Halllllara to the Group Stages

first_imgPAOK comfortably secured their place in the Europa League Group Stages, defeating Dinamo Tbilisi 2-0 in the second leg. The Dikefalos tou Vora eliminated the Georgian Champions 5-0 on aggregate (0-3 win in the first leg). Rodrigues and Tzavellas scored the goals for the hosts in the first half.After an emphatic 0-3 win in Georgia for the first leg, PAOK had an easy task ahead of them in today’s match to secure their place in the Europa League Group Stage. PAOK put the game to rest as early as the 5th minute, when Rodrigues’ pressure forced a mistake from Dinamo’s backline, and his one-two with Pererya set him up for the opening goal of the game. The goal took any pressure that was on PAOK as the hosts had complete control of the game. At the end of the first half, PAOK was awarded a penalty but Djalmo Campos was unable to give PAOK the 2-0 lead from the spot. However, from the resulting corner Tzavellas doubled PAOK’s lead with a close-ranged header late in the first half.The second half was played out with minimal chances as the best opportunity fell to Pererya, who was unable to convert one-on-one with the opposing keeper. Varela came close to a goal in his debut with PAOK, but his effort did not find the target late in the game. The final whistle came with PAOK comfortably securing their place in the Europa League Group Stage.PAOK will play in the Europa League Group stage for yet another season. In tomorrow’s draw, the Dikefalos tou Vora will be in the 2nd seeded pot.Source: AGONAsport.com (Facebook – Instagram)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

