Former Indian coach Greg Chappell claims this Indian legend is the ‘most powerful batsman’…

first_imgImage Courtesy: AFP/PTIAdvertisement botlNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs5v4Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Epo3( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) vx6Would you ever consider trying this?😱8r17fCan your students do this? 🌚3ga2Roller skating! Powered by Firework The Indian cricket team has seen its share of hard hitting batsmen. From the days of Sunil Gavaskar, through the reigning era of Sachin Tendulkar and now the swashbucking opener Rohit Sharma- Team India had plenty of run machines in its lineup from past to present. However, a former coach of the squad, Greg Chappell puts one Indian batsman above all else as the ‘most powerful batsman’, and yes, you guessed it right- its the iconic Mahendra Singh Dhoni!Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFP/PTIA young and zestful MS Dhoni entered the senior team in 2004, just a year before Greg Chappell’s controversial two year tenure from 2005 to 2007 as the coach of the squad. In addition to taking up captaincy and lifting the 2007 World T20 trophy, Dhoni was gaining reverence for his ruthless batting power, something that didn’t go unnoticed by the Aussie gaffer.Chappell was present in a Facebook live session with Playwrite Foundation, where he recalled the thunderous batting prowess of a young Mahi during his early days with the team.Advertisement “I vividly remember that I was left awestruck when I saw him batting for the first time. He was definitely the most exciting cricketer in India at that time. He used to hit the ball from the most unusual positions. He is the most powerful batsman I have ever seen,” Chappell said in the live session.The 71 year old remembered the famous 2005 Sri Lanka ODI series- which solidified Dhoni’s place in the Men in Blue squad for his 183-off-145 not out innings in the 3rd match of the series in Jaipur.Advertisement “I remember his knock of 183 against Sri Lanka and how he tore them apart. It was power hitting at its very best. The next match was in Pune,” Chappell went on about his convo with MS: “why don’t you play along the ground more instead of trying to hit every ball to the boundary’.He continued: “We were chasing 260 odd and were in a good position and Dhoni was playing a contrasting innings to the one he had played just a couple of days before.Following a striking performance in the 3rd ODI, Dhoni landed another impressive during their chase of 262 in the 4th ODI in Pune, scoring a 43-ball-45, and ended the chase with a stunning over boundary.“We still needed 20 runs to win and Dhoni asked me, through 12th man RP Singh if he could hit sixes. I told him not until the target was in single digit. When we needed six runs to win, he finished the game with a six,” Chappell added.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Read which cricketer is the ‘front runner’ for Arjuna Award 2020 Advertisementlast_img read more

Bombardier shareholders to vote on call for more lobbying transparency

first_imgMONTREAL – Pension plan managers and other institutions holding millions of Bombardier shares would like to see the transportation giant go the extra mile for lobbying transparency.The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB), the California Teachers’ Pension Fund and the Florida State Board of Administration (SBA) said they are supporting a proposal by OceanRock Investments asking Bombardier’s board to file an annual report on direct and indirect lobbying activities.The proposal will be voted on Thursday at Bombardier’s annual meeting.SBA governance analyst Tracy Stewart says one can never be too careful given that there are currently a lot of political risks.At the end of fiscal 2017, the CPPIB, the California Teachers’ Pension Fund and the SAB — with assets under management totalling nearly $881 billion — held approximately 7.6 million Class A and B shares of the Quebec multinational.The OceanRock Investments initiative has also been endorsed by the two major shareholder advisory agencies, Glass Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS).Bombardier has urged its shareholders to vote against the motion, arguing that is already reports monthly on its federal lobbying with the Office of the Commissioner of Lobbying of Canada and the information is found on the Quebec Lobbyists’ Registry for provincial activities.Reports on lobbying in the United States are available to the general public through the House of Representatives, it added in its proxy circular released in March.The proposal is unlikely to pass because the Beaudoin-Bombardier family controls 51.5 of the voting rights thanks to the multiple voting shares.Meanwhile, with the exception of the Florida institution, the CPPIB and the California Teachers’ Pension Fund are endorsing the compensation policy for Bombardier’s key executives.In 2017, the company’s top five executives earned total compensation of US$30.8 million, up 12.3 per cent over the prior year. Including board chairman Pierre Beaudoin raises the total payroll to US$33.4 million, up seven per cent.The annual meeting will be the last as a board member after 43 years for Laurent Beaudoin, the architect of its growth as the manufacturer of planes and trains. The meeting is ten days before his 80th birthday.Companies in this report: (TSX:BBD.B)last_img read more

Canadian agriculture ministers briefed on tradewar contingency plan

first_imgVANCOUVER – Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay emphasized the importance of the provinces working together as an escalating trade war with the United States puts some farmers on edge.The minister said his provincial and territorial counterparts discussed trade negotiations and the contingency plan during their conference that wrapped up Friday in Vancouver.There’s already a safety net in place through the $3-billion Canadian Agricultural Partnership launched earlier this year to help farmers manage risks and deal with problems, MacAulay said.“We’re not going to speculate on what might develop or might not develop, but there’s a framework in place with the Canadian Agricultural Partnership now,” he said. “There is a system in place to make sure if we hit any major problems that we’re able to deal with it. That’s why this meeting in the last couple of days is so important.”MacAulay also announced a renewed $55-million AgriRisk Initiatives Program, which he said will help protect farmers against business risks they face.B.C. Agriculture Minister Lana Popham said she was satisfied with the federal plan and said the provinces are united in the context of the trade war.“We stand as one voice, as Canada, in a situation like this,” she said.While U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue has promised that President Donald Trump will restore farmer profitability in that country, he hasn’t specified how and some economists are skeptical that the administration can come up with the billions of dollars necessary to cover losses.Perdue said last month he wasn’t pushing for Canada to do away with its supply management system that controls price and supply of dairy, eggs and chicken, after Trump said he wanted the system dismantled and blasted Canada for charging a 270 per cent tariff on imported dairy products.Ottawa introduced $16.6-billion worth of retaliatory tariffs on some American imports earlier this month in reaction to American tariffs on steel and aluminum.The United States fired back Monday at the Canadian government by launching a formal challenge with the World Trade Organization, at the same time as it filed separate disputes against the European Union, China, Mexico and Turkey over similar counter-tariffs.last_img read more
