Hasan Mahmud, the other pacer, bagged three wickets but conceded more than 11 runs an over. Read more: T20 World Cup: Rahul gains momentum before losing wicket to Shakib Bangladeshi bowlers were impressive in the powerplay when they conceded only 37 runs picking up one wicket. Hasan missed a dolly from Rohit Sharma at the boundary off the ball of Taskin Ahmed. But in the fourth over, Hasan removed Rohit for two as Yasir took a great catch. Taskin was imperious from the first over. He bowled his overs early in the innings just conceding 15 runs. At one point, he seemed to be unplayable by the Indian batters. But he was unlucky and ended up wicketless. Lokesh Rahul was on fire in the middle. He smashed 24 runs off the ninth over, bowled by Shoriful Islam, who came to the playing XI replacing Soumya Sarkar. The left-arm seamer conceded two sixes in that over with a no-ball and a wide. Rahul picked up his fifty off just 31 balls. Shakib conceded 10 runs off his first over but managed to scalp the dangerous wicket of Lokesh. Virat Kohli played some glorious shots after coming to bat after the dismissal of Rohit. Kohli and Lokesh added 67 runs on the board of just 37 balls. But, Bangladesh somewhat managed to contain Kohli in the middle.

After the 15th over, India were at 130 for three with Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya batting for 40 and five respectively. Hardik came to bat after Shakib bowled Suryakumar Yadav for 30 off 16 balls. The number-one T20 batsman was getting dangerous before Shakib trapped him. In the last five overs, India added 54 runs with Kohli hitting a 37-ball fifty and ending up on 64 off 44 balls. Before Kohli reached his fifty, Hasan removed Hardik Pandya off the first ball of the 16th over. With this unbeaten 64, Kohli passed the 200-run mark in this World Cup so far. A dual effort from Shakib and Shoriful managed to send Dinesh Karthik back trapped in a run-out. He has a history to get dangerous in the death overs against Bangladesh. Shakib bagged two wickets while Mustafizur Rahman conceded 31 runs but failed to get any wickets. Before this match, Bangladesh faced India in 11 T20Is and won only one of those matches.
Right-handed batsman Lokesh Rahul gained momentum for India, hitting 24 runs in the ninth over bowled by Shoriful Islam in their T20 World Cup match against Bangladesh in Adelaide. Rahul smashed a 50 off 31 balls before falling prey to Shakib Al Hasan in the 10th over.

Police in western India arrested nine people on Monday as they investigated the collapse of a newly repaired 143-year-old suspension bridge in one of the country's worst accidents in years, officials told AP. At least 141 people, mostly women and children, died after the colonial-era cable bridge over a river collapsed in the western Indian state of Gujarat on Sunday evening. The tragedy occurred in Morbi district of Gujarat, the home state of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, around 6.45pm. "The death toll has risen to 141, with the recovery of several bodies overnight. Over 180 others have been rescued and many of them hospitalised with serious injuries," a police officer told the media on Monday. Over 500 people had thronged the bridge to perform religious rituals when it collapsed. The 140-year-old bridge was repaired and reopened to the public on October 26.

As countries gathered in Scotland were crystallizing their pledges at last year's United Nations climate conference, India used its might to intervene. Along with China, India took issue with the draft deal's suggestion to “phase out” coal, preferring the wording, “phase down." After much back and forth and hurried discussions between leaders, Bhupendra Yadav, India’s minister for environment, forests, and climate change, read out the final version. It said that nations should work toward a “phase down” of coal power. The intervention was, for India's government, a success. Now the country is expected to exercise its influence yet again to look out for its own interests at the upcoming U.N. climate conference in Egypt, known as COP27. “India has always played a key role in climate negotiations and I think Egypt will be the same,” said Navroz Dubash, a lead author of various U.N. climate reports and a long-time observer of climate policy and governance. Indian leaders say the nation requires billions of dollars to enable its clean energy transition and will push for better financing for developing countries at the summit. India has made many of its carbon emission goals conditional on receiving this financial help. Being both a climate vulnerable as well as a high emitting country, experts say India occupies a unique position on the global climate policy negotiating table. About 80% of India’s population live in regions highly vulnerable to extreme disasters like severe flooding or heat waves, according to a 2021 study by the climate think-tank Council on Energy, Environment and Water based in New Delhi. Meanwhile, the nation is currently the world's third biggest emitter of carbon dioxide behind China and the U.S., according to latest estimates. A key issue for India at COP27 will be how to finance both adapting to climate change and limiting fossil fuel emissions, according to a senior Indian government official who will be involved in the negotiations. The official, from the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, responded to written questions from The Associated Press. The official was not named, keeping in line with ministry protocols. India wants the $100 billion-a-year pledge of climate funds for developing countries, a promise made in 2009 that hasn’t yet been fulfilled despite being two years past its deadline, to be assessed, according to the official. Other questions around financing, such as what happens to climate funding in the long term, what contributions rich countries will make to poorer ones and how to make finance flows consistent with global temperature limit goals, also need to be addressed, they added. No other country will see a bigger increase in energy demand than India in the coming years, and it is estimated that the nation will need $223 billion to meet its 2030 clean energy targets. “India has made it adequately clear that it is the historical responsibility of rich countries to provide the necessary climate funding,” said the senior Indian government official. Historically, it is the U.S. and European nations that have contributed the most carbon dioxide emissions to the atmosphere. Estimates