Express App More Related NewsMumbai: Vanquished England skipper Alastair Cook blamed missed chances and lack of spin bowling options for losing the fourth Test by an innings and 36 runs and with that the five-match series in Mumbai on Monday "It was a game of missed opportunities again 400 on that wicket was a good score 230 for two we had an opportunity to go a bit bigger than that but I thought 400 in those conditions was good and just above par Then (with India) at 300/6 and 360/7 we had opportunities" said Cook in his post-match media conference after the home team had wrapped up the victory in 32 minutes of play on Day 5 Alastair Cook also conceded he had misread the Wankhede pitch slightly AP "We missed three good chances to take wickets and they made us pay That is credit to India Most teams who score runs give chances at some stage and it is about a side being good enough to take them Missing (Virat) Kohli missing (Murali) Vijay and (Jayant) Yadav cost us dearly" he said While Vijay (136) and Jayant (104) went on to score centuries the home team captain Kohli slammed a double ton (235) as India posted 631 taking a massive 231-run lead which England couldn’t erase folding for 195 on Monday Cook rued the fact that his spin bowlers were not in the same league as those who helped England come back from 0-1 down and win the series in 2012 in similar conditions "No disrespect to Mo (Moeen Ali) and Rash (Adil Rashid) but Graeme Swann and Monty Panesar were world class bowlers in 2012 In these conditions you need that" he said "Mo and Rash have bowled well but they are not yet in that league of Swann and Panesar That is why we need a slightly different balance to the side In 2012 we could play four bowlers two seamers and two spinners but in this side we need more options" Cook said England needed to play a perfect game to tame India in these conditions "It is just frustrating To beat India in these conditions you have to play the perfect game and we haven’t managed to do that If you have to take 14 wickets against these batters in these conditions it puts you behind a bit" the England skipper said "Clearly India are a very confident side in these conditions and that happens from winning a lot of games previously in these conditions They had opportunities to take the game and they did it" he added Cook also heaped praise on premier Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin who secured a match haul of 12 for 167 in the match "It is very difficult (to play him in these conditions) He has bowled well and improved massively as a bowler over the last couple of years He does not miss length too much" the England skipper said "As a spinner if you don’t miss length you are always putting the batsman under pressure He does not bowl many bad balls and you can see now his confidence is sky high and he is bowling more variations because he has that control "Credit to him he is certainly a lot better bowler than he was a couple of years ago That is down to hard work and that is what happens in the game If you work hard enough and you are good enough you get your rewards" Cook conceded he had misread the Wankhede pitch slightly as he felt it will not spin from day one "Generally here in Mumbai it spins slightly later on in the game but it spun pretty much from ball one and last time in 2012 it didn’t and the pitch looked exactly the same We went for that option (for seam bowlers) to try and give us more control and our best two spinners on this tour have been Mo and Rash" The official Davis Cup dinner before India’s world group

I don’t talk at all We just acknowledge each other say ‘hello’ and walk past” See pics of Karan Johar’s book An Unsuitable Boy which is doing the rounds of social media: “The problem was actually never between her and me It was between her husband and me something which only she knows about he knows about and I know about it I want to keep it at that I don’t really want to say what transpired But I did feel that she needed to apologize for something she didn’t do I felt that if she’s not going to acknowledge twenty-five years of friendship if she wants to support her husband then that’s her prerogative At some outer level I understood it But I just couldn’t see myself in her life any more It’s been months we haven’t spoken to each other” it goes on to say Also read |Karan Johar opens up about his sexuality virginity and SRK in his newbook Karan also seems to have talked about the whole ADHM and Shivaay clash and other related issues — Kamal R Khan had claimed he was paid by Dharma productions to promote ADHM at Shivaay’s cost He later retracted Karan says in the book “Prior to the release of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil there’s a lot that happened Things were said crazy accusations were made against me that I had bribed someone to sabotage her husband’s film I can’t even say that I was hurt or pained by it I just wanted to blank it out When she reacted to the whole situation and put out a tweet saying ‘Shocked’ that’s when I knew it was completely over for me That tweet validated the insanity that she could believe I would bribe someone I felt that’s it It’s over And she can never come back to my life I don’t think she wants to either I never want to have anything to do with them as a unit She was the one who mattered to me but now it’s over I told my mother that she could have a one-on-one relationship with Kajol if she wanted That’s my mother’s preference and if Kajol