix – Lungi Ngidi, Andile Phehlukwayo and Temba Bavuma – none of them have had the same consistent and injury-free run as Rabada, which has resulted in him being overused.

Earlier on Wednesday, Quinton de Kock said he while saw Rabada’s absence this week as a big loss for the team, it was also a much-needed opportunity for Rabada to “get some time off his feet”. Rabada will also be rested from the three-match one-day series which will give the opportunity to recharge the batteries and reflect on his conduct.

“In this period where he is going to have an extra week off and rest the one-day series – KG works extremely hard, he is extremely professional – we will be having discussions on channelling his emotions better and still being that aggressive fast bowler that South African cricket needs,” Smith said. “But he does need support from players around him and needs people to come through and carry some of that can so that he doesn’t always feel he is the ultimate guy that needs to deliver. We need to have more players around him. We need to get people like Lungi permanently on the field and fit and so on, carrying that can with him.”

Ngidi has been named in South Africa’s ODI squad but will only be available subject to passing a fitness test. He has not played any cricket since picking up a hamstring injury in the Mzansi Super League (MSL). He is involved in a three-week strength-and-conditioning camp along with Sisanda Magala, Tabraiz Shamsi and Jon-Jon Smuts, all of whom could play against England if they meet the required fitness standards. Rabada is expected to be back for the T20s.

Adani Power drives 21% jump in Indian utilities’ coal imports in 2019

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Adani Power drives 21% jump in Indian utilities’ coal imports in 2019

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Indian utilities’ coal imports jumped 21% last year, rebounding after a three-year slide mainly due to increased purchases by an Adani Power plant in western India, government data showed on Wednesday.

Imports rose to 69.51 million tonnes, the highest level since 2015, data from the Central Electricity Authority showed. Utilities account for more than 75% of India’s annual coal demand.

Adani’s “Ultra mega” power plant in Mundra, Gujarat, accounted for a quarter of the imports last year, with its shipments rising 75% to 17.35 million tonnes.

The plant started increasing shipments after the Supreme Court in October 2018 allowed it to pass on higher costs due to a rise in prices of Indonesian coal.

Coal imports by the Mundra plant had fallen in 2017 and 2018 as the project was operating below full capacity and the company booked losses because power purchase agreements did not allow it to pass on the increase in fuel costs.

Utilities’ overall imports of thermal coal for the 10 months to October rose 12.6% to 163.86 million tonnes, coal ministry data showed. Data for thermal coal imports for November and December have not yet been compiled.

Analysts expect overall imports of thermal coal from India, one of the world’s largest consumers of coal, to rise by more than 13% in 2019.

Imports are rising despite India’s sharpest economic slowdown since the global financial crisis, as logistical challenges, heavy rains and frequent strikes and protests have hit output at state-run Coal India, which accounts for more than four-fifths of India’s coal production.

Utilities increased coal imports in 2019 despite electricity demand growing at the slowest pace in six years as the broader economic slowdown stifled industrial output.

Federal government-run companies including NTPC Ltd increased imports four-fold to 3.61 million tonnes, the data showed.

Among utilities run by state governments, Tamil Nadu state-run TANGEDCO’s coal imports rose the most, with shipments almost doubling to 5.14 million tonnes in 2019.
