West Indies captain Kieron Pollard said that his team conceded too many extras which cost them their first T20I against India here on Friday. West Indies scored 207/5 but India managed to chase it down with eight balls and six wickets to spare with skipper Virat Kohli remaining unbeaten on 94 off 50 balls. “208 to defend, on any day you’d take that 10 out of 10 times. Where we lost the game was the extras and our bowling. Our execution was poor. If we had executed the plans we had spoken about, it would have been a different scenario despite the good batting wicket,” said Pollard in the post-match presentation ceremony.

NEW DELHI: Chinese-made goods are now going for upgrades after years of flooding the Indian market with cheap below-the-radar products. Data available with the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) shows that over 60% of the recently registered products are "Made in China", highlighting the eagerness of Chinese manufacturers to enhance their processes and meet Indian standards to tap into the rapidly growing market. From mobile phones to printers, power adapters, set top boxes, notebooks, tablets and servers, Chinese manufacturers are increasingly taking advantage of a new scheme — self-declaration conformity — for meeting Indian standards.

Beat my team on @My11Circle & Win Big. Make Your Team Now!” With that one tweet, @SGanguly99 had lit a flame on his timeline. How could the BCCI chief endorse a brand that rivals the Board’s official partner, Dream11? Conflict of interest screamed many, while some defended a man’s right to choose his endorsements. Ganguly was nonchalant. His support for the league was a personal matter and had nothing to do with his role as administrator-in-chief heading the … [Read more...] about What makes Sourav Ganguly the brand that he is
