India can dominate world cricket for a long time, says Shane Warne

first_imgLegendary spinner Shane Warne has said India will be able to dominate world cricket, saying he is mighty impressed with the rise of the Asian giants as a global cricketing powerhouse in the recent past.Heaping praise on Virat Kohli’s Team India, Shane Warne also suggested India’s recent dominance is due to some of the top players prioritising Test cricket.”I think India can now have a dominant time in world cricket if they can keep their players on the park, the players stay hungry and value the opportunity and be grateful to play Test cricket,” Shane Warne said while speaking a Rajasthan Royals’ event in Mumbai.”Yes they can make money from IPL (Indian Premier League) and make a fortune. But if they can keep the hunger up to compete in the highest form of the game, that is tests, they can dominate world cricket for a long time.”India now think they can beat anyone: WarneWarne, who was busy with commentary duties during India’s tour of Australia, also said India were outstanding during their first-ever Test series win in Australia. The pace trio of Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami were in fine form as India clinched a four-match series 2-1.”India in Australia this year was one of the best sides I have seen in a long long time to play the game. Australia are a good side even though they are not a great side now. In Australian conditions, they are tough to beat. The way India played; their bowlers, I know Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami bowled great but Bumrah was outstanding,” Warne said.advertisementWarne predicts India’s historic Test series win in Australia could prove to be a defining moment.”Yes they lost to England, to South Africa but after beating Australia, I think the penny has dropped. They now think they can beat anyone, anywhere in the world. That’s half the battle,” he observed.Crediting the Indian team management for calling the shots in team selections, Warne commented they deserve all the credit for setting the ball rolling.”When you think to what’s happened to India over the years, I have been coming to India for 25 years and the way now Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli pick the team and the selectors report to them. So when you look about the structure, Ravi Shastri and Virat then deliver the message to the player. And they take it on board and are honest with it,” he said.I am huge fan of Virat Kohli: WarneAll praise for India’s captain, Warne sees little wrong in Virat’s in your face personality and aggression.”I am great friends with and huge fan of Virat Kohli. I love his emotions, which sometimes work to his detriment. But is that the worst thing you can do? I love his passion for the game,” he remarked.”India have figured out what they need, fielders, fast bowlers, the aggression they play with, their scoring rate; all these things that Australia used to do, India does it well now. It’s been a pleasure to see this Indian side evolve,” he said.Also Read | India vs Australia series at home a chance to give youngsters a go: Harbhajan SinghAlso Read | Matthew Hayden reacts to Sehwag’s babysitting ad: Never take the Aussies for a jokeAlso Read | Virat Kohli head and shoulders above the rest in world cricket today: Kumar SangakkaraAlso See:last_img read more

Shareholders Give Nod to HHIs SplitUp

first_imgzoom Shareholders of the South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) approved on Monday the firm’s plan to reorganize its businesses into separate companies with the aim of improving its financial status. Following the shareholders’ approval, HHI will be split into four sectors – shipbuilding, electronics, construction equipment and robotics. The new companies are expected to be formed in April 2017, the company confirmed in a listing on Korea Exchange.As a result HHI has announced trading suspension of its stock, scheduled for March 30-May 9, 2017.Announced in November 2016, the plan is part of the HHI’s self-rescue scheme to reduce indebtedness. The company said in November it will split into six units – Hyundai Robotics, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Hyundai Electric & Energy Systems,  Hyundai Construction Machinery, Green Energy, and Global Services. The service department and green energy were already set up in December last year.The decision to restructure HHI’s businesses comes despite a series of protests from unions. HHI employees have organized strikes as the restructuring could bring job insecurity for relocated workers as well as for some 13,000 unionized employees to be left behind.In 2016, the shipbuilder implemented a number of revamping measures to bolster its competitiveness including a management improvement plan.These measures helped HHI return back to profit as the shipbuilder reported a net profit of KRW 682.3 billion (USD 596.6 million) for the full year of 2016, compared to a loss of KRW 1.36 trillion (USD 1.18 billion) seen in 2015.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

3 BC First Nations acquire some of the most valuable real estate

first_imgCara McKenna APTN National NewsThree First Nations in the Vancouver area have bought back a large tract of their land in one of the city’s most affluent neighbourhoods, in the latest of numerous site purchases by the three communities in their traditional territories.The Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh purchased 15 hectares of land in Point Grey earlier this month from the province for $480 million, with no help from investors.The sale was negotiated with the three First Nations because of their rights and title to the area.The so-called Jericho Lands lie on a former village site that was used by all three communities, and is believed to have also been used as a pedestrian roadway for their ancestors.It now contains what is considered to be some of the most valuable real estate in Canada.The land purchase adds to an adjacent 21 hectare tract of land that the three First Nations bought from the federal government two years ago.Musqueam Coun. Wendy John said many people are looking at the deal “with dollar signs in their eyes,” but that the deal’s value is much more significant than money.“The value to us is huge. Not monetary, but the feeling of being able to say it’s ours again in a complete ownership package,” John said. “I think the idea of the suffering of those who went before us, and the commitment that they made to bring us to where we are, is something that can never be measured in dollars, for sure, but it sure can be measured in spirit.”Since the deal has gone through, some residents of the area have expressed concerns about what might happen to their homes.But John said the communities will meet with residents as well as members of the three First Nations before making any decisions.“They should be comfortable in knowing that we’re going to sit with them, we’re going to listen to them,” she said. “We’re going to ensure that we protect the lands and the integrity of this land, which is what our ancestors wanted us to do.”The First Nations are also planning to create a corporation to manage their numerous land purchases around the Lower Mainland. The Jericho Lands is now the largest and most valuable tract of land owned by the three First Nations.Squamish Chief Ian Campbell said a number of ideas are being considered for the area, but he envisions a visionary development that will showcase the area’s history and culture.“This is a welcoming home for us to inspire our young people to get involved in these projects,” he said. “We’re not a vanished race. We’re here. It’s very exciting to look at the next chapter of our collective future as we move forward and engage in business and land development.”[email protected]@cara102last_img read more
