Colombian president to visit tense border city

LONDON – The royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and

first_img LONDON – The royal wedding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank was a big hit in terms of British TV viewership.ITV said Saturday that it added roughly 2.1 million viewers during its extended morning program that showed live coverage of Friday’s wedding at Windsor Castle.ITV was the only U.K. broadcaster that showed the entire service live from St. George’s Chapel.Competitors BBC and Sky News showed snippets of the wedding and the crowds thronging the streets of Windsor outside the castle.BBC blamed a failure of its voice recognition system for a subtitle that briefly referred to Eugenie’s “beautiful breasts” rather than her “beautiful dress” as she walked up the stairs to the chapel.Eugenie is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and ninth in line to the British throne. by The Associated Press Posted Oct 13, 2018 4:57 am PDT Last Updated Oct 13, 2018 at 6:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email UK viewership up for Princess Eugenie wedding coveragelast_img read more

News Australia arrived in India via Dubai and it wasn’t just for reasons of a convenient flight At the ICC Academy the Baggy Greens ordered bespoke tracks for their batsmen and spinners with wickedly spinning bald pitch tops Bharat Sundaresan speaks to those at ground level in Dubai to find out just how the men from Down Under dug deeper in the desert to conquer their spin demons Imran Haiderhad realised in the first couple of days itself that what he was partaking in was unlike any other preparatory camp for a joust in the subcontinent He’d seen the Australians land in Dubai with a radical plan He’d also seen them go about their unique drills like men possessed whether it was practising on some horrid pitches or curbing their natural instincts to unnatural levels But the UAE leg-spinner who along with teammate Muhammad Qasim had been called in as net bowler still wasn’t prepared for what he saw upon his arrival on the third afternoon The nets had been taken down And there they were the Australian team dragging out plastic chairs under the hot Dubai sun to the centre of the ICC Academy Oval before placing them at where the short-leg and silly-point would stand for a spinner It wasn’t just Haider who was left bemused It took even the academy ground-staff a while and some strong words with the Australian management to finally allow chairs being placed on their square It’s an image however that came back to Haider last week as he sat watching the final day of the Ranchi Test between India and Australia on TV As Shaun Marsh and Peter Handscomb stood firm on a crumbling pitch and saved the day to keep the series alive it all started making sense to him For this is exactly the dire scenario that he had seen the Aussies prepare for even if it was in a way that left him scratching his head The only difference being the plastic chairs here had been replaced by KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara at the close-in positions “It wasn’t just a case of you were out if the ball touched any of the chairs on the full You then had to go sit outside with your pads on and wait your turn to come back in once everyone else was done It was basically to teach them that in India you get to commit only one mistake After that you’ll have to sit outside for the rest of the day or spend the next three days on the field” recalls Haider “It was a game of patience that was being taught to them the tough way And like they’ve shown so far in India and especially in that third Test it’s working” he adds Nathan Lyon practises at the academy during the Australian team’s stint in Dubai before the tour of India Unlike Haider who’s played domestic cricket back in Lahore with the likes of Ahmed Shehzad and Umar Akmal and isn’t new to bowling at top-quality opposition Qasim is still a promising UAE batsman who can bowl handy off-spin And he reveals having been surprised when coach Dougie Brown the former England and Scotland seamer took him to the Aussie nets While clearly overwhelmed at the prospect of meeting and bowling to the likes of David Warner and Steve Smith Qasim was to soon comprehend that it was the Aussie contingent that was benefiting more from his presence there than the other way around Qasim who originally hails from Sialkot recalls having been given a clear directive: get our batsmen out “Sriram Australia’s spin consultant was the one giving us instructions To the left-handers I was asked to largely target the stumps and their pads and it was outside the off-stump on the generous rough for the right-handers Every two overs Sriram would ask me to change angles and come over or around the wicket” says Qasim But he does recall having bowled Shaun Marsh and Glenn Maxwell and then being