Jaywardene not really worried about Daredevils' losing streak

Delhi Daredevils skipper Mahela Jayawardene was not worried after his team slumped tonight to its fourth consecutive loss this season in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and hoped that his boys would keep improving in the remaining games.

"Not really worried. We are playing some good cricket. A couple of good games have not gone our way. We have to keep improving," he said.
 
Jayawardene admitted he was not right in assessing the nature of the track against Sunrisers Hyderabad. 
 
"The bowling was pretty good, but I don't think we assessed the wicket well. We were looking at 160-170, but the wicket was more like 140. If we had assessed the wicket better, the shot selection would have been better," he said. 
 
The Sri Lankan was all praise for the youngsters in his team.
 
"The bowlers did a good job and created opportunities for us, but we didn't have enough on the board. Nadeem has been some talent for us. Kedar is a guy we know can deliver for us. It has been up and down but quite happy with the effort of some of the boys. Delhi fans have been always supportive. It hasn't happened so far in the season, but we will repay the faith," he said.
 
Jayawardene's compatriot and Sunrisers skipper Kumar Sangakkara said his team should have finished it off with three to four overs in hand.
 
"Proud to lead the Hyderabad Sunrisers. A hard-fought win today. We should have finished with three-four overs in hand. We didn't have the greatest of the starts, but in the middle too we got bogged down. All credit to Steyno, Mishra, Reddy and Parthiv too. But the bowling was outstanding. It is a good start, but a lot of hard work to do. we have lost a couple of players to injuries," he said.
 
Sunrisers leggie Amit Mishra, who was adjudged Man of the Match for his all-round show, admitted there was some pressure.
 
"Bit of pressure there. I have been improving my batting for the last two seasons. It helped me here. I am trying my best, working hard on batting and fielding. The team's win is more important for me than my personal contribution. Great support from Tom, Sanga and the owners," he said.

Sunrisers Hyderabad made 62 for two wickets in the first 10 of their 20 overs against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the ninth match of the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium here today.

Skipper Kumar Sangakkara (23) and Cameron White (7) were at the crease at the half-way mark.
 
Opting to bat first after Sangakkara won the toss, Sunrisers lost opener Akshath Reddy (12, 2x4), caught by Vinay Kumar off Rudra Pratap Singh, with the total at 12 in the third over.
 
Parthiv Patel (20, 2x4) and Sangakkara then added 38 runs for the second wicket before Muthaiah Muralitharan bowled the former.
 
The two teams were involved in an exciting tie two days ago at Hyderabad after which the match had gone into the super over in which Sunrisers Hyderabad won.
 
For Sunrisers, that was their second consecutive win in their first appearance in the tournament, having beaten Pune Warriors by 22 runs in their opening match on April 4.
 
RCB had beaten Mumbai Indians by two runs in a thriller on April 5.
 
The home team made two changes with Tillakaratne Dilshan and Karun Nair making way for AB De Villiers and Rudra Pratap Singh.
 
Sunrisers made one change with Biplab Samantray coming in for Ankit Sharma.
 
The visitors began on a brisk note as Reddy took seven runs off the first over from Singh, including a four to fine leg. He then slammed Vinay Kumar over mid-on for another four. Singh had Reddy caught at mid-on by Vinay Kumar with the first ball of his next over.

Sangakkara was aggressive from the word go, as he drove Singh through the crowded off-side for four. In the next over, he slammed Vinay Kumar towards the sight-screen for another four.
 
Patel, too, got into the act and flicked Jayadev Unadkat to the deep backward square leg boundary. At the end of five overs, Sunrisers were on 32 for one.
 
Muralitharan came on at this stage, and Patel got a top edge, while attempting a sweep, and the ball raced to the deep mid-wicket boundary. Eight runs came off that over.
 
Patel, however, fell to Muralitharan in his next over, knocking back his off-stump as the batsman wented for a lofted drive only to see the ball slip between the bat and pad. Patel's 20 came off 19 balls and included two fours.
 
Sangakkara and Cameron White picked up six off Murali Kartik's first over. White got an outside edge off Muralitharan that went past the slip to the fence for four. At the end of 10 overs, Sunrisers were on 62/2.

Debutants Sunrisers Hyderabad outplayed Pune Warriors by 22 runs in the third match of the sixth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here tonight.

