Subprime Mortgage Originations Rise During First Five Months of Year

first_img in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Origination Lenders across the U.S. appear to be offering borrowers a second chance at obtaining a mortgage by originating more subprime mortgages for borrowers with credit scores under 620.Equifax’s recent National Consumer Credit Trends Report found that subprime mortgage originations soared higher during the first five months of 2015.First mortgages, home equity installment (HE) loans, and home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) all experienced an uptick in subprime originations compared to the same period last year. The amount of first mortgage originations to borrowers with subprime credit scores increased 30.5 percent, HE loans rose 29.5 percent, and HELOCs rose 20.4 percent.”It appears that American lenders still believe in second chances, and without subprime loans, there would be no second chances in the housing market.” Equifax explained that although subprime orginations are rising, overall, these originations are only a small portion of total originations across the mortgage lending sector. Additionally, the subprime origination numbers remain below figure seen before the Great Recession.HELOCs lending is slower than some of the other options, the report noted. Only 7,800 of the 525,000 HELOCs originated in the first five months of 2015 were considered subprime.”The data make it very clear that almost nobody is getting HELOCs if they don’t have a credit score above 620,” said Amy Crews Cutts, chief economist at Equifax. “But we are seeing a rise in first mortgage and home equity installment loan origination subprime shares.”She added, “It appears that American lenders still believe in second chances, and without subprime loans, there would be no second chances in the housing market. The underwriting on mortgages today is tough on everyone and we believe that the subprime lending that is happening is being underwritten even more carefully.”The data also found that lenders are working to reduce risk involved with subprime mortgage originations.”Despite the continuing rise in overall subprime originations, banks are still greatly limiting their high-risk exposure,” Cutts said. “The credit score of the borrower at the 10th percentile of newly originated first mortgages today is 650. For HELOCs, it’s 700. Looking back to the start of 2006, the credit score of the 10th percentile loan was 575 for a first mortgage and 645 for HELOCs. I think we are still a long way from the Goldilocks level of ‘just right.'”Key data on subprime originations from the Equifax National Consumer Credit Trends Report:Of the 3.26 million first mortgages originated year-to-date through May, 143,800 – or 4.6 percent – were issued to consumer with an Equifax Risk Score below 620.Of the more than 280,700 HE loans originated year-to-date, 30,900 – or 1.5 percent – went to those with low credit scores.As HE installment loan originations rose 22.4 from a year ago and surged to their highest level since 2008, subprime originations also jumped sharply, by 29.5 percent. The average origination loan amount of a new subprime HE loan also climbed, hitting $22,455 in May 2015 – up 11.6 percent from May 2014.Click here to view Equifax’s National Consumer Credit Trends Report, Subprime Mortgage Originations Rise During First Five Months of Year September 23, 2015 494 Views center_img Share Credit Scores Equifax Lenders Subprime Mortgage Origination 2015-09-23 Staff Writerlast_img read more

An array of voices Five highlights from the Polar

first_imgAn array of voices: Five highlights from the Polaris Music Prize short list by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 17, 2018 7:14 am PDT Last Updated Jul 17, 2018 at 10:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Daniel Caesar performs at the Juno Awards in Vancouver, Sunday, March 25, 2018. Performers singing in at least five languages are among this year’s diverse selection of Polaris Music Prize nominees. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck center_img TORONTO – A dizzying array of musicians from distinctly different backgrounds round out this year’s selection of Polaris Music Prize nominees.Ten contenders were revealed for the $50,000 award, which goes to the best album from a Canadian artist or band. Among them is “Antisocialites” the second release from dream pop band Alvvays and “Freudian,” the breakout debut by R&B singer Daniel Caesar.Others on the short list include operatic tenor Jeremy Dutcher’s “Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa,” where he duets with recordings captured in the Wolastoq language over a century ago and a punchy effort from rock band Weaves.The Polaris winner is chosen by a large team of journalists, broadcasters and bloggers, irrespective of genre or sales, and will be announced on Sept. 18 at a gala presentation held at Toronto’s Carlu. A webcast will be hosted by CBC Music.Here’s a look at several highlights from the full list of nominees:CAESAR’S REIGN: Rarely does a performer soar to the heights of Daniel Caesar in less than a year, but the Oshawa, Ont.