 Cricket └ #IndvPak └ World Cups └ Pakistan victories └? Folder is empty — cricBC (@cricBC) July 22 2015 ICC tournaments are the only place where India and Pakistan lock horns in a cricket match While India’s World Cup record is indeed enviable the ICC Champions Trophy is one event where Pakistan holds the edge There have been three Champions Trophy encounters between the arch-rivals and Pakistan have held the edge over India winning two India has a much better overall record in Champions Trophy reaching the final three times winning the trophy in 2013 and sharing it with Sri Lanka in 2002 Pakistan on the other hand has never been in a Champions Trophy final But trust fans from both the countries to remind their teams that it doesn’t matter so much whether you bring home the trophy or not they want a victory against their neighbours at any cost File image of an India-Pakistan match Getty images The first Champions Trophy encounter between India and Pakistan was a nervy low-scoring affair played at Edgbaston in 2004 which is also the venue of this year’s contest India batted first and were put in a spot of bother due to some accurate bowling from Naved-ul-Hasan Rana with the new ball and a destructive mid-innings burst from Shoaib Akhtar Rahul Dravid anchored the inning with 67 and Ajit Agarkar chanced his arm late in the innings to lead India to a respectable if not match-winning total of 200 In reply Pakistan suffered early setbacks at the bowling of Irfan Pathan the young swing bowler who had impressed all with his temperament and skills and had given them a lot of trouble in the series back home earlier in the year It took the class of Inzamam-ul-Haq and Yousuf Youhana (later Mohammad Yousuf)to weather the Pathan storm and rebuild the innings Their partnership and some late blows from Shahid Afridi saw Pakistan through in the final over Youhana won the man of the match for his unbeaten effort Pakistan reached the semi-finals on the back of this win only to be blown away by a resurgent West Indian team who would also go on to win the tournament In their second Champions Trophy encounter at Centurion South Africa in 2009 Shoaib Malik lead the way for Pakistan against his favourite opposition scoring a brilliant hundred Pakistan batted steadily after losing three early wickets and accelerated brilliantly in the last twenty overs to post a handsome 302 In response Gautam Gambhir got India off to a flying start but was run out when he was looking set to take the game away from Pakistan Dravid who was making a comeback to India’s ODI set-up in this series top scored for India again while Naved-ul-Hasan Rana again picked up four wickets to add to the sense of deja vu from 2004 In the end Pakistan’s spin bowling proved to be the difference between the two teams Shahid Afridi and Saeed Ajmal picked wickets at crucial times and keep things tight while Harbhajan Singh went for 71 in his allotted ten overs The teams met for their third Champions Trophy encounter at Edgbaston again in 2013 India were already on a roll after beating South Africa and West Indies while Pakistan had lost both their group encounters and were playing for pride Bhuvneshwar Kumar got the early breakthroughs for India taking Nasir Jamshed and Mohammad Hafeez in his first spell The match was curtailed by frequent rain breaks and the Indian spinners kept pegging away picking wickets at regular intervals Both Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja got a lot of purchase from the pitch their partnership with the ball was showing potential of turning into something special for India Pakistan was eventually bowled out for 165 failing to bat out the allotted 40 overs India’s target was further reduced to 102 in 22 overs Their newly-formed opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan continued their good form and knocked off most of the runs with ease Virat Kohli and Dinesh Karthik did the rest in another clinical finish from India who stayed unbeaten in the tournament right till the end to bring home the coveted trophy It’s interesting to notice that while Indian team looks very similar from the one that played in 2013 Pakistan’s squad looks almost unrecognisable from the one that played four years ago That itself tells a story of stability in one team and frequent turmoil in another Pakistan’s young team will be eager to prove a point though and unlike ICC World Cups where they are under pressure of breaking the losing streak they will take heart from the fact that Champions Trophy is one tournament where they have a superior record Written by Express News Service

– Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) – has recommended limiting bat size edges and depths In addition the MCC’s World Cricket Committee headed by former England captain Mike Brearley that met at Mumbai for two days ending on Wednesday has also come up with the radical suggestion of introducing a football-hockey-like red card as punishment for violent acts on the cricket field The committee also deliberated on the ball-tampering laws which it felt will remain unaltered was split vertically on the possibility of reducing Test cricket from a five-day affair to a four-day one it was announced by Brearley former Australian captain Ricky Ponting former Pakistan opener Rameez Raja and MCC’s head of cricket – John Stephenson – Mumbai A memorable moment in the first ever T20I between Australia and New Zealand in which umpire Billy Bowden flashed red card to Glenn McGrath for attempting an under-arm ball Getty Images Other recommendations included urging the International Cricket Council (ICC) the world body governing the game to continue to work towards introducing a World Test Championship and presenting the case for cricket at the Olympic Games and changing the law on ball striking a fielder’s helmet it was announced by the panel All these recommendations will be sent to the main MCC Committee and if approved these changes will be implemented into the new code of the Laws of Cricket which will be introduced on 1 October 2017 On the suggestion to reduce the bat size Ponting said that 60 per cent of the world’s professional players supported the decision to limit them to 40 mm on edges and 67 mm for depths including 7 mm for curvature "We want to limit the edges to 38-42 mm Some of the players have edges in excess of 50mm We are happy with what we have come up which will restore the balance between the bat and the ball We have seen top-edges and leading edges going for sixes Even with the limit in bat size big hitters can still clear the ropes" said Ponting It was announced that the ball tampering law which was recently in the news when South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was caught on camera using a mouth mint to polish the ball during the series in Australia will remain the same "Don’t be caught" was the advice given by both Brearley and Raja On the question of the player being red carded Brearley said it will act as a deterrent "We discussed the yellow card (temporary) suspension too but then decided against it The red card is for most extreme cases only" the former England opener said As per the suggestion umpires will be given the power to eject cricketers from a game for serious disciplinary breaches The player can be removed for threatening an umpire physically assaulting another player umpire official or spectator or for any other act of violence on the field of play The reason for this radical suggestion was that cricket is one sport in which there is no in-match punishment for poor behaviour of the player by the umpires the committee felt The change in the law striking a fielder’s helmet says that catches and stumpings will be permitted after the ball has struck a fielder’s worn helmet At present catches and stumpings may be taken off a wicket keeper’s pads the use of which is optional and so it seems unfair that they should not be permitted after hitting a helmet the wearing of which has become compulsory in the game in some countries the committee said The change for the caught law will include a ball becoming lodged or trapped in the grille of the fielder’s helmet in the same way as it is caught if it gets trapped between the wicket keeper’s pads or in a fielder’s sweater or pocket the committee stated The committee also discussed four-day Tests and day-night Tests and was split on the former suggestion About the need to try and include cricket in the Olympic Games the committee said that the Indian Cricket Board chief Anurag Thakur who was asked about it separately told them that he had “an open mind” on the subject BCCI has been a stumbling block in the past over cricket being played in multi-sport Games such as Olympics Asian Games and Commonwealth Games The next meeting of the committee will be held at Lord’s London on 3 and 4 July By: New York Times | Updated: November 1 2014 12:42 am Related News We think of ghosts as wispy and translucent — a vaporous woman perhaps who floats down the stairs her dress trailing in the languid air behind her But in early modern Europe ghosts were often perceived as solid persons The viewer discovered that they weren’t when they did something that ordinary humans could not like bypassing a locked door to enter a room By the 19th century people had begun to think of ghosts predominantly as spectral forms — ephemeral elusive evanescent When the ghost of Marley appeared to Scrooge in Dickens’s A Christmas Carol (1843) and Scrooge looked his transparent body “through and through” he illustrated a shift in the ways ghosts became real to people how ghosts were seen and remembered In Spectres of the Self the cultural historian Shane McCorristine points to two reasons for this transmutation The first was scepticism about the supernatural generated by the new developments in science The concept of hallucination emerged to explain experiences like seeing an apparition As the seeing of ghosts became a psychological phenomenon it also became a pathological one In 1848 the British sceptic Charles Ollier spoke for many when he wrote that “anyone who thinks he has seen a ghost may take the vision as a symptom that his bodily health is deranged” As a result McCorristine writes the ghost was gradually relocated “from the external objective and theological structured