NEW DELHI, India (CMC): Twenty20 World Cup hero Carlos Brathwaite once again put his all-round qualities on display with a superb Man-of-the-Match effort as Delhi Daredevils trounced Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 27 runs in the Indian Premier League here yesterday. In his first game in two weeks, Brathwaite belted a whirlwind 34 from a mere 11 deliveries as Delhi stormed to 186 for eight off 20 overs after being asked to bat at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The West Indies all-rounder then returned with his medium pace to claim three for 47 as KKR were restricted to 159 all out off 18.3 overs. Six outings First game Off-spinner Sunil Narine, meanwhile, claimed three for 22 from three overs. West Indies Test and one-day captain Jason Holder finished with none for 35 from four overs in his first game of the season. In reply, opener Robin Uthappa stroked 72 from 52 balls, but Suryakumar Yadav, with 21, was the only other batsman to pass 20, as KKR collapsed. Brathwaite proved the architect of their demise, slicing through the middle order with a potent spell. He removed the dangerous Yusuf Pathan for 10 in his first over – the eighth of the innings – before accounting for Yadav in his third over and Rajagopal Satish for 17 in his final over. For Delhi, the victory was their fourth in six outings and it moved them into second spot on eight points while KKR lost their third in seven games and slipped to third, remaining on eight points. Brathwaite was a vital part of Delhi’s revival after the hosts slipped to 32 for three in the fifth over. Karun Nair top-scored with 68 from 50 deliveries, adding 105 for the fourth wicket with Englishman Sam Billings, whose 54 came from 34 balls and included three fours and two sixes. When Nair and Chris Morris (0) fell in the space of three deliveries in the 17th over, Delhi were stuttering on 137 for five, but Brathwaite and Billings put on a frenetic 37 off just 12 balls to give the innings impetus. The first two deliveries that Brathwaite faced disappeared for boundaries and he followed up by smashing left-arm spinner Brad Hogg over square leg for six in the next over, which leaked 18 runs. In the final over, he slammed the first ball from West Indies teammate Andre Russell over midwicket for six, but fell to the next delivery, caught at short fine leg off a slower ball. Seamer Russell conceded only four runs from the remaining four deliveries to finish with the excellent figures of three for 26 from his four overs.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale could help determine the future of Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino.The European champions have been tracking Pochettino for the best part of two years and are prepared to match United’s offer for the former Southampton boss. United are believed to be in the race for Pochettino after sacking Jose Mourinho last week. That means that Los Blancos must dig deep in the summer to stand any chance of winning the battle for the former Espanyol boss.Spurs are reportedly looking at least £45m in compensation and Pochettino is expected to get a massive pay rise at Old Trafford. Spurs have first option to buy back Bale on the cheap which could help the Spanish giants secure the services of Pochettino.Certainly, the idea of the Wales international returning to the club he left nearly half-a-decade ago would be a tempting one for Spurs chairman Daniel Levy.Re-signing the former PFA player of the year, even at a reduced price would be a statement of intent for the North London club for the upcoming season.Trippier and Pochettino try to clear up a war of words George Patchias – September 13, 2019 The apparent war of words between Kieran Trippier and Mauricio Pochettino is thought to be nothing more than a misunderstanding.Trippier was sold by Tottenham…At least, that’s the believe for former Tottenham Hotspur defender Terry Fenwick.He said, according to Daily Star:“The squad is fantastic already but I’m hoping Daniel and Mauricio get their heads together and bring in one or two world-class players.“If they don’t spend I think he will leave.”

The election to select the governance model for Python following the stepping down of Guido van Rossum as the BDFL earlier this year has ended and PEP 8016 was selected as the winner. PEP 8016 is the steering council model that has a focus on providing a minimal and solid foundation for governance decisions. The vote has chosen a governance PEP that will be implemented on the Python project. The winner: PEP 8016 the steering council model Authored by Nathaniel J. Smith, and Donald Stufft, this proposal involves a model for Python governance based on a steering council. The council has vast authority, which they intend to use as rarely as possible, instead, they plan to use this power to establish standard processes. The steering council committee consists of five people. A general philosophy is followed—it’s better to split up large changes into a series of small changes to be reviewed independently. As opposed to trying to do everything in one PEP, the focus is on providing a minimal and solid foundation for future governance decisions. This PEP was accepted on December 17, 2018. Goals of the steering council model The main goals of this proposal are: Sticking to the basics aka ‘be boring’. The authors don’t think Python is a good place to experiment with new and untested governance models. Hence, this proposal sticks to mature, well-known, processes that have been tested previously. A high-level approach where the council does not involve much very common in large successful open source projects. The low-level details are directly derived from Django’s governance. Being simple enough for minimum viable governance. The proposal attempts to slim things down to the minimum required, just enough to make it workable. The trimming includes the council, the core team, and the process for changing documentation. A goal is to ‘be comprehensive’. The things that need to be defined are covered well for future use. Having a clear set of rules will also help minimize confusion. To ‘be flexible and light-weight’. The authors are aware that to find the best processes for working together, it will take time and experimentation. Hence, they keep the document as minimal as possible, for maximal flexibility to adjust things later. The need for heavy-weight processes like whole-project votes is also minimized. The council will work towards maintaining the quality of and stability of the Python language and the CPython interpreter. Make contribution process easy, maintain relations with the core team, establish a decision-making process for PEPs, and so on. They have powers to make decisions on PEPs, enforce project code of conduct, etc. To know more about the election to the committee visit the Python website. Read next NumPy drops Python 2 support.