There’s No Stopping Giannis Antetokounmpo from Being Hoop God

first_imgBrother Kostas is a redshirt freshman at the University of Dayton but the rest of the family moved into a new downtown complex before this season, with Giannis and Alexandros Antetokounmpo (a high school sophomore) housed on the fifth floor and Charles and Veronica on the fourth.“Leading your family is a lot tougher than basketball,” Antetokounmpo said. “Especially right now. But I’ve got to be strong for my family. “Things,” he continued, “are going to get better.”MOST IMPROVED NEEDS IMPROVEMENTHe’s not perfect despite the accolades. His outside game needs work and reading the game at both ends of the floor to make better decisions. “He’s like a plane that just started taking off,” Kidd said. “He’s at 10,000 feet.”When he arrived in Wisconsin, via the 15th overall pick in the 2013 N.B.A. draft – where he waved the Greek flag – Antetokounmpo was measured at 6 feet 9 inches and weighed less than 200 pounds. A half-decade later, he is closing in on 240 pounds, and coaches and teammates routinely refer to him as a 7-footer.Milwaukee assistant coach Frank Johnson, noting Antetokounmpo’s bulked-up body and added strength, said, “He gets bumped now and he loves it,” a tall test in the rough-and-tumble world of the NBA where muscle matters.Bryant, now in his second season of retirement, had seen enough coming into training camp to challenge Antetokounmpo via Twitter in late August to make a bid for the league’s Most Valuable Player Award. Bryant told the Times that he was moved by Antetokounmpo’s “rare physical gifts that are matched by a rare inner passion.”Bucks staffers do worry that Antetokounmpo is occasionally too hard on himself, having watched him head straight for the practice floor on the same night as a frustrating loss more times than they care to remember.After a home game 96-89 loss to the Boston Celtics he said it was all his fault, not his teammates, taking hard a loss of one game in an 82-game season that’s so long that some players just mail it in occasionally and could care less who they are playing for or even if they win or lose as long as they get paid. There’s no W’s and L’s on the checks.He’s not lost touch with the youth who didn’t seem to have a chance growing up in Greece and wanted to have a garage sale as a part of his recent move to pay homage to growing up in Athens. The Bucks’ front office and his mother Veronica talked him out of it.“I’m a great seller — that’s one of the other talents I have,” Antetokounmpo said. “I wanted to do it so bad. But they told me I couldn’t because three or four thousand people would show up.”He’s dyed-in-the-wool Milwaukee now, even with its frigid winters so unlike the sun and warmth of Athens and Greece. “I really don’t see Giannis going anywhere,” Redd said. “Even in the future.“With what he’s doing on the court, it’s going to automatically draw people to come play with him. I know people have that stigma about Milwaukee. But it won’t be hard for him to attract talent here. I just want a ring when they get a ring.”In the month since his father’s death, Antetokounmpo revealed that he often found himself looking at a picture on a private Instagram page he maintains. The image shows Giannis, Kostas, Alexandros and their older brother, Thanasis, who currently plays for Panathinaikos in Greece after a brief stint with the Knicks, all sleeping in the same bed.He said he was about 10 or 11, sharing one bed with three brothers as his parents slept in a small nearby den.“It’s an unbelievable story,” Antetokounmpo said. “Good stuff.” And it’s just getting started.TweetPinShare11 Shares Look, up over the backboard, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s ….. Giannis Antetokounmpo!It’s taken a little while for The Greek Freak as he’s called, Greece’s best basketball player, son of Nigerian immigrants who gave their sons Greek first names, to come into his own in the National Basketball Association but it seems like he’s on a path to join the pantheon of the game’s greatest ever players, a combination of Elgin Baylor, Connie Hawkins and Oscar Robertson – you have to go back to names from the past to compare him because few in the game today are his match.He didn’t lead Greece to the Olympics or Under-21 titles, didn’t play for his national team this year because he said he had a knee injury and – after criticism he didn’t have his heart in his homeland – had to watch while Greece couldn’t even quality for the European tournament.Antetokounmpo has elevated his game to superstar status while playing with one of the NBA’s still-mediocre teams, the Milwaukee Bucks, not a premier city to showcase his growing myth as a player who soars like a pterodactyl, and, at 6-11 with a 7-3 wingspan, handles the ball like a guard and can bring dunks from above like thunder from the gods.“I’ve never seen anybody like him,” former Buck star Michael Redd told the New York Times in a feature about the rapidly growing legend of Antetokounmpo. “We’ve never seen anything like this. The numbers he’s getting right now are almost on accident. Once he learns how to play play — unstoppable. It’s almost like he’s from another planet.”Not another planet, but another country – Greece – and he’s given the country downtrodden with more than 7 ½ years of bad news during a crushing economic crisis some good news and someone to look up to, apart from the anti-semitic, racist, anti-Capitalist, anti-immigrant extreme right Golden Dawn which wants racial pureness as a test of Greekness.Antetokounmpo is in his fifth season and became an All-Star last year as a highlight reel of shuttering dunks and floating in air toward the basket while people got out of the way. He won the NBA’s Most Improved Player Award, averaging 31.3 points, 10.6 rebounds and 5.1 assists this year improving on the most improved player, numbers never before exceeded: not by Larry Bird, Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, Lebron James. Nobody. Looks like the knee is better.And he’s still only 22 but as the Times reported, “No one has quite figured out how to size up this 6-foot-11 235-pounder who occasionally needs just one dribble from midcourt to swoop to the rim and does all that scoring without a dependable perimeter stroke to open up the rest of his game.” And get out of the way if you don’t want to get hurt because he’s gone 57 in two dribbles.FREAKISH STUFFWhat, exactly, is he? “Point all,” Bucks Coach Jason Kidd – who, when he played was one of the game’s greatest ball handlers, told the Times after trying to find the right definition.Veteran Bucks guard Jason Terry, referring to his former longtime teammate Dirk Nowitzki, the revolutionary power forward, said, “Dirk, in my eyes, is the best European player to ever play this game. He literally changed the way his position is played. But Giannis doesn’t even have a position. He does it all, and he’s still learning what to do out there.”What bumped Antetokounmpo above his peers this year is that he’s found a shooting touch and outside game, hitting 60 percent from the field, which means defenders can’t stay back, can’t stick on him and can’t stay with him.He’s a fan favorite not just because of his player but because, coming from Athens, he said he truly loves Milwaukee. This from a man who, when he was young, sold sunglasses around the Athens neighborhood of Sepolia for a few bucks before becoming a multi-millionaire with a galaxy-wide smile and unabashed humility.“I’m a low-profile guy,” he said. “I don’t like all these flashy cities like L.A. or Miami. I don’t know if I could be the same player if I played in those cities,” he told the paper.Antetokounmpo is in the first year of a four-year, $100 million contract extension — $11 million less than the maximum he could have signed for — but the Bucks know other teams are already planning pitches to lure him away in four years.Antetokounmpo is on a course to be eligible for a so-called “supermax” contract extension from the Bucks via the league’s new Designated Player Exception during the 2020 off-season, which would put him in line for a new deal well in excess of $200 million. Maybe he, like most, will take the money and leave Milwaukee when the time comes but said in a Tweet that “I got loyalty inside my DNA,” although his country’s own basketball federation doubted that when he said the knee soreness would keep him from playing for Greece.He’s even moved his family to Milwaukee, a happy time saddened with the sudden passing of his father on Sept. 29 at age 54 from a heart attack.  “I can feel the love from the city every day I step on the floor,” Antetokounmpo said. “For me, what I’m going through now, I appreciate it even more.”last_img read more

