lClamp on expat housewives working without permission Heat warning

By Sandeep Singh grewal
HUNDREDS of expatriate housewives working as teachers could be
deported if schools do
not have permission to
employ them.
LMRA inspectors doubled
BAHRAIN has doubled the number of
inspectors working at the Labour Market
Regulatory Authority (LMRA) as it seeks
to crackdown on workers violating the law.
They have been increased from 36 in
2011 to 70, confirmed chief executive
Ausamah Al Absi.
“Our inspectors receive extensive
training and the total number of inspectors from both genders has reached 70,”
he said. Mr Al Absi said inspectors were

“People do not understand the role of

knowledge of a special curriculum,” said Mr Al Absi.
“We realise all that. We are
willing to give special permission for these housewives to
legally work in schools.
“If they approach us we will
grant them permission, but the
only thing stopping them is that
they believe they are immune
because they are schools.”
Mr Al Absi said in the end it
was not the schools that would
suffer the most, but expatriate
families.
“These housewives who are
living on valid dependent family visas are under no illusion
that they are doing something
illegal,” he said.
“They are just told they will
get away with it.
“We are going to catch this
person and deport her and this
will lead to breaking a family
unit here. “The husband and the
children will stay here while
she will be on a plane.
“Those caught working
illegally will be deported and

“I have today cases of fami-
lies desperately trying to
bring back their loved ones
who were caught working
illegally and deported.
“They are promising they
will never do it again.
“But I cannot do anything
in such cases as the law prevents me.”
Mr Al Absi said the
problem had been created
because schools wanted to
avoid paying the application
fee of teachers or monthly
levy of BD10 for each foreign worker, which had been
suspended since 2011.
But he warned schools not
to ignore the warning.
“I am here now saying
that they do not have immunity,” he said.
“I once again would stress
here that the LMRA is willing to transfer the dependant
family visa to a work visa
for those housewives working in expatriate schools.
“When she completes the
two-year employment term
or is sacked by the school
she will be shifted back to
the dependent family visa.”

along with honorary members Stalin

The GDN earlier reported
authorities were restricting
access to prescription painkillers to combat spiralling
rates of drug addiction.
“Our concern is that with
the new policies in place to
manage this disease, it takes
longer to receive treatment
than before,” said Sickle Cell
Anaemia Patient Care president Zakariya Al Kadhem.
“When a sickle cell patient
goes to the emergency room
screaming in pain, they are
considered as addicts and
treatment is delayed.
“Even if they are considered as addicts, addiction is
a sickness and they can be
treated for that but ignoring
the patient is not the way.”
Meanwhile, Mr Al Kadhem
warned more sickle cell anaemia patients die during the
summer due to heat and
dehydration.
He said patients coming
in during this time of the
year should be taken more
seriously as they were more
susceptible to having complications as the temperatures
rise.

Nothing to fear over
new passport rules
Email: [email protected]
BUSINESSES have nothing to
fear about new rules that seek to
stop employers from withholding passports of foreign workers,
says a top government official.
Bahrain is on the verge of piloting a system that aims to tackle the
long-standing problem.
But immigration officials say they
want to create a system that benefits
both bosses and expatriates.
It involves ensuring all workers
are given contracts that clearly outline their duties to prevent exploitation and stop runaway cases by
only allowing them to leave Bahrain
when authorised by their company.
Interior Ministry Nationality,
By SaNdeep SiNgh grewal
Passports and Residence Affairs
(NPRA) Under-Secretary Shaikh
Rashid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa
believes it will end the need for
employers to keep people’s passports.
“I would first like to highlight to
the vibrant business community in
Bahrain that this is not new legislation or procedures that will hinder
their businesses,” he said.
“The job contract should basically outline the exact responsibilities of the employee, which should
be accepted by him or her.
“They should read and understand this contract in which the
employer can specify their terms
and conditions which should respect
Bahrain’s laws.
They can bring this job contract
agreed by both parties to the NPRA
and will enter the details in our system that this employee cannot leave
the country without the permission
of his employer.
“There will be no need for the
employer to withhold the passport
of this worker.”
Shaikh Rashid pledged the government would be “reasonable”
when considering what jobs would
be covered by the new system.
“For example, a person handling cash, goods, expensive
items among others would fit
the criteria,” he said.
“We want to create awareness
among employers that there could
be a system put in place that will
benefit them and their workers.”
Shaikh Rashid said the NPRA
was ready to introduce a pilot study
before it is officially rolled out and
could receive applications online.
“There could be a small office
set up depending on the volume of
applications we receive,” he said.
“Once the details are entered in
our system, this particular employee can leave Bahrain only if it is
authorised by his employer.”
Shaikh Rashid earlier this month
warned employers who withheld
passports of foreign workers.
“A passport should be with its
holder. Full stop,” he told the GDN.
“The passport is the property of
the respected issuing state and does
not belong to anybody else. We
need to respect that.”
The official said Bahraini businessmen in the 60s and 70s did not
have computers or technology to
catch workers who stole from their
companies so kept their passports as
a form of insurance.
“The population has increased
globally, so has the businesses,”
he said.
“But it is unfortunate that this
habit continues and we have many
cases.”

