Kohli’s storming 70 runs came off of just 29 balls, consisting of 4 fours and 7 sixes.In the post match interview, the 31 year old said:Advertisement “It was a pretty special innings and also being our second wedding anniversery, it was a special gift (for Anushka). I was in the zone and I carried on.”It didn’t just stop there. While heading back to the pavilion with Shreyas Iyer, Kohli was seen blowing a kiss towards Anushka in the sands.

Rohit Sharma and K L Rahul stacked a tremendous 135 run partnership by the 12th over. A hard hitting Sharma scored 71 off 34 with 6 fours and 5 sixes. Rahul, who managed to keep strike till the antepenultimate ball of the first innings, was just 9 runs shy from scoring a century. His 91 including 9 fours and 4 sixes came from 56 balls.Kohli continued- “We had spoken a lot about it. It was about going out there and executing. I had told KL that he needs to bat on and hold one end. Batting first we won and it feels really good.”This was a 2-1 victory for the hosts in the series, after failing to defend a mediocre 170 at the Greenfield Stadium on Sunday.“I know I can contribute in all three formats. I think two guys in the middle with clarity and the way Rahul and Rohit played today was the key today. Batting first, we have been too tight and hesitant, but this pitch allowed us to play freely.” the skipper added.Deepak Chahar, Bhubaneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami all secured two witckes each, as West Indies were packed under 173-8 within 20 overs.“You don’t really feel the pressure when you have 20-25 runs extra on the board.” Kohli and his boys eased into a 67 runs victory over the visitors.As the 2020 T20 World Cup approaches, the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain is hopeful to maintain similar output in the homeland of Aussies. Playing the World Cup in Australia, we will have to figure out how big the boundaries are,” he added.Also read:Virat Kohli explains what attracted him to Anushka Sharma!Read about the history Yuzvendra Chahal created after taking Kieron Pollard’s wicket in the 1st T20 against West Indies!

Martial, Rooney score in ManU win

first_imgBURNLEY, England (AP):Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney made the most of rare starts by scoring first-half goals in Manchester United’s 2-0 win at Burnley in the Premier League yesterday, lifting the team to within a point of the Champions League qualification positions.With Zlatan Ibrahimovic injured and Marcus Rashford rested, Martial started as the centre forward and opened the scoring in the 21st minute at Turf Moor after exchanging passes with Ander Herrera on a quick counterattack.Rooney, playing on the left wing for only his third appearance in two and a half months, scored United’s second goal – with the aid of a slight deflection – from close range in the 39th after Martial had a shot saved.United stayed in fifth place but are now a point behind fourth-placed Manchester City, with the cross-town rivals meeting in an eagerly anticipated derby match at City’s Etihad Stadium on Thursday.Unbeaten in the league in 23 matches, United will go into the derby with confidence and with options in attack in the absence of Ibrahimovic, who sustained a serious knee-ligament injury in the Europa League match against Anderlecht on Thursday.BENCHED FOR ATTITUDERashford played 120 minutes against Anderlecht, so Jose Mourinho began with the 19-year-old striker on the bench and handed a start to Martial, days after the United manager warned the France international that he wanted to see an improvement in his attitude.Martial impressed with his movement and work rate, while his goal is set to cost United €10 million owing to a reported clause in his contract that says Monaco is owed that sum if Martial reaches 25 competitive goals for the English club. Martial moved to United for an initial £36 million (then US$55.5 million) in September 2015.Burnley have one of the strongest home records in the league and Mourinho made eight changes to the team that beat Anderlecht 2-1, making the prospect of an upset somewhat likelier.United – in the middle of a grueling run of games domestically and in Europe – coped well in the circumstances and avenged a frustrating 0-0 draw at Old Trafford in the first game between the teams, when United had 37 shots at goal but couldn’t beat Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton.last_img read more

Man, 23, acquitted of murder

first_imgLANCASTER – A 23-year-old Palmdale man accused of killing an Orange County construction worker in November 2001 was acquitted of murder Thursday in his second trial. The verdict in Victor Ortega’s case, reached after about two days of deliberation, was a turnaround from his first trial in which a different jury deadlocked 11-1 in favor of conviction. “It goes to the vagaries of our judicial system. Twelve different jurors can come up with 12 different conclusions,” said Vito Caruso, Ortega’s public defender. Ortega was convicted in his first trial of a drug charge. Ortega and Rivera met the night before Rivera was found dead in the alley and had been drinking together and with others, authorities said. They had met at a Palmdale motel room rented by a woman who lives in Ortega’s neighborhood, officials said. The woman testified at a preliminary hearing in 2002 that she saw Ortega and the victim walking down a dark alley and five minutes later heard a gunshot in the general direction of the alley, officials said. An autopsy indicated Rivera was shot in the head. His wallet and jacket were taken. Rivera, his brother and a friend were staying in the Palmdale area and had been working on the Wal-Mart store being built in east Palmdale, officials said. karen.maeshiro@dailynews.com (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ortega was accused of killing David Rivera, 25, of Santa Ana, whose body was found Nov.10,2001, in an alley behind the 300 block of East Palmdale Boulevard. Ortega was 17 at the time, but prosecutors charged him as an adult. “I believe the jury reached the correct verdict, and I believe there were problems of proof with the case. I believe jurors were troubled with some of the testimony that they needed to believe,” Caruso said. “In my opinion, two main prosecution witnesses were not the most credible of witnesses.” Deputy District Attorney Fred Mesropi said a key witness could not be found to testify at the second trial. That witness had earlier testified that the defendant had admitted killing the victim, Mesropi said. last_img read more