Tight Race for Serie A Title But a Big Spender is Missing

first_imgMILAN (AP) — In one of the tightest Serie A title races of recent seasons, there is one noticeable absentee.AC Milan was expected to be back at the top after spending more than 200 million euros (nearly $250 million) on new players in the offseason.However, it approaches the halfway stage a lowly 11th in the standings, and there have been claims over the financial stability of the Chinese-led consortium that purchased the club from Silvio Berlusconi for $800 million in April.Milan fired coach Vincenzo Montella in November and replaced him with former player Gennaro Gattuso but there has been little change in fortunes.Gattuso’s first match in charge was a draw against Benevento, which had not picked up a single point until that moment, and he has lost two of his three league matches since then.To make matters worse for the Rossoneri, they have been forced to watch as bitter neighbor Inter Milan has proved itself a surprise contender for the Serie A title.Champions League qualification was seen as the minimum requirement for Milan this season, especially with Italy sending four teams to Europe’s premier club competition next year, but it is 14 points off the final berth.Indeed, Milan is closer to the relegation zone than the top four as only nine points separates it from the bottom three of Crotone, Hellas Verona and Benevento — which still has just that point it earned against the Rossoneri.After 18 of 38 rounds, a closer look at the first half of the season:___TITLE RACEThis could be the season that Juve’s stranglehold on the Serie A title is ended.Juventus has won the Italian league in each of the last six seasons but there are several challengers to its crown this year, and just nine points between the top five sides.Napoli leads the pack, with 45 points, one ahead of Juventus and five above Inter. Roma has 38 points, two more than Lazio, but both the capital sides have played a match less than the top three.However, while Juventus undoubtedly has the experience and capability of withstanding a tough title battle, there are question marks over its rivals.Napoli, whose only league defeat was against Juventus, does not have much strength in depth and has already had several players ruled out with long-term injuries.Inter’s problem is its staying power: it led the league two years ago but collapsed and eventually finished fourth, well off the pace. There are signs a repeat could be on the cards as Inter, which was the last unbeaten team in the league, has lost its past two matches.___PICK OF THE PLAYERSLorenzo Insigne wasn’t even born when Napoli last won the Serie A title. He could now fire his hometown club to its next league trophy.Insigne has been at the heart of most of Napoli’s goals this season and coach Maurizio Sarri believes the 26-year-old is as important to the team as Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar are for Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, respectively.Insigne made 60 consecutive starts for Napoli in all competitions before his injury against Juventus and it was no coincidence the team struggled to create goals while he was on the sidelines.The Italy forward has scored two goals in three matches since his return and Sarri will be hoping he stays injury-free if Napoli is going to win its first Serie A title since Diego Maradona led the club to its only two championships in 1987 and 1990.___EMERGING TALENTLucas Torreira, a 21-year-old defensive midfielder for Sampdoria, leads the league in balls won and is also the most fouled player in Serie A — not to mention he scored the second goal in a 3-2 win over Juventus in November.Winger Federico Chiesa and striker Giovanni Simeone have shown second-generation talent for Fiorentina. Chiesa’s father, Enrico, was a prolific scorer, while Simeone’s dad, Diego, was a standout Serie A player and is the current coach of Atletico Madrid.Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, Torino’s 20-year-old goalkeeper, came forward and showed potential attacking skills by smashing a 30-yard (meter) free kick off the crossbar in the Italian Cup last month, then saved a penalty from Edin Dzeko in a 2-1 win over Roma to reach the quarterfinals.Also, Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto has shown himself to be a capable assist man, and Udinese midfielder Antonin Barak has scored four goals in his last three matches.___SURPRISE TEAMLazio would not have been on many people’s lists for title contenders.However, an impressive start to the season has left it in fifth place. Indeed, if it wins its match in hand, Lazio could move to within a point of third-place Inter and six below leader Napoli.Lazio has already beaten Juventus twice this season, in the Italian Super Cup in August and in the league in October.Leading goalscorer Ciro Immobile netted four goals in those two matches. The Italy forward has scored 16 in as many league matches so far this season.Young coach Simone Inzaghi has the team playing attractive football and the capital side is challenging on three fronts this season. It is also in the semifinals of the Italian Cup and in the knockout stages of the Europa League.___POINT TO PROVEThere was much fanfare when Leonardo Bonucci joined Milan in July and he was immediately handed the Rossoneri captaincy.The fee for Bonucci’s surprise move from Juventus topped 40 million euros (nearly $50 million), and he signed a five-year contract worth up to 10 million euros (nearly $12 million) per season — making the 30-year-old the highest-paid player in Italy.Bonucci started poorly and it was figured he just needed some time to adapt to his new surroundings at Milan after seven seasons at Juventus, most of which was spent alongside Andrea Barzagli and Giorgio Chiellini for club and country.However, there has been little improvement and Bonucci was even sent off in a 0-0 draw against Genoa for elbowing a defender in the head, causing him to miss two matches.___DANIELLA MATAR, Associated PressTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Once Indisputable, Real Madrid’s Marcelo a Target of Critics