Finding the least
bad option...
T
By Dina EsfanDiary
he French, the British and the UN have
confirmed that chemical weapons (CW)
have been used in Syria. But what
happens next is unclear. The options for
intervention depend on what the purpose of
such a mission would be – to find and secure
the CW, or to tip the balance in favour of one
side.
In an interview on national television on
Tuesday, the French foreign minister Laurent
Fabius said France was certain that CW had
been used by ‘the (Assad) regime and its
supporters’, based on evidence ‘all along the
chain’.
The UK was less specific, confirming that
tests on victims’ blood samples conducted in
government laboratories proved that a small
dose of sarin gas had been used, but it did
not reveal when or where the samples were
obtained. A second set of samples obtained by
the French army corroborated the use of sarin.
The UN was even less clear. According to
its report on human-rights abuses in Syria,
investigators have ‘reasonable grounds’ to
believe that CW had been used in limited
attacks in Aleppo, Damascus and Idlib between
March and April. But further evidence was
needed to determine what was used, and by
whom.
The report did not provide any new
information, which raises questions about its
purpose. Given the general scepticism over
CW allegations and the still-fresh memories
of the Iraq debacle, it is likely the UN report
was intended to give the assertions increased
legitimacy. After all, intelligence from an
independent team of experts with UN backing
may seem more credible than information from
a single country.
Unsurprisingly, the US hasn’t followed suit.
Despite insisting that French statements were
‘consistent’ with White house findings, the
US Press secretary stated, ‘we need more
information’. Many will criticise America’s
cautious attitude to what appears to be blatant
disregard for Obama’s ‘red line’.
I myself was sceptical about the use of CW
until recently. Without access to victims and
affected areas, it is very difficult to ascertain
the use of banned CWs. And once this is
confirmed, it’s even harder to obtain evidence
that identifies a perpetrator, in this case Assad.
It could equally have been a rogue general.
Admittedly, Assad’s regime has the expertise
to create the mixture of chemicals that was
used, but the mobilisation of a co-ordinated
international response to the use of CW must
be based on more concrete information.
That also leaves the question of what exactly
could be done if it were established that Assad
had used his CW arsenal. The quick answer is,
not much.
Intervening with guns blazing will solve
nothing, unless there are 75,000 troops
available to wade in and secure Assad’s large
and dispersed arsenal, in the midst of a civil
war in which a large number of participants
are ill-disposed to Westerners. Intelligence on
the location of Assad’s storage and weaponsbuilding facilities would also have to be
watertight.
The Israelis have called for military action
to ‘curb’ Assad’s CW arsenal. What kind of
action they are calling for is unclear. Air strikes
are the go-to option for Israel in situations
similar to this. In fact, in early May, Israel
carried out two separate air strikes reportedly
targeting shipments of Iranian-made missiles
to hizbollah, but those were conventional
weapons. Air strikes targeting CW facilities, at
best, risk leaving a few canisters and agents
untouched, leaving them vulnerable to looting.
At worst, they risk releasing chemical agents
into the atmosphere.
If the goal is not to secure the weapons,
but to tip the balance in favour of one side
over another, then there are more options. But
none of these will assist in the daunting task
of ensuring that Syria’s CWs are safe from
being transferred elsewhere, and secured so
nobody can use them. This could well be part
of the reason behind America’s scepticism
to acknowledge the use of CW by the Assad
regime. Acknowledging its use would mean
something would have to be done, and right
now, there are no good options.

somebody his country should be
proud of. Teaching is a noble profession, with so much dedication
being imparted to students, not
just in teaching things but moulding them to have good moral
character.
It’s not an easy task, but I guess
they need to appreciate that they
are not just getting a certificate
but benefits they will enjoy for the
rest of their lives.
Teacher’s benefits must be reviewed. First, their accommodation
allowances. For 15 years they have
been receiving BD130/110 (family visa). This amount is the lowest
rent for bachelors for an unfurnished small room.
Where can you find a flat nowadays for that amount which can
accommodate a family with three or
four children? How about other bills
such as electricity/water etc? Just a healthy
reminder. Children grow, as well their expenses. Flat rent increases every other year, but
a teacher’s salary is raised once every six or
eight years. Shocking and funny to know, but
that’s the truth.

2000 - In a setback for UN SecretaryGeneral Kofi Annan, Lebanon rejects

International media and Iran’s agents have
launched against our beloved country since
February 2010.
The thugs who attacked the innocent and
unsuspecting victim have in fact done so in
retaliation for an “Injustice” that they believe
was committed against them thousands of
miles away; namely in Pakistan itself the day
before, when a blast took the lives of many
Shi’ite Pakistanis.