cheered by the Aussie camp “They weren’t making it easy for each other If a batsman made a mistake or played a loose shot everyone else would tease them and laugh with us There was a lot of banter till they got their act right” Haider chips in *** THE ICC Academy located at Dubai Sports City is like the cricketing version of the Holodeck—that fascinating virtual reality platform on Star Trek which could evoke any scenery or scenario and would be used by the crew for tactical training For here you’ll not only find state-of-the-art training and fitness facilities indoor and outdoor practice nets and two floodlit ovals; but an assortment of 38 pitches that come in various flavours mainly Asian but also WACA Gabba and English And somehow it just seems right that they should be located in Dubai a city renowned for its artificial islands and canals To the extent that every year a number of county teams land up at the Academy for their pre-season camps in February and March because ironically the four “English” pitches in Dubai are more English than the ones they’ll find back home at this time of the year And as Will Kitchen the Academy director reveals already over the last couple of weeks Alastair Cook has scored a century for Essex against Middlesex while James Anderson has made a successful recovery from his latest injury with Lancashire The five counties—who are now competing in the Emirates T20 tournament—are sharing the facilities presently with the Papua New Guinea national team as well as 22 coaches from around the world for a level 2 licensing programme The old cliché has it that if you stand long enough at New York’s Times Square you’ll see every nationality walk by From what Kitchen says the Academy might well be the Times Square of world cricket with several cricketing nations having camped here at some point Last year around 42 international and professional teams made their way through here and they included West Indies who spent five-and-a-half weeks here preparing for their eventual crowning as World T20 champions for a second time “We are still only three months into 2017 but already 29 teams have come and trained here” says Kitchen Those 29 of course involved a first-timer in the Australian national team who had only ever used the facilities here during the Test against Pakistan in October 2014 But they didn’t just land up in Dubai with the mere intention of getting acclimatized to Asian conditions and going through the motions Like Toby Lumsden the Melbourne-based head curator at the Academy who’s just commenced his second stint here puts it they had very specific plans along with some “special” demands Kevin Pietersen now a renegade is a regular at the academy Lumsden is used to accommodating requests from touring parties and like he says “most of them including the English ask for classical Asian pitches with some turn but nothing too exciting” But what Australia had in mind and subsequently were provided even if Lumsden was only pleased with it at a professional level were pitches that he describes as “disgraceful” and “lacklustre” “I’ve never seen a team ask for that kind of pitches But this was a special request from an international team and a one-off so we just went through with it That’s what the Academy was built for” he says It meant that Lumsden and his staff had to apply different techniques to ensure the Aussies got their tailor-made debauched pitches They had to rough up the batting lengths and stop watering the pitch before using a light roller to ensure that the dry pitch crumbles That wasn’t all The dust-bowl also needed to have enough rough areas where the fast bowlers would land outside the off-stump for both left and right handers “We put down some dry dirt or clay So they are like really worn foot-holes We made them half an inch deep and put dry clay So when a spinner pitches the ball there there’s considerable turn” reveals Lumsden The Australian who started off making pitches for Shane Warne at the Junction Oval in St Kilda and twice came close to taking over at the MCG does admit that while Australian bowling coach David Saker—an old confidant—did appreciate the wickets that had been provided to the visitors both in the nets and for centre practice the curator wasn’t personally chuffed about it The hectic nine-month schedule of non-stop cricket at the Academy grounds means that every pitch is in circulation once in six weeks which ensures that they are worn out by the time the season ends in around May “When we scuff up a wicket and remove all the grass like this it takes a whole season to regenerate the grass It would have been a real struggle if the Aussies had come calling at the start or during the middle of our season since we didn’t have to rotate those wickets now” he says Lumsden remained a tad sceptical about what the Aussies had made him do to his wickets till the time he saw Stephen