world to the internal subjective and psychological haunted world of personal experience” The other reason was the development of new technologies including photography in the early decades of the 19th century Those who wanted to hang on to their belief in the supernatural despite the apparent threat posed by science found in the idea of the hallucination a kind of scientific evidence that the dead came back to life By the 1860s “spirit photography” presented astonishing images of people alongside dead relatives using double exposure and other manipulations to portray a gauzy form alongside living flesh It was the transparency that marked the dead as dead — and of course it was technology that allowed some photographers to fake the ghost Pop culture is richly peopled with vampires zombies the living dead: the Harry Potter books the Twilight series the television show Grimm Scholars sometimes talk about this supernaturalisation as a kind of “re-enchantment” of the world — as a growing awareness that the modern world is not stripped of the magical as the German sociologist Max Weber and so many others once thought but is in some ways more fascinated than ever with the idea that there is more than material reality around us In part I think this is because scepticism has made the supernatural safe even fun It turns out that while many Americans may think that there are ghosts they often don’t believe that ghosts can harm them There is however a deeper reason Just as spiritualism became a means to hold on to the supernatural claims of religion in the face of science in the 19th century the supernaturalism of our own time may enable something similar Perhaps technology plays a role as well Our world is animated in ways that can seem almost uncanny — lights that snap on as you approach cars that fire into life without keys websites that know what you like to read and suggest more books like those The internet is not material in the ordinary way It feels somehow different Maybe this too stokes our

the Organiser focuses on BR Ambedkar and notes that “his life was as good as walking on fire” His “biggest contribution” according to the report is that “he awakened the common man” and argues that “before the arrival of Babasaheb the untouchable community itself was not aware that untouchability is a sin” “Our nation was a victim of Muslim aggression” and “before 1920 nobody wanted to involve the people from the lowest strata of society in the nation-building process” The situation has “changed considerably” as a person from deprived sections of society can now become president governor or minister “The way Babasaheb carved out a system to ensure participation of crores of deprived and depressed sections in the national life is priceless” the report says Pointing that he “experienced social slavery many a time” it recalls that Babasaheb once told Mahatma Gandhi that “I do not even have a motherland” In 1935 he declared that “I am born as a Hindu but will not die as a Hindu”

students for “hoisting the Tricolour” is unacceptable It blames the separatists and opposition parties for “doing politics with this sensitive issue” Quoting an NIT student the article claims local students brought some outsiders to the hostel and threatened the others “They told the students that you have come to study in Kashmir from Hindustan Quietly study If you talk too much you will lose your lives” according to the student quoted The student also mentions that girl students were threatened with rape Whatever happened at the NIT is not new for Kashmir the article argues but adds that the situation has changed considerably as separatists no longer attract the kind of support they once did It argues that the NIT controversy smacks of a “conspiracy” and blames separatists and opposition parties The Central and state governments must find a way so that a similar situation does not take place in future Hindu Northeast Contending that the Northeast shares “philosophical religious historical and cultural oneness with sanatan dharma” an article in the Organiser elaborates several cultural practices in the area to assert that “tribal communities like Hindus believe in monism” It claims that people in the Northeast worship nature as the “objective aspect of god or ishwar” which is “nothing but the unseen self-effulgent power that operates and controls the nature” “Hindus including the tribal people of the Northeast believe in manifestation and not in creation” the article says adding that “the term creation suggests there is a creator and the created” This belief is called dualism “All Western religions especially of Semitic origin like Christianity Judaism and Islam believe in creation that is they believe in dualism” the article says Unlike these faiths Hindus and tribals of the Northeast “do not believe in the existence of satan” “Since the tribal people of Northeast and the Hindus have the same belief it would not be wrong to treat the indigenous people of the Northeast as Hindu or belonging to sanatan dharma” it says “Like the Hindus of the mainland the people of the Northeast also believe that god is one which is worshipped by the
