Rahul Dravid is back in India’s One-day team and India ODI Squad for Champions Trophy 2009

Dravid would once again take guard for India in ODIs. It was middle-order solidity the selectors were looking for and Dravid fitted the bill perfectly.

Selectors told that Our batting looked suspect during the T20 World Cup and the West Indies series. So we thought Dravid was the right man to add some spunk to the lineup, especially on the fast and bouncy tracks of South Africa.

With Zaheer (Khan) and (Virender) Sehwag not there, we’re short of two genuine matchwinners. Basically, we were looking at more impact players the selector added. Abhishek Nayar is the only all-rounder in the squad while wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik will be considered as the third opener in case of a crisis. He did the job successfully in the West Indies and is a multi-utility cricketer.

Chairman Krishnamachari Srikkanth’s said that this is the best team we could have sent.

India ODI Squad announced:

Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, RP Singh, Ishant Sharma, Amit Mishra, Dinesh Karthik, Abhishek Nayar, Ashish Nehra, Praveen Kumar.

Independence Day Wishes

Happy Independence Day to all

Today with all of my friends and family i celebrated the Independence Day.
The midnight of August 15, 1947 is memorable moment for every Indian on earth, as it is the time, when India got independence from the stranglehold of the mighty British. The otherwise suppressed tri-colored flag of India was given its due respect, when it was hoisted in the midnight on the Independence Day. Since then, the red-letter day is celebrated with pomp and gaiety, across the length and breadth of India.

Celebrated all across the nation with great enthusiasm, the day is marked with the Indian flag hoisting ceremony at Red Fort and Prime Minister’s address to the nation. All the state buildings and structures of national importance are adorned with ‘Tricolor’.

People indulge themselves in remembering the heroes of the freedom struggle and pay homage to them.In the evening , sky is dotted with hundreds of colorful kites symbolizing the freedom. . India Gate is the center of attraction and a nice place to hang out in the evening of Independence Day, as the structure is attractively illuminated.

Today First Swine Flu Case Near My Area is reported. Now a days, Swine Flu brings up a lot of extra fear and worry, it is important to note that swine flu is just an influenza A H1N1 virus. But still it bring more panic to public because due to lack of medicines and Test labs.

The big difference is that the current swine influenza A (H1N1) virus has components of pig and bird influenza viruses in it, so that humans don’t have any immunity to it. That is what made it more likely that it would become a pandemic virus because it could easily spread from person-to-person.

Precautions From Swine Flu:

  1. Get a regular seasonal flu vaccination. It might not help against this specific strain, but it won’t hurt.
  2. Wash your hands frequently with soap and hot running water. If hot water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand gel.
  3. When you cough and sneeze, cover your mouth and nose. Wash your hands afterwards.
  4. Avoid being near others who might be sick.
  5. Stay home if you are sick, to avoid affecting others.

Symptoms of Swine Flu:

  • High fever
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Body aches
  • Running nose
  • Fatigue or tiredness, which can be extreme
  • Diarrhea and vomiting, sometimes, but more commonly seen than with seasonal flu.
  • Breathing problem.

India eye on 1st position in ODI rankings

Dhoni’s team jumped ahead of Australia, who are third at 119 points, with 126 points to their kitty after the annual update ensured that the ODI table reflects recent form and older results discarded. India’s rise in this year’s update reflects its outstanding record during the past 12 months.

Once a year, the rankings change overnight without any new ODIs necessarily being played.

India is in a strong position to grab the top slot of ICC ODI ranking chart during the Sri Lanka tri-series next month as Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s side is now just one point behind South Africa at second place after the annual rankings update.

The chart now reflects all ODIs that took place since August 1 two years ago. All matches played until the start of next August will be added to this table, so by then the ratings will be based on three years of results.

Next August, the first year of results will be dropped and this pattern is repeated each August, with the oldest of the three years of results removed to be gradually replaced by results of matches played over the following 12 months

England (111) jumps two spots to fourth as New Zealand drops to fifth (110) and Pakistan (107) sixth following the annual update.

Meanwhile, the ICC ODI batting list is still headed by the Indian duo of Dhoni in first place and Yuvraj Singh in second position.

In 1935 American Govt had killed a person on 1st Saturday of Aug. The next day his friend committed suicide in his memory. Since then American Govt declared 1st Sunday of Aug as friendship day. Gradually the festival gained popularity and today Friendship Day is celebrated in large number of countries. On this day people spend time with their friends and express love for them.
