China will set up a “national security agency” in Hong Kong to oversee a forthcoming new law aimed at cracking down on dissent in the city, state media said on Saturday.The new law also would override any existing Hong Kong laws that may conflict with it once it is implemented, Xinhua news agency said in a report detailing the draft legislation.The report followed the conclusion of a meeting in Beijing of China’s top law-making committee that reviewed draft provisions aimed at snuffing out the pro-democracy movement that has rocked the semi-autonomous city. If Hong Kong laws clash with the provisions of the upcoming legislation, the power of interpretation lies with the Standing Committee of China’s rubber-stamp national legislature, Xinhua added.’Beijing’s hand’ The city’s leader Carrie Lam said Saturday the government agreed with the proposal to establish “specialized departments in the police force and the department of justice” to safeguard national security.In a written statement she said the territory’s government “expressed gratitude” over Beijing’s handling of the situation.But Alvin Yeung, a Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmaker, said the details on what will constitute a crime are “highly vague, which is of course, extremely worrying.” “More importantly, it is almost like Beijing’s hand is getting right in the center of the administrative and judicial reins of Hong Kong.”Leung also expressed alarm at Xinhua’s mention of a separate security “council” to be headed by the territory’s chief executive whose duties would include choosing judges to handle security cases.”What worries me more is if any judges, in the future, when they try the cases and in (rule) favor of the defendant, would those judges be removed? That could be possible,” he said.China’s parliament endorsed the planned legislation last month, sending the draft to the Standing Committee.The Group of Seven foreign ministers on Wednesday urged China to reconsider the proposed law, saying they had “grave concerns” it threatens Hong Kong’s rights and freedoms.In response, senior Chinese foreign policy official Yang Jiechi said at a high-level meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Hawaii that Beijing’s “determination” to introduce the law was “unwavering”.Under a “One Country, Two Systems” agreement before Britain handed the territory back to China, Beijing agreed to let Hong Kong maintain certain liberties and autonomy until 2047 — including legislative and judicial independence and freedom of speech.Hong Kong has been convulsed by a year of huge and often violent rallies that began with an eventually aborted criminal extradition bill but morphed into a popular call for democracy and police accountability.Beijing says the national security law is needed to end the political unrest and restore stability. Xinhua said the Standing Committee would “soon finalize” the legislation.Topics : The fast-tracking of the bill — which is bypassing Hong Kong’s legislature — raised international concern that it will end the financial hub’s limited freedoms and usher in a new era of Communist-style repression.Xinhua gave no details on its make-up but opponents of Beijing’s control have repeatedly voiced fears that the final wording of the law will allow mainland security organs to openly establish a presence in Hong Kong.The future security agency would be established by China’s central government and would “supervise, guide, coordinate, and support” the maintenance of national security in the territory, Xinhua said.Xinhua said the eventual law would criminalize “secession, subversion of state power, terrorism, and colluding with foreign and external forces to endanger national security.”