Gemini May 22nd - June 21st
– they do a great job!
does not view the terror act in Pakistan as
that; a terror act in another country. But views
the world as one liquid space in which Shi’ite
minorities have been victimised and as such
are looking for vendetta.
“The War Of Spawns” started over three
decades ago when Persia become the Islamic
Republic of Iran, but only succeeded with the
invasion of Iraq and the advent of the “Arab
Spring”. The Madman’s Greater Middle East
became a reality thanks to Iran’s agents who
slowly but surely, like all forces of decay, managed to infiltrate societies and plant seeds of
alienation.
International human rights groups and
media did the rest by portraying hard core
extremists as advocates of democracy and
civil law activists, very well aware all the while,
that they are giving legal and logistic aid to
individuals who plan to inflict terror on anyone who did not secede to their rules.
The advocates of the Greater Middle East
have so far succeeded in liquidating modern
day boundaries between many countries in
Africa and are dismally succeeding in a great
part of the Middle East. International media
all the while reporting matter-of-factly about
conflicts crossing borders as if it were always
the order of the day. The superpower has
successfully blurred long-recognised states’
borders in order to draw new ones.
Only Bahrain remained defiant, but the
forces of decay refuse to let it be. In order to
be able to save our beloved country from the
Madman’s greed we have to acknowledge
that the failure of 2010 coup was not as complete as we have hoped.
They say there are no failures as far as
terrorism is concerned, only rehearsals.
“Liquidating” the borders in the collective
conscience of Bahrainis was not successful
so far, but they are working on it. In closed
underground communities the so-called
“Opposition” is spreading doctrines of hate
based on “injustices” committed across the
world. In a cult-like setting, followers suspend
their actual reality for an alternative global
one. The blast of Pakistan is no more a case
of Pakistanis killing fellow Pakistanis; but
of Sunni Pakistanis killing Shi’ites. The race,
nationality and locality of the attack are no
longer relevant;
the “Injustice”
is universal and
so must be the
vendetta.
In his recent
address to his
followers on
immigration
laws, Ed Miliband, head of the Labour Party of
Britain, addressed the successes and failures
of immigrant integration in the British society.
He said that the economic and political integration was far more successful than the social one. He also noted that social integration
was far more successful in cities like London
than in rural areas.
The sharp politician had summed up the
problem and the solution in one go, as indeed studies have shown that communities
where children of diverse backgrounds have
attended school together are the most successful in social integration.
Grimly enough, adverse forces in Bahrain
appear to be fully aware of how to create social rift when none existed and are currently
working on “reverse” techniques. Their first
targets were schools and continued to be so
until parents in many such targeted schools
were forced to move their children to other
schools out of fear for their safety.
Examples of such rifts are also present in
Quran Sunni circles where Shi’ite students
were welcome to attend in the past but recently unfortunately, many were banned from
attending, over similar security concerns.
The wedge id being dug deeper amid
echoes of retaliation on both sides and if we
are not vigilant and quick then the plot that
failed in 2010 would succeed in a decade’s
time, when the “Spawns’ tactics” have born
their fruit. Didn’t the head of Al Wefaq himself
“promise” us that only a year ago?
We must act fast and use science and
spread the knowledge amongst the common
man about the techniques of alienation, victimisation and social divide.
We must acknowledge that our enemy is
methodical and precise, but still human and
will use tried and tested techniques. It is now
apparent that our society needs to be reintegrated. Let us use the enemy’s science against
him.
Dr Amin Al Araby
We need to talk...
M
ODerN technology can be so tempting. The phone is sitting there, asking to be used. These brand new gizmos
even have the Internet on them. So, you
stretch out on the sofa, fiddle with a few
buttons and fire off an e-mail. To the person in the next room.
A survey of 2,000 parents found that
half of them admitted to texting, emailing or phoning family members even
when they are in the same house. Some
of them claimed that their partner or
child couldn’t hear them if they shouted.
Some admitted that they were just too
lazy to get up and speak to them in person.
That’s what people told the survey, anyway. The truth is likely to be much more
nefarious. What better way to discuss the
time for lights out with your husband
without the kids hearing than a sneaky
text? It’s a gift for Dad to be able secretly
to do his daughter’s homework without
letting her Mum know with a quick exchange of e-mails. If anyone could invent
an app for doing piano practice without
leaving the comfort of the sofa that person would make a fortune.
Children can now discuss the essential idiocy of their parents and only
be discovered with the installation of
expensive equipment that the oldies do
not know how to work. Midnight feasts
can be arranged online. Too long a spell
on the iPad can be interrupted by a pop
up e-mail that warns against the modern equivalent of too much TV turning
your eyes square. The opportunities are
endless and without so much as a word
spoken.
Technological connection is great
when the children move out and family is dispersed. The modern family is
electronically connected to the tune of
1,768 texts, 520 e-mails and 68 hours on
the phone every year. But it might not
do any harm to go and have a chat every
now and then. A real one, involving actual spoken words.
Herbert Grimes
A few practical choices may need to be made. Get
as much done as soon as you can, so that you have
time left over to enjoy the day. You have the means to
boost your income if you wish. If you have a chance to
pamper yourself, why not treat yourself to a massage,
or at least consider a well-deserved shopping spree.
Tonight could turn out to be full of fun.
Cancer June 22nd - July 23rd
A surplus of energy may have you going in every direction. While you may feel high-spirited, you might
also prefer to use this energy on projects that are
deeply fulfilling. Overall, it can be a good day filled
with pleasant happenings. Why not connect with a
friend, enjoy a short trip, or make plans for a special
evening? Be generous and considerate to a loved one.
Leo July 24th - August 23rd
If a novel kind of invitation turns up for a special afternoon or evening, you’ll likely enjoy the way it turns
out. Innovative ideas garnered while you’re chatting to
friends or business associates may pay off if taken a
step further. It can also be a positive day for some retail
therapy and generally splashing out on a few luxuries.
It’s certainly a good time to reward yourself!
Virgo August 24th - September 23rd
A moneymaking idea, or perhaps a new career plan,
may feel instinctively right. It may be time to contemplate a new move that could help you forge ahead.
Your business instincts seem to be on target, so pay
attention if you feel the urge to call someone or take
a specific action. A healthy body makes for a healthy
mind, so keep doing whatever it takes to stay fit.
Libra September 24th - October 23rd
Pursue social interests, especially if they involve activities that encourage you to move in new directions.
It’s also possible that despite worries, financial news
today may be just what you want and need to hear.
It’s a good time to connect with professional people
- especially in a social sense. Physical activity can also
bring glowingly healthy rewards.
Scorpio October 24th - November 22nd
With Saturn in your sign, the cosmos may be encouraging you to substitute negative feelings for more
positive ones. Forget about new ambitions today, and
instead congratulate yourself on all the things you
have already achieved. The social buzz may encourage
you to get out with friends or call up a romantic interest. Desires may be strong right now.
Sagittarius November 23rd - December 21st
Your job and professional life may move forward, as
signs of success reveal how much effort you’ve put in
lately. This is no time to be modest. If you have something you want the world to know, find the most efficient way of getting your message across. However,
don’t spend all day working, if you can fit in something
fun as well.
Capricorn December 22nd - January 20th
The chances are that you’ll be noticed for any skills
and talents you have, and for your contribution. The
more you apply yourself, the more you’ll enhance your
reputation. A social invitation may have some appeal.
Today may be ripe for all kinds of shared activities. It
can also be a good day for a leisurely shopping trip
with friends or family.
Aquarius January 21st - February 19th
There’s a chance to breathe new life into a family relationship or friendship. A change in perspective may
mean you see things in a new light. If you’re thinking
about giving your place a new look, you’ll have plenty
of helpers on hand. Don’t miss out on the social side
of things. If you get a party invite, why not accept? You
may be in the spotlight.
Pisces February 20th - March 20th
There’s plenty of information flying around, so don’t
be surprised if a tip you receive provides the answer
to a troublesome issue. Refurbishing an old item may
have more appeal than buying something new, especially if you enjoy this sort of thing. Your social life
shows promise, but someone may be shy. You might
need to get the ball rolling.
Aries March 21st - April 20th
Activities with friends, or an invitation to a get-together, may lift your spirits. Someone with special appeal
may show up and make going out tonight a very
worthwhile event. If you’re looking for romance, this
may be one of the best times to put in some effort.
Diet wise, it may be easier to pile on the pounds right
now, so try to avoid comfort eating.
Taurus April 21st - May 21st
Good news may come your way, but you might have to
keep it to yourself for a while. Desires may be compelling, and you might be tempted to go overboard with
spending. The Moon in Virgo, suggests that your partner or love interest may be quite attentive. Make today
a special one for both of you. Do something exciting, or
just spend quality time hanging out together.

The column everyone is reading – on Sundays and Tuesdays..!
C
hewing the fat dinner parties,
where talk of politics flows as
thickly as the borscht and the
prose is almost as purple, seems so
infrequent these days.
People are more into Twitter than
building or dissecting erudite
arguments.
The craving for speed in news
aggregation seems to have come at
the expense of considered reasoning.
It is frippery to the fore – more people
know about Kim Kardashian than
Kim Jong Un, even though the latter
is capable of nuking you and has a
far more assertive hair style!
Andy Warhol spoke of everyone having
their 15 minutes of fame, but now it
is more like 15 seconds in terms of
time taken to appear on Twitter or
YouTube, certainly less time than it
takes to say: “Campbell’s Soup.”
Cars on the Shaikh Khalifa bin Salman
Highway travel at marginally less
pace than the speed of light and
the imposition of travel bans comes
faster than Al Wefaq’s daily bleats
about the National Dialogue.
Yet everywhere else there is stodgy
processing and slowness, despite
calls to
complete
projects
and developments,
cut red

that the
people
in the
“Ministry
of FollowUp” are
putting boots to bureaucratic bums.
Court cases remain unsettled for
years, especially in the wake of
tragedies such as dhow sinking,
accommodation fires and alleged
loan frauds.
Then there are the airline closures,
stalled building developments and
investment programmes simply put
on hold due to alleged chicanery.
So many announcements girding
actions, yet so long to bring
proposals to fruition.
So many calls by the Cabinet for
matters to be sped up, for red tape
to be cut!
There are
letters from
exasperated

bureaucratic
morass,

problems

The issue of trucks crossing to Saudi
Arabia remains unresolved after five
years, while “urgent” plans to allow
trucks to gather at a temporary site
announced in mid-March have not
yet started and drivers still spend
days parked under the burning sun,
waterless and loo-less.

