MS Dhoni is back at the helm of the Men in Blue as they take on New Zealand in the first ODI on Sunday in Dharamshala. The series gives India’s limited overs skipper a chance to correct an uncharacteristic recent poor run of results. Since the 2015 World Cup, India have played four series under MS Dhoni and won only one against Zimbabwe. Defeats to Bangladesh, Australia away and South Africa at home have seen questions being raised on Dhoni’s leadership, but he could end that debate by taking India back into the top 3 of the ODI rankings. However it will not be a walk in the park. Half the senior team is on the sidelines, either injured or rested for this ODI series leaving Dhoni to depend on a few senior pros and a bunch of highly talented youngsters. (Virat Kohli has done his job, focus now on MS Dhoni) “In terms of competitiveness yes, you will miss a couple of seniors make no mistake about it. R Ashwin and Jadeja will be missed. You see over the last 10-15 years, whenever we have played at home you need about 25-28 overs of spin, that is what controls the game. So it is going to be a challenge for young spinners as well. Will they be able to hold their own in their own backyard? For people like Axar Patel and Jayant Yadav and specially Amit Mishra, if they can hold their own, that will also show how strong India’s bench strength is,” said former India cricketer Nikhil Chopra to India Today. Ashwin and Jadeja were rested by the selectors for the ODI series with an eye on the marathon home Test season ahead. Mohammad Shami is also rested while fellow pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar is out injured along with openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul. It remains to be seen with senior pros missing whether Dhoni bats up the order against the Kiwis. “We have been saying this for a long long time, we all feel with the talent that Mahi has got, there is no point in him coming way down the order in limited overs cricket. I understand what he tries to do in terms of controlling the game, he feels he can do the best job in the last 8-10 overs. But the point is if he bats up the order and faces 55-60 deliveries in his personal capacity then he will win you the game. He does not need anybody else coming down the order to control the game. Dhoni the batsman also needs runs under his belt,” says Nikhil. Sports historian Boria Majumdar too echoed Nikhil’s views and said the focus of the series is solely on MSD. “MS Dhoni has not played since a couple of T20s in USA and will not play in the next five months, so leading into the Champions Trophy in the summer of 2016, this is a very important series as far as MS Dhoni the cricketer is concerned. There will be question marks raised if MSD does not perform as a captain and as a player so it is very important for Dhoni as a player to lead from the front. He has to do well as a captain and also as a finisher,” said Boria. India’s last meeting with the Black Caps in limited overs cricket was not a happy occasion with the Kiwis handing a defeat to India in their opening match of the WT20 earlier this year at Nagpur. Still Nikhil believes this series will go India’s way.advertisement”I think a win over the Kiwis is likely. Mahi is coming back to lead the side, the team looks confident after the 3-0 victory in Test matches as well. You have got an opportunity for youngsters as well in terms of the spin department but with their recent showing in Australia where they represented India A against Australia A, the likes of Jayant Yadav, Axar Patel and others I am hopeful that these guys can go out there and do the job and hopefully Amit Mishra too will get a game,” said Nikhil. The first match of the five-ODI series will be played in Dharamsala on Sunday. India needs at least a 4-1 win in the series to leapfrog New Zealand and climb back into the top 3 of the ICC ODI rankings.

– Derek Gatopoulos (AP)ATHENS — Veteran striker Fanis Gekas has been recalled by Greece for the World Cup qualifying playoffs against Romania this month.Coach Fernando Santos named the 33-year-old center forward in a 24-man squad filled with veterans, including 36-year-old captain Giorgos Karagounis and 34-year-old midfielder Costas Katsouranis.The first leg is Nov. 14 in Piraeus, then Nov. 19 in Bucharest. Gekas, who plays for newly promoted Konyaspor in Turkey, has scored 24 goals in 68 appearances for his country and last played for Greece in June.Greece gained the most points as runner-up in European qualification — 25 from 10 matches — but lost out to high-scoring Bosnia on goal difference in Group G.Santos’ side, still rated 15th in the world rankings, struggled in recent qualifiers, finding it hard to score against lowly Liechtenstein on two occasions.They have missed the reassuring presence of Schalke defender Kyriakos Papadopoulos, a rising star at 21, who has been out all year following a right knee operation.Santos said he wanted to give little away before the first game at Karaiskaki Stadium, saying only that he would rely on experienced players.“I won’t say anything about any individual player. But we do have a lot of players who are under the threat of suspension, so we need give ourselves some options,” the Portuguese trainer said.“We have a lot of experienced players who will know how to win the first match without conceding a goal. The Romanians are an excellent team, but I believe we will be the ones to make it through.”Romania named foreign-based players last week, and coach Victor Piturca dropped veteran striker Adrian Mutu as well as Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon. Piturca included Greece-based midfielder Costin Lazar of PAOK and defenders Dorin Goian of Asteras Tripolis.TweetPinShare0 Shares

