Shikhar Dhawan mocks R Ashwin responds to Mankad warning with a bizarre

first_imgAshwin’s picture was shredded by James Anderson.Ravichandran Ashwin Instagram Shikhar Dhawan performed a few bizarre moves as a response to Ravichandran Ashwin’s ‘Mankading’ warning when Delhi Capitals took on Kings XI Punjab in an Indian Premier League clash on Saturday, April 20. The match at Feroz Shah Kotla featured the teams ranked three and four on the points table, thus the stakes were pretty high. Punjab batted first and scored 163 in their 20 overs and in response, Delhi made a solid start to reach 108 runs for the loss of the solitary wicket of young Prithvi Shaw in the 13th over. After two balls of the over had been bowled, Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer was on strike and Ashwin was the bowler. The skipper of KXIP, instead of delivering the ball, stopped his run-up immediately as reached the popping crease, gave a glance at an advancing Dhawan at the non-striker’s end and went back to the start of his mark to bowl the next delivery. This was the second non-verbal warning of the match for Dhawan as he had earlier wandered well outside his crease in the 12th over. On that occasion, Murugan Ashwin warned the Delhi batsman. Ashwin gave a Mankad warning to Dhawan.Hotstar ScreengrabDhawan, not one to back away from a challenge, proceeded to do a stretch after planting his bat inside the crease as Ashwin returned to his bowling mark. But what took the cake and got a massive applause was when the Delhi batsman pulled out some of his nightclub moves. As Ashwin was delivering the third ball of the over, Dhawan — with bat inside the crease at the non-striker’s end — gyrated his hips and shook his entire body with eyes fixed on the bowler. “That was great to watch, the crowd also joining in. They are watching all this — fun games,” said Sanjay Manjrekar on commentary as fellow commentator Lisa Sthalekar could be heard laughing hysterically in the background. “This is a nice little byplay between the two. But you can sense that this is a crucial moment [in the match]. Yeah, he [Dhawan’s] not going to make the mistake [of leaving his crease] again,” said Sthalekar. “He’s done a twist from the ’60s,” concluded Manjrekar as replays of Dhawan’s odd, yet adorable, dance moves were shown in the replays. Dhawan played a handy knock of 56 in the match as he helped Delhi chase down the score with two balls to spare. The India international was dismissed by Hardus Viljoen and incidentally, it was Ashwin who took a fantastic catch, running to his left. After Dhawan’s dismissal, it was skipper Shreyas Iyer who took charge and saw his side home courtesy a man of the match performance. With that victory, Delhi moved to 12 points from 10 games and consolidated their third-place position on the points table. The capital franchise will face Rajasthan Royals in their next game at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on April 22.last_img read more

Reliance BP line up Rs 9750 crore fund to develop six satellite

first_img[Representative image]. REUTERS/Nerijus Adomaitis/File PhotoOil-to-telecoms conglomerate Reliance Industries (RIL) partnered UK-based BP to invest about Rs 9,750 crore ($1.5 billion) to develop six satellite gas fields in the Krishna Godavari Dhirubhai 6 (KG-D6) block by 2022.Earlier on Monday, both the companies submitted the field development plans to the office of Directorate General of Hydrocarbons (DGH), sources aware of the development told news agency PTI.RIL and BP plan to develop four deep sea satellite gas finds — D-2, D-6, D-19 and D-22 — in the Krishna Godavari basin block. Overall 5-6 gas producing wells will be drilled, which will be later attached to production facilities.The peak output is expected in the range between 10 to 12 million standard cubic meters per day (mmscmd), the company said in a statement. “The four satellites and the two other satellite finds (D29 and D30), R-Series and MJ gas discoveries, are the ones on which RIL and BP had in mid-June this year announced investing Rs 40,000 crore to reserve the flagging production from KG-D6 block,” PTI reported.Development of the six satellite finds will be conducted together, while D-34 or R-Series and D-55 (MJ) would have separate development plans, sources said.Earlier in 2012, the government had approved a Rs 9,750 crore ($ 1.5 billion) plan to drill out 10.36 million standard cubic meters per day of gas from four satellite fields of the block by 2016-17.According to the report, the four fields have 617 billion cubic feet of reserves and can approximately produce gas for next eight years.The companies do not want to change the investment plan for D-34 or R-Series gas field in the same block, which was earlier approved in August 2013, the report said.

