Bangladesh and combined with Mushfiqur Rahim in a record partnership on the second day of the first Test against New Zealand at the Basin Reserve on Friday Shakib (217) and captain Mushfiqur (159) stubbornly denied New Zealand in perfect conditions at the Basin Reserve as they produced a 359-run fifth-wicket partnership and batted their side into a position where they are unlikely to lose the game The previous highest partnership for any wicket for Bangladesh was the 312 by Tamim Iqbal and Imrul Kayes for the first wicket against Pakistan at Khulna in April 2015 Shakib brought up his double century just the third by a Bangladeshi batsman when he punched a Colin de Grandhomme delivery behind square for his 30th boundary then surpassed Tamim’s record score of 206 with a push for a single to mid-off A weary Shakib eventually chopped a Neil Wagner delivery on about 15 minutes before the close of play before the visitors ended the day on 542 for seven with Sabbir Rahman 10 not out after Mehedi Hasan was caught off the last ball for a duck Thursday’s first day was disrupted by regular bouts of rain and then bad light with the visitors laying a solid foundation of 154-3 after being asked to bat on a green-tinged pitch Shakib was on five when play resumed on Friday with Mominul Haque on 64 Mominul however did not add to his overnight score when he was caught by wicketkeeper BJ Watling off Tim Southee to reduce the visitors to 160-4 though that was New Zealand’s only success until late in the final session Both Shakib and Mushfiqur brought up their centuries before tea with the former tucking a Wagner delivery off his legs for a single and the latter guiding a Southee ball down to third man for his 17th boundary Shakib had a let off on 137 when he appeared to have been caught by a diving Watling down the leg side but television replays showed the ball had momentarily touched the ground as the wicketkeeper landed and the batsman was recalled He was also dropped by a diving Ross Taylor at backward point on 189 from Trent Boult who eventually ended the pair’s stand about 40 minutes before stumps when he had Mushfiqur caught behind by Watling Bangladesh’s previous record for the fifth wicket was 267 that Mushfiqur and Mohammad Ashraful scored against Sri Lanka in Galle in March 2013 For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top

Top News Manolo Sanchez was in his hotel room when he looked at the clock It was time for Monica Puig’s gold medal match in the women’s tennis singles final at the Rio Olympics Immediately the San Antonio FC striker asked his Jamaican teammate to turn on the television to the channel broadcasting the match As the match went on both footballers started cheering for Puig And once she won the Puerto Rican was ecstatic “I was jumping all around the room” he says smiling Meanwhile back in Puerto Rico the Federacion Puertorriquena de Futbol general secretary Ignacio Rodriguez started making arrangements for the sport’s governing body in the country to celebrate Puig’s return home Puig’s was the country’s first ever Olympic gold Yet more importantly her victory put the tiny island nation on the world map That particularly was the one facet the country’s footballers appreciate the most “The Puerto Rican identity was realised again” asserts Sanchez Over 22 years ago ahead of Puerto Rico’s 1994 World Cup qualifying campaign the then coach was forced to recruit players born and residing in the United States As a US Territory players born in the US mainland were eligible to play for the Caribbean country’s national team Since then emerged a sense of a missing identity within the national team “Foreign based players became the Puerto Rican team So the local players started wondering what about us We’re good players too Why don’t we get picked” mentions Andres Cabrero “The federation recognised that And now this is the first generation of Puerto Rican footballers where a majority of the players are from the island itself” The group had just flown 14 hours from New York and had barely been at the hotel for over an hour when a member of the support staff voices a solitary instruction: “Be ready for practice in an hour” There is a sense of national pride “The federation earlier looked more at foreign born players of Puerto Rican descent Those players may not be as pressed to perform well because they’ve never really lived in the country The local players though realise the value of playing for our country every time we wear the jersey” asserts Cabrero who plays his club football for Kultsu in Finland Then there is the question of actually being recognised as a Puerto Rican especially since the island is still considered a US territory In May the team had actually hosted the United States for a friendly losing 3-1 eventually but opening eyes towards the idea of the country being independent “People at least in the US started realising that this is something different” says Rodriguez A month later a second division club team in the US Puerto Rico FC which is incidentally owned by NBA star Carmelo Anthony was made to play the Puerto Rican national team in a friendly in New York “That was on the Puerto Rican day parade It was a good for the American public to see our culture and realise our country’s own identity” he adds Agreeing to come to India is also a way for the federation to promote its players and country “Maybe somebody here can get a club contract” Rodriguez says The players too were keen on the idea especially since

through the Ranji Trophy and was part of the victory celebrations in Indore where Gujarat humbled the mighty Mumbai in the final Talking more about the former India international Axar says RP played the role of a mentor to perfection The left-arm pacer is well past his prime but made a telling impact with the ball especially against Jharkhand in the semifinal picking up a nine-wicket haul in the game “He played just five games but got us the key wickets when the team wanted However it was outside the field where he made the maximum impact He is a bowler who understands the mind of the batsmen very well and that is what we all picked up from him He was very forthcoming in sharing his vast knowledge and helped the players during training on his own be it the bowlers or batsmen The team’s

