Scripting history, India scores maiden series win in Australia
SYDNEY, JANUARY 07, 2019 09:32
Final Test ended in a tame draw due to inclement weather
India scripted history winning the first ever series on Australian soil beating the home team 2-1 after the fourth and final Test ended in a tame draw due to inclement weather.
India scored 622 for 7 in their first innings and then bowled out Australia for 300 thereby enforcing the follow-on.
However persistent drizzle washed out day five thereby keeping the victory margin down to 2-1.
Coming into this fifth Test, India had an unassailable 2-1 series’ lead after winning the first Test in Adelaide by 31 runs and the third Test in Melbourne by 137 runs. Australia had won the second Test in Perth by 146 runs.
The morning began with similar murky clouds as seen throughout Sunday, and right at the supposed start of play at 10 am local time, rain arrived to prevent any possibility of cricket happening at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The match was called off at 2.30 p.m. local time, with no possibility of further play.
On days one and two, Cheteshwar Pujara (193) and Rishabh Pant (159 not out) helped India to a grand first innings’ total of 622-7 declared.
Australia were reduced to 236-6 at stumps on day three when bad light had stopped play, and they were bowled out for 300 runs in their first innings on day four, when Kuldeep Yadav (5-99) picked his second five-wicket haul in Test cricket.
Only 25.2 overs were possible on day four as Australia were at 6-0 following on in their second innings when play was called off due to bad light.
Driving licence may be linked to Aadhaar
Will prevent duplication: Minister
Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has said the government will soon make it mandatory for linking Aadhaar with driving licences.
Delivering his presidential address at the ongoing 106th Indian Science Congress here, the Minister for Law, Electronics and Information Technology said: “We are soon going to bring a law which will make it mandatory to link Aadhaar with driving licence.”
“At presently, what happens is that the guilty person who causes an accident flees the scene and gets a duplicate licence.
“This helps him go scot-free. With the Aadhaar linkage you can change your name but you cannot change your biometrics. So the moment you go in for a duplicate licence, the system will say this person already has a driving licence,” said Mr. Prasad.
