Dear Gautam Gambhir, get over your insecurity, ESPNCricInfo didn't say Dhoni's shot won the World Cup


On Thursday morning, former India opener and now BJP MP Gautam Gambhir hit out at cricket site ESPNCricinfo for their tweet on the 2011 World Cup.

For those who choose to remember, Gambhir was the top scorer in that match with a gritty 97, after India lost Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, and Virat Kohli. Gambhir, as always, curbed his naturally aggressive instincts and made his runs off 122 balls with 9 hits to the boundary. At the end, when you look back, he played a reckless shot to get himself bowled by rushing down the track, getting outside leg stump and going for the slog.

True. But they never said this shot won us the worldcup. They are only saying this shot took Indians into jubilation. Relax kijiye cricket ke Advaniji.

In an earlier interview, Gambhir had subtly blamed Dhoni for his dismissal. Dhoni had reportedly reminded Gambhir that he required three runs to get to his century, which distracted him and subsequently led to his dismissal.

But this is about Gambhir's tweet. While he is right about the fact that the entire team won, everyone will remember three things in that match - the team lifting Sachin Tendulkar on their shoulders, Yuvraj Singh breaking down after the win, and MS Dhoni's six. Some people remember Gambhir's 97. Fewer remember that Sri Lankan batsman Mahela Jayawardene scored a century in that match.

While statistics are vital in sport, moments is what makes us love the game. Will people remember Kris Srikkanth for making 38 runs, which happened to be the highest score for both sides during the 1983 World Cup? Or will they remember Kapil Dev running like a gazelle to catch a mistimed pullshot hit by Viv Richards? Will they remember that Australia won the 1987 World Cup by seven runs, or will they still talk about Mike Gatting's reverse sweep?

There are so many moments that make us remember cricket matches. The recent super over in the 2019 World Cup final; Ben Stokes roaring after single-handedly winning a Test match for England at Headingly; Pakistan's Javed Miandad jumping up and down to make fun of Kiran More during the 1992 World Cup; the underarm ball bowled by Trevor Chappell during an ODI against New Zealand; Yuvraj hitting Stuart Broad for 36 runs in an over; Sreesanth catching Misbah ul Haq of the bowling of Joginder Sharma during the finals of the inaugural World T20; and even the 'ball of the century' that Shane Warn bowled to Mike Gatting.

It's not even cricket, the world of sport is like this. When Roger Federer, Rafa Nadal and Novak Djokovic win a Grand Slam, fans will remember the final moments, the joys, and the heartbreaks. Nobody will come up to you 10 years later and say Federer won 6-4, 7-6, 6-7, 4-6, 9-7. They may come and discuss the last set just for memories, like they did when Goran Ivanisevic won that fairytale Wimbledon, or when John Isner won that marathon first round match on Court Number 1, but those moments are few and far between

If you were to come and say you remember everything about the match, I'd say you're either a cricket statistician or you are lying, because when we sit around to discuss sport, we discuss the moment. MS Dhoni's six was a moment. Gautam Gambir's 97 - however crucial it was to the match - was just part of the scorecard.

India, Thailand and Germany threaten jail time for April Fool’s Day jokes on coronavirus


April Fool's Day is celebrated on the first of the month, but this year it’s different. In order to tackle rumours on coronavirus, India, Thailand and Germany have warned against spreading COVID-19 related misinformation on April Fool's Day.

On April Fool's Day usually people play tricks with other people and prank others for fun. But now countries have threatened jail time for those to spread rumours which could put lives at risk.

On Tuesday, in India, Maharashtra state's cyber security unit said it would take legal action against anyone spreading fake news on April Fools' Day.

Taking to Twitter, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh wrote, "Tomorrow's April 1st. The annual tradition making an 'April Fool' of people has already begun on WhatsApp & social media. The state govt won't allow anyone to spread rumours/panic on Corona. I've instructed Maharashtra cyber security unit to act swiftly & strongly such miscreants."

According to Reuters, Germany’s health ministry also warned against such activity under the heading “Corona is no joke.” Even a British PR agency, Taylor Herring, whose clients include TV channels and international brands has advised all companies to ditch the jokes this year, reported thejakartapost.com.

There are 754,948 people worldwide who have been infected with the coronavirus, announced the World Health Organization adding that 36,571 have died from it so far. The virus has spread to more than 200 countries and territories since it emerged in China in late December, according to the latest figures published on the WHO website.




Media house cannot publish COVID-19 news without cross-checking facts with us: Centre requests SC


The Centre has requested the Supreme Court to issue a directive that no media house will publish any coronavirus-related news unless it cross-checks details with the government, Live Law reported on Tuesday.

