India beats Bangladesh to win Test

first_img TRAPPED BY LBW CAUGHT AT MID-OFF Mahmudullah and Rahman put on 51 for the sixth wicket. The latter was trapped lbw by Ishant Sharma (2-40), and his DRS review against the appeal was turned down. Mahmudullah, who survived a missed stumping and a dropped catch, was caught pulling at long leg off Sharma as well. Jadeja accounted for both Mehedi Hasan Miraz (23) and Taijul Islam (6) as India made short work of the tail. Ashwin trapped Taskin Ahmed (1) lbw to wrap up the win. Virat Kohli complimented the opposition for putting up a fight especially after the hosts had declared their first innings at a mammoth 687-6d. India’s next assignment is a four-Test series against Australia, starting in Pune on February 23. Things were looking settled for Bangladesh when Rahim played a drive off Ashwin in the 53rd over, only for the ball to loop up in the air and he was caught at mid-off. Mahmudullah and Sabbir Rahman (22) then played out the rest of the session, taking Bangladesh past 200. After lunch, Bangladesh seemed to be playing for time and the batsmen weren’t concerned with scoring runs. Only 42 runs came in this final session of the match as the visitors crashed to defeat. “It was quite tough in the second innings. India have a lot of options in bowling, spinners and fast bowlers both. I am really proud of my team. We batted more than 100 overs in each innings. Hopefully, we can capitalise on that. I think our fielding let us down,” said skipper Mushfiqur Rahim after the match. HYDERABAD, India (AP): India won the one-off Test against Bangladesh in Hyderabad by 208 runs yesterday. The visitors were bowled out for 250 runs in 100.3 overs in the second innings, shortly before tea on day five. With this victory, India has won their last six Test series stretching back to the tour of Sri Lanka in 2015. The number-one ranked side is also unbeaten in 19 consecutive Tests since then. Mahmudullah top-scored with 64 runs, while Ravichandran Ashwin (4-73) and Ravindra Jadeja (4-78) shared eight wickets between them. Starting from overnight 103-3, Bangladesh got off to a poor start. Shakib Al Hasan (22) was caught at short leg off Jadeja in the third over of the morning. First-innings’ centurion Mushfiqur Rahim (23) then added 56 runs with Mahmudullah for the fifth wicket. Mahmudullah then reached his 13th Test half-century off 84 balls, including six fours.last_img read more

Manitobas child services watchdog to launch review of Tina Fontaine case

first_imgAPTN National NewsAt the time of her disappearance, Tina Fontaine was a ward of a child and family services agency and now Manitoba’s Children’s Advocate says they’re in the very early stages of an investigation into her case.“We’re still in the process of determining how large the review is going to be,” said spokesperson Ainsley Krone. “Our role is really to look at the quality and the type of service that was provided to the child.”Krone couldn’t discuss specific details or provide a timeline for their investigation but says when the review is completed, her office could provide recommendations to the province and agencies involved.The discovery of 15-year-old First Nation girl’s body in a Winnipeg river has sparked sadness and anger.Winnipeg police still haven’t said how Tina Fontaine died but they are asking the public to contact them with any details that may help the investigation. Her remains were reportedly found in a bag in the Red River.Police said her body was found while searching for another missing man Faron Hall. Police divers located her body then.It’s a case that has shocked even police.“She’s a child. This is a child that’s been murdered. Society would be horrified if we found a litter of kittens or pups in the river in this condition. This is a child,” Winnipeg police Sgt. John O’Donovan told reporters at a press conference. “Society should be horrified.”Fontaine was from the Sagkeeng First Nation, an Ojibway community 121 km north of Winnipeg. Police say she had only been in the city for a month before she disappeared on August 9.“She’s definitely been exploited and taken advantage of,” said O’Donovan.A monument to missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls was only unveiled days ago in Winnipeg. On Facebook, provincial Aboriginal Affairs Minister Eric Robinson expressed his outrage that Fontaine’s body was found not far from that same monument.“Last week we unveiled a monument and plaque to honor missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls,” wrote Robinson. “Little did we know a young girl would be found on the Red River, determined to have been murdered only 7 days later.”Robinson says it’s time the federal government calls a national inquiry.In May, the RCMP released a report that found nearly 1,200 Indigenous women had been murdered or went missing in the past three decades across Canada.news@aptn.calast_img read more
