Africa ripped out Sri Lanka for 110 on the second day of the second test at Newlands on Tuesday South Africa did not enforce the follow-on and were 35 without loss at the close 317 runs ahead and in a powerful position to claim the victory they need to clinch the series Sri Lanka collapsed after going to tea on 56 for two with Rabada making a decisive breakthrough at the start of the final session when he had Dimuth Karunaratne brilliantly caught at point by Temba Bavuma for 24 A steady procession of wickets followed as captain Angelo Mathews and his deputy Dinesh Chandimal went cheaply after rash shots to Rabada’s persistent pace barrage The tall seamer had snared Kaushal Silva before tea and finished with figures of 4-37 Spinner Keshav Maharaj added the valuable wicket of Dhananjaya de

Gandhi stepped on to the dais at South Mumbai’s Zaveri Bazaar the hub of India’s gold and diamond trade his mission was clear — cash in on the ongoing unrest among traders to break into an important voter constituency of the BJP Since March 2 jewellers have been agitating against the Narendra Modi-led government over imposition of an excise duty They have downed shutters for an unprecedented 46 days and even raised slogans terming their vote to the BJP in the elections a “bhool” or a mistake Share This Article Related Article However there was a catch on Tuesday The Congress couldn’t afford to be seen pandering excessively to the trader community party sources conceded After all party leaders had liberally used the ‘baniyon ki sarkaar (government of traders)’ slogan to attack BJP governments in the state and the Centre Also the UPA government too had imposed similar levies on jewellers in 2005 and 2012 before rolling it back following a backlash So the Gandhi scion began his interaction with the trading community by raking up his “anti-poor” jibe against the Modi government “This government believes in crushing the poor and the weak It believes in oppressing weaker sections” he said Likening the fate of small jewellers and labourers with that of farmers Rahul remarked “They first tried to strangulate the farmers The government attempted to enact the Land Acquisition Act thrice but when the farmer and the Congress party stood up against it was forced to backtrack Modiji was heard saying in Mann Ki Baat that he had never wanted the Act in the first place And now the same is happening to you (jewellers and their workers) All because the government thinks that you are weak and they can easily strangulate you” Opting not to discuss the levies in detail Rahul said “This is not an excise duty on jewellers but an assassination attempt on small traders and workers You are being murdered But why are you being killed This is because the government feels you are weak The seven crore people engaged in the trade bring smiles to people’s faces daily but you do not have big money The reality is your work is sought to be given to a handful of big companies” He ended his speech which lasted just eight minutes with a promise that the Congress would raise the plight of the jewellers and the small workers when the Budget session of the Parliament reconvenes on April 25 But the assurance did not appear to have enthused everyone Requesting anonymity a jewellery manufacturer who said he had attended the rally to catch a glimpse of the “Congress Yuvraj” said “We have been on a strike from March 2 And they now want us to wait till April 25 How can we go on doing business” Despite the scorching heat about 4000 people gathered to participate in the rally Incidentally organisers were seen belting out numerous requests to the traders to participate in the rally until an hour before Rahul Gandhi arrived Some senior faces who are spearheading the stir including Fatehchand Ranka chairman of the All India Action Committee of Jewellers and Prithviraj Kothari among others remained absent Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam alleged the BJP brass had warned some top jewellers of dire consequences if they participated in the rally But Sarat Das (46) a goldsmith conceded that the jewellers themselves were divided over the new levy “Some on the manufacturing side do not mind the government’s proposal But most traders are against it” he said Workers employed in jewellery firms in Zaveri Bazaar showed maximum attendance For all the latest

description of the season gone by Delhi Daredevil captain Zaheer Khan Sportzpics/IPL Just look back at the past week and you will know why 67 185/3 214/3 66 – these are the last four scores of the Daredevils On the face of it this is a representation of too many inconsistencies in their thinking and strategy Dig a little deeper and there is also a marked difference between planning and execution Prior to that 67-all out in Mohali the Daredevils had faced the ignominy of crashing to 24/6 in a 143-run chase at the Wankhede At that point in time it was their third out of five defeats in succession Overall it was the biggest deflating point of this season You are allowed to ask why if you care enough that is Up until that point the Daredevils had only lost three out of five