Mario Balotelli may have more critics than allies at the moment but he will run into two sympathetic opponents when Liverpool host Hull on Saturday. Pundits have lined up to question the Italian’s decision to trade jerseys with Real Madrid’s Pepe while 3-0 down in a crunch Champions League tie, with his own manager Brendan Rodgers seemingly unimpressed too. It is the latest in a litany of controversies to surround the player, whose reputation precedes him. But Bruce, who has vivid memories of one of the game’s most unique characters, Eric Cantona, from their time together at Manchester United, insists Rodgers must support his occasionally wayward asset to get the best from him. “From the outside looking in, it’s been a difficult start for him but you should always appreciate what you’re going to get (with Balotelli). You’ve got to understand that he’s going to be different,” said Bruce. “You have to weigh that up to start with and once you’ve brought him in you’ve got to bear with him. “He’s not everyone’s cup of tea but there’s no doubt about it, he’s got exceptional ability. “Cantona was supposed to be a troublemaker everywhere he went but once you bring a maverick in, you have to work with them. “When they’ve got that maverick in them, you have to handle them differently. They are not the norm. Tigers boss Steve Bruce and midfielder Tom Huddlestone both feel the Reds striker has been harshly judged on his return to English football. Balotelli’s output has not been what Brendan Rodgers hoped for from a player of his pedigree, one goal in 10 appearances hardly commensurate with his £16million price tag, but a half-time shirt swap has created even more controversy. “You make that decision as a manager the minute you bring them in.” Huddlestone, meanwhile, feels the shirt-swap incident has been overplayed. “Everything around him just seems to be blown out of all proportion,” said the 27-year-old. “Everyone just seems to jump on the bandwagon. I watched the game on Wednesday and you physically see Pepe ask him. “To a fellow professional he’s not going to say ‘no no, because we’re losing, I’m not going to swap shirts with you’. “It puts him in a difficult position and I don’t know what people expect him to do. “I felt for him, it’s not as if he sprinted after Pepe and asked for his shirt.” Indeed, while the practice may seem an alien one in English football it does not carry the same stigma on the continent – as Huddlestone found out earlier in his own career. Like Balotelli, he found himself losing heavily at half-time in a Champions League clash – Tottenham’s trip to Inter Milan in 2010. “I’ve been asked the same thing myself, to be fair. When we were 4-0 down at Inter Milan. “Maicon said it to me, coming down the tunnel. I was only 23 at the time, so I wasn’t going to say no. “I actually did swap shirts, I just made sure I hid it out of the sight of Harry Redknapp and everyone.” Despite standing up for Balotelli, Huddlestone admits his team-mates may not be so charitable if they get the chance to wind the combustible Italian up at Anfield. “It depends on how the game’s going, but I’m sure there are a few who will think about asking him to swap on Saturday,” he laughed.

Mumbai Indians become first team to win 100 IPL games.Mumbai Indians now have won 15 and lost 12 encounters against Chennai Super Kings in the IPL.Chennai Super Kings suffered an injury blow in the form of Dwayne Bravo. In the 20th over bowled by Dwayne Bravo, normally a composed bowler, the entire game changed. Pollard launched a monstrous six off a no-ball which notched up Mumbai Indians’ 150 but the last three balls faced by Hardik made the difference. The fourth ball was a yorker from Bravo but Pandya hung back in the crease and unfurled a Dhoni-esque helicopter shot over deep midwicket. The fifth ball was a full and wide ball which Hardik thumped over deep cover but the final ball of the innings displayd Hardik’s class as he carved a full ball over square third man. Hardik’s 25 runs off eight balls and 45 runs in the last two overs, including 29 in the last over, had changed the momentum towards Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings were left reeling. Bad start Chasing 171 on a wicket which provided extra bounce and zip, Chennai Super Kings made a disastrous start when Ambati Rayudu (0) was caught by a sharp short ball from Jason Behrendorff. Lasith Malinga struck in the next over when Shane Watson (5) cut a short and wide ball only for Kieron Pollard to take a leaping catch at point. Suresh Raina and Kedar Jadhav started off in aggressive fashion, with Raina thumping a six and two fours off Behrendorff while Jadhav flicked a six and a four to fine leg off Malinga. However, Chennai Super Kings were dealt a blow when Raina (16) cut Behrendorff to deep backward point only for Pollard to take a stunning catch leaping backwards and holding onto the ball with one hand near the boundary. Jadhav kept finding the boundary on a consistent basis, smashing three fours in an over bowled by Jasprit Bumrah but MS Dhoni struggled for timing and failed to find the boundary. The partnership went