O’Keefe run through India in the first Test at Pune on a pitch that was later deemed as being “poor” by the ICC “Pitches aside I’ve never seen a team come here with such technical plans Any touring team benefitting from what they’re trying to achieve here and to get results is always a good feeling That’s the vision that Rod Marsh had promoted when he was in-charge here during my first stint” says Lumsden *** HAIDER and Qasim too were flabbergasted the first time they saw the pitches that they would have to bowl on In the leggie’s words “aisa lag raha tha ki isko haath hi nahi lagaya hai” But while Smith Warner and even the senior Marsh were names that they had come to idolize some of the younger members of the team were still alien to them Haider recalls being alarmed when he saw Matt Renshaw pad up and walk out to bat For minutes ago he had mistaken the fresh-faced Queensland opener to be a coach’s son or a U-19 player who had just wandered into the arena “But here was this extremely young-looking boy padded up and ready to face me The first two balls I just tossed up gently because I wasn’t sure how he’ll cope with it and he drove on both occasions powerfully past me He then ended up showing the best defensive technique among all of them And I thought this boy could actually score runs in India” he says Handscomb is the one Qasim found the most difficult to bowl to and he puts it down to the right-hander’s use of the crease and ability to disturb the rhythm of the spinner Most of the talk between the Australian coaching staff and their batsmen the two Emiratis recall were about not focusing on the pitch or the rough patches but simply the ball and keeping it out safely “Handscomb did it the best in my opinion” says Haider “His initial movements in his stance reminded me of Ijaz Ahmed but his bat comes straight like Shivnarine Chanderpaul and he plays spin like an Asian batsman He uses his feet a lot but also gets a lot of runs square of the wicket” Maxwell was another batsman who spent a lot of time with the two spinners Haider too much to the leg-spinner’s surprise Otherwise he had been made to bowl a lot at the left-handers who tried playing the sweep off him while batting without a front-pad But Maxwell who would then go on to score a maiden Test ton at Ranchi would insist on Haider coming along every time he stepped in to the nets “I wondered why he was doing so considering we knew India weren’t going to play a leg-spinner in their playing XI But it was my trajectory that they were getting used to and he practised the reverse-sweep for hours even if he didn’t connect too often” says Haider “It’s not like they didn’t practise shots But they were only off loose balls They knew that however horrid this pitch was the Test one had to be at least slightly better and they would need to score runs and not just defend” Qasim adds The Australians have reiterated the benefits of their Dubai sojourn on various occasions since landing in India But most of it has been about their batsmen getting used to playing long hours in the heat of the Asia and also their defensive play But the UAE spinners and Lumsden also talk about the hours put in by the Aussie spinners and the poignant plans that they were working on The Australians had contacted Kitchen and his team about their plans for holding a pre-tour camp in Dubai well before Christmas And one of their requests had been for SG Test balls the types that they would be encountering in India While the batsmen seemed to get used to facing the SG with its proud seam especially the openers who had Haider and Qasim come at them with the new-ball not all the spinners were comfortable with it “O’Keefe was a worry for them He was hardly getting any wickets in practice matches or even troubling the batsmen In addition he was struggling for control and dishing out many full-tosses and loose deliveries I really feared for him and was sure the Indians would punish him” says Haider “And he takes six wickets in each innings” he adds with a chuckle ***IT’S THE English who were the first to recognize and acknowledge the importance of Dubai as the perfect transit stop in lieu of preparing for a tour to the subcontinent They were here in 2012 when Andy Flower the then head coach is known to have even replicated crowd sounds and those of close-in fielders to get his players used to dealing with India’s ambient ruckus Like Lumsden says though “drier” and “dustier” were their only add-ons in that order with regards to pitches The ECB have had a lengthy ongoing dialogue with the Academy which means even their Lions and junior teams are regular visitors to Dubai It’s like they never land in India before having stuck their feet in the sand of Dubai Even their U-19 team had indulged in a week-long camp before embarking on a tour of India a couple of months earlier Other teams like New Zealand and West Indies too