MS Dhoni middled almost every ball: Jharkhand coach pleasantly surprised.

Source –

Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has stunned Jharkhand coach Rajiv Kumar with his fluent batting even as the stumper started training for the first time since India’s loss in the semifinal of the 2019 World Cup against New Zealand in July last year.

Speaking to IANS, Kumar said that he was expecting a little rustiness from the batsman, but the balls seemed to be hitting the middle of the bat. The coach went on to add that the Chennai Super Kings skipper’s preparations have begun for the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League.

“I will be honest… I thought there will be a bit of rustiness as Dhoni has not trained for quite some time. The last time we had spoken, he had said that he would start in January and here you go. He is a man of his words and it came as no surprise that he was out there training with the guys just like any other regular Jharkhand player. But what surprised me most was how he middled almost every ball, be it in the pacer’s net or the spinner’s net. He even took throwdowns just like a player going through the batting drills does.

“I haven’t had any talks with him with regards to the national team and him donning the India jersey again. But, his preparations for the next edition of the IPL has begun and while the senior team will be busy playing the Ranji Trophy game from Sunday, Dhoni will continue training till the time he is in Ranchi,” the coach pointed.

Asked if Dhoni did anything specific in the two days that he has trained so far, Kumar said the former skipper spent a lot of time talking to the bowlers.

“He is such a professional and has been going on spending time with the youngsters, especially the bowlers. He is discussing the line and length that they should target and the ways to fox the opposition batsmen. He has been as vocal as can be expected from a senior player like Dhoni,” Kumar said.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday announced the men’s central contracts for the period between October 2019 and September 2020 and the major omission was Dhoni. While eyebrows were raised if this meant the end of the road for the Man with the Midas Touch, BCCI officials, as well as head coach Ravi Shastri, have made it clear that the IPL will decide if Dhoni will board the plane to Australia to play in the World T20.

“It all depends on when he starts playing and how he is playing during the IPL. Also, what are the other people doing with the wicket-keeping gloves or what is the form of those players as opposed to Dhoni’s form. The IPL becomes a massive tournament because that could be the last event after which more or less your 15 will be decided.

“There might be one player who might be there and thereabouts in case of an injury or whatever. But your team, I would say, would be known after the IPL. What I would say is rather than speculating who is where wait for the IPL to get over and then you are in a position to take a call on who are the best 17 in the country,” Shastri had told IANS.

Nitish Kumar will lead NDA in Bihar elections, says Amit Shah.

Source –

Bharatiya Janata Party president and Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said Nitish Kumar would lead the NDA in the Assembly election in Bihar due this year.

“I want to make it clear once and for all that NDA will contest the next Assembly election in Bihar under Nitish Kumar….Lalu’s dream to become chief minister again will not be fulfilled”, said Mr. Shah, while addressing a public meeting as part of the party’s ongoing Jan Jagran Abhiyan (people’s outreach programme) on the new citizenship law, CAA, in Vaishali, near Patna.

While listing the achievements of the NDA governments in Bihar and at the Centre, Mr. Shah slammed the Opposition and the Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad. “We took Bihar from lantern age to LED age, from loot to law and order, fodder scam to protection of cows and from jungle raj to janata raj”, he said.

He also appealed to the audience to dial 88662 on their mobile phone to support Prime Minister Narendra Modi and asked how many of them dialled the number. However, very few hands were raised.

“The new citizenship law is not for taking away anyone’s citizenship but to give citizenship to those who were persecuted and oppressed in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh and seek refuge in our country”, explained Mr. Shah, while asking people, “whether we should give them citizenship or not?”. “But, the opposition Congress party, Lalu Prasad, Arvind Kerjriwal and Mamata Banerjee are opposing this…they speak the same language of Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan”, he added.

“It was the Congress government which had divided the country earlier on religious grounds…30% Hindus were living each in East (now Bangladesh) and west Pakistan but today there are only 7% Hindus in Bangladesh and 15% in Pakistan — who is responsible for this?”, asked Mr. Shah. “Lalu, Rahul and Company should answer where they have gone”, he said.

“When slogans like Bharat tere tukde honge hazaar were chanted in JNU, the Modi government sent them to jail but the Kejriwal government was opposing it…don’t you think they should be sent to jail?”, Mr. Shah asked the audience. When the new Citizenship Act came in there was communal tension in several parts of the country. “Congress party, Mamata Banerjee, Arvind Kejriwal and Co. are responsible for the communal tension over CAA”, he alleged.

The BJP chief declared that “the process of construction of a Ram temple will begin in Ayodhya within four months”. He listed the abrogation of Article 370, 35 (A) and surgical strikes in Pakistan as the government’s achievements.

Mr. Shah asked party leaders and workers to undertake a door-to-door campaign in the State and explain to people the new citizenship law and how the Opposition has been spreading rumours over it.

On Tuesday Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had come to Gaya in Bihar to remove ‘misgivings’ on CAA but protesters sent up black balloons during his speech.

Meanwhile, Leader of Opposition in Bihar Assembly Tejashwi Yadav too began his four-day Pratishodh Yatra in Muslim-dominated Seemanchal (border districts) on Thursday to intensify the anti-CAA stir.

Dalai Lama visits Bihar CM’s residence, prays for peace.

Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama called on Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Friday at his official residence here, and held a prayer ceremony for peace and well-being of all, official sources said.

Mr. Kumar accorded a warm welcome to the exiled Buddhist monk, and presented him with a bouquet and ‘angavastram’, following which they posed for pictures, the sources said.

The Dalai Lama thereafter offered prayers before a ’Bodhi tree’ at the Chief Minister’s 1, Anney Marg bungalow along with other Buddhist priests, praying for all-round peace and prosperity.