Put in to bat first, Sunrisers could manage only a modest 126 for six from their 20 overs, but then, in a remarkable comeback, bowled out the visitors for 104 in 18.5 overs.
 
Opener Robin Uthappa was the topscorer for Pune Warriors with 24. His opening partner Manish Pandey (15), Ross Taylor (19) and Abhishek Nayar (19) were the only other Pune batsmen to get into double figures.
 
For Sunrisers, fast bowler Dale Steyn picked up three for 11 and spinner Amit Mishra three for 19 to wreck the Pune batting. Thisara Perera got two for 29 and Ashish Reddy picked up one for 21.

Mishra was adjudged the Man of the Match.
 
The visitors began their chase on a cautious note, and the first  five overs yielded just 18 runs. In the sixth over, Uthappa sent one from Ishant Sharma soaring for a six over long-on with a lofted drive.
 
Uthappa then took two fours off Perera in the next over but departed two balls later, caught by wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel. His 24 was made from 22 balls with one six and two fours.
 
In the ninth over, Samuels got four off Perera through a bottom edge that went past the lone slip. Two balls later, he offered White at first slip a simple catch after making just 5.
 
Yuvraj Singh walked in amid loud cheers from the crowds, but he did not last very long. He fell to Amit Mishra, who had him stumped by Patel with a flat delivery that turned down the leg side, leaving the batsman stranded. Yuvraj faced only five balls and made just 2.

In the 12th over, Mishra got rid of Pandey, caught at point by White after he had made 15 off 29 balls.
 
Abhishek Nayar managed to get four off a googly from Mishra that he could ahrdly read. He then flicked Ashish Reddy to the deep backward square leg fence for another four.
 
At the end of 15 overs, Pune Warriors had made 78 for four, still needing 49 runs.
 
Nayar departed in the next over, caught at extra cover off Mishra. He had made 19 off 14 balls with two fours.
 
Much was expected of Ross Taylor, but he fell in the next over, bowled by Reddy with a slower one. His 19 came off an equal number of balls.
 
Mitchel Marsh raised some hopes with a huge six off Reddy as Pune reached 94 for six at the end of 17 overs. However, Marsh was run out off the first ball of the next over. Mathews had smashed a low full-toss from Perera, which the bowler tried to stop and ended up deflecting the ball on to the stumps. Marsh was yards outside the crease at the bowler's end.
 
Steyn bowled Bhuvneshwar Kumar off the second ball of the 19th over. Rahul Sharma fell to the very next ball, bowled and Steyn was on a hat-trick. Ashok Dinda prevented the hat-trick, but fell off the next ball, caught at first slip by White.
 
Earlier, put in to bat first, Sunrisers made 126 for six from their 20 overs, with Thisara Perera top-scoring for them with 30. Openers Akshath Reddy (23 and Parthiv Patel (18) were also among the runs.

Skipper Kumara Sangakkara (15), Cameron White (10) and Hanuma Vihari (11) were the other Hyderabad batsmen to get into double figures.
 
For Pune Warriors, Ashok Dinda took two for 29, while Marlon Samuels, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Sharma and Yuvraj Singh picked up a wicket apiece.
 
Sunrisers got off to a good start after Pune Warriors skipper Angelo Mathews put them in to bat first, with Reddy and Patel batting steadily and keeping the runs flowing, especially in singles and twos. Reddy took a four off Bhuvneshwar Kumar through extra cover as the side reached 10/0 in the first two overs.
 
In the next, Patel came forward and despatched Dinda over cover for another four. He then smashed Marlon Samuels for two fours, one a thick edge to the third-man boundary and the second a shot in the same region, as Sunrisers reached 32/0 at the end of five overs.
 
The left-handed Patel fell in the sixth over, bowled by Dinda, who knocked his off-stump back. The Hyderabad team was 34 for one in 5.2 overs at that stage. Sangakkara, the next man in, appeared to be in good nick and hit Dinda for four to deep backward point.
 
In the next over, he guided a slower one from Mathews to deep backward square leg for another four.
 
Leg-break bowler Rahul Sharma was brought on at this stage, and he conceded just four in his first over. In the next, Reddy smashed Mathews to deep mid-wicket for four.
 
In the next over, Sharma claimed Sangakkara, who stepped out for a big hit and was beaten by the tossed up delivery which turned and uprooted his middle stump.