by W.W.
If it took an organisation with
that level of clout so long to get
action, what hope is there for the
populace?
Recently, we had our bank return a
cheque because there was a tiny
squiggle at the base of the number
“2” in the year 2013.
The cheque was returned by a courier
company, with a beautifully typed
report stating the bank’s need to
be alert to fraud – all signed by a
“manager” and duly carrying the
bank seal!
But what of the cost in time, funds,
rewriting and representing?
Enormous!
Did the bank really think that any
forger would merely change the
year date?
Maybe the signature or the amount,
but the year?!
Sadly, so much has slowed because
we have lost that old friend
“common sense” – once the
sharpest knife in the drawer for
dealing with red tape.
And that is a pity.

A whale of a dilemma...
AUTHORITIES are still deciding what
to do with a decaying dead whale found
washed up off the coast near Budaiya.
The 12-metre long animal was spotted
marooned on a reef last Thursday and is
believed to have died more than a week ago
in deep sea and drifted to Bahrain.
The decaying body has been emitting a
foul odour and authorities have warned area
residents to stay clear.
Fisheries and Marine Resources Directorate
By Ahmed Al OmAri
adviser Dr Jassim Al Qaseer said a team of
experts were sent to examine the carcass and
the feasibility of moving it.
But he said the whale was too decayed and
too large to move in one piece.
“The whale had been dead for a long time
before drifting from deep waters to Bahrain,”
he said.
“Local currents washed it up on a reef near
Budaiya so the body is actually not on the
coast.
“We sent a team down there to see what
was happening and to try find out what happened but the body was far too rotten.
“Because of this it will be very difficult to
move as it is falling apart.
Also it is too big to move in one piece.”
The Supreme Council for the Environment
has been assigned the task of removing the
carcass, which is proving an issue, but Dr
Al Qaseer said its body was not a biological
hazard.
The GDN previously reported that it could
take at least five days to move the whale’s
carcass.
Experts have found it difficult to
identify the type of Cetacean due to its
advanced stage of decay and have suggested
that the species might be alien to Gulf waters.

Bottling Company public
relations manager and Thirst
Quenchers founder Leila
Rajkumar.
“It was a call to young
people to actively take part in
community service.
“At one point, we had 150
people taking part.
“However, when the
(unrest) problems started,
people got a little scared and
didn’t want to go to certain
areas.
“The numbers dwindled.”
By LaaLa Kashef aLghata
Ms Rajkumar is encouraging
everyone to come forward and
join the group.
“Thirst Quenchers isn’t an
organisation or association, it’s
just formed by volunteers,” she
said.
“I’m hoping that the numbers
will increase once again.
“I would love for more people to come forward.”
More than 1,000 bottles of
cold water and 1,000 Fanta
Citrus cans have been handed
out since this year’s campaign
got underway.

Volunteer Fatima Yousif, 25,
has been taking part since 2009.
“I saw an article about them
in the GDN,” she said.
“I got in touch with Leila and
I’ve been with them ever since.
“Even if what we’re doing
isn’t life-changing, we get to
help a few people.
“I think the psychological
factor is important, trying to
help and reach out, even if it’s
small.”
The Bahraini said labourers
were usually touched by the
gesture.
“The reaction from labourers
is usually heart-warming,” said
Ms Yousif.
“We get to hear them call us
sisters and brothers.
“Usually, there’s not a lot of
interaction between us because
we drive past them.
“Here we feel the heat for
a little while and it puts us in
their shoes.
“This type of volunteering
isn’t something that always
attracts people, since it involves
walking in the heat.
“But it’s really rewarding,
especially with children, since
it develops volunteering spirit
in them.”
The Thirst Quenchers also
put together gift boxes for
needy families to help during
Ramadan and distribute cooked
meals at labour camps.
“The Ramadan drive is done
two weeks before Ramadan,”
she said.
“We ask people to donate

contents, whichever is easier.

any parents make the
mistake of not checking up enough on their
children’s baby teeth with the
thought that they are going to
be replaced by permanent teeth
later.
Royal Bahrain Hospital
(RBH) general dentist Dr
Gurpreet Kaur clears up the
questions of many parents.
“The most important thing
parents should know is that
baby teeth should not be
neglected,” she says.
“They should be careful of
any accidents or cavities that
happen.
“Baby teeth serve for several
important functions, so it is
important to keep them healthy
and cavity free.”
They are also very important
for the development of permanent teeth.
“They are extremely essential
to the development of a growing
child’s jaws by preserving space
for adult teeth,” says Dr Kaur.
They also serve as spacers which maintain the proper
spacing and alignment of teeth
so that permanent teeth have
enough room to come in.
Additionally, if any accident
occurs to a milk tooth, it can
damage the permanent tooth in
the jaw bone so any injury to
baby teeth should be checked.
If left untreated, hidden damage due to facial injury can
cause harm to the developing
permanent tooth.
Dr Kaur highlights that caries
in baby teeth must be treated.
“Even untreated caries in
milk tooth can lead to caries in
its successor tooth known as
pre-eruptive caries,” she says.
“Poor dental care can easily
lead to childhood periodontal
disease.
“This is a condition in which
bacteria invade the gums and
ligaments supporting the teeth.
“Unchecked, periodontal disease can cause teeth to fall out
and bone to erode, creating major
problems for permanent teeth if
and when they do come in.”
Dr Kaur continues to explain
how they are important to a
child’s healthy growth.
“Firstly, baby teeth are crucial to healthy feeding and

Cheap funding schemes sought
MADRID: Spanish Prime Minister Mariano
Rajoy yesterday called on the European
Central Bank (ECB) to create a cheap funding scheme for small businesses, mirroring
those used by authorities outside the euro
zone to try and get credit flowing via banks.
Rajoy, who has previously urged the
ECB to change its collateral rules to help
smaller companies access financing at better conditions, said the ECB could emulate
plans such as a Bank of England (BoE)
scheme.
BoE launched a ‘Funding for Lending’
scheme in mid-2012 aimed at encouraging
banks to give credit by providing them with
cheap financing.
“I would like the ECB to act like other
central banks, to do as the BoE has done
– giving cheap loans to financial entities
so that these financial entities can lend at
cheaper rates to small and medium-sized
companies,” Rajoy said at an event in
Tarragona, northern Spain.
Small companies in southern Europe
are having to pay higher rates for financing than those in other EU countries,
a problem exacerbated by a prolonged
recession in Spain.
The country’s banks have also been crippled by the end of a property boom that saddled them with soured assets, forcing them
to take big losses on these deals.
As credit dried up, a record number of
Spanish companies went bust in the first
quarter of 2013. Rajoy said Spain was also
trying to kickstart more funding schemes
that did not involve banks, including by
opening up bond markets to companies currently too small to access them.

