Ind vs WI: Indian seamers restrict West Indies to 64/3 at lunch on Day 1

first_imgIn-form pacer Ishant Sharma struck twice as India reduced West Indies to 64 for three at lunch on the opening day of the third and final Test here Wednesday.After Mahendra Singh Dhoni decided to bowl with the hope that his seamers would get the team some quick wickets, Ishant and Praveen Kumar lived up to the skipper’s expectations by removing Adrian Barath and debutantes Kieran Powell and Kirk Edwards.Darren Bravo and the experienced Shivnarine Chanderpaul were batting on 17 and 11, respectively, when lunch was called at the Windsor Park here.Ishant showed no after-effects of a facial injury he suffered yesterday, returning figures of two for 23.While Kumar gave the team its first breakthrough by having Powell caught at second slip by VVS Laxman, Ishant, bowling the bouncers to good effect, sent back Barath and Edwards.Ishant, who rattled the hosts with a 10-wicket haul in the drawn second Test at Kensington Oval, looked in good nick here as well.Munaf Patel, playing his first Test of the three-match series at the expense of Abhimanyu Mithun, bowled economically, though without success.If Praveen and Ishant began with maiden overs, Munaf, who returned to Test cricket after two years, did even better as first change by bowling three maidens on the trot.Earlier Powell, who got his first Test runs — a three off a push into covers against Ishant — didn’t get to score any further as Praveen found the edge of his defensive bat with a peach of a delivery.advertisementBarath, after being flustered with a caught behind appeal down the legside by Ishant, edged a pull on to his stumps off the very next delivery.Ishant picked up his third wicket of the morning when he had Edwards who was unlucky to be judged caught behind by debutant Test umpire Richard Kettleborough of England as the rising delivery hit his helmet, and not bat, on way to Dhoni.West Indies would now look to Bravo and veteran Chanderpaul to bail them out.This is Chanderpaul’s 133rd Test match, the highest by any West Indian cricketer. Courtney Walsh, with 132 Tests under his belt, held the previous record.Bravo looked the best of all home batsmen and scored two fours ? a square cut against Ishant past point and then a backfoot cover drive against Harbhajan Singh.While Munaf is the only change in the India line-up, West Indies made two changes, with Powell and Edwards being preferred over Lendl Simmons and Ramnaresh Sarwan.  – With PTI inputslast_img read more

Some Public Sector Entities to be Merged

first_imgA number of government departments and agencies will be merged this financial year to enable greater cost-efficiency and effectiveness in the public sector. This was disclosed by Finance and Planning Minister, Dr. the Hon. Peter Phillips, during his opening presentation in the 2013/14 Budget Debate in the House of Representatives on April 18. The Minister informed that plans are in place to merge the Betting Gaming and Lotteries Commission with the Jamaica Racing Commission. Also, the University Council of Jamaica will be joined with the Council of Community Colleges of Jamaica to form the Jamaica Tertiary Commission. As part of the public sector transformation, the Fiscal Services Limited will be merged with the Central Information Technology Office (CITO) to create a new technical office to drive E-government. Dr. Phillips also informed that the research facilities are being integrated to form the National Institute of Science and Technology. “All of this represents just one aspect of what is being pursued, and there are other agencies which are currently being reviewed with a view to reducing the cost and size of their operations,” the Finance Minister said. In the meantime, he informed that Cabinet has taken the decision to establish a Strategic Human Resource Management Unit to serve the entire government. The unit will provide policy direction across government and technical guidance to the human resource management departments. “The expectation is that the work of this unit will make way for a public sector, which is cohesive and performance-based,” Dr. Philips stated. Intrinsic to this effort, he noted, is the completion of an Employee Census System (E-Census), which will record the entire listing of public sector employees in order to compile an effective Human Resource Management System. The Finance Minister informed that in a further effort to reduce public sector costs, the government will be placing energy conservation and new Information and Communications Technology (ICT) systems within departments and agencies.
