indicated that theywill not sledge in-form India skipper Virat Kohli in the upcoming four-match Test series beginning February 23 “For us it’s about going out there and playing our brand of cricket Virat Kohli is one of those players if you niggle at him it either makes him better or if you get under hisskin he’ll probably get even better He’s a world classplayer at the moment and for us it’s about going out andplaying the best cricket we can” said Warner at the end of the drawn warm-up game against India A at the Brabourne Stadium here today “We’re not going out there to entertain the idea ofsledging or banter It’s out there and playing good cricketand a great brand of cricket and making sure it’s in thespirit of the game” added Warner who according to India A’s double centurion Shreyas Iyer was among the two players who sledged him Warner said neither did his own performance in two innings in the warm-up game nor lead spinner Nathan Lyon’s outing with the ball disappointed him “I’m not disappointed at all That’s what happens with my game the way I play I’m either going to go on and cash in Or I’m going to get out cheaply That’s the way I play” he said after making 25 and 35 in the two innings “I thought he (Lyon) bowled very well When you’ve got aplayer (Iyer) who is in on a hundred it’s always hard tocontain with short boundaries You’ve got to try and tinker alittle bit think a bit more And out there he did that he asked a few of the players what their thoughts were” said Warner adding “I’m sure that he’ll look at a bit of footage and see what he can do to improve from what he bowled out there” Lyon was smashed for eight sixes by Iyer and lower Krishnappa Gowtham who made 74 in 68 balls Warner credited the home team batsmen “That’s their mentality to apply a bit of pressure on our spinners They did that – credit to them they played very well” He said the area of improvement is in bowling maiden overs “Over here you’re going to have to be prepared to bowl maidens and that’s one thing we have to try and do” He said the team had set plans to counter Ravichandran Ashwin India’s number one spin threat “Well if he says he’s bowling at 60 to 70 per cent thenJesus what else has he got 24 or 25 five-fors in the last 12months bowling at 60 to 70 per cent I’d hate to see 100 percent then We’ve got our plans Everyone’s got their plans against Ashwin He’s a very very good bowler We understand that “There are other bowlers that we have to be mindful of So we know that he will play a crucial a role in this but as I have always said we just have to adapt to the conditions and assess when we’re out there “The guys are in a great frame of mind we’re ready togo We’re pumped And it’s been a much-anticipated series sowe’re really looking forward to getting out there” he addedabout the upcoming rubber The left-handed Warner said that mental toughness was key to doing well in India “It’s been a long time since we’ve played Test cricketthere The last time we played here it was my first time soit was tough It was challenging Me as a player I reallylearned a lot about myself back then I was a bit younger anda bit childish in a way So I’ve learned a lot in the 4 years since then “You’ve got to have your plans in place and you’ve gotto stick to them The biggest challenge here is being mentallyfresh You’ve got to have mental toughness You’ve got to bewilling to grind it out and bat time here you’ve seen the players that come over here and have success – they’re the ones that have great mental toughness “The ball is going to get soft fast They’re going tobowl tight lines early on with the ball swinging and then you’ve got to assess Whether it’s letting the ball come to you rotating the strike attacking or defending the spinners “You’ve got to have that mindset and you’ve got to bepositive with that and you can’t second guess yourself If yousecond guess yourself you’re out so you’ve got to stick toyour plan and adapt

only brand media as bullies and headline seekers when you are facing flak for your comments and opinions Top News Dear Anurag Kashyap you say media is a bully looking for headlines Have you forgotten how this ‘bully’ stood up for you during Udta Punjab Let’s try and dissect your perpetual hate for the media You accuse us of looking for headlines when we reach out to you which makes me ask what exactly is a headline Simply put headline is something that you magnificently created by posting the Whatsapp screenshot containing the number of a female journalist who was only doing her job by trying to get an interview with you This headlining act of yours made sure the journalist’s personal number became public to a large number of strangers in the digital world the repercussions of which she had to face for the rest of the day That was the impact of your headline And talking about impact I am reminded of the infamous Udta Punjab row when our headlines helped your cause something that you now seem to have conveniently forgotten Just to spare you the trouble I have pulled out a few news ‘headlines’ that you had retweeted during that period and I will start with the one belonging to Indian Express On June 22 you retweeted: Udta Punjab leads to no outrage in Punjab there is only empathy http://s.tco/7F45bhwLLQ pictwittercom/CxXEEAqj4F — The Indian Express (@IndianExpress) June 22 2016 Rewinding a little one can see how magnanimously you have retweeted positive headlines of all film critics who heaped praise on Udta Punjab Little more down one will see a retweet of Times Now’s flash headline outlining the observations of the Bombay High Court in the Udta Punjab case Now let’s fast forward a bit You have retweeted all news items that praise your film Raman Raghav 20 Ditto with Akira