K.L. Rahul loves Prasidh Krishna’s aggression, bravery
K.L. Rahul on Thursday said he wasn’t surprised with the performance of pace bowler M. Prasidh Krishna, who took four for 54 on debut in the first ODI against England, and said the youngster’s aggression and bravery impressed him.
“I am not surprised with what he did yesterday [March 23]. I was always confident that the next player to come out of Karnataka will be Prasidh. We weren’t of the same batch, but I watched him play a lot of junior cricket and also [saw him] in the nets. He was somebody who would catch your eye. Tall guy, bowls quick and gets a lot of bounce from the wicket,” Rahul told the media in a virtual interaction on Thursday.
Rahul said Prasidh Krishna also possesses a keen sense of game.
“Having played with him for the last couple of seasons for Mushtaq Ali [Trophy] and Vijay Hazare [Trophy], I realised that he is a brave boy and has a great sense of the game. [Also impressive is] how he understands the game. He is a very keen learner and he is very brave, and comes in with a lot of aggression,” he said.
“If you saw in the last game then he had a word or two with the batsman. He enjoys being in the contest. That is something that I loved. Happy to see that he wasn’t overwhelmed. I am sure there were a lot of nerves. But the way he came back after the first spell to take those two crucial wickets — these are the qualities that define a player. If he works harder he will be a great asset for the Indian team,” said Rahul.
In recent times, India have earned a lot of success through their debutants. Whoever has been pushed into making a debut has performed. During the Australia series, a bunch of players — Mohammad Siraj, Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar and T. Natarajan — came good. In the ongoing all-format series against England, Axar Patel, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav have come good as well.
On Tuesday, Prasidh Krishna and Krunal Pandya made their debut and set records. Krishna’s haul was the best by an Indian on debut while Krunal’s half-century was the fastest by a debutant in ODIs.
Rahul credited the youngsters’ success to the Indian Premier League that sees them play with all the top players of the world.
“I think a huge part is the IPL and the confidence that these boys come in with. Whoever is coming into the team, it is not that they have performed in one season of the IPL or one season of first-class cricket. It has been two-three years of consistent performances at whatever level or wherever they play,” said Rahul, who regained form with a 62 off 43 balls on Tuesday.
“You would have heard Surya, Krunal or Ishan in their interviews saying they played against most of these guys in the IPL at some point. They know how they go about their games. IPL performances have given them a lot of confidence and they have carried that confidence playing for the country. I feel weird calling them youngsters because I have seen them performing for so many years. We want all the players coming in to continue to do what they have been doing. It is important that they stick to what they have been doing for so many years which has brought them so much success to keep believing in trying to do the best here.”

The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has cleared that media persons will not be allowed during the hearing on objections and suggestions received for the Draft Development Plan (2018-2038) of the city.The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) has cleared that media persons will not be allowed during the hearing on objections and suggestions received for the Draft Development Plan (2018-2038) of the city.A statement issued by civic administration stated that proceedings regarding the development plan are of statutory nature and it is necessary to carry out the said process within the prescribed time limit. Therefore, in such a situation, it will not be possible to postpone the said hearing and have a live telecast of the hearing on Youtube and Facebook to the journalists.
The Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) received a total of 15,261 objections and suggestions in 80 days including 20 days extension after publishing the draft development plan.
The hearing of all 15,261 objections and suggestions will be completed in six days from March 14 to March 28 and March 29 has been reserved for an emergency.Every ward has given time as per the number of objections and suggestions. Airoli, Belapur, Vashi and Turbhe wards will get two slots each for the hearing.Similarly, Koparkhairane and Sanpada will get three slots and Ghansoli will get four slots and finally, Nerul will get five slots for hearing.The hearing will be held at the Knowledge Centre of NMMC headquarters from 9 am and 6 pm with an hour break between 1 pm and 2 pm.
On the last day, March 28, hearings on objections and suggestions of CIDCO will be heard. CIDCO submitted a total of 625 objections and suggestions regarding the reservations put up by NMMC in the DP 2018-38. It raised its objections on 385 plots that NMMC reserved for various public amenities. But there are no objections to 240 plots, reserved in the DP.Since Navi Mumbai is a planned city, there is very little scope for further development and even in DP, the civic body admitted that the city is developed upto 95% with only 5% vacant land available for future development.The first DP was prepared by CIDCO and sanctioned by the government in 1979. Even after its formation, NMMC has been following the development control regulations (DCR) formed by CIDCO and there has been a demand for fresh DP to look into micro issues. CIDCO’s 1979 DP was a structural development plan.
Initially, there were a low number of objections and suggestions and political parties, as well as social activists, alleged that the civic body did not carry out adequate awareness regarding the development plan of the city for the next 20 years.

SC to set up fresh bench to hear pleas against polygamy, nikah halala
The Supreme Court on Thursday said that it will constitute a fresh five-judge constitution bench at an “appropriate stage” to take up petitions challenging the constitutional validity of polygamy and ‘nikah halala’ among Muslims.
Advocate Ashwini Upadhyay, who has filed a plea in connection with the issue, mentioned the matter before a bench headed by Chief Justice of India D.Y. Chandrachud. The bench, also comprising Justices P.S. Narasimha and J.B. Pardiwala, said that it will consider the matter. The Chief Justice said, “At an appropriate stage, I will constitute a constitution bench”.
On August 30, a five-judge constitution bench comprising Justices Indira Banerjee, Hemant Gupta, Surya Kant, M.M. Sundresh, and Sudhanshu Dhulia issued a notice on the petitions and made the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), National Commission for Women (NCW) and the National Commission for Minorities (NCM) parties to the matter and sought their response in the matter.
However, two judges’, Justice Banerjee and Justice Gupta, have retired now, therefore there is a need to re-constitute the bench to hear a batch of pleas challenging the practices of polygamy and ‘nikah halala’.
Upadhyay’s plea said the injury caused to the women as practice of triple-talaq, polygamy and nikah-halala is violative of Articles 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution and injurious to public order, morality, and health.
The plea sought a direction to declare Section 2 of the Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937, unconstitutional and violative of Articles 14, 15 and 21 of the Constitution, insofar as it seeks to recognise polygamy and nikah-halala.
“It is well-settled that common law has primacy over the personal laws. Hence, this court may declare that — Triple Talaq is cruelty under Section 498A of the IPC, 1860, Nikah-Halala is rape under Section 375 of the IPC,1860, and Polygamy is an offence under Section 494 of the IPC, 1860”, said Upadhyay’s plea.
In August 2017, the top court held that Muslim practice of ‘triple talaq’ is unconstitutional and struck it down by 3:2 majority. Polygamy allows a Muslim man to have four wives, and once a Muslim woman has been divorced, her husband is not permitted to take her back even if he had pronounced talaq under the influence of any intoxicant, unless his wife undergoes nikah-halala, which involves her marriage with another man, who subsequently divorces her so that her previous husband can remarry her.