The request was made by the Centre in response to public interest litigations seeking directions for welfare of migrant workers, and measures to control the pandemic transmission.

 
 

On Sunday, the Centre directed the states to strictly follow the nationwide lockdown norms and stop the influx across the cities.

Not content with mere advisories, which the states are often known to disregard, Cabinet Secretary Rajiv Gauba, through video conferencing on Sunday morning, instructed the Ministry of Home Affairs, state Chief Secretaries and Directors General of Police, to "seal" the district and state borders.

 
 

The Centre further wants the migrants to stay put where they are and has advised the states to arrange shelter, food and other facilities for them at their workplace.

Last week, Gauba admitted that there was a gap between the number of international passengers who need to be monitored by the States /UTs and the actual number of passengers being monitored.

Gauba further added that this may seriously jeopardise India's efforts to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus

 
 
 



Nizamuddin mosque: Home Ministry steps up effort to trace people who returned from Tablighi Jamaat function


Mumbai: Maharashtra Public Health Minister Rajesh Tope has directed the department personnel to find out who have returned to the state after attending the Tablighi Jamaat function in Delhi.

The number of cases as at 10 am on Tuesday was 230, which increased by 82 to 302. This rise took place in the last four days, confirmed the state public health department.

Of the 82 confirmed cases, 59 are from Mumbai, 13 from Mumbai Metropolitan Region, five in Pune, 3 in Ahmednagar and two in Buldana. Tope said he has directed the department authorities and Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation to trace people, as it should be done on a massive scale.

"I have also asked to trace how many people have returned to Mumbai after attending the Tablighi Jamaat function in Delhi. The strategy is tracing, testing and treatment to curb community level transmission.

 
 

This will be helpful to stop the state from entering the third phase of the coronavirus pandemic,’’ he noted. Tope’s directives are important, as the Tablighi Jamaat headquarters in Delhi’s Nizamuddin area has developed into one of the biggest hot spots in India.

On Tuesday, the area was sealed and 800 people moving out in buses were quarantined in different parts of the city, as several more positive cases with links to the gathering held here in mid-March emerged.

In Delhi, 24 people, out of the 102 tested for the virus after being taken to Lok Nayak Hospital, were found positive so far, while reports of nearly another 200 taken to two other hospitals is still awaited.

Another 11, who had attended the gathering of Tabligh-e-Jamaat, were found infected in Andhra Pradesh, the state government said on Tuesday. One patient was a close contact of a person who had attended the meet.

What Nizamuddin mosque organisers did was Jahalat: Twitter fumes after 6 people die of coronavirus in Telangana


There has been a lot of outrage over the deaths of six people from Telangana, whom the government says, participated in a religious congragation in New Delhi's Nizamuddin area.

Over 2,000 delegates, including those from Indonesia and Malaysia, had attended the congregation of Tablighe-Jamaat, a Muslim religious organisation, from March 1 to 15. Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the lockdown on March 22.

According to residents, many people continued to stay at the Jamaat's 'Markaj' (Centre) even after the congregation had wound up.

A lot of people have questioned the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal for its inaction, although the latter has said stern 'action' will be taken against those people who organised the gathering.

Kejriwal has ordered the registration of a FIR against a maulana who had led the congregation; the government will also launch a house-to-house mapping exercise in two nearby colonies to check for coronavirus cases. The Delhi Police, CRPF officials and medical teams went to the locality late on Sunday night after reports surfaced that many people were showing symptoms of the disease.

Some people feel that the unplanned lockdown forced people to stay inside the mosque.

Just one factual correction: There was no lockdown when people gathered there. 

The Tablighi Jamaat congregation was organised between 1st Mar- 15th Mar.

There was no strict advisory by the govt too. In fact, there were few travel restrictions.

At least 100 people were tested. The results are expected on Tuesday. Alarm bells started ringing after a man in his 60s, who had attended the congregation, succumbed to corona in Srinagar last week.

The congregation was attended by preachers from several countries, including Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Dubai, Uzbekistan and Malaysia. About 600 Indians from different parts of the country also participated. The Indian members of the group left on trains and flights. Hotels in the area that had housed people from the congregation have been sealed.




Karnataka's Big Brother selfie app fails: Home-quarantined people unable to take pictures, upload images

The Karnataka government has also asked people to dowload an app called 'Quarantine Watch' that is available in the Play Store, but not in the Apple Store, which puts iPhone users in a bit of a predicament.

Furthermore, the 17 reviews in the Play Store are not favourable for the app, which is probably in its early stages, with most users saying that they are unable to upload photographs to show that they are under quarantine.
