first_imgThe date September 24, 2007 will be remembered as a new beginning of Twenty20 era and so also for MS Dhoni, when India won the inaugural World T20 at the Wanderers beating Pakistan by five runs.Riding on Gautam Gambhir’s 54-ball 75, India posted a competitive total of 157 for 5 with a handy cameo of 16-ball 30 down the order by Rohit Sharma. RP Singh and Irfan Pathan provided the early breakthroughs but Misbah-ul-Haq held one end and looked like taking Pakistan through.At one stage Pakistan needed 54 off 24 balls with three wickets remaining and then Misbah decided to attack Harbhajan Singh, slammed three sixes in the 17th over. It was anybody’s game from there.In the last over, Pakistan needed 13 runs for a win and Dhoni trusted Joginder Sharma to bowl the final over. Joginder bowled the first ball a wide, followed up with a full toss which Misbah hit a six. Indian fans were disappointed, but the next ball Misbah trying a scoop shot miscued and Sreesanth at short fine leg took the catch. The whole of Wanderers exploded with joy, Misbah was in shock.With World T20 2007 title, Dhoni began his love affair with ICC trophies. The last-over hero, Joginder never again played for India.last_img read more

first_imgTORONTO – A study by the Ontario Securities Commission suggests five per cent of Ontarians own what the regulator calls “cryptoassets” such as Bitcoin or Ether and awareness is increasing, but knowledge is lacking.The online survey conducted in March also showed that 1.5 per cent of respondents say they have participated in an initial coin offering, in which investors usually buy digital tokens that can be kept, sold or traded.However, when the 2,500 Ontarians surveyed were asked to identify true statements about these digital assets, just 34 per cent were able to do so, according to the OSC.“We did find there is a lot of awareness of the sector, and people are increasingly participating or being approached, but that understanding and knowledge and comprehension of the sector is lagging,” said Tyler Fleming, the director of the regulator’s investor office.The survey comes about a month after the provincial regulator joined forces with its peers in the U.S. and Canada to warn investors about cryptocurrency-related investment schemes.Dubbed Operation Cryptosweep, the project has resulted in dozens of inquiries and investigations, and pending or completed enforcement actions related to initial coin offerings or cryptocurrencies since the beginning of May, according to the North American Securities Administrators Association.The OSC also said in April it was gathering information on several cryptocurrency trading platforms after it received a number of complaints.The B.C. Securities Commission and the Bank of Canada have also issued warnings about investing in cryptocurrencies. In December, central bank governor Stephen Poloz sounded the alarm on Bitcoin, calling the purchase of the cryptocurrency “closer to gambling than investing.”Some of Canada’s biggest banks earlier this year halted the purchase of cryptocurrencies using their credit cards as well.Meanwhile, the price of Bitcoin has plummeted since the beginning of the year, from roughly US$13,440 on Jan. 1 to US$6,100 on Thursday, according to Bitstamp.net.The OSC’s survey suggests that on top of the five per cent who currently own a cryptoasset, an additional four per cent of Ontarians say they used to own one.Men aged 18 to 34 were more likely to report owning a cryptoasset, at 14 per cent.Most people aren’t spending huge amounts of money on cryptocurrencies and other digital assets, with just over half saying they spent less than $1,000 or no money at all to acquire them.The survey suggested that roughly five per cent of cryptoasset owners did spend between $10,000 and $19,999, and another four per cent spent more than $20,000.Most cryptoasset owners made their purchases using cash savings, at 55 per cent, but 26 per cent said they used their credit card. Fourteen per cent received them for free.Of the purchases, 37 per cent were made within the past year, but nearly as many were made during the past three months, at 35 per cent.As well, the study showed that 12 per cent of Ontarians had been approached about or sought information themselves about an ICO. Most were approached via social media, at 39 per cent, followed by friends or family at 33 per cent.“It’s clear that interest in this sector is not going to disappear any time soon,” said Fleming.“So as time goes by, as people become more familiar with the product, we would certainly expect people to be doing more research, understanding the different types of products and risks out there.”The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error as they are not a random sample and therefore are not necessarily representative of the whole population.last_img read more

Barry Bonds’ plaque used to be in the outlined area.The commemorative plaque honoring home run king Barry Bonds’ record 756th clout is  missing from AT&T Park in San Francisco.Giants spokeswoman Staci Slaughter said Tuesday night that the reigning World Series champions are in the process of replacing the plaque, which hung on the brick facade inside the ballpark beneath the flag court area in right-center field until a few days ago. The team is investigating where the missing hardware might be, Slaughter said.“We’re in the process of replacing it,” Slaughter said. “We’re not sure what happened. We’re reviewing video, but haven’t found anything yet.”There is still white glue on the brick wall where the plaque used to be.Bonds, the seven-time NL MVP, broke Hank Aaron’s home run record on Aug. 7, 2007, at home in San Francisco. The slugger hasn’t played since that season, finishing his 22-year major league career with 762 total home runs. He has been back to the ballpark as a fan in recent seasons, receiving standing ovations from the crowd that still cheers him despite allegations he used performance-enhancing drugs to fuel his pursuit of Aaron’s mark.Bonds long has denied ever knowingly using steroids or performance-enhancing drugs and the 48-year-old slugger appealed his obstruction of justice conviction from April 2011 on one count of giving an evasive answer to a 2003 grand jury investigating illegal steroids distribution.In February, a lawyer for Bonds urged a federal appeals court to toss out the slugger’s obstruction of justice conviction, saying a rambling answer he gave while testifying before a grand jury in December 2003 was not a crime. read more
