Captain Paras Khadka century helps Nepal register maiden ODI series victory

first_img India Today Web Desk DubaiJanuary 28, 2019UPDATED: January 28, 2019 22:11 IST Nepal celebrate their victory over UAE (Photo tweeted by @paras77)HIGHLIGHTSNepal beat UAE in the third ODI to win the series 2-1Paras Khadka became the first Nepal batsman to hit an ODI centuryKhadka smashed 115 off 109 balls as Nepal gunned down 255 for their maiden ODI series winCaptain Paras Khadka became the first batsman from Nepal to hit a century. Khadka smashed 115 off 109 balls as Nepal gunned down 255 against the United Arab Emirates (UAE) at the ICC Academy, Dubai on Monday. Nepal won by four wickets to register their maiden series victory in ODIs.A historic, come-from-behind series win had looked unlikely as UAE racked up 254/6, the highest total of the series, batting first, especially for a side who had been bowled out for 113 in the first ODI between the sides.UAE’s total was especially impressive considering they had slipped to 47/4 early in the piece, with a wicket each for Sompal Kami, Karan KC, Sandeep Lamichhane, and Khadka limiting their early progress. A doughty 45 from CP Rizwan helped repair the damage, but still, as they found themselves 122/4 after 38 overs, it seemed they might struggle to make 200.The Nepal fans go WILD after their side secured a historic ODI series win in Dubai! #UAEvNEP pic.twitter.com/oKFwYBgsOHICC (@ICC) January 28, 2019That they breached 250 was down to a remarkable late surge courtesy of Shaiman Anwar (87 off 70) and Mohammad Boota, who finished with 59* off 21. Mohammad Naveed struck his first two balls for six and four to apply the afterburners, and Nepal were left a little shell-shocked at the break having conceded 55 runs from the last three overs of the innings.Nepal fans having a fantastic time at the @ICCAcademy in Dubai as their side near a maiden ODI series win! #UAEvNEP pic.twitter.com/UcSCWsEO8mICC (@ICC) January 28, 2019They quickly shook off any cobwebs, recovering from the early loss of Binod Bhandari for 9 to whittle down their target in a series of semi-substantial partnerships. Though after Khadka’s hundred the next highest score was a mere 31, there was enough support to ensure that Nepal stayed ahead of the game, while the wickets lost kept the match interesting.advertisement”This is the beginning.” @paras77 reacts to Nepal’s historic ODI series win and praises their fans who cheered them to victory today in Dubai! #UAEvNEP pic.twitter.com/YeKj97KgpRICC (@ICC) January 28, 2019Khadka was undoubtedly the star of the show, leading from the front as he has so often done for his country. His 115, coming at better than a run a ball, was a masterful knock, considering the pressure of a large chase and a must-win game. By the time he was dismissed, Nepal needed 40 runs in 10.1 overs, and only an almighty collapse could see them lose.Considering the flair for the dramatic Nepal have shown throughout their time in international cricket, such could not be discounted, but Aarif Sheikh and Sompal added cool unbeaten 20-odds to seal victory and send the sizeable band of travelling supporters into raptures.Also Watch:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Toyota quarterly profit quadruples forecast upbeat on recovery from disasters

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Toyota quarterly profit quadruples, forecast upbeat on recovery from disasters TOKYO – Toyota’s quarterly profit more than quadrupled to 121 billion yen ($1.5 billion), and the automaker gave upbeat forecasts as it recovers from a sales plunge caused by the tsunami in Japan last year.Japan’s No. 1 automaker forecast Wednesday that profit for its business year ending March 2013 would soar to 760 billion yen ($9.5 billion). Net profit plunged 30 per cent to 283.6 billion yen ($3.5 billion) for the just ended business year.The annual results were better than the company projection for a 200 billion yen ($2.5 billion) profit, as well as the FactSet estimate at 279 billion yen ($3.49 billion). That, along with the jump in profit for the January-March quarter, is a sign of a turnaround from last year’s tsunami that hobbled Toyota production around the world.Toyota’s profit for January-March the previous year had been dismal at 25.4 billion yen because of the damage from an earthquake and tsunami that hit March 11, 2011. Flooding in Thailand, which disrupted supplies, added to the decline.Toyota President Akio Toyoda acknowledged the hardships, but also pointed to the strong yen, which erodes the overseas earnings of Japanese exporters such as Toyota.“Our vision is to establish a strong business foundation that will ensure profitability under any kind of difficult business environment,” he said.“But thanks to the concerted efforts of our employees, suppliers and dealers, we were able to recover production and sales faster than anticipated and achieved a strong result.”Toyota, which makes the Prius hybrid, Camry sedan and Lexus luxury models, said its vehicle sales grew in Japan, Europe and Africa, but not in North America. However, it is regaining market share there.The automaker expects to sell 8.7 million vehicles this business year, 1.3 million more vehicles than the nearly 7.4 million vehicles sold for the year ended March.Rising gas prices and concerns about global warming are major plus factors for Toyota and other Japanese automakers that excel at producing compact fuel-efficient models.Toyota’s image suffered in North America over a series of massive recalls since 2009, and its U.S. sales fell last year. But its sales and market share in the U.S. have almost recovered.“It’s no secret that Toyota had a tough year last year due to the production fallout from the Japanese earthquake. In the last few months though, Toyota has made big strides to regain the U.S. market share it lost to its competitors,” said Edmunds.com senior analyst Jessica Caldwell.But she warned Toyota needs to keep coming up with new products to maintain its recovery momentum amid intense competition.Toyota faces an increasingly powerful Hyundai Motor Co., a resurgent General Motors Co. and Volkswagen AG, who all remain hard to beat in key growth markets such as China.Toyota’s sales for the business year ended March 31 totalled 18.58 trillion yen ($232 billion), down 2 per cent.January-March sales rebounded to 5.7 trillion yen ($71.3 billion), up 23 per cent from 4.6 trillion yen a year earlier.The comeback at Toyota is playing out at other Japanese automakers.Last month, Honda Motor Co. reported its January-March profit jumped 61 per cent on robust car and motorcycle sales, and forecast record global sales of 4.3 million vehicles for this fiscal year.Nissan Motor Co. reports fiscal results Friday.Toyoda, the grandson of Toyota’s founder, vowed to lead a full turnaround, promising a range of products targeting emerging markets, in addition to established markets.“In recent years, we have suffered periods of hardship,” he said. “This year, I am determined to show tangible results.”Toyota shares closed unchanged at 3,145 yen ($39) in Tokyo, shortly before earnings were announced.___AP Auto Writer Tom Krisher in Detroit contributed to this report.____Follow Yuri Kageyama on Twitter at http://twitter.com/yurikageyama by News Staff Posted May 9, 2012 8:36 am MDT read more
