Assembly elections London: The suspect in the north London mosque attack that killed one person has been identified as a resident of Cardiff Wales who had previously voiced his hatred for Muslims the media reported Police presence was stepped up near the Finsbury Park mosque after the incident in north London Reuters According to witnesses Darren Osborne 47 shouted "I want to kill all Muslims" as he drove a van in the early hours of Monday into a crowd of worshippers near the Finsbury Park Mosque on Seven Sisters Road reports the Guardian One person died and 11 were injured; Osborne survived the attack and was arrested on suspicion of commission preparation or instigation of terrorism including murder and attempted murder Camera phone footage showed him being captured by worshippers who attacked him as he screamed "Kill me" When he was eventually arrested and loaded into the back of a police van in handcuffs he waved to the gathered crowd Osborne’s neighbours in Pentwyn said that over the weekend he had called a 12-year-old Muslim an "inbred" and was thrown out of a local pub for getting drunk "cursing Muslims and saying he would do some damage" Neighbours in the Cardiff suburb where he had lived for several years described him as "aggressive" and "strange" They told the Guardian that it was unclear what he did for work Some said he was jobless but bought and sold cars Osborne’s mother sister and nephew said in a statement: "We are massively in shock it’s unbelievable It still hasn’t really sunk in" reports the BBC According to the Metropolitan Police there was no immediate evidence that Osborne was an active member of a far right organisation However the incident is being treated as a terror attack Security Minister Ben Wallace said the suspect was not known to the security services and was believed to have acted alone On Monday night hundreds including religious leaders took part in a vigil After a short silence chairman of the mosque Mohammed Kozbar told those gathered that the attack was "on our families on our freedom on our dignity" the BBC reported It is the fourth terror attack in the UK in three months after incidents in Westminster Manchester and on London Bridge Prime Minister Theresa May and opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn visited the mosque on Monday morning Can we for a moment give credit where it is due Is it every time a dustbowl that visiting teams bite the dust on against the Indian spinners Is it that hard to look at an Indian victory without ‘undue’ advantage that home conditions offer "Honestly one day I would like to walk into a press conference and stop answering questions on the pitch because that’s as good as Indian pitch one can get" said India’s premier tweaker Ravichandran Ashwin at a press conference during the Vizag Test and there is indeed merit in his statement Indian players celebrate the wicket of England’s Joe Root in the second Test at Vizag AFP There were considerable misgivings over the pitch at the ACA-VDCA ground especially after a Ranji Trophy match between Rajasthan and Assam got over in three days with the latter being bundled out for 69 in their second innings lasting only 202 overs Apprehension turned into near-paranoia when New Zealand were shot out for 79 in the ODI series decider with leg-spinner Amit Mishra (5/18) running through the Kiwis What hardly anybody seemed to care about is that it was the same pitch on which India had scored 269 batting first and the pitch could not have deteriorated so much in 50 overs that the New Zealand found it difficult to even survive Also had the pitch really been of dubious quality India would not have scored as many runs as they did It was not meant to be such a low-scoring contest; the Kiwis made it out to be one When India notched up a 246-run victory at Vizag some of us wasted no time to put the pitch under inquisition Comparisons were drawn with the pitches during the home series against South Africa last year Mention were made of the (in)famous Mumbai Test against Australia in 2004 which saw the visitors being skittled out for 93 in a little over two hours Mention was also made of the Nagpur Test against the South Africans last year which saw the Proteas collapse for 79 in their first innings However what was chosen not to be mentioned was that Hashim Amla had negotiated 167 balls and Faf Du Plessis 152 in the Proteas’ second innings when batting would have been much tougher Both of them scored 39 runs each but more importantly they showed that it wasn’t impossible to survive on the wicket Then in Delhi during the last Test on another spinners’ paradise South Africa were faced with the task of saving the match and who stepped forward Amla again and AB de Villiers The former played a 244-ball 25 which was not surprising for somebody who can be virtually immovable once he drops anchor on the wicket But de Villiers’ 297-ball 43 would have given special delight to the cricket connoisseur He had only a few months ago slammed the fastest hundred in international cricket off 31 balls and to see him mould himself according to the situation was an absolute treat Amla Du Plessis and de Villiers weren’t successful in saving the day for their team but they showed that with proper technique temperament and application one can tackle a difficult pitch In the same way Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow showed in England’s first at Vizag as did Alastair Cook and Haseeb Hameed in their second that in spite of the hardship one could spend time at the wicket if he had the wherewithal for it It is a given that Test pitches in India would be heavily stacked in favour of the spinners