UK urges G8 to close
global tax loopholes
LONDON: Britain turned
up the pressure on other rich
economies to clamp down on
secretive money flows at a
summit next week by pressing
its overseas tax havens into a
transparency deal and announcing new disclosure rules for
British firms.
Prime Minister David
Cameron wants to make
progress on closing global
tax loopholes when he hosts a
meeting of leaders of the Group
of Eight economies in Northern
Ireland tomorrow and Tuesday.
“It is important we are getting
our house in order,” Cameron
said in a speech in London
yesterday after representatives
of overseas tax havens linked
to Britain agreed to sign up to
an international transparency
protocol.
“It is a very positive step forward and it means that Britain’s
voice in the G8 and the campaigning on this issue around
the world for proper taxes,
proper companies and proper
laws ... will be stronger.”
Ten territories and selfgoverning regions will join
the Multilateral Convention
on Mutual Assistance in Tax
Matters which has been agreed
by more than 50 countries.
They also pledged to produce
plans on how to provide more
information on the ownership
of so-called shell companies.
Those included in the agree-
n Protesters wave placards and flags during an anti-G8 demonstration ahead of the summit at
Belfast City Centre yesterday
ment were Bermuda, British
Virgin Islands, the Cayman
Islands, Gibraltar, Anguilla,
Montserrat, Turks and Caicos
Islands, Jersey, Guernsey and
the Isle of Man.
The convention will help
developing countries trying
to trace money they suspect
belongs in their state coffers,
to request tax information from
offshore centres.
Also the British government said it will introduce new
domestic rules to combat tax
evasion and money laundering, by forcing shadowy “shell”
companies to throw off their
cloak of anonymity and reveal
who really runs them.
Under the new British rules,
companies will be required to
obtain and hold information
on their ownership and con-
trol which will then be held in
a central registry, available to
police and revenue agencies.
Chancellor George Osborne
said it was essential that
British law enforcement and
tax authorities had access to
information about the ultimate
owners of companies, and it
was time for others to act.
“These commitments demonstrate concrete action we are
taking ourselves but it is vital
that we take collective international action through the G8
to tackle the challenges of tax
evasion, money laundering and
illicit finance,” Osborne said.
But aid campaigners said
Britain’s action will count for
little if the rest of the G8 – the
US, Japan, Canada, Russia and
Europe’s biggest economies –
does not follow suit.
“The acid test of the prime
minister’s efforts will be
whether he delivers a G8 deal
that clamps down on tax haven
secrecy and phantom companies, and will help poor countries collect the money they
need to end the scandal that
sees one in eight people go
to bed hungry,” said Enough
IF campaign spokesperson
Melanie Ward.
It represents more than 200
anti-poverty campaign groups.
A consultation on the design
of Britain’s new rules, including whether the register of
beneficial ownership should be
publicly available, as sought by
anti-corruption campaigners,
will be published by the government in the coming months.
Global tax evasion could be
costing more than $3 trillion
a year, according to researchers from Tax Justice Network
while as much as $32trn – twice
the size of US gross domestic
product – could be hidden by
individuals in tax havens.

Democrats
blocking
Obama’s
trade push
WASHINGTON: President
Barack Obama is aggressively pushing an ambitious
agenda to liberalise global
trading.
But already political trade
wars are forming, and they’re
with fellow Democrats rather than with Republicans, his
usual antagonists.
Obama is promoting freetrade proposals with Europe
and Asia that could affect up
to two-thirds of all global
trade.
The ambitious deals
would reduce or eliminate
tariffs and other trade barriers. But there’s trouble
ahead for both the TransPacific Partnership and the
Trans-Atlantic Trade and
Investment Partnership – at
the negotiating table and
from Congress.
The deal with Europe will
be a top item this coming
week in Northern Ireland at
the Group of Eight summit
of major industrial democracies.
The Asia pact was
brought up pointedly by the
new Chinese president, Xi
Jinping, in his California
meetings with Obama last
weekend.
Republicans historically
have supported free-trade
agreements far more than
have Democrats, and a politically weakened Obama may
not have enough secondterm clout to successfully
twist the arms of enough
Democratic lawmakers.
Some Republicans who
usually vote for easing trade
barriers may vote “no” just
because the agreements will
bear Obama’s signature.
Both deals generally have
the support of US businesses. But labour unions
and human rights and environmental groups – core
Democratic constituencies
– have so far viewed them
cynically.
These organisations, and
Democrats in general, say
that free-trade deals can cost
American jobs and lead to
environmental and workplace abuses that would not
be tolerated in the US.
“We certainly have concerns,” said Celeste Drake,
a trade and policy specialist
at the AFL-CIO, the nation’s
largest labour federation.
Obama worked to overcome Democratic resistance
to win passage in 2011 of
trade pacts with South Korea,
Panama and Colombia, completing negotiations begun
by his Republican predecessor, President George W
Bush.
The talks for a new AsiaPacific free-trade zone came
up in the Obama-Xi meetings last weekend.

Fed policy in spotlight
NEW YORK: Stock investors eager to hear
from the Federal Reserve about its plans for
continuing economic stimulus may get some
soothing words from the US central bank
next week.
The Fed is unlikely to tip its hand about
when it may begin to scale back its bondbuying programme, but policymakers still
may be inclined to try to tamp down recent
volatility in financial markets with some
mention of the issue.
The rally in stocks stumbled and
Treasury bond yields rose to 14-month
highs following chairman Ben Bernanke’s
comments that the Fed may decide to
begin scaling back its quantitative easing
in the next few policy meetings if the
economy improves.
As part of its quantitative easing policy,
adopted more than four years ago, the Fed
has been buying Treasury and other bonds
each month to keep interest rates low and
promote growth.
Interpreting Bernanke’s words and recent
signs about the economy have roiled markets since then. The Dow industrials climbed
200 points in eight of the 17 sessions since
Bernanke’s comments, and its daily average
swing has been 191.5 points.
“What (Bernanke) has done is create what
I call an early summer market storm, not a
huge one but enough to cause people to
become a little nervous,” said D A Davidson
and Company chief market strategist Fred
Dickson.
Stocks ended a third negative week in
four. The Dow fell 1.2 per cent, the S&P 500
slid 1pc and the Nasdaq lost 1.3pc
Next week might offer a bit more clarity,
he said, but probably not the details many
investors are hoping for. Still, analysts said,
the Fed may want to say something to
remove some of the markets’ anxiety.
The markets have priced in a sea change
and seem to think that rates are going up
soon, said Wedbush Equity Management
managing director Stephen
Massocca.
But “I think the Fed is not
going to want that to be the
market’s impression,” he said.
The news may be that any change is going
to be gradual, he added.
Comments from Fed policymakers in
recent weeks have added fuel to the guessing game. Views have ranged from favouring continuing the stimulus policies for
some time to starting the process of winding
down quantitative easing in the near term.
But Bernanke’s views hold the most
weight, so investors will likely be on edge
awaiting his comments. The Fed chairman is
due to give a news conference at 2:30pm on
Wednesday shortly after the Fed’s policy
committee ends a two-day meeting and
issues a statement.