-raised R&B singer’s debut “Freudian” was received like few other albums in recent memory. Its tender, soulful tracks created buzz on streaming music services before it captured the hearts of Grammy voters — scoring two nominations at the most recent awards show. The singer, born Ashton Simmonds, also sold out five nights in Toronto last December, making it seem like he almost came out of nowhere for many music listeners. His rise proves that while his fan base might be under the radar, but his music certainly isn’t.INDIGENOUS HISTORY: Two potent albums on the Polaris list dig up archival recordings from very different sources to spotlight for the damage levelled on Indigenous communities over the years. The Snotty Nose Rez Kids, a Vancouver-based duo, draw on audio samples from cartoons and Oprah’s talk show to provide a framework for their raps about racism in Canada on “The Average Savage.” Jeremy Dutcher’s debut album, “Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa,” finds parallels between the trained operatic singer’s voice and audio captured nearly a century ago of his ancestors. Dutcher, who was raised partly in the Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, sings the album entirely in the endangered Wolastoq language in hopes of preserving its roots.QUEBECOIS PRESENCE: Sounds from la belle province this year showcase a thriving community that can’t be pinned to one genre. The pensive and insular second album from pianist Jean-Michel Blais, “Dans ma main,” was recorded almost entirely between the hours of 9 p.m. and 3 a.m. Bursts of glam rock and sometimes jovial French pop carry Hubert Lenoir’s “Darlene,” an album that mainly tells the story of a young woman who falls for an American guy who visits Quebec City with a plan to commit suicide by jumping from Montmorency Falls. Congolese-Canadian Pierre Kwenders takes a totally different path on “Makanda at the End of Space, the Beginning of Time,” a punchy album sung in four languages and flavoured with inspirations from hip hop, electronic, and Afropop music.STONER ANTHEMS: Whether it’s singing about marijuana or playing into the dreamy world it inspires, a number of Polaris nominees find themes appropriately timed to the legalization of marijuana, set for this fall. Indie grunge duo Partner, from Sackville, N.B., open their debut album “In Search of Lost Time” with the song “Everybody Knows,” all about paranoid weed smokers, while Toronto pop rockers Alvvays drift into their own fantasies on “Antisocialites,” a collection of jangly guitar tracks led by singer Molly Rankin’s mesmerizing voice. It’s the second time the band has been up for the Polaris prize, after their 2014 debut scored a nomination as well.BACK AGAIN: Other contenders this year have experienced the embrace of the Polaris jury before, including Toronto-based expat Meghan Remy, who performs as U.S. Girls. She was in the running two years ago and returns with her 2018 album “In A Poem Unlimited,” a collaborative effort with other local musicians that explores the nuances of gender and politics. Only a year after first being shortlisted for the Polaris, Weaves is back with sharper compositions and more focused ideas on their second album “Wide Open.” Two of the tracks include the punctuation of Inuk throat singer Tanya Tagaq, who took home the Polaris prize in 2014.Follow @dfriend on Twitter.last_img read more

12:07 am Related News As the waters begin to recede from Jammu and Kashmir another story is revealed — of a state government completely overpowered by a moment of unprecedented crisis In a first person account published in The Indian Express Chief Minister Omar Abdullah charged with not responding promptly or adequately to the disaster has explained some of the tremendous odds his government was battling In the first hours after tragedy struck he says the administration was shrunk to six people in a room with no means of communication or transport He speaks of key government buildings and installations including the secretariat the municipal offices the hospitals as well as the police and fire control rooms cut off by the deluge Of an administration crippled as Srinagar the state capital went under water Of a government watching in dismay as the crisis escalated beyond all calculations Nobody could have anticipated the worst floods in 50 years in J&K Abdullah has done well to take on the criticism and attempt to forthrightly communicate and explain the government’s point of view But this wholly unprecedented moment is not likely to be seen in isolation by the people of J&K and the challenge before Abdullah is to fight the perception that this current helplessness flows from a systemic failure of governance in the state To begin with there were warnings that the government ignored which meant that it faced the deluge totally unprepared A 2010 report by the flood control department of Jammu had spoken of the capital being submerged by an intense spell of rain yet the state government did little about it It