      Mitchell Santner struck Adil Rashid for consecutive sixes, New Zealand v England, 1st ODI, Hamilton, February 25, 2018/Getty Images HAMILTON: A century by Ross Taylor and lusty late hitting by Mitch Santner delivered a last-over victory to New Zealand against England in their first one-day international in Hamilton on Sunday.

      In a match filled with twists and turns, the outcome hung in the balance until Santer smacked a six in the final over to get New Zealand home with four balls to spare.
      Rival captains Kane Williamson and Eoin Morgan both said the initiative "ebbed and flowed" throughout the match.
      "There wasn´t much between the sides and I think that´s reflected in the result," added England skipper Morgan.
      Taylor with 113 and Latham (79) paved the way for the New Zealand win and when England produced a middle-order collapse Santner hit a match-winning 45 off 27 deliveries.
      Ben Stokes celebrated his return to international cricket with the crucial wicket of Latham to snap a 178-run stand with Taylor and have New Zealand at 205 for four in the 40th over.
      They slipped further to 244 for seven before Santner lashed out to chase down England´s 284 for eight.
      "When we broke the partnership we knew we were back in the game but taking it towards the end we just didn´t have enough in the tank," said Morgan.
      Williamson, who won the toss and elected to bowl, expecting the dew to have an effect late in the day-night match, singled out key moments which went New Zealand´s way, particularly with bowling late in the England innings.
      "We had to play a lot of cricket before the dew came in but I think it was a factor tonight," he said.
      "A lot of credit to the death bowling. To keep them to 70-something in the last 10 was a very good effort," Williamson added.
      "It was a brilliant partnership (from Taylor and Latham) but also from Mitch Santner at the end to bring us home."
      Whiff of victory
      New Zealand were in trouble at the start of their run chase as they fell to three for 27 in the 10th over.
      Taylor, with his 18th century, and Latham clawed the home side back into the game with their 178-run stand before Stokes stepped up to remove Latham for 79.
      Latham´s dismissal sparked a middle-order collapse with three wickets falling for 10 runs.
      As Taylor started to run out of partners, he tried to up the pace to get New Zealand home but with 25 balls remaining and New Zealand needing a further 45 runs, he was stumped on 113.
      But if England had a whiff of victory, Santner had other ideas with a rapid two fours and four sixes to get New Zealand home.
      Stokes, returning for his first international since a nightclub incident five months ago, had an undistinguished turn at bat after New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl.
      The all-rounder lasted 22 balls and was gone for 12 while the foundation of the England innings was laid by Root, with 71 off 75 deliveries and Buttler who belted 79 off 65 before he was run out off the penultimate ball.
      England were looking at a score of more than 300 until tight New Zealand bowling restricted them to just 31 runs between the 42nd and 48th overs.
      New Zealand were immediately in trouble at the start of their chase when Colin Munro belted a six off the second ball he faced and was gone two balls later without adding to his score.
      Kane Williamson only managed eight off 23 balls and Martin Guptill went for 13.
      Stokes, discarded by England for five months after a nightclub incident, had an economical four-overs in his first bowling spell that only cost 15 runs.
      When he was recalled with Taylor and Latham in full flight and New Zealand 187 for three, he went for 11 in his first over before having Latham caught by Root at mid-on.

      Xi Jinping, who is also party chief and seen as the country's most formidable ruler since Mao Zedong, has been president since 2013. ? Reuters BEIJING: Xi Jinping, China's most powerful leader for decades, could stay in office indefinitely after the Communist Party called for the removal of presidential term limits.

