Sri Lanka Cricket World Cup

Cheseter-le-Street (England), June 28 (IANS) Sri Lanka were all out for 203 in their 2019 ICC World Cup group stage match against South Africa on Friday.

South African skipper Faf du Plessis won the toss and chose to field first at Chesterfield and pacers Chris Morris, Dwaine Pretorius and Kagiso Rabada ran through the Sri Lankan batting lineup.

Sri Lankan captain Dimuth Karnaratne was dismissed by Rabada off the very first ball of the match sending the ball straight to du Plessis at second slip.

Avishka Fernando and Kushal Perera then batted out most of the rest of the first 10 overs but the former was dismissed by Pretorius off the penultimate ball of the 10th over.

The Lankans never managed to get the runs flowing after the two early blows. Kusal Perera fell in the 12th over to Pretorius and Angelo Mathews fell to Morris only 10 overs later. Sri Lanka made less than 30 runs in that period.

It meant that they were 100/4 in the 22nd over when Mathews was walking back. Kusal Mendis then became Pretorius’ third wicket of the day.

Dhananjaya de Silva was dismissed by JP Duminy and Chris Morris got the wickets of Jeevan Mendis and Lasith Malinga to end the day with three wickets to his name.

Sri Lanka’s slim chances of qualifying for the knockouts now depend upon the result of this match while South Africa are already out of the contention.

Brief scores: Sri Lanka 203 in 49.3 overs (Kusal Perera 30, Avishka Fernando 30; Dwaine Pretorius 3/25) vs South Africa

New Jan 20 : Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the reports that India’s richest 1 per cent owned more than 4 times the wealth of 953 million people, who make up for the bottom 70 per cent of the population.

The total wealth of all Indian billionaires is more than the full-year budget.

“Modi extracts wealth from poor & gives it to his crony capitalist friends & the big power brokers he’s dependent on. 1% of India’s super rich, now own 4 times more wealth than 1 Billion of India’s poor,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.

The Congress leaders have been attacking the Prime Minister for his proximity to the industrialists.

Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala alleged last week that the government was favouring Adani JV with HSL in awarding the Rs 45,000 crore contract for building six diesel-powered submarines, despite the company having no experience in submarine building.

“The government is flouting norms and the defence procurement procedure 2016 in awarding contract to the Adani HSL JV for building submarines, and promoting crony capitalism,” he said.

On border issue with China, India had several rounds of talks. General Naravane said their priorities are to maintain peace and tranquility on the border. “We are conscious of the fact there are threats from the both side,” he said.

On his recent visit to Siachen, General Naravane said: “As far as land borders are concerned this is where (Siachen) the two countries — (China and Pakistan) are the closest. So the chance for collusivity is the most. Here and in Shaksgam valley.”

Commenting on Pakistan Occupied Kashmir General Naravane said: “If Parliament wants that area should be taken we will definitely do so and action will be taken accordingly.”

About the China border, he said: “We have to balance our requirement. On northern border we are going in for capacity building, roads, habitats, storage for weapons by moving advanced weapons towards eastern side.”

In an annual press conference, Indian Army chief said there was a parliamentary resolution that entire erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir is part of India.
