Anand in joint lead after round 4 of London Classic

first_imgWorld Champion Viswanathan Anand beat Nigel Short of England to enter into joint lead with another Englishman Luke McShane, post fourth round play of London Chess Classic at the Olympia in London on Sunday.Celebrating his birthday in style, Anand threw caution to the winds against former World Championship challenger Short.Englishman McShane yet again survived some anxious moments in the tournament to draw with compatriot Michael Adams to remain in joint lead with the Indian.Magnus Carlsen of Norway and Vladimir Kramnik of Russia also secured victories at the expense of Hikaru Nakamura of the United States and David Howell of England respectively.With just three rounds to go in the eight-player roundrobin tournament, Anand and McShane have eight points each in the football-like scoring system in place at the tournament and they lead Kramnik by a point.Magnus Carlsen is on fourth position with six points while Hikaru Nakamura is sharing the fifth spot with Michael Adams. Howell is on two points, a full point clear of back- ranker Nigel Short.The game against Short saw fortunes fluctuating a few times. The Grand-Prix attack as white against the Sicilian by the English met some original play by Anand and the Indian ace was on top with some finely crafted moves leading to slightly better prospect in the ensuing middle game.Short erred and was saddled with a passive but tenable position and he continued working for counter play that Anand eventually allowed.Short may have been on top towards the end of the game but earlier mistakes had eaten a lot of time on his clock.advertisementThinking that it was winning, Short uncorked a combination with a piece sacrifice that boomeranged in no time as Anand had seen the perfect riposte. Short fell on his sword allowing a checkmate to end matters soon after.Kramnik built up a steady advantage against David Howell who employed the Grunfeld defence with black pieces. The Russian opened up the king side for his rooks to infiltrate and though wasn’t easy to make further progress, Kramnik showcased his deep understanding following a liquidation.In his final execution, Kramnik established his rook on the seventh rank and his bishop started firing too. It was all over pretty soon.McShane made a quiet opening as Adams gradually assumed the initiative. In the middle- game, Adams established his queen and rook on the seventh rank but Luke had a tactical trick to swap the queens and relieve the pressure.Further exchanges were made and the game eventually came down to an oppositecoloured bishop endgame and the draw was a just result.Carlsen opted for the English Opening and faced a sort of Dutch Defence against Hikaru Nakamura. Carlsen parted his Bishop for a knight and it looked as if Nakamura will be safe. However, as the game unfolded, Carlsen’s pressure told on both flanks and through a pretty tactical sequence he won a pawn and brought the game to an end with his immaculate technique.In the open tournament being played simultaneously, Indian International Master Sahaj Grover suffered a defeat at the hands of top seeded Boris Avrukh of Israel.The best Indian bet in the fray, former world junior champion Abhijeet Gupta won his game against Rafael Rodriguez Lopez of Spain while Saptarshi Roy Chowdhury played out a draw with lower ranked opponent.- With PTI inputslast_img read more

ICC World Twenty20: New Zealand spinners condemn India to 47-run defeat

first_imgKane Williamson’s gamble to compromise on speed and pick three specialist spinners paid off as New Zealand humbled hosts India by 47 runs in a spin-dominated Super 10 contest of the World Twenty20 on Tuesday. (Scorecard|Photos)Opting to bat first, New Zealand posted 126-7 in the Group Two contest on a prodigiously turning track at Nagpur’s VCA Stadium, seemingly a below-par total against the host nation who are famed for their proficiency against spin bowling. (Here’s how India lost nine wickets to New Zealand spinners in shocking defeat) New Zealand’s three-pronged spin attack, however, ensured it was more than enough as Mitchell Santner (4-11), Nathan McCullum (2-15) and the Indian-born Ish Sodhi (3-18) wrecked the hosts who folded for 79 in 18.1 overs.Williamson said it was not an easy decision to drop the pace duo of Tim Southee and Trent Boult to accommodate the spinners.”Obviously that was tough, they are world class bowlers,” the Kiwi captain said.”But at the same time we are looking to do the best we can in these conditions. Certainly the spinners paid off today. The wicket spun a lot and they bowled very well on it.”The first three balls of the match contained the kind of drama and excitement that fans would be expecting from the sixth edition of the tournament in cricket’s emotional and financial home in India.After Williamson won the toss and decided to set a target, Martin Guptill nonchalantly hit the first delivery from Ravichandran Ashwin over the bowler’s head for a six.advertisementThe off-spinner settled score in the very next ball, trapping the batsman leg before with a delivery that, replay suggested, would have gone over the stumps.New man in Colin Munro reverse hit the next ball for a six but threw his wicket in the next over.As wickets kept tumbling at the other end, Corey Anderson (34) tried to steady the innings and it was Luke Ronchi’s (21 not out) 11-ball cameo that took them past the 125-mark.The Indian fans expected the chase to be a stroll in the park but Santner, who was adjudged man-of-the-match, and McCullum had other ideas.They blew away India’s top order, reducing them to 26-4 in the fifth over to derail their chase.Virat Kohli (23) resisted the onslaught for a while but Sodhi struck a crucial blow with his very first ball to send back the Indian batting mainstay.Home captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni waged a lone battle with a run-a-ball 30 but the celebrated ‘finisher’ could not get his team over the line.New Zealand beat India at their own game with their spinners claiming nine of the 10 wickets but Dhoni insisted the defeat was more down to his team’s careless batting.”It was our batting that let us down,” the home captain said after India’s fifth futile attempt to beat New Zealand in Twenty20 Internationals.”There were quite a few soft dismissals. It was not like the deliveries got a lot of batsmen out. Maybe it was our shot selection… there was no partnership also,” Dhoni rued.last_img read more

