Irfan" echoed all around the stadium The left-arm seamer obliged them by accepting their phones and clicking selfies from outside the stands It was a poignant moment thatbrought back memories of the sort of following Irfan enjoyed when he was at his prime helping India win matches From signing autographs to taking selfies cricket fanaticism has changed a lot over the years but the one thing that hasn’t changed is the craze for Irfan Pathan It’s been almost four years since Irfan played his last international match for India but he still garners tremendous fan following across the nation and on the social media too There has been a certain emotional attachment for the fans @IrfanPathan gets a lot of support every time he plays in Mumbai This was after the final yesterday pictwittercom/nFUDNDEIcV — Moulin (@Moulinparikh) January 21 2016 Lately his fans have a lot to cheer about as after going through a tough phase marred by injuries Irfan is hitting all the right notes Against Uttar Pradesh in Lucknow he bowled in First Class cricket for the first time after two years He made an impact in the short time he hadand ended the Ranji Trophy campaign with 14 wickets from three matches at 1350 He also contributed with the bat to notch up 139 runs from four innings at 3475 including a 98 against UP Surprisingly considering he was never in contention Irfan was then named the captain of the Baroda team for the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy He led from the front to guide them to the final showing glimpses of his old self as he ended up the highest wicket-taker with 17 at 1576 and also contributed with crucial match-winning knocks down the order racking up 200 runs at an average of 40 and strike rate of 15267 File picture of Irfan Pathan Getty Firstpostcaught up with Irfan at the Wankhede Stadium talking about about swing bowling his performance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament captaincy and a whole lot more: Seventeen wickets 200 runs in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and a decent Ranji Trohy campaign after being hampered by injuries and missing out on on-field action for so long How did you achieve this turnaround Look obviously the good thing was my fitness has been really good this season so that was really the most important thing for me For any bowler or cricketer if the fitness is good he can excel with histalent — no matter how little it might be For me that was very important and then when I played my Ranji Trophy matches I bowled lot of overs as well and it does help when you keep bowling spells I bowled long spells as well in whatever matches I played So when you bowl long spells that are seven or eight-overs-long and then return to bowl with the old ball the body gets in the habit of repeating the action and taking the load So that has really helped me I started feeling lighter and I am able to control the ball because of that as well For any cricketer playing four-day cricket is a must to keep in rhythm and shape so for me that’s been really helpful I am actually feeling very good mentally And it’s when you feel good mentally that you can actually excel in your performances Before the season a lot of things were going on (this is not the time to elaborate on them) But all I wanted to do is just focus on one thing: Just to go out there and take every opportunity I get So that focus has been really good and also the fitness that’s why I’ve been able to perform really well You played some crucial knocks in the Ranji Trophy as well how have you evolved as a batsman over the past few years I really worked on my bottom hand I’ve been working on it for the last two years which is paying off for me this year right now I wanted to make sure I control the bat really well with both hands Sometimes I used to only play with the top hand and I really want to thank Milap Mewada who was the assistant coach of Baroda; he really helped me out last year with my batting and even Sanath Kumar the previous coach I’ve been talking to some of the other guys as well in terms of batting Since both my hands are working so nicely I am able to manoeuver and hit the big shots as well When you can do both that’s when — as a batsman — you are in control and that’s why I feel I am in control Because my both hands are working so nicely I am able to maneuver and hit the big shots as well When you can do both that’s when as a batsman you are in control and that’s why I feel I am in control: Irfan Pathan Getty Images Have you made any technical adjustments to your bowling Not really But as a bowler and as a cricketer you want to go one step ahead Even in my batting I want to go one step ahead So I want to continue working on that But there is always one step ahead So what do you consider yourself right now: A batting all-rounder or bowling all-rounder Definitely a bowling all-rounder I am leading the pack at the moment and bowling in difficult situations as well So I am definitely a bowling all-rounder But when I am going to bat I think like a batsman You led Baroda to the final of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy this season how has your captaincy experience been So far it’s been wonderful The guys are responding really well I want to be the bowler’s captain in terms of understanding them Being a bowler I understand what all the bowlers go through so I give them a free hand I really think handling your cricket is one thing and handling other players is another thing because there are so many things going on in the team and elsewhere too which you need to manage in a subtle way I think it just makes you a more understanding person Do you think the captaincy has added pressure on you The way I am playing right now you can see the positivity Actually more than captaincy the extra responsibility has helped me play really good cricket and freely as well at the same time Most importantly when you enjoy your cricket personally you’re