did nothing to curb unregulated construction in flood basins and catchment areas which choked water bodies and added to the damage A report by the state remote sensing centre had pointed out that the lakes and water channels in Srinagar had shrunk by half over the last century The real problem for the Abdullah government is that its tenure so far is seen to be full of missed opportunities to address J&K’s long-running governance deficit The National Conference won the 2008 assembly election which saw people voting in record numbers on the promise of bijli sadak pani But that conversation could not be sustained the systems of local government remained broken and the state dispensation sank back into politics as usual As J&K heads towards another assembly election Abdullah will have to find a way to de-link the government’s present disarray from these larger failures In the months to come it will be tested on how it handles the mammoth task of rehabilitating flood victims reconstructing devastated towns and villages and re-establishing law and order This government’s credibility hangs in the balance For all the latest Opinion News

and BJP reportedly having drawn up an “agenda for alliance” in order to form the state government This could be a coalition of opposites in many ways — for the first time the Hindu nationalist BJP would be sharing treasury benches with the PDP which has defined itself so far through a soft-separatist agenda Historically they have been ranged against each other on most of the contentious issues surrounding J&K But in the terms of alliance that are emerging the BJP seems prepared to soften some of its most enduring positions This process of give and take shows remarkable political agility but could it also raise new tensions The concerns of a party in the state government may not dovetail neatly with the posturing of the ruling party at the Centre Take Article 370 perceived to be one of the “core issues” that define the BJP It has long demanded the scrapping of the constitutional provision which gives J&K autonomy and its manifesto ahead of the Lok Sabha polls had staunchly reiterated the demand Though the first signs of flexibility came when Narendra Modi called for a “debate” on the issue in a Lok Sabha campaign speech talks with the PDP point to an even more radical compromise — under the proposed agenda Article 370 would be considered “inviolate” On dialogue with Pakistan the Narendra Modi government has been no pushover When Pakistan held meetings with Kashmiri separatist leaders the Centre promptly called off foreign secretary-level talks Now the BJP in J&K acknowledges the need to engage with Pakistan over PoK and even seems open to the idea of bringing the Hurriyat to the talks table On the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act a softened BJP appears more willing to consider phasing out the law from J&K If the agenda for alliance with the PDP is formalised the BJP faces an unprecedented test in the days ahead: can it speak in different voices at the Centre and state without suffering an identity crisis Will its assurances to the PDP turn out to be the compulsions of a political moment Or can it pull off a balancing act keeping faith with the people of J&K even as it soothes constituencies elsewhere For all the latest Opinion News download

precious On the way back we would stop to buy syrupy jalebis to dunk in scalding hot milk and devour while they were still crisp Winter is not my favourite season But each time I feel glum about the short days and the cold I remind myself that there’s a lot to celebrate from bajra khichri to doodh jalebi And choori At Welham in Dehradun where I studied for four years bowls of soupy Maggi noodles were the mainstay of secret midnight feasts in the dormitory “Saturday pudding” a jam-laced custard trifle served in the boarding school’s dining hall marked the start of the weekend I would eagerly look forward to outings with my local guardian Khurana uncle Come Sunday his trusty white Ambassador would drive my friend Soni and me straight to Ellora’s the local bakery famed for its chocolate eclairs coconut macaroons and cream rolls Bliss It wasn’t till I began travelling as a food writer that I discovered the staggering range of comfort food across India: in restaurants dhabas and street stalls and above all in home kitchens where cooks have welcomed me and shown me how they feed their families The dishes represent just half the culinary picture; the rest emerges in conversations Over the years I have come to realise that these staples are more ritual than meal their backstory the memory of togetherness and shared joy hardships and adversity On my first visit to Amritsar my friend Gayatri Peshawaria who runs a gourmet catering service treated me to Pal da Dhaba The hole-in-the-wall eatery serves the best kharode (lamb trotters soup) in town Over a bowl of the rib-sticking broth Gayatri shared her association with the dhaba which she would visit as an eight-year-old along with her grandfather “We would get a smoking hot plate of paya with crisp tandoori