Sachin Dev Burman “Northeastern folk music influenced me from a very young age Sachin Dev Burman is one of the inspirational musicians in Indian film music The way he fused folk music with his signature style… is amazing So I am aware of the beauty of northeast folk music” said Adnan “Apart from the music the natural beauty (of the northeast) its diverse cultures the people and their hospitality… mesmerised me I have gone to many beautiful places across the globe but I must say that the northeast of our country is the best-kept secret in the world” said the “Lift kara de” hitmaker

pm Stokes was initially named in the 16-man squad for the Ashes tour starting in November but the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) rowed back on the decision a day later (Source: Express Photo by Kevin Dsouza) Related News An Ashes series shorn of Ben Stokes would be a great shame for cricket but England are heading for defeat with or without the troubled all-rounder former Australia batsman Greg Blewett has said Test vice-captain Stokes and opener Alex Hales have been suspended from international cricket indefinitely pending an investigation into an altercation outside a nightclub in Bristol last week Stokes was initially named in the 16-man squad for the Ashes tour starting in November but the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) rowed back on the decision a day later Blewett who struck a century on his test debut during the 1994-95 Ashes series cast doubt on Stokes’s chances of playing a full part in the series “I’m sure they will (sanction him) They are having their internal investigation That will play out” Blewett a 46-test righthanded batsman told Reuters in an interview in Adelaide on Tuesday “It would be a shame if he’s not out here I think everyone wants to play against the strongest possible team “It would be a shame if he doesn’t come out because he’s a bit of a drawcard he’s a world class all-rounder and will leave a massive hole in their team “But even if he was (to come) I think Australia are going to be too good at home anyway With or without Ben Stokes I don’t see a different result but I think England would love to have him in their side” The Sun newspaper published footage of what it said was a brawl between the player and two other people one clutching a bottle The authenticity of the images could not be verified by Reuters Media reports said Stokes who suffered a minor fracture of a finger on his right hand apologised to the ECB for his arrest on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm and described his state of mind as ‘fragile and devastated’ Blewett who was Australia’s fielding coach until stepping down in August has taken on assistant roles with Sheffield Shield side South Australia and the Adelaide Strikers in the ‘Big Bash’ domestic Twenty20 competition Also coach of South Australia’s men’s under-19 side Blewett said he would take a dim view of any player out drinking in the early hours of the morning and days before a match “I wouldn’t be over the moon put it that way because I did see the footage and it’s not great” Blewett said referring to the video posted by The Sun “I’m sure he’s got his side to the story which we haven’t necessarily heard yet “Yeah you would be disappointed I think they were only a couple of days away from the next one-day international so I think any coach would be disappointed with that sort of behaviour” The Stokes incident has revived the debate as to whether curfews should be enforced during series but Blewett said he was against such measures “Generally you’d say players these days are a hell of a lot more professional than what we used to be” said the 45-year-old “These things don’t pop up all that often these days but when they do obviously you need to address it” The potential absence of Stokes would heap further pressure on England’s bowlers and a batting order featuring players like opener James Vince and Dawid Malan who are yet to establish themselves Blewett said Australia and the team’s formidable pace attack led by Mitchell Starc would provide the toughest of initiations “Two or three of those guys in the squad haven’t had a great start to their careers” he said “It’s not going to get any easier when they come out here “And it’s looking like Australia are going to be full strength with their bowling attack so (they) are going to be up against it” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Nihal Koshie | Bhubaneswar | Updated: July 9 2017 10:40 am Malaysia’s Khairul Hafiz had been initially disqualified for a false start (File representational photo) Top News With 8 false starts in the 100 metres including two in the men’s final and one in the women’s final disqualified athletes were upset — some of them pointing fingers at the sensors which had allegedly been wrongly calibrated The Athletics Federation of India (AFI) took pains to explain that the technology used was fail-proof and the latest version of a tried-and-tested version When it came to settling the matter following a protest by Malaysia’s Khairul Hafiz the technical officials had to fall back on high definition footage of a fast moving camera recorded by a Japanese team member Hafiz and Tang Xingqiang of China had been disqualified following false starts in the men’s 100m final but the Malaysian had appealed the decision against him However when the footage from the high definition camera was viewed it came to light that Qatar’s Tosin Joseph had also false-started Joseph was subsequently disqualified The jury also upheld Hafiz’s disqualification “The Japanese had taken footage using a high definition fast moving camera and it also showed that it was a ‘correct foul’ The Technical Director saw the false start (on the video also) and certified it The machine has taken the reading and the video footage taken by the Japanese confirmed false start Moreover the equipment has been certified by the IAAF” said Athletics Federation of India secretary CK Valson However the AFI secretary clarified that the unusually high number of false starts was the result of the latest version of equipment which is highly sensitive to even the slightest movement l; However Malaysian official Jad Adrian Washif said: “We are not happy with the verdict because we think the officials have not looked at the technical aspects Our athlete’s foot or hand did not lose contact with the starting blocks The officials have not been able to explain why Hafiz was disqualified” According to IAAF rules ‘any motion by an athlete that does not include or result in the athlete’s foot/feet losing contact with the foot plates of the starting blocks or the athlete’s hands losing contact with