going to be able to handle the other things in life and other players as well quite nicely How has captaincy changed you as a person It hasn’t changed me as a person But you’ve got to learn so many things When you are just a player you don’t realise there are so many things going on but as a leader you need to manage everything It’s just that extra responsibility which makes you a moreunderstanding person rather than just a better person For me I really think performing well or not performing well doesn’t make any difference to my personal life For me my family is the most important thing I am leading the pack at the moment and bowling in difficult situations as well So I am definitely a bowling all-rounder But when I am going to bat I am thinking like a batsman as well: Irfan Pathan Getty Images What does Baroda need to do to translate the T20 success into longer format That’s a very good question There are lot of things that need to be done I really think there’s one thing that I needed in T20 cricket was to make sure that each and every player — youngsters or seniors — was given a free hand to play their cricket In cricket there is a lot of pressure and if you put extra pressure on them then they aren’t going to perform well So you need to have the right balance That’s the one important thing thatneeds to be done Things are good right now Jacob Martin the coach is handling this team really well Guys like him work really hard with you and that helps We saw glimpses of the old Irfan Pathan in the Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy swinging the ball and taking wickets do you think you’ve got your swing back It was never about me losing my swing It was just about performing A lot of people talk about swing pace but eventually it just comes down to taking wickets So I don’t want to be bothered too much about what people are saying — about whether I’ve got my swing or I haven’t As long as I am performing well beating the batsmen hitting the pads I am really happy Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh admitted that once you have played international cricket for a long stretch it is hard to pick yourself back up for domestic cricket Did you find it difficult to stay motivated in the domestic arena I am a different breed yaar Even if I go and practice all by myself I am always motivated When I leave my home sit in the car and am driving to the ground I am really looking forward to it Cricket is my passion When you are passionate about something you will never go lethargic It’s never been the case in so many years of my cricketing career even in practice that I became demotivated I am always motivated As a swing bowler you are always up against the conditions domestically How do you succeed in such unfavourable conditions You need to make sure that you keep evolving continuously Thisis very important If you just keep doing the same thing then you become predictable If you are not going to evolve you’re actually going to be left behind This season I want to make sure I can control the ball while swinging it both ways not just one That’s where I want to get better So far things are going really well but inshaallah things are going to get even better You said bowlers need to keep evolving so what are the challenges of swing bowler in Indian conditions First of all the basics don’t change: The areas for the swing bowler The area for the swing bowler and area for the seam bowler is going to be different So you need to know your strengths Area for the fast bowler is going to be different as well For the swing bowler you need to hit the lengths that are slightly fuller You need to be ready to accept that there are going to be balls that will be hit for four If it doesn’t swing you are going to go for runs But you need to make sure that you keep at it In Indian conditions most of the batsmen stand outside the crease and if you don’t have a good bouncer or if you are not persistent with that (full) length and attempt to bowl short then you won’t get wickets So for me personally that one thing (sticking to your lengths) is very crucial For me cricket is passion When you are passionate about something you have aim in life you will never go lethargic It’s never been the case in so many years of my cricketing career even in practice that I got demotivated: Irfan Pathan Getty In this day and age where the bats are getting bigger and boundaries getting smaller what’s the secret to being a successful fast bowler You need to know your areas and strengths and set your fields accordingly Every bowler has his own different strength Zak’s (Zaheer Khan) strength was that he used to hit the seam in the right position regularly Ashish Nehra has different strengths Agarkar had different strengths and in the same way Irfan Pathan has different strengths The day the bowler learns of his own strengths he becomes really successful So what’s your strength My strength is hitting the seam and getting late swing For me the length is very crucial In the last couple of years in domestic cricket pitches are either absolutely green or rank turners What’s your take on it I can’t sayright now what sort pitches need to be made Alot of things go on in terms of home advantage — which is sometimes fair as well because some of the teams needed outright wins and that’s why they go for it I can’t comment whether it’s right or wrong But if you keep playing on a pitch that is true — with 50-50 chances for bowler and batsman — that’s when the cricket improves With the recent selection of Ashish Nehra Harbhajan Singh Yuvraj Singh the selectors have gone for form over age Has that acted as a catalyst for your motivation That’s fantastic news for each and every player who’s playing domestic and First Classcricket in India That makes me really happy as well that makes me even more focused That means I just want to keep continuing my work and along the way if I stay fit for a longer period of time and