TRAVEL ALERT Rainy season showers wash out roads across Costa Rica

first_imgHeavy rains this year in September and October have done a number one the country’s roadways, closing several major highways. As drivers navigate congestion and detours, some Ticos have taken their complaints to social media.Thursday, the National Roadway Council (CONAVI) reported that a flash flood caused by heavy rains washed away a bridge at kilometer 80 of route 32, near Parismina. The bridge over the Parismina River will be closed for at least two days, and possibly as many as five days, as crews work to erect a temporary bridge known as a Bailey bridge by Sunday.MOPT directed drivers to use route 10 between Turrialba and Siquirres as a San José-Limón detour.CONAVI reported that rains and landslides have closed four major routes across the country, including a landslide at km 58 of Route 142, between Tilarán and La Fortuna, near Arenal Volcano. Drivers can use route 4 toward Upala, exit on to route 6 and continue to Cañas over the Corobicí River.A bridge is out on Route 926 over the Cataratas River, between San Carlos and La Fortuna de San Carlos, Alajuela.Another bridge remains closed along route 150 between Nicoya and Sámara.   Facebook Comments #ElHuecoCRDriver frustration has reached a peak over collapsed roads this season, especially the closure of one section of Route 39, also known as Circunvalación, along the south side of San José. The washed-out highway has become known locally simply as “the Hole,” el hueco.Irritated commuters posted a clock that ticks away the time the major highway, which normally serves 60,000 drivers every day, remains under repair as a way to hold the MOPT and CONAVI accountable. Twitterati have coined the hashtag #ElHuecoCR to share news and gripe about the downed bridge, sporting the slogan, “We’ll see if it’s true.”There has been some respite lately though. The bridge connecting many tourists to La Paz Waterfall some five kilometers from Vara Blanca, Alajuela, was reopened with a Bailey bridge on Sept. 30, reported the daily La Nación. On Sept. 16, a flash flood wiped out the erstwhile temporary bridge that had been there for nearly a decade.Beach goers should take note that the Puntarenas-Paquera ferry is operating on a temporary schedule during the month of October for maintenance. The boats ferry tourists from the mainland to the southern Nicoya Peninsula where the beach towns of Malpaís, Santa Teresa, and Montezuma are located.  During the month of October 2013, the Puntarenas-Paquera ferry, connecting the mainland with the southern Nicoya Peninsula, will observe a temporary maintenance schedule.

Small Chinese investors flying blind in latest market boom

first_img Top Stories BEIJING (AP) — Li Haitao, a 24-year-old employee at a steel trading company, did no research last June before he joined a stampede of novice investors into China’s surging stock market.He paid for his risk-taking.“I went in blind,” said Li, who works in the southern province of Hunan. “I already have suffered some losses, but luckily not much.”Many new investors piling into China’s stock market, which has more than doubled in less than a year, are like Li: Rookies with little information whose enthusiasm for risky speculative trading is fueling rising concern they might be hurt when the boom cools. New investors are often encouraged by stories of stock market-driven wealth gains for China’s elite.Boosted by surging asset prices, China created a new billionaire almost every week in the first quarter of this year, according to a survey by Swiss bank UBS.Huang said she has doubled her money since late 2014 but acknowledged that after the 2007 bubble burst, she lost 70 percent of her investment.“I didn’t have much experience and knowledge about investment,” she said.Regulators have taken steps to try to insulate the state-owned financial industry from a possible downturn. In April, brokerages were told to rein in lending to investors to buy stocks in an apparent move to limit losses if speculators go bust.The People’s Daily commentary May 4 noted that few investors made money in past booms — an acknowledgement that the profits go to state-owned brokerages and other big traders. It called on the public to “invest rationally.”But those warnings are so mild that new investors are still piling into the markets.Investors opened a record 4.428 million new trading accounts in the week ended May 29, according to the China Securities Depository and Clearing Co. That is several times the peak for new accounts during the 2007 boom.