have spent time here though it’s the Associates who make more annual visits to these parts Indian cricket though has largely kept a distance from the UAE landscape though most of the IPL teams practised at the Academy during the 2014 IPL But according to Kitchen the Academy no longer caters to only teams There’s a new breed of visitor to these parts more of the freelance variety There are T20 leagues sprouting all across the world and the number of cricketers representing themselves is burgeoning by the day And the Academy could soon become somewhat of a high-profile AirBnB pit-stop for weary travellers of the cricket world as they crisscross the globe to ply their trade in the various leagues Kitchen says that former England captain Kevin Pietersen has already pioneered that movement and is a routine visitor at the Academy “KP comes a lot He will drop by when he’s on his way for a tournament He will come hit a few balls for two or three days He likes it here Generally for now we have more young professionals trying to establish themselves rather than well-known ones so far We have one young English pacer who’s just out of the professional system for now trying to make his way back in” says Kitchen “We don’t advertise it at that level for professionals It’s more organic It’s the same for everyone from a local cricketer to Virat Kohli if he ever wants to come on his own” the director explains So it’s basically like how you book your local football rink—inquire about availability and then book it for a fee that Kitchen insists isn’t substantial It seems only a matter of time then before the likes of Dwayne Bravo and Chris Gayle start dropping in for a quick swing and pummel Haider and Qasim though like the rest of the UAE team have the luxury of calling the Academy their home considering this is pretty much their base And though neither got the chance to rub shoulders with Pietersen during his visits they are still soaking in the experience of having not just bowled to the likes of Smith and Warner but in a way having influenced their unexpected success on Indian soil They both agree on not having seen off the Aussies with any great confidence “Getting used to the ball here and the pitches is one thing But when they left I still thought they would have little chance against Ashwin and Jadeja the way they were bowling” says Haider But little did they realize then that they would end up playing anonymous but not less vital roles in Australia presently still holding hopes of retaining the Border-Gavaskar Trophy Qasim sums it up best when he says “The last day they called us over and thanked us for our help Even they didn’t seem that confident of doing as well as they have And to think unke jeet mein hamara haath hai” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: AFP | Charlotte | Updated: August 9 2017 5:23 pm Jordan Spieth won his third major titletwo weeks ago at the British Open (Source: Reuters) Top News Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroymake their bids for golfing history when the 99th PGA Championship tees off at Quail Hollow with heavy rain and storms in the forecast World number two Spieth who won his third major titletwo weeks ago at the British Open would become the youngest golfer to complete a career Grand Slam by winning the year’s last major The 24-year-old American who also won the 2015 Mastersand US Open could become only the sixth man to sweep the four major titles in a career after Jack Nicklaus Tiger Woods Ben Hogan Gary Player and Gene Sarazen Spieth would be 24 years and 17 days old on Sunday aboutsix months younger than Woods — the youngest so far to win all four majors — was when he won the 2000 British Open to complete his career slam And Spieth could become the first player to complete a career slam with a victory at the PGA Championship Fourth-ranked McIlroy a 28-year-old from Northern Ireland could become only the third player to win five majors before turning 30 joining Nicklaus and Tiger Woods But McIlroy missing only the Masters to complete his own career Grand Slam hasn’t won a major since the 2014 PGA Championship What he has done however is win twice at Quail Hollow and lost another in a playoff And shown he can play well in wet conditions notably in taking his first major title at the 2011 US Open at Congressional Spieth shies from the favorite role saying “I’d say Rory is probably the guy to beat” Las Vegas oddsmakers agree giving McIlroy a 7-1 chance with Spieth at 8-1 Asked what odds he’d give himself McIlroy cited two wins in eight starts at Quail Hollow — “8-2 decent odds” “I’ve won a couple times I like PGA Championship setups They are fair” McIlroy said “If I’m the favorite I’m the favorite I’m happy with that means I’m playing well” Beware the Green Mile McIlroy credits his improved form in recent weeks a share of fourth in last month’s British Open and of fifth