CSK Beats RR By 45 Runs



Chennai Super Kings (CSK) II Rajastan Royals (RR) II News Aur Chai

Chennai Super Kings vs Rajasthan Royals turned out to be an easy win for the three-time champions. RR won the toss and decided to bat first, both teams remaining unchanged. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Faf du Plessis opened the batting for CSK. Gaikwad failed to find his form and got out for a disappointing 10 runs of 13 balls.

Faf was looking dangerous and took Jaidev Unadkat to the cleaners in the fifth over of the match, scoring three fours and a six. Two of those fours were scoops over fine leg. He got out shortly after that, trying to hit Chris Morris over the off-side but ended up slicing it to the fielder on the boundary. CSK were 46/2 at the end of the powerplay. Moeen Ali and Suresh Raina were the two new players. Raina has been coming in at number 4, a deviation from his usual spot at number 3, this season.

Moeen was smashing the ball very well too. RR bowlers attacked Suresh Raina with the short ball, his lifelong weakness, from the moment he came on strike. Spin was introduced with Rahil Tewatia bowling the 10th over, and the move was immediately successful. Moeen hit a pull shot off a good googly by Tewatia to the mid-wicket fielder on the second ball of the over for a very easy catch. Ambati Rayudu walked in and two experienced players of spin were on the crease at this point. Riyan Parag’s first over was an expensive one giving CSK 16 runs with both batsmen hitting a maximum. Ambati Rayudu hit 2 sixes in the next over as well which forced RR to switch back to fast bowling. This move worked well as Rayudu hit a shot to deep cover and Parag held on to a good catch.

Raina was not at his best as apparent from his poor dismissal, a lofted drive straight to mid-off. The night was set for a trademark Dhoni finish, but it was not to be. He started slow and then changed gears, hitting a couple of boundaries and getting his strike rate above 100 but edged a simple catch to the cover fielder. Chetan Sakariya’s well bowled slower delivery got the better of him.

CSK’s batting is surprisingly deep with Dwane Bravo coming in at 9. Sam Curran and Bravo scored some quick runs to get the total to 188. The six off the last ball of the innings by Bravo was the longest six of the innings. This was a strange inning, to say the least as no batsman got to the 40 run mark but the team still got to a good total. Jaidev Unadkat was expensive with an economy of 10 runs per over and Chetan Sakariya was the highest wicket-taker with three very important wickets.

Naman Vohra and Jos Buttler opened the batting and Deepak Chahar, who got 4 wickets for 13 runs in the last match, opened the bowling. They were off to a flying start scoring 11 runs off the first over. Sam Curran bowled the second over and Buttler edged one to Shardul Thakur at third man but it was too high to catch. Thakur made a good jumping attempt but could only get his fingers to the ball.

Naman Vohra hit a couple of really good shots before hitting a pull straight to Jadeja, who was just placed at deep mid-wicket. It was another disappointing match for Sanju Samson. He managed to score only one run before lobbing a simple catch to mid-on. Young Indian talent Shivam Dube was the next man in. RR got to 45 runs at the end of the powerplay courtesy of Buttler’s 30 runs. Jadeja came into the attack in the 8th over and went for 11 runs in his first over.

Buttler had to walk back for 49 as Jadeja’s beauty denied him a half-century. The ball straightened after pitching on the middle stump and hit the top of the middle and off. Next, he got Shivam Dube out LBW, who reviewed but the decision was not overturned. David Miller got out similarly off Moeen Ali’s bowling. Riyan Parag and Chris Morris hit the ball straight to Jadeja at deep mid-wicket again. Rahul Tewatia and Jaidev Unadkat tried to mount an attack in the end but had no chance as the required run rate was too high. CSK won comfortably by a good 45 runs, increasing their net run rate to the second-highest in the tournament.

Dhoni made some interesting comments in the post-match interview, “The first six balls I played could have cost us in another game. A lot has changed. The way we have prepared, the way we have turned down. The bowlers have been under the pump last year also, so they’re used to the conditions. Getting old and being fit – those are two difficult things! When you’re playing you don’t want anyone to call you unfit. I have to keep up with younger guys, they run a lot, but it’s always challenging.”

Ram Mandir Opening For “Darshan” In 2023



Ram Mandir Opening 2023 | News Aur Chai

The Ram Mandir in Ayodhya is expected to allow visitors by December 2023, with the completion of construction only in 2025.

Sources in the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra have revealed that the colossal project of building the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh, will be opening for devotees towards the end of 2023. In contrast, the project’s entire construction completion is expected towards the end of 2025. The sanctum sanctorum (Garbha Griha), along with the mandir’s first floor, will be ready by December 2023. Devotees will be allowed to visit the long-awaited mandir soon after the construction is completed.