How Some Teachers Students In Texas Are Responding To PresidentElect Trump

first_img X 00:00 /02:35 Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: The morning after Election Day, Montessori teacher Gina Applegate was greeting her students. Then one of her fourth graders arrived in tears. He sat in a bean bag and covered his face with his hoodie.Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016“He was sobbing, sobbing,” Applegate recounted. “When I went to ask him what’s the matter, he was inconsolable in that initial moment.”Applegate encouraged the 9-year-old to write down what was bothering him. Later he handed her a card. He wrote: “I am scared because Trump hates people of color like me and that is why I’m scared.”Applegate wrote her student, who is biracial, back.“I said, ‘I understand your fear, but there is hope because there are many people who care for all the different colors of people and you have the power in you to teach tolerance and show the world compassion. I’ll be there by your side. We’re in this together,” she read.Later she gathered the whole class at the private Montessori school north of Austin for a conversation about the election. She said they had already discussed different ways to hold elections around the world, but they revisited the Electoral College. Above all, Applegate said that she wants her students to understand different points of view and express their feelings — without a debate contest with winners and losers.It’s the kind of conversation that’s played out in schools across Texas following Election Day 2016.In Houston, Anastasia Anderson leads two charters, called Promise Community Schools. Many students are from all over the world, including Mexico, Pakistan and Syria. She says many children from kindergarten to eighth grade asked questions this week.“They’re questions like ‘Are we going to be sent back to our home countries? Why did such a mean man get a elected?” Anderson said. “Some are questioning, “Is it OK to talk about women the way we’ve heard women talked about?”Some students expressed fear about a wall between the United States and Mexico or being Muslim.Anderson said that it’s hard to answer the questions. Trump has maintained that his policies like a building wall with Mexico will make America better.On campus, Anderson wanted to give students a place where they could talk and express their feelings in a safe environment.  So they gathered in circles.“We did ask our teachers to spend some time if the students want to talk, listen to them. If they want to play, if they want to dance, if they want to express themselves and let off some steam, because this election has been such a stressful one, allow that to be,” she explained.Anderson said that they also used the election results as a teaching moment  to reinforce how the U.S. government works – that no one person runs it, but rather several branches.She added that the election has reinforced another lesson for teachers.“We’re preparing our next set of adults for the electoral process that they will go through and it’s so important that they be able to handle it responsibly when they become adults,” she said.center_img Courtesy Gina ApplegateMontessori teacher Gina Applegate received this note from a student troubled by the election.

Fans Expected Game Seven For Astros

first_img Share The Astros seem to be in the forefront of many people’s mind in Houston. Kyle O’Leary says that’s good for the city. “Even if Harvey hadn’t hit it’s good for the city. I think it makes everybody feel better about Houston.” And from a baseball strategy perspective, O’Leary is confident that Game Six, despite the loss, sets up the Astros for victory tonight. “[The Dodgers] Threw a bunch of pitchers last night, and every time their bullpen has been shelled, it’s been after a back-to-back game.” O’Leary is right. In the three World Series games that followed a previous game without a day off for the players, the Astros have scored 14 runs in 15.1 innings against the vaunted LA bullpen.And while the Astro players say they’ll give it everything they’ve got tonight, there are still those fans that feel they have more to do with the outcome than the guys in uniform.Doug Brown says after watching last night’s loss, he won’t dare watch tonight. “If I watch it again, they’ll probably lose.”Dodger Stadium, the third oldest ballpark in Major League baseball, opened in 1962. Tonight will be the first time it has hosted a World Series Game Seven. First pitch is 7:20 PM. The Los Angeles Dodgers forced a Game Seven with a 3-1 victory over the Astros Tuesday night. So, one of the more exciting World Series in history will require seven games to crown a champion.“Seems like it was kinda destined to go seven anyway you know? Crazy as it’s been,” says Blake Benton, who watched Game Six and says he’ll be thinking about Game Seven all day. “It’s gonna be hard to concentrate, it was hard to concentrate yesterday.”Justin Verlander suffered the loss, his first as an Astro.Facing a seventh and final game, the Astros, like most fans are ready for a win tonight.last_img read more