Mathews brought Yuvraj Singh on, and his first over yielded seven runs for Sunrisers. Things had slowed down a bit in the middle, with Sharma conceding just four in his next.
 
Yuvraj kept up the pressure, as the Hyderabad batsmen found it difficult to force the pace. Off the last ball of the 13th over, he got a breakthrough when Reddy charged down, missed the line and saw his leg-stump knocked down. 
Reddy's 27 was made off 30 balls and included two fours.
 
Thisara Perera, the new man in, hit Sharma for two consecutive fours, first through extra cover and then past the bowler. In the next over, Samuels had White caught at deep mid-wicket by Marsh. The batsman had made 10 off 18 balls.
 
At the end of the 15th over, Sunrisers were 87 for four and clearly had a problem with the run-rate. Five runs came off Kumar's next over.
 
Perera brightened up things for the local crowd as he struck Samuels for four over mid-wicket and then lifted him over the long-on fence for six.
 
Dinda came back into the attack and soon had Perera, who mistimed a big hit, caught at long-on by Pandey. Perera's 30 came off 18 balls and included a six and three fours. After 18 overs, Sunrisers were on 113 for five.
 
Hanuma Vihari was the next to go, caught at short fine leg by Dinda off Kumar. He made 11 off 12 balls with one four.
 
Ravi Teja (4 not out) and Ashish Reddy (7 not out) managed to add nine, including a four by Reddy off Dinda, in the last over as Sunrisers ended up at 126 for six from their 20 overs.

Chasing 127 for a win, Pune Warriors reached 48 for three in the first 10 of their 20 overs against debutants Sunrisers Hyderabad in the third match of the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here tonight.
 
Manish Pandey (14) and Ross Taylor (1) were at the crease at the half-way mark.
 
The Pune batsmen to fall were Robin Uthappa (24, 2x4), Marlon Samuels 5) and Yuvraj Singh (2).
 
The visitors began their chase on a cautious note, and the first  five overs yielded just 18 runs. In the sixth over, Uthappa sent one from Ishant Sharma soaring for a six over long-on with a lofted drive.
 
Uthappa then took two fours off Perera in the next over but departed two balls later, caught by wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel. His 24 was made from 22 balls with one six and two fours.
 
In the ninth over, Samuels got four off Perera through a bottom edge that went past the lone slip. Two balls later, he offered White at first slip a simple catch after making just 5.
 
Yuvraj Singh walked in amid loud cheers from the crowds, but he did not last very long. He fell to Amit Mishra, who had him stumped by Patel with a flat delivery that turned down the leg side, leaving the batsman stranded. Yuvraj faced only five balls and made just 2.
 
Earlier, put in to bat first, Sunrisers made 126 for six from their 20 overs, with Thisara Perera top-scoring for them with 30. Openers Akshath Reddy (23 and Parthiv Patel (18) were also among the runs.
 
Skipper Kumara Sangakkara (15), Cameron White (10) and Hanuma Vihari (11) were the other Hyderabad batsmen to get into double figures.
 
For Pune Warriors, Ashok Dinda took two for 29, while Marlon Samuels, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Sharma and Yuvraj Singh picked up a wicket apiece.
 
Sunrisers got off to a good start after Pune Warriors skipper Angelo Mathews put them in to bat first, with Reddy and Patel batting steadily and keeping the runs flowing, especially in singles and twos. Reddy took a four off Bhuvneshwar Kumar through extra cover as the side reached 10/0 in the first two overs.
 
In the next, Patel came forward and despatched Dinda over cover for another four. He then smashed Marlon Samuels for two fours, one a thick edge to the third-man boundary and the second a shot in the same region, as Sunrisers reached 32/0 at the end of five overs.

The left-handed Patel fell in the sixth over, bowled by Dinda, who knocked his off-stump back. The Hyderabad team was 34 for one in 5.2 overs at that stage. Sangakkara, the next man in, appeared to be in good nick and hit Dinda for four to deep backward point.
 
In the next over, he guided a slower one from Mathews to deep backward square leg for another four.
 
Leg-break bowler Rahul Sharma was brought on at this stage, and he conceded just four in his first over. In the next, Reddy smashed Mathews to deep mid-wicket for four.
 
