Azam hits hundred as Pakistan halts New Zealand's unbeaten run to continue World Cup revival

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
Babar Azam produced a sublime unbeaten century under pressure as Pakistan continued its revival in the World Cup by halting New Zealand's unbeaten run with a six-wicket victory, here Wednesday. Chasing 238 on a tricky Edgbaston pitch which offered vicious turn, Azam (101) and Sohail (68) showed intent, temperament and resolve while batting in Pakistan's must-win game. They raised a 126-run stand for the fourth wicket after Mohammed Hafeez's dismissal off a part-time spinner, yet again, raised eyebrows and Mitchell Santner looked almost unplayable. The situation demanded restraint and Hafeez was set but he threw away his wicket while trying to attack Kane Williamson. This was after Fakhar Zaman (9) was done in by Trent Boult and Imam ul Haq (19) became a victim of Lockie Ferguson. Taking the attack by the scruff of its neck, Azam shifted the gears after completing his half-century and hit some glorious shots off Williamson and Boult to keep the required run-rate under check.

an hour ago  
Business / Business Standard/ General News  
In the absence of a trade deal with China, the US has Plan B ready that would include doing less business with the country and taking in billions of dollars from it every month, President Donald Trump has said. The world's two largest economies are currently negotiating a trade deal for the past several months to end the trade war which began after Trump imposed tariffs on the Chinese imports.

The Rajasthan government on Wednesday reversed the previous BJP dispensation's decision to disinvest the Kali Sindh and Chhabra power plants.