The ‘Bodhi tree’ at the CM’s official residence is a sapling of the Mahabodhi tree at Bodh Gaya, under which Lord Buddha had attained enlightenment more than 2,000 years ago.

Several officials, including Deputy CM Sushil Kumar Modi, Assembly Speaker Vijay Kumar Choudhary, legislative council officiating chairman Haroon Rashid and state minister Ashok Choudhary, were also present at the occasion.

As a parting gift, the Chief Minister presented the monk with an idol of Lord Buddha.

The Dalai Lama visits Bihar every year in December-January as part of an annual retreat during which he offers public discourses at Bodh Gaya and conducts the “Kalachakra” tantric initiation ceremony.

Last week, the Chief Minister had called on the Dalai Lama at the Tibetan temple in Bodh Gaya, and apprised him of his government’s ‘Jal Jeevan Hariyali’ campaign.

Routes for electric buses finalised.

Get ready for shuttle service on electricity powered mini-buses in the state capital by October this year.

Ranchi Smart City Corporation Limited (RSCCL) has drawn up two circular routes for the shuttle services initially.

“Acting on the directive of the principal secretary of the state urban development department Ajoy Kumar Singh, we have finalised two routes for the 14+1-seater (14 passengers plus driver) electric bus shuttle services and bids will be invited for service providers soon,” a senior RSCCL official said on Friday.

“We are hopeful of starting the bus service before the festive season in October this year on these two routes. The routes have been drawn up in such a manner that they cover most parts of the city. Depending on the response, we will be increasing the routes later on,” the official added.

The buses will have low-floor configuration, which are easy to get on or disembark from.

The first round-trip route will start and end at Kantatoli and cover a distance of more than 10km. “The Kantatoli shuttle services will begin from Kantatoli Chowk and cover Bahu Bazaar roundabout, Munda Chowk, railway station, Patel Chowk, Sujata Talkies Chowk, Ratan Talkies Chowk, Sarjana Chowk, Subhash Chowk, Main Road (Mahatma Gandhi Chowk), Albert Ekka Chowk, Kutchery Chowk, Jail Chowk, Lalpur Chowk, Circular Road, and Dangratoli,” the source informed.

The other route of the shuttle service will begin from Booty Mor and cover Khelgaon roundabout, Kokar Chowk, Kantatoli Chowk, Bahu Bazaar, Munda Chowk, Sujata Chowk, Rajendra Chowk, Hinoo Chowk (near Ranchi airport), Birsa Chowk, Satellite Chowk, Argora, Harmu, Sahjanand Chowk, Ratu Road, Kishore Yadav Chowk, Suchna Bhavan, Machhli Ghar, and Bariatu Road.

“The second route will cover a distance of nearly 29 km,” the RSCCL source said. “The objective of introducing such buses — both fuel driven and battery operated — which have more seating capacity than the auto-rickshaws is to decrease traffic congestion caused by such auto-rickshaws as people will opt for such buses. We plan to roll out nearly 150 such buses.”

Urban development department spokesperson Amit Kumar said the routes had been planned carefully.

“The environment-friendly battery operated buses will ply on the two routes selected based on traffic density and cover most of the capital,” he said.

The existing fuel driven city buses (29-seater) will be made to ply on the six-lane ring roads outside the city touching the national highways. “The hybrid or CNG buses with better seating capacity (29-seater) will be made to ply on more routes which do not witness traffic jams,” Amit said.

Brace for rainy days in Jharkhand.

As earlier predicted by the meteorological department, several parts of the state are likely to witness light to moderate rain and thundershowers for the next three to four days.

A fresh western disturbance, formation of two cyclonic circulations, and a low pressure trough are expected to trigger light to moderate rain over Jharkhand.

A bulletin issued by the Ranchi centre of the India Meteorological Department on Friday afternoon indicated formation of a cyclonic circulation over eastern Madhya Pradesh extending up to 900m above mean sea level.

Another cyclonic circulation was hovering over western Uttar Pradesh, while the trough at 1.5km above mean sea level was stretched between the cyclonic circulation over Uttar Pradesh to south Gujarat across western Madhya Pradesh.

“The cyclonic circulations coupled with the trough and a fresh western disturbance would result in rainfall activity over Jharkhand for the next four days at least,” said S.D. Kotal, director of the Ranchi Meteorological Centre.

According to the weatherman, light to moderate rain was expected at isolated places over north-western ( Palamau and Chatra) on Friday night. The Ranchi Meteorological Centre issued forecast of light to moderate rain at isolated places over central and northern Jharkhand on Saturday, while on Sunday showers are expected in several districts in southern, central and north-eastern parts of the state.

The Met office also predicted rainfall activity in southern and north-western parts of Jharkhand on Monday and Tuesday. The weathermen also issued a warning of thunder accompanied by lightning in isolated pockets over the weekend.

The adverse weather systems resulted in a change in the wind pattern. Currently, the south-easterly wind is dominating over Jharkhand resulting in moisture incursion and rise in night readings.

Data revealed that minimum readings in Ranchi and many other districts including Daltonganj, Simdega, Khunti, Bokaro, Ramgarh, Dumka, Seraikela-Kharsawan and West Singhbhum witnessed a rise.

Ranchi on Friday recorded a minimum temperature of 11.4°C, two notches above normal.

Daltonganj recorded 14°C, five points above normal.

The local IMD observatory in Jamshedpur on Friday recorded a minimum of 13.4°C, three degrees above normal. Chaibasa in neighbouring West Singhbhum district recorded 11.8°C, three points above normal.
