Vikas Mishra Bags Career-Best Figures As Delhi Beat Madhya Pradesh By Nine Wickets


Vikas Mishra tore apart the Madhya Pradesh batting order for the second time in the match as Delhi clinched a comfortable nine-wicket victory over the visitors in the Ranji Trophy on Monday. Delhi, thus registered their first win of the ongoing season. Mishra took six for 30 in the second innings as Madhya Pradesh were bundled out for 157 in 64.3 overs on third day of the Elite Group B match. In the first innings, the left-arm spinner claimed six wickets, which helped him finish the match with career best figures of 12 for 71.

The hosts needed to score just 29 runs without losing wicket to claim the win with a bonus point but lost opener Kunal Chandela (6) two runs short of the target to settle for six points.

Hiten Dalal (15) and Dhruv Shorey completed the win in 6.4 overs. Delhi will next take on Bengal in an away match from December 30.

“At the start of the season I was bowling a bit faster and after talking to coach Mithun Manhas, I started bowling slower. This created confusion in batsman’s mind whether to come forward or play on backfoot,” Mishra said on his 12 wicket haul.

The visitors resumed at seven for none and their inexperienced openers — Aryaman Birla (32) and Anand Bais (46) — put up a fighting 83-run stand but once left-arm pacer Kulwant Khejroliya snared the former, it opened the floodgates.

The MP batsmen again struggled to counter the guile of Mishra, who ran through the middle order.

Not only Mishra (6/30), but the visiting batsmen also struggled to counter off-spinner Shivam Sharma (3/52) as the two spinners shared nine wickets between them.

Rajat Patidar (21), captain Naman Ojha (22) and Yash Dubey (15) got starts but the kind of fight MP needed was no where to be seen or rather the wily Mishra made the rival batsmen dance to his tunes.

After dismissing Ojha and Dubey, Mishra trampled the lower-order along with spin colleague Shivam, who claimed the last wicket in Avesh Khan (6).

“The pitch wasn’t great to start with but local curator did a splendid job that match went till tea on third day. At the start it looked like it could finish in two days,” MP captain Naman Ojha.

“We should have taken the lead when Delhi were 36 for 5. But save Avesh Khan, others didn’t take wickets. Avesh is now ready to play for India as he has pace as well as variations,” added Ojha.

Delhi now have 13 points from from six matches.

Jaguar I-Pace is an SUV and is underpinned by an all-new aluminium platform

The Jaguar I-Pace is an SUV and is underpinned by an all-new aluminium platform along with two electric motors and Jaguar’s own battery technology. The SUV is powered by a 90kWh battery pack, made up from 432 lithium-ion cells and mounted in a frame that’s an integral structural component in the car’s floor. The battery itself can be charged up to 80 per cent in 40 minutes, and every 15 minutes of charge gives it an additional 100 kilometres of range. Maximum range is 480 kilometres.

Visually, the Jaguar I-Pace Jaguar has also incorporated design elements from the C-X75, while taking some amount of inspiration from the E-Pace, F-Pace and even the F-Type for that matter. The all-electric car comes with a sloping bonnet, sleek LED headlamps, honeycomb pattern grille and a wide central airdam. The car also comes with a set of sporty alloys, and turn-light-integrated ORVMs, while the F-Type-inspired rear section comes with sleek wraparound LED taillamps, a roof-mounted spoiler, and plastic-cladding bumper.

IIT Mandi-Incubated AI Startup Bags 3rd Place In Schneider Electric’s Asia Pacific Level Startup Pitch Contest


The Solar Labs was incubated at IIT Mandi Catalyst and NASSCOM 10k Startups.

Mandi, Himachal Pradesh: 

An Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Mandi-incubated startup has won the third place in Schneider Electric’s Asia Pacific level startup pitch contest held in Singapore recently. The Solar Labs, the award winning startup, helps solar companies analyze sites remotely using site video and design an optimized solar PV system that generates the maximum solar energy for that site. With the help of this startup, according to a statement from the technological institute, companies can cut down on their design time and increase top line revenue.

The Solar Labs was incubated at IIT Mandi Catalyst and NASSCOM 10k Startups.

IIT Mandi Catalyst is the first Technology Business Incubator or TBI in the state of Himachal Pradesh.

Companies doing OPEX installations can get a higher ROI or Return on Investment on their installed systems due to better designed systems, said the statement.

“The award contributes to market validation for The Solar Labs Team at an international level. We wish the team best in forging international collaborations and partnerships that would benefit them,” said Dr. Puran Singh, Faculty In-charge, IIT Mandi Catalyst.

The Solar Labs Startup was founded by IIT Mandi students who rejected high paying jobs and started the company together. The company started off based on multiple internships done by Mr. Siddharth in the solar industry. He assessed how industries functioned with overly manual processes and very little use of technology apart from solar panels and inverters itself besides complex software.

Speaking about Solar Labs, its Founder and CEO, Mr. SiddharthGangal said, “At IITs, we learn about the latest technology and implementations. I saw how the latest research in Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence could be applied to ease processes in the solar industry, which are overly manual and un-optimized.”

Using Artificial Intelligence, the statement from IIT Mandi said, the Solar Labs software can find out for any roof what was the best way to place solar system on the roof. The startup plans to scale up their business, particularly focusing on sales abroad.

More than 3,200 world-leading entrepreneurs, executives, and industry leaders gathered together at Innovation Summit Singapore 2018 to explore, discuss and create opportunities for powering and digitizing the economy.

Teenage Shooter Vijayveer Sidhu Bags Gold In Junior Category, Gurpreet Singh Wins Senior Silver At ISSF World Championships


India were placed third in the medals tally with 11 gold, nine silver and seven bronze medals for a total of 27, making this their best performance in the showpiece.

Sidhu, who finished fourth in the 25m pistol Thursday, had an individual score of 572 to finish ahead of Korean Lee Gunheyok (570) and China’s Haojie Zhu 565).

In the team competition, Sidhu, Sandhu (564) and Adarsh Singh (559) totalled 1695 to fetch the top honours with Korea (1693) and Czech Republic (1674) settling for the silver and the bronze medals respectively.

Adarsh Singh managed a fourth-place finish in the individual competition. In the senior competition, Gurpreet Singh ensured that the contingent signed off on a positive note with his silver.

The former Commonwealth Games gold medallist fired a score of 579 to finish second behind Ukraine’s Pavlo Korostylov, who shot a score of 581.

The bronze medal went to Koreas Kim Junhong, who shot the same score as the Indian but had lesser inner-10s to his credit.

India ended fourth in the team event with Gurpreet, Amanpreet Singh (560) and London Olympics silver-medallist Vijay Kumar (560) combining for a score of 1699.

India’s junior women’s skeet team finished a creditable fourth with the trio of Simranpreet Kaur, Parinaaz Dhaliwal and Areeba Khan totalling 318.

Though the two shooters have secured quotas, as per the stated policy, the National Rifle Association of India (NRAI) will take the final call on selection, based on the aggregate scores of shooters (in international tournaments and selection trials) leading up to the Olympic Games.
