Boeing, Tata Advanced Systems to co-produce aerostructures

ADVERTISEMENT
Aircraft manufacturer Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL), a part of the Tata Group, today signed a framework agreement to collaborate in aerospace and defence manufacturing and potential integrated systems development opportunities, including unmanned aerial vehicles.

At least 27 people, mainly elderly women, died and 34 others suffered injuries in a stampede during Pushkaralu, when thousands of people thronged a bathing ghat for a holy dip in the river Godavari, at Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh this morning.

 
27 killed in Rajahmundry stampede
At least 27 people, mainly elderly women, died and 34 others suffered injuries in a stampede during Pushkaralu, when thousands of people thronged a bathing ghat for a holy dip in the river Godavari, at Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh this morning.
 
District Collector H Arunkumar told NetIndian that the injured had been admitted to hospitals in Rajahmundry, where they were stated to be out of danger.
 
He said the deceased included 21 women, nearly all of them above the age of 60. One of them was aged 30 and another 12. 
 
One of the victims was from Jamshedpur and another from Bangalore, he said.
 
"The situation is now totally under control," he said, adding that the bodies of the victims had been sent to their villages after completion of post-mortem examination and other formalities.
 
According to him, the stampede occurred around 8.30 am when thousands of people gathered at the Kothagammam ghat in the middle of the town though there are other ghats in other locations.
 
The stampede occurred, despite all the precautions taken and the barricades erected, when the unsually huge crowds surged forward towards the ghat, ignoring efforts by the authorities to divert them to other ghats.
 
Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu and his family had taken a dip at the same spot earlier in the morning.
 
Additional police forces were rushed to the area to ensure order, sources said.
 
"It is regrettable that lives are lost in stampede at Rajahmundry Ghat. Request people not to panic. Situation brought under control," Mr Naidu said on micro-blogging site Twitter.
 
"I request to people to head to other Pushkar ghats to avoid overcrowding at  single ghat. I'm monitoring situation from control room," he said.
 
"Request people to follow queues lines & instructions. Pilgrims' safety is top priority for us. Will provide all possible assistance," he added.
 
The state government has announced an ex-gratia payment of Rs 10 lakh for the next-of-kin of those killed in the incident and an immediate assistance of Rs 25,000 for those injured.

President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi  condoled the loss of lives in the stampede.
 
"I am saddened to learn about the stampede at the Pushkarulu Ghat of Godavari River in Rajahmundry District of Andhra Pradesh, where a number of devotees have lost their lives and many others are injured. I understand relief and rescue operations are currently underway," Mr Mukherjee said in his message to Andhra Pradesh Governor E.S.L. Narasimhan.
 
"I call upon the State Government and other authorities to provide all possible aid to the bereaved families, who have lost their near and dear ones as well as medical assistance to the injured. 
 
"Please convey my heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased. I wish speedy recovery to the injured persons," he said.
 
"Deeply pained at the loss of lives due to stampede at Rajahmundry. My condolences to the families of the deceased and prayers with the injured," Mr Modi said.
 
"I spoke to CM N. Chandrababu Naidu and discussed the situation with him. The State Government is working to restore normalcy," he added.
 
The religious event is held once in 12 years when thousands of people from the region converge in the town to take a dip in the river. This year, it was an even more auspicious occasion, from the astronomical point of view, as it occurs only once in 144 years.

207 flight cadets, including 43 women, pass out from Air Force Academy

ADVERTISEMENT
As many as 207 flight cadets, including 43 women, passed out as Flying Officers to join the Indian Air Force (IAF) at a Combined Graduation Parade at Dindigul, near Hyderabad, today.
 
Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha was the reviewing officer at the parade.
 
He conferred the President’s Commission to the flight cadets who have successfully completed their basic and professional training at Air Force Academy, Air Force Station Hakimpet, Air Force Station Begumpet, Air Force Station Yelahanka and Air Force Administrative College (Coimbatore). 
 
The newly commissioned officers will join in their respective fields in Flying, Navigation and Ground duty branches. 
 
The Reviewing Officer was accorded a salute by the parade followed by an impressive march past. The highpoint of the parade was the ‘pipping ceremony’. The flight cadets were awarded their stripes by the Reviewing Officer, the Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Training Command and Commandant, Air Force Academy. They were then administered the oath by the Commandant of the Academy in the presence of the Chief Guest and other dignitaries. 
 
Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha gave away various awards to the flying officers who excelled in training. Flying Officer Himanshu Kanwar from the Flying Branch was awarded President’s Plaque and the Chief of the Air Staff Sword of Honour for standing first in Overall Merit in Pilot Course. Flying Officer Saurabh Sharma and Flying Officer Shivaank Rana were awarded President’s Plaque for being first in Overall Merit in Navigation and Ground Duty branch respectively. 
 
Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha complimented the Flying Officers for the exceptional standard of parade. Articulating India’s need and priorities in the emerging international scenario, he reiterated the important role of the Armed Forces. In this context IAF, as a reckonable aerospace power, would permeate the national security apparatus more intrinsically, given India’s significantly enhanced stature and responsibilities, he said.
 
He stated that, while there was an urgent need to leverage technologies and systems, it was also imperative that these were converted into ‘capabilities’ by people. 
 
ADVERTISEMENT
He stressed on the need for the IAF to aim for greater specialisation and tailored capabilities amongst its men and women, as it absorbs newer and more advanced technologies. 
 
Earlier, the Reviewing Officer was received at the venue by Air Marshal Ramesh Rai, Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Training Command and Air Marshal GP Singh, Commandant, Air Force Academy. 
 
The parade ended with the newly commissioned officers marching out from behind the fort wall, in slow march to the poignant notes of ‘Auld Lang Syne’ acknowledging the first salute given them by their immediate juniors. 
 
The large gathering of military and civil dignitaries along with the family members and friends of the graduating Flight Cadets were held spellbound throughout the parade. The parade was followed by an aerobatic display by the PC 7 MK II (the aircraft currently used in AFA to train pilots) and the Sarang Helicopter team display. 
 
The Air Force Academy is the premier training establishment of IAF.

Air India’s MRO facility at Hyderabad inaugurated

ADVERTISEMENT
Minister for Civil Aviation Ashok Gajapathi Raju Pusapati inaugurated Air India’s state-of-the-art facility for Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) at Rajiv Gandhi International Airport here today.
 
The facility has been developed by Air India Engineering Services Limited (AIESL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Air India. 
 
The facility will exclusively serve the Air India fleet and will provide full aircraft base maintenance service, line maintenance, engineering and technical support, component and full material support, aircraft engine services and technical training services on all major aircraft types.  
 
Mr H R Jagannath, CEO, Air India Engineering Services Ltd. (AIESL), said that Air India had a great potential in MRO facility. More support from the government could bring about more improvements in the country in terms of revenue generation and manpower development and utilization in the country as it was one of the biggest MRO in the region.
 
Mr Rohit Nandan, Chairman and Managing Director, Air India said “We are pursuing the ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Prime Minister of India and this MRO unit is a very strong platform in that direction. Air India has always been in the front whenever there has been a need by the country like the recent evacuations from Yemen and relief operations to Nepal and development of the MRO facility is also a very important field in supporting the development of engineering infrastructure in the nation."
 
"At one point of time it was difficult to construct the facility that has come up at Hyderabad as Air India also had financial difficulties but with the support and motivation from the government of India and the Ministry of Civil Aviation, today we are standing in the state-of-the-art facility and looking ahead to playing much bigger roles.”

Mr Gajapathi Raju said the government was doing everything possible in removing the hurdles in the way of Air India but things took time. He said the new facility would provide a better platform for Air India to compete at the international level.
 
Developed with an investment of Rs 79.20 crore, the unit will provide the capacity to service the world’s contemporary aircraft types. It can accommodate two narrow body aircraft at a time or one wide body aircraft.  The hangar covers an area of 9000 sq. metres and has a height of 24 metres. It features an open bay that is capable of providing MRO services for such next-generation, wide-body aircraft as the Boeing 787/ 777/ 747 and Airbus A320/321/319.
 
AIESL has received the mandatory DGCA certification to carry out maintenance, repair, overhaul and also testing of aircraft, engines and components for the Air India fleet. The MRO will service Air India’s present fleet of 125 aircraft which is likely to grow in the future.

Mumbai Indians finish second with massive 9-wicket win over Sunrisers

 
Mitchell McClenaghan and Lasith Malinga shone with the ball and openers Parthiv Patel and Lendl Simmons with the bat as Mumbai Indians outplayed Sunrisers Hyderabad by nine wickets to take the second spot on the table in the indian Premier League (IPL) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here tonight.
 
