Nitish Rana and Hardik Pandya for securing the team’s first win of the Indian Premier League Rana smashed 50 off 29 balls before Pandya came up with a 29-run cameo off 11 balls to seal a thrilling four wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma Sportzpics/IPL "Winning the game was important We’re known for this – we keep people on their toes Very happy with this win" said Rohit at the post match presentation "Here at Wankhede we back our players to get the runs with the dew coming in and the flat pitch We were hoping Rana and Hardik would finish it off and they did It’s important for any team to have young players come in like that and finish the job I hope they repeat it "There’s still room for improvement We don’t want to be in the back seat We know the things we didn’t do well today and we’ll go back to the drawing board before our next game" he added KKR captain Gautam Gambhir was frank in his assessment saying his players could not handle the pressure "We put a good score on the board in the last three overs But Hardik and Rana played unbelievable innings If we’d taken Hardik’s catch anything might have happened "We back our bowlers to do the job It’s just a matter of keeping our nerves calm We panicked a little in the end with the misfield and the dropped catch (cost us) It’s a good chasing ground – you could chase anything "There was a bit of dew on the ground that didn’t make it easy for spinners either but we needed to hold our nerves in the end" said Gambhir Mumbai: Experienced South Africa all-rounder Jean Paul Duminy doesn’t think there is any additional pressure on him and his team mates going into the ICC World Twenty20 Championships because the Proteas have invariably come unstuck in these major events "Pressure is always there but there’s no additional pressure In the past I would like to think that we had buckled under pressure But in the last T20 and 50-over World Cups we lost in the semi-finals yes but were outplayed by better teams" said Duminy at a media interactive session in Mumbai on Friday "We have made big strides We have competed in those semi-finals and given ourselves a good chance of winning but unfortunately not got over the line Hopefully this time around if we get that opportunity again we would come out on the better side" said the 31-year old batsman who bowls off spin JP Duminy Getty Duminy was of the opinion that teams ranked in the top four (South Africa are No1) going into these world events are at an advantageous position He also said that the proliferation of T20 leagues around the world has made this prestigious tournament a more even field "So many T20 cricket is being played around the world that guys are getting more experienced especially when it comes to the shorter format Many sides are capable and it makes it more exciting Not one side can potentially win the series or tournament "If you are ranked in the top 3 or 4 you give yourselves a good chance coming into this sort of tournament We are quietly confident that we stand a good chance" he added Duminy said the mood in his country and within the team was upbeat ahead of their campaign that starts with the Super 10 Group 1 match against England here on March 18 "Quietly confident is the phrase that comes to mind especially in terms of the shorter format about how we have been playing A lot of confidence within our country and within our team swirls around "We are looking forward to this tournament and to the fact that we have had great success in this format over the last 18 months There was a hiccup against Australia (team\ lost 1-2 after leading 1-0) but lots of positives emerged too" he said Asked whether there had been any pep talks within the group he said there have been some but it all becomes irrelevant unless the performance on the field follows "Within the squad we have had good conversation and the understanding of what’s needed to play well in these conditions You can have all the talk but it’s performance on the field that counts" He agreed that the connection many South African cricketers have with the Indian Premier League is beneficial to play in the conditions here but at the same time the opposition is varied "It’s always advantageous when you are playing in these kinds of tournaments and in these conditions But the difference here is you will be playing certain teams in these conditions "You won’t necessarily be playing a lot of spin like against India or when you play in IPL You have to understand what the opposition strategy would be against you in these conditions and be prepared for it" Duminy said The South African said he looked forward to bowl on Indian tracks "I do enjoy bowling on Indian wickets I know that’s going to potentially bring a lot of opportunities for me especially in these conditions Hopefully I can given those opportunities will make them count" PTI Just minutes after Patidar leader Hardik Patelannounced Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) supportfor the Congress in the upcoming Assembly election which will help the community to get reservations in jobs and education the BJP slammed the Patidar leader calling him a "Congress agent" Speaking to reporters in Gandhinagar Gujarat deputy chief minister Nitin Patel alleged that the Congress has been guiding the Hardik-led movement for the past two years "Congress is helping the Patidar movement by funding their protests and by giving them political guidance" Patel said "Hardik says he is striking a deal with the Congress for the sake of the community but he is actually a Congress agent Hardik is working on the instructions of Congress" Patel alleged File image of Patidar leader Hardik Patel News18 Alleging that the PAAS

