IPL 2017: Sanju Samson’s 102, Zaheer Khan’s 3/20 give Delhi 97-run win over Pune

first_imgDelhi Daredevils rode on an all-round effort to thrash Rising Pune Supergiant by 97 runs in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 match at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium here on Tuesday. (Match Highlights | Scorecard)While Kerala youngster Sanju Samson’s maiden T20 hundred set things on fire in the first innings as Delhi posted a mammoth 204/5, captain Zaheer Khan led from the front with three wickets to bundle the hosts out for a paltry 108 in 16.1 overs.Zaheer (3/20) was complimented well by leg-spinner Amit Mishra, who returned with figures of 3/11 and Australian pacer Pat Cummins (2/24) as Pune succumbed to their second defeat in their three matches so far.Chasing a mammoth 205, Pune’s innings derailed in the third over when opener and stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane (10) fell to Zaheer.Zaheer again struck in his very next over with the wicket of Mayank Agarwal, whose poor run with the bat continued.The Karnataka right-hander failed to read a slower one from the veteran left-armer and was beautifully latched on by Chris Morris at mid-off. (IPL’s first centurion McCullum in awe of Samson)Thereafter, it seemed like the Pune batsmen were in a hurry to get back to the dug out as debutant Rahul Tripathi (10), Faf du Plessis (8) and IPL-2017’s million dollar boy Ben Stokes (2) fell in no time.Tripathi started well by hitting two fours before getting a top edge off Morris’ short delivery only to be smartly caught by Shahbaz Nadeem at short fine leg.Playing his first match of the season, South African du Plessis clearly looked out of touch when his attempt to scoop one from left-arm spinner Nadeem, ended up in a faint edge to be beautifully caught by stumper Rishabh Pant.advertisementComing back for his second spell, Cummins then dealt a fiery blow to the hosts with the key wicket of Stokes. (Samson thanks Dravid after maiden hundred)Stokes wasn’t looking too comfortable against the pace of Cummins, and he was undone in his attempt to pull one bowled at 148 kph only resulted in a bottom edge to Pant.Pune’s weakness with the bat in the absence of regular skipper Steve Smith was clearly out when the hosts lost half the side by the eighth over with just 55 runs on the board.Former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (11) and veteran all-rounder Rajat Bhatia (16) also failed to make any vital contributions.Dhoni, who slammed Nadeem for a six in the previous over, lasted only 14 deliveries before Mishra saw the Ranchi stumper’s back. (Stats: Samson 12th Indian to slam IPL ton)Mishra then dented Pune’s hopes with the wicket of Bhatia in his very next over after the Delhi all-rounder faced 17 balls.Pacer Deepak Chahar (14) raised Pune’s hopes for a short while when he clobbered Cummins for two consecutive sixes before Zaheer got him caught behind on the first ball of his third over.Mishra struck once again in his third over to get rid of Australian leggie Adam Zampa (5) as Pune were reduced to 107/9 before Cummins finished off things with the wicket of Ashoke Dinda (7) without any fuss.Earlier, the 22-year-old Samson took the Pune bowlers to the cleaners from the word go, before converting his first T20 half century to a match-winning hundred.Samson, who got to his century with a straight six off Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa, clobbered five sixes and eight fours in his 63-ball 103. (Sanju Samson finds admirers in Zaheer Khan and Rahane)South African all-rounder Chris Morris then added the late order fireworks in the final two overs, with a 9-ball unbeaten 38, that included three sixes and four boundaries, to raise Delhi’s 200.Put in to bat, Delhi were once again off to a poor start losing opener Aditya Tare for nought but Sam Billings (24) andSamson resurrected the innings with a 69-run second wicket stand.Samson raised another half century stand, this time with Rishabh Pant (31) adding 53 runs for the third wicket.Pune leaked as many as 45 runs in the final two overs as Morris went on with his natural game from the very first ball. He slammed Zampa for two fours and a six in the 19th over before clobbering Stokes for two more boundaries and as many maximums in the final over to take Delhi to the massive total.last_img read more