in last week’s World Golf Championships event in Akron with confidence from casinos “I think it’s partly to do with the upturn in form that I’ve had over the last few weeks and then my history on this golf course” he said “I think it’s a little bit of both” Changes have been made to the layout since McIlroy’s victories in 2010 and 2015 when he broke his own course record with a 61 in the third round “I think the changes are really good” McIlroy said “It makes the first six holes a lot more challenging “I still feel like the golf course gives you plenty of chances It’s going to play long this week with the weather It will probably play a couple of strokes harder than it used to play” The closing three-hole stretch at Quail Hollow “The Green Mile” offers water and hazards galore in a classic tough finishing run “It will be an exciting finish if there’s a few guys up around the lead at that point” McIlroy said Matsuyama DJ in title hunt World number one Dustin Johnson says he has once more found the form that delivered him three consecutive titles in February and March before a fall and back injury on the eve of the Masters derailed his campaign And he’s happy to have it wet so the course plays longer with the greens holding better “That there is going to cut the field in half” Johnson said “It’s hard It’s long You can’t fake it around here Everything has got to be good “It’s a little soft The greens will be a little more receptive That doesn’t make it any easier You’ve still got to make your shots” And everyone will be watching Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama after his closing 61 to win the WGC Akron title on Sunday “What Hideki did was pretty impressive” McIlroy said “He’s playing well and he hits it plenty long to contend around here His confidence is high coming into this week I’m pretty sure he’ll be a factor this week” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy:

the ‘purple cap’ after his 3-19 set up a comprehensive win over Gujarat Lions (Source: IPL) Top News Rashid Khan has set the Indian Premier League alight just two matches into his maiden season and while he is enjoying the cut and thrust of the lucrative Twenty20 competition the teenage Afghan spinner says playing Test cricket is his ultimate dream Sunrisers Hyderabad raised eyebrows by splurging 40 million Indian rupees ($620780) in February’s auction to land the unheralded leg-spinner from Afghanistan where cricket is highly popular but sporting facilities are pitifully inadequate after decades of war However Hyderabad had clearly done their homework as Rashid grabbed the top wicket-taker’s ‘purple cap’ on Sunday after his 3-19 set up a comprehensive win over Gujarat Lions Rashid is the first Afghan to play in the IPL and while he is enjoying his time in the limelight he has not lost sight of his long-term goals “The target is – I should play Test cricket for my country” the 18-year-old told Reuters in a telephone interview before the game against Gujarat “That’s my main target to be called a Test cricketer” Afghanistan are knocking on the door of Test cricket after beating Ireland in last month’s ICC Intercontinental Cup and Rashid said it would be “wonderful” to play a five-day match Associate teams do not play Test cricket but Afghanistan’s steady progress has boosted their chances of joining ‘Full Members’ like India and Australia in that elite club For now though Rashid has to be content with the shorter forms of the game He says he is using his time in the IPL to learn from elite players pick the brains of top coaches and get used to performing in front of huge crowds “It’s been a wonderful experience playing with big names like (David) Warner Yuvraj (Singh) Kane Williamson We’ve one of the best coaching staff that includes Tom Moody and (Muttiah) Muralitharan It changes your game” he added “To be part of such a wonderful team also shows that I’ve something and I’m capable of giving” Rashid impressed immediately against Royal Challengers Bangalore claiming two wickets and his googly is so well camouflaged that even Brendon McCullum and Aaron Finch could not read it in the match against Gujarat But he would never have had the chance to shine without Hyderabad’s gamble in the Feb 20 auction in which even Imran Tahir who tops both the one-day and Twenty20 bowling rankings went unsold AUCTION SURPRISE Rashid was touring Zimbabwe with the Afghanistan team when he received a call from his family early one morning asking him to follow the auction “I woke up and was watching the auction Imran Tahir’s name came and went I was a little bit tense and was thinking if he was not taken then how would I be “It was wonderful to be part of an IPL team You can’t express that feeling” he said South Africa leg-spinner Tahir later joined Pune as a replacement and is the joint highest wicket-taker with Rashid after Sunday’s matches Hyderabad also