McClenaghan picked up three for 16 and Malinga two for 17 to skittle Sunrisers out for just 113 in their allotted 20 overs. Jagdeesha Suchith got two for 14 from his three overs. Harbhajan Singh and Kieron Pollard ended up with one each in what was the last league engagement of the IPL 2015 season.
 
In response, Mumbai Indians rattled up 114 for 1 in 13.5 overs to win with 37 balls to spare, with Patel slamming an unbeaten 51 and Simmons making a superb 48.
 
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had already sealed the top spot yesterday, with 18 points with nine wins and five losses from 14 matches. Mumbai Indians finished with 16 points with eight wins and six losses. The two teams will now play the first qualifier on May 19 to decide the first finalist.
 
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals have also qualified for the play-offs, finishing third and fourth, respectively. Both ended up with 16 points from their 14 matches. They will meet in the eliminator on May 20.
 
The winner of the eliminator will play the loser of the first qualifier in the second qualifier on May 22 to decide the second finalist. The final is slated for Sunday night at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
 
Defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab have failed to qualify.
 
Opting to bat first in what as a do-or-die encounter for both teams, Sunrisers began on a disastrous note, losing openers Shikhar Dhawan (1) and skipper David Warner (6) off successive deliveries with just seven on the board.
 
Eoin Morgan (9) left at 23 and then they lost Moises Henriques (11) and Naman Ojha off successive deliveries in the ninth over to be left struggling at 51 for five.
 
Lokesh Rahul (25), Karn Sharma (15), Ashish Reddy (17) and Dale Steyn (19) tried to stem the tide but could not make any major difference.
 
Chasing an easy 114 for a win, Mumbai Indians got off to a strong start as Patel and Simmons put on 106 for the first wicket to literally beat Sunrisers into submission.
 
ADVERTISEMENT
Patel's 51 not out came off 37 balls and included nine fours, while Simmons struck four fours and two sixes in his 44-ball 48.
 
When Simmons left in the 14th over, there was very little work left for Patel and skipper Rohit Sharma (7 not out) to do.
 
For Mumbai Indians, it has been a remarkable turnaround after starting out in the tournament with four straight losses. They won eight of their remaining ten matches, including five in a row, to storm into the top four.

RCB beat Sunrisers by six wickets in rain-shortened match

 
Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) moved up to second place on the table with a sx-wicket win over Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in a rain-curtailed match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here tonight.
 
Opting to bat first, Sunrisers made 135 for three wickets from their allotted 11 overs after rains delayed the start of the match.
 
More rains meant that the target for RCB was re-adjusted to 81 from six overs, using the Duckworth-Lewis (DL) method, and they made 83 for four with just one ball to spare.
 
RCB now have 15 points from seven wins, five losses and one no-result in 13 matches so far, with one match to go. The leaders, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have 16 points from eight wins and five losses, with one match left.
 
Defending champions are in third place, also with 15 points, and SRH in the fourth place with 14 points. Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals are in the fifth and sixth places, also with 14 points each. All of them have one match remaining.
 
Sunrisers lost opener Shikhar Dhawan (8) at 19 in the third over, but skipper David Warner (52 not out) and Moises Henriques (57) shored up the innings with a 103-run partnership for the second wicket.
 
Warner's 52 came off 32 balls and included five fours and a six, while Henriques took only 22 balls to make his 57 with the help of five fours and four sixes. 
 
For RCB, David Wiese took two for 20 and Mitchell Starc one for 26.
 
Asked to score 81 from six overs, RCB got off to an explosive start, with Chris Gayle (35) and skipper Virat Kohli (44 not out) adding 43 in just 2.3 over for the first wicket. Gayle faced just 10 balls and struck four fours and three sixes for his 35.
 
Henriques claimed Gayle and A B de Villiers (0) off successive deliveries in the third over and RCB also lost Mandeep Singh (1)  and Dinesh Karthk (2) cheaply. But the fact that Kohli was in good form meant that these losses did not matter today. His unbeaten 44 was made off 19 balls with the help of three fours and three sixes.
 
Rain has followed RCB at several venues in this season of IPL. They were denied the chance to defend 200 against Rajasthan royals and two of their matches were shortened to 10-over affairs.
 