In the next over, Sharma claimed Sangakkara, who stepped out for a big hit and was beaten by the tossed up delivery which turned and uprooted his middle stump.
 
Mathews brought Yuvraj Singh on, and his first over yielded seven runs for Sunrisers. Things had slowed down a bit in the middle, with Sharma conceding just four in his next.
 
Yuvraj kept up the pressure, as the Hyderabad batsmen found it difficult to force the pace. Off the last ball of the 13th over, he got a breakthrough when Reddy charged down, missed the line and saw his leg-stump knocked down. 
Reddy's 27 was made off 30 balls and included two fours.
 
Thisara Perera, the new man in, hit Sharma for two consecutive fours, first through extra cover and then past the bowler. In the next over, Samuels had White caught at deep mid-wicket by Marsh. The batsman had made 10 off 18 balls.
 
At the end of the 15th over, Sunrisers were 87 for four and clearly had a problem with the run-rate. Five runs came off Kumar's next over.

Perera brightened up things for the local crowd as he struck Samuels for four over mid-wicket and then lifted him over the long-on fence for six.
 
Dinda came back into the attack and soon had Perera, who mistimed a big hit, caught at long-on by Pandey. Perera's 30 came off 18 balls and included a six and three fours. After 18 overs, Sunrisers were on 113 for five.
 
Hanuma Vihari was the next to go, caught at short fine leg by Dinda off Kumar. He made 11 off 12 balls with one four.
 
Ravi Teja (4 not out) and Ashish Reddy (7 not out) managed to add nine, including a four by Reddy off Dinda, in the last over as Sunrisers ended up at 126 for six from their 20 overs.

Dr Reddy's settles claims with Nordion Inc of Canada for $ 22.5 million

ADVERTISEMENT

Pharmaceuticals major Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories today said it had settled its claims against Nordion Inc. (formerly MDS Inc.), in a case pending in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, for a cash payment of $ 22.5 million by the Canada-based firm to it.

The settlement was concluded on March 20 with the receipt of the settlement funds by Dr. Reddy’s, a press release from the company said here today.
 
The case was brought by Dr. Reddy’s in April 2009 seeking damages sustained by the company caused by a claimed breach by Nordion (then MDS) of its Laboratory Services Agreement with Dr. Reddy’s.  
 
Nordion, as a contract research organization, provided laboratory services to Dr. Reddy’s, including bio-equivalency studies, to support Dr. Reddy’s regulatory applications for approval of generic drugs, including Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs) filed with the United States Food and Drug Administration (the USFDA) for approval to market generic drugs in the United States.
 
The case arose after the USFDA cited MDS with violations of good laboratory practices which caused the USFDA not to accept, without further substantiation, MDS’s laboratory reports performed during the period 2000-2004.

Dr. K. Anji Reddy, founder and chairman of pharmaceuticals major Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories Ltd., passed away here this evening after battling a lung disorder for the past few months. 

He was admitted to a hospital here about ten days ago and breathed his last around 4.30 pm today, sources said.

In improving access to affordable, high quality medicines and in innovation, his contributions have been extraordinary. His philanthropic initiatives made a difference in the lives of so many Indians in the areas of livelihood, education, clean drinking water and healthcare. A nation is grateful to a man who paved a way for the delivery of affordable medicines to the masses and made us believe and take pride in innovation as a means to prosperity.”

India thrash Australia by an innings and 135 runs, lead series 2-0

 
India beat Australia at second Test in Hyderabad

It took just a session for India to wrap up the proceedings and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy with a massive innings and 135 runn-win against Australia in the second cricket Test at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here today.

The win came with more than five sessions to spare as the Australian batsmen again displayed their vulnerabilities against spin.
 
With the win, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni surpassed Sourav Ganguly as the most successful Indian Test captain with 21 Test wins. 
 
Resuming the day at 74 for two, Australia always had only slim chances and soon they 
crumbled like a pack of cards against the spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin (5/63) and Ravindra Jadeja (3/33). They lost the last eight wickets for 57 runs and were skittled out for 131 in the second innings by lunch on the fourth day. 
 
Australia, who had declared their first innings at 237/9, also became the first team in the history of Test cricket to lose by an innings after declaring their first innings closed.
 
India, who suffered a batting collapse on the third day, got to 503 in the first innings, thanks largely to a 370-run stand between Cheteshwar Pujara (204) and Murali Vijay (167).
 
