awkward blow to Parthiv Patel’s shoulder saw play on the opening day of the Gujarat-Odisha Ranji quarterfinal in Jaipur being suspended briefly The pitch at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium according to Gujarat coach Vijay Patel had been wet since the start of the day and that he had even brought it to the umpires’ attention However the officials deemed it fit to commence play on time before having to call for an early lunch-break 47 minutes before the scheduled interval Play eventually resumed only after the pitch was rolled and the excess moisture had been taken care of “The wicket was wet even when the match started We told the umpires that the wicket is wet before play started but they said no it’s fine Toss took place and we went to bat We lost two early wicketsWe knew this (the suspension) was coming as the ball was keeping low while there was sudden bounce sometimes This happened in the first one hour of the game” Patel said It however took a good length delivery to explode off the surface and strike India wicket-keeper Parthiv’s shoulder for the umpires to take serious notice and bring the game to a halt Coach Patel feels that further physical danger was averted by the umpires’ decision as the pitch had the potential to cause serious damage “Parthiv was hurt We complained to the on-field umpires and then play was stopped The good length spot was completely wet Luckily we were not bowling first otherwise the way Jasprit Bumrah bowls it could have been very dangerous” he said The Gujarat coach reckoned that the local authorities might have watered the pitch too much and covered it soon after without letting it dry up “When we drew the umpires’ attention they said this is a norm here We lost two wickets when the pitch was in that state This is a quartefinal and not a league game They should take note Rolling the pitch in the middle of a game doesn’t look good” Patel added For the record Gujarat recovered to make 179 for 6 at stumps on Day One

Indian Express App More Top NewsMelbourne: Roger Federer blasted critics who say he’s too old and insisted he was confident of beating Novak Djokovic again at a Grand Slam after his four-set defeat in the Australian Open semi-finals on Thursday The 34-year-old Swiss great was flattened by Djokovic in the opening two sets before he finally went down 6-1 6-2 3-6 6-3 in his eighth loss to the Serb in their last 10 Grand Slam meetings Federer hasn’t bested the runaway world number at a major since the Wimbledon semi-finals in 2012 when he last won a Grand Slam title But when asked if he could beat Djokovic again on the big stage he bristled Roger Federer walks back after the loss against Novak Djokovic Getty "Best-of-three best-of-five I can run for four or five hours It’s not a problem I prove it in practice again in the off-season no sweat So from that standpoint I’m not worried going into long rallies" Federer said "I know you guys (media) make it a different case I get that because you think I’m old and all that But it’s no problem for me But it doesn’t scare me when I go into a big match against any player who’s in their prime right now" The world number three is redefining the career trajectory for men’s tennis as he remains among the elite at a time when most players his age have faded or already retired But Federer now working with Ivan Ljubicic — who has an intimate knowledge of Djokovic’s game — is getting no closer to solving the riddle of beating the Serb who won two Grand Slam finals against him last year – ‘Stupid questions’ – The 17-time Grand Slam-winner hit out at "stupid questions" when he was asked if Djokovic now 28 and with 10 major titles could take an even tighter grip on the sport than the Swiss did in his prime "I think it’s hard to keep up that level of play What he’s been doing is amazing I was very happy how I’ve been able to keep up my level" he said "Is it better or not I don’t know I think we’re both all of us with Rafa (Nadal) Novak me (Andy) Murray you name it Stan (Wawrinka) we’re all very happy with our careers" But he took solace from another deep run at a Grand Slam tournament which left him just two wins short of becoming the oldest Australian Open champion since a 37-year-old Ken Rosewall in 1972 "It’s disappointing but at the same time I’m going deep in Slams right now I’m having great runs I thought I had a tough draw here so I’m actually pleased where my level’s at at the beginning of the season" Federer said "Novak right now is a reference for everybody He’s the only guy that has been able to stop me as of late and Stan (Wawrinka) when he was on fire when he was in Paris" he added referring to his loss to Wawrinka in last year’s French Open quarter-finals "It’s okay I wish I could have played a bit better and who knows what would have happened Today Novak was very very good There’s no doubt about it" AFP Full text of Roger Federer’s post-match press-conference courtesy Australian Open website Q Was it disappointing that after you took the third set that you had to stop for the roof closing Roger Federer:Yeah yeah I mean maybe But then again I don’t think that’s where the match played out to be quite honest The match was in a tough spot at that point anyway But maybe with momentum it could have helped I don’t think so We were told beforehand that this could happen It’s fine you know Q You played him many times How good was he in those first two sets RF:Yeah I mean I’ve seen Novak play this well before It’s tough when it’s from the start because obviously you got to try to stop the bleeding at some point you know Because he returns very well like Andre Agassi He can get one or two sets all of a sudden Those sets run away very quickly Before you can really sometimes do something you know 45 minutes a lot of tennis is being played and it’s tough to get back into it I found a way Started to play better myself Made a bit of a match out of it which was nice But still disappointed obviously that it didn’t go better tonight Q In 44 matches before you lost to him only once 6-1 He was playing great but maybe you were a little flat in the beginning or anxious to try to