chooses to but she’s out of my life” It also reveals how hurt Karan felt after news of the entire bribing episode broke “I wouldn’t like to give a piece of myself to her at all because she’s killed every bit of emotion I had for her for twenty-five years I don’t think she deserves me I feel nothing for her any more I’ve been told by my friends that it’s still my hurt talking but I’m so indifferent to the situation now what with everything that’s transpired There was still a bit of me that wished we would get back to what we had but that one-word tweet that she put out – that was the most humiliating thing she could have done for a person who loved her deeply That broke me Once it broke me it angered me and then I went into indifference Now no matter what happens I’m never going to be there for her Maybe it doesn’t matter to her at all I don’t even want to speak about her husband because that’s inconsequential to my life now He doesn’t matter to me he never did I still don’t want to say anything about her husband because I want to respect the history she and I shared” it reads But Karan also seems to be very careful with the manner he explained his sentiments especially since both he and Kajol share a common group of friends “But yes it hurts me that she’s still close to people I’m really close to like Manish and Niranjan Somehow I wish she wasn’t When they talk about her it angers me I know it’s not fair for me to impose my feeling on them but it bothers me I can’t be dishonest and say it doesn’t I can’t help it I’m human But I don’t want to be that person who asks his friends to take sides I’m not territorial normally but about this I feel very strongly” Karan Johar is evidently hurt But after all this we also need to see what Kajol or Ajay have to say Ajay posted on Twitter “Request:- pls stop printing old interviews Answers are dependent on time remember ” Request:- pls stop printing old interviews Answers are dependent on time remember — Ajay Devgn (@ajaydevgn) January 13 2017 Meanwhile a source close to Ajay told HT “Karan is doing this just to sell his book The whole industry knows that Karan b*tches people behind their back Even Shah Rukh Khan was upset with Karan because of his comments against Priyanka Chopra Two years ago at a party Karan indulged in really loose talk about Kajol in front of an A-list actor That actor in turn told Ajay Devgn about it Ajay even asked that actor why despite being Karan’s friend is he telling him about it The actor said that if Karan could badmouth Kajol in front of him he could also gossip about him someday Ajay was obviously furious – any man would be if his wife was talked about in such light So he called Karan and abused him on the phone He told Karan that ‘you can say what you wish about my film but don’t talk about my wife and family’” The source further added “This issue is two years old Much before the clash between Karan’s film (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil) and Ajay’s film (Shivaay) happened The fact that it is being discussed now and so is Karan’s sexual orientation is clearly to remain in news to sell his book He can do whatever he wishes but he can’t make a villain out of Ajay Devgn in that process This is just playing dirty” This Karan-Ajay rant seems endless For

ultimately it was Pakistan who won the final by 33 runs and lifted the Independence Cup While there were some concerns surrounding the form of the Pakistan batsman and the fielding especially after the loss in the second match it was put to rest by a good all-round show by the hosts Earlier after winning the toss World XI opted to bowl Pakistan got off to a good start as Ahmed Shehzad and Fakhar

Sachin TendulkarWest Bengal Assembly Election 2016 Trinamool Congress candidate from Siliguri Baichung Bhutia PTI One of India’s greatest certainly the best-known Baichung was the global face for Indian football in his playing days lifting the game’s profile and helping football connect with the younger generation through his skill and marketing savvy The Sikkimese Sniper has 42 international goals to his credit the highest among any Indian player But on Sunday as phase 2 of Bengal Assembly Polls gets under way Trinamool Congress candidate Baichung will be up against an opponent in Siliguri so formidable that even his silken soccer skills may not be enough to score past veteran CPM leader Asok Bhattacharya Baichung who played as a striker has jinked past many a defender in his career but his surefootedness on football turf is sure to be tested to the hilt in the quicksand of politics More so against Bhattacharya an old warhorse in electoral game who has emerged as the Left Front’s new poster boy by successfully thwarting the rampaging TMC in Siliguri his lair even as ‘green’ rapidly wiped out ‘red’ almost everywhere else in the badlands of Bengal The North Bengal satrap has a two-decade old experience of being a minister during uninterrupted Left Front rule His impregnability earned him the moniker of ‘North Bengal CM’ Bhattacharya is also a four-time MLA and the current mayor of Siliguri Municipal Corporation The 66-year-old’s rare defeat in a long political career came when TMC’s sitting MLA Rudranath Bhattacharya pipped him in 2011 by a mere 5000 votes riding high on the poriborton (change) wave Since then however Bhattacharya has turned the tables on the ruling party By swimming against the tide the veteran CPM leader defeated the TMC twice in two major elections in Siliguri last year — the civic body and Siliguri Mahakauma Parishad (SMP) polls Asok Bhattacharya and The Siliguri Model At a time when TMC went from strength to strength vastly increased its organization capabilities and accumulated wins at every electoral level Bhattacharya stopped Mamata Banerjee’s juggernaut by fathering an electoral strategy that may yet end up triggering a tectonic shift in Bengal politics The loss in 2011 forced the former state urban development minister to do two things One create a rift between the ruling party and Congress who were alliance partners in 2011 Two prevent a split in anti-TMC votes A veteran in the game Bhattacharya realised that an entente with the Congress is the only chance for Left Front nee CPM to survive It isn’t easy for a puritanical party to shed its decade old baggage But Bhattacharya worked on a simple logic: "What will happen to CPM’s ideology and tactical line if it ceases to exist "We did not go for any seat sharing in Siliguri We had called on all the democratic and secular forces to unite to defeat the TMC and resist its vote loot Our slogan was Trinamool Hathao Siliguri Bachao (Remove TMC Save Siliguri) We had called upon all political parties to ensure that voters cast their votes without fear and people responded spontaneously" said Bhattacharya Simply put Siliguri Model became the very basis of the unprecedented CPM-Congress pre-poll alliance for the Assembly elections in the state replicated after much hemming and hawing in Alimuddin Street Mamata’s move masterstroke or a blunder In contrast Baichung’s electoral dabbles have mostly been amateurish The three-time India Footballer of the Year has tasted defeat once already going down by a massive 197239 votes in Darjeeling against BJP’s SS Ahluwalia during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls The Arjuna and Padma Shri awardee has undoubted celebrity appeal Girls mostly teenagers swoon and youngsters jostle for selfies as Baichung goes on door-to-door campaigning in the lanes and bylanes of Siliguri That however is rarely a guarantee for votes Mamata’s decision to field a light flyweight boxer against a heavyweight campaigner has taken almost everyone in the local party circle by surprise including it would seem the candidate himself "When I decided to join the TMC I have to listen to the head of the party It’s the leader that decides who should contest and from where In football too the coach decides where I play when I play and whether I am fit enough to play I may or may not be happy about the decision but I have to listen to the leader Didi wanted me to fight from Siliguri But it’s not like I was dying to contest from here" Baichung was quoted as saying in Catchnews One of the richest TMC candidates with declared assets worth over Rs 17 crore Baichung’s biggest problem is his lack of ground connect and as the opposition put it his "five-star lifestyle" The former India captain is well aware of opposition barbs and is working hard trying to mingle with the masses Be it the red-light area of Khalpara or dingy streets in the narrow wards India’s most-capped player is traversing every inch of his constituency sometimes taking an unscheduled break from his campaign routine by suddenly barging amid a group of boys and kicking the ball around But there are other issues Baichung is Mamata’s pick TMC leadership’s move to drop sitting MLA Rudranath Bhattacharya—whose name got entangled in a scam—from the list of candidates and field the star footballer hasn’t gone down well with local workers and disgruntlement is only a coat of varnish away Sometimes not even that "The decision (to field Baichung) would surely dampen the spirit of leaders and workers who are with the party throughout the year He is an occasional visitor and not a regular party worker Rivals will seize on this aspect His presence in Siliguri vis-à-vis that of Bhattacharya is minimal and it would make our task tough" a local TMC leader was quoted as saying in The Telegraph Baichung who claims to have been interested in politics even during his playing days had campaigned for Bhattacharya in the past During the 2006 Assembly elections he had shared the dais with the veteran CPM leader Fingers have also been raised about how in February 2008 the state allotted a 13 bigha commercial plot in the Siliguri Regulated Market premises to Baichung’s firm Free Kick Ventures Pvt Ltd for starting a highway-styled petrol pump It will be difficult for Baichung to launch scathing attacks against Bhattacharya feel local TMC leaders Not just because he hobnobbed with him in the past also because he may not simple be aware of local issues The Gorkhaland muddle The division of the state is a tricky touchy issue and one that refuses to go away While nominating Baichung for the Siliguri Assembly seat Mamata Banerjee said: "None dared contest from Darjeeling during the Lok Sabha polls but Baichung agreed He belongs to West Bengal and does not want division of this state He loves Bengal and will serve the masses of the Darjeeling Hills" But Baichung’s position on this issue is far from being unambiguous He holds that people will be very happy if Gorkhaland is formed adding in the same breath that development is more important He finds it easier instead to blame the BJP for "cheating the people by promising them Gorkhaland in 2014 and going back on the promise" It is an uneasy position to hold one that mirrors the predicament Baichung finds himself in something that Kejriwal was