past fifty but Hardik changed the game again, this time with the ball. Bowling the 15th over of the innings, Dhoni needed to step up a gear and he charged down the track to Hardik. However, the bowler spotted it and banged a short ball close to Dhoni’s body cramping him for room. The Chennai Super Kings captain had no choice and he limply pulled to square leg to end on 12 off 21 balls. When Ravindra Jadeja fell in the same over, the game was up for Chennai Super Kings. Jadhav hit a fifty and Dwayne Bravo hit a six but it was all in vain and Chennai Super Kings failed to come near Mumbai Indians’ score, which at one point did not look possible after a struggle in the middle overs. Suryakumar fights Chennai Super Kings inserted Mumbai Indians in and they immediately found success with Deepak Chahar getting the big wicket of Quinton de Kock (4). Suryakumar Yadav came in and struck five boundaries in two overs to get Mumbai Indians going. Following the end of the powerplay, Ravindra Jadeja sent back Rohit Sharma (13) and Imran Tahir dismissed Yuvraj Singh (4) with Ambati Rayudu taking a catch close to the long off boundary. Suryakumar continued to fight and despite a scratchy start from Krunal Pandya, Mumbai Indians continued to make progress. Krunal got going with two boundaries off Mohit Sharma and he received some good fortune in the next two overs. In the 13th over bowled by Bravo, he was dropped by Mohit at mid off and in the next over bowled by Shardul Thakur, he was given out LBW but managed to overturn it on review. Krunal punished Chennai Super Kings by launching Tahir over long on for a six. Despite mishitting plenty of shots, Krunal slammed two boundaries off Mohit Sharma before being dismissed for 42.Suryakumar notched up his sixth fifty and when he perished for 59, it seemed Mumbai Indians would fail to put up a good score but that was the time Hardik changed the game. With news emerging that Bravo has suffered a hamstring injury, Chennai Super Kings have plenty to ponder for their next game against Kolkata Knight Riders while Mumbai Indians will be hoping that this win establishes a winning consistency in this tournament. highlights New Delhi: Hardik Pandya’s sensational last over blitz, in which he smashed two sixes and a four off Dwayne Bravo and his three wickets, which included MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja in the same over, proved to the difference-maker as Mumbai Indians got their IPL 2019 campaign back on track with a magnificent 37-run win over Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede stadium on Wednesday. The win was Mumbai Indians’ 100th in the IPL, the first team to achieve this feat and they not only subjected Chennai Super Kings their first loss in IPL 2019, they increased their superior head-to-head record against Dhoni’s side to 15-12 in IPL encounters. The clash between the two three-time IPL champions was dominated by Pandya’s two game-changing moments. The right-hander had come out to bat at a time when Mumbai Indians had scored 125/5 in 18 overs. Hardik signaled his intentions by mauling Shardul Thakur for a 97-meter six over deep midwicket and Kieron Pollard followed him with a six over deep midwicket. Having hit 16 in the 19th over, Mumbai Indians fancied a score in between 150-160. For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
KARACHI, Pakistan (CMC) – Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed believes positive results on the tour of West Indies starting this weekend will be important in boosting team-morale in the wake of yet another cricket corruption scandal.Five players were recently suspended by the Pakistan Cricket Board on charges related to spot-fixing during the just concluded Pakistan Super League, casting a dark shadow once again over Pakistan cricket.Two of the players – Sharjeel Khan and Khalid Latif – were members of the limited overs side and will now miss the Twenty20 and one-day series against West Indies.“I don’t want to comment on the PSL issue but yes, we are going through tough times and we need to do well in the upcoming series to boost our people,” Sarfraz said prior to the team’s departure for the Caribbean on Tuesday.Latif was in good form last September as Pakistan swept West Indies 3-0 in a T20 series staged in United Arab Emirates.The 27-year-old Sharjeel, a dashing left-hander, was in superb one-day form against Australia last January, scoring three half-centuries in five outings despite Pakistan’s 4-1 loss Down Under.Sarfraz admitted that Sharjeel’s free-scoring style, which has already brought him a century and six half-centuries in 25 innings, would be missed in the Caribbean series.“It’s saddening when you lose some players who are perfect for the setup,” the skipper said.“Sharjeel was the type of player who we needed as he was perfect for the contemporary run-and-gun style of cricket.”Pakistan face West Indies on Sunday in the first Twenty20 International at Kensington Oval in Barbados before contesting the remaining three games of the series at Queen’s Park Oval in Trinidad.The three-match one-day series will be played in Guyana April 7-11.