Huang echoes a common sentiment in a heavily regulated economy in which stock prices are driven more by policy changes than by economic fundamentals: “The stock market in China is obviously manipulated by government, so if you are to make losses, it is fated and has nothing to with whether you know more or not.”The latest boom began after the state press said last summer stocks were cheap. Investors took that to mean Beijing wanted prices to rise — and might prop up markets if needed.The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index has soared 150 percent over the past year, though it has suffered stomach-churning drops along the way, most recently a 6.5 percent plunge May 28.The ruling Communist Party wants to develop China’s stock markets as a tool to help make the state-dominated economy more efficient but its leaders appear to be getting uneasy the latest boom might run out of control.State media have gradually begun to urge caution. But that comes after months of cheerleading for higher prices and encouraging the public to buy.The party newspaper People’s Daily in a May 4 commentary declared the latest boom a “profitable golden era.” TV stations in Shanghai and other cities broadcast as many as three programs a day with commentators talking about the latest market moves. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility “I’m ready to invest in the stock market, mostly inspired by my friends,” said a 60-year-old woman who was visiting a brokerage in Beijing and would give only her surname, Zhang.“I have no plans or the energy to learn all the ABCs of investment,” said Zhang as she watched share prices change on a wall-size monitor. “So, basically, I’ll just look around and see whether this blind cat can catch a mouse.”___AP researchers Fu Ting in Shanghai and Dong Tongjian in Beijing contributed.Copyright © The Associated Press.

They do not care,” said Zhang Chi, a securities analyst in Shanghai and former financial columnist for several newspapers. “I am worried about them.”In contrast to the United States, Europe or Japan, where many people invest through mutual funds, most Chinese investors buy stocks directly, sometimes in companies whose names they cannot remember.Financial literacy is limited in a society where the mainland’s first communist-era stock exchange opened in Shanghai only in 1990. Brokerages offer classes in trading but a culture of commentators who preach the gospel of low-risk, long-term investing has yet to develop. Many small investors rely on rumors or tips from friends in a market rife with complaints of insider trading and fraud. Reports say the China Household Finance Survey, which is conducted by Southwestern University of Finance and Economics, found nearly 6 percent of new investors were illiterate, a quarter finished only elementary school and more than third left the education system at junior high school level.“I bought shares almost without basis, blindly,” said a 54-year-old woman who would give only her surname, Huang, and was sitting at a desk in a room set aside by a Beijing brokerage for frequent traders. She said she has been investing since 2000 and is up 20 to 30 percent in the latest boom. 4 must play golf courses in Arizona In this photo taken May 28, 2015, Chinese stock investors react as prices fall at a brokerage house in Fuyang in central China’s Anhui province.

That might make them too young to remember China’s last market boom in 2007. It was followed by a price collapse that saw the benchmark index nose dive 70 percent over the following year.In 2010, the state-owned China Securities Investor Protection Funds, which insures against possible losses due to fraud or a broker going bankrupt, produced an educational 40-episode TV series, “Uncle Niu’s Story in the Stock Market.” The story follows Uncle Niu, Chinese for “Bull,” a play on the bull market, as he makes and loses money, highlighting principles of sensible investing.