ADVERTISEMENT
But they ended up on the winning side today, thanks to Gayle and Kohli, though it literally went to the wires. In the end, they needed 12 off four balls and Kohli achieved it with two beautiful fours off yorkers from Bhuvneshwar Kumar through the offside and then a winning six. Warner did manage to catch the ball at long-off, but had stepped on the boundary line in the process.

Rahul Gandhi goes on padayatra in Telangana
Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi today kept up his attack on the Narendra Modi government at the Centre on the agrarian crisis and the controversial Land Acquisition Bill as he marched on a 15-km "padayatra" through five villages in Adilabad district of Telangana to meet farmers in distress and their families.
 
Mr Gandhi, who had earlier travelled to Punjab and Maharashtra to meet farmers suffering due to the agrarian crisis, began his march from Koritikal village this morning and walked through several villages where cases of farmer suicides had been reported in recent times, ignoring the searing heat.
 
Later, addressing farmers at a public meeting in Adilabad, he said Prime Minister Modi and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao, whom he dubbed a "mini-Modi", had done nothing for farmers and had gone abck on their poll promises to the agrarian community.
 
"When the unseasonal rains came and when there was hailstorm, Modi did nothing. The 'mini Modi' in Telangana also did nothing," he said, without naming Mr Rao.
 
He said these leaders had made a lot of promises to farmers during the election campaign but forgot about them after getting elected.
 
He said that when the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) was in power at the Centre it had always rushed to the aid of farmers at the slightest sign of distress. He mentioned the special packages given for the drought-hit areas of Maharashtra and for Bundelkhand and also the regular hikes in minimum support prices (MSP) given to farmers for their crops.
 
He also referred to waiver of Rs 70,000 crore in farm loans given by the UPA government. He said farmers had been given a total of Rs 8 lakh crore as agriculture loans during the UPA's tenure, benefitting 6.5 crore farmers. Agricultura credit had gone up seven times, he said.

He also dwelt at length on the Land Acquisition Bill brought by the Modi government, which the Congress has been opposing. He told the meeting about the provisions for social impact assessment and consent in the law enacted by the UPA government in 2013. 
 
Mr Gandhi said the UPA had brought the law to ensure that farmers and their families benefited from the increase in prices of their land.
 
"In our law your permission had to be taken before acquiring your land. If after five years the project did not come up, then the land was to be returned to you. We wrote in the law, that if land is acquired, then there should be a social audit to assess the impact on all those affected," he said.
 
"When the NDA came to power, they removed all these three clauses," he said, going on to say that this was being done to benefit a few crony capitalists.
 
He also said that this was being done at a time when the Centre, the state governments and special economic zones had vast tracts of land lying unutilised.

IPL: Kevin Pietersen to join SunRisers Hyderabad squad

ADVERTISEMENT
Indian Premier League (IPL) franchisee Sunrisers Hyderabad today said that Kevin Pietersen, who does not feature in England's plans for the home summer due to a "massive issue of trust", would joinn the team early in the evening of May 15 in Hyderabad.
 
The star South African-born batsman was bought by SunRisers in this year’s auction but was allowed to return home to England to play county cricket at his request.  
 
He will return to India to provide additional firepower to the Orange Army’s top order as it bids to seal a top-four berth. He will be available for selection for SunRisers Hyderabad’s last home game against Mumbai Indians on Sunday, a press release from the team said.
 
SunRisers Hyderabad are currently placed third on the table, with 14 points and have won four of their last five matches.
 
"Pietersen himself is in fine form, having scored a triple-century for county side Surrey only days ago. His return will strengthen SunRisers Hyderabad’s already formidable batting line-up led by captain David Warner, currently the leading run-scorer in the IPL," the release said.
 
“Kevin Pietersen will be joining us on the 15th of May in India. SRH picked Kevin at this year’s auction and he will be available to take part in the remainder of our campaign this season,” said K. Shanmugam, CEO, SunRisers Hyderabad.   
 
"It is great news that KP will be joining us earlier than planned. To add a world-class batsman to our squad at the business end of the tournament is a huge bonus, we look forward to welcoming him to our squad," said Tom Moody, the team's head coach.
 
Pietersen, or KP as he is known, made his IPL debut in 2009 and has played 32 games so far, scoring 928 runs at a strike rate of 136.07.

