Zaheer ---wisden cricketer of the year...

Zaheer Khan has been felicitated on being a named one of the Five Cricketers of the Year by Wisden Cricketer's Almanack.

In a short ceremony in Bangalore, Rahul Dravid presented Zaheer with a leather-bound copy of the Wisden 2008. Zaheer was recognised by Wisden as "the Indian left-armer who ended England's six-year sequence of being unbeaten in home Test series". Zaheer ended the three-Test series with 18 wickets at 20.33 and his 9 for 134 was instrumental in their victory in Nottingham, a win that set up the 1-0 triumph.

Zaheer said the award was a true reflection of his efforts in the last year. He said that while he was not a great reader of cricket books he had been inspired after reading The Art of Fast Bowling by his childhood idol Dennis Lillee. "Apart from Lillee, I have followed Glen McGrath, Allan Donald and Wasim Akram."

Dravid cited Zaheer's performances as one of the chief reasons for India's successes in England and South Africa. "Zaheer's performance in England and the whole of the last year was truly exceptional," he said. "He led the attack really well and that was critical to me as the captain. I could just throw the ball to him and I knew he would run in and lead the attack well.

"I still remember the Test match we won in Trent Bridge," he said off the match remembered for Zaheer getting fired up after seeing some jellybeans on the pitch. "The game was on a knife-edge: Michael Vaughan had just scored a hundred and they [England] were just behind us. We needed a wicket as chasing anything more than 150-160 last would have been tough task on that Trent Bridge wicket.

"We needed some one to stand up and be counted. We took the new ball and Zaheer responded - he took three wickets in that spell which ensured that we won that Test match and the series. It's a just reward for some one who started off with such promise in 2000 but had to endure injuries on the way. He has worked hard and is fighting back. India's success depends on how well Zaheer does.

"After Javagal Srinath, he has taken the mantle of leading the Indian attack. With a good new group of young bowlers coming through, Zaheer has an added responsibility to lead the attack for the next three years. I wish him all the best and hope he takes care of the injuries as he has all the talent and the nous required of a strike bowler."

Wisden chose Ian Bell, Ryan Sidebottom and Ottis Gibson and Shivnarine Chanderpaul alongside Zaheer for their outstanding achievement during the English season of 2007.

Tendulkar set to return!!!

It s now almost certain that sachin tendulkar will make his ipl dedut against the chennai super kings and he ll leading his mumbai indians side....The news is a shot in the arm for Mumbai who played the first half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in the absence of Tendulkar, forced to sit out due to groin injury.

But Tendulkar announced today that the rehabilitation process had been successful and there was no "discomfort" and that he would open Mumbai's innings along with Sanath Jayasuriya.

"I will be playing on May 14. It's looking very good and I'm feeling very positive," Tendulkar said after a two-hour long batting session at the Wankhede Stadium. He said it was really "tough" for him to sit out but acknowledged the support of the fitness staff who had "really worked hard, especially the physio and the masseur".

Tendulkar first picked up the injury during the CB Series in Australia and it got worse after the first Test against South Africa in Chennai, forcing him to miss the final two matches of the series. He was unable to recover for the start of the IPL, missing Mumbai's first seven games.

Though Mumbai lost their first four games, Tendulkar was careful not to return before he was completely fit. "It was disappointing to miss the two Tests against South African and then seven IPL games. But during the first half of the rehabilitation I had to completely rest and followed it by strengthening of the muscles and working out a bit. With the help of the fitness staff all the things went fine and I'm feeling strong now and there is no discomfort."

In his absence Harbhajan Singh led Mumbai for the first three games and after he was banned for an on-field row with Sreesanth, Shaun Pollock came in as the stand-in captain. Asked if it would be difficult for the side to have another new captain especially when Pollock was proving to be successful, Tendulkar said the players had supported each other through it all and they understood each other well.

"I will be the captain. Shaun was a makeshift captain and he did a terrific job and the other senior players have also contributed well. It's not about who the captain is but it's about helping each other and that's what Mumbai Indians have been doing and will continue to do."

Despite his minimal exposure to the Twenty20 format - he has played only five games so far - Tendulkar was looking ahead to the challenge ahead. "I always try hard and I've always given my best." Mumbai are currently placed sixth in the points table, just above the Deccan Chargers and the Bangalore Royal Challengers.

10 Little Things you can do for the Environment

1. Use a glass when brushing your teeth. Every year, billions of liters of fresh water is wasted by simply not using a glass when brushing your teeth.

2. Don't use straws. They say the straw is the most stupid invention. They are unnecessary and only add to our waste problem.


3. Say NO to plastics when shopping. Bring your own reusable bags when doing your grocery, or when buying single items like books or cd's, a plastic bag, or even a paper bag is unnecessary.


4. Turn off the lights. When there is ample daylight or when no one is in the room. You not only save on electricity, you also lower temperature as light gives off heat.


5. Walk. Take the stairs. Or car pool or take public transportation. You not only lower your carbon gas emissions, you are also doing your heart good when you walk regularly.


6. Unplug cell phone chargers after use. As well as all unused electronic appliances. Some appliances use more electricity even when not in use. Microwave oven with timers uses more electricity on stand by mode the entire day than when you cook dinner with it.


7. Use both sides of the paper. And make sure to recycle it after. You not only lessen your wastes but you also help stop the unnecessary cutting of more trees.


8. Turn off shower when soaping. And make sure to avoid long and frequent showers. Showering three times a day not only uses precious fresh water, but also creates more waste water that goes into our rivers and lakes. It dries your skin too.


9. Never burn anything. Burned resources are lost forever. Burning also releases harmful substances into the atmosphere. Reduce and reuse always. Compost and recycle what you can.


10. Tell your friends about this. Spread the word, and together we can make a difference

THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOUR CELLPHONE COULD DO

There are a few things that can be done in times of grave emergencies.

Your mobile phone can actually be a life saver or an emergency tool for

survival. Check out the things that you can do with it: -


1


EMERGENCY


*The Emergency Number worldwide for **Mobile**is112...* If you find

yourself out of coverage area of your mobile network and there is an

emergency,dial 112and the mobile will search any existing network to

establish the emergency number for you,and interestingly this number 112

can be dialed even if the keypad is locked.
**Try it out.**

2


Have you locked your keys in the car? Does you car have remote keys?



This may come in handy someday. Good reason to own a cell phone:

If you lock your keys in the car and the spare keys are at home, call

someone at home on their cell phone from your cell phone.

Hold your cell phone about a foot from your car door and have the person


at your home press the unlock button, holding it near the mobile phone on


their end. Your car will unlock.
Saves someone from having to drive your

keys to you. Distance is no object. You could be hundreds of miles away,

and if you can reach someone who has the other "remote" for your car, you

can unlock the doors (or the trunk).

Hidden
Batterypower


Imagine your cell battery isvery low, you are expecting animportant call

and you don't have a charger.Nokia instrument comes with a reserve

battery.
To activate, press the keys *3370# Your cell will restart with

this reserve and the instrument will show a50% increase in battery. This

reserve will get charged when you charge your cell next time.

AND

How to disable a STOLEN mobile phone?

To check your Mobile phone's serial number, key in the following digits on your phone:

* # 0 6 #


A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your


handset. Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. when your phone get


stolen, you can phone your service provider and give them this code. They


will then be able to block your handset so even if the thief changes the


SIM card, your phone will be totally useless.


You probably won't get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it can't use/sell it either.

If everybody does this, there would be no point in people stealing mobile phones.
