Opinions were immediately divided in the commentary box. Matthew Hayden said Ashwin’s act was ‘very, very disappointing’ while Harsha Bhogle argued it was within the rules of the game.Buttler, who looked set for his maiden IPL hundred, walked off and was far from pleased with what happened. RR fans at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium in Jaipur went berserk but that noise might have been part of a roaring reception for Steve Smith who walked in to bat at the fall of Buttler’s wicket.Buttler was in red-hot form for Royals in 2018 when he scored 548 runs from 13 matches with a best of 95 not out and he got off to a fiery start in the new season. Chasing 185, Buttler and Ajinjya Rahane charged away to 78 for the opening wicket before Rahane fell to R Ashwin on the first ball of the ninth over. However, Buttler continued to bully the KXIP attack and scored his first ever hundred in the T20 format.Rajasthan Royals were cruising along when it all unfolded in the 13th over. Ashwin Mankaded Buttler and appealed immediately. Jos Buttler was seething with rage but he had to walk off after replays confirmed Buttler was short of the crease. It looked like Ashwin stopped in his bowling action and maybe even waited for Buttler to leave his crease. The third umpire ruled Buttler out and he was on his way to the RR dugout.advertisement#AskStar being captain ashwin should not do such dismissal .This is against the cricket sprite pic.twitter.com/xrYknHliGOChowkidar Nitin Tripathi (@NitinTr81906338) March 25, 2019England’s limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan said he could not believe what he saw and reckoned Ashwin will regret his decision.”I can’t believe what I’m seeing!! @IPL Terrible example to set for young kids coming through. In time I think Ashwin will regret that,” Morgan tweeted.I can’t believe what I’m seeing!! @IPL Terrible example to set for young kids coming through.

Very disappointed to see that.Jason Roy (@JasonRoy20) March 25, 2019Disgraceful behaviour by @ashwinravi99 – Buttler was still in the crease as he began to deliver the ball. Hate seeing this, what a terrible example to kids. #IPL #Ashwin https://t.co/qGYUgZnrIePiers Morgan (@piersmorgan) March 25, 2019It’s within the laws of the game but Jos Butler should have been warned by Ashwin before that. Very Surprised ! Remember Ashwin doing the same in an international game where Sehwag withdrew the appeal.Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) March 25, 2019He ain’t winning any spirit of cricket awards is old ashwinDale Steyn (@DaleSteyn62) March 25, 2019However, former India cricketer Aakash Chopra said the Law of cricket was above the “Mythical Spirit of The Game”.”Law is above The Mythical Spirit of The Game. Don’t fret. Don’t frown,” Chopra tweeted.Law is above The Mythical Spirit of The Game. Don’t fret. Don’t frown. #Ashwin #Buttler #RRvKXIP #IPLAakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) March 25, 2019Snehal Pradhan, however, had an interesting observation.”Ashwin resurrects a mode of dismissal that should be used alll the time against batter who look to gain an extra centimetre. What a guy,” she tweeted.Buttler was batting like a man possessed and he was not at all happy with his mode of dismissal. This debate is unlikely to settle down soon.Jason Roy, Buttler’s England teammate, said he was very disappointed to see what happened on the field in Jaipur.”Ashwin, that’s shocking behaviour! Very disappointed to see that,” Roy tweeted.Dale Steyn, South Africa’s pace ace, had this to say: “He ain’t winning any spirit of cricket awards is old Ashwin.”In 66 T20 Internationals for England, Jos Buttler has scored 1260 runs and hit 7 fifties. He is a destructive ODI player too and has 7 hundreds from 127 matches. In 2018, Buttler was on fire with some sensational knocks through the course of the IPL. He was selected in the England Test series against Pakistan and had to leave the IPL with one league match still to be played. He scored 67 and 80 not out in two Tests against Pakistan.Against India in Nottingham, Buttler scored 106 – his maiden Test hundred.Jos Buttler was also in good form in the ODI series against Austraia in England last year. He scored 91 not out, 54 not out and 110 not out in the series.advertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Senior UN African Union officials outline worsening situation in Darfur