Smalling unfazed by Sergio Ramos transfer rumours

first_img Manchester United defender Chris Smalling Chris Smalling is not fazed by the prospect of having to compete with Sergio Ramos for a place in the Manchester United first team.United have told Real Madrid the only way they will sign David de Gea is if they give them Ramos in return.Ramos is regarded as one of the best defenders in Europe. The 29-year-old has won the Primera Division with Madrid three times, as well as the Champions League. He has also won the World Cup and the European Championship on two occasions with Spain.Should the Spaniard arrive, Smalling’s place in the team would come under threat.The England centre-half became an established player under Louis van Gaal last season, but does not care if he has to tussle with the likes of Ramos for a place in the team next term.“There is always competition at Manchester United,” Smalling said when asked what effect Ramos’ possible arrival could have on his future.“When I signed there were five centre backs already here.“I had to work hard to get past them. At this club you are always going to be compared with the best and you always play with the best.” 1last_img read more

Keep costly cars in use a long time

first_imgBuying a car with a good track record is of course important, and the magazine, which does not accept advertising and is published by the not-for-profit Consumers Union, names several Honda, Lexus and Toyota models as good bets. But the magazine article and a Consumers Union news release also emphasize our make-them-last strategy. Among the advice: Follow the maintenance schedule in the owner’s manual (skipping even one oil change can damage the engine and accelerate wear). Use only parts and fluids meeting manufacturer specifications (we do, while also shopping around for the repair and maintenance shop with the best combination of price and service). Check the car yourself from time to time, looking for fraying or cracks in belts, and cracks or bulges in hoses. And wash the car regularly, not just for looks but also to help preserve the paint and keep the sheet metal below it from rusting.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Our mantra: Buy only cars we can comfortably pay for with cash, keep up with the maintenance and follow common-sense steps to make them last. The Volkswagen Beetle, alas, was going strong after more than 130,000 miles before copious rains that flooded our street knee-deep ruined it beyond repair. Our cars routinely break 100,000 miles, except a Toyota Corolla we donated to charity in 2003 when we realized that, working part time from home, we did not need two cars. Along with homeownership costs, buying or leasing more car than you can afford or need can derail your finances. “Our family has withstood some potentially damaging events because we had lower expenses and higher savings than we would have had if we had bought the bigger house and the new cars throughout the years,” wrote Nancy Howard of Dodgeville, Wis. After paying off a car loan, the Howards kept their car a few years while regularly saving an amount equal to the car payments. They were able to make a bigger down payment on the next car and eventually buy one for cash. The magazine Consumer Reports, meanwhile, found that, with proper care, many cars today can last 200,000 miles or more with few if any major repairs. An annual survey by the magazine found 6,769 readers with 200,000 miles or more on their vehicles, including 488,000 for a 1994 Ford Ranger pickup. (See the October issue or go to the Web site www.ConsumerReports.org). When comparing the costs of buying and keeping a car for 225,000 miles over 15 years to buying and financing an identical model every five years, Consumer Reports found savings could be more than the original purchase price, and even greater if the savings are invested. My first car, a nine-year-old peeling-blue Ford I bought before my junior year in college, lasted me the two years I needed it to hold a part-time job until graduation. Not bad considering I paid just $50 for the clunker, all I could afford. I also had to carry jugs of water in the car. Every five miles or so, I had to stop, open the hood and pour water into the radiator so the engine wouldn’t overheat. After graduation, I sold the car for $35. I warned the buyer about the car’s condition but he let it overheat and die in the middle of downtown Miami three days later. Caring well for our cars, my wife, Georgina, and I have had only five other automobiles combined in the 40 years since, from a red Volkswagen Beetle I bought new for $1,400 after I started working full time to our current silver Mercedes C-Class four-door sedan we bought in 2001. last_img read more

City officials decry insurance initiative

first_img “It would undo all that has been done under Proposition 103, taking California from one of the highest cost states to get insurance to one of the lowest,” Garamendi said. “This is just an attempt by one company to benefit itself at the expense of California motorists.” Officials with Mercury did not return telephone calls. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A group of Los Angeles officials joined Tuesday with a leading taxpayer advocate to protest a proposed initiative to roll back provisions of Proposition 103, which governs auto-insurance premiums in California. City Councilmembers Wendy Greuel, Bill Rosendahl and Janice Hahn along with Harvey Rosenfield called on Mercury Insurance Co. to withdraw its measure, which would allow insurance companies to set premiums based on where the insured live. “Seventeen years ago, the voters of California spoke out and took matters in their own hands because of the actions of insurance companies,” said Rosenfield, head of the Foundation for Taxpayer and Consumer Rights and the author of Proposition 103. “Today, they are facing a new threat, and the insurance industry will learn that voters do not want any changes.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The initiative Mercury proposes to put on the November ballot would delay the Proposition 103 provisions scheduled to take effect this year requiring companies to offer insurance based on a motorist’s driving record. “According to Mercury Insurance, a ‘good driver’ living in South Los Angeles should pay more than a good driver living in Westwood, simply because of where they live,” Greuel said. Rosendahl said insurance rates for black and Latino women are as much as 16 percent more than for white women because of where they reside. “Car insurance should be determined by a person’s driving record, not a person’s place of residence,” Rosendahl said.
