first_imgSeeking to complete a whitewash, India would again rely on the guile and skill of their spinners when they take on a hapless New Zealand in the second and final cricket Test starting here on Friday.A 2-0 triumph would go a long way in erasing the bitter memories of previous season during which India were routed 4-0 by both England and Australia when they toured there.The Indians have bounced back in style this season by outplaying New Zealand inside four days in a lop-sided opening Test on the turning track of Hyderabad.Thoroughly outplayed in Hyderabad, the Kiwis will be hoping to find a way to counter the Indian spinners in the match which was expected to be affected by the inclement weather prevailing here for the past few days.Though Chinnaswamy curator Narayan Raju talked about a tinge of grass available on the pitch, the New Zealand think tank doesn’t hope for spin respite. They expect groundsmen to shave the pitch off and make sure it is dry.The inability of the New Zealand batsmen to handle spin was exposed in Hyderabad where 18 of their 20 wickets fell to tweakers.With off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin taking 12 wickets and left-armer Pragyan Ojha grabbing six, India underlined their supremacy on home soil by winning the first Test convincingly.India will once again look towards the spin duo to sweep the short series against the struggling Black Caps.Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is aware of the role the spin duo played in India’s victory in the last home Test series against the West Indies in November 2011 during which they shared 42 wickets in three matches.advertisementAmong the few positives for the Kiwis, Kane Williamson scored 32 and 52 in the first Test, while opener Brendon McCullum managed 42 in an innings of uncharacteristic restraint in the second dig.But more is required from the Black Caps who showed a distinct lack of application and patience in the opening match.Martin Guptill and McCullum will be looking to give a solid platform to the visitors which is crucial for them to make a battle of it against the formidable Indians.Skipper Ross Taylor, who hasn’t had a productive last two series, will also be looking to step up to the task without further ado.While Kiwi batsmen are sweating it out at the nets asking their spinners to bowl at them, their seamers are praying for a blanket of moisture than a dry surface for them to exploit the conditions.Weathermen predict that for the next five days, Bangalore will witness scattered thunderstorms which may affect the match. Temperatures will remain high at 26 degree Celsius and low at 20 degree Celsius each day.With youngsters Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli making headlines in the absence of batting greats VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid, the spotlight will also be on older generation of batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.Tendulkar has been working hard on his defence in the nets, while Sehwag went after strokes to get himself in right frame of mind.Concerns for Tendulkar probably springs from his nature of dismissals. He has been out 22 times either bowled or leg before wicket.Pujara’s form ahead of tougher assignments against England and Australia augurs well for India. The Saurashtrian hit a maiden Test century (159) in Hyderabad to help his side post a big total.The Indians start favourites by quite a few miles but the famous Kiwi resilience to punch above their weight cannot be ignored either.The Squads:India (from): Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Subramaniam Badrinath, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ravichandran Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav, Ajinkya Rahane, Piyush Chawla, Ishant Sharma, Suresh Raina.New Zealand (from): Ross Taylor (captain), Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Daniel Flynn, James Franklin, Martin Guptill, Chris Martin, Brendon McCullum, Tarun Nethula, Jeetan Patel, Tim Southee, Kruger van Wyk, Neil Wagner, Bradley-John Watling, Kane Williamson.Match starts at 9.30 am (IST).last_img read more

first_imgIndia go into the final ODI Thursday eyeing another home series triumph against the West Indies, a far cry from the dominant force it was when the city last hosted a 50-over international three decades ago.A victory in the fifth and penultimate One-day International will ensure India maintain their unbeaten run since the reverse against South Africa in 2015.Leading 2-1 in the five-match series that also witnessed a tie, the hosts faced unexpected resistance in the past few days, including suffering a shock defeat, since the time the West Indians set foot in the country a little more than a month ago.The weather is expected to play a part with showers predicted.Virat Kohli’s men bounced back from the loss in the third match at Pune to record a massive 224-run win at Mumbai.The home team will hope to carry the momentum into the series decider in the Southern city.The last ODI played in Thiruvananthapuram was also between the two teams and was won by the visiting side, then an eminent force in world cricket. Jason Holder’s men will look to seek inspiration from their illustrious predecessors and level the series.With the series being the first in the run-up to the 50-overs World Cup in England in June next year, the two sides are more or less aiming to zero in on the combination for the showpiece.What time does the 5th ODI between India vs West Indies start?5th ODI starts at 1:30 PM IST on November 1, Thursday at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram.advertisementWhat TV channel and live stream is the 5th ODI between India and West Indies Live Streaming on?Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD in English commentary and Star Sports 3 and Star Sports 3 HD in Hindi Commentary.

first_imgThe Government is currently engaged in an intense planning process to maintain the security gains and the safety of the citizens of Jamaica.Given the negative response of the Leader of the Opposition to the invitation of the Prime Minister to meet and reconsider the extensions of the States of Public Emergency, the Government has been focused on fine-tuning its security plans for the coming year.The public should bear in mind that the Leader of the Opposition while accepting the Prime Minister’s invitation to meet, has flatly rejected the purpose of the meeting, which is to discuss the extension of the State of Emergency.The Government does not wish to make security into a political football nor do we wish to engage in meaningless talk. The Government has always sought a united position on security matters and would welcome the cooperation of the Opposition even at this late stage. However, such cooperation must be genuine and meaningful.The Opposition is either confused or disingenuous, on one hand, they outrightly reject the successful use of the States of Emergency, which are recommended by the security professionals and which could continue to bring further gains. While, on the other hand, the Opposition is advocating for actions that could only be carried out under the legal framework of a State of Emergency.In his use of time, the Prime Minister has decided to focus on ensuring that plans are in place for the improved safety and security of the citizens.The Prime Minister will be completing a series of consultations with the Security Chiefs today and tomorrow, after which, or if possible earlier, he will finalize a letter to the Leader of the Opposition.last_img read more