An ANI report said, “The grand Ram Mandir being constructed in Ayodhya will be opened for devotees from December 2023. Sources told ANI that Garbhagriha, all five mandaps and the first floor will be ready by December 2023 and the mandir will be opened for devotees”.

The sanctum sanctorum will be as high as 161 feet and built using Rajasthani marble and stones. Engineers and architects are taking all measures to ensure the longevity of this enormous project. The second stage of construction is expected to begin in December this year. Currently, the structure is at a standstill as a result of monsoons. Another reason for the delay is the coronavirus pandemic that depleted the force with which the mandir’s construction was expected to go on.

The announcement of the mandir being opened to visitors in 2023 has brought up questions about the political agenda. It is believed that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) aims to use the mandir to catapult themselves into a position of advantage during the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Opening the mandir to devotees in December 2023 will give the BJP an easy 6-month gap to the general elections in 2024.

The opening of the long-awaited Ram Mandir in Ayodhya could be the factor that diverts the public, at least the Hindu’s in favour of BJP. Thus, securing them a vote bank based on religious sentiments upheld by the party in their previous tenure as the ruling party.

The Ram Janmabhoomi Mandir will be 360 feet long, 235 feet wide, and 20 feet high mandir will be completely ready by the end of 2025. The project will include amenities and structures like museums, archives, research centre, Sant Niwas, gau and Yagya shala, Etc. The main attraction is the Ram Mandir.

Escalation Of COVID-19 Cases Across The Globe



COVID Case Spike 2021 | News Aur Chai

The United States, India, and Brazil have the most confirmed cases, followed by France, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Turkey. There are very few locations that have remained undisturbed.

Since the middle of last year, confirmed cases have been increasing. Although the actual scope of the first outbreaks in 2020 is unknown because testing was not generally available at the time. The 100 million COVID-19 cases were discovered at the end of January, over a year after it was first diagnosed. As of 6:30 p.m. CEST on July 30, 2021, WHO has received reports of 196,553,009 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 4,200,412 fatalities. A total of 3,839,816,037 vaccination doses has been delivered as of July 28, 2021.

After reaching a record high of over 0.9 million cases on April 28, 2021, new daily instances of the coronavirus continued to decline, reaching a low point on June 21, when over 0.3 million cases were reported. Since then yet, there has been a global increase in cases. On July 15, 0.53 million daily cases were reported, and over three million new cases were reported in the second week of the month. As of July 15, 188.9 million patients have been recorded worldwide. The transmissive Delta form accounting for most infections in 111 countries. Most instances were recorded in Brazil, India, Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and Colombia in the last week. With the steepest increases in Zimbabwe (72%), Indonesia (44%), the United States (38%), Bangladesh (35%), and the United Kingdom (30%). Many Asian nations, including Vietnam, Malaysia, South Korea, and Japan, have reported many daily cases. However, the spread was under control.

The number of new cases in Indonesia has been on the rise, with each day seeing a significant increase over the previous day. Indonesia is now the new Asian epicentre, with 56,757 cases recorded on July 15; India reported 39,000 patients on the same day. COVID-19 fatalities are high, according to WHO. After decreasing for nine weeks, with the highest increases in Africa and Southeast Asia. COVID-19 fatalities worldwide surpassed four million on July 7. The last million deaths occurred in under 90 days, the lowest time interval for every one million deaths ever recorded.

High vaccination coverage has been shown in the United States and much of Europe to lower fatalities and even hospitalizations. For example, United Kingdom rises in incidence. There has been fewer hospitalizations and deaths over 87% of the adult population, as they are vaccinated with one dose and over 67% with two doses. In the United States, the increase in cases is concentrated in states with low vaccination coverage, with unvaccinated people accounting for most deaths. Over 55% of Americans have received one dosage, and 48% are completely immunized. It shifts the focus back to improving vaccination coverage and achieving global vaccine equality to avoid fatalities and the spread of dangerous strains. Some nations debate a booster dosage. Even though many African countries’ healthcare professionals have not been completely vaccinated, booster injections have begun to be given to patients with weakened immune systems in Israel.

In comparison, booster shots have been ruled out in the United States for the time being. With vaccine shortages reported in many Indian states. Even among the vaccinated, rigorous adherence to COVID-appropriate behaviour is the only option to postpone and mitigate the consequences of a third wave.

This spring, India and Latin America have seen a significant drop in new cases in the hardest-hit areas of the world. But the global numbers continue to grow. The Delta variety leads them to well-vaccinated regions such as Western Europe and the United States, low but rising infections. This spring, India and Latin America have seen a significant drop in new cases in the hardest-hit areas of the world. Vaccine doses have been given to over 4 billion individuals globally (52 for every 100 people), yet the discrepancy is striking.
