Selection committee chairman Krish Srikkanth showered praise
on Sourav Ganguly on Friday. “He’s really batted like a true champion
right through in his farewell series. He’s put his heart and soul into it. I
feel so happy and proud for him. It’s nice to see him going out on a
high,” Srikkanth told.
Ganguly has set the adrenalin flowing, batting attractively and playing some
crucial knocks in this series while notching up 324 runs at an impressive
average of 64.80.
getting out when he looked set for a hundred. “I
told Sourav that he’s got to get a hundred in his 100th Test. He was going
great guns but it was God’s will that he ended up 15 runs short. But it was
still an invaluable knock for the team.”
Srikkanth also pointed out that Ganguly played his part in the selection of
Tamil Nadu opener M. Vijay for the final Test match.
“Sourav played with him in the
A match and he specifically told me, ‘Chika, here is a guy whom you have to
look seriously’. So I took his words seriously because when a player of
Ganguly’s wisdom endorses someone he has to special.”
WALKING OFF: Gautam Gambhir walks back to the pavilion as the Australian team celebrates the fall of his wicket.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has rejected the appeal of Gautam Gambhir and upheld the one-Test match ban imposed by match referee Chis Broad.
Justice Albie Sachs, who was appointed to hear the appeal, upheld the ban, which means Gambhir will miss the fourth and final Test match against Australia starting from November 6.
Justice Sachs, Cricket South Africa’s appointment on the ICC Code of Conduct Commission, was appointed to hear the appeal in accordance with ICC Code of Conduct processes.
Tamil Nadu opener M Vijay has been named as Gambhir’s replacement for Nagpur Test.
Gambhir was charged under Level 2.4 of the ICC Code of Conduct for pushing out his elbow that hit Australian all-rounder Shane Watson during the first day’s play in the third Test match in New Delhi.
While handing out the one-Test ban on Gambhir, Broad said that he also considered an incident that happened almost a year ago when Gambhir went face to face with Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi in during an ODI Kanpur.
“The ICC has repeatedly told the players that deliberate physical contact between players will not be tolerated. I have also taken into account the previous offences of Gambhir and therefore, I am satisfied that the penalty imposed is an appropriate outcome in the circumstances of this matter,” Broad had said.
“LTTE and Sri Lankan Tamils could not be separated. Though we are against any violence, we should differentiate between violence and right”, he said.
“Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who had assured me no military aid would be supplied to Sri Lanka, had gone back on his word,” he alleged.
Vaiko said, “if the need arises, I will be the first man to take up arms in support of Sri Lankan Tamils. I will gather youths all over the country for this purpose”.The MDMK presidium chairman, M Kannappan, had told the meeting that time would come to demand for a separate Tamil Nadu. In that meeting, a two-hour film on Sri Lankan army’s alleged atrocities against Tamils was screened.
In a statement on Wednesday, AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa had demanded that all LTTE supporters be booked.
Tamil Nadu government’s decision to arrest Vaiko was to make it clear that ruling DMK’s support was only for the suffering Sri Lankan Tamils and not for LTTE.
Vaiko, now an ally of Jayalalithaa, was detained under POTA by her Government in 2004 on his arrival from the United States after he had made a pro-LTTE speech at a public meeting in Tirumangalam in Madurai.
DMK chief M Karunanidhi had condemned Vaiko’s arrest at that time.
This is the second time that Vaiko has been arrested for supporting the banned group, the earlier occasion being during the previous AIADMK government when he was held under POTA.
Vaiko was arrested under the Unlawful Prevention Activities Act, police said.
He was remanded to 14 days judicial custody.
Vaiko said soon after his arrest that his party was for India’s sovereignty. At the same time, it could not allow the Centre to provide arms and ammunition and logistics support to Sri Lankan government ‘to perpetuate war against Tamils’.
Fans have been eagerly awaiting the return of Rajini from Goa to be able to hold a meeting where they will request him once again to enter politics. Rajini returned from the Endhiran shoot this morning and made a stunning announcement
He issued a directive saying in no uncertain terms that no fans or fans should be involved in any political activity. Any fan or fan club doing so will be excommunicated. It will be recalled that when some members of the Coimbatore fan club showed signs of political activity, they were asked to leave the fan club.
It would seem that the Superstar is sending a clear message to fans what his pending decision is going to be!
‘தேசிய திராவிட மக்கள் முன்னேற்றக் கழகம்’ என்ற பெயரில் புதிய கட்சி ஆரம்பித்து கொடியையும் அறிமுகப்படுத்தியிருக்கிறார்கள், கோவையைச் சேர்ந்த சில ரஜினி ரசிகர்கள்.
தமிழகம் முழுவதிலும் உள்ள ரஜினியின் ரசிகர்கள் அவர் அரசியலுக்கு வரவேண்டுமென்று கோரிக்கை விடுத்தும் போஸ்டர்கள் ஒட்டியும் தங்கள் விருப்பத்தை தெரிவித்து வருகின்றனர்.
குறிப்பாக, குசேலன் தோல்விக்குப் பிறகு பலரும் ரஜினியின் செல்வாக்கு சரிந்து விட்டதாகக் கூறிக் கொண்டிருக்கும் இந்த் தருணத்தில் தங்கள் தலைவர் அரசியலுக்கு வந்து தனது செல்வாக்கை நிரூபிக்க வேண்டும் என விரும்புகின்றனர்.
ஆனால் ரஜினியோ இந்த நிமிடம் வரை தனது முடிவு குறித்து தெரிவிக்கவில்லை.
சிவப்பு, வெள்ளை, கறுப்பு என 3 நிறங்களைக் கொண்டுள்ள கொடியில் நடுவில் நீல நிறத்தில் நட்சத்திரம் அதன் நடுவே சூப்பர் ஸ்டார் ரஜினி காந்தின் உருவம் பொரிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளது.
கடந்த வாரமே சிரஞ்சீவியின் பிரஜாராஜ்ஜியம் என்ற பெயரையொட்டி, ரஜினி ராஜ்ஜியம் என்ற பெயரில் ரஜினி ரசிகர்கள் கோவை முழுவதும் போஸ்டர்களை ஒட்டி பரபரப்பை ஏற்படுத்தியிருந்தனர் என்பது நினைவிருக்கலாம்.
கோவா ஷூட்டிங் முடிந்ததும் தனது ரசிகர்களைச் சந்திக்கும் ரஜினி இந்த விஷயத்தில் தனது முடிவை அறிவிப்பார் என்ற எதிர்பார்ரபோடும், தமிழகம் முழுக்க இன்னும் பரபரப்பான அரசியல் போஸ்டர்களை அடித்து வருகிறார்கள் ரஜினி ரசிகர்கள்.
