simply focus on winning and closing the gap (Source: Reuters) Top News Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho believes that the club can still win the English Premier League (EPL) title despite going into Sunday’s fixture with West United nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea “When I won the last title 18 years ago —sorry 18 months ago — I had a 10 points advantage and then in one month I had the same points as Man City “We lost 10 points in one month I think it was the end of December or the beginning of January and we’d lost 10 points” Mourinho was quoted as saying by the local media on Saturday “Then we recovered and won that title 18 years ago — sorry 18 months ago You can recover points Others can lose points” Mourinho is confident that the pendulum of fortune will swing back in his team’s favour after complaining last week of being unfortunate as his team conceded a late-gasp goal against Arsenal to play out a 1-1 draw “During the season there are moments when everything goes against you and moments where everything goes in your favour” he said “We know that the game is not over but the reality is there is a distance And there are many quality teams but let’s go match by match and see what happens” he said “We play another difficult game on Sunday so we see if we can get the three points” Despite the convincing 4-0 win over Feyenoord which highlighted United’s ability to overrun teams Mourinho said he wants United to simply focus on winning and closing the gap “Thursday it was 4-0 One day it can happen but big results are not very usual in the Premier League We lost 4-0 and sometimes somebody loses 5-1 or whatever but it’s not very usual” he said “There is a great balance between the teams Every game is very difficult But rather than winning one game 5-0 we need to win four or five matches That’s what we need Let’s try to get points” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsIpoh Malaysia: India coach Roelant Oltmans praised his team’s tight defence in the bronze medal match of the 26th Sultan Azlan Shah Cup which the team won 4-0 against New Zealand in Ipoh Malaysia on Saturday though he added that they did not score as many goals as they should have "I don’t think New Zealand had one serious shot on the goal in the whole game We did not concede a single corner" said Oltmans expressing satisfaction at the manner in which India turned around their game after Friday’s disappointing 0-1 loss to Malaysia File photo of Roelant Oltmans Getty Images India needed a two-goal victory over Malaysia to secure their second consecutive entry into the final of this tournament but played an erratic match to end up losing to the hosts who had lost three previous matches Against the Black Sticks India rode on two penalty corner conversions by Rupinderpal Singh (17th and 27th minutes) besides field goals from SV Sunil (48th) and Talwinder Singh (60th) to assert their supremacy "Our defence was really well organised today They kept the structure really well" said Oltmans "We also managed to create a lot of goal-scoring opportunities If one wants to be critical we didn’t score as many goals from the opportunities that we created The way we finished that off is not good enough yet That is something we need to work hard on "We were also unlucky at times as the ball rebounded off bar on one

I though those were less than 50-50. Ajay Thakur had a quiet first half for Tamil Thalaivas as they trailed 7-9.— or allow me to — Rahane was not captain.Say what if someone else was what would’ve happened The possibilities while not being endless are at least ten in number Let’s start with the most likely candidate after Rahane – Ashwin If nothing else Ashwin would’ve stationed himself at first slip to reduce the pretense of any fielding to a minimum After a few drops at first slip he would’ve either moved himself to second slip or leg slip Or still better a wide leg slip Regardless of whichever slip he would’ve fielded in he would’ve ensured a backup fielder —either at third man or fine leg This way he could gingerly chase the ball (as he has through the series) to order the said fielder with a stern command such as “KEEPER” or something equally stern such as “BOWLER” Ravindra Jadeja probably would have used up all the reviews in the first two deliveries itself AP In addition to these fielding shenanigans Ashwin would ace the reviews He would still nod rapidly (vertically) after his furious appeals though more out of habit than in the hope of convincing the captain He would jog mid-pitch to Saha and the others and review with maximum determination and minimum dialogue with his mates Ashwin would use both the reviews quite possibly the first two times the ball would make contact with the pads When turned down he would nod rapidly (horizontally) In the post-match interview he would speak at length about his bowling and how Jadeja had supported him —even if it was obvious that he had supported Jadeja If not Ashwin imagine if Pujara was captain —he would’ve promoted himself to open simply stating that he was sick of waiting for the obvious that is the first wicket which always seemed to fall sooner rather than later Like Ashwin Pujara too would post himself close in through the innings at either forward short leg or silly point He would get himself a full body protective suit which he would wear underneath his whites As captain he would try and set an example and chase balls albeit greatly hampered by the full body protective suit When asked how it compared to running in shin guards he would say in his usual dead pan way that all the preparations had been made the suit was good because he had trained in it during the ODI series (his off-season) and they would bowl the Australiansout in no time at all As captain he wouldn’t bother running suicidal singles to impress his peers If Jadeja was skipper he would use both the reviews off the first two balls bowled by him —never mind whether it hit the batsman’s pad or the batsman’s bat that he had bowled it would be enough for him to take a wicket Instead of making the review symbol Jadeja would review with his very own sword-slashing symbol When ignored and not reviewed by the umpire he would look quite puzzled but pay it little heed and mechanically bowl another delivery Jadeja would bowl unchanged from one end for the entire course of the Australianinnings In a full day if Australia lasted India would bowl at least 110 overs Expectedly Jadeja’s rapid over-rate would baffle umpires and batsmen alike and he would often end up bowling 12 ball overs and sometimes from both ends Murali Vijay as captain would make leaving the ball an integral part of the net session With this in mind quick bowlers would be instructed to bowl only outside off After being dismissed nicking one behind himself Vijay would instruct some hapless seamers to bowl at him in the nets —outside off of course Off spinners would be treated with disdain Ashwin included who he would hit repeatedly over his head in the nets After taking a catch Vijay would slyly ask the umpire to review He would even bowl a few overs to keep himself from dozing off in the slips If Saha was skipper he’d be in a real quandary with reviews waiting for his mates to take a call and make the review When reminded of his captaincy he would reluctantly and somewhat shyly ask for a review It would be similar in the team huddles when everyone would look to him to speak —and he at them In spite of being captain he would still remain an able-foot soldier And what if Ishant Sharma was made captain —he would ask for face-making drills to be made mandatory As too longer hair And use of the unlucky tag to deflect tough questions —“we lost because we were unlucky” being the norm as too “we won because the opposition was unlucky” There are other players too but they’re not yet ready for captaincy Not in this post at least For that they need to add a little kink to their cricket first From left to right Joshna Chinappa Shweta Hakke Rani Rampal Gabriella Demetriades Ishita Malaviya Jaie Bhadane Deepika Padukone Naina Mansukhani