signed Rashid’s Afghan team mate Mohammad Nabi though for a more modest three million rupees Rashid said his IPL stint would inspire similar dreams in Afghanistan where he and his team mates had to overcome a lack of facilities to make an impression “It means a lot for Afghanistan cricket It’s a big thing for a player from an associate member to play in such a big event like IPL” he said “It’s a wonderful message to all the players in Afghanistan — that if you work hard and perform well you can achieve any target” England’s Ben Stokes was the biggest winner at the auction with Rising Pune Supergiants paying him a staggering 145 million rupees and while Rashid remains quietly confident of justifying his own price tag he has not decided how he will spend the money “I have nothing in my mind I’ve been playing non-stop cricket for the last three months “I have not been to home for a long time Once I’m free get some time and go home I’d discuss with

the Agency to sign up Bulger a “smaller fry” as an informant to net the Mafia His passionate defence of Bulger should raise some eyebrows but evidently not enough If that’s not enough Connolly and his fellow officers discuss this arrangement at shouting volume down open corridors If the Mafia doesn’t have a man inside too well it has to be the Mafia’s dumbest move Bacon is one of those fellow FBI officers while the talented Saarsgard and Cochrane are Bulger’s men or allies However apart from Bulger and Connolly we get just cardboard versions of the others by their side Cumberbatch is Bulger’s Senator brother who willingly looks the other way Again the relationship between the two needs more airing but Black Mass steers clear of such complex stuff Covering the events between 1975 and 1992 Black Mass is essentially about FBI’s arrangement with Bulger that was only used by the latter to further his criminal run It is told through confessions by several of his crew now turned approvers In 1992 with the authorities closing in on him Bulger had gone on the run and remained missing till he was captured in 2012 When it does land its punches well Black Mass shows what could have been possible A dinner that freezes cold under Bulger’s creeping menace first towards a compromised FBI offcer and then Connolly’s wife is chilling You suspect that’s what lies at the heart of the Whitey

Karangasem (Indonesia): Vehicles laden with food masks and bedding have been dispatched to help more than 57000 people who have fled a volcano on the tourist island of Bali as rising magma and increased tremors fuel fears of an imminent eruption Mount Agung about 75 kilometres (47 miles) from the Indonesian tourist hub of Kuta has been rumbling since August threatening to erupt for the first time since 1963 "The chance that an eruption will happen is quite big But it cannot be predicted when it will happen" Sutopo Purwo Nugroho spokesman for the disaster mitigation agency said The increased frequency of tremors shows the magma continuing to move towards the surface with the mountain entering a "critical phase" the spokesman said The Indonesian Center for Volcanology and Geological Hazard Mitigation said there has been an increase in volcanic tremors with a total of 564 recorded Monday Evacuees have packed into temporary shelters or moved in with relatives Some 2000 cows have also been evacuated from the flanks of the volcano Balinese residents international NGOs and the government have begun organising aid Vehicles filled with noodles mineral water and blankets have been sent to the evacuation centres while residents around the island have been collecting donations for those affected Bali’s "sister village" programme and tradition of communal assistance means evacuees have been able to stay in villages outside the danger zone Around 62000 people lived in the danger zone prior to the evacuations according to the disaster mitigation agency I Ketut Subandi head of logistics at the village of Tana Ampo said basic food items like rice instant noodles cooking oil and water were most needed "This morning we were worried because we had limited rice supply but now we have received more rice stocks from donors" Subandi said Indonesia’s national disaster agency has dispatched 640000 face masks 12500 mattresses 8400 blankets 50 tents and has a budget of $75000 for assistance The central government has set aside a relief fund of nearly $150 million in case of an eruption Officials announced the highest possible alert level on Friday due to the increasing volcanic activity and told people to stay at least nine kilometres away from the crater "Our preparedness will be the key for the mitigations of volcanic risks" Devy Kamil a senior

Madrid adding “you have to have character to do what he did” Sporting went back ahead through a header by Mikel Vesga who had already set up Cop’s opener But Alvaro Morata headed Madrid level again in
