Next India Today Web Desk New DelhiJuly 4, 2019UPDATED: July 4, 2019 14:17 IST ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: Pakistan need a miracle against Bangladesh on Friday to qualify for semi-finals (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSEngland, Australia and India have sealed their spot in the semifinalsPakistan needed India or New Zealand to defeat England for a spot in the semifinalsPakistan and Bangladesh will face each other in their last group-stage fixtureFast-bowling legend Shoaib Akhtar blasted New Zealand, saying he was disappointed with the way the Black Caps played against England in their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match in Chester-le-Street on Wednesday.New Zealand lost to hosts England by 119 runs, all but ending Pakistan’s chances of reaching the semi-final of World Cup 2019. Nonetheless, Akhtar feels only Pakistan and not anyone else is responsible for their impending exit from the 50-over tournament in England.”I was disappointed with the way New Zealand played against England. They didn’t give any fight and meekly surrendered before England. They played like amateurs. They didn’t play quality cricket,” Shaoib Akhtar said in his YouTube channel.Pakistan suffered a massive defeat to arch-rivals India in their June 16 meeting in Manchester but have played a different brand of cricket ever since. Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men are on a 3-match unbeaten run after having outclassed the likes of South Africa, New Zealand and Afghanistan.Pakistan wanted a few results to go their way, especially against England. They would have benefitted had India and New Zealand defeated the hosts in their last 2 league matches but Eoin Morgan’s men stormed into the semi-final with wins over the 2 teams.Akhtar pointed out that Pakistan’s World Cup-opening defeat to West Indies and their 46-run loss to Australia were 2 matches that influenced their current standing in the World Cup points table.”The match against West Indies cost us badly. Then their match against Sri Lanka got abandoned. After that, they lost the game to Australia which they should have won. These three matches made it very difficult for Pakistan. They themselves have got out of the tournament. Nobody else is responsible for their loss,” Akhtar said.advertisementMeanwhile, Akhtar also urged Pakistan to give it their all and play for pride in their final group-stage match against Bangladesh.”All is not lost still. We have to play for our pride against Bangladesh. Pakistan has to make sure they don’t get humiliated and therefore they should play good cricket against Bangladesh,” Akhtar added.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Pakistan need lightning to strike Bangladesh team, jokes Mohammad YousufAlso Read | World Cup 2019: I should have won the Australia match for Pakistan, rues Imam-ul-HaqAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

(Photo by Rachel Waldholz/KCAW)Because of Alaska’s budget crisis, state agencies cut spending this year and are planning additional reductions in the next few years.For the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, those cuts have meant less monitoring of fish runs, a change that will lead to more conservative management and less fishing opportunity.That was the message from Fish and Game officials to a commercial fishing industry organization that met in Petersburg in late October.ADFG commissioner Sam Cotten told the board members of the United Fishermen of Alaska at its fall meeting in Petersburg that the department is looking at several years of budget reductions.“Last year I think we took an 18 percent cut and the governor’s asking for another 10,” Cotten said. “And the legislature’s not going to be satisfied with that. So it isn’t a matter of whether our budget’s going to get cut it’s a matter of how much. But we would like your help on the where part.”The department’s total spending this year is over 208 million dollars, with 65 million of that coming from the state’s general fund. More than half of that general fund money goes to programs in the commercial fisheries division. That general fund portion was cut from 80 million dollars the year before.In Southeast, programs that were reduced or eliminated were red king crab research, salmon aerial surveys, herring management and studies, port sampling and several weirs for counting salmon. Other cuts were made to sockeye salmon stock assessment and rockfish surveys.Elsewhere in Alaska, the cuts were made to herring monitoring and sampling, fish counting sonar, habitat mapping, aerial surveys, weirs and salmon counting towers.Deputy Commissioner Kevin Brooks said the department has looked to cut out time on the shoulder season, the beginning and end of salmon runs, for monitoring equipment or programs. “So the first thing we’re gonna do is we’re cutting back on the shoulders,” Brooks said. “If we had a weir we might go back to a tower or doing an aerial survey, something that’s less expensive and less precise, or shortening the time a weir might be in the water. But at some point we can’t just take incremental cuts we have to eliminate a project.”Weirs, towers, sonar, aerial surveys and sampling are all tools managers use to count fish and determine the strength and timing of returns. That information is used to decide how long and where commercial fishing fleets get to fish. In a budget handout given to the UFA board, the department said less precise data means more conservative management and less opportunity to harvest for all users of the state’s resources.The department is also looking at consolidating administrative staff and cost savings that could come with a proposed reorganization or elimination of the Commercial Fisheries Entry Commission, the organization in charge of vessel licensing and permits for commercial fisheries.Commercial fleets and processing companies pay tens of millions of dollars of taxes to the state each year. That number fluctuates with the changing volume of the catch and the changing dollar amount for that catch.Industry members said they would continue to advocate for the Fish and Game budget in the legislature and noted the importance of the commercial fisheries division in the overall department’s operations. UFA members also asked for greater transparency in the state budgets; they wanted to see easily understandable budgets with program costs down to specific line items so they could suggest spending cuts.The governor’s budget proposal for next year is due out in December.

A Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) jawan in Assam has been served notice as a ‘D’, or doubtful voter less than two months after retired soldier Mohammed Sanaullah was declared a foreigner.The tag relegated Mamud Ali, 47, to the additional list of people excluded from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) being updated in Assam. This list has 1.02 lakh names that had earlier passed scrutiny to be in the draft NRC published in July 2018.D-voters are those who have been disenfranchised during electoral roll revision for their alleged lack of proper citizenship credentials with their cases pending in one of 100 Foreigners’ Tribunals (FTs) across Assam. But the notice that Mr. Ali received was from the NRC in the Kamrup district service centre that processed the documents of his family.Mr. Ali is posted at an industrial unit in West Bengal’s Bankura district. He took emergency leave and rushed back home in western Assam’s Dalagaon after a panchayat leader sent him the copy of the notice via WhatsApp.“I was under the impression that FTs send the D-voter notice, but the one I received bore the stamp of the panchayat. Nevertheless, I reached the NRC centre on July 6 for a hearing where police and paramilitary personnel were also present. They checked my documents and said my case would be cleared,” he said.But the CISF jawan, about to complete 24 years in service, felt slighted by the ordeal he was put through. “It was as if my father Karamat Ali Sheikh’s school certificate of 1947 and the voters’ lists of the 1960s sporting his name have no value,” he said.The citizenship of none of his four surviving siblings and others linked to his father’s legacy data has been doubted.“The CISF jawan’s case smacks of a conspiracy to make people D-voters. The NRC officials may now say they wrongly identified him as a D-voter, but are they authorised to detect doubtful voters?” asked Azizur Rahman, advisor of the All Assam Minority Students’ Union.Declared Indian but DTwo days before Mr. Ali’s “date with doubt”, a woman named Ranu Samaddar received a D-voter notice from an FT in western Assam’s Nalbari district. This is the second such notice she has received from the Assam Police’s border wing since 2004.In her late 50s and a mother of five, Ms. Samaddar was born in Bongaigaon district further west and was married to Shankar Samaddar of Nalbari district. Her husband died a few years ago.Ms. Samaddar challenged the earlier notice and the court in 2014 declared her an Indian. But her name was not included in the NRC. “It is so distressing to receive the same notice even after my citizenship was established through an extensive legal process. Does this mean our courts are meaningless and officials can do as they please?” she asked.Dies of depressionOn Monday, 29-year-old Amar Majumdar was found dead at his house in northeastern Assam’s Silapathar. He had been facing a D-voter case.Members of his family said he was suffering from depression for more than a month after his documents — they include his father Jatin Majumdar’s citizenship certificate of 1955 — were rejected by officials dealing with his case. “His NRC application was rejected too. He was worried about the future of his family and what would happen if they are thrown out of the country,” said a cousin who declined to be named.Mr. Majumdar left behind his wife and two children.