Yesterday’s meeting, held at UN Headquarters, also focused on the recent decision of International Criminal Court (ICC) Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo – who is visiting New York this week for talks with international leaders – to seek an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and AU Commission Chairperson Jean Ping, who jointly convened the gathering of senior officials from the two organizations, heard briefings on the latest developments on the ground in Darfur.Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Alain Le Roy and Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes discussed the deteriorating security situation and its impact on efforts to bring aid to those in need across Darfur, a region roughly the size of Spain on Sudan’s western flank.Joint UN-AU Special Representative Rodolphe Adada noted that the situation has been relatively calm over the past few days, following the recent upsurge in violence, especially in North Darfur.Under-Secretary-General for Field Support Susana Malcorra told the meeting about the current challenges to the full deployment of UNAMID, the hybrid UN-AU peacekeeping force. The operation is slated to have about 26,000 troops and police officers when it reaches its peak, but currently has around only 10,000 uniformed personnel in the field.The officials also reviewed Mr. Adada’s activities, voiced the need for an early normalization of relations between Sudan and neighbouring Chad, and highlighted the importance of expediting the political process in Darfur.In addition, they discussed the so-called Qatari initiative, which is aimed at furthering efforts to broker peace between rebels, the Government and the allied Janjaweed militiamen, who have been fighting since 2003.During that period, some 300,000 people are estimated to have been killed as a result of direct combat, disease or malnutrition, while another 2.7 million people have been displaced because of the violence. Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabr Al-Thani, who chairs the Ministerial Committee as part of that initiative, is also expected to meet with Mr. Moreno-Ocampo in New York this week.Mr. Moreno-Ocampo’s visit comes two months after he requested an arrest warrant for Mr. al-Bashir for allegedly committing war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide over the last five years.“We presented a solid case. The evidence shows that crimes against Darfurians continue today,” Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said. “[Mr.] al-Bashir has complete control of his forces, and they are raping women today, they are promoting conditions in the camps to destroy complete communities and they are still bombing schools,” he added.The ICC pre-trial chamber is reviewing the evidence submitted by prosecutors to determine if there are reasonable grounds to believe the Sudanese President committed the alleged crimes and issue the arrest warrant.“The judges will decide. Those sought by the court have to face justice,” Mr. Moreno-Ocampo said referring to his request for the arrest warrant. “Between criminals and 2.5 million victims, they should make the right decision.”“It is an immense challenge for the political leaders of the world. They have to protect the victims and ensure the respect for the court’s decisions,” the ICC Prosecutor added, ahead of the General Assembly annual high-level debate, which starts tomorrow.The prosecutor has also requested information from the Sudanese Government about the August attack on the Kalma camp for internally displaced persons (IDPs), where UNAMID said it had found evidence suggesting that Government forces killed at least 31 civilians while executing a search warrant for illegal weapons and drugs.A third ICC Prosecutor’s investigation coming to completion is focusing on crimes committed by rebels, in particular the attack on African Union (AU) peacekeepers in September last year in Haskanita.Mr. Moreno-Ocampo “will be meeting senior United Nations officials and expressing his appreciation of the Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s staunch support for the independence of the international judiciary,” a spokesperson for the prosecutor told the UN News Centre.Others meeting with Mr. Moreno-Ocampo include British Minister of State responsible for Africa, Asia and the UN Mark Malloch Brown, French Minister of State for Human Rights Ramatoulaye Yade-Zimet and Netherlands Foreign Minister Maxime Jacques Marcel Verhagen. 22 September 2008Top United Nations and African Union officials have held a meeting in New York to review the political, security and humanitarian situation in Darfur, including ongoing efforts to deploy a joint peacekeeping mission to the war-torn Sudanese region. read more