SiteMinder analysis finds online hotel bookings have doubled

first_imgSiteMinder analysis finds online hotel bookings have doubledSiteMinder analysis finds online hotel bookings have doubledA country analysis by the global hotel industry’s leading cloud platform, SiteMinder, has revealed online hotel bookings in Spain have virtually doubled over the past five years. The finding is based on data from Euromonitor International, which reports that hotels in the world’s most tourist-ready economy earned €7.3 billion from bookings made through the Internet in 2017 – or, 98 percent more than the €3.7 billion registered from Internet-based hotel bookings in 2012.Today’s announcement comes as SiteMinder counts down to its sixth consecutive appearance at Fitur, the world’s tourism trade fair for the Ibero American markets, this week.Mateus Coelho, Regional Manager for SiteMinder’s Iberian and Brazilian markets, says, “With an enviable climate, excellent beaches and cities that offer all kinds of activities, Spain has the opportunity to reach travellers from all over the world who want to experience all the country has to offer. It is essential that local hotels take advantage of this opportunity by being more visible online and allowing potential guests to make their reservations instantly and safely through the web.”The analysis by SiteMinder suggests Spain’s hotels are indeed capitalising on the growing volume of tourists arriving each year – by taking ownership of their supply. While third-party sites continue to contribute 57 percent of the country’s online hotel sales, their contribution is a drop from the levels seen in previous years and it is expected to drop to below 50 percent within the next three years.“Direct hotel bookings have grown 113 percent in the last five years, indicating a closer relationship between Spanish hotels and their guests. A holistic distribution strategy therefore has to be a priority in 2018, for any hotel in Spain that is looking to compete and stand out in a highly-saturated market,” says Mr Coelho.Barcelona remained Spain’s most popular destination in 2017, followed by Madrid and Palma de Mallorca, which attracted the second and third-highest number of arrivals into the country. Almost four-in-five travellers were under 50-years-old.Source = SiteMinderlast_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories “I think it’s just one of those things,” Humphries said of not being ready to play just yet. “I knew I wasn’t ready, that was clear. But I feel like it’s not taking too much time as long as I’m getting better. It’s taking too much time if I’m just sitting still and I’m not getting any better.“As long as I’m getting better and I’m progressing, I feel like I’m not going to rush it all. I want to be as prepared as I can be to be ready to help this team out when I get put out on the field.” Even if the Cardinals don’t need much from Humphries this season, the fact that he is making progress is a very good sign. At some point, the team will likely need to turn to the 6-foot-5, 307-pounder, be it this year or next.“A lot of progress,” Arians said of what he’s seeing from the first-round pick. “I really like where he’s at right now, his competitive level. (Defensive end) Dwight Freeney’s helped him a little bit too, as (linebacker) Markus Golden has the whole time he’s been here. They get after it and if you don’t get after it, you’ll get embarrassed. He’s handled himself pretty well.”Goodwin said along with the physical aspect of the game, Humphries needed to learn the mental side, including what it takes to play at a consistently high level. That may not be too surprising, really, as he would not be the first rookie to have a bit of a learning curve before being a reliable, finished product.The offensive coordinator pointed to 2013 first-round pick Jonathan Cooper as a very talented player who has needed time to grow, so that Humphries may be on the same path is not necessarily a terrible thing.If nothing else, it’s just the way it is. TEMPE, Ariz. — In a lot of ways, D.J. Humphries’ rookie season has gone according to plan.Though the 24th overall selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, the hope was that with Jared Veldheer at left tackle and Bobby Massie at right tackle, the former Florida Gator would not be needed this year.He could, for all intents and purposes, sit on the sideline and learn his craft, readying himself for a future that appears to be rather promising.center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires However, it’s fair to say few expected Humphries to be inactive for each of the Cardinals’ first seven games, which is exactly what he has been. Whether he was ready or not, the team was not ready for him.But Humphries, 21, is on the right track.“I just kind of gave B.A. a drive by and said, ‘Man, he’s getting better,’” offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said. “He’s working harder. He’s starting to see what these older guys are doing, these veteran guys and just kind of doing what they do. But he is getting better.”Goodwin said Humphries has been putting in good work in the weight room, too, and that the rookie’s evolution is on display.“He’s making strides, but as we know, Rome wasn’t built in a day,” he added.Nicknamed “Knee Deep” in the offseason because he needed a little extra motivation at times, Humphries too said he feels like things are moving in the right direction.“Definitely feel like things are starting to change and come around,” he said. “I think it’s just I’m starting to get comfortable. Stuff is starting to feel more natural, muscle memory is getting down pat. Learning the speed of the game and just learning what everybody expects from me.” Comments   Share   Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