first_imgBy: Tales Azzoni, AP Sports WriterMADRID (AP) — It’s not a good sign that nearly every time Real Madrid coach Santiago Solari is asked about Marcelo he mentions the player’s great past with the club.Clearly, it has become harder to talk about the player’s current achievements.Marcelo was an indisputable starter for more than a decade with Real Madrid, considered by many the best left back in the world. But this season, the Brazilian’s performances have come in for criticism.The clamor for dropping Marcelo only increased after a lackluster display on Wednesday in the Copa del Rey semifinal against Barcelona. He struggled on defense and added little in attack.Solari again avoided talking about Marcelo’s performance.“Marcelo is our second captain (after Sergio Ramos), he is 100 percent committed to Real Madrid, always puts the club first,” Solari said briefly. “We always work to make sure that all of our players are at their best.”Marcelo’s fitness is often brought up by his critics, who say the 30-year-old player hasn’t been able to keep up with opposing attackers like he used to. Some blamed him for not doing enough to keep Barcelona from scoring the second-half equalizer at Camp Nou Stadium. He didn’t follow Malcom into the area and the forward was free to pick up a loose ball and score.Marcelo never seemed comfortable against Malcom and had trouble containing him. He also made little impact on attack, which has been one of his greatest attributes.Marcelo’s struggles aren’t new. Last year, Solari didn’t hide his frustration with the player’s performances, saying he wanted to see “greater effort,” especially on defense.It seemed a vote of confidence by Solari to pick Marcelo for Wednesday’s clasico, but the Brazilian wasn’t able to make the most of it. He hasn’t played as often since the coach took over and started giving more minutes to young left back Sergio Reguilon from the youth squad.Marcelo has played only three league matches this year, with most of his appearances in the Copa del Rey. He was ordinary against Girona in the Copa round of 16, where Madrid conceded three times in the two-game series.Not long ago there were widespread rumors about Marcelo joining his friend Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus, and talks about him trying to move to midfield, where his physical condition wouldn’t be so crucial and he would be able to make better use of his great skills with the ball.Marcelo joined Real Madrid from Brazilian club Fluminense in 2007 and quickly became the obvious substitute to fellow Brazilian left back Roberto Carlos. Marcelo helped Real Madrid win four Spanish leagues and four Champions Leagues, in addition to four Club World Cups. He played in two World Cups for Brazil, being one of the captains in the 2018 tournament in Russia.Solari gave no hints about whether he would keep Marcelo in the lineup on Saturday for the league derby at Atletico Madrid. Real Madrid can pass Atletico for second place with a win at Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. The club then travels to the Netherlands to face Ajax in the round of 16 of the Champions League.“We are going step by step,” the coach said. “We just finished this match and now we will have a few days to work and start thinking about the league match.”TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Identifying requirements for enhancing privacy in embedded designs