Sunrisers survive Miller blitz to beat KXIP by five runs

 
Things not clicking this year: David Miller
Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) survived a late blitz by David Miller, who slammed an unbeaten 89 off just 44 balls, to beat Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by five runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium here tonight.
 
Millier, coming in at number five, hit two fours and nine sixes in his breathtaking knock, and very nearly pulled it off for KXIP, who have been languishing at the bottom of the eight-team league for most of the current edition of the tournament.
 
He hit two sixes and a four off the first four balls of pace bowler Ishant Sharma's last over, which meant that KXIP needed twelve from the last two balls. He missed the fifth ball, but hit the last one again out of the ground for another six.
 
Sunrisers owed their victory once again to skipper David Warner, who has been in great form this season. Opening the innings, he made 81 off 52 balls with the help of six fours and five sixes to help his side post a challenging 185 for five from their 20 overs. 
 
In response, KXIP ended up with 180 for seven from their allotted overs to register their tenth loss in 12 outings.
 
SRH, on the other hand, moved back into the top four, placed fourth with seven wins and five losses from their 12 matches so far.
 
Warner opted to bat first after winning the toss and gave SRH a good start, putting on 56 for the first wicket with Shikhar Dhawan (24) in 6.1 overs. He built on this further, adding 65 for the second wicket with Moises Henriques (28).
 
Of the other batsmen, Eoin Morgan contributed 17 while Lokesh Rahul remained unbeaten with 17.
 
For KXIP, Beuran Hendricks took two for 40, while Gurkeerat Singh and Glenn Maxwell picked up one each.
 
Chasing 186 for a win, KXIP began well, with openers Murali Vijay (24) and Manan Vohra (20) puting on 42 for the first wicket. But then they lost the wickets of the two openers as well as Maxwell (11), Wridhiman Saha (5), skipper George Bailey (6) and Gurkeerat Singh (3) to be reduced to 99 for six by the start of the 15th over. At that stage, they still needed 87 for a win from 35 balls.
 
ADVERTISEMENT
Miller and Axar Patel (15) took up the challenge as they added 59 for the seventh wicket off 29 balls. Patel fell off the last ball of the 19th over and KXIP were left with the task of getting 28 from the last six balls. That Miller very nearly got them would provide an idea of how completely he was in command, as well as underline the fact that the KXIP middle order had not quite played its part earlier.
 
Henriques picked up three for 16 from his four overs, while left-arm spinner Bipul Sharma got two for 13 from two overs. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Trent Boult took one apiece.
 
During his innings today, Warner became the first batsmen in this season of IPL to cross the 500-run mark. He also became the second batsmen, after Dhawan, to cross the 1000-run mark for Sunrisers.

17-year-old dies of injuries in "friendly" fist fight in Hyderabad

 
Youth dies during friendly fist fight in Hyderabad
 
 
A Class 12 student died of injuries suffered during a "friendly" fist fight with another youth at Mirpet here on May 3 after their friends placed bets on them, police said.
 
The incident, which was recorded by one of the other youths on his mobile phone, turned tragic when the student, identifid as Nabeel Ahmed, collapsed suddenly after being punched repeatedly on his temple, chest and abdomen.
 
Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) V Satyanarayana told journalists that the friends rushed Nabeel to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.
 
He said that the boys then managed to convince his mother that Nabeel had died in a motorcycle accident.
 
Nabeel's father, who works in the Gulf, rushed home and felt something was wrong. He talked to his son's friends and they gave him conflicting versions of what had happened.
 
Following this, the father of the boy filed a complaint with the police, which has registered a case of suspicious death.
 
The police have recovered the video recording of the incident from the mobile phones of one of the youths present on the scene and are now investigating the matter further.
 
The body of the boy will be exhumed and an autopsy conducted, sources said, adding that the case could be converted to one of murder after the findings of the post-mortem examination.

Sunrisers move into last four with six-run win over Delhi Daredevils

 
Moises Henriques slammed an unbeaten 74 to help Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) beat a spirited Delhi Daredevils (DD) by six runs and move into the top four of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh International Stadium here tonight.
 
A fiery 63 not out by Kedar Jadhav -- his second half-century in the IPL-- and a feisty 50 by opener Quinton de Kock brought DD to within striking distance of the target, and a feisty 50 earlier by Q but they could not sustain the momentum in the end.
 
Opting to bat first, SRH posted a respectable 163 for four from their allotted 20 overs and then managed to restrict the Daredevils to 157 for four.
 