New Delhi: Karnataka Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy Saturday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sought early release of Rs 2,064.30 crore funds to provide relief to drought-hit farmers in the ongoing rabi season, an official statement said. Kumaraswamy informed Modi that the state faced drought situation during this year’s kharif season as well but the financial assistance sanctioned by the central government was inadequate. In addition to floods, Karnataka reeled under severe drought both during kharif (summer) and rabi (winter) seasons of the 2018-19 crop year (July-June). “Consecutive droughts, flood has brought farmers under distress and it is the time to rush to their aid,” Kumaraswamy told the Prime Minister. He requested Modi to expedite the process to release Rs 2,064.30 crore for drought relief and mitigation, the statement said. The state government has submitted a memorandum seeking Rs 2,064.30 crore drought relief fund for the ongoing rabi season as crop loss is estimated to be Rs 11,384.7 crore. The state has declared drought in 156 out of 176 talukas. In the meeting, Kumaraswamy apprised the Prime Minister about the pro-active steps taken to mitigate the drought impact on farmers. The state has released Rs 386 crore from the State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF) and given priority to ensure drinking water and fodder, besides creating 1.19 crore man-days jobs under the MGNREGA scheme, he added. The state government has advanced Rs 1,351 crore towards payment of pending wage and material bills in anticipation of release of central funds, Kumaraswamy said and requested for early release of funds to make further wage payments. The chief minister further said the central relief funds released to the state for drought faced during kharif season this year was not sufficient. The Centre sanctioned Rs 949.49 crore against the state government’s demand of Rs 2,434 crore as drought relief for the kharif season, which is less than 50 per cent of the input subsidy claim by the state, he noted. The crop loss during the khariff and rabi seasons together is estimated to be Rs 32,335 crore, he added.
Rabat – Aziz Akhannouch, newly elected Secretary-General of the National Rally of Independents (RNI), refuted accusations that he has obstructed the formation the coalition government.The National Rally of Independent (RNI) released a communiqué in the November 6 issue of the Moroccan Arabic-language newspaper Al-Alam. The communiqué came in response to the accusations that the party’s newly elected president has attempted obstruct the process of forming the government that Benkirane began on October 10.According to the statement, these accusations came “within a specific context experienced by our country lately” and were made by “certain parties in order to polish their political image and block the way of the deliberations to form the government coalition,” possibly alluding to the Independence Party (PI) and The Socialist Union of Popular Forces (USFP). “These parties”, continues the statement, “spread lies saying that the party of the National Rally of Independents and its Secretary-General have adopted an approach that contravenes with the community building that Morocco has chosen.”The RNI considers this “unprecedented attack” as a dangerous accusation that is meant to spread the image that the RNI opposes social and developmental reforms “while the party [RNI] has always subscribed, with all its potentials and efforts, to realizing societal and developmental projects that serve the Moroccan citizens.”The RNI seized the opportunity to reiterate its “firm positions in regards to respecting the democratic legitimacy and the reformist path launched by Morocco since the Constitution of 2011.”The communiqué mentions some “honorable positions” at the head of some ministries since it joined the government in 2013, where it “supported the developmental and social projects that Morocco saw during the previous government term.”The statement calls on the party’s “members, sympathizers and Moroccans in general to not be misled by this wave of lies aiming at causing segregation for narrow political machinations.”Edited by Constance Guindon

“This is the first step in this long journey, which inch’ Allah, God willing, will lead, in the end, to the formation of this government on schedule and to the well-prepared elections which will enable the Iraqi people to have a government that is elected through transparent, democratic elections,” Mr. Brahimi told a news briefing after the meeting. “These will be steps towards the restoration of peace and stability which the Iraqi people need and aspire to,” he added. Wishing him every success in his mission, current Governing Council President Massud Barzani pledged close cooperation between the Council’s specialized committees and Mr. Brahimi’s delegation. Asked whether security issues were discussed following the recent flare-up in violence, Mr. Barzani said the talks focused on the elections and the transfer of power.“This was an initial meeting,” he added. “Mr. Brahimi will need some time to conduct consultations with all the parties both in the Governing Council and outside the Governing Council.”Mr. Brahimi was asked if he would be meeting with personalities like Shiite cleric Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani who, according to press reports, had concerns over UN involvement.“We will meet all the personalities that wish to contribute to this effort and wish to meet with us,” the envoy replied. “We are the United Nations and the doors of the United Nations are open to all.”Mr. Brahimi and his aides, who arrived in Baghdad yesterday, join a UN technical team, headed by Carina Perelli, already in Iraq to assess what needs to be done to hold credible elections by 31 January 2005.
“We are very relieved that the crew are all unharmed and that the food aid is intact,” UN World Food Programme (WFP) Deputy Country Director Leo van der Velden said of the second hijacking of an agency ship in three months. “Fortunately this particular shipment is only slightly delayed, but with two hijackings in three months we will have to consider alternatives to secure the safety of both the people and food involved in our operations,” he said of the strife-torn Horn of Africa country, which has been without a functioning government for 14 years. The MV Miltzow, its crew and cargo were released at midnight yesterday, after a representative of the contractor together with the district commissioner boarded the ship to negotiate, and it can now proceed with delivering its relief cargo for drought-stricken people in southern Somalia. The St. Vincent and Grenadines-registered Miltzow was being offloaded when six gunmen stormed the ship and forced it to leave the port. Some 400 tons of the total cargo of 850 tons of WFP food aid remained on board. In June, the WFP-chartered Semlow, carrying 850 tons of rice for 28,000 tsunami survivors in the Puntland region, was stormed by gunmen off the coast of central Somalia, the first time in WFP history that a ship carrying relief food has been hijacked. It was released to the El Maan Port Authorities on 4 October. After initially suspending shipments in early July, WFP resumed food deliveries to ensure that its operations continue. Given the ongoing insecurity off the coast of Somalia, the agency is looking at various alternative routes including overland from Kenya and through Djibouti. Shipping companies are currently demanding armed escorts. WFP aims to provide a total of 1 million people in Somalia with food this year.