first_imgAs Internet-connected devices become more prevalent, they are fueling an increasing risk to privacy. Fortunately, there are now many off-the-shelf chips and services available to help designs resist intrusion and prevent unauthorized access to private data. The key lies in identifying the specific threats that need mitigation.Broadly stated, privacy entails keeping designated information inaccessible without authorization from the information’s owner. Privacy involves security; information cannot be kept private without also keeping it secure. But they are not the same thing. Security for information also involves preventing malicious alteration or destruction. In that sense, information can be kept secure without being kept private.There are many reasons to keep information private, with one of the major ones the many governmental regulations and requirements worldwide for maintaining privacy of information that can be associated with an individual person, known as personally identifiable information (PII). Much of what constitutes PII is obvious – things like a person’s name, address, account numbers, location, health status, images, and activities are all PII that most would recognize as meriting privacy.But other types of information that might need to be kept secure are not as obviously private, because the information in and of itself is not personally identifiable. Paired with a second piece of information, however, that first piece can become identifiable, thus requiring privacy. For example, a connected thermostat’s temperature setting may not seem like it needs privacy protection. Somewhere a thermostat is set to 55 degrees. So, what? Pair that setting with information about the thermostat’s current location, however, and it suddenly becomes personal. Someone knowing that a specific house has its thermostat set to 55 degrees may allow them to infer that the owners are on vacation and the house is relatively safe to burgle.In electronic devices the information, or data, that may need to be kept secure is substantial. Both data at rest, i.e., in memory or storage, as well as data in motion, passing through the network or along wires and circuits, will need protection. If that protection involves encryption, which it usually does, then the encryption keys must also be protected. And in addition to the personal data and keys present or moving about, designers may need to ensure that system software and firmware is safe from tampering, lest a “bad actor” alter system behavior to make it disclose information that was to be kept private.There are also a substantial, and growing, number of ways in which electronic data security can be compromised. Remote attackers can eavesdrop on network communications. A “man in the middle” can intercept messages in transit and pretend to be the intended recipient, passing along messages between the legitimate parties to conceal the interruption. A remote attacker also can send messages that trigger system weaknesses, insert malware during provisioning or over-the-air updates, or exploit other code vulnerabilities. Figure 1: There are many forms of attack that can compromise data security, requiring many different countermeasures. (Image source: ARM) The threat model thus developed will help guide the hardware and software design attributes required for protecting data privacy. Fortunately, the semiconductor industry has been developing numerous devices and services that address most threats and offers developer support in identifying applying the right countermeasures. Identify the assets (data) they need to protect. For privacy this will include any PII present or in motion through the device. It also must include encryption keys if used, and may need to include system firmware, identity codes, message metadata, and more. Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: IoT If the attacker has physical access, or even just proximity, to a system then additional attack avenues open, both intrusive and non-intrusive. Probing of signal buses can reveal private information as it flows through the system. Monitoring power lines or EMI radiation can provide information that allows recovery of encryption keys. Altering the content of or even replacing code storage devices is also possible with physical access, as is stripping away packaging to expose die for probing and analysis.Physical access attacks on data security can occur at times other than after a device is deployed, as well. Bad actors can copy encryption keys, or even clone whole systems, during manufacturing and assembly, for instance. A device’s clone can then operate in a system as though it belongs there, bypassing nearly all forms of security with “inside” activity. And once a device is retired from service and discarded, someone can acquire it and extract information at their leisure.No single method provides security against the myriad types of attack possible and implementing all possible security methods can be prohibitively expensive. Also, attack opportunities and risk vary by application. So, developers must choose carefully what methods they will implement. The place to start is before beginning detailed design, by creating a threat model. The model should consider not only the device itself, but the systems connected to it. It should also examine the environment of the device’s normal operational setting, as well as throughout its entire life cycle.In developing the threat model, there are several steps developers should take: Determine the countermeasures that will be required and their implementation cost in terms of design time, performance, and bills of material. Identify the types of attack these assets might be subject to, estimate their likelihood, and evaluate a successful attack’s impact. Be sure to include the device’s whole lifecycle, including manufacturing, deployment, and disposal. This will help identify which threats are serious enough to require mitigation.