SRH got off to a reasonably good start as openers Shikhar Dhawan (13) and skipper David Warne (17) put on 29 for the first wicket in 3.5 overs. But they lost both openers within the space of three balls to be quickly reduced to 31 for two before Henriques and Eoin Morgan (22) added 33 for the third wicket.
 
Henriques and Karn Sharma (16) added 35 for the fourth wicket to further stabilise the innings. After that, Henriques and Ravi Bopara (17 not out) added 64 in their unfinished partnership for the fifth wicket to enable SRH to post a challenging target for their rivals.
 
Henriques' 74 not out came off 46 deliveries and included one four and five sixes.
 
For the Daredevils, Nathan Coulter-Nile took two for 25, while Zaheer Khan and Jayant Yadav picked up one apiece.
 
Chasing 164 for a win, Delhi lost opener Shreyas Iyer (0) in the third over with the score at 13 but de Kock and skipper Jean Paul Duminy (12) stabilised the innings with a 47-run stand for the second wicket.
 
But then they were in trouble as they lost de Kock, Yuvraj Singh (2) and Duminy in quick succession to be reduced to 66 for four. de Kock's 50 came off 31 balls and included nine fours and a six.
 
That brought Jadhav and Saurabh Tiwary (26 not out) together and they added 91 in their unbroken partnership for the fifth wicket and brought their side pretty close to a win, but fell short by six runs in the end.

Sunrisers have to thank leg-spinner Karn Sharma, who picked up two for 12 from three overs, and pace bowlers Ishant Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who kept the flow of runs in check in the last three overs -- when the Daredevils were still on course -- for their narrow win.
 
Jadav struck eight fours and two sixes in his 34-ball essay, while Tiwary hit two fours and a six during his 25-ball stay at the wicket.
 
With today's win, SRH moved up to the fourth spot on the table, displacing Mumbai Indians, with six wins and five losses from their 11 matches so far. Delhi Daredevils, who have only four wins from 12 outings thus far, are placed seventh in the eight-team league. Along with eighth-placed Kings XI Punjab, they now have no chance of making it to the last four for the play-offs.

Eoin Morgan slammed 63 off 28 balls to help Sunrisers Hyderabad edge out Rajasthan Royals by seven runs in a high-scoring match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Brabourne Stadium here this evening.
 
Asked to bat first, Sunrisers posted a challenging 201 for four in their allotted 20 overs, powered by Morgan's brilliant knock as well as a superb 54 by opener Shikhar Dhawan.
 
Chasing 202 for a win, the Royals came pretty close at 194 for seven, riding on opener Steve Smith's 68 and unbeaten 34 by Chris Morris, batting at number nine. James Faulkner made 30 and Sanju Samson contributed 21.

Dhawan fell at 127 in the 15th over. His 54 came off 35 balls and included six fours and two sixes.
 
Morgan and Ravi Bopara (17 not out) added 53 for the fourth wicket to consolidate the innings further. Morgan's 63 came off just 28 balls and was studded with four fours and five sixes.
 
Shane Watson took two wickets for 36, while Faulkner and Pravin Tambe picked up one apiece.
 
The Royals got off to a dismal start, losing Ajinkya Rahane (8) off the last ba of the fist over, caught behind by Naman Ojha off Bhuvaneshwar Kumar after striking him for two fours. 
 
Watson (12), Karun Nair (4) and Deepak Hooda (8) did not stay very long as the Royals were struggling at 77 for four after 11 overs.

KKR outclass Sunrisers Hyderabad by 35 runs

ADVERTISEMENT
Riding on a superb performance by their bowlers and steady batting by their top order batsmen, defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) outclassed Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) by 35 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the EdenGardens here tonight.
 
Put in to bat first, KKR made a respectable 167 for seven from their 20 overs and then restricted SRH to 132 for nine in their allotted overs.
 
Skipper Gautam Gambhir (31) and Robin Uthappa (30) gave the hosts a good start, putting on 57 for the first wicket. After the departure of Gambhir, Gambhir, who struck five fours in 23-ball essay, Uthappa and Manish Pandey (33) took the score to 81 before the former left. Uthappa hit three fours in his 27-ball knock.
 