talk like an old experienced intellectual as "every one in Gujarat knows his reality" "It does not suit him Hardik’s ‘pravachan’ (sermon) that he does not want tickets is bogus His carefree lifestyle has been witnessed by whole of Gujarat" Patel said Claiming that it is a Congress strategy to hand "lollipop" to people Patel said that "naive" Hardik does not understand the legality and technicality involved in breaching the 50 percent mark in reservations "We do not even know whether Hardik is even a graduate It is odd for a young man like him to talk like an expert He does not understand that it is in Congress’ nature to do ‘chal kapat’ (use devious means)" Patel added that according to the 1993 judgment in the Indira Swaheney versus the Union of India reservations cannot exceed 50 percent of the total limit He also advised Hardik to consult some legal experts who work at the Gujarat High Court as well as the Supreme Court and not to listen to leaders like Kapil Sibal and Shaktisinh Gohil Departing from the colonial-era tradition of presenting the Union Budget on the last working day of February the government on Tuesday finally announced that it will now be presented on 1 February The announcement has come a day before the beginning of the month-long Winter Session of Parliament to be held from 16 November to 16 December Prior to this Prime Minister Narendra Modi on 26 October had given a clear indication that Budget 2017 would be presented a month in advance Urging the states to align their plans according to the revised date of budget presentation Modi had said the new system would ensure speedier implementation of schemes While chairing his 16thinteraction through PRAGATI — the ICT-based multi-modal platform for Pro-Active Governance and Timely Implementation on 26 October the prime minister had urged all states to align their plans with this advancement so that they could take maximum advantage of this move File image of the Indian Parliament PTI Why the departure from 28 February The Cabinet on 21 September had in-principle decided to end the colonial-era tradition of presenting the budget on the last working day of February — which is generally 28 February and 29 February during a leap year — and advance it by a month so that the legislative approval for annual spending plans and tax proposals could be completed before the beginning of the new financial year on 1 April A similar departure from the age old tradition was witnessed during Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s NDA 10 government when the then finance minister Yashwant Sinha had changed the time of the presentation of the Union budget Earlier the budget used to be presented at 5 pm but Sinha during Budget 2001 advanced it to 11 am And it has become a tradition since then The earlier practice was inherited from the colonial era when the British Parliament would pass the budget in the noon followed by India in the evening of that day Besides advancing the Budget day the Cabinet had also decided in September to do away with the 92-year old practice of having a separate Railway Budget merging it with the Union Budget The decision to merge the two budgets was mooted by Railway MinisterSuresh Prabhuand endorsed by NITI Aayog which also proposed the doing away of the distinction between plan and non-planned expenditure Since 1924 the Railways has been having a separate budget as the British considered it necessary to focus on India’s most important infrastructure network which went on to become one of the world’s largest rail networks How will the new move help To facilitate its early presentation the Finance Ministry had proposed that the Budget Session be convened before 25 January a month ahead of the current practice According to experts the advancement of budget announcement date will help the entire budgetary exercise to be over by and the Finance Bill to be passed and implemented from 1 April onwards instead of June It’ll help companies and households to finalise their savings investment and tax plans The Finance Bill and Appropriation Bill containing tax changes and expenditure details respectively are passed in May Several tax proposals come into effect only after the Finance Bill is passed in May “The advantage here is that the Finance Bill will be passed in the Parliament in the next two months — February and March and expenditures can begin from 1 April unlike now As per the traditional practice after presenting the Budget in Parliament on the last day of February the Cabinet has the last month (March) left to get all the legislative approvals for the annual spending and tax proposals before the beginning of the new financial year on 1 April Early presentation of Budget will help the entire exercise to get over by 31 March and expenditure as well as tax proposals can come into effect right from the beginning of new fiscal thereby ensuring better implementation” economist Professor Arun Kumar told Firstpost Area of concern “Data for the current year is important for the formulation of budget In the case of 28 February we get quality data of nine to 10 months By advancing the budget announcement date by a month we’ll have a month’s worth of less data Moreover budget preparations have to be ready by December so there is a need to speed up the data-availability process It might lead to chances of substantial error which is a matter of concern” added Kumar former Sukhamoy Chakravarty Chair Professor at the Centre for Economic Studies and Planning Jawaharlal Nehru University Will there be a change in Financial Year too In India the financial year runs from 1 April to 31 March However the government has also been considering change the financial year — possibly 1 January to 31 December — in sync with the calendar year It’ll also align India with most countries besides the World Bank and International Monetary Fund “NITI Aayog has expressed the need to amend the financial year for better budget planning and 1 January to 31 December will be the best suited as most of the countries across the world follow it” a Finance Ministry source said The government constituted a four-member committee headed by former Chief Economic Advisor Dr Shankar Acharya on 6 July to examine the desirability and feasibility of having a new financial year The committee has been given time to submit its report by 31 December Prior to this the LK Jha committee in 1984 had also recommended the January-December cycle For full coverage of Union Budget 2017 click here Chennai: The Tamil Nadu

with six adults scheduled to receive gastric bypass surgery whose average age was 38 years and had an average body mass index (BMI) of 512 kg/m2 Blood samples showed that at least 168 microRNAs —the molecules responsible for sending specific messages —had changed before and after surgery Further analyses showed that many of these microRNAs were involved in insulin signalling the pathways that the
