It’s different conditions, different format. It’s learning for us to sit back and think of how to do better when playing on such good batting wickets,” Rahul said at the post-match press conference after India lost the second ODI by 51 runs.“In white-ball cricket, it is vital to get wickets regularly, then only you can keep the run-rate under check…We have to find (our) mantra to get wickets and the batting unit has to think about how to stretch the 30-40-run partnerships,” he assessed.Rahul said Australian bowlers could do well because of the familiarity with the conditions.“We did not adapt quick enough. it’s a learning curve for the bowling group to adapt quicker.”Asked if it’s just a bad phase for Bumrah, who struggled even in New Zealand earlier this year, Rahul said the speedster will come back strongly.“We all know Jasprit is very fiery and competitive on the field. He means a lot to this set up, we know the value of Jasprit. It’s about time that a champion player comes back and delivers and gets wickets for us.India tour of Australia 2020, India vs Australia Schedule, India vs Australia 2020 Full Squad“In New Zealand and Australia, the wickets are too good to bat, you will see that bowlers will not get wickets, that’s acceptable.”The team has already the lost the series but Rahul said it has not affected the dressing room morale.“The mood in the camp is still very positive, Sometimes, as a team you can learn to accept that the opposition played better cricket. It’s home conditions for them. Quite honestly, we played 50-over cricket after a long, long time.“We are doing lot of things right, we just need to learn how to bowl better on such beautiful batting wickets. Not a lot that we have done wrong, we need to get better with skills and execution,” he said.Both the sides have dropped a number of catches and there have been several instances of poor fielding. Rahul said it could be because the game is being played before noisy crowds after a long time.Fans have returned to the stadium for the first time, in the ongoing series, after being totally barred eight months ago because of the global COVID-19 threat.“It happens. I stay behind the wickets but I can tell you by my experience that when you play before crowd after a long time, it is slightly difficult to pick balls and it was quite windy too.”Australia opener David Warner suffered an injury during Sunday’s game and Rahul wished that he does not figure in the remaining matches of the tour. The opener has struck back-to-back half centuries so far.“It will be nice if he gets injured for a long time. I would not wish that for any player but he is their main batsman, it will be good for our team,” he said.

Online greetings card firm Moonpig (LSE:MOON) has enjoyed a great start to its time as a listed company. Since arriving on the market earlier this month at 350p, the shares have soared 34%.As someone who already uses its services, I should be bullish on this new-stock-on-the-block, right? Not exactly.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Why are Moonpig shares flying?Don’t get me wrong. On a fundamental level, Moonpig appears very attractive. Not having a high street estate to maintain (and only 400 or so employees to pay) allows the company to generate huge margins. Returns on capital employed — a metric favoured by UK star fund manager Terry Smith — are also seriously good. The fact that the company operates in both the UK and the Netherlands gives earnings some geographical diversification too. On top of this, business is booming. Last week, Moonpig reported that the huge demand it experienced over its first half had continued into Q3. In fact, the £1.6bn cap had its “strongest ever trading week” ahead of Valentine’s Day. Assuming it can continue to attract shoppers to its site, management expects full-year revenue will be “approximately double” the £173m achieved in FY20. I don’t think we should be surprised. The ability to buy a card online and have it posted directly to the recipient is clearly very useful at a time when shops on the high street can’t open. Nevertheless, there are a few reasons why I’m not sure recent momentum in Moonpig’s shares will continue in the near term.What could go wrong?Chief among these is the lifting of coronavirus restrictions. Although dashing to purchase a card might not be a priority for everyone, any reason to stop looking at our screens and leave the house may prove detrimental to Moonpig. Interestingly, the company has already hinted that the number of purchases and value of orders made by its shoppers will likely “moderate” later this year. Will traders consider banking profits in advance of this happening? I think it’s possible.A more general concern for me is that the barriers to entry in Moonpig’s industry appear low and that its outsize profits could attract even more competition in time. Is there anything about Moonpig’s business plan that will set it apart from rivals when this happens? Aside from an established brand, I’m not sure there is.Another concern I have is whether Moonpig will succeed in getting customers to add more things to their online baskets than just cards after lockdown has ended. This is something I’ve never been tempted to do. If I send flowers, I contact a florist. Champagne or chocolates? There’s more selection at a supermarket. That said, others may feel differently and a one-stop-shop approach could appeal to many. I feel it’s too early to know, however.Sky-high valuationFinally, there’s the valuation. A forecast price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 34 feels pretty rich for any greetings card seller, regardless of its online-only status and how it scores on quality metrics. Online shopping habits are here to stay, of course. But will demand for sending physical cards via an online seller rocket in the future? We just don’t know. Moonpig shares present as an interesting investment but it’s not one I’m desperate for. I see better UK growth opportunities elsewhere in the market.
