stun the West Indies in Friday’s one-day international at Queens Sports Club and qualify for the triangular series final In a rain-affected match Chisoro scored an unbeaten 42 and then claimed figures of 2 for 23 in six overs to help Zimbabwe recover from a disastrous position and win by five runs on Duckworth-Lewis method Zimbabwe players celebrate a West Indies wicket AFP As a result Zimbabwe qualified for Sunday’s final against Sri Lanka with their first win of the tournament while the West Indies were forced to head home after losing two close games and tying another Such an outcome seemed highly improbable when West Indian spin duo Devendra Bishoo and Ashley Nurse picked up three wickets apiece to reduce Zimbabwe to 89 for seven The hosts made a solid start after winning the toss and electing to bat only for a rain delay upset their momentum and reduce the game to 49 overs per side Bishoo bowled Hamilton Masakadza and Brian Chari after the resumption before Nurse dismissed left-handers Craig Ervine and Sean Williams in the same over to leave Zimbabwe 63 for five With Peter Moor and Graeme Cremer also succumbing to the spinners Zimbabwe lost six wickets for 41

match-winning partnership with Chisoro The duo scored 50 runs from the final five overs of the innings on their way to an unbroken partnership of 91 — a Zimbabwean record for the ninth wicket in ODIs — as Sikandar Raza finished unbeaten on 76 and Chisoro made a career-best 42 not out "We were really under the pump with the bat at one stage but that partnership at the end to get us up to 218 was outstanding" said Zimbabwe captain Graeme Cremer "Then the guys came out and showed great intensity with the ball" Zimbabwe started their defence with 21 overs of spin and the plan paid off Chisoro struck twice in his first 11 deliveries and with the other spinners maintaining the pressure the West Indians sunk to 93 for five and found themselves behind the Duckworth-Lewis curve with the rain closing in once more Although Jonathan Carter made 42 not out and Jason Holder tried to pull the game back with a late flurry of boundaries the West Indies could not get back in front before the umpires took the players off the field midway through the 28th over "We’re disappointed about not being able to finish off the game" said Holder "We lacked the killer instinct but we’re trying to gel together as a team" Beijing: India and China should comprehensively resolve challenges including the boundary question through "political acumen" and "civilisational wisdom" so that the coming generations are not "burdened" by unresolved issues President Pranab Mukherjee said on Thursday Enunciating "8 steps to a partnership of the people" for India-China relations in his address to the Peking University he noted that there is bipartisan commitment to strengthening partnership with China and said political understanding between the two countries is vital for "closer developmental partnership" President Pranab Mukherjee in China Reuters "One of the ways it could be done is through enhanced political communication In India we have a bipartisan commitment to strengthening our partnership with China The frequent contacts between our respective leaders bears testimony to this "We have broadened the ‘common ground’ and learnt to manage our differences There are challenges – including the boundary question – that still need to be addressed comprehensively" he said Making his first state visit to China as head of the state Mukherjee said while it was natural for neighbours to have differences of views on certain issues from time to time "I consider it a test of our political acumen when we are called upon to draw upon our civilisational wisdom and resolve these differences to the mutual satisfaction of both sides" "Both sides should work with the aim of ensuring that we do not burden our coming generations by leaving our unresolved problems to them I am confident that by ensuring that these matters are not aggravated and by remaining sensitive to mutual concerns we can minimise our differences and maximise our convergences" he said Copenhagen: Sweden is moving to change its rape law to shift the burden of proof from the victim to the alleged attacker in a proposal that would require people to get explicit consent before sexual contact Deputy Prime Minister Isabella Lovin said the recent #metoo anti-harassment campaign "has shown that there is a need" for the new legislation which is expected to be approved Thursday in Parliament Representational Image Reuters Under current Swedish law someone can be prosecuted for rape only if it is proven that they used threats or violence Under the proposal rape could be proven if the accuser didn’t give their explicit verbal agreement or clearly demonstrate their desire to engage in sexual activity Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said the "historic reform" which his coalition has been preparing since taking power in 2014 aims to shift the burden of proof from the victim of a rape or sexual assault to the alleged attacker Addressing victims he said: "Society is standing by your side" If the bill is approved it would go into effect on 1 July The proposal is part of a series of initiatives being put forward Others would make it illegal for Swedes to hire prostitutes abroad and increase sentences for offenders Buying sex in Sweden is already illegal Critics say the proposal wouldn’t result in more convictions Miami: President Donald Trump on Friday ordered tighter restrictions on Americans traveling