Ministry of Finance issues guidelines for Financial Institutions with US and UK

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 08 Dec 2015 – Since December of 2014, the Turks and Caicos signed an Intergovernmental agreement or IGA so that the laws of the US FATCA or Foreign Accounts Tax Compliance Act and the UK equivalent could have force in these islands. Last month, the Ministry of Finance issued some guidance notes to companies working with clients of the two countries on how the monies of these clients ought be handled based on that agreement which had been almost two years in the making. Magnetic Media asked Drexwell Seymour, a CPA and CEO of HLB what advice he would give to his clients regarding the 164 document and it’s stipulations; Seymour said: “I would encourage all US citizens and UK citizens to ensure that they reflect all of their deposits and investments in the TCI with the relevant US and UK authorities.” Seymour explained that this honesty is what these larger nations are looking for and failure to comply is so fiscally painful that a breach by a Turks and Caicos company is highly unlikely. “In any event the local financial institutions will release the information because if they do not, they will face a withholding tax of 30 percent.”TCIG advised that while the recently released, ‘Guidance Notes’ are not law, they do carry the spirit of the FATCA and IGA signed with the United States and the United Kingdom which are equivalent to having Tax Information Exchange Agreements. The Ministry of Finance also shared that while there is no law to make TCI financial institutions adhere, there is an Exchange of Information Unit , or EIU which is authorized to monitor the compliance of local companies who are reported to them by the US or UK.

JAMAICA Special provision for disabled persons under NIDS

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, November 17, 2017 – Kingston – Special provisions will be made for persons with disabilities and the indigent under the National Identification System (NIDS).  This was disclosed by Programme Director for NIDS, Warren Vernon, during a press conference at Jamaica House on Tuesday (November 14).“We intend to have 43 enrolment centres across the island (and) those centres will be configured in such a way that will cater for the entire population (including) persons with disabilities,” he said.He noted that to enroll in the system, persons will be required to give their full name, date of birth, and biometric information, which includes fingerprint, facial image and a manual signature.   However, for persons with disabilities who are unable to give some of the core biometric information required, Mr. Vernon noted that “we will use other biometric attributes in order to register the individual”.In the meantime, Director of Communications and Public Affairs in the Office of the Prime Minister, Robert Morgan, noted that there will be static and mobile registration facilities set up for enrolment.“The static facilities (will be at) a government office where… you can register.   The mobile (is for) persons who are indigent, shut-ins, persons (with disabilities) and (those) within the penal institutions,” he noted.Minister of Labour and Social Security, Hon. Shahine Robinson, in a statement expressed full support of NIDS, especially in terms of its facilitation of the disabled.   She noted that it is imperative that persons with disabilities be empowered and feel that they are a part of what is happening in the society “and NIDS is now an additional arm to facilitate this process”.“To this end, the registration of all citizens, particularly those living with disabilities, is encouraged, to enable the Government to properly identify and plan for these persons,” she said.Implementation of NIDS is supported by the National Identification and Registration Bill, which was passed in the Senate on Monday (November 13) with 168 amendments and has been returned to the House of Representatives for approval.With anticipated funding of US$68 million from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Government intends to put the NIDS infrastructure and systems in place over the next 12 months, beginning with a pilot project.   This is expected to be followed by the national roll-out in September 2019, over a period of three to four years.The layered roll-out and management of the NIDS will be handled by a new agency, the National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA), which will replace the Registrar General’s Department (RGD) and provide more enhanced services.Release: JIS Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:last_img read more

Opels modified Zafira Life pays homage to The ATeams GMC Vandura

first_img The A-Team lives on in Opel’s ‘O-Team’ Zafira Life The Opel Manta 400 was a Group B rally legend 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Vans Car Culture Enlarge ImageThe O-Team sounds like a crack group of detectives who donate blood on the regular. Opel Opel is bringing a bunch of its biggest fans together to celebrate the automaker, and at the event in Oschersleben, Germany, it will unveil one of the strangest vans we’ve seen in some time.Opel on Friday unveiled its “O-Team” Zafira Life van. If the name and the general aesthetics don’t give it away, the van is a tribute to the A-Team’s GMC Vandura from the 1980s A-Team television show. While there won’t be any cigar-chomping action going on, it’s been a hot minute since an automaker has trotted out a custom van, so that alone is worth celebrating.The van carries a similar paint job to the A-Team’s Vandura, with the exception of a changed-up color scheme that uses Opel’s favorite hues, and that bright-green strip really pops in pictures. A 20-inch BBS alloy wheel hangs out at each corner, wrapped in aggressive Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and behind the front wheels is a set of 15-inch brake rotors. The van itself is lower than usual, too, but it can raise and lower as needed, thanks to an adjustable air suspension.The interior is largely the same as usual, save for the same color scheme as the exterior. There’s a set of sport seats from the Opel Insignia GSi up front, while the second and third rows get rotating captain’s chairs wrapped in leather and Alcantara suede. The weirdest part about being inside the van, though, is that the speakers will deceive you into believing there’s a V8 under the hood (there isn’t — it’s just a 2.0-liter diesel I4).This isn’t a one-off creation, either. Opel noted that every modification made to the van carries TUV approval, so the parts are all road-legal installations that anyone in Europe can make. Thus, there might be more than a few “O-Team” vans rolling around Germany in the near future. I pity the fool who doesn’t dig that idea.