for how much it will cost to move to clean energy and industry practices globally and help vulnerable communities adapt vary, but are in the trillions of dollars. Leading up to COP27, India had announced its new climate plan saying the country will aim to achieve half of its energy requirements from non-fossil fuel-based energy sources by the year 2030. Currently, 42% of the country’s installed electricity capacity is from non-fossil fuel sources. “The investments in renewable energy, though on an upward trend, need significant scaling up. There is a funding gap. This gap needs to met by international climate public financing to attract investors in the renewable energy domain,” said the Indian government official. "The raised ambitions and new goals for tackling climate change could all be in vain if adequate financial support is not provided to developing countries.” Despite their ambitious climate plans, India is also investing more in coal, at least in the short-term. In the last two years alone, the Indian government has announced around $50 billion in forthcoming public and private investment in coal. Compensation for poor countries from rich, high-polluting nations for the destruction caused by climate change, known as “loss and damage” in climate negotiations will be a key agenda item for many developing countries, including India. According to the World Bank, 750 million people in South Asia have been affected by at least one natural disaster in the past two decades. These disasters are expected to become more frequent and intense, potentially creating immense loss and damage in the region. The NGO Germanwatch has ranked India seventh among countries most affected by extreme weather in 2019, noting that massive floods that year caused damage of around $10 billion, claiming 1,800 lives and displacing around 1.8 million people. "I think it’s a real challenge for India to position itself” on loss and damage, said Dubash, who's also a professor at the Centre for Policy Research in New Delhi. “I think it would be an important moment for India to signal its allegiance with vulnerable countries,” Long term observers of climate diplomacy say India, like many other countries, is straddling climate goals and boosting standards of living. “There are some groups of countries which tend to think that all the financing for fossil fuels should be stopped and should be restricted. The problem with this, among other things, is that it ignores the efforts to achieve the sustainable development goals that many countries are making," said RR Rashmi, a distinguished fellow at The Energy Research Institute in New Delhi. He added that moving away from fossil fuels “has to be a country driven process. It is best left to them to decide which sectors to address first rather than addressing it globally.” Many observers say this year's conference will be "in-between COP," as many of the deadlines set for climate change goals have either passed or are not due until later years. This makes the conference "a good moment to push forward the issues that the developed world typically sideline, like loss and damage, climate finance and adaptation,” said Avantika Goswami, a climate policy researcher at the Centre for Science and Environment in New Delhi. For the most part, experts say India is keeping its cards close to its chest. India will have to balance “what the country is willing to put on the table in terms of pledges, policies, and commitments” and how much they are willing to spend, said Dubash. “So we (India) don’t want to do something that would lock ourselves into something costly unless there’s a promise of finance.”
Virat Kohli scored a second straight half-century at the T20 World Cup as India beat the Netherlands by 56 runs on Thursday. Kohli scored 62 not out off 44 balls to guide his team to 179-2 after India chose to bat first. Rohit Sharma scored 53 while Suryakumar Yadav hit 51 not out off 25 balls and shared an important partnership with Kohli which accelerated the innings. In reply, the Netherlands couldn’t last against a quality Indian attack and finished at 123-9. Earlier, Lokesh Rahul (9) fell cheaply for the second game running. Kohli and Sharma then put on 73 runs off 56 balls for the second wicket. Sharma hit four fours and three sixes, bringing up his half-century off 35 balls. He was caught in the 12th over. India was at 84-2 and still only scoring at seven per over. Kohli and Yadav then put on 95 runs off 48 balls. Yadav hit seven fours and a six, the latter bringing up his half-century off the last ball of the Indian innings. Kohli’s half-century had come off 37 balls, including three fours and two sixes. India’s final acceleration put the game beyond its opponents’ reach. Indian spinners strangled the Netherlands’ chase. Axar Patel recovered from a mauling against Pakistan and took 2-18 in four overs. It was in that game that Kohli scored a match-winning 82 not out off 53 balls. Ravichandran Ashwin had 2-21 against the Netherlands. He dismissed Colin Ackermann (17) and Tom Cooper (9) in the same over. Tim Pringle was the top Dutch scorer with 20 off 15 but the result was never in doubt against an impressive display by the Indian bowlers. Bhuvneshwar Kumar had economical figures of 2-9 in three overs. Arshdeep Singh took 2-37 while Mohammed Shami finished with 1-27. India moved to the top of Group 2 with four points from consecutive wins over Pakistan and the Netherlands. South Africa is second after it beat Bangladesh by 104 runs in the first of three games on Thursday. Rilee Rossouw posted the first century of the tournament, plundering 109 from 56 deliveries. After brief concerns about rain, South Africa batted first and posted 205-5. Rossouw and Quinton de Kock put on 163 runs off 81 balls for the second wicket for the highest South African partnership ever at the tournament. De Kock scored 50 off 33 balls and was eventually out for 63 off 38 balls, including seven fours and three sixes. The Proteas then skittled Bangladesh for 101 with Anrich Nortje picking up four wickets. “Clinical in terms of performance,” South Africa captain Temba Bavuma said. “The batting lineup has shaped up quite nicely.” In the third Group 2 game of the day, Zimbabwe won the toss against Pakistan in Perth and opted to bat. Pakistan is in need of its first win after losing to India in a nerve-wracking contest at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Zimbabwe has one point after its first game against South Africa in Hobart was washed out.
