You have to prove yourself again after injury – Woakes

Stuart Law believes West Indies can “exploit the weaknesses” in the England side and prove their critics wrong.

While West Indies are eighth in the Test rankings and without a Test victory in England since 2000, Law feels the inexperience of the England top-order provides “an opportunity” for his bowlers.

In particular, he has noted England’s difficulties in finding an opening partner for Alastair Cook – Mark Stoneman is set to become his 12th partner since the retirement of Andrew Strauss – and the lack of experience elsewhere in a top five that includes Tom Westley and Dawid Malan, who have played four Tests between them.

“With a couple of debutants or a couple of new guys to the fore in Test cricket, that’s an opportunity for our bowlers,” Law said. “You always look at any little crack you can find.

“We’ve some pretty experienced, pretty good bowlers up front as well. So it’s an opportunity for us to exploit those weaknesses.”

Law also feels the manner in which some have dismissed his side’s chances could play to their advantage.

“Our players understand there’s a few comments flying around like that,” Law said. “And we’ve instructed them to use that as motivation to go out and play your best.

“There’s been a lot said about this cricket team and that is motivation for them. We’re looking forward. Let’s rewrite that history.”

Such motivation worked well the last time these two teams played. Ahead of that series, in 2015, the ECB chairman, Colin Graves, suggested West Indies were a “mediocre” side which should be defeated relatively comfortably by England. The words were stuck to West Indies’ dressing-room door and served to inspire the team to a 1-1 series result that hastened the demise of Peter Moores as England coach. Graves subsequently apologised for his comments.

On this occasion there has been no such talk from the England camp. While some aspects of the UK media remain bullishly confident, the most damning appraisal of the West Indies’ hopes as come from one of their former players. Curtly Ambrose suggested West Indies would have to “play exceptionally well to even compete against England.”

If West Indies are to “exploit those weaknesses” they are likely to need Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel and Jason Holder in top form. On recent evidence Gabriel is not at his best – he delivered 20 no-balls in nine overs against Derbyshire the other day – while Law accepts Roach does not quite have the pace that once made life so uncomfortable for the likes of Jonny Bairstow and Ricky Ponting. He does, however, have nothing but praise for Holder.

“Kemar had a bit of time out of the game with injuries and a nasty car accident,” Law said. “He’s had to fight his way back. He’s probably not as quick as he has been but I think he’s a better bowler for that. He is still fast enough to cause problems and he is swinging the ball both ways.

“Shannon is coming along nicely. He is training the house down and just needs a bowl to get that rhythm back. He’s fit to bowl. We’re just waiting on him to hit his traps – do that and it’s 95mph coming at you.

“The ground was uneven in Derby. He hadn’t bowled for a while and he was over-striding. When he got it right he looked good.

“As for Jason… He’s a young man but very intelligent and high quality. The captaincy is a lot of responsibility but he does it with fantastic integrity. He’s a great leader. His bowling is more than very good and he can bat and score runs.

“He’s doing everything to make sure he captains this side not just this series but for 10 or 15 years.”

While Law does not sound totally convinced by the idea of day-night cricket in England (“it works in certain countries,” he said) or the pink ball (“it’s very hard to shine… and it sounds like a plastic ball off the bat”), he thinks the format is worth a try for the long-term health of the game.

“We understand the ICC are looking at ways to promote Test cricket,” he said. “And if it does bring in extra people after work, or extra funding for grass roots cricket, then it’s got to be here to stay.”

How to Jailbreak Your iPhone: The Always Up-to-Date Guide [iOS 10]

Jailbreaking your iOS device has always been a pastime for tinkerers and users who want a little more from their iPhone or iPad, though the practice has fallen out of favor as of late. The process of unlocking your device never stays stagnant, however, so we’re here to let you know how to jailbreak your device.

In short, you can’t.

Current iOS version: iOS 10.3.3

iOS 10.3.3 is the latest stable version of Apple’s mobile operating system. iOS 10 has proven a difficult beast for jailbreakers to take down. Thanks to faster software updates and additional security, Apple is making it harder for jailbreak programmers to gain access to the inner workings of iOS devices.

Should You Jailbreak Your Device?

You shouldn’t try jailbreaking your device. I mean, you actually can’t but you still shouldn’t try.

