Handscomb 103* sets up Victoria win; Tasmania thrash South Australia

Victoria 3 for 233 (Handscomb 103*, Gotch 51*) beat Cricket Australia XI 232 (Nielsen 94, Wright 30) by 7 wickets

Peter Handscomb, Australia’s No. 5 Test batsman, blazed to an unbeaten century after his fellow Ashes aspirant Peter Siddle did not give much away with the ball to guide Victoria to a bonus point win over the Cricket Australia XI at Hurstville Oval in Sydney.

Having kept wicket at times during Australia’s unsuccessful ODI series in India, Handscomb has also taken the gloves for the Bushrangers in two domestic limited overs matches since his return. However, it was his starburst of strokes in pursuit of the CA XI total that will have most interested the selector on duty Greg Chappell, with support from Seb Gotch.

Hurstville is a venue noted for favouring batsmen, but the CA XI were never likely to set a steep task for Victoria after sliding as low as 6 for 45 to the Bushrangers’ pacemen. Chief among the wreckers was Siddle, who claimed the key wickets of Clint Hinchliffe and Max Bryant – he of the 89 ball 61 against New South Wales on Sunday – while conceding a mere 20 runs from 10 precise overs.

The young wicketkeeper Harry Nielsen, son of the former Australia coach Tim Nielsen, then prolonged the CA XI innings with a determined 94, aided by stands of 59 with Mac Wright, 53 with Mark Steketee and 59 with Charlie Stobo. Nielsen fell short of his own century in the dying overs, but he had enlarged the CA XI total just enough to ensure plenty of fireworks from Handscomb.

Tasmania 6 for 315 (Bailey 86, Doolan 62) beat South Australia 186 (Ferguson 43, Carey 41) by 129 runs

Tasmania captain George Bailey supercharged his side’s batting to push the Tigers to victory over South Australia in the domestic limited overs match at North Sydney Oval.

Ben Dunk and Alex Doolan provided a platform for Bailey by negotiating the new ball after the Redbacks’ captain Callum Ferguson sent Tasmania in to bat, before the former Australia ODI captain clattered six sixes in a 62-ball stay that was supported by Matthew Wade – playing his first match for the Tigers since relocating from Victoria during the winter.

James Faulkner, the Australia allrounder, also provided some late innings acceleration to the Tasmanian innings with a rapid-fire 34, leaving the left-arm paceman Nick Winter in particular with bowling figures he would rather forget.

SA’s pursuit looked to be on course to make the match close when Alex Carey and Ferguson were purring through the early overs, but the wicketkeeper’s exit heralded a regular fall of wickets shared amongst Riley Meredith, the leg spinner Cameron Boyce and the part-timer Dunk. The win was by a wide enough margin to grant Tasmania a bonus point and lift them off the bottom of the competition table, ahead of the Cricket Australia XI.

Supreme Court bans firecracker sales in Delhi ahead of peak pollution season

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – The Supreme Court on Monday temporarily banned the sale of firecrackers in and around the capital ahead of Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, as it looks to prevent a repeat of severe air pollution that forced school closures last year.

New Delhi’s air quality has hit “very unhealthy” levels, U.S. Embassy data shows. This is often blamed on burning of unwanted vegetation on farms in neighbouring states, usual at this time of year, worsened by fumes from fireworks. (bit.ly/2eZOb9H)

The ban takes effect immediately and will run until Nov. 1, said a panel of Supreme Court judges headed by Justice Arjan Kumar Sikri, adding its impact on the region’s air quality would have to be examined after the festival.

“All temporary licenses to sell firecrackers stand cancelled,” said Haripriya Padmanabhan, a lawyer representing the group that sought the ban.

“People who had already purchased crackers will be able to burst them. Hopefully they won’t do that,” she told Asian News International, a partner of Reuters Television.

Diwali, traditionally ushered in with the setting off of firecrackers mainly by India’s majority Hindu community, falls on Oct. 19 this year.

The government welcomed the move, with Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan requesting people to abide by the order.

But others, including Priti Gandhi, a leader from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Hindu nationalist party, saw it as an attack on tradition and Hindu culture.

“We Indians will protest and burn crackers,” wrote one Twitter user, Ishkaran Bhandari. “We will uphold our culture, traditions and celebrate Diwali.”

