against Hampshire for his Lancashire county side (Source: AP) Top News Haseeb Hameed might have looked a promising cricketer when he first stepped out in the middle donning the English Test kits but an injury at the early stage of his career and a dismal performance with the bat in subsequent domestic matches kept him out of contention from getting picked in the England team But a half-century in the second innings for his county side Lancashire against Middlesex has given the much required “confidence” to the 20-year-old “It was nice to get that confidence and that feeling of having scored runs again” he was quoted as saying by ESPNCricinfo “That second innings I gave myself the best chance to succeed and was determined to make it difficult for them to get me out to go back to the basics” he said “Thankfully I could do that and I was happy The longer I spent out in the middle the better I felt I was very happy with it” he added Talking about his innings Hameed insisted that “keeping things simple” was the key to success in this particular knock “Last year I had a good season and I guess when you are doing things well there’s a nice rhythm and tempo to it and you keep things simple That’s what I tried to do this innings – I didn’t overthink things too much I just focused on the things that I do well the things that I did in the past – that one-ball focus each ball as it comes I’m glad I could execute the way I wanted” Hameed said “You are always optimistic that the work you put in will come to fruition This year it has taken longer for this to happen I wouldn’t say I had doubts about when I would score runs again it is just I have had to make sure I have continued to learn from those phases from the down times” added Haseeb Mentioning about the different formats the youngster said that changing between them is challenging as the players need to play in a slightly different manner “It is challenging to change between the different formats Although my game doesn’t change too much for white-ball cricket there is a slightly different skill set you do take more risks and play in a slightly different manner so definitely that’s been one of the learnings I’ve taken from this season” “Definitely that’s been one of the learnings I’ve taken so far from this season” he said “You hear a lot of successful sportspeople say that these tough times make you a better cricketer and a better person and I feel like I have learned a lot about myself not only as a player but as a person as well Hopefully I can look back on the last few months and say ‘you know what they have made me a better player than I would have been had things gone my way from the word go” he added Haseeb talked about England batting coach Mark Ramprakash and the kind of learning he has been getting from the former cricketer “I had a really good session with Ramps and I enjoy working with him” he said “He told me ‘the game is in good order all you need is one score’ so it gave me a lot of confidence to hear that from the England batting coach That net was really good and being around the group was quite nice “Ramps is very confident in me understanding and knowing my game He doesn’t try to tinker with it too much I’m sure that if there is something he thinks will benefit me then he will tell me In that instance there was nothing he told me if anything he was just reassuring me and giving me the confidence that my game is in a good place so I could approach this game with confidence” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App

minister was cancelled by the government in January 2014 This was within a year of the deal running into trouble in February 2013 with the arrest of Giuseppe Orsi the CEO of AgustaWestland’s parent company Finmeccanica Since then the names of several middlemen fixers politicians military personnel and their relatives have been doing the rounds in Indian and Italian courts While the Italian Court of Appeals has convicted Orsi and former AgustaWestland head Bruno Spagnolini the Indian leg of the investigation is still on It’s undeniable that the case involves corruption but the current political noise over the deal revived after the Italian court’s judgment came into Indian hands should not be allowed to interfere with the ongoing investigation which must be completed impartially and without political point-scoring Although the Defence Procurement Policy (DPP) of 2001 had permitted defence agents few had registered owing to the lack of clarity on rules The ground had always remained fertile for middlemen and commissions As a result despite the UPA government’s rote recourse to blanket bans blacklisting and pre-emptive freezes — which had impaired India’s military modernisation project by denying its armed forces access to indispensable technology and equipment — scams such as AgustaWestland could not be prevented And yet the AgustaWestland affair is one rare instance of India getting some things right Wrongdoing was detected and the government had taken the right call in cancelling the deal to punish the firm while stopping short of blacklisting it Through the subsequent recovery of the bank guarantee between January and June 2014 — since AgustaWestland had violated the integrity pact — India had also recovered more than the 45 per cent of the total contract value paid to AgustaWestland Subsequent to the AgustaWestland scandal although not consequent to it Indian defence procurement has been undergoing several changes with a much more transparent system in place under the new DPP that includes three key reforms: Legalising defence agents reviewing blacklisting norms and changing systemic attitudes Whether the overhaul of the Indian defence sector sticks to the new roadmap or not and whether or not it transforms itself fast enough only time will tell As far as the AgustaWestland case is concerned the CBI must be urged to conclude
