  1. Another BJP Buffoon Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb raised eyebrows when he claimed that Internet is not something new but existed even during the Mahabharata period. "Internet and satellite communication had existed in the days of Mahabharata. Sanjaya (Dhritarashtra's charioteer) using the technology gave a detailed account and description to the blind king about the battle of Kurukshetra," said Tripura CM. He also added that entire country became familiar with the world of technology after Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed power. "Our prime minister himself is active on social networking sites and he asks the MPs and even chief ministers about their status and comments on these sites. We are lucky enough to get a guardian-like prime minister," Deb said. The Tripura Chief Minister was speaking at a Regional Workshop on Computerisation and Reforms at Pragna Bhawan in Agartala on Tuesday.
  2. The BCCI has zeroed in on 23 national team hopefuls, whose workload will be strictly monitored during the ongoing Indian Premier League. These 23 players are the ones who are not in the BCCI's Central Contract list which has elite internationals such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni. From Under-19 talents such as Prithvi Shaw and Shivam Mavi to last domestic season's top run-getter Mayank Agarwal, the list includes all those whom the selection committee found worthy of national or A team call-up in the near future. "The basic plan was to divide the players into three groups. The first group comprises current U-19s. The second group is of old U-19s, where we have players who played U-19 India in last 3 to 4 years. And the third group is of current India A Players," a senior BCCI office bearer told PTI on conditions of anonymity. The BCCI wants to keep a strict vigil on these players primarily because in a tight schedule like IPL, with so much travelling and lack of time between matches, the workload becomes paramount. "Let me give you an example. Young fast bowlers like Shivam Mavi or a Navdeep Saini may be asked by their franchise coaches to bowl 60 to 100 deliveries during a training session to Chris Lynn or AB de Villiers since they may not be certainties in playing XI. "Here the BCCI steps in. These youngsters are our assets. A Bhuvneshwar Kumar knows his body and workload but when it comes to Mavi, Navdeep or Avesh (Khan), it's our duty to protect them for greater interest of Indian cricket," the office bearer said. So the training programme that these fast bowlers will follow is chalked out by the NCA trainers and physio. The trainers and physios of all eight franchises are also needed to give an update to NCA regarding the workload management of all these players. It is learnt that someone like Bengal's Abhimanyu Easwaran is not in the list as he is not playing IPL but is certainly in radar for India A's tour of England. The following players (outside Central Contract) are being specially monitored by BCCI. Current U-19s: Prithvi Shaw, Shubman Gill, Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti. Old U19s: Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Avesh Khan, Khaleel Ahmed, Sanju Samson. Domestic, India A: Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar, Vijay Shankar, Jaydev Unadkat, Basil Thampi, Deepak Hooda, Mayank Agarwal, Ravikumar Samarth, Navdeep Saini, Siddarth Kaul, Hanuma Vihari, Ankit Bawne.

  6. Good chance for Prasidh Krishna. But will he be selected in the main XI?
  7. The Kolkata Knight Riders have received another blow in the 2018 IPL, with U-19 star Kamlesh Nagarkoti’s injury. Karnataka fast bowler Prasidh Krishna will replace Nagarkoti for the rest of the tournament. KKR spent Rs 3.2 crore for the 19-year-old, but his foot injury has made KKR’s bowling even weaker. They first lost Australian pacer Mitchell Starc to tibial bone stress; even Mitchell Johnson was seen on the sidelines in their clash against Chennai Super Kings. R Vinay Kumar gave 19 runs in 5 balls in the last over against CSK when they needed 17 to win the match, indicating their need to reinforce the bowling lineup. But it appears as though the Kolkata team will have to hope for the 18-year-old Prasidh to put on a good show. After the CSK defeat, Dinesh Karthik was confident that he has enough ammunition in terms of fast bowling talent. However, after Vinay Kumar’s run leak in the last over, he might not be as confident any more. .
  8. Who is Markandey??

    Has a decent List-A avg as well.
  9. The Punjab government on Thursday told the Supreme Court that its own minister Navjot Singh Sidhu should serve three years in jail in a 30-year-old road rage case as ordered by the Punjab and Haryana high court. Sidhu had hit Gurnam Singh, 65, on the head during an argument on a road in Patiala on December 27, 1988. Singh had died in hospital of a haemorrhage. The high court had held Sidhu guilty and sentenced him to three years in jail in 2006, but the Supreme Court had suspended the sentence a year later and granted him bail, allowing him to contest elections. The Congress government in Punjab asked the Supreme Court to uphold Sidhu's conviction and set aside the bail, saying that the HC verdict was correct. Counsel for Punjab government told a bench of Justices J Chelameswar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul that Gurnam Singh had died of brain hemorrhage, and not cardiac arrest, after being struck by Sidhu. “There is not a single evidence that suggest that the cause of death was cardiac arrest and not brain hemorrhage. The trial court verdict was rightly set aside by the High Court. Sidhu had given a fiesty blow to deceased Gurnam Singh leading to his death through brain hemorrhage," the state government counsel told the bench. Punjab Congress leaders backed the counsel’s stand, saying that the state prosecution had taken this position in the Punjab & Haryana High Court and could not back out now. “The state government followed the rule of the law in the Supreme Court and has left the apex court to judge the matter on merit,” a party leader said. Drawing a contrast to UP, where the Yogi Adityanath government is facing accusations of shielding MLA Kuldeep Singh in a rape case, he said that the Congress government has upheld the law of the land in this case, as it has done in every case since taking charge in Punjab. “Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh has always maintained that his government will strictly uphold the law and will not interfere in judicial matters. The same principle was stringently adhered to, in the present case,” he said.
