Global Cyber Attack Also Struck India, Andhra Pradesh Police Computers Affected

Global Cyber Attack Also Struck India, Andhra Pradesh Police Computers Affected VIJAYWADA — A section of computers of Andhra Pradesh's police departments were affected by a global cyber attack on Saturday, authorities said. Computers in 18 police units in Chittoor, Krishna, Guntur, Visakhatpatnam and Srikakulam districts were affected. However, officials said the day-to-day functioning was not hampered. Director General of Police N. Sambasiva Rao said some standalone computers were affected and they were logged off as a precautionary measure. He said systems using the Windows operating system were hit by the cyber attack. The police chief's computer with Apple's iOS operating system was safe. A global cyber-attack using hacking tools believed to have been created by the US National Security Agency (NSA) has infected tens of thousands of computers in nearly 100 countries. R. Jaya Lakshmi, Superintendent of Police, Tirupati Urban, said that the 'ransomware' encrypted data in some police stations. She said they were not able to access data and that hackers were demanding ransom in digital currency bitcoin to restore access. The officer said that since the data was also stored in different offices in the police administration, they will be able to retrieve it. "The impact is minimal as we also keep offline record of FIRs and other documents," she said. Another officer said they were coordinating with the Home Ministry and were taking all precautions to protect the data. Meanwhile, the Telangana police said its computer systems were not affected. "The TS Police website is functioning perfectly. There is no need to panic", Telangana technical computer services incharge Krishna Prasad said.

Mohammad Aamer stars with pink ball for Essex

Mohammad Aamer stars with pink ball for Essex Pakistan paceman Mohammad Aamer continued his rich seam of form from the Champions Trophy win over India, striking early for Essex using a pink ball on a landmark day for English county cricket. Aamer trapped Middlesex Nick Gubbins lbw as the latest round of county championship matches got underway on Monday. The new day/night format led to the use of the pink ball with a black seam — ideal preparation for England’s Test players for a match with the West Indies from August 17-21 at Edgbaston. ALSO READ: Alastair Cook to Mohammad Aamer: “I want to learn Urdu” Domestic cricket history was also made in Glamorgan’s game with Derbyshire as the latter’s 16-year-old Afghan-born spinner Hamidullah Qadri became the first player born in the 2000s to play Championship cricket. Floodlit cricket is not totally new to England as it first came to their shores on July 23, 1997, in a limited overs match between Warwickshire and Somerset at the same Edgbaston ground where the Test match will take place. The county championship has had one day night game in 2011 between Kent and Glamorgan but got mixed reviews from the players and attendance was not impressive. …and here it is! @iamamirofficial gets his first Essex wicket with Gubbins out lbw. #ESSvMID pic.twitter.com/eNZ08UN7hI — Essex Cricket (@EssexCricket) June 26, 2017 England bowling great James Anderson believes batsmen will not particularly like the experience. “I’ve had no experience with pink balls. I don’t think the batsmen are hugely in favour of it,” said Anderson before play got underway. “All the reports I’ve heard of day-night Test matches are that the twilight period is really difficult to bat in. “It’s great all the England players are available, not just because it’s a pink-ball game, but a round of county games with all the England players available is a stronger one, and probably a more exciting one.” However, Anderson and his fellow bowlers may not have things all their own way as England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) director of cricket operations Alan Fordham told BBC Radio. “If people are expecting it to behave in the same way as a red ball, they’ll be disappointed,” said the 52-year-old former Northamptonshire batsman. “The easiest way to describe it is the pink ball is manufactured in the same way as a white ball, so it’s not a ball that is easy to shine. You can perhaps get a little bit of a sheen on it but nothing like a red ball where you can get a really good polish on it, keep that lasting well and perhaps swinging into 40 or 50 overs. That’s unlikely to happen.” Surrey vice-captain Rory Burns offered a more upbeat tone than Anderson. “It’s an exciting, different challenge. We’ve been practising with the pink ball and getting used to it,” he told BBC Radio. “It’s a very different ball to the red ball, in how it reacts and the seam on it. With spin, you can’t quite see the seam. That is one of the challenges. “It feels a little bit lighter off the bat. The tougher periods will be when the floodlights come into play.” Read More || However, JANTASHAKTI.COM does not confirm this news, I have taken this news from this link !

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Mashrafe Mortaza – Post Match Press Conference, India vs Bangladesh,...