That makes my diktat on party matters final — Chief Minister of Delhi and Convener of Aam Aadmi Party Arvind Kejriwal has made it clear As expected the National Executive (NE) of AAP has voted out both senior leaders and members of the original core team — Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan — of the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) the top decision-making body Prahsant Bhushant and Yogendra Yadav in a file photo PTI Out of 21 members 19 participated in the voting It was a close fight as 11 voted against the duo and eight in favour Simultaneously on the expected lines the NE rejected the resignation of Kejriwal Coming out of the meeting Kumar Vishwas who headed the NE on Wednesday said "All the members are united with the party The NE through voting discharged Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan of the PAC and now they will be given new responsibilities Arvind Kejriwal’s resignation has been rejected There were other discussions on Mission Vistaar party’s disciplinary committee etc" The message of Vishwas was clear Despite voting in the NE Kejriwal and his loyalists have successfully booted both the dissenters out of this top decision-making body And by mentioning about the ‘disciplinary committee’ Vishwas subtly gave a hint that any anti-party — read anti-Kejriwal — voice will be ruthlessly curbed AAP’s ideologue and current chief spokesperson Yogendra Yadav has also lost his post of chief spokesperson Three key issues on which hours of stormy discussion and debate took place were: · The resignation tendered by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal from the post of AAP’s convener · The ouster of two senior leaders – Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan – from the National Executive · On whether an alternative position should be given to these two leaders under a ‘compromise’ brokered ahead of the meeting and during the brainstorming session Ahead of this crucial meeting speculations were rife that both Yadav and Bhushan might even be shown the door as a section close to Kejriwal and the Deputy CM Manish Sisodia were strongly lobbying for it The war was full blown on social media and Twitter However party insiders told Firstpost that a ‘compromise formula’ would be drawn which will be more a win-win situation through which “egos of respective individuals and groups would be taken care of" And it happened The formula of compromise: · Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan out of PAC · They have been given other responsibilities Yadav to head party’s Kisan Morcha and Bhushan as a member of Lokpal · NE rejects Kejriwal’s resignation "There’s no surprise element in the outcome of the NE meeting Everything was pre-decided And it was also on expected that Kejriwal won’t attend the NE He put his coterie at the fore-front to fight the battle And the coterie ensured whatever Kejriwal wanted – to shunt Bhushan and Yadav; and retain his position as convener His resignation was a sham a drama the art he has perfected" remarked a former member of one of the key decision-making bodies in AAP It all started in the morning much before the NE meeting was scheduled The army of thousands of highly motivated and committed volunteers who made it possible for the new political outfit to make its mark in the Delhi assembly election 2013 and again helped it win Delhi with a stupendous victory on 10 February this year was back in action Outside the resort at Kapashera village bordering Delhi-Gurgaon in the north-western part of Delhi where the National Executive meeting of AAP was in progress hundreds of volunteers gathered much ahead of scheduled time demanding for an amicable solution This band of young volunteers who came from various parts of Delhi and Gurgaon donning party’s trademark topi were holding small placards in their hands displaying the old adage – ‘United we stand Divided we fall’ While the meeting was in progress various groups of volunteers in large numbers were found waiting impatiently for the outcome "I’m only a volunteer a foot soldier like many others in this team I pray for an amicable solution so that the party can get over the present crisis We want the party to remain intact and serve Delhi" said Shailendra who was from Gurgaon Manveer who sounded optimistic was quick to add "Neither are we from any camp nor do we believe in the existence of any sub-groups within AAP We want all our leaders to remain in the party All the volunteers who have gathered here want the party to remain strong and united Hope something good will emerge out of this meeting" Besides volunteers another key figure that emerged on Wednesday in brokering the ‘compromise formula’ between the two factions and played an important role in combating the crisis was Kumar Vishwas According to sources and eye-witnesses Vishwas was active right from the beginning of the meeting Rather it would be more pertinent to say that this poet-turned-politician had been making hectic parleys over the last three days to broker a deal and keep the party intact It’s a known fact that Vishwas is strongly with Arvind Kejriwal as a backup and it became evident during the party’s poll victory celebration Vishwas with his wife by his side was present throughout with Kejriwal’s family — whether at the AAP’s Patel Nagar office or at the Kejriwal’s residence He escorted Kejriwal from his residence to Ramlila Maidan "After the 2013 assembly election Vishwas went into hibernation for some time because he got into minor controversies due to his impromptu speech But now he has composed himself and is a strong support to Kejriwal Moreover he has a clean image" an AAP member said By: Express News Service | Mumbai | Published: April 6 2017 3:14 am Top News The Bombay High Court allowed an intervention application by Congress leader Kripashankar Singh that sought to dismiss a petition filed against him on the grounds that it was similar to the allegations raised in the past petitions that had been disposed of by