Although earnings have taken a back seat
to Fed talk, forecasts for second-quarter
profits have come down in recent weeks.
Growth is forecast at 3.2pc, down from an
April 1 forecast of 6.1pc, and negative preannouncements have outnumbered positive
ones by a ratio of 6.9 to 1, according to
Thomson Reuters data. That would be the
most negative ratio since at least 1996.
Investors worry speculation about the
Fed’s course alone may have been enough to
spark the long-feared pullback in stocks,
which have rallied for most of this year.
Even with recent losses, the S&P
500 is up 15pc for the year to
date.
The benchmark index is down
2.5pc since May 21, but there
have been short-lived rallies in that period.
Also the gains in bond yields since
Bernanke’s comments caused investors to
rotate out of high-yielding dividend stocks.
Dividend stocks had been among the market’s leaders as investors favoured those
shares over fixed-income securities in a low
interest-rate environment.
The Dow shot up 200 points and scored
its best day since January 2 after the US
employment report for May showed 175,000
jobs were created, a positive sign but not
strong enough for the Fed to abandon stimulus efforts to aid the economy.
“As we see mixed signals in terms of
economic growth from across the
globe, a marginal tapering can have
significant effects,” said BB&T
Wealth Management senior vicepresident Bucky Hellwig.
“What would happen if the
tapering is too soon, I think, is that
it puts risk into financial assets,
both equities and bonds.”
Among next week’s economic
reports, the Consumer Price Report
for May is due on Tuesday along
with data on housing starts.

n Shaikh Nasser and Shaikh Khalid at the race venue
By PATRICK SALOMON
AL NASSER were last
night crowned champions of this year’s
Batelco-sponsored
Bahrain First Division
Volleyball League.
Nasser claimed the champions’ trophy following a thrilling 3-2 (19-25, 25-17, 25-19,
18-25, 15-11) victory over
Al Ahli to sweep their bestof-three finals series in two
games in front of a large crowd
of supporters at the Bahrain
Volleyball Association (BVA)
arena at the Shaikh Isa Sports
City in Riffa.
Nasser came away with their
13th league title with the result.
Following the match, BVA
president Shaikh Ali bin
Mohammed Al Khalifa presented both teams their respective trophies and medals, in
the presence of officials from
Nasser and Ahli, the BVA, and
sponsors Batelco.
After claiming a three-set
sweep in the finals’ first game
last week, Nasser headed into
yesterday’s contest determined
to continue their good form.
But Ahli were just as unwavering in their bid to keep their
title hopes alive. Gunning for
their first-ever crown in the
first division, Ahli powered
to an impressive six-point
win in the first set behind the
good play of Moroccan professional Zakariya Maghrabi
and Bahraini talents Jaffaer Al
Haiki, Ali Habib and Ali Sirefi.
Nasser
bounced
back
in the second set and found
their groove behind the dominant partnership of Puerto
Rican import Jackson Rivera
and Bahraini star Younes
Abdulkareem, who were once
again the maestros in orchestrating Nasser’s leveling the
contest at one set apiece.

and Hassan Dhahi.
In the third, Ahli took a quick
lead but Nasser fought back
behind their brilliant defensive
play at the net. Four straight
points from their superb blocking helped them take a 23-18
lead, and Abdulkareem eventually secured the set with a
decisive spike.
Nasser’s celebrations didn’t
last long, however, as Ahli kept
battling them point for point
starting off set number four.
Al Haiki then helped Ahli pull
away from their rivals with at
19-15, and then a Sirefi shot
sealed the seven-point win for
his team to once again square
things off and send the match
into a decisive fifth set, tied
at 2-2.
In the clincher, a Dhahi block
followed by a Rivera spike
made it 3-1 to Nasser, and
that appeared to have sparked
their final surge for the crown.
But Ahli would not go down
without a fight, and they tied it
at 5-5 and before continuing to
keep their rivals within striking
distance at 8-9.

Nasser took over from there.
Khalifa scored to make it 12-9,
and later Abdulkareem put
them on the brink of the victory with his own fine effort for
a 14-11 lead.
Nasser were then gifted the
match-winner. A wayward
Ahli spike went directly out of
bounds to close things out and
seal Nasser’s triumph.
With their clinching of the
league crown, Nasser now
move on and look to claim
a league-and-cup double when
they battle amongst Bahrain’s
other top teams in the Crown
Prince Cup competition, which
starts next week.
The tournament will be
played at the same venue, and it
will be another hotly contested
affair to capture the prestigious
trophy.
Fitness
They also had some swimming sessions in one of
Germany’s pools in order to
maintain their physical fitness level and stamina.
Shaikh Nasser and Shaikh
Khalid had a field visit to the
venue of the race, which is
located near the old Berlin
Airport, as they completed
their registration procedures,
and were briefed by organising committee representatives on latest steps undertaken to prepare the stage.
Later on, Shaikh Nasser
and Shaikh Khalid attended
the technical meeting to
inform the participants the
routes of all three contests,
as well as explaining the
rules and regulations of the
race.
In a statement issued after
the meeting, Shaikh Nasser
said the 2013 Berlin Ironman
will not be an easy task
on anyone, noting that this
triathlon has become one of
the major attractions for the
Bahraini youth and aims to
encourage this young generation to practice all kind of
sports on daily basis.
Shaikh Nasser affirmed the
readiness of all the Bahraini
athletes taking part, whom
he described as ‘excited and
determined’ to accomplish an
honorable result and improve
on their personal records.
On his part, Shaikh Khalid
said the presence of the
Bahraini athletes in such an
international competition is a
great opportunity for them to
meet other participants with
better records and learn from
their experiences.
He noted the difference
between swimming in the
sea, and in this case in a
river, which has stronger
currents and requires the
participant to have physical
strength and high fitness in
order to complete the race
in time.