ICC Champions Trophy 2017: Mashrafe Mortaza – Post Match Press Conference, India vs Bangladesh, Semi-Final 2 Q. How do you see this match basically? Was it the total – you could have had a bigger total, or was it the might of the Indian batting?MASHRAFE MORTAZA: No, I think we could have had a big total. The way we had been playing, Tamim and Mushfiqur, they got out at that time, it’s always difficult. That time we had been at the top. But maybe from the ball we have been six, seven runs short. It could have been easily two, three hundred, 30, 40, but suddenly wickets fell from there again, Shakib, and Riyad couldn’t go through. So it’s always difficult from there to score 300. Q. Considering the fact that this team looks up to you as a leader, as a captain, your guidance, so the next big ICC tournament, the 50-over tournament is 2019, and considering you have had a decent performance, decent run with your side whenever they’ve played, so do you see yourself continuing to the 2019 World Cup? I know I am just asking you considering that this dressing room looks up to you.MASHRAFE MORTAZA: I haven’t decided. I mean, I’m still enjoying, so maybe, maybe not. You never know. I have not thought about it. So as long as I enjoy it, I’ll keep playing. Q. Was the strategy to bowl a lot of short balls to Dhawan premeditated, because these guys obviously play short balls really well, because that plan went really awry today?MASHRAFE MORTAZA: No, actually I think we didn’t bowl into the right areas, and when you don’t bowl into the right areas, then the short ball doesn’t affect. That’s the thing. You have to bowl in the right areas, then the short ball will count. So already we know we gave two, three 4′s in first two, three balls, come and bowled the short balls obviously the batters will be on top. So that’s the way it doesn’t work. We have to learn that that sort of wicket, we have to bowl in the right areas as long as possible. Q. Mashrafe, I know that you’ve been saying it’s just another game, and that’s what sports psychologists also say, that it’s just another game. Back home in Bangladesh it was far from just another game. Everybody was extremely excited about it. Were you actually able to treat it as just another game?MASHRAFE MORTAZA: Well, you have to. I mean, we knew that it was going to be a difficult match. But yes, I think if you’re talking about the pressure, I think the way Tamim and Mushfiqur batted, even in the way Sabbir Rahman started, it didn’t look like we are tensed. But once we lose wickets in the middle patches, it becomes difficult. So you are asking that it’s another game, but I think players have to take it easily and have to think the next tour is coming up, South Africa — or no, maybe Australia is coming up, so we have to get ready for it. I mean, once you lose, people will talk, this is normal, so players don’t have to think much about it. Q. Mashrafe, two questions: Number one is that despite you having a pretty decent bowling lineup, the ease with which the Indian batsmen scored 265 or something, was this something for the Bangladesh team, the ease with which they scored, and number two, what is your prediction for the final where India plays Pakistan?MASHRAFE MORTAZA: Look, I think, yes, I think we have a good bowling attack. We always believed that, but sometimes it doesn’t work, especially on that sort of wicket. Once you’re bowling the second half it’s always difficult, but as I said before that, we have to learn a bit more, to stop runs on that sort of wicket, because we can’t just asking wicket all the time, especially against batting order like India. So I know we have to learn a little bit more how can we stop runs and put pressure on the opponent. And the other thing is that both teams, I think, played really good cricket in this tournament, and they both have been to the final. My best wishes will be with India and Pakistan both, but final, you can’t predict. It’s always a difficult match. Q. Four of your batsmen have had very good tournaments, but are you a bit over-reliant on those four because it puts quite a lot of pressure on them and there was no support at all really.MASHRAFE MORTAZA: Yes, we put some pressure all the time. We can’t just asking them all the time Tamim, Mushfiqur and Riyad and Shakib are making runs, but you know, it happens sometimes, but it will be nice that if some youngster can come and join, and normally they did it before, but this time it was hard for them, but hopefully I think that it will be back in England 2019 and they’ll do better than whatever they did this time. Q. What do you have to say about the shot selections by Tamim and Mushfiqur. It’s not the first time, they were in the world Twenty20, some shots were played played at a time when they could have played some other shots.MASHRAFE MORTAZA: Look, it’s difficult to answer that question for me because I know they might have thought this is part-time but they have to go after him. That sort of thing is maybe working in his mind. But they know if you look back to other batsmen, they just think that we still struggled and they keep believing in themselves that they can take on any bowlers, so maybe this way could have been think. But again, it depends on both, what the mindset was there. Q. Mashrafe, you must be disappointed today, but in terms of the journey that the team has been on in getting this far, you’re breaking new ground all the time, so can you just tell us a bit about your pride in the overall team?MASHRAFE MORTAZA: Yeah, obviously the boys should feel proud, but I think in a tournament like this, you have to be, I think, physically or skill-wise not too bad. Yes, we are coming up still. We need to learn so many things. But I think we have got to be a little bit more ready mentally to play this sort of match. I know once you are ready mentally, anything can be possible. I know next time I think the boys will learn, not because — both times in 2015 and 2017, both times they’ve been through the knockout system. So if you can go through next time, hopefully the boys will learn how to get ready mentally. Read More || However, JANTASHAKTI.COM does not confirm this news, I have taken this news from this link !

ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 going to be biggest and best...

ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 going to be biggest and best yet For England’s women, the ICC Champions Trophy has been a huge benefit © Getty ImagesI am so excited ahead of this World Cup in England. It’s going to be the biggest and best yet. Gone are the days when you could easily predict the finalists as the gap between the nations is closing and there are some brilliant players to watch on all sides. For England’s women, I think the ICC Champions Trophy has been a huge benefit. The limelight has been away from the girls going into the tournament and has been very much focused on the men’s game and it’s allowed the girls to go under the radar a little bit. But now that Champions Trophy has ended and the women’s squads are together, they will start to get the attention. They’ve enjoyed good preparation time away from the spotlight and that’s always a good thing for a team going into a major event, especially with England playing at home. Shane Bond: Women’s cricket in pursuit of attaining new highs I never played a 50-over World Cup in England and for me a tournament got real when we met up and boarded the plane. It’s going to be different for the England team this time as they are playing at home and will have spent a lot of time together recently and will have been playing the English season. It will probably start to get real for them when they meet up, get on the coach and get into that team bubble. It can work for and against you playing in a home World Cup. The great thing about playing away from home is you can keep in that bubble and keep the team really tight. At home there will be so many more distractions. It’s important they see their family and friends, but how much? And how much time are they allowed away from the group as well? I’m sure that’s something that Mark Robinson and Heather Knight will be mindful of as it is really important the girls get time away from the game, as long as that’s managed and done appropriately. Women’s World Cup 2017: England confident of a good show at home I really hope that the crowds come out and support, not only England, but all of the great matches we are going to see around the country. My experience of England is they love playing at home, running out in front of big crowds and the television cameras so I really hope and think the big match atmosphere will work in their favour. I hope the crowds get behind them, I hope they see it as a positive, embrace the competition and want to play well for the crowds. When you are successful and you have that sort of support behind you there is no better feeling. The warm-up matches are treated differently by different teams. Some teams like to play their whole squad, but when I was involved I always took them seriously and I don’t think I’ve ever done anything half-hearted in my life. I always wanted to win and score as many runs as I could. Whenever I went to a World Cup the first warm-up game was like the first game of the tournament and you start as you mean to go on. You had the same batting orders that you’d have in the World Cup and I think it’s an opportunity to send good messages out. The psychological edges you can get from practice matches as well – getting the top players out or hitting the best bowlers for runs – that sometimes sets you up for later on in the tournament. Before this event they are playing against the other countries so that gives you a reason to play every game properly. The one thing everyone is conscious of is not getting injured ahead of a major tournament, but you’ve got to put that to the back of your mind and sometimes the more you think about those sorts of things the more they tend to happen. You have to focus on every game right from the start and I’d always being emphasising that with the team. I think it is important England get off to a good start and then they’ll be able to play with confidence throughout. They are playing a slightly different style of cricket as Mark [Robinson] wants them to go out there and play with freedom and for them to do that in the first game against India, with the pressure of it being a World Cup game, it is important they get that good start. But, it’s not the end of the world if they don’t. A lot of teams I’ve seen in the past have almost had an advantage in an early defeat, which has meant they’ve had to dig deep. You don’t want to be playing your best cricket too early in the tournament. It’s the team that peaks at the right time that you have to be wary of. It’s all about winning that first game and moving on to the next game with points in the bag and moving up the table. They’ll want to play in a certain style, but a wins a win in my book. It’s been interesting to watch Pakistan men win the Champions Trophy. They started so poorly, but they played their best games at the right time and that’s the art of tournament cricket – to win games when you really need to with your best players performing. The best news I heard before the tournament was that a lot of games will be televised and every game will be live-streamed. Having everyone in the world able to watch this tournament means we can reach a huge number of people. The ICC Women’s World Cup Qualifier in Sri Lanka last year received 18 million hits, so to think what figures this Women’s World Cup can reach is incredible. We have this fabulous opportunity to really spread the world and we are so lucky at the moment – we’ve got so many good role models within the game, so many good players and this sets up this World Cup to be the best ever and the most watched we’ve ever seen. It’s exciting to think that someone over the next few weeks can play their best cricket and become a household name. That’s such a fantastic prospect and why all the players should embrace this tournament. They have the biggest stage ever to perform on with millions of people watching globally and you’ve got the opportunity to become a household name. Hopefully, some of the players will take that chance with both hands and we’ll have the new stars of the game coming to our living rooms, which is what we want to see to make the women’s game stronger. This tournament promises to be exceptional, exciting and is exactly what we need to inspire young girls around the world. Over the next four weeks they can find their heroes and appreciate what a fantastic sport cricket is for women to play. I hope it inspires them to pick up bats and balls, go out and play and who knows, they could become the stars of the future. This content was first published in www.icc.cricket.com.
