IPL 2019: MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina clicked with ‘sons of the soil’ ahead of MI clash

first_imgChennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his depute Suresh Raina on Wednesday posed for a special picture with the ground staff at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai ahead of their match against the home team in the Indian Premier League.Super Kings off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and Mumbai Indians bowling coach Zaheer Khan were also part of the picture which was posted by Chennai Super Kings on social media.”With the sons of soil! #WhistlePodu #Yellove #MIvCSK,” CSK captioned the post.With the sons of soil! #WhistlePodu #Yellove #MIvCSK pic.twitter.com/gAXBBz5sGeChennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) April 2, 2019Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians will lock horns at the Wankhede on Wednesday. CSK is the only unbeaten team in the tournament this season with 3 wins in three matches while Mumbai Indians have won just one out of their three games.On the morrow, Super Kings will hold the edge with Dhoni in rollicking form. The 37-year old former India captain hit a 46-ball 75 in their last game against Rajasthan Royals to singlehandedly lift his team from 27/3 to 175/5 at home.Chasing 176 for victory, Royals could not match up to Super Kings’ death bowling and Dhoni’s shrewd captaincy.Called the ‘Daddy’s Army’ for a host of over the hill cricketers in their arsenal, Super Kings have defied all odds to win the title last season and have continued their form this year in the opening exchanges.Mumbai Indians on the other hand, are over-dependent on openers Rohit and South African Quinton de Kock. The others have failed to get runs and need to step up.advertisementOn Wednesday, Mumbai will have the services of new recruit, West Indian fast bowler Alzarri Joseph, and can also play all rounder Ben Cutting in place of the Lasith Malinga who has looked lacklustre.In the spin department, Chennai have the edge too, with South African Imran Tahir and Ravindra Jadeja doing the job well after the power play.Also Read | Pakistan bans IPL 2019 broadcast, says India ‘harming’ cricket in the countryAlso Read | IPL 2019: Gracia Raina and Hinaya Singh bond as MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina look onAlso Read | When Dhoni bats, it is difficult for bowlers: RR skipper Ajinkya Rahanelast_img read more

Each year, the Institute honors individuals and organizations that are making significant contributions to urban communities in the areas of health, education, medical research, community service, and philanthropy. The funds raised at SportsBall support the Institute’s innovative community health education programs and research initiatives. Arthur Ashe founded the Institute in 1992, just two months before his death from AIDS, in response to the disproportionate amount of illness and death in urban communities from preventable diseases. Arthur knew that many of these diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, were the result of inadequate health care delivery systems, late detection, and insufficient health education.In 1992, Arthur Ashe established the Institute in partnership with SUNY Downstate, moved by the institution’s long history of serving immigrants and low-income Brooklyn residents, as well as its staff and faculty’s research. The Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health, located in multi-ethnic Brooklyn, collaborates with community members to design and conduct neighborhood-based interventions that address health conditions that disproportionately affect minorities. Recognizing the complexity of the economic and social determinants of health, the Institute partners with a wide variety of grassroots and institutional organizations to provide after-school science enrichment, outreach initiatives in trusted venues, and research and advocacy. Community Health Empowerment guides and unifies all of the Institute’s work.For additional information about SportsBall 2018 and the Arthur Ashe Institute for Urban Health, go to: www.arthurasheinstitute.org.last_img read more

Terrorism akin to cancer hurts India and Afghanistan Afghan diplomat

first_imgNew York: India and Afghanistan have been hurt by terrorism which is “like cancer” and threatens peace in the region, a top Afghan diplomat has said while appealing to the international community not to view his war-torn country as an isolated case. Speaking at an event organised at Asia Society here on Monday, National Security Adviser of Afghanistan Hamdullah Mohib said Pakistan talked about brotherhood and historical linkages but hardly shows any cooperation in combating terrorism.

Replying to a question on Afghanistan’s estimate of cooperation from Islamabad, the top diplomat said Pakistan is “always very nice, they speak about brotherhood, historical linkages and the likes but then all we see is terrorists coming our way and no brotherhood”. Mohib said India and Afghanistan were hurt by terrorism and both the countries have suffered a great deal. “We understand what the cost is that we are paying,” he said.

It is our problem today but it will soon be someone else’s problem once it’s no longer ours,” Mohib said. Referring to the Afghanistan-Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity (APAPPS), he said the plan stayed only on paper and did not get implemented. “There hasn’t been any action (on APAPPS) and there is no interest from Pakistan to implement it. There is no cooperation with Afghanistan in any aspect,” he said. Mohib said Afghanistan had diversified its trade from Pakistan, stressing that if it had not done so, the prices of the food items would have skyrocketed this year due to drought. “We have diversified into our northern route through Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan now and through Iran by Chabahar connecting to India. It has opened up opportunities for Afghanistan not only to increase our trade but also to give us more options for import. We had to do that,” he said. Mohib said the easiest and cheapest way for these trade routes for Afghanistan would have been through Pakistan but Islamabad has failed to act. “We have never seen any progress on action. And so until we see willingness to make action, we are not going to buy any more words from Pakistan,” he said. Mohib stressed that it was important that the international community does not view Afghanistan as an isolated case. “It’s an issue that is shared. We are taking the brunt of the issue here and making the sacrifices. If this were to end in Afghanistan – and not in the way that we would want it to be, which is a clear defeat of non-state actors and proxy groups – this precedent could start to haunt other countries in our immediate neighbourhood to begin with,” he said. On the issue of security in the region and terrorism, he said non-state actors were a “dangerous precedents to allow”. “A lot of countries think that because they have not been hit by non-state actors, it’s not their problem. Letting this precedent to be opens doors and opportunities for other groups to operate. “If one of these groups were to be successful, for whatever their objectives may be, it leaves the precedent for many others who are also part of that DNA,” he said.last_img read more

35K families in New Gurugram still do not have access to water

first_imgGurugram: Thirty-five thousand families in New Gurugram do not have access to water supply as pipelines have not been laid in these areas. Despite assurances given by the Gurugram metropolitan development authority (GMDA), the deadline is not being met due to various challenges. The families in the sectors are getting their water supply from tube wells and tankers.The Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) has promised to complete work on laying pipelines in the coming months, covering most of the new sectors between 58 and 115. However, the work in sectors 68-90 is still stuck due to hurdles related to land acquisition. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderTo provide piped water to new sectors, the development authority has already augmented the capacity of Chandu Budhera water treatment plant. “We have increased the capacity of Chandu Budhera plant; the increased capacity will be used to cater to only the new sectors. We have also raised the capacity of the water boosting station in Sector 51,” said a senior official from GMDA. The official further said that GMDA has a plan to set up a boosting station in Sector 72. But it would take around two and a half years to be built. Thus, initially, the Sector 51 boosting station will be used for supplying water to the new sectors.

Pipes for the first phase, comprising sectors along Golf Course Road Extension, are being laid. And according to officials, the supply will start in the mid of 2019. For sectors between 81 and 95, land acquisition has been completed for laying the pipelines. But Huda is yet to allow alternative plots to landowners, which may take a few more weeks. Also, the pipelines have to cross the railway tracks, for which GMDA officials are already in talks with the railways. “They had asked us to deposit Rs 15 crore. We have already approved Rs 6 crore, which will be given to them within the next week. They will need a month to complete their process and we will need another month after that to complete the pipe laying work. This phase should start getting piped water in the next two-three months,” said the senior official from GMDA.last_img read more