keep performing things will happen Are you eyeing the ICC World T20 for a return to the national side I am just eyeing doing well for whatever team I am in What are your goals for the 2016 season For me the season has been really wonderful so far I just want to continue like this and keep building on what I have done so far I am pretty sure 2016 is going for an amazing year for me personally as well as professionally We’ve seen fast bowlers retire at a younger age compared to earlier Mitchell Johnson’s retirement tookk everyone by surprise How can a bowler attain longevity in this day and age In the past there wasn’t much cricket played and there used to be a lot recovery time in between nowadays there is a lot of cricket But there are no complaints from me The more cricket the better it is for cricketers It’s a career as well a lot of families depend on it so there’s nothing wrong in having lot of matches The amount of cricket cricketers play in 10 years now is as much as they used to play in 16 or 18 years So the years have reduced but the amount of cricket they play has been nearly the same It’s an individual choice So as long as they think they are doing well and they stay fit they need to keep playing Do you think Test cricket is dying I don’t think so It will never die That is the form of cricket that really improve’s a cricketer’s cricket So it will always be there By: PTI | London | Published: April 27 2016 1:09 pm Michelle Williams thought she was

25000 people were on the Girgaum Chowpatty beachfront having waited a long day to watch the cultural line-up at the Maharashtra Night event The first task for fire officials was to ensure the flames don’t spread until fire tenders reach the spot “I saw some sparks and immediately realised that a fire had started I ran up to the stage to alert the dancers to get off and then went backstage to clear the people from the green room area where the vanity vans were parked” said Chief Fire Officer P Rahangdale By the time people realised he added the fire had already started growing at the seaside venue due to a high winds Apart from the winds the fire got aggravated within minutes due an LPG cylinder blast By now evacuation was in full force Share This Article Related Article The raging fire soon burnt the tyres of the two cranes that were holding the lighting equipment above the stage The two fire engines stationed at the venue were then called in to manage the fire on the stage The process of evacuation meanwhile was a relatively smooth one Rahangdale said a point to note was the organised manner in which all the guests stayed clear of the cordoned area as they moved out “There was good coordination with the police as well as the volunteers on site who helped evacuate the people and also remove the metal detectors to clear the access for fire engines” he said The additional fire engines and tankers called in from 14 fire stations across the city which were delayed owing to traffic congestion were able to control the fire by 946 pm and ultimately put it out by 1124 pm after which the cooling process began “There were some hurdles to get access to the fire because of the bamboo structures and metal detectors which had to be removed After the fire was doused we removed the planks that had been burnt in the fire and completed the cooling process by about 230 am” said Kailash Hiwrale Deputy Fire Officer According to BMC officials about Rs 4 crore was spent on creating the stage that comprised mostly of cloth and wood among other decoration material A diary entry has been made at the D B Marg police station and samples of the debris sent to ascertain the cause of fire Senior officers are now waiting for the BMC’s report following which the police will probe into the possibility of sabotage if any Meanwhile it was the monotonous safety drill done repeatedly by the police which officers claim came in handy on Sunday night The “perfect coordination” was attributed to the fact that everyone in the police knew their role The rescue operation carried out by the Mumbai Police and firefighters won them plaudits both online and offline “As soon as the fire went off our men who had the evacuation procedures ‘drilled in their heads’ began the process of evacuation In the confusion that ensued once they realised that a fire had broken out several people had forgotten their bags and other valuables they were carrying While they initially fled some of them starting coming back to find their belongings Our men stopped them from coming back and also deterred any outsider from entering the beach premises All our men started directing people nearly 25000 as per the capacity outside through various exit points to ensure people did not come into each other’s path and there was no fear of a stampede” said an officer There were over 600 dancers and performance artistes who were actually in the direct line of the fire The police also helped them break the green room and all of them ran towards the sea Once the evacuation was taken care of the police focused on containing the fire The biggest headache were the eight diesel generator vans that were parked right next to the stage “The stage was already up in flames and we were worried that if the wind changed direction and the vans caught fire it would have been a disaster” recalled an officer The first challenge was to find the drivers of these vans who had the keys “We located the drivers but they were so scared that some of them could not even enter the key in the key hole Majority of these vehicles were then pushed by fire brigade and police officials away from the stage” said the senior officer According to authorities there were at least 12 horses who had been brought to the Chowpatty since Saturday They were lined up across the tinned barricades put up on the shore “The horses were part of one of the performances They were with their caretakers close to the stage When the fire broke out the barricades were broken for people to escape The caretakers were also alerted to take the horses to a safe spot ahead at the beach None of the horses was injured” said a police officer For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related