the final
Manama ease
past Muharraq
By PATRICK SALOMON
MANAMA took down
mighty Muharraq 82-70
while Al Ahli outclassed Al
Hala 65-51 in the Golden
Square semi-finals last night in the
Zain Bahrain Basketball League.
Both games were played at a jampacked Zain Basketball Arena in Um
Al Hassam.
Yesterday’s results forged a threeway tie on the Golden Square standings,
with Manama, Muharraq and Ahli each
boasting identical 2-1 win-loss records.
Hala stayed winless after three games.
Each team now has another three
contests remaining before the end of this
semi-final stage. Only the top two teams
at the end of the double round-robin
move on to the best-of-five championship series.
The Bahraini big three of Mohammed
Hassan, Ahmed Abdulaziz and
Mohammed Hussain combined for more
than three-quarters of Manama’s output
in their all-important victory last night
against defending champions Muharraq.
Hassan led all Manama scorers with
24 points, while Abdulaziz added 22
and Hussain 20. Senegalese professional and former NBA player Pape Sow
chipped in with nine points.
American import CJ Giles paced
Muharraq in their first loss with 24
markers. Ali Abbas had 16, Ahmed
Hassan 13, and Bader Abdulla Malabes
11.
Manama took control of the game
in the very first half and never looked
back. A Hussain three-pointer gave
them their first double-digit lead of the
night at 26-16, and it was followed by
an Abdulaziz triple and fast-break layup that extended their advantage to 15.
Muharraq tried to fight back in the second period, led by Malabes, but could only
get to within 32-45 at the half.
In the final 20 minutes, Manama had
an answer for each Muharraq surge, and
they did well to hold on to their big lead
en route to the final whistle.

In yesterday’s other game, Ahli used
an 11-0 run to start the second quarter to
turn a 10-13 deficit after the first right
around. Things remained close until the
end of the third, when a Hussain Salman
three-pointer cut Ahli’s lead to 43-44.
Hala then regained the lead with an
Ahmed Mirza three-pointer that made it
46-44 to start the final canto. But then
Ahli unleashed a game-changing 14-3
run capped by a Hussain Shaker three
that made it 58-49, putting them in the
lead for good.
Shaker finished with 18 points to lead
the victors, while Ivory Coast professional Lamizana Mamadou added 15 as the
only other Ahli player in double-figures.
For Hala, US import CarlGalloway
had 12 to lead his team in the low-scoring affair, while Ahmed Mirza added
11 points.

Brazil rout Japan for winning start
BRASILIA: Hosts Brazil opened the
Confederations Cup with a comfortable 3-0
win over Japan early this morning although
the occasion was marred when police fired
teargas at protesters outside the Mane
Garrincha National Stadium.
A stunning third minute goal from Neymar
set Brazil on their way before Paulinho ended
Japan’s challenge by adding a second three
minutes into the second half of the Group A match.
Substitute Jo completed the scoring in stoppage time as the hosts,
playing their first competitive match since the Copa America nearly
two years ago, dealt competently with the Asian champions who created some nice moves in midfield but lacked punch.
Some fans in the 67,000 crowd had to be treated for the affects
of tear gas fired by riot police at the protester who are angry at the
cost of building stadiums for
the tournament and next year’s
World Cup.
Inside, the football crowd
were treated to a competent
Brazilian victory by Luiz
Felipe Scolari’s men who are
looking for a third successive
Confederations Cup success
after winning the tournament in
2005 and 2009.
The game came alive after
three minutes when Neymar
scored a stunning goal, smashing home a right foot shot from the
edge of the box after a long cross from Marcelo was chested down
by Fred.

rolled in an 18-foot birdie putt in fading
light at the 18th hole to grab a share of the
lead in Friday’s second round of the US
Open when play was suspended due to approaching darkness.
The putt gave Mickelson a round of two-over-par
72 for a total of one-under 139 and tied him with
fellow-American Billy Horschel, who fired a dazzling three-under 67 on a brutally difficult day at the
weather-delayed championship.
The pair were perched atop a jam-packed leaderboard that had five players one shot back and another
five golfers one more stroke adrift, with tournament
favourites Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy well within
striking distance at three-over par 143.

Mickelson, the clubhouse leader after shooting an opening round 67 before lengthy weather delays suspended
Thursday’s first-round play, held the lead for much of
Friday before back-to-back bogeys from the 12th.
“I wasn’t expecting birdie there. It’s a very difficult
hole,” said the left-hander, who had three-putted the 12th
and failed to get up-and-down after half-plugging his ball
in the greenside bunker at the short par-three 13th.
Birdie
His 18th hole birdie was his first of the day.
“I got shut out today,” he said, exasperated at not
taking advantage of other birdie chances. “I played
really well. I didn’t feel the score was what I thought
it should be.”

That lifted the massed ranks of the fickle yellow-shirted home

failed to build on that early goal and Japan came into the match with
Keisuke Honda in particular making inroads in midfield.
Japan, who started with only
Shinji Okazaki as the nominal front man, began to look
increasingly dangerous with
some incisive moves through
the middle but they never seriously troubled goalkeeper Julio
Cesar.
Despite allowing Japan some

came
from behind to beat defending champion Tommy Haas
3-6, 6-3, 6-4 and reach the
Gerry Weber Open final
yesterday.
Federer lost last year’s final
to the German veteran but he is
on course for his first title — in
his second final — of the year.
Federer will play Mikhail
Youzhny in today’s final.
Youzhny upset second-seeded Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-2 in
less than hour.
“It’s a good win for me,
especially after losing the first
set,” Federer said. “I felt I
played well from start to finish,
even in the first set.”
Federer is seeking his
sixth title on grass in Halle,
his favourite warm-up for
Wimbledon. Four of Federer’s
seven Wimbledon titles have
come after triumphs in Halle.
While Federer fired 15 aces,
Haas finished with nine doublefaults. Two consecutive ones at
the end of the third game of
the final set gave Federer the
decisive edge.
“This was my best serving
by far this week,” Federer said.
Youzhny broke serve for
a 2-0 lead and never looked
behind. Ha raced to 4-0 in the
second and wrapped it with a
volley winner.
Youzhny is seeking to
become the first Russian winner in Halle since Yevgeny
Kafelnikov’s last of three titles
in 2002, the year before Federer
began his run of five.
Federer has beaten Youzhny
in all of their previous 14
matches, including the semifinals in Halle and the quarterfinals of Wimbledon last year.
TOKYO: Rugby minnows Japan claimed
their first win over
Six Nations champions Wales yesterday after a
clinical display against an inexperienced Welsh side sealed a
23-8 victory that squared their
two match series.
Second half tries by inside
centre Craig Wing and openside
flanker Michael Broadhurst,
who both qualified to play for
Japan after completing residency requirements, and 13
points from the boot of fullback Ayumu Goromaru helped
secure their biggest win to date.
“I’m really proud of the
players,” Japan coach Eddie
Jones was quoted as saying by Japan’s Kyodo news
agency after the win at the
Chichibunomiya Stadium. “We
have created history today. We
are the first Japan team to beat
a top 10 team in the world.”
Wales, shorn of the majority
of their first team who have
been selected to tour Australia
with the British and Irish Lions,
dominated possession and territory in the opening half but
struggled to turn that into

