Happy that my team won, says Rahul Tripathi after missing out on maiden ton

first_imgRahul Tripathi lead from the front with a stylish 93 off just 52 balls to steer Rising Pune Supergiant to a four-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on Wednesday.The Pune bowlers put up a disciplined effort to limit KKR to 155/8 before Tripathi fashioned his team’s win with a blinder.The visiting team got home with four balls to spare with Tripathi missing out on a well-deserved hundred. He was adjudged the man-of-the-match for his exploits with the bat.”I enjoyed my batting today. I was getting good starts, but was not able to convert it. Happy that my team won today. I’m just trying to middle the ball, trying to concentrate on the wicket and not on the outside. I’m happy that I’m able to do well. I’m just watching the ball, hitting and it is coming off well,” he said at the post-match prize distribution ceremony.Tripathi reached his fifty in breath-taking fashion, scooping the ball after a shuffle at the crease, off just 23 balls – becoming the quickest RPS player to reach the milestone.Born in Ranchi and raised in Maharashtra, the 26-year-old Tripathi, who made IPL debut this season, showed fine composure as he held on despite wickets falling around him – Ajinkya Rahane (11), Steve Smith (9), Manoj Tiwary (8), last match’s hero Ben Stokes (14) and MS Dhoni (5).”My role was just to play till the end. The coach (Stephen Fleming) and Smithy (captain Steve Smith) told me to be there till the end, so I was doing it ball by ball. The ball was coming on nicely and I tried enjoying myself out there in the middle,” he said.advertisementHis knock was studded with 9 fours and 7 sixes. His previous best in the IPL was 59 which he had scored against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in his fourth game this season.On being asked if hitting such lusty blows comes naturally to him, he said: “Yes! I hit six sixes in an over twice in the local tournament. I’m happy that I’m doing well and hopefully I will continue hitting.”Tripathi has been in tremendous form in this season of the IPL, having scored thirty-plus scores in all of the games he has played, barring Pune’s last game against Gujarat Lions, in which he lost his wicket for just six runs.last_img read more

first_img At the handover ceremony at the SRC’s Hope Gardens Office in Kingston, Technical Information Officer at the CEIS, Carol Davis, said this component will help the students to understand the step-by-step process of various projects, and how they operate. Approximately 66 local and international students will be participating in the action component of the ‘Energy For Young Minds’ (EFYM) programme this year. The EFYM is an online resource tool for secondary students being spearheaded by the Caribbean Energy Information System (CEIS) Department of the Scientific Research Council (SRC). Story Highlights Approximately 66 local and international students will be participating in the action component of the ‘Energy For Young Minds’ (EFYM) programme this year.The EFYM is an online resource tool for secondary students being spearheaded by the Caribbean Energy Information System (CEIS) Department of the Scientific Research Council (SRC).It received a sponsorship boost on Thursday, May 31 from Marathon Insurance Brokers.At the handover ceremony at the SRC’s Hope Gardens Office in Kingston, Technical Information Officer at the CEIS, Carol Davis, said this component will help the students to understand the step-by-step process of various projects, and how they operate.The students will be involved in a two-week residential camp from July 27 to August 9, where they will be exposed to various companies and institutions utilising different aspects of energy.Executive Director at the SRC, Dr. Cliff Riley, said the students will be going through the organisations to get a better understanding and to appreciate the process.“We want them to not only know that electrons are the medium through which electricity passes, because they can’t see the electrons, but they can see the light bulb, they can see the solar panels and they can engage in the process of doing the necessary connections and the positioning of the panels, so they can better appreciate what is happening at a level where their eyes can’t see it,” Dr. Riley explained.“It’s one thing to go through the various theories, laws and principles, but how do we make this relatable; how do we translate and package science in such a way that persons can understand and interact with it,” he added.Dr. Riley argued that solutions will not come from the aged population; it will come from the youth, “so we have to support them, we have to create an environment where they are listened to, where they are encouraged, and where we mentor and transfer some of our knowledge and experiences to these youngsters”.Participants in the programme will include students from more than 20 schools in Jamaica, Trinidad and Barbados.They will visit locations such as the Jamaica Public Service, Wigton Wind Farm, local universities as well as a selection of cultural sites.The EFYM helps students with content for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) subjects that have an energy component. Some of the subjects include Physics, Chemistry, Integrated Science, Social Studies, Geography, Electrical Installations and Environmental Studies.Other features of the EFYM include materials for School-Based Assessments (SBAs), energy calculators, manuals, CSEC syllabi, games, puzzles and quizzes.last_img read more