With Virat Kohli showing his class once again, India sealed a nail-biter against Pakistan in their T20 World Cup opener on Monday in Melbourne. In the last five overs, India needed 60 runs to chase down the target of 160 runs. Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah conceded 12 runs in the 16th and 17th overs. But in the 18th over, Virat hit three fours off Shaheen Afridi and the target came down to 31 in the last two overs. Haris conceded 15 in the 19th over with two consecutive sixes off fifth and sixth deliveries by Kohli. In the last over, India needed 16 runs with six wickets in hand. Mohammad Nawaz scalped the wicket of Hardik Pandya in the first ball. In the next two, he conceded only three runs, but off the fourth delivery, Virat hit a six. The fifth one was a no-ball that was also smashed for a six by Virat. Eventually, India sealed the match by four wickets with Virat remaining unbeaten for 82 off 53 balls. For Pakistan, Haris and Nawaz scalped two wickets each, but their efforts went in vain as Pakistan failed to hold their nerve at the end of the match. Earlier, Pakistan batted first in this match after losing the toss. Shan Masood and Iftikhar Ahmed hit a fifty each for them. Apart from them, none of the other Pakistan batters was able to offer some challenges to Indian bowlers. Babar Azam suffered a duck while playing a straight delivery from Arshdeep Singh who also sent back the other opener Rizwan Ahmed for only four. It was a rare failure from both of Pakistan's openers. For India, Arshdeep and Hardik Pandya bagged three wickets. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami took one wicket each. In reply, India lost three wickets inside the powerplay. They lost the fourth wicket in 31 runs. And after that, Virat and Hardik came up with a match-winning partnership of 113 off 78 balls with Hardik scoring 40 off 37 balls. With this win, India continued to dominate Pakistan in the ICC events.
For countries to transition away from fossil fuels and toward cleaner energies like solar power, supply chains for components need to be more geographically diverse, officials said during a conference on solar energy in New Delhi said on Tuesday. Currently, 75% of components needed for solar power are manufactured in China, according to a recent report by the International Energy Agency. Representatives at the fifth assembly of the International Solar Alliance, made up of 110 member countries, want that to change. “By 2030, we expect that solar will be the cheapest source of electricity in most geographies,” said Ajay Mathur, director general of the ISA. Adding that freight prices have spiked, Mathur urged for “multiple regions from which solar photovoltaic products can go from the producer to the supplier” to ensure that more nations benefit from the cheap prices of solar energy. Launched by India and France at the 2015 Paris climate conference, the ISA aims to promote the use of solar energy as countries look to reduce their fossil fuel use to curb global warming. And although China has invested over $50 billion in new solar supply capacity – ten times more than Europe − and created more than 300,000 manufacturing jobs, it is not part of the alliance. “China’s policies have contributed to a cost decline of more than 80%, helping solar photovoltaics become the most affordable electricity generation technology in many parts of the world,” said senior International Energy Agency analyst Heymi Bahar. “However, they have also led to supply-demand imbalances.” Read: Tariff & land main obstacle to the solar power: Nasrul Hamid Bahar added that the global market is almost entirely reliant on China for solar products, with 15% of global supply coming from one Chinese plant alone, leading to concerns that the world is too reliant on a few, concentrated supply chains. “This concentration has already resulted in prices increasing during the Covid-19 pandemic and extreme weather events” in China when exports were disrupted, Bahar said. ”Diversification will result in a more secure supply chain.” Industry experts say that a diversified supply chain can also increase employment, grow economies, encourage innovations, provide energy security as well as help countries achieve their climate goals. “Right now, the jobs that are being created in countries like India are largely in the construction and installation side of things and not on the manufacturing side,” said Ulka Kelkar, who directs India’s climate policy analysis for the World Resource Institute. “To really benefit from the full potential of the job creation possibilities of solar manufacturing, it is important to diversify.” India’s federal minister for power, RK Singh, told the conference on Tuesday that countries have “the responsibility of enabling development in the parts of the world that lack access to energy and energy security.” Read: Why solar power investors are in no man's land The Indian federal government recently approved funding to the tune of $2.6 billion for a production-linked incentive scheme that would encourage domestic solar module manufacturing. The U.S.’s Inflation Reduction Act also encourages domestic manufacturing of solar power components. The solar energy market needs to grow tenfold by the end of the decade if global climate goals are to be met, according to both the ISA and the International Energy Agency. The ISA’s assembly, which runs until Wednesday, also announced programs that will encourage investments in solar energy in Africa as well as help start-ups in the solar energy space.