considering that spin has been India’s big strength The day we start to make Indian pitches mimic those in England Australia or South Africa would signal the death of the dynamism and beauty of Test cricket for it lies in different pitches having characters of their own Adjusting to the spin in the subcontinent one day the pace and bounce in Australia the other and indeed the seam movement in England on yet another day makes a batsman and a team complete It is with this objective in mind that the Australians had prepared special pitches with homegrown red clay that would give the feel of Indian square turners in order to prepare for the tour of the subcontinent England however looked ill-prepared overall to tackle Ashwin Ravindra Jadeja and Jayant Yadav at Vizag Their vulnerability against spin were exposed during the tour of Bangladesh when a 19-year-old spinner Mehedi Hasan Miraz wreaked havoc as England collapsed from 100/0 to 164 all-out in a session to concede a 108-run defeat in the second Test last month The Vizag pitch even the English commentators acknowledged was not unplayable though difficult without a doubt India perhaps did have an early advantage having won the toss but the mettle of true champions is gauged from their ability to turn adversity into opportunity However the England spinners could not utilise the conditions as well as their Indian counterparts Zafar Ansari Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid together gave away 344 runs for 10 wickets in the match while the Indian spin trio conceded 279 runs sharing 15 wickets between them Ansari had a forgettable outing going wicketless and giving away 45 runs in the first innings He didn’t bowl in the second It was the same way that South Africa’s Imran Tahir Simon Harmer and Dane Piedt were left behind by their Indian counterparts Therefore making villains out of the playing surfaces because of the travails of foreign batsmen thereby undermining India’s home successes has continued for long Curiously however pitches are not blamed when Indian batsmen are made to hop on a WACA or a Gabba but it is asked instead why BCCI doesn’t make fast and bouncy pitches at home for the Indians to prepare better It is perhaps time for us to be a bit more consistent in the application of standards and appreciate that Virat Kohli’s team earned their victory at Vizag as much as England lost the match The pitch lasted almost the entire course of the match and was certainly no demon

Updated: September 27 2016 7:39 am Apparently after the West Indies Test in July Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble sat with Pujara and told him to improve his strike-rate (PTI Photo) Top News One perceptible in Cheteshwar Pujara’s batting in the Kanpur Test wherein he registered two half-centuries was the pace at which those runs have come In the first innings his 62 came off only 109 deliveries that is a brisk strike rate of 5688 the most by any Indian batsman who had consumed more than 50 deliveries In the second innings he scored 78 off 152 balls bringing up his half-century in only 80 balls Though Pujara is not an outlandishly defensive batsman—though the public perception is such—he has been of late a little restrained perhaps a little too over-conscious of his lack of big hundreds after the one he got in the third Test in Sri Lanka last year A case in point was his laborious 46 against the West Indies in Sabina Park in July wherein he consumed 159 balls for his 46 Apparently after the match which ended in a draw thanks to a resolute middle-order resistance by West Indies lower order in the second innings Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble sat with Pujara and told him to improve his strike-rate The Indian skipper responding to Sandeep Patil’s revelation about the discussion to a Kolkata-based channel ABP Live revealed much the same in the post-match press conference “In the West Indies what we spoke about was the need for (upping the ante) Obviously he (Pujara) is someone who absorbs pressure really well but after a certain stage in the innings there comes a time when the team needs a few runs in those situations and that’s where we felt that he has enough ability to capitalise So it was just about conveying that to him He has worked hard on his game He scored at a good strike-rate in Duleep Trophy and even on this wicket he was (at times) scoring at a 65 almost 70 strike-rate which for me was a revelation Patil had in that interview likened Pujara’s contrasting performances to Dilip Kumar’s popular film Ram aur Shyam “We saw Ram in West Indies We have been witnessing Shyam here and this is real Cheteshwar Pujara Not only Virat Kumble and national selectors too spoke to Pujara in the Caribbean asking him to improve his strike-rate” Patil said Anyway Pujara has responded spectacularly much to Kohli’s delight “He used to bat this way especially in home conditions when he scored his double hundred knocks against England and Australia He would dominate the spinners and that was exactly what we wanted him to do We didn’t want him to go into a shell We want Pujara to bat to his potential Once he starts scoring runs along with the composure that he has it will be very difficult for the opposition to have the control of the game And that’s all we wanted to convey to him and he is someone who understands what the team wants and he has worked hard on his game” said Kohli “He has come back and he is playing more positively that we as a team and me personally as a captain really appreciate He didn’t tell us that ‘this is my comfort zone and I’m not going to get out of it’ That’s the kind of character you need in a team to win