to Cuba and a clampdown on US business dealings with the Caribbean island’s military saying he was canceling former president Barack Obama’s "terrible and misguided deal" with Havana Laying out his new Cuba policy in a speech in Miami Trump signed a presidential directive rolling back parts of Obama’s historic opening to the Communist-ruled country after a 2014 diplomatic breakthrough between the two former Cold War foes But Trump left in place many of Obama’s changes including the reopened US embassy in Havana even as he sought to show he was making good on a campaign promise to take a tougher line against Cuba especially over its human rights record "We will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer" Trump told a cheering crowd in Miami’s Cuban-American enclave of Little Havana including Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida who helped forge the new restrictions on Cuba "Effective immediately I am canceling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba" Trump declared as he made a full-throated assault on the government of Cuban president Raul Castro File image of US president Donald Trump AP Cuba later denounced the move as a setback in US-Cuban relations saying Trump had been badly advised and was resorting to "coercive methods of the past" that were doomed to fail The government remained willing to engage in "respectful dialogue" it said in a statement Trump’s revised approach calls for stricter enforcement of a longtime ban on Americans going to Cuba as tourists and seeks to prevent US dollars from being used to fund what the Trump administration sees as a repressive military-dominated government But facing pressure from US businesses and even some fellow Republicans to avoid turning back the clock completely in relations with Cuba the president chose to leave intact some of his Democratic predecessor’s steps toward normalisation The new policy bans most US business transactions with the Armed Forces Business Enterprises Group a Cuban conglomerate involved in all sectors of the economy But it makes some exceptions including for air and sea travel according to US officials This will essentially shield US airlines and cruise lines serving the island "We do not want US dollars to prop up a military monopoly that exploits and abuses the citizens of Cuba" Trump said pledging that US sanctions would not be lifted until Cuba frees political prisoners and holds free elections While the changes are far-reaching they appear to be less sweeping than many US pro-engagement advocates had feared Trump based his partial reversal of Obama’s Cuba measures largely on human rights grounds His critics however have questioned why his administration is now singling out Cuba for human rights abuses but downplaying the issue in other parts of the world including Saudi Arabia a close US ally Trump visited last month where political parties and protests are banned Trump however stopped short of breaking diplomatic relations restored in 2015 after more than five decades of hostilities He also will not cut off recently resumed direct US-Cuba commercial flights or cruise-ship travel though his more restrictive policy seems certain to dampen new economic ties overall The administration according to one White House official has no intention of “disrupting” existing business ventures such as one struck under Obama by Starwood Hotels Inc which is owned by Marriott International Inc to manage a historic Havana hotel Nor does Trump plan to reinstate limits that Obama lifted on the amount of the island’s coveted rum and cigars that Americans can bring home for personal use Still it will be the latest attempt by Trump to overturn parts of Obama’s presidential legacy He has already pulled the United States out of a major international climate treaty and is trying to scrap his predecessor’s landmark healthcare program When Obama announced the detente in 2014 he said that decades of US efforts to achieve change in Cuba by isolating the island had failed and it was time to try a new approach Critics of the rapprochement said Obama was giving too much away without extracting concessions from the Cuban government Castro’s government has clearly stated it does not intend to change its one-party political system Trump aides say Obama’s efforts amounted to "appeasement" and have done nothing to advance political freedoms in Cuba while benefiting the Cuban government financially "It’s hard to think of a policy that makes less sense than the prior administration’s terrible and misguided deal with the Castro regime" Trump said in Miami International human rights groups say however that renewed US efforts to isolate the island could worsen the situation by empowering Cuban hard-liners The Cuban government which has made clear it will not be pressured into reforms had no immediate comment But ordinary Cubans said they were crestfallen to be returning to an era of frostier relations with the United States with potential economic fallout for them "It’s like we are returning to the Cold War" said Cuban designer Idania del Rio who joined a group of friends in a hotel in Old Havana to watch the speech in English on CNN Trump announced his new approach at the Manuel Artime Theater in the heart of the United States’ largest Cuban-American and Cuban exile community whose support aides believe helped him win Florida in the election The venue is named after a leader of the failed US-backed Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in 1961 against Fidel Castro’s