in the rain-affected Aegon
Classic yesterday.
Waiting for Vekic in
today’s final will be another
Slovak, Daniela Hantuchova,
who beat Alison Riske of the
United States 5-7, 6-1, 6-4 in
the other semi-final.
Riske had to play twice
yesterday, finishing off a
three-set quarterfinal win
over 2011 champ Sabine
Lisicki of Germany after
it was stopped at 2-2 in the
third on Friday by bad light.
Vekic, who turns 17 in two
weeks, also beat Rybarikova
en route to her first final in
Tashkent, Uzbekistan, last
September in her main draw
debut on tour. That was
also the last time she passed
the second round in a WTA
event until this week.
Hantuchova, the beaten
finalist in 2011, will be looking for her sixth title from
her 15th career final.
Murray and Cilic set up final clash
LONDON: Top-seeded Andy
Murray and defending champion Marin Cilic will contest the
title today at Queen’s Club after
both claimed three-set victories yesterday.
Murray, the champion in 2009 and
2011, rallied to defeat fourth-seeded
Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 4-6, 6-3,
6-2 in a repeat of their 2011 final, and
fifth-seeded Cilic of Croatia held off
former four-time winner Lleyton Hewitt
6-4, 4-6, 6-2.
Murray will play for his 27th career
title and first since he won at Key
Biscayne in March, while Cilic will be
bidding for the 10th title of his career.
His last tournament victory came in
February on home soil in Zagreb.
Edge
Tsonga held the upper hand over
Murray in the opening set of their semifinal, failing to convert any of his three
break points at 2-2 but breaking to lead
5-4 when Murray double-faulted.
The Frenchman missed two more

break points at 3-3 in the second set
before Murray broke for a 5-3 lead when
Tsonga netted a backhand.
In the last set, Murray broke for 2-1
on his seventh break point, and all but
secured victory when he broke again at
love to lead 4-1. “I think most of the
matches there has been patches where I
played a high level, and all the matches
it’s been parts where, you know, I have
been a little bit inconsistent or just played
a couple of sloppy games,” Murray said.

Kohli in action against Pakistan
metres world champion Veronica
Campbell-Brown has tested positive
for a banned diuretic, sources close
to Jamaican athletics revealed.
The sources said the doping
violation occurred at the Jamaica
International Invitational meeting
on May 4 in Kingston.
Campbell-Brown, who won the
Olympic 200 title in 2004 and
2008, is Jamaica’s most successful
female athlete and the biggest
name in track and field to fall foul
of the drug testers since disgraced
American sprinter Marion Jones.
Jones served a six-month prison
sentence and was stripped of
the five medals, including three
golds, she won at the 2000 Sydney
Olympics after admitting to using
performance-enhancing drugs.
n Pedrosa claims pole
MONTMELO, Spain:
Championship leader Dani
Pedrosa grabbed pole position
for today’s Catalunya grand
prix when he recorded the
fastest ever lap at Montmelo
near Barcelona yesterday.
Spaniard Pedrosa completed the
circuit in sweltering heat with
a blistering time of 1:40.893
on his Honda. Yamaha pilot
Cal Crutchlow of Britain was
second fastest, with Pedrosa’s
compatriot, world champion
Jorge Lorenzo, third quickest on
another Yamaha.

PAKISTAN
BIRMINGHAM: India defeat-
ed a disappointing Pakistan
side on the Duckworth-Lewis
method yesterday in front of a
sellout crowd at Edgbaston here after
a series of rain interruptions resulted
in three revised victory targets.
The Indians reached their final target of
102 from 22 overs with 17 balls to spare
in bright evening sunshine after dismissing
Pakistan for 165 from 39.4 of their allotted
40 overs.
Opening batsman Shikar Dhawan, who
scored 114 and 102 not out in the first two
group matches, again top-scored for the
winners with 48 from 41 deliveries.
The final match in Group B had no bearing on next week’s semi-finals as India had
already qualified while Pakistan were eliminated after losing their first two matches.
There was still plenty of pride at stake,
though, in what was only the third competitive match in England between the two

sub-continent rivals. All 24,000 tickets were sold
within three hours of going on sale in November.
On the day it was the Indian supporters who
were celebrating after Mahendra Singh Dhoni had
won the toss and elected to field.
Nasir Jamshed (2) was caught at second slip by
Suresh Raina pushing forward to a full delivery
from paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Wicketkeeper
Kamran Akmal, promoted to open in an attempt to
bolster the fragile Pakistan top order, and Mohammad
Hafeez took the total to 50 from 12 overs before the
players went off for a brief rain break.
Nibbled
On their return Hafeez (27) nibbled at the first
ball of the 13th over from Kumar and was caught
behind by Dhoni, diving to his right.
Akmal then followed for 21 attempting to drive
off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin. He got an
inside edge which flew off Dhoni’s left thigh to
Virat Kohli at leg-slip.
Ashwin was getting significant turn and Dhoni
called up a short-leg to add to the pressure when
the rain came again and the players left the field
for more than 2-1/2 hours with India 70 for three
off 19 overs.
After the resumption Ravindra Jadeja struck a blow
by bowling Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq for 22.
Misbah had scored 96 not out and 55 in his
previous two innings.
British Open champion Louis
Oosthuizen pulled out of the US
Open on Friday, citing a strained
hip flexor.
The 30-year-old South African, who
clinched his only major title at the
2010 British Open, opened with a
five-over-par 75 at the Merion Golf
Club then withdrew before the start
of his second round.
Oosthuizen recorded his best US
Open finish at Congressional in
2011 when he tied for ninth.

SYDNEY: Leigh Halfpenny
contributed 30 points as the
British and Irish Lions crushed
the New South Wales Waratahs
47-17 with some thrilling running
rugby to claim a fifth win in five
tour matches yesterday.
Coach Warren Gatland had said
this was not a shadow test team
but few would complain if the
same line-up, particularly the
backline, were to run out to face
the Wallabies in Brisbane in the
first match of the three-game
series next weekend.
Halfpenny scored two tries in
four minutes around halftime.