Quite a predictable pattern So my question is – When did we become the bully When did we become a ‘headlines only’ hungry medium Didn’t we stand up for you your film and the film industry Didn’t we hail you for your extraordinary courage for raising voice against grave injustice being meted out to you by the CBFC But I guess those headlines were in your favour and hence you didn’t brand media then as ‘looking for headlines’ You were more than happy to give interviews attend press briefings and appear on various news channels You were willing to talk to us then and didn’t label our phone calls as a waste of time Why Just because we supported you and your cause needed us then And now when you are facing huge flak for your comments and opinions you want to hide behind the veneer of Twitter and not grant interviews and instead brand us as bullies and headline seekers I accept that you have the right to decide when to talk and when not to depending on which way the ball is swinging but in the case of the journalist who you chose to ‘expose’ you could have simply told her right at the start of the conversation when she wrote “You should talk Anurag”‘ that you are not present in your house That would have put an end to the so-called headline seeking act Also read |Anurag Kashyap clarifies tweets: I didn’t ask PM Narendra Modi toapologise Your tendency to warm up to the media when praised and shoo them away when criticised is reminiscent of the child who angrily walks away with the bat after being given out in a game of street cricket Today I believe not all of what you have tweeted posted or uploaded in relation to the ADHM controversy are praise-worthy and certainly not the part where you tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi Irrespective of whether you asked the PM to apologise or not let me tell you India is not a centralised nation where the power to take decisions is vested only in a single authority As a decentralised government powers have been disseminated to the middle or low-level administration Instead of trying your usual stunt of tagging Narendra Modi for every small issue you should approach the relevant authorities in the state which is exactly what Mukesh Bhatt and others did yesterday with great success Just to make it clear I complain because I expect my government to protect us I question the PM because I have every right to.

Anamika — at home at Kotfatta village of Bathinda district on Wednesday night The kids were tortured for three days and also not allowed to eat And all this was done in the belief that they were possessed by evil spirits All three have been arrested and they would be produced in court on Friday morning According to police the kids’ mother Amarjeet Kaur alias Rosy did not shout for help even once which means that even she was convinced about her kids being possessed And the killings were allegedly carried out under the superstition that Nirmal Kaur’s daughter who failed to bear a child even after six years of marriage would become pregnant Though the plan was also to sacrifice Amarjeet as well police arrived in the nick of time What else is making news: Confirming the incident Kuldeep Singh DSP Bathinda (Rural) said “The incident is shocking indeed that the family overcome by superstition mercilessly murdered their own kids Though the crime occurred yesterday night even now Nirmal Kaur and Kulwinder are still justifying their act saying they did it to get rid of evil spirits inside the kids And the children’s mother Amarjeet Kaur is not complaining about this at all So we have filed an FIR with murder charges against all three During investigation we will find out whether the mother had any role to play” Post-mortem of the kids was done at Bathinda civil hospital and according to Dr Gurmail Singh medical officer “The kids were throttled to death Asphyxia was the cause when throttling was done Pressure on the neck was so strong that there was a fracture of the thyroid and hyoid bones which are deep inside the throat Normally these bones do not get fractured The area near the hip was blue as if they were beaten at that part and even glass pieces were recovered from the mouths of the kids” Earlier it was suspected that the kids had been electrocuted but post-mortem has ruled that out The kids’ bodies have been handed over to grandfather Mukhtair Singh who used to stay apart He was a Class IV employee at the ammunition depot Mukhtair told police that it was sheer luck that Amarjeet was alive as she was the next target Meanwhile according to the police the house was locked from inside since March 8 and no food had been cooked Also none of the family members ate anything including the children Nirmal Kaur who has a gaddi inside her house thought of herself to be a godwoman and convinced her son that after sacrificing the kids all evil forces and demons inside the kids would be exorcised and she would bring them back to life again The DSP said “Inside the house we found a pit dug near the bathroom in which pictures of Mukhtair Singh had been buried as he also had been declared dead as per Nirmal Kaur The kids had been starving for three days and they used to be beaten up with steel spoon on the hips a number of times Also one tubelight had been broken and its pieces stuffed into the kids’ mouths On the last day they were throttled Nirmal’s son did all this along with her mother as per her instructions Interestingly no neighbour intervened on any of the days and when the childrfen’s cries were heard from inside on the evening of March 8 they informed police When we broke open the door we found both the kids dead” The accused will be produced in court on Friday morning Meanwhile democratic rights organisation’s