Last November, about a million children were forced to stay home from school, thousands of workers reported sick and queues formed outside shops selling face masks as New Delhi struggled with its worst pollution for nearly 20 years.

Vehicle emissions and dust from construction sites were the factors blamed for that spike, besides firecrackers and farm burnings.

India and China together account for more than half of the 4.2 million deaths attributable to air pollution worldwide in 2015, a study by the U.S.-based Health Effects Institute (HEI) showed.

Global environmental group Greenpeace said the court ban on crackers was only a small relief for the “episodic air pollution levels in October”.

“The pollution levels in north India are multiple times higher than the national standards throughout the winter months, hence we also need to look at a stricter, comprehensive and time-bound action plan to address all sources of air pollution across India,” a Greenpeace India spokeswoman said.

The iPhone X is, no doubt, going to be a hot device for many people. However, for some Apple fans, the ability to have a jailbroken device is more important than having the hottest new thing on the market. This is not a new dilemma. We see jailbreaking fans have a bit of an existential struggle every time a new iPhone or version of iOS is released. Upgrade and lose the ability to jailbreak or stay on the old software/device and miss out on new features? Luckily switcherRadii brings an iPhone X look to the iOS 10 app switcher.

For those using a jailbroken device, switcherRadii is a great way to enjoy the aesthetics of an iPhone X while still making use of jailbroken features and tweaks. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Now, it’s important to note that switcherRadii doesn’t actually change the functionality of the iOS 10 app switcher or add any new features. Rather, this is merely a cosmetic change that allows dedicated jailbreakers who refuse to upgrade a chance to experience the look of an iPhone X on whatever device they may currently own.

When using the iOS 10 app switcher/multitasking function, the apps will have rounded corners much like we see in the iPhone X. Like I said, this isn’t a big, groundbreaking feature addition. The switcherRadii tweak is a simple, visual change that’s also easy to install. All users have to do is download the app and they’re done. No settings to play with, no special procedures to go through. If you have a jailbroken device and you want that iPhone X look on your iOS 10 app switcher then this is the easiest solution.

Best of all; the switcherRadii tweak is free. That’s a lot easier on the wallet when compared to the $999 iPhone X price tag. If you want to download switcherRadii on your jailbroken device you will have to add the creaturesurvive.github.io repo and then install from Cydia. Simple, quick, and free. What more can you ask for? Well, I guess you could ask for an iPhone X but that means giving up the ability to jailbreak your device (for now) and about $1000 from your wallet.

If you have a jailbroken device, give your iOS 10 app switcher some love with switcherRadii. The tweak is free and, for a moment, you can feel like you’ve got an iPhone X in your hand.

I want to play until I’m 50

Brad Hogg is 46 years old. He is already establishing a presence as a commentator, but given the chance, he is more than happy to step out on the field again. The left-arm wristspinner has earned another one-year contract with Melbourne Renegades to play the seventh edition of the Big Bash League.

Having left Perth Scorchers ahead of the previous BBL season, Hogg was without a contract. The Renegades brought him on board in 2016-17, but that was a one-season deal. He played all eight matches for them, taking eight wickets at an economy rate of 7.2.

“Look out Melbourne, I’m coming back,” Hogg said. “I had such a good time during the last BBL season and the fire to compete is burning strongly.”

He is currently in India, following the Australian team and working as an expert for the host broadcaster, and he spoke about his desire to play until he is 50.

“I just want to play. I don’t care where and who wants me, as long as I’m delivering and enjoying it. I want to crack the 50 mark,” Hogg told the Cricket Australia website. “If the body holds up, the body holds up. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. If batsmen get on top of me and start belting me out of the team, so be it. I want to finish my career playing the Big Bash.”

As eager as he was to keep playing, Hogg admitted he had to be cautious. “I’m fully fit, there’s nothing wrong with my endurance,” he said. “It’s just being able to run at 100%. I am getting old. I feel young but the left knee just said ‘hey old fella, your mind might be 21 but I’m 46. So pull your head in a bit. It doesn’t matter what the scenario is, if I can’t train and keep up with the other players, that’s a sign for me to pull out. If I’m playing, I’ve got to do the hard yards like everyone else. I don’t want that easy way out (because) I’m old.”