Nathan HinesMax Evans Simon Webster evading the grips of an All BlackPrior to his career being plagued with injury, Rugby World caught up with Simon to discuss practical jokes, Buzz Lightyear, screaming like a girl and a common case of mistaken identity. RUGBY WORLD: What’s the funniest thing you’ve ever seen on the pitch?SIMON WEBSTER: One of our props, Joel Brannigan, once got up off the floor, saw a fight going on about ten metres away and thought he should get involved. So he punched the nearest guy, their centre who’d run 20 metres to break up the fight. It was just the sight of him getting up off the floor and punching someone. I watched that backwards and forwards on video about 50 times the next morning and came pretty close to wetting myself.RW: What about practical jokes?SW: Craig Joiner once did this magazine feature at his house. The picture they used on the cover was him in the bath, so we scanned this picture loads of times, made up some posters and stuck them to lamp-posts on his street. He actually got propositioned by his gay neighbour!RW: Have you ever been mistaken for somebody else?SW: Dougie Hall. He wears a scrum cap similar to mine and sometimes in video analysis they say, ‘Webbo, you shouldn’t be doing that’. But it isn’t me. It never works to my advantage because he never does anything that good!RW: What do you have to do as an initiation after your Scotland debut?SW: We have to sing a song on the bus, and it’s been extended now to your first try, first Six Nations game, first tour and so on. I’ve had to sing four or five times – Johnny B. Good, a bit of Bon Jovi and this rap thing – but I’m rubbish. Kelly Brown sang Chocolate Salty Balls, from South Park, on his debut and it was awesome, phenomenal. He also does the Baywatch theme tune really well. He’s a really good singer – after the last autumn game he just got up and sang.Animation, Nicknames and Phobias…RW: If a movie was made of your life, who would play you?SW: My girlfriend, Chrystal, says Mel Gibson, which is a bit strange. I really like Buzz Lightyear, but I don’t know if I could have a cartoon, although that would probably suit me better.RW: Would you want him in rugby kit?SW: No, I’d keep the astronaut suit – the range of sub-plots could then be wider!RW: What’s your catchphrase?SW: I don’t really have one, but I do try to promote my nickname: Nitro. This all started when Mike Blair called himself Blade, saying when he was younger he used to cut through defences like a blade. Even Frank Hadden calls him Blade. Simon Taylor then called himself Apollo – I don’t know why and nobody calls him it – so I decided to try Nitro. It’s not really caught on though.RW: What three things would you save if your house was burning down?SW: My girlfriend. My motorbike so I could go somewhere. It’s a Mini Moto so you’re not supposed to drive it on the road but the police might let me off if my house was burning down! And my thermos flask because it might be cold. RW: Would you have time to fill it up?SW: It depends which room was on fire.RW: What are your phobias?SW: Spiders. I lived with just my mum and sister for a few years. They used to scream when they saw one. Now I do the same. Chrystal has to hoover them up!RW: Breasts, bums or legs?SW: Bum and legs. I like Cameron Diaz, but Cameron Diaz in The Mask – she’s getting a little old now.RW: If you could have one superpower what would it be?SW: Can I only have one power or could I be Superman with lots of powers?RW: Just one power.SW: To fly. No, strength. No, the speed of Superman – then I’d be able to fly too.Check out his profile for ScotlandA cheeky try…Learn more about Simon’s teammates at Scotland… John Barclay LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Edinburgh Rugby
LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight Man with a plan: Stuart Lancaster has picked what he feels is a squad to win the World Cup Stuart Lancaster has announced a 50-man training squad in advance of the Rugby World Cup where the conversation was dominated with who was in rather than who was out Wings: Chris Ashton, Jonny May, Jack Nowell, Anthony Watson, Marland YardeCentres: Brad Barritt, Sam Burgess, Luther Burrell, Elliot Daly, Kyle Eastmond, Billy Twelvetrees, Henry SladeFly-halves: Danny Cipriani, George Ford, Owen Farrell, Stephen MylerScrum-halves: Ben Youngs, Danny Care, Richard Wigglesworth, Lee Dickson, Joe SimpsonForwards:Hookers: Luke Cowan Dickie, Dylan Hartley, Tom Youngs, Rob WebberProps: Kieran Brookes, Alex Corbisiero, Dan Cole, Joe Marler, Matt