stage of the Indian Premier League (IPL) MI defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by five wickets to seal their spot in the IPL play-offs "We have qualified (for the playoffs) but we can’t take these four matches lightly also we need to take momentum to the knockout stage" Sharma told reporters at the post-match conference after Mumbai defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by five wickets Mumbai Indians’ Karn Sharma says his team must focus on the remaining four round-robin gamesSportzpics In reply to RCB’s modest 162-8 Mumbai scored 165-5 with one ball to spare courtesy skipper and man of the match Rohit Sharma’s well-measured innings of 56 not out in 37 balls that included one six and six fours It was MI’s eighth win out of 10 games and they have lost twice only to Rising Pune Supergiant including the only defeat in their home venue – Wankhede Stadium The 29-year-old Meerut-born Sharma who took one RCB wicket today feels leg-spinners have got more purchase from the tracks and hence they have been successful in the T20 League this season "Imran Tahir is number one bowler in T20 and I learnt a lot from him (while interacting with him when Pune played against Mumbai here) In T20 the leg spinners get (more) grip from the wickets even if it is flat or otherwise" said the UP player who had turned out in one Test without much success when India toured Australia a few years ago Seasoned off-spinner Harbhajan Singh missed Monday’s game and Sharma said Singh had some problem in the left-foot "Harbhajan had some problem on the left foot he will be fine for the next match Krunal (Pandya) is fine" Pandya took two wickets in four overs but fell over the ball while chasing a delivery and left the field He however came in to bat at no 6 only to retire hurt at the 14th over after finding it difficult to run properly RCB pace bowler Aniket Choudhary who bowled impressively till his last over conceded that the total put up by his team was short of par for the course "I don’t think so (when asked was it enough) We batted first and we understood how it behaved I think if we had bowled more slow balls we could have stopped them from getting to the target It was a decent wicket but we bowled a few bad balls here and there" With MI needing 30 runs from last 18 balls Choudhary bowled the 18th over and he conceded just six runs in the first five balls but he bowled a wide next and was blasted by Hardik Pandya for a six off the extra ball "As far as last ball is concerned I was wondering whether to bowl him (Hardik Pandya) the slower one or the fast one Maybe it was a match-changing point" Choudhary said "So I went to and asked him (de Villiers) ‘what should I bowl’ And he said ‘maybe he is ready for the slower one so I think you should go with the hard length’ "And when someone as great as AB tells you do to something such a world class player and if he is giving you a suggestion it’s very hard to go against it And I thought he is right "And (captain) Virat (Kohli) wasn’t happy with what I bowled He thought I did the wrong thing and I should have bowled full and slow" he explained The Rajasthan pacer had bowled to the Indian batsmen at the nets prior to the Test rubbers against New Zealand Bangladesh and Australia Asked what he had gained from the experience he misunderstood the question and said: "Gain is that I got Rs 2 crore (at IPL auction)" He soon realised his mistake and added: "It was a very good experience if you are bowling to top Indian batsmen and getting them out that’s where I got noticed by Virat that I’m from Rajasthan and I am bowling well "Once you bowl to the best and get them out I don’t think there is a better way of gaining confidence than that After that whichever domestic competition you go like when I played Ranji Trophy I was very confident It appeared a lot easier then" Asked why such a star-studded unit like RCB has flopped totally this season and have no chance to qualify for the playoffs Choudhary blamed it on misfortune "Maybe bad luck .

proposed visit to Guru Ravidas’s temple in Seer Govardhanpur area of Varanasi on February 22 on Ravidas Jayanti The Society has claimed that the PM’s visit is aimed at securing Dalit votes for BJP in Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh and Punjab Several thousand people from across UP and Pubjab visit the temple on Ravidas Jayanti every year and take out a religious procession Guru Ravidas Janmsthan Public Charitable Trust runs the temple in PM’s constituency while Dera Sach Khand Ballan in Punjab governs it This year Ravidas temple authorities have invited PM who will address the gathering of Ravidas’ followers at Seer Govardhan Head of Dera Sach Khand Ballan Sant Niranjan Das will also remain present at the event Share This Article Related Article The SC/ ST Teachers’ Welfare Society of BHU has written to the trustees of the temple demanding to “review” their decision of inviting the PM In letters sent to Saint Mandep Baba of the Trust and Sant Niranjan Das general secretary of SC/ ST Teachers’ Welfare Society Prof Mahesh Prasad Ahirwar has stated that PM’s visit to the temple was aimed to exploit the religious sentiments of Dalits and misguide them while aiming to get their votes for BJP in upcoming Punjab and UP Assembly polls “I have argued that temple is a religious place and it should not be used for political purpose I have demanded that PM should not be invited at the temple because he will be coming to address gathering for political gains only” Ahirwar a professor in Centre of Advanced Studies in Department of Ancient Indian History Culture and Archaeology in BHU told The Indian Express In the letter Ahirwar has said that incidents of atrocities on Dalits have increased since BJP came to power and Centre has not taken any strong steps to control such incidents “Leaders of Sangh Parivar and BJP and ministers often insult Dalits by their statements From Sangh head Mohan Bhagwat to Lok Sabha Speaker and other leaders all are running a campaign for review of the constitution and abolish reservation system but Prime Minister has neither contradicted their statements nor has expressed government’s view on the issue” read the letter Ahirwar has alleged that interference of RSS and its other offshoots has increased in the affairs of universities and other academic institutes and harassment of Dalit students too has increased after BJP came to power at the Centre “The serious most fact is that the Akalis who had hatched conspiracy for murder of our Saint Ramanand in Varanasi in 2009 have been invited on Ravidas Jayanti which is insult to Ramanand ji who sacrificed his life for the pride of his community” Ahirwar alleged in the letter Ahirwar has also alleged that former VHP president Ashok Singhal had made attempts to take control of Ravidas temple in 2005 by taking out a ‘Chetna Yatra’ from Chittor to Varanasi “How is it justified to invite Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is ready to fulfill the every expectation of ‘manuvadis’”