Renegades head coach Andrew McDonald said: “Hoggy proved last year, as he has done for many years, that he can still deceive some of the best players in the world with the ball. He’s an energetic and experienced presence around the group and we’re excited to have him back.”

Saudi Aramco expands in India

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Saudi Aramco launched a new Indian venture near New Delhi, a government statement said on Sunday, as the global oil exporter looks to tap rising demand and invest in the world’s third-biggest consumer.

India’s Oil Minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who jointly inaugurated the local unit with Aramco Chief Executive Amin Nasser, said the move would help pave the way for “a strategic partnership in the hydrocarbon sector” between the two nations.

Saudi Aramco through its subsidiary ARAMCO Asia India (AAI) established its formal business presence in India last year, the statement said.

Aramco is investing in refineries in major markets to lock in customers ahead of its initial public offering next year, and the India business, on top of sales, will look for opportunities to take stakes in refining and petrochemical projects in the country.

Saudi Arabia is competing with Iraq to be India’s top oil supplier, with Iraq displacing it for a fifth month in a row in August, data compiled by Reuters showed.

Nasser is in New Delhi to attend the IHS-CERA conference, which starts on Sunday, which will also be attended by OPEC Secretary General Mohammed Barkindo.

The heated battle between Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan recently grabbed headlines once again when a 29-page document was brought under the scanner again. Since then, Kangana’s sister Rangoli has been taking to her social media handle to hit out at the actor by calling him “stalker uncle” among other things.

After a new forensic report was released showing that the ‘Krrish’ star was in the clear, Rangoli took to Twitter once again to mock him. Asking Hrithik to “move on,” she said, “Come on @iHrithik move on now!! Stop using this same old boring stuff!!! I mean really private forensic report!! What all u do.”

She also alleged that the forensic report in question was “paid for”. She said, “This is the same private forensic report Hrithik paid for in 2016, police investigation report says No Imposter.”
Hrithik’s filmmaker father Rakesh Roshan recently came out in his support, saying that his family members were not loose talkers and wouldn’t make unsubstantiated accusations.

Dai leads Papua New Guinea to second on WCL points table

Papua New Guinea have moved up to second place on the World Cricket League points table on the back of beating Scotland by five wickets in Port Moresby. Bouncing back in fine style, with Mahuru Dai‘s 63 off 54 balls, they chased the target of 204 with two overs and five wickets to spare.

The small target was helpful considering only one of the top five could move past 25. Captain Assad Vala had taken the score to 130 for 5 before handing the reins over to Dai, who came in during the 31st over, and went on a boundary-hitting spree. He struck 10 fours, which accounted for 63% of his runs, and ensured Scotland’s bowlers, despite the work they put in to push the chase to the 48th over, were defeated.

A much larger portion of the blame fell on the batsmen, which would have been doubly disappointing considering Scotland had won the toss. Matthew Cross made 91 off 120 balls – accounting for nearly half of his team’s total – as his team-mates fell in a heap around him. The next highest score was 22.

Modi, under fire, eases burden on small companies

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government on Friday eased tax rules for small and medium-sized companies, as it rushes to address growing criticism of its stewardship of Asia’s third-largest economy.

Modi, in a rare acknowledgment that economic sentiment had turned negative, this week defended his handling of the economy, which in the June quarter grew at an annual 5.7 percent, its slowest rate in three years.

Small and medium-sized enterprises, crucial to Modi’s plans to create millions of more jobs, have been hurt by a massive tax overhaul launched on July 1 that added layers of bureaucracy for companies and hit exports.

Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Friday chaired a meeting of the council for the Goods and Services Tax (GST), a landmark reform which turned India’s 29 states into a single customs union for the first time.

After the day-long meeting, Jaitley said small businesses would be allowed to file tax returns once a quarter instead of every month. He also said duties would be cut on some products and the threshold for lower tax would be raised.

“We are not in a denial mode that there is a problem in the SME (small and medium enterprises) sector,” said a senior lawmaker who has been working with Modi’s office to combat the economic slowdown.

Ajay Sahai, head of the Federation of Indian Export Organisation, said before the Jaitley press conference that its 25,000 small and medium-sized members had found the monthly tax drill “exhausting”.

