first_imgThe 1975 World Cup was the genesis of modern One Day International (ODI) cricket as thousands of enthusiastic fans turned up in numbers to have a look at the gentlemen’s game in its brand-new avatar. The tournament took place in England and was accompanied with a lot of excitement thanks to the novelty factor surrounding the first-ever abridged version of the game. Eight participants comprising Australia, England, West Indies, India, Pakistan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and a composite team from East Africa, were separated into two groups of four.Players took to the field wearing traditional white flannels, used a red ball and had to field for a maximum of 60 overs. The first-ever ODI and opening match of the competition pitted hosts England against India in what was a historic day in the annals of the game. The game, itself, was a rather forgetful occasion as teams took time to come to terms with cricket’s newest format. Eventually, India lost to England by 202 runs at Lord’s but the technically astute Sunil Gavaskar’s 36 not out off 174 balls is what many remember this match for.Perhaps the best match from the inaugural edition of the World Cup was West Indies’ humdinger against Pakistan at Edgbaston. It was an ebb-and-flow encounter that saw the tide turn in both sides’ favour, multiple times in the contest. In the end, it was wicket-keeper Deryck Murray and pacer Andy Roberts’ 10th-wicket partnership that got West Indies over the finish line. Chasing a target of 267, all hope seemed lost when Pakistan reduced the Windies to 203 for 9. However, Murray and Roberts demonstrated their unflappable temperament and held their nerve to win the game with a wicket and two balls to spare.advertisementWest Indies’ win over Pakistan may have lit up the World Cup, but hosts England were still very much the favourites following wins in all their group games. England’s World Cup dream though came to an end in the semi-final courtesy of a remarkable all-round performance by Australia’s Gary Gilmour. After restricting England to a mere 93, Gilmour scored an unbeaten 28 to help the Aussies to a 4-wicket win and lead them to the final. Gilmour had earlier claimed six English wickets and finished with figures of 6 for 14, which was the best bowling figures in this World Cup.However, the Australians ran out of steam once up against the West Indies in the final at Lord’s. Rohan Kanhai’s 55 and skipper Clive Lloyd’s 102 helped Windies set a target of 292 for the Aussies to chase. Gilmour once again delivered for Australia with figures of 5 for 48, but it wasn’t enough to deny the West Indians the inaugural World Cup. Keith Boyce and Lloyd both took four scalps each in the second innings as the Windies won by 17 runs to become cricket’s first-ever World Champions. Lloyd was rightfully adjudged the Man of the Match after the game as West Indies began their era of dominance.Also Read | World Cup 2011: India end Australia’s dominance, crowned champions at homeAlso Seelast_img read more

Angel Di Maria scored his first hat-trick for Paris Saint-Germain as the Coupe de France holders cruised into the quarter-finals with a 4-1 win at Sochaux on Tuesday.Neymar was rested by Unai Emery after his birthday celebrations at the weekend but PSG did not miss the Brazilian as they remained on track to win the tournament for the fourth year in a row.Di Maria starred in Neymar’s absence, opening the scoring in the first minute by nodding in Kylian Mbappe’s cross, and the Argentina international added two more in the second half.

first_imgPrime Minister Justin Trudeau paid a visit to the oilsands on Friday, just a day after getting heckled and booed in Vancouver and Victoria for his approval of the TransMountain pipeline expansion. The project that has the neighbouring provinces of Alberta and B.C., at odds will see the pipeline’s capacity nearly triple from 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day giving Alberta heavy oil access to much needed foreign markets.“Our government has been unequivocal, this pipeline is in the national interest and will get built. We had a regulatory process that went through, an examination, an engagement with partners, and it was determined that this Kinder Morgan Pipeline expansion is in the national interest and that’s why it’s going to get built,” said Trudeau.He also didn’t take long to slam the Harper-era Conservatives by saying that through ten-years in power while Harper may have “topped up” the oilsands, his government wasn’t able to get a pipeline to tidewater approved because no one trusted them to protect the environment.Trudeau used that as an opportunity to once again tout his plan that links the environment and the economy.“Canadians are united on that, everyone wants to see their grandkids with both a protected natural world around them and good jobs and successful communities,” said Trudeau. “That’s something, we can and will work on together regardless of the fact that there’s still a choice to be made between either the economy or the environment, the only way to do this responsibly is to do this together.”Trudeau’s visit to Suncor’s Fort Hills site brought him to the most recently completed mega-project in the region, as when it hits full-production (within a month) it will produce 194,000 barrels of oil per day through its open pit mining operation.The Prime Minister, who gets more than his fair share of heat in this region spent 30-minutes in a lunch room with dozens of Fort Hills workers, answering questions off the cuff especially about the carbon tax and pipelines. Photo: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (middle) climbs the stairs into the cockpit of a Komatsu 780E heavy haul at Suncor’s Fort Hills oilsands site on Friday, Apr. 4, 2018. Bradley Karp / REPORTER His tour of the facility was led by Suncor CEO Steve Williams, who in February told the Financial Post that due to regulatory changes by the Trudeau government, his company would likely cut back on investments in Canada. The two were all smiles as Williams and Suncor staffers guided Trudeau around a Komatsu 980E heavy hauler, the Prime Minister even took a seat at the helm.“We’ve talked about market access, we’ve talked about market pressures which are the sum of taxation, royalties, the confidence in the regulatory process and I’m greatly encouraged by the conversation we’ve had today and I think it sort of speaks for itself,” said Williams. “The Prime Minister has taken the trouble to come here and spend some time with us and understand our challenges better so I think we’re going to get some help.”Williams went on to acknowledge how the environment for oilsands producers has changed in the last few years, from the price cut in 2014, taxation and regulatory overhauls along with the United-States going from their biggest customer to their biggest competitor, expediting the need for a pipeline to tidewater for foreign market access.While producers in the oilsands need that market access through pipeline, the province next door (British-Columbia) continues to throw up roadblocks. When Trudeau was asked head on what he’s doing about it, and how he’ll ensure the pipeline actually gets built, this was his response: “I’m continuing to engage regularly with British Columbia, there are a number of court cases going on that the Federal Government is monitoring closely, but as I said many times we have a regulatory process that was open, responsible, fair, heard from everyone, we made a decision around the fact that this pipeline is absolutely in the national interest, the federal government has the responsibility and ability to move forward on projects of the national interest, that’s exactly what we’re going to do, we’re going to get this pipeline built.”Trudeau’s visit to the region wrapped up with meetings with other oil executives as well as meeting with local First Nations and Metis leaders.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court Wednesday said it will go to the root of the alleged conspiracy and sensational claims made by a lawyer that there was a larger conspiracy to frame Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi in the sexual harassment allegations against him. A three-judge special bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra said if fixers continue to work and manipulate the judiciary as claimed, neither this institution nor any of “us” will not survive. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details The bench, also comprising justices R F Nariman and Deepak Gupta, asked lawyer Utsav Singh Bains, who has made claims of a larger conspiracy, to file another affidavit by Thursday morning after he claimed that he has some more “incriminating evidence”. The bench said it will take up the matter for hearing on Thursday. “We will inquire and go to the root of alleged claims of fixers at work and manipulating the judiciary. If they continue to work then none of us will survive… Fixing has no role to play in the system. We will inquire and take it to the logical end” it said. The bench also clarified that there is no connection in the hearing of Bains’ claims of larger conspiracy and the in-house inquiry ordered into the sexual harassment allegations against CJI. Earlier in the day, the apex court directed chiefs of the CBI, IB and Delhi Police to appear and meet in chambers the three judges who are hearing his claim that there was a larger conspiracy to frame CJI.last_img read more
