NZ spinners star in shock win over India

first_imgNAGPUR, India (AP): New Zealand’s spinners inflicted a shock 47-run defeat on tournament favourites India in the first game of the Super 10 stage at the ICC World Twenty20 yesterday. Left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner grabbed 4-11, leg-spinner Ish Sodhi took 3-18 and off-spinner Nathan McCullum added 2-15 on a helpful pitch as India were bowled out for 79 in 18.1 overs. New Zealand had earlier reached 126-7 in the Group Two match. Captain Kane Williamson’s decision to go in with three spinners paid off as India, which came into the tournament with 10 wins in 11 previous T20 games, failed to come to terms with the slow pitch. New Zealand have now beaten India in all five T20 games between the two teams, including two times at the World Twenty20. India had beaten South Africa inside three days in a Test here last year, but the turn on offer this time proved detrimental. Sodhi struck first ball as the in-form Virat Kohli (23) edged one to the wicketkeeper, at which stage India were 39-5. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni tried to rally his team, but his knock of 30 was of little use. “It was a low-scoring wicket,” Dhoni said. “I thought we restricted them to a good total, but the batting let us down. The shot selection kept putting pressure on the batsmen coming in. “They bowled well and exploited the conditions, but we lacked adaptability. We could have applied ourselves more.” Earlier, India restricted New Zealand to a moderate total with left-hander Corey Anderson holding the innings together. He scored 34 before being dismissed by pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah while trying to scoop the ball towards fine leg. Luke Ronchi got an unbeaten 21 off 11 balls down the order. “It was a tough surface,” Williamson said. “Any score was going to be tough here, but we would have liked to have a few more. We went in with this bowling attack after we had a look at the conditions.”last_img read more

SA, Moz step up fight against rhino poaching

first_img14 May 2014 South Africa and Mozambique held a follow-up meeting in Pretoria on Wednesday after the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on combating rhino poaching and other wildlife crime last month. A draft implementation plan was discussed at the meeting, which includes initiatives such as anti-poaching measures, fundraising, wildlife trafficking, community development, and raising awareness about the plight of the rhino. The implementation of the MoU in the field of Biodiversity Conservation and Management is expected to be finalised by the end of July. The two countries also agreed that the ministers responsible for the implementation of the MoU, South African Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa and Mozambican Tourism Minister Carvalho Muaria, would meet annually to discuss progress and identify areas for further cooperation. The steps being taken by the two countries since June 2013 on the matter of cross-border conservation of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area to address rhino poaching include: A total of 106 people have been arrested for rhino poaching-related offences since January this year. The Kruger National Park continues to bear the brunt of rhino poaching in South Africa, having lost 245 rhino so far this year. The only province not affected by poaching this year has been the Northern Cape. A total of 39 rhino have been poached in Limpopo, 37 in KwaZulu-Natal and 26 in North West province. South Africans are urged to report incidents of poaching and tip-offs to the anonymous tip-off lines 0800 205 005, 0860 010 111 or Crime-Line on 32211.

No More Wild West For Bring Your Own Devices

first_imgIn June 2007, Apple launched the first iPhone, marking a new era in corporate mobility. Before the fashionable mini-computer, people used smartphones for voice, texting and email. With the iPhone and its remarkable touchscreen users could also be entertained with music, video and games. Corporate executives became so attached to their hip device, they wanted to use it for business, so they bullied IT departments into providing access to email and corporate data. Employees soon joined their bosses and the bring-your-own-device trend began.Six years later, what started out with one smartphone has grown into an army – far too much for the Wild West atmosphere of BYOD to continue as it has been. Many companies that have allowed BYOD will soon be pulling back on such freedoms. While BYOD may not die altogether, it will carry stricter restrictions meant to finally get this trend under control.The Fate Of BYOD“BYOD is clearly an important trend, but we expect it to plateau in the coming one to two years as enterprises decide that the cost and security issues associated with unlimited BYOD do not warrant the anarchy and increased support costs it has often caused,” a recent report from tech analyst J.Gold Associates said.Where the iPhone use to be in a class by itself, the smartphone now competes with Android phones from Samsung, HTC, LG, Sony and 10 other vendors.  In addition, there is the BlackBerry and multiple devices running Microsoft’s Windows Phone.In 2010, Apple added the iPad to the chaos, creating a whole new market for tablet computers that brought lots of competitors from manufacturers in the Android camp.From the beginning, BYOD was a challenge for IT departments, which had to wrestle with data security, device manageability, support and app control. Nevertheless, enterprises went along with the trend and the majority allowed at least some workers to use their personal devices for business.But configuration, workflow and security issues were always making things difficult for IT. For instance, cyber-criminals saw an easy target in Android – with so many devices running older versions of the OS, hackers could target known vulnerabilities that were left unpatched by manufacturers and wireless carriers.BYOD LimitsA survey of enterprises that allow employees to use their own notebooks, smartphones and tablets found that nearly half had experienced a security breach. As a result, more than 40% of the companies either restricted mobile data access or installed security software, according to the poll of more than 400 IT professionals and chief executives conducted by Decisive Analytics and released in August 2012.Despite the breaches, only 12% of companies outright cancelled BYOD programs, an indication that most remained committed to providing flexibility to employees, while moving toward imposing rules.Indeed, Gold found that companies are realizing “the current mostly wide-open, laissez fare approach to BYOD is not sustainable longer term, and that more controls and better strategy are needed.”As companies clamp down on BYOD, employees will likely find they will have to surrender their devices in order for IT departments to install technology to protect corporate data and communications. At the same time, manufacturers are providing more enterprise features in order to ensure their products get approved for work and play.Samsung recently launched technology called SAFE that the vendor boasts brings enterprise-class security to selected devices. People who buy the Galaxy S III or S 4 smartphones, the Galaxy Note II smartphone/tablet hybrid or the Note 10.1 tablet have the option of including SAFE, which provides a container for corporate data and email in order to separate it from personal applications.BlackBerry, which has always been considered the gold standard in device security, has added similar data-separating technology in the new Z10.In time, enterprises are likely to give the nod to those devices that can meet the demands of consumers and businesses and shun those that don’t. So instead of BYOD, the policy of the future will be BYODA, or bring-your-own-device-for-approval.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.