While a mountain of bad loans has crimped bank lending to India’s bigger companies, smaller firms have been hurt by a government move last November to stamp out “black money” – untaxed cash that oils many industries – and by GST, whose complex structure has baffled companies down the supply chain.

“Informal sources of working capital (for smaller firms) has dried up,” said Anil Bhardwaj at the Federation of Indian Micro and Small and Medium Enterprises.

He predicted that it would be another year before GST began to have a positive impact on smaller companies.

Jaitley has promised steps to boost economic growth back above 7 percent and towards the levels economists say India requires to generate employment for the one million entering the workforce every month.

Modi built a reputation as an economic reformer capable of delivering jobs and wealth for an increasingly aspirational population, but slowing growth will be near the top of voter concerns in upcoming state elections.

Investment remains low. The government has hiked spending on infrastructure, but private investment has remained muted.

    “It is not easy because our banking system is in deep trouble and private investment is not picking up,” the lawmaker said. “The government will have to recast all policies that will activate the public sector.”

Commerce Minister Suresh Prabhu said in a tweet his department was working with Jaitley to address GST-related issues of exporters.

Jaitley said input tax credit for exporters for July and August, estimated at $10 billion, would be refunded soon.

Steven Smith returns home with injury, David Warner to lead

3:51 AM ET

Australia’s captain Steven Smith is flying home early from India, leaving David Warner to lead the side in the Twenty20 internationals, after failing to shrug off a shoulder problem he picked up during the fifth ODI in Nagpur.

Smith has been unable to bat or throw without discomfort since landing on his right shoulder during that match, forcing the selectors to call in Marcus Stoinis as his replacement for the three T20 fixtures.

“Smith landed awkwardly on his right shoulder whilst diving in the field during the fifth ODI against India last Sunday,” team doctor Richard Saw said. “Following the match he complained of shoulder soreness, which has not settled and is restricting his ability to bat and throw.

“Subsequently he has had an MRI scan which has excluded serious injury, but we believe the best course of action is for him to not continue to aggravate his shoulder and allow it to recover. He will have further investigation upon his return to Australia but we remain confident he will be available for the start of the Sheffield Shield season.”

Since a dominant Test tour of India earlier this year, Smith’s return of runs has reduced significantly, and he has not made a century since that series. After the ODI series concluded, Smith noted that he had not always been as comfortable at the batting crease as he is used to, searching for his best grip on the bat, among other things.

“To be honest, I wasn’t feeling great at the start of the series, I wasn’t holding the bat the way I liked to and I was having a few issues there that I was working on,” Smith said in Nagpur after India completed a 4-1 series win. “But I think I’ve slowly found a nice tempo which I’m after. I would have loved to score a lot more runs.

“I’ve got myself in on a few occasions and not gone on to get the big runs that I previously have been. From that aspect, as the leader of the team, it’s been disappointing. But I guess sometimes that’s cricket. You have those periods where you’re not playing or getting the scores you really like.”

Apple stops signing iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11, making downgrades to pre-iOS 11 firmware impossible

Apple, as it usually does following the release of new versions of iOS, has stopped signing iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11. The company originally released iOS 11 last month and has since pushed two iterative bug fix updates to users.



Spigen TEKA RA200 Airpods Earhooks Cover

Now that Apple has stopped signing iOS 10.3.3, it’s seemingly impossible for users to return to pre-iOS 11 firmware. This means that if you’re currently on an earlier version of iOS and wish to stay there, be sure you don’t accidentally update as there’s no way to downgrade.

iOS 11 includes a host of new features and enhancements, such as an all-new Control Center design, a new Notification Center, and various other improvements. Following the release of iOS 11, Apple released iOS 11.0.1 with bug fixes and performance improvements. Then, just this week, Apple released iOS 11.0.2 targeted primarily at fixing call quality on select iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus devices.

If you’ve upgraded to iOS 11.0.2, you can still downgrade to iOS 11.0.1, but you can’t go back any more than that. Typically, when Apple stops signing older versions of iOS, it’s jailbreak users (or jailbreak hopefuls) who are affected the most.

Apple is currently beta testing iOS 11.1, which will likely be released sometime this month or next, perhaps with support for Apple Pay Cash.

Have you upgraded to iOS 11 yet or is there a specific reason you’re holding out? Let us know down in the comments.
