while Liverpool fans may have been frustrated at such a start, He said, but women are just stunning. and we have also not been that consistent with taking the right DRS calls; I think we need to get better with that.But one thing being that we take our decisions on the field ourselves We don’t ask for confirmation upstairs so I think that’s one thing that’s pretty consistent with us On the Bengaluru win being more fulfilling in his captaincy so far: For sure Till now this is the best one definitely I don’t want to say too much because the game panned out the way it did and there’s not much left to say It was quite an emotional game for us quite draining as well Everyone got along together we showed the team spirit and a lot of people were talking about the head of the snake but I think the snake did pretty well by itself So it’s not just about one individual I’m pretty happy if they keep focusing on the head of the snake and the snake can sting from a lot of directions I think some people need to keep that in mind but I thought [this was] the sweetest victory for us On the Indian bowlers setting the game up on the second day: For sure I said that in the post-match [presentation] as well I think the first session on day two – we gave away only 45-odd runs and picked up two wickets when they could have taken the game away from us —they were 40 without loss [overnight] I think that was probably the momentum change that we needed and throughout the day we didn’t give more than 200 runs we picked up six wickets I think that for us was quite important and something that you look for as a team Someone has to step up and do the job for you I think (Ravindra) Jadeja was outstanding in the first innings along with our fast bowlers Their spell again was very very good relentless pressure from one end by Umesh (YAdav) and Ishant (Sharma) and then Jadeja picking up those wickets later on Those are the kind of things you need as a team to change the tide that’s going against you One thing is that we never stopped trying We didn’t give in we didn’t let the opposition totally roll over us we knew if they didn’t get a big first-innings total Day 3– end of Day 2and Day 3– is the best time to bat here and Day 4is going to be very difficult We saw the first-class stats and no team chased 120 also in the fourth innings so we knew once we get 150-plus we have a fair chance to go at them and eventually we surprised ourselves by winning by 75 Honestly I thought it was going to be closer than that On Steven Smith’s “brain fade”: I saw that happening two times when I was batting out there I pointed it out to the umpire as well that it’s happened twice that I’ve seen their players looking upstairs for confirmation and that’s why the umpire was at him When he turned back the umpire knew exactly what was going on because we observed that we told match referee also and the umpires that they’ve been doing that for the last three days and this has to stop Because there’s a line that you don’t cross on the cricket field because sledging and playing against the opponents is different But… I don’t want to mention the word but it falls in that bracket I would never do something like that on the cricket field (Follow up to the previous question) Is that word “cheating” I didn’t say that You did On the team dealing with pressure after the Pune humiliation: We had spoken even before this Test match about if they are saying that they need to get me out and the team will fall apart I told everyone else it’s an opportunity for you Let the pressure come I have no problem it doesn’t make a difference to me whether I perform or not I just look to learn from failures If you perform well and the team wins then obviously you’re pleased but you just want your team to win We addressed it and said let their focus be on this and if they don’t focus on the others they’ll let the momentum slip and that’s exactly what happened They basically played into our hands But at the same time you need two-three people to step up and take responsibility and I feel that the partnership between Ajinkya (Rahane) and (Cheteshwar) Pujara in a situation where the momentum was against us in the series was outstanding In the last two years it’s one of the top two partnerships or maybe number one because retrieving the lost momentum and giving the team the lead was a question of character and they both showed why they are India’s best Test batsmen On Healy’s criticismof his on-field tactics: [I’ll lose respect] in his eyes We’ve got 12 billion people in India One person doesn’t make a difference to my life And also I think you should go and search on YouTube when he was given out in Centurion down the leg side I heard he said something about me not having good behaviour with umpires —I think you all should YouTube that video and I think yeah that says it all Just see that video and next time you ask me the same question Whether the two instances mentioned were brain fades or that he avoided the word ‘cheating’: Honestly if someone makes a mistake while batting for me personally that’s a brain fade The way I left the ball in Pune you know getting hit on the off-stump That was a brain fade But if something is going on for three days then that’s not a brain fade as simple as that I don’t want to say more on that videos are out there for everyone to see It was getting repetitive that’s why the umpires also knew that it might happen again I saw it two times when I was batting I can vouch for that On his dismissal (a contentious one) in second innings: I felt my bat had touched the ball before the pad It stays with the on-field call if the umpires don’t think there is enough to overturn the decision That is also a thin line that can go against you or work for you Everyone makes mistakes batsmen get out after making mistakes There are doubtful moments in batting too when you don’t understand what to do So this can happy with anyone so I wouldn’t like to put it against me But it’s one incident that you might feel it’s not out but your partnermight feel it’s out There were both opinions onit to whoever I spoke with Some thought there was pad some thought there was bat So the on-field call that stayed was by the rules eventually I didn’t take it against anybody Like I said their focus was on us So that’s good let it be like that Whether the Indians were a bowler short going with four for this match: I don’t think so because we knew the Bangalore wicket since it has been relaid there have been only one or two bowlers doing the job One or two bowlers have been getting a lot of wickets If you see this Test match as well Lyon got eightin the first innings then Jadeja got six then Hazlewood sixand Ashwin six So I think one bowler has stood out even in the first-class season we saw that You know from that feedback we knew that we had to play an extra batter just to strengthen