Dhoni about the Failure

February 26, 2009 at 2:57 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

M.S. Dhoni, the Indian captain, cited his side’s failure to analyse the situation while batting as the reason for the seven-wicket defeat in the first Twenty20 International here on Wednesday.

“One area we need to improve upon is analysing the situation,” said Dhoni. “I think most of the batsmen batted well and were looking in good nick. But the mistake we committed was that we went with the momentum. At times you have to analyse whether you are happy with the extra 25 runs or get to a total your bowlers can defend.”
“It’s very important to realise where the game is going and what your contribution can be. Whenever you go after the bowlers for big shots there is risk involved. It looks very good but you have to realise what a safe score is on that kind of wicket.”Dhoni, however, stressed that his side would learn from the error.“One thing for sure is we have learnt a lot from our mistakes,” he said. “We are a good side that learns very quickly. ”Dhoni also had praise for his bowlers. “The bowlers did a fantastic job, especially Harbhajan Singh, who played after a long time. Same way, Zaheer Khan and Ishant Sharma contributed and bowled well.”Pleased Daniel Vettori was understandably chuffed with New Zealand’s day. “There are number of aspects I was pleased with,” said Vettori. “Obviously we were put under immense pressure at the start. The way bowlers responded to it, and the way they restricted a destructive team like India to 160-odd was excellent. And then in the chase, Brendon McCullum was the rock, and Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Jacob Oram played around him.”

Bush looking for help

November 22, 2008 at 3:12 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )


President George W Bush does not see his final Asia-Pacific summit this week in South America as a farewell but rather a chance to enlist more nations in the battle against a financial crisis that threatens to pull the world economy into a severe economic recession.
In a pre-trip briefing, Bush administration officials said that the president was focused on getting more nations to sign on to a broad action plan adopted in Washington last weekend by the Group of 20 nations. He also will have one-on-one talks with the leaders of Russia, China, South Korea and Japan.

Bush leaves on Friday for a three-day trip to Lima, Peru, where he will attend the 21-nation Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum, likely his last summit with world leaders.

Nine of the nations at the summit also attended the Washington summit meeting on the global economic crisis, a gathering of about 20 leaders representing the seven wealthiest nations and major emerging economies, China, Brazil and India.

Dan Price, the president’s deputy national security adviser for economic affairs, said Bush and the other G-20 leaders who will be attending the APEC meetings were eager to get endorsement for the outlines of the G-20 action plan which proposed a series of approaches countries should pursue to attack a financial crisis that began in the United States with rising defaults on subprime variable-rate mortgages but has now spread globally.

The G-20 action plan endorsed increased government stimulus efforts and directed finance ministers to search for ways to improve regulation of financial markets. It was lax regulation in such areas as credit rating agencies and on complex financial instruments, such as certain types of derivatives, that are seen as a root cause of the financial meltdown.