It sucks, but it’s true. The jailbreak community was once a thriving ecosystem of useful customization apps and system-level modifications that added features desperately needed in iOS devices at the time. Visual modifications like the screen-dimming Night Shift mode and Wi-Fi tethering were once only available to tinkerers ready to potentially brick their device and risk it all for jailbroken apps like Flux and MyWi.

Now, Apple’s incorporated the best work of the jailbreak community into later versions of iOS, making jailbreaking your iOS device more trouble than it’s worth. According to Motherboard, famous jailbreak programmers have since abandoned the jailbreak scene and have turned to other projects, with some choosing to work at Apple itself. Even the founder of the jailbreak App Store Cydia has given up on the practice, citing its potential to be used to hack phones for malicious purposes rather than add functionality.

Can You Jailbreak?

A functional jailbreak method for iOS 10.3.3 doesn’t exist in the wild yet, and Apple has stopped allowing users to downgrade to lower OS versions susceptible to jailbreaking. Callum Jones of Can I Jailbreak, a site that tells you which iOS devices are jailbreak-ready, doesn’t think a public utility will be released anytime soon. What’s more, prominent jailbreak programmers like Luca Todesco have publicly stated jailbreaking is more trouble than it’s worth. Todesco tweeted he was ending public research into iOS jailbreaking, so your chances of installing Cydia on your iOS device anytime soon are slim to none.

“Apple’s release timing, (they’re pushing iOS updates faster than they used to, with a heavier focus on security), and the complex nature of the jailbreaks means so much work is required.

Even Sites like iOS9Cydia and DownloadPangu claim to have current jailbreak tools, but according to Jones the sites “hijack common names or brands to hit high in search traffic by promising new jailbreaks.” There are other factors that go into releasing a jailbreak as well, factors Apple is taking steps to make more difficult.

Since some jailbreak programmers solicit donations to support their work, “Timing is important to jailbreak developers to maximize the impact of their jailbreak,” according to Jones. Faster updates and a focus on security have made the practice of hacking iOS more difficult, and the payoff just isn’t worth it.

Modi urges India to reject violence in name of religion

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged India on Tuesday to reject religious violence, after a series of attacks against minorities sparked debate about whether a surge of Hindu nationalism is undermining the country’s secular ideals.

In a speech from the ramparts of Delhi’s Red Fort marking the 70th anniversary of India’s independence, Modi also listed his government’s achievements, including a fight against corruption.

The speech was light on foreign policy, making no mention of arch-rival Pakistan or of China. India has for nearly two months stationed hundreds of troops along its northern border with China because of a territorial dispute.

Modi has spoken out against attacks by right-wing Hindus, many of whom back his Hindu-nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), against minority Muslims and lower-caste Hindus accused of killing cows, considered holy by the majority Hindus.

But the setting of his denunciation of violence on Tuesday was significant.

“We will not tolerate violence in the name of faith,” Modi said before a teeming crowd at the fort and a huge television audience.

Modi made much of the progress India has made since independence from British rule in 1947.

But he also expressed pain over the death of at least 60 children in a state-run hospital last week amid shortages of supplies – a reminder much remains to be done on India’s journey to development.

‘AURA OF PROGRESS’

Since coming to power in 2014, Modi has found it difficult to balance the competing demands of groups from his nationalist Hindu power base and those Indians striving to build a modern, secular country befitting its growing economic influence.

Manoj Joshi, a fellow at the Observer Research Foundation think-tank said Modi was playing “good cop, bad cop” by condemning communal violence but doing little to rein in elements of his ruling party.

“There is an obvious gap between slogan and implementation. It’s a deliberate gap and it’s just for the record,” he said.

Modi also spoke at length about delivering a “new India” by 2022, underlining his confidence of winning the next general election, due by 2019.

Strong growth and economic reforms have bolstered Modi’s popularity and helped his party sweep state elections in recent years, leaving the opposition severely weakened.

Still, to keep up with the demands of India’s 1.3 billion people, the government needs to create millions more jobs a year, which it is struggling to do.

“A certain level of triumphalism … brought Modi to power,” analyst Ajai Shukla told NDTV. “Now he realises people are expecting answers. He felt the need to convey an aura of progress.”

Modi was conciliatory towards the Muslim-majority Himalayan region of Kashmir, where violent protests against Indian rule have erupted over the past year, saying neither “name-calling nor bullets” would be enough to pacify the region.

What was needed, he said, were “hugs” for Kashmiris.

Kashmir has been divided between Pakistan and India, and a source of conflict between them, since their creation upon the partition of British-ruled India in 1947.
