Bairstow and Warner show demolish RCB by 118 runs

first_imgHyderabad: Jonny Bairstow and David Warner smashed sensational centuries to guide Sunrisers Hyderabad to a comprehensive 118-run win over struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore in an Indian Premier League match here Sunday. Englishman Bairstow struck 114 from just 56 balls while Warner carried his bat for a 55-ball 100 in a record 185-run first-wicket partnership to post a mammoth 231 for two after being put into bat. Bairstow punished RCB with 12 fours and seven sixes while Warner hit five fours and as many sixes in his 55-ball knock. With a gigantic target to eclipse, RCB needed a rollicking start but the visitors’ chase never got going as they kept on losing wickets to be bundled out for 113 in 19.5 overs. It was RCB’s third consecutive loss in the tournament, while Sunrisers registered their second win out of three games this season. Playing his first IPL match this season, Afghan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi did the early damage as he picked up three quick wickets — two in his second over — as RCB’s slumped to 22 for three by the end of the fourth over. Nabi first accounted for Parthiv Patel and then came back to remove Shimron Hetmyer and dangerous A B de Villiers in the fourth over. To make matters worse for RCB, Sandeep Sharma then dismissed skipper Virat Kohli in the first delivery of the seventh over. As if that was not enough, Shivam Dubey was run out in the very next ball as RCB’ chase fell by the wayside. At that stage the visitors slumped to 35 for six in 7.3 overs. From there on, it was almost an impossible task for RCB to get back into the game and Colin de Grandhomme (37) and 16-year-old Prayas Ray Barman (19), the youngest player to make his IPL debut, just did their bit to delay the inevitable. Nabi starred with the ball for Sunrisers with figures of four for 11, while Sandeep (3/19) too was not far behind, scalping three wickets. Earlier, RCB captain Kohli’s decision to put Sunrisers in backfired as all his bowlers were taken to cleaners by Bairstow and Warner who became the first pair in IPL history to post three consecutive hundred-run stands. Bairstow and Warner bludgeoned the bowlers, bettering the earlier highest of 184 between KKR’s Gautam Gambhir and Chris Lynn in the 2017 edition against Gujarat Lions. Sunday’s innings was also only the second time in IPL history in which two batsmen scored a hundred each. Bairstow was finally out in the 17th over off Yuzvendra Chahal as he went for yet another big shot but only got the leading edge for Umesh Yadav to take a running catch. He reached to his hundred in 52 balls.last_img read more

Morocco Ranks Second in Cyber Security in MENA Region report

first_imgCasablanca – Right behind Oman, Morocco is second in the North African and Middle Eastern region in terms of Cyber security, based on a project that has identified 17 performance indicators in 5 categories.Morocco has been ranked second behind Oman in the Cyber Security Global Index (GCI), on the sidelines of the International Telecommunication Union congress (ITU), held in Bangkok, Thailand, under the theme “A conversation that matters.”With a total score of 0.559 points, Morocco came second after Oman (0.765 points). The kingdom, which has the highest rate of connectivity, comes ahead of its North African neighbors, namely Egypt and Tunisia, whereas Sudan ranks fifth. The ranking takes into account 17 performance indicators in five categories that are legal, technical, organizational, as well as capacity building and cooperation. According to the GCI, the goal is to publish five other regional indexes to eventually constitute an overall index.“The GCI project is a joint effort between ITU and ABI Research, a market intelligence company specializing in global technology markets,” stated representatives of the organizations.As stated in the joint agreement, the Telecommunication Development Bureau (TDB), responsible for supporting developing countries in ITU, ABI Research and Ibra College of Technology (ICT), are developing mechanisms of classification, performing primary research and national reference capacities.The purpose of the GCI is to promote government strategies at the national level and ensure their implementation in all industries and sectors.It is also aimed at integrating security into the base of technological progress and promoting a global culture of cyber security. In this sense, some countries like Morocco have in recent years developed strategies to enhance computer security.According to Daily LaVieEco, only 11 African countries currently have what is called a CERT, Computer Emergency Response Team, an organization that “handles computer security incidents.”Morocco, along with Tunisia, Sudan and Egypt, are the only Arab countries to have a CERT team.© Morocco World News.