      Xi, who is also party chief and seen as the country's most formidable ruler since Mao Zedong, has been president since 2013 and the 64-year-old leader would have to step down in 2023 under the current system.
      But the party's Central Committee proposed deleting from the constitution the stipulation that a president "shall serve no more than two consecutive terms" of five years, the official Xinhua news agency reported Sunday.
      "I think he will become emperor for life and the Mao Zedong of the 21st century", Willy Lam, politics professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, told AFP.
      "If his health permits, he wants to serve 20 years, which would mean until 2032 as secretary general of the party, and 2033 as state president," Lam said.
      The proposed change, which would also apply to the vice-president, will be submitted to legislators at the annual full session of the rubber-stamp National People's Congress starting March 5. Xi is expected to be given a second term in office during the two-week-long session.
      Xi has been chipping away at the collective model of leadership that was promoted by Deng Xiaoping, the architect of the country's economic reforms in the 1980s.
      Xi's two predecessors, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, both served two five-year terms, but he has signalled bigger ambitions.
      Name in constitution
      At the 19th five-yearly Communist Party Congress last October, Xi unveiled a new seven-member Politburo Standing Committee ? its top ruling body ? that lacked any clear heir apparent to him. He was also given the customary second term as party general secretary, a job which does not have a formal term limit.
      Xi also saw his eponymous political philosophy ? Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era ? included in the party's charter, an honour only accorded to one previous leader, Mao, during his lifetime.
      The Central Committee also proposed adding Xi's "thought" to the national constitution, joining Mao again.
      Since taking over as party general secretary in late 2012, Xi has waged a remorseless battle against corruption, which has seen more than one million people punished. Some also see the campaign as a means for him to eradicate internal opposition.
      A major outcome of the 19th Party Congress was the decision to establish a new anti-graft agency, the National Supervisory Commission, that will coordinate investigations at all levels of government and expand its remit to include non-party members.
      The Central Committee proposed listing the commission as a new state organ in the constitution.
      'Without opposition'
      Xi told party officials on Saturday the constitution was key to building a moderately prosperous society, building a modern socialist country and realising the "Chinese dream of national rejuvenation" ? his slogan to restore the nation to its former glory.
      "No organisation or individual has the privilege to overstep the constitution or the law," Xinhua quoted him as saying.
      Xi is keeping a key ally by his side as he cements power.
      The feared former head of the anti-graft agency, Wang Qishan, stepped down from the Standing Committee last October because at 69, he had reached the traditional retirement age.
      But Wang was selected earlier this year as a deputy to the upcoming National People's Congress annual session, fuelling speculation that he could become Xi's vice-president or gain some other influential role.
      Another ally and new Standing Committee member, Li Zhanshu, could become head of the National People's Congress.
      "[Xi] would then ensure that his constitutional reform is adopted without opposition," said Jean-Pierre Cabestan, China politics specialist at Hong Kong Baptist University.
      Xi's presidency has been marked by the return of a personality cult and a major crackdown on democracy and human rights.
      Earlier this year the party mouthpiece People's Daily further cemented his elevation by publishing an article that for the first time referred to him as "lingxiu" ? a Mao-era honorific with more reverential and spiritual connotations than the ordinary terms.

      Denis Urubko, 44, was part of a team of Polish mountaineers attempting to be the first to scale the 8,611-metre (28,251 feet) K2 in winter, but broke away from the group after a series of disagreements-Photo: Facebook ISLAMABAD: a Russian-Polish mountaineer has launched the first solo attempt to summit Pakistan´s K2 -- the world´s second-highest park -- during winter, in what fellow climbers described as a reckless decision.

      Denis Urubko, 44, was part of a team of Polish mountaineers attempting to be the first to scale the 8,611-metre (28,251 feet) K2 in winter, but broke away from the group after a series of disagreements.
      The climber left behind his team at K2´s base camp on Saturday, with sources close to the expedition citing his increasing frustration at his fellow climbers´ pace.
      "He was trying to persuade the team to push for the summit in February," a porter accompanying the group told AFP Sunday, adding Urubko argued that conditions in March would make a summit difficult.
      "He has had a heated debate with the team leader and left for the summit without saying a word," the porter added on condition of anonymity.
      The Polish team confirmed the incident, saying Urubko left Camp Two without a radio after refusing to speak to the expedition´s leader.
      Pakistani sources said the latest incident followed mounting dissatisfaction after Urubko became upset when the team abandoned a planned route to the peak earlier this month.
      Fellow mountaineers expressed concerns over Urubko´s attempt to summit K2 alone, in what is largely considered one of the world´s most difficult climbs.
      "A solo attempt of K2 in winter is completely suicidal," said Pakistani climber Mirza Ali.
      Karim Shah, an experienced mountaineer and friend of Urubko, described the attempt as "very risky".
      "He is known as the ´Himalayan expert´ among the mountaineering community... but his decision is not correct and does not suit someone of his stature," added Shah.
      Urubko made headlines across the world as part of a two-member team that saved a French mountaineer in a daring night-time rescue on Pakistan´s Nanga Parbat last month.
      Following the rescue, Urubko returned to K2 to join the effort to become the first team to summit the peak in the winter.

      Talking to newsmen here, Ahsan called the protest rebellion against the state and said the centre is also involved in creating the hoopla-Photo: File LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Sunday blamed Punjab government and Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif for provoking protests against the arrest of Ahad Cheema, former director of Lahore Development Authority.
      Talking to newsmen here, Ahsan called the protest rebellion against the state and said the centre is also involved in creating the hoopla.
      Ashiana Housing Scam: Bismillah Engineering CEO remanded into NAB custody
      NAB calls Punjab government allegations in Ahad Cheema case ?baseless?
      ?They are not just favourites, they are brats,? Ahsan said about the Sharif brothers, adding that they want a judge like Justice Qayyum and a bureaucrat like Cheema.
      According to the National Accountability Bureau, Cheema by misuse of authority and with criminal intent, awarded a contract of the Ashiana-e-Iqbal project of approximately Rs14 billion to Lahore Casa Developers ? a joint-venture which was ineligible for the contract. He is also accused of receiving illegal gratification in the form of a 32-Kanal land valuing Rs30.09 million approximately from the owners of Paragon City (Pvt) Ltd.
      Cheema is currently in NAB custody on an 11-day remand.
      His arrest led to friction between NAB and the Punjab government which traded accusations after the arrest. A group of bureaucrats also resorted to protest after the arrest.

