R Ashwin has been trusted with the new ball at times Pandya in between has done the job in the middle overs In fact the skipper hasn’t had to worry when one of his frontline pacers went for runs as for instance in the Melbourne T20I when he bowled both Nehra and Bumrah for the first six overs thus saving the spinners for later In Melbourne Pandya returned 1-17 in his 2 overs and while he was a touch expensive it still allowed the spinners to do the job as they picked 3 wickets between them and turned the game on its head Using Pandya after the powerplays has also allowed Dhoni to hold Ravindra Jadeja back bowling both spinners in tandem or alternating their spells with the all-rounder Now combine this with the manner in which Dhoni employed Yuvraj and Raina — the duo bowled 21 overs in 11 matches at nearly 2 overs per match With these three accounting for approximately 5 overs per match since January the Team India captain has been able to use his strike bowlers for shorter spells and at times when they can make the most impact Using Ashwin within the first six overs or holding the pacers back for the death for example It is no secret that Dhoni is at his best when he has loads of bowling options at his disposal And this is where the second point assumes significance An all-rounder who can hurl the ball at 135-plus consistently and hit the big shots on order Pandya is a rare find for Indian cricket Therefore the importance of him regaining confidence after a poor first over in Adelaide cannot be undermined It happens often on the international stage; remember KL Rahul’s horrific shot during his MCG debut a year earlier This is where a youngster needs the skipper and team management to back him the most Just as the Karnataka opener found his touch in Sydney immediately afterwards in the same manner Pandya too found his groove albeit in a much shorter time frame Happily enough the all-rounder’s expressions over the course of the last seven weeks have given a peek into his persona There is a smile ever present on his face even though behind the helmet there is a resolute mind that wants to put the ball far over the fence His raging T20 strike-rate is proof enough of that Pandya will gladly throw himself around on the field in pursuit of the ball inspired perhaps by that buzz that comes as a result of the attention surrounding an Indian cricketer This is someone who enjoys the limelight and has enough antics up his sleeve to keep the cameras busy In the lead-up to the 2016 World T20 with the Men in Blue gaining momentum Pandya’s arrival on the scene has not been played up But make no mistake the T20 format agrees with his style of play and this tournament could well be his stepping-stone to greater things Written by Express News Service | Kolkata | Published: July 16 2013 2:23 am Top News The West Bengal Human Rights Commission today recommended that the state government pay Rs 2 lakh compensation to Shiladitya Choudhurya farmer from West Midnapore who was dubbed a Maoist and a terrorist by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee The commission said the actions of the government and Mamata had caused damage to Shiladityas social dignity During a public rally in Belpahari in August 2012Mamata had called Shiladitya a Maoist and a terrorist for asking what action the government was taking to check rising fertiliser prices Shiladitya was later arrested by the police and the case is continuing Shiladitya is still fighting charges such as seditiondisrupting public tranquillityobstructing government servantsetc He has to appear before the court regularly At other timeshe is busy farming and occasionally works as a bus conductor The WBHRC today asked the state government to pay Rs 2 lakh to Shiladitya within two months It was not immediately known whether the government would comply with the recommendation Shiladitya told reporters: The Maoist tag is what hurts me most I wish I had a clean slate on that count The money is not so important Even during the panchayat pollswhen I went to cast my votepeople identified me with the Maoist tag?Amrit was in an inebriated state and abused police officers on the spot. if he already has as he claimed, "Odd-Even will come when the air-quality is beyond severe but what about other days?professor of Chemistry and media coordinator of the college.