News Urbanisation is the talk of the town A number of new initiatives have been launched by the government of India in the last two years raising the level of ambition of Indian cities — smart cities clean cities (Swachh Bharat) rejuvenated cities (Amrut) and housing for all The first recognition of the importance of urbanisation after years of neglect by both the Centre and the states came in 2005 when the government of India launched the Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) in December 2005 The mission ran its course till March 2014 with mixed results Public service delivery improved only in cities where state governments provided an enabling environment for innovation and better governance Indian cities mostly remain in very poor condition with respect to public service-delivery and governance For the new initiatives to succeed it is important to recognise that while some funding through the new missions will help as in the case of JNNURM the key issue is whether our cities will be empowered with finances and capacity by the state governments and helped by the government of India Without this private funds will not come forth to supplement the limited funds of the government and the hope of public-private partnership will not materialise There must of course be elected local governments as the Constitution mandates but there must also be greater autonomy to the elected urban local governments in the running of city affairs Unless this is done our cities will not be able to improve the quality of life of their citizens and also play their role as engines of rapid growth In order to explain why cities matter particularly for India’s current stage of development let me begin with some frequently asked questions about the relationship between rapid economic growth structural transformation and urbanisation If we aspire for GDP growth of 8 to 10 per cent per annum which is necessary to improve economic conditions in India and remove/ reduce poverty within a short period this can only be driven by industry and services sectors which can grow much faster than agriculture After having grown at close to 4 per cent per annum during the Eleventh Plan period (2007-08 to 2011-12) agricultural growth in India has slowed down to less than 2 per cent in more recent years Undoubtedly Indian agriculture can and should grow at 4 to 45 per cent per annum and for this we need to make large investments in research and development soil and water management and agricultural extension But rapid growth of GDP will have to be driven by non-agricultural sectors Faster growth of industry and services leads to a decline in the share of agriculture in both GDP and employment This is called structural transformation and should be welcomed Urbanisation occurs when people move out of rural areas into cities in search of employment and opportunity This has been the development experience of almost all countries This is because cities play an important role in developing industries and services By generating economies of agglomeration and by acting as centres of knowledge and innovation they make investments in industry and services more productive India has been among the fastest growing economies of the world for quite some time now In the last 12 years or so (2003-15) the growth rate of GDP was 77 per cent per annum and the latest estimate for 2015-16 shows only a minor dip to 76 per cent However the rapid growth has not been associated with employment growth in non-agricultural sectors The change in the structure of output has not been accompanied by a change in the structure of employment About 50 per cent of the workforce is still “employed” in agriculture even though agriculture contributes less than 15 per cent to GDP With far too many people dependent on agriculture for their livelihoods productivity of labour is low in Indian agriculture as farmers engage in labour-intensive farming This limits their potential to earn a higher income Since it is not possible for the existing rural population to earn a decent living in rural areas they have to and do move to the cities To absorb the exodus of people from rural to urban areas we need to fix our cities We need to provide employment skills and opportunity for people to engage in industry and services sectors Indian cities are simply not ready to support non-agricultural growth of the kind we need They are in a state of disrepair and are visibly deficient in the public services they provide with alarming consequences for public health With rising incomes and the even faster rising aspirations of India’s young population patience is running out Whether it is the severe air pollution in Delhi traffic congestion in Bangalore the floods in Chennai or the garbage menace in a number of cities technology provides only a small part of the solution The larger challenge is that of reorienting the federal framework to strengthen governance The government of India can provide strategic leadership and the new missions are very welcome from this perspective But the funds needed for the missions are much larger than what the government of India has offered or can possibly offer given the competing demands on the financial resources of the Centre The private sector can generate funds for urban infrastructure projects but will do so only if a reasonable return is assured and for this reforms in urban planning finance and management are crucial and state governments will have to be the principal players Public-private partnership works best when it is based on an open and transparent arrangement with a clear assignment of risks backed by an effective dispute-resolution mechanism The Centre can help with a model framework But state governments will have to come on board in a partnership mode with the urban local bodies the community and the private sector to make public-private partnerships work Whether the new national missions will succeed in bringing about urban rejuvenation depends on how much the Centre can nudge/ push the state governments to bring about the necessary reforms The writer is

