Shunned by both the BJP and the Congress, the Muslims of Gujarat feel a division of their votes would ultimately help the BJP to retain the power again in the state
With the setback to parties like the BTP and growing religious and socio-economic stratification within the Adivasi community, the prospects of the proverbial Adivasi third front, however, remain distant
The loopholes in the guidelines of the Election Commission of India leaves a lot of scope for candidates to get away with poll expenses way beyond the sanctioned limits
The AAP would not be able to do much in Gujarat, where the BJP is culturally well entrenched and Modi has lost none of his personal charisma
By setting the poll agenda with job and cash guarantees to the unemployed youth and erudite caste math, the AAP may steal a march over the BJP in some key constituencies.
India were handed a 13-run defeat by Pakistan in their Women's Asia Cup 2022 on Friday. Nidar Dar struck an entertaining fifty to push Pakistan to 137 for 6 after skipper Bismah Mahroof opted to bat. In reply, the Indian batters failed to stitch a meaningful partnership and kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Teenager Richa Ghosh tried to inspire a late fightback but couldn't go the distance as India were bowled out for 124 in 19.4 overs. Earlier, Dar (56 not out off 37 balls) and skipper Bismah Maroof (32 off 35) shared a crucial 76-run stand off 58 balls to give the innings a much-needed boost. Off spinner Deepti Sharma (3/27) stood out among Indian bowlers. Pakistan had suffered a shock four-wicket defeat against minnows Thailand on Thursday. Get IND-W vs PAK-W highlights.
Bismah Maroof (PAK): It was an important game for us. We executed well. Nida batted and bowled really well. We just wanted to make a partnership. Nida played a crucial innings and helped us get to a good total. We were looking for gaps. We didn't assess the conditions really well. We all executed the plans well today.
Harmanpreet Kaur (IND): I think in the middle we were trying to give other batters a chance. That cost us today. It was a chaseable target. In the middle overs, we were not able to rotate the strike. For me it is important that whoever is new to the side, they get enough games before the WC. It was a great oppurtunity for others. We don't take any team lightly. It is part of the game. They played good cricket and deserved to win. We need to work on areas and be strong.