IPL 2017 games Their losing streak wasn’t really one in definition After all in an unpredictable T20 league replete with international superstars two back-to-back losses is a normal thing It is how you break out of such defeats and avoid a lengthy losing run is what ends up defining your season Assuredly then that first game against Mumbai was a defining moment for the Daredevils Along with Kolkata Knight Riders they have looked set for playoffs from the very outset of this season And yet Delhi managed to restrict them to 142/8 on their home turf It was a replication of their bowling efforts in the first game of the season against Royal Challengers Bangalore halted at 157/8 The Daredevils had failed to chase that score down and they failed to chase in Mumbai too showcasing that lessons hadn’t been learnt It was their greatest undoing for these were below par-scores at these two high-scoring grounds in the IPL Just imagine – two wins there and four points taking Delhi’s current tallying to 12 from 11 games still keeping them in contention Moreover it would have applied brakes to their losing run and who knows things would have looked even better than aforementioned From the looks of it though imagining hasn’t been the Daredevils’ problem this season They can cook up different possibilities and scenarios in every game and then dutifully respond with either no changes or too many changes They didn’t mix things up whilst losing five games on the trot and it took nine matches for Rishabh Pant to be elevated to No 3 That experiment lasted all of two games despite its raging success and you want to ask why You want to ask why Delhi’s winning combination from the previous game was changed Zaheer Khan didn’t play the last two games against either Sunrisers Hyderabad or Gujarat Lions with spinners Jayant Yadav and Shahbaz Nadeem stepping in to replace him Once fit again he was a sure-shot inclusion in the playing eleven The question still stands though — did Nadeem deserve to be dropped Did Khan merit automatic selection The one argument against Nadeem is that Daredevils did concede 200-plus in that last game Yet the arguments in his favour are that he was dropped unceremoniously in the middle phase of the tournament and then brought back for one game in a similarly haphazard fashion Additionally he was rendered useless in that game against Gujarat because left-handed Suresh Raina – dropped early – went on to play a long knock After the first over Nadeem bowled only one more and wasn’t effective for obvious reasons The bigger question though is of Khan’s selection Of course it does matter that he is the captain and thus the first name on the team sheet But we have seen instances of captains dropping themselves in IPL before In this IPL in eight games Khan has returned only seven wickets at an economy of 805 He returned 0-29 from four overs at 725 against Mumbai Indians Delhi of course like to think that their best bowling attack is based on pace But against the likes of Lendl Simmons and Kieron Pollard that plan came undone very quickly on a pitch where 180-odd has become par this IPL season The other captaincy impact was a change in batting order For some reason despite Pant’s success in the last game where Delhi successfully chased down 209 Shreyas Iyer came out to bat at No 3 ahead of Pant never mind that another target of 213 was at hand It didn’t work out as the young top-order once again played too many shots and exhibited no real staying prowess at the crease It is easy to get carried away in criticism here but it should be remembered that 200-plus is not chased in T20 cricket everyday And the Daredevils had already done ticked that off their list two days ago Their line-up’s inability to stay put and put up a resistance is what should dismay the Daredevils’ think-tank though This season was supposed to be one where the fruits from this youth-first approach could be reaped Ravaged with injuries to top batsmen like Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy it was still an opportunity to grow into their respective roles but this young bunch – barring a few shining moments – missed out on making a discernible impression Throughout this tournament Delhi have looked an unsettled team with too much talent on their hands So much so they do not completely know yet what to do with it and there are only three games left in the season Look at Mumbai in comparison an outfit that looks well oiled knows its plans well and executes them to the point Both of Daredevils’ games against Mumbai should make for a study for the Delhi management End point then is there any chance for the Daredevils going forward With eight points from 11 games and third-placed Kolkata on 14 points from 11 too the answer is no There is a mathematical possibility however If Hyderabad (13 points from 12 games) and Kings XI Punjab (10 points from 10 games) lose all their remaining matches then the Daredevils can sneak through if they win all their remaining games On evidence of how their 2017 season is going though it looks improbable if not (mathematically) impossible Islamabad: The country’s Federal