the squad She is the only Indian to have been nominated for the International Hockey Federation (FIH) Women’s Young Player of the Year Award in 2010 The feisty forward has humble roots hailing from a small town in Delhi but that has never stopped her “Coming from a small village never stopped me; every time I won a medal I kept getting stronger and more confident to take on the world” For Rani

visibility “The men have a lot more exposure they can play for their states in regular national tournaments and they have more foreign trips They can be full-time footballers; Indian women don’t have that luxury” Jyoti said in an interview with The Ladies Finger With players like Jyoti on the squad we’re sure that the women’s football team will start getting the attention they deserve Joshna

government of the day does not get carried away by "subjectivity" says former external affairs minister Salman Khurshid Being a senior member of the United Nations New Delhi should also sign international convention and protocol relating to refugees the senior Congress leader advocated File image of Salman Khurshid Reuters Also a former Union law minister Khurshid noted that India had accommodated refugees from Tibet Sri Lanka and Afghanistan among others as he spoke about many problems including those associated with their settlements and looking after them "Despite every thing (many problems on refugee issues) for a nation that claims a place at the high table of the world and that claims to get a seat in security council of United Nations and which has a remarkable record of participating in UN peacekeeping forces across the globe I think we cannot shy away from responsibility of accommodating refugees (in general)" he told PTI "Europe under great stress has done it (accommodated refugees) Of course United States of America has done it in the past; but under the present administration they have problems about it (on accommodating refugees)" he said "But I think as a country that stands apart from many others in terms of democracy human rights and basically of compassion for all human beings India deserves to have not just a policy but deserves to have a well thought-out law so that there is no ambiguity and the government of the day is not really allowed too much freedom" Khurshid said He said while some leeway given to the government on dealing with refugees (in general) is fair it should work within certain objective principles and not be carried away by subjectivity "I think that is what we should be doing a good law in the matter of refugees I suppose we should sign refugee convention and protocols as a senior member of United Nations I think that’s what we should do and replicate it (international convention and protocols) with a law within the country" Khurshid argued On India’s policy towards the Rohingyas he said "It’s not a policy on Rohingyas alone They (the government) have a policy. There is a policy which somehow seems to be influenced by religion and that I think is absolutely appalling" Speaking about accepting refugees in general and not referring to the Rohingyas issue in particular Khurshid said if the government wants to accommodate refugees from anywhere it should certainly extend them support but not make a distinction between "people of one religion or other" Meanwhile former diplomat Talmiz Ahmad said India a strong supporter of political liberalism should engage with Myanmar to ensure the return of Rohingyas as their normal citizens amid concerns in some sections in this country over their stay "The most important point to address is neither Bangladesh nor India it’s the government of Myanmar We have to engage with the government of Myanmar to ensure that these people are accommodated in Myanmar as normal citizens of that country" he said Hyderabad: The Telangana Police on Thursday arrested a legislator of the ruling TRS for his alleged misbehaviour with a woman collector of Mahabubabad district in Telangana He was later released on bail at the Mahabubabad town police station an official said The MLA from Mahabubabad B Shankar Nayak