Mullan, Mako Vunipola, David WilsonLocks: Dave Attwood, Maro Itoje, George Kruis, Courtney Lawes, Joe Launchbury, Geoff ParlingFlankers: Calum Clark, James Haskell, Chris Robshaw, Matt Kvesic, Ed Slater, Tom WoodNo 8s: Nick Easter, Ben Morgan, Billy VunipolaClub by club breakdownSaracens: 10Bath: 8Saints: 8Harlequins: 6Leicester: 5Gloucester: 4Wasps: 4Exeter Chiefs: 3Sale Sharks: 1Newcastle Falcons: 1Average age: 26 However you judge Stuart Lancaster in the fullness of time, you cannot deny he is a man of conviction. In the Shakespeare room deep within Twickenham, he laid out his reasons for picking the bulbous England training squad with a stirring rhetoric that wouldn’t have looked out of place in Henry 1V.He chose to address the admissions first, specifically with an impassioned speech about the continued non-selection of foreign players, with Steffon Armitage and Nick Abendanon clearly in his thoughts.Lancaster stressed that the matter has been discussed at length, with the bottom line was he wanted to see all his players playing against each other, citing the 30 players who will cross swords at the weekend in the play-offs. He felt it was imperative to protect long-term development of the game. He was quick to point out he had not been under pressure from England squad members. Although you feel he would have been under no illusions as to the depth of feeling, with Tom Youngs and Tom Wood, already going public by saying their inclusion could be unsettling for all those players who had been building for one common aim for the last three years.Overlooked: Steffon Armitage has paid for his place by playing abroadIt’s plain that Steffon Armitage can consider himself very unfortunate to have missed out on World Cup selection, when he is clearly the foremost fetcher qualified to play for England but it could be argued he knew the policy – which has not changed in Lancaster’s time. Lancaster clearly feels that in Chris Robshaw, Matt Kvesic, Calum Clark and supplementary breakdown experts Dan Cole and Joe Launchbury he is well-covered. He can only hope that swat breakdown duos Sam Warburton, Justin Tipuric and Michael Hooper and David Pocock don’t leave England as crimson as the Red Rose in the pool stages.In Lancaster’s eyes, it is the best decision for England in the ‘short, medium and long term’ to stop an exodus of English players to France, frequently citing New Zealand as another country who had stuck to this line successfully. Nick Abendanon and the forgotten Toby Flood could consider themselves firmly in this bracket. The door is well and truly ferme.The other big talking point was the omission on Manu Tuilagi, who had been pleaded guilty to assault and criminal damage. Again, Lancaster stayed true to his conviction, hammering home it was the right line to take and that a lack of discipline could not be tolerated. ‘It was a difficult week, I’m disappointed for Manu, the coaches and the country. He is a high-quality player’ were sincerely conveyed.Disappointment: Lancaster said it was tough to omit Tuilagi but the right thing to doThere were also comforting words for those absent through injury including Leicester’s Tom Croft, ‘a Lion and a brilliant lineout forward’ and Saints’ Ben Foden ‘he won’t be far off by August, we can’t rule anything out’. It is also expected that the outstanding Joe Simpson will be closer to a return.Others name checked including the Exeter Chiefs strongman Dave Ewers, who has lost out due to the strength-in-depth in the back row and the quicksilver Christian Wade, who obviously has to continue to work on his defensive game.As for those who have been included in the squad, Andy Farrell was quick to justify Sam Burgess’ inclusion, even though the England management are still sure whether he’s a No 6 or No 12. Clearly, they want to see how far Burgess, who has impressed them with his leadership qualities, can progress before the squad is cut to 31-men in late August.Of the youngsters, Maro Itoje and Luke Cowan-Dickie were also two of 11 players under 23, who had impressed the management.Back in the game: Chris Ashton’s fine form for Sarries has led to a recallThen there are the comeback kids, Chris Ashton and David Strettle who can give themselves a congratulatory pat on the back for forcing their way back into the squad by pulling up their sleeves and crossing the whitewash.So what next? For those not involved at the weekend, the next chance for fringe players to impress is against the Barbarians, then it’s three weeks on a sun-lounger and for the chosen few a fitness camp in Denver. By late August the squad will be trimmed, lean and cut to 31.As Stuart Lancaster said, with less than four months to go, ‘it’s game on’.England 50-man training squad: Backs:Full-backs: Mike Brown, Alex Goode Players 23 and under: 11

