first_img Indo-Asian News Service MumbaiMarch 16, 2019UPDATED: March 16, 2019 15:47 IST Sunil Gavaskar said no one would be want to watch his story on-screen (India Today Photo)Sunil Gavaskar, one of India’s iconic cricketers, says his life is not interesting enough for a biopic.With biopics on cricketers like Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar and Kapil Dev gaining popularity in Bollywood, does he foresee a movie on his life?”I am really not interested in making a biopic on me. I have a very regular, normal routine life. As an audience, even I do not want to watch it on-screen. Why would people do that then? I was approached with the proposal of a biopic a few times, but I think my life is not interesting for a biopic,” Gavaskar told IANS.Kabir Khan is making a film on India’s first ever victory at the 1983 Cricket World Cup, in which Gavaskar was a part of the winning team.Asked if he met the filmmaker, he said: “Yes, I met Kabir and the kind of conversation that we have regarding the making of the film was more to do with the era of that World Cup Tournament… The journey of the team up to that match. We had a conversation on that regards.””But I think we will meet again to share inputs little later,” added Gavaskar, who is the first batsman known for scoring 10,000 runs in Test Cricket.Talking of the controversial incident involving cricketer Hardik Pandya from the chat show “Koffee With Karan”, when was punished by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for making a misogynistic comment, Gavaskar said that stardom is tough to handle at the beginning of one’s career.advertisementHe said: “I have to mention that it (stardom) is quite a tough thing to handle at the beginning of your career… When you have to constantly improve your game and at the same time match up the expectation of the people as a celebrity or icon.””The attention that you get outside, and then focusing on the game so that you can maintain the attention. That is why it is important that senior players should mentor and guide these youngsters who have already gone through that phase.”Talking about how the relevance of Test Cricket has changed in an era when T20 format is celebrated, Gavaskar said: “Even youngsters know that a cricketer will be remembered in the history based on his performance in Test Cricket. That is classic, that is ultimate.”But because the new generation is playing a lot of T20 and 50 over (ODI) format we are scoring more runs, and test matches have become more result oriented than draws, that used to happen earlier.””That also made a test match more exciting to watch,” said Gavaskar, who is considered to be one of the greatest opening batsmen in the history of Test cricket.Also Read | Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Chhetri receive Padma Awards from President Ram Nath KovindAlso Read | On this day: Sachin Tendulkar scores 100th hundred, Herschelle Gibbs smashes 6 sixes in an overFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Austin Engineering announces three year Vale supply contract

first_imgAustin Engineering has announced the signing of a significant three year supply agreement with Vale. Equipment will be ordered by Vale and supplied in accordance with its requirements, as determined by its ongoing production schedules and equipment replacement programs. Vale has informed Austin that the previous contract was for a total of $200 million and that the current contract will be split between two companies, with Austin receiving the larger part of the contract.The contract in the first year is for an initial value of up to $59 million of equipment. Vale will review its requirements after the first year and then on a six monthly basis in light of its equipment needs and operating budgets. Further amendments to the contract value will then be issued as required. The contract provides Vale with a range of equipment at fixed prices, adjusted as necessary on an annual basis, with cost escalation. Austin’s scope includes a number of products from its product range such as dump truck bodies, buckets and ancillary equipment. Other products “may be considered by Vale as the contract progresses.”Vale has also confirmed that it will discuss with Austin the adoption of scheduled maintenance programs of the kind used by Austin in its Pilbara Hire service and repair business. If these programs are introduced, it will provide Austin a source of recurring reliable repair and maintenance earnings. The ability to plan for the delivery of this work in advance will also assist Austin with maximising efficiencies.The delivery of products will be from Austin’s Chilean and Colombian facilities to the Brazilian border, where Vale will arrange for the crossover into Brazil. Austin will be responsible for the assembly of the products in Brazil. The purchase of two facilities, with existing small workshops and land for expansion, will be pursued in order to enable products to be assembled and maintenance services to be provided. A number of possible sites and businesses have already been identified in Belo Horizonte and Belem. In the interim, assembly will be subcontracted to local service providers. Vale’s other international operations will also have access through this agreement to Austin’s range of products and services from its other worldwide production facilities.The company had expected that initial deliveries would have started in August 2013, however with product requirements, specifications and associated engineering activities yet to be completed, revenue streams from the contract are now expected to commence from March 2014 onwards.Commenting on the contract Managing Director Michael Buckland said “This is a very important contract for the company and it continues our successful strategy for expansion into South America. The contract has been in negotiation for over a year and it is pleasing to bring it to a successful conclusion and for Vale to recognise Austin as a preferred supplier of mining products. We see this as only a commencement of our expansion strategy in Brazil and we are confident that the establishment of operations in the country will lead to orders from other Brazilian mining customers. There is significant potential for exponential growth in revenue and profitability over the coming years from our operations throughout South America.”last_img read more