in the pan It is a side that has shown gradual improvement which is evident from its success last season in the 50-over Vijay Hazare Trophy Gujarat have also won the domestic T20 title (Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy) twice in the last five years “The major reason why we have been successful is that we have been able to maintain continuity from the U-19 to the senior level The majority of the players have been playing together since junior cricket and it helps when you graduate together to the senior level “If you noticed we also did not make a lot of changes in the playing eleven barring the times when I was away on national duty or Parthiv bhai or Jasprit That also helped Each player knew that he won’t be dropped after failure in three-four matches” said Axar The injury has come at a

circumstances at a private school in Ghaziabad seeking a CBI inquiry into the incident A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra agreed to hear it on September 18 Initially the court said there was no reason why it should consider the matter when the HC was already seized of it But the petitioner’s counsel said the investigation had been stayed by an order of the Allahabad High

the drubbing received in Delhi the BJP is taking no chances with its next electoral battle The party has decided to begin its Bihar assembly campaign well in advance Party President Amit Shah and Home Minister Rajnath Singh will land in Patna on 14 April to rally the troops to take on the formidable Nitish Kumar-Lalu Yadav alliance which includes the Congress party Though the 14 April event is not meant to be a public rally the party leadership hopes to gather around one-and-a- half lakh grassroot workers from all parts of the state The state BJP leadership hopes that a successful mobilisation of party workers and cadre will give it the momentum and electrify the popular mood Assembly elections in the state are due in October-November Representational image AFP This would be Amit Shah’s first major appearance in Bihar His last visit in January was a low-key one involving the holding of strategy sessions with leaders and interacting with party workers in Patna Shah is known for his aggressive approach and can thus be expected to launch a frontal attack on Nitish Kumar in his address to the rank and file Nitish Kumar’s personalised political/ego battle against Narendra Modi is well known It would thus be very interesting to see how Modi’s Man Friday wades into the battle in his first political outing The Bihar poll is a prestigious battle for the BJP It is equally so for the forces ranged against it The Left may also join the Nitish-Lalu combine this time If that happens it would be the first time when so many political parties will formally join hands in an electoral alliance to challenge Modi Besides testing Modi’s might vis-a-vis the Nitish-Lalu-Congress alliance this election will present the BJP with its first realistic chance of leading a government in Bihar Second a victory here would restart the BJP’s bandwagon – which went into reverse gear after the Delhi assembly election results But if the BJP loses Bihar the opposition to it at the national level will also become aggressive Modi will then risk becoming a weakened Prime Minister for the rest of his term Given the high stakes the BJP leadership both at the centre and in the state has begun poll preparations very early Since the Bihar assembly session is on state party leaders are using their weekends to conduct outstation tours to mobilise the cadre and address public meetings in the hinterland Former Deputy Chief Minister and State BJP legislature leader Sushil Modi for instance was in Bettiah and in the tribal areas of Narkatiaganj last Saturday and Sunday These tours are also being used to activate party workers at the district and block levels Mobilisation for the 14 April rally is also underway By choosing to target Nitish Kumar barely a month-and-a-half after his return to power the BJP it seems wants to deny him a free run Kumar has only five-six months to deliver results before the election code kicks in If he is forced to spend more time on political management and less on governance Kumar’s famed administrative skills could be questioned In any case in his second term (2010-15) Nitish has not been able to deliver much on the ground unlike his first term Recent television footage of unhindered mass copying at the matriculation board examination has damaged his governance image His dependence on Lalu Yadav for survival and prospective alliance with him has made the upper castes uncomfortable In deciding to hold its rally on Ambedkar’s birth anniversary the BJP wants to send a message to Dalits that it cares for them Modi himself referred to Ambedkar in his latest edition of Mann Ki Baat where he dealt with the land acquisition issue The BJP has Dalit leader Ram Vilas Paswan on its side and had also backed Mahadalit Jitan Ram Manjhi in his fight against Nitish Kumar Though Manjhi has floated his own party he is indirectly backed by the BJP Manjhi is planning to hold a rally in Patna’s Gandhi Maidan on 20 April The BJP and its allies won 31 out of 40 seats in the Bihar Lok Sabha polls Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) was reduced to two and Lalu’s RJD to four with both his wife Rabri and daughter Misa losing the elections Congress won two seats

combine had won an unprecedented three-fourths majority The BJP had won 91 of the 102 seats it contested and the JD(U) won 115 out of 142 The strike rate for the BJP was 90 percent and for the JD(U) 85 percent But they have fallen apart and the resulting realignment of forces makes the next Bihar election unpredictable The BJP’s last major public meeting in Patna before the Lok Sabha polls – the Hunkar rally – had hit the headlines for two reasons: it was the first Modi rally in Bihar (Nitish Kumar had not allowed Modi to campaign there while he was in alliance with BJP); and the rally venue itself was rocked by bomb blasts This time around the Kumar administration would like to see any rally is peaceful Shah and Rajnath Singh plan to prepare the pitch for Modi to take over when the