roti Dada would urge me to slather white butter on the roti and plunge into the gelatinous spicy gravy ‘This is what Superman eats It’s the food of champions’ I’ve been hooked ever since” At Suryagarh in Jaisalmer I discovered the simple goodness of bajra khichri a dish I cannot do without today After a day of shooting a food feature I sat down to savour the gruel of coarsely pounded millet served with ghee and jaggery On the table were several other seasonal specials including chaulai ka saag mogri ki sabzi and makki ka raab It was a mouthwatering spread When I landed in Kolkata in 2014 during the thick of winter I had one goal in mind: to get my hands on nolen gur the famed date palm jaggery which is the quintessence of the Bengali winter eating experience En route to Sonartori a Bengali-themed restaurant at Ganga Kutir in Raichak I stopped at Joynagar for moa a seasonal delicacy prepared from nolen gur and puffed rice The cloyingly sweet laddoo left me underwhelmed Fortunately chef Sumanta Chakrabarty’s divine creations at Sonartori — nolen gurer payesh made with Gobindo Bhog rice jol bhara sandesh and nolen gur rasgollas — changed my mind It was love at first bite Sumanta recalled how as a four year old he would visit a small village called Hiranpur in Chhota Nagpur Plateau on the border of Bengal and Bihar to meet his grandparents during winter vacations “My grandmother would pamper me with nolen gur pithe and moa The gur was from our ancestral land there Grandfather and I would set out every other day to collect gur and green gram by bullock cart” At a pop-up hosted by northeast food curator Gitika Saikia I got a taste of na khuwa bhooj or the new harvest feast celebrated in the months of November and December in Assam On the menu were gahori lai-xaak or broad mustard greens cooked with pork fat and meat paro jalukiya a peppery pigeon curry cooked with small baby potatoes and loads of pepper and kumura haanh or ash gourd with duck meat The farmers’ festival coincides with the wedding season in Assam Gitika told me that in Upper Assam among her tribe Sonowal Kachari the status of a guest is determined by what he or she is served Duck meat means you are a VIP and goose meat elevates you to a VVIP “You still have some way to go’ she teased For an anniversary issue of the magazine I edited dum maestro Imtiaz Qureshi made a sublime shab degh the famed slow-cooked stew of mutton balls and fried turnips its two main ingredients impossible to tell apart The octogenarian was in his element delighting us with anecdotes from his extraordinary career as he cooked The Padma Shri awardee placed shab degh within the great tradition of one-meal dishes like biryani haleem and khichra all of which evolved out of a need to feed the army “Shab degh was a simple rustic Kashmiri dish which was refined by the nawabs of Awadh Use the cut of the shoulder and cook it in a stock of paya It makes all the difference” he shared The meltingly tender meat fell apart in my mouth It was easily one of the best meals of my life The part certain recipes play in people’s lives fascinates me I love how food becomes a vehicle a mode of storytelling For Delhi-based pastry consultant Kishi Arora banarasi matar cheewda made with flattened rice and peas is a joyful family ritual “It’s a time-consuming recipe that involves lots of roasted and ground masalas so we share the labour My grandmother used to make it in winter Now when mum makes it it’s a way to celebrate her side of the family” Chef Amit Pamnani grew up eating poppy seed halwa or khuskhus jo sheero made by grinding soaked khuskhus and cooking it with ghee milk and sugar “It was one of the sweets prepared during winter at my nani’s place As kids we used to get impatient and ended up helping her out so it cooked faster and we could enjoy it” I could go on and on So many dishes What do they have in common Each one is designed not only to nourish but to satisfy soothe and indulge Nostalgia is a key ingredient in them all an abstract craving for comfort translated into sweet savoury or spicy I don’t know why we hold on to these first tastes so strongly But I do know they are an incredibly important force guiding us in the kitchen They testify to the role the brain plays in the rich sensory experience that takes place every time we eat More than merely delicious they are edible archives of our emotions Winter is not my favourite season But each time I feel glum about the short days and the cold I remind myself that there’s a lot to celebrate from bajra khichri to doodh jalebi And

