India win off last ball against Australia

India won T20 against Australia

SYDNEY – In a stunning run chase India won their third and final Twenty20 match against Australia off the last ball on Sunday to take the series 3-0.

Australia made a formidable 197 for five but India replied with 200 for three against an inexperienced attack. They needed 17 to win off the last over and Suresh Raina hit a boundary off the final ball for victory.

Stand-in Australian skipper Shane Watson, who had scored an unbeaten century and also claimed the vital wicket of Shikhar Dhawan, appeared to have won his side the match when he conceded just five runs from the 19th over.

But rookie bowler Andrew Tye (0-51) could not handle the pressure in the 20th. The first two balls went for a four and six from Yuvraj Singh (15 not out), paving the way for Raina’s last-ball heroics.

Raina should have been stumped by debut-ant Cameron Bancroft off the first ball he faced from young spinner Cameron Boyce (2-28), and made the most of his good fortune to score 49 off 25 balls.

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli again led the Indian batting, both posting half-centuries. For much of the chase India looked to have the target under control after taking full advantage of some wayward bowling by pace-man Shaun Tait (0-46). But Sharma (52) and Kohli (50) both fell to Boyce as the match tightened up. Kohli, named man of the series, was thrilled to have completed a clean sweep of the T20s after India lost the one-day international series. “We wanted to finish off well and get a clean sweep and we’ve done it,” he said.
The much-maligned Watson led from the front for Australia in a masterful solo performance. He probably played himself into Australia’s squad for the upcoming Twenty (20) World Cup with his unbeaten 124 from 71 balls, the second-highest score in the format at international level.
The 34-year-old was promoted to the captaincy due to the injury-enforced absence of Aaron Finch and opened the batting. Dropped on 56 by Kohli, he hit six sixes and posted the biggest T20 international score by an Australian.

Ocean warming ‘underestimated,’ study finds

Ocean warming ‘underestimated,’ study finds

The amount of sea level rise that comes from the oceans warming and expanding has been underestimated, and is likely about twice as much as previously calculated, German researchers said Monday. The findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a peer-reviewed US journal, suggest that increasingly severe storm surges could be anticipated as a result.

Sea level can mount due to two factors – melting ice and the thermal expansion of water as it warms. Until now, researchers have believed the oceans rose between 0.7 to one millimeter per year due to thermal expansion. But a fresh look at the latest satellite data from 2002 to 2014 shows the seas are expanding about 1.4 millimeters a year, said the study.

“To date, we have underestimated how much the heat-related expansion of the water mass in the oceans contributes to a global rise in sea level,” said co-author Jurgen Kusche, a professor at the University of Bonn.

The overall sea level rise rate is about 2.74 millimeters per year, combining both thermal expansion and melting ice. Sea level rise was also found to vary substantially from place to place, with the rate around the Philippines “five times the global rate.”

Meanwhile, sea level on the US West Coast is largely stable because there is hardly any ocean warming in that area, said the findings.