Andre Russell (1) faced only three balls before he left at 86. Pandey, who was the topscorer at 33, made off 26 balls with one four and two sixes, made his exit at 105, followed by Ryan ten Doeschate at 111.
 
Yusuf Pathan helped to shore up the innings with an unbeaten 30 and take them to a respectable total of 167 for seven.
 
For SRH, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar took two for 42 and Karn Sharma two for 29.
 
Chasing 168 for a win, SRH ran into Umesh Yadav, who removed skipper David Warner (4) off the third ball of the innings and Naman Ojha, who departed three balls later.
 
Shikhar Dhawan (15), the other opener, held on for some time but he, too, made his exit at 29.
 
Moises Henriques, who topscored in the match with a fighting 41, made off 33 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes, and Eoin Morgan (5) took the total to 55.
 
But then on, it was a steady procession back to the pavilion, and soon SRH were tottering at 69 for six. Only Karn Sharma, coming in at number eight, offered some resistance as he made 32 off 20 balls with the help of three sixes.
 
Towards the end, Praveen Kumar made 12 and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar remained unbeaten on 11, but the required runs were beyond their reach.
 
ADVERTISEMENT
Yadav, who was chosen Man of the Match, took two for 34 and Brad Hogg picked up two for 17. Yadav's twin-strike in the first over so unsettled SRH that they never quite recovered, and Hogg and Piyush Chawla kept the visitors under check in the middle overs.
 
KKR are now placed third on the table with five wins, four losses and one no-result from 10 matches, while SRH are in the sixth place in the eight-team league with four wins and five losses in their nine matches thus far.

Eoin Morgan made an unbeaten 32 while Naman Ojha contributed a useful 20 to help boost the SRH tally.

Morgan, who hit one four and a six, kept the scoreboard moving in the company of Ojha, Ashish Reddy (6), Hanuma Vihari (8), and Karn Sharma (4) in the later stages to help Sunrisers post an imposing total.
 
For CSK, Dwayne Bavo was the most successful bowler with three for 25 from his four overs.
 
CSK suffered an early setback in the chase, losing Brendon McCullum (12) in the second over at 14. Dwayne Smith (21) and Suresh Raina (23) took the score to 48 before the former left in the sixth over. Raina did not last very long, making his exit in the eighth over with the total at 68.

Faf du Plessis, who topscored with 33, stablised the innings with a 46-run stand for the fourth wicket in the company of skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (20). du Plessis' dismissal in the 13th over proved to be decisive. Dhoni's exit off the next ball only made matters worse for the visitors.
 
Pawan Negi made 15 and Bravo (25 not out) and Ravindra Jadeja (14 not out) were then involved in an unbroken 29-run partnership for the seventh wicket, but their efforts were not enough to bridge the gap.

Boult scalps 3/19, Warner hits 58 to help Sunrisers beat KXIP by 20 runs

 
Trent Boult took three for 19 and skipper David Warner hit a half-century to help Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) defend a total of 150 for six and beat Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) by 20 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here tonight.
 
Asked to bat first, Sunrisers' Warner made 58 and Moises Henriques 30 as they posted a modest total. Naman Ojha contributed 28 and Ashish Reddy remained unbeaten on 22 towars the end.
 
For KXIP, Mitchell Johnson and Axar Patel took two wickets apiece.
 
Chasing 151 for a win, KXIP's top order failed to get going and they were soon struggling at 72 for five.
 
Wridhiman Saha, who topscored for them with 42, and Patel (17) tried to fight back with a 44-run partnership for the sixth wicket, but that was clearly not enough. Patel and Saha left in the 18th over and the batsmen who followed could add only seven more runs in the remaining two overs.
 
Apart from Boult, Bhuvneshwar Kumar took two for 23, while Praveen Kumar, Karan Sharma and Henriques took one each.
 
SRH are now placed fifth on the table with three wins from seven matches, while KXIP have been pushed to the bottom of the eight-team league with just two wins from their seven outings so far. KXIP have lost all their four home matches till now.
 
Sunrisers began on a dismal note, losing opener Shikhar Dhawan (1) in the second over with just 10 on the board.
 
Warner and Hanuma Vihari (9) took the score to 56 before the latter left in the sixth over. Twenty runs later, Warner also made his exit in the 10th over. Henriques and Ojha added 45 for the fouth wicket. After Ojha's departure in the 17th over, there was a steady procession back to the pavilion, though Reddy managed to boost their total with his unbeaten 22 off just eight balls that included a four and two sixes.
 