Esha Gupta to Anushka Sharma: Bollywood’s love affair with sports

first_imgSportpersons and actors have always been given celebrity status in our country, and it is no surprise that people from one profession dates someone from the other. Living similar lives under the public gaze, the two professions have been drawn to each other for years, from Sharmila Tagore-Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi to Zeenat Aman-Imran Khan.SEE PICS: Virat Kohli celebrates birthday with ladylove Anushka SharmaSEE PICS: Lovebirds Yuvraj Singh and Hazel Keech on a dinner date A few weeks ago, actor Esha Gupta was snapped with Arsenal football player Hector Bellerin on a dinner date in London, sparking rumours of a romance. Esha, a self-confessed Arsenal fan, cheered for her favourite club from the stands and even took to Instagram to share pictures from the match. But it was her date with Hector that made headlines, with rumour mills going into overdrive about the Rustom actor and Arsenal defender’s relationship. Esha cleared the air to Mid-Day, “I am single and not dating Hector. Everyone knows I am a big Arsenal fan and I was in London to watch a match. After the game, I met Hector and a few other players. We clicked a few photographs. Later, he asked me out to dinner and I said, yes. It was a fun evening and we had a good time together.”Although Esha and Hector may not be dating, here are some other actor-sportsperson couples who are painting the town red.Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli’s love blossomed during the shooting of a shampoo commercial. At the top of their game in their careers, they are one of the most-loved couples. When fans trolled the actor for Virat’s not-so-top-notch performance at the 2016 World Cup, Virat stood up for his ladylove and slammed detractors. The actor-cricketer couple briefly parted ways due to differences, but then decided to give their relationship a second chance. Anushka flew down to Rajkot to be with her man for his birthday earlier this month, and all is well in their paradise.advertisementHazel Keech and Yuvraj Singh Hazel Keech, who has acted in films like Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan-starrer Bodyguard, has found the man of her dreams in cricketer Yuvraj Singh. The two, who got engaged in Bali last year, are set to tie the knot this December. Yuvi revealed on a TV show that he had asked Hazel out, but she was not interested in him back then. He finally got a date with her through a mutual friend, after a year of pursuing. Yuvraj’s mom Shabnam is also all praise for her bahu-to-be, even calling Hazel a reflection of herself. Here’s wishing the hot couple a life of marital bliss!Geeta Basra and Harbhajan Singh Geeta Basra and spinner Harbahjan Singh initially claimed to be only “good friends,” but later came out in the open about their relationship. The couple, who had a hush-hush start in 2007, tied the knot last year, after eight years of courtship. Bhajji revealed in an interview post-marriage that it was love at first sight for him and he wanted to meet The Train actor after seeing her in a song and being smitten by her. The couple became proud parents of a baby girl earlier this year.last_img read more

