In Uttar Pradesh, especially, encounter killings have become the new normal and have gained wider acceptability among civilians as well as law enforcement agencies in the past few years.
The culture of rifles among Adivasis, aided by the ever-increasing deployment of paramilitary forces, has permanently mutated the central Indian forests in Chhattisgarh.
The highest levels of government keep encouraging police, paramilitary and army units to eliminate "undesirables" even as the public cheers the rogue elements from the sidelines
The secret killings are not the first cases of alleged extrajudicial killings in Assam. Since the 1990s, individual cases of extrajudicial killings have been reported in the state.
Inconsistent batting has once again hurt Punjab Kings as they slumped to a 20-run defeat against Lucknow Super Giants at the MCA Stadium in Pune in an IPL 2022 tie on Friday. After Kagiso Rabada (4/38) wreaked havoc in the middle overs and restricted LSG to 153/8, lack of partnerships from the batters cost them in the chase. Captain Mayank Agarwal got PBKS to a good start but once he was dismissed for 25, no one got going despite getting starts. Shikhar Dhawan was out cheaply while Liam Livingstone threw away his wicket. Bhanuka Rajapaksha too didn’t frighten the bowlers much while Jonny Bairstow could only manage 32. Krunal Pandya and Dusmantha Chammera and Mohsin Khan bowled perfect lengths along with wickets to ensure LSG stay in the game all throughout.

(SCORECARD | POINTS TABLE | RESULTS AND SCHEDULE)
I have been bowling well. For the last 7-8 months, I have been working hard. Special mention to Rahul Sanghvi. The results everyone can see as I have tried to improve skillwise. I have been trying to increase my height with my release and something on my grip. I haven't been contributing much with the bat but is a long tournament and going forward I will look to contribute with the bat.
KL Rahul (LSG): I was disappointed and fuming at the end of the first innings. Stupid cricket with the bat. We did talk that we can defend 160 as this wasn't a great pitch. Krunal has been brilliant throughout the tournament. Bowling economically is important but he has been giving us two three wickets in the middle overs. Bishnoi is an aggressive bowler.
Mayank Agarwal (PBKS): I think we just kept losing wickets. We had batsmen who were set and we kept getting out. So many soft dismissals for us. It is disappointing and we have to face the truth. We didn't bat well enough and we were below par with the bat.
A six and a four of the first two balls from Rishi Dhawan but Avesh Khan produces four dots to send LSG to third in the table. LSG win by 20 runs.
Punjab Kings slide further. Kagiso Rabada slices a short ball from Mohsin Khan and finds Ayush Badoni at deep cover. Another wicket in the over. Rahul Chahar finds Badoni in the last ball. Mohsin finishes with 3/24. 117/8 (17.2)

The last 20-25 minutes have been devastating for LSG. From 98/1 in 13th over to 111/6 in the 16th, Lucknow Super Giants have fallen apart drastically. Can PBKS restrict them under 150?

Lucknow Super Giants: Quinton de Kock(w), KL Rahul(c), Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Jason Holder, Dushmantha Chameera, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan
Punjab Kings: Mayank Agarwal(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Jitesh Sharma(w), Rishi Dhawan, Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Chahar, Sandeep Sharma, Arshdeep Singh
Punjab Kings have won the toss and they will bowl first.
The pitch has a good covering of grass and bowlers will get an adequate bounce on this strip. Bowling at lengths will be key for the bowlers.
Lucknow Super Giants’ Marcus Stoinis (986) and Deepak Hooda (978) are both approaching 1000 IPL runs. LSG are full of classy all-rounders like Jason Holder and Krunal Pandya. That gives Lucknow a clear edge in terms of team balance.
There will be no friendship when KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal walk out to toss. Rahul (368) is the second-highest run-getter this IPL season and Mayank Agarwal needs to play his part in this crucial game in IPL second stage.
Hello and welcome to another IPL 2022 live match between Punjab Kings and Lucknow Super Giants. With the race for IPL 2022 playoffs intensifying, the PBKS vs LSG tie is expected to be a cracker with both teams known to play aggressive cricket.