There are four different designs to choose from.

However, Care has found that they are a particularly popular gift to give around Christmas time in that they appeal to those wanting to give alternative or ethical gifts at Christmas.Its first Christmas gift voucher campaign in 2011 sold over 1,500 vouchers worth over £38,000 in loan capital. So far this year the charity has generated nearly £10,000 in gift voucher sales.www.lendwithcare.org About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Participants in the 5K marathon run.Communities rallied together in the heart of West Philadelphia on Aug. 5 to mark the 40th anniversary of the police siege and assault on the MOVE family.The all-day itinerary of events also commemorated the 40th anniversary of the unjust arrest of the MOVE 9, which was ordered by white supremacist Mayor Frank Rizzo on Aug. 8, 1978.The day’s packed schedule began with dozens of runners, walkers and bicyclists, who endured the scorching sun and triple-digit temperatures to participate in a 5K marathon. The event raised money to fund the livelihood and ongoing legal battles of the MOVE 9.Later that afternoon, a public forum was held at Mastery High School — Shoemaker Campus in West Philadelphia. A series of panel discussions, hosted by Lavinia Davis and Orie Lumumba, brought the community together to discuss the history of MOVE and Philadelphia’s rich tradition in the Black Liberation struggle. Gentrification, mass incarceration, police brutality and “fake news” were all analyzed in a way that revealed the brutal and dishonest tactics of the ruling class’s ongoing war against Black radicals.Long Live Revolution! Long Live John Africa!The forum began with an affecting performance by the youth of the MOVE family, who marched into the hall to the song “Ain’t No Stopping Us Now” and then assembled on stage and chanted in unison. They showed that the organization is stronger and more numerous than ever. Shouts of “Ona Move! Long Live Revolution! Long Live John Africa!” reverberated throughout the auditorium.Lumumba began by celebrating the release of Debbie Africa. But he also drew the audience’s attention to those who were not in attendance at this event: Phil and Merle Africa, members of the MOVE 9 who were killed by the prison system; John Africa himself, who was assassinated by the Philadelphia Police Department on May 13, 1985, along with 10 other MOVE members; and especially the five MOVE children of Janet, Janine, and Consuela Africa who were killed that day. Consuela was in attendance and was specifically honored.MOVE 9 members were held in prison when news of their family members’ assassinations reached them in 1985. The system that prevented them from grieving together was the same system that perpetrated that mass murder and that aims to isolate and destroy all Black radicalism in the U.S.Panelist Saleem Holbrook described his own growing awareness of the MOVE struggle. It was only after he was sentenced to life in prison (an unjust conviction that has since been overturned) that he heard Ramona Africa interviewed on the radio. It challenged his media-fabricated understanding about MOVE as being composed of “angry, crazy people.”Holbrook heard Ramona’s message of Black liberation and environmental justice and was inspired to reach out to Chuck Africa, who was incarcerated at the same prison. Oppression of Black inmates was particularly intense at this state correctional facility, Holbrook explained, and there was “open war between prisoners and staff. When they took you to the hole, when they uncuff you, you knew you better start swinging.”Despite that, one morning Holbrook withstood guard retaliation in order to shout to Chuck across the walk: “Ona Move!”“Oppressed people must organize to defend themselves, to provide for each other and to meet each other’s needs,” Holbrook added. “No one is going to organize us but us.”Black identity in the age of ‘Black Identity Extremists’Other panelists included Russell Maroon Shoatz, son of the political prisoner of the same name; Temple University Professor Linn Washington; Candice McKinley of Black Lives Matter Philadelphia; and Mastery High School Principal Sharif El-Mekki, who insisted on the need for schools to be open community centers — and the need to teach positive Black identity to students.