Warners's well-made and timely 58 came off 41 balls and included ten fours and a six.

KXIP began their chase on a slow note and were in all kinds of trouble before soon. They lost opener Manan Vohra (5) with the total at 10 in the third over and Shaun Marsh (1) in the next over.
 
Opener Murali Vijay (12) and captain George Bailey (22) tried to put the team back on track with a 32-run partnership for the third wicket before the latter fell in the eighth over In the next, at 53, Vijay also made his exit. David Miller (15) and Saha tried to keep their heads above water as they added 19 for the fifth wicket and then Saha and Patel came together to take the side to 116.
 
After Saha and Patel left, there was little that the remaining batting could do for SRH.

Mumbai Indians beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 20 runs for second win

 
Mumbai Indians (MI) beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 20 runs to register their second win in the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium here this evening.
 
Opting to bat first, MI found themselves restricted to just 157 for eight from their 20 overs, thanks to some good work by pace bowlers Bhuvaneshwar Kumar (3/26), Praveen Kumar (2/35) and Dale Steyn (2/38).
 
Their innings was propped up by a half-century by opener Lendl Simmons (51) and 33 by Kieron Pollard. Skipper Rohit Sharma contributed an unbeaten 24. Simmons, who hit six fours and a six in his 51, put on 42 for the first wicket with Parthiv Patel (17).
 
Simmons and Sharma added 51 runs for the third wicket to take their side to 100.
 
Chasing 158 for a win, Sunrisers began well with openers Shikhar Dhawan (42) and skipper David Warner (9) putting on 45 for the first wicket in five overs.
 
But then they suffered some quick reverses, and were struggling at 68 for three in the ninth over. Lokesh Rahul (25) and Ravi Bopara (23) added 36 for the fourth wicket, but once the two left to make it 126 for five in the 18th over, the fight had gone out of the visitors. They ended up with 137 for eight.

Lasith Malinga took four for 23 from his four overs, including three in the penultimate over, and Mitchell McClenaghan got three for 20 to help the hosts to what was only their second win in seven outings.
 
The domination of the Mumbai bowlers can be gauged from the fact that they did not concede a single boundary between the seventh and 12th overs, giving away only 29 runs.
 
Mumbai Indians, however, continue to languish at the bottom of the eight-team league, while Sunrisers are in the fifth position with two wins from six matches so far.

Sunrisers beat KKR by 16 runs in rain-truncated match

Sunrisers Hyderabad (SH) got the better of defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 16 runs in a rain-truncated match in the Indian Premier League (IPL) here this evening.
 
Asked to bat first, the home team made 176 for four from their 20 overs, thanks in the main to skipper David Warner, who made 91 off 55 balls with nine fours and four sixes.
 
He and Shikhar Dhawan (54) put on 130 for the opening wicket, but the rest of the batsmen failed to build on that, adding just 46 runs in the 5.2 overs remaining after Warner's departure.
 
Set a target of 118 in 12 overs, using the Duckworth-Lewis method, KKR could make only 101 for four, hemmed in as they were by some superb bowling by Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Praveen Kumar, who used yorkers to good effect.
 
Opener Robin Uthappa scored 34, Manish Pandey made an unbeaten 33 and Andre Russel contributed 19 but captain Gautam Gambhir (4) and Yusuf Pathan (6) failed to get going today.
 
KKR did appear to be in command during the early stages of the chase, managing to reach 80 in 8.4 overs, but the Kumars then came up with their stuff to swing the game the other way.
 
The defending champions now have three wins from five matches so far in the tournament while Sunrisers have two wins from their five outings.

Rajasthan Royals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by six wickets in close contest

Set a target of 128 for a win, Rajasthan Royals got off to a comfortable start with openers Ajinkya Rahane (62) and Sanju Samson (26) putting on 64 for the first wicet at the rate of a run a ball. Samson left in the 11th over and captain Steve Smith (13) in the 14th over, when the total was 84.
 
Karun Nair (1) made his exit a little later, at 91 in the 15th over and when Rahane left at 118, the visitors needed 10 runs from eight balls.
 
But Stuart Binny (16 not out) and James Faulkner (6 not out) ensured there were no further hiccups, though it was only a last-ball four by Faulkner off Praveen Kumar that took them to victory.