Pujara, who got his second double Test ton, was adjudged as Man of the Match.
 
India were always in complete control of the match and it was just a matter of time since they were just eight wickets short of an innings win. 
 
Pacer Ishant Sharma got his first wicket of the series as he removed Shane Watson (9) with a harmless delivery. Watson tried to play a length ball down the leg-side but played too fine and Dhoni took a nice diving catch. 
 
Left-arm spinner Jadeja then struck in consecutive overs to get rid of skipper Michael Clarke (16) and Ed Cowan (44) as Australia slumped from 78 for three to 111 for five.
 
Jadeja got rid of Clarke, for the second time in the match, with what can well be described as the ball of the match. Jadeja's delivery drifted onto middle stump and spun back to beat Clarke's forward defensive to crash into off. 
 
The left-arm spinner then removed overnight batsman Cowan as Sehwag took a good catch at first slip after the ball ricocheted off Dhoni's pads. 
 
Jadeja was also excellent on the field and got a direct throw from the cover to get rid of Moises Henriques, who did not trouble the scorers, with the score stranded at 111/6.
 
The last four wickets fell for just 20 runs as Ashwin and Jadeja attacked in tandem to wrap up the tail.
 
Both the teams now travel to Mohali for the third Test from March 14. The fourth and the final Test will be played in Delhi from March 22.
 
At Mohali, the pitch has always helped the seamers but with Australia trailing 0-2, the curators may prepare a rank turner to help India finish off the series.
 
Scoreboard:

India in complete control of Hyderabad Test

Cheteshwar Pujara
Cheteshwar Pujara

India were in firm control of the second cricket Test against Australia despite suffering a batting collapse after a 370-run stand on the third day at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here today.

With Australia struggling at 74 for two in the second innings, India, who made 503 in their first innings, lead by 192 runs.
 
At stumps, Ed Cowan was batting on 26 and Shane Watson on nine. Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin picked up the wickets of David Warner (26) and Phil Hughes.
 
India started the day on a positive note after Cheteshwar Pujara scored 204, his second double century, and Murali Vijay hit 167 for the 370-run stand for the second wicket. 
 
But things took a sudden turn in the second session as the last seven wickets fell for 110 runs, leaving the hosts with a 266-run first innings lead. Australia had declared their first innings at 237 for nine. 
 
Off-spinner Glenn Maxwell (4-127) finally found some luck, after nearly four sessions of hard work, as he wrecked the middle-order by removing Virat Kohli (34), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (44) and Ravindra Jadeja (10) after dismissing Vijay in the morning. Left-arm spinner Xavier Doherty (3-131) wrapped up the tail.
 
Sachin Tendulkar (7) fell in the second over after lunch as he tried to play James Pattinson (2-8) down the leg but found an edge to Matthew Wade. The Australians made a strong appeal for a caught behind and an unsure Marias Erasmus after consulting the third umpire raised his finger. 
 
Dhoni and Kohli then joined forces to stabilise the middle-order with their 56-run stand. But Maxwell broke the partnership as Dhoni tried to clear mid-off only to find Doherty, who juggled to take the catch.
 
Jadeja followed soon, this time with Maxwell taking an excellent catch off his own bowling.

Kohli also gifted his wicket trying to charge Maxwell and found an inside edge to backward short leg, where Ed Cowan took a ripper diving to his left.
 
While Pujara and Vijay added 370 runs, the third highest stand against Australia, the remaining batsmen could add only 133.
 
The 370-run second-wicket stand between Pujara and Vijay was broken by debutant Maxwell. The off-spinner purchased some nice turn and bounce and Vijay offered a simple catch to backward short-leg. 
 
The partnership is now the third highest partnership against Australia. The 382-run stand for the second wicket between England's Len Hutton and Maurice Leyland at the The Oval 1938 remains on top while the 376-run stand for the fifth wicket between Rahul Dravid and V.V.S. Laxman at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata 2000-01 is second.
 
Pujara got to his double century in style, charging down to  Maxwell and flicked the ball through mid-on and mid-wicket for four. He punched the air and hugged Tendulkar as the stadium gave a standing ovation to the Rajkot boy.
 
But Pujara could not carry on and in the next over his attempt to hook James Pattinson found Doherty taking a brilliant diving catch at long leg.