      JATI UMRA: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif called on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Sunday and discussed the current political situation of the country.
      In the meeting here, both Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders discussed the contemporary situation of ongoing politics among other matters.
      In a statement, CM Punjab Shehbaz said that the faces of those levelling baseless allegations have been exposed.
      ?Niazi is the captain of liars,? remarked Shehbaz Sharif.
      The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has displayed worst kind of performance in the province, said the CM Punjab.
      He further said that any sane person will not give a vote to those doing negative politics in the next elections. 
      On February 22, sources said senior party leaders at a high-level PML-N meeting held at Punjab House recommended to make Shehbaz the president as he is a non-controversial and influential person.
      Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz is likely to be elected the president of PML-N after Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by the Supreme Court.

      The apex court of Pakistan had announced its verdict on petitions challenging the Elections Act 2017, ruling that a person disqualified under Article 62 and 63 cannot serve as the head of a political party.
      The decision by the three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar is considered another blow to the ruling PML-N as Nawaz Sharif will no longer remain the party?s president. As a result of the verdict, all decisions taken by Nawaz Sharif as PML-N?s president stand null and void.

      Just a day before MWC starts, Samsung has officially announced its 2018 flagship duo, the Galaxy S9, and S9 Plus.
      (c) Twitter/TechCrunch
      The display department hasn't changed a lot. The S9 and S9 Plus mount a 5.8-inch and 6.2-inch Quad-HD Super AMOLED panels from Samsung. The aspect ratio stands at 18.5:9 in a taller form factor. The US and China are getting a 10nm based Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor while the other markets will be powered by Samsung's proprietary  Exynos 9810 CPU. 
      And this is where the similarities between the two phones end. Following Apple, Samsung is packing the Plus model with more bells and whistles. The RAM got a usual upgrade to 6GB compared to 4GB of Galaxy S8. The storage also gets doubled at 128GB for Galaxy S9 Plus. Thankfully, Samsung is still keeping a micro-SD slot and a headphone jack.
      (c) Twitter/Verge
      The S9 features single lens 12MP rear camera with a variable aperture at f/1.5 and f/2.4. The f/1.5 aperture kicks in dark situations and helps to gather more light to improve the image quality. The f/2.4 shows off its advantage in daylight conditions and reduce the over-sharpening of images often done by a wide aperture. The single LED flash and OIS are there as well.
      The bigger brother comes with dual camera setup and the primary camera works similar to Galaxy S9's 12MP snapper while the secondary camera features a telephoto lens. The functionality is same as Note 8 with Live focus mode that adds fake blur in the background and let you adjust the blur after the image is saved. Both the lens are OIS equipped too.
      The addition of new and powerful chipset has added the support for 4K video recording at 60 frames per second. The video camera is also capable to shoot what Samsung calls Super Slow-Motion film at 720p@960fps.
      (c) Youtube/Verge
      The selfie shooter stands at the 8MP resolution and this time Samsung has added portrait mode too. The company has also packed their version of AR emojis. Unlike Apple, Samsung will make a similar avatar of your face using the front camera and the users can use it to make a gif and animated videos and unlike Apple, these are shareable to major social platforms.
      For the first time, Samsung has implemented stereo speakers that are specially tuned by AKG. The microphone at the top and the bottom speakers work simultaneously to deliver the best possible sound experience. And don't worry, the headphone jack is here to stay!
      The Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus pack 3000mAh and 3500mAh battery respectively. Unfortunately, Samsung is still stuck with adaptive fast charging based on Quick Charge 2.0.
      (c) Youtube/Verge
      The fingerprint scanner is now moved to below camera, making it more accessible than ever. The iris scanner and Android Face Unlock will work together to provide better security and an instant response time.
      The S9 series runs on Android Oreo 8.0.0 with Samsung Experience 9.5 on top. The two devices will retail for $600 and $700 respectively (Approx INR and INR xxx). There is no word as to when the two devices will be available in India however we will keep you updated as soon as we have the information.

      Photo: Geo News screen grab LODHRAN: The six-year-old girl raped and killed in the district was attacked by her cousin, the police revealed.
      During a news conference, Lodhran DPO Ameer Taimur said the son of Aasma?s paternal uncle first kidnapped the minor from her house on February 19, then raped her.
      The police official added that the accused, 18-year-old Ali Haider, killed the girl as she had recognised him.
      Haider then dumped the six-year-old?s body in a ditch near her house, which was found on February 23.
      A case was filed by the girl?s brother Javaid, following which police had arrested four suspects, including two of Aasma?s cousins.
      During interrogation, the accused confessed to the crime.
      Although the rape and killing of minors is not an uncommon occurrence, the cases have started surfacing lately after murder of Zainab in Kasur, which sparked outrage throughout the country.
      The rape and murder of Zainab brought forth a number of similar cases in Punjab and other areas of Pakistan, springing authorities into action for arrest of the culprits behind the heinous crime.