by Jahangir Aziz | Published: July 5 2016 12:54 am The export-led growth model which all emerging market economies adopted in varying degrees in the 2000s now lies broken and new sustainable engines of growth need to be found Top News It has now been more than a week and so far the fallout from the Brexit vote has been muted Global financial markets were taken by surprise by the outcome but the disruption has been less than feared Fears of a sharp rise in global risk aversion haven’t materialised and it would appear that for now the adverse impact on near-term growth is likely to be limited to the UK and to a lesser extent the EU and Central European emerging markets There are two main reasons why this has likely happened First the direct trade and financial linkages between the UK and the non-EU world are small despite London being a major financial centre and second the actual impact will not only take time to take effect but at present it is also unclear what these are We only know the result of the Brexit vote Brexit hasn’t happened yet Between the vote and the actual exit there is the Brexit process This hasn’t even begun as the UK is still to invoke what is termed as clause 50 of the Lisbon Treaty Once this clause is invoked the negotiations will start which are likely to be long drawn and complicated as these will have to cover a large number of issues that took the EU several decades to agree The Lisbon Treaty specifies a maximum of two years for these negotiations to end Our sense is that even if the exit clause is invoked in late 2016 after the election of the new prime minister in September it will probably take until 2018-19 before the details of the separation are nailed down Once the negotiations with the EU are over the UK will then need to negotiate new cross-border treaties with non-EU countries on trade financial transactions and many other areas This includes the UK’s membership of the WTO which has also been on the basis of its membership of the EU The non-EU countries are unlikely to negotiate ahead of knowing the terms of the EU separation and will likely be in a stronger bargaining position given that the loss or scaling back of a large number of trading relationships upon EU exit is likely to be a blow to UK exporters making the need to get a successor deal more urgent for the UK than for its trading partners Only when these negotiations are over can one with any degree of certainty start assessing the impact of Brexit on the UK economy and its implications for other countries In the meantime uncertainty will rule First there is the economic uncertainty of not knowing what the regulatory and trading landscape will look like in two years which will delay individuals’ and firms’ spending and hiring decisions and if they start believing that things could be worse in the medium term spending could be permanently cut or redirected away from the UK Second there is the political uncertainty While the UK as a whole voted to leave the EU Scotland voted to remain Reports already suggest that Scotland could hold its own referendum on independence and separate membership to the EU The rest of the EU appears torn between fear and fantasy — fear that a UK exit will lead the region to unravel and fantasy that without the UK the Euro area can take a leap forward in terms of integration Neither of these extremes seems very likely Non-mainstream political parties that are hostile to the EU will be energised by a UK vote to leave but no other country in the EU looks likely to call a referendum on EU or Euro area membership However the UK’s referendum has demonstrated that the legitimacy and popularity of the EU project is not at all secure in the eyes of voters And this will likely lead to institutional changes to better balance integration and centralisation perhaps after the German and French elections next year Where does India stand in all this The UK imports about 35 per cent of India’s total exports and the EU about 135 per cent In terms of financial linkages capital inflows from banks headquartered in the EU make up 20 per cent and that from the UK 13 per cent of total bank-related foreign inflows into India As the rise in uncertainty shaves off growth in both the UK and the EU cross-border traffic in trade and financial flows could well slow down However this is likely to affect only specific sectors and companies The larger question is whether these political changes and their possible contagion to other parts of the world restrain global trade further Here are some numbers whose implications should be self evident Over 2003-08 (before the global financial crisis) global trade in volume terms (adjusting for all price changes including the large swing in commodity prices) grew around 75 per cent per year on average Since 2012 it has grown at just about 2 per cent Over these two periods GDP growth in emerging market economies dropped from an average of 7 to 4 per cent India’s exports surged at an annual pace of nearly 18 per cent over 2003-08 as its share in GDP doubled from around 12 to 25 per cent In the last four years India’s export growth has languished at less than 15 per cent annually I haven’t mentioned the comparable GDP growth rates in India over these periods As it should be very familiar to all by now they can’t be compared given the significant methodological changes But just a “feel” test would suffice to establish that GDP growth in India is significantly slower today than during 2003-08 These and other more granular data suggest that the export-led growth model which all emerging market economies adopted in varying degrees in the 2000s now lies broken and new sustainable engines of growth need to be found But barring China no other emerging market economy has started to rebalance its growth drivers In India we are still chasing the export dream This time dressed up as a strategy to gain market share But think about the arithmetic: With global export growth languishing at 2 per cent India needs to keep gaining market share every year almost inexorably to sustain GDP growth anywhere close to its 2003-08 pace If Brexit lowers global trade further this task becomes all that more difficult Rather than using up the limited policy and reform space pursuing this uncertain strategy India needs to introspect and explore new engines of growth Unfortunately the conversation hasn’t even begun The writer is head Emerging Market Economics JP Morgan Views are personal For all the latest Opinion News download Indian
