ICC to take stern action against guilty players: Pawar

first_imgThe ICC today made it clear that it would not tolerate corruption in cricket and warned of stern action against players found guilty in the spot-fixing scandal which has rocked world cricket.ICC President Sharad Pawar also said that Scotland Yard’s investigations into the spot-fixing charges against Pakistani cricketers will not take long and there was “nothing to hide” on this issue.”Till Scotland Yard probe is not over how can we comment on that? But if anything established we will take strong stand. Without information we should not jump into any conclusion,” Pawar told reporters after meeting with PCB Chairman Ijaz Butt at his residence.”Prima facie there are some allegations and we have suspended the players on the basis of that. Scotland Yard has permitted them to go back to Pakistan and PCB has also promised to make them available to the investigators if required. Nobody is playing hide and seek A major investigation agency is carrying out the probe and that will not take long. PCB or ICC will not interfere in the process,” he added.Pawar rubbished any conspiracy theory involving India. “India has no role in the entire drama,” he said.Butt also said that he did not believe in any conspiracy theory. “I don’t believe in any conspiracy theory. I am a businessman and a cricket administrator.”Pawar said that all the countries are supporting the ICC in preserving the sanctity of the game.”PCB is not a separate entity, it is also a part of the ICC. ICC takes collective decision and we will not tolerate any nonsense or corruption. All the boards are supporting us in preserving the sanctity of the game,” Pawar said.advertisementButt claimed that the PCB was not offended with the ICC’s move to provisionally suspend the three cricketers – captain Salman Butt and pacer duo of Muhammad Aamir and Muhammad Asif.”We are not offended for the decision. ICC asked them to individually answer and all of them have done so. If anyone is found guilty, we will not show any tolerance. ICC Code of Conduct is very clear regarding this matter,” he said.”We have talked about the three players, the Scotland Yard is investigating the matter. Till investigation is complete, neither we are commenting nor the ICC is commenting,” Butt added.last_img read more

Delhi Univesity VC Dinesh Singh unveils welfare plan at a packed open house

first_imgVice-Chancellors facing screaming students is a usual sight. What made Delhi University V-C Dinesh Singh different was the tenor of the students’ reaction. They were cheering and clapping for their ‘rockstar’ V-C who promised them the best of facilities on campus during his tenure.It was a students’ day out at DU’s Rugby Stadium on Saturday. The V-C doled out a number of plans to make the university more student-friendly and an ‘exciting place to be’.An acclaimed mathematician and acknowledged speaker, Singh managed to draw a staggering 3,000 students on a lazy Saturday morning. It’s the kind of crowd only rock shows and DJs can pull on north campus. But Singh is nothing less than a rockstar for the students.His deep voice, flawless speech, knowledge and a humble demeanour make him a crowd-puller. The way he recites Sanskrit shlokas or narrates a story about the freedom struggle gives away his knack for gaining knowledge.A product of Delhi University himself, Singh shares a special bond with the students. On Saturday, he spoke in immaculate Hindi, ensuring the students that he was one of them and was thinking for them. His statements were complimented with loud cheers and thunderous applause.Close to completing two years in office, Singh is fast becoming the most popular face not just on north campus but in far-flung colleges too.He was literally mobbed by the students at the stadium as each one of them sought his attention.”Aaj kisi ne toh hamare bare mein socha (at least someone thought about us),” said second year student Nisha Ghai to her friend.advertisement”He is so tall and speaks so well,” her friend replied.A day after gifting cricketer Unmukt Chand another chance to study BA Programme at St Stephen’s College, Singh assured the students that he had something for everyone in his kitty.”We are planning to distribute free tablets with preloaded books to students with special needs. Such students will also be allowed to travel free on the Delhi Metro.Through the Equal Opportunity Cell of the university we have made sure that the reservation for the differently abled in hostels is increased and they can stay there for free,” Singh said.The top demand of the students was a hostel for each college.Singh, who was the director of south campus before taking over as the vice-chancellor in November 2010, announced that a new hostel was coming up for the south campus students too. A 1,500-seat hostel near north campus has already been completed.For sportspersons, he announced free travel in air-conditioned train coaches and a tie-up with New Zealand University for sports coaching. “We are already sending our women’s soccer team there for coaching for one month,” Singh said.Examination is one area where DU has only managed a toe-hold.But Singh promised that from the next examination, all students will get their results within three weeks of their last paper.When a student from Maharaja Agrasen College asked him why teachers could not check papers correctly in one go, Singh said, “From next time, you will not require any re-evaluation. We will get each script checked by three examiners.”The session with the V-C was not all about academics. He invited the students to the stadium again for the forthcoming three-day festival- ‘Antardhwani’. “All colleges will participate.We will invite bands. There will be music and poetry. And no college will hold classes during those three days,” he announced. Singh shared his plan to offer internship to 100 students every year at the Cluster Innovation Centre. “I have a grandfather clause to make that happen,” he said.The V-C managed to strike a chord with the students. “It’s not every day that you get a chance to come face-to-face with the vice-chancellor. The good part is, he chose to address us in Hindi making many students open up without any fear,” said Sanya, a second year student of BA (honours) History.Singh was pleased with the students’ response. “I have been talking to students a lot these days. They become very happy if you lend an ear to them.Today they all wanted to speak to me on different issues and I made sure to hear most of them out. One direct benefit of such an experience is that my team of deans and deputy deans is getting to explore different aspects of a students’ life.We were all exhausted after the session but we went straight to our office and worked the rest of the day,” said Singh.advertisement”I will now meet the parents on Sunday. I want to make them realise they are all stakeholders. I will do my best but they all have to contribute too,” Singh added.The V-C is going to announce the formation of a ‘DU Parental Platform’ on Sunday, which is likely to operate online as well as on ground. “We want a platform where parents can send in their complaints and suggestions,” Singh said.last_img read more

17 days agoScotland coach Clarke raps fans barracking Liverpool fullback Robertson

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Scotland coach Clarke raps fans barracking Liverpool fullback Robertsonby Paul Vegas17 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveScotland coach Steve Clarke has hit back at the Tartan Army barracking Liverpool fullback Andrew Robertson.For the defeats against Russia and Belgium, Robertson received the brunt of the criticism levelled at the squad.”Listen, when you don’t win matches you are going to be crucified,” Clarke told The Scotsman.”Andy is experienced enough to realise that. He is the captain and the one who gets it. But it is unfair. It’s unfair to single out Andy Robertson and say that he should take the criticism.”Everyone should take the criticism. It’s a collective thing. I have spoken to Andy since, we had a good chat and he is fine.”Robertson is not the first Scottish Liverpool player to be questioned for his performances at international level. Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen were both subjected to the same treatment.”There is always going to be certain criticism – Alan Hansen wasn’t good enough to play for Scotland either,” Clarke bemoaned.”The best way to avoid the criticism is to get points, to win matches and draw matches you are expected to lose. That just makes everyone feel a little bit better.”It’s the same in club football. Winning covers a multitude of sins. If you start to win matches everyone will be on board and more positive about it. They will stop talking about the players who are not selected and instead speak about the ones who are.” last_img read more