through an uneven field mucky in parts due to water leaking from pipe lies a cluster of 10 huts at Marabel village of Kadana taluka in Mahisagar district In veranda of a hut a framed of photograph of Rama Vechad Khant garlanded and a lamp lit alongside is placed on a plastic chair even as mourners gathered outside speak in hushed voices His wife Kali dressed in a red saree — veil covering her face — and traditional silver jewellery sans the vermillion sits beside the chair as her childen Shailesh (16) Kapila (15) and Dharmesh (13) recollect the evening of November 27 when their father returned from an “outing” and complained of “chest pain” Rama was one of the three people who died reportedly after he consumed spurious liquor said to be distributed by local politicians during the recently concluded local body elections in this tribal-dominated district Locals say over 50 people from several villages in Santrampur and Kadana talukas were taken ill just days ahead of the taluka panchayat polls on November 29 Though police suspect as many as six people died due to consumption of spurious liquor allegedly distributed BJP and Congress workers most villagers deny any knowledge of hooch intake or political link Shailesh who helped his father Rama as a farm labourer earning a meagre Rs 20 a day says “That day he said he had to go out He returned in the evening and said he was not well Immediately he began to vomi and we had to rush him to a hospital in Santrampur (about 20km) He died within a few hours” Shailesh and Kali say they have no idea if Rama consumed illicit liquor allegedly distributed by BJP’s taluka candidate Harish Khant The villagers allege police allowed an autopsy on Rama’s body without their consent “In our tradition we do not perform autopsy but the hospital did it on its own without asking us We do not know why the report says that Rama drank alcohol Nobody came here to distribute any alcohol and we do not know if Rama went to a party with someone” says Dhola a village elder and Rama’s neighbour On the night of November 27 Arjan Natha Patadia 50 a resident of Shial village around 4 km from Marabel who lived in a mudhouse with his son Shailesh and nephews complained of severe chest pain and nausea He was rushed to the Santrampur hospital where he died within hours Like Rama Arjan’s autopsy conducted was at the instruction of police confirmed that he had died due to consumption of spurious alcohol Arjan who worked as a wireman with the Gujarat Electricity Board (GEB) had died within hours of Rama’s death Shial villagers say they were “lucky” to have escaped death that evening when most consumed the cheap liquor distributed in 200 ml plastic pouches by workers of political parties However Shailesh (30) claims his father was a “teetotaler” “Why are you interested in my father’s death None of us in this village have ever seen alcohol No one came here to distribute alcohol ever” Shailesh a farm labourer responds coldly to a query A few meters from Arjan’s home an elderly Kanti however says “Workers of political parties came here two days before the polling for the taluka and the district panchayat polls They distributed the ‘potlis (pouches)’ and asked everyone to vote for them That day men in the village abandoned work and some took up the job of evenly distributing the booty of liquor received by the parties It was evening and almost immediately many complained of blurred visions vomiting and sweating Those who did not drink the liquor were lucky” In Santrampur taluka too villagers reject police’s claim of deaths due to consumption of hooch In Chikdara which is close to Bugad na Muvada village where police reported the death one Bharat Chauhan on December 1 locals immediately point in direction of the neighbouring village when asked about distribution of spurious alcohol “Nothing has happened in our village” many of them claim brushing aside any more questions At Bugad village several men gather near a roadside house in the evening tucking into a suspicious blue plastic container Two men rush indoors with the containers as they see a car approaching them When asked loud about Chauhan a man inside replies “There is no body in his house now” Soon there is another voice from inside the house — “He means to say there is no one called Bharat Chauhan here No one distributed alcohol here We do not drink” Further down the road another villager Bhura however says two people have died there in a week “One man named Dinesh died due to alcohol and police had come here to question some people But no one will talk about it Police will return to harass us” he says At least three persons still critically ill with blurred vision are currently undergoing treatment at Ahmedabad civil hospital No cooperation from villagers in the investigation has become a hurdle in taking action against the accused says Usha Rada Mahisagar SP “We have arrested seven persons from Kadana and Santrampur belonging to political parties We believe that at least six persons have died but we have been unable to access these families Most of them cremated the bodies soon after the death Those who have taken ill have refused to complain or speak about the fact that they consumed alcohol They fear they will land into trouble in view of the prohibition law Moreover the tribal area is ridden with superstitious beliefs… Wherever my officers go to inquire about the recent deaths people say they died due to ‘fury of the goddess’ It has made the task difficult” Rada tells The Indian Express The SP says the probe has revealed that political parties procured the spurious liquor from Dhoth village in Rajasthan’s Dungarpur district Among those arrested are BJP candidate Harish Khant from Vada Jampa