run into obstacles due to Telangana-related disruptions Related News Plans to pass anti-graft laws during the current Parliament session are ambitious The second part of the winter session of Parliament is beginning today The agenda for the session indicates that the government is planning to push for the passage of six anti-corruption bills Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi has urged that these bills which form part of the government’s anti-corruption framework be considered and passed by Parliament before the expiry of the term of the 15th Lok Sabha These six bills are the Judicial Standards and Accountability Bill 2010 the Whistle Blowers Protection Bill 2011 the Right of Citizens for Time Bound Delivery of Goods and Services and Redressal of their Grievances Bill 2011 (that is the citizen’s charter bill) the Prevention of Bribery of Foreign Public Officials and Officials of Public International Organisations Bill 2011 the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill 2013 and the Public Procurement Bill 2012 The bills are in different stages of the parliamentary system The two bills that are closest to the finishing line are the judicial standards bill and the whistleblower’s bill Both these bills have been passed by the Lok Sabha and need to be passed by the Rajya Sabha The judicial standards bill requires judges to declare their assets lays down judicial standards and provides a process for the removal of judges of the Supreme Court and high courts The critical issue is whether the mechanisms proposed are able to achieve a balance between the independence and accountability of judges The whistleblower’s bill provides a mechanism for public servants and others to make disclosures related to corruption and misuse of power by public officials When the bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha it specified that disclosures against armed forces and intelligence organisations could not be made On the recommendations of the parliamentary committee that scrutinised the bill the government deleted these provisions Last year the government circulated amendments to the bill in the Rajya Sabha One of these amendments seeks to prevent any disclosures which are likely to “prejudicially affect the sovereignty and integrity of India the security strategic scientific or economic interests of the state relations with foreign states or which may lead to the incitement of an offence” If this amendment is passed by the Rajya Sabha it would amount to reversing the stand taken by the Lok Sabha The parliamentary committees examining the citizen’s charter bill and the prevention of bribery of foreign public officials bill have submitted their reports and now they need to be passed by both Houses of Parliament The citizen’s charter bill seeks to create a mechanism to ensure timely delivery of goods and services to citizens by Central and state public authorities Since a number of state legislatures have already enacted their own right to public service delivery acts the passage of this bill could potentially create ambiguity between the Central and state acts The parliamentary committee which examined the bill was of the opinion that Parliament was competent to enact it It also observed that the layout of the bill would ensure that the Centre and state governments would be independent of the other while implementing the bill Under the bill only Indian citizens can file complaints for non-delivery of services The prevention of bribery of foreign public officials bill provides a mechanism to deal with bribery among foreign public officials and criminalises both the giving and taking of bribes It also empowers the Central government to enter into agreements with other countries to enforce this law and for the exchange of investigative information The last two bills that are part of the government’s anti-corruption framework are the bill to amend the Prevention of Corruption Act and the Public Procurement Bill They are currently pending before the parliamentary committees to which they were referred to for scrutiny The amendment to the Prevention of Corruption Act expands the scope of the offence relating to a public servant being bribed The bill covers the offences of giving a bribe and soliciting and accepting a bribe through an intermediary It also has clauses that provide for confiscation of bribes and the proceeds of bribery The Public Procurement Bill seeks to regulate and ensure transparency in procurement by the Central government The government is empowered to exempt any procurements or procuring entities from the provisions of the bill in public interest The bill specifies open competitive bidding as the preferred method for procurement and specifies the conditions under which other procurement methods can be used and the procedure that is to be followed Besides these six bills the Electronic Delivery of Services Bill and the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Bill are also pending in Parliament If passed these bills could supplement the government’s efforts in combating corruption The passage of these anti-corruption bills in the 12-day session could run into obstacles given that both Houses are expected to see disruptions on account of the Telangana issue To sustain the fight against corruption and the deliberative character of our democracy it is important that these bills are passed after constructive debate in Parliament The writer is head of outreach PRS Legislative Research Delhi express@expressindiacom For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