“Most teachers are parachuting into a community when school starts and then skyrocketing out when the bell rings,” stated El-Mekki. “Educators learn racism from the same place that police officers learn racism. Racism is learned at kitchen tables, on car rides home and in classrooms.”El-Mekki added, “It’s not a holistic education if it’s devoid of the concept of social justice.”The focus on systemic injustice was particularly poignant, given the Trump-Sessions Justice Department’s recent targeting of what they call “Black Identity Extremists.” Brad Thompson, lawyer for the MOVE 9, drew the connection between MOVE and contemporary Black liberation activists:“We need to free the MOVE 9 not because they are the only examples of injustices in this country, but because they are the most extreme examples. … They only pose a threat to the systems of injustice that seek to perpetuate their own power.”Mumia and MOVE in Black AugustAfter the panel, the audience was treated to a concert featuring local artists and musicians, including Seraiah Nicole, Mic Africa and Raw Life Crew.Attendees were encouraged to follow the hashtag #FreeMOVE9 and @MumiaFreedomBound on social media. Black Panther, MOVE supporter and political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal has a hearing in Philadelphia on Aug. 30 where a large mobilization to free Mumia is planned.Mike Africa Sr. has a parole hearing in October. Chuck Africa will be up for parole in November and Eddie Africa in January.

While declining the bail pleas of two accused in separate cases, the Bench of Justice Manoj Bajaj explicitly ruled that holding of simultaneous inquiry, either during investigation or post submission of final report under Section 173 (2) Cr. P.C is incomprehensible under the Code of Criminal Procedure. The matter before the Court The petitioners before the Court are accused in two different crime and they filed separate bail pleas, however, looking at the fact that the procedure of investigation adopted by state police in the above cases was similar and extremely strange, the cases were decided through a common judgment. Both the Counsels, appearing for the petitioners mainly set up the common ground and sought bail on merits by placing reliance upon the respective supplementary report(s) filed under Section 173 (8) Cr.P.C. Significantly, it was contended that in view of supplementary reports under Section 173 (8) Cr.P.C filed in favor of petitioners, the charge sheet under Section 173 (2) Cr.P.C filed earlier against them not be considered and they be granted bail based on supplementary reports under Section 173 (8) Cr.P.C. Problem with both the cases We know that a prosecution based upon a police report starts with the registration of a First Information Report, regarding alleged commission of cognizable offence. Further, in case, sufficient incriminating evidence is collected during the investigation, the accused is sent to face the trial along with the final report under Section 173(2) Cr.P.C, and on the contrary, if, the evidence is not available, the investigating officer is supposed to declare the suspect as innocent. Significantly, in the present cases, when the investigation in both the FIRs was in progress, the separate representations on behalf of the various accused persons or through their relatives were entertained by Senior Police Officers, who ordered simultaneous inquiries to examine their innocence only. The Director-General of Police, Punjab referred to an instruction dated 04th May 2017 issued by Department of Home Affairs & Justice, Punjab to justify the entertainment of separate representations. Significantly, this notification gave officers higher in rank authorization to accept such representation(s) and for further entrustment of the same to the competent officer for inquiry/verification/examination of facts etc. Further, in the present cases, the Inquiry officers upon conclusion of the inquiries (pursuant to submission of representations), submitted their reports in favor of the accused (applicants), and that too without even examining the final report under Section 173(2) Cr.P.C. In other words, the inquiry reports were subsequently decorated as supplementary reports under Section 173(8) Cr.P.C and were placed before the trial Court. In this way, the trial Courts in both these cases were seized of two conflicting conclusions of investigation & inquiry carried by different functionaries of state police. Now, relying