revolutionary government “I have trust in Trump to do the right thing when it comes to Cuba” said Jorge Saurez 66 a retired physician in Little Havana Trump’s vow to keep the broader decades-old US economic embargo on Cuba firmly in place drew criticism from some US farmers especially growers of corn soybeans and rice Obama’s détente has already lifted exports and raised hopes for more gains which they said were now in doubt Mexico’s foreign ministry urged the United States and Cuba to resolve their differences "via dialogue" But Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro whose Leftist government is Cuba’s main regional ally slammed Trump’s tightening of restrictions as an "offence" against Latin America "His speech was aggressive and threatening . revealing his contempt and ignorance" President Nicolas Maduro said in a speech "We reject Donald Trump’s declarations against our brother Cuba It is an offence against Latin America" The biggest change in travel policy will be that Americans making educational people-to-people trips one of the most popular authorised categories can no longer go to the island on their own but only on group tours Trump’s aides said the aim was to close off a path for Americans seeking beach vacations in a country where US tourism is still officially banned US Senator Jeff Flake one of the Republican Party’s most vocal advocates for easing rules on US dealings with Cuba called for a vote on legislation lifting restrictions on American travel there But the Republican leadership in Congress has long blocked such a move and it appears unlikely to budge Under Trump’s order the Treasury and Commerce departments will be given 30 days to begin writing new regulations which will not take effect until they are complete In contentious deliberations leading up to the new policy some aides argued that Trump a former real estate magnate who won the presidency vowing to unleash US business would have a hard time defending any moves that close off the Cuban market But other advisers have contended that it is important to make good on a campaign promise to Cuban-Americans Ottawa: Canada’s electronic eavesdropping agency warned on Fridaythat hackers and foreign states may try to sway its elections in 2019 after so-called hacktivists tried but failed to influence the 2015 ballot that brought Justin Trudeau’s Liberals to power In a report the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) said hacktivists and cyber-criminals had leaked sensitive government documents and attempted to smear candidates and spread disinformation and propaganda ahead of the 2015 vote These "low sophistication" attacks "did not impact the outcome of the election" the CSE concluded But it added that hacktivists are likely to try again when Canadians return to the polls in 2019 Representational image Getty images "We judge that almost certainly multiple hacktivist groups will deploy cyber-capabilities in an attempt to influence the democratic process in 2019" the CSE said in the report adding that these groups will adapt and increasingly adopt "more sophisticated" approaches The agency pointed to hacker group Anonymous for example leaking secret documents in 2015 on Canadian diplomatic missions and the size of Canada’s spy network overseas to try to embarrass the incumbent Tories during the election campaign Nation-states have so far not targeted Canada’s 150-year-old democracy the CSE said But they may try in the next election the agency said depending on "how Canada’s nation-state adversaries perceive Canada’s foreign and domestic policies and on the spectrum of policies espoused by Canadian federal candidates in 2019" The report comes as US officials probe alleged Russian interference in last year’s US presidential elections and after French President Emmanuel Macron’s election campaign was subject to cyber-attacks Canadian officials avoided naming Russia or other antagonists Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said interference in elections has been "energetically discussed" at meetings of NATO and the G7 group of leading industrial powers "We are a member of the G7 we are a NATO country we are an influential voice and a leader on the world stage and so therefore there is a significant interest in influencing the direction of Canadian elections" Minister of Democratic Institutions Karina Gould told AFP "Regardless of who is behind these cyber-threats it’s important that we can protect ourselves" she said According to the CSE 13 percent of countries holding national elections this year have had their democratic processes targeted and the number and sophistication of the attacks are predicted to rise The agency analyzed dozens of incidents over the past decade that victimized almost 40 nations It concluded that in almost 80 percent of the cases state actors were behind attempts to influence the democratic process The rest mostly involved cyber-criminals stealing voter information The CSE report said political parties politicians and the media in Canada faced the greatest vulnerability to cyber-threats and "influence operations" The Canadian election system itself still relies on paper ballots The report noted that provincial and municipal elections could also be targeted "In particular we know that certain nation-states have core interests that can be affected by Canadian policies related to natural resources which are often made at the provincial/territorial level" said the report "Hacktivists may begin to view sub-national elections. as worthy targets"