(Source: PTI) Top News Marin Cilic’s 2017 season didn’t get off to the best of starts as he crashed out in the second round of the Chennai Open to qualifier Josef Kovalik in a match lasting two hours and 48 minutes The scoreline read 7-6 5-7 7-5 in favour of the Slovakian when the players shook hands and most in attendance wore a shocked look Later in the press conference the 2014 US Open champion blamed the loss on his poor return of serves “It’s first match of the season obviously you are a bit rusty without match play In some situations I was hesitating to go for my shots and he was making good shots on his backhand till the end” he said “I had small opportunities on his serve but I was not able to convert and that was because of lack of concentration It’s a bit unfortunate It’s not good to start a season like this with a loss I did not feel I was playing bad I was serving well hitting shots quite well In certain situations I was little hesitant to go little bit more for my shots” he would go on to add And the numbers do tell the same story He would only win 34 per cent of the first serve points on Kovalik’s serve and 36 per cent on the second but the most telling statistic is the break point conversion: 2/11 (18 per cent) with three chances coming in the final game Playing his first match of the season one expected Cilic to be rusty but not completely out of sorts from the word go as he would face break point in the first game itself Kovalik however won’t have such issues considering he had played two qualifying matches and then come through the first round Moreover the lack of knowledge of the young Slovakian came to his advantage “I have never played with him never practiced with He broke through the Tour last year but I had not seen him play He played extremely well today I was not expecting that coming from him” Cilic would state And Kovalik would back that argument too “I have nothing to lose and he has everything to lose I can play freely

known for aesthetics in batting Sure he does the adrenalin-pumping big hits but you don’t normally cue up his batting highlights to sigh in aesthetic pleasure But there is this one shot rather position he ends up on occasions which makes you press the ‘last 10 seconds’ button on HotStar to watch it again It made its appearance on Saturday afternoon in Hyderabad on a slow pitch against the left-arm spin of Bipul Sharma It was a sluggish pitch and runs were at a premium Stokes was in an innings-rebuilding partnership with Steve Smith when he decided to take some risk He slog-swept Sharma for a six — your regular banal IPL six but it was the second six of the over that made one look for that 10-sec icon He had come down the track but Sharma squeezed out this one that much slower and shortened the length as well Stokes realised he had to reach out way in front of his body if he was to continue with his original thought of destruction And he did that in some style He lunged forward and as the bat came down for the crunchy-connect the back leg waltzed into air To maintain balance and also give him that extra leverage to get some power into the shot – it was like a leg-popping kiss movement of the back leg Up it went and the upper body lunged forward and the bat sliced through the air for the smacking blow The leg-pop the body-arc and the powerful finish made it a lovely sight Hope there was a photographer stationed at square-leg to frame it You didn’t need a cameraman to focus on Stokes to capture his decisive moves with the ball in the chase The departing batsmen showed all the drama and anguish in their faces Just like the twin sixes it was a double whammy from Stokes again as he took out Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson in an over He went round the stumps and angled in a seamer that kept low and went through the awkward defensive technique of Dhawan And Williamson was done in by the extra bounce two balls later It kicked up outside off took the slice of the forward prod and rushed into Dhoni’s gloves Stokes wasn’t done yet The game breaker returned to have David Warner slashing a short ball outside off to deep cover Slow-ball specialist Jaydev

big hit Five men were deceived by him on Saturday Well perhaps deceived isn’t the most apt term there as it’s difficult to imagine that the batsmen don’t know what’s coming out at them from Unadkat Yet they succumbed In Yuvraj Singh’s case it wasn’t a mess-up but he nevertheless fell into the Unadkat trap 32 runs were needed in the last 3 overs and Yuvraj was on 47 With Yuvraj killing anything on his legs or on a length on the stumps Unadkat’s plan was clear: Keep it outside off He does the slower short-of-length stuff pretty well They don’t look venomous but in the end-over scenario with a well-placed field it works out well for him The ball climbed slowly well outside off and Yuvraj ended up slashing it to deep cover In the same over he snuffed out Hyderabad’s remaining big hope Naman Ojha with another slower one By the time he started his final over with Hyderabad needing 13 to win the momentum was with his team He rolled out a series of slower ones away from the batsmen who kept trying to heave it across the line Sharma holed out at deep square leg and Rashid Khan provided yet another caught-and-bowled opportunity to Unadkat whose slower ones regularly get him under the mishit skiers in the end-overs Bhuvneshwar Kumar too tried to slog across the line but ended up shanking the slower cutter to extra cover With that Unadkat reached his 100th T20 wicket How many of