Ex-Australia cricketers differ on ways to tackle the Virat Kohli threat

first_imgVirat Kohli may have been Australian cricket’s public enemy No.1 for a while now but experts in the country believe it is time to be nice and friendly to the India captain once the Test series gets underway from December 6.Kohli was involved in two of the most acrimonious Test series between India and Australia. In 2014-15, Kohli and Mitchell Johnson were involved in heated verbal exchanges – Kohli responded with four hundreds in four Tests. Two years later, Kohli was furious with Steve Smith’s decision to seek dressing-room help over the Decision Review System (DRS). Tensions between the two captains remained high throughout the series. By the end of the final Test in Dharamsala, Kohli declared he would no longer want to stay friends with Australian cricketers.However, the feisty India captain later clarified that his comments were reserved for only a couple of Australian players.With Smith and David Warner unavailable to take on India in the four-Test series due to the ball-tampering bans, many former cricketers believe India have the upper hand. Kohli has been in sensational form since the beginning of 2016 and he has a great record in Australia: 992 runs including 5 hundreds in 8 Tests.This series is likely to be played in much better spirit. For starters, a review of Australia’s cricket culture has forced the players to mellow down. Coach Justin Langer wants his men to make Australians proud with their cricket and tone down the verbal assault. Many ex Australia cricketers do not seem to agree with the ‘Be nice, be good’ diktat but Dean Jones believes it would be dangerous to irk Kohli who has promised to retaliate in the event Australia decide to sledge his team.advertisement”Do not talk or provoke him. Make him your best mate,” Jones told the Sydney Morning Herald.Jones said there was no visible weakness in Kohli’s game – the India captain is the leading run scorer in Tests as well as ODIs this year with a string of hundreds in South Africa and England while his other colleagues failed.”Trying to find a weakness in Kohli’s game is like trying to find something wrong with the Mona Lisa. Teams must stop his cover drive and bowl in different areas.”At the start of Kohli’s innings, quicks need to bowl at a fourth-stump line and make him play on the back foot. Do not give him width and length outside off-stump.”Bowlers must try to set him up with short stuff first and then the odd wide ball on the drive to find the edge. Slips and gully stay on high alert.”But then there are others like Kim Hughes, who feel Australia need to get under Kohli’s skin to try and unsettle him.”You are not going to become pussycats. That’s not racially vilifying him (Kohli) at all or anything like that but just a good stare, or a couple of words, that’s part of the Australian way. Most blokes’ nicknames are usually when you have a stuff-up, not when you have a had a glorious moment,” Hughes told the Sydney Morning Herald. “If he (Kohli) is not the best player in the world, he is in the final two or three … I think he is the best player in the world. When you have 1.2 billion people in the world supporting you and expecting you to do well, there is a fair bit of pressure. He is the type of player that you would feel as an opposition that you could get under his skin.”Also Read | Virat Kohli not underestimating Australia without Steve Smith and David WarnerAlso Read | Australia cricketers tend to break fine line between cheating and gamesmanship: GavaskarAlso Read | Michael Clarke wants Tim Paine’s team to ‘play tough Australian cricket’ vs IndiaAlso Read | Less verbals but more bouncers from Australia: Ian Chappell warns Virat Kohli’s Indialast_img read more

Virat Kohli on rivalry with Mohammad Amir: Not focussed on individual competition

first_img Next India Today Web Desk ManchesterJune 15, 2019UPDATED: June 15, 2019 18:27 IST ICC World Cup 2019, India vs Pakistan: Virat Kohli said he is not focussed on individual competition (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli spoke to the press on the eve of India vs Pakistan in ManchesterKohli said he doesn’t focus on individual competition with opposition playersMohammad Amir has been in good form in the lead up to india vs PakistanIndia captain Virat Kohli refused to get drawn into talks over rivalry with Pakistan pacer Mohammad Amir on the eve of the much-anticipated ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match between the two neighbors.Speaking to the press in Manchester on Saturday, Kohli said he is not going to say anything sensational about Mohammad Amir for “TRPs or exciting news” and added that he is always willing to respect a good bowler’s skillset.Virat Kohli was dismissed by Mohammed Amir during the final of Champions Trophy 2017 between India and Pakistan in London. Kohli’s early dismissal pegged India back in their chase of 339. India eventually lost the big final by 180 runs.Amir is expected to play a big role for Pakistan when they take on India in Manchester in their 7th World Cup meeting. Amir hit peak form just ahead of the India match when he broke the back of Australia’s middle order and picked up 5-wicket haul vs the defending champions on July 12.In what is expected to be overcast conditions in Manchester on Sunday, Pakistan would be hoping Amir will recreate the magic of the Champions Trophy final.”I am not going to say anything for different for TRPs or for exciting news. You have to respect every bowler’s strength. I just focus on the white ball or the red ball, regardless of the bowler. You have to respect a good bowler’s skillset. I said this even before the South Africa match about Kagiso Rabada,” Virat Kohli said when he was asked to comment on Mohammad Amir.advertisementKohli added: “Impact bowlers are there in world cricket. We have to be wary of their strength but at the same time focus on my strength to score runs.”It’s not like if he [Amir] takes a wicket or I score runs, the match result is going to be decided. There are going to be 10 other players. All of them have to play well. I don’t think I am in a competition with anyone, that’s all talks from the outside. This kind of competition doesn’t even cross my mind. If you play badly against a bowler, you will get out. It’s that simple for me.”Pakistan have a potent pace attack that has Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali, and the young left-arm pacer Shaheen Afridi. Speaking to India Today ahead of the World Cup 2019 match between India and Pakistan, batting great Sachin Tendulkar had said India need to wary of Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz threat on Sunday.”Rohit [Sjharma] and Virat are the 2 more experienced players in the lineup and Pakistan would be focussing on getting them early without any doubt as that opens the game for them. Amir and Wahab Riaz will definitely target their wickets early on. But Rohit and Virat should also be looking to play long innings. the plan should be that the rest of the guys play around them,” Sachin Tendulkar said.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

