first_imgKochi beat Kolkata by six runs in an IPL match that went down to the wire at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday. Score | PhotosMore than the batsmen it was a day the bowlers thrived on with 19 wickets falling in the match. But, it was Kochi captain Mahela Jayawardene, who won the Man of the Match award.Earlier in the Kolkata innings, Jacques Kallis attempted to play a big one off R Vinay Kumar in the fourth over, but ended up getting caught in the deep by Kedar Jadhav on 24/1. In came Kochi paceman RP Singh and out went Kolkata skipper Gautam Gambhir with a fine yorker uprooting his middle stump on 3 and Kolkata were 27/2.The other opener, Manvinder Bisla, too did not stay for long and was bowled by Ravindra Jadeja on 16 even as Kolkata were three wickets down for 37.Finally, Manoj Tiwary and Eoin Morgan forged a partnership and just when the two were beginning to settle down, Morgan got run out ruining their plans. Morgan fell for 10 and Kolkata were at 73/4 in 12.2 overs.Another wicket, this time of Shakib Al Hasan and Kochi came back into the game, which at one point looked drifting away from them. This was RP Singh’s second wicket in the match and it too was a clean bowled.  Kolkata were 86/5 at the stage.Then it was time for Ranji Trophy veteran Ramesh Powar to show his skills with the ball. His off-break left Yusuf Pathan guessing even as he ended up giving a catch to Kochi’s Sri Lankan import Muttiah Muralitharan near the mid-wicket boundary for 8. And Kolkata were down to 97/6.advertisementLone ranger Manoj Tiwary, who was battling the odds, too fell as Kochi tightened the noose. He scored a dogged 46 before falling to Jadeja in the 17th over when the team total was 101/7.In the 18th over Brett Lee, an accomplished bowler, but not an accomplished batsman became Muttiah Muralitharan’s first victim when the Kolkata score was 105.In the last over, Kolkata needed nine runs off two balls and Vinay Kumar was the bowler, and their last recognised batsman Rajat Bhatia went for a double but ended up getting a run and Kolkata needed eight runs off the last ball. New man L Balaji scored one run off the last ball as Kochi won the match by six runs.Kochi pacer RP Singh finished with impressive figures of 4-0-25-2.Kochi inningsKolkata bowlers Shakib Al Hasan and Yusuf Pathan took three wickets each to restrict Kochi to 132/7 in this 22nd IPL match at the Eden GardensAfter being put to bat by opposition skipper Gautam Gambhir, who won the toss, Kochi were batting with ease with openers Brendon McCullum and captain Mahela Jayawardene at the crease. The two have been in good nick and were looking set for a big score, but Kolkata’s Bangladeshi import Shakib Al Hasan struck on the last ball of the seven over to break their 49-run stand.A tame shot off McCullum saw him give an easy catch to Eoin Morgan at backward point when he was batting on 23. The partnership broken, Jayawardene too did not last long and was sent back by Yusuf Pathan on 25 who had him leg before wicket. Kochi were 52/2 at the stage. In the 10th over, Yusuf Pathan struck and clean bowled Brad Hodge cheaply to reduce Kochi to 55/3. An inside edge of Hodge’s bat shattered his stumps when he was batting on 2. It wasn’t over for Pathan, who then removed Parthiv Patel leg before in his next over and Kochi were down to 65/4.Shakib came around to do some more damage in the 15th over. He scalped Kedar Jadhav on the lastball of the over and the Kochi scoreboard read 100/5.But Ravindra Jadeja was still at the crease and when he gets going, he makes the bowlers pay, no matter how illustrious they may be. But, that phenomenon didn’t come to pass as Kolkata’s Aussie import Brett Lee thought otherwise. Jadeja went for a big one off him and ended up giving a catch to Yusuf Pathan near the boundary. He fell on 29 and Kochi were 105/6.Kolkata bowlers were keeping a tight line, giving no room to the oppostion batsmen to score. For as soon as a Kochi batsman tried to get loose he would find himself walking back to the dugout. Then next in line was R Vinay Kumar, bowled Shakib on 11 and Kochi were down to 127/7.Kochi managed to add five runs more and finish the innings on 132/7.advertisementlast_img read more

Cybercrime a major global threat – Minister Chuck

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppMontego Bay, Jamaica, November 8, 2016 – Minister of Justice, Hon. Delroy Chuck, says cyber-crime is a major global threat that represents a clear and present danger to democracies and the rule of law everywhere.   He said there is an urgent need for the strengthening of international cooperation and the harmonization of policy and legislative instruments in the criminal justice system to combat the threat.  “Mobile fraud has increased by 173 per cent between 2013 and 2015, and while mobile transactions are growing, fraud is growing at an even faster clip. In 2015, 45 per cent of all transactions originated from the mobile channel, while 61 per cent of fraud attempts were made from a mobile device,” he noted.He said that cyber-crime costs are projected to reach US$2 trillion worldwide by 2019 and the cyber-security products and services market is expected to grow from US$75 billion in 2015 to US$175 billion by 2020.  “We are confronting a boundless and borderless threat and an unprecedented threat to the global economy and global security,” he stressed.Minister Chuck, who was addressing the 4th North American and Caribbean International Association of Prosecutors (IAP) Conference at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James, on November 3, said that in light of the challenges, societies cannot now afford for a fragmentation of cyber-crime laws, divergence of procedural powers, lack of access to extraterritorial data by law enforcement authorities, and ineffective international cooperation mechanisms.He said legal luminaries everywhere must be bold in considering options to strengthen the legal, institutional, investigative and prosecutorial mechanisms to combat cyber-crime.  “We must come together,” he stressed.  “We have to face the realities, the challenges and do what is necessary to ensure the protection of our communities.  We cannot afford for the criminals to beat us. That is something we should not even try to fathom, as the consequences would be too grave to even contemplate,” he argued.For her part, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Paula Llewellyn, acknowledged that combating cyber-crime is challenging but expressed confidence that “together we shall not only persevere, we will also be victorious”.She noted that the conference provides an opportunity to examine a wide range of areas as it relates to the issue.  “Our objective is to ensure that cyber-crime does not continue to undermine good governance, democracy and the safety of our citizens,” Ms. Llewellyn said.The three-day IAP conference was attended by prosecutors and law-enforcement officers from more than 24 countries in the Caribbean, United States, Canada, and Europe.  The discussion focused on a wide range of topics relating to prosecution and ways to make the justice system more effective in addressing cybercrime.last_img read more