and Reshma Patel — have joined the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in poll-bound Gujarat in a dramatic turn of events The development came on Saturday hours after state Congress chief Bharatsinh Solanki invited Hardik Patel to join hands with the party Solanki even promised to give an additional 20 percent reservation to economically backward classes in the state if the Congress is voted to power in the upcoming assembly polls File image of Patidar agitation leader Hardik Patel PTI Varun Patel and Reshma Patel were among the prominent faces of the Hardik Patel-led Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) and remained critical of the ruling BJP during the agitation They joined the BJP after a meeting with Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and state party chief Jitu Vaghani during its parliamentary board meeting which was also attended by BJP president Amit Shah After joining the BJP the Patidar leaders alleged that Hardik Patel had become a "Congress agent" and was trying to use the agitation to overthrow the present state government "Our agitation was about getting reservation under the OBC quota not about uprooting the BJP and bringing the Congress to power" Reshma Patel told reporters While the BJP always supported the community and accepted a majority of our demands Congress is only trying to use Patels as a vote bank We do not want to be part of such malicious conspiracy" she claimed "This agitation was not of Hardik Patel’s alone He is now acting like a Congress agent Varun and I are of the opinion that the BJP would definitely fulfil our demands" she claimed Varun Patel said the Patidar community would never allow the Congress to take over the reins of Gujarat by "inciting" Patel youths "The BJP government (in the state) held talks with us in the past to resolve various issues However the Congress never held such talks as they were not committed We have decided to join BJP because we do not want to run the agitation by becoming Congress agents" he said "The BJP government even promised us to represent the issue of reservation to the OBC Commission BJP leaders also promised us to provide legal help in case we want to take up the matter with the Supreme Court" he added Unfazed by the announcement of his key aides Hardik Patel said in a tweet he that will continue to fight for the people "The centipede will continue to run even if some of his legs break People are with me and I will continue to fight for them" he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi didn’t directly refer to the coming Uttar Pradesh elections in his Saharanpur rally barring the fact that he represented the state in Parliament and thus should be taken as a ‘UPwala’ He focussed on developmental issues highlighting achievements of his government intended to create a long term goodwill for him his government and his party However the Prime Minister allowed his official number two Home Minister Rajnath Singh to take centrestage and sound the poll buglePrime Minister Narendra Modi PTI Singh was direct He closed his speech with a clear appeal — come next elections give a clear majority and form a BJP government And that emotive Ram tinge BJP has already spent 14 years of vanwas (out of power) and it was now time that it should be voted to power Singh had specially accompanied Modi for the rally and thus it could be assumed that his task was clearly cut out – he as the most prominent face of the party in the state would be straightaway put on campaign mode while Modi would give more of a Prime Ministerial speech than be the one to take on the lead campaigner role The difference is a bit nuanced but still it was played like that at least today If that is of any indication then it is clear that Singh will be face of BJP’s poll campaign in Uttar Pradesh Firstpost learnt from reliable sources that Singh would campaign extensively in Uttar Pradesh and will be the campaign lead for the BJP It is however not clear so far if a formal announcement to that effect would be made or a campaign committee with him as the head would be formed in due course Throughout Singh’s speech "if our party comes to power in UP then we will." do this or do that was a constant Singh a former Uttar Pradesh chief minister remains the most credible face in the state around whom varied sections of voters could rally round He has right stature and support base to be the prime campaigner to take on both Mulayam Singh Yadav and Mayawati Incidentally he was the last chief minister from BJP ranks in Uttar Pradesh In fact in the last Assembly election in 2012 Singh’s tenure as chief minister and achievements were only positive things which tier two and three leaders could say to the audience while warming the stage for arrival of senior central leaders These are early days but what emerged from Saharanpur is indeed very interesting Modi and Singh along with some other senior leaders would again be together on dais to address a public rally in Allahabad on 13 June after conclusion of the two-day BJP National Executive meet Modi would perhaps then take on two rival political parties SP and BSP or even the third one the Congress and get in election mode For today he only referred to loot and plunder by some parties and link public schemes with castes communities and urging the state government to tame the sugar mill owners and make them pay the farmers’ dues And that warning to whosoever it could concern: Desh badal raha hai par kuch logon ka dimag nahi badal raha hai (the country is changing but minds of some people remains static) The central theme of Modi’s speech was that his government was dedicated to the marginalised sections of society and listed a number of measures taken by him in this regard as also reminding his first speech in Central Hall of Parliament in 2014 after he was formally elected leader of NDA and PM-designate He had good news for doctors and the patients dependent on them He announced that retirement age of the doctors in government hospitals was being raised to 65 Niyat saaf hai niti saaf hai (The intentions are clean the policies clean) and he went on if two years ago leader of a ruling party could claim to give a corruption free government The crowd merrily cheered to that If the pictures of responsive crowd and size of it beamed from Saharanpur was of any indication then Modi and his party have reasons to be optimistic for Uttar Pradesh polls But the challenge is very tough and they have miles to go The message was lost to none when Singh said the party had been in exile for last 14 years Will Modi make Singh script its return from exile to powerwith the collusion and inaction of the police and administration, it says Citing data released by the National Crime Records Bureauthe article claims that crimes against Dalits have risen under the Nitish Kumar regime Not only are atrocities against Dalits on the