App More Related NewsAs the news of the much-awaited Cabinet expansion started coming in on Tuesday forenoon one was truly missing the excitement and wondering if the event had not lost its sheen While the media got into the motion of pretending that it was dealing with a real big event the names of the new entrants into the Cabinetfailed to arouse much enthusiasm With a few exceptions most were little known faces with hardly much to show by way of accomplishments There was a time when a Cabinet reshuffle or remoulding of the council of ministers used to be the biggest news of the day and would make banner headlines on the front pages of newspapers Those were the days when despite a few distortions creeping into the system of governance the government was still being run on the basis of a cabinet system that functioned within the parameters of a parliamentary system and the prime minister was just a little more than “the first among the equals” Prime Minister Narendra Modi with his new Cabinet ministers PIB Ministers were established leaders in their own right and enjoyed political stature as well as mass following There could be honest differences of opinion within the cabinet – remember the serious differences between former prime minister Indira Gandhi and her finance minister Morarji Desai – and issues could be freely discussed and debated However things have come a long way since then and the cabinet system itself is under severe strain The unpalatable fact is that the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has been for a long time functioning as a super-cabinet Its position of primacy has been further strengthened and crystallised under Prime Minister Narendra Modi who seems to believe that India has a presidential form of government People have forgotten that until Jawaharlal Nehru’s death the prime minister’s secretariat used to be very small and the PMOcame into being under super bureaucrat LK Jha when Lal Bahadur Shastri became the country’s prime minister It took large strides towards becoming a kind of super-cabinet under Indira Gandhi However even Indira Gandhi had ministers in her government who could express their opinions and who ran their ministries themselves something that is sorely missing in the Modi government It is an open secret that even those cabinet ministers who have had a long political career and who have served as chief ministers of important states do not count for much and are often kept in the dark about the doings of their own ministries To some extent this process had started under Manmohan Singh whenthe corridors of power in Lutyens’ Delhi were abuzz with the talk that a lot of files used to go to Planning Commission vice-chairman and well-known Singh protégé Montek Singh Ahluwalia PN Dhar who headed Indira Gandhi’s PMO for five years frankly admits: “A prime minister is certainly the most powerful person in a parliamentary democracy” However he goes on to caution: “He is at the apex but the apex it must be remembered is only a small part of the pyramid Regardless of constitutional and other restraints the personal power of the prime minister is limited by the constraint of time and the sheer size of government A day cannot be stretched beyond a few hours" "No one howsoever capable can master the complexities of international affairs economic policies defence and security problems and the complex host of thorny questions which daily land on his desk The quality of a prime minister’s leadership depends on how and when he realizes the limits of power and having done so is clear about the uses to which he puts the power at his command How he relates the apex to the rest of the structure determines the reach of his influence and sets the tone and temper of his government and administration” Dhar said Has Narendra Modi been able to realise the limits of his power and has he been able to relate the apex to the rest of the structure The question can be answered in full measure only after he completes five years in office However one can certainly hazard a guess on the basis of the last two years’ experience All indications so far tell us that all power has been centralised in his PMO and it has become the place where most decisions are taken This has taken a toll on the collective functioning of the government and the cabinet system under which the cabinet that is answerable to Parliament deliberates and takes decisions As Dhar points out no single person can be the repository of all knowledge and there is a limit to overstretching Modi’s penchant for going solo is not ideally suited to govern a vast country with intractable problems It does not require great intelligence to see that the cabinet expansion has been effected keeping in view the forthcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat next year This explains the induction of Dalit and OBC ministers in such numbers It is also ironical that a prime minister who often criticised his predecessor for having a large ministry and whose poll slogan was “Minimum government maximum governance” has within two years been forced to match the size of the previous government

