Watch: Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav play cricket in their hotel corridor ahead of 2nd ODI vs West Indies

first_img India Today Web Desk Port of SpainAugust 11, 2019UPDATED: August 11, 2019 11:36 IST Rishabh Pant Instagram videoHIGHLIGHTSIndia will be playing West Indies in the 2nd ODI in Port of Spain on SundayThe first match was washed out after just 13 overs bowled by IndiaIndia had swept the T20I series 3-0 against West IndiesIndia wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav took cricket to a whole new level as they were seen playing in their hotel corridor ahead of the second ODI against West Indies on Sunday.The duo are leaving no stone unturned in their preparations for the second match after the first ODI was washed out with just 13 overs being bowled in the match.Kuldeep bowled to Pant, who had his wicketkeeping gloves on. The left-arm leg-spinner was getting some sharp turn despite bowling on a floor which was covered with a mat in their hotel corridor.”Where ? When ? What ? Who ? …. No sorry … I only know the “WHY”, Pant titled the video.After rain playing spoilsport in the first ODI of the three-game series in Guyana, India and West Indies have moved to the Queen’s Park Oval for the second game and both teams will be looking to start on the attack after a washed out opening game. Interestingly, Chris Gayle has been ignored for the Test series, so this game and the last one at the same venue could be the last couple of times that one sees the legend take the field on the international stage.For India, it will be about starting afresh after a disappointing loss in the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup. The batting looks solid at the top with Shikhar Dhawan coming back to join Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli will once again get to play freely at the no.3 position as he doesn’t need to worry about building the innings as he had to during the showpiece event in England.advertisementThe middle-order kind of picks itself as the team didn’t get to bat in the opening game. So while Shreyas Iyer should get another go after having made the XI in the first game, Rishabh Pant definitely will be playing the role of the finisher unless there is a top-order collapse. Kedar Jadhav is also set to get a game over Manish Pandey as was the case in the opening tie.Also Read | Chris Gayle 300: Can India play party poopers in West Indies star’s landmark ODI?Also Read | India vs West Indies 2nd ODI: Dream 11 Prediction, captain and vice-captainAlso Read | India head coach interview likely after Independence DayFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Bombardier to begin Morocco aerospace production January in leased premises

MONTREAL – Bombardier says its production in Morocco will take flight in January, but not in the manufacturing facility it is building in Casablanca.Instead, the Montreal-based aircraft maker will begin its North African operations in a temporary facility, spokeswoman Haley Dunne said.Bombardier Aerospace president Guy Hachey recently visited Morocco and met with the king.The company, which bought land earlier this year near the airport in a zone that offers five years of financial incentives, including no taxes, plans to invest about US$200 million in equipment, buildings and start-up costs over several years.Dunne said details are still being finalized regarding the type of work that will be done and number of employees at the manufacturing facility that will be built in phases.The new plant is expected to complement Bombardier’s existing manufacturing sites and will initially include sub-assembly of simple structures.The company (TSX:BBD.B) has said it will begin production next year.“The idea of looking into using a temporary facility is so that we can maintain our schedule,” Dunne said.Bombardier is joining other aerospace manufacturers in setting up shop in Morocco, which has established an aerospace training program and offers many incentives to attract companies.The company will pay no taxes for five years, 8.75 per cent for another 20 years and 17.5 per cent thereafter.By the end of 2020, employment at the Moroccan facility is expected to reach about 850.Meanwhile, Bombardier Transportation announced Wednesday a US$158-million follow-on order from Israel Railways for 72 double-deck passenger coaches.The order is part of an agreement signed in 2010 when 150 coaches were ordered. The new coaches will be delivered over a year starting in early 2014.Israel Railways is planning to double the size of its double-deck fleet within three years.Bombardier manufactures and tests the coaches at its Gorlitz plant in Germany before they are completed in Israel by its partner Matar.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, its shares closed unchanged at $3.64 in Wednesday trading.

Utility vehicles were honoured separately for the first time, with the Pacifica minivan from Fiat Chrysler snagging that award.The honours were announced Monday morning at Detroit’s Cobo Center as the North American International Auto Show’s press preview days kick into high gear.The Bolt beat out the Genesis G90 and Volvo S90 for the car award. The electric car from Chevrolet went on sale late last year. It gets more than 200 miles per battery charge, which is more than the average American drives in a day. The Bolt also sells for around $30,000 when a federal tax credit is included. Electric vehicles have failed to catch on with most American consumers, but General Motors hopes the improved range and price help shift opinions.Mark Reuss, GM’s head of global product development, described the Bolt as a “moon shot.”“We didn’t have all the answers when we started the program — in terms of how far we were going to get range-wise, how light are we going to get the car and … sell price,” he said. “We hit on all cylinders on this, so to speak, even though there’s not any in the car.”The Ridgeline scored the truck award over Ford F-Series Super Duty and the Nissan Titan. Pacifica got the nod for the utility award over the Jaguar F-Pace and Mazda X-9.About 60 automotive journalists serve as judges for North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year awards. Eligible vehicles must be new or substantially changed.Organizers accept no advertising, though automakers try to capitalize on the marketing value of the awards, in their 24th year.The awards program launched in 1993, and patterned itself after the European Car of the Year. Organizers accept no advertising, though carmakers try to capitalize on the marketing value of the honours. read more