Harry Kane does for England what Beckham and Rooney couldn’t

first_imgHarry Kane put up an inspired performance on Monday as England edged out Tunisia 2-1 in their World Cup 2018 opener at the Volgograd Arena.Kane had scored the first goal for England in the 11th minute but a controversial penalty against Kyle Walker meant Ferjani Sassi brought Tunisia level at 1-1.Thereafter, despite launching a number of attacks and constantly being a threat, England failed to break through the solid Tunisian defence.In the first minute of the injury time, Kane scored a free header to give England a memorable win. With the late winner, Kane scored England first-ever 90+ minutes winner in regular time during a World Cup match.2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGENot only did Kane rescue England from what would have been an embarrassing defeat, he also became England’s second highest goalscorer after the first 25 international games.With 15 goals from 25 matches, Kane remained only behind the now-pundit Gary Lineker, who scored 20 goals after playing his first 25 games for England.Also, Kane is the first English player to score two or more goals within normal time at a World Cup game since Lineker against Paraguay in 1986.FIFA WORLD CUP: FIXTURES | POINTS TABLEIn fact, Kane has now scored two goals in his debut match of the World Cup and has already surpassed Wayne Rooney, who had scored just one goal in three World Cup appearances.Interestingly, Kane made his international debut on March 27, 2015 at the Wembley Stadium when he came on as a substitute for Rooney against Lithuania and scored just 80 seconds later off a Raheem Sterling cross.advertisementAlso read – World Cup 2018: Kane, Lukaku star as European nations dominate againSince the time he was first named England’s captain on June 19, 2017, Kane has scored every single time he has captained the country — a statistic that shows his leadership quality.On his captaincy debut during England’s World Cup qualifier against Scotland, Kane had scored an added time equaliser to help England draw 2-2.Also read – World Cup 2018: Harry Kane ecstatic after scoring late winner vs TunisiaYesterday’s late goal was a winner!Kane stooped at the far post to turn in a header in the 91st minute just when it looked like England were going to extend their disappointing run in World Cup tournaments.Also read – World Cup 2018: England coach Southgate labels Harry Kane ‘top striker’After the result, Group G is topped by Belgium, who beat Panama 3-0 earlier while England are second with an equal three points but inferior goal difference.last_img read more