DR Congo Security Council underscores need to bring killers of UN experts

The experts, Michael Sharp of the United States and Zaida Catalan of Sweden were abducted in the country on 12 March. Their remains were found outside the city of Kananga in the DRC’s Kasaï-Central province by UN peacekeepers two weeks later. In a statement read out by Ambassador Sebastiano Cardi of Italy, which holds the Council’s presidency for the month of November, the 15-member body also encouraged the Group of Experts, of which Mr. Sharp and Ms. Catalan were members, to consider, within its current mandate and in cooperation with relevant actors, including national authorities, issues related to illicit financial activity, including money laundering operations, supporting the activities of armed groups and criminal networks involved in destabilizing activities in the African nation. “In that regard, the Security Council welcomes the decisions of the International Conference of the Great Lakes Region [in October] on the fight against illegal exploitation of natural resources in the Great Lakes region and encourages member States to further increase cooperation in fighting illegal exploitation and trade of natural resources, including gold or wildlife,” read the statement. The Security Council further encouraged the Group of Experts to work with UN Member States and relevant international organizations, such as the UN International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA), so they can produce recommendations to streamline and enhance the control of unwrought gold transported in carry-on luggage. Also in the statement, the Council warned against attacks on the UN Mission in the country (known by its French acronym, MONUSCO), UN entities, and their associated personnel, including the Group of Experts, and reiterated its readiness to designate individuals and groups responsible for attacks for sanctions. read more

MegaUpload qui va payer pour la récupération des fichiers

first_imgMegaUpload : qui va payer pour la récupération des fichiers ?La MPAA (Motion Picture Association of Amrica) a assoupli sa position sur la récupération des fichiers depuis MegaUpload. Mais cette récupération coûte cher et les autorités américaines refusent de payer l’addition.Depuis la fermeture du site en janvier, les utilisateurs espèrent pouvoir récupérer leurs fichiers stockés légalement sur la plateforme de MegaUpload. C’est notamment le cas d’un journaliste américain, Kyle Godwin qui utilisait le site pour stoker ses reportages. Ce dernier, soutenu par l’Electronic Frontier Foundation, avait porté plainte en mars après avoir perdu une grande partie de ses données.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Mais pour les autorités américaines : “le gouvernement des Etats-Unis n’est pas en possession des biens de M. Goodwin, et ne cherche pas à les confisquer. En deux mots, les autorités américaines ne considèrent pas la saisie de MegaUpload par le FBI comme responsable de la perte des données. Cette dernière serait dûe aux pratiques commerciales de MegaUpload et Carpathia. « La raison pour laquelle la perte financière ne constitue pas un préjudice irréparable, c’est que M. Goodwin a un recours juridique pour les récupérer » explique Neil MacBride, le procureur général en charge du dossier. « Si MegaUpload (en ne préservant pas les données sur les serveurs loués) ou Carphathia (en mettant fin à la location et en choisissant de bloquer l’accès aux serveurs) n’ont pas respecté leurs contrats avec M. Goodwin, il peut les poursuivre pour obtenir compensation. » Cette récupération de données prend donc des tournures compliquées. D’autant plus que Carpathia aimerait pouvoir effacer les 25 pétaoctets de données. En effet, ces dernières lui coûtent actuellement 9.000 dollars par jour à préserver et ce depuis que MegaUpload n’a plus les moyens de racheter les 1.013 serveurs sur lesquelles elles sont stockées.Le 12 juin 2012 à 16:15 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more