statements about Randhawa’s whereabouts The court hence directed the Investigating Officer (IO) of the case “…if the accused again resile from his statement recorded under Section 27 of the Evidence Act he should be produced before the Duty Magistrate in district courts in Amritsar” Granting a two-day police remand the court observed “The accused is continuously resiling from the statement however to facilitate the investigation this court is of opinion that a two-day remand is sufficient to trace Randhawa from Amritsar” The court gave directions to the IO that when accused is taken to Amritsar for investigation his medical test should be conducted and a daily dairy report (DDR) entry should be made Pointing out that the police has yet to recover the mobile phone which Farid had allegedly given to one Partap Singh in Bangalore the court said “Despite a six-day police remand no efforts have been made by the Investigating Officer as per the police file to take the accused to Bangalore for recovery of the mobile phone from there” The court further pointed out that the police was seeking a remand on the same ground “After going through the file when the remand was first sought ( February 16) it was mentioned that the police remand of accused is necessary for recovery of vehicle (BMW) and for the recovery of his mobile phone with the sim card” Meanwhile a team of

landscape because the Bharatiya Janata Party can now be officially declared dead It has been committing slow suicide since its defeat in the 2004 general election but it managed to stay alive on one mans hope that he would one day become Prime Minister This created a false sense of vitality Butwhen Shri Lal Krishna Advani gave up this hope after the partys second defeat last Maythe BJP was left in the hands of a president who put the party out of its suffering by becoming a guillotine If Rajnath Singh will be remembered at all by historyhe will be remembered as the BJPs executioner Whoever appointed this mediocreprovincial politician to such high office could not have anticipated this hidden talent In recent months after Shri Advani went into semi-retirementthe BJP president did extraordinary damage to the partys already crumbling structure He dismissed regional leaders with proven abilitiespromoted scumtook reckless decisionspermitted high corruption and took not one step that brought the BJP closer to revival or hope There are now so many crooks in the upper echelons of the BJP that Delhi abounds with stories of a commercial transaction over the Haryana election According to the political grapevine the BJP resorted to match-fixing to lose in Haryana so that the business interests of some important people would not be hurt by a change in government If corruption was the BJPs only problemthere might still be hope Corruptionas Indira Gandhi so memorably saidis a global phenomenon It certainly is an Indian one Most political parties these days are filled with young heirs whose main reason for entering public life is to make easy money There is no easier way to make pots and pots of ill-gotten money in India than to enter politics Soif BJP officials are enthusiastically lining their pocketsit should not be held against them Speaking of whichI tried to find out what happened to the Rs 2 crore that mysteriously disappeared from party coffers last December and discovered only that the matter has been hushed up Butif a political party can be so casual about the loss of such a large amount of cash it gives us an itsy-bitsy glimpse of just how much money has been made by party officials The BJPs demise has not been brought on by corruption but by serious political ineptitude After the defeat in Maharashtraparty officials clutched haplessly at the Raj Thackeray straw They went endlessly on to endless TV shows to say that 42 constituencies were affected by Raj Thackerays ability to arouse Marathi chauvinism What they appear to have not noticed is that Thackeray did as well as he did because he succeeded in projecting himself as the only opposition leader in Maharashtra He mocked the Congress and the Nationalist Congress Party leaders for not being able to provide electricity and clean water even in their own constituencies He pointed out that in ten years of rulethe government had been unable to improve living standards in Mumbai or Maharashtra Not a single BJP leader was able to do this because in Maharashtra there is nobody in the BJP to whom the word leader could even loosely apply As for Arunachal Pradeshif there is ever a real chintan baithak the BJPs senior leaders need to ask why Kiran Riiju left them for the Congress Party He is youngbrightvery political and every inch the sort of man that Indian politics desperately needs Why did he leave So then What happens now I agree with Arun Shourie when he says that the need of the hour is to bomb the headquarters Butwhen he suggested in his interview to The Indian Express editor-in-chief Shekhar Gupta that the only hope was for the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh to take the party overI nearly fainted with horror This is not a solution It is the kiss of death The RSS has not had a new idea since the 1930 when it made the weird couture decision to dress its rank and file in khaki knickers Not a single RSS leader has a political idea worth discussing and on the cultural front they need to begin by first learning the fundamentals of Indian culture Forget so big an idea What about just committing its khaki knickers cadre to cleaning the

