Rashid Khan had recently become the fastest ever to take 100 ODI wickets when he took just 44 matches to reach the mark.Bhuvneshwar joins the illustrious list of bowlers to take 100 ODI wickets for India: Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, Kapil Dev, Venkatesh Prasad, Irfan Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, Manoj Prabhakar, Ashish Nehra, Sachin Tendulkar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravi Shastri, Ishant Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, Umesh Yadav and Sourav Ganguly.advertisementBhuvneshwar made his debut in December 2012 against Pakistan, and took two wickets. Bowling on pitches and conditions at home meant a slow start to international cricket for the Meerut-born bowler. Bhuvneshwar has taken only one 5-wicket haul in his career, against Sri Lanka at Colombo in Septmeber 2017.This is how Bhuvneshwar Kumar took his 100th wicket – 2.2 Overs: B Kumar to A Finch, OUT! Bowled! Gone right through! Test match, T20I or ODI – Aaron Finch continues to be a walking wicket. He departs cheaply again and Bhuvi roars to get his 100TH ODI SCALP. What a beauty by Bhuvneshwar! He beautifully deceives the Aussie skipper. The previous ball moved away from him this time Kumar swings it back in and Finch is completely bamboozled. The ball was a bit fuller and pitched outside off. Aaron tries to defend it but the ball goes straight through the gap between the bat and pad. It’s a huge wicket and the dangerous Finch is back in the hut he has had a very bad summer so far.Bhuvneshwar had been out of cricket with a back spasm he incurred durin the Indian Premier League and which again retunred in the first Test during the tour of England. He made his return during the Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates and looked patchy with his line and length.He made his comeback during West Indies’s tour of India last year but looked cagey and rusty. He leaked runs with the ball, conceeding in excess of 70 in one of the games.Bhuvneshwar’s shined with balls as he took 2 wickets from the three T20Is against Australia but didn’t get a chance in the Tests. He retunred in the ODIs to shine again.Also Read | Won’t travel in same bus as Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul: Harbhajan SinghAlso Read | MS Dhoni will make the most of large grounds in Australia: Sunil GavaskarFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

British cybersecurity expert pleads not guilty to US charges

by Ivan Moreno, The Associated Press Posted Aug 14, 2017 9:38 am MDT Last Updated Aug 14, 2017 at 1:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – This Monday, May 15, 2017, file photo shows British IT expert Marcus Hutchins, branded a hero for slowing down the WannaCry global cyberattack, during an interview in Ilfracombe, England. Prosecutors have charged Hutchins and an unnamed co-defendant with conspiring to commit computer fraud in the state and elsewhere. Hutchins could enter a plea during a hearing Monday, Aug. 14, in Wisconsin federal court. (AP Photo/Frank Augstein, File) British cybersecurity expert pleads not guilty to US charges MILWAUKEE – A British cybersecurity researcher credited with helping curb a recent worldwide ransomware attack pleaded not guilty Monday to federal charges accusing him of creating malicious software to steal banking information three years ago.Marcus Hutchins entered his plea in Wisconsin federal court, where prosecutors charged him and an unnamed co-defendant with conspiring to commit computer fraud in the state and elsewhere. Authorities arrested the 23-year-old man on Aug. 2 at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, where he was going to board a flight to his home in Ilfracombe, England. He had been in Las Vegas for a cybersecurity convention.Hutchins’ attorney, Marcia Hofmann, said after Monday’s brief hearing that Hutchins will fight the charges and that “when the evidence comes to light, we are confident he will be fully vindicated.”“Marcus Hutchins is a brilliant young man and a hero,” Hofmann said.Hutchins left afterward in a white SUV with tinted windows and did not talk to reporters. During the hearing, he only spoke to say “I do,” when Magistrate Judge William E. Duffin asked him if he understood his rights.Hutchins is free on $30,000 bail, but with strict conditions. His bond has been modified so that he can stay in Los Angeles near his attorney and travel anywhere in the U.S., but he cannot leave the country. He was also granted access to use a computer for work, a change from an earlier judge’s order barring him from using any device with access to the internet. Hutchins has been working for a network security company, according to prosecutors, who did not oppose allowing him access to a computer for work.Hutchins is required to wear a GPS monitor, but Duffin said the court will consider removing that requirement once Hutchins has found a home in Los Angeles and is complying with the terms of his bond.The next hearing in the case was set for Oct. 17, with an Oct. 23 trial date, though the latter was expected to change due to the case’s complexity.The legal troubles Hutchins faces are a dramatic turnaround from the status of cybercrime-fighting hero he enjoyed four months ago when he found a “kill switch” to slow the outbreak of the WannaCry virus. It crippled computers worldwide, encrypting files and making them inaccessible unless people paid a ransom ranging from $300 to $600.Prosecutors allege that before Hutchins won acclaim he created and distributed a malicious software called Kronos to steal banking passwords from unsuspecting computer users. In addition to computer fraud, the indictment lists five other charges, including attempting to intercept electronic communications and trying to access a computer without authorization.The indictment says the crimes happened between July 2014 and July 2015, but the court document doesn’t offer any details about the number of victims. Prosecutors have not said why the case was filed in Wisconsin. The name of Hutchins’ co-defendant is redacted from the indictment.Hutchins faces decades in prison if convicted on all the charges.___Find Ivan Moreno on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Ivanjourno___This story has been corrected to show that the last name of Hutchins’ attorney is Hofmann, not Hoffman. read more

