Bangalore were 16/2 post his fall.Bangalore’s South African recruit AB de Villiers too could not stay in the middle for long and fell in the seventh over of Shadab Jakati’s ball, with an LBW written against his initials in the scoreboard.

But their charge was cut short in the 18th over when the team total was 188. A S. Aravind ball got the better of Vijay when he was just five runs short of a century.Vijay hit hard towards the covers but skipper Daniel Vettori took a fine catch to send him back.

With the issue of bringing Prime Minister within the ambit of the Lokpal remaining a ticklish affair, Government is expected to soon call an all-party meeting to seek views across the political spectrum.This became clear on Saturday after a meeting of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi had with top party leaders favouring such parleys against the backdrop of widening differences between the government and the civil society representatives led by Anna Hazare on the issue.Grappling with the issue and other sensitive matters like Telangana, the Congress Core Group headed by Gandhi met on Saturday, the second meeting coming just after its two-hour long deliberations last night. Saturday’s meeting also discussed Telangana problem. The Hazare camp is pitching for inclusion of Prime Minister as also higher judiciary in the proposed Lokpal bill during meetings of the Joint Committee to draft the measure which will now be meeting on June 20 and 21.Government is prima facie opposed to the inclusion of Prime Minister within the ambit of Lokpal but was open to the idea of covering him once he demits office.HRD Minister Sibal on Saturday said, “within the government, we feel prima facie, the Prime Minister should not be covered (under the Lokpal). But at the same time we want to make sure that if he demits office, he should not be exonerated from prosecution.”- With PTI inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.advertisement
Kevin De Bruyne was hailed as easily the best player in the Premier League by a wounded Mark Hughes after his Stoke City side had been picked apart by the Belgian orchestrator in a marvellous Manchester City symphony on Saturday.De Bruyne did not score but he did everything else in a fabulous all-round performance that inspired the leaders to a thrilling 7-2 evisceration of Stoke at the Etihad Stadium.It was a display so magnificent that Hughes, a fine performer himself in his Manchester United heyday but not a man given to wild praise, was moved to suggest: “For me he is the best player in the Premier League by a country mile.”Hughes called De Bruyne’s quality throughout the match as “absolutely sensational” as the 26-year-old was the heartbeat of arguably the best team performance by any Premier League side this season.Can’t wait for my next ?? games! What a team performance… ??? pic.twitter.com/5QzwKdCNMj- Kevin De Bruyne (@DeBruyneKev) October 14, 2017As the purring over his display could be heard all around the Etihad, De Bruyne, who has been producing one masterclass after another there this season, tried to mute the rave reviews by reminding everyone it was not a one-man show.”We play in a flow at the moment – we are playing well. Not just me,” he shrugged.It is true that a host of City’s players are in tremendous form – Raheem Sterling scored his seventh goal of the season and Leroy Sane his sixth – as City became the first English top-flight side to score 29 in their first eight league games of the campaign since Everton in 1894-95.advertisementYet none of his team mates are quite operating on De Bruyne’s exalted level, as even the flying Gabriel Jesus, whose double took his tally to six for the season, seemed to accept.”We all feel lucky to have him in our team,” the young Brazilian said.With City now resembling the sort of brilliant, free-flowing creation that Pep Guardiola was brought in at great expense to deliver, even the Spanish manager accepted that at the centre of it all flitted a player who “is one of the best by far”.With two more assists to his name, De Bruyne has now helped set up 32 league goals since his City debut in September, 2015, more than any other player, and he is clearly the early pacesetter in the race for the season’s individual awards.

Kolkata: The 98th birth anniversary of Satyajit Ray was celebrated in the city on Thursday.Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee tweeted “Maharaja Tomare Selam… Fondly remembering Satyajit Ray, legendary filmmaker, on his birth anniversary.” At Mother’s Wax museum in New Town, the wax statue of Ray was garlanded on the occasion by the chairman of Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO) Debashis Sen. Orbits of Convergence: Ray’s Tagore, a unique programme by the Tollygunge Club, brought together the works of Rabindranath Tagore and Satyajit Ray. The event, conceptualised, scripted and directed by Subha Pal, with inputs from Subhashish Majumder, is an audio-visual presentation of Tagore’s works, which have been made into films by Satyajit Ray, along with the screening of a documentary on Tagore, made in 1961 on the birth centenary of Rabindranath. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataTagore was very close to the Ray family and had visited the Garpar house of the Rays when Sukumar, Ray’s father, fell ill and died prematurely. Tagore loved Ray because he lost his father at an early age. There will be play-readings too, followed by the recital of poetry and some songs which are reminiscent of both Tagore and Ray’s works. “This event is a tribute to mark the birth anniversary of two luminaries from Bengal — Rabindranath Tagore and Satyajit Ray. Since both their birthdays fall in the month of May, we decided to host a programme which focuses on how Ray’s films brought world-wide fame to Tagore’s works.

But Ray’s works captured beautifully the meaning inherent in Tagore’s works, which were lost in translation,” says Subha Pal, the director. Clippings from five films by Ray which included Teen Konya, Charulata, Ghare Baire, Postmaster and Monihara had been shown at the event. Barun Chanda, who acted in Ray’s Shimabaddha, spoke about Tagore’s interest in movies, during the latter part of his life. Biplab Das Gupta presented the play-reading while director Ashoke Vishwanathan enacted the characters from Ghare Baire and Monihara. Rohini and Debashish Ray Chaudhuri sang songs along with Apala Basu. The programme will also include songs from Ray’s films, as he used some of Tagore’s poems in his films to highlight a particular moment. “Ray’s love for music was much evident in movies like Gupi Gayen Bagha Bayen and Hirak Rajar Deshe and we will also include some songs from these movies,” Subha said. On his 98th Birth anniversary, Indian Museum ,ministry of Culture,is celebrating the day by organising an exhibition of photographs and Memorabilia at Pre-History Gallery, Indian Museum.