on these inquiry reports (subsequently decorated as supplementary reports under Section 173(8) Cr.P.C), the petitioners sought bail. Court’s observations At the outset, the Court noted that in the garb of the instructions of 2017, the inquiry officers in criminal matters proceed with parallel investigation by recording statements of witnesses etc and submit their own independent report. “This procedure of inquiry has no legitimate sanctity to dislodge the police report under Section 173(2) Cr.P.C, but such reports certainly, add burden upon the judicial process of a criminal trial”, said the Court. The Court also noted that through the 2017 instructions, the prosecuting agency of the state had injected elasticity in the field of investigation through the above instructions by over-riding the statutory provisions contained in Chapter XII of the Code and created ambiguity. The Court also noted that on numerous occasions, the accused persons, instead of even availing the remedy of anticipatory bail, applied for an inquiry and this phenomenon often interdicted the ongoing investigation in an offence. Significantly, the Court remarked, “Many a time, the investigating officer is not even aware of the process of simultaneous inquiry initiated by his superior officers. This kind of multiple probes complicates the task of the trial Court to trace the culprits…” In other words, the Court further added, “The innovation of parallel inquiry introduces the rule of audi alteram partem for an accused and that it creates a remedy during the pendency of the investigation, by vesting discretion with the superior police officers, which is not in consonance with the principles of administration of criminal law and it gives rise to a possibility of building an escape route for criminals.” The Court also noted that once the investigation is complete and report is submitted before the Court of law, police have no authority to deal with another line of inquiry, without intimating the court.Importantly, the Court also noted,”It is also seen that by following this procedure, inquiry officer assumes the judicial role during the inquiry proceedings and delivers the opinion in relation to the innocence of the accused. This practice needs to be curbed and cannot be permitted to continue, therefore, this Court is compelled to suo moto exercise its inherent powers under Section 482 Cr.P.C.” Resultantly, the Court held that by following the instruction of the year 2017, the police officers higher in rank violated the procedural law of investigation contained in the Code of Criminal Procedure. Resultantly, the instructions dated 04.05.2017 were thereby quashed and further, the Court deemed it necessary to issue following directions: – In every case, where FIR has been registered regarding commission of a cognizable offence, the investigation shall be conducted by the Investigating Officer, strictly in accordance with the provisions of Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973. In every case, where after registration of FIR, the investigation has commenced, no representation/request on behalf of accused to examine his/her innocence shall be entertained by police and no parallel inquiry shall be initiated. In cases, whereupon the registration of FIR and commencement of the investigation, the state government or the state police orders transfer of investigation, then it shall be necessary to intimate the magistrate, before whom the special report under Section 157 (1) Cr.P.C was originally submitted. The intimation shall be given in writing with reasons for transfer of investigation. Whenever, the investigating officer after the commencement of investigation decides to hold or stop the investigation in respect of all or any of the accused persons, for any reason, it shall be mandatory for such officer to send the report under Section 157(2) Cr.P.C to the magistrate before whom report under Section 157(1) Cr.P.C was initially submitted. If, the trial Court upon conclusion of trial finds that the acquittal of the accused is on account of deliberate lapses in the investigation, it can pass appropriate orders for suitable departmental/penal action against the officers responsible for such lapses. The state governments of Punjab, Haryana and U.T. administration, Chandigarh shall ensure that the police officers and public prosecutors are properly sensitized about their responsibilities and duties and to further strictly adhere to the statutory provisions of the law in respect of the investigation in crime.