8:48 am Virat Kohli celebrates after Hardik Pandya and R Ashwin take the team over the line against England in Pune on Sunday Reuters Top News YUVRAJ SINGH and MS Dhoni had left within the space of nine balls On the eve of his first-ever ODI in-charge Virat Kohli had reiterated on a few occasions about how he had to now take up more responsibility of batting through the innings He had also spoken about the importance of having that tag-team of Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh back in the middle to shore up his arsenal But here in what could best be described as tepid dismissals both Dhoni and Yuvraj were gone India were 63/4 England had earlier in the day posted their highest-ever ODI score 350/7 against India Now we know Kohli loves run-chases He gets a high off them His numbers in this scenario are outrageous and well-documented Here he seemed to be facing an insurmountable task Not so much because of the target facing him He’d helped India surpass 350+ totals before But he now only had Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya to come with still 287 runs to get So he chose to do what he does best Just bat on As far as the English were concerned nothing had changed from when they left before Christmas The ball was of a different colour they themselves were donning colour they had a different captain in-charge and they were if anything more on top of India than they had been during the split tour But still Kohli kept finding the boundary Kohli kept scoring runs Nothing seemed to have changed for Kohli either And eventually he scored his 27th ODI ton to lead India in yet another successful run-chase this time sharing a partnership with Jadhav that he would call one of the best of his career Jadhav might have come in and stolen the show But it was Kohli who commenced the counterattack He smashed David Willey who had already snared one of the openers and would add the other one to his tally soon over wide long-on for six He did so after jumping out of his crease despite this being only the fifth delivery of his innings From there on it was just Kohli holding court Whenever you think these days that you’ve seen it all from Kohli he surprises you On Sunday he struck two such shots One was a whippy flick drive wide of mid-on off a ball that was way outside his off-stump and he had met after jumping out of his crease The second was a six he hit of Chris Woakes with a straight bat off a short of length delivery that rose to near his chest and flew over mid-wicket The first came when India had lost their openers and the second came much later in his innings after he and Jadhav had snatched the momentum away from the English without ever looking like they were going gung-ho about it You would ideally imagine a target of 350 being chased down by a team that goes hell for leather from the word go But Kohli seemed content with conquering this Everest by taking the stairs with a few leaps and jumps in between of course The secret to the Kohli-Jadhav stand was that they never let the English build any pressure When they weren’t playing some outrageous shots they were sprinting across the wickets with great regularity In fact by the time they brought up their 150-run stand they had only conceded 22 dot balls to the opposition They were killing England softly The required run-rate remained stagnant at around 73 for most of their partnership and it was only once Kohli and Jadhav cut loose did it shift and that too in India’s favour When Kohli and Jadhav departed after their respective centuries it was that other missing piece in India’s ODI setup that needed that was in the spotlight as Hardik Pandya walked out to bat For once he looked calmer than the situation itself and managed to see the team through without much fuss Like Kohli and Jadhav he too stuck to tapping the ball around but found the boundary when it mattered most and in the end probably answered his captain’s call for a finisher too It was a run-chase where India always seemed to keep themselves ahead despite the score-board showing on many occasions that they were way behind the eight-ball No wonder then that Kohli counted this as one of his ‘special’ run-chases “We figured out how to tackle the situation We thought we could play percentage cricket and keep taking that calculated risks in the middle The ball travels very very fast here We could hit sixes to put that pressure every now and then on the opposition We chased 350 a couple of times before but not from 63/4 Something really special and stay with me for a long time” Kohli would say “Kedar and I had a gut feel We thought if we get the score past 150 160 together still with four down we had a great chance We kept looking at the numbers of balls and numbers of runs needed Once it was below 10 we were confident” he added Brief scores: England 350/7 in 50 overs (Jason Roy 73 off 61 balls Joe Root 78 off 95 balls Ben Stokes 62 off 40 balls Hardik Pandya 2 for 46 Ravindra Jadeja 1 for 50) vs India 356/7 481 overs (Virat Kohli 122 off 105 balls Kedar Jadhav 120 off 76 balls Hardik Pandya 40* off 37 balls David Willey 2 for 47) For all the latest Sports News download