Injured Jasprit Bumrah ruled out of limited-overs series in England

I think I became much more focussed after my father’s death: Virat Kohli

first_imgVirat Kohli’s journey to the top has been well chronicled, but his humble beginnings too need a special mention.Recently, Kohli became the third ever Indian cricketer, after Sachin Tendulkar (1997-98) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (2007), to win the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award.The journey started way back in December 2006, when a young 18-year-old boy from Uttam Nagar walked out to bat for his Ranji Trophy team, Delhi, hours after his father passed away.”It happened in my arms. It was 3 in the morning, and I was batting overnight. I was 40 not out, and I had to go in the morning and bat the next day because it was a four-day Ranji Trophy cricket. We just couldn’t get help. We tried to get help from the neighbours, whoever we knew was a doctor. It was such a time of the night that no one responded. By the time ambulance and everything came, everything was already gone,” Kohli told in soon-to-be-aired television documentary on National Geographic.Also read – Virat Kohli, Mirabai Chanu named by Sports Ministry for Khel Ratna Award”I think I became much more focussed after that [father’s death]. I lost total desire of wanting to do the other stuff and put all my energy into realizing my dream and my father’s dream as well,” Kohli said.Delhi were playing Karnataka and he was batting on 40 overnight. Most of his teammates did not expect him to come to the ground after the loss of his father, but Kohli has always been a thorough professional. He walked out and scored 90 to save Delhi from a follow-on.advertisement”The incident that has changed me is the first season in Ranji Trophy where my father had passed away and I had to go out and play. Unknowingly it made me the person I’m today,” Kohli had said in an exclusive interview to India Today.Also read – How Kohli was chosen for Khel Ratna over Bajrang Punia. Sports Ministry explainsKohli has come a long way now — from leading the country’s U-19 team to World Cup glory back in 2008 to leading India’s charge in dominating the world of cricket in all forms of the game.The Indian captain led with the bat and finished with 593 runs from 10 innings at an average of 59.30, hitting two centuries and three fifties. India though failed to rid themselves of ghosts of visits past.Kohli’s performance with the bat in tricky conditions of England has definitely helped to reassert himself as the best batsman in the world. The series has also helped him to exorcise the ghosts of the horrible tour of 2014.Kohli chose to opt out of the ongoing Asia Cup to rest his body and manage his jam-packed schedule. He will likely be seen in action in the two-Test series against West Indies at home next month.last_img read more

Hyundai Santro all-set for a reveal tomorrow and here is what we can expect

first_imgHyundai is all set to reveal its much-awaited compact hatch Santro tomorrow. The AH2 hatchback has been spotted testing a number of times already and is slated to replace the Eon which is in dire need of an update. The Eon is powered by a BS3 compliant motor, which makes it all the more important for a new replacement.Here are top five things to expect:One:In accordance to sources, the Hyundai Santro is expected to carry a starting price of around Rs 3.50 lakh. The AMT-equipped variant will not be the top-spec model and is expected to carry a premium of around Rs 33,000 more than its manual siblings. The top-spec Santro will cost around Rs 5.50 lakh, ex-showroom.The Hyundai Santro hatchback will feature a substantial list of equipment and features which will be a first in the compact hatchback segment. Hyundai is planning to bring a single petrol variant with a potential diesel variant in the months to come.Two:The Santro will feature a touchscreen infotainment system which will be the same unit seen onboard the Hyundai Elantra sedan and also on the top-spec Hyundai i10 Grande. The system gets a new faster processor and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also doubles up as a display for the reverse camera.On the interior, the Santro takes a lot of cues from the current gen Hyundai i10 Grande. Sporting a dual tone look, the next-gen Santro gets a 7-inch touchscreen with dual vertical air-vents. The central console also gets circular knobs for the climate control, air-flow, and AC blower knob.advertisementThree:One of the other potential major features the Hyundai Santro is slated to get is the presence of rear AC vents which is obviously a segment first in the compact hatch space.Hyundai is also slated to offer an option of a “Smart Auto AMT Transmission” unit on the Santro. The Santro is tipped to be powered by a 1.1-litre Epsilon petrol powerplant churning out a modest 64bhp and mated to a 5-speed manual, or the Smart Auto AMT Transmission. Hyundai is also tipped to offer a CNG variant of the Santro as well.Four:In terms of safety, the AH2 hatch (codename) will also get a host of safety features which are in line with the all-new safety mandate coming into effect starting in July 2019. The safety features will include ABS, EBD, seatbelt reminder, speed warning system, and reverse parking sensors. Hyundai will also include speed sensing door locks as standard.Five:The AH2 Santro hatchback will get the traditional tall-boy design of the first gen Santro. On the exterior design front, the Santro AH2 will get Hyundai’s characteristic radiator grille, LED DRLs on headlamps, and a fat C-Pillar. On the interior, the Santro AH2 hatch will get a touchscreen infotainment system, air-con, and the basic tidbits.Hyundai will be launching the Santro hatchback officially on October 23. Once launched, it will go head-on with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Tata Tiago, and the Datsun Go facelift.last_img read more
