IPL 2022 : Under­fire Sunrisers Hydera­ bad opener Abhishek Shar­ ma struck form at the right time as Chennai Super Kings suffered its fourth consecu­ tive defeat in the Indian Pre­ mier League at the D.Y. Patil Stadium here on Saturday.
The former India un­ der­19 batter’s aggressive 75 (50b, 5×4, 3×6) made light of a tricky target of 155 runs set by Super Kings, and Sunris­ ers Hyderabad cruised to an eight­wicket win with 14 balls to spare. The win helped Sunrisers open their account in this edition.
Stroking with panache
On a surface where the Sup­ er Kings batters struggled, Abhishek stroked the ball with panache and took the pressure off captain Kane Williamson. Their 89­run stand for the first wicket took the game away from Super Kings.
Abhishek teed off by flay­ ing Maheesh Theekshana ov­ er mid­wicket for a six and never looked back. Abhish­ek enjoyed a slice of luck when on two with Shivam Dube failing to latch on to a difficult chance as the south­ paw pulled Mukesh Choud­ hary.
Abhishek’s belligerence rubbed off on Williamson who played with more free­ dom until he hit Mukesh straight to Moeen Ali at cov­ ers. Rahul Tripathi hastened
the end with a quickfire un­ beaten 39.
Earlier, Williamson took the tried and tested route, asking Super Kings to bat.
His bowlers, especially the spinners choked the batters and never allowed them to dominate. Though Ruturaj Gaikwad got into double figures, he failed to convert it into a big

 



Delhi police hunt down Maoist leader absconding for 26 years

 

The Delhi police on Friday arrested a Maoist leader who was absconding for 26 years. The accused, Kishun Pandit, was wanted for the murder
of a Bihar police officer. Dheeraj Kumar, Joint CP (Crime), said the police re­ ceived a tip­off on April 7 that Pandit had been hiding on the outskirts of Farida­ bad, Haryana with a fake
identity. He was a member of IPF Maale — a Maoist outfit active in the 1990s in Bihar — and the second­in­command of the outfit’s Patna unit. His family had performed his fake cremation when he fled
Bihar in 1996.
The police traced Pandit
to an area near a CNG pump at Prahladpur in south­east Delhi, the police said.
While in Faridabad, the accused used to project him­
self as Sulender Pandit. The police verified his details through his land records and his wife’s Aadhaar card. Ma­ ny fake IDs were recovered from Pandit’s possession, said the police.


Improved GSLV to be ready by this year

Modifications have been made to its cryogenic upper stage as per panel’s recommendations

The Geosynchronous Satel­ lite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) with improvements added to its cryogenic upper stage (CUS) is expected to be ready in the second half of this year.
A high­level panel which examined last year’s failed GSLV­F10/EOS­03 mission had recommended mea­ sures for making the CUS more robust. Indian Space Research Organisation’s Li­ quid Propulsion Systems Centre (LPSC) is tasked with making the required modifi­ cations to the cryogenic en­ gine­powered upper stage of the GSLV Mk II rocket.
A senior official of the Vik­ ram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC), ISRO’s lead unit on launch vehicles, says the next GSLV flight will be held once the modifications are incorporated.
The GSLV­F10 mission on August 12, 2021 was designed to place the earth observa­
tion satellite EOS­03 in a geo­ synchronous transfer orbit, but the upper stage of the rocket malfunctioned, forc­ ing the space agency to abort the mission. A national­level Failure Analysis Committee (FAC) later concluded that a leak in a Vent and Relief Valve (VRV) had led to a low­ er build­up of pressure in the Liquid Hydrogen (LH2) pro­ pellant tank, leading to a failed mission.
To avoid leaks
Modifications planned in­ clude a mechanism to en­ sure sufficient pressure in the tank before the engine burns and strengthening of the VRV to avoid leaks.
On Thursday, Union Mi­ nister of State for Science & Technology Jitendra Singh informed the Rajya Sabha in a written reply that compu­ ter simulations as well as multiple ground tests, “closely simulating the con­ ditions in the GSLV­F10 flight, had validated the ana­
lysis of the FAC.” He points out that the satellite for the next GSLV mission is expect­ ed to be ready for launch in the fourth quarter of 2022 and the mission failure is not likely to delay “related pro­ jects”.
The FAC, whose report was published in March, points to a leak in the VRV as the underlying reason for the failure. Pressure build­ up in the liquid hydrogen (LH2) propellant tank was low when the upper stage engine was to ignite. This caused the fuel booster tur­ bo pump inside the LH2 tank, which feeds the main turbo pump of the engine to malfunction, affecting the flow of propellant into the engine thrust chamber.


Iran President vows to continue nuclear development projects

Tehran imposes sanctions on another 16 U.S. officials

 

President Ebrahim Raisi said on Saturday that Iran will continue nuclear develop­ ment activities as talks to re­ vive Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers remain stalled, state media reported.
Speaking at a ceremony marking Iran’s national day of nuclear technology, the hard­line President said his administration will support an acceleration in research of peaceful nuclear
technology.
“Our knowledge and tech­
nology in the nuclear field is not reversible. Iran’s (contin­ uation of ) research in peace­ ful nuclear fields will not de­ pend on others’ demands or viewpoints,” said Mr. Raisi.
During Saturday’s cere­ mony, Iran displayed its new civil nuclear achievements, including several medical isotopes, agricultural pesti­ cides, detoxification equip­ ment and nuclear fuel material.
Meanwhile on Saturday,
Iran imposed symbolic sanc­ tions on more U.S. offiicials over their roles in harming Iran, the country’s Foreign Ministry said.
The 16­person list includ­ ed George William Casey, former commander of American forces in Iraq; CENTCOM former comman­ der Joseph Votel; former commander of American forces in Afghanistan Austin Scott Miller; U.S. Ambassa­ dor to Lebanon Dorothy Shea and others from the Trump administration.