People are being urged not to travel by train in some parts of Britain over the Bank Holiday weekend, as major engineering work affecting several lines is predicted to cause chaos.Millions of people embarking on getaways face severely disrupted journeys amid stark warnings from rail firms.Virgin Trains asked customers to avoid travelling on its west coast route on Saturday and Sunday as it issued an alert stating that its services will be “very busy” over the long weekend.High demand is also expected for east coast trains between London King’s Cross and Scotland due to passengers seeking alternative routes to and from London because of the closure of London Euston on Saturday and Sunday, as well as Edinburgh’s festivals coming to an end.Meanwhile, drivers are warned to expect congested roads, with the Automobile Association (AA) predicting that the dash to popular destinations will “start in earnest” from Friday lunchtime as people finish work early to make the most of the break.A poll of more than 16,000 motorists found that 43 per cent are likely to be on the road between Friday and Monday, either travelling on holiday or on a day trip. This equates to around 15 million drivers on leisure journeys this weekend. A Network Rail spokeswoman said: “We apologise to our passengers for the added disruption to their journeys and thank them for their patience.”This all about delivering a bigger better Waterloo station fit for the 21st century.”National Express, the UK’s largest coach operator, is putting on an extra 4,000 seats over the weekend to destinations affected by the Euston and Waterloo work.Delays and disruption at other stationsBetween Saturday and September 2, there will be no Southeastern services to or from London Bridge, Waterloo East and Charing Cross as work continues to rebuild London Bridge and the surrounding railway.Queuing systems will be in place at Cannon Street station between Tuesday and Friday next week to cope with demand.center_img M25 Please check before you travel this bank holiday as our major #AugustBHWorks are happening 🔧➡️https://t.co/J7V0DxrnDj#RailwayUpgradePlan pic.twitter.com/vHInGCtOsL— Network Rail (@networkrail) August 8, 2017 Flights: which airports will be busiest?Travel trade organisation Abta estimated 2.1 million British holidaymakers will travel abroad over the weekend with Spain, Turkey and Greece among the most popular destinations.Heathrow expects 243,000 departing passengers on Friday alone, while an estimated 304,000 will fly from Gatwick over the entire weekend.What will the weather be like this weekend?Met Office forecasters predict that much of England and Wales will see mainly dry conditions with sunny spells, and temperatures reaching approximately 24C (75F) in the South.But parts of northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland – which does not have a bank holiday this weekend – will see rain or showers at times, with the mercury reaching around 17C to 21C (63F to 70F). Video: Weather forecast for this weekend Some 6.9 million adults are planning a domestic break over the last long weekend before Christmas, up from 5.1 million in 2016, according to tourism body VisitEngland.Traffic information supplier Inrix reported that the worst congestion blackspots during last year’s August bank holiday weekend were the M25 between Junctions 9 and 21 – which runs past Heathrow Airport – and the M5 southbound between Junctions 14 and J22 in the South West.