up a batting a bit because we were shaken up in Pune a little bit And you need guys to have that bit of cushion So when you put runs on the board in either of the innings then obviously it helps the bowlers to come and put pressure on the batsmen I think it was more to do with how the games have panned out here and that’s why we decided to go with that combination Talking generally about the whole season: We can’t do much about the Ranchi pitch you know how it’s always been It’s always been slow and low they know exactly what to expect there and we know what to expect as well It’s how you mentally prepare mentally what kind of zone you’re in as a team I think this was the kind of game we needed to sort of forget that hiccup in Pune and move forward again as a pack Yeah the spinners have been outstanding and they will definitely look to back their strengths and dominate the home season as they’ve done so far On KL Rahul’s growth as a batsman especially in the last three Tests: I think the last three innings have been his best three innings so far And I told him this you’ll cherish the ones that you don’t get hundreds in but they’re so valuable for the team and you’ll understand their importance later And that happens to every batsman I think he’s in a very good zone He wants to convert his own starts into big hundreds which he’s done in the past but because it has been a bit difficult in the past with momentum not going around our way I think he’s stuck in really well He’s shown a lot of character and I’m sure in the coming games he’d like to push that score forward and put the team into a more consolidating position Hats off to the way he’s played Young guy big series team up against the wall and he’s shows character you know three times out of four innings so outstanding Ups and downs of the series so far: The people involved in the game know exactly how it went If you dissect the game you understand where we lost momentum where we played well where we didn’t So we keep it simple: we will improve on things we didn’t do well and continue doing things we did We don’t take too much load You want a wicket to fall sitting outside you think why it isn’t falling But a bowler knows that it’s coming So that’s a difference in mindset between people outside and us If we think the same we’ll become frustrated But yes it’s been challenging the last seven-eight days But I said only one thing and that is that we will win together and lose together Not like we will start running here and there two people saying we need rest Nothing like that we will stay together We took twodays off in Pune and even when we came here I said the result doesn’t matter We will just enjoy and appreciate the moment That if we have won together we will also lose together We will stick together as a team With inputs from IANS Lennart Johansson former president of European football’s governing body UEFA says the decision to award the World Cup to Russia and Qatar must now be reviewed in the light of the latest corruption allegations Johansson who lost the 1998 FIFA presidential election to Sepp Blatter would like to see the 2018 finals played in England

that the world’s biggest sporting movement has such a leader at the top I really do" Johansson who led UEFA for 17 years before retiring in 2007 says that the decision to award the World Cup to Russia in 2018 and Qatar in 2022 should and will be changed "I expect they will reconsider the decisions Blatter himself has said that the decision to go east wasn’t proper I am sure the initiative will now be taken to make a new decision" Given the choice Johansson would like to see the 2018 finals played in England "They (England) haven’t had it since 1966 and it’s considered ‘the motherland of football’ whatever we might think They are worthy of the attention" Johansson said England backed by the British government made a bid to host the 2018 finals The bidding process proved controversial

international charters against non-interference in internal affairs of other countries according to a top Pakistani official File photo of PM Modi PTI The remark was made by Foreign Secretary Aizaz Chaudhry in an interview with Dawn News Responding to Modi’s address in Kerala on Saturday where he denounced Pakistan for supporting and exporting terror besides warning that the neighbouring country will be isolated as a "terror state" Chaudhry said that several UN resolutions recognised Islamabad as a party to the Kashmir dispute and India too recognised that status But India has no justification for interfering in Pakistan’s internal affairs he added The Foreign Secretary said it was unfortunate that the Indian leadership "continues to indulge in a vilification campaign against Pakistan by making provocative statements and hurling baseless accusations" He said that such display of irresponsible behaviour at the highest political level was regrettable "It is evident that as an act of desperation India is trying to distract world attention from the atrocities perpetrated by its occupation forces against innocent and defenceless Kashmiris including women and children" Chaudhry said The Foreign Secretary said that while casting aspersions on Pakistan India continued to "sponsor terrorism in Pakistan directly through its state apparatus" The arrest and confessional statement of Kulbhushan Yadav — the Indian national arrested in Pakistan on charges of being a RAW agent — had proved India’s involvement he added He pointed out that the international community had taken notice of blatant human rights violations with concern expressed by several countries as well as the UN and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation "There are increasing demands for independent investigations and fact-finding missions to be sent to Kashmir" Chaudhry added Ambassador Jilani said that by making such statements Indian leaders were trying to hide the atrocities their forces were committing against the people of Kashmir "We reject the statement This is highly irresponsible The content of the statement is a distortion and counter-intuitive" he said Meanwhile Jalil Abbas Jilani Pakistan’s Ambassador to Washington believed that Modi’s statement shows India’s nervousness with the situation in held Kashmir Jilani said that to hide their guilt and nervousness Indian leaders had forgotten the language of diplomacy Dawn News reported on Monday "With such statements they cannot draw a curtain on their brazen acts of terrorism and crimes against humanity in Kashmir" he said The situation in Kashmir demanded a responsible and realistic response but "unfortunately India is acting in a highly irresponsible manner" Jilani said "India is making a wrong example and it will hurt everybody" he said adding "If India continues on this path it will end up isolating itself instead of Pakistan"president